Q. Is it possible to get ADHD from suffering a traumatizing incident? lately, after the death of my Grandmother. I have been increasingly getting the symptoms of ADHD. I have suffered from some of the symptoms during my childhood, but now they are increasingly occurring. And I am finding it really hard to listen to Teachers, follow instructions and do coursework. Is it possible this was caused by the death of my grandmother?

A. I think you should look up depression. ADHD is something that does not “pop”, more reasonable to think is that you suffer from a slight depression. Check it out and see if it fits :

Q. Is the incidence of breast cancer growing everyday? I have a small lump in my breast. My friends suggested me to have a regular mammogram as a precautionary step. My friend’s family women are having it yearly. But I am confused…Why is the need to go for mammogram without any problem. I think routine medical check-up is sufficient. Is the incidence of breast cancer growing everyday?

A. NO….its not increasing. I had my breast cancer found in early stages, 6 month back. I was lucky. You know why—I had my mammogram done just by fear of having it in future. In order to avoid any I did and was very lucky as it was found and soon cured. Most female take it as precaution and you should too. Apart from mammogram you must have clinical breast examination.
