All About Multiple Myeloma

All About Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is a type of blood cancer similar to lymphoma and leukemia. Normally, plasma cells make antibodies which are responsible for fighting off infectious diseases. With multiple myeloma, however, they release too much of a protein known as immunoglobulin. Due to the excess buildup of protein in the body, organ damage occurs. Multiple myeloma cannot be cured, it can only have its progression slowed down. Here is everything you need to know about multiple myeloma:

Causes:
Just like with other forms of cancer, the exact cause of multiple myeloma is not known. However, there are several risk factors which are responsible for increasing your chances of suffering from multiple myeloma.

Risk Factors:

  1. Age: Age poses as one of the most important risk factors. Being over 65 increases your chances of getting multiple myeloma, according to studies.
  2. Race: African-Americans are more likely to get multiple myeloma compared to other races.
  3. Genetics: Multiple myeloma is more likely to happen if a family member has it as well.
  4. Other Diseases: Solitary plasmacytoma, MGUS and other plasma related diseases make you more likely to develop multiple myeloma.

Symptoms: 

  • Bone pain or bone fractures
  • Fatigue
  • Increased vulnerability to infections
  • Increased or decreased urination
  • Restlessness – eventually followed by extreme weakness and fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Increased thirst
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Loss of appetite and weight loss
  • Impaired kidney function

Diagnosis: 

Your doctor may test you for multiple myeloma if a blood test reveals:

  1. Too much calcium in your blood (hypercalcemia)
  2. Anemia 
  3. Kidney problems
  4. High protein levels in your blood combined with a low albumin level (globulin gap)

Treatment:

There is no cure for multiple myeloma; however with good treatment you can resume normal activities. Here are the treatment options-

  1. Biological therapy: These are medications given in pill form which enhance the body's immune system; so that it can fight off myeloma cells.
  2. Targeted therapy: Targeted therapy is when cancerous cells are killed by targeting the abnormalities within them. These are given through a vein in your arm.
  3. ChemotherapyChemotherapy kills all the cells which are growing at a rapid rate. These drugs can be given through injection or orally.
  4. Corticosteroids: Corticosteroids are medicines which regulate the immune system by controlling the inflammation in the body. Corticosteroids can be taken in pill form or even through injections.
  5. Stem Cells Transplant: An autologous stem cell transplant is recommended for all eligible and suitable patients of multiple myeloma under 65 yrs of age, who show a good response to initial therapy, as it has been proven to improve survival.

Homoeopathic Management in Gynecological Disorders

Homoeopathy for Women’s Health: Homoeopathy can offer good health to women in all stage of their Lives from infancy through old age. It is beneficial for the full range of emotional, mental and physical problems that a woman is likely to experience, and can help her through the transitional and developmental milestones of her life.

Later in life when a woman gets pregnant, or has a hard time conceiving (homoeopathy can helps with problems of infertility), it can assist with difficulties frequently encountered, such as morning sickness and depression. By treating the mother during pregnancy and making her as healthy as she can be, we can insure that the baby will be born healthy and free of inherited diseases.

Ideally, both parents should be treated before the baby is conceived as remedies act very deeply, right down to the genetic level. For example, a woman who has two children with cleft lips will be able to have a Third normal child if given the correct homoeopathic treatment before conceiving the child.

Regarding post-partum depression, much misery can be alleviated by homoeopathic treatment; remedies work quickly and effectively in cases.

Homoeopathy offers a safe and effective solution to the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause compared to HRT which has been found to cause many side effects ranging from nausea and varicose veins to strokes and cancer.

My father age is 75. He has third stage throat cancer. How long he may survive? he may tolerate radiotherapy?

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
Throat cancer can occur in larynx, oropharynx and hypopharynx. You didn't mention the specific site. Primary treatment for these sites is chemoradiotherapy. However prognosis depends on site. Survival after treatment is good for oropharynx and laryngopharynx, worse for hypopharynx. At 75 yrs of age, probably only radiotherapy will be given. Of his general condition is good, then go with radiotherapy. This is the only chance of cure.

He is a cancer patient (onco) n has been operated over the mouth five times since 2011 n currently he is under treatment by chemotherapy n radiation. Any effective medication in ayurveda or homeopath?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Homeopathic remedies work on following basis 1. Type of cells causing cancer 2. The common presenting discomfort unique or associated with your disease state. 3. The advancement of disease leading to what kind of effects on your body. 4. What is the state of vitality of your body 5. The pace of disease. Homeopathic cancer remedies are effective in reducing the pace of disease. Followed by more vitality and very less discomforts along. Once we reach this state, we start rigorous treatment which help cure the cancer. The cancerous tissue gets encapsulated as calcified lesion. If it is creating pressure effects on surrounding tissues, surgery is sought for it.

The drug you mentioned is still experimental. We can't advise this at this moment. Diarrhoea is a common side effect after radiation. Majority of my patients with Ca cervix after radiation, complain this. It may persist for long time. It's distressing but not worrisome. So, don't worry.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, Signet ring cell carcinoma is a variant of adenocarcinoma. It looks like a signet ring because of lot of mucin inside the cells. Usually signet ring carcinoma are more aggressive types and often present with advanced disease. However if the cancer has been treated then the survival would be similar to the standard adenocarcinoma which we see

Yes chronic irritation by a sharp broken tooth can lead to oral cancer,and also infection from that tooth can pass to nearby spaces and can lead to ludwig angina. Which can lead to death. And yes enamel can be whitened by dental bleeching.

What are the chances of survival in blood cancer in case someone is appearing with chemo treatment. Earlier went through the radiation but it did not work on him. Age is 26Gender-Male.

Hi lybrate-user, main modality of blood cancer i.e, leukemia is chemotherapy. The survival depends on the type of leukemia and its variant. ALL has better prognosis than CML. Due to inadequate information, survival period cannot be commented.

Do homeopathic medicines have any side effect? Also tell me sir which therapy is more effective in treating deadly diseases like cancer?

Oncologist, Mumbai
Dear Sir, Lot of effort is going on to decide which is the best therapy for cancer. Unfortunately cancer is one word with 1000 manifestations and there is no simple cure for it. Having said this, allopathy at present gives you the best shot at cure. A judicious use of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy often cures cancers in stage 1 and 2. There is lot of research going on for homeopathy and ayurveda but unfortunately it is still in its infancy. So at present allopathy is the best bet. I am not saying this because I am a surgeon, but unfortunately every month we get 2 or 3 patients who were stage 1 to begin with and progressed to stage 4 on alternative therapies and we could not do anything for them at such a late stage.
