Hi I am 50 year old female with a history of breast cancer and taking tamoxifen 20 mg daily for past 4 years. December 2015, I took an abdomen scan and the endometrial thickness was 8 mm. But last week july 2016 the thickness increased to 14 mm. Am I having cancer of endometrium? Other symptoms for the cancer are missing. Should I go for an Hysterectomy? Please advice.

Mam, nothing to worry. This is a common side-effect of tamoxifen. It is usually associated with heavy bleeding. If you do have bleeding please get a d & c done by a gynaecologist. Please have regular follow-ups for cancer breast. All the best-you will do well. Regards.

No need to worry. Just take simple analgesic like paracetamol 2 times per day. Also apply ice over affected area.

She needs a proper evaluation by a breast surgeon or a surgical oncologist, which entails a history and clinical examination with a mammography and an ultrasound if not done already. Mammography gives an idea about the whole breast and Opposite Breast. I prefer a core Biopsy, which gives an idea about the grade, type and immunohistochemistry of cancer, which is important for getting an idea about the prognosis and deciding the line of treatment. (I am not comfortable operating based on FNAC as it has false negative’s aswell as false positives) If Cancer is locally advanced or some times in large operable wanting breast conservation surgery or some early Breast cancers which are Triple negative or Her 2 +ve, then upfront chemotherapy is preferred before surgery. If locally advanced or > 5 cms then we prefer doing a pet scan or a CECT abdomen and pelvis with a bone scan to rule out spread of cancer. Surgery for the breast may be lumpectomy or a mastectomy. Axillary surgery may be sentinel node biopsy or an Axillary nodal clearance. If conservation then the reconstruction could be with oncoplasty which approximates the Breast tissue to prevent deformity (but leads to smaller breast if large lump excised and needs mammoplasty of that breast as well as reduction of Opposite Breast), or using the latest chest wall perforator flaps (new technique to avoid deformity or reduction of breast size especially after a large lumpectomy in a small Breast, which I have learnt in UK and is becoming quite popular there as the size of both breasts remains same) After the surgery, chemotherapy is given (if not given before or courses not completed) the type of chemotherapy or targeted therapy varies according to the report. All lumpectomy and mastectomy for large and node positive cancers need radiation therapy too, which is given after the chemotherapy. Also depending upon the immunohistochemistry, targeted therapy (transtuzumab) May be advised for 1 year and hormonal therapy for 5-10 years. The follow up would be with annual mammogram, clinical examination with some blood tests. If found to be metastatic then treatment would be mainly chemotherapy and hormonal therapy, with surgery for good responders or in cases of bleeding, where radiation is the other option. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to share the reports or discuss this further.

Sir, My uncle is suffering with cancer and he is unable to take food directly from mouth. So, recently he got operated and put hole on the left side of the stomach. We are thinking of put stunt in the neck so that he can swallow the food. But we don't know where to go to the hospital where this treatment is available. Can I get any suggestions as early as possible because his condition is serious. The surgery would be within a budget as we are very poor farmers.

If stent was feasible then why was not it done before doing the Feeding gastrostomy? If he is incurable and Gastrostomy has already been done and you are not affording for surgery, I would advise not to go for the stenting as it is a costly intervention. I am presuming it's an advanced inoperable or metastatic disease, hence a Gastrostomy was done. If it is a locally advanced disease then we recommend Neoadjuvant chemoradiation or neoadjuvant chemotherapy and then the patient can undergo surgery. Stenting is preferred to Gastrostomy, but is costly. If you want to share the reports and discuss further management, then you are welcome to contact me directly.

Weight loss and positive biopsy report and with local symptoms are few things considered to be labeled as cancer and tip- I will suggest you to take a shower with warm water or just wash your face, forearms, legs with soap and water at bedtime for a peaceful sleep.

Can’t prescribe medicines on this site. You might suffering from haemorrhoids or fissure in Ani. You can take green leafy vegetables and high fibre diet with 3-5 litre of water every day.
