I am 65 years old male who has been informed as having the following problems. 1. Enlarged prostrate (informed that tis is due to age) 2. Obstruction in urinary bladdere outlet obstruction. I would like to have your considered advise regarding medication/surgery.

Dear , for better advice you got to give me more details of your complaints. Bladder outlet obstruction is caused by enlarged prostate gland which is usually due to age. Give me urine report and sonography reports with full bladder volume, bladder wall thickness and post void residual urine. Do you have some delay in starting urination? how many times do you pass urine in a day and also at night? is the flow weak? do you feel that you are emptying bladder or do you feel some urine is left behind? please post the results with pictures and the answers of the questions.

I'm using 2% hydroquinone for past two years, so far I'm happy with the results but I'm worried by people saying hydroquinone can cause skin cancer, can you please help me?

Dear sir, there is no conclusive evidence that it Hydroquinone is definitely related to cancer or not. But cosmetic products do contain chemicals and should be user with caution. Any burning sensation or allergic reaction, it should be discontinued.

Prostate Cancer - What Should You Know?

Cancer is the most dangerous disease noticeable throughout the world. The most common type of cancer that affects men is prostate cancer. Prostate is a small exocrine gland situated directly below the bladder and in front of the rectum. This gland is approximately in size of a walnut and plays an important role in production of the semen. During the climax stage of sex, the prostate gland is forced to push the fluid and remove the semen out of the reproductive structures.

Prostate gland enlargement is a slow progressive disease which makes many males left unidentified even in the presence of prostate cancer even until they die. 6 out of 100 males over the age of 60 are getting prostate cancer. Though prostate cancer can be cured at a better rate when compared to other types of cancer it is always best to stay protected. Prevention is always better than cure. Here are few tips to keep your prostate healthy. 

Signs and symptoms of prostate cancer- 
During the early stages of prostate cancer there are usually no symptoms. Most men at this stage find out they have prostate cancer after a routine check up or blood test. When symptoms do exist, they are usually one or more of the following: 

  • The patient urinates more often 
  • The patient gets up at night more often to urinate 
  • He may find it hard to start urinating 
  • He may find it hard to keep urinating once he has started 
  • There may be blood in the urine Urination might be painful 
  • Ejaculation may be painful (less common) 
  • Achieving or maintaining an erection may be difficult (less common). 

If the prostate cancer is advanced the following symptoms are also possible: 

  • Bone pain, often in the spine (vertebrae), pelvis, or ribs 
  • The proximal part of the femur can be painful 
  • Leg weakness 
  • Urinary incontinence 
  • Fecal incontinence 

Ways to have a healthy prostate – 

  1. Diet and weight – The most important factor is the diet to maintain a healthy weight. Avoid fatty food items and take fats from vegetables than from animals. Avoid dairy products and increase the intake of fresh fruits and vegetables. 
  2. Exercise – Have a regular practise of doing exercise at least for 30mins a day. This really helps you to keep your body fit. 
  3. Be precautious – If you have a family history of prostate cancer or if you feel you are at high risk of getting prostate cancer talk with your doctor about it and take preventive drugs as per the doctor’s advice. 
  4. Red foods – Research shows that men who consume red foods like watermelon, tomato and other red fruits are at lower risk of getting prostate cancer as they contain a powerful antioxidant called lycopene 
  5. Stop smoking – If you are at high risk of getting prostate cancer it is best advised to quit smoking and alcohol.

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

I have a lump in my right breast I have done mammography report says 3 step doctor had given evion 400 is it enough to cure it.

Hello, To begin a safe homoeopathic medication to dilute your lump, we need to know the dimension of lump and memo graphics. Evion 400 might subside chest and breast pain can't dissolve the lump itself. Till then take homoeopathic medicine: @ Lapis alb 30-5 drops ,thrice. Avoid,junk food, alcohol and Nicotine. Take care.

My father was diagnose as bucuol mucosa carcinoma in upper jaw I want to ask whether this type of cancer can be cured by homoeopathy treatment or better we should go for surgery.

Better to go for surgery if operable. I have seen many patients go for homeopathy, Ayurvedic or Unami medicine, some of which contain steroids which suppress the cancer for a few weeks, but does not cure it. It later comes back with a vengeance. Even metastatic at times, when it is not curable.

Hi doctor my grandfather suffering from stomach cancer adenocarcinoma last stage. He has burning sensation in stomach...
Dear lybrate-user, what ever your grand father can take easily give him. There is no restriction of diet. What suits him give him. Basic treatment if possible should have been provided to him so that he gets symptomatic relief. Truly,

I am 20 year old girl, I'm suffering from itching on breast. Now-a-days its too much, I have not yet taken any precaution. Let me know what best I can do. I wondering whether it is breast cancer or not. Please do let me know.

Respected lybrate-user hi don't worry it's not cancer itching is due to excess perspiration. Keep part clean & dry. Apply dusting powder like nebasulf powder 2-3 times a day. For sometime avoid very tight brassiere. Consult later if problem thanks regards.
