Is a palpable lump in the side a symptom of colon cancer? Or is it only found as a polyp inside and can not be felt?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Intra-abdominal lumps are usually difficult to feel by individuals themselves unless they become quite big. But big lumps will also have some symptoms so it may be something else if you do not have any symptoms. Colon cancers present as altered bowel habits or indigestion. There can be frank bleeding or occult blood in stool picked up by stool microscopic examination. Serum cea levels can be checked in suspicious cases along with stool test and further colonoscopic examination will help in diagnosis. You can meet a gastroenterologist if any abdominal symptoms you feel.

Bladder Cancer Surveillance: Understanding the Challenges Associated with it

Bladder Cancer Surveillance: Understanding the Challenges Associated with it

Cancer is probably the most dreaded disease of our time. There are many different types of cancers, based on the parts of the body affected. As the name suggest, bladder cancer originates in the bladder. It typically affects elderly people but can occur at any age. In most cases, bladder cancer is treatable as long as it is detected in the early stages. However, it has a high risk of recurrence and hence cancer surveillance is needed for many years after treatment.

There are a number of challenges associated with bladder cancer surveillance, such as: 

  1. Anxiety: As expected, it can be quite nerve wrecking to be constantly tested for cancer and have to wait for the results of your tests. A cystoscopic examination is one of the main methods of testing for bladder cancer. Most patients show both pre-procedural and post-procedural anxiety. To deal with this anxiety and stress try meditating or practising yoga. Going for a walk regularly can also help ease the symptoms of anxiety and improve your overall health. Connect with other bladder cancer patients who can understand your experience and fears.
  2. Adherence: After the cancer has been cured, bladder cancer patients need to be tested at least once every 3-6 months for the first three years and annually thereafter. This frequency increases for Nonmuscle-invasive bladder cancer patients. Many patients prefer to use urine-based tests rather than a cystoscopic examination, but this may lead to more unwanted stress and anxiety and these tests do have false positive results at the time. Adhering to this schedule is often difficult and most patients do not strictly adhere to this schedule. However, this is completely in the hands of the patient. The more regularly you get yourself checked up, the higher the chances of detecting bladder cancer tumours in the initial stages and getting it treated.
  3. Related infections: Bladder cancer patients have a higher risk of developing tumors in the ureter and kidneys. Tumors may also develop in the inner lining of these organs. The risk of these tumors depends on the stage and grade of the initial disease and the response of the tumor to treatment. As with any other infection and health disorder, your food and water intake plays an important role in keeping toxins at bay. While there have been no proven supplements to help prevent bladder cancer, drink plenty of water to flush your system and keep it clean.

A small lump in rt. Breast of my sister (fibroderma) light pain on it. After biopsy doctor says invasive ductal carcinoma pl. Tell me what is the treatment procedure &how much money require.

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist,
Dear, the first step is to evaluate if the cancer has spread from the breast to other areas. This will require certain tests including mammography of the other breast, chest xray, ultrasound scan of the abdomen and some blood tests. Treatment will include surgery to remove the cancer, radiation therapy, chemotherapy (injections) and hormonal therapy (tablets). Please visit a cancer institute as suggested as soon as possible. There are government schemes that will help eligible people to get free treatment in any hospital. I would advise you to enquire about that.

I am suffering by AVN (avascular necrosis) followed by excessive steroids-dexamethasone (in chemotherapy treatment for breast Cancer in my left breast) since last three years, taking homeopathic remedies such as Calcareous Hypophos, but still to much pain & my bone shape is changed. please suggest me better remedies.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Avascular necrosis (AVN), also called osteonecrosis, aseptic necrosis, or ischemic bone necrosis, is a condition that occurs when there is loss of blood to the bone. Because bone is living tissue that requires blood, an interruption to the blood supply causes bone to die. If not stopped, this process eventually causes the bone to collapse. Avascular necrosis most commonly occurs in the upper leg. Other common sites are the upper arm, knees, shoulder, and ankles.The goals of treatment for AVN are to improve or ensure function of the affected joint, stop the progression of bone damage, and reduce pain. The best treatment will depend on a number of factors, including: Your age Stage of the disease Location and amount of bone damage Cause of AVN If the cause of your avascular necrosis is identified, treatment will include efforts to manage the underlying condition. For example, if AVN is caused by blood clots, your doctor will prescribe medications to dissolve clots. If inflammation of the arteries is responsible, your doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory medicines. While these nonsurgical treatments may slow the progression of avascular necrosis, most people with the condition eventually need surgery. Surgical options include: Bone grafts, which involve removing healthy bone from one part of the body and using it to replace the damaged bone Osteotomy, a procedure that involves cutting the bone and changing its alignment to relieve stress on the bone or joint Total joint replacement, which involves removing the damaged joint and replacing it with a synthetic joint Core decompression, a procedure that involves removing part of the inside of the bone to relieve pressure and allow new blood vessels to form Vascularized bone graft, a procedure that uses the patient's own tissue to rebuild diseased or damaged hip joints; the surgeon first removes the bone with the poor blood supply from the hip and then replaces it with the blood-vessel-rich bone from another site, such as the fibula, the smaller bone located in the lower leg.

DNB, MBBS

Dear sir, early diseases of lung can be operated and removed, but advanced diseases need chemotherapy radiation therapy. If pain is because of bone involvement then palliative radiation therapy may be offered. Patient needs adequate amount of pain killers to overcome pain and a good supportive care.

Hello I am 21 years girl and I had once pain in breast an since last 2 days its hard around nipples what should I do an is it a symptom of breast cancer?

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month but you can feel some hardness so you may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. Cancer 'usually' does not occur at this age, it may be an infection, see a doctor.

The report will mention something like "Post void urine" That would be of help. Also further evaluation of symptoms along with size of prostate and post void urine are needed to decide if surgery is the best option.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. As such, 4th stage (metastatic) breast cancer is not considered curable. However, it is treatable. Depending on the type of cancer, treatment can help improve quality of life, overall survival, and also help manage cancer related symptoms. Simultaneously, an adjunctive treatment with suitable alternative medicines can also facilitate achieving the above-mentioned clinical end-points. You can connect with details for further naturopathic traction as contextually appropriate. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.

Breast Pain - Understanding the Types and Reasons Behind it

MD

Breast Pain - Understanding the Types and Reasons Behind it

Breast pain, also known as mastalgia, can be termed as any type of discomfort, pain or tenderness in and around the breast or the underarm region. It can also be accompanied by a sharp pain or a burning sensation.

There are two major types of breast pain

  1. Cyclical Pain: As the name suggests, this type of pain occurs on a cyclic basis and is linked with one’s menstrual cycle. It may happen when one is going through her periods and is influenced by hormonal imbalances. This type of pain is generally not a cause of concern.

  2. Non-Cyclical Pain: This is generally not common and its cause can be linked to a variety of reasons; cancer or a malignant tumour in the breast being the most severe consequence.

Causes of Breast Pain

  1. Lumpy breasts along with soreness and pain can be caused due to fibrocystic breast tissue.

  2. Hormonal imbalance can also lead to pain or discomfort in and around the breast region. Abnormal prolactin limits can also be a contributing factor.

  3. Breast cancer can also lead to pain, mostly in the left breast. Along with the pain, it can also induce a dull ache, tightness or heaviness in the chest.

Treatments for Breast pain

The various treatments for cyclical breast pain include:

  1. Making modifications in the diet

  2. Administering Vitamin E and calcium supplements

  3. Including thyroid hormonal supplements in the diet

  4. Reducing sodium intake in your diet

  5. For non-cyclical breast pain, which is often the cause of cancer, a thorough examination is recommended. A clinical biopsy will be advised if the lumpy tissues make the tumour harder to be detected through a mammogram.

  6. If the pain is on account of an injury, then appropriate painkillers will have to be administered to reduce the pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an oncologist and ask a free question.
