What are the symptoms of prostate cancer?(he is feeling burning sensation while urinating)

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Daear lybrate user. Burning sensation in urine may be because of infection. If you have urgency in passing uine or after passing urine you still pass drops of urine and wet your under garments or urine flow has diminished, there are sighns of prostate enlargement which could be benign as wel as malignant. For ruling it out you need a complete physical examination and followed by necessary investigations.

I am 58 years old suffering from follicular lymphoma is it a curable what is your opinion.

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
Follicular lymphoma, in general, has a favorable outcome in the intermediate term, with 5- to 8-year survival rates from 70% to 80%. The failure-free survival (ffs) rate is considerably less, however, at approximately 40%. Furthermore, there is little evidence of flattening of the survival curves with time, suggesting that relapse occurs continually over the course of many years. An exception may be the small percentage of patients who present with localized disease and are treated definitively with radiotherapy, a significant number of whom may be cured with that treatment. So prognosis depends on the stage of the disease and several other factors. Based on these factors a prognostic index has been established known as flipi. Send the investigation reports for proper assessment.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Hormonal changes from monthly menstruation can trigger cysts as well as transient inflammation/ swelling of the breasts. However, breast cysts are usually benign. Usually, before the onset of menses, the breast tissue with the larger breast often tends to swell with some amount of tenderness/ pain. But, this is often temporary and resolves automatically. Should the pain be unbearable, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate pain. Do stay well hydrated and take'amla churna' (patanjali) &'bael churna (patanjali- 1/2 tsp each with warm water, preferably before lunch daily for next 1 month. Simultaneously, keep your diet and lifestyle streamlined, you can take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, once daily. Just make sure that you keep at least 2 hours gap between any of your present allopathic medications and the natural remedies as suggested above. Its advisable that you check with your doc on how long he/ she wants you to continue with cabergoline medication. Hope this helps. Take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

My friend has breast cancer in second stage. Can she live happily without fearing about death?
She definitely does not need to think about death. Hopefully she will live long. Second stage is a very good stage. Positive thinking beats all odds. She should just be regular with her treatment and follow up.

What is the basic feature s of Cancer. How we are recognize d it & how we can remove it. Consult for its remedies.

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist, Mandsaur
What is cancer? in the most basic terms, cancer refers to cells that grow out-of-control and invade other tissues. Cells become cancerous due to the accumulation of defects, or mutations, in their dna. Certain inherited genetic defects (for example, brca1 and brca2 mutations) and infections can increase the risk of cancer. Environmental factors (for example, air pollution) and poor lifestyle choices -- such as smoking and heavy alcohol use -- can also damage dna and lead to cancer. Most of the time, cells are able to detect and repair dna damage. If a cell is severely damaged and cannot repair itself it undergoes so-called programmed cell death or apoptosis. Cancer occurs when damaged cells grow, divide, and spread abnormally instead of self-destructing as they should. Cancer symptoms and signs there are more than 100 different types of cancer. Every cancer and every individual is unique. The symptoms and signs of cancer depend on the size and location of the cancer as well as the presence or absence of metastasis. Symptoms and signs such as fever, pain, fatigue, skin changes (redness, sores that won't heal, jaundice, darkening), and unintended weight loss or weight gain are not unique to cancer, but they often occur with cancer. More potential cancer signs and symptoms include the presence of a lump, difficulty swallowing, changes or difficulties with bowel or bladder function, persistent cough, hoarseness, and unexplained bleeding or discharge.

My wife have a lump in left breast but we don't know is this a cancer or not please help me to know whether it is a cancer or simply a lump.

M.S, MBBS
General Surgeon, Bangalore
As per your question, you are aware that your wife has a lump in her breast. Going by the age, and if there is no family history of having cancer of either breast or ovary, all the probability is that it could be an harmless lump. Nevertheless, it has to be confirmed. It is suggested that you consult a surgeon for further evaluation which includes an Ultrasound of breast (to find out if any additional smaller lumps) and a cytology test if required.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. In the given context as you describe, I would advise that you minimize or avoid tea/ coffee etc all. Try cut down on sugar, salt, spicy, oily, greasy and other high calorie food stuff including fast foods. Adopt a mediterranean diet pattern instead. Stay well hydrated. You may have green tea (camelia sinesis) instead one to two times daily with no added sugar. Hope this helps. Take care and all the very best. Sincerely,
