Hi this and from past 10 years I am having fribo adenoma on my right breast and twice I have been operated but again and again coming back.

There is no need to get it removed unless it is causing significant symptoms or is rapidly growing in size or there is a recent change in its character or there is some reason for suspicion. Harmless fibroadenoma may be left alone but with monthly observation by self examination and periodic examination by a general surgeon.

Hi My mother of aged 69 years suffering from final stage stomach metastatic adeno carcinoma Ascites fluid collecting in abdomen very quickly We thrice removed of fluid by paracentesis in month about 2 to 3 liter each time. As per oncology advise we are not gone for chemotherapy treatment because of age factor. How often paracentesis can be done and how much water can remove each time?

Yes, definitely elderly do very bad with chemotherapy and should be given only in patients having good performance status and nutrition status. In those who has both of these on lower side should have some other options which does not have much side effects. If you don't treat primary disease then frequency to collect fluid in abdomen will start increasing may be you need to take it out so often like 3 to 4 days.

I have the habit of smoking but not frequently is there any symptoms for lung cancer.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
More heavily a person smokes more risk he has for lung cancer. Also how many years one has smoked also increases the risk, on the other hand many non smokers also get lung cancer, that means there is definite risk of cancer with smoking, but it is not only the factor that may lead to lung cancer, there are other factors also that may cause lung cancer. Coming to symptoms you have asked, first thing to know is that most of the lung cancer patients get symptoms when their cancer has already reached an advanced stage. In other words, most of the patients have no symptoms when the lung cancer has just begin. The symptoms that may suggest the disease suspicion are; cough of some short duration, blood coughed out, chest pain, some times fever and loss of weight. Few patients may feel breathing difficulties. And lung cancer has cure only in early stage and not in advanced stage, so its anyone's guess that how risky it is, if someone gets symptoms of lung cancer, which occur usually at advance stage.

How the cancer cells produced in our body can be destroyed without the help of cemo?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cell grow in our body and are routinely shed off as they grow old and replaced by new cells. This production and shedding off is regulated by genes which control it's number. Whenever this becomes disbalanced then production may be more than shedding off and cells grow uncontrolled. This may be due to faulty genes which is triggered by some carcinogens like tobacco, pollution, pesticides, industrial affluent, radiation exposure, viral infection etc Cancer is treated by combination of surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy etc.

To be operated for any cancer, the general condition of the patient should be good. If surgery is not possible as per the oncologist, systemic chemotherapy may be an option.

Hi, I'm a 26 years old female and have been experiencing a swollen lymp node in my armpit for the last two yrs. It is moveable and painless but my arm pains when I do chores or any other lifting. It felt very prominent when I sleep to the side where it is located. Is this serious?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear, being there for last two years gives the impression it is not malignant. It may be infected cyst. Better is to get it removed. It may become painless after medical treatment but the it will get repeated infection and give rise to pain.

How to I identity the skin cancer before it come. And is that a spreadable disease.

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
growth of the skin. It starts from cells that begin as normal skin cells and transform into those with the potential to reproduce in an out-of-control manner. Unlike other cancers, the vast majority of skin cancers have no potential to spread to other parts of the body (metastasize) and threaten your life. it does not spread to other parts of the body. no danger to lifee. thanks

If the spinal compression is causing symptoms like weakness of arms and legs, then surgery is needed first as failing that the paralysis will worsen. Once he recovers from that, we can immediately start the chemo. For adenocarcinoma we also have lot of targeted chemotherapy oral medicines which can be given, so ask you Oncologist to do tests for those if not already done.

What is a cancer and HIV how it will come to human life how we control any precautions is there.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Hiv is contagious infection caused through sexual contact, unhygienic conditions or by getting transferred by using of infected syringes and needles or any time through infected blood transfusion. Many a times there is severe immune deficiency in the body and such infection is caught easily. Cancer is not contagious but immune deficiency is the cause in addition to other causes. It can happen due to chromosomal changes in the body or by things which constantly irritate the body such as mouth cancers caused by chewing paan masala, it is a long subject.
