Cancer is uncontrolled proliferation of transformed cells in any part of the body. Neoplasm or tumor are used variably to describe any swelling or new growth. Benign growths don’t have potential to spread to other organs or parts of the body while malignancy or malignant growths have uncontrolled proliferation and metastatic potential. Transformation is multistep process with genetic alterations by which normal cells acquire malignant potential, uncontrolled proliferation capacity and capacity to spread to other parts of the body (metastasis) Worldwide cancer is responsile for 1 in 8 deaths. Most Common cancers are: Men Women Prostate breast Lung cervix and endometrium Colorectal lung What Causes Cancer? Cancer is usually multifactorial 1. Age- more in age group >60 years compared to younger age group 2. Obesity- Body mass index >30 3. Tobacco - Cigarette, Cigar, Bidi, Hookah, Smokeless tobacco like gutka, zarda etc. There is no safe form of tobacco. 4. Pan masala and supari 5. Alcohol 6. Ultraviolet rays exposure 7. Radiation Exposure 8. Genetic factors 9. Others- pollution, certain chemicals, infections Prevention of Cancer: 1. Stay away from tobacco products 2. Eat healthy and daily physical activity- fresh fruits and vegetable are good, maintain optimal body weight 3. Be safe in sun 4. Cancer awareness and early detection: alarming signs are (CAUTION)- Change in bowel or bladder habits A sore that will not heal Unusual discharge or bleeding Thickening or lump in the breast, testicles or elsewhere Indigestion or difficulty swallowing Obvious change in a wart or mole Nagging cough or hoarseness 5. Cancer Screening: screening is for healthy individuals with education. Rather than going for unnecessary blind tests, programme for screening should be planned in consultation with your oncologist as requirements are different for different cancers and differs as per age groups and gender. Also screening is not effective in all cancers. Cancer education and awareness is has due importance. Some cancers in which screening has been shown to be effective includes breast, coclon, rectum, cervix, prostate, lung in high risk groups but as mentioned earlier it is planned with participation of both individual and oncologist.

I have tumor in left breast. And I have done a blood ,mammography, x-ray test. Which is normal. What medicine for this without surgery.

You can not declare that a mass has no cancer without some tissue biopsy. If biopsy (can be done with a needle) shows no cancer, you can live with the mass. No further treatment needed. But also there are no medicines to resolve that mass. If you are okay with regular examinations and follow up with ultrasound or mammograms you can avoid surgery. In case there is any suspicion of cancer (not likely at your age) it needs to be removed. In either case, there is no way to get rid of a mass without surgery. Ag your age, though, a log of masses are not really tumors. They often disappear on their own. Check with a doctor.

Dear sir, kindly specify that in which other organ it has spread. For any radical treatment her general condition needs to be stable. She needs evaluation by surgeon if any feeding tube either nasogastric or feeding jejunostomy can be placed, in her condition palliative care or best supportive care is generally offered to make her as comfortable as possible sometimes haemostatic dose of radiation also works well to control bleeding.

What are the symptoms of cancer and causes of cancer then what are the symptoms of flu? Then causes of flu.
Some general signs and symptoms associated with, but not specific to, cancer, include: fatigue lump or area of thickening that can be felt under the skin weight changes, including unintended loss or gain skin changes, such as yellowing, darkening or redness of the skin, sores that won't heal, or changes to existing moles changes in bowel or bladder habits persistent cough or trouble breathing difficulty swallowing hoarseness persistent indigestion or discomfort after eating persistent, unexplained muscle or joint pain persistent, unexplained fevers or night sweats unexplained bleeding or bruising cancer is caused by changes (mutations) to the dna within cells. The dna inside a cell is packaged into a large number of individual genes, each of which contains a set of instructions telling the cell what functions to perform, as well as how to grow and divide. Errors in the instructions can cause the cell to stop its normal function and may allow a cell to become cancerous. People who have the flu often feel some or all of these symptoms: fever* or feeling feverish/chills. Cough. Sore throat. Runny or stuffy nose. Muscle or body aches. Headaches. Fatigue (tiredness) some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults. Three main types of influenza viruses cause the flu: type a, type b, and type c. All three virus types are spread in the same way: they leave an infected person's body in droplets whenever that person coughs, sneezes, or puts their mouth on another object.

See there are many antibiotics to control this kind of infection. But their effect depend upon type of bacteria which caused infection there. You should have to do urine culture and sensitivity testing. After that we can decide which antibiotic has to administer.

Hello lybrate-user. Pain in breast is a common phenomenon in ladies, especially young ladies in reproductive age group. That means the age in which ladies can become pregnant. Due to hormonal changes, there are certain changes that happen in breast also, leading to heaviness and dragging pain. Sometimes it is more on one side. The other cause of breast pain could be breast cancer. Usually it is associated with other breast complaints like a lump, discharge from nipple, skin ulcer etc. Although, in your age without any other complaints it is highly unlikely that it is breast cancer but cannot be ruled out 100%, only based on history. There are other rare causes of breast pain, which your surgeon will rule out on examination. So I would strongly suggest to go and visit a breast surgeon.

Yes, inheritance is not the only cause for cancer. One may develop cancer arising from a lot of causes, like smoking, alcohol, viral infections etc. So you may still be having a chance of developing cancer as for an average Indian male

It is most probably fibroadenoma, a benign lump in the breast. It can be left alone or you can have it surgically removed.
