Yes, a lump is not a good sign, though it can be a harmless lump also, so please consult a oral and maxillofacial surgeon for assesment.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled growth of one of the components of blood mostly suppression of others.hence leading to symptoms like prolonged fever, frequent infection, anemia, easy bleeding or bruising, cough, Lymph node enlargement etc. Blood cancer is caused by abnormal mutations or change in genes which can manifest at early years of age that's why even children can suffer. Blood cancer is treated by chemotherapy mainly.

How serious is Prostrate, what is the stage of must surgery, is there any chance of curing by medicine ?

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Delhi
First of all there is no definite cure for prostatic enlargement as this gland keeps on increasing in size under influence of male hormones. Medicines can halt the progression of size but once you stop medication, the growth of the gland recurs. Similarly surgery can only remove the excessive gland tissue present at that particular time, It won't stop the gland from further growth. So your decision to undergo surgery depends upon control of symptoms by drugs. If the difficulty in urination is relieved by medicines then you don't require surgery. If your problem exists despite medicines then you have to go under the knife.

My wife is a cancer patient (osteosarcoma) her chemotherapy is completed on 25thFebruary 2016 and her period resume on June 23, 2016 and in next month is on 18th July, 2016. We have unprotected sex after 26th day is there any chances of getting pregnant or is it safe for her. please reply soon.

Diploma in Radio Therapy, MBBS
Oncologist, Chennai
Kindly perform a Pregnancy test with the Pregnancy kit that is available at any nearest medical shop. The safe period for avoiding pregnancy is usually on the Day 1 to 7 at the start of cycle and the last 4-6 days in a normal 26 to 32 days cycle. You might still be on the safe period, but pregnancy test will confirm the same. Since she is under chemotherapy, she might have difficulties to carry out a normal pregnancy. It is better to give her at least 6 months gap from the last cycle of chemo therapy before getting pregnant. Do perform the test at the earliest.

With proper treatment 5-yr survival rate in stage 2 breast cancer is very good. Radiotherapy will be required for tumor size more than 5 cm or when there is lymph node involvement. If the surgery is BCS not MRM, postoperative radiotherapy will be given. Chemotherapy toxicity depends in particular chemotherapy drugs. Share the details of chemotherapy treatment for further information.
