What are the causes of cancer and what are its symptoms and and what are its effect on humans?

DNB, MBBS

Dear sir, cancer is caused by some abnormal signal which usually control the growth of the cells. They are triggered by some carcinogens like tobacco, pollution, pesticides, industrial affluent, radiation exposure etc. They usually present as lump, mostly painless, unexplained weight loss, fever, anaemia, fatigue, non healing ulcer, difficulty in swallowing, altered bowel habits, bleeding etc. When there is uncontrolled growth of cells they start exausting body resources causing weakness, fatigue and organ failure and then start moving to other organs and effect their function aswell.

I Got A Pea Sized Lump Near My Testicle Near scrotum But Not On testicle. It Can Move Freely And Is Painless. Can You Tell Me Its Serious Or Not? Can It Be A Symptom Of Testicle Cancer?

Oncologist, Mumbai
Hello lybrate-user, if you are sure that the small lump is not on the testicle, then it is not definitely a sign of testicular cancer. If still you have any doubt, you can go for ultrasound of testes.

My grandmother has breast cancer. The biopsy result is'Invasive duct carcinoma grade 2' And her PET-CT scan result is'Hypermetabolic retroareolar right breast mass FDG avid regional lymph nodes. No FDG avid distant lesions. Her-2 result is negative. ER and PgR result is positive 90%? Strong. Doctor told that tumor is locally advanced. We have started her treatment and doctor suggested below plan - 1- 11 chemotherapy once in a week 5 chemo are already done. Doctor told that if she can't tolerate chemo then we can stop before 11. The reason doctor gave behind chemo treatment is to shrink a tumor and tumor is stick to skin so chemo will make it loose. 2- Surgery 3- 5 chemotherapy every 21 days of interval 4- Radiation 5- Hormonal treatment for 5 years My grandma is physically fit and she doesn't have BP and diabetics and any other health issues except acidity. Last week my grandma fell down and her x-ray report is'Diffuse osteopenia. Anterior wedging of L1, L2 & L3 vertebra, could represent osteoporosis collapse. She has severe pain in the back. Recently I have taken a 2nd opinion and the doctor suggested that she doesn't need chemotherapy as her ER test is positive. She told that only hormones tablet will help to shrink a tumor and she may not need surgery. She told if we give chemo to her at the age of 75, it may create health problems for her later. I'm in dilemma now. Shall we continue with chemo treatment or switch to hormone treatment? If yes then what about its side effects? If we switch to hormone treatment then the chemo which is given will create any problem? Will it be right to switch to hormone treatment after 5 chemo cycle? What are the chances of metastasis in hormone treatment? What if we have to switch to chemo again after hormone treatment? Will cancer cell become drug resistant because of first chemotherapy? Chemo drugs go in an entire body so if there are any cancer cells in initial stage then it will kill it so chances of metastasis will be less. Is it true? Does hormone treatment also help to prevent metastasis? Let me know if you need more details.

Above the age of 65 ,role of chemotherapy is very limited. Hormone receptor positive disease respond well to hormonal treatment, including shrinkage of tumour. In advanced age, and advanced tumour, first goal is surgery, if at all it's possible, followed by Radiotherapy (if required) and hormonal treatment. I need to see PET CT report Histopatho and ER PR Her 2 report. Please send me for further review.

As rightly advised by the other doctor, you need to take proper precautions before taking the blood sample. If its persistently high, then you need further evaluation. The symptoms you are having is because of increased prolactin levels in your body. The cause can be a small tumour in the brain, certain kinds of medications etc. An endocrinologist will help you with medicines to control the level of prolactin. If there is a treatable cause, then that should be treated by surgery.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. As I understand, treatment with chemotherapy drugs works by suppressing the immune system. Simultaneously, co-administration of steroids too are known to arrest systemic inflammation. On the contrary, a treatment with natural medications, including homeopathy, are usually aimed at elimination of the root cause (s) & modulation of the immune system over a period of time that not only reduces the severity of the disease & its symptoms but also can be instrumental in effecting a cure gradually. Contextually, it makes sense to integrate suitably with safe & effective natural medicines that not only help reduce/ alleviate the side effects of chemo therapies but also synergize effectively to improve clinical outcomes. Hope this helps. You can connect for further integrative traction as appropriate, anytime. Do take care and all the very best.

I'm 20 years old female I have inverted nipples and I found it as a symptom of breast cancer is it true? Bt from the day I have got matured I don't have any growth in that part is it normal or a serious matter?

Dear lybrate-user, retracted nipples are the symptoms of cancer. Inverted nipples is usually a developmental anomaly. Often by child birth and lactation, they arrive to the normal location. If they were previously protruding and then have retracted, then you need further evaluation. But if they have remained the same from childhood to present, it's not a cause for worry. A gynaecologist can guide you for this and later during child birth and lactation.

I've discovered milky white secretion from breast after my husband and I had intercourse. The fluid came due to pressure on breast. I am not pregnant neither there is any abnormal lump on my breast or inside. I am really worried about this sudden secretion as it seemed abnormal to me. But it gave me no pain. I've non-classical pcos and I am afraid if there is any hormonal imbalance in my body. What can be the causes of this secretion? Do I need to go for medical examination? I am really worried and confused. Please help me by providing relevant information.

Respected lybrate-user hi it seems only & only due to hormonal imbalance only. It has nothing to do with pressure or playful fondling at all. In my opinion you don't need any evaluation at present. Wait for 1 week if it increases or become painful then consult gynecologist otherwise not. Till then don't take stress. Thanks regards.

As you r just 14 years of age, your hormonal secretion is not yet established yet, causing hormonal imbalance and nipple pain. You can take pain killer if pain is severe other wise it will go without any treatment.
