What is the best way to code below instead of just repeating six times and replacing the word "profile" with  
"hobbies", "personality", "photos", "video" & "match" each time?

 
if(isset($_POST['users_profile_upd'])){
			if($_POST['users_profile_upd'] == "Y"){
		    $sql_users_profile = "AND profile.updated = '1'" ;
			$users_profile_upd_pic = $tick ; 
			}
			if($_POST['users_profile_upd'] == "N"){
		    $sql_users_profile = "AND profile.updated = '0'" ;
			$users_profile_upd_pic = $cross ; 
			}
			if($_POST['users_profile_upd'] == "A"){
		    $sql_users_profile = "";
			$users_profile_upd_pic = $question ; 
			}
}
