Cancer is a genetic disease. Gene sequence gets disturbed by some injury by chemicals, tobacco, radiation exposure, adulterated food, viruses, pollution, pesticides or even spontaneously. Due to altered genetic make up, cells grow uncontrolled and exhaust body resources. Any age any gender can present with cancer, so be cautious about environment u live in, food you eat and any potential carcinogens

The first thing needed is to stage the patient. This needs a CT scan of Chest and abdomen. If it is a localised disease the standard treatment will be Pre-operative Radiation therapy followed by surgery or Radical Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy depending on the fitness of the patient and the type of cancer. If it is metastatic, spread to other organs, the treatment would be palliative chemotherapy. Consult an oncologist (surgical/radiation) to decide the best course for the patient

Palliative Care for Cancer Patients

MD - Ayurveda

With terminal illnesses like cancer, the disease is not the only thing that requires treatment. In addition to controlling the severity and spread of the main disease, the effect it has on the other body systems including emotional, social, psychological problems and also physical issues like pain and inflammation. Though the disease has reached an advanced stage and cannot be cured, the patient can be made to be pain-free and at peace to the extent possible.

The goal of palliative care is not to cure - in fact, palliative care is in place for diseases like cancer from the time it is diagnosed and treatment is begun but becomes the major component of treatment once the cancer is identified to be in terminal stages. Therapeutic care aimed at curing the cancer is gradually reduced and palliative care assumes a bigger role. This is also called as symptomatic care, supportive care, or comfort care.

Aspects of palliative care: once the disease is identified to be in terminal stages, then the following become considerations-
1. Stay at home or hospital
2. Withdraw chemotherapy and radiation?
3. Withdraw feeding tube
4. Spiritual discussions
5. Reduce anxiety
6. Good quality time with the family
7. Reduce pain and suffering
As is evident, there is a huge component of social/emotional/spiritual management in addition to reducing pain and suffering.

Physical: pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, sleeplessness, loss of appetite are some symptoms that need to be managed. In addition to pain killers, small exercises can be included to make them feel better, even if it is just getting a breath of fresh air.

Social: depression, anxiety, uncertainty, fear are all looming large and they are not sure how to manage these feelings. Talking to a counselor or some close family member or friend can be a big relief - the burden is off their chest.

Legal: there could be issues related to property, insurance, property that also need to be discussed. External help can be sought if required to provide financial counselling and legal advice.

Spiritual: looking into the spiritual needs and understanding the deeper meaning of life, restoring faith are some things that also can help them feel better" why did this happen to me" is a question most people keep asking and while there is no answer, some solace can be provided through talks.

It is to be noted that palliative care is not just for the patient. The caretakers (family and close friends) are equally in need of some support. So, once the patient is identified to be in terminal stages, all effort is made so the final leg of the journey is peaceful and as painless as possible.

breast cancer if diagnosed early is generally given radio/ chemotherapy to shrink the tumour followed by surgery to remove the breast and axillary lymph nodes. It has good survival chances if treated early. Regular self breast examination to look for a lump, pain, nipple discharge/ abnormality, skin puckering helps in quick diagnosis which should be followed by timely sonography or mammogram to detect the cancer in time.

What are the basic symptoms of blood cancer. In the condition of cancer positive patients what are the foods are suitable for them?

Blood cancer are usually due to uncontrolled proliferation of one of the components of blood causing suppression of others.hence leading to symptoms like prolonged fever, frequent infection bleeding and easy bruising,anemia, lump or lymphadenopathy, organ enlargement etc. Food must be taken which enhance immunity like fruits, vegetables, whole grains etc bur during treatment due to immunocompromised state adequately cooked hygienic food must be consumed. Individual requirements of patients may be different hence each patient is advised diet as per their need.

Being Taller Increases Your Risk of Cancer!

According to a major study that provides a connection between height and cancer, it is stated that taller people are more prone to developing cancer. Research has found that the risk of developing any kind of cancer in women rises by 18% for an increase of every 10 cm in height. In men, the risk rises by 11%, even though height is not as major a factor as are obesity, smoking and a bad, unhealthy diet.

Several reasons have been put forward for the above statement. One of the reasons is that the number of body cells in taller people is more than people with average height. This leads to an increase in the number of cells which could potentially turn malignant.

While individually analysing the impact of height on different cancer forms, it was found that the highest increase in risk was in skin cancer (30% for every 10 cm increase in height), while a 20% increase was noted in taller women developing breast cancer.

Development of cancer in regions including the colon and rectum is known as colorectal cancer. Long legs have been surprisingly associated with this form of cancer. In comparison with shorter people, it was reported that taller people had a higher risk percentage of developing colorectal cancer. Two hypotheses regarding the formation of colorectal cancer have been developed. One hypothesis is that taller people have longer colons, which in turn result in more surface area where colon cancer can develop. The other hypothesis is that taller people experience increased levels of growth hormones. These particularly affect the length of their legs. The growth hormone called 'insulin-like growth factor 1' is increased during puberty and is considered to be a risk factor for colorectal cancers occurring at later stages.

Hi, I am currently living in UK and my family is in India. My father has a cancer history of more than 18 years. The symptoms started showing up in 1996 and the doctor did not advise for a scan that time. Later, he was detected with a large cancerous tumor on his left kidney and the entire kidney was taken out. The doctors advised him not to take Cigarettes as he was a chain smoker but he continued taking it at a reduced quantity for 10 years post operation and later in Nov, 2012 he was detected with one metastatic cancer tumor in his bran and several small nodules in his lungs and supra renal gland. The doctors prescribed him to take steroids before operation and post operation has has gone through complete remission of cancer. All nodules melted away on its own. However, he started showing symptoms of gastric ulcer. He started feeling racing heart due to anemia and he had black tarry stool and black vomiting in the month of August 2014. He quickly recovered and he was stable. But, he started having spicy food after a month. The symptoms came back strongly last December. Within a month, he recovered again. However, the symptoms keep coming these days and he is loosing his weight. Sometimes, he will be alright and start gaining weight and after 4 weeks the symptoms will come back again. There were 3-4 recurrences within a span of 6 months. Please advise.

Dear smoking is a silent killer. It does not happen overnight but slowly it gets absorbed in lungs and blood and not only damages lung but also other parts leading to cancers of head and neck, lungs, gastrointestinal tract like intestinal, rectal, bladder and kidney and even leukaemia. Annual health screening will help you apart from if you have any specific problem then you can meet doctors earlier also.
