There’s no cure for multiple myeloma. However, there are treatments that can help ease the pain, reduce complications, and slow the progression of the disease. Treatments are only used if the disease is getting worse. Your doctor is unlikely to suggest treatment if you aren’t experiencing any symptoms. Instead, your doctor will closely monitor your condition for signs that the disease is progressing. This often involves regular blood and urine tests. If you need treatment, common options include the following: Targeted Therapy Targeted therapy medications block a chemical in myeloma cells that destroys proteins, causing the cancer cells to die. The drugs that may be used during targeted therapy include bortezomib (Velcade) and carfilzomib (Kyprolis). Both are administered intravenously, or through a vein in your arm. Biological Therapy Biological therapy medications use your body’s immune system to attack myeloma cells. The pill form of thalidomide (Thalomid), lenalidomide (Revlimid), or pomalidomide (Pomalyst) is usually used to boost the immune system. Lenalidomide is similar to thalidomide, but it has fewer side effects. It also appears to be more potent. Chemotherapy Chemotherapy is an aggressive form of drug therapy that helps kill fast-growing cells, including myeloma cells. Chemotherapy drugs are often given in high doses, especially before a stem cell transplant. The medications may be given intravenously or taken in pill form. Corticosteroids Corticosteroids, such as prednisone and dexamethasone, are often used to treat myeloma. They can balance the immune system by reducing inflammation in the body, so they’re often effective in destroying myeloma cells. They can be taken in pill form or given intravenously. Radiation Therapy Radiation therapy uses strong beams of energy to damage myeloma cells and stop their growth. This type of treatment is sometimes used to kill myeloma cells quickly in a certain area of the body. For example, it may be done when a cluster of abnormal plasma cells form a tumor called a plasmacytoma that causes pain or destroys bone. Stem Cell Transplants Stem cell transplants involve replacing diseased bone marrow with healthy bone marrow from a donor. Before the procedure, blood-forming stem cells are collected from your blood. The multiple myeloma is then treated with radiation therapy or high doses of chemotherapy. Once the diseased tissue can be destroyed, the stem cells can be infused into your body, where they move into the bones and start rebuilding bone marrow. Alternative medicine has become a popular way to cope with the symptoms of multiple myeloma and the side effects of treatment for the condition. While they can’t treat multiple myeloma, you may want to talk to your doctor about: Acupuncture Aromatherapy Massage Meditation Relaxation methods You should discuss any alternative therapies with your doctor before trying them to ensure they’re safe for your health.

Do not think of extreme conditions. Every time you fall sick it does not mean that you have cancer. You could still be having some residual infection in the chest or some times cough takes little longer to settle down. Consult your doctor again and if required a chest x ray and a blood test can be done and a corse of antibiotics should be given.

Am I more at risk if my relatives have cancer and what do cancer stages and grades mean?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS

Ask Free Question
Having more first degree and second degree relatives affected with cancer does put you in a higher than average risk bracket, but it does not stand true for all variety of cancers. We need to work on you family tree and details of your relatives illnesses to be more appropriately caution and not unnecessarily worry you. Cancer grade implies the aggressiveness in the behaviour of the cancer and stage implies the risk of the disease spreading and chances of cure of the disease. The higher the stage and grade, the more bad it is.

What is the survival in number of years for a Breast cancer survivor, who is free from any recurrences/secondaries after treatment with all three modalities (Surgery, Chemo & Radio therapy)

Dear sir, now that more studies in terms of genetic analysis is being done, we know there is a group who respond very well and are long survivors. It also depends on the hormonal status ER PR positive patients are better responders. So it is difficult to say in general as the survival will depend on Histopathology, grade and lymph node status, ER PR status, initial stage and then newly analysed genetic status. Earlier stage more number of relapse free survival, receptor positive, better survival etc.

Hi lybrate-user I think you should just go ahead and remove the fibroadenoma by a good surgeon. That wll relieve you from the tension.

You must get the lump checked by a doctor and get sonography and fine needle aspiration done. You are young that's why we would like to avoid mammography for routine screening. Most likely it will be benign fibroadenoma but still one must be cautious.

Your psa levels are in doubtful range. Medicines are required only if difficulty in urination is there. Cancer has be ruled out. Physical examination is essential for this. Prostate biobsy may be required if clinical suspicion of cancer.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, as far as I know and understand, following are the probable complications and side effects of a stomach cancer surgery - - being a difficult surgery often, there can be bleeding from the surgery, blood clots etc all. There can also be damage to nearby organs during the surgical procedure. - the patient will usually not be allowed to eat/drink anything for at least a few days post total or partial gastrectomy. This allows time for the digestive tract to heal properly. - while recovering from surgery, one may have side effects like nausea, heartburn, pain in abdomen, diarrhea etc all especially after taking food. Dumping of food into the intestines happens too quickly after eating. The side effects often get better over time though. - one will require to eat smaller meals, more frequently. This is dependent upon how much of the stomach is actually removed. - as a surgical removal (total/ partial) can interfere with vitamins absorption, one may require to be on vitamin supplements as appropriate. Last but not the least, having said the above-mentioned, I would advise you nevertheless to get in touch with an experienced/ expert onco surgeon specializing in gastric cancers, who can educate you more on the risks/ complications versus the benefits involved. You can take a decision accordingly. Also, I would like to emphatically add hereby that an integrative treatment (peri-operative) with natural/ alternative medicines can certainly help fasten recovery and get over convalescence soon. Hope this helps

Cancer can have many symptoms depending on where the cancer has arisen from. For example, if there is a lung cancer, it can present as coughing with lot of sputum or blood. It may present as a lump or swelling like in breast cancer, etc prevention is always better than cure. So it is always wise to prevent things that cause cancer, eg. Smoking. Any cancer if detected early, can be treated ususally. So we should be more aware and guarded. It is not necessary that a person has diabetes if he/she has cancer. I hope that helps you.
