How to avoid cancer?

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist,
Avoid smoking, alcohol, tobacco in any form. Do regular exercises, maintain ideal weight, add fruits and vegetables in your diet. If working with chemicals take proper and recommended precautions try taking organic food vaccination for hepatitis b should be taken. For ladies hpv vaccine should be administered. These are some habits which will help but there is no 100% way to avoid cancer.

Moderately differentiated locally infiltrative adenocarcinoma without lymph node involvement and metastasis (t3n0m0) proves it is a slowly growing cancer. But because the size is big and local invasion has occurred. There is always a chance that some seedlings might have spread which are so small that can not be seen now. Being of microscopic size. But may show up in due course. Hence I opine that you opt for chemotherapy and stay under close followup. Trying other branches of medicine will remain open at any instance. But chemo is the need of the hour.

Dear lybrate user, painless lumps in breast have to be immediately evaluated. Cancer is one of the possibilities. The best way to find out is to have an fnac test done from the lump. I would advise you to consult a surgeon immediately.

Angelina jolie effect
Angelina jolie effect

Angelina jolie's revelation for her family history of cancer and brca mutations has really benefitted genetic labs, who are getting more and more requests for brca testing from doctors and patients.

The point which everyone is missing out on is that not every patient with breast cancer requires this test. Another important thing which is being left out is the pre-test counseling, which highlights the implications of a positive and negative test.
In India, the test has to be offered judiciously because indian ladies will not readily agree for bilateral mastectomies or salpingo-oophrectomies, if the test comes positive.

It is best to consult your breast onco-surgeon or genetic counselor before ordering these tests.

Chemotherapy can cause nausea so you should take less spicy food. Also you should avoid food which can cause infection. Take freshly prepared food. Avoid fast food at unhygienic place. Take food rich in proteins. Take high calories and low residue diet as there may be loss of appetite.

I have a question. Self sex can developed ovarian cancer and abnormal menstruation.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
I have a question. Self sex can developed ovarian cancer and abnormal menstruation.
Self sex or masturbation cannot cause any ovarian cancer or abnormal menses sexual urge is a natural instinct. In such a scenario when one gets aroused its natural to go for masturbation. During masturbation one just releases the sexual urge in harmless manner. Menstrual cycle is not related to sexual urge so masturbation doesnot cause any change in the body and hence canot cause cancer or affect menses.

The kind of lumps you are mentioning is mostly due to fat collection like lipoma and they are benign if soft in consistency. But still you must see clinician once to be exactly be sure of it.

What is a cancer. What are it is symptoms. How it is so critical disease. How can we prevent it. At which stage it is dangerous. Why cancer is a silent killer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is a disease which is caused by abnormal growth of cells due to fault in the genes which control the growth of the cells. This is critical due to its unpredictable nature of spread and uncertain prognosis. It affects one organ, destroy it's function, spread to other other then multiple organs may be affected causing it's failure. Generally four stages are there, fourth being most dangerous. It is a silent killer as most of its symptoms are ignored in early stages and by the time it's diagnosed it is mostly late.
