Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, this urine report does not indicate the presence of cancer. A test called urine cytology can show the presence of cancer cells in urine. I would like to know if you have any particular problems related to urination. That would help in diagnosing the problem. This report suggests possible infection. A urine culture and sensitivity test will help in choosing the antibiotics required for treatment.

If it is operable, go for surgery first. Depending on the postoperative pathology report further treatment will be decided. If it is inoperable, but nonmetastatic, then go for concomitant chemoradiotherapy first. This will be followed by surgery.

Dear , your question is perfect. You can stop smoking now. Immediately your body starts repairing process in itself. You just have to assist your body providing it enough water, oxygen, exercise and good food and of course, no more smoke. Within 6 months your lungs regain its full capacity. Body removes its toxins within one year. Liver and other organs become normal after 18 months. If there are no cancerous cells in your body, there is nothing to worry about cancer. Don't worry. Stop smoking and be happy and enjoy life. Take care.

Dear Dr, My father 75 years old diagnised with adenocarcenoma HER+(Stomach and spread to liver and colon) stg 4 in Apr 2014. He was administered weekly chemo TCH for 12 weeks followed 02 triweekly TCH chemos. The whole cycle was completed by Sep 2014. After last cycle he suffered from uncontrolled dysentry and admitted to ICU. Since then he is on normal gastric medicines but on 03 Feb he developed some dysentry for one day and same day his right hand and legs developed swelling. No further chemo can be administered as presently he is bedridden and weighs only around 30 kg. Please advise.

Adenocarcinoma stomach with metastasis is very poor survival result. and TCH is a toxic regiment but effective too. now as his general condition is not good dont give him any chemotherapy , rather supportive care is the best treatment. if his general condition improves can think of some palliative tablets like carcidrox

Dear, There is no cancer vaccine so far far preventing the cancer. Coincidental factors of cancer can be controlled like smoking, high fatty diets, use of packaged and preserved foods, inhalation of unwanted gasses, dues, dust, industrial inhalations and so on. Usage of antioxidants like fresh fruits, high fibre foods, Green leafy vegetables will help to keep you away from Cancer.
