You do need to go for a surgery - may not be for totally removing the cancer - but to enable him eat for the rest of his days and have good quality of life.

Hello Sir, You can try medication for 3-6 months and see if it helps with your symptoms. Your urologist can prescribe you the medication. A particular tablet which the urologist may prescribe needs to be taken for atleast 6 months before you can see some benefit. Hence the time period of 6 months that I mentioned above. Another type of tablet cans how improvement in 3 months. If after 6-9 months your symptoms have not improved then you can consider surgery. Hope this helps you Thank you.

Are you breastfeeding? You set your massaged your breasts and expressed out milk. Hence the question. If you are breastfeeding then the most common cause of Breast lumps is Galactocele. Which is due to collection of milk. Massage with cold compresses is useful in this condition however it's imperative that you see a breast surgeon or surgical oncologist. They can examine you and if needed order an ultrasound of the breast with SOS aspiration of the collection. The condition does not need any antibiotics as it is sterile. However we need to rule out abscess or mastitis which will need antibiotics. Moreover if you are breast feeding then only a few antibiotics can be given. If you are not lactating then we need to confirm if it is milk or pus that is getting expressed and then treat the cause accordingly. Hope I was able to solve your query. If you still have any questions, feel free to consume directly.

My daughter has a lump in her breast. Significantly large. I got her an FNAC test done and the report came back saying it was a benign fibroadenoma. The doctor recommended a few months of Vitamin E and Linolenic Acid tablets. Despite over 4 months of taking the same, the size has only increased. Do you suggest any other medicine. Can stress be a reason for this?

There is no specific food or diet which protects you from recurrence. But studies have shown that people who eat healthy and exercise regularly after completing cancer treatment live longer and also tolerate treatment better in case of recurrence. Don't eat junk, don't overeat, exercise daily, do yoga. All these things have a supporting role.

Lasers - Can They Cause Cancer?

Lasers - Can They Cause Cancer?

Today, Laser treatment is no longer as rare as it once was. Laser treatment is in fact the third most common type of cosmetic surgery performed. However, it is still surrounded by a number of misconceptions. One such doubt that many people have is whether Lasers have the ability to cause cancer. To understand this, one must first understand what laser therapy is.

Laser is a short form for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. There are many different kinds of lasers and laser mediums. These lasers can be used by doctors for cosmetic and surgical procedures as well as by engineers at constructions sites etc depending on the type of Laser. Though simple lasers are easily available, they should be used carefully.

With some lasers, radiation is emitted as a form of light. In others, this radiation may be in the form of ultraviolet or infrared rays and thus be invisible to the naked eye. This radiation should not be confused with the radiation from radioactive substances or microwave and radio waves. The radiation emitted by lasers is largely considered to be safe and does not harm the human body.

This radiation emitted by lasers does not use the same ultraviolet wavelengths as the UV radiation of sunlight. Radiation from laser beams is known as non-ionising radiation. It stays at the surface of the skin and does not penetrate into the cells. When laser treatment is used for hair removal it only penetrates to the hair follicle and no further. Thus, it does not cause skin cancer and does not damage our cellular DNA. Keeping this in mind, laser treatment can also be used for hair removal around the reproductive area without a worry.

Lasers used for cosmetic procedures are known to be every effective in the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines. It can also be sued to reverse the damage caused by excessive exposure to sunlight such as sun spots and dark patches on the skin. For these types of treatment, lasers may either be used to vaporize the top most skin layer or resurface the skin and remove wrinkles without peeling the skin. Both these types of lasers, promote the formation of collagen which is what actually helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Lasers are also often used to treat and remove pre-cancerous lesions. Thus, instead they can reduce a person’s risk of developing skin cancer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.
