Lymph node cannot be palpated on cheek. It must be something else. Dat may be fibromatous tissue. Only excision is required that to after biopsy.

Pea 4.2 2 years back then 3.75 6 month back 5.7 usg report 3 years back grade 2 prostate.
Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The normal prostate size for an adult male is 15cc to 30cc (one half ounce to one ounce). Men whose prostate gland is larger than 30 cc are more likely to be diagnosed with either benign hyperplasia (enlargement) or prostate cancer than those whose prostate is in the normal range. Please work with your doctor for treatment. Take care.

Symptoms Of Prostate Disease!

Symptoms Of Prostate Disease!

What menstrual problems are to women, prostate problems are to men. The prostate is a gland in the lower abdomen that aids in the production of semen. The prostate is walnut sized in a young man, but can get enlarged with age. As it grows bigger, it can cause a number of problems. These are commonly seen after a man celebrates his 50th birthday.

There are three common prostate problems faced by men. Some of the symptoms that can tell if a man has a prostate problem are:

1. Difficulty faced while urinating.
2. The urge to urinate frequently at night.
3. Constant feeling of a full bladder.
4. Pain while urinating.
5. Blood in urine.

Prostatitis

This can be defined as inflammation of the prostate gland. In most cases the cause of this inflammation is unknown. However, there are two types of prostatitis; bacterial and nonbacterial. While the former reacts well to antibiotics, the latter is more difficult to control. Symptoms of this disease vary from one person to the next. Some of the factors that could trigger this disease are:

1. Chemical irritants
2. Past bacterial infection
3. Dysfunctional pelvic floor muscles
4. Sexual abuse
5. Chronic anxiety

Enlarged prostate

As mentioned earlier, as men get older, the prostate gland tends to grow in size. This growth is benign, but can block the bladder neck and prostatic urethra. This can cause problems urinating and lead to acute urinary retention. This can be very painful. Inserting a catheter can provide temporary relief and help release stored urine. Chronic retention is much less common and is associated with high bladder pressure and can damage the kidneys.

Prostate cancer

Advancing age and family genetic history are said to be the main triggers of prostate cancer. This type of cancer can remain restricted to the prostate gland in its early stages but may spread to the other glands as the cancer advances. This can also cause the growth of secondary tumors in the bones.

The only way to correctly diagnose a prostate problem is with a thorough physical examination. This includes a digital rectal exam where the doctor will insert a gloved finger into your rectum to check the size of your prostate, a blood test, mid stream urine tests and ultrasounds. In some cases a biopsy of the prostate may also be required. Depending on the diagnosis, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics, surgery, radiotherapy or hormone therapy to manage your prostate.  If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.

What are the symptoms and measures to cure blood cancer and what should I do now?

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
People who have blood cancer can have problems with bleeding and serious infections. Seek immediate for symptoms such as uncontrolled bleeding, severe sweating, difficulty breathing, pale or blue lips or fingernails, high fever (greater than 101 degrees Fahrenheit), fast heart rate, confusion, loss or change in level of consciousness, or anxiety.. no measure, cure depends on so many factors. thanks

Sir I have a round shape bone like a tumor behind my head. It's too hard and I still never feel any pains for this. I consulted a doctor and used homeopathic medicines but it doesn't work on it. Is it may be a tumor?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, We need to clinically evaluate for any conclusions as there may be bony defect Or maybe some tumour. You can also get a CT SCAN done to know about the pathology.

Naturopathic Integrative Oncology!

Facts:

  1. Cancer is the most dreaded and complicated non-communicable disease, with some getting cured and some getting a prolonged life after treatment.

  2. The conventional cancer treatment modalities especially chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery are believed to be costly, are known to have serious side-effects, and the disease can still relapse.

  3. There is an ever-increasing demand for traditional/ natural medicine by cancer patients.

  4. Majority of the cancer patients, worldwide, resort to complementary and alternative medicines (CAM) -

    • For reducing the side effects of conventional treatment, enhance quality of life (QOL) and improve clinical outcomes.

    • Apprehension of failure - of any single line of treatment failing to arrest/ cure the disease prompts patients/ caregivers to try out multiple approaches, at times frantically, with a hope to improve prognosis.

  5. Most of the patients do not disclose their CAM approaches to their medical oncologists.

  6. The treatment plans, in a multi-dimensional approach as mentioned above, thus are largely un-coordinated and enhances the risk of drug interactions and adverse events which can jeopardize the chances of achieving the overall treatment goals.

What is Naturopathic Integrative Oncology?

Naturopathic Integrative Oncology attempts bringing in appropriate CAM therapies that are evidence-based, safe, effective and which synergistically complement the conventional treatment modalities making the treatment as a whole all the more effective through improved/ optimized clinical outcomes (especially QOL & OS) and reduced adverse events. It helps manage symptoms, control side-effects, improve the state of physical & mental wellbeing, and speed up recovery. An integrated approach to treatment not only helps add days to the life of a patient but also helps add life to the days that a patient gets to survive.

Why Naturopathic Integrative Oncology?

  1. Cancer is a very complicated disease and its management presents with an enormous challenge. While the standard of care, by virtue of having demonstrated high clinical efficacy, have been chemotherapy, radiation and / or surgery, there still are treatment challenges owing to side effects, drug resistance, and irresponsiveness to conventional treatment of certain advanced stage cancers. It hence requires a strategic, well-researched, holistic & all encompassing/ integrated team based approach to control the same effectively. This necessitates the use of suitable CAM therapies as an adjuvant to conventional therapy.
  2. Improved clinical outcomes, especially quality of life (QOL) & overall survival (OS). It facilitates patients not only exist but also live life well.
  3. Avert adverse events/ reactions that may result owing to an oversight of the integrative oncology essentials.
  4. Cost effective treatment and increased patient satisfaction. It allows a customized/ individualized integrative treatment for each patient basis his financial status, clinical history, diagnosis, current treatment regime, spiritual belief, psychological & physical adverse effects etc all.

How (& Where) can Naturopathic Integrative Oncology Help?

  1. Integrative Palliative Support (CAM)

    • For ameliorating cancer symptoms & side effects of cancer therapies thereby improving QOL. To exemplify, anxiety, depression, cancer related pain, weakness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, hiccups, diarrhoea, gas/ flatulence, mucositis, alopecia, constipation, anorexia, cough, sleep disturbance/ insomnia, headache, anaemia, peripheral neuropathy etc all can be managed effectively using CAM therapies.

    • Palliative support, in line with the above-mentioned, can be rendered at any point during a patient’s illness to help him feel comfortable. However, should there be any severe aggravation of existing symptoms or acute health conditions, one needs to promptly seek emergency & competent medical help, as locally available, to address the same suitably.

  2. Integrative Cancer Treatment (CAM) for patients who -

    • Consciously choose to not go for full scale conventional treatment for whatsoever reasons.

    • Have advanced and intractable malignancies where conventional therapy has not been able to effectively control the disease progression. Such patients are likely to seek CAM treatment for not only improving QOL but also add days to life as possible contextually.

CAM Modalities in Naturopathic Integrative Cancer Treatment:

  1. Diet & Nutrition/ Lifestyle
  2. Herbal/ Botanical medicine
  3. Homeopathy
  4. Dietary supplements/ Vitamins
  5. Exercise, yoga, meditation
  6. Music therapy
  7. Acupuncture
  8. Reiki/ Prayer Healing
  9. Massage/ Reflexology

Please note that it is at the discretion of the naturopathic/ integrative oncologist to decide on the appropriate CAM modalities, subject to the individual patient’s needs and as appropriate contextually.

Successful Naturopathic Integration Requirements?

For the alternative medicine (s) one decides to integrate with (the current conventional treatment regime), it is essential on the part of the practioner(s) to clearly understand the following for a successful integration -

  • Patient’s current status including his clinical history, diagnosis, treatment regime, physical/ psychological make-up, belief system, financial capability and any other explicit requirement of the patient.
  • Evidence-based clinical efficacy & safety profile.
  • Action mechanism
  • Herb drug interactions
  • Side effects
  • Long term health impact
  • Pharmacokinetics
  • Dosage & Mode of administration etc all.

Dear Doctor, my aunt feels fear and she says that she can't leave for longer days ESP. When she is alone.

Probably she is having depression, So consult a Psychiatrist. For cancer follow up do check up every 3-6 monthly for 5 years as chance of recurrence is more in first 5 yrs.

Hello sir. I am 25 year old. I am a student. I had used tobacco products from last 10years. Now I want to quite this. But I am unable to do this. I am getting afraid that may be I get caught by cancer. Suggest me what should I do. I also unable to concentrate on my studies.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, it's really surprising that from age of 15 yrs you have been consuming tobacco. It's high time, you must quit. Tobacco has addictive tendency, so first you have to be determined, make up your mind and stay away from such places or people who distribute this. You can use nicotine gums or patches to kill the urge for time being. You can use alternative chewing materials like sauf, clove or mouth freshners to keep your mouth engaged. I have seen that determination and willing ness to quit is the best way to quit. Life is very precious, save it.
