May i know your age and menopausal status. Post menopausal bleed or bleeding after sexual intercourse may be indicators to gynaecological cancers. It is difficult to predict your risk right now. But a surgery for removing uterus is definitely warranted, It may be checked during the surgery with a frozen section technique to evaluate for presence of cancer and be addressed accordingly then

Sir, what are the main causes of cancer. How can we defence it. What are the remedies. Can you help me.

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist, Mandsaur
Cancer Causes Certain genes control the life cycle – the growth, function, division, and death -- of a cell. When these genes are damaged, the balance between normal cell growth and death is lost. Cancer occurs due to DNA damage and out-of-control cell growth. The following is a partial list of factors known to damage DNA and increase the risk of cancer: Genetic mutations (for example, BRCA1 and BRCA2) Environmental exposure to UV radiation, air pollution Bacterial (H. Pylori) and viral infections (Epstein-Barr, HPV, hepatitis B and C) Lifestyle choices (poor diet, inactivity, obesity, heavy alcohol use, smoking cigarettes and tobacco use, exposure to chemicals and toxins) Treatment with chemotherapy, radiation, or immunosuppressive drugs Cancer Treatment Cancer treatment is highly variable depending on the type and stage of a cancer as well as the overall health of the patient. The most common treatments for cancer are surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Other treatments include targeted/biological therapies, hematopoietic stem cell transplants, angiogenesis inhibitors, cryosurgery, and photodynamic therapy. Every cancer treatment has potential risks, benefits, and side effects. The patient and his or her care team, which may include an internist or other specialist, surgeon, oncologist, radiation oncologist, and others, will help determine the best and most appropriate course of treatment.

Do chickens and cows get cancer? And if so, is it dangerous to eat cancerous meat?

MD Radiation Oncology, ESMO Certified Medical Oncologist, DM Medical Oncology (Pursuing)
Oncologist, Mumbai
Chickens and cows also are affected by cancer. It is important to know that cancer does not spread by eating or touch. It is not an infectious disease. But it is necessary to maintain hygiene and eat well cooked food so that other infections are avoided.

Hi , I appreciate you seeking help your mother. Well, as far as I understand, one of the complications of lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma is that there is an increase in serum immunoglobulin levels (IgM) that can increase the viscosity, and this hyperviscosity in turn can increase the risk of stroke. A plasmapheresis procedure, if attempted before the start of treatment (with appropriate chemotherapy), is likely to bring down the hyperviscosity that can reduce the chances of a stroke. You may seek second opinion from an haemato-oncologist, on the above-mentioned and seek the best approach of treatment forward. Again, should there be chances of remission at this stage, you may plan a stem cell transplant should it be feasible in the given context. Simultaneously, an integrative treatment with alternative medicines may help improve clinical outcomes, although a cure cannot be guaranteed at this stage. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely

Hi lybrate-user, commonly blood tests/ tumor markers, scans and biopsies are usually employed to diagnose cancer, with biopsy being the gold standard that clinches the diagnosis. The tests, as mentioned above, vary from cancer to cancer. However, your piles issue is mostly linked with your digestive issues / chronic constipation. For the time being, I would advise you to streamline your diet and lifestyle and stay relaxed. Focus mostly on leafy greens and fresh fibrous fruits including apples on a daily basis. Stay well hydrated, with at least 8 to 10 glasses of water on a daily basis. Avoid flesh foods completely for now. To get over stubborn constipation, if any, you can consume 1 tsp softovac powder duly mixed in a glass of warm drinking water, post dinner for the next 10 days. Consuming juice of bael fruit pulp also stabilizes digestion and cures constipation issues. Post toilet, you can sit in a bowl of cold water to which a tsp of dettol antimicrobial liquid has been added and mixed properly. Post that, use pilex ointment (as recommended) from himalaya. At the same time, get yourself clinically evaluated by a competent gi specialist who can examine your anus/ rectum with a proctoscope and evaluate the seriousness as appropriate. Take care and all the very best.

It is not such an easy task for indian government to ban the cigaretted because it is a huge industry and many people will loose employment also. So the best policy is to avoid smoking as it causes lung cancer.

Dear sir, early diseases of lung can be operated and removed, but advanced diseases need chemotherapy radiation therapy. If pain is because of bone involvement then palliative radiation therapy may be offered. Patient needs adequate amount of pain killers to overcome pain and a good supportive care.

Monurol is antibiotic used to treat bladder infections, hope now it should be fine otherwise you can get culture sensitivity of urine done. You must be suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia that can be treated with medicines.

To lose weight, you have to maintain an input-output ratio. Whatever food you eat contains the input calories which gives you the output calories in the form of energy. If your input calories is too much, you are likely to put on weight. The best way to lose weight is to exercise or spend the additional calories accumulated in your body in the form of fat. The other most important thing is to eat wisely. Try to cut down the excessive calories you are eating and make sure whatever you eat is healthy. Some tips to lose weight - 1. Have more fruits and vegetables than junk food and juices. 2. Avoid sugar as much as you can 3. Exercise 3-4 times a week. 4. Have an early dinner, preferably before 8 p. M. 5. Do not starve yourself. Eat small meals 5 times a day. 6. Have barley soup in dinner and avoid rice at night. 7. Drink lots of water daily.
