    STDs or sexually transmitted diseases refer to medical conditions that are contracted through engaging in sexual acts with a person who has an STD. These diseases spread though sexual activities that involve the penis, vagina, mouth or anus and occur commonly among those who are sexually active, especially with multiple partners.

    STDs are usually severe conditions that require proper medical diagnosis and treatment. The kind of treatment method used depends on the nature of the condition. There are several different types of STDs that have varying symptoms and remedial requirements.

    Some of the most common types of STDs are as follows:

    1. Chlamydia

    This is one of the most frequently occurring sexually transmitted diseases that affect both men and women. It is an infection caused by a type of parasitic bacteria that leads to inflammation of the genital organs. Chlamydia is a very difficult to diagnose as in most cases, it does not have any apparent symptoms.

    2. Syphilis

    This STD is extremely contagious and spreads easily through sexual contact or even congenital infection ( an infection that affects an unborn baby) to a developing fetus. It is caused by a type of bacteria and results in chronic ailment that generally require the prescription of antibiotics for treatment.

    3. Gonorrhea

    This disease is also known as 'clap' or 'drip' and is highly contagious. It spreads through sexual acts as well as contact with infected bodily fluids. It leads to bacterial infection of the genitals as well as the internal reproductive organs in both men and women. In many cases, it also affects the mouth, throat and anus.

    4. Genital herpes

    This is an infection of the genitals that is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). It is an incurable condition whose symptoms can only be alleviated through medication. It can be prevented from spreading by using protection during sexual intercourse or abstaining from sex altogether.

    5. Hepatitis B

    This is a life-threatening disease that spreads through sexual transmission and contact with infected body fluids. It is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) and affects the liver, leading to liver scarring, liver failure, and liver cancer. If not detected and treated at an early stage, it causes ceaseless liver degeneration and results in death.

    6. HIV/AIDS

    Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a severe disorder of the immune system that results in the destruction of blood cells that safeguard the body from disease and infection. It is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that can spread through unprotected sexual activity, as well as from congenital transmission to a developing fetus, and sharing needles used for the injection of intravenous drugs.

    Women related cancer: Prevention and Treatment

    With the modernization of all economies around the world, one health hazard that has become one of the largest perils within both developed and developing nations is the incidence of cancers of the female reproductive system, especially cervical and breast cancer.

    Breast cancer

    Breast cancer is the formation of malignant tumors within the breast tissues of a woman. Usually, breast cancer affects women in the age range of 40 to 50, but there have been many reports of it occurring earlier. About 48 % percent of the Indian women having breast cancer have been reported to be under 50. This is an almost 17 percent jump compared to figures 25 years earlier.

    Alarming Signs of Breast Cancer:

    - The most common symptom of breast cancer is a new lump or mass. A painless, hard mass that has irregular edges is more likely to be cancerous, but breast cancers can be tender, soft, or rounded.
    - 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)

    Screening Guidelines for Breast cancer:

    - Mammography: US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends mammography once in every 2 year for females between age group 50-75 years. Women with a family history has a benefit of starting at age 40 years. After 75 years there are insufficient evidence of benefit of screening mammography.
    - Breast Self Examination and annual Clinical examination: breast self examination is easy to learn and and any abnormality should be reported to the oncologist.
    - For High Risk/ Genetic risk factors: screening should start by age 25 or 10 years earlier of youngest relative affected. Annual mammogram and MRI or Doppler ultrasound alternating at 6 month interval can be considered.

    Treatment Options:

    Some of the common treatment options for breast cancers are:

    Breast conservation surgery - This is where the tumors are removed without cutting out too much of the surrounding breast tissue.

    Mastectomy - If the cancer has spread too far then large amounts of breast tissue has to be removed along with the tumor to stop its spread any further.

    Sentinel lymph node Biopsy - it's part of both surgical procedures, it decreases morbidities of lymph node dissection first draining lymph nodes only are removed in patients with clinically negative axilla. If negative on frozen section further axillary dissection is avoided. It avoids the morbidity of complete axillary clearance.

    Cervical cancer ( Carcinoma Cervix)

    Cervical cancer is the cancer of the cervix, which is the opening of the uterus and connects the uterus to the vagina. Indian women in particular are susceptible to cervical cancer as more than 1/3rd of the cervical cancer related deaths in the entire world happens here in India, which is about 74000 deaths annually. The leading cause for cervical cancer is HPV or Human Papillomavirus infection, which if left untreated and unchecked will result in cancer.

    Alarming Signs of Cervical Carcinoma:

    - Early lesions and precancerous lesions have no symptoms
    - Abnormal vaginal bleeding such as bleeding after vaginal intercourse, bleeding after menopause, bleeding and spotting between periods or longer/heavier periods
    - Abnormal vaginal discharge
    - Pelvic pain
    - Late stage disease may cause lower extremity swelling, problem with urine and/or stool passage

    Screening Guidelines:

    - Cervical cancer screening is most effective screening programme of any cancer disease resulting in significant decrease in mortality from carcinoma cervix
    - United state preventive services task force (USPSTF) recommend cervical cancer screening starting at age 21 yrs.
    - Between age 21-30 years cytology recommended at 3 year interval and HPV testing is not recommended.
    - Between 30-65 years cytology every 3 year or cytology +HPV testing every 5 year.
    - If previously adequately screened screening can be discontinued after 65 years.
    - Women with prior total hysterectomy and no CIN can discontinue screening.

    Apart from breast and cervical cancers, certain other cancers have also reported an alarming increase such as:-

    Ovarian cancer (Carcinoma Ovary)

    Starting in the ovaries, diagnosis of this type of cancer is usually delayed due to lack of visible symptoms in the initial stages. About 85% to 90% of ovarian cancers are epithelial ovarian carcinomas. Epithelial ovarian cancers tend to spread to the lining and organs of the pelvis and abdomen (belly) first. This may lead to the buildup of fluid in the abdominal cavity (called ascites). As it advances, it may spread to the lung and liver, or, rarely, to the brain, bones, or skin. The main treatments for ovarian cancer are surgery and chemotherapy.

    Cancer of the endometrium (Carcinoma Endometrium)

    Endometrium is the lining of the uterine wall and has along with ovarian, uterine and cervical cancer is also increasing in occurrences throughout India and the world.

    The grade of an endometrial cancer is based on how much the cancer forms glands that look similar to those found in normal, healthy endometrium.

    - Grade 1 tumors have 95% or more of the cancerous tissue forming glands.
    - Grade 2 tumors have between 50% and 94% of the cancerous tissue forming glands.
    - Grade 3 tumors have less than half of the cancerous tissue forming glands. Grade 3 cancers tend to be aggressive and have a poorer outlook than lower-grade cancers.

    Treatment Options:

    Cervical cancer along with Ovarian, uterine and endometrial cancer can be treated using the following methods:

    1. Surgery: Radical Hysterectomy primarily preferred option for early stage disease. Both open and minimal invasive approaches are suitable.

    - For precancer high grade lesion conisation is also option for compliant patient.
    - In young suitable patient willing for childbearing trachelectomy is also possible in very early lesion.
    - Depending on risk factors after surgery adjuvant treatment may be advised.

    2. Radiation therapy or Combined Radiation therapy+Chemotherapy: Alternative to surgery in early stage and choice in late stage.


    Certain prevention techniques that would be advisable to detect cancer in its early stages would be,

    - Regular Pap smear tests for cervical cancer
    - Taking vaccines for cervical cancer
    - Regular mammograms and checkups for breast cancer
    - Changing lifestyles to reduce stress
    - Changes in diet to reduce risks
    - Leading a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise

    Cancer is an uncontrolled proliferation of transformed cells in any part of the body. Neoplasm or tumor are used variably to describe any swelling or new growth. Benign growths don't have the potential to spread to other organs or parts of the body while malignancy or malignant growths have uncontrolled proliferation and metastatic potential. Transformation is a multistep process with genetic alterations by which normal cells acquire malignant potential, uncontrolled proliferation capacity and capacity to spread to other parts of the body (metastasis) worldwide cancer is responsible for 1 in 8 deaths. Most common cancers are:

    Men: oral cancer (in India), prostate, lung

    Women: breast, cervix and endometrium, colorectal, lung

    What causes cancer? cancer is usually multifactorial

    1. Age- more in age group greater than 60 yrs compared to younger age group

    2. Obesity- body mass index greater than 30

    3. Tobacco - cigarette, cigar, bidi, hookah, smokeless tobacco like gutka, zarda etc. There is no safe form of tobacco.

    4. Pan masala and supari

    5. Alcohol

    6. Ultraviolet rays exposure

    7. Radiation exposure

    8. Genetic factors

    9. Others- pollution, certain chemicals, infections

    Prevention of cancer:

    1. Stay away from tobacco products

    2. Eat healthy and daily physical activity- fresh fruits and vegetable are good, maintain optimal body weight

    3. Be safe in sun

    4. Cancer awareness and early detection: alarming signs are (caution)-

    Change in bowel or bladder habits
    A sore that will not heal
    Unusual discharge or bleeding
    Thickening or lump in the breast, testicles or elsewhere
    Indigestion or difficulty swallowing
    Obvious change in a wart or mole
    A nagging cough or hoarseness

    5. Cancer screening: screening is for healthy individuals with education. Rather than going for unnecessary blind tests, a programme for screening should be planned in consultation with your oncologist as requirements are different for different cancers and differ as per age groups and gender. Also, screening is not effective in all cancers. Cancer education and awareness have due importance. Some cancers in which screening has been shown to be effective includes breast, colon, rectum, cervix, prostate, lung in high-risk groups but as mentioned earlier it is planned with participation of both individual and oncologist.

    Types of cancer treatment:

    Cancer treatment is now a multidisciplinary management in which different surgical, medical and radiation oncologist plan treatment protocol for best possible chances of cure. Advancement in all these fields and their contribution in comprehensive management results in 25-30% improvement in cure rate over previous decades.

    Surgery: involves surgical principles to remove the tumor with adequate margins and possible draining lymph nodes regions. Improvements and understanding of surgical principles even make resection of distant disease or cure of stage iv disease in some selected cases.
    Chemotherapy: cytotoxic drugs are given either in injectable or oral forms which acts on uncontrolled cancer cells. Advances in this fields result in drugs with better efficacy and less side effect profile and at the same time resulting in better cancer control. Targetted therapy acts on specific pathways of cancer growth. Hormone therapy targets specific hormone receptors for controlling cancer.
    Radiation therapy: is the delivery of radiation generated by radioactive source over the region of cancer. More and more advances in radiation technologists are emerging like imrt, sbrt to focus radiation over the specific location so as to avoid toxic effect over surrounding area.
