Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, the biopsy report is indicative of invasion to the lamina propria. But, can you doubly check with your doc if there is any invasion into the lymphatics too? so far as I know, such cases are treated with bcg vaccination, assuming there is no lymph node invasion. Additionally, given to understand that its a high grade carcinoma, there always is a high risk of metastasis despite a tur-bt surgery. Hence, the need to aggressively manage it, to the extent of even going for a full bladder cystectomy should it so demand, to help avert a futuristic metastasis and improve prognosis. Anyways, do clarify the above-mentioned through an expert second opinion with an oncologist specializing in urology cancers. From a dietary standpoint, try including more of fresh turmeric, carrots, tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, green tea (twice daily) etc all besides other leafy greens. Pomegranate juice & vitamin c (can try'amalaki') helps too in this condition. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best to you.

Hi can lymphedema arm be amputated? Lymphedema is in breast cancer survival patient.

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS

Well, technically it can be amputed. But what is really important, is whether it is really indicated and have other techniques of management been used. Management of lymphedema consists of good amount of exercises, physiotherapy, specific nutritional changes and care of the involved part. Lymphedema is graded into 4 grades. The treatment of grade 4, that is severe form of lymphedema is to remove excess tissue and resuture the defects. This causes decreased weight, swelling and functional improvement. You should talk to your treating clinicians about the surgeries for lymphedema, other than amputation.

What is the cause of bone cancer and what is its symptoms?

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist

The exact cause of most bone cancers is not known. However, scientists have found that bone cancers are associated with a number of other conditions; still most people with bone cancers do not have any known risk factors. Research is underway to learn more about the causes of these cancers what are the risk factors for bone cancer? a risk factor is anything that affects your chance of getting a disease such as cancer. Different cancers have different risk factors. Eg: exposing skin to strong sunlight is a risk factor for skin cancer. Smoking is a risk factor for cancers of the lung, mouth, larynx, bladder, kidney, and several other organs. But having a risk factor, or even several, does not mean that you will get the disease. Most people with bone cancers do not have any apparent risk factors. For example children with certain rare inherited syndromes have an increased risk of developing osteosarcoma. Chordomas seem to run in some families. The genes responsible have not yet been found, but familial chordoma has been linked to changes on chromosome.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, it may not be oral cancer yet. I would advise that you get this clinically examined by an experienced dentist. If in doubt still, you can always connect with a head and neck oncologist for 2nd opinion. Additionally, please continue with your good habit of staying away from tobacco products. Streamline your diet and lifestyle, and maintain a good oral hygiene. You can take green tea, twice daily. Hope this helps. You can connect for a suitable naturopathic traction should it require anytime. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely.

The best way to rule out any underlying problem is to get full body check up done first and then if there is no problem in reports, focus on exercising everyday and eat healthy food.

If you r of 19 years age then a nodule in breast most probably is gynecomastia. You may get a fnac done of that nodule to confirm the diagnosis. If it is indeed gynecomastia then no need to worry about although for cosmetic reasons it may be removed surgically.

Hi, darkening of the skin on the forehead is not a symptom of skin cancer. It may be due to compression over the area due to your cap or helmet etc if you use them. Please consult a skin specialist if any of the above don't apply. You nay have to use some cream or ointment for a temporary period. Hope this helps. Take care.
