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

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist, Mandsaur
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.

Do chickens and cows get cancer? And if so, is it dangerous to eat cancerous meat?

MD Radiation Oncology, ESMO Certified Medical Oncologist, DM Medical Oncology (Pursuing)
Oncologist, Mumbai
Chickens and cows also are affected by cancer. It is important to know that cancer does not spread by eating or touch. It is not an infectious disease. But it is necessary to maintain hygiene and eat well cooked food so that other infections are avoided.

Let your CT imaging to assess by surgical oncologist to check resectability. if resectable surgery should be done earliest possible. there also risk of becoming inoperable with further chemotherapy if it is not responding to chemotherapy

I have a swollen lymph node on the right side of my neck from two months it comes with a very bad cold but till now its not gone and I am still having infection in my throat I also done a needle biopsy and everything came back normal but neither the infection nor the enlarged lymph node is gone. What should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
You must take a good course of antibiotics and anti allergic. You can check your sputum for sensitivity of antibiotics. Lymph node enlargement may be infection related though it is surprising why you have it for so long. Beyond this I need to examine and check your immune status to know the cause of infection.

To preserve beautiful life we have to live in an environment where there is no pollution, minimum use of pesticides organic farming, chemical free food and no adulteration. No tobacco or carcinogens. We have to rely on natural resources and lead a healthy life, regular exercises and yoga for physical fitness and mental relaxation. Regular self examination and periodical clinical evaluation may help in early diagnosis and treatment.

General Physician, Hyderabad
A lipoma is a slow-growing, fatty lump that's most often situated between your skin and the underlying muscle layer. A lipoma, which feels doughy and usually isn't tender, moves readily with slight finger pressure. Lipomas are usually detected in middle age. Some people have more than one lipoma. A lipoma isn't cancer and usually is harmless. Treatment generally isn't necessary, but if the lipoma bothers you, is painful or is growing, you may want to have it removed.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, having gone through the description of your issue, I do not think there is a reason to worry. Nevertheless, I would advise you still to get this clinically examined by a skin specialist, and proceed as he/ she recommends. Do take care, and all the very best.

I smoke about 4-5 cigarettes per day. How much probability of having lung cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
It's difficult to calculate the probability, there are some risk calculators available but it's actually difficult to exactly predict as there may be other confounding factors like pollution,environmental factors, occupational hazards, genetic factors. Smoking is not only related to lung cancer but it may lead to head and neck cancer, gastrointestinal, bladder etc.
