My father has cancer in food pipe at 3rd stage. We don't want to go for chemo therpahy of radiations. Is there any oral medicine to procure the diseases.

MD Radiation Oncology, ESMO Certified Medical Oncologist, DM Medical Oncology (Pursuing)
Oncologist, Mumbai
Hello, I understand that you wish simple treatment for your father due to his advanced age. However, oral medicines are given only for some symptom relief and they will not cure the disease. Also, to exactly comment the treatment required, I need to see all the reports. If at all, your family does not wish for treatment due to poor health, oral chemotherapy (metronomic chemotherapy) can be given. I need to see the reports and know his weight, height to prescribe.

Enlarged Prostate State - 7 Signs That Can Indicate it!

Enlarged Prostate State - 7 Signs That Can Indicate it!

Benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH is a condition where the prostate gland gets enlarged. This is mostly common in men who are ageing. When the prostate gland gets enlarged, the flow of urine through the urethra gets blocked, and hence, several problems related to urination may occur. BPH occurs as a result of hormonal imbalance. If untreated, BPH can lead to severe bladder and urinary health conditions.

There are several symptoms and signs of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Here are 7 common symptoms:

  1. A frequent need for urination: Men affected by BPH feel an increased need to urinate frequently. This gets enhanced during the night and is called nocturia. The patient may even need to urinate more than eight times a day. Due to the enlarged prostate gland, more pressure is put on the urethra, which leads to uncontrollable urination.
  2. Urinating difficulties: The act of urination becomes difficult. Because of enhanced pressure on the urethra, the flow of urine to the penis from the bladder gets blocked. This makes a urine stream hard to start. The urine stream gets weak and interrupted, and more difficulty may be experienced during the end of urination.
  3. Pain during urination and ejaculation: Due to pressure on the urinary tract and reproductive system, pain can accompany urination and ejaculation. Some patients tend to push urine out, which results in pain. The pain may also occur because of infection during BPH.
  4. Blood in urine and an unusual color/smell: Urine may take a dark color and have an unusual smell due to urinary retention. Unpleasant urine smell signifies urinary tract infection. Blood in the urine may also result because of dilated veins present on the surface of the enlarged prostate.
  5. Urinary retention: When a patient is unable to pass any urine, it is called urinary retention. Such a condition requires immediate treatment, and you need to consult a doctor immediately.
  6. Urinary tract infections: Bacteria may start growing in the bladder when the bladder is not fully emptied of urine. This bacterial infection causes darkening of the urine, and emission of a foul odor.
  7. Bladder stones: Bladder stones may develop because of the inability of the bladder to empty itself completely. This is a major symptom of BPH. Hard lumps of minerals or bladder stones are formed when the urine present in the bladder gets highly concentrated, which causes the crystallization of minerals. Bladder stones may cause infections, result in blood in urine, cause bladder irritation and may also block urine flow.

So you see that benign prostatic hyperplasia involves the enlargement of the prostate gland, and results in several problems related to urination and different symptoms. Hence, immediate treatment is advisable. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My wife having breast cancer and taken out complete breast through surgery at Visakhapatnam. We are shifting now to kaikalur in krishna district. Is there any hospital close to that village having facility for chemo therapy? Either in Eluru or Bhimavaram? What precautions to be taken by the patient? What will be the cost for one sitting for chemo therapy? Please suggest.

Usually we make a plan for chemotherapy and that can be taken at any local hospital, where the nurses are trained to give chemotherapy and there is a physician or medical oncologist who can manage the side effects. You can enquire at your local district hospital. The chemotherapy for breast usually includes Adriamycin + Cyclophosphamide and most of the times followed by Paclitaxel (4+ 4 cycles). Transtuzumab may be given depending on the Her 2 Status (1 year). The cost of the treatment may vary according to the centre can range from 8k to 25k per cycle. But the transtuzumab can also vary from 50k to 75k Per cycle for 1 year Some patients prefer having a port inserted to avoid the painful chemotherapy through the opposite hand, which causes thrombophlebitis. They will ask to monitor the blood counts and renal function as it can cause anemia and drop in white cell and platelet counts (increasing the risk of infection and bleeding). There would be mild nausea and vomiting for which medications would be given. Hair loss is another side effect for which wigs may be given. Some hospitals have the cooling cap which can decrease the hair loss (50-70%), but the cost and time for chemotherapy increases. Also taxanes can cause neuropathy in some patients leading to muscle weakness. I can clarify the treatment plan better if I can see the histopathology report.

USG of right breast showing large hypoechoic SOL (22*15 mm) seen at upper quadrant and one small SOL (10*7 mm) seen in lower quardant. Is it breast cancer?

M.CH - Surgical Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist, Visakhapatnam
Hi, it is most unlikely at your age to have breast cancer. Usually breast cancer presents as a single lump. I will need more features to make a diagnosis. Those sol (meaning space occupying lesions) will most likely be fibroadenomas which are benign lumps a caused by the normal changes in the breast with age. They will not turn to cancer. You can confirm it by getting an fnac done. It would be better if you consult a surgeon who can diagnose and treat it. Surgery is the only treatment for fibroadenomas, done if they are painful or large or for cosmetic reasons. Hope this helps. All the best.
