In the initial stages, the breast cancer has no obvious symptoms and it vary in individuals from lumps to swelling and changes in the skin.

A lump too small which is felt does not cause any unusual changes and it is unnoticed.

However, in many cases appearance of new lump or a mass is the first sign noticed. The lump may be hard to touch with uneven edges and they are painless.

But there are cases the lump is very tender, round edged and soft. More lumps are painless.

Breast Cancer Symptoms are:
Swelling of part of the breast or all parts

Breast pain.


Appearances of changes in the nipple like redness, scaly formation,
thickening of the nipple.
A nipple discharge (bloody or clear fluid)
Changes in the skin of the breast like thickening.
Arm pit with lymph nodes or a mass or lump

It is essential to note that these symptoms always an indication for a breast cancer. But in some cases the above symptoms may be a symptom of non-cancerous conditions like in an infectious cyst.

In the early stages of the breast cancer, the cancerous tissue formation is hidden inside the tissues and it is always not possible to see the cancer by naked eyes. The changes happen in the breast may not be always cancer. A lump may come by an infection and it may disappear. The changes in the skin surface of the breast may be due to sunburn. A rash may be by an allergy. But all these symptoms to be decided for a benign or malignant type of growth.

Hard to imagine the New Year without a delicious meal on the table and alcohol. However, the holidays pass, but an unpleasant aftertaste in the form of a hangover - remains. What alcohol choose to protect the body from a hangover?

Headache, nausea, intoxication - often these symptoms you feel if "sifted" poor liquor. But not all the same alcohol affects the body - it all depends on its composition. The most difficult runs hangover after drinking beverages such as cognac, brandy, whiskey and various sparkling wines. Severe headache cause red wine - because it contained tyramine. Scientists have proved that dark colored spirits, such as bourbon, cause more severe hangovers than lighter. For example, after the hangover whiskey is stronger than after vodka (in terms of an equal amount of alcohol consumed). The reason is that there is more than whiskey fusel oils and other additives which cause a terrible hangover.

Unfortunately, the producers of vodka is also not "averse" to add to your product substances which improve its taste and flavor, but the hangover after them very strong. Doctors are advised to monitor the composition of vodka as if it has a softening sugar - from this drink should be abandoned, because it only exacerbates the detrimental effect. Also, many brands to mitigate vodka added to glycerin . But, unfortunately, it only reinforces the dehydrating effect of the drink on the body than is the hangover. Different "tasty" supplements often mask poor quality alcohol, but it does not add to our health.

No less harmful to the body in the presence of alcohol, zinc and other metals that manufacturers use to sweeten the drink. For example, if you see yourself in such classic symptoms of a hangover include headache, chills, impaired kidney and liver function - most likely through drinking alcohol was a surplus of copper.

Scientists recommend that to avoid a hangover, when choosing the best alcohol preference not fashionable foreign drinks and vodka. But more importantly, to choose those brands that practically no additives, and as a softener used honey instead of sugar. The fact that the main cause of hangover are toxic acetaldehyde, alcohol which dissolves in the body. A honey contains fructose, converting these pollutants in acetic acid , which in turn, easily recycled during metabolism.

Choosing alcohol for the festive table - always read the label. Recommend to prefer vodka that purified by classical technology - without the use of additives. Then in the morning the body is bound to say thank you, but about the hangover you forget and think. Only this product can really be called vodka.

Withdrawal from alcohol, (as with any other drug), is simply a set of symptoms that occur when a person suddenly stops using it after a long period of time. Through observation and experience over time, it is observed that there is a set of symptoms that is readily identifiable. Though not everybody may have all symptoms, they are generally easily recognized and can occur in varying degrees from light to severe.

Some of the more common alcohol withdrawal symptoms can be observed by simply looking at a hangover. Headache, mild shakiness, upset stomach, and sweats are all common symptoms.

The more severe symptoms that generally occur with long-term exposure to high amounts of continuous alcohol use are the "DTs". These are called delirium tremens. People would DTs generally experience anxiety, confusion, visual, aural hallucinations and seeing things that really aren't there. Stories that illustrate DTs are seeing pink elephants, the feelings of bugs crawling on a person, etc.

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms generally occur with habitual drinkers. The reason for this is their body has become the used to high levels of alcohol intake, and actually goes through a shock when the intake is suddenly stopped.

Is there danger in alcohol withdrawal?
The answer to that question is that alcohol withdrawal can be very dangerous. Other than delirium tremens, a person who has habituated themselves to a high intake of alcohol over a long period of time, and suddenly stops, runs a significant risk of seizures. It is suggested in the strongest possible terms that medical supervision is used for alcohol withdrawal.

A number of people wonder if withdrawal from alcohol is actually painful. The answer to this is yes it can be. The medications that are used in a medically monitored alcohol detox program allow a person to "come down" gently over a period of several days. The purpose of this is to reduce the possibility of seizures. Medically detoxing is like rolling to the bottom of a hill, quitting cold turkey is like getting to the bottom of the hill by jumping off a cliff.
