Just do routine investigation and never think of cancer first and leave it to your dr to diagnose it and let you know.

Cervical Cancer - 6 Ways To Prevent It!

Cervical Cancer - 6 Ways To Prevent It!

Cervical cancer (a malignant tumor of the cervix, the lowermost part of the uterus) is one of the most preventable types of cancer. Because of the Pap smear test, the number of cervical cancer cases has actually dropped over the past 20 years. However, many women still develop cervical cancer.

While some cases of cervical cancer cannot be prevented, there are many things a woman can do to reduce her risk of developing cervical cancer.

Reduce Your Risk of Cervical Cancer:

  1. Get a regular Pap smear. A Pap smear can be the greatest defense against cervical cancer. It can detect cervical changes early on, before they have a chance to turn into cancer.
  2. Limit the number of sexual partners you have. Studies have shown that women who have many sexual partners increase their risk for cervical cancer. You also increase your risk of developing HPV, which has been shown to lead to cervical cancer.
  3. Quit smoking or avoid secondhand smoke. Smoking cigarettes increases your risk of developing many cancers, including cervical cancer.
  4. If you are sexually active, use a condom. Having unprotected sex puts you at risk for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), which can increase your risk factor for developing cervical cancer.
  5. Follow up on abnormal Pap smears. If you have had an abnormal Pap smear, it is important to follow up with regular Pap smears or colposcopies, and whatever else your doctor has recommended for you. If you have been treated for cervical dysplasia, you still need to follow up with Pap smears or colposcopies.
  6. Get the HPV vaccine. If you are under 27, you may be eligible to receive the HPV vaccine, which prevents high risk strains of HPV in women. The vaccine is most effective when given to young women before they become sexually active.

Again, cervical cancer prevention should be a top priority for all women. Small lifestyle adjustments, combined with regular medical care, can go a long way in preventing cervical cancer. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My mother, aged 78, has been diagnosed with ca pancreas with liver and peritoneal metastasis. She has gross ascites, which is presumed to be due to the malignancy. She had developed jaundice about 2 months ago and underwent ERCP / MRCP with introduction of stent in the CBD, which was blocked due to a growth. Doctors have advised against chemotherapy and suggested a palliative approach with symptom management. Considering this, is there any way the quality of life can be improved by home care etc.

Dear lybrateuser, -to take care of your mother is very important for which you can employ a professional nurse, but she will require your support as well as other family members & friends support as managing such a patient all alone is a difficult task -start by making a list of the tasks & dividing the tasks among you, other members, friends, professional help -you should be proactive that means taking charge & planning to prevent last minute emergency -on your part communicate with her, check on her stock of medication, arrange appointments with the doctor, accompany her there -focus on her emotional, physical, spiritual needs -be positive, set a routine for her & encourage her to follow it as far as possible -keep her involved in activity in whatever way you can.

There is an entity called Carcinoma of unknown primary. But before labelling it, we need to do a PET CT, tumor markers, endoscopies, biopsy plus immunohistichemisty. If we are still not able to detect primary we need to treat with the most appropriate chemotherapy regimen.

If we can detect ovarian cancer at early stages, we have a cute rate of upto 95 percent once it recurs then we won't be able to cure it. We can only control the disease, prolong survival and improve quality of life. Please continue with platinum based Palliative chemotherapy.

My friend has lump in her breast. What should she do? And also advise what is the way to get out from this problem besides any surgeries.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Kanpur
Most probably its a benign lump if her age is less than 30 years. But she should get examined by a surgeon to confirm it. Also the only cure for lump is surgery. But indication for surgery depends upon its size and symptoms caused by it.
