HEAVY PERIODS Many women think that heavy periods are a normal fact of life – ‘my mum suffered it and I am suffering it’ therefore it is considered a normal part of womanhood. Heavy periods are very common in women, and usually are not a sign of anything serious – but they can cause a big disruption to your life. Heavy periods can cause tiredness from low iron in the blood, or less commonly, anemia (low red blood cells). Best lady gynecologist hospital in Jalandhar DO YOU FIND HEAVY PERIODS A PROBLEM? You may find it hard to judge whether your periods are heavy. Even talking to friends about it may not help. Women often have different ideas about what it means to have heavy periods. Here's a list of things that may mean your periods are heavy. >You use more than nine pads or tampons (or both pads and tampons) on your heaviest days. >You have to wear both a tampon and a pad (double protection). >Your period lasts more than six days. >You have to get up at night to change your protection. >You pass clots of blood. >You stain your bedding or clothes despite wearing tampons and pads. >You stay at home during your period because you are worried about having an 'accident'. >You feel tired, especially during your period. This could mean your body is low on iron. Doctors call this anemia. It happens when your body is not able to make enough new red blood cells to make up for blood you lost during your period. Your doctor can find out if you have anemia by testing a sample of your blood. If your red cell count is low, you may need treatment, such as iron tablets, to help you make more red cells.

WHAT IS CERVICAL CANCER? Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. Cancer is always named for the part of the body where it starts, even if it spreads to other body parts later. When cancer starts in the cervix, it is called cervical cancer. The cervix is the lower, narrow end of the uterus. The cervix connects the vagina (the birth canal) to the upper part of the uterus. The uterus (or womb) is where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. Cervical cancer is the easiest gynecologic cancer to prevent with regular screening tests and follow-up . It also is highly curable when found and treated early. WHO GETS CERVICAL CANCER? All women are at risk for cervical cancer. It occurs most often in women over age 30. Each year, approximately 12, 000 women in the United States get cervical cancer. The human papilla virus (HPV)is the main cause of cervical cancer.HPV is a common virus that is passed from one person to another during sex. At least half of sexually active people will have HPV at some point in their lives, but few women will get cervical cancer. WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS? Early on, cervical cancer may not cause signs and symptoms. Advanced cervical cancer may cause bleeding or discharge from the vagina that is not normal for you, such as bleeding after sex.If you have any of these signs, see your doctor. They may because by something other than cancer, but the only way to know is to see your doctor. Are there tests that can prevent cervical cancer or find it early ? There are two tests that can either help prevent cervical cancer or find it early: The Pap test(or Papsmear)looks for pre cancers, cell changes, on the cervix that can be treated, so that cervical cancer is prevented.The Pap test also can find cervical cancer early, when treatment is most effective .The Pap test is recommended for women aged 21-65 years old.

Lung cancer facts • Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths in both men and women in the India and worldwide. • Cigarette smoking is the principal risk factor for development of lung cancer. • Passive exposure to tobacco smoke also can cause lung cancer. • The two types of lung cancer, which grow and spread differently, are small cell lung cancers (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC). • The stage of lung cancer refers to the extent to which the cancer has spread in the body. •Treatment of lung cancer can involve a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy as well as newer experimental methods. The general prognosis of lung cancer is poor because doctors tend not to find the disease until it is at an advanced stage. Five-year survival is around 54% for early stage lung cancer that is localized to the lungs, but only around 4% in advanced, inoperable lung cancer. • • Smoking cessation is the most important measure that can prevent the development of lung cancer. Lung cancer doctor in Jalandhar • Cancer of the lung, like all cancers, results from an abnormality in the body's basic unit of life, the cell. Normally, the body maintains a system of checks and balances on cell growth so that cells divide to produce new cells only when new cells are needed. Disruption of this system of checks and balances on cell growth results in an uncontrolled division and proliferation of cells that eventually forms a mass known as a tumor. • Tumors can be benign or malignant; when we speak of "cancer, " we are referring to those tumors that are malignant. Benign tumors usually can be removed and do not spread to other parts of the body. Lung cancer Treatment in Jalandhar
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT ADVOCATED IN STAGE 3 OF BREAST CANCER? Stage 3A breast cancer means that the cancer has spread to four to nine axillary (armpit) lymph nodes, or has enlarged the internal mammary lymph nodes. The primary tumour may be any size. It can also mean the tumour is bigger than 5 centimetres, and small groups of cancer cells are found in the lymph nodes. Finally, stage 3A can also include tumours greater than 5 centimetres in size with involvement of one to three axillary lymph nodes or any breastbone nodes. Stage 3B means a breast tumour has invaded the chest wall or skin and may or may not have invaded up to nine lymph nodes. Stage 3C means cancer is found in 10 or more axillary lymph nodes, lymph nodes near the collarbone, or internal mammary nodes. Treatment for stage 3 breast cancers is similar to that of stage 2.
Ovarian Cysts The ovaries are the very important part of a female body. They are a in a pair in the female reproductive system and are located one on each side of the uterus. Each ovary is about the size and shape of an almond. The ovaries produce eggs and are also the main source of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone. They influence the development of a woman's breasts, body shape, and body hair. They also regulate the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. A cyst is a fluid-filled sac, and can be located anywhere in the body. Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs or pockets within or on the surface of an ovary. Different types of cysts can form in the ovary. Many cysts are completely normal. These are called functional cysts and these are very commonly found. They occur during egg formation. Functional cysts normally shrink over time, usually in few months. If you have a functional cyst, you may need a check-up once again in 1 to 2 months to make sure that the cyst has become smaller or has it completely resolved. These cysts are almost never associated with cancer. But if you are menopausal and are not having periods, you will not have functional cysts. The other types of cysts are chocolate cyst, Simple cyst, or dermoid cyst. Many women have ovarian cysts without having any symptoms. In some the cyst will cause these problems: Pressure, fullness, or pain in the abdomen Pain during sexual intercourse Painful menstrual periods and abnormal bleeding Nausea or vomiting To identify the type of cyst, the following tests are needed: 1. Pelvic ultrasound 2. CA 125 blood test- It is a tumour marker and is often elevated in ovarian cancer. The ovarian cysts can be treated in the following ways- 1. Wait and watch- The patient waits and gets re-examined in one to three months to see if the cyst has changed in size. This is a common treatment option for women who are in their childbearing years, have no symptoms, and have a simple cyst less than 5 cm size. 2. Surgery- If the cyst does not go away after few menstrual cycles, has become larger, or looks unusual on the ultrasound, causes pain, or the woman is postmenopausal, then there is a need to remove it. There are two surgical methods- Laparoscopy-if the cyst is small and looks non-cancerous on the ultrasound, CA-125 is normal then laparoscopy can be done. This procedure is done under general anaesthesia. Very small incisions of 0.5 to 1.0 cm are needed in this surgery. Open Surgery-if the cyst is solid and looks suspicious, then open surgery is needed. The incision in open surgery is quite big.

Ectopic Pregnancy What is Ectopic pregnancy? It means that pregnancy is somewhere outside the uterus. Such a pregnancy could be inside a fallopian tube or ovary or very rarely in the abdominal cavity outside the uterus. Most common is the tubal pregnancy so we are broadly talking about the fallopian tube pregnancy. Any pregnancy could be an ectopic pregnancy, so awareness of this problem is a must. This type of pregnancy usually presents with a lower abdominal pain. When in doubt an ultrasound and blood test for serum Beta HCG helps in diagnosing it. Sometimes you may not have any symptom and your routine early pregnancy ultrasound may show an ectopic pregnancy. Many times when it is left undiagnosed and allowed to go beyond six weeks of pregnancy it leads to rupture of the fallopian tube leading to bleeding inside the abdomen along with severe pain, leading to shock and the lady collapses. This is big emergency as she needs urgent surgery to stop the bleeding and she will also require blood transfusion. If managed in time the patient recovers well although her ruptured fallopian tube might have been removed. If diagnosed in the unruptured stage then ectopic pregnancy can be treated medically under supervision. One important point, as these days abortion pills are very popular and also available off the counter, be sure that you are not ectopic pregnant before using these pills. Such a situation can be life threatening. This is even more crucial in unmarried pregnant girls who take these pills very secretly. So please, please be aware of the fact that you may be ectopic pregnant so do not shy away from the doctor. Cancer Specialist doctor in Jalandhar Lady gynecologist in Jalandhar
Why Stem Cells? A stem cell is essentially a “blank” cell, capable of becoming another more differentiated cell type in the body, such as a skin cell, a muscle cell, or a nerve cell. Microscopic in size, stem cells are big news in medical and science circles because they can be used to replace or even heal damaged tissues and cells in the body. They can serve as a built-in repair system for the human body, replenishing other cells as long as a person is still alive. Advantages of Stem Cell Treatment One of the best advantages of Stem Cell Treatment is the medical benefits it provides. They have been proven to drastically improve the condition of many people with degenerative diseases. Stem Cell Treatment paved way for effective treatment discoveries. This offers great possibility for discovering cures and treatments for a wide variety of illnesses. One of the top most benefits of Stem Cell Treatment is that it is very effective, simple and convenient over to tedious, invasive options such as organ transplantations or surgery. Recent treatment In Stem Cells Recent treatment shows that stem cell regeneration has played invaluable contribution towards regeneration of damaged tissues and improvement of their functions in many intractable diseases like Cerebral Palsy, Parapleagia, renal failure, liver cirrhosis, diabetes myopathy and 72 other disorders. Though in clinical trial phases, initial results are encouraging and showing great promises. Best cancer treatment in Jalandhar Best Cancer hospital in Jalandhar
Laparoscopic Hysterectomy What is a laparoscopic hysterectomy? A laparoscopic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the uterus. A small incision is made in the belly button and a tiny camera is inserted. The surgeon watches the image from this camera on a TV screen and performs the operative procedure. Two or three other tiny incisions are made in the lower abdomen. Specialized instruments are inserted and used for the removal process. What are the advantages of a laparoscopic hysterectomy surgery? A laparoscopic hysterectomy requires only a few small incisions, compared to a traditional abdominal hysterectomy which is done through a 3-6 inch incision. As a result, there is less blood loss, less scarring and less post-operative pain. The recovery period for this laparoscopic procedure is 1-2 weeks, compared to 4-6 weeks after an abdominal hysterectomy. The risks of blood loss and infection are lower with laparoscopic hysterectomy than with an abdominal hysterectomy. In experienced hands, laparoscopic hysterectomy takes about the same length of time as an abdominal hysterectomy and involves no greater risk. Who should have laparoscopic hysterectomy surgery? Most patients who are having a hysterectomy to treat abnormal uterine bleeding or fibroids can have a laparoscopic hysterectomy. It may not be possible in some cases. For example, if the uterus is bigger than a 4 month pregnancy, if she’s had multiple previous operations in her lower abdomen. What preparations will be needed prior to surgery? There will be a pre-operative appointment prior to the day of surgery which will include a history and physical examination, blood samples, and a visit with a member of the anesthesia department. Patients should not eat or drink anything after midnight on the night before surgery. What type of anesthesia will be required? Patients are put to sleep under general anesthesia Is there a hospital stay after surgery? The majority of our patients go home the same day or the next day of their surgery. What kind of recovery can be expected? Patients should expect to take pain pills for a few days post-operatively. We encourage patients NOT to stay in bed. They should move around the house and resume normal activities as soon as they feel up to it. Some women are well enough to return to work one week after surgery. Women who have more physically demanding work should stay home for 2-3 weeks. Women can resume exercise and sex within a few weeks of the surgery. Laparoscopic patients can expect to suffer less post-operative pain than traditional hysterectomy or cesarean section patients.
