Hi, I am in age of 27 and I have side pain in only lump of my breast when I am pressing it .Is it normal or should I consult it with doctor.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate user, fibroadenoma is a benign lump in the breast which is sometimes painful during menstruation. If small and mild pain no need for any active treatment, if it is causing pain some form of hormonal management is done, if it is very big and really tender it is better to get it excised.

I am 65 years old male who has been informed as having the following problems. 1. Enlarged prostrate (informed that tis is due to age) 2. Obstruction in urinary bladdere outlet obstruction. I would like to have your considered advise regarding medication/surgery.

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Urology, MBBS
Urologist, Ahmedabad
Dear , for better advice you got to give me more details of your complaints. Bladder outlet obstruction is caused by enlarged prostate gland which is usually due to age. Give me urine report and sonography reports with full bladder volume, bladder wall thickness and post void residual urine. Do you have some delay in starting urination? how many times do you pass urine in a day and also at night? is the flow weak? do you feel that you are emptying bladder or do you feel some urine is left behind? please post the results with pictures and the answers of the questions.

I have got an infection in lymph nodes. One node is in the neck and other bulges are behind my ears and on skull. Is this a symptom of being HIV+? If yes please mention what should be done in order to get rid of it. i'm quite worried.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
For hiv you can get hiv tested in any labs. But infection in lymph node is not related to it. It could simply mean some infection in either ear or upper respiratory tract, or oral cavity. Infection could be acute or chronic like tuberculosis. It is also one of the symptoms of cancer so must get it checked and treated.

I have a white patch inside my lips. But it does not painful I chew tobacco last 2.5 years Does it causes cancer? I am 18 years old. How to treat them.

MD Radiation Oncology, ESMO Certified Medical Oncologist, DM Medical Oncology (Pursuing)

Hello lybrate-user, chewing tobacco is definitely really bad for health. It can cause cancer too. At your young age, you should abstain from such bad habits and even stop your friends from doing so. It is a very poor addiction which will damage your oral health. Your teeth will be stained making you look ugly and your mouth will be full of non healing ulcers if you don't give up this bad habit. Its my strong request to you to stop chewing tobacco. If you feel difficult to abstain, I can prescribe some medicines for same. However, your will power is most important for leaving this bad habit.

I feel pain in my left breast and even in the bone under the breast and it is unbearable pain.

MCh - Surgical Oncology, FEBS - Fellow of European Board of Surgical Oncology
Oncologist, Navi Mumbai
Its not cancer for sure. Cancer will never cause pain. Its probably related to your age - either because 1] your breasts are enlarging/ growing or 2] related to your menses or 3] Costochondritis - which means a peculiar condition affecting the joint of the ribs under your chest Kindly give more information regarding your menstrual cycle and if the pain is cyclical or non cyclical.

DNB, MBBS

Birad 2 cysts are benign and can be observed. Probably you have fibroadenosis and you can take vitamin e supplement and primosa 1000 for 2-3 months. Please also get your hormone levels checked as it is hormone dependent.

Good evening mam I am suffering from tongue carcinoma since march 16. I got treatment at RGCI&RC ROHINI DELHI. Treatment includes 6cycle of chemotherapy weekly n 35 radiations on linear accelerator VMAT. Now I have pain n inflammation in mouth due to rubbing of teeth with tongue. What to do?

BDS, MDS

You are suffering from post radiation injury to teeth and gums, there may be dryness of mouth and radiation decay of teeth along with gum inflammation. Visit a dentist to clean your teeth and evaluate salivary gland function so that you oral hygiene can improve, use tantum mouthwash daily and if required dentist may prescribe some topical medicines to improve your oral health. Get evaluation done for tongue Carcinoma time to time.

Hello lybrate-user, I understand that it is very tough to convince parents for leaving this bad habit. However, you can show my answer to him to further convince him. In my clinical practice, I have seen a lot of patients suffering from oral cancer who had addiction to tobacco. Chewing tobacco is definitely really bad for health. It can cause cancer too. It is a very poor addiction which will damage oral health. The teeth will be stained making the look ugly and the mouth will be full of non healing ulcers if he doesn't give up this bad habit. Its my strong request to persuade your father to stop chewing tobacco. If he feels difficult to abstain, I can prescribe some medicines for same. However, will power is most important for leaving this bad habit.

What's the cause of cancer? And please guide me what is the actual treatment? Then I will be grateful. Please guide me please.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Sir, cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of cells. Mostly the cause starts at genetic level when due to some faulty signals the cell grow uncontrolled and autonomously. This can be due to some chemicals, pollution pesticides radiation exposure industrial affluent, tobacco etc. Treatment depends on site of disease, stage, general condition and histopathology. It can be done by surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy etc.

I have been smoking for the last two years. Are the chances of me suffering from cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Smoking tobacco is one of the major risk factor for cancer. Inhaled tobacco gets absorbed in lungs and blood leading to not only lung or head and neck cancer but also can lead to gastrointestinal, prostate, rectum bladder etc many cancers. Unfortunately by the time one realises this it may be too late so please quit before its late.

How cancer occurs and how can we know that. What are the tips to identify and how we can cure that. Is there any cure for cancer?

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Cancer is a manufacturing defect when new cells are being formed. But this defect has a unique capacity to defy the body's immunity and multiply uncontrollably. When our body's systems are constantly renewing themselves after wear and tear by creating new cells, sometimes somethings go wrong and a defective cell is formed. Body's immunity identifies a bad cell and removes it. But when this step is skipped they keep on growing first locally in some organ and then by spreading through either lymph channels or blood stream. Based on whether the cells are growing at one place or have spread to other places the symptoms change. Locally it is either due to any lump / swelling of crores of cancer cells or due to intereference of these cells in the organ's function. For example cancer in liver cannot be easily felt from above as swelling, but it can cause symptoms like indigestion or jaundice due to interference in liver's function of helping digestion. A breast cancer on the other hand usually presents as a lump in breast or axilla. The best way a person can do, is to identify and respect all the symptoms they have, which persist or are unusual. Some good habits like breast self examination are useful in identifying a symptomless early stage cancer. Cure is a word which is used with a very high caution. Cancer is defined by two most important characteristics - metastasis i. E. Spreading to other places different than site/organ of origin, and recurrence. Few cancer cells usually remain dormant after completion of initial treatment and then re grow after some time. There are many reason and factors helping it or acting against it. So cure is a word usually not used in cancer. And that's why patients are kept on strict surveillance after treatment for 5-10 years. Experts in medical fraternity believe that a patient surviving for more than 5 years may be called cured. But there are many patients who recur with same disease even after 5 years, 10 years even more than that. The goal of treatment of cancer is to improve survival and give best quality of life possible to each patient. In medicine always is always wrong and never is never right.

Dear, since doctor has already seen it you should undergo the investigation. It may be only a benign growth which needs to be removed. Cancer is a remote possiblity unless proven otherwise.
