I want to know if there is simple medicine in alopathic,homeopathy,ayurvedic etc.My psa is 2.8 which is within normal limits but ultrasound scanning shows enlargement.Urine flow is OK so also frequency.

Oncologist, Hubli-Dharwad
how old are you? all most all male will develop enlargement of prostate after an age and if PSA is normal then elrargment may be benign not maligmant so just keep a track on PSA and if you dont have urinary problem no need to worry at all. there are medicines for symptoms but as you are asymptomatic, no need of any medicine now.

Why Is Cancer the Biggest Threat to India

Why Is Cancer the Biggest Threat to India

Cancer is the one of the biggest threat to the young Indian population because of the factors that cause cancer, but also due to late detection. However, certain bad habbits and the factors increase the risk of cancer in India.

Causes of cancer in India:

  1. Overpopulation and the problem of nutrition: As per records, India is the world's third most populous country. However, it lacks in resources to feed the multiplying number of mouths. Nutrition plays a key role in deciding the quality of a person's life. Nutrition has therefore emerged as an essential branch of research and medical care in the last few decades. Lack of nutrition directly results in weakened immunity. Your body becomes prone to diseases, some of which can be fatal. To fight off cancer cells, one must have a strong immune system that comes from the right kind of nutrition.
  2. Smoking is a recurrent habit among children and adults: Smoking can cause cancer. Every cigarette packet reads the same warning messages but it doesn't actually deter smokers in any way. Smoking is prevalent among people of all age groups in India. From poor children to conscious educated adults, all are seen smoking.
  3. A Tropical country and its woes: Tropical countries are known to face the wrath of the sun. While most places in central, western, partly eastern and southern India experience extremes of temperature in summer, other places with moderately hot summers are not exempted from the harmful UV rays. Ultraviolet rays can be very harmful for one's skin, as it can cause skin cancer. Indians have a high amount of melanin, which protects them against sun rays, but the threat exists nonetheless.
  4. The concept of fast food: A global economy has opened avenues awaiting your attention in the realm of food. To suit the tones and moods of a fast life, fast food has been made available to you. We take pride in consuming things that can be prepared in an instant: instant noodles, soups and even curries. Packaged food and junk food are sources of cancer cells.
  5. Lack of awareness regarding the most common types of cancer: Breast and cervical cancer are the two most common types of cancer eating away the health of Indians. The problem lies in being unaware about the root causes, symptoms and treatment procedures related to these kinds of cancer. Social repression turns health concerns into matters of insignificance. Women fear social alienation after coming in the open with their problems.

Hello Sir/Madam, I have inquiry related to my wife she is 29 year old ,she is suffering from breast fibroadenoma in both side breast ,total number of 7 lumps in both breast, please suggest me preferred treatment.

Gow big are the lumps. If they are small and not bothering her, you can just let them be. If they are large or causing pain or she wants to get it removed for cosmetic reasons, she may consider surgical removal. The surgery is a minor day care procedure.

One can also go for regular screening check up annually to rule out possibility of cancer.

I am 21 years old, 3 years ago gynecologist diagnosed me fibroadenosis of breast Few day ago I felt some nodule or cyst in both breast when palpate it causes pain Surgeon given me primosa capsule and natvie capsule for 6 moth. Is there any worried things in fibroadenosis of breast? What is role of above 2 capsule. How much duration I have to take this or any other drug? Rate of complications how much in this condition?

Hi, At 21 years of age, you have no need to worry about breast diseases. Breast discomfort and pain happens in all women before periods, up to 10 days before. And it usually settles after periods. The medications you mentioned don't have any great benefit, but they won't harm you. Also you breasts are still growing, and with age these nodules will settle. If you touch your breasts before periods they will fell nodules and have pain. So don't do that. Message me with specific problems and I will guide you. Do not have any unnecessary tests or surgery.

Hello Sir, My mother has diagnosed with Brain Metastases from small cell lung cancer. We have finished radiation therapy and 1st cycle of chemotherapy. Do we have medicines available for above stacancer in Homeopathy?

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Vadodara
Sujay as you have said cancer cell metastasis has already occured. it means it is secondary and advance. there are some cases in which homoeopathy has slow down the metastases, but it is more effective in primary and early stage. i totally can understand your situation right now. my advise is tobe strong. your mom is already taking radiation, you can start homoeopathy simultaneously. consult a good homoeopath with detailed case. it will help you in busting up your mom's immunity and weakness. as well as affect the prognosis.
