Dear lybrate-user, Kindly be more specific about the size, location and extent of cancer spread so that it will be possible to asses the stage of the disease process. And also give in detail about the RT and CT you had received. Cancer pain is definitely more debilitating and is difficult to keep in control. Over the counter pain killers can give temporary relief for certain period of time after which more potent analgesics at a shorter interval should be followed for pain palliation. You can consult me with all your previous medical reports so that I can help you better.

Vertigo can be a symptom of many problems. Yes a few diseases do reccur. You need to get treated as & when they occur. Vestibular rehabilitation exercises can help preventing certain problems upto some extent.

It may occur due to impacted ear wax or common cold. Simple ear examination will confirm the diagnosis and will help in its management.

My son has sinus, now he has this condition since childhood, he is now 21 years, he had developed cold on his trip to myanmar and is suffering from same since 5th dec 2015, yes he is careless, I had shown him to my family doctors but nothing much happened, so have shown him to ent on their recommendation as the condition has not improved much even after having antibiotics, he had gudcef, macpod, ambrodil syrup (simple one) given by family docs. Now I have shown him to ent the ent has given him med mahcef xl 200, recofast plus, tab betnelan and nosikind nasal spray, steam inhalation as many times as he can and then nosiking spray as many times as he can. His nose is completely blocked and because he is mouth breathing his throat is also dry, as per him whatever he is eating the taste comes in the nose, I am quite worried as this has been going on for last 4 months. I do want opinions. I have been out of station for a while and not very sure weather the medicines given by family docs who are md medicine have been taken by him or not, but the medicines given by ent yesterday I am personally monitoring it. He has just now taken only 2 doses. He drinks and smokes also. Please advise. I am in delhi dwarka, shall I continue with the same doc and medicines. xray have also been done. Doc says it is major sinus.

You must examine yourself with the doctor for the possibility of depression. Stress is definitely a factor but is it to do with depression? You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

You maybe suffering from a common cold or another viral fever. You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

Hello sir from my ear yellow bullgom type liquid is flow please suggest me effective medicine. Thank you.
Discharging ear: Discharge in ear is due to problem in external ear or Middle ear. Micro exam of ear will conclude that. Threre are two types of middle ear discharge Safe and Unsafe….If there is foul smelling discharge it is usually unsafe variety of Chronic suppurative otitis media. X ray masoid, Culture and sensitivity report and Ct scan if required . Mostly this type of pt require surgery. In safe variety it is simple perforation in ear and can be treated only with Antibiotics, Antihistaminics and ear drops. May require surgery if there is big hole in drum.

Yes, if it is since last 2 years, it will be mostly cured with surgery. But before that I want to hear about any running nose / nasal blockage problem or not. If yes, it has to be cured first before ear surgery.
