Symptoms And Treatment Of Neck Cancer!

Neck cancer refers to the formation of cancer cells in the throat or neck region of your body. Neck cancer is commonly seen in people above sixty years of age .But people above forty can also have the chances of getting neck cancer. Though the symptoms of neck cancer can vary from one person to the other, 

Some of the common symptoms are stated as follows:

  1. Neck cancer affects the voice box, so a change in your voice can be noticed.
  2. Weight loss is also a symptom for neck cancer.
  3. A person suffering from neck cancer can also suffer from dysphagia or difficulty in swallowing.
  4. Sore throat in some cases can be considered as a symptom of neck cancer
  5. Bleeding from mouth or through your nose is also a common symptom for neck cancer.
  6. Ear pain in some cases is a symptom of neck cancer.
  7. Coughing persistently is also regarded as a symptom of neck cancer.
  8. Sometimes a lump in the neck is also noticed and it is usually painless.
  9. Some people also encounter breathing problem.
  10. In some cases a swelling of the neck, jaw or eyes can also be noticed.

Neck cancer involves certain risk factors too. Neck cancer can be treated in many ways. The following are few treatments available for neck cancer:

  1. Surgery: Your doctor can conduct a surgery for removing the tumors from your neck region. The doctor may decide to do either a microsurgery or laser treatment or endoscopy.
  2. ChemotherapyIf the tumor spreads to other regions or is large in size, then your doctor may recommend chemotherapy. 
  3. Radiation: It is used to destroy the malignant cells. It is usually conducted after removing the tumor.

These three are the common treatments followed by doctors. Your doctor may also take help of other treatments like administering drugs to control the growth of cancer cells. But, sometimes treatments fail to work if the process of metastasis starts. So you should not ignore it, as soon as you encounter any of the symptoms stated above, visiting an oncologist is highly recommended.

Dear lybrate-user, Unfortunately, till to date we have not been able to understand the mechanism of relapse with respect to the diet or immunity. Once therapy is over, as declared by the Hematologist, follow up at regular intervals is the best practice.

If breasts are getting bigger, get them examined once by a breast surgeon, especially to rule out giant Fibroadenoma which are bilateral. They may ask for an ultrasound for the same. The growth of the breasts occurs during puberty and continues upto 16-19 years. Later it increases during pregnancy due to hormonal effects. It’s the Breast tissue which determines the size of the breast more than the fat. Hence loosing weight may only marginally reduce the breast size. The option of reduction mammoplasty, which reduces size or both breasts is the option used by females world wide. Before thinking about surgery, you need proper councelling as once removed, we cannot increase the breast tissue and it will produce a scar on breast.

How to analyse ultra sound (USG Abdomen) test? What is meant by prostate of 21.1 ML with insignificant residual urine of 20.4 ML. Two freely moving calculi are seen in GB.- Cholelithiasis?

It will be very difficult for you to analyse a use abdomen report. Prostate 21.1 ml means the volume of the prostate size. It is a bit enlarged but nothing to worry about as your residual volume is post urination is only 20.4 ml. As far as the calculi in gall bladder, the size is not mentioned. But it can cause problem. Should get it operated of it is causing pain.

Symptoms of breast cancer

Possible symptoms of breast cancer include:

  • Swelling of all or part of a breast (even if no distinct lump is felt)
  • Skin irritation or dimpling
  • Breast or nipple pain
  • Nipple retraction (turning inward)
  • Redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin
  • Nipple discharge (other than breast milk)

Sometimes a breast cancer can spread to lymph nodes under the arm or around the collar bone and cause a lump or swelling there, even before the original tumour in the breast tissue is large enough to be felt. Swollen lymph nodes

Lybrate-user It is true that it is advanced disease if biopsy shows cancer as she is very young you have to get report of biopsy which which should also mention about ER/PR/HER 2 NEU status as further treatment is based on this only.

Lymph nodes are part of defense system of our body. In case of infection or inflamation it may enlage. So cause or source of infection or inflammation nedds to be found out. Proper treatment of the underlying cause may resolve lymph node swelling. Common causes of right neck lymph node swelling include dentlal infection, acute tonsilitis, pharyngitis etc.
