Probably he is having recurrence. In case of recurrence after chemoradiotherapy, the treatment usually consists of chemotherapy. However targeted therapy can also be tried if he is unfit for chemotherapy.

Yes yoga and exercising are good ways to fight depression, but one may need the help of medicines if not improving. A lasik surgery is safe, but finer details should be consulted with an ophthalmologist. Yes, even cancer patients on chemotherapy should exercise as per tolerability.

6 months ago, I had a colon cancer surgery. After seeing the MSI report, doctor is advised me chemotherapy is not required. After my surgery I have a routine 3 months checkup, after my surgery I had 2 CEA tests where it showed 0.0 ng/ml. Today I took my CEA test, the third one after my surgery and showed 0.8 ng/ml. Could you please explain this? Thanks and regards. Ramanathan.

Dear lybrate-user, the history you are giving, it means you had very early stage of cancer which was completely resected out. Also there was no abdominal lymph node involvement. In such no chemotherapy is required but timely suprvision is needed, you should consider that you are cured from this trouble after surgery.

What are the basic symptoms of blood cancer and treatment and control of the blood cancer? If any person is suffering from blood cancer at that time what type of food is suitable for him?

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist, Mandsaur
Symptoms of Blood cancer The list of signs and symptoms mentioned in various sources for Blood cancer includes the 22 symptoms listed below: •Fatigue •Malaise •Breathlessness •Weakness •Excessive or easy bruising •Bleeding gums or frequent nose bleeds •Recurrent infections or fever •Sweating at night •Weight loss •Anorexia •Lymph node (gland) enlargement •Lumps or abdominal distension due to enlarged abdominal organs •Abdominal pain •Bone pain •Back pain •Bone fractures from minimal trauma •Confusion •Delirium •Headaches •Visual disturbance •Fluid retention •Decreased urination Blood Cancer Prevention Even after a lot of research scientists are not able to find ways to prevent most types of blood cancer. There are no absolute risk factors identified for this cancer but the key is to reduce the known ones. Also, doing some of these simple things will boost your immunity and can reduce the risk to some extent. •Avoid exposure to radiations If possible avoid exposure to high doses of radiation as during the certain treatment procedures patients are often exposed to high intensity radiation which increases their odds of succumbing to blood cancer. •Avoid exposure to chemicals Avoid getting exposed to certain harmful chemicals such as pesticides, as this may add up to increased risk of blood cancer. If your occupation forces you to stay in touch with these chemicals you must take proper safety measures. Exposure to benzene can also increase the chances of this cancer. •Avoid smoking or tobacco in every form Cigarette or tobacco consumption is a huge risk factor for not only cancers but several other diseases and should be completely avoided. By following few healthy lifestyle habits given below one can reduce the chances of getting affected with any type of cancer. •Regular exercise Regular exercise is essential to keep the body healthy. If you exercise daily for 30 minutes there are less chances of getting affected to the blood cancer, but still there is no evidence which supports it. •Eat healthy Healthy food consumption helps you to fight against diseases. Increasing consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables that contain fibers and a lot of nutrients reduces the risk of blood cancer to some exten •Don't ignore the symptoms Be watchful of your body and the signals it gives to you, especially when you are being exposed to one or few risk factor of blood cancer. Always consult your doctor when any kind of signs related to the cancer is seen. By having regular health checkups the blood cancer detection can be done at early stages. To live healthy & happy, one must keep a check on the body’s functioning by going for regular health checkups. This helps in assessing risk factors and diagnosing diseases at an early stage, which will result in effective treatment and better management of the condition. Blood cancer treatment & therapy options Treatment for blood cancer depends on the type of cancer, your age, how fast the cancer is progressing, where the cancer has spread and other factors. Some common blood cancer treatments include: •Stem cell transplantation: A stem cell transplant infuses healthy blood-forming stem cells into the body. Stem cells can be collected from the bone marrow, circulating (peripheral) blood and umbilical cord blood. •Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is the use of anticancer drugs designed to interfere with and halt the growth of cancer cells in the body. Chemotherapy for blood cancer sometimes consists of giving several drugs together in a set regimen. It may also be given before a stem cell transplant. •Radiation therapy: Radiation therapy may be used to destroy cancer cells or to relieve pain or discomfort. It may also be given before a stem cell transplant.

Problem is still continued after 6-7 months. Many types of medicines we have tried but no relief. What can we do? Is sonography harmful? Any solutions in ayurveda, home or allopathy?

Am having tumour like things in my nipple, am a male, I had it so far when I was matured, and now am facing the same problem. please help me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Male breast enlargement can be benign like in gynaecomastia, due to hormonal imbalance or malignant. You must see a surgeon to exactly rule out the cause. Sometimes there can be some anatomical variation in nipple, so it could also be natural but once you must show it to a doctor.
