The pain may be due to inflammation of the lymph nodes. In case you are having associated fever, do try to get a ENT check up for possibility of Acute Tonsillitis. If there is obvious swelling in the area you mention consider getting a opinion from a surgeon if biopsy is indicated. Let me know if you need more details.

My mom 45 years old, right neck level 3 recurrence of suggestive squamous cell carcinoma well differentiated perineal invasion identified which case known as tongue cancer op/rt/ct Please tell me what is the current situation of my mom health because now doctor said we gave all treatment now nothing possible. But she had surgery last September and rt/ct. And again surgery done this may after that we not taken any treatment doctor given only methotrexate chemo Drug's because they said for the first time only she received all treatment until 2 years we can't suppose to give any palliative chemo/DR. Sir is this the same related to tongue cancer or this is new cells like skin cancer because now we have only options trying some ayurvedic medicine so if we know exactly about this that we can get suitable medicine.

A recurrent head and neck cancer after a definitive surgery and RT and CT, carry a poor prognosis and disease free survival is definitely less. Your doctor might have advised you the same as well. The drug you have mentioned, is known to reduce the extent of skin involvement and has shown good local control in several head an neck cancer. So follow whatever advice you have received from the treating physician. The effect of alternative medicines can neither be denied nor commented upon since the effect of it varies from individual to individual and it can't be explained by practitioners of Modern medicine. Wish you all the best.

My wife is a cancer patient (osteosarcoma) her chemotherapy is completed on 25thFebruary 2016 and her period resume on June 23, 2016 and in next month is on 18th July, 2016. We have unprotected sex after 26th day is there any chances of getting pregnant or is it safe for her. please reply soon.

Kindly perform a Pregnancy test with the Pregnancy kit that is available at any nearest medical shop. The safe period for avoiding pregnancy is usually on the Day 1 to 7 at the start of cycle and the last 4-6 days in a normal 26 to 32 days cycle. You might still be on the safe period, but pregnancy test will confirm the same. Since she is under chemotherapy, she might have difficulties to carry out a normal pregnancy. It is better to give her at least 6 months gap from the last cycle of chemo therapy before getting pregnant. Do perform the test at the earliest.

Any symptom in Breast, such as swelling, redness and especially pain shouldn't be taken lightly. I would suggest you to get a Mammogram of both the breasts and get a routine blood test (Hemoglobin, Total count, Differential Count), ultrasound of the abdomen and a chest x ray. Also consult a Gynecologist with your reports. In case of any doubts with your reports you can consult me. Do not delay your mammogram anymore.

Dear lybrate-user, Kindly let me know if your father is under any treatment. If he is under any chemo therapy treatment he will be experiencing weakness and also vomiting with reduced appetite. Kindly provide him natural health supplements like fresh fruit juices and frequent meals to give him strength for his usual activities. Vitamin supplements and protein supplements are also advisable.

Dear lybrate-user, This looks like some kind of Upper respiratory tract infection, and I think it not something to worry about. In case the symptoms are still persisting after you completed a course of antibiotics. Do consult a ENT specialist and get a Laryngoscopy test done. In case of suspicious lesion, the doctor might take a biopsy and we can confirm the diagnosis.

My age is 23 years. Height is 6 ft. Weight 76 kg. What are the blood test to detect pituitary cancer.

Diploma in Radio Therapy, MBBS
Oncologist, Chennai
Pituitary cancer is a systemic disease. That means the manifestation of the disease is more pronounced in the body than the actual cancer symptoms. There is no direct blood test to diagnose Pituitary cancer. A image guided biopsy is the one which can give a diagnosis. Pituitary gland being the main controller of hormones in the body, there is abnormal distribution of hormones. Hormonal studies for Growth hormone, Thyroid stimulating hormones and 24 hrs Urine Cortisol level can be assessed to know the status of hormone production from the Pituitary gland. You can consult me if you want to know more details.

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.

Swollen lymph nodes are common. It might occur in the presence of infections. It usually resolves on its own. In case of associated fever or weakness, short course antibiotics are recommended.
