I have in-large prostate since last 10 years and taking one Alfatam-D tablet regularly since then. Controlling urination sometimes becomes very difficult when pressure built up. I become restless. Why is this so? Please advise. Anand Kumar.

Dear, enlarged prostate causes the bladder muscles to work harder to push urine out. Over a long period of time, this leads to thickened bladder wall and overactivity of bladder muscle. Once overactive bladder develops, it can act spontaneously without our voluntary control. This is the common reason for not able to control urine in prostate enlargement. Other reasons are bladder stone or infection. Please get an ultrasound abdomen with post-void residual urine. Based on prostate size, bladder wall, residual urine, serum psa and urine routine examination findings, a urologist will be able to treat you better. If you do not have much residual urine, infection or stone, then you can be started on drugs to relax bladder (anti-cholinergics). This will help you with improving the control of urination.

Lybrate-user ji. Prostate problems are frequent at your age. Please get investigated in detail for your urinary complaints. If you suffer from benign hypertrophy of prostate, which is the commonest cause then there are medications with which you can delay the operations. But the effect is temporary to bring relief. Surgical removal of prostate is the only curative solution to bhp. In case there are other causes please visit a urologist/ urosurgeon.

First do the D & C you will get to know for sure that its cancer or not. Dont worry before the test as even if its cancer its curable as it will be a small tumor only, and if its non cancer then you need not go for any treatment, so do the test first.

It could be any number of causes from simple infection to tb to any cancer. (though cancer would be the last option.) in india, tb is much more common. Please show it to a surgeon. He may start you on antibiotics if simple infection is suspected or take a biopsy or remove the whole node for pathology examination and that will help plan further treatment if other diseases are suspected.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking clarification. Well, blood cancer is characterized by uncontrolled growth of the cells of either the lymphatics system or of the cells in the bone marrow. It could present with one or more of the following symptoms - bones/ joints pain, swollen lymph nodes, fevers, night sweats, fatigue/ weakness, tendency to bleed easily, frequent infections, loss of weight/ appetite etc all. The treatment varies basis the type of cancer one is suffering from, apart from other aspects. Your haemato-oncologist can best clarify the treatment protocol/ approach as would be appropriate contextually. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. First & foremost, I would advise that you visit your doc, in person, for a clinical breast exam first. Your doc, post evaluation, would be able to recommend the steps next, appropriately. In the meanwhile, do have a healthy and balanced diet, preferably Mediterranean, and have an active lifestyle. Do exercise, de-stress and relax on a daily basis. Stay well hydrated too. Should it pain, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate the same. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.

Sir prostate enlargement can be benign or malignant. It needs evaluation by serum psa levels, sonography, and transrectal multiple core biopsy for confirmation. If it is benign can be started on some medications or else treatment as per the diagnosis.

Who is the best doctor and hospital for treatment of breast cancer in Chandigarh ? Should one take the treatment in chd or go to Delhi ?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear, in spite of many modalities available treatment of breast cancer is controversial. Before hand take the advice of a senior doctor of the field for the best possible treatment. The younger present day doctors will advise you first the removal of the breast when it has been seen that removal of the breast is not necessary.

My sister age 49 operated for ovarian cancer in may 2015 than six cycle of chemo ended in oct 2015 ca .ca125 in july was 120 .now it is 8600. Pet is ok.

Rise in Ca-125 is a worrying factor. I am surprised the Pet-CT is normal. I think one of the 2 reports is wrong. Get the Pet-CT re-reported. Get Ca-125 repeated. If still same reports wait for a month and get Ca-125 repeated. If coming down or normal-then nothing to be done. If rising further chemotherapy with or without Pet-CT.

the kind of tumour needs to be confirmed by fnac /biopsy and the staging of tumour by pet ct then only any radical treatment can be planned because tumour of eyes don't go to axilla, so the primary tumour may be lying some where else.

Treating Skin Cancer with Photodynamic Therapy

BHMS, PG Diploma In Clinical Cosmetology (PGDCC), MD - Homeopathy

Treating Skin Cancer with Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic therapy or PDT is a relatively new and non-invasive treatment for non melanomaskin cancer. It is mostly used in cases where the cancer is superficial and has not spread too deep. PDT is used mostly to treat Actinic Keratoses on the face and scalp, Basal cell carcinomas, Bowen’s disease, as well as other conditions such as head and neck, mouth, lung and gullet cancer.

How does it work?
This treatment involves the use of a drug known as photosensitize or a photosensitizing agent with a specific type of light. When the photosensitizing agents get exposed to a light of a specific wavelength, a form of oxygen is produced, which eliminates nearby cancer cells. Every photosensitizer gets activated by the special light. The wavelength of the light determines how much it can penetrate into the body.

Process of Photodynamic therapy
Skin cancer is cured by PDT in several steps. The first step involves the injection of a photosensitizer into the patient’s bloodstream. The blood cells absorb the agent all over the body, but in the cancer cells, it stays for a longer duration. Within 72 hours after the injection is given, the skin is exposed to light. The photosensitizer agent present in the cancer affected cells absorbs the light. An active oxygen form gets produced, which kills the cancer cells.

Other than killing the cancer cells directly, PDT uses two other ways to destroy cancerous tumors. The blood vessels in the tumor are affected, which leads to its death. The immune system also gets charged up and activated for fighting the cancer cells.

The light used for PDT is usually in the form of a laser. LEDs are also used to treat tumors present on the surface of the skin. The primary photosensitizing agent used in PDT is called porfimer sodium or Photofrin.

PDT can be undertaken in the outpatient department in a hospital. After taking the treatment, you have to keep the cancer affected area of the skin dry and covered for 36 hours. The area should be treated with care while showering. In case of thick skin lesions, repeat treatments are required within 4 weeks.

When is PDT used for skin cancer
PDT can be undertaken instead of surgery for treating basal cell cancer, Bowen’s disease and actinic keratosis. PDT is used in cases where surgeries are required. It is used to treat large skin cancers, which are not very deep and in the case when several cancers develop in an area. For many skin conditions, PDT is a better remedy than undergoing a surgery.

Advantages of PDT

  1. There are no long term side effects.
  2. The process is less invasive compared to surgery.
  3. A very short time is taken for this therapy to be undertaken.
  4. The process can be repeated several times in the same area.
  5. Very less scarring takes place in the affected area.
  6. The cost of this procedure is lesser than surgery.

No. Mere presence of nodule on teticles does not lead to testicular cancer. However if you are anxious, get an usg of scrotum done.
