Dear sir, blood cancer is caused by abnormal proliferation of one of the components of blood causing suppression of others.hence leading to symptoms like prolonged fever, frequent infection bleeding, easy bruising, cough, bone pains, lumps or lymphadenopathy etc. Ayurveda if you want to combine, should be in conjunction and after consulting medical oncologist. You can also take immunoboosters to enhance immunity.

5 Amazing Foods That Help Fight Cancer!

5 Amazing Foods That Help Fight Cancer!

Cancer is one of the worst diseases, which kills millions of people across the world. While there is a wide range of treatment options available, the best way to deal with it is to ensure a good diet along with a healthy lifestyle. Here is a list of cancer-fighting food products, which can immensely help to prevent cancer.

  1. Green vegetables: Leafy green vegetables have multiple health benefits. They are not only rich in minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and antioxidants, but also have very low content of calories, toxins, and sodium. Being antiviral and antibacterial in nature, green vegetables can successfully inactivate carcinogens, halt metastasis and pause the formation of a tumour. Certain vegetables contain isothiocyanates that can detox the cells. Some of the vegetables that are mighty effective in countering cancer cells include kale, romaine, watercress, nutritious spinach, collard greens etc.
  2. Berries: Berries are one of the best antioxidants among all food items, owing to their high ORAC score. Their antiviral and anti-fungal nature of berries is extremely healthy for the body. Moreover, abundant supply of vitamin A and C makes berries a perfect agent for increasing body immunity. Free radicals are one of the top reasons for metastasis. The proanthocyanidin content of berries helps the body to get a hang of free radicals, thereby decreasing the chances of cancer cells to grow rapidly. They can be consumed daily with any meals.
  3. Spices and herbs: There are a lot of herbs and spices, which boost the immune system and prevents cancer cells to grow further. Turmeric, for instance, is scientifically proved to be a great agent for reducing tumor size and effectively countering breast cancer and colon cancer. Some of the other herbs and spices include black pepper, ginger, raw garlic, parsley, oregano, and basil. They can be consumed daily in the form of juice or along with regular meals.
  4. Organic meat: Many scientists are of the view that organic meat does wonder in a cancer diet. Liver of beef and chicken has high B12 content and helps to remove harmful toxins from the digestive tract and liver. They can balance hormone, digest fat and counter the side effects of triglycerides, drugs, and obesity. This can be included in the diet every alternate day.
  5. Seeds and nuts: Flax seeds and chia seeds are few nutrient-power packed foods in the world. They should be included in the diet due to high fiber, mineral, and fatty acid content. Some other healthy seeds that can pay rich dividends in fighting cancer include walnut, sprouted bean, sunflower seeds etc. Nuts and seeds with all their nutritional qualities can successfully stop metastasis, reduce tumor size and increase immunity in the body, if consumed daily. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

Hi, My father is detected with stomach cancer with signet ring cell morphology. He underwent partial gastrectomy surgery. Pathologist tested removed tumor and lymph nodes and gave report that the cancer is in stage 3 now. Oncologist suggested to undergo 28 sittings of radiation along with 3 chemo injections in parallel. Chemo injections are given once in every two weeks. My father is diabetic and suffering with hypertension. His age is 59 years. Can he undergo this treatment? What could be the side effects? Does he need to undergo 28 sittings of radiation? Please help me with your answers.

Stage III stomach cancer is treated by concurrent chemoradiation. Chemotherapy tolerance depends on patient age, performance status, presence of comorbidities etc. Side effects of chemotherapy depends on type of chemotherapy used. Share the details of chemotherapy regimen for further opinion.

I have read an article regarding cancer that plastic is the main cause of Cancer, is that true?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, plastics when burnt or heated produces fumes, chemicals and byproducts that are carcinogenic, so they may be one of the factors causing cancer but can't say that they are main reasons as there may be multiple other reasons like lifestyle, lack of exercise, junk fatty food, hormonal imbalance, tobacco, radiation exposure, pollution, pesticides, industrial affluent inheritance that may cause cancer.

My father is 74 years old, diagnosed with Prostate cancer (life changed after biopsy) Hi, My father is 74 years old and was doing great and very healthy. With frequent urination issue, we went and found that prostate was enlarged and they suggested to biopsy though his PSA was not so high (7ng/ml). Post biopsy (which was anyways negative/benign for prostate cancer), everything got changed,

MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon, Chennai
Hello. I'm sorry to hear about your father's condition. Prostrate enlargement is seen in elderly males, and its symptoms are often gruesome if not kept in check. Most prostatic enlargements are due to temporary prostatitis (infection in the prostrate) or a benign prostrate hypertrophy (bph). Bph is enlargement of the prostrate gland around the urethra which restricts the outflow of urine, hence resulting in the symptoms of urgency, inadequacy and frequency. Every patient has to be thoroughly evaluated to rule out prostrate cancer. Psa alone is not a very reliable test. A ultrasound abdoment/transrectal ultrasound along with post voidal residual urine volume has to be measured. This will help you diagnose and decide the management schedule.

Skin cancers are caused by ultraviolet radiation exposure, chemical injuries,post burn or marjolin ulcer etc. Avoid excessive sun exposure and use adequate sunscreen for ultraviolet protection, avoid chemicals directly on skin and use minimum cosmetic products and be aware of their components, treat any kind of infection promptly, regular self examination for any kind of growth, nonhealing ulcer, nodes etc.

How to prevent cancer in early stages? And also suggest which foods are given strength and energy for suffering with cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, easiest and most effective way to find cancer in early stages is by regular self examination. Since we know our body the best, it's best to spend some time on monthly basis to look for any obvious changes, any lump or any abnormalities. Do consult doctors annually to look for any potential problems even if we don't have any symptoms. Coloured fruits and vegetables, adequately cleaned by either lime water and vinegar or diluted potassium permagnate to remove pesticides and artificial colours help.

Respected sir my name is pratiksha and my age is 24. I have a benign fibroadenoma so I would like to know that in future there is a change to get cancer. I consulted with a doctor and he told me it's benign. I have not done surgery till now. It's is compulsory to remove the tumor. If I don't remove in lifetime will there be a risk?

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist,
Fibroadenoma changing to a cancer is quite rare. However there is a lifetime risk of developing breast cancer and it depends upon the specific features of fibroadenoma which can be identified in a biopsy test. If the biopsy test says that the risks are less then you can continue with a conservative treatment without surgery unless it's uncomfortable for you or if it grows in size or becomes painful later.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your father. Well, dry mouth is one of the common side effects of H& N radiotherapy. Alternatively, he may rinse his mouth with half a glass of luke warm water to which a tsp of olive oil and honey is added, 3 to 4 times daily. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely

I am 74 years male, have some prostate enlargement; with the result frequent urinate in night especially during winter. Summer is not much problem for urinating. I also have problem of large sneezing. I have no sugar problem and my bp ranges from 135 to 150. Can you suggest simple home made treatment for this.

DNB, MBBS

Sir prostate enlargement can be benign or malignant. It needs evaluation by serum psa levels, sonography, and transrectal multiple core biopsy for confirmation. If it is benign can be started on some medications or else treatment as per the diagnosis.
