My father is diagnosed with stage 4 advanced liver cancer with primary site Pancreas (cholangiocarcinoma). Have given 4 cycles of going, and then 4 cycles of Nanopacli. After these cycles, reports and scan was done. No changes. And hence we decided to stop chemotherapy. Now, after 2 months, back pain has increased and becomes intolerable at night. What shall we do and should we continue chemotherapy? Please advice.

Oncologist,
Hello lybrate-user. I think there is some metastatic involvement of vertebrae. If this is the case chemotherapy and pain killers will not work. You should have your father's spinal CT/MRI scan done and plan for localised palliative radiotherapy to spine, as your oncologist advise.

I have a lump in my left side breast .what should I have do first. please suggest me.

B.A.M.S, M.D (Ayurveda)
Ayurveda, Nashik
Breast lumps are due to many reasons, normally we start to think of worst conditions. Although it is good to be cautious it is not good to be over cautious. Do a self examination first if the lump is mobile which means it is not fixed and moving freely then it can be a lipoma or swelling of breast glands which tells you not to worry but if it is fixed then consult a gynaecologist and surgeon best way is to Get mammogram done if it is normal you don't need to worry.

Oncologist, Kolkata
There are few points to note here the whole sample is to be reviewed to see if there is any high grade component mitosis 2-3 per hpf suggests low grade but extensive necrosis suggests high grade if the pathologist is sure it's low grade then no chemo is required if pathologist says there is a high grade component then you require adjuvant chemotherapy with three cycles of Taxanes and platinum also make sure your pre op staging and surgery was complete CA 125 also to be noted.

Skin Cancer - 10 Things That Can Increase Your Risk!

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS, PLAB
Dermatologist, Hyderabad
Skin Cancer - 10 Things That Can Increase Your Risk!

Skin cancer occurs when the DNA of the cells undergo mutations, thus causing unsystematic cell growth which evolve into a cancerous mass. This abnormality stems from the over-exposure of your skin to the Ultraviolet Radiations of the sun.

However, there are other factors too that escalate the risks of skin cancer.

  1. Fairer skin tone: Inadequate pigmentation or melanin content in the skin offers less protection against the harmful UV radiations. Having red or blond hair or light-colored eyes makes you more vulnerable to this condition.
  2. Sunburns: A history of sunburns can often be the root cause behind skin cancer.
  3. Excessive exposure to the sun: If you spend a considerable amount of time under the sun and especially if your skin is not protected by clothing or sunscreen, you tend to get a tan. A tan is the skin’s response to extreme UV radiations.
  4. Moles: Abnormally large moles, known as dysplastic nevi, are more likely to turn malignant. Watch out for any change in the texture of the moles, which is one of the most important symptoms of skin cancer.
  5. Family history: According to studies, genes are considered to be one of the causes behind skin cancer. Hence, a family history of this condition could spell trouble for one.
  6. Personal history: Having suffered from skin cancer previously in life could endanger one even more.
  7. Pre-cancerous skin injury: Skin lesions, also known as actinic keratosis, make you prone to developing pre-cancerous growths on the skin. These could appear as scaly rough patches, ranging from brown to pink in color. They usually crop up on the hands, head and faces of people who are comparatively of a fairer skin tone.
  8. A weak immune system: People having a poor immunity system, including the ones affected by HIV/AIDS or are on immunosuppressant drugs which follow any organ transplantation have greater risks of developing cancer.
  9. Exposure to radiation: Radiation therapy is an often used treatment method for treating various skin conditions such as acne and eczema. Having been exposed to radiations, one could be indisposed to this condition even more.
  10. Exposure to certain chemicals: Exposure to certain substances such as arsenic might increase your vulnerability manifold.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Is cancer spread through blood and air? How we get sure that one caught by cancer? Is it curable totally?

Fellowship InThoracic Surgery Onco surgery, DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
General Surgeon, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, cancer does not spread though blood or air, it happens in one's body. Cancer develops within the body, and is known by symptoms. It can be cured totally in most of instances if diagnosed in early stages.

Cancer - Is It Curable? Or Is It Really A Deadly Disease

MBBS, MD(General Medicine), Fellowship Hemato - Oncology (Hemat-Oncology), DM(Medical Oncology), DNB(Medical Oncology)
Oncologist, Kolkata

Cancer has become one of the common problems in the present day. 
The fact is that any one can be diagnosed with cancer at any point of time. Should we really fear once we are diagnosed with cancer. About 30 years ago even tuberculosis was deemed a deadly disease but today tuberculosis has no such stigma and gradually we have realized its curable. Similar scenario is with cancer too. We are able to cure more than 30percent of cancers. Rest 50percent we are able to have a long term control just like diabetes and hypertension. Si the take home message is get out of the stigma and realize that cancer can be cured and can have a long term disease control.
