Uterine Cancer - Causes, Diagnosis and Treatment

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Chennai
Uterine Cancer - Causes, Diagnosis and Treatment

Uterine cancer is also known as endometrial cancer. It is a cancer which begins in the lining of the uterus. The uterus is the part of a woman's body where the fetus develops. Uterine cancer is one of those rare cancers in India, which can be diagnosed in its early stages. This is because excessive vaginal bleeding occurs, thus making it a very serious and an apparent symptom. It is also one of the few forms of cancer which can be cured as removing the uterus is often more than enough to cure the patient of uterine cancer.

Here are the causes, diagnosis and treatment of uterine cancer:

Causes

The exact cause of uterine cancer is not yet known, however, there is a theory on what causes uterine cancer. Hormones in a woman's body have been thought to increase the chances of getting uterine cancer. This is because it has long been thought that having high levels of estrogen is the cause of uterine cancer. Increased estrogen thickens the endometrium and thus, increases the likelihood of uterine cancer.

Diagnosis

There are several tests used to diagnose whether you have uterine cancer including:

1. Pelvic exam: This is an examination in which the vagina, bladder, rectum and uterus are scanned for lumps. If they are found, it might be due to uterine cancer.
2. Pap test: A pap test is a special test designed to scan for uterine cancer.
3. Transvaginal ultrasound: A transvaginal ultrasound uses high-intensity sound waves so that pictures of the uterus can be taken.
4. Biopsy: During a biopsy, the doctor will remove tissue from the endometrium and it will then be analyzed for cancerous growths.

Treatment

1. Surgery: This is the most common treatment as it removes the entire uterus and prevents the spreading of the cancer.
2. Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy involves giving drugs which kill cancerous cells. They are given through either an intravenous line or even in pill form.
3. Hormone therapy: This is a therapy in which either progesterone levels are increased or estrogen levels are decreased.
4. Radiation therapy: In this treatment, high energy laser beams are used to destroy cancerous cells.

I'm suffering from Vertigo. When I wake up or going to sleep it starts and it is for very short period or moment. I m taking homeopathic treatment.what can be done for this condition?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

A modified epley maneuver is a type of physical therapy often prescribed that involves head and body movements done while sitting on a bed. Traditionally, it is performed in a doctor or physical therapist's office, but it may also be prescribed to do at home. Once a patient has received proper instruction, this maneuver can resolve symptoms within a week for many patients. Vitamin d supplementation may be beneficial for patients diagnosed with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. Your doctor can check to see if you have a vitamin d deficiency. Herbal remedies such as ginger root, ginkgo biloba, and coriander may help reduce vertigo symptoms in some people. Acupuncture may be helpful in resolving symptoms of some types of vertigo.

Home Remedies For Vomiting




Common Causes of Vomiting

• Food poisoning
• Gastroenteritis
• Spinning too fast on a ride
• Surgery
• Pregnancy


Home Remedies for Vomiting

Tip 1

Heat 2 cardamoms on a dry saucepan. Powder them and add a tablespoon of honey and take frequently.

Tip 2

Try mint tea to get relief from vomiting. Add mint leaves in boiling water. Strain the leaves and serve your tea.

Tip 3

Lemon juice is an effective home treatment for vomiting. Make a mixture of water, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, ½ teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of baking soda, stir all these ingredients well and drink it. This will immediately give relief from vomiting.

Tip 4

Ginger is another ingredient to cure the problem of vomiting. Ginger is good for your digestive system and helps to block unnecessary secretion inside the stomach that can cause vomiting. So when having pre-signs of vomiting, just have some ginger tea with a little sugar.

Tip 5

If you have just finished a bout of vomiting the smell of vomit and the after taste in your mouth can cause more vomiting. In such cases, make a mixture of 1 teaspoon of vinegar with ½ a cup of water. Mix it well and rinse your mouth with this mixture properly. This will help freshen up your breath.

Tip 6

Rice water helps to reduce vomiting, especially when it is caused by gastritis. Boil a cup of white rice in 2 cups of water, strain and drink the rice water.

Tip 7

The antiseptic and anesthetic properties of cloves help in digestion and can also cure vomiting. You can chew some raw cloves or you can add it to tea and drink. Another way to use cloves to stop vomiting is by swallowing a mixture of powdered fried cloves and honey.

Tip 8

The medicinal properties of aniseeds can cure vomiting. You can simply chew aniseed for quick relief. You can also sprinkle roasted aniseed on mild vegetables like carrots or pumpkin

I am 31year male. I have urinal problem. I can not bear urine for more than one minute. I think it is oab.
Behavioral interventions are the first choice in helping manage an overactive bladder. They're often effective, and they carry no side effects. Behavioral interventions may include: Pelvic floor muscle exercises. Kegel exercises strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and urinary sphincter. These strengthened muscles can help you stop the bladder's involuntary contractions. Your doctor or a physical therapist can help you learn how to do Kegel exercises correctly. It may take as long as six to eight weeks before you notice a difference in your symptoms. Healthy weight. If you're overweight, losing weight may ease your symptoms. Weight loss may help if you also have stress urinary incontinence. Fluid consumption. Your doctor may recommend that you cap the fluids you consume at a certain amount and may suggest appropriate times during which to consume them. Double voiding. To help empty your bladder more completely, you wait a few minutes after urinating and then try again to empty your bladder again. Scheduled toilet trips. Setting a schedule for toileting — for example, every two to four hours — gets you on track to urinate at the same times every day rather than waiting until you feel the urge to urinate.
