Probably she is having depression, So consult a Psychiatrist. For cancer follow up do check up every 3-6 monthly for 5 years as chance of recurrence is more in first 5 yrs.

How Do I Know if I Have Prostate Cancer?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, DNB (Urology)

How Do I Know if I Have Prostate Cancer?

Only men have prostate gland and it surrounds that part of the tube which carries urine out of the body from the bladder. When cells in this gland start growing without any control and get clumped with each other, they form tumors. It is then the chances of prostate cancer arise in the men's body. These tumors can be malignant, and they can kill the healthy tissues of your body and spread to other body parts. 

Chances of getting prostate cancer
The chances of getting prostate cancer are among men who are over 65 years of age. The ratio of getting prostate cancer is one among six men. It is more common in black men compared to white men, Hispanic men and Asian men. Moreover, when there is history of prostate cancer in your family, the chances of having prostate cancer increases.

Now, let's find out the symptoms that will let you know that you may have prostate cancer.

Symptoms of prostate cancer
There are different stages of prostate cancer and depending upon the stage you can get to know various symptoms. 
However, the problem is that in the early stages there are no specific symptoms of prostate cancer. Certain urinary symptoms may suggest that you are suffering from prostate cancer. Such symptoms are: 

  • Frequent urination
  • Difficulty with starting urine flow
  • Urination that burns
  • Blood in the urine
  • Weak flow, or 'dribbling'

These symptoms always do not mean that you are suffering from prostate cancer, as these symptoms may be there when your prostate gland gets enlarged. 

Another symptom associated with prostate cancer is pain in different parts of the body. When the cancerous cells spread they cause pain around the prostate gland. There can be pain in the hips, pelvis, and lower back or upper thighs. 

Prostate gland also plays a major role in the male reproductive system. Thus, if there is any sexual dysfunction, there are chances that it may be due to prostate cancer. If you are having a problem in getting an erection or maintaining it also becomes difficult, one problem can be prostate cancer.  Sometimes you may experience painful ejaculation, which also points towards chances of having prostate cancer. 

Thus, if you experience any of the above mentioned symptoms, its right time to get to your physician. Remember that as there are no early symptoms, the moment you find any of these symptoms, you should pay a visit to your Doctor.

Long term use of painkillers can cause kidney cancer

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Long term use of painkillers can cause kidney cancer
A study published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine has shown that people who regularly take painkiller drugs like ibuprofen or naproxen are 51 percent more likely to develop kidney cancer. There is no increased risk from taking aspirin or paracetamol. The mechanism through which painkillers could cause kidney disease is the inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis with resulting papillary and tubular injury, and ultimately damage to DNA.

The study analyzed data from 77,525 women in the Nurses’ Health Study and from 49,403 men in the Health Professionals Follow–up Study. The risk was related to the duration of use of the painkillers. There was a decrease in the risk by 19% if the painkiller was used for less than four years. There was a 36 per cent increase in risk of kidney cancer for people who used them regularly for 4 to 10 years. The risk increased almost three times for those who used these drugs regularly for 10 years or more.

The good news is that kidney cancer is uncommon so the risk is small for average users.

Two other important causes of kidney cancer are obesity and smoking. So people on painkillers should not smoke and should also keep their weight under control to prevent kidney cancer.

What is cancer? How to control and prevent from these disease and how to control smoking?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled growth of cells. They are triggered by some carcinogens like tobacco alcohol pollution pesticides radiation exposure industrial affluent etc, one has to avoid known carcinogens, regular exercises and eat healthy food with fruits and vegetables. For control of smoking determination is very important and there are nicotine gums and patches which assist in quitting.

DNB, MBBS

Dear sir, blood cancer needs to be treated by chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant if needed. Treatment would depend on the type of blood cancer and some other parameters so you will have to be under care of hemato oncologist in your region. You have many good hospitals in your vicinity like nims, yashoda, indo American, mnj etc so please be under their care and if suitable they will advise you for transplant.

My uric acid level is 7 mg/dl and I have a toffi in my left toe. My BP is normal and am not taking any medicines for anything at the moment. I try to keep my uric acid level withi check by having low protein diet. I also walk a lot on regular basis. My questions are: 1. What should be the medicines and precautions for Prostrate for me? 2. What should I do to bring my cholesterol levels back within normal ranges? 3. Should I start medicines for Uric acid too?

for prostate there is no precaution we all will have enlargement of prostate after 60yr, its good that you are maintaining a healthy life style, walking a lot, restrict your diet to avoid any kind of sweet and oily food to bring down your cholesterol and yes you should start medicines for your increased uric acid level, consult an urologist.

Since yours is an operated prostate, chances are that urinary symptoms are due to bladder dysfunction. But, this situation is not entirely untreatable. You need tolook for infection by doing urine-R; Rule out poor emptying of bladder by checking the bladder by ultrasound aftet patient has passed urine. Most of the urologist are able to instirute some medicinal treatment under the situation. If not 100% relief, the patient is likely to get reasonble degree of relief.

Does it make sense to get a comprehensive check done for cancer markers once you reach the age of 50?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is a disease predominantly of age group beyond fifty years and most often by this age the natural immunity to fight cancer goes down and the likelihood of getting cancers increases. hence this the actual age where the comprehensive cancer screening becomes a must and tests like PSA, CEA , need to be done along with head and neck examination, chest x ray, ultrasound abdomen,stool and urine examination ,CA125 ,pap smear and mammography( in females,) should be done.

How to I identity the skin cancer before it come. And is that a spreadable disease.

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
growth of the skin. It starts from cells that begin as normal skin cells and transform into those with the potential to reproduce in an out-of-control manner. Unlike other cancers, the vast majority of skin cancers have no potential to spread to other parts of the body (metastasize) and threaten your life. it does not spread to other parts of the body. no danger to lifee. thanks
