Breast health Breast health begins with a sense of what's normal for your breasts (breast awareness). For many women, breast health includes concerns about breast lumps, breast pain or nipple discharge. Know what's normal — and when to consult your doctor. WHAT ARE THE TIPS TO MAINTAIN BREAST HEALTH? To promote breast health, consider doing the following: Maintain Healthy Weight: Women who are overweight and obese have a higher risk of developing breast cancer. Oestrogen-sensitive tissues in the breast are exposed to more oestrogen in obese women than those who are of a healthy weight, and this can stimulate the growth of breast cancer. In addition, women with a body mass index of 30 or higher tend to be diagnosed with a more advanced disease than women with a lower BMI. They also face lower survival rates and a greater risk of the metastasis. Maintaining a healthy weight can eliminate this preventable risk factor and help you improve your breast health. Exercise Regularly: Physical exercise can help boost your immune system, defend against obesity, and reduce levels of insulin and oestrogen in the body, all of which can help prevent breast cancer. Plus, it can help boost bone mass, which is vital for women who have undergone endocrine therapy and chemotherapy. Take Vitamins: Low vitamin D levels have been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. In addition, low levels can increase disease recurrence and lower survival rates in women with breast cancer. Getting enough sun exposure, or getting vitamin D through supplements or fortified foods, is an important step in improving your breast health. Intake of Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Studies have shown that the higher the amount of omega- 3 fatty acids in the body, the lower the incidence of metastasis. Maintaining Hormone Levels: Hormones play a significant role in breast cancer. Anything that changes your hormone levels in an unnatural way, such as hormone-replacement therapy or contraceptives, can increase your risk of breast cancer because they can lead to excess oestrogen compounds. Get Regular Breast Cancer Screenings: Whether you book an appointment for a mammogram or clinical breast exam at a doctor’s office or take self-breast exams in the shower, make sure to screen for breast cancer regularly. Detecting the disease in its early stages is the number one way to increase your chances of survival. Breast Cancer specialist in Jalandhar
What is premature ovarian failure? This is a condition where the ovaries stop functioning before the age of 35 years. The patient presents either with absence of periods or very irregular and scanty periods. It can be diagnosed by doing FSH and Amh levels where the FSH levels are high and Amh levels are very low. The only treatment available is doing ivf using donor oocytes. Hence doing Amh and FSH levels is very important in patients above 32 yrs of age and in younger patients also if they have irregular cycles or long standing secondary amenorrhea.

PARATHYROID SURGERY Hyperparathyroidism (parathyroid disease caused by a parathyroid tumor resulting in high blood calcium) is easy if you know about the facts and the myths of parathyroid disease and hyperparathyroidism. These are the parathyroid facts There are no drugs that will make parathyroid disease better. Nearly all parathyroid patients have symptoms; 95% know it--and feel bad. Most of the rest just don't know it until the disease is fixed. Symptoms of parathyroid disease do NOT correlate with the level of calcium in the blood. Many patients with only slightly elevated calcium and parathyroid hormone will have BAD symptoms and develop lots of secondary health issues. All patients with parathyroid disease have calcium levels and PTH levels that go up and down. Fluctuating levels of calcium are typical of parathyroid disease. How high the calcium has become has nothing to do with the severity of hyperparathyroidism. It is the duration (in years) that the calcium is high that causes problems. Osteoporosis drugs have no place in the treatment of parathyroid disease. Parathyroid disease is a lethal disease. But just like high cholesterol and high blood pressure, it takes 25 years before it starts killing. There is only one treatment for parathyroid disease (hyperparathyroidism): Surgery to remove the parathyroid tumor The success rate and complication rate for parathyroid surgery is VERY dependent upon the surgeon's experience.

Fibroid Uterus Uterine Fibroids are non-cancerous tumours in the uterus. This is a most common health problem among women of child bearing age. Generally the complaint of uterine fibroid comes between the age group of 30 to 45 years. This benign tumour can cause pain, excessive menstrual bleeding, infertility. It can vary in size, from that of a few mm to as large as a melon. Small fibroids may not need treatment while large fibroid can be treated only through surgery. Very large fibroids as large as water-melon are not very common. Some women have no symptoms to indicate that they have fibroids, and will find out only on a routine ultrasound or gynaecological examination. Fibroids affect at least 20% of all women during their life. Overweight and obese women are at significantly higher risk of developing fibroids, compared to women of normal weight. Symptoms of Fibroids Anaemia (as a result of heavy periods) Discomfort in the lower abdomen (especially if fibroids are large) Retention/frequent urination Heavy painful periods Painful sex Swelling in the lower abdomen (especially if fibroids are large) Other symptoms may include: Pregnancy problems Fertility problems Repeated miscarriages A fibroid can sometimes degenerate causing fever and severe pain. During a woman's reproductive years her oestrogen and progesterone levels are high. When oestrogen levels are high, especially during pregnancy, fibroids tend to swell. When oestrogen levels are low fibroids may shrink as can be seen after menopause. Gyne doctor in Jalandhar
