Commonly these are lipoma or neurofibroma. They are benign tumors and does not require any treatment and there is no specific medicine for these. If there is sudden increase in size consult surgeon.

I am 75 years and recently had a operation in which a cancerous tumor of 7 kg was surgically removed. Currently I am bed ridden and doctor has advised against chemo as my health is fragile as I am in liquid diet post surgery. I would like to know about any medication apart from chemo or Radio that will improve the health and give stability.

Dear lybrate-user, no clear details are there which tell what was the type of cancer, how much was removed. On that basis you decide chemotherapy or radiotherapy. If you can provide the details I can suggest you the further best treatment

Dear Lybrate User, Benign Hypertrophy of Prostate is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. In this clinical condition multiple nodules are formed inside the prostate gland. These nodules often compress the urethra resulting in the narrowing of the lumen of urethra & producing a resistance to the urine flow. Resistance to urine flow requires the bladder to work harder during voiding, possibly leading to progressive enlargement, instability, or weakness of the bladder muscle. Benign Hypertrophy of Prostate can be easily diagnosed by an USG of whole abdomen along with blood test for Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA). Follow the given medication as directed:- 1) 5 drops of Homoeopathic CAUSTICUM 30 at early morning daily before brushing teeth 2) 5 drops of Homoeopathic CONIUM MAC 30 before going to bath daily. 3) 5 drops of Homoeopathic BARYTA CARB 30 just one hour before dinner daily. 4) Homoeopathic Mother Tincture SABAL SERRULATA Q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with the aforesaid medication few changes in your lifestyle are also necessary. Lifestyle alterations to address the symptoms include decreasing fluid intake before bedtime, moderating the consumption of alcohol and caffeine-containing products, and following a timed voiding schedule. Also it would be better if you could void the urine in sitting position.

Stomach cancers give best results when treated with a combination of chemotherapy and surgery. If its stage 1 or 2, upfront surgery is best followed by further treatment based on the pathology report. If its stage 3, it needs chemotherapy followed by surgery. You can put the details of the reports here so that we can elaborate on the management plan.

I am 34 years old active smoker. Want to know early symptoms of throat cancer. Any quick test to rule out the same.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Sore, ulceration which are long standing, lump in neck, bleeding from throat or mouth. Difficulty in swallowing, breathing etc. Throat pain esp radiating to ears. Some premalignant conditions like white patch, leukoplakia, reddish patch, erythroplakia, reduced mouth opening etc need evaluation. A detailed oral and neck examination and laryngoscopy can help you ruling out cancer.

Tobacco cancer health.

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist,
Tobacco is a cause for one third of all cancer deaths. It should be avoided. Persons who smoke should be socially ostracized as even the smoke that they exhale can cause cancer in a non smoker.

Is it possible that swing sarcoma will be cured by chemotherapy after radiation on hip joint.

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
If the tumor has not spread to any distant site then the chance of cure is high with chemotherapy after irradiation to the tumor. Send the investigations done before radiotherapy for further suggestion.

What is the main cause of cancer or tumor? Do we really know the causative agent for cancer?

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
Genetic changes that cause cancer can be inherited from our parents. They can also arise during a person’s lifetime as a result of errors that occur as cells divide or because of damage to DNA caused by certain environmental exposures. Cancer-causing environmental exposures include substances, such as the chemicals in tobacco smoke, and radiation, such as ultraviolet rays from the sun.

Treatment does not depend on size of prostate but on the symptoms you have. Start taking tamsulosin dutasteride combination tablet. Get an ultrasound of kub with post void residual volume. Depending upon your symptoms we can change the medicine but no advantage of increase the dose.

I suffer from hernia, enlarged prostate, blood pressure, colastorate. Blood pressure and colastorate are in control as I take medicine regularly. Enlarged prostate (bph) is also in control as I take dutas t regularly. May I go in for operation hernia without operating enlarged prostate.

F.mas,D.mas, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Chennai
Hi. Thanks for the opportunity to help you. From your description you are having bph and inguinal hernia. As your blood pressure and cholesterol is under control, I would suggest you to undergo both the operations in same sitting. The ideal scenario should be turp followed by open/laparoscopic hernia repair. Turp to be done by urologist followed by lap/open hernia repair as per the operating surgeon's expertise. It is essential to do a turp first as straining while passing urine predisposes to hernia formation. If hernia is repaired without turp then after surgery you might strain due to bph and you might get a recurrent hernia due to straining and again might be subjected to unnecessery surgery, post-op pain morbidity etc. If it is an uncomplicated small, reducible inguinal hernia, turp followed by laparoscopic repair in the same sitting will be ideal. However if it is a large irreducible hernia turp followed by open repair will be ideal laparoscopic repair has a distinct advantage of less post-operative pain, less intraop blood loss, short post op pain and small surgical scar and rapid healing of skin wound. Lap scar will be 1cm in comparison to 7 to 8 cm painful scar of open hernioplasty hope the consultation was beneficial regards.
