If it is only two days old it is more likely to be infection and you should treat it with antibiotics, antifungal and anti inflammatory under guidance of ENT surgeon.

Fibroadenomas are benign lumps in the breast. Most of the fibroadenomas which are asymptomatic and not growing in size and no complex features on ultrasound, then there is no risk of cancer and these can be safely observed clinically and with regular ultrasound. Most of them disappear with age, most of them hem by menopause. If painful, large (> 4-5 cms) symptomatic, enlarging in size or complex features on ultrasound or if Patient wants it removed, excision Biopsy of the same can be done. If you want to share the reports or discuss this further, feel free to contact me directly.

I had a high blood pressure of 180, and my doctor had found out that there has been a 3 inch tumor on my lungs and my kidney, and recently I had peed a super less blood, but my doctor said that it would not be dangerous but had to check up again whether the tumor is grown or not after 6 months time. Perhaps, I'm afraid it would be a cancer, but based on my research, the most common tumor which can be a cancer is most likely about 7 inch or lesser and the tumor in mine is 3 inch, can this be a signs of cancer? Please would you help! I'm super worry!

Tumors can range from subcentimetre to 40 cms. The diagnosis and the stage determines the prognosis. Better to see a cancer surgeon who would guide you. If you want to share reports and discuss further, feel free to contact me directly.

I have smf and leukoplakia (on my left inner cheek. I have recently gone through the surgery for cancer also (very early stage on left lower lip). I used to chew pan masala and tobacco and also smoked. I had stopped chewing for almost 1 year before being diagnosed of cancer and have also stopped smoking post surgery. Can my smf and leukoplakia be treated? I am having acidity problem and usually have dry mouth also. What are the chances of developing oral cancer again? I had my cancer surgery 4 months back.

Cervical Cancer - Know Its Symptoms And Treatment!

Cervical Cancer - Know Its Symptoms And Treatment!

Cervical cancer occurs when abnormal cells on the cervix grow out of control. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus that opens into the vagina. Cervical Cancer is one of the most common ailments that women suffer from, making it only more important to be taken seriously and treated immediately.

Most cervical cancer is caused by a virus called human papillomavirus, or HPV. You can get HPV by having sexual contact with someone who has it. There are many types of the HPV virus. Not all types of HPV cause cervical cancer. Some of them cause genital warts, but other types may not cause any symptoms.

Most adults have been infected with HPV at some time. An infection may go away on its own. But sometimes it can lead to cervical cancer. That's why it's important for women to have regular screening. A screening can find changes in cervical cells before they turn into cancer. If you treat these cell changes, you may prevent cervical cancer.

Symptoms of Cervical Cancer may include:

  1. Bleeding from the vagina that is not normal, such as bleeding between menstrual periods, after sex, or after menopause.
  2. Persistent abnormal discharge.

Cervical cancer is the easiest gynecologic cancer to prevent, with regular screening tests and follow-up. Two screening tests can help prevent cervical cancer or find it early:

  1. The Pap test (or Pap smear) looks for precancers, cell changes on the cervix that might become cervical cancer if they are not treated appropriately.
  2. The HPV test looks for the virus (human papillomavirus) that can cause these cell changes.

When to Get Screened

You should start getting regular Pap tests at age 21. The Pap test, which screens for cervical cancer, is one of the most reliable and effective cancer screening tests available. The Pap test is the best way to find cervical cell changes that can lead to cervical cancer. Regular Pap tests almost always show these cell changes before they turn into cancer. It's important to follow up with your doctor after any abnormal Pap test result so you can treat abnormal cell changes. This may help prevent cervical cancer.

Treatment-

In spite of being a fatal ailment, over the years various treatments have evolved that deal with this problem effectively. Some of them are:

1. Surgery: One of the effective and oft availed treatment to cure cervical cancer is surgery. Depending on the stage on which the disease is detected, doctors may suggest for a hysterectomy or removing the pelvic nymph nodes.

2. Chemotherapy: This has emerged as the most sought after way of treating any form of cancer. The abnormal growth of cells that triggers cancer in the first place is deterred in this method by administering drugs to destroy them.

Cancer Surgery - How Laparoscopy Can Help Treat It?

Cancer Surgery - How Laparoscopy Can Help Treat It?

Laparoscopy essentially means a surgical technique that aims at minimizing the trauma of general surgery. This is also known as minimally-invasive surgery. This procedure can take the form of endoscopic and robotic technique as well. The laparoscopic technique involves making small incisions, the involvement of a camera and removing/ operating the affected part with the help of light through machines.

Laparoscopic technique in cancerLaparoscopic surgeries are being extensively used for removal of the colon, rectum, stomach, uterus, kidney, lymph node removal etc. The laparoscopic procedure helps to reduce the size of the incision, reduce pain related complications, reduce the hospital stay and a quicker recovery period.

How old is the process?

It’s been a couple of decades since the first procedure of laparoscopy was performed. The first procedure was a gallbladder removal followed by a kidney removal. Laparoscopic procedures for cancer surgeries have only come into effect in the last 5-6 years. Since most cancer surgeries are complicated and demand a holistic involvement of a surgeon, this procedure is not followed by too many surgeons. This being said, cancer-related to the kidney, abdomen and gall bladder, laparoscopic treatments are getting more preference among surgeons.

Understanding the benefits of Laparoscopic surgery

The biggest advantage of this procedure is the minimization of pain. Apart from this, some other benefits include less bleeding, shorter duration of stay at the hospital, less scarring etc. Having said this, a lot of these factors depend on the type and location of the surgery. Typically, cancer-related surgeries involve intense pain and high recovery time. A laparoscopic procedure can help in this regard.

Know the risks involved: Every operation has its fair share of risks and complication- be it conventional surgery or laparoscopic surgery and inexperienced hands and complex surgeries can make the matter worse. Some bigger risks involved in laparoscopic procedures include complications related to the anesthesia, injury to other organs, internal infections and the risk of punctures. Patients who have undergone surgeries before runs more risk than the one who has not undergone any operation.

Cost involved: The cost involved for laparoscopic surgeries are comparatively lesser than conventional surgeries. Then again, the location and complication of the surgery also pay a deciding factor of the final cost involved. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Swelling in lower lip for last 2 days. Reasons are unknown before swelling appears when he woke up in the morning. Today it ruptures and some blood with yellow fluid came out. My father is a smoker for last 20-25 years. Can it be a form of oral cancer. Please reply

Swelling in lower lip for last 2 days. Reasons are unknown before swelling appears when he woke up in the morning. To...
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, since the swelling has been there only for the past two days it's unlikely to be a cancer. So don't be worried. It's more likely an abcess (bacterial infection) that has ruptured. Treatment will require antibiotics. I will advise you to consult a general surgeon or ent specialist or dentist for appropriate treatment. In any case I would strongly advise him to quit smoking since it definitely poses a risk for developing cancer.

I am 47 year and I take RMD (gutkha) from past 18 years regularly. Now I am worrying whether I may affect with cancer like disease. I would like to have through checkup for this. What should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, first and foremost, quit gutkha from now to keep away cancer. You can get a detailed clinical examination done by ent surgeon or oncologist to rule out any ulceration, abnormal growth in even premalignant conditions like white patch or reddish patch, erythroplakia, reduced mouth opening or submucosal fibrosis. You can also take cancer preventive medicines or food rich in antioxidants. Preventive oncology department is available in oncology hospitals to screen cancers before appearance of symptoms.
