Dear , the most common problem a 29 year old can have is prostatitis that is an infection. I assume you have consulted a doctor as you say that you have a problem with your prostate which cannot be known unless you do per rectal examination, ultrasound and urine examination. Most commonly it is secondarily effected from a urinary tract infection, and some sexually transmitted diseases. Treatment would primarily include antibiotics and analgesics. Healthy diet, good hygiene and protection during sexual exposure are important to avoid recurrences. Regards

I was a Prostate Cancer Patient stage 4, metastatized to Lymph Nodes and PSA 560. I underwent Orchidectomy Surgery and PSA steadily came down to 8 in 3 Months, 3 in 6 months, 2. in 9 months and 1.2 in ONE YEAR. Am I Cancer FREE or Cancer Cured or Cancer Controlled? What Further should I do to Prevent it from Recurrence?

MD - Radiothrapy
Oncologist, Gurgaon
No , if you have underwent orchidectomy only then its incomplete treatment in your case . Also i would like to know what was the Gleason score and was there any bone scan abnormality. You should start taking Tab Bicalutamide 50 mg OD and also get a PSMA scan done.

Ayurveda and Bladder Cancer

Ayurveda and Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is the result of the growth of cancerous cells inside the bladder. Bladder cancer is mainly of four types:

  1. Urothelial carcinoma: In this type of bladder cancer, the tumours may be limited to the bladder or spread from the urothelial to the deeper layers in the bladder. The urothelial is the epithelium lining in the renal pelvis, ureters, urethra and bladder.
  2. Squamous cell carcinoma: Squamous cells are flat, thin cells that form after a prolonged infection in the bladder. The cancer starts from these cells.
  3. Adenocarcinoma: Glandular cells in the bladder produce and discharge mucus. This type of cancer begins from the glandular cells.
  4. Superficial bladder cancer: If the cancer is limited to the bladder lining, then it is known as superficial bladder cancer. The cancer might spread to the bladder muscle wall, or spread to the lymph nodes and organs close to it.

It is important note that, if bladder cancer is detected early, then it can be cured most of the times.

Who is at a risk of acquiring bladder cancer?
Those who smoke or have a history of bladder cancer in the family or are exposed for to industrial chemicals for long durations are at an increased risk of bladder cancer.

The symptoms of bladder cancer include:

Bladder cancer treatment by conventional medication can be complemented by Ayurveda; especially, with the Panchakarma therapy, which detoxifies the body. Detoxification can be done by:

  • Snehana therapy that is oil massage
  • Swedana that is steaming therapy 
  • Vamana that is by urging vomiting
  • Virechana that is by purging
  • Basti is the enema medication
  • Nasya or through nasal medication
  • Raktamokshana Therapy 

Along with the above mentioned therapies, consuming medicated juices, which contain fruits and vegetables is good for the body. Antioxidant Ayurvedic medicines are also highly beneficial. Practicing yoga, sound therapy, pranayama, acupressure and acupuncture can help in the long run.

Sometimes, traditional cancer medication can rob the body of its strength once the symptoms are cured. Rasayan Chikitsa can help the body regain its strength. Rasayan Chikitsa improves the metabolism, memory, longevity, hair and complexion. It brings back the vigour that was lost. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized ayurveda and ask a free question.

I am 62 years old. I have been applying hair dye for long time. Is it harmful? People say it leads to cancer! Pl help.
Hi Mr. lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking guidance. As far as I understand, not all dyes will potentially cause cancer. But some, dyes especially the semi-permanent and permanent ones, may have certain chemicals that are carcinogenic. One needs to consciously reduce exposure to such dyes to be on a safer side. You may as well choose a suitable natural hair dye instead. I declare no conflict of interest while I state the above-mentioned. Hope this clarifies. Do take care.

Hello Sir, You can try medication for 3-6 months and see if it helps with your symptoms. Your urologist can prescribe you the medication. A particular tablet which the urologist may prescribe needs to be taken for atleast 6 months before you can see some benefit. Hence the time period of 6 months that I mentioned above. Another type of tablet cans how improvement in 3 months. If after 6-9 months your symptoms have not improved then you can consider surgery. Hope this helps you Thank you.

There are so many reasons for cancer What are the main reasons of spreading of cancer virus to others?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer can not be spread from one individual to other, it is not a transmissible disease. If there are many people in family suffering from cancer then there could be genetic link or if many People are suffering from cancer in locality then there could be common risk factor like some industry close by, soil source of water may be polluted or some common exposure to carcinogens.

Dear, you have to be gentle while making love. Be sure at any time she did not contact infection by mishandling or sucking the nipple. Inflamed breast gives pain on touching or fondling. If breast is very tender on touch she may need a course of antibiotics, after you have seen the doctor.
