The most common warning sign of skin cancer is a CHANGE to your skin. And the most common change is something growing on your skin. This growth can appear on the skin in many ways. The following explains the signs (what you see) and symptoms (what you feel) of the most common types of skin cancer. *. Reddish patch of dry skin that won’t heal *. Flesh-colored (or pink, red, or brown) pearl-shaped lump*. Pimple that just won’t clear *. Sore that bleeds, heals, and then returns *. Scar that feels waxy — may beskin-colored, white, or yellow *. Group of slow-growing, shiny pink or red growths — look like sores, often scaly and bleed easily *. Flat or sunken growth — feels hard, may be white or yellow. A mole on the skin that is growing, changing shape, or changing color *. A mole that looks scaly, oozes, or bleeds *. New dark spot on the skin thatlooks like a mole, but grows quickly *.

I am 33 years old. Currently I am suffering from a breast cancer. I don't have child since last 4 years of marriage. I had taken treatment for it but failed. I have question that after recovering from cancer, Will I be able to take treatment for fertility.

MD - Radiothrapy, MBBS
Oncologist, Pune
As you don't have a child, there is a option of ovum preservation before starting chemotherapy. Many women experience menopause after chemotherapy, most of them start their normal menstrual cycle within 2 years and can have normal babies. Some might have permanent menopause. Recently there are some drugs given during chemotherapy which may reduce the effects of chemotherapy on ovaries and increase chances of pregnancy later on. Please consult Radiation oncologist from your city for further information. Hope this information is helpful.

Cervical Cancer Vaccine- What to Know About It

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Cervical Cancer Vaccine- What to Know About It

Some forms of cancer, such as cervical cancer can be prevented by vaccines. Cervical cancer is the second most common form of cancer that affects women. The vaccine that prevents cervical cancer is known as the human papilloma virus(HPV) vaccination. Let's take a look at a few things you should know about this vaccination.

What is HPV?
There are over a hundred types of HPV. While some of them affect the genital area and can cause abnormal tissue growth that leads to cervical cancer others can cause anal cancer, genital warts, skin warts, cancer of the head and neck and vaginal cancer. 

When should you have the vaccination?
The human papillomavirus or HPV vaccination is most effective when administered to preteen and teenage girls. This vaccine protects them for the next ten years against the disease. One of the reasons, the HPV vaccination is given so early is that the virus can spread easily by sexual activity. Having the vaccination early can protect them from a HPV infection. The vaccine is also said to be more effective when given to girls who have not yet been infected by a strain of HPV. 

How is the vaccination given? 
The HPV vaccination is given in the form of three injections spread over six months. The second dose is given two months after the first dose and the final dose is administered six months after the first dose. There is more than one name for the HPV vaccination. Gardasil and cervarix are the most common amongst these. Many doctors suggest no matter which one you choose, the same vaccination be used for all three doses. 

How effective is the vaccination?
Along with protecting against cervical cancer, the HPV vaccine also protects women against vaginal, anal and oropharynx cancer. Some of the vaccines also protect against genital warts. However, the vaccination cannot be used to treat existing HPV infections and is less effective when given to women who have already been infected with a strain of the virus. 

Is there anyone who should not have this vaccine?
The HPV vaccine is not recommended for pregnant women. Do not have the vaccination if you are already suffering from a severe illness. The vaccination is also not recommended for women who are allergic to yeast or latex. 

What are the side effects of the HPV vaccination?
The HPV vaccination has minor side effects that may include mild soreness at the injection site, a headache or low fever. Some women may also feel dizzy or faint after the injection. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain are some of the other side effects associated with this vaccination. Apart from taking a dose of vaccine, it is important that you go for regular full body check up as well, to prevent yourself from various ailments.

Blood cancer is a wide term and includes various types of leukemias. The common symptoms include repeated infections and severe weakness.

Go for a complete checkup. I don't think there is anything to worry. After complete assesment you decide whether you want to go through homeopathic treatment or allopathic treatment. There r lots of good homeopathic medicines for this type of conditions.

Why we can not stop the growth of the cancer cell and why the ratio of diabetes in america is high.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of cells which may be triggered by some genetic mutations may be due to chemicals, pollution, radiation etc. Since the cause lies at genetic level the treatment has to be at that level only, but it's really very difficult to find out faulty gene which is controlling the whole process, lots of researches are going on, we may have some solutions in years to come. American lifestyle, eating habits are responsible for lifestyle related illness.

I am 18 years old and I am an boy. I have a big lumb on my right chest since 2 years. The left one is normal but the right chest appears like a breast.

Advanced Aesthetics, M.Ch - Plastic Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Indore
To the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to decrease the breast size. Male breast or gynecomastia reduction. Gynecomastia is treatable by surgery. There is no medical treatment. It is a one day out patient surgery with very gratifying results. It boosts self esteem also. It is a 1 day hospital stay surgery. It takes 1 day for consultation and investigation and 2nd day surgery and discharge in 3-4 hours. The Dr. Can examine and tell you what is the problem, gynacomastia has a breast tissue and a fat component. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication which can give the results. Surgery is the only answer. The surgery is almost painless because there are enough medications to keep the pain under control.

What is blood cancer and what is successful operation for this Faber I hope you will answer me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, blood cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of cells of one of the components of blood causing suppression of other components. White blood cells which should be few thousands may be In lakhs sometimes. It is treated by chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant, not by surgery as it needs a systemic treatment.

Sir doctors have done recently breast cancer surgery. My question is, can cancer can be completely cured by chemotherapy. Or only stops growing cancer cells?

MS, DNB (Surgical Oncology)
Oncologist, Jodhpur
Hello Mr. lybrate-user, The cure is based on the stage and their molecular profile and patients profile etc. So talking about cure without much information is misleading. I Understand with your question is that probably she is having early stage disease and underwent surgery already. Now the Oncologist is advising for Chemoth. This form of chemotherapy is given with the intention to address the microscopic cancer cells in the body and chemo drugs will kill cancer cells. I hope it should help you understand the matter. But please provide complete details than only one can talk in depth. Good luck.

I think you should go for cystoscopy or tranrectal usg. Consult a urologist and if he finds any abnormality he can suggest you biopsy. But these conditions can better be understand by a urologist.

Am I more at risk if my relatives have cancer? What do cancer stages and grades mean?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Certain type of cancers run in family like for females breast ovarian etc otherwise sometimes male breast cancer, adrenal glands sometimes hereditary colon cancers etc long list but most of the cancers diagnosed are life style related and tobacco related so inheritance of cancer will depend on type of cancer your family was suffering from. Stage means the size and the spread of disease. Grade means differentiation from normal cells (well/moderate/poor differentiation) indicating the prognosis.

Ayurveda and Thyroid Cancer

Thyroid cancer affects the thyroid glands, which are located at the base of the throat. These glands produce thyroid hormones, which help in controlling the blood pressure, heart rate, weight and the body temperature.

Thyroid cancer is primarily of four types:

  1. Anaplastic carcinoma: This is the most severe type of thyroid cancer which is rare, but spreads extremely fast once the person is affected: 
  2. Follicular carcinoma: This type of thyroid cancer can be cured, but it might relapse. Follicular cancer spreads quickly as well.
  3. Papillary carcinoma: This type of cancer is more common. It generally affects women who are still of reproductive age. The spread of papillary cancer is gradual and it is less dangerous than the types.
  4. Medullary carcinoma: This type occurs in the non thyroid cells in the thyroid gland. Medullary cancer is hereditary in nature. 

Thyroid cancer has the following signs and symptoms:

  1. Lumps in the anterior neck, close to the Adam's apple.
  2. Hoarseness
  3. Enlarged glands in the neck
  4. Swallowing difficulties
  5. Complications in breathing
  6. Neck or throat pain
  7. Persistent cough without any signs of a cold.

In Ayurveda, cancer is seen as a hindrance to the life force. The cancer cells lack prana (oxygen) and produce a growth beyond the life force. It is the result of the dominance of any of the three: 'vata', 'kapha' or 'pitta' in the body. Ayurveda is all about balancing the energies in the body. Polluted environment, processed food loaded with preservatives and salts, and certain other factors can greatly affect the 'vata', 'kapha' and 'pitta'. Thyroid is the result of an aberration in the "kapha" dosha in the body.

The endocrine system produces hormones, which help in the overall functioning of the body. The 'kapha' dosha holds the endocrine system together. The thyroid glands are an important part of the body; they are a major endocrine system. Herbs that can help with thyroid cancer:

  1. Echinacea
  2. cleavers
  3. black pepper
  4. ginger
  5. Trikatu
  6. Cayenne
  7. cardamom

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized ayurveda and ask a free question.
