Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal.

Lung cancer is often diagnosed in advance stages where surgery is not possible. But there are other treatment options like Chemotherapy or targeted therapy. Your oncologist will decide between them depending upon the histopathology report and patients general condition. Don't worry trust your oncologist.

How can we identify skin cancer in the primary stage and what are the treatments for skin cancer?

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
Performed regularly, self examination can alert you to changes in your skin and aid in the early detection of skin cancer. It should be done often enough to become a habit, but not so often as to feel like a bother. For most people, once a month is ideal, but ask your doctor if you should do more frequent checks. The prognosis (chance of recovery) depends mostly on the stage of the cancer and the type of treatment used to remove the cancer. Treatment options depend on the following: The stage of the cancer (whether it has spread deeper into the skin or to other places in the body). The type of cancer. The size of the tumor and what part of the body it affects. The patient’s general health

Can I get my 11 year old doctor vaccinated for Cervical Cancer? What is the cost of the vaccination?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, you can ofcourse get your 11 years old daughter vaccinated for cervical cancer vaccine. Cervical cancer vaccines prevent individuals from cervical cancers caused by hpv viruses and have to be administered to adolescent girls prior to exposure. Usually three shots are given 1, 2 6 months. Two main brands are available and the cost varies from 6 to 8 thousand approx. For three injections it may vary from company to company. One must remember that cervical cancers may be caused by multiple factors and hpv is one of them. Others may be hormonal factors like early menarchy, too many children, poor hygiene of local area, late menopause, early marriages, immuno- compromised conditions, smoking etc, so one has to still go for routine screening by pap smear despite vaccination.

Benign Prostrate Hyperplasia And Its Symptoms!

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, MCh - Urology
Urologist, Agra
Benign Prostrate Hyperplasia And Its Symptoms!

Benign Prostrate Hyperplasia (BPH) is a condition which results in the enlargement of the prostate gland. The prostrate grand is situated near the Urethra (a tube which helps flush out the urine from the bladder). Generally, the chance of developing BPH increases after one crosses the age of 50. But it is yet unknown as to why some men experience more severe symptoms than others.

Causes of BPH
This condition generally occurs because of old age and affects almost all men above the age of 75. It occurs because of the various hormonal changes and changes in cell growth that the body goes through, as one becomes old. Sometimes BPH can set in due to genetics. If BPH sets in due to genetically reasons, it usually is quite severe and affects men before they reach 60.

Symptoms of BPH
Quite a few men who develop BPH, experience no symptoms at all. But when symptoms of BPH, known as lower urinary tract symptoms (LUT) start, they can be either mild or very severe. The severity of the symptoms is not related to the extent of the enlargement. Many a times men with only a mild enlargement complain about severe symptoms, while men with a highly enlarged prostate gland have not complained about any discomfort faced. 

Symptoms of BPH tend to worsen due to cold weather and also because of physical and emotional overexertion. There are certain medicines, which should be avoided if you suffer from BPH, as they have a tendency to worsen your symptoms, for example diphenhydramine, pseudoephedrine, oxymetazoline spray and other antidepressants.

The symptoms of BPH are related to bladder emptying and issues with bladder storage.

Symptoms related to the urine drainage from the bladder are:

  1. Strain while urinating
  2. Weak urine flow
  3. Some dribbling after urination
  4. Sudden urge to urinate
  5. Pain while urinating

Symptoms related to storage of urine in the bladder are:

  1. Waking during the night to urinate
  2. Urinating frequently during the day and at night
  3. Sudden urge to urinate, which may be hard to control

It however, has to be kept in mind that these symptoms may not primarily occur due to prostate enlargement, but are the result of other conditions like urinary tract infections, prostatitis, prostate cancer, neurological disorders and even diabetes. Thus, it is essential that you visit a doctor and get the cause for these symptoms diagnosed properly.

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

Histopathologically it depends on cell of origin And it could be of more than 200 types. Many cancers are very aggressive by behaviour like glioblastoma multiforme, a kind of brain tumour.
