Hello lybrate-user, a renal calculus 6 mm big is not very severe. However such a stone can cause a lot of pain and discomfort while it moves. Take a lot of fluids-as much as 3 to 4 liters of water everyday; avoid drinking juices; drink citro soda sachet mixed in plain water.

You have 2 issues 1) bleeding per rectum -Which could be due to several causes starting from Piles, inflammatory bowel disease, anal fissure, colon polyps and tumors 2) second issue is Thyroid issue for which you are getting Thyronorm which is T4 WHICH IS THE INACTIVE HORMONE yOu should be getting T3 -Active hormone T4 inactive hormone has to get converted to T3 active hormone which occurs in the liver in the presence of certain nutrients like enough Iodine, Zinc,b12, selenium,iron and Magnesium otherwise you will be taking lifelong a medication which will not work. This happens world wide with drs who do not do all the test for diagnosis of hypothyroidism they would have only done T4, T3 and TSH which is not enough there is 4 more tests to be done. They follow the TSH level and your level might be normal but you still continue to have symptoms that is because most of the drs all over the world are treating the lab results ,and not the symptoms. The normal TSH level is different from Optimal TSH levels. So take a consult to get the right thyroid tests and right advice on what medication you should take .and what books you should read to get educated by yourself on having a healthy thyroid working for you and not against you. For constipation Eat high-fiber foods. Increase fluid intake keep moving do not sit for long hours Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Doing so softens the stool and increases its bulk, which will help you avoid the straining that can worsen symptoms from existing hemorrhoids. Add fiber to your diet slowly to avoid problems with gas. Please visit a specialist General surgeon or Gastroenterologist to get a rectal exam and colono scopy done which depends on your age which you have not disclosed keep your gut healthy. You are what you eat and what yu eat eats. Get educated and not medicated.

My mother has one kidney. So is there any specific food that she must not eat? Please advise.

Choose and prepare foods with less salt and sodium. Buy fresh food more often. Sodium is added to many packaged foods. Use spices, herbs, in place of salt. Donot use salt substitutes eat small portion of protein foods bake, roast, stew, grill, broil, or stir-fry foods instead of frying. Cook with nonstick cooking spray or a small amount of olive oil instead of butter. If shes told to limit potassium, drink apple, grape, or cranberry juice instead of orange juice.

Can you please share your ultrasound report. The location of the stone and the amount of obstruction causing hydronephrosis will be a determining factor.

Prostate Biopsies - Ways You Can Avoid It!

Prostate Biopsies - Ways You Can Avoid It!

One of the most common issues with old age in men is the enlarged prostate. Any difficulty with urination (no constant stream, difficulty initiating, or incomplete emptying of the bladder for instance), and the first suspect is an enlarged prostate. These symptoms are followed by a digital rectal exam to check for an enlarged prostate. Once confirmed, the next step is to check for levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA). If both the exam and the PSA are positive, it could mean prostate cancer. As with any cancer, it is believed that sooner it is diagnosed and the treatment is started, the better.

Historically, the best way to rule out the prostate cancer had been to do a prostate biopsy. This is a minor invasive procedure, wherein biopsies are taken from various regions of the prostate which are known to develop cancer (about 12). A disadvantage of this procedure includes missing out on the front part of the prostate which can also develop cancer. Secondly, it is not a very pleasant experience and given a chance, most men would not want to have it done.

There is good news for these men who would like to avoid prostate biopsies. The first is the multiparametric MRI which uses no x-rays and is considered very safe with extremely accurate results. This MRI exam requires about an hour, and once the images are obtained, the doctor will analyse these images and check for several parameters to assess for prostate cancer. The absence of cancer can be confirmed with up to 90% accuracy, which is far greater than with usual biopsies. If there is a possibility of cancer, then a biopsy can be done to confirm it.

Also, these images indicate the exact region where cancer likely is, and this guides the doctor to biopsy only where absolutely essential. The chances of false positive and false negative results are reduced drastically. The one disadvantage here is that MRI detected biopsies usually tend to be of a higher grade which requires immediate treatment.

Another way to reduce chances of the biopsy by 30% to 50% is by the 4K test. It helps detect a variety of prostate issues including cancer. It can be used once higher levels of PSA is identified and before going for a biopsy. It combined 4 prostate-specific biomarkers with clinical information to accurately provide men with a risk of developing prostate cancer. It can be used even after negative biopsies to confirm the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

These two measures can drastically reduce the incidence of prostate biopsies, which is neither pleasant for the patient nor very effective for the doctor.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
