Breast cancer is a type of a cancerous infection that develops in the skin cells of the breast. This condition is more commonly diagnosed after you have skin cancer and is more common in women than men. There are certain signs to identify this disease, which are as follows.
1. Breast lumps - Lumps are patches of skin that occur due to the thickening and swelling of the skin. Breast lumps is a very common phenomenon for women but that does not always lead to a breast cancer; however, frequent and reoccurring instances of the same increases the risk of breast cancer. A breast lump is easily identifiable through the naked eye as it looks different from the surrounding tissues.
2. Blood discharges - The nipple is one of the most sensitive areas in the human body. In case of women, it is meant to emit milk during pregnancy, in order to feed the infant externally. A probable symptom of breast cancer can also be a frequent discharge of blood from the nipple without any visible damage or injury.
3. Breast changes - If you are experiencing any visible changes in the size, appearance or shape of the breast, then it is an indicative sign that you may have breast cancer. Thus, it is of paramount importance that you observe, touch and physically examine your breast regularly for changes. If there is any major change detected then it is advisable to consult a doctor.
4. Inverted nipple - The tip of the nipple is generally bulging and pointing outwards both in cases of men and women. But sometimes the tip of the nipple is pushed inside due to excessive suction caused by the skin tissues present inside the breast around the nipple area. This suction forces the nipple to grow inwards which is abnormal and might harm the breast and skin in various ways.
However, apart from these main symptoms, some other signs are also there that increase your chances of being diagnosed with breast cancer. They are redness or pitting of the skin over your breast like an orange, peeling or scaling of the pigmented area around the nipple, dimpling of the skin on the breasts, and such others.
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

A mastectomy is surgical removal of a breast. The surgery depends on various factors and choosing a type of mastectomy best suited for an individual suffering from breast cancer requires experience and expertise. With advancing technology, there are more options available for women to opt for surgeries, which are minimally invasive and conserving in nature. Following are the various types of mastectomies and the factors, which influence them:
Types of Mastectomy
1. Total or simple mastectomy
This is a surgical procedure which involves complete removal of the breast including the nipple. The lymph nodes, which are small glands, are an important part of your immune system and are kept intact during the surgery. This form of surgery is most suitable if the cancer has not spread to the lymph nodes.
2. Preventive mastectomy
Preventive mastectomy, also known as prophylactic mastectomy, is an option for women who have a high risk of developing breast cancer. Preventive mastectomy reduces the risk of breast cancer by a huge margin. In certain cases, removal of the entire breast along with the nipple is advisable. Women who develop cancer on one breast often opt for preventive mastectomy and remove the other unaffected breast as well.
3. Partial mastectomy
Women who are in stage I or stage ii of breast cancer can choose this procedure. It is a breast conserving technique where the tumor is removed along with the tissue that surrounds it. It is followed up by radiation therapy on the remaining breast tissue, which terminates the cancer cells and stops them from spreading. There are two types of partial mastectomy, namely, lumpectomy and quadrantectomy.
4. Radical mastectomy
Although this procedure is almost out of use, it is still considered in case the cancer has spread to certain areas like the chest muscle. In this form of surgery, the breast is removed entirety along with muscles beneath it and the lymph nodes.
5. Modified mastectomy
It is a more commonly used procedure characterized by complete removal of the breast including underarm lymph nodes. The chest muscles are untouched in the procedure, therefore allowing a breast reconstruction to follow.
Factors influencing the type of mastectomy:
• Age of the individual
• Health in general
• Size of the tumor
• The spread of the tumor
• The rate of progression of the tumor
• Whether lymph nodes are affected or not. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
His month we’d like to talk with you about pcos (polycystic ovary syndrome), the most common cause of female infertility and hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age.
This information is mainly for women who are experiencing difficulty getting pregnant as well as women done having babies and having irregular menstrual bleeding, acne, excess body hair growth, and/or difficulty losing weight.
•menstrual period becoming irregular with or without difficulty getting pregnant.•menses are prolonged or infrequent over the last several months.•unwanted or excess hair growth on upper lip, chin, between breasts, on the lower abdomen, or the inner thighs.•acne.•consistent weight gain or difficulty losing weight.
How pcos occurs
•the pituitary gland secretes high levels of lh (luteinizing hormone) and the ovaries make excess androgens such as testosterone.•these increased hormone levels disrupt the normal menstrual cycle, interfere with ovulation, and lead to excess body hair and acne.•when ovulation does not occur, the egg is not released from the follicle and it forms a small cyst along the outer edge of the ovary, forming the “polycystic” appearing ovary.•it should be noted that all women diagnosed with pcos do not have polycystic appearing ovaries.
How we treat pcos
If you have pcos symptoms and live in virginia beach, norfolk, chesapeake, portsmouth or hampton roads, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our gyn doctors or nurse practitioner. Our gyn clinic will take a complete history of your menstrual cycle, pregnancies, recent weight changes, medical problems including diabetes, family history, medications you take, and surgeries you have had.
We will also perform a physical examination including a blood pressure check, weight, pelvic examination, blood tests, and possibly a vaginal ultrasound (likely done as a second visit).
Your gyn doctor will explain everything that is being done and why it is necessary. Once the test results have returned, you will have a follow-up appointment with your gynecologist to go over the results and come up with a treatment plan that resolves your problem in a way that works for you.
If the goal is a pregnancy, we will work with you to achieve that goal. Our treatment would likely include medication such as clomid to induce ovulation. That can be done through a reproductive endocrinologist. Anything more involved than clomid would need to be done through a specialist your gynecologist would recommend.
If the goal is to regulate your menstrual cycle and bring a little predictability back to your life, we can help with that as well. That can be done with oral contraceptives, the nuvaring, or taking progesterone for 10-14 days each month if you prefer to avoid a birth control pill.
If the goal is to treat the excess androgens and reduce excess body hair growth, we can treat that with a medication called aldactone. It is actually a diuretic, but it has been successful in several patients with slowing regrowth of hair after it has been removed by other means.
But first we need to determine what is causing the problem. Perhaps it is pcos, but there are other possibilities as well.
More about pcos
Pcos is associated with diabetes and excess insulin production (also known as insulin resistance). Some patients who are diagnosed with pcos may already have diabetes and some may be at risk for it in the future. This is important to know so it can be periodically screened for. We see a fair amount of women in india who fall into this category.
There is also research being done to determine if pcos is hereditary. Therefore, if your mother or sister has pcos, you may be at increased risk too. The final results of that research have not yet been released.
It is not normal, nor is it safe, to skip periods unless it is medically supervised by your gyn doctor. If your body is not having regular menstrual bleeding, you need to have that checked by a gynecologist. If it is not caused by menopause or by hormone manipulation prescribed by your doctor, you could be at risk for cancer of the uterus.
Pcos patients need to talk to their gynecologist and have a plan for having regular menstrual bleeds in order to prevent the risk of uterine cancer that can be associated with skipping periods. Women are sometimes so happy to not “deal with” bleeding, they do not stop to think about how they could be affecting their body. Please take this as a reminder -- it is not safe.
If you may be suffering from pcos symptoms, please schedule a consultation to discuss your symptoms and get a diagnosis. Once we know what we are dealing with, then the treatment plan is much easier to establish.
Dear sir, I was married 11 months back. Due to job we are in separate locations, but every weekend will meet and participate in sex, and planning for children, 2 months back I refer in Google getting fast pregnancy have to participate sex in 14th day of period cycle. Last 2 months I had met with my wife in 14th day only, but till there was no results. My wife mensuration cycle is 30 days. Now what will suggest to us? Please share.
Bladder control issues are not a normal part of aging and they are not something you have to just live with. Take control of your pelvic health by completing this short quiz to find out if it’s time for you to reach out for help:
1. Are you using the bathroom so often it disrupts your day?
2. Do you find yourself making a mental note of where all the bathrooms are when you enter a building?
3. Do you find it hard to make it to the bathroom, maybe even having an accident sometimes?
4. Are you using pads or other forms of protection to absorb bladder leakage?
5. Are you worried that you will leak will sneezing, coughing, lifting heavy objects or even laughing?
6. Have tampons become too uncomfortable to use or do they fall out?
7. Are you experiencing pressure or bulging in your vagina, especially after standing for long periods?
8. Has your urine stream become weak or turned into a spray?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, we encourage you to talk with one of our gyn doctors about your symptoms.
• Change your habits: behavioral changes like quitting smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly and avoiding heavy lifting are all daily adjustments you can make that can help prevent or even help treat bladder control problems.
• Do kegel exercises: kegel exercises strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. If you do kegel exercises regularly, you may reduce your risk of urinary incontinence and similar problems.
I want to remind you that it is never too late to start reaching your health and fitness goals. I’ve compiled 5 tips to help you reach those goals.
Build your health care team.
Create a team with whom you feel safe, comfortable and well cared for. That could include a primary care doctor, a pharmacist, a psychologist, or more. Find health professionals you trust to contact for health questions, advice and consultation.
Move your body, preferably outside.
Regardless of your physical stamina, the research is clear: we all benefit from movement. The results vary from multiple studies about what kind of exercise and for how long but it is undeniable that maintaining movement benefits not only our bodies (better health, fewer diseases, better agility and fewer falls, longer life spans) but our minds as well (lower risks of alzheimer’s disease, better mental health). Recent research indicates performing exercise outside heightens many of the beneficial effects. It can be as simple as walking.
We often eat without thinking, feeling or tasting. Rather than adopt extreme eating plans simply look at what you are picking up to put in your mouth. Do you want it? does your body want it? will it fuel you for what you need to do in the next few minutes or hours? can you afford a better option? if you forget, don’t worry about it, just try it next time.
Set reasonable goals.
Pick the better of two things. Choose the ‘healthier’ option. This may be a food or snack choice but it may be choosing to drive your son to soccer practice without the phone or radio on in the car. It may mean exploring having water instead of soda or beer with dinner, or practicing meditation instead of watching tv for hours on end. Don’t aim to be perfect. Seek out options which best support you.
Recognize all that you do.
Over 70 percent of women work outside the home, but there are relationships, housework, family occupying their time, too. It’s important to take pride and solace in all that you do. Love yourself and your body, and give credit where credit is due.
My wife's vagina doesn't get lubricated even when exited. We tried lubricant but we can't make intercourse as she has pain in her vagina when I try to insert fingers. What should we do to make first intercourse without taking alopathic medicines?
It is very common for women to experience vaginal problems due to the menstrual cycle, birth control methods, sex or aging. Vaginal odor may change according to your sexual health. Sometimes, it is wrongly interpreted as infection or any other problem but it is a naturally existing odor which can also be caused by normal sweating. Nevertheless, an unpleasant vaginal odor can also be indicative of infection, irritation or an overgrowth of vaginal bacteria. Four common reasons of vaginal odor are:
1. Bacterial vaginosis
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is an overgrowth of naturally existing bacteria in the vagina which can occur due to unprotected sex, douching or low production of lactobacilli bacteria. This can cause irritation, itching and makes women more vulnerable to sexually transmitted infection and other complications like preterm birth. Bacterial vaginosis is a very common occurrence for women in their reproductive years and is the primary reason for the vaginal odor in most cases.
2. Poor hygiene
Poor hygiene can be one of the major causes of vaginal odor. In terms of hygiene two common reasons which can cause unpleasant odor are the lack of proper washing and not wearing clean undergarments. Due to the presence of sweat around the genitalia and poor maintenance of hygiene, women often experience bad odor.
3. Forgotten tampon
A forgotten tampon can cause bacterial infection and lead to vaginal odor. The growth of bacteria along with menstrual blood can cause itching and lead to unpleasant smelling vaginal discharge. Sometimes, the infection can spread and cause serious problems like pain in the lower abdomen.
Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease which is caused by a protozoan parasite. It can cause a foul smelling odor, soreness, pain while urination and intercourse and also vaginal itching. Pregnant women suffering from this disease are more at risk to deliver premature babies. It can be treated with antibiotics and can be prevented with proper use of condoms. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.
