symptoms of cancer depend on the site where it arises. If its a throat cancer, there may be difficulty swallowing, change in voice, pain during swallowing sometimes, etc. Lung cancer may present as unresolving cough with expectoration, weight loss, loss of appetite, etc. Usually cancer is higher in smokers.

It is high. There is no treatment for'reducing psa' a high psa means you should get further evaluation to find out the cause. Generally it is associated with cancer or inflammation of the prostate. Treatment will depend on the result of this evaluation.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, multiple myelomas are a kind of cancer which effects plasma cells of bone marrow. Presenting as punched out bony lesion. There is no specific diet plan to kill abnormal plasma cells and one must take complete course of chemotherapy as advised by your doctor. Simultaneously diet which enhance immunity like whole grain, vegetables soups and certain fruits may be consumed. One must keep a track of kidney functions and if deranged then diet plan must be modified accordingly.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, you may require a few more investigations apart from the ones mentioned above. I would advise that you visit a neurologist who can clinically examine you and rule out any possibility of neuro-degenerative disorders that may have triggered a bladder dysfunction. Last but not the least, possibility of any sleep related disorders, especially sleep apnea, needs to be ruled out too. For the time being, however, you may follow certain simple disciplines like going to bed on time, not taking water just before you retire to bed, ensure that you do urinate once properly before you get to sleep. Also, adjust your room temperature, avoid making it too cold. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.

DNB, MBBS

Dear sir, you must quit tobacco first of all as nearly 40 % cancers may be related to tobacco. You must get yourself thoroughly checked by a physician For any ulceration, lump, chest xray, ultrasound, psa, CEA, stool for occult blood, Routine urine and ENT evaluation. All these are mostly included in cancer preventive health packages.

How the cancer cells produced in our body can be destroyed without the help of cemo?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cell grow in our body and are routinely shed off as they grow old and replaced by new cells. This production and shedding off is regulated by genes which control it's number. Whenever this becomes disbalanced then production may be more than shedding off and cells grow uncontrolled. This may be due to faulty genes which is triggered by some carcinogens like tobacco, pollution, pesticides, industrial affluent, radiation exposure, viral infection etc Cancer is treated by combination of surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy etc.

My father has a tumor in their food pipe. Which is about 25 to 35 cm. Can you please suggest me what can we do.
He needs the following tests 1) barium swallow (not advised by many doctors nowadays but has its own utility) 2) endoscopy for biopsy 3) ct scan of the chest. This will help staging the disease. If it is early stage, then upfront surgery can be done. If its locally advanced then first chemoradiation is given followed by surgery. Please show it to a surgical oncologist near you or any of us surgical oncologists on the forum.

I am kumar, male, aged about 56 years and residing in chennai. I am suffering with digestive disorders such as lack of appetite, indigestion, severe underweight, malnutrition, slight watery stools, rapid graying of scalp and facial hair, eczema on face, constipation, and a feeling of heaviness in the stomach. I had undergone endoscopy 4 times and colonoscopy once and RUT test. Nothing was revealed except gastritis, IBS, non specific proctocolitis and GERD. I had undergone stool tests on 4 0ccasions but only once giardia lamblia was detected. Even stool culture test did not reveal anything. Is there any test to determine nature of microbiota in the intestine. I am severely under nourished and underweight. I do not feel like taking food. One gastro doctor at chennai suggest for cat scan of abdomen. I am afraid to undergo this test as I am scared of exposure to radiation. Can any one suggest some good probiotics and probiotics to cure this nuisance disease permanently. Will chronic giardiasis of long duration cause cancer? Can any good doctor advice me a good and permanent cure. Thanking you,

What are the symptoms of of cancer? From five days I was suffering from wooophing cough is that a chance of cancer? I have habit of smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may have what is called a 'smokers cough'. But since you are worried I suggest you can go for a test by consulting your doctor. For the symptoms of cancer: Lung Cancer Signs and Symptoms (Sourced from Medicinenet.com) Lung cancer is the most common cancer in men and the fifth most common in women, even causing more cancer-related deaths in women than breast cancer. The incidence of lung cancer is strongly correlated with cigarette smoking, with about 90% of lung cancers arising as a result of tobacco use. Symptoms of lung cancer are varied dependent upon the exact location of the tumor and the extent of its spread. A person with lung cancer may have the following kinds of symptoms: • No symptoms - Up to 25% of people who get lung cancer do not have any symptoms when the cancer is found. In these cases the cancer is first discovered on a routine chest X-ray or computerized tomography(CT) scan performed for another reason. • Symptoms related to the cancer - The growth of the cancer and invasion of the lung and surroundings may lead to symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, chest pain, and coughing up blood (hemoptysis). If the cancer has invaded nerves, it may cause shoulder pain that travels down the outside of the arm (called Pancoast syndrome) or paralysis of the nerves traveling to the vocal cords that leads to hoarseness. Invasion of the esophagus may lead to difficulty swallowing (dysphagia). If a large airway is obstructed, collapse of a portion of the lung may occur and cause infections (abscesses, pneumonia) in the obstructed area. • Symptoms related to metastasis (spread to other organs) - Lung cancer that has spread to the bones may produce excruciating pain at the sites of bone involvement. Cancer that has spread to the brain may cause a number of neurologic symptoms that may include blurred vision, headaches, seizures, confusion or altered thought processes, or symptoms of stroke. • Paraneoplastic symptoms - Lung cancers frequently are accompanied by so-called paraneoplastic syndromes that result from production of hormone-like substances by the tumor cells that are released into the blood. A common paraneoplastic syndrome associated with one type of lung cancer is the production of a hormone called adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) by the cancer cells, leading to over secretion of another hormone, cortisol, by the adrenal glands (Cushing's syndrome). • Nonspecific symptoms - Nonspecific symptoms seen with many cancers, including lung cancers, include weight loss, weakness, and fatigue. It is important always to consult a doctor if a person develops the symptoms associated with lung cancer, in particular: • A new persistent cough or worsening of an existing chronic cough • Blood in the sputum • Persistent bronchitis or repeated respiratory infections • Chest pain • Unexplained weight loss and/or fatigue • Breathing difficulties such as shortness of breath or wheezing My advise to you is to quit smoking whether you have any of the symptoms or not. Smoking is just very dangerous to your health.

There are some cancers which run in family, like colon cancer, breast cancer, gastric cancer, uterine cancer. There is one condition called Lifraumeni syndrome which can also run in family. So without making any prior investigation it's very difficult to say.
