My teenage sister wants to use nail polish but I have heard that many nail polishes contain formaldehyde and can cause cancer. Is it safe for my sister to use it?

MBBS

Nail perse does not have any blood supply and it rests on the nailbed and so your sister can use nail polish.

MD - Radiothrapy
Oncologist, Gurgaon
Radiation mucositis is a common problem / side effect during radiation . It results in pain which decrease oral intake of food and fluids. A step ladder approach of analgesics is advised and if required a ryles tube is also inserted through nose. In your case you should check whether your father has normal serum sodium and potassium levels as lower levels can cause altered sensorium. Thanks.

Foods that should be taken for Cancer cases

Medical officer, BHMS, CGO
Homeopath, Kolkata
1.oily fish rich in omega 3
2.carrot rich in carotene
3.Red and yellow pepper rich in vit C
4.pumpkin seeds rich in vit E and zinc
5Nuts
Six cracked brazil nuts will give you your daily selenium; 100 to 200 mcgs is the goal. Selenium is a very potent anti-cancer agent. Eight slices of wholemeal bread, an organic egg, or a large chicken breast will also be enough.
Tuna, onions, broccoli and tomatoes contain selenium too.

People who eat nuts every day (try almonds and walnuts) live longer according to research in Cancer
66: Mushrooms
There´s an enormous body of research evidence now that shows how ´medicinal´ mushrooms (Shiitake, Maiitake, cordyceps etc) boost the immune system and fight cancer. Even the button mushroom has cancer fighting ingredients. We have a great review on medicinal mushrooms (Click Here)

7: Tomatoes
Seven to ten helpings per week, especially cooked.
According to Harvard research 7-10 helpings a week cuts prostate symptoms by 40% and has an influence on many cancers e.g.: lung; colon; cervix; breast. Lycopene is the prime active ingredient, and 25 - 40 mgs the desired daily dose.

It is also found in strawberries, peppers, carrots and peaches, but one tin of tomato soup has 65 mgs alone. Lycopene helps reduce ´bad´ fat levels in the blood stream and is a strong antioxidant.

8: Green leafy vegetables
Along with avocado, beans, carrots, apricots, pumpkins, and egg yolk green vegetables will give you folic acid.
This will help your DNA to replicate properly and protect it during radiotherapy.

400 micrograms is a recommended amount. Folate, biotin, niacin and vitamin B6 are all B vitamins that help in the cancer fight. Egg yolk, greens and whole grains are the best sources.

It doesn´t just stop there. Green vegetables and sprouting seeds are a source of sulforaphanes which have strong epigenetic (cancer correcting) benefits and have been shown to aid survival from colorectal cancer.

A diet rich in greens will help alkalyse your body. A slightly alkaline body is important as it improves the performance of your immune system and research shows it stops new metastases.

9: Broccoli

Like other green cruciferous vegetables (e.g. cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts), broccoli contains fibre which helps eliminate toxins
Moreover, the fibre is rich in galactose, which binds to damaging agents in the intestine, and is one of the favourite foods of good, helpful gut bacteria (as are carrots, apples, chicory and onions).

Broccoli also contains indoles, and especially indole3carbinol which, along with its metabolite DIM, modifies and diminishes aggressive oestrogen action, can modify cellular oestrogen receptor sites, and aids in fighting oestrogen-driven cancers like some breast, prostate, brain and colorectal cancers.

I3C and DIM were also found to have action in non-oestrogen driven cancers as they can also affect the p27 cancer pathway.

10: Garlic
It is a truly wonderful food. Active ingredients like allicin seem to act to stop the spread of cancer in a number of ways, for example by stopping blood supply forming for tumours.
Garlic also kills microbes and yeasts - after taking drugs and antibiotics the body is often susceptible to these. Garlic is also anti-inflamatory in the body. It has a number of active ingredients. It contains selenium, tryptophan and sulphur-based active agents that attack cancer cells.

Two or three raw cloves of garlic raw per day will ward off more than vampires.

11: Beetroot
And cherries, aubergines, plums, red grapes - indeed any purple coloured fruits and vegeatables. They contain anthocyanins (and sometimes also resveratrol). Anthocyanins have been shown to kill cancer cells; Resveratrrol has research supporting its role in fighting certain cancers like blood and brain cancers too.

12: Pulses
Lentils, chickpeas, beans and even soya etc. are a great source of fibre and protein without the animal fat.

Eat pulses every two days.

All cysts do not change to cancer but if its reducing after some time then no need to worry. If it persists then do a fnac test to confirm. Cyst in fallopian tube can lead to problem in pregnacy but need to observe closely by usg. And if required can rescect in out before planning for pregnancy.

Hi can lymphedema arm be amputated? Lymphedema is in breast cancer survival patient.

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Well, technically it can be amputed. But what is really important, is whether it is really indicated and have other techniques of management been used. Management of lymphedema consists of good amount of exercises, physiotherapy, specific nutritional changes and care of the involved part. Lymphedema is graded into 4 grades. The treatment of grade 4, that is severe form of lymphedema is to remove excess tissue and resuture the defects. This causes decreased weight, swelling and functional improvement. You should talk to your treating clinicians about the surgeries for lymphedema, other than amputation.

Skin cancers usually presents as non healing ulcer or lump, skin discolouration or mole. Rashes may not be cancerous you must check for allergy as it is in different parts and consult dermatologist. They also can take scrapings for biopsy to know the cause of recurrent rashes.

My 21 year old sister had a tumour like something in her breast and has undergone with ultrasound of breast and her reports came hyperechoic lesion. What does that mean? And is it serious? What treatment is needed for this!

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
The exact nature of the tumor cannot be assessed only by a scan. If it is painful it is better to get the tumor removed and send it for biopsy. Only this will give us the exact nature of the tumor. If there is no pain you may keep getting frequent scans to see how the tumor size is growing and act accordingly.

Swelling can be detected in an ultrasound but to confirm whether it is a cancerous type we have to do a biopsy.
