Hi Doctor, I had total thyroidectomy due to Thyroid cancer Parathyroids were preserved, I am taking calcium supplement of 2000 mg, calcium was 8.6 post surgery, after 50 days now calcium reduced to 7.But I am "ASYMPTOMATIC" My albumin is normal. What could be the reason for low calcium and I am ASYMPTOMATIC not understanding this?.

Dear Ravi, The transplanted parathyroids take time to start functioning normally again.During surgery their blood supply can get compromised and they may not function well again. Meanwhile you can consult your doctor and increase the dose of calcium. Get the serum calcium repeated after 1 month and then we can reassess what to do. Regards.

Dear Please get urine examination done to see if you are left with residual infection. Also see that you have usg done with postvoid residual urine, full bladder volume and wall thickness on full bladder with size of prostate. If you are constipated also solve that because passage of hard motions results in fissure giving you same complaints which will not respond to flow dart +. So let me see the reports and then only I can give you correct advice.

Please avoid tea/coffee/soda based drinks and alcohol. Spicy and fried food should also be avoided. Do this for a couple of weeks and take tablet rabeprazole twice daily. Follow up in 2weeks.

You need to get a repeat Ultrasound of KUBP region & Trans-rectal Ultrasound for Detailed examination of the prostate. A repeat PSA after 2 weeks. If its still high Then MRI/Prostatic biopsy should be done after consulting Uro-Surgeon.

When Should You Opt for Palliative Care?

When Should You Opt for Palliative Care?

To start with, it is important to understand what palliative care exactly is? 

Palliative care is specialised care provided for a patient with advanced cancer to relieve them of the stress and symptoms of the same. The main aim of palliative care is to improve the quality of life for the patient as well as the family. 

To treat an advanced cancer and to care for a patient with such an illness requires time and effort. Your family and doctors may not be able to offer you the necessary care when the disease is severe and life-limiting. In such cases, palliative care proves to be quite helpful to the suffering patient. 

This treatment needs specialized doctors and a team of attendants who are responsible for the betterment of the patient’s moral and mental strength. 

Improves your quality of life 
Palliative care aims at providing relief from pain, depression, anxiety, fatigue, sleeping difficulty, constipation, nausea and loss of appetite. It will also help in dealing with the suffering and agony that one might feel due to the illness which in turn improves your quality of life. 

When is it required? 
Palliative care is for the patients who have been diagnosed with advanced cancer which might or might not be cured, and thus the patient has to bear the symptoms and the stress of the disease for life time.it is considered when either the treatment may mot be effective or patient may not be fit for treatment. Palliative care helps in bringing down the stress levels, in turn, reducing the symptoms of a severe disease within. 

What can be expected from Palliative care? 
Besides the primary medical treatment, you can opt for palliative care for the overall improvement of the patient’s life. There are medical, emotional and other practical needs of the patients which need to be addressed in the right manner and it would be prudent to let to let a specialist take care of the same. This will not only help the patient feel better but also alleviate the symptoms. 

Palliative care specialists work closely with patient, their doctor and the family of the patient to provide extra support. At any given point, if you feel that any of your loved ones needs palliative care, you can discuss it with the doctor and go for it. In such difficult situation, it is best to seek help and make the life easier for both the patient and the family.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

The neck ultrasound will spot the nodal metastases but these findings have to be correlated with Direct Video-Laryngoscopy findings and confirmed by CT or PET-CTscans to stage the cancer and plan the treatment.

All About Melanoma

MD, DNB, FIDP, FIL

All About Melanoma

Melanoma is a condition which mainly indicates a severe malfunction of the melanocytes or the melanin producing cells of the body. These cells are responsible for giving you your skin colour, tone and complexion. Usually, a person suffering from melanoma will have many normal and irregular moles as well as melanoma in the eye and digestive tracts too.

Some general facts on melanoma are mentioned below:

  1. Melanoma is common in young women and causes many deaths.

  2. More than one million new instances of skin cancer or melanoma are analyzed every year.

  3. There has been a 2000% increase in rate of melanoma since the year 1930. One out of fifty get affected by this cancer.

  4. There has been a high rise in the rate of melanoma from 1970 to 2008. There has been an 800% increase in young women and 400% increase in case of similar aged men.

  5. Early recognition makes melanoma treatable. It is screened for growth very minimally.

Primary causes Melanoma may be caused primarily due to these causes:

The most primary cause of melanoma is ultraviolet light (UV) in people with a low level of skin pigment. The UV light might be from either the sun or from different sources, for example, tanning devices. Around 25% of cases occur from or in the form of moles.

The individuals who work on airplanes seem to have an expanded danger, due to more contact with UV rays.

Ultraviolet UV light of wavelengths between 315 - 280 nm from the sun react with the skin cell DNA and result in a kind of direct DNA harm called cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPDs).

In order to stay away or avoid melanoma, you should:

  1. Avoid the sun at peak hours.

  2. Examine your skin at times for some kind of change.

  3. Keep away from tanning salons. Melanoma is a dangerous form of cancer and causes a lot of deaths. You should stay away from anything that causes melanoma. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Cervical Cancer - Can It Be Treated?

MD - General Medicine, D.M. Medical oncology

Cervical Cancer - Can It Be Treated?

Cervical cancer is a cancer that affects only ‘females’. Although it is the most preventable cancer on Earth, it kills maximum number of women.

Cervical cancer occurs when abnormal cells on your cervix, the lowermost part of your uterus that opens into the vagina, grow out of control. The cancer is treatable in early stages when it hasn’t spread to other parts of your body. However, at later stages, it can be fatal.

The scariest part about cervical cancer is that its symptoms are so general that they are easily missed by most women.

Having said that, the common symptoms of cervical cancer include the following:

  • Vaginal bleeding in between menstrual periods, after intercourse, or after menopause
  • Persistent pain in the lower abdomen or pelvic area
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Abnormal vaginal discourse

Causes of Cervical Cancer
Most cervical cancers are caused by a virus called human papilloma virus or HPV. This virus is spread by having unprotected sexual contact just like HIV/AIDS and genital herpes viruses.

There are many strains of the HPV and not all strains cause cervical cancer.

Diagnosis of Cervical Cancer
Since cervical cancer is spread sexually, it’s important for women to undergo Pap smear, a regular diagnostic test for early detection of this cancer. A pap smear is a cytological test in which cells from a woman’s cervix are taken and seen under a microscope. This test can identify changes in cervical cells before they become cancerous. If you observe these abnormal changes in cervical cells and treat them early, you are safe.

It’s recommended that sexually active women get a pelvic exam and a pap test every year to rule out malignancies in the cervix and nip this ‘female’ cancer in the bud.

Treatment of Cervical Cancer
Cervical cancer have several stages, and the treatment for most stages includes:

  • Surgery such as a hysterectomy may be opted for, which means removal of the entire uterus along with removal of pelvic lymph nodes. This implies you will never be able to bear children in future.
  • Sometimes, both the ovaries and the fallopian tubes are also removed, if cancer has spread upwards. This may result in a premature menopause.
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation

Treatment for cervical cancer depends on how much the cancerous cells have spread. If it’s spread, your oncologist may suggest a combination of the above treatments.
Information and knowledge about this preventable yet lethal cancer should be disseminated among women, especially young women who have not become sexually active yet. And do remember that safe sexual practices like use of condoms and regular pap tests will save you from this cancer. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
