What are the causes of skin cancer and what are the syndrome of it also tell me it's preventive measures.
If there is irritation over the skin for more than ten years than it can lead to cancer and for preventing it few diet tips - not to eat fried food items and can eat all green vegetables, moong, chana, dal, rice etc and to apply ghee over chappati and don't apply oil over chappati and to drink milk mixed with turmeric powder twice a day and if possible eat eggs on alternate days and if possible in breakfast eat atleast one bajra ka rotla and eat seasonal fruit.

My mum has suddenly developed a gland in her left breast.

Dear, If it is painful it is unlikely cancer and may be infection. If after a course of antibiotics it foes not suppress you should definitely go for Timor analysis. A fine needle aspiration testis advised in that case. If there is any positivity on FNAC then we can go for further management.

Please see a surgeon. You need an Ultrasound of the breasts. You probably have Fibroadenosis only-your history is typlical. Please apply Xylocaine Jelly 2 percent on the breast when you have pain. Nothing else to be done.

What are the symptoms of cancer and causes of cancer then what are the symptoms of flu? Then causes of flu.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

What are the symptoms of cancer and causes of cancer then what are the symptoms of flu? Then causes of flu.
Some general signs and symptoms associated with, but not specific to, cancer, include: fatigue lump or area of thickening that can be felt under the skin weight changes, including unintended loss or gain skin changes, such as yellowing, darkening or redness of the skin, sores that won't heal, or changes to existing moles changes in bowel or bladder habits persistent cough or trouble breathing difficulty swallowing hoarseness persistent indigestion or discomfort after eating persistent, unexplained muscle or joint pain persistent, unexplained fevers or night sweats unexplained bleeding or bruising cancer is caused by changes (mutations) to the dna within cells. The dna inside a cell is packaged into a large number of individual genes, each of which contains a set of instructions telling the cell what functions to perform, as well as how to grow and divide. Errors in the instructions can cause the cell to stop its normal function and may allow a cell to become cancerous. People who have the flu often feel some or all of these symptoms: fever* or feeling feverish/chills. Cough. Sore throat. Runny or stuffy nose. Muscle or body aches. Headaches. Fatigue (tiredness) some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults. Three main types of influenza viruses cause the flu: type a, type b, and type c. All three virus types are spread in the same way: they leave an infected person's body in droplets whenever that person coughs, sneezes, or puts their mouth on another object.

Things You Can Do for a Healthy Prostate

Things You Can Do for a Healthy Prostate

The prostate gland is a male reproductive organ at the base of the urinary bladder and urethra is a thin tube that carries urine out of the penis. It runs through the prostate gland. A fluid produced by this gland helps to carry sperms produced by the testes outside during intercourse.

Following things can be done for maintaining a healthy prostate:

  1. Eat fruits and vegetables: Including fruits and vegetables in your diet can help to maintain a healthy prostate. Guava, papaya, tomato and watermelon are some of the options that spell good for your prostate. Vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels sprouts should also be included to boost the health of the gland. Ideally, you should have about 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily.
  2. Have selenium-rich foods: Having foods rich in selenium (a powerful trace mineral) like tuna, eggs, cashews, onions, garlic, etc can reduce your risk of developing prostate cancer.
  3. Workout to stay fit: Exercising regularly and maintaining an optimum weight can help to keep your prostate gland at an optimal health. Several types of research have revealed the beneficial aspects of exercising. It's said that physically active men are less likely to suffer from enlarged prostate if they performed a physical activity of low to moderate intensity. Likewise, physically active men who ran for 90 to 108 minutes are 20% less likely to develop erectile dysfunction.
  4. Have more soy products: Eating more soy products like tofu, soy flour, soy nuts can help to keep cancer of the prostate at bay. A study published in the British Journal of Urology International revealed that men who had soy products saw a 40% decrease in their risk of developing an enlarged prostate.

Sir, I am rahul Raj. I am 20 Yr old. Nd my mausi has blood cancer. What is the process of cure of these diseases.

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist, Mandsaur
Blood cancer treatment & therapy options Treatment for blood cancer depends on the type of cancer, your age, how fast the cancer is progressing, where the cancer has spread and other factors. Some common blood cancer treatments include: • Stem cell transplantation: A stem cell transplant infuses healthy blood-forming stem cells into the body. Stem cells can be collected from the bone marrow, circulating (peripheral) blood and umbilical cord blood. • Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is the use of anticancer drugs designed to interfere with and halt the growth of cancer cells in the body. Chemotherapy for blood cancer sometimes consists of giving several drugs together in a set regimen. It may also be given before a stem cell transplant. • Radiation therapy: Radiation therapy may be used to destroy cancer cells or to relieve pain or discomfort. It may also be given before a stem cell transplant.

Yes she can take. Other than that, reassure her and encourage her to keep breastfeeding. The emotional bond between mother and child will help in milk generation also.

See there are many antibiotics to control this kind of infection. But their effect depend upon type of bacteria which caused infection there. You should have to do urine culture and sensitivity testing. After that we can decide which antibiotic has to administer.

Lung Cancer

Lung Cancer

The lungs are amongst the hardest working organs in the body. They expand and contract upto 20 times a minute to supply oxygen which is distributed to tissues all across the body and expel carbon di oxide which is created through out the body. Cancer in the lungs is common and people who smoke are at the highest risk of contracting lung cancer. The risk of lung cancer increases with the duration of smoking period and the number of cigarettes smoked. The silver lining through is that if one quits this habit even after several years, one can significantly reduce the chances of developing lung cancer. A new cough persisting for many weeks, coughing blood even small amounts, shortness of breath, chest pain, wheezing, hoarseness, unexpected weight loss, bone pain and headache were some of the symptoms in advanced stage of the disease.

What are the symptoms of cancer and what to troubleshoot measures can be adopted?

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Hello lybrate-user. Your question is important but a lil vague. I would see to it tht I help you as much as possible through my answer. Cancer can cause symptoms because of two things. Either due the under functioning of an organ where the cancer has started (local) or due to under functioning of an organ where the cancer has spread (distant) or some generalized complaints. Local complaints depend on organ involved. For the organs which are beneath skin it usually presents as lump. Like breast cancer, thyroid cancer, cancers of soft tissue, etc. When the organ is deep seated it mainly interferes with its primary functions and hence the symptoms. For example, stomach cancer will cause indigestion, heaviness in upper abdomen, bloody vomitus or black stools. Cancer of intestine will cause change in bowel habits or bleeding in stools. Liver cancer may cause jaundice. Brain tumor can cause vomiting, fits. Headaches, etc. A complete picture is quite big and out of scope for this communication. Distant spread usually causes problems based on organ involved, similar to local. But possibility of multiple sites involved at the same time remains high. Bone spread causes excess unressolving pains or fractures. Spread to lung can cause cough and blood in sputum. And so on. Some general complaints are, weight loss, loss of appetite, fatigue and looking pale. Most, if not all, oral cancers are caused by tobacco chewing. Cancer of cervix, a part of uterus is caused by infection with human papilloma virus, which spreads with unprotected sexual contact. These two are preventable cancers. Rest of the cancers are not preventable per se. But if detected early can be taught well. Early detection solely depends on being aware of cancers common to one's age group and respect any unusual change in body habit which persists for long. So. Eat healthy, drink loads of healthy liquids, breathe loads of fresh air with the help of pranayam, exercise well and regular. Which will help keeping cancer a little away and at the same time, if unfortunately this unpredictable guest makes an appearance, a good health is important to sustain the treatments, helping one to get disease free as fast and as long as possible. Thanks.
