I'm 20 years old female I have inverted nipples and I found it as a symptom of breast cancer is it true? Bt from the day I have got matured I don't have any growth in that part is it normal or a serious matter?

Dear lybrate-user, retracted nipples are the symptoms of cancer. Inverted nipples is usually a developmental anomaly. Often by child birth and lactation, they arrive to the normal location. If they were previously protruding and then have retracted, then you need further evaluation. But if they have remained the same from childhood to present, it's not a cause for worry. A gynaecologist can guide you for this and later during child birth and lactation.

Surgery is not a first line treatment for prostate enlargement. Medical therapy is to be tried first. If the symptoms is not responding to medical management, then surgery is recommended.

It may take a month or two to become blood counts normal. He needs to repeat bone marrow examination after 3 Months of starting tables to assess response.

I have a pain feeling in my right breast recently. I found a lump inside. What should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, pain in breast at your age is usually due to hormonal changes and are mostly self limiting. You can take pain killers as and when required, use sports bra and proper breast support. You can also take vitamin e supplement to reduce inflammation and pain. As far as lump is concerned you should get an ultrasound done for breast and if suspicious then fnac from lump. Usually at your age it should be fibroadenoma but still one should be cautious. If fibroadenoma then you should simply observe it by getting periodical ultrasound done to monitor it's size.

I have been smoking regularly for 40 year, I want to get some test done to check my health and the early risk of cancer (if any). What tests should I go for?

Registrar in Surgical Oncology, Fellowship in Gynaecologic Oncology, Masters In Advanced Oncology, Fellowship in advanced laparoscopy and robotic surgery, Fellowship in Gastrointestinal Oncology
Oncologist, Mumbai
Smoking exposes you too various types of cancer mainly being lung cancer and cancer of your aerodigestive tract. This means your lung, mouth, wind pipe, food pipe and stomach are at risk. The maximum risk is with the first two. There is also the risk of cardiac problems. I would advise you to ideally undergo a comprehensive health check for cardiac status (stress test), lung function (pft) and others. For cancer though there are no reliable tests to detect cancers early, an oral exam by the surgeon at the health check up, an endoscopy if persistent ulcer complaints and a low dose ct scan of the chest are advised in chronic smokers. (though as I mentioned earlier, none are foolproof.)

Though it's not the chronological age but general condition that is more important but definitely my opinion would be that treatment should be directed to enhance quality of life, the intent of treatment may be palliative. There is no pain in treatment though but ofcourse chemo-radiation may be accompanied by side effects and depending on his general conditions and immunity he may or may not be able to bear the toxicity but I would personally prefer to give palliative treatment and best supportive care to make patient comfortable.

I have read an article regarding cancer that plastic is the main cause of Cancer, is that true?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, plastics when burnt or heated produces fumes, chemicals and byproducts that are carcinogenic, so they may be one of the factors causing cancer but can't say that they are main reasons as there may be multiple other reasons like lifestyle, lack of exercise, junk fatty food, hormonal imbalance, tobacco, radiation exposure, pollution, pesticides, industrial affluent inheritance that may cause cancer.

All About Prostate Cancer

All About Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is a cancerous tumor in a man’s prostate gland, a small gland that is responsible for producing the seminal fluid which transports and nourishes the sperm. It is a very common type of cancer among men. A few cases of prostate cancer tend to develop slowly while others may progress very fast.

Symptoms

In the initial stages, prostate cancer may not show any symptom. However, in the latter stages, there may be symptoms such as:

  1. Pain in the bones.

  2. Erectile dysfunction.

  3. Urination can get troublesome.

  4. Presence of blood in the semen.

  5. Pain and discomfort in the pelvic region.

Causes-

The exact causes of prostate cancer are not known. It starts to develop when certain cells in the prostate gland start to mutate. These mutations cause these cells to multiply at a very fast rate and thus, soon form tumors. Although the causes are not known, certain factors tend to aggravate this condition; them being:

  1. Color: According to certain medical reports, a darker skin may mean increased chances of suffering from prostate cancer.

  2. Age: The risk of developing prostate cancer tends to increase with age.

  3. Genetics and Family History: Faulty genes could be another cause of this condition. Also, having some member in the family who is diagnosed with this type of cancer only increases the risks of you suffering from them.

  4. Obesity: If you are obese, then you are more likely to develop prostate cancer.

Treatments-

The treatments for prostate cancer include:

  1. Radiation Therapy: In this procedure, high energy rays are used to target and destroy cancer cells. Usually X-rays or protons are used to treat the cancer cells.

  2. Hormone Therapy: Hormone therapy is a type of treatment wherein certain medications are administered to prevent your body from producing testosterone.

  3. Surgery: If the other treatment methods do not produce desired results, then a surgery is carried out for the removal of the prostate gland. In addition to the prostate gland, some adjoining lymph nodes and tissues are also removed.

  4. Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is method of destroying cancer cells by injecting chemicals into the body. The medicines are injected into the veins in the arms.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized oncologist and ask a free question.

Testicular Cancer - Facts You Should Know About It

Testicular Cancer - Facts You Should Know About It

Testicular cancer is mostly witnessed among young adults in the age range of 24–35. It results from the growth of abnormal cells in the testes. It is not the most common type of cancer found in the body, but can pose a serious threat to an individual if not treated early. The cure rate is one of the highest among all kinds of cancer found in the body. This being said, the rate of cure is totally dependent on the stage of detection.

Risk Factors for Testicular Cancer
The historical trend of testicular cancer suggests that white men are prone to this type of cancer than their African, Asian and Latino counterparts. A person with a family history of testicular cancer of HIV is at higher risk of getting this disease. Some other risk factors include Klinefelter’s syndrome and cryptorchidism.

Protection from Testicular Cancer
There is no hard and fast rule of protection. It is suggested that the testicles get evaluated while routine medical check-up. A person with a family history of testicular cancer should opt for a periodic checkup after every three months. In case a patient has already recovered from testicular cancer, routine medical tests are a must to ensure non-recurrence.

Symptoms of Testicular Cancer
The common symptom is a swelling in the testicle. It feels like a thickening of the testicle and is mostly painless. Minor discomfort in the swelling region is often reported. Some other symptoms include back pain, ache in the scrotum and groin, change in the size of the testicle, bloating of the lower abdomen and heavy sensation of the scrotum. There is a rare form of this cancer, which produces a female hormone called estrogen in a man’s body. This disease results in a lack of sexual desire, lump in the affected area, etc. Even less serious testicular cancer might show these symptoms. An oncologist should be immediately consulted if one or more of these symptoms surfaces.

What are the treatment options?
Testicular cancer is mostly cured with the help of a surgery. A follow-up radiation and chemotherapy is suggested by doctors to destroy the surrounding cells. It is done to ensure that the cancer cells do not spread easily and the chance of recurrence is minimal. The rate of cure depends on early detection.

Does testicular cancer affect sexuality?
In most of the cases, testicular cancer is detected in one testicle. If this is the case, the other testicle produces all the hormones needed for sexual drive. It also does not affect sex drive, beard and muscularity. There is also a large section of patients who reported of a difficult sexual life after the surgery. There can be some discomfort in the scrotum as well.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized oncologist and ask a free question.
