My father is 58 years old. His prostrate is enlarged. Going to urine frequently. Please advice what are the foods and vegetables to take and what are the items to avoid and please give your valuable suggestions.

No food, fruit or vegetable will reduce or palliate symptoms. Kindly get to a Urologist and get his symptom score assessed to know whether he needs surgery or not. Also get a PSA done to rule out cancer of the prostate.

Understanding the Stages & Symptoms of Uterine Cancer

MBBS, MD
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Understanding the Stages & Symptoms of Uterine Cancer

The uterus is a very important organ within the human reproductive system as this is the chamber where an embryo grows into a baby. Due to a multitude of factors, the incidence of uterine cancer has been on the rise. Let's look at some of its symptoms.

Symptoms of uterine cancer: When cells within the uterus grow abnormally and turn malignant, it may be termed as uterine cancer. This may be in the form of a fibroid or tumor or be part of the uterine tissue itself. It may be caused due to a multitude of factors such as late menopause, radiation exposure, estrogen treatments and many others. Some of the common symptoms for uterine cancer could be:

  • Pain in the abdomen, lower back and especially the pelvic area.
  • Pain during urination,
  • Weight loss without any apparent reason
  • Vaginal bleeding with or without discharge
  • Pain during sex

Stages of uterine cancer: Before we understand the stages of uterine cancer you need to know how doctors diagnose the various stages. This is done by the three following steps in the TNM method:

  1. Tumor: Doctors try and search for tumors and locate them within the uterus, estimate its size and whether it is malignant or not.
  2. Node: If the tumor is malignant, then doctors try to find out whether the tumor has reached the lymph nodes or not.
  3. Metastasis: Doctors look for Metastasis, which is whether the cancer has spread to other organs within the body and to what extent.

Stages of cancer: Cancer is primarily grouped in five stages from 0 to V according to the T, N and M stages mentioned below.

  • Stage 0 - This is a very early stage of cancer where the cells have malignant growth but are still small in number and haven't spread anywhere.
  • Stage I - If the cancer has developed a little, but is restricted within the uterus, it is considered as stage one. This is also further divided into Stage 1A and 1B.
  • Stage II - When the cancer has started spreading, but only to some parts of the cervix from the uterus, it is diagnosed as stage 2 uterine cancer.
  • Stage III - Categorized into Stage IIIA, Stage IIIB, Stage IIIC1 and Stage IIIC2, it is primarily where the cancer has spread to other organs, but it is only limited to the pelvic area.
  • Stage IV A - When the cancer has gone beyond the pelvic area and also spread to the rectum and bladder area.
  • Stage IV B - This is where the cancer has metastasized in the groin area or gone to other organs within the body as well.

I am suffering from fibroadenoma since a long time but I have been taking homeopathy medicine since last six months. The time I take medicine my tumour is in small size but if I stop taking it, my tumour grows. What should I do to remove the tumour completely except having a surgery?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist,
Dear there is no other option than getting it removed surgically for complete relief. There is always a chance given your age and description that the lump may subside by itself over a period of time (usually years). But it also possible that it may not regress on its own. If it is causing you distress, surgical removal is ideal.

ECMO New Era of Medicicne

Homeopath,
ECMO New Era of Medicicne

What is ECMO?
Like dialysis for unfunctional kidney, Ecmo for unfunctional lung.

Ecmo stands for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. It is a method of giving oxygen for the body when icu pateint lungs and/or heart are not able to supply oxygen on their own. 

Why ICU pateint put on ECMO?

Doctors place ICU patients on ECMO when patients are not able to supply oxygen to the body.

ICU patients’ lungs fail for a number of reasons including pneumonia, lung cancer, pulmonary edema, pulmonary embolism and COPD.

 When a patient’s lungs fail, he/she first is intubated (breathing tube) and hooked up to a ventilator (breathing machine).
 However, sometimes lungs are so damaged that providing oxygen through intubation is not enough.

This is when doctors turn to v-v ecmo.
A heart can fail for many reasons including heart attack, pulmonary embolism, bad valve disease, or worsening heart failure. When a heart fails, doctors try to fix the underlying problem. They may also start medications (called ionotropes) to help improve the pump function of the heart. If medications are not enough, doctors will turn to v-a ecmo.

How long can someone stay on ecmo?

That is a complicated question. Due to the risks of ecmo discussed above, doctors try to keep patients on ecmo for as short a time as possible. Often patient will be on ecmo for several days up to 1-2 weeks. Every day, several blood and imaging tests are done to determine if a patient is ready to come off ecmo. As the technology of ecmo improves, hopefully side effects will decrease and patients can remain on ecmo for longer periods of time.

What is the difference between ecmo and a ventilator (breathing machine)?

Both ecmo and a ventilator aim to provide oxygen to the body when the patient’s own lungs and breathing are failing. The ventilator assists the patient’s own lungs by pushing oxygen with pressure into the lungs. Ecmo instead provides oxygen directly via a catheter placed in a patient’s vein or artery. We almost always try oxygenating a patient with a ventilator first. However, when a patient’s lungs are too sick for this, we turn to ecmo to assist in providing oxygen to the body. V-v ecmo provides oxygen through a vein. This blood then has to travel to the heart and be pumped around the rest of the body through arteries. Therefore, with v-v ecmo or with a ventilator, a patient must have a well-functioning heart to get the oxygen pumped throughout the body. V-a ecmo has the additional advantage of pumping blood directly to arteries. This “by-passes” the heart and is therefore the method of ecmo we use when a patient’s heart is failing.

I am 67 years old male person. I am experiencing some prostate problem for the last one and half years sometimes there is no free flow of passing urin. Please advise.

M.S.
General Surgeon, Jaipur
Increase in size of prostate is a common problem in males with increasing age and as it is present at outlet of urinary bladder it obstructs passage of urine. Do not ignore. Get a usg done. And psa levels. Get examined by a surgeon or urologist who can advise medicine.

My mom was suffering from GLIOMA or lymphoma .we took a safe side and went for radio therapy before biopsy .radiotherapy is a treatment of lymphoma .but she is now totally unconscious after 5 radio therapies. We had radiotherapy till 1 st of this month. After radiotherapy her creatinine is 5 and urea is 173. After solving the nephro problems can we go for neuro surgery after biopsy?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, At the outset treating with radiotherapy without biopsy is totally wrong. May be she is unconscious because of high urea. If the nephro problem is settled she needs to be worked up for proper diagnosis after which proper treatment can be planned.

What are the symptoms of breast cancer? I oftenly get pain in the breast. Is it a symptom of a breast disease?

BAMS, MD Ayurveda
Sexologist, Lonavala
Often getting breast pain is not a symptom of breast cancer. If you notice these symptoms swelling of all or part of the breast. Skin irritation or dimpling. Breast pain. Nipple pain or the nipple turning inward. Redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin. Then you need ayurvedic treatment.
