Long term use of painkillers can cause kidney cancer

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Long term use of painkillers can cause kidney cancer
A study published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine has shown that people who regularly take painkiller drugs like ibuprofen or naproxen are 51 percent more likely to develop kidney cancer. There is no increased risk from taking aspirin or paracetamol. The mechanism through which painkillers could cause kidney disease is the inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis with resulting papillary and tubular injury, and ultimately damage to DNA.

The study analyzed data from 77,525 women in the Nurses’ Health Study and from 49,403 men in the Health Professionals Follow–up Study. The risk was related to the duration of use of the painkillers. There was a decrease in the risk by 19% if the painkiller was used for less than four years. There was a 36 per cent increase in risk of kidney cancer for people who used them regularly for 4 to 10 years. The risk increased almost three times for those who used these drugs regularly for 10 years or more.

The good news is that kidney cancer is uncommon so the risk is small for average users.

Two other important causes of kidney cancer are obesity and smoking. So people on painkillers should not smoke and should also keep their weight under control to prevent kidney cancer.

8 Reasons Why You Should Eat Tomatoes

1. Prevents cancer: as a magnificent source of vitamin c and different cell reinforcements, tomatoes can battle the development of abnormal cells that causes cancer. Lycopene has been connected with prostate tumour prevention. Epidemiologists recommend the consumption of tomato as it helps lower the possibility of prostate cancer. High fibre content of beta-carotene in fruits and vegetables has been proven to bring down the risk of colorectal cancer to a great extent.

2. Blood pressure: low sodium consumption keeps circulatory strain solid. Tomatoes are rich in potassium that helps in the same.

3. Heart's well-being: the fibre, potassium, vitamin c and choline content in tomatoes all bolster the heart's well-being. An expansion in potassium as well as a reduction in sodium is the most essential dietary change that an individual can make to lessen their danger of cardiovascular diseases. Tomatoes additionally contain folic corrosive, which keeps the homocysteine levels under control. It reduces the risk of heart diseases.

4. Diabetes: tomatoes help bring down the blood sugar level in people with type1 diabetes. Whereas, people with type 2 diabetes may have enhanced glucose, lipids and insulin levels. One measure of cherry tomatoes gives around 2 grams of fibre and helps them keep their levels neutralized.

5. Constipation: eating foods that are high in water substance and fibre like tomatoes can help with hydration and advance normal solid discharges. Fibre adds mass to stool and is important for bowel movement.

6. Eye health: tomatoes are a rich sources of lycopene, lutein and beta-carotene, which are intense cancer prevention agents. They have been helpful in protecting the eyes against harm related to the advancement of age-related macular degeneration.

7. Skin: collagen, a fundamental part of the skin, hair, nails and connective tissue, is dependent on vitamin c. An inadequacy of vitamin c leads to certain skin problems. As vitamin c is a capable cancer prevention agent, a low intake can affect the skin and cause harm from uv rays, infections and smoke. This usually results in wrinkles, hanging skin, blemishes and other antagonistic skin diseases.

8. Pregnancy: a good amount of folic acid needs to be present before and during pregnancy to ensure the infants good health inside the mother's womb. This can be found in tomatoes.

My wife has breast pain since last week. Our last child was born on January 2010 and she is not pregnant either. She have hyperthyroidism.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Pain in mammary gland during and after menses is very common and is related to hormone progesterone, which deposits extra water in breasts causing it pain. If the problem is too severe then 3 months course of medicine (low dose oc pills) can bring down the pain. Also you can take pain killers during that time.

My grand mom is suffering from cancer. What are the necessary steps in order to relief her pain?

DNB, MBBS

Which cancer and what part is affected. Please specify. For pain relief, if it is bone pain, apart from good analgesics, some times radiation therapy does wonders. We need more details about disease.

Chemotherapy can cause nausea so you should take less spicy food. Also you should avoid food which can cause infection. Take freshly prepared food. Avoid fast food at unhygienic place. Take food rich in proteins. Take high calories and low residue diet as there may be loss of appetite.

Please suggest a health checkup plan to ascertain whether a person is having cancer or not.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
There is no single test to completely eliminate the risk of cancer. However there are a few tests which depending on the patient profile, may be used suitably to detect common cancers early, so that they can be treated more effectively. There is no universal solution and varies from person to person.

You need to do another mammography if the size of the cyst/tumor is increasing or there is pain on touching. There is no need to panic before hand for you are having cancer.

I am 48 years old. Had mastectomy in 2007 t1n1mo right breast. Had chemotherapy 6 cycles and 5 years of tamoxifen. A recent breast ultrasound shows some simple cysts in the left breast. What does it indicate? is there any chance of these cysts turning malignant please Advice.

DNB, MBBS

Need not worry about simple cysts, only worrisome thing would be solid mass lesions esp irregular growth, microcalcification may also indicate premalignant lesion, also must do breast self examination for any obvious changes

Hello, if clump is there since 10 years without increasing then it must be fibroadenoma. But it will be advisable to get surgical consultation and ultrasonography of breast done.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is a genetic disease. Gene sequence gets disturbed by some injury by chemicals, tobacco, radiation exposure, adulterated food, viruses, pollution, pesticides or even spontaneously. Due to altered genetic make up, cells grow uncontrolled and exhaust body resources. Any age any gender can present with cancer, so be cautious about environment u live in, food you eat and any potential carcinogens

Being Taller Increases Your Risk of Cancer!

MBBS, AFIH, PGDMLS, MD-HRM, MD-HM
General Physician, Gurgaon
Being Taller Increases Your Risk of Cancer!

According to a major study that provides a connection between height and cancer, it is stated that taller people are more prone to developing cancer. Research has found that the risk of developing any kind of cancer in women rises by 18% for an increase of every 10 cm in height. In men, the risk rises by 11%, even though height is not as major a factor as are obesity, smoking and a bad, unhealthy diet.

Several reasons have been put forward for the above statement. One of the reasons is that the number of body cells in taller people is more than people with average height. This leads to an increase in the number of cells which could potentially turn malignant.

While individually analysing the impact of height on different cancer forms, it was found that the highest increase in risk was in skin cancer (30% for every 10 cm increase in height), while a 20% increase was noted in taller women developing breast cancer.

Development of cancer in regions including the colon and rectum is known as colorectal cancer. Long legs have been surprisingly associated with this form of cancer. In comparison with shorter people, it was reported that taller people had a higher risk percentage of developing colorectal cancer. Two hypotheses regarding the formation of colorectal cancer have been developed. One hypothesis is that taller people have longer colons, which in turn result in more surface area where colon cancer can develop. The other hypothesis is that taller people experience increased levels of growth hormones. These particularly affect the length of their legs. The growth hormone called 'insulin-like growth factor 1' is increased during puberty and is considered to be a risk factor for colorectal cancers occurring at later stages.

I gave breastfeed to my kid till 2 years but now I stop giving him. From last 3-4 days I felt pain in my left side of breast. I can't lie upside down on my bed while sleeping.

Oncologist, Delhi
Though you have done the right thing in stopping breast feeding, for how long now, have you stopped it. Milk production subsides gradually, and it may be because of the collection, that they may be full, swollen and hurting. Please be sure there is no redness and you are not running fever. These are signs of a breast abscess. You may get an ultrasound of the breast to be more sure of the problem.
