Lie down on a mat or on the bed. Do Kapal Bhathi for 15 Minutes. But the patient has to ensure that the stroke of Kapal Bhathi is felt on the lower abdomen. This can be achieved by a little effort or training. Repeat the process a second time in the evening.

Apply hot and cold water on the point where prostrate is situated. Take a hand shower attached to Geyser and sprinkle hot water shower for 4 minutes followed by cold water shower for 2 minutes. Repeat 4 times. Start with Hot and end also with hot. Follow this twice a day.

Eat lots of Salad and fruits. Drink less water after 7 pm. Donot drink water during night time unless very thirsty. Keep your weight under control.

My grandpa has 4th stage lung cancer, he was diagnosed with it by Feb 2015, he is treated by around 10 radiation and two cycles of chemotherapy and third cycle is going on. Can some one guide me for further alternative treatment? Is there any new research or treatment for lung cancer? I want to mention that his physical condition is good and no much side effects of chemotherapy also. Also he has smoked in past. I am really thankful if someone guide me further.

DNB, MBBS

Dear sir, fourth stage cancer lung means it has spread to other organs and line of treatment is more towards palliation. Treatment also depends on histopathology and immunohistochemistry, if EGFR mutations positive then some oral treatment can also be tried. Please continue chemotherapy if his general condition is good.

You may need evaluation with rgu, ultrasound and urine culture. If any abnormality in the reports like stricture or bladder neck contracture found then you will need cystoscopy and viu or bni. In case of infection in urine then treat that first.

Pain in right breast, multiple fibroids in left breast and pain also. My maternal grandmother had breast cancer. Does this mean I have more chances of having breast cancer?

There is a possibility. But to find out you need to see a geneticist who can do a brca mutation screening so as to define the risk.

If someone has cancer in any of the part let it be adrenal cancer. And it is of first stage. Would it have affect on blood report of patient. Does it lower haemoglobin content. And what effect it would have on TLC?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
dear sir early cancers unless they are leukaemias may not effect bone marrow to cause any suppression or change in blood counts. it is only blood cancers which may cause early alteration in its counts.Adrenal cancers may effect hormonal levels so they can be detected by estimating hormonal levels.

I was not aware about the cervical cancer prevention test while I was younger. Recently my Aunty got detected with cervical cancer and I am worried about its prevention. Is there a possibility that I can prevent it by vaccine or any other way? Also, can it be hereditary? P. S- I am married.

DM - Oncology, MBBS, MD - Medicine
Oncologist, Mumbai
Yes it's right, cervical cancer can be prevented with vaccination. It is very slow growing malignancy, so it can be detected very early by screening methods. Screening is recommended from age 21 to 29 years every ear by pap smear and after age of 30 years it should be done once every three years.

As rightly advised by the other doctor, you need to take proper precautions before taking the blood sample. If its persistently high, then you need further evaluation. The symptoms you are having is because of increased prolactin levels in your body. The cause can be a small tumour in the brain, certain kinds of medications etc. An endocrinologist will help you with medicines to control the level of prolactin. If there is a treatable cause, then that should be treated by surgery.

Dear lybrate-user, it is better to have oral examination got done by competent doctor and look for any problem at the back of your tongue. Poor oral hygiene or a sore can also give rise to this problem.
