We must know the pet ct findings and the histopathology before deciding on management. If early disease it may be operated on. If locally advanced then chemo-radiation therapy, if metastatic then palliative chemotherapy number of chemotherapy depends on the response, it is usually six cycles, but depends on response

Sir, if flow of urine is slow then it could be due to urinary outlet obstruction probably due to prostatic enl argement. Needs evaluation by clinical per rectal examination, serum psa, ultrasound sometimes biopsy to rule out benign or malignant cause then only treatment can be advised according to the cause.

MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Hubli-Dharwad
First do the D & C you will get to know for sure that its cancer or not. Dont worry before the test as even if its cancer its curable as it will be a small tumor only, and if its non cancer then you need not go for any treatment, so do the test first.

My right breast has lumps and when I touch the part that is below my nipple, I feel little pain, and in my right armpit too. There is a lump in my right armpit which is sore to touch. I am a 21 year old female. What should I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Ghaziabad
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.

Obesity And Cancer

Doctor of Medicine (M.D.)
General Physician, Bangalore

Obesity and wellness

How obesity could lead to increased risk of cancer?

Local inflammation or organ inflammation

People who are obese are more likely than normal weight individuals to develop chronic local inflammation affecting organs which over time can cause dna damage and lead to organ cancers.

Insulin and cancer

People who are obese over time are often found to have increased blood levels of insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1 (igf-1). High levels of insulin and igf-1 may promote the development of colon, kidney, prostate, and other endometrial cancers. Insulin resistance due to obesity is a risk factor cancer.

Hormones play havoc

Fat cells produce what are called as adipokines, which are hormones that may stimulate or inhibit cell growth. An adipokine called leptin, which is responsible for promoting controlled cell proliferation in the blood increases with increasing body fat which could over time trigger uncontrolled cell proliferation. 
Higher amounts of estrogen produced by fat tissue, can drive the development of some cancers, such as breast and endometrial cancers

Here are the immediate steps to be taken by people who have been obese for over years now to reduce risk of cancer.

1. Immediately stop consumption of any processed food (processed dairy derivatives, processed cold storage food, canned food, sodas, ready to eat packs, instant noodles all fast food).

2. Your diet should consist of green leafy vegetables as they have anti-carcinogenic and blood purification properties, pules bell peppers, broccoli, sweet potato and peanuts for balanced intake of proteins, healthy fat which is essential for regulated cell functioning and complex carbohydrate rich in nutrients. Depending upon your metabolic type it is always better to develop a diet that best suites you in consultation with your nutritionist.

3. Add turmeric to your daily diet, (anti-inflammatory properties) refer to my postings on turmeric to have a complete understanding of how it helps and simple every day recipes to include turmeric into your diet.

4. Stop using processed oils for making your dishes and start using virgin coconut oil or virgin olive oil

5. Go for 21 days (minimum) detoxification program by carving out a diet (completely natural diet) that will flush out oxidants, toxins from the body.

6. Periodic fasting helps in reducing obesity as well as decreasing the risk of cancers.

This when followed consistently for at least 2 months, will reduce the risk of cancer in people who are obese for over years now. Consequently it is required to make certain lifestyle changes a must and a priority through out your life. You could refer to my previous postings on obesity for this.

Knowing Cervical Cancer - Causes and Symptoms

MS- Gynaecology, MBBS

Knowing Cervical Cancer - Causes and Symptoms

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer which emerges from the cervix. It occurs due to the abnormal growth of cells in the cervix (lower part of the uterus) of the female reproductive system. Cervical cancer is the most common type of cancer found in women, worldwide, and can be treated with successful results, if discovered at an initial stage.

This type of cancer can be caused by multiple factors, some of which are:

1. Human papillomavirus - One of the major causes of cervical cancer is the human papillomavirus (HPV). There are more than 100 types of HPV. During sexual intercourse, a minimum of 40 types of HPV are passed, out of which 15 of them are high risks for cervical cancer, including types 16 and 18. 7 out of 10 women, who suffer from cervical cancer, are infected by types 16 and 18.

However, most women, who are sexually active, will come under the influence of at least one type of HPV in their lifetime, without any kind of harm caused to them.

2. Smoking - Smoking increases the risk of cervical cancer in women. It helps in the development of HPV, which is a major cause of this type of cancer. If a woman is already HPV-positive, smoking increases the probability of being diagnosed with cervical cancer by leaps and bounds.

3. Oral contraceptives - Research shows that taking contraceptive pills increases the risk of cervical cancer in women. Women who've been on contraceptive pills for over 5 years are twice as more prone to being diagnosed with cervical cancer than those who are not on the pill. But as soon as you stop the intake of pills, the increased risk of cancer drops immediately.

4. Multiple pregnancies - Having multiple pregnancies is linked with increased risk of cervical cancer. Having seven or more pregnancies increases the risk of this type of cancer in those women who are already influenced by HPV by four times. And those who have had one or two full-term pregnancies, also under the influence of HPV have two to three times the risk of being diagnosed with this illness.

Symptoms

Knowing about the symptoms of cervical cancer can help in the early diagnosis of this disease. However, in the early stages of the disease, there are no such noticeable symptoms. Although these signs can help you understand if you've got cervical cancer:

1. Abnormal vaginal bleeding, i.e. bleeding after sexual intercourse or after menopause
2. Longer period cycles
3. Bleeding after douching

Symptoms in the advanced stages of the illness are:

1. Loss of weight
2. Back pain
3. Leg pain
4. Fatigue
5. Swelling of legs
6. Fractures
7. Pelvic pain
8. Leakage of urine/feces from vagina

Use ice to reduce swelling in the scrotum. Take warm baths. Support your testicles while lying down by placing a rolled towel under your scrotum. Use over-the-counter pain medications like acetaminophen or ibuprofen to reduce pain.

Dear Please get urine examination done to see if you are left with residual infection. Also see that you have usg done with postvoid residual urine, full bladder volume and wall thickness on full bladder with size of prostate. If you are constipated also solve that because passage of hard motions results in fissure giving you same complaints which will not respond to flow dart +. So let me see the reports and then only I can give you correct advice.
