Hello sir, now a days we all fear about cancer. It's really unpleasant term. If chest pain or heart disease is going regularly then is it cause for cancer? Chest pain means cancer? If I don't smoke or drinks.

Bladder Cancer And Its Symptoms!

Bladder Cancer And Its Symptoms!

Bladder cancer can be caused by a variety of factors, which include genetic factors, inheritance, drugs, chemicals, environment related factors and smoking. In fact, smoking tobacco is one of the major causes of bladder cancer around the world. The chemicals present in tobacco can irritate the bladder lining which ultimately leads to bladder cancer. Besides smoking other important environmental factors might be chemotherapy, exposure to chemicals from newspaper, dye, leather, paints industries.

Symptoms of bladder cancer are as follows:

Most often it occurs in people more than 50 years of age. It can present in different ways, but common symptoms being :

  1. Painless hematuria - reddish or brownish colored urine with or without clots Increased frequency of urination Pain while passing urine .
  2. Difficulty in passing urine

Diagnosis:

The diagnosis requires a proper imaging workup including ultrasound, CT scan and urine examinations. Following the initial imaging, a biopsy is required to confirm the diagnosis and stage the disease. This is done by cystoscopy under anesthesia.

Treatment Options:

Treatments for bladder cancer.depend on the stage of cancer. Broadly bladder cancers can be categorised into Non-invasive and Invasive cancers.

  1. For non-invasive cancers: It requires recurrent cystoscopic surveillance and resection. For those with high risk of tumor recurrence or progression, intravesical chemotherapy or immunotherapy might be required.
  2. For invasive cancers the various treatment choices are:
    1. Surgery: For localised tumor which are amenable to resection perhaps surgery is the best possible treatment. This is a major undertaking where in whole of bladder along with accessory organs is removed. The surgeon may offer choices for reconstruction between neobladder (refashioning bladder with patient's gut) or ileal conduit (fashioning a stoma over which bag can be worn to collect urine). Following surgery a regular follow up is required and the prognosis is good.
    2. Chemotherapy: This modality is reserved for patient's where surgery is not possible or they have metastatic disease (disease spread to other body parts).In this method, medications are used to target and destroy cancer cells.
    3. Radiation Therapy: This might be and option for patient's that are not suitable for surgery. Radiation therapy uses gamma rays to destroy cancer cells in the body The key to good prognosis in bladder cancers is early detection timely intervention and good follow up. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.

What is the most common and economical method to detect any type of cancer? I have problem with my digestion system and have been suffering with piles. Sometimes, seriously suffering with bleeding with motion. Please suggest me.

Hi lybrate-user, commonly blood tests/ tumor markers, scans and biopsies are usually employed to diagnose cancer, with biopsy being the gold standard that clinches the diagnosis. The tests, as mentioned above, vary from cancer to cancer. However, your piles issue is mostly linked with your digestive issues / chronic constipation. For the time being, I would advise you to streamline your diet and lifestyle and stay relaxed. Focus mostly on leafy greens and fresh fibrous fruits including apples on a daily basis. Stay well hydrated, with at least 8 to 10 glasses of water on a daily basis. Avoid flesh foods completely for now. To get over stubborn constipation, if any, you can consume 1 tsp softovac powder duly mixed in a glass of warm drinking water, post dinner for the next 10 days. Consuming juice of bael fruit pulp also stabilizes digestion and cures constipation issues. Post toilet, you can sit in a bowl of cold water to which a tsp of dettol antimicrobial liquid has been added and mixed properly. Post that, use pilex ointment (as recommended) from himalaya. At the same time, get yourself clinically evaluated by a competent gi specialist who can examine your anus/ rectum with a proctoscope and evaluate the seriousness as appropriate. Take care and all the very best.

Ligamental injury could be due to some trauma like falling, unusual twisting, or slipping. It is not related to cancer.

Hello, I am suffering from Stage 3c locally advanced breast cancer. I have been put on neo adjuvant chemotherapy. That is chemotherapy followed by surgery. I have been told that this will help reduce the size of the tumour and lymph nodes thus helping surgical removal. I have talked to the surgeon and he has said that the tumour is in the middle of the breast and since the operation will remove the complete breast from the base -- it matters little whether the size reduces or not. Also he said that he will have no problem in removing the lymph nodes whether enlarged or reduced. This being the case shouldn't the mastectomy be done immediately? Keeping the tumour in vivo increases the chance of metastasis as every day goes by. Waiting for your reply please help me

Neoadjuvant chemo is given in LABC patients before surgery. Yes it is better tolerated by patient before surgery and it will take care of distant metastasis also. According to the recent studies in LABC patients better to give chemo before operation. As removal of the breast and conservation of breast depends on size of the tumor, stage of the disease and your breast size also. We will do same sitting or postmastectomy reconstruction for these kind of patients. You can do the consultation.
