I smoke about 4-5 cigarettes per day. How much probability of having lung cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
It's difficult to calculate the probability, there are some risk calculators available but it's actually difficult to exactly predict as there may be other confounding factors like pollution,environmental factors, occupational hazards, genetic factors. Smoking is not only related to lung cancer but it may lead to head and neck cancer, gastrointestinal, bladder etc.

May i know your age and menopausal status. Post menopausal bleed or bleeding after sexual intercourse may be indicators to gynaecological cancers. It is difficult to predict your risk right now. But a surgery for removing uterus is definitely warranted, It may be checked during the surgery with a frozen section technique to evaluate for presence of cancer and be addressed accordingly then

Dear sir, mediastenal germ cell tumours are treated by chemotherapy and usually respond well. Radiation therapy may also be offered. Price may vary from set up you want to take treatment from. At regional cancer centres, medical college it may be very economical.

Brush your teeth after each meal and at bedtime with a soft-bristle toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Soak the brush in warm water to make the bristles even softer.Floss gently once a day.Rinse your mouth four to six times a day, especially after meals, with salt and baking soda. Try a solution of half a teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of baking soda in one cup of warm water.When radiation therapy starts, use fluoride rinses and gels. These are an important part of caring for the health of your mouth during cancer treatment.Drink sips of water throughout the day, and use artificial saliva to moisten the mouth.Avoid mouthwashes and other dental products that contain alcohol. Products designed for people with dry mouth are available without a prescription.Use a cool mist humidifier, especially at night.
