Does it make sense to get a comprehensive check done for cancer markers once you reach the age of 50?

Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is a disease predominantly of age group beyond fifty years and most often by this age the natural immunity to fight cancer goes down and the likelihood of getting cancers increases. hence this the actual age where the comprehensive cancer screening becomes a must and tests like PSA, CEA , need to be done along with head and neck examination, chest x ray, ultrasound abdomen,stool and urine examination ,CA125 ,pap smear and mammography( in females,) should be done.

Unani Specialist, Moga
Hi dear -u should consult local staff for best hosp query in chennai -------------------------------------- cancers;(karkat rog)- are those dreaded tumors ----------------- which are capable of spreading to other body parts, either before or after surgery/ chemotherapy/radiology etc. Any time, immediately or even after 10-20 years. Types;-there may be some 20 types of classifications, ------ depending upon the shape/ organ/ structure-they appear. Ordinarily all these can be called as cancers, and in ayurveda--karkat rog-a common term. They may be blood cancer, bone cancer, skin cancer, breast cancer, ovary cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer etc. Etc. Blood cancer;;-- when cancer invades blood cells, it is called blood cancer. --------------------------------------- causes;-different types of cancers may be having ------- different types of multiple causes, not any one, in some cancers--viruses have been detected. Adultrated foods, allopathic salts, hormonal drugs, chemical salts, paints, alcohol, smoking, constipation, unhealthy water, foods, uncompatible foods, excessive sex-loss of semen, industrial hazards, polluted air, acidity, arthritis, stones, unknown reasons etc. Are other causes. Prevention;;-- you can prevent cancers by avoiding its possible causes. ------------------------------------- symptoms;--generally pain is main symptom but mainly --------- depend upon the organs involved. Other symptoms can be -bleeding, obstruction, ulceration, fever, weakness, loss of appetite, indigestion etc. Etc. Early detection;;- is generally difficult. But ---------------- lumps may be detected, palpable. Suddenly found when ever pain or some problem is there ---------------------------------------- problem with cancers;;--is that they spread to other ---------------------- parts immediately after surgery-when cut or any time after surgery, may be within-5-10 years or 20 yrs. Results;;- some 80% die within 1-2 years, 10 %--live -------- longer for 5-10 yrs, 10%-escape death. ---------------------------------------- treatment cancer;;-- you may need 4-6 doctors/experts to cure a cancer, at different stages. -step- 1- diagnosis;- generally patients are referred from small clinics or town hospitals to big city hospitals, for complete checkup and diagnostic procedures, bcz only such centres are equipped with big machines/eqipments etc. ------------------------------ -step -2-;-- supportive/symptomatic treatment;-- this is required at each stage and step everywhere. Patient may need blood, glucose, vitamins, fluids and life saving drugs, pain killers etc.- all the time. So the patient needs to be admitted in hospitals. You may need allopathic/ ayurvedic/ homeopathic/ naturopathic/ home remedies etc. ------------------------------------------ -step-3-;;--curative treatment;- -tibetan therapy--medicine -cancero - course is the best treatment available so for, with almost 100%--results. It is a newly entrant in the field of oral medical cancer therapy, and is available with very few tibetan experts only. Most of doctors are still unaware of its use. With no side effects, it can be used both as preventive as well as curative in all types of cancers/ tumors. Its 6 month course or so is sufficient to cure cancer of any type, at any stage, provided the patient is able to take medicines orally. It converts cancers into tumors and then cures. It can be used alone or in combination with other therapies, if cancer is in advanced stage. -its pack is available in 3 forms;- -cancero-th+, cancero-thu+, cancero-thua+ -cancero-th pack is available at rate of rs 5000/- pm. --so a combination of all therapies may be required for final positive results. ---------------------------------------- -step-4-surgery;- may be required where tissues have become hard and degenerated and in irreversible cases or in cavities. ----------------------------------- -step-5- radiology;- may also be of some helpful in advanced cases. ------------------------------------------ -step-6-chemotherapy;- I do not recommend it bcz of its multiple side effects. If you use cancero course-- then you need not require it.

Ayurvedic Treatment Of Prostate - प्रोस्टेट का आयुर्वेदिक उपचार

Ayurvedic Treatment Of Prostate - प्रोस्टेट का आयुर्वेदिक उपचार

लगभग 60 वर्ष की उम्र से ज्यादा के लोग ही प्रोस्टेट की समस्या से परेशान होते हैं. हलांकि लगभग तिस फीसदी लोग 30 या उससे ज्यादा के उम्र के भी हैं. प्रोस्टेट डिसऑर्डर की समस्या उत्पन्न होने का कारण प्रोस्टेट ग्लैंड का बढ़ जाना है. आपको बता दें कि प्रोस्टेट ग्लैंड को पुरुषों का दूसरा दिल भी कहा जाता है. हमारे शरीर में पौरुष ग्रंथि कई आवश्यक क्रियाओं को अंजाम देती है. इसके कुछ प्रमुख कामों में यूरिन के बहाव को कंट्रोल करना और प्रजनन के लिए सीमेन निर्मित करना है. प्रारंम्भ में ये ग्रंथि छोटी होती है लेकिन बढ़ते उम्र के साथ इसका बिकास होता जाता है. लेकिन कई बार अनावश्यक रूप से इसमें वृद्धि नुकसानदेह है, इस समस्या को बीपीएच कहा जाता है.

प्रोस्टेट में अवरोध का कारण
प्रोस्टेट ग्रंथि में ज्यादा वृद्धि हो जाने के कारण मूत्र उत्सर्जन में परेशानी आने लगती है. इसके आकार में वृद्धि के कारण ही मूत्र नलिका का मार्ग अवरुद्ध हो जा जाता है. इसकी वजह से पेशाब रुक जाता है. अभी तक प्रोस्टेट ग्रंथि में वृद्धि के कारणों का पता नहीं लगाया जा सका है. बढ़ती उम्र के साथ ही हमारे शरीर में होने वाला हार्मोनल परिवर्तन इसका एक संभावित कारण हो सकता है. आइए प्रोस्टेट के आयुर्वेदिक उपचार को जानें.

प्रोस्टेट ग्रंथि में गड़बड़ी के लक्षण
* पेशाब करने की आवृति में वृद्धि.
* पेशाब करने जाने पर धार के चालू होने में अनावश्यक विलम्ब होना.
* बहुत जोर से पेशाब का अहसास होना लेकिन पेशाब करने जानें पर बूंद-बूंद करके निकलना या पेशाब रुक-रुक के आना.
* मूत्र विसर्जन के पश्चात् मूत्राशय में कुछ मूत्र शेष रह जाना. इससे रोगाणुओं की उत्पति होती है.
* पेशाब करने  में पेशानी का अनुभव करना.
* अंडकोष में लगातार दर्द का अनुभव करते रहना.
* मूत्र पर नियंत्रण नहीं रख पाना.
* रात्री में बार-बार पेशाब की तलब लगना.
* पेशाब करते समय जलन का अनुभव करना.

प्रोस्टेट का आयुर्वेदिक उपचार

  • अलसी के बीज: प्रोस्टेट का उपचार करने के लिए आयुर्वेद काफी उपयोगी औषधियां उपलब्ध कराता है. अलसी का बीज प्रोस्टेट के उपचार में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है. इसके लिए अलसी के बीज को मिक्सी में पीसकर पाउडर बनायें. फिर प्रतिदिन इसे 20 ग्राम पानी के साथ लें.
  • सीताफल के बीज: सीताफल के बीज में कॉपर, मैग्नीशियम, मैंगनीज, आयरन, ट्रिप्टोफैन, फ़ॉस्फोरस, फाइटोस्टेरोल, प्रोटीन और आवश्यक फैटी एसिड आदि पोषक तत्व मौजूद होते हैं. इसके अलावा सीताफल के बीज को जिंक का भी स्त्रोत माना जाता है और इसमें बीटा-सिस्टेरॉल की भी मौजूदगी होती है जो कि टेस्टोस्टेरॉन को डिहाइडड्रोटेस्टेरॉन में परिवर्तित होने से रोकता है. प्रोस्टेट ग्रंथि के बढ़ने की संभावना को ख़त्म करने के लिए आप सीताफल के बीजों को कच्चा, भूनकर या फिर दुसरे बीजों के साथ मिश्रित करके भी ले सकते हैं. यही नहीं आप इन बीजों को सलाद, सूप,पोहा आदि में भी डालकर खा सकते हैं. इनमें बहुत सारे पोषक तत्वों की मौजूदगी होती है.
  • सोयाबीन: प्रोस्टेट से छुटकारा दिलाने में सोयाबीन भी महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है. सोयाबीन की सहायता से आप प्रोस्टेट का उपचार कर सकते हैं. प्रोस्टेट का उपचार सोयाबीन से करने के लिए आपको रोजाना सोयाबीन खाना होगा. ऐसा करने से आपका टेटोस्टरोन के स्तर में कमी आती है.
  • पानी के इस्तेमाल से: अपने दैनिक जीवन में हम सभी पानी पीते ही हैं. लेकिन कई लोग इसे ज्यादा महत्त्व नहीं देते हैं और वो उचित अंतराल या उचित मात्रा में पानी नहीं पीते हैं. ऐसा करने से आपके शरीर में कई अनियमिताएं आने लागती हैं. प्रोस्टेट की परेशानी के दौरान आपको नियमित रूप से पानी पीना लाभ पहुंचाता है.
  • चर्बीयुक्त और वसायुक्त भोजन का परहेज करें: जब भी आपको प्रोस्टेट की समस्या हो तो आपको चर्बीयुक्त और वसायुक्त भोजन का परहेज करें. आप देखेंगे कि चर्बीयुक्त और वसायुक्त भोजन का परहेज करने से प्रोस्टेट डिसऑर्डर में काफी लाभ मिलता है.
  • टमाटर नींबू आदि का खूब इस्तेमाल करें: टमाटर, नींबू आदि में विटामिन सी की प्रचुरता होती है. प्रोस्टेट डिसऑर्डर के दौरान आपको विटामिन सी की पर्याप्त मात्रा लेनी चाहिए. इसलिए इस दौरान विटामिन सी की प्रचुरता वाले खाद्य पादार्थों का सेवन करना चाहिए.

My brother has been diagnose of cancer in the asephagus low 1/3. what should we do? - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist, Hyderabad
The first thing needed is to stage the patient. This needs a CT scan of Chest and abdomen. If it is a localised disease the standard treatment will be Pre-operative Radiation therapy followed by surgery or Radical Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy depending on the fitness of the patient and the type of cancer. If it is metastatic, spread to other organs, the treatment would be palliative chemotherapy. Consult an oncologist (surgical/radiation) to decide the best course for the patient

Lung Cancer - Symptoms At Early & Later Stages!

Pulmonologist, Delhi
Lung Cancer - Symptoms At Early & Later Stages!

Lungs are the most important organ of our body that has the responsibility of taking in the oxygen and releasing out carbon dioxide. When cancer develops in it, the entire body gets imbalanced. Lung cancer leads to more death than any other type of cancer, which is why identifying the symptoms and knowing the causes are instrumental in obtaining a timely diagnosis as well as in prevention of this disease.

Symptoms of Lung Cancer

In the early stages:

  1. Persistent coughing
  2. Chest pain
  3. Bleeding
  4. Fatigue
  5. Loss of appetite
  6. Sudden weight loss
  7. Headaches
  8. Coughing up blood

In the later stages:

  1. Bone pain
  2. Joint pain
  3. Facial paralysis
  4. Neck swelling
  5. Blood clotting
  6. Weakness
  7. Sever chest pain

Causes of Lung Cancer

  1. Smoking: People who smoke are more prone to lung cancer. With the increase in the number of cigarettes you smoke, your chances of getting lung cancer increase too. People who don't smoke but are surrounded by the smokers also have high chances of being affected by this form of cancer.
  2. Exposure to Asbestos: Asbestos is a group of mineral, which is present naturally in the environment. Lung cancer can occur due to the inhalation and ingestion of asbestos fibers.
  3. Exposure to Ranon Gas: Ranon is a radioactive gas, which is formed naturally on decaying of radioactive elements. It is found in low levels in the air that we breathe and the water that we drink. Consumption of air and water having this gas leads to lung cancer.
  4. High Levels of Air Pollution: Presence of high levels of dust particles and pollutants in the air that we breathe can cause lung cancer. 1-2% of lung cancer is caused because of it.
  5. High Levels of Arsenic in Drinking Water: Consuming water with arsenic content is harmful as it directly affects the lungs and when the arsenic content is too high, it may lead to lung cancer.
  6. Exposure to Chemicals: Exposure to certain chemicals like uranium, coal products, gasoline, diesel exhaust and mustard gas can also cause lung cancer.
  7. Family History of Lung Cancer: Chances of getting lung cancer increase if your parents, child or siblings are already prone to lung cancer.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Know Everything About Pap Smear Test!

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Know Everything About Pap Smear Test!

A Pap Smear is a screening test done to to test for occurrence of uterine cancer. Carried out in a quick and simple way to extract a sample, the sample is collected from the cervix area of a woman during a pelvic exam. The examination of the sample takes place under a microscope thereafter to find abnormalities that can point towards cancer and pre cancer changes.

There are many reasons why women should get a pap smear screening done:

  1. Women who are HIV positive should get this test done regularly so as to detect any anomalies in the cervix. This condition usually comes with higher risk of infections and cancer, which is why regular screening is required.
  2. Age is also another factor and women over the age of 30 should go through an annual screening on a compulsory basis. This is also true for women who have been through pregnancy and childbirth.

Preparing for a pap smear: To prepare for a pap smear test, you need to ensure that you are not menstruating at the time. Also, you may want to avoid sexual activity just before the test so as to get the most accurate readings. During the process, remember to stay calm and relax your body physically.

Procedure: The pap smear procedure is a quick one that might be only slightly uncomfortable. This test is usually carried out on the examination table at the gynecologist's clinic. The legs will need to be spread and placed in stirrups. The doctor will insert a speculum to hold open the vaginal opening so that the spatula can be inserted easily to take a sample from the area. This sample of the cells will be tested in a lab after due preservation.

Test Results: The test results can either be normal or abnormal. An abnormal result does not point at the presence of cancer. Rather it can simply mean that abnormal cells exist in the cervix. The doctor may ask you to go through these tests and screening more frequently so as to study the anomalies in a more detailed manner. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.
