Pain in breast is mostly not due to cancer. It can be due to mastitis. Some persin experience pain during menstrual period or pre mentrual symptom. Sometimes it can also be caused by some drugs. Fibrocystic disease also sometimes cause pain. You need to consult any doctor to asses the exact cause in your case. You also need to provide more details to regarding factors mentioned above.

MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Meet an oncologist and if he/she suspects then can do an FNAC or Biopsy to confirm. many a times Lipoma and neurofibromas can present as multiple lumps. these are non cancerous lesions and there surgery is indicated if the lumps are painful or causing cosmetic problem, or else it can be left over.

For past few months I am facing problem in my left breast, it pains specially in night. And also there is kind of knot in my breast. Help me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, if you have found a lump in your breast, it should be evaluated by a clinician to ascertain the same and if indicated then ultrasound or mammography can be done and needle aspiration if required. Breast pain is usual if your periods are nearing due to inflammation or swelling of breast due to hormonal changes and you can do fomentation and take some pain killer for temporary period also vitamin e supplement some times help.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking opinion. As far as I understand, this injection attempts to slow down the growth of prostate cancer by lowering the levels of male hormone testosterone. Its good to note that your PSA levels have consistently decreased from as high as 41 ng/ mL in Nov 15' to as low as 1.2 ng/ mL in June 16' However, sometimes one may still have prostate cancer despite a normal PSA value. A PET CT scan, at this juncture, can help provide correct status as regards the progression of the disease. Apart from consulting your primary oncologist with the diagnostics, I would advise that you connect with an expert oncologist specializing in genito-urinary cancers for a second opinion. Simultaneously, you may decide to go for an integrative treatment with natural medicines that can help improve clinical outcomes. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.

Blood cancer needs to be treated by chemotherapy under supervision of medical/ hemato oncologist. Hair loss is only temporary and they usually grow to its full length after chemo is completed. Place of treatment depends on your location as it would be most convenient to get treatment done near the place you stay as it is a long treatment and you have to frequently visit your doctor and some times there are emergencies like low blood counts, infection etc which needs emergency management. You if you stay in remote place then you can choose a metro city nearby.

Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Can numerous fibroids and an enlarged uterus cause bladder prolapse? Why does my gynecologist think my bladder bulging into my vaginal canal is a fibroid even after I was sent to a urologist for stress incontinence issues? My son is entering middle school in the fall. What advice can I give him if he finds himself on the receiving end of cyberbullying? Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin? Which is better for covering up during a sunny day, light or dark clothes? Also, is there a danger from tanning sprays rather than tanning beds? Is breast cancer inherited? What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

Dear lybrate user, you seem to be having multiple problems, let me try to solve one by one. There could be many reasons for bladder prolapse, but most likely uterine fibroids would cause uterine prolapse. You can get a pelvic and transvaginal ultrasound done to confirm. Uncontrolled diabetes may require insulin, you should check it regularly and may continue with oral hypoglycemics if controlled with that. You must use sunscreen cream to protect your self from sun. Some breast cancer may be inherited not all. Hashimoto thyroiditis is autoimmune disease. You must consult endocrinologist.

I am 75 years old male and have enlarges prostate for the last 15 years. I have been regularly using Urimax 0.4 mg capsule once a day for all these years. Even if I miss a single dose of this I start experiencing problem in urination within next 6 hours. My question is what are the side effects of such prolonged use of this medicine and whether there is a better medicine in Ayurved or Homeopathy for this.

Dnt know about options in ayurved or homeopathy but as such no side effects with this medicine. But if you are tired of it you should go for turp. That is transurethral resection of prostate.

With proper treatment 5-yr survival rate in stage 2 breast cancer is very good. Radiotherapy will be required for tumor size more than 5 cm or when there is lymph node involvement. If the surgery is BCS not MRM, postoperative radiotherapy will be given. Chemotherapy toxicity depends in particular chemotherapy drugs. Share the details of chemotherapy treatment for further information.
