Hello sir. I am 37 and diagnosed with stage 1ovarian cancer. Operated .Got six sessions of chemotherapy. And now cancer free. Before operation I had a blood filled mole at the front of foot thumb as I read somewhere that it is a first symbol of cancer. As it is dried little bit. I want to know is there any problem with this mole? As I want to remove it. And secondly can I get marry?

You can get the mole removed. I don't think it has any relation to the ovarian disease. You can definitely marry but your risk of recurrence will always be there so a consistent follow-up schedule has to be chalked and followed. Regarding conceiving-that can be decided by the extent of surgery done. All the Best.

8 Reasons Why You Should Eat Tomatoes

8 Reasons Why You Should Eat Tomatoes

1. Prevents cancer: as a magnificent source of vitamin c and different cell reinforcements, tomatoes can battle the development of abnormal cells that causes cancer. Lycopene has been connected with prostate tumour prevention. Epidemiologists recommend the consumption of tomato as it helps lower the possibility of prostate cancer. High fibre content of beta-carotene in fruits and vegetables has been proven to bring down the risk of colorectal cancer to a great extent.

2. Blood pressure: low sodium consumption keeps circulatory strain solid. Tomatoes are rich in potassium that helps in the same.

3. Heart's well-being: the fibre, potassium, vitamin c and choline content in tomatoes all bolster the heart's well-being. An expansion in potassium as well as a reduction in sodium is the most essential dietary change that an individual can make to lessen their danger of cardiovascular diseases. Tomatoes additionally contain folic corrosive, which keeps the homocysteine levels under control. It reduces the risk of heart diseases.

4. Diabetes: tomatoes help bring down the blood sugar level in people with type1 diabetes. Whereas, people with type 2 diabetes may have enhanced glucose, lipids and insulin levels. One measure of cherry tomatoes gives around 2 grams of fibre and helps them keep their levels neutralized.

5. Constipation: eating foods that are high in water substance and fibre like tomatoes can help with hydration and advance normal solid discharges. Fibre adds mass to stool and is important for bowel movement.

6. Eye health: tomatoes are a rich sources of lycopene, lutein and beta-carotene, which are intense cancer prevention agents. They have been helpful in protecting the eyes against harm related to the advancement of age-related macular degeneration.

7. Skin: collagen, a fundamental part of the skin, hair, nails and connective tissue, is dependent on vitamin c. An inadequacy of vitamin c leads to certain skin problems. As vitamin c is a capable cancer prevention agent, a low intake can affect the skin and cause harm from uv rays, infections and smoke. This usually results in wrinkles, hanging skin, blemishes and other antagonistic skin diseases.

8. Pregnancy: a good amount of folic acid needs to be present before and during pregnancy to ensure the infants good health inside the mother's womb. This can be found in tomatoes.

Dear lybrate-user, chances of re occurrence of cancer is not very uncommon. It can be a local re occurrence or metastasis. The key if to get yourself checked every 6 months. In case any lump/symptom is noticed, it should be catered immediately.

BPH is age related causing outlet obstruction. No treatment necessary till nocturnal frequency starts. Yoga may not help since it is a mechanical problem.

Dear lybrate user, benign hypertrophy of prostate is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. In this clinical condition multiple nodules are formed inside the prostate gland. These nodules often compress the urethra resulting in the narrowing of the lumen of urethra & producing a resistance to the urine flow. Resistance to urine flow requires the bladder to work harder during voiding, possibly leading to progressive enlargement, instability, or weakness of the bladder muscle. Benign hypertrophy of prostate can be easily diagnosed by an usg of whole abdomen along with blood test for prostate specific antigen (psa). Follow the given medication as directed:- 1) 5 drops of homoeopathic causticum 30 at early morning daily before brushing teeth 2) 5 drops of homoeopathic conium mac 30 before going to bath daily. 3) 5 drops of homoeopathic baryta carb 30 just one hour before dinner daily. 4) homoeopathic mother tincture sabal serrulata q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with the aforesaid medication few changes in your lifestyle are also necessary. Lifestyle alterations to address the symptoms include decreasing fluid intake before bedtime, moderating the consumption of alcohol and caffeine-containing products, and following a timed voiding schedule. Also it would be better if you could void the urine in sitting position.

How to detect oral cancer? I was suffering follicles on tonsil, I often use to press it out and which relieves me. Now from 6 months have passed no follicles seen. There is constant sore throat. I am habitual tobacco chewer. Early diagnosis may help me. Hence let me know how to get examined for oral/throat malignancy?

Hi early diagnosis of cancer is necessary as it will always improve the prognosis. And as you are a habitual consumer of tobacco I will advice you to go for a punch biopsy which is available in most of the dental clinics. There are also many screening test available which can be done chairside which includes toludene blue screening and exfoliative cytology. But you have to withdraw the habit of consuming tobacco as it will nothing will benefit you more than this.

My wife is a cancer patient (osteosarcoma) her chemotherapy is completed on 25thFebruary 2016 and her period resume on June 23, 2016 and in next month is on 18th July, 2016. We have unprotected sex after 26th day is there any chances of getting pregnant or is it safe for her. please reply soon.

Diploma in Radio Therapy, MBBS
Oncologist, Chennai
Kindly perform a Pregnancy test with the Pregnancy kit that is available at any nearest medical shop. The safe period for avoiding pregnancy is usually on the Day 1 to 7 at the start of cycle and the last 4-6 days in a normal 26 to 32 days cycle. You might still be on the safe period, but pregnancy test will confirm the same. Since she is under chemotherapy, she might have difficulties to carry out a normal pregnancy. It is better to give her at least 6 months gap from the last cycle of chemo therapy before getting pregnant. Do perform the test at the earliest.

1) Me and my girlfriend had sex on 2march and our condom broke in between our intercourse during which I didn't ejaculate yet, she took IDOZ 72 in 3 hrs, now from 11march on wards she is having bleeding with pains and her breasts are soft what could be the reason, is she pregnant? 2) we both had dry humping, she was having her pant and inner while I was naked, I didn't ejaculate but her pant area felt wet can she be pregnant?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
She must be having withdrawal bleeding post emergency contraception and that's okay. Even breast tenderness may be part of hormonal changes, it will settle down after her periods are over, meanwhile she can take pain killer, restrictions of salt and fomentation if very painful. No she can not get pregnant if no insertion or ejaculation in her vagina. Wet feeling may be due to her own discharge which becomes profuse at the time of foreplay or intercourse.

What is the remedy if the prostate glans got enlarged and galbladder stone of 20mm in urine bladder?

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Delhi
Treatment of prostatic enlargement depends upon the severity of disease. In initial stages medication is prescribed but in significant enlargement or in case of medication failure, surgical removal of prostate is done. The second part of your question is misleading as gall stone and urinary bladder stone are two different entities. How ever for gall stone of any size, and urinary bladder stone of > 10 mm, surgery is the treatment of choice.

What are the causes of skin cancer and how it can be cured? And what is the major cause of this disease?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Skin cancers are superficial cancers caused by abnormal growth of few cells of skin cells leading to ulceration, lumps, bleeding etc. Major causes are ultraviolet radiation, radiation exposure by direct handling, lack of melanin pigment which has protective effect,

My mom age is 45 yrs. She is feeling itchy on the chest area and sometimes the skin on the chest is paining also. Are these symptoms of breast cancer and what is the way to cure it? Pls help me I am afraid. Pls. No other symptoms r there.

MS
General Surgeon, Panipat
Ms. lybrate-user. Only itching can't tell you about cancer of breast it can be simple some allergic manifestation of skin which can be sort out with treatment. If there is any history of breast cancer in the family then get her examined and get her mammography done. If every thing is normal then forget it.

My wife has a lump in her right breast since birth of our child and it feels no pain when it is touched. Also it seems no increase or decrease in size. What to do sir.

FICS, FCCP (USA), DNB (General Surgery), MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon, Delhi
Any breast lump has to be treated with caution .From what you say it seems to be a fibroadenoma which is innocous. A complete breast investigatiion schedule including FNA (fine needle biopsy) should be done .Surgery is the only mainstay of treatment and should be a lumpectomy followed by a histopath examination Clinical examination by the surgeon will dictate what sequence the management will follow, hence the patient must see a surgeon as soon as possible and follow hisadvice.

Turp is commonly done surgery. Any urologist can do it reasonably well. Turp cannot b done robotically. So go ahead with your surgery.

Mr. lybrate-user. You are lucky In spite of enlarged prostate you don't have any urinary problem. I suggest you to be careful in winter season as prostatic engorgement increases and some people who are having prostatism I mean who have urinary problems may increase a bit so take bath with Warm water don't move outside in cold days and forget about any treatment till you have symptoms. For blockages in coronary vessels Take yoga classes and do it regularly it will also improve. See your physician if you have blood pressure or diabetes.
