While I urinate sometimes my urine flow is weak other time it is absolutely normal. Specially when I wake up in the morning. And sometimes when I terminate my urination few drops dribble downwards. Nor always but sometimes. I don't wake up in the night to urinate. Do I have any prostate problems? I am just 22 years old. I have done urine test. It's normal.

Hello doctor, I have 2 questions for you. 1) Please tell me whether there is a cure for cancer and 2) If there is no cure for cancer as of today then how many years are required to find a cure (approximately). Please give your opinion regarding the cure of cancer and methods to fight cancer in the absence of the cure. Also tell me the precautions that are to be followed in order to avoid the cancer from occurring in our body for example caring our body, exercises, food habits, activities etc. With this I end my query. Thank you.

You must have read: cancer is curable if detected early. Main issue is ignorance. People think taht there is no cure for cancer and keep on waiting till last stage when their sufferings increase to an extent that nothing great can be done. Even if you ignore some simple infection it can become dangerous for life. People and society should remove the stigma associated with cancer. Below I am giving you bries of different treatment modalities for cancer cure: cancer treatment is now a multidisciplinary management in which different surgical, medical and radiation oncologist plan treatment protocol for best possible chances of cure. Advancement in all these fields and their contribution in comprehensive management results in 25-30% improvement in cure rate over previous decades. Surgery: involves surgical principles to remove tumor with adequate margins and possible draining lymph nodes regions. Improvements and understanding of surgical principles even make resection of distant disease or cure of stage iv disease in some selected cases. Chemotherapy: cytotoxic drugs are given either in injectable or oral forms which acts on uncontrolled cancer cells. Advances in this fields results in drugs with better efficacy and less side effect profile and at same time resulting in better cancer control. Targetted therapy acts on specific pathways of cancer growth. Hormone therapy targets specific hormone receptors for controlling the cancer. Radiation therapy: is delivery of radiation generated by radioactive source over the region of cancer. More and more advances in radiation technologists are emerging like imrt, sbrt to focus radiation over the specific location so as to avoid toxic effect over surrounding area.

Please rule out osteoporosis by doing a dexa scan and check vit d levels. If any of above are abnormal then you can correct it by supplementation, other wise disk prolapse needs physiotherapy or surgical correction.

What is the difference between malignant tumor and benign tumor and a cyst forming in the jaw is harmful to what extent and can be identified as benign or malignant and what is the diagnosis in each case?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS

A benign tumor does not spread to distant organs and may be locally damaging alone. On the other had, a malignant tumor, may spread to different parts of the body and may become life threatening. A cyst in the jaw can definitely damage the jaw bone and hence needs to be addressed surgically. Te definite nature and diagnosis can be exactly commented only after the surgery but one may get a working diagnosis with an FNAC

Tobacco is a cause for one third of all cancer deaths. It should be avoided. Persons who smoke should be socially ostracized as even the smoke that they exhale can cause cancer in a non smoker.

You need not worry about ejaculation if the fluid content is less. Ignore it. However, for the prostate must take lot of fluids in day time & restrict fluid late evenings & night so that you are not disturbed at night.

If you want a definitive treatment and you are fit for a major surgery go for a major surgical procedure (pancreatico-duodenectomy). If you want only relief of obstructive jaundice go for ercp and stenting (cbd), this is a endoscopic procedure.

Dear sir, cancer is abnormal uncontrolled growth of cells caused by some faulty gene which control the growth of cells. This faulty gene may be due to some injury to genes by chemicals, tobacco, radiation exposure, adulterated food, viruses, pollution, faulty food habits Etc. Currently available treatment modalities are surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy etc depending on organ affected, and stage of the disease. We can prevent by avoiding known carcinogens, healthy eating habits, exercise and go for regular health screening. this disease is dangerous due to unpredictable nature and nature of relapse post treatment.

Today is the world cancer day and the theme of this year is "we can, I can." Yes we all can battle the cancer. But the irony is that majority of women ignore early signs and symptoms of cancer and do not consult doctors in time. And even some of these cancers are preventable if proper action is taken

Ovarian cancer
What will you do if you feel gaseous distension (gas, bloating), acidity, constipation, change in bowel habit, decreased appetite, feeling of full stomach, weight loss and abdominal swellling? majority of the women ignore these symptoms and take antacids before it is too late. But these are often symptoms of early ovarian cancer and thus if you ignore these symptoms, you are harming yourself. Ovarian cancer is difficult to treat if detected at late stage. But in early stage, it is curable. So, don't ignore these symptoms.
Who are the women at risk of ovarian cancer- women who are not having baby, who themselves or close relatives (sister/ mother/ daughter) had history of cancer in breast/ ovary/ bowel/ uterus etc. But some women are at lower risk like those using oral contraceptive pills- ocp (- the birth control pills can reduce the risk by 50%) and who had tubal ligation (permanent family planning methods).

If you had such risk factors, you must not avoid any such above mentioned symptoms. Rather you should consult gynecologist early. Ovarian cancer can be detected by ultrasound, ct scan, some blood tests (ca 125) and some cases biopsy may be needed. And remember, majority of the ovarian diseases are not cancer but you must be sure that it's not cancer causing your problem.
If ovarian cancer is diagnosed, the treatment is surgery (to be done by expert personnels) and most of the women need chemotherapy.
Ovarian cancer is common in elderly women but it can afect younger women also. So, all the women should take care of the above mentioned symptoms

Cancer of cervix: cervix is the mouth of the uterus. In our country, this is the commonest cancer in gynecology affecting women whereas it is uncommon in the western countries. The irony is that women die of this disease whereas it is totally preventable

It is caused by a virus (human papilloma virus- hpv) that is sexually transmitted (so afects sexually active women). But it has a peculiar feature that before cancer actually occurs, there is precancerous stage- when the cells of cervix shows some changes that we can detect and treat. So, if women regularly consult doctor (when they do not have problems), we can check if she is at risk of cervical cancer or not, by some simple tests (pap smear, hpv testing etc). Is such changes are found (that is not cancer) we can treat her so that she does not develop cancer. These method of detection, before disease occurs or before an individual feels that she is having disease, is called" screening.
Another method of preventing it is vaccination of hpv, that should be given to the adolescent girls before they become sexually active. Even it can be given in older women (who are sexually active), although the response is somehow lower than if given at early age. But vaccination is not alternative to screening. So, both screening and vaccination should be done to prevent this cancer.
Even if detected at early stage, it is totally curable. So, women should not ignore symptoms of excessive vaginal discharge (remember, all excessive discharges are not due to cancer), abnormal or heavy menstrual bleeding, bleeding occuring unredictably in between menstrualtion, bleeding after intercourse etc.
It is treated by surgery and some cases may need radiation also.

Cancer of uterus
Cancer of uterus is common after 50 years of age (although can occur at early years also). It is the commonest gynecological cancer in the western world. It mainly occurs in women who are obese (excessive weight), having diabetes or hypertension (high blood pressure), not having any baby, who are having personal or family history of cancer in uterus/ breast/ ovary/ bowel.

It can be prevented by taking ocp (birth control pils) and controlling weight. In many cases, it is also preceeded by some precancerous changes (hyperplasia) that can be detected by ultrasonography and if needed small biopsy procedure.

The common symptoms are abnormal heavy bleeding and bleeding after attaining menopause (after totall stoppage of menses). So, any abnormal menstrual bleeding must be properly investigated.

It is usually well curable if treated early- by surgery and in few cases, may need radiation, chemo or hormone therapy.

Cancer of vulva: the external genitalia of female is known as vulva. Cancer in vulva is relatively uncommon but still it can happen, especially those who are having diabetes, hiv positive or those having poor hygiene.

Never ignore any symptoms of excessive itching in your private parts. It may be the early symptom of vulval cancer. Some cases, patient may have ulcer or tumour or bleeding.

It can be detected easily by examination by doctor and then taking biopsy. It is treated well with surgery and some cases, radiation may be needed.

Summary: majority of the gynaecological cacers are preventable. They can be diagnosed early if women consult doctor at early stage. Majority of them respond to treatment.

Hello. Your psa. 84 is normal. I want know your prostate size and post void residue as per usg report. Without it & clinical examination treatment cannot be decided. Frequent urine can be caused by multiple problems. If usg not done thn kindly get it done along with urine routine & microscopy. Get back to me after getting investigations. Ayurved may help you but medications can only prevent further increase in prostate size.
