How to I identity the skin cancer before it come. And is that a spreadable disease.

General Physician, Faridabad
growth of the skin. It starts from cells that begin as normal skin cells and transform into those with the potential to reproduce in an out-of-control manner. Unlike other cancers, the vast majority of skin cancers have no potential to spread to other parts of the body (metastasize) and threaten your life. it does not spread to other parts of the body. no danger to lifee. thanks

9 Symptoms Of Colon Cancer!

9 Symptoms Of Colon Cancer!

Colon cancer is cancer that starts in the large intestine (colon). In most cases it begins as a non-malignant group of cells called polyps, which may turn cancerous over time. After the formation of the malignant tumors, the cancerous cells may spread to other parts of your body through lymph and blood channels. It can occur together with rectal cancer and is known as colorectal cancer.

Causes of Colon Cancer

The occurrence of colon cancer may depend on the presence of precancerous polyps in the colon. Adenomas polyps may turn cancerous, but are removable through colonoscopy. Hyperplastic polyps rarely become cancerous, whereas inflammatory polyps may become cancerous after the inflammation of the colon.

Other risk factors that may influence the occurrence of colon cancer are,

  • Genetics: about 20% colon cancers are thought to be caused by mutation of the genes.
  • Age: those over the age of 50 are more likely to develop colon cancer, though now it is also increasingly affecting younger people.
  • Lifestyle: it is more likely to affect people who lead a sedentary lifestyle, smoke tobacco or are obese.
  • Diet: it is more likely to affect those whose diets are high in red meats, calories, and fat while being low in fiber. Alcohol consumption may also affect its occurrence.
  • Medical conditions: people who suffer from diabetes, acromegaly (growth hormone disorder) and colitis etc, may also be prone to develop colon cancer.

Warning Signs of Colon Cancer

Colon cancer generally goes undetected in the early stages. The symptoms vary with the location, spread and size of the tumor. In the earlier stages of cancer, most people experience no symptoms, but in the later stages they may experience one or more of these symptoms:

- Change in bowel habits such as diarrhea, constipation or change in consistency of stools; lasting more than a month
- Blood in stool or bleeding from the rectum
- Pain during passage of stool
- Pain, cramps or gas in the abdominal region
- Frequent urges to pass stool
- Weakness
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Anemia
- Unexpected weight loss

However, these symptoms may not necessarily indicate colon cancer. They can occur in the absence of colon cancer too.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Symptoms of Lung Cancer In Hindi - फेफड़ों के कैंसर के लक्षण

Symptoms of Lung Cancer In Hindi - फेफड़ों के कैंसर के लक्षण

फेफड़ों का कैंसर का कारण फेफड़ों की कोशिकाओं का अनियंत्रित रूप से बढ़ना है. इन कोशिकाओं की संख्या धीरे-धीरे बढ़कर एक ट्यूमर का रूप ले लेती है. कैंसर के ज्यदातर खतरनाक मामले जिनमें मौत होने की संभावना होती है उन सभी में मृत्यु के लिए मृत्यु के लिए फेफड़े का कैंसर ज़िम्मेदार है. फेफड़ों के कैंसर को मुख्य रूप से दो भागो में बाँटा गया है – स्मॉल सेल लंग कैंसर (एससीएलसी) और नॉन-स्माल सेल लंग कैंसर (एनएससीएलसी). एससीएलसी, नॉन-स्माल सेल लंग कैंसर की तुलना में ज़्यादा आक्रामक होता है. एनएससीएलसी फेफड़ों के कैंसर का अधिक सामान्य रूप है - 80-85% लंग कैंसर के मामलों एनएससीएलसी के होते हैं. फेफड़ों में होने वाले कैंसर का सबसे सामान्य लक्षण खाँसी है, जो धीरे धीरे गंभीर रूप ले तेती है. इसके ठीक होने में लम्बा समय भी लग सकता है. इसके अन्य लक्षणों में निमोनिया या ब्रांगकाइटिस है जो बार-बार होता रहता है, वज़न कम होना, भूख में कमी होना, थकान, सांस लेने में तकलीफ, आवाज़ का बदलना भी इसके अन्य लक्षणों में शामिल हैं. आइए फेफड़ों के कैंसर की गंभीरता को देखते हुए इसके लक्षणों को एक-एक करके समझने की कोशिश करें.

1. पेरानियोप्लास्टिक लक्षण
जाहिर है प्रत्येक बीमारी अपने साथ कुछ लक्षणों को भी लाती है जिसके आधार पर हम उसकी पहचान करते हैं. फेफड़े के कैंसर अक्सर लक्षणों के साथ होते हैं, जो ट्यूमर कोशिकाओं द्वारा हार्मोन जैसे पदार्थों के उत्पन्न होने से विकसित होते हैं. ये पेरानियोप्लास्टिक लक्षण सबसे ज़्यादा एससीएलसी में पाए जाते हैं, लेकिन किसी ट्यूमर के प्रकार के साथ भी देखे जा सकते हैं.
2. कैंसर से संबंधित लक्षण
फेफड़े और उसके आसपास के ऊतकों पर होने वाले कैंसर के आक्रमण से श्वसन प्रक्रिया में समस्या उत्पन्न हो सकती है. इसमें खाँसी, सांस की तकलीफ, ज़ोर ज़ोर से सांस लेना, सीने में दर्द और खाँसी के साथ रक्त निकलना (हेमोप्टेसिस) जैसे लक्षण हो सकते हैं. यदि कैंसर तंत्रिकाओं पर हमला करता है, तो कंधे में भयंकर दर्द होता है. यह दर्द कंधे से लेकर बांह को प्रभावित करता है या इसके कारण स्वरतंत्री भी पैरालाइज हो सकती हैं. कैंसर से प्रभावित भोजन नली द्वारा निगलने में कठिनाई हो सकती है.
3. गैरविशिष्ट लक्षण
फेफड़ों के कैंसर के कुछ लक्षण ऐसे भी होते हैं जो गैरविशिष्ट लक्षणों के अन्तर्गत आते हैं. इन्हें कई प्रकार के कैंसरों के रूप में देखा जाता है, जिनमें लंग कैंसर भी शामिल है. इन लक्षणों में हमें वजन घटना, कमजोरी और थकान आदि दिखाई पड़ सकते हैं. इसके अलावा कुछ मनोवैज्ञानिक लक्षण, जैसे – अवसाद और मनोदशा में होने वाले परिवर्तन भी आम हैं.
4. मेटास्टेसिस से सम्बन्धित लक्षण
मेटास्टेसिस का मतलब है कि कैंसर जिस अंग से शुरू हुआ था, उससे बढ़कर अन्य अंगों तक पहुँच चुका है. फेफड़ों का कैंसर हड्डियों में फैलकर उनके जोड़ों में असहनीय दर्द पैदा कर सकता है. मस्तिष्क में कैंसर के फैलने पर कई न्यूरोलॉजिक लक्षण भी उत्पन्न हो सकते हैं. इनमें धुंधली दृष्टि, सिर दर्द, दौरे या स्ट्रोक के लक्षण जैसे कि शरीर के कुछ हिस्सों में होने वाली सनसनी का कम या खत्म हो जाना शामिल हैं.
5. कोई लक्षण न होना
कई बार ऐसा भी हो सकता है कि इसके लक्षण हमें प्रत्यक्ष रूप से नजर न आएं. या बेहद कमजोर नजर आएं. ऐसे में लक्षणों का सामने न आना खतरनाक हो सकता है. इसलिए आपको समय-समय पर जांच कराते रहना होगा. फेफड़ों के कैंसर से पीड़ित को नियमित रूप से छाती के एक्स-रे या सीटी स्कैन द्वारा एक छोटे घाव से कराते रहना चाहिए. द्विआयामी एक्स- रे या सीटी स्कैन द्वारा परीक्षण करने पर ये गोल ट्यूमर एक सिक्के की तरह लगता है. जिन रोगियों में पहली बार लंग काकनेर का निदान कॉइन लेशन से किया जाता है, उनमें लंग कैंसर पाए जाने के समय अक्सर कोई लक्षण दिखाई नहीं देते.

All About Prostate Cancer

All About Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is a cancerous tumor in a man’s prostate gland, a small gland that is responsible for producing the seminal fluid which transports and nourishes the sperm. It is a very common type of cancer among men. A few cases of prostate cancer tend to develop slowly while others may progress very fast.


In the initial stages, prostate cancer may not show any symptom. However, in the latter stages, there may be symptoms such as:

  1. Pain in the bones.

  2. Erectile dysfunction.

  3. Urination can get troublesome.

  4. Presence of blood in the semen.

  5. Pain and discomfort in the pelvic region.


The exact causes of prostate cancer are not known. It starts to develop when certain cells in the prostate gland start to mutate. These mutations cause these cells to multiply at a very fast rate and thus, soon form tumors. Although the causes are not known, certain factors tend to aggravate this condition; them being:

  1. Color: According to certain medical reports, a darker skin may mean increased chances of suffering from prostate cancer.

  2. Age: The risk of developing prostate cancer tends to increase with age.

  3. Genetics and Family History: Faulty genes could be another cause of this condition. Also, having some member in the family who is diagnosed with this type of cancer only increases the risks of you suffering from them.

  4. Obesity: If you are obese, then you are more likely to develop prostate cancer.


The treatments for prostate cancer include:

  1. Radiation Therapy: In this procedure, high energy rays are used to target and destroy cancer cells. Usually X-rays or protons are used to treat the cancer cells.

  2. Hormone Therapy: Hormone therapy is a type of treatment wherein certain medications are administered to prevent your body from producing testosterone.

  3. Surgery: If the other treatment methods do not produce desired results, then a surgery is carried out for the removal of the prostate gland. In addition to the prostate gland, some adjoining lymph nodes and tissues are also removed.

  4. Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is method of destroying cancer cells by injecting chemicals into the body. The medicines are injected into the veins in the arms.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized oncologist and ask a free question.

" well differentiated oral squamous Cell Carcinoma" as stated it is an early staged cancer that needs attention. I would like to ask a few Qs which go unanswered by the docs in hospitals. Is it a mandate to go for the surgery or it is subject to the CT scan reports and blood reports. Second- I need a second opinion and detailed discussion to understand the procedures. Who can help. Would like to consult a surgical oncologist.

DNB (Surgical Oncology)
Oncologist, Kolkata
The ideal treatment for early oral cancer is surgery. The cure rates are exceedingly high with surgery. Post surgery radiotherapy can be given depending upon the final pathological staging. Ct scan is a useful guide before surgery.

Am I more at risk if my relatives have cancer and what do cancer stages and grades mean?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
Having more first degree and second degree relatives affected with cancer does put you in a higher than average risk bracket, but it does not stand true for all variety of cancers. We need to work on you family tree and details of your relatives illnesses to be more appropriately caution and not unnecessarily worry you. Cancer grade implies the aggressiveness in the behaviour of the cancer and stage implies the risk of the disease spreading and chances of cure of the disease. The higher the stage and grade, the more bad it is.

Hi, my wife is 38 years old and have two daughters (11 4 old F/M child). She is having pain in breast nipple point. After consulting the doctor she is taking B-LONG Tab 1 per day. She is thinking that have breast cancer. Can you please advice?

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Pune
Most common symptom of breat cancer is lump in the breast or the abnormal nipple discharge. The suspicion is high if the discharge is reddish. In those cases sometimes even mass is not felt but still the possibility of the breast cancer is very high. Breast cancer pain appears generally at late stages. The usual cause of nipple pain is small crack in the region which can be treated quite easily. Please consult a surgeon nearby who after examination will answer your questions and take out your fear.
