Dear sir, It is not necessary that you may get genital warts as it depends on the hpv strain warts are usually associated with 6and 11. However since this is sexually transmitted disease you must be careful and use proper precautions like barrier methods or condoms while having sexual contact. Genital warts most often are self limiting and if they don't can be treated by local application or by ablation. If you suspect some lesions near your genital area, must see doctors dermatologist or venerologist.

Things You Can Do for a Healthy Prostate

The prostate gland is a male reproductive organ at the base of the urinary bladder and urethra is a thin tube that carries urine out of the penis. It runs through the prostate gland. A fluid produced by this gland helps to carry sperms produced by the testes outside during intercourse.

Following things can be done for maintaining a healthy prostate:

Eat fruits and vegetables: Including fruits and vegetables in your diet can help to maintain a healthy prostate. Guava, papaya, tomato and watermelon are some of the options that spell good for your prostate. Vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels sprouts should also be included to boost the health of the gland. Ideally, you should have about 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily.
Have selenium-rich foods: Having foods rich in selenium (a powerful trace mineral) like tuna, eggs, cashews, onions, garlic, etc can reduce your risk of developing prostate cancer.
Workout to stay fit: Exercising regularly and maintaining an optimum weight can help to keep your prostate gland at an optimal health. Several types of research have revealed the beneficial aspects of exercising. It's said that physically active men are less likely to suffer from enlarged prostate if they performed a physical activity of low to moderate intensity. Likewise, physically active men who ran for 90 to 108 minutes are 20% less likely to develop erectile dysfunction.
Have more soy products: Eating more soy products like tofu, soy flour, soy nuts can help to keep cancer of the prostate at bay. A study published in the British Journal of Urology International revealed that men who had soy products saw a 40% decrease in their risk of developing an enlarged prostate.

Dear mam, neck node or lump in neck is may be one of the signs of cancer, but there may be other causes aswell especially if it is painful than it is more likely to be inflammatory. You need to see ENT surgeon to evaluate clinically and prescribe antibiotics. If he finds it suspicious then he will advise fnac from the lump to be more sure of the cause.

Dear sir, there is no specific cause of blood cancer. It may be caused by some mutations or change in gene sequence which may lead to uncontrolled growth of one of the components. This mutation could be due to any kind of injury like radiation exposure, chemicals or may be some environmental factors. Blood cancers are treated by chemotherapy with or without bone marrow transplantation.

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.

Dear sir, you can go for annual cancer screening by getting yourself thoroughly examined By a clinician for any obvious lump, ulceration, prostatomegaly or any suspicious visible or palpable finding. You can do radiological investigation like chest xray, ultrasound abdomen. You can get blood checked for various cancer markers like PSA, CEA etc and routine blood, stool, urine examination. Depending on symptoms sigmoidoscopy and laryngoscopy can be done.

It may be an ulcer or could be some pathology. Visit your nearest dentist. If required biopsy can be done.

The exact nature of the tumor cannot be assessed only by a scan. If it is painful it is better to get the tumor removed and send it for biopsy. Only this will give us the exact nature of the tumor. If there is no pain you may keep getting frequent scans to see how the tumor size is growing and act accordingly.

My mother, aged 78, has been diagnosed with ca pancreas with liver and peritoneal metastasis. She has gross ascites, which is presumed to be due to the malignancy. She had developed jaundice about 2 months ago and underwent ERCP / MRCP with introduction of stent in the CBD, which was blocked due to a growth. Doctors have advised against chemotherapy and suggested a palliative approach with symptom management. Considering this, is there any way the quality of life can be improved by home care etc.

Dear lybrateuser, -to take care of your mother is very important for which you can employ a professional nurse, but she will require your support as well as other family members & friends support as managing such a patient all alone is a difficult task -start by making a list of the tasks & dividing the tasks among you, other members, friends, professional help -you should be proactive that means taking charge & planning to prevent last minute emergency -on your part communicate with her, check on her stock of medication, arrange appointments with the doctor, accompany her there -focus on her emotional, physical, spiritual needs -be positive, set a routine for her & encourage her to follow it as far as possible -keep her involved in activity in whatever way you can.
