Such cysts are usually of tuberculous in nature. That can be confirmed after biopsy only. Tuberculosis can be treated medically. If it is non-tuberculous, then surgery is must.

How to diagnose kidney cancer? By which tests I will come to know that I have kidney cancer or not?

DNB, MBBS

Dear sir, renal cancers are diagnosis radiologically. You can get a ct scan done to look for any deformity in kidney. Histopathologically only after surgery we can categorise the type and extent.

Hi lybrate-user I appreciate you seeking help for your father. Well, for severe pain, he may apply a pain relieving gel, along with other analgesics as advised by his head & neck oncologist. Alternatively, he may also gargle with a warm solution of chamomile tea, lemon and honey, three times daily. He can also try warm saline gargling, with a pinch of fresh turmeric/ salt added to warm water. Additionally, he can apply a paste made of a mixture of 1 gm of fresh turmeric powder and 1 gm of fresh tulsi powder, 4 to 5 times daily on his tongue and also the inner linings (of cheek). Take care to not eat or drink anything for the next 15 minutes post applying the paste on the oral mucosa. Again, from a dietary standpoint, it is important that he keeps his diet and lifestyle streamlined, he may take liquid/ semi-solid foods presently for convenience. Freshly prepared tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, helps. Do avoid excessively hot/ cold drinks and foods though. Post every meal, lightly brush with either neem tooth paste or a herbal toothpaste from Himalaya Herbals. Hope this helps. Do take care and I wish your father all the very best. Sincerely,

What is symptoms of cancer and how to cleared it by using medicines? What type of care should be taken.

MBBS, DNB ( Radiation Oncology)
Oncologist, Mumbai
Symptoms of cancer can be varied. It depends on type of cancer and which part is affected. It is a very question to reply specifically. Many cancers are hereditary i. E with a strong family history, while many are due to mutations. A healthy lifestyle with healthy diet, no smoking/alcohol and moderate exercise is the key to healthy life but unfortunately many people develop cancers due to other causes too. I hope that helps!

Ms. lybrate-user. Only itching can't tell you about cancer of breast it can be simple some allergic manifestation of skin which can be sort out with treatment. If there is any history of breast cancer in the family then get her examined and get her mammography done. If every thing is normal then forget it.

Prostatitis treatments vary depending on the underlying cause. They can include: Antibiotics. This is the most commonly prescribed treatment for prostatitis. Your doctor will base the choice of medication on the type of bacteria that may be causing your infection. If you have severe symptoms, you may need intravenous (IV) antibiotics. You'll likely need to take oral antibiotics for four to six weeks but may need longer treatment for chronic or recurring prostatitis. Alpha blockers. These medications help relax the bladder neck and the muscle fibers where your prostate joins your bladder. This treatment may lessen symptoms, such as painful urination. Anti-inflammatory agents. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may make you more comfortable. Prostate massage. This is done by your physician using a lubricated, gloved finger — a procedure similar to a digital rectal exam. It may provide some symptom relief, but doctors disagree about how effective it is. Other treatments. Other potential treatments for prostatitis are being studied. These treatments include heat therapy with a microwave device and drugs based on certain plant extracts

If the itching is in the web of fingers it may be scabies also but scabies is not only restricted to fingers and at later stage scabies is in the form of papules with infected yellow tips containing pus which you have not told so this disease is dileted. Now come to eczamatous dermatitis or allergic dermatitis . Whatever the disease may be usually diagnosis of skin disease cannot be made out without visualizing the site. You please take Tab Roxid 150 mg 2 tab daily empty stomach before breakfast for10 days. Take Tab Phenargan 25 mg + Tab Betnesol Twice daily for10 days. Apply Terbinaforce Plus locally on affected area . After 10days let me know response for further advice on Lybrate paid consultation service.

Question is for breast cancer stage 3 and grade 3 Why is cancer patient survival rate is measured in relative of 5 years. If the patient is diagnoses with cancer and he go for the treatment like chemotherapy surgery and radiation and he successfully cured the cancer then why he can not survive for 10 years, is it is because of sideeffect of medicines chemo surgery radiation etc.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, even stage 3 cancer properly treated will give a 50 to 65% of 5 year survival and even more if the patient is in good general condition. I will also suggest immunotherapy after completed treatment which will perhaps give complete cure.

My grandmother is suffering from breast cancer. Is there is medicine without chemo?

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Hello. Whether a patient receives chemotherapy or not in case of breast cancer will totally depend on the stage of disease at presentation to the doctor. If your doctor has prescribed chemotherapy, there are very good chances that it is mandatory. There are very few but well identified instances when chemotherapy is either not required or can be avoided safely or avoided in view of risk of side effects being more possible than the benefit. Other than stage, the things that influence this decision, are age, any other diseases like diabetes or high blood pressure, etc. The biology of cancer e. G. If er, pr positive disease and whether the disease has already spread but not causing any functional harm. Such a decision has to be taken by a well learned and well experienced doctor, along with an informed decision. From patient. I can guide more only with more of patients details.

I do not think antibiotics has anything to do with your symptoms of fatigue, weakness, etc. Although the disease itself may cause such symptoms. Pls maintain a proper diet and if needed you may take multivitamins.

What's the cause of cancer? And please guide me what is the actual treatment? Then I will be grateful. Please guide me please.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Sir, cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of cells. Mostly the cause starts at genetic level when due to some faulty signals the cell grow uncontrolled and autonomously. This can be due to some chemicals, pollution pesticides radiation exposure industrial affluent, tobacco etc. Treatment depends on site of disease, stage, general condition and histopathology. It can be done by surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy etc.
