Sir, My mother is suffering from cervix cancer (IIIB).She already took 25 250c gy radiation with weekly chemo(cisplatin)& 3 brachytherapy treatment ,now some symptoms like mucus black stool has been seeing for 5 to 6 times per day for which she is taking the OFLOMAC OZ medicine.Sir i heard about graviola flowers (soursop) which is used as juice to kill the cancer cells directly,but providing some of the side effects such as parkinson's disease and damage to nerve cell.So then what should i do? (my question is whether i should give it or not? )if is it okay to give then what should be the dosage?

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.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. I would advise you to try the following natural steps that may help reduce the inflammation and possibly prevent a recurrence as well - (a) streamline your diet. Include more of leafy greens and fresh fruits including red grapes. Minimize intake of spicy, oily, fatty, and high calorie foods including fast foods. (b) stay hydrated well. Take at least 8 to 10 glasses of filtered water daily (c) avoid constipation at all costs. Exercise daily for 30 to 45 minutes. (d) take'sporlac' (probiotic) tablets once daily for the next 21 days. (e) take'haridra' (himalaya) capsules 250 mg, twice daily for next 1 month after food. (f) take 250 ml of fresh pineapple juice (unsweetened) daily. (g) do not squeeze the cyst for it may be painful and lead to infections/ inflammations. Nevertheless, you should consult an experienced dermatologist/ cosmetologist here and seek his/ her opinion on the way forward, as well. You may also decide to remove the bigger ones through surgery should you find them causing inconvenience. Now a days, laser surgery is known to minimize invasion and helps reduce the overall scar length to inconspicuously small, about a third of the cyst diameter. However, it does not guarantee a recurrence or permanent cure though. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely.

What Causes Colon Cancer ? + It's Warning Signs

MBBS, MD - Medicine, POST GRADUATE CLINICAL COURSE IN DIABETES MANAGEMENT

What Causes Colon Cancer ? + It's Warning Signs

Colon cancer is cancer that starts in the large intestine (colon). In most cases it begins as a non-malignant group of cells called polyps, which may turn cancerous over time. After the formation of the malignant tumors, the cancerous cells may spread to other parts of your body through lymph and blood channels. It can occur together with rectal cancer and is known as colorectal cancer.

Causes of Colon Cancer

The occurrence of colon cancer may depend on the presence of precancerous polyps in the colon. Adenomas polyps may turn cancerous, but are removable through colonoscopy. Hyperplastic polyps rarely become cancerous, whereas inflammatory polyps may become cancerous after the inflammation of the colon.

Other risk factors that may influence the occurrence of colon cancer are,

  • Genetics: about 20% colon cancers are thought to be caused by mutation of the genes.
  • Age: those over the age of 50 are more likely to develop colon cancer, though now it is also increasingly affecting younger people.
  • Lifestyle: it is more likely to affect people who lead a sedentary lifestyle, smoke tobacco or are obese.
  • Diet: it is more likely to affect those whose diets are high in red meats, calories, and fat while being low in fiber. Alcohol consumption may also affect its occurrence.
  • Medical conditions: people who suffer from diabetes, acromegaly (growth hormone disorder) and colitis etc, may also be prone to develop colon cancer.

Warning Signs of Colon Cancer

Colon cancer generally goes undetected in the early stages. The symptoms vary with the location, spread and size of the tumor. In the earlier stages of cancer, most people experience no symptoms, but in the later stages they may experience one or more of these symptoms:

- Change in bowel habits such as diarrhea, constipation or change in consistency of stools; lasting more than a month
- Blood in stool or bleeding from the rectum
- Pain during passage of stool
- Pain, cramps or gas in the abdominal region
- Frequent urges to pass stool
- Weakness
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Anemia
- Unexpected weight loss

However, these symptoms may not necessarily indicate colon cancer. They can occur in the absence of colon cancer too.

What is cause, symptoms and preventing ways of cancer and explain the history of the disease?

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
Genetic changes that cause cancer can be inherited from our parents. They can also arise during a person’s lifetime as a result of errors that occur as cells divide or because of damage to DNA caused by certain environmental exposures. Cancer-causing environmental exposures include substances, such as the chemicals in tobacco smoke, and radiation, such as ultraviolet rays from the sun. Types of Cancer There are more than 100 types of cancer. Types of cancer are usually named for the organs or tissues where the cancers form. For example, lung cancer starts in cells of the lung, and brain cancer starts in cells of the brain. prevention is not possible, symptom depends on the organ involved. thanks

Cancer Alert: Know Symptoms That Could Be Cancer
Cancer symptoms you shouldn't ignore

Most often than not, cancer comes unannounced and rocks our world. While of late routine tests are being encouraged, it is advisable to keep a look out for symptoms which are commonly overlooked. Some of them are:

1. Peculiar back pain - it has been noticed that the first symptom for liver cancer in many cases is pain the back of the lower back side of the body. Back pain could also be a symptom for breast cancer, in cases where the tumour is pressing backwards, into the chest.
2. Unexplained nail marks - nails often reflect the condition of our health. If there is a sudden and unexplained change in the fingernails, like maybe a dot/a black mark or a brown mark under the nail, this could be a sign of lung cancer.
3. Sensitive skin patches - if there is a lump on the skin or a patch feels sore, is crusty or bleeds very easily then this could be a symptom of skin cancer. It is important to be aware of all changes in your skin, throughout the body.
4. Unexplained facial puffiness - if your face seems puffy, read or swelled, without any logical explanation, this could be a symptom.
5. Unusual menstruation - if you are having unusually heavy and painful periods, it is advisable to request for a transvaginal ultrasound as this could be a symptom of uterine cancer.
6. Changes in breast (s) - this is the most common change which women who have been diagnosed of breast cancer have reported. If the nipple is flattened, inverted or turned sideways, it could be a symptom for breast cancer. Also, if the breast feels read, sore or swollen, it could be a symptom.
7. Frequent stomach problems - frequent upset stomachs and cramps could be the symptom of colorectal cancer.
8. Unreasonable weight loss - if you are losing a lot of weight without even trying to, this could be an early sign of colon or any other digestive cancer. It could also mean that the cancer is spreading to the liver, if your appetite is getting affected.
9. Blood in stool - if there is blood in your stool, this could be a symptom of colorectal cancer and you need to go for a colonoscopy.

My wife have a lump in left breast but we don't know is this a cancer or not please help me to know whether it is a cancer or simply a lump.

M.S, MBBS
General Surgeon, Bangalore
As per your question, you are aware that your wife has a lump in her breast. Going by the age, and if there is no family history of having cancer of either breast or ovary, all the probability is that it could be an harmless lump. Nevertheless, it has to be confirmed. It is suggested that you consult a surgeon for further evaluation which includes an Ultrasound of breast (to find out if any additional smaller lumps) and a cytology test if required.

Ayurvedic Remedies for Nasopharynx Cancer

Nasopharynx cancer is a very unusual type of cancer. In this medical condition, cancer cells affect the nasopharynx region, which is the uppermost part of your pharynx. The cells start growing from the upper region of the throat and can spread up to your head. Nasopharynx is a very important passage of your body placed right behind your nose, which connects your nose to your mouth and allows you to breathe. Thus, if this crucial region gets affected by the growth of cancer cells, severe difficulties and health problems may crop up.

The primary cause of nasopharynx cancer is infection. There are other causes, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, working with specific chemicals or wood dust.

The most common symptoms of nasopharynx cancer are mentioned below:

  • Difficulties in vision and speech
  • Ear infections
  • Nose bleeding
  • Loss of hearing
  • Frequent headaches

Nasopharynx cancer cause serious problems to the ear-nose-throat region. Ayurveda offers effective remedies for treating nasopharynx cancer. A few of the remedies are mentioned below:

  1. Exclude salt in your diet and also avoid sea fishes or fishes containing salt.
  2. Practice good hygiene, since, nasopharynx cancer is primarily caused due to virus infections, practicing healthy habits like washing hands before and after food can prove to be helpful.
  3. Avoid smoking and drinking as it smoking and alcohol consumption will only worsen your condition.
  4. Certain breathing exercises may help you to cope up with the problem better.
  5. Panchakarma therapy which helps to clean your body from harmful toxins which may prove to be helpful.
  6. Also many Ayurvedic herbs and essential oils can effectively treat nasopharynx cancer.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Hormonal changes from monthly menstruation can trigger cysts as well as transient inflammation/ swelling of the breasts. However, breast cysts are usually benign. Usually, before the onset of menses, the breast tissue with the larger breast often tends to swell with some amount of tenderness/ pain. But, this is often temporary and resolves automatically. Should the pain be unbearable, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate pain. Do stay well hydrated and take'amla churna' (patanjali) &'bael churna (patanjali- 1/2 tsp each with warm water, preferably before lunch daily for next 1 month. Simultaneously, keep your diet and lifestyle streamlined, you can take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, once daily. Just make sure that you keep at least 2 hours gap between any of your present allopathic medications and the natural remedies as suggested above. Its advisable that you check with your doc on how long he/ she wants you to continue with cabergoline medication. Hope this helps. Take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

I am suffering from Hodgkin lymphoma from last 1year. I want to ask what are the causes of this and how can we leave from this and what types of food I need to eat and in how much time take to healthy me?

MBBS, DNB ( Radiation Oncology)
Oncologist, Mumbai
Hello, hodgkins lymphoma is usually a treatable cancer which responds very well to chemotherapy and radiation. Depending on the stage the number of cycles of chemotherapy and radiation dose is decided. Many times there may be history of exposure to radiation in childhood and many times it just happens due to some genetic mutations too. You should have a balanced diet, with adequate proteins, green leafy vegetables, fruits, lots of antioxidants. Hope that helps!

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology

Dear lybrate-user, green coloured vomiting may be the after effect of extensive surgery and chemotherapy. With the passage of time it will go away unless there was severe liver involvement of liver and gall bladder which is a common finding in the advanced stages of large bowel cancers. You need only symptomatic management.

If it is a proven breast cancer then the treatment depends upon the stage of disease. Usually chemotherapy followed by surgery and then further treatment according to surgical staging is done. You must urgently consult an onco surgeon for the same.

Hello dear, nasopharynx cancer has good response to chemoradiotherapy. Based on the extent of disease and histological variant, response varies. If biopsy report is squamous carcinoma, has good reponse to chemoradiotherapy. If report is adenoxarcinima, has poor reponse.

Alternative Medicine Specialist, Bhubaneswar
Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking clarification. Alternative systems of medicine, undoubtedly, will continue to have a strong role to play both in the prevention as well as treatment of cancer, independently and also as a complement to the conventional cancer treatment. The possibility of a cure, however, is influenced by a couple of factors including stage and its associated comorbidities, age, vitality, gene expressions, chromosomes affected, histopathological grading and the type of cancer etc all. Usually, small cell lung cancers are difficult to treat than the non small cell lung cancer (nsclc) ones. Again, metastasis into distant organs complicates stuff and tends to reduce the chances of a cure. Hope this clarifies. Take care and all the very best.

Blood Cancer - Ayurvedic Remedies For It!

Blood Cancer - Ayurvedic Remedies For It!

In our modern life, cancer is the most dreaded disease of all. Despite substantial advances in medical science, there hasn't been much of a progress in the treatment available for cancer. The mortality rate for cancer is still on the rise and all this, in spite of all kinds of sophisticated treatments at our disposal. 

Cancer is rather a torturous experience, not merely on account of the terminal consequence, but also of the extreme physical and emotional suffering that one has to endure. What's worse is that often all the efforts are rendered vain. In that context, a large number of people have started looking towards alternative therapies as a cure for cancer. Serious forms of cancers like blood cancer or leukemia are often formidable and do not respond favourably to the clinical treatments. Consequently, despite all attempts and humongous investments, the casualties are on the rise. To counter such threats, people are growingly moving towards alternative remedies. Among the other natural cures, Ayurveda has garnered a lot of interest and approval.

Ayurveda has devised a holistic process that potentially cures you of blood cancer and endows you with a fresh leash of life. As per Ayurveda, the main causes of cancer may be enumerated as genetic imbalances, exposure to harmful radiation, stressful and unhealthy lifestyle and consumption of degenerating food items. As such, Ayurveda tries to heal not just the disease but also the germ of the disease and in the process, improves your well-being.

Ayurveda grapples with blood cancer in the following ways: 

  1. Adjuvant to ongoing treatment: You may be skeptical of depending entirely on Ayurveda as a remedy for cancer. As such, Ayurvedic treatments may be used as ancillaries alongside the ongoing chemotherapy and radiology. Ayurveda stimulates your in built immunity and thus prolongs and rejuvenates your lifespan. That aside, the natural benefits that Ayurveda provides your body reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and help in complete remission of the disease.
  2. Rasashastra: Ayurveda deems the imbalance in your genetic code to be the main cause of cancer. Therefore, it believes that remedy lies in 'pitta' restoration. Under this treatment, Ayurveda uses a combination of metals vis-a-vis the purest elements to minimize the deterioration of the condition. A unique combination of silver, gold and other essential minerals can be wondrous to boost the immunity of the cells and restore the normal cell production rate in your marrows. This goes a long way in obliterating the damage caused by blood cancer.
  3. The right diet: Consuming the most favourable foods are essential while battling cancer. An alkaline diet comprising of coconut water, warm, fresh nutritious food like leafy greens, apples and nuts must be regularly consumed. Greasy, spicy and lavish dishes should be avoided since they are known to generate harmful 'ama' in your body.
