Could you please suggest weather radiology is best or chemotherapy for treatment of cancer.

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist, Mandsaur
Radiotherapy & chemotherapy are two ways to treat cancer. Few cancers are more sensitive to radiotherapy while others are radio resistant. Same way few are chemotherapy resistant while other cancers are chemo sensitive. So it depends on nature of cancer and accordingly it is decided to treat cancer by chemotherapy, radiotherapy or by both modalities. Nothing like which modality is better, in few cancer radiotherapy is good while in others chemotherapy is better.

What is fibroadenoma? Is this any serious health issue? What should be done to git rid of this?

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
A fibroadenoma is a non-cancerous tumor in the breast that is commonly found in women under the age of 30. The exact cause of fibroadenomas is not known. Hormones such as estrogen may play a part in the growth and development of the tumors. Taking oral contraceptives before the age of 20 has been associated with a higher risk of developing fibroadenomas.

Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. When did you finish your chemo radiation cycles? assuming that you are getting intense pain in throat, at present, I shall only advise you to gargle with a warm solution of chamomile tea, lemon and honey, three times daily. Along with, you can also try warm saline gargling, with a pinch of fresh turmeric/ salt added to warm water. Do try hot steam inhalation (only) a couple of times daily and use a good humidifier in the bed room. However, I may be able to help you feel better still, if I get to know as to where exactly you stand today with respect to your cancer treatment.

What kind of food habit can able to cause ulcer and stomach cancer? Are they have any difference?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Spicy food, smoked salmon and fish, lots of chilli, apprehensive people are more likely to develop ulcers. There is a bacteria helicobactor pylori also responsible for both ulceration and cancer. Ulcer is simply breach in mucosa, whereas cancer is abnormal growth which may spread to other parts also.

Dear mam, breast lump and chest pain may be separate problems, for breast lump, try to feel from the flat of hands and you can also go for clinical breast examination by a clinician supplementing it with ultrasound breast. Don't worry, at your age we usually find benign lumps.

Can vitamin and mineral supplements prevent cancer. And will eating red and processed meat give me cancer?

Hi lybrate-user, supplements do have a role in preventing cancers. However, it is always advisable to consult a medical/ alternative medicine practitioner who can assess the need appropriately, and recommend rightly. Eating red meat and processed meat is likely to increase the risks of certain cancers. Therefore, their consumption is best restricted. In the best interest of health, its always better to go for a nutritious and balanced diet (preferably mediterranean) that includes adequate roughage and water. Along with the above-mentioned, a healthy lifestyle with daily exercise, de-stressing, relaxation, psycho-social interaction and a positive mindset goes a long way in keeping this often chronic, dreaded and debilitating disease like cancer at bay or reduce the risk significantly. Hope this clarifies. Take care and all the very best.

Hello, although your question is not clear but if its only few days passed after the surgery and if there is pain and swelling in that area then you should take rest and avoid exercising. If its been many months after operation then you can do exercising and follow a normal routine life. Take care.

What is the survival in number of years for a Breast cancer survivor, who is free from any recurrences/secondaries after treatment with all three modalities (Surgery, Chemo & Radio therapy)

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, now that more studies in terms of genetic analysis is being done, we know there is a group who respond very well and are long survivors. It also depends on the hormonal status ER PR positive patients are better responders. So it is difficult to say in general as the survival will depend on Histopathology, grade and lymph node status, ER PR status, initial stage and then newly analysed genetic status. Earlier stage more number of relapse free survival, receptor positive, better survival etc.

Dear cigarette and sharab are not necessarily the cause of blood cancer. There are many more reasons of getting blood cancer the chief of which is genetic followed by some professional exposures, followed by many more causes like viral infections, exposure to dyes and chemicals, working or getting exposed to radiations and so on.
