Cancer occurring in people which are not using tabacoo and alcoholic substance what's the reason behind this?

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist
Ask Free Question
Tobacco and alcohol are causes of a few of many cancers. Only nails and hair don't get cancer. Rest all organs get cancers. The basic reason for a cancer is a genetic mutation that is defect in genes that either causes excess multiplication or prevent natural death of cells. Such an uncontrolled growth is cancer. Why these genetic mutations occur is difficult to decipher and no one cause can be blamed for it. But there are risk factors. Like no pregnancy or a delayed one is a risk factor for breast cancer. Infection by human papilloma virus can cause cancers of cervix, anal canal, oral cavity, etc. Exposure to radiation can cause cancers. Exposure to environmental toxins and uv rays from sun can cause cancers.

For a gall bladder cancer which has been found accidentally on the choloecystectomy surgery, we need to do a repeat ct/mri to see for any residual disease. After this, we need to do a repeat surgery where we remove some part of the liver and the lymph nodes which are around that area. We send all this for pathology check up and based on this report, the final stage of the disease is decided. Based on this the further chemotherapy is planned.

Hello lybrate-user. Under the guidance and supervision of a qualified cosmetologist, it is definitely safe to undergo laser treatment as and when advised.

My brother's wife is cancer cured - left breast, more than 8 years. She is healthy now, working as well. I would like to know whether her daughter, 26, is taking medication for thyroid, may have this disease on hereditary basis, in future.

DNB, MBBS

See, to ascertain whether it was genetically related she has to check her BRCA genes, usually BRCA 1and 2both are checked and if positive then chances of inherited breast cancers are high. Anyhow, it may be slightly psychologically troublesome as not all cases will develop cancer and there may be other risk factors aswell. She should still go for regular breast self examination on monthly basis, five days after periods are over and can go for mammography after may be 10years as she is only 26.

Smoking can lead to both lung diseases and lung cancers and heart attack, so you should not hesitate to quit a poison if you want to be healthy. Secondly meet a chest physical for a PFT and then a routine cardiological evaluation. Then do respiratory yoga daily.

1 it is a dangerous condition. It should have been operated in childhood. 2 if one testes is working normally, then your sex life will be normal. 3 to know whether you will get children or not get semen analysis done. 4 untreated undescended testes can convert into testicular cancer.

I have been suffering from enlargement of prostrate for last 2 years. During October 2015 my PSA was detected at 10.92.Thereafter I underwent TRUS and prostrate BX. But it revealed no sign of malignancy. However immediately after Prostrate BX, I was fallen acutely sick with complete retention of Urine. Accordingly, I was hospitalized in January 2016 and treated with iv injection and catheterization. At the time of discharge after one week with catheter in situ, I was advised to go for TURP at the earliest. However, I was not in favor of surgery. Hence, I had made consultation with another surgeon in last week of January 2016 and based on his advice I have undergone MRI Prostrate .PI Rads of MRI is 3/5. Depending on the report, he prescribed me the medicine contiflo-D and advised me to report after 1.5 months with PSA Report. Accordingly, I made report to him in FEBRUARY 2016 WTH MY PSA reading at 8.05. On going through the report, the doctor removed my catheter, prescribed the same medicine –contiflo-D, and asked me to report again in May 2015 with PSA REPORT. On 7th. May 2016, I visited the doctor with PSA reading at 6.05.The doctor then prescribed me Urimax-D and Calutide-50. In replacement of the earlier prescribed medicine. However on consuming Calutide-50, I being a bronchial Asthma patient, developed breathing problem. Accordingly, I made my PSA test on 13.06.2016 and visited doctor on 15.06.2016 with PSA report of 2.72 .On going through the report the doctor advised me to continue other medicine excepting Calutide and report after 03 months with report on PSA and Haemoglobin. I have made my PSA and haemoglobin on 02.11.2016 and the report of test reveals that PSA has been elevated to 5.27 while haemoglobin % has also increased from 14.0 to 14.4.With the report I have consulted my Urologist on 05.11.2016 and due to elevation of PSA he has advised me to continue Calutide again. I have learnt from my chemist that the medicine Calutide is generally prescribed for treatment of Prostate cancer. I am rather worried if I have been suffering from the said Incurable disease. In view of the above, kindly inform me if Calutide can also be prescribed for BPH. Regards.

Traffic Jams - Can they Make Your Body Susceptible to Cancer

MBBS
General Physician
Ask Free Question

The most dreadful part of getting to work and getting back home in the evening is the being stuck in a traffic jam. Whether you’re driving yourself or being driven home, a traffic jam can sap your spirits and make you feel tired even though you’re not really exerting yourself. According to a recent study, these traffic jams not only increase your stress levels, but also make your body susceptible to cancer.

Yes! They can be a major reason behind your ill health-

  1. Bumper to bumper traffic that moves at snail pace can be very stressful, especially if you have to get somewhere at a particular time. The irritation of not being able to move at your desired pace adds on to the million other things going on in your mind. The body reacts to stress by increasing blood sugar and blood pressure levels. Long term stress can lead to digestive problems, fertility issues and a weakened immune system that makes the body vulnerable to other diseases and infections. Stress can also lead to the development of behavior like smoking, drinking and over eating which can increase a person’s risk of cancer.
  2. Pollution levels are highest at traffic signals and at traffic jams. This is because at a busy intersection, cars go through various stages such as accelerating, braking and idling in a restricted space. Each of these actions is accompanied with emission of toxic gases and fine particles of matter which concentrate in an area and take longer to disperse. Contrary to popular belief, people in cars can be more affected by these pollutants than pedestrians. This is especially true in cases where people have their windows up and fans on as the fans suck in polluted air leading to a buildup of toxic gases inside the car. When these gases and particulate matter are inhaled, they get stuck in the nose and throat and are absorbed into the blood stream. Long term exposure to this can have serious negative effects on the body including a higher risk to cancer. To avoid this, ensure that the setting of the ac of your car or fan is set to only circulate air inside the car without drawing in polluted air from outside.

Also, try and find ways to avoid traffic jams. If your office allows, maybe you could try changing your timing a little. Experiment with routes. Often the inner roads have more twists and turns but much less traffic.
