Hi lybrate-user, I appreciagte you seeking help. First and foremost, I would advise that you stay cool and not be overly anxious. Gynecomastia does not mean breast cancer. It is a benign enlargement of the breast tissue triggered mostly by hormonal imbalance, the exact underlying cause of which needs to be ascertained. You should visit an endocrinologist and get this clinically examined in person. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your friend's mother. Well, given to understand that its a last stage breast cancer, a cure may not be guaranteed at this juncture. Moreover, in advanced stage cancers, likelihood of complications developing is high and she would require palliative care support preferably in a medical / hospital setting. However, in the context that she has financial constraints, she may approach either 'Indian Cancer Society' or any other NGO or organizations (operating in the field of cancer care/ support), for help. At the same time, she can also try out integrative/ stand-alone treatment with alternative medicines which can be of help too in rendering palliative support, and treatment as would befit contextually. I declare no conflict of interest as I state the above-mentioned. Do take care and all the very best.

I am a 24-year-old girl. I have one lump in my left breast for over a year now. I got a mammography test done last year and it showed the lump was benign. But it is still there. What do I need to do to dissolve the lump? Please, advise.

MBBS, DNB - Surgery, Fellowship in Breast Surgical Oncology
Oncologist, Gurgaon
Dear lybrate-user, First I would like to advise you that mammography is not indicated in your age group. USG breast is the investigation of choice. If nature of lump was benign then nothing to worry unless it is increasing in size or causing you pain or you are more concerned aesthetically. In all cases surgery is the only way you can get rid of it.

Sir, what are the main causes of cancer. How can we defence it. What are the remedies. Can you help me.

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist, Mandsaur
Cancer Causes Certain genes control the life cycle – the growth, function, division, and death -- of a cell. When these genes are damaged, the balance between normal cell growth and death is lost. Cancer occurs due to DNA damage and out-of-control cell growth. The following is a partial list of factors known to damage DNA and increase the risk of cancer: Genetic mutations (for example, BRCA1 and BRCA2) Environmental exposure to UV radiation, air pollution Bacterial (H. Pylori) and viral infections (Epstein-Barr, HPV, hepatitis B and C) Lifestyle choices (poor diet, inactivity, obesity, heavy alcohol use, smoking cigarettes and tobacco use, exposure to chemicals and toxins) Treatment with chemotherapy, radiation, or immunosuppressive drugs Cancer Treatment Cancer treatment is highly variable depending on the type and stage of a cancer as well as the overall health of the patient. The most common treatments for cancer are surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Other treatments include targeted/biological therapies, hematopoietic stem cell transplants, angiogenesis inhibitors, cryosurgery, and photodynamic therapy. Every cancer treatment has potential risks, benefits, and side effects. The patient and his or her care team, which may include an internist or other specialist, surgeon, oncologist, radiation oncologist, and others, will help determine the best and most appropriate course of treatment.

I have listened that falling of hair is one of the symptom of cancer. Is it really the only symptom by which we can regonize it? What are the early symptoms or starting symptoms for recognizing cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Falling of hair is not the symptom of cancer. It can be caused by some chemotherapy drugs, which is also temporary. Cancer can present as lump, ulceration, abnormal bleeding from anywhere, weight loss, abnormal bleeding or periods etc it depends on area effected. As a female you should go for monthly self breast examination five days after the periods are over and be aware of any abnormal symptoms which is not going after routine medication then you must consult your doctor.

My sister is suffering from breast cancer please guide us now till day she had already 3 chemo therapy completed in a nursing home in kolkata now doctor says operation is required what can I do please give me advice.

Oncologist, Howrah
Primary treatment for breast cancer is surgery. However if the tumor is inoperable initially, neoadjuvant chemotherapy is used to downsize the tumor for operable. After a few acycle of chemotherapy the tumor gets smaller in size and surgery can be performed immediately. So in your case if the tumor is operable, go for surgery.

What is cancer? What is the main reason of cancer? Is cancer is curable? What all medicines we have?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of cells, usually caused by some abnormal mutations or change in genes which control the cell growth. This is usually caused by some carcinogens like tobacco, pollution, pesticides, radiation exposure etc. If diagnosed one has to get it treated by surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy etc and cure depends on the stage of presentation, histopathology and biology of disease.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your mother. Given to understand that her cancer is now metastatic, I believe her oncologist is doing the needful to deal with complications and help her out suitably. Her present symptomatology, as you describe, is most probably owing to the cancer's spread to brain, and may as well be due to the treatment side effects. Her oncologist, nevertheless, can best decide on the palliative measures/ treatment as is contextually appropriate in her case. I would advise to not stop any medication without her oncologist's concurrence as it may worsen her condition still. Please do have a structured discussion with her oncologist, discuss all her present concerns and proceed as recommended. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely

Generally the treatment of Hodgkin's Lymphoma is Chemotherapy for 4 to 6 cycles followed by Radiation if indicated. Chemotherapy is generally given once in every 2 weeks as day 1 and day 15 which forms 1 cycle. You will need to do PET CT in between to reassess the response to treatment. Please consult online for more information. Thanks.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled growth of one of the components of blood mostly suppression of others.hence leading to symptoms like prolonged fever, frequent infection, anemia, easy bleeding or bruising, cough, Lymph node enlargement etc. Blood cancer is caused by abnormal mutations or change in genes which can manifest at early years of age that's why even children can suffer. Blood cancer is treated by chemotherapy mainly.

My PSA level is 10.47 and USG report says that the size of my Prostrate is 73cc. On going through the report The doctor advised me to go for Prostrate biopsy. Though the biopsy report which was done on 09.01. 2016 reveals negative results but immediately after the test was done I suffered UTI infection with blockage of urine. Accordingly I had to be admitted in hospital during the period from 12.01. 2016 to 18.01. 2016. During my stay at hospital I was treated with i. V. Antibiotic (piperacillin and tazobactam) and has been discharged on 19.01. 2016 with Catheter in situ and advised to go for MRI –Prostate. Accordingly, On 30.01. 2016 I have been undergone with MRI and the report is as under I)Prostatomegaly with benign prostatic hyperplasia Ii)Ill-defined T2W hypointense mildly enhancing areas in peripheral zone of prostate right side towards base-PIRADS 3/5. Kindly explain me if there is any possibility of malignancy in the report.

See, psa report is high, not too high, but ofcourse more than the expected value upto 4ng/ml. This value is of total psa, you can also check free psa and the ratio of free and total. Since you have recently undergone biopsy, psa levels may be high because of procedure and you can wait for a fortnight before you repeat psa. Right now there is no conclusive proof that you have malignancy, but your elevated PSA levels and some peripheral enhancement is little uncomfortable, so please repeat all the tests after one month and be under close follow up.

Hi, This is regarding my dad. He is a patient who was having maxillary cancer. His left jaw has been removed completely and operated multiple times. Now his mouth opening is very limited with no denture. Now currently he is cancer free but has tooth pain and his lower tooth has cavity in it. Due to the limited opening the Oncologist he visits said nothing can be done for the tooth. Would you know a way to help him with the pain and suggesting a solution?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Has he received radiation therapy as well? he can go for mouth opening exercise and physiotherapy. Prosthesis are available to help him with or simply with icecream spoons making a stack and try inserting in mouth. Dental surgeons can try opening it under anaesthesia if some procedure needs to be done. Please get opg or ct scan done t to check for the reasons for pain.

Recently I heard an audio lecture that said health depends on quality and quantity of food and water intake. I have lost one of my friend to intestine cancer at 56. I would like to know more on good food practices.

MBBS, DNB ( Radiation Oncology)
Oncologist, Mumbai
We should eat a healthy balanced diet with lots of fibre, fruits and green leafy vegetables. Refined products like maida which are used in pizzas and other fast food should be avoided. Whole wheat, oats, soya, bajra, ragi etc are good for carbohydrates as source. The more refined food we eat, the more we get prone to colon cancer. There have been many studies that show that refined food has a relationship with colon cancer. I hope that helps!
