My wife is undergoing chemotherapy sessions towards treatment of breast cancer. Her appetite and sleep are severely affected. She has spasms at the base of the spine and thigh muscles. Unable to sleep at all on her back. Is there any ayurvedic treatment that can bring her relief concurrently with chemotherapy.

Medical officer, BHMS, CGO
Homeopath, Kolkata
Those are the side effects of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is an immunosuppressant therapy and while a patient is already suffering from cancer she has already a low immunity over it again an immunosuppresant dosage it will make the patient feel low. I need the detailed report and prescriptions of the treatment she is undergoing then I can say whether I will proceed with Homoeopathy or not. So you need to send the reports and if the case can be talen then book for my consultation and I will suggest you with the medicines and needful. HOMOEOPATHY IS THE ONLY STREAM WHICH ACTS ON NANO PARTICLE STATE WHICH IS NECESSARY AND FRUITFUL IN MALIGNANCY AS IT CAN HIT THE CAUSE IN TH ROOTS and without any side effects effectively. Homoeopathy works miraculously on Breast CA. Now its your choice. Dr. S DAS HOMOEOPATHIC ONCOLOGICAL CONSULTANT

While massaging my body today I got something hard on the left on my breast. It's something like a lump, when I pressed it. I felt pain. Please tell me what is it? Is it something to worry about?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
It had to be fibroadenoma which unless large or causing pain, does not need to be removed. It is a benign tumour and very slow growing. If small then there is no treatment needed at present.

What are the causes of cancer and what are its symptoms and and what are its effect on humans?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is caused by some abnormal signal which usually control the growth of the cells. They are triggered by some carcinogens like tobacco, pollution, pesticides, industrial affluent, radiation exposure etc. They usually present as lump, mostly painless, unexplained weight loss, fever, anaemia, fatigue, non healing ulcer, difficulty in swallowing, altered bowel habits, bleeding etc. When there is uncontrolled growth of cells they start exausting body resources causing weakness, fatigue and organ failure and then start moving to other organs and effect their function aswell.

Mix these 3 ingredients and never fear cancer or any tumors!

PHD
Doctor, Delhi
Mix these 3 ingredients and never fear cancer or any tumors!

If you use these three ingredients every day, almost certainly there is no possibility of getting any kind of tumor.

The recipe is as follows:
Mix 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric with half a teaspoon of olive oil. In doing so, add a pinch of higher fresh black pepper. Mix these three ingredients in a cup.

You can consume this mixture as an addition in a variety of dishes, soups and salads. Just make sure that if you use them in cooked dishes, that these ingredients do not cook too much, it is best to add them to the very end.
If you drink them as the recipe states above, mix with a little water.

But what exactly prevents cancer and cancer spread?

All knowledge lies in turmeric. Turmeric is a spice in the form of a yellow powder, which is one of the components of curry.

Its anti-inflammatory abilities are incredibly powerful.

There is no other natural ingredient in the world that is more effective in reducing inflammation in the body.

Recent studies have revealed that turmeric prevents many types of cancer, such as colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, brain cancer.

Turmeric has only one flaw, which is that turmeric is difficult to degrade in the digestive tract.
Therefore, the ideal combination for the treatment and prevention of cancer is turmeric with pepper and ginger.

Pepper, according to research increases the efficiency of turmeric for up to 200 percent. In order to successfully prevent cancer and destroy cancer cells, this mixture should be used every day on many occasions.

Use it as often as it has no side effects.

It means cancer is localized to breast only. This stage of disease has very good prognosis but requires further treatment and follow up.

Cancer is uncontrolled proliferation of transformed cells in any part of the body. Neoplasm or tumor are used variably to describe any swelling or new growth. Benign growths don’t have potential to spread to other organs or parts of the body while malignancy or malignant growths have uncontrolled proliferation and metastatic potential. Transformation is multistep process with genetic alterations by which normal cells acquire malignant potential, uncontrolled proliferation capacity and capacity to spread to other parts of the body (metastasis) Worldwide cancer is responsile for 1 in 8 deaths. Most Common cancers are: Men Women Prostate breast Lung cervix and endometrium Colorectal lung What Causes Cancer? Cancer is usually multifactorial 1. Age- more in age group >60 years compared to younger age group 2. Obesity- Body mass index >30 3. Tobacco - Cigarette, Cigar, Bidi, Hookah, Smokeless tobacco like gutka, zarda etc. There is no safe form of tobacco. 4. Pan masala and supari 5. Alcohol 6. Ultraviolet rays exposure 7. Radiation Exposure 8. Genetic factors 9. Others- pollution, certain chemicals, infections Prevention of Cancer: 1. Stay away from tobacco products 2.

Cancer Screening: screening is for healthy individuals with education. Rather than going for unnecessary blind tests, programme for screening should be planned in consultation with your oncologist as requirements are different for different cancers and differs as per age groups and gender. Also screening is not effective in all cancers. Cancer education and awareness is has due importance. Some cancers in which screening has been shown to be effective includes breast, coclon, rectum, cervix, prostate, lung in high risk groups but as mentioned earlier it is planned with participation of both individual and oncologist.

I have suffering pain in breast from last 2-3 days and also pain in pubic from today Why it occurs and what treatment I have done.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Pain in breast when you are nearing your menstruation is normal due to hormonal changes and swelling, it reverts on its own and you can take analgesics and slightly restrict salt intake. Probably that also relates to your pubic pain. You can take some analgesics for the same.

Dear sir, cancer is a disease which is caused by mutations or change in genes structure due to some carcinogens. These carcinogens may be some infection, injury by chemicals, tobacco, pollution, pesticides, unhealthy eating habits, Radiation exposure anything.

There may be other side effects depending on medicines used but most of them are temporary and fade off with time as cells grow back.

What are of symptoms of oral cancer? Can it be cured? What are the foods that are essential for reducing the chances of it?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Oral cancers present as ulceration in oral cavity on tongue inner side of cheek, floor of mouth etc. One can also have a nodular growth, bleeding from it, neck swelling or nodal enlargement etc. Premalignant stages are reduced mouth opening, whitish patch, reddish patches etc. Must not take tobacco of any form, if any sharp tooth, then get it grinded or capping done, ill fitting dentures must be changed. Food containing antioxidants, lycopene have protective roles. Sprouts, leafy vegetables, turmeric, tuslsi leaves, wheatgrass etc may help.

First do the D & C you will get to know for sure that its cancer or not. Dont worry before the test as even if its cancer its curable as it will be a small tumor only, and if its non cancer then you need not go for any treatment, so do the test first.

I have a swollen lymph node on the right side of my neck from two months it comes with a very bad cold but till now its not gone and I am still having infection in my throat I also done a needle biopsy and everything came back normal but neither the infection nor the enlarged lymph node is gone. What should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
You must take a good course of antibiotics and anti allergic. You can check your sputum for sensitivity of antibiotics. Lymph node enlargement may be infection related though it is surprising why you have it for so long. Beyond this I need to examine and check your immune status to know the cause of infection.

This seems to cyclical mastalgia that occurs more during menstrual cycles. Nothing to worry. This is related to harmones and treatment is possible. Please consult a surgeon for confirmation of diagnosis by detailed history and examination as any proper treatment can only be advised after confirmation of disease.
