My dad is suffering from GI junction cancer with liver Mets from Feb 2016. Had 3 cycle of chemotherapy where his numbers and size of tumours reduced by 30 percent. Then after 2 more cycles it reduced by more 50 percent. Then in the month of December it increased by 33 percent. Again dctr advised for chemo. After 3 cycles it reduced slightly but pleural effusion and ascites are seen. Again after 3 cycle secondary cancer increased. Pleural effusion increased. Ascites increased. My question how after chemo cancer is increasing? What are the chances of survival here.

HI lybrate-user, As per your history disease of GI Junction with Liver metastasis, I Presume you want to say about GE junction, Post 2 lines of Chemotherapy and progressive. The overall picture is not happy, it will be advisable to meet the surgical Oncologist if I assume the ascites and pleural effusion is not disease related. If Ascites and Pleural effusion are disease related, which is more a possibility as per case scenario, there are limited options. One vital option would be targeted therapy, with Herceptin if not already instituted in case of Her 2 +ve cancer. Overall with limited information, I feel the picture is quite gloomy. Having said that, ultimate power is GOD, so don't lose hope and Keep fighting. Good luck.

Hi Doctor, I would like to know as to how to prevent cervical cancer naturally. Many thanks for your suggestions/ advice here. Sincerely,

MBBS, DNB ( Radiation Oncology)
Oncologist, Mumbai
Cervical cancer can have many causes like early sexual exposure, multiple sexual partners, multiple child births and HPV virus infection. Women should undergo regular pap smear tests for early detection and cure of cervical cancer. Also There is a vaccine available which helps in preventing cervical cancer caused due to HPV virus infection.

Ovarian Cancer - Symptoms And Treatment

Ovarian Cancer - Symptoms And Treatment

Ovarian cancer takes place when the cells in either of your ovaries have an abnormal growth. The ovaries are two small organs, situated on either side of your uterus. They deliver female sex hormones and store and discharge eggs (ova) that help a woman reproduce. Ovarian cancer is a serious disease that emerges from various sorts of cells and growths inside the ovary.

Specialists do not know precisely what causes ovarian cancer. Hereditary qualities, for example and other DNA changes, are a danger element for few ladies. Around 10 out of 100 ovarian cancers are thought to be brought about by quality transformations in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes. Women who go through changes due to these carrier genes are more at risk of contracting ovarian cancer.

The earliest symptoms of ovarian cancer are as follows:

  1. Frequent bloating in the uterus or stomach area.
  2. Pain in your pelvis or belly.
  3. Inconvenience while eating, or feeling full quickly.
  4. Urinary issues, for example, a critical need to urinate or urinating more frequently than expected.

The disease is usually suspected after an ultrasound suggests an ovarian cyst with a specific appearance. If there is a suspicion of ovarian cancer on ultrasound, you doctor may ask for a blood test for markers like CA-125, CEA, AFP, etc.

Treatment options for ovarian cancer:

The decision of treatment and the long-term result for ladies who have ovarian cancer relies upon the sort and phase of cancer they are in. Your age, general wellbeing, personal satisfaction, and wish to get pregnant should be considered. The primary treatment methods for ovarian cancer are:

  1. Surgery to see whether you have cancer or not and to treat it. This may include taking biopsies to check for the spread of cancer.
  2. Chemotherapy, which uses medications to kill the cancerous cells. It is suggested after surgery for most phases of ovarian cancer.
  3. Women who are in a more progressive stage of ovarian cancer may have a portion of their chemotherapy before surgery and whatever is left of it after surgery. This can make the surgery more secure for these women.
  4. Radiation treatment might be utilized to pulverize the cancer cells with the help of high-measurement X-ray beams or other high-vitality beams.

Side Effects of Treatment Methods:

Most medications for ovarian cancer cause reactions. They may vary, depending upon the kind of treatment, your age and general well-being. Reactions of surgery rely on the degree of your surgery and spread of the disease. In case your specialist removes your ovaries, you lose the capacity to bear children with your own eggs. The option of egg freezing should be discussed before resorting to this step. Furthermore, if both ovaries are removed, it leads to menopausal symptoms.

Symptoms of chemotherapy may incorporate loss of appetite and weight, queasiness, fatigue, vomiting, nausea and hair loss.

One should get regular or annual check-ups done to see if there are problems in any parts of the bodies since natural symptoms of cancer are only visible after a certain stage. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

My uncle got diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma 4 months back, then he underwent whipple surgery for the same on 24th of march, then nhe developed a complication in between. His chemotherapy started in AIIMS 2 weeks back with capecitabine 1500 mg twice daily for 14 days, the doctor there also advised for radiotherapy first but then when we went to take the appointment for the same doctor told us its late now for radiotherapy, so we are quite confused for the future course of action, and need some advice.

MD - Radiothrapy
Oncologist, Mumbai
Chlangiocarcinoma the first treatment of choice is surgery. Complete resection is feasible only in 20% cases and hence most cases with positive margins, sub-total resection and positive nodes require postoperative chemoradiation to achieve local control. Though most oncologists give chemotherapy and keep radiation as reserve option. So in your case radiation can be given if it is only a loco-regional disease.

Is lungs cancer and blood cancer communicable? Are they transform when food and water is shared with cancerous patient.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
No sir, cancer is not a communicable disease, it's absolutely safe to share food and water, though we like to advise adequate hygiene for cancer patients as they are immunocompromised and likely to catch infections fast, so one should not share food, but this is to prevent infection, not for prevention of cancer spread.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. You seem to be depressed. First and foremost, I would advise you to meet up any experienced psychologist in person, asap. He/ she shall be able to listen to you in detail and also counsel you therapeutically. Subsequently, you can also meet a marriage counselor who may help you sort out your issues appropriately. Simultaneously, do take care of your diet & lifestyle. Have a healthy and balanced diet, with fresh and juicy fruits at least twice daily, and stay well hydrated. Do exercise daily for at least 30 minutes. Walking, in open air, is the safest as well as the best should you have no other health related constraints. Early morning yoga, pranayam and meditation shall also help you keep focussed, relaxed and help you connect with yourself better. It would facilitate face things, as they come, with ease and also enjoy every moment of your life by being able able to give your best, irrespective. Life is indeed a beautiful gift of God, and I would advise you to remain mentally strong, believe in yourself, and have faith and hope that there always is light at the end of the tunnel, however dark the tunnel may appear to be. If possible, a trip to some hill station or some scenic natural place with plenty of greenery can help you relax, rejuvenate, feel blessed, think clearly and have a fresh perspective. Hope this helps. Do take care, and I wish you all the very best.

Hello, if clump is there since 10 years without increasing then it must be fibroadenoma. But it will be advisable to get surgical consultation and ultrasonography of breast done.
