It was 6 months before there was severe chest pain, Ct scan revealed Tuberculosis of lungs with pleural effusion in Right lower lobe. After 3 month of continuous treatment again there was pain in my chest and doctor said no need to Worry but after days there was swelling on left side of lung upper portion. Another ct scan showed. Necrosis and collection of cloudy white pus. As pus was removed and certain test were done. No Rifampicin resistance by gene expert. No afb isolated after 6 weeks. Doctor said no need to Worry take tb medicines it will be alright. But again after few days there was swelling in Right breast. Doctor says it is due to tb. Please help me out sir I am suffering from again again pus collection. Is it due to tb although I am taking my medicine. Everyday.Rcinex450. Combutol800,Pyrazinamide 1200. My rif resistance report is normal, afb culture says no afb isolated, is it CANCER or any other disease than tb? please help me out should I go any other test to confirm any other disease?

Mr. Yash. As I have gone through your problem I have to tell you that With lung tuberculosis you had cold abscess in chest wall Which occurs due to involvement of chest bones like mid chest bone sternum ribs joints of sternum and ribs this can be single or multiple this happens due to low immunity of the patient,as for treatment is concerned you are taking proper treatment some times surgical evacuation of the pus or underlying bone is to be taken out to get rid of repeated problems. Plz take care of your diet take high protein diet fruits milk as told by your treating doctor. I hope you will improve I don’t think you have any other diseases.

Symptoms of Lung Cancer In Hindi - फेफड़ों के कैंसर के लक्षण

Symptoms of Lung Cancer In Hindi - फेफड़ों के कैंसर के लक्षण

फेफड़ों में होने वाले कैंसर का मुख्य कारण इसके कोशिकाओं का अबाध गति वृद्धि करना है. आपको बता दें की यही कोशिकायें धीरे धीरे अपनी संख्या बढ़ाकर ट्यूमर में बदल जाती हैं. कैंसर से होने वाले मौत के अधिकतर खतरनाक मामलों में इसका कारण फेफड़े का कैंसर ही रहा है. फेफड़ों में होने वाले कैंसर आमतौर पर दो हिस्सों में बांटते हैं –
स्मॉल सेल लंग कैंसर (एससीएलसी)
नॉन-स्माल सेल लंग कैंसर (एनएससीएलसी)
स्मॉल सेल लंग कैंसर, नॉन-स्माल सेल लंग कैंसर की तुलना में अधिक खतरनाक है. ये भी कह सकते हैं कि एनएससीएलसी, फेफड़ों में होने वाले कैंसर का बेहद सामान्य प्रकार है. ये भी बता दें कि 80-85% फेफड़े का कैंसर एनएससीएलसी होते हैं.
फेफड़े के कैंसर के लक्षणों की शुरुवात
जब फेफड़ों में कैंसर की शुरुवात होती है तो इसका आम लक्षण खांसी होता है. फिर धीरे-धीरे ये खाँसी गंभीर होती चली जाती है. कई बार इसके ठीक होने में ज्यादा समय भी लग सकता है. फेफड़े में उत्पन्न कैंसर का एक अन्य लक्षण निमोनिया भी है जो पीड़ित को अक्सर होता रहता है. वज़न में कमी, भूख का केएम लगना, थकान महसूस करना, श्वसन में कष्ट का अनुभव, आवाज़ में बदलाव इत्यादि इसके कुछ अन्य लक्षणों में शामिल हैं. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हा फेफड़ों के कैंसर की गंभीरता को देखते हुए इसके लक्षणों को एक-एक करके समझने की कोशिश करें.
1. पेरानियोप्लास्टिक लक्षण
जाहिर है प्रत्येक बीमारी अपने साथ कुछ लक्षणों को भी लाती है जिसके आधार पर हम उसकी पहचान करते हैं. फेफड़े के कैंसर अक्सर लक्षणों के साथ होते हैं, जो ट्यूमर कोशिकाओं द्वारा हार्मोन जैसे पदार्थों के उत्पन्न होने से विकसित होते हैं. ये पेरानियोप्लास्टिक लक्षण सबसे ज़्यादा एससीएलसी में पाए जाते हैं, लेकिन किसी ट्यूमर के प्रकार के साथ भी देखे जा सकते हैं.
2. कैंसर से संबंधित लक्षण
फेफड़े के अगल-बगल के ऊतकों में उत्पन्न कैंसर के हमले से सांस लेने में अत्यधिक कष्ट का सामना करना पड़ सकता है. इस दौरान आपको खाँसने, श्वसन में परेशानी, सीने में दर्द और खाँसने के दौरान सिने में दर्द जैसे कई लक्षण नजर आ सकते हैं. यदि ये कैंसर हमारे शरीर के तंत्रिकाओं पर आक्रमण करेगा तो आपके कंधे में अत्यधिक कष्ट का अनुभव हो सकता है. बताते चलें कि यह दर्द कंधे के जरिये बांह को भी प्रभावित कर सकता है. ये भी हो सकता है कि इस वजह से स्वरतंत्री लकवा ग्रस्त हो जाए.
3. गैरविशिष्ट लक्षण
फेफड़ों के कैंसर के कुछ लक्षण ऐसे भी होते हैं जो गैरविशिष्ट लक्षणों के अन्तर्गत आते हैं. इन्हें कई प्रकार के कैंसरों के रूप में देखा जाता है, जिनमें लंग कैंसर भी शामिल है. इन लक्षणों में हमें वजन घटना, कमजोरी और थकान आदि दिखाई पड़ सकते हैं. इसके अलावा कुछ मनोवैज्ञानिक लक्षण, जैसे – अवसाद और मनोदशा में होने वाले परिवर्तन भी आम हैं.
4. मेटास्टेसिस से सम्बन्धित लक्षण
मेटास्टेसिस का मतलब है कि कैंसर अपने शुरुवाती अंग से बढ़कर अन्य अंगों तक अपना विस्तार कर चुका है. कई बार तो फेफड़ों में होने वाला कैंसर हमारे हड्डियों से फैलते हुये जोड़ों में भयंकर दर्द उटोन्न करता है. दिमाग में कैंसर का प्रसार होने की वजह से अलग-अलग न्यूरोलॉजिक लक्षण उत्पन्न हो सकते हैं. इन लक्षणों में धुंधला दिखाई पड़ना, सर दर्द, दौरे या स्ट्रोक के लक्षण जैसे कि हमारे शरीर के कुछ भागों में होने वाली सनसनी का कम या खत्म हो जाना शामिल हैं.
5. कोई लक्षण न होना
कई बार ऐसा भी हो सकता है कि इसके लक्षण हमें प्रत्यक्ष रूप से नजर न आएं. या बेहद कमजोर नजर आएं. ऐसे में लक्षणों का सामने न आना खतरनाक हो सकता है. इसलिए आपको समय-समय पर जांच कराते रहना होगा. फेफड़ों के कैंसर से पीड़ित को नियमित रूप से छाती के एक्स-रे या सीटी स्कैन द्वारा एक छोटे घाव से कराते रहना चाहिए. द्विआयामी एक्स- रे या सीटी स्कैन द्वारा परीक्षण करने पर ये गोल ट्यूमर एक सिक्के की तरह लगता है. जिन रोगियों में पहली बार लंग काकनेर का निदान कॉइन लेशन से किया जाता है, उनमें लंग कैंसर पाए जाने के समय अक्सर कोई लक्षण दिखाई नहीं देते.

If it is a proven breast cancer then the treatment depends upon the stage of disease. Usually chemotherapy followed by surgery and then further treatment according to surgical staging is done. You must urgently consult an onco surgeon for the same.

What are the symptoms of cancer, how can we know those are cancer symptoms or any other disease symptoms.

Dear mam, cancer arises from cells within out body. The cells become uncontrolled and autonomous and cause symptoms like lumps, bleeding, ulceration, abnormal weight loss, fever, altered bowel habits etc. These symptoms may be due to other diseases as well but only if they continue for a long period like over a month or so, seek medical advice.

The pain you r having is because of engorgement of milk in the breast, if baby is not drinking then you should milk it out or use breast pump. Take some painkillers. Get this problem persists then get urself examined by surgeon.

Lung cancer is very fast spreading cancer, if cancer is limited only to lungs ; then its better to go for surgery as once it involve other body parts it may get very lethal .it is best advisable to go for surgery, maintain a healthy protein diet.

Any lump in the breast or armpit is significant. It is better to see a Breast Surgeon or a surgical oncologist for the same. They would examine you and may ask for an ultrasound of the breast, with or without an FNAC or a core biopsy. Lump in arm pit could be due to Axillary fat, lipoma, accessory breast or a node, which may be due to infection or cancer. Lump in breast could be due to benign or cancerous. If you want to discuss in details, feel free to contact me directly.

First of all do a self examination of both your breasts and check for nodularity and mass. If doubtful go for mammography of breasts.

Dear, you have to be gentle while making love. Be sure at any time she did not contact infection by mishandling or sucking the nipple. Inflamed breast gives pain on touching or fondling. If breast is very tender on touch she may need a course of antibiotics, after you have seen the doctor.
