Dear lybrate-user, what you say it means he has skin cancer. The treatment depends upon the extent of tumor. Skin cancer really gets spread to other parts of the body with the result patient has no symptoms except local ones. If untreated for long time the disease may spread and give rise to different symptoms.

Surgery is must. Adequate surgical resection is most important for cancer control. Cytoreductine surgery with hipec is also an option.

Alcohol cause cancer?

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist
Ask Free Question
High rates of most cancers are seen in alcoholic people, especially those of the head, neck, esophagus, stomach, liver, colon, lungs, and breast tissue. An enhanced risk for breast malignancies might be seen with as few as two drinks per day, especially in women with family histories of this disease. The association with cancer probably reflects alcohol-related immune system suppression and the direct effects of ethanol on mucosal membranes. The heightened rates of malignant tumors in alcoholic people remain significant even when the possible effects of smoking and poor nutrition are considered, and this is the second leading cause of premature death in alcohol-dependent men and women.

All About Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is referred to as the cancer of the ovaries. The ovaries are a component of the female reproductive system. There are two ovaries located on either side of the uterus in a woman's body. Ovaries which are the organs responsible for producing egg cells also produce the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Ovarian cancer is a type of cancer which often goes undetected until it has spread all the way to the pelvis and the abdomen. However, it is also very difficult to treat the condition in its later stages which is why diagnosing ovarian cancer quickly is quintessential. Here is everything you need to know about ovarian cancer;

Symptoms
1. No symptoms at first
Usually, in its early stages ovarian cancer does not cause any symptoms.
2. Abnormal bloating
Bloating is when your abdomen swells due to excess fluid or gas inside. Abnormal bloating is more frequently associated with irritable bowel syndrome or even constipation is a common symptom of ovarian cancer.
3. Feeling full quickly
This is also an associated symptom which has often been mistaken for constipation or irritable bowel syndrome.
4. Weight loss
This is one of the more common signs of ovarian cancer.
5. Discomfort in the pelvis area
This symptom occurs towards the later stages of ovarian cancer after it has already spread.
6. Constipation
Constipation is a symptom of ovarian cancer as well.
7. Frequent urination
This is yet another symptom which is a sign of ovarian cancer.
The symptoms of ovarian cancer are often mistaken with that of irritable bowel syndrome and constipation.

Causes
As with other forms of cancer, it is still very unclear what exactly causes ovarian cancer.

Treatment
1. Surgery
Surgery most commonly involves removing large parts of the female reproductive system which includes the ovaries, the fallopian tubes, the uterus as well as the lymph nodes. The surgeon will also try and remove as many cancer cells as possible from the abdomen and pelvic areas.
2. Chemotherapy
Chemotherapy is usually done after surgery. It is usually performed so that the rest of the cancer cells are killed off. Chemotherapy drugs can be injected directly into the vein, abdominal cavity or sometimes even both.

Dear mam , breast cancer patients, post surgery may develop lymphodema or swelling of limb. One has to do regular exercises of arm as advised by physiotherapists to overcome this. Apart from this you may need to wear arm stockings for a long periods. Generally cancer hospitals do have lymphodema clinics to assist in exercises and if needed they can use lymphodema pumps mobilise the lymph and reduce swelling.

Hey I was a smoker for last 5 yrs, consuming 5 cigarettes per day. But now I have quit smoking since one month back. But I'm really scared of the disease called lungs cancer. Do I undergo any diagnosis for my suspicion? If yes then please tell me what kind of diagnosis needed to be done? And is there any exercise or artificial way through which tar can be pulled out from our lungs. If yes then do put light on those methods. Thank you.

I do not think antibiotics has anything to do with your symptoms of fatigue, weakness, etc. Although the disease itself may cause such symptoms. Pls maintain a proper diet and if needed you may take multivitamins.

Fibroadenoma clinical diagnosis is definitely not alarming. It may be supported by simple excisional surgery under local anesthesia followed by histopathological examination.

Hi, we need to see the lesion first and than discuss whether it can cause cancer or not. There is cancer called malignant melanoma related with it and it can occur in the mouth too. You should not worry. If you have the lesion on skin than visit a dermatologist and if in mouth, visit an oral medicine specialist. Whenever there is doubt, this lesion can be removed and biopsied. If your melanoplakia is absolutely fine, than we can leave it as it is. Regards.

It can be due to premenstrual tension. You may have retained water due to hormones, and I suggest get ultrasound of breast done to rule out any hidden swellings.

An enlarged prostate means the gland has grown bigger. Prostate enlargement happens to almost all men as they get older. Apart from age factor the prostate can also become enlarge due to infective reasons the enlarged prostate can also become normal with help of routine medicines and some diet counseling.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your friend's mother. Well, given to understand that its a last stage breast cancer, a cure may not be guaranteed at this juncture. Moreover, in advanced stage cancers, likelihood of complications developing is high and she would require palliative care support preferably in a medical / hospital setting. However, in the context that she has financial constraints, she may approach either 'Indian Cancer Society' or any other NGO or organizations (operating in the field of cancer care/ support), for help. At the same time, she can also try out integrative/ stand-alone treatment with alternative medicines which can be of help too in rendering palliative support, and treatment as would befit contextually. I declare no conflict of interest as I state the above-mentioned. Do take care and all the very best.
