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.

Well done by quitting cigarette. You need to go for any investigation for suspiciousness. You can have your normal exercises along with yoga. Don't get scared now a days cancers are curable.

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, the biopsy report is indicative of invasion to the lamina propria. But, can you doubly check with your doc if there is any invasion into the lymphatics too? so far as I know, such cases are treated with bcg vaccination, assuming there is no lymph node invasion. Additionally, given to understand that its a high grade carcinoma, there always is a high risk of metastasis despite a tur-bt surgery. Hence, the need to aggressively manage it, to the extent of even going for a full bladder cystectomy should it so demand, to help avert a futuristic metastasis and improve prognosis. Anyways, do clarify the above-mentioned through an expert second opinion with an oncologist specializing in urology cancers. From a dietary standpoint, try including more of fresh turmeric, carrots, tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, green tea (twice daily) etc all besides other leafy greens. Pomegranate juice & vitamin c (can try'amalaki') helps too in this condition. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best to you.

My mom was suffering from GLIOMA or lymphoma .we took a safe side and went for radio therapy before biopsy .radiotherapy is a treatment of lymphoma .but she is now totally unconscious after 5 radio therapies. We had radiotherapy till 1 st of this month. After radiotherapy her creatinine is 5 and urea is 173. After solving the nephro problems can we go for neuro surgery after biopsy?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, At the outset treating with radiotherapy without biopsy is totally wrong. May be she is unconscious because of high urea. If the nephro problem is settled she needs to be worked up for proper diagnosis after which proper treatment can be planned.

lybrate-user you need to consult a breast specialist. Usually breasts have some kind of lumpiness which should not be operated upon on the other hand clear cut page lumps need to be evaluated.

Hi I am a 27 year old male, few months back I suffered severe diarrohea and after that I notice a single small lump around the anus, after few days it started itching and burning, then I went to a gastro and he told me that I have external pile and given me an ointment to apply and said it wil b ok after few days. I got relief but the small lump is still there, and now its about 6 months with on and off burning. Please tel me how to get clear that lump.

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Urology, MBBS

Dear, after severe diarroea you ave deloped anal fissure due to forceful repeated bowel actions. External pile develops around it which is nothing but swollen skin. Fissure has gone in chronic stage hence it gives you ocassional burning and if you carefully notice it would reappear after passage of hard faeces. Here are few suggestions: 1. Drink plenty of fluids 2. Take high fiber and high residue diet like salads, green leafy veg. Fruits like papita, banana, mango etc. 3. Take emolient laxative like cremaffin syrup 1 teaspoonful at night 4. Isabgol powder 3-4 tsf in 300 ml of water at night 5. Leave sedentary lifestyle and start walking or exercises regularly 6. Apply zincal ointment in side anus with finger turn it around twaice day especially before bowel action. 7. Take siitz" s bath- sit in a tubful of warm water for 15-20 minutes. 8. Avoid taking pain killers if possible Dr. Kirtan mehta.

Prognosis of lung cancer depends a number of factors like stage at diagnosis, age, histopathological sub-type of the tumor, performance status of the patient, etc. If the tumor is metastatic or locally recurrent after chemotherapy, then targeted therapy can be useful with much reduced toxicity.

Colorectal cancer

Physiotherapist, Chennai

Colorectal cancer has some factors associated with it such as alcohol and red meat consumption. Westernisation of dietary patterns familial history and environmental pollution.

The underlying cause is consumption of items like deep fried food are difficult to digest and the toxins stay in the colon which later develop into cancer.

I am suffering for blood cancer what type of medicine and exercise I have to take and do.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Sir, you have to take chemotherapy under supervision of medical or hemato oncologist according to type of leukaemia. Blood cancer patients are immunocompromised so must take care of avoiding any kind of infection. No aggressive exercises should be done while on treatment however you can practice yoga, breathing exercises and mild work out,must not exhaust yourself as vigorous exercises can cause spontaneous bleed if platelets are low.

Gynaecological Cancer - Signs You Must Be Aware of!

Gynaecological Cancer - Signs You Must Be Aware of!

Gynecological cancer is any tumor that begins in a woman’s reproductive organs. Cancer is usually named after the part of the body where it begins. Gynecologic cancer starts in different areas within a woman’s pelvis, which is the territory beneath the stomach and in the middle of the hipbones. There are different types of gynecological cancers and these are as follows:

  • Cervical cancer starts in the cervix, which is the lower, narrower end of the uterus. The uterus is also called the womb.
  • Ovarian cancer starts in the ovaries, which are situated on each side of the uterus.
  • Uterine cancer starts in the uterus, the pear-shaped organ in a woman's pelvis where the child develops when a lady is pregnant.
  • Vaginal cancer starts in the vagina, which is the empty, tube-like channel between the base of the uterus and ends as the vaginal opening.
  • Vulvar cancer starts in the vulva, the external part of the female genital organs.

Signs and symptoms of the above-mentioned gynecologic cancers can be very vague; however, there are a few issues each lady needs to know about and look for. The following are some of the common symptoms of different gynecological cancer:

  1. Swollen leg (ordinarily happens in one leg and comes with pain or discharge)
  2. Irregular vaginal bleeding (particularly in a lady who has experienced menopause)
  3. Unexplained weight loss
  4. Consistent bladder weight or increased urination
  5. Loss of appetite, while always feeling full
  6. Pelvic or stomach pain
  7. Bloated stomach
  8. Consistent weakness
  9. Compelling, sudden onset bloating
  10. Trouble eating or feeling full rapidly
  11. Urinary indications (urge or recurrence)
  12. Vaginal draining or spotting after menopause
  13. New onset of heavy flow during periods or bleeding between two-period cycles
  14. A watery pink or white discharge from the vagina
  15. Two or more weeks of steady pain in the lower abdomen or pelvic region
  16. Pain during sex
  17. A red, pink or white bump that has a crude or wart-like surface
  18. A white area that feels unpleasant and rough
  19. Continuous itching
  20. Pain or a smoldering feeling while urinating
  21. Bleeding and discharge not connected with monthly cycle
  22. An open sore or ulcer that lasts over a month

A large portion of the symptoms connected with gynecologic cancers may occur due to other reasons every once in a while, which may make us ignore them. It is vital to be tuned into your body and pay consideration on any progressions. In case you see new side effects that are happening every day for more than a couple of weeks, this can be an indication of gynecological cancer. Try not to worry. Make sure to go for regular check-ups at your gynecologist. If you feel that the aforementioned symptoms are persistent, seek medical attention.

Dear Doctor, I'm suffering from lymph nodes in my throat since last 2 months. I have taken many antibiotics for 2 months. Now after Ct neck I am taking Augmentn. Is is sufficient r they curable?

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
Augmentin is a good antibiotic, but if I understand the problem you have recurrent acute tonsillitis. Pl consult your ent specialist for his opinion regarding surgical removal of your tonsils. They are not liely to be cancerous, but a proper examination is needed to rule that out.
