Dear sir, cancer starts from one organ and gradually spreads to others and then to the whole body effecting it's functions.

dear sir,for upper third of esophagus the treatment of choice is radiation chemotherapy as surgery is not technically possible. Because of his advanced stage he is advised radical radiation therapy which is a correct line of treatment. you can also get a PEG or gastrostomy done for temporary feeding as radiation to this region may cause esophagitis and difficulty is swallowing but of course it is not mandatory.

I'm 29 years old. I have fat balls under my skin. May be they called neurofibroma or a some thing how to get rid of them is surgery the only remedy. Please let me know.

Skin is a very vital organ of your body as it protects your body from external injuries and also helps in regulating your body temperature. The gradual development of cancer cells on your skin region is known as skin cancer. Skin cancer is a very common disease that is affecting people worldwide. Many causes are responsible for skin cancer.

Some of them are stated as follows-
A) overexposure to sun rays. The ultraviolet rays can cause serious damage to your skin that can lead to cancer.
B) sun burns may also result in the development of cancer cells
C) frequent exposure to toxic chemical substance can also trigger skin cancer.
D) a frail immune system may also contribute to skin cancer.
E) certain scars on your skin, if left untreated, may become cancerous and eventually lead to skin cancer.
F) consuming unhealthy foods and being unhygienic may also lead to skin cancers.

Skin cancer may develop all over your body or on any particular region of your skin. It can spread to other parts of your body rapidly. The symptoms of skin cancer depend on the type of your cancer.

Some of the common symptoms of skin cancer are as follows:
I. A sore on your skin that cannot be healed
Ii. Swelling of your skin
Iii. You may also get an itching sensation frequently
Iv. Appearance of bumps
V. Bleeding of the affected areas
Vi. Appearance of reddish spots
Vii. A bleeding mole

Skin cancer is absolutely curable if treated at an early stage. Ayurveda offers effective remedies for treating skin cancer.

They are mentioned below:
1. Panchakarma therapy is the most effective treatment for healing skin cancer. It involves purification and removal of harmful toxins from your body through its 5 constituent therapeutic treatments namely, vamana, virechana, nasya, basti and raktamokshana.
2. Drinking green tea can be very helpful. It is known to have anti cancerous properties which help prevent and combat this killer.
3. Including more of citrus food in your diet such as lemons, oranges; excluding oily, fried foods and cutting down on higher quantities of sugar can prove to be beneficial.
4. Applying turmeric paste on the affected areas may help you to guard against skin cancer.

You must not ignore skin cancer and seek advice from a doctor as early as possible since the process of metastasis (spreading of cancer cells to different spots of your body) is very rapid in this case.

See there are many antibiotics to control this kind of infection. But their effect depend upon type of bacteria which caused infection there. You should have to do urine culture and sensitivity testing. After that we can decide which antibiotic has to administer.

No mam, only disproportion due to adherence of breast tissues to chest wall or enlargement of breast due to lump is suspicious. Some amount of natural disproportion is usually present in some females. Look for any lump or thickening. Since you are young you can get an ultrasound done to look for any small lump or lesion.

DNB, MBBS

Difference in size of both breasts may be natural if it is from the beginning. But if the asymmetry has become recently then it needs to be evaluated. Pain in breast if it is cyclical that means increases when periods are nearing is normal due to edema or swelling of breasts. Restricting salt intake and hot fomentation helps. You can also take evion and primosa which may help in reducing inflammation of ducts. Sports bra or proper breast support helps.
