NCI website issues guide lines for cancer management both for public and physicians. Sometimes for general public it is difficult to comprehend and they may be simplified and rewritten for better understanding with ofcourse acknowledged fact of its origins. These guidelines are nothing different than what we practice or learn from our texts and experience So sometimes it feels copied though it may be original. The idea of writing blogs is not to gain publicity but to make general public more aware of this problem and prevention.

BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Good morning! If the patient is beyond treatment and the medical fraternity has given up, then the best treatment for him would be to remain as happy as he can and all you relatives can help him remain happy for the rest of his life. Just keep him happy. Emotionally, materially and physically. Don't put him on a diet or exercise regime at this stage. Let him do what he wants, keep him happy!

Hello mam my name is ruchi my age is 29 I having swelling in my breast and offcourse my breast size is heavy so tel me what I should do I even can not wear my fav dresses.

MBBS, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), (MRCOG)
Gynaecologist, Chennai
Hi lybrate-user Bigger sized breasts need not interfere with clothes. Make sure you get the right sized bra. There are minimizer bras if you feel conscious, to make the breasts look smaller. But my siggestion is to be happy with your body, and not feel conscious. Regarding the swelling, it needs to to assessed. Weather within the breast or over it? Breasts feel swollen and painful about 1-2 weeks before periods. Observe if that is the case. If so, it is normal and nothing to worry. Else you may need a checkup by doctor. Whatever the result, do get in touch with me before undergoing any treatment.

What's symptoms of cancer disease? What's medicine needed to dispense to a patient?

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
People who have blood cancer can have problems with bleeding and serious infections. Seek immediate for symptoms such as uncontrolled bleeding, severe sweating, difficulty breathing, pale or blue lips or fingernails, high fever (greater than 101 degrees Fahrenheit), fast heart rate, confusion, loss or change in level of consciousness, or anxiety. The most common symptoms of lung cancer are: A cough that does not go away or gets worse. Chest pain that is often worse with deep breathing, coughing, or laughing. Hoarseness. Weight loss and loss of appetite. Coughing up blood or rust-colored sputum (spit or phlegm) Shortness of breath. Feeling tired or weak. Any unexplained change in the size or shape of the breast Dimpling anywhere on the breast Unexplained swelling of the breast (especially if on one side only) Unexplained shrinkage of the breast (especially if on one side only) Recent asymmetry of the breasts (Although it is common for women to have one breast that is slightly larger than the other, if the onset of asymmetry is recent, it should be checked.) Nipple that is turned slightly inward or inverted Skin of the breast, areola, or nipple that becomes scaly, red, or swollen or may have ridges or pitting resembling the skin of an orange symptoms of brain cancer Poor coordination Drooping eyelid or mouth on one side Difficulty swallowing Difficulty speaking Seeing doubt Poor coordination Drooping eyelid or mouth on one side Difficulty swallowing Difficulty speaking Seeing doubleSpinal cordPain Numbness in part of the body Weakness in the legs or arms Loss of control of the bladder or bowel 9 more rows Myeloma is a cancer that affects cells in the bone marrow, called plasma cells. As the cancerous plasma cells fill the bone marrow, you are not able to make enough normal blood cells. This can lead to anaemia, bleeding problems and infections. treatment depends on so many factors and there are so many medicines

Breast pain could be due to mastitis or during premenstrual and menstrual period now as there is no periods for close to 3 months, there might be some hormonal problem. You need to visit doctor and get her checked.

All About Mastectomies

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS, DGO

All About Mastectomies

A mastectomy is surgical removal of a breast. The surgery depends on various factors and choosing a type of mastectomy best suited for an individual suffering from breast cancer requires experience and expertise. With advancing technology, there are more options available for women to opt for surgeries, which are minimally invasive and conserving in nature. Following are the various types of mastectomies and the factors, which influence them:

Types of Mastectomy

1. Total or simple mastectomy

This is a surgical procedure which involves complete removal of the breast including the nipple. The lymph nodes, which are small glands, are an important part of your immune system and are kept intact during the surgery. This form of surgery is most suitable if the cancer has not spread to the lymph nodes.

2. Preventive mastectomy

Preventive mastectomy, also known as prophylactic mastectomy, is an option for women who have a high risk of developing breast cancer. Preventive mastectomy reduces the risk of breast cancer by a huge margin. In certain cases, removal of the entire breast along with the nipple is advisable. Women who develop cancer on one breast often opt for preventive mastectomy and remove the other unaffected breast as well.

3. Partial mastectomy

Women who are in stage I or stage ii of breast cancer can choose this procedure. It is a breast conserving technique where the tumor is removed along with the tissue that surrounds it. It is followed up by radiation therapy on the remaining breast tissue, which terminates the cancer cells and stops them from spreading. There are two types of partial mastectomy, namely, lumpectomy and quadrantectomy.

4. Radical mastectomy

Although this procedure is almost out of use, it is still considered in case the cancer has spread to certain areas like the chest muscle. In this form of surgery, the breast is removed entirety along with muscles beneath it and the lymph nodes.

5. Modified mastectomy

It is a more commonly used procedure characterized by complete removal of the breast including underarm lymph nodes. The chest muscles are untouched in the procedure, therefore allowing a breast reconstruction to follow.

Factors influencing the type of mastectomy:

• Age of the individual

• Health in general

• Size of the tumor

• The spread of the tumor

• The rate of progression of the tumor

• Whether lymph nodes are affected or not

I have chest tumor in nipple very hard. This is not pain but I have in very depression this about. What is treatment.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Kanpur
If you r of 19 years age then a nodule in breast most probably is gynecomastia. You may get a fnac done of that nodule to confirm the diagnosis. If it is indeed gynecomastia then no need to worry about although for cosmetic reasons it may be removed surgically.

Lump in axilla (armpit) is most probably a lymph node. It may be of infective origin. U must consult a surgeon. And he will guide you better. When in doubt it is better to get it excised.

Enlargement of prostrate gland require surgery. Masterbation is not having any effect on it. You should get your usg done and see the weight of prostrate. If it is giving you much of trouble then surgery is advisable before it gives any complication.

I had total thyroidectomy due to Thyroid cancer Parathyroids were preserved, before RAI Calcium was 10.2. At the time of discharge from hospital calcium was 8.3. But now my Calcium level dropped to 7.2 post RAI. My recent Albumin level is normal. But I am Asymptomatic. What's causing my Calcium level to drop now? Using calcium supplement for longer periods is not safe is it true? What blood test should I appear for to confirm the cause of low calcium? Please suggest blood test.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Post thyroidectomy and preserving of parathyroid glands, there is a possibility of transient hypocalcimia for about 4 to 6 weeks or a bit longer. Usually by 3 to 4 months the parathyroid gland starts functioning fully. So now you will have to take additional supplement of calcium to reduce or overcome the deficiency. Thanks.

HPV Vaccine update

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Cardiologist, Delhi

Hpv vaccine update

Three different vaccines, which vary in the number of HPV types they contain, are available

  1.     A bivalent vaccine, targets hpv types 16 and 18
  2.     A quadrivalent hpv vaccine, targets hpv types 6, 11, 16, and 18
  3.     A 9-valent vaccine, targets the same hpv types as the quadrivalent vaccine (6, 11, 16, and 18) as well as types 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58
  4.     If cost and availability are not issues, use 9-valent vaccine for individuals for whom hpv vaccination is indicated
  5.     Infection with human papillomavirus (hpv) types 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58 is implicated in approximately 90 percent of invasive cervical cancers.
  6.     Two types associated with genital warts are (6 and 11)
  7.     Routine immunization should be offered to boys and girls aged 11 to 12, but can be administered as early as nine years of age. Catch-up vaccination should be offered to males between the ages of 13 to 21 and females between 13 to 26 years who have not been previously vaccinated. Repeat vaccination with the 9-valent vaccine is likely not warranted for individuals who have completed a series with a different HPV vaccine.
  8.     Persistent viral infection with carcinogenic HPV types causes virtually all cancer of the cervix and most cases of anal cancer. The carcinogenic types, HPV 16 and HPV 18, which are targeted by the current HPV vaccines, cause approximately 70 percent of all cervical cancers worldwide and 72 percent of anal cancers. Hpv types 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58 are estimated to cause an additional 19 percent of invasive cervical cancers. Hpv 6 and HPV 11 cause approximately 90 percent of genital warts.
  9.     Hpv immunization is most effective among individuals who have not yet been infected with HPV (eg, before sexual debut).
  10.     The quadrivalent vaccine and 9-valent are administered in three doses at time zero and at two and six months of follow-up. The bivalent vaccine is administered in three doses at time zero, and at one and six months of follow-up.
  11.     Cervical cancer screening is recommended for any woman 21 years of age or older.
  12.     Clinicians should be aware that HPV immunization is not effective in clearing cytologically evident disease or HPV infection that is already present.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Kanpur
Most probably its a benign lump if her age is less than 30 years. But she should get examined by a surgeon to confirm it. Also the only cure for lump is surgery. But indication for surgery depends upon its size and symptoms caused by it.
