I had giant cell tumor at the neck of proximal femur. Surgery is performed within bone graft. Then hip spica is applied for 3 months. But after 5 months of operation local recurrence has started. What is the cause of it? Is hip replacement approval for me? By which process local recurrence is stopped? From where we get best treatment for it?

It is a tough disease to control. It can recur in anybody. We are routinely doing Brachytherapy along with surgery to improve the results. Right now hip replacement is the surgery of choice but there is no guarantee that it will not recur again!

Lupus Disease

MD - Bio-Chemistry, MF Homeo (London), DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery), BHMS
Homeopath, Kolkata
Lupus Disease

This is a form of epithelial cancer and is a lose called eating cancer
Symptoms:- it first appears on the nose as a hard, dusky red sore and spreads in ulcerative form destroying the tissues till the bones are exposed. This affect women 10 time more than men. It usually appears in women between the age. Nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain may accompany. It is an ulcerative skin disease and requires a very long-term treatment. Sensitivity to sunlight is usually present. Lupus is caused by disruption of body waste disposal system from failure of special enzyme d nasil, which fails to remove wastes from the body.
Diagnostic tests
The disease is easily noticeable as it is outside the body on the the skin and biopsy is performed to confirm it.
If possible, the affected portion of the body is cut out.
I suggest homoeo doctor consult and homoeo treatment best.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
If it is soft, mobile, well defined it may be benign and can be observed. Otherwise you can get a needle biopsy done to know the nature of lump. There is no other option to get rid of lump than to excise it, if it is benign.

Diets High In Fat Increase Prostate Cancer Death Risk

Prostate cancer patients with an unhealthy, high-fat diet have a significantly higher risk of death from the disease, a new study suggests.
?There is currently very little evidence to counsel men living with prostate cancer on how they can modify their lifestyle to improve survival. Our results suggest that a heart-healthy diet may benefit these men by specifically reducing their chances of dying of prostate cancer,?
?Diets high in animal fat and low in fiber are associated with metabolic syndrome ? a collection of conditions including abdominal obesity, elevated blood sugar levels and high blood pressure,?said Dr. Michael Schwartz, a urologist at the Arthur Smith Institute for Urology in New Hyde Park, N.Y.
?It has been known for some time that this type of diet can elevate risk of diabetes, heart attack, stroke and various cancers,? he said.
Now, ?this study provides evidence for what many of us have for years been telling our patients with prostate cancer ? or patients who are interested in prostate cancer prevention,? Schwartz said.
He added that the anti-cancer effects of exercise might play a role as well, in that men in the study who ate healthier might also have exercised more.
The research was published online June 1 in the journal Cancer Prevention Research.

What are the symptoms of uterus cancer how can we detect it and remedies to control it by home remedies.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
Uterine cancers can present with irregular periods or bleeding following sexual intercourse. It may also present with persistent pain or unusual discharge from vagina. We can hope to detect it early by regular 3 yearly papa smears till the age of 65 years and routine ultrasound o the pelvis, so that it is more treatable then.

Dear sir. Enlargement of prostate is a age related change. It just like your skin becomes wrinkled, you loose teeth etc with age. Medicines do not change this course. Treatment is only required if it is obstructing your urine flow. So please don't worry and enjoy your life.

What are the symptoms of cancer and what to troubleshoot measures can be adopted?

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Hello lybrate-user. Your question is important but a lil vague. I would see to it tht I help you as much as possible through my answer. Cancer can cause symptoms because of two things. Either due the under functioning of an organ where the cancer has started (local) or due to under functioning of an organ where the cancer has spread (distant) or some generalized complaints. Local complaints depend on organ involved. For the organs which are beneath skin it usually presents as lump. Like breast cancer, thyroid cancer, cancers of soft tissue, etc. When the organ is deep seated it mainly interferes with its primary functions and hence the symptoms. For example, stomach cancer will cause indigestion, heaviness in upper abdomen, bloody vomitus or black stools. Cancer of intestine will cause change in bowel habits or bleeding in stools. Liver cancer may cause jaundice. Brain tumor can cause vomiting, fits. Headaches, etc. A complete picture is quite big and out of scope for this communication. Distant spread usually causes problems based on organ involved, similar to local. But possibility of multiple sites involved at the same time remains high. Bone spread causes excess unressolving pains or fractures. Spread to lung can cause cough and blood in sputum. And so on. Some general complaints are, weight loss, loss of appetite, fatigue and looking pale. Most, if not all, oral cancers are caused by tobacco chewing. Cancer of cervix, a part of uterus is caused by infection with human papilloma virus, which spreads with unprotected sexual contact. These two are preventable cancers. Rest of the cancers are not preventable per se. But if detected early can be taught well. Early detection solely depends on being aware of cancers common to one's age group and respect any unusual change in body habit which persists for long. So. Eat healthy, drink loads of healthy liquids, breathe loads of fresh air with the help of pranayam, exercise well and regular. Which will help keeping cancer a little away and at the same time, if unfortunately this unpredictable guest makes an appearance, a good health is important to sustain the treatments, helping one to get disease free as fast and as long as possible. Thanks.
