LUNG Cancer - What You Need to Know

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
LUNG Cancer - What You Need to Know
There's no sure way to prevent lung cancer, but you can reduce your risk if you:

1. Don't smoke. If you've never smoked, don't start. Talk to your children about not smoking so that they can understand how to avoid this major risk factor for lung cancer. Begin conversations about the dangers of smoking with your children early so that they know how to react to peer pressure.

2. Stop smoking. Stop smoking now. Quitting reduces your risk of lung cancer, even if you've smoked for years. Talk to your doctor about strategies and stop-smoking aids that can help you quit. Options include nicotine replacement products, medications and support groups.

3. Avoid secondhand smoke. If you live or work with a smoker, urge him or her to quit. At the very least, ask him or her to smoke outside. Avoid areas where people smoke, such as bars and restaurants, and seek out smoke-free options.

4. Avoid carcinogens at work. Take precautions to protect yourself from exposure to toxic chemicals at work. Follow your employer's precautions. For instance, if you're given a face mask for protection, always wear it. Ask your doctor what more you can do to protect yourself at work. Your risk of lung damage from workplace carcinogens increases if you smoke.

5. Eat a diet full of fruits and vegetables. Choose a healthy diet with a variety of fruits and vegetables. Food sources of vitamins and nutrients are best. Avoid taking large doses of vitamins in pill form, as they may be harmful. For instance, researchers hoping to reduce the risk of lung cancer in heavy smokers gave them beta carotene supplements. Results showed the supplements actually increased the risk of cancer in smokers.

6. Exercise most days of the week. If you don't exercise regularly, start out slowly. Try to exercise most days of the week.

Sepsis is one of the common complications of chemotherapy as blood counts are reduced due to chemotherapy which reduces body's ability to fight any infection. So don't worry sepsis can be managed by course of IV antibiotics. Sometimes systemic infection can cause complications and requires ICU care. So don't worry trust and talk to your treating physician about this.

Dear sir, mouth cancers present as ulceration, over growth, bleeding, difficulty in swallowing or eating, Lymph node enlargement in neck region. For numbness you must see a neurophysician. One need to examine in person to understand what kind of numbness or swelling present, as it is not signifying any particular disease. There may be some tumours having paraneoplastic symptoms but can't relate without examination.

What are the symptoms of cancer. How this disease are handling the people. Why there is no proper medicine and treatment is there. How the cancer is spread to other.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is a disease caused by uncontrolled proliferation of cells of body. It can effect any individual can be caused by carcinogens like tobacco alcohol pollution pesticides radiation etc or lifestyle related like lack of exercise, fatty food, spicy food etc, or may be genetic. Since many factors causing this disease it's difficult to identify the cause hence only the symptoms can be treated routinely unless we know exactly in which individual which gene or signel is faulty. It does not spread from one individual to other but people effected in groups may be exposed to similar risk factors.

Benign Prostate Hyperplasia - Causes And Symptoms

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, M.Ch - Urology
General Surgeon, Bangalore
Benign Prostate Hyperplasia - Causes And Symptoms

Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) is a condition which results in the enlargement of the prostate gland. The Prostate gland is situated near the Urethra (a tube which helps flush out the urine from the bladder). Generally, the chance of developing BPH increases after one crosses the age of 50. But it is yet unknown as to why some men experience more severe symptoms than others.

Causes of BPH
This condition generally occurs because of old age and affects almost all men above the age of 75. It occurs because of the various hormonal changes and changes in cell growth that the body goes through, as one becomes old. Sometimes BPH can set in due to genetics. If BPH sets in due to genetically reasons, it usually is quite severe and affects men before they reach 60.

Symptoms of BPH
Quite a few men who develop BPH, experience no symptoms at all. But when symptoms of BPH, known as lower urinary tract symptoms (LUT) start, they can be either mild or very severe. The severity of the symptoms is not related to the extent of the enlargement. Many a times men with only a mild enlargement complain about severe symptoms, while men with a highly enlarged prostate gland have not complained about any discomfort faced. 

Symptoms of BPH tend to worsen due to cold weather and also because of physical and emotional overexertion. There are certain medicines, which should be avoided if you suffer from BPH, as they have a tendency to worsen your symptoms, for example diphenhydramine, pseudoephedrine, oxymetazoline spray and other antidepressants.

The symptoms of BPH are related to bladder emptying and issues with bladder storage.

Symptoms related to the urine drainage from the bladder are:

  1. Strain while urinating
  2. Weak urine flow
  3. Some dribbling after urination
  4. Sudden urge to urinate
  5. Pain while urinating

Symptoms related to storage of urine in the bladder are:

  1. Waking during the night to urinate
  2. Urinating frequently during the day and at night
  3. Sudden urge to urinate, which may be hard to control

It however, has to be kept in mind that these symptoms may not primarily occur due to prostate enlargement, but are the result of other conditions like urinary tract infections, prostatitis, prostate cancer, neurological disorders and even diabetes. Thus, it is essential that you visit a doctor and get the cause for these symptoms diagnosed properly.

Sir, my fiancee is having breast cancer and she was getting treated with chemotherapy. Now she will treated with radiation. She has been diagnosed with ER/PR positive. So doctor has stopped her periods & told that it will be stopped for 5 years. So I want to know that can she try for pregnancy after marriage in between those 5 years? & What are the effects, merits or demerits.

FMAS, MS
General Surgeon, Gandhinagar
Hello dear lybrate-user, hi Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* Status of the ovaries on ultrasound and MRI in some cases, with certain lab evaluations for the hormones are mandatory to answer this question.* But it is not advisable for her to try for pregnancy for minimum 3 years period post radio therapy & if there is no menses for 5 years there is no issue of thinking in that direction. Hope this will help you for sure. Wishing her fine recovery and a very good health ahead. Regards dear take care. May god bless her with all new rays of hopes this Diwali.

It can be multiple lipomas. Some times the lumps are of neural origin. Examination will let us know what type they are. Many disappear of their own but sometimes when they cause concern they need to be removed,

One of my friends is suffering from breast cancer and it is said that intense pain is there. How can we be away from cancer?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
If the question is for your friend I would say that cancer has advanced to a state where it is involving chest wall thereby nerves. She requires palliative therapy. If you want to know for yourself, my reply is let breast be allowed to function for the purpose god created it for, i. E feed new born with your milk, maintain good hygiene while lactating, learn how to self examine breaths standing before a mirror, approach a surgeon or a gynecologist if in doubt if you notice swelling in breast, bleeding from nipples, or any abnormal discharge from nipple, look into both axillea for any swellings. When you visit a doctor give clear history about your age at menarche, no. Of children, lactating history, menstrual history, family history especially if your mother or sisters have any breast disease or cancer. My suggestion; when in doubt approach doctor right away, don't postpone. Thanks.
