I am a 62-year-old male. I am suffering from Polycythemia Rubra Vera (due to JAK 2 mutation) for last 8 years. First 3 years I was put on treatment with low level of aspirin, amlodipine and periodic venesection. Last 5 years I am on Hydroxyurea along with the above mentioned drugs. The dose of hydroxyurea is adjusted periodically based on FBC. My questions are: 1. What are the adverse effects of long term treatment with Hydroxyurea? 2. I get occasional muscle cramp. How do I get relief from it? I would like to know 1. What is the adverse drug effect of long term intake of Hydroxyurea. 2. I suffer from painful muscle cramp occasionally. What I should do to get relief from it?

Every drug has side effects. Use is based on benefits vis -a -vis side effects. Hydroxy urea is well used in blood disorders, specially of neoplastic variety. Important side effects are -bone marrow depression, gastrointestinal disturbances, impairment of renal function, pulmonary oedema, mild dermatological reactions. Loss of hair and neurological manifestations. Most of muscle cramps, if not very severe can be relieved by stretching the muscle, movements or maintenance of electrolyte balance. Topical muscle relaxants can also be lightly used without massaging,

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for both your mother and elder sister. As regards elder sister's case, it is not possible to comment on the chances of a recurrence given the short description of the issue. Nevertheless, from a dietary standpoint, it is advisable to go for low glycemic foods that is rich in leafy greens and also appropriate seasonal fruits. Simultaneously, being on Tamoxifen, foods like soy, tangerine, grape fruit, genestein supplements etc all are best avoided. An integrative treatment with alternative medicines can improve clinical outcomes. Again, given the acute case of COPD in your mother's case, it is always advisable to take emergency medical help suitably first and do as recommended. You can connect with all relevant reports and treatment history for both, for further naturopathic/ integrative traction as would deem appropriate contextually.

My friend had a Nasopharynx cancer Is it curable after chemo and all. What type of cancer it is? Pls give an advice.

MCH - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello dear, nasopharynx cancer has good response to chemoradiotherapy. Based on the extent of disease and histological variant, response varies. If biopsy report is squamous carcinoma, has good reponse to chemoradiotherapy. If report is adenoxarcinima, has poor reponse.

Is it true that one should not wash her head for 1st 3 days of period because it instigates cancer? Has it got any scientific base ?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

No, it is not true at all. In old days, people use to practice this, so that woman should get rest for at least those days of menses.

My teenage girls want to use nail polish, but I have heard that many nail polishes contain formaldehyde and can cause cancer. Is it safe for my daughters to use it?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Now a days most renowned brands do not use formaldehyde, though once in a while it's okay to use, we do not see too many cancers linked to nail polish usage. It is definitely of concern for the workers working in nail paint factories, who are in chemical contacts in many ways

After surgery of prostate cancer on 26.5. 2025, I have no control over passing urine. My under garments remain always wet. Kindly advise.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
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
