My Dear lybrate-user ji. This is a common problem in the old age. Nothing to worry about much. Every man has to pass through this inevitably. So we have to adjust with this with out worrying much. Do meditation Pranayama regularly with little exercise and good diet. Spend good time with your family and good friends. Read good books and do some charity to the society. Take following Chandra prabha vati 2tabs morning and evening with milk. Shilajith caps 1 morning and evening.

In this cancer, the adrenal cortex is damaged and the adrenal glands do not produce enough of the steroid hormones cortisol and aldosterone. Cortisol regulates the body’s reaction to stressful situations. Aldosterone helps with sodium and potassium regulation. The adrenal cortex also produces sex hormones (androgens).-------Due to deficient Androgens, DHT (Di-Hydro-Testosterone) derived from Testosterone hormone in Male by action of 5 Alpha Reductase (5 AR) Enzyme is incapable to attach to Androgen receptors of the Hair Follicle due to damaged Adrenal cortex, thus leading to excessive hair growth esp. On head------------------

Throat pain after taking spicy things generally is not a symptom of cancer. Blood in throat after brushing more likely indicate a dental problem. Please consult a dentist and an ent surgeon to be sure.

My brother in law has been detected colon cancer which is male tide in nature he is undergoing chemotherapy we have come to know about sour sop fruit which is very helpful in killing the cancer cells. Please advise us whether we can give him or not.

There is no study as such which can help kill cancer cells by using fruits. It's better to go according to the proven line of management. Chemotherapy in colon cancer is usually very effective.

My grand mother was died of colon cancer recently. At the age of 60 cancer was diagnosed. My grandmother's mother hadn't suffered from cancer. And my grandmother was very active upto her 50's. Later she suffered from constipation for 1 month. And had a swelling near urinary tract. It was removed by doctors. After few month we again had a scanning to her. Later reports showed that she had colon cancer and it was in final stage. This makes me thinks that my grandmother cancer was not hereditary. My question was in such case is there chance of having cancer to my mother. She was a second child. First child was a boy. And tell me the symptoms of cancer in initial stage.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist, Hyderabad
Cancers can be called hereditary only if at least two first degree relatives are diagnosed with cancer, especially if they are diagnosed at a younger age. Regarding your grand mother she is the first person to have cancer in the family, that too at the age of 60yrs. It is very unlikely to be hereditary. However persons with a 1st degree relative with cancer have a slightly higher risk of cancer when compared to the general population.

Breast Lumps - How Can They Be Treated?

MBBS, MD
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Breast Lumps - How Can They Be Treated?

A breast lump is an enlargement, swell, protuberance or a bump that is different than the breast tissue surrounding it. Breast lumps can appear in men as well as women and they can be benign or malignant. Causes of benign breast lumps are as follows:

  1. Fibroadenosis: Also known as Fibro-cystic breast disease, it is a benign condition that affects the breast. It may affect either of the breasts or both. One of the major symptoms of Fibroadenosis is a breast lump. Usually, the lumpiness disappears after the menstrual cycle is over. Fibroadenosis occurs because the breast tissue doesn’t respond well to the hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle.
  2. Fibroadenomas: Fibroadenomas occur because of abnormal response to the hormone oestrogen. The lumps are usually well formed and round, around the milk ducts of the breast. Breast lumps due to Fibroadenomas are called breast mice, because they move around the breast. In some cases, they disappear and in some, they tend enlarge during pregnancy.

Other benign causes of breast lumps are breast abscesses, breast cysts, lipoma (lump of fat), mastitis (infection in the breast tissues), fat necrosis (another name for breast lumps) and intraductal papilloma (benign tumour of the milk ducts in the breast). A breast lump that is firm, well defined and doesn’t move around, i.e. it doesn’t disappear after your period or pregnancy, may be a result of breast cancer.

Treatment of breast lumps
The treatment of a breast lump depends on its cause. Benign breast lumps usually disappear over time. Otherwise following treatments can be considered as per the doctor’s discretion-

  1. Medication: If the breast lumps are painful or increase over time, it is advisable to take medication.
    • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and other painkillers like paracetamol
    • Danazol, Tamoxifen or Bromocriptine are administered to treat breast pain as well
    • Antibiotics which are administered to cure breast abscesses that are caused due bacterial infections
  2. Limiting the amount of fat in the diet or wearing well fitting bras also reduces the amount of pain due to breast lumps.
  3. Certain types of breast lumps are filled with fluid or pus. This fluid can be drained through a procedure called aspiration or drainage.
  4. A radical way to treat a breast lump is surgery. Many a times, these lumps get bigger and painful and the most effective way to deal with it is to remove it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Are there screening tests that can find lung cancer early? How many people get lung cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, early diagnosis of lung cancer can be made by screening chest xray, but it shouldn't be done very frequently as there is risk of radiation exposure so annually once is fine unless there is some problems like cough, blood in sputum, voice change, breathing difficulty etc. Lung cancer is the most common cancers relatrd deaths amongst males and the incidence is amongst males in nearly 7percent of all cancers.

He might be having ca rectum. If sphincter saving is possible after radiation, colostomy can be avoided. Sperms should be preserved in sperm bank. Please send ct scan / pet scan report and biopsy report.
