I am kumar, male, aged about 56 years and residing in chennai. I am suffering with digestive disorders such as lack of appetite, indigestion, severe underweight, malnutrition, slight watery stools, rapid graying of scalp and facial hair, eczema on face, constipation, and a feeling of heaviness in the stomach. I had undergone endoscopy 4 times and colonoscopy once and RUT test. Nothing was revealed except gastritis, IBS, non specific proctocolitis and GERD. I had undergone stool tests on 4 0ccasions but only once giardia lamblia was detected. Even stool culture test did not reveal anything. Is there any test to determine nature of microbiota in the intestine. I am severely under nourished and underweight. I do not feel like taking food. One gastro doctor at chennai suggest for cat scan of abdomen. I am afraid to undergo this test as I am scared of exposure to radiation. Can any one suggest some good probiotics and probiotics to cure this nuisance disease permanently. Will chronic giardiasis of long duration cause cancer? Can any good doctor advice me a good and permanent cure. Thanking you,

How to prevent cancer in early stages? And also suggest which foods are given strength and energy for suffering with cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, easiest and most effective way to find cancer in early stages is by regular self examination. Since we know our body the best, it's best to spend some time on monthly basis to look for any obvious changes, any lump or any abnormalities. Do consult doctors annually to look for any potential problems even if we don't have any symptoms. Coloured fruits and vegetables, adequately cleaned by either lime water and vinegar or diluted potassium permagnate to remove pesticides and artificial colours help.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. You seem to be depressed. First and foremost, I would advise you to meet up any experienced psychologist in person, asap. He/ she shall be able to listen to you in detail and also counsel you therapeutically. Subsequently, you can also meet a marriage counselor who may help you sort out your issues appropriately. Simultaneously, do take care of your diet & lifestyle. Have a healthy and balanced diet, with fresh and juicy fruits at least twice daily, and stay well hydrated. Do exercise daily for at least 30 minutes. Walking, in open air, is the safest as well as the best should you have no other health related constraints. Early morning yoga, pranayam and meditation shall also help you keep focussed, relaxed and help you connect with yourself better. It would facilitate face things, as they come, with ease and also enjoy every moment of your life by being able able to give your best, irrespective. Life is indeed a beautiful gift of God, and I would advise you to remain mentally strong, believe in yourself, and have faith and hope that there always is light at the end of the tunnel, however dark the tunnel may appear to be. If possible, a trip to some hill station or some scenic natural place with plenty of greenery can help you relax, rejuvenate, feel blessed, think clearly and have a fresh perspective. Hope this helps. Do take care, and I wish you all the very best.

Ovarian Cancer - Symptoms And Treatment

MICOG, DRM, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG), DNB, MD, MBBS
IVF Specialist, Delhi
Ovarian Cancer - Symptoms And Treatment

Ovarian cancer takes place when the cells in either of your ovaries have an abnormal growth. The ovaries are two small organs, situated on either side of your uterus. They deliver female sex hormones and store and discharge eggs (ova) that help a woman reproduce. Ovarian cancer is a serious disease that emerges from various sorts of cells and growths inside the ovary.

Specialists do not know precisely what causes ovarian cancer. Hereditary qualities, for example and other DNA changes, are a danger element for few ladies. Around 10 out of 100 ovarian cancers are thought to be brought about by quality transformations in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes. Women who go through changes due to these carrier genes are more at risk of contracting ovarian cancer.

The earliest symptoms of ovarian cancer are as follows:

  1. Frequent bloating in the uterus or stomach area.
  2. Pain in your pelvis or belly.
  3. Inconvenience while eating, or feeling full quickly.
  4. Urinary issues, for example, a critical need to urinate or urinating more frequently than expected.

The disease is usually suspected after an ultrasound suggests an ovarian cyst with a specific appearance. If there is a suspicion of ovarian cancer on ultrasound, you doctor may ask for a blood test for markers like CA-125, CEA, AFP, etc.

Treatment options for ovarian cancer:

The decision of treatment and the long-term result for ladies who have ovarian cancer relies upon the sort and phase of cancer they are in. Your age, general wellbeing, personal satisfaction, and wish to get pregnant should be considered. The primary treatment methods for ovarian cancer are:

  1. Surgery to see whether you have cancer or not and to treat it. This may include taking biopsies to check for the spread of cancer.
  2. Chemotherapy, which uses medications to kill the cancerous cells. It is suggested after surgery for most phases of ovarian cancer.
  3. Women who are in a more progressive stage of ovarian cancer may have a portion of their chemotherapy before surgery and whatever is left of it after surgery. This can make the surgery more secure for these women.
  4. Radiation treatment might be utilized to pulverize the cancer cells with the help of high-measurement X-ray beams or other high-vitality beams.

Side Effects of Treatment Methods:

Most medications for ovarian cancer cause reactions. They may vary, depending upon the kind of treatment, your age and general well-being. Reactions of surgery rely on the degree of your surgery and spread of the disease. In case your specialist removes your ovaries, you lose the capacity to bear children with your own eggs. The option of egg freezing should be discussed before resorting to this step. Furthermore, if both ovaries are removed, it leads to menopausal symptoms.

Symptoms of chemotherapy may incorporate loss of appetite and weight, queasiness, fatigue, vomiting, nausea and hair loss.

One should get regular or annual check-ups done to see if there are problems in any parts of the bodies since natural symptoms of cancer are only visible after a certain stage. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Hey doctor I am somya I am 34 year old married woman and I have cervical cancer please tell me doctor.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, if you suffer from cervical cancer, don't worry, it's a curable disease. Please get yourself examined and staged by oncologist and according to stage they will provide treatment like in very early stage it could be surgery and in little advanced stages it would be chemo-radiation therapy. Both are good options and curable to great extent. Do not run away from treatment as the chances of cure reduce as the stage is increased.

Go for sonography whether it is testicular or not. If it is testicular swelling you may require more investigation like tumour marker to rule out malignancy (cancer).

Meri mummy ke berest cancer hai or 2nd stage hai or doctor ne bola hai inke 2 operation ho sakte ak pura breast nikalna hai ya berest mai jo tumer hai usa nikalne mai bhi thik ho sakta hai dono operation ka result same hai iske liya advice chaiye ?

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
The two operations are 1. Mastectomy- whole breast along with the tumour is removed 2. Lumpectomy- only the tumour with some normal surrounding breast is removed in case of mastectomy, if the tumour is small (<5 cm) and axillary lymph nodes are negative, then usually no radiotherapy is given. But in case of lumpectomy, it is usually followed by radiotherapy. In both situation the survival remains same. The biggest advantage of lumpectomy is psychological as the breast is not totally removed.

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.

Hi Pawan definitely this period problem can be solved. however first the cause must be found out. IN your case there are 2 possibilities, pregnancy and hormonal disturbance due to Ipill. I suggest you repeat the test again but with an early morning sample of urine for accurate results. if still negative we can start with medicines to resume her periods.

Radiation mucositis is a common problem / side effect during radiation . It results in pain which decrease oral intake of food and fluids. A step ladder approach of analgesics is advised and if required a ryles tube is also inserted through nose. In your case you should check whether your father has normal serum sodium and potassium levels as lower levels can cause altered sensorium. Thanks.

What are symptoms for cervical cancer and how to prevent it? Is vaccination available for this?

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist, Mandsaur
What is cervical cancer? Cervical cancer is cancer of the cervix, which is the lower part of the uterus or womb. Persistent HPV infection, usually with certain high-risk types of HPV, can cause abnormal cells to develop on the cervix. Regular Pap tests can detect these abnormal cells at an early stage, when they can usually be treated quickly and easily. Without regular Pap tests the abnormal cells may remain undetected and could develop into cervical cancer, usually over many years. Treatments for cervical cancer can include surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The best way for women to protect themselves against cervical cancer is to have the HPV vaccine when aged 12–13 years, and then have regular Pap tests once they are 18, or 2 years after first sexual contact, whichever comes latest. So women who become sexually active at 21 should have a Pap test at 23. The incidence of cervical cancer is more than two times higher in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women than non-Indigenous women and the mortality rate is five times higher than in non-Indigenous women. Although cervical cancer is the most common type of cancer caused by HPV, the virus is also known to cause vulval, vaginal, anal and mouth/throat cancers in women. What are the risk factors of cervical cancer? Almost all cases of cervical cancers are caused by HPV; persistent HPV infection is the biggest risk factor for cervical cancer. For women, additional factors may contribute: Smoking: this can increase the likelihood that HPV will persist in the body. Sexual partners: the more sexual partners a person has, the higher their risk of contracting different and more types of HPV. However HPV exposure can occur the first time a person is sexually active, and in people who have only had one partner. Early age at first intercourse. Not having regular Pap tests: this means that abnormal cells caused by persistent HPV infection may remain undetected and untreated, and develop into cervical cancer – usually over many years. Other sexually transmitted infections: women with genital herpes or Chlamydia are more likely to develop cervical cancer. This may be due to the inflammation of the cervix associated with having these infections. This is another reason to practice safe sex, including always using condoms. Long term use of the Pill: being on the Pill for many years is associated with a higher risk of cervical cancer. The risk returns to normal after stopping the Pill. This might be due to the hormones in the Pill producing a favourable environment for the virus or because women on the Pill are more likely to be sexually active. Early age of childbirth. Weakened immune systems: People who are immunocompromised (for example, people with HIV or AIDS, organ transplant recipients, or people who are taking medication that suppresses the immune system) are at an increased risk of genital HPV infection. Condoms offer some, but not total, protection from HPV, as they don't cover all of the genital skin. They do offer protection from many other sexually transmitted infections though, and help prevent unwanted pregnancy. Search Main menu The HPV vaccine A vaccine called Gardasil has been developed which can significantly decrease your child's chances of developing HPV-related cancers and genital warts. Over 187 million doses of the vaccine have been safely given, in over 130 countries. The vaccine protects against the two high-risk HPV types (types 16 and 18) which cause 70% of cervical cancers in women and 90% of all HPV-related cancers in men. It also protects against the two low-risk HPV types (types 6 and 11) which cause 90% of genital warts in men and women. The vaccine is given in three doses over six months, as an injection in the upper arm. Go to the The HPV vaccine program section for much more information about the vaccine.
