What lifestyle changes—such as diet, exercise, and rest—do you recommend I make to stay as healthy as possible before, during, and after treatment of cancer?

Oncologist, Guntur
Should have positive mind & think like cancer is also one of the diseases & take treatment. Should take proper diet rich in vitamins, micronutrients, fibers (green leafy vegetables, fruits etc). Should continue normal daily routine with mild exercise like walking to stay fit.

Prognosis of lung cancer depends a number of factors like stage at diagnosis, age, histopathological sub-type of the tumor, performance status of the patient, etc. If the tumor is metastatic or locally recurrent after chemotherapy, then targeted therapy can be useful with much reduced toxicity.

Does Chewing tobacco causes any chronic disease (cancer etc). I have heard from many old people stating that "i have been chewing tobacco from past fifty years and nothing harmful has happened to me" Even people are saying that if you chew for 10 minutes for 10 times day then I won't be harmful. Please clarify my doubt. Thank you.

Hi , I appreciate you seeking help. Well, weight loss, weakness, anorexia, ascitis, edema etc all are seen in liver cancer. Your low appetite, and hence the associated weight loss, may be because of the side effect of present medication as well. You can check with your oncologist / physician on the same too. In general, however, I would advise that you try having multiple small meals than three larger ones. Should your health permit, you can also go for some gentle yet safe exercises (like walking) which is likely to help too. Try have healthy and balanced meals that suit your taste, and also have it in a relaxed environment. You may listen to music or watch your favorite TV program while taking your food. You can connect with me with all relevant diagostics & treatment history to help you out specifically with safe natural medications that can ameliorate your present heath concerns. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely,

Any treatment for lymphoma Hodgkin cancer that can be carried apart from chemo? Patient also has heart working 25%, Parkinson, copd and diabetes.

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
Chemotherapy with abvd regimen with or without radiotherapy is considered standard treatment in hodgkin lymphoma. Elderly patients may have difficulty tolerating abvd chemotherapy. In this situation the options apart from chemotherapy includes: 1. If the disease is in early stages, it can be treated with radiotherapy only for those patients who is unable to tolerate chemotherapy. 2. If the subtype of hodgkin lymphoma is nlphl, it can be treated with targeted therapy with rituximab. 3. But if it is classic subtype and advanced disease another form of targeted therapy is experimented with brentuximab vedotin.

I have been smoking regularly for 40 year, I want to get some test done to check my health and the early risk of cancer (if any). What tests should I go for?

Oncologist, Mumbai
Smoking exposes you too various types of cancer mainly being lung cancer and cancer of your aerodigestive tract. This means your lung, mouth, wind pipe, food pipe and stomach are at risk. The maximum risk is with the first two. There is also the risk of cardiac problems. I would advise you to ideally undergo a comprehensive health check for cardiac status (stress test), lung function (pft) and others. For cancer though there are no reliable tests to detect cancers early, an oral exam by the surgeon at the health check up, an endoscopy if persistent ulcer complaints and a low dose ct scan of the chest are advised in chronic smokers. (though as I mentioned earlier, none are foolproof.)

Unlikely to be lung carcinoma. But if you are constantly having problem get ct / mri of chest with neck. Get one ecg checked by physician.

Hi, I am 28 years old. When pressed over my breast it pains but after the periods is over the tenderness is less. But now I found my left nipple inverted a little but when touched it gets averted. Do I need to worry and visit a gynae?

MS - General Surgery
Oncologist, Ludhiana
Cyclic pain in breast is symptom of fibroadenosis (benign breast disease, normally this does not needs treatment but if it interferes with your daily routine or sever pain patient may need treatment. Avoid salt, fried food and caffeine during pre-menstrual period. Nipple retraction which averts on touching, it is not worrisome. I suggest you to go for ultrasound of both breasts. Breast examination is the domain of surgeon, not a gynecologist.

Since few days a nerve bump like structure occur in her hand something like tumour. I'm very upset. What is this? Does cancer can occur in hand also? Please suggest me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam it could be schwannoma or ganglion, usually benign and can be excised. There can be malignant tumours as well in hand like skin cancers, fibrosarcoma or bone tumours. Most likely the one you are suffering from may be benign and can be observed or excised, but once you show it to a clinician to be really sure.

4 Foods That Help Fight Skin Cancer

4 Foods That Help Fight Skin Cancer

Skin cancer most often develops on skin that has faced sun exposure. At the same time, it can also affect skin areas that haven't been exposed to sun's rays. Do you know, skin cancer can be prevented by consuming some foods? Yes, and there are some out there:

1. Fatty fish - Including fatty fish in your diet can shield you against melanoma as they contain the beneficial nutrient Omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, these kinds of fatty acids are considered to be best for consumption as unlike saturated fats, they don't increase your risk for certain types of cancer. A study in the International Journal of Epidemiology reveals that individuals who consume a diet containing fish that is high in these healthy fats have low rates of this form of cancer.
2. Vegetables - This is another food option that is known to possess strong skin cancer-fighting properties. Dark leafy veggies like spinach, kale and broccoli can aid fighting against melanoma. A pigment found in tomatoes called lycopene has properties that guard you against cardiovascular diseases as well as cancers of all kinds. Similarly, the pigment carotenoids found in vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes, etc are known to protect against sunburn.
3. Herbs - Including herbs in your diet can help in replenishing the minerals and vitamins that get depleted due to the action of the sun. According to experts, about 80% of your body's vitamin levels see a reduction when you stay under the sun for 30-45 minutes. Basil, parsley, and rosemary are a few of the herbs that possess cancer-fighting qualities.
4. Flaxseeds - The unique qualities of flaxseed make it the best option against skin cancer. It contains both antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids, making it an all-around solution to fighting skin cancer.
