Lung cancer is often diagnosed in advance stages where surgery is not possible. But there are other treatment options like Chemotherapy or targeted therapy. Your oncologist will decide between them depending upon the histopathology report and patients general condition. Don't worry trust your oncologist.

I am 29 years old male, both my parents had cancer, my father passed away in 2009 and my mother survived by Gods Grace. I have heard that cancer is hereditary. Can you pls enlighten and im the youngest in my family.

Some cancers are inherited and some are not. Do not panic because even if you have a genetic trait, you can be healthy all your life if you have a good lifestyle. You can go ahead and do your genomic study which will tell you exactly about your genetic traits.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, It is a pleasure to hear from you. You will benefit from Thermi Tight procedure. ThermiBreast is an application that may be used for patients who seek to enhance their natural breast appearance, without visible scars. Thermi Breast uses controlled applied heat to contract tissue. This is done by placing a small probe under the skin to gently heat specific tissues to a physician selected therapeutic temperature. Regards.

My father 75 yrs old diagnosed prostate enlargement now he is using urine bag. Scan report shows grade III, PSA value...
sorry to hear about your dad's problem. Psa of 75 is extremely high and it warrants further tests to rule out cancer. Normal range of psa is between 0-5 and in infections & bph, it can reach uptil 11. He should undergo a trans rectal ultrasound (trus) along with a biopsy.

The exact causes of breast cancer aren't fully understood. However, there are certain factors known to increase the risk of breast cancer?

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking clarification. Well, as you understand correctly, no definite cause is known. However, p53 gene over-expression, excessive fatty diet, obesity, diabetes, fibrocystic breast disease, heredity/ inheritance of mutated breast cancer genes 1 (BRCA1) and 2 (BRCA2), smoking, alcohol intake, infertility, fertility treatment, estrogen therapy/ hormone replacement therapy (long term) in post menopausal women, delayed age at first pregnancy, nulliparity (not having child), early menstruation, delayed onset of menopause, lactating mothers not breast feeding, iron overload, exposure to ionizing radiation, sedentary lifestyle, antipsychotic drugs, depression, exposure to MMTV virus, high glycemic diet, silicone breast implants, exposure to xenobiotics, etc all are a few major things that can potentially increase the risk for breast cancer. Hope this clarifies. Take care.

Signs That Indicate About Ovarian Cancer!

Signs That Indicate About Ovarian Cancer!

Ovarian cancer tends to occur in the cells of an ovary. The ovaries are the two glands which are responsible for female reproduction. They produce ova or eggs and also create the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone. Ovarian cancer begins when abnormal cells in the ovary start to multiply rapidly and grow out of control to form a tumour.

Generally, it was believed that ovarian cancer does not deliver any specific side effects until the tumour has spread to a later stage and early indications of ovarian cancer were not recognizable.

Nonetheless, in some of the cases, ovarian cancer may bring about early indications. The most widely recognized symptoms of ovarian cancer are as follows:

  1. Constant bloating
  2. Ache in your gut or pelvis
  3. Inconvenience eating
  4. Feeling full instantly
  5. Urinary issues, for example, an urgent need to urinate or urinating more frequently than expected

In case that you have at least one of these side effects and it happens every day for more than two or three weeks, try to see a doctor or a specialist.

These symptoms are basic for a few women. They may not imply that you have ovarian cancer. It is very important for women to understand that these symptoms do not necessarily imply that they have ovarian cancer. The same number of other common and harmless conditions can bring about the same indications. Additionally, different reasons for these symptoms are significantly more common than ovarian cancer. These may include irritable bowel syndrome and urinary tract infections (UTIs). In any case, the early indications of ovarian cancer tend to follow a pattern, which is as follows:

  1. They begin abruptly.

  2. They do not feel the same as your typical stomach-related or menstrual issues.

  3. They happen almost consistently and do not leave.

Different signs and symptoms that affect a few women with ovarian cancer include the following:

  1. Digestion problem

  2. Fatigue

  3. Back pain.

  4. Pain during intercourse

  5. Constipation

  6. Menstrual cycle changes

However, these side effects are also common in a few women who do not have ovarian cancer. Most of the ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at a later stage after the tumours have spread. Fortunately, around 20% of women are diagnosed early, when the infection might be generally treatable. There is no complete screening test for early ovarian cancer. General pelvic examinations now and then, followed by ultrasound examinations or blood tests for cancer-related markers, have been routinely used for ovarian cancer screening. However, none of these tests are particularly effective when it comes to identifying ovarian cancer.

In case some of these symptoms start to manifest in your body, one should go for a general check-up. This is so because cancers are usually diagnosed at later stages where treatment is very difficult. Hence, the sooner one knows, the better it is.

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

It's for my sister. She has developed a lump on her breast. It's not painful. It's a movable lump. Local doctors told to operate it. Please suggest what is it and what should be the correct steps for it. As it has been two months since that lump was felt by her.

Do this self-breast examination once in 3-4 months and do report to your doctor if you feel something unusual - a lump, retraction of nipple, dimpling of skin, any kind of nipple discharge, etc.
