Your father in all probability has a partial bladder neck obstruction in view of thickened bladder with significant residual urine. He needs uroflometry to determine exact nature of obstruction. Following this he must be referred to surgery (TURP) after he is cleared for surgery.

My mom had breast cancer doctor ask us that chemo without port may damage the veins but I research internet and I found that it is patients choice to have port or not, even port could cause infections. Sir Please If you can give us some advice.

Chemo port is not necessary for chemotherapy. 6-8 cycles of chemotherapy can be administered through peripheral venous access. Most of the patients are treated through peripheral venous access.

It is most probably fibroadenoma, a benign lump in the breast. It can be left alone or you can have it surgically removed.

I had taken still breast enlarging capsules for one month and stopped taking, later after two month I got lump in my left breast, the lump don't stay stuck at one place it moves up and down its been 5-6 months no cancer signs are detected. My physician detected it as lump of fats. I want to confirm that is there any side effects of still breast enlarging capsules and will it give me a breast cancer or its just a normal lump of fats.

Hello mam. Your concern is well taken. Nowadays there are many over the counter breast enlarging capsules which have the agents, not to be taken in young age. The content of these capsules varies a lot. So I would recommend you not to take such pills and also get to know the previous pills taken by you. The lump you are talking about might be a simple fibroadenoma which you can get it removed by simple small surgery. Less likely for it to be cancerous. But as recommended, the self examination and the screening will help you further from detecting such lesions. You can text me or consult me for any more clarifications.

Cancer - Are You Aware Of These 9 Common Misconceptions About Cancer?

Cancer - Are You Aware Of These 9 Common Misconceptions About Cancer?

Cancer, or the big C, is always in the news. Use any keyword related to cancer, and there is definitely information overload. Also, with more people surviving cancer, there are too many tales to tell. All this leads to misconceptions and myths, leaving people, who are looking for genuine information, completely confused. The following are some common misconceptions.

  1. Cancer is a new-age disease: There is reference to cancer in ancient Egyptian and Greek stories, so cancer is definitely not new. However, it is true that the incidence has increased tremendously with the modern lifestyle habits.
  2. Food items prevent cancer: There are claims that food items like kale, blueberries, green tea, broccoli, etc., can prevent cancer. It is not true. They do have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, but are not helpful in preventing cancer.
  3. Acidic diet causes cancer: The body’s pH is not determined by the food products that we consume. Neither acidic nor alkaline environment is healthy, and further, the body has its own mechanism to regulate pH; so go ahead and eat what you like.
  4. Sugars cause cancer: Sugar, believed to be the main energy source, is required for growth. Since cancer is linked to uncontrolled growth, it is believed that more sugar leads to more cancer. This again is a false notion, as there is no connection between the two.
  5. Screening is only for breast cancer: Agreed, breast cancer is easy to screen for, but any person with predisposition can go for periodic screening to help in early identification and intervention.
  6. Cancer medicines kill more than they cure: Whether it is chemotherapy or radiation, they do not pick only the cancer cells. When directed at a body part, the radiation affects the entire area. Chemotherapy targets and controls growth of a lot of normal processes, thereby affecting normal life.
  7. There is no cure for cancer: It is not a simple process. Curing cancer involves multiple facets – some of which may not be known or unearthed. While there are some stories, which talk about how they conquered cancer completely, there are a greater number of failures. Do not conclude on either side. Each person and each type of cancer is treated differently.
  8. Tight undergarments are not connected to cancer: As popularly advertised, tight underwear and underwired bras do not cause testicular or breast cancer.
  9. Biopsies spread cancer: This is a misconception. Most people are scared to get a biopsy as they perceive that it may spread the cancerous cells to normal areas.

This is just a short list, and there are far too many false notions. Check with your doctor to validate the information before using it to take any decision.

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