What are the symptoms of the cancer. And what kind of medical tests should be done? What kind of treatment should have to take?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate user, symptoms of cancer are varied, depending upon the organ or the site involved and also upon the stage of the disease. Early cancer may be symptomless and may be diagnosed by coincidence. When the cancer is symptomatic it is possibly in advanced stage. Treatment will also depend on the type and stage of cancer. Which may be either by surgery or radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

How cancer could get prevent for a normal person leaving healthy life and how should cancer patients face it?

MBBS, MS- Surgery , M.Ch - Surgical Oncology , FIAGES
Oncologist, Delhi
Prevention of Cancer: 1. Stay away from tobacco products 2. Eat healthy and daily physical activity- fresh fruits and vegetable are good, maintain optimal body weight 3. Be safe in sun 4. Cancer awareness and early detection: alarming signs are (CAUTION)- Change in bowel or bladder habits A sore that will not heal Unusual discharge or bleeding Thickening or lump in the breast, testicles or elsewhere Indigestion or difficulty swallowing Obvious change in a wart or mole Nagging cough or hoarseness 5. Cancer Screening: screening is for healthy individuals with education. Rather than going for unnecessary blind tests, programme for screening should be planned in consultation with your oncologist as requirements are different for different cancers and differs as per age groups and gender. Also screening is not effective in all cancers. Cancer education and awareness is has due importance. Some cancers in which screening has been shown to be effective includes breast, coclon, rectum, cervix, prostate, lung in high risk groups but as mentioned earlier it is planned with participation of both individual and oncologist.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Usually there are four stages of cancer one to four, fourth being metastatic disease. People die of cancer due to its aggressive behaviour and ignorance of its initial symptoms and landing in clinics in advanced stages.

How to over come with cancer, which is held at lungs which becomes very pain full. Please give some advice.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
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.

Swelling can be detected in an ultrasound but to confirm whether it is a cancerous type we have to do a biopsy.

Hello my wife has pain in her breast in left side. Like muscle catch. When she lift anything from left hand she gets pain. And when she takes deep breath she gets pain. Only In left side below her Breast.

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
The way you have described your wife's pain, it is unlikely, although not impossible, to be due to any disease in breast. If it would have been due to breast disease, other brest complaints like lump, heaviness, skin changes, blood or pus discharge, might have been present. But nothing can be said surely unless a doctor examines her. So it will be better to see a doctor relating to muscles and bone diseases, (orthopedician), to rule out cause of pain originating in the wall of the chest which lies below the breast. He will suggest solution as well as if a breast surgeon is to be seen or not. Hope this helps.

Are there screening tests that can find lung cancer early? How many people get lung cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, early diagnosis of lung cancer can be made by screening chest xray, but it shouldn't be done very frequently as there is risk of radiation exposure so annually once is fine unless there is some problems like cough, blood in sputum, voice change, breathing difficulty etc. Lung cancer is the most common cancers relatrd deaths amongst males and the incidence is amongst males in nearly 7percent of all cancers.

Pain in breast is mostly not due to cancer. It can be due to mastitis. Some persin experience pain during menstrual period or pre mentrual symptom. Sometimes it can also be caused by some drugs. Fibrocystic disease also sometimes cause pain. You need to consult any doctor to asses the exact cause in your case. You also need to provide more details to regarding factors mentioned above.

Its package is available, details as per below;;-- --there will be no need or little need of other therapies ------------------------------------------ --curative treatment;- it will be the future medicine of cancer for the whole suffering world. -tibetan therapy--medicine -cancero - course is the best treatment available so for, with almost 100%--results. It is a newly entrant in the field of oral medical cancer therapy, and is available with very few tibetan experts only. Most of doctors are still unaware of its use. With no side effects, it can be used both as preventive as well as curative in all types of cancers/ tumors. Its 6 month course or so is sufficient to cure cancer of any type, at any stage, provided the patient is able to take medicines orally. It converts cancers into tumors and then cures. It can be used alone or in combination with other therapies, if cancer is in advanced stage. It has been successfully used in children as small as 6 months age and old persons -73 years old. -its pack is available in 3 forms;- -cancero-th+, cancero-thu+, cancero-thua+ -cancero-th pack is available @ rs 5000/- pm.
