Yes it can be given safely. Age is not the only factor to deside chemo. Now a days we account other co- morbidities for chemotherapy decision.

I am a 49 years old slim male, weighing 65 kg . I am suffering from frequent urination for some times. I am unable to hold the urge for long and there is some leakage most of the times. I got my routine investigations done on 6.02.15. My Serum glucose readings are 99 and 123 mg/dl for Fasting and PP respectively. While the sonography report states Prostrate to be nomal (25x47x35mm) in size, outline echotexture with noral seminal vesicles and approximate weight as 22gms, the PSA reading is 5.42 ng/ml. Among other, HB, TC, DC, Smear morphology,Liver function tests- all show normal results. Cholesterol, Triglycerides and LDL Cholesterol are at borderline while HDL Cholesterol is are normal. My uric acid level is 7 mg/dl and I have a toffi in my left toe. My BP is normal and am not taking any medicines for anything at the moment. I try to keep my uric acid level withi check by having low protein diet. I also walk a lot on regular basis. My questions are: 1. What should be the medicines and precautions for Prostrate for me? 2. What should I do to bring my cholesterol levels back within normal ranges? 3. Should I start medicines for Uric acid too?

for prostate there is no precaution we all will have enlargement of prostate after 60yr, its good that you are maintaining a healthy life style, walking a lot, restrict your diet to avoid any kind of sweet and oily food to bring down your cholesterol and yes you should start medicines for your increased uric acid level, consult an urologist.

All I want to kno...
There is no way you can nullify the harmful effects of smoking without giving it up. You can try nicotine gums and patches if you wish to abstain. Smoking for 2 months, generally does not predispose to cancer, but it is never too soon, to develop cancer. It generally does not sound like cancer yet, but I would still advise to quit smoking. Its uncool.

Hi, My father-in-law has been detected with 4th stage Lung Adenocarcinoma, June, this year. He is having a history of Tobacco chewing. PET-CT and CT scan suggested that the cancer has spread to lymph nodes and some part of abdomen. He completed his 4 rounds of chemotherapy with Carboplatin and pemetrexed and he is completely fine and totally symptomless. His blood count is absolutely normal. Can we hope that he has the chances of recovery.

What does his latest PET scan say? Regular PET scans can only tell the ongoing disease status. Its good that he is fine. As long as he can accept chemo without side effects, it may be taken. Stage 4 cancer is difficult to respond 100% with any chemo.

My girlfriend telling me that she had pain in her breast today. Tell me answer please .

Breast pain or mastalgia is a common complaint in women of reproductive age group. That is the childbearing age group. Due to effects of estrogen and progesterone, breasts become heavy and tender. Which can be perceived as pain. But this pain is usually just before the periods. Otherwise breast pain can be a symptom of lumps in breast. These lumps can cause dragging pain. These lumps could be non cancerous or cancerous. In this age group, 9 out of 10 lumps are benign that is non cancerous. A thorough history and a detailed physical examination is pivotal and usually conclusive. If required a sonohraphy breast could be done. Although very rare breast pain due to a cancer in breadt is still possible for this early age group. Keeping all this in mind, seeing a breast consultant appears the best choice and then after age of 20 start a monthly breast self exam.

Do homeopathic medicines have any side effect? Also tell me sir which therapy is more effective in treating deadly diseases like cancer?

Dear Sir, Lot of effort is going on to decide which is the best therapy for cancer. Unfortunately cancer is one word with 1000 manifestations and there is no simple cure for it. Having said this, allopathy at present gives you the best shot at cure. A judicious use of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy often cures cancers in stage 1 and 2. There is lot of research going on for homeopathy and ayurveda but unfortunately it is still in its infancy. So at present allopathy is the best bet. I am not saying this because I am a surgeon, but unfortunately every month we get 2 or 3 patients who were stage 1 to begin with and progressed to stage 4 on alternative therapies and we could not do anything for them at such a late stage.
