Mr. lybrate-user. Your report is suggestive of BPH I.e. Is enlarged prostate. Residual urine amount is more which suggest immediate release of obstruction. But consult your urologist other options. Otherwise operation is only solution.

Swelling can be detected in an ultrasound but to confirm whether it is a cancerous type we have to do a biopsy.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciagte you seeking help. First and foremost, I would advise that you stay cool and not be overly anxious. Gynecomastia does not mean breast cancer. It is a benign enlargement of the breast tissue triggered mostly by hormonal imbalance, the exact underlying cause of which needs to be ascertained. You should visit an endocrinologist and get this clinically examined in person. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely.

Sir, what are the main causes of cancer. How can we defence it. What are the remedies. Can you help me.

Cancer Causes Certain genes control the life cycle – the growth, function, division, and death -- of a cell. When these genes are damaged, the balance between normal cell growth and death is lost. Cancer occurs due to DNA damage and out-of-control cell growth. The following is a partial list of factors known to damage DNA and increase the risk of cancer: Genetic mutations (for example, BRCA1 and BRCA2) Environmental exposure to UV radiation, air pollution Bacterial (H. Pylori) and viral infections (Epstein-Barr, HPV, hepatitis B and C) Lifestyle choices (poor diet, inactivity, obesity, heavy alcohol use, smoking cigarettes and tobacco use, exposure to chemicals and toxins) Treatment with chemotherapy, radiation, or immunosuppressive drugs Cancer Treatment Cancer treatment is highly variable depending on the type and stage of a cancer as well as the overall health of the patient. The most common treatments for cancer are surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Other treatments include targeted/biological therapies, hematopoietic stem cell transplants, angiogenesis inhibitors, cryosurgery, and photodynamic therapy. Every cancer treatment has potential risks, benefits, and side effects. The patient and his or her care team, which may include an internist or other specialist, surgeon, oncologist, radiation oncologist, and others, will help determine the best and most appropriate course of treatment.

My daughter, age 65 was under treatment for cancer and after six months has been discharged and at home. She is awfully weak and weighs around 32 kg.

I have a question. Self sex can developed ovarian cancer and abnormal menstruation.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
I have a question. Self sex can developed ovarian cancer and abnormal menstruation.
Self sex or masturbation cannot cause any ovarian cancer or abnormal menses sexual urge is a natural instinct. In such a scenario when one gets aroused its natural to go for masturbation. During masturbation one just releases the sexual urge in harmless manner. Menstrual cycle is not related to sexual urge so masturbation doesnot cause any change in the body and hence canot cause cancer or affect menses.

What are the symptoms of cancer and how to identify whether cancer is there are not?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer presents as uncontrolled proliferation of cells leading to symptoms like palpable lump, ulceration, abnormal bleeding from anywhere, weight loss, difficulty in swallowing, change in voice, change in bowelor bladder habits, throat pain etc. One has to go for complete examination of body for any obvious lesion, some radiological investigations like chest xray, ultrasound abdomen etc, blood investigation for cancer markers and routine urine and stool examination. If any specific symptoms are there then specific tests may be done, otherwise routine screening should be done atleast annually.
