Sir, one has to adapt to a simple and healthy lifestyle for prevention and treatment of cancer. Lifestyle should include healthy food, fruits vegetables obtained from organic sources, exercise, avoiding fatty and junk food, avoiding preservatives, fresh food, avoid tobacco alcohol pollution pesticides radiation exposure etc. During treatment care is even more stringent.

Hi dear - in my view - she can be saved if she is given cancero -- medicine course- 6 months. Its package is available, details as per below;;-- --there will be no need or little need of other therapies ------------------------------------------ --curative treatment;- it will be the future medicine of cancer for the whole suffering world. -tibetan therapy--medicine -cancero - course is the best treatment available so for, with almost 100%--results. It is a newly entrant in the field of oral medical cancer therapy, and is available with very few tibetan experts only. Most of doctors are still unaware of its use. With no side effects, it can be used both as preventive as well as curative in all types of cancers/ tumors. Its 6 month course or so is sufficient to cure cancer of any type, at any stage, provided the patient is able to take medicines orally. It converts cancers into tumors and then cures. It can be used alone or in combination with other therapies, if cancer is in advanced stage. It has been successfully used in children as small as 6 months age and old persons -73 years old. -its pack is available in 3 forms;- -cancero-th+, cancero-thu+, cancero-thua+ -cancero-th pack is available @ rs 5000/- pm. For very low budget patients.

My friend has lump in her breast. What should she do? And also advise what is the way to get out from this problem besides any surgeries.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Kanpur
Most probably its a benign lump if her age is less than 30 years. But she should get examined by a surgeon to confirm it. Also the only cure for lump is surgery. But indication for surgery depends upon its size and symptoms caused by it.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, oral cavity mean oral part of tongue, floor of mouth, buccal mucosa, hard palate etc. They are primarily treated by surgery. Further they may be given radiation therapy, chemotherapy etc depending on histopathological reports. Cure rates depends on initial stage of presentation, earlier the disease better are the cure rates. Chemotherapy are the medicine given either intravenously or orally used to kill cancer cells.

Treating Lumps and Pain in Breasts of Women

Treating Lumps and Pain in Breasts of Women

Feeling a lump on your breasts can be a terrifying moment. 'Cancer' is the first thing that comes to mind but in reality, most lumps in the breast are not caused by cancer. Apart from cancer, breast lumps can be caused by non-cancerous growths, injuries and infections. The only way to correctly diagnose the cause of a lump in the beasts is through a biopsy. Hence, this is the first step towards treating a breast lump. From here on, treatment will depend on the cause identified.

Mastitis or Breast Infection

Mastitis is a painful infection of the breast tissue often faced by women who are breastfeeding. It can be treated with heat treatment and antibiotics. Massaging the breast while taking a warm shower or applying a warm compress. This will open up the milk ducts and should be followed by nursing the baby or using a breast pump to relieve the swelling and pain.

Abscess

Antibiotics are the first line of treatment against an abscess but this is effective only if given in the initial stage of the infection. In later stages, an abscess will need to be surgically drained.

Fibroadenomas

This is a non-cancerous tumour often found in young women. It is often difficult to distinguish between a Fibroadenoma and a cancerous tumour and hence these are usually surgically removed.

Fibrocystic Changes

In some cases, the breast itself is composed of knotted, rope like tissue. This is known as having fibrocystic breasts. If a new lump presents itself on fibrocystic breasts, a mammogram and an ultrasound are performed to evaluate the lump. In most cases fibrocystic changes do not require any medication or surgery.

Breasts Cysts

Cysts can be defined as fluid filled lumps. In some cases, these cysts become apparent at the time of ovulation and disappear after the period. In other cases, it may need to be drained with a thin needle. Cysts often recur and need to be re-drained.

Fat Necrosis and Lipoma

Fat necrosis is a lump caused by an injury to the fatty tissue in the breast. Lipoma is a fatty growth within the fatty tissue. In both these cases, no treatment is required but if it causes any problems, it can be removed.

Breast Cancer

If the biopsy reveals the presence of a cancerous tumour, you must immediately consult an oncologist. Treatment options for breast cancer include chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and hormone treatment.

Hello, lipomas has to be dissected if it is interfering your day to day life. There is no cure with medicines. Better to get FNAC test done and consult a good general surgeon for proper management.

Hi First quit smoking. Kindly give detailed history, from how long you smoke, no of cigarette per day. There is no need for screening to detect cancer. Lung cancer is most common in smokers. To detect lung cancer do chest x-ray. Take antioxidant diet.
