Reasons Behind Benign Prostate Hyperplasia!

M Ch Urology, MBBS, MS - Urology
Urologist, Kolhapur
Reasons Behind Benign Prostate Hyperplasia!

Benign Prostrate Hyperplasia (BPH) is a condition which results in the enlargement of the prostate gland. The prostrate grand is situated near the Urethra (a tube which helps flush out the urine from the bladder). Generally, the chance of developing BPH increases after one crosses the age of 50. But it is yet unknown as to why some men experience more severe symptoms than others.

Causes of BPH
This condition generally occurs because of old age and affects almost all men above the age of 75. It occurs because of the various hormonal changes and changes in cell growth that the body goes through, as one becomes old. Sometimes BPH can set in due to genetics. If BPH sets in due to genetically reasons, it usually is quite severe and affects men before they reach 60.

Symptoms of BPH
Quite a few men who develop BPH, experience no symptoms at all. But when symptoms of BPH, known as lower urinary tract symptoms (LUT) start, they can be either mild or very severe. The severity of the symptoms is not related to the extent of the enlargement. Many a times men with only a mild enlargement complain about severe symptoms, while men with a highly enlarged prostate gland have not complained about any discomfort faced. 

Symptoms of BPH tend to worsen due to cold weather and also because of physical and emotional overexertion. There are certain medicines, which should be avoided if you suffer from BPH, as they have a tendency to worsen your symptoms, for example diphenhydramine, pseudoephedrine, oxymetazoline spray and other antidepressants.

The symptoms of BPH are related to bladder emptying and issues with bladder storage.

Symptoms related to the urine drainage from the bladder are:

  1. Strain while urinating
  2. Weak urine flow
  3. Some dribbling after urination
  4. Sudden urge to urinate
  5. Pain while urinating

Symptoms related to storage of urine in the bladder are:

  1. Waking during the night to urinate
  2. Urinating frequently during the day and at night
  3. Sudden urge to urinate, which may be hard to control

It however, has to be kept in mind that these symptoms may not primarily occur due to prostate enlargement, but are the result of other conditions like urinary tract infections, prostatitis, prostate cancer, neurological disorders and even diabetes. Thus, it is essential that you visit a doctor and get the cause for these symptoms diagnosed properly.

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

Small movements made usually doesn't result in data loss. The machine is automised to compensate for it and if it can't will alert the technician who will redo that area if required. If you are still doubtful you can speak once with reporting radiologist.

Symptoms and Treatment of Colon Cancer

MD - General Medicine, D.M. Medical oncology

Symptoms and Treatment of Colon Cancer

Diarrhea and constipation and common digestive ailments but if these persist for over 4 weeks, it could be a sign of colon cancer. Colon cancer refers, to a type of cancer that affects the lower half of the digestive system and the large intestines. In most cases, this type of cancer begins in the form of small adenomatous polyps. However, with time, these polyps turn cancerous.

As mentioned above a change in bowel movements is one of the main signs of colon cancer. Some of the other common symptoms include:

  • Blood in the stool
  • Cramps or pain in the abdomen
  • Weakness
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • A feeling of not having completely emptied your bowel

The symptoms of colon cancer vary according to the stage of the cancer. In its early stages, many patients may not recognize any symptoms. Symptoms also depend on the location of the cancer tumour.

Colon cancer can affect men and women but elderly people are considered at a higher risk for this disease as compared to others. For this reason screening for colon cancer is considered part of a routine health checkup for people over the age of 50. Certain genetic syndromes can also increase a person’s risk of colon cancer. Additionally, a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, low fiber diet, smoking and alcohol consumption can also increase the risk of colon cancer.

Colon cancer can be treated. Treatment depends largely on the stage of cancer. There are 4 stages of colon cancer.

  1. Stage I: In this stage, the cancer would have grown through the lining of the colon but is restricted to being within the rectum and colon wall.
  2. Stage II: Here, the cancer grows past the colon walls but does not yet spread to the lymph nodes.
  3. Stage III: At this stage, cancer can be detected in the lymph nodes surrounding the colon and large intestines
  4. Stage IV: This is an advanced stage of cancer where it would have begun to affect other organs such as the lungs and liver.

Treatment for colon cancer typically takes three forms; surgery, chemotherapy or radiation.

In the case of early stage colon cancer, minimally invasive surgery may be suggested to remove the polyps and resection the colon walls. If it has turned invasive, a partial colectomy may be performed or an artificial route for waste matter may be created. In most cases, surgery will be followed by chemotherapy or radiation to kill the remaining cancer cells.

How to identify child hood cancer and how to treat this disease and the methods of preventing cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Sir sir most common cancers we see in children are leukaemias, bone or brain tumours. You must watch children for frequent headache, difficulty in Reading, change in Gait or walking style, speech, bone pains, swelling and must take a note if falling ill frequently, frequent fever, bleeding Childhood cancers are mostly genetically related due to some mutations that's why mostly we have to be watchful in early diagnosis and prevent any childhood exposure to radiation.

My maid has a cancerous lump near the anus. She had chemotherapy and radiation and according to the MRI it does not show cancer cells therein. But a very prominent doctor says to take a PET scan to see if any cancer cells persist. She does not want to have a colostomy. What should she do?

MBBS, MD-Radio Therapy
Oncologist, Ghaziabad
There are broadly two types of cancer in that area. It helps in deciding further course of action. Also its important to know current status of cancer to decide further course of treatment so accordingly investigations are advised.

Please avoid tea/coffee/soda based drinks and alcohol. Spicy and fried food should also be avoided. Do this for a couple of weeks and take tablet rabeprazole twice daily. Follow up in 2weeks.

Hi my husband just underwent oral cancer surgery followed by chemo and radiation. It's been 9 months he's also lost almost 40 kg of weight. Since his food is very limited we were asked to give him protein powder supplement. Can you recommend any protein which will give him strength and is also nutritious. He is 44 years old. Thank you.

You can go for nutritlite protein powder with green tea extract for better results. Give him antioxidants and phytonutrient rich food like broccoli, bell peppers,lime ,purple cabbage,apple and pears along with seeds. This should help him with mananging his diet.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is a genetic disease but only 5-7 %may be inherited. It is more related to lifestyle related factors like tobacco, pollution, pesticides, industrial affluent, smoke, chemicals in food, increased usage of plastics that triggers genetic changes than the hereditary factors. it's always good to be cautious.

MBBS

Unfortunately radiation treatment causes short and long term side effects. RD can damage blood vessels that nourish muscles, nerves, and bones that can result in a progressive condition called "radiation fibrosis syndrome", which causes a variety of complications affecting nerve, muscles, and bones.

There are no lumps on my breasts but they are sagging with wrinkles and tiny pores ,there is pain in my left chest since 1 week, is it breast cancer.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not breast cancer. Doing pushups may not improve the appearance of the actual breasts, but by strengthening the muscles behind the breasts, it can give your bust a slight lift. (And will be great for your back and shoulders too, of course.)

How many reason of blood cancer? Which type medicins are available for blood cancer in india? How many percentage for live patient? And please tell me Ayurvedic medicine for blood cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, blood cancer is usually caused by some mutations or change in genes which control the growth of blood cells. Blood is composed of multiple cells, rbc, wbc,platelets, plasma cells etc. Treatment depends on type of cells effected. Leukaemias have many long term survivors and is nearly curable, but one has to be tolerant enough to complete the treatment and be on regular follow up. I am not aware of ayuvedic medication.
