Breast reduction is a proven method by which large breasts can be reduced and made shaplier. Neck and back pain reduction is seen as that much weight is removed and the neck, shoulder and back need not carry them.

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.

Cancer Causes Certain genes control the life cycle – the growth, function, division, and death -- of a cell. When these genes are damaged, the balance between normal cell growth and death is lost. Cancer occurs due to DNA damage and out-of-control cell growth. The following is a partial list of factors known to damage DNA and increase the risk of cancer: Genetic mutations (for example, BRCA1 and BRCA2) Environmental exposure to UV radiation, air pollution Bacterial (H. pylori) and viral infections (Epstein-Barr, HPV, hepatitis B and C) Lifestyle choices (poor diet, inactivity, obesity, heavy alcohol use, smoking cigarettes and tobacco use, exposure to chemicals and toxins) Treatment with chemotherapy, radiation, or immunosuppressive drugs Cancer Treatment Cancer treatment is highly variable depending on the type and stage of a cancer as well as the overall health of the patient. The most common treatments for cancer are surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Other treatments include targeted/biological therapies, hematopoietic stem cell transplants, angiogenesis inhibitors, cryosurgery, and photodynamic therapy. Every cancer treatment has potential risks, benefits, and side effects. The patient and his or her care team, which may include an internist or other specialist, surgeon, oncologist, radiation oncologist, and others, will help determine the best and most appropriate course of treatment.

Dear sir,biopsy is important,you must get it .line of treatment is primarily hormonal therapy and if severe pain in Bones then radiation therapy with palliative intent maybe given esp at hip joint as it's a weight bearing area. Hormonal therapy may be removing testicles or injection s or some oral tablet. Inj. Zolendronic acid should also be given on monthly basis.

Proatatic hyperplasia is age related disease. As one cant stop whitening of hair as age grows, can't stop prostatic enlargement. Once it give rise to treatment, then only needed to consult a surgeon/ urosurgeon for conservative or operative management.

I am not sure of its role, maybe some homeopathy doctors will help. Some immunomodulators will help in enhancing immunity to fight with the disease.

There is no single test to completely eliminate the risk of cancer. However there are a few tests which depending on the patient profile, may be used suitably to detect common cancers early, so that they can be treated more effectively. There is no universal solution and varies from person to person.

Cervical Cancer - Causes and Testing for Diagnosis

What causes cervical Cancer?
Genital Human papilloma virus (HPV) is a very common virus in both men and women that can lead to the development of genital warts, abnormal cervical cells or cervical cancer.
This virus can cause normal cells on your cervix to turn abnormal. Over many years, abnormal cells can turn into cancer if they are not found and treated by your doctor. It can take 10 to 15 years (or more) for cells to change from normal to abnormal, and then into cancer. Abnormal cells are sometimes called 'pre cancer ' because they are not normal, but they are not yet cancer.
You cannot see or feel HPV or these cell changes on your cervix. Screening tests help us to look for these changes or for abnormal cells
How is HPV spread?
HPV is transmitted during genital skin to-skin sexual contact. This includes vaginal or anal sex and possibly oral sex.A person can get HPV even if years have passed since he or she had sex. They will never know it because HPV usually has no signs and symptoms.
In most cases, HPV goes away within two years, without causing any health problems. It is thought that the immune system fights off HPV infection naturally
What screening tests exist for HPV- related diseases?
Cervical Cancer: Cervical cancer can be detected with routine Cervical cancer screening (Pap test) and follow-up of abnormal results. The Pap test can find abnormal cells on the cervix so that they can be removed before cancer develops. Abnormal cells often become normal over time, but can sometimes turn into cancer. These cells can usually be treated, depending on their severity and on the woman's age, past medical history, and other test results.
An HPV DNA test, which can find certain HPV types on a woman's cervix, may also be used with a Pap test in certain cases (called co-testing). The HPV-DNA test is done to determine if you are infected with one of the high-risk types or if your doctor finds certain type of abnormal Pap test result.
Even women who were vaccinated when they were younger need regular cervical cancer screening because the vaccines do not protect against all cervical cancer strains.
Is there a treatment for HPV or related problems?
HPV vaccination could prevent most cancers and other diseases caused by HPV. There is no treatment for the virus itself, but there are treatments for the problems that HPV can cause:
Visible genital warts may remain the same, grow more in number, or go away on their own. The warts can be treated when they appear.
Abnormal cervical cells (found on a Pap test) often become normal over time, but they can sometimes turn into cancer. If they remain abnormal, these cells can usually be treated to prevent cervical cancer from developing. This may depend on the severity of the cell changes, the woman's age , past medical history, and other test results. It is critical to follow up with testing and treatment, as recommended by a doctor.
Post detection of ovarian cancer the doctors , depending on your cancer stage can recommend the treatment more- surgery, medical treatment, radiation therapy or chemotherapy.

My age is 23 years. Height is 6 ft. Weight 76 kg. What are the blood test to detect pituitary cancer.

Diploma in Radio Therapy, MBBS
Oncologist
Ask Free Question
Pituitary cancer is a systemic disease. That means the manifestation of the disease is more pronounced in the body than the actual cancer symptoms. There is no direct blood test to diagnose Pituitary cancer. A image guided biopsy is the one which can give a diagnosis. Pituitary gland being the main controller of hormones in the body, there is abnormal distribution of hormones. Hormonal studies for Growth hormone, Thyroid stimulating hormones and 24 hrs Urine Cortisol level can be assessed to know the status of hormone production from the Pituitary gland. You can consult me if you want to know more details.
