Prostate symptoms can be managed by medicines but if medical treatment is not reliving surgery is the only option. But cause of prostatomegaly should be evaluated first. Psa levels should be checked, clinical examination of prostate should be done. Ultrasound prostate should be done. If these findings indicate chances of cancer then proatate biopsy has to be done before deciding the treatment direction as treatment of cancer and non cacerous conditions differ significantly.

Spicy food, smoked salmon and fish, lots of chilli, apprehensive people are more likely to develop ulcers. There is a bacteria helicobactor pylori also responsible for both ulceration and cancer. Ulcer is simply breach in mucosa, whereas cancer is abnormal growth which may spread to other parts also.

In all probability she can note be considered cured of cancer, but as a precaution, just keep doing annual follow ups and annual mammography of the opposite breast as a safeguard.

Painful lumps in your age group are quite common. Nothing needs to be done to them if they are small. However examination by a surgeon should be sough to endorse and confirm the diagnosis.

Bladder cancer is the result of the growth of cancerous cells inside the bladder. Bladder cancer is mainly of four types:
1. Urothelial carcinoma: In this type of bladder cancer, the tumours may be limited to the bladder or spread from the urothelial to the deeper layers in the bladder. The urothelial is the epithelium lining in the renal pelvis, ureters, urethra and bladder.
2. Squamous cell carcinoma: Squamous cells are flat, thin cells that form after a prolonged infection in the bladder. The cancer starts from these cells.
3. Adenocarcinoma: Glandular cells in the bladder produce and discharge mucus. This type of cancer begins from the glandular cells.
4. Superficial bladder cancer: If the cancer is limited to the bladder lining, then it is known as superficial bladder cancer. The cancer might spread to the bladder muscle wall, or spread to the lymph nodes and organs close to it.
It is important note that, if bladder cancer is detected early, then it can be cured most of the times.

Who is at a risk of acquiring bladder cancer?
Those who smoke or have a history of bladder cancer in the family or are exposed for to industrial chemicals for long durations are at an increased risk of bladder cancer.

The symptoms of bladder cancer include:
a) Blood in urine
b) More frequent passing of urine
c) There is a sensation of pain or burning when urinating
d) Bladder is not emptied completely
e) Pain in the lower back

Bladder cancer treatment by conventional medication can be complemented by Ayurveda; especially, with the Panchakarma therapy, which detoxifies the body. Detoxification can be done by:
a) Snehana therapy that is oil massage
b) Swedana that is steaming therapy
c) Vamana that is by urging vomiting
d) Virechana that is by purging
e) Basti is the enema medication
f) Nasya or through nasal medication
g) Raktamokshana Therapy

Along with the above mentioned therapies, consuming medicated juices, which contain fruits and vegetables is good for the body. Antioxidant Ayurvedic medicines are also highly beneficial. Practicing yoga, sound therapy, pranayama, acupressure and acupuncture can help in the long run.

Sometimes, traditional cancer medication can rob the body of its strength once the symptoms are cured. Rasayan Chikitsa can help the body regain its strength. Rasayan Chikitsa improves the metabolism, memory, longevity, hair and complexion. It brings back the vigour that was lost.

It is not necessary for you to have cancer if your relative has it and whenever there is local involvement than it is stage 1 and if there is local lymphadenopathy than we can call it as stage 2 and if it has spread to other parts of the body we can call it as stage 3.

Generally prostate related problems causing urinary dysfunction are diseases of elderly. You can get your ultrasound kub and urine analysis done to rule out cause of outlet obstruction it may be a stone or some kind of inflammation. If above are normal you can get psa checked. If it is prostatitis it can be treated by antibiotics under supervision of nephrologist, don't worry.
