I am 60 years having smoking habits since last 35 years. There is no problem right now. Getting checked every year tests are OK. Being smoker, possibility of development of cancer in any part of body. As precautionary measures tests to beconcducted to know any cancerous growth in body.

Dear smoking is a silent killer. It does not happen overnight but slowly it gets absorbed in lungs and blood and not only damages lung but also other parts leading to cancers of head and neck, lungs, gastrointestinal tract like intestinal, rectal, bladder and kidney and even leukaemia. Annual health screening will help you apart from if you have any specific problem then you can meet doctors earlier also.

Should I make any changes to my diet or lifestyle before starting cancer treatment?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Sir, one has to adapt to a simple and healthy lifestyle for prevention and treatment of cancer. Lifestyle should include healthy food, fruits vegetables obtained from organic sources, exercise, avoiding fatty and junk food, avoiding preservatives, fresh food, avoid tobacco alcohol pollution pesticides radiation exposure etc. During treatment care is even more stringent.

Hi sir/Mam Main 22 saal ki ladki hun, maine 2 din pehle breast Usg kiya kyunki meri breast pe pain or lump feel hota tha.

Main kya karu, Mere underarm ke andar kya huya? Mujhe bohat dar lagraha hai.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query If the diagnosis is fibroadenoma, then there is nothing to worry. Because - "A fibroadenoma is a non-cancerous tumor in the breast that is commonly found in women under the age of 30. According to Mammotome, fibroadenomas are diagnosed in approximately 10 percent of women in the United States (Mammotome). African-American women are more likely to develop these tumors" Certain investigations like Mammogram and if needed Fine needle aspiration may be done to rule out any other problem. Thanks.

My grandmother died of colon cancer. My question is whether it was familial? my mom was second child to her. First child was a boy.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, MRCS (Edinburgh), Fellowship In Breast Surgery, Fellowship In Onco-plastic Breast Surgery
Oncologist, Gurgaon
Annapurna, majority of the colo-rectal cancers are sporadic but there are certain criteria which should raise red flags regarding it being familial. 1. Age at which your grandmother was diagnosed? younger the age, more the chances of it being familial 2. Any other family member, who has suffered from cancer? multiple family members suffering from the same cancer, increases the risk. There are no screening guidelines in india but your mother should consult a doctor if she develops any symptoms. No harm in getting one check colonoscopy done.

If controlled with tablets can delay surgery or else have to do, before that do a PSA and a biopsy to rule out malignancy.

dear sir, all big hospitals and cancer centres have preventive oncology department which carry out basic investigations to screen basic cancers. otherwise you can meet a cancer specialist in your area ,they can do a detailed examination and advise investigations like PSA, CEA do chest xray ultrasound, do blood, urine and stool examination.

The drug you mentioned is still experimental. We can't advise this at this moment. Diarrhoea is a common side effect after radiation. Majority of my patients with Ca cervix after radiation, complain this. It may persist for long time. It's distressing but not worrisome. So, don't worry.

Doctor suggested weekly chemotherapy for my father. But he is looking very week. Can he take chemotherapy in this condition or we should wait but we have already wasted our lot of time. Now single moment is precious. Sir what we do. Can radiation specialist give chemotherapy. Currently doctor told stage 4 on the basis of MRI and FNAC reports.

Oncologist, Delhi
Stage 4 cancer can not be cured by chemotherapy. It is given only to prolong life, only if it is not harming the body in the form of side effects. Palliative care is best at this tie. Most important is pain relief if he has pain. Remember pain is curable at any or every stage of cancer. Rest you can discuss with me.

Breast Cancer - 4 Common Signs!

DNB, DGO, MBBS

Breast Cancer - 4 Common Signs!

Breast cancer is a type of a cancerous infection that develops in the skin cells of the breast. This condition is more commonly diagnosed after you have skin cancer and is more common in women than men. There are certain signs to identify this disease, which are as follows.

1. Breast lumps - Lumps are patches of skin that occur due to the thickening and swelling of the skin. Breast lumps is a very common phenomenon for women but that does not always lead to a breast cancer; however, frequent and reoccurring instances of the same increases the risk of breast cancer. A breast lump is easily identifiable through the naked eye as it looks different from the surrounding tissues.

2. Blood discharges - The nipple is one of the most sensitive areas in the human body. In case of women, it is meant to emit milk during pregnancy, in order to feed the infant externally. A probable symptom of breast cancer can also be a frequent discharge of blood from the nipple without any visible damage or injury.

3. Breast changes - If you are experiencing any visible changes in the size, appearance or shape of the breast, then it is an indicative sign that you may have breast cancer. Thus, it is of paramount importance that you observe, touch and physically examine your breast regularly for changes. If there is any major change detected then it is advisable to consult a doctor.

4. Inverted nipple - The tip of the nipple is generally bulging and pointing outwards both in cases of men and women. But sometimes the tip of the nipple is pushed inside due to excessive suction caused by the skin tissues present inside the breast around the nipple area. This suction forces the nipple to grow inwards which is abnormal and might harm the breast and skin in various ways.

However, apart from these main symptoms, some other signs are also there that increase your chances of being diagnosed with breast cancer. They are redness or pitting of the skin over your breast like an orange, peeling or scaling of the pigmented area around the nipple, dimpling of the skin on the breasts, and such others.

Not every smoker gets it but everyone has the potential to develop cancer if they smoke depending on many other health factors. The more you smoke the more the danger.
