I'm 18 year old boy. I had a CT scan recently. For my nasal polyp removal operation. I heard that one CT scan can expose radiation as 200 chest x-ray. Is it true ? Will it increase the possibility for cancer?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
yes, the radiation exposure from one ct scan is many times to that of an xray. and it is also true that excessive radiation exposure can induce cancers. but there is also a limit ro radiation exposure in a year the body can ssfely tolerate. 1 or 2 ct scans done properly in a year for diagnosing a problem, do not increase your risk of developing cancer significantly. so don't worry.

Prostatitis treatments vary depending on the underlying cause. They can include: Antibiotics. This is the most commonly prescribed treatment for prostatitis. Your doctor will base the choice of medication on the type of bacteria that may be causing your infection. If you have severe symptoms, you may need intravenous (IV) antibiotics. You'll likely need to take oral antibiotics for four to six weeks but may need longer treatment for chronic or recurring prostatitis. Alpha blockers. These medications help relax the bladder neck and the muscle fibers where your prostate joins your bladder. This treatment may lessen symptoms, such as painful urination. Anti-inflammatory agents. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may make you more comfortable. Prostate massage. This is done by your physician using a lubricated, gloved finger — a procedure similar to a digital rectal exam. It may provide some symptom relief, but doctors disagree about how effective it is. Other treatments. Other potential treatments for prostatitis are being studied. These treatments include heat therapy with a microwave device and drugs based on certain plant extracts

Sir the need for surgery does not depend on the size but the severity of symptoms. However in cases with blood in urine, retention of urine, or damage to kidneys suspected due to prostate, surgery may be required irrespective of symptoms. Urine culture should be sterile prior to the surgery in case it is required.

Cancer is abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of cells leading to symptoms like palpable lump, ulceration, abnormal bleeding from anywhere, weight loss, difficulty in swallowing, change in voice, change in bowelor bladder habits etc depending on organ affected. Feeling lazy and sleepy is not any specific symptom of cancer, you should consult a neurologist to find out if it is pathological.

USG of right breast showing large hypoechoic SOL (22*15 mm) seen at upper quadrant and one small SOL (10*7 mm) seen in lower quardant. Is it breast cancer?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist,
Hi, it is most unlikely at your age to have breast cancer. Usually breast cancer presents as a single lump. I will need more features to make a diagnosis. Those sol (meaning space occupying lesions) will most likely be fibroadenomas which are benign lumps a caused by the normal changes in the breast with age. They will not turn to cancer. You can confirm it by getting an fnac done. It would be better if you consult a surgeon who can diagnose and treat it. Surgery is the only treatment for fibroadenomas, done if they are painful or large or for cosmetic reasons. Hope this helps. All the best.

What are the causes for getting Brest cancer in females and how can we identify the symptoms? And please suggest me presentation tips?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Breast cancer is caused by lifestyle changes like sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise, fatty diet, late onset of periods, not having children, late conception of first baby, not breast feeding, history of hormonal therapy or ocps, some times genetic. It usually presents as painless lump or skin changes like dimpling of skin etc. Routine breast self examination once a month five days after periods helps in early identification.

Visit a dentist and go for the treatment. Either rct+crown or extraction. Medicines will not work in these type of cases. Moreover due to these cavities your not able to chew and have proper food I guess. Correcting these issues will relieve you from malnutrition and gastric problems.

Hello, if there is any fracture, it should be stabilised first, if possible. Radiotherapy is usually given to the metastatic bones. I need to see the bone scan report so that I can exactly prescribe the treatment.
