Hello, I have been diagnosed with LABC -- locally advanced breast cancer (Stage 3C) I would like to know more about the tumour markers CA 15-3 ,CA 27-29 and CEA. I would like to know how many breast cancer cells must exist in the body to elicit a positive response --- 1, 5, 20 or a few hundred. If a single breast cancer cell can elicit a positive tumour marker response then these tests can be used after treatment (chemo, surgery and radiation) to see if any cancer cell has survived. Alternatively after treatment I can get my blood tested every two weeks to see if there is any recurrence. In other words I am looking for information about the SENSITIVITY of these tumour marker tests. Waiting for your reply (Female, 40 years)

Unfortunately the tumour markers for breast cancer are not at all sensitive or specific. As such they are not used for surveillance or diagnosis or follow up. For diagnosis a combination of clinical breast examination, mammogram (xray and/or usg) and biopsy gives almost 100% diagnosis. After completion of treatment, the follow up is with clinical examination and a mammogram.

There is not enough information to link the rash to food allergy. Food allergy causing rash is often dramatic and comes very rapidly after eating. Frequently associated with other symptoms like vomiting, wheeze and circulatory problems. If rash is confined to legs and arms, there may be another local irritation that is causing the rash. I would suggest a more detailed consultation to diagnose the problem before treatment.

Hello, The black corners of the mouth or black discolouration around mouth can be due to lip licking, vit. B2 deficiency, smoking, overexposure to sun or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. So, take some vitamin B12 supplements (like becosule) and avoid lip licking. Keep yourself well hydrate, drink 10-12 glasses of water in a day. You should apply a good lip balm and sunscreen with spf 30 at least half an hour before going out in sun. Also, apply homoeopathic cream - Medicynth's Witch Hazel over the affected area twice.

Is your hair loss accompanied with greying of hair and have they become very thin? your hair needs a very high protein well-rounded diet. Hair and nails are the last organs to get nutrition in the body, hence only if all the organs get sufficient nutrition and proteins, only then the remaining nutrition would be used for hairs. A strand of hair is composed of mostly protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Hence a therapeutic diet prescribed by a registered dietitian can help a lot in hair growth. Besides diet excessive stress, current/past dandruff and some medication are conclusively known to retard hair growth and promote hair loss. - cut down on the use of hair spray, hair gels, and styling creams that contain harsh chemical ingredients, which can dry out the scalp and cause the formation of flakes. Also harsh treatments such as perms, colours, relaxers etc take a toll on the health of your hair. - avoid changing your shampoo and conditioner constantly. Stick to one good mild cleansing shampoo for six months before changing. - excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, rain water and dust without proper protection makes the hair dry, brittle and limp. Use a live in conditioner during the rains to protect it from the humidity and wash and oil it regularly to maintain a healthy scalp. I may also prescribe medications like biotin or minox. That are proven to help in hairgrowth and repair I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Hello lybrate-user. The most natural way to get rid of and prevent tanning is to use a sunscreen daily. The skin has a natural cycle and it sheds every 28-30 days after which the new formed skin comes on the top. Using a sunscreen daily, reapplying it every 2-3 hours, will help you get your true color. If you want faster results, or you are looking for getting a lighter skin tone, you can take a private consultation regarding skin lighting creams and other procedures. Hope I could help. Take care.

1. Avoid direct contact with sunlight. use sunscreen. 2. Apply pure honey to your face, leave it on for a few minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. This simple remedy will help remove dead skin cells, making your skin appear brighter and fresher than before. Do this once daily. 3. To make a skin-lightening mask, combine one teaspoon each of honey and lemon juice, one tablespoon of powdered milk, and one-half teaspoon of almond oil. Mix them well and apply it

How to know my skin is of which type? whether it is dry /oily/sensitive/etc.? please help me out?

How to know my skin is of which type? whether it is dry /oily/sensitive/etc.? please help me out?
We can categorize skin according to whether it is oily, dry, normal, or a combination of these conditions. Knowing this will help you determine what types of products to use on your skin to make it healthier------------------ 1. You may have dry skin in some places if it is red, wrinkly, dull, and rough. If you have dry skin, you will probably not be able to see your pores in that area. It may even look scaly or itch------------- 2. You may have oily skin if it looks shiny, has large visible pores, and is prone to breaking out in blackheads and pimples. ---------- 3. Combination skin.-- this is very common. Many people have skin that is oily in some places, like the nose, and dry in others. Areas that are often prone to drying include the backs of the hands, elbows, and limbs. If this is the case, you may need to tailor your skin care routine to the skin in each area----------------- 4. Younger people are more likely to have normal skin. You likely have normal skin if:------------ (a) you rarely get pimples or blackheads.---------- (b) your pores are not enlarged or easily noticeable------------. (c) your skin does not have dry, flaky, itchy, red patches.--------- (d) your skin looks healthy, has an even color, and is elastic.----------------------- take care of your skin regardless of what skin type you have. These tips will help you maintain healthy, vibrant skin. They should work for all skin types and all ages.---------------------------- (a) wash away oils, dead skin, and dirt daily with a gentle cleanser. This will protect your skin from getting clogged pores and forming pimples. It will also remove irritants that you might have come in contact with during the day.------------------------- (b) don't wear your makeup to bed. This increases the likelihood that it will get rubbed into your pores as you sleep, causing them to clog and form pimples.------------- (c) combat wrinkles by using a moisturizer each day that contains sunscreen in it. This will protect your skin from sun damage.---------- (d) don't smoke. Smoking will make your skin look older, more wrinkled and less healthy. If you already smoke, quitting will improve your skin quality.-------------------
