Follow the given medication as directed:- 1) 5 drops of homoeopathic causticum 30 at early morning daily before brushing teeth 2) 5 drops of homoeopathic conium mac 30 before going to bath daily. 3) 5 drops of homoeopathic baryta carb 30 just one hour before dinner daily. 4) homoeopathic mother tincture sabal serrulata q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with the aforesaid medication few changes in your lifestyle are also necessary. Lifestyle alterations to address the symptoms include decreasing fluid intake before bedtime, moderating the consumption of alcohol and caffeine-containing products, and following a timed voiding schedule. Also it would be better if you could void the urine in sitting position.

Sir, I wanted to know if bursting of cancerous tumours is a good sign of improvement or a bad sign while taking some ayurvedic treatment?

MD - Radiotherapy, MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery
Oncologist, Navi Mumbai
Bursting or tumours seen externally is not at all a sign of response. Mostly it's a sign of progression. Also I strongly believe that Ayurvedic treatment can not cure cancer. So please avoid it and visit a good Oncologist.

My gf have blood cancer, but she want to do intercourse with me ,is there any risk of transmitting cancer to me?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Cancer is NOT contagious. A healthy person cannot “catch” cancer from someone who has it. There is no evidence that close contact or things like sex, kissing, touching, sharing meals, or breathing the same air can spread cancer from one person to another.

Surgery For Esophageal Cancer - Why Should You Go For It?

Surgery For Esophageal Cancer - Why Should You Go For It?

Esophagectomy is a procedure of removing a part of the esophagus and reconstructing the same using another organ of the body. The oesophagus is the tube that connects the stomach and the mouth. This procedure is often performed in an advanced stage of esophageal cancer and Barrett’s esophagus. This procedure removes the cancer cells from the esophagus and gives relief from the symptoms. The organs from where the reconstructing tissues are taken are generally large intestine and stomach.

Many esophagectomy surgeries are performed with minimally invasive techniques. The latter is commonly known as laparoscopic surgery. This is a procedure where numerous small incisions are made in order to perform the surgery. This procedure results in faster recovery and reduced pain as compared to the conventional surgery.

Newer methods such as Robotic surgery are being adopted by many doctors these days. Procedures like these can access the oesophagus through places such as the throat, collarbone and abdomen. They make a minute incision to get to the exact location of the cancer and treat them with an improved precision, unlike the conventional surgical methods.

An important aspect of treating this condition is to determine the procedure that is going to be implemented. To determine this, doctors uses imaging techniques such as PET scan, CT scan and an MRI scan. A doctor might also prescribe other tests such as FNAC and endoscopic ultrasound. Heart evaluations are also conducted before the surgery to ensure that there are no complications involved while performing the surgery.

Before Esophagectomy

Unless the cancer is detected at a very early stage, most doctors recommend radiation or chemotherapy or both. These treatments help to shrink the size of the cancer and make for an effective oesophagectomy. Both chemotherapy and radiation have their set of side effects, which include loss of appetite, fatigue, hair loss, vomiting and skin discolouration.

After Esophagectomy

Post the procedure, a patient cannot directly consume food. He is required to consume food through a pipe for a duration of four-six weeks. Adequate nutrition is required during this phase to recover quickly. Once the patient is able to resume a normal diet, it should be ensured that he takes food in reduced quantities to make up for the reduced stomach size.

Follow-up

Almost 90% of patients who have gone through this procedure report an improved life quality. While lifestyle related adjustments have to be made, there could be regular follow-ups to ensure the below mentioned complications do not arise:

  1. Breathing-related problems
  2. Swallowing problem
  3. Effectively managing heartburn and ensuring the pain is under control
  4. A thorough review of the nutritional diet to be consumed by the patient to counter sudden weight loss.

Colorectal Cancer - How Surgery Can Be Of Help?

Colorectal Cancer - How Surgery Can Be Of Help?

If you have colorectal cancer, your healthcare team will develop a treatment plan just for you. It will be based on your needs and could include the combination of different treatments. When your healthcare team decides what treatments to offer you for colorectal cancer, it takes the following into consideration:

  • The location of the tumor or where the cancer has reappeared (recurrence)
  • The stage of cancer
  • Your general state of health
  • Your personal preferences
  • You may be offered one or more of the following treatments for colorectal cancer.

Surgery
Surgery is the main treatment for most colorectal cancers. Depending on the stage and location of the tumor, you may have one of the following types of surgery.
The local excision, resection, or local, serve primarily to remove polyps or early stage tumor which is the surface coating of colon or rectum (superficial tumor). The surgeon uses special equipment, usually an endoscope, to remove the polyp or tumor and a margin of healthy tissue all around. Local excision is also used to remove local recurrence of rectal cancer or to relieve symptoms such as pain (palliative surgery). Surgery is done to remove metastatic tumors when there is only one or a few in the liver or lungs.

Chemotherapy
Chemotherapy is a common treatment for colorectal cancer. It is often given after surgery for stage 2 or stage 3 colon cancer. Chemotherapy may be used as the primary treatment for stage 4 or recurrent colon or rectal cancer that cannot be removed by treatment.

Radiotherapy
Mostly, radiotherapy is used to treat rectal cancer. It is usually given before surgery and sometimes as part of a chemoradiotherapy (chemotherapy and radiotherapy given during the same period). It may be used after surgery for stage 3 colon cancer to help prevent the recurrence or recurrence of cancer.
Radiotherapy to the abdomen, pelvis, bones or brain can be used as a palliative treatment for advanced colorectal cancer that cannot be surgically removed. The external radiation is the type that is most commonly radiotherapy. Brachytherapy may be used in some cases.

Targeted treatment
Targeted treatment of colorectal cancer is used to treat stage 4 colorectal cancer that has spread to distant organs such as the liver or lungs. It is usually associated with chemotherapy, but can be administered alone.

Some colorectal cancer clinical trials are underway in this country and accept participants. Clinical trials aim to find new, better methods for cancer prevention, detection and treatment. Learn more about clinical trials. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
