Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It is a very sensitive matter because it is a bone tumour. The number of cycles of chemotherapy to be given actually depends upon a lot of factors and oncologists are best people to decide for that. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I am 72 years male from Mumbai. I would like to know the symptoms for Prostrate cancer.

The initial symptoms of prostate cancer are same as that of benign prostate enlargement. That is difficulty in passing urine. It is better to be on regular health checkup which includes PSA value to detect it early before any symptoms start and treated appropriately.

Cervical Cancer: 9 Symptoms And Its Treatment!

Cervical Cancer: 9 Symptoms And Its Treatment!

Cervical cancer is a form of cancer which occurs in the cervix or the lower part of the uterus in women, which opens up into the vagina. Its different from the other cancers that occur in other parts of the uterus and has a high rate of being cured if detected early.

Causes of Cervical Cancer: Cervical cancer is usually caused when abnormal cells present in the cervix, get out of control. Usually, major cases of cervical cancer are caused by a virus known as the human papillomavirus or HPV. This virus gets transmitted from one person to another by sexual means or sexual contact. Abnormal changes in the cervix cells lead to cervical cancer. Usually, cell changes occur in the transformation zone in the cervix as the cells tend to change constantly, thereby leading to cancer.

Symptoms:

  1. Abnormal vaginal bleeding between menstrual phases, after menopause or after having sex.
  2. Pain is experienced during sex.
  3. Abnormal vaginal discharge is produced.
  4. Abnormal changes in the menstrual cycle.
  5. Anemia due to abnormal bleeding from the vagina.
  6. Recurring pain in the pelvis, back or leg.
  7. Several urinary problems due to the blockage of the uterus.
  8. Urine or stool leakage into the vagina.
  9. Loss of weight.

How it can be diagnosed?
A routine screening test should be undertaken to observe any abnormal cell changes in the cervix and also for the screening for cervical cancer. Taking regular Pap smear test is recommended to detect abnormal cell changes so that cervical cancer can be prevented before hand. Other diagnostic tests include, Colposcopy and cervical biopsy to determine the presence of abnormal cells in the cervix, Endocervical biopsy and Cone biopsy.

Treatment options available: 
Cervical cancer can be treated when detected at an early stage. The type of treatment depends on the stage and type of cervical cancer. The most common treatment methods are as follows:

  1. Surgery can be undertaken for removal of the cancer. Several types of surgeries exist and the ideal one depends on the location and severity of the cervical cancer.
  2. Radiation therapy involves the use of high dosage X-rays and implants within the vaginal cavity. This kills the cancer cells and is used in some specific stages of cervical cancer. This therapy is often used alongside surgery.
  3. Chemo-radiation is a combination of radiation therapy and chemotherapy. This procedure can be used at various stages of cervical cancer.
  4. Chemotherapy involves using medicines for killing cancer cells. It is used in advanced stages of cervical cancer.

Pelvic cancer is caused by abnormal cell changes in the pelvis. It is a common kind of cancer and can cause negative effects on the health. Proper diagnosis and treatment are essential for treating pelvic cancer. Cervical cancer is one of the cancers for which vaccine for prevention is available. Young girls from teenage & older women upto 45 yrs can take this vaccine. It should be taken after consulting a gynecologist.

My breast pains a lot. My left breast in particular has swelling. I have a lot of pimples as well. I am not married. I am 23. Please help me.

Pain in the breasts could be due to cyclical mastalgia, fibrocystic disease, hormonal changes due to OC pills or pregnancy, granulomatous mastitis, abscess, cysts and rarely cancer. The treatment would depend upon the cause. Most common cause is cyclical mastalgia due to fibrocystic changes, which usually resolve with time. Treatment may be given if severe pain. Swelling of the breast could be due to weight gain, hormonal changes due to OC pills or pregnancy or underlying lumps due to fibrocystic disease or fibroadenoma or phylloides tumor or rarely cancer. Better to see a breast surgeon who would examine you, ask for an ultrasound and SOS core biopsy if needed. If you want to further discuss your symptoms, feel free to contact me directly.

Im 17 and I sometimes have sharp needle pains in my either right and left nipples alternatively is that a sign of breast cancer?

BHMS
Homeopath, Anand
No only pain in nipples couldn't be the symptom of cancer. Moreover you are too young. There are too many reasons for pain in nipples like hormonal disturbances, change in shape of breast, improper lingerie etc. Do not think extreme. If still not satisfied just get it examined with gynaecoligist. And for pain in nipple start homeopathic medicines which are safe. Also start applying castor oil on nipples for relief.

My mother, aged 78, has been diagnosed with ca pancreas with liver and peritoneal metastasis. She has gross ascites, which is presumed to be due to the malignancy. She had developed jaundice about 2 months ago and underwent ERCP / MRCP with introduction of stent in the CBD, which was blocked due to a growth. Doctors have advised against chemotherapy and suggested a palliative approach with symptom management. Considering this, is there any way the quality of life can be improved by home care etc.

Dear lybrateuser, -to take care of your mother is very important for which you can employ a professional nurse, but she will require your support as well as other family members & friends support as managing such a patient all alone is a difficult task -start by making a list of the tasks & dividing the tasks among you, other members, friends, professional help -you should be proactive that means taking charge & planning to prevent last minute emergency -on your part communicate with her, check on her stock of medication, arrange appointments with the doctor, accompany her there -focus on her emotional, physical, spiritual needs -be positive, set a routine for her & encourage her to follow it as far as possible -keep her involved in activity in whatever way you can.

Sir I want to know the symptoms of mouth cancer and if someone smoke once in week then is it possible chance of cancer. Sandeep.

MCh - Surgical Oncology, FEBS - Fellow of European Board of Surgical Oncology
Oncologist, Navi Mumbai
Please look out for any white lesion in the mouth. Ulcers that do not heal. Or any other swelling Smoking can not only cause mouth cancer but also cancer of the food pipe, lungs, stomach, pancreas etc. Best way to avoid cancer, is to stop smoking. No number is the right number to avoid cancer. Of course more the cigarettes, more the chances.

I have small acnes on my both breasts what could be reason for this and is there any serious in that. Few months back in Jan -18 my TSH was at high level approx 8.00 now it is fine is it related to that or what else?

The breast acne could be a part of generalised acne or folliculitis. Sometimes it may be an allergic reaction. Better to show it to a dermatologist. The TSH of 8 is suggestive of hypothyroidism. Better to re-evaluate again in 4-6 weeks along with T3 and T4 levels and consider starting thyroxine tablets for the same. Also, see an endocrinologist for the same. To do an ultrasound of the thyroid would be advisable Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.
