Cancer is curable. You have to provide details of the organ which is having cancer. After confirmation and staging of cancer proper treatment can be planned. Primary treatment depends on site of origin and extent of disease.

Symptoms of breast cancer

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Symptoms of breast cancer

Possible symptoms of breast cancer include:

  • Swelling of all or part of a breast (even if no distinct lump is felt)
  • Skin irritation or dimpling
  • Breast or nipple pain
  • Nipple retraction (turning inward)
  • Redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin
  • Nipple discharge (other than breast milk)

Sometimes a breast cancer can spread to lymph nodes under the arm or around the collar bone and cause a lump or swelling there, even before the original tumour in the breast tissue is large enough to be felt. Swollen lymph nodes

Hi lybrate-user, commonly blood tests/ tumor markers, scans and biopsies are usually employed to diagnose cancer, with biopsy being the gold standard that clinches the diagnosis. The tests, as mentioned above, vary from cancer to cancer. However, your piles issue is mostly linked with your digestive issues / chronic constipation. For the time being, I would advise you to streamline your diet and lifestyle and stay relaxed. Focus mostly on leafy greens and fresh fibrous fruits including apples on a daily basis. Stay well hydrated, with at least 8 to 10 glasses of water on a daily basis. Avoid flesh foods completely for now. To get over stubborn constipation, if any, you can consume 1 tsp softovac powder duly mixed in a glass of warm drinking water, post dinner for the next 10 days. Consuming juice of bael fruit pulp also stabilizes digestion and cures constipation issues. Post toilet, you can sit in a bowl of cold water to which a tsp of dettol antimicrobial liquid has been added and mixed properly. Post that, use pilex ointment (as recommended) from himalaya. At the same time, get yourself clinically evaluated by a competent gi specialist who can examine your anus/ rectum with a proctoscope and evaluate the seriousness as appropriate. Take care and all the very best.

I am 33 years female I am suffering from glomus tumor Can you please help explain how does it relate to cancer or is it dangerous as cancer what are the survival level.

It is not cancerous, so does not affect survival but needs surgical removal. If not treated early it may grow in size, later making its treatment difficult.

How long a cancer identified patient can survive. Could you give the possible approximate period!

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
There is no specific pattern. It all depends on stage, pathology, patient's immunity to fight the disease, response to treatments and other unknown genetic factors. No specific time can be attributed to it.

My father is suffering from gall bladder cancer on 4th stage what diet I should give to him and now he is felling very weak so what should I do.

Oncologist, Chennai
Dear lybrate-user, Kindly let me know if your father is under any treatment. If he is under any chemo therapy treatment he will be experiencing weakness and also vomiting with reduced appetite. Kindly provide him natural health supplements like fresh fruit juices and frequent meals to give him strength for his usual activities. Vitamin supplements and protein supplements are also advisable.

Is it normal for the breast tissue to move under finger? When touched do breast tissue move in lower inner quadrant? Age 19 yrs.

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy

A fibroadenoma is a very common benign (not cancer) breast condition. The most common symptom is a lump in the breast which usually moves when you touch it. Fibroadenomas often develop during puberty so are mostly found in young women, but they can occur in women of any age.

My mother is a diagnosed case of left breast cancer. Her surgery has been done on 2011 at hisar where her infected breast has been removed completely. And doctor has said after seeing biopsy report that only chemotherapy will be done radiation not required. And we started her chemotherapy at hisar from different doctor as hisar is near to my hometown .And while treatment was done she was doing good. But again after 1 and half year she saw one lump in left neck. And then again she had to go through under chemotherapy as well s radiation. Again she was fine for 1 year after all that treatment. Then next year she got the same problem in right neck bone. This time doctors started giving her Hertraz 440 mg Injection and again she got cured fully. But the story does not ends here. Again after one year she got saw some lump just above and between both the breasts and the doctor again started with Heartraz injections and now its been more than 18 months she intaking those injections but it is not taking any effects now, Till last moth she went for the full body PET test the report said the lump has not reduced from when we diagnosed oit but it has not increased also. But now we seeing it again started increasing, so Can you please suggest something now which treatment we should give her. We are literally very much worried. Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi, Irrational tumour behaviour/ treatments. Breast cancer is notorious. 8 years gone since diagnosis and first treatment. Nothing can be said with certainty. It's a crucial situation.

Mother had breast cancer for which she was operated and now taking medicine tamoxifane 20 fpr 15 year. How long she should continue that medicines.

Usually we continue for five to ten years. Usually we change after five years to another type of hormonal therapy may be aromatase inhibitors. Please keep a check for uterine disease periodically by doing ultrasound abdomen.
