Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 26-year-old female and I have had PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), and I was on homeopathy for five years. Sonography reports came back normal. Now I want to know if there are any chances of it coming back as sometimes I get pain in the left ovary. Also, my grandmother has breast cancer and at times I cough and sneeze a lot. Are there any chances of me getting the same?

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concern.

PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) is not completely curable, to prevent symptoms from reappearing, you should exercise regularly and do diet modification to maintain your weight within normal BMI (body mass index). As you said you have a family history of breast cancer then you should do a self-breast examination and look for any lump, discoloration, or discharge from the nipple, and compare both breasts, if you notice any abnormality then you should visit your nearby gynecologist, or a general surgeon. You should avoid taking birth control pills as it may put people at risk for breast cancer especially those who are already at risk. Also, cough and sneezing have no relation with breast cancer which could be because of some allergy. Hope this information helps you. Feel free to ask if you have any queries.
