I have a white patch inside my lips. But it does not painful I chew tobacco last 2.5 years Does it causes cancer? I am 18 years old. How to treat them.

Hello lybrate-user, chewing tobacco is definitely really bad for health. It can cause cancer too. At your young age, you should abstain from such bad habits and even stop your friends from doing so. It is a very poor addiction which will damage your oral health. Your teeth will be stained making you look ugly and your mouth will be full of non healing ulcers if you don't give up this bad habit. Its my strong request to you to stop chewing tobacco. If you feel difficult to abstain, I can prescribe some medicines for same. However, your will power is most important for leaving this bad habit.

Diabetes and Cancer - How They Are Spreading Like Fire?

Diabetes and Cancer - How They Are Spreading Like Fire?

There was an era where we had deadly infections like plague and polio causing death of thousands of people. We still have occasional outbreak of swine flu, but by and large, infections are quite controlled. The new killer diseases are caused because of the lifestyle we have adapted and the damage we have done to the environment. High intake of processed foods, artificial chemicals in our foods, sedentary lifestyle with very minimal to no physical activity, couching over the computers; the list is quite long.

All these have led to diseases like diabetes and cancer that were not so common about say few decades ago:

Detailed observation has revealed that both these new epidemiologic diseases have a close correlation. There are factors, which induce diabetes and diabetes in turn and in some cases, diabetes inducing agents, can cause cancer also. It has also been observed that mortality is severely increased if diabetic patients are diagnosed with cancer. There are two types of diabetes. While type 1 is mostly hereditary, type 2 is lifestyle induced and the age at which this is being diagnosed is taking a severe plunge. Adolescents and teenagers are being diagnosed for diabetes. Cancer, on the other hand, is of various types (leukaemia, melanoma, myeloma, etc.) and can affect various organs (lung, breast, prostate, stomach, liver, etc.).

The medical community is yet to decipher the disease pattern of both these conditions. While there is no definite correlation between diabetes and all types of cancer, some types of cancer are definitely correlated with a definite reason identified, pancreatic and liver cancer for instance. The high amounts of insulin that diabetic patients are exposed to causes changes in liver and pancreas including fatty liver and cirrhosis, here the incidence of cancer is higher. The linkage is not very clear in lung and intestinal cancers and also there is no link between prostate cancer and diabetes.

Diabetes is considered as a state of chronic inflammation and leads to conditions like hyperinsulinemia (higher levels of insulin in the blood) hyperglycemia (higher levels of sugar in the blood). These are believed to aggravate the neoplastic process of cancer formation, thereby inducing cancer at a greater pace and also increasing the mortality rates.

The following are risk factors that are applicable to both age, physical activity, diet, obesity, drinking and smoking. It is also possible that onset of one can be followed by the other. As noted earlier, more detailed research is awaited to establish a definite linkage, but the correlation cannot be ignored at all.

Both these new epidemics are here to stay and since they have a common set of factors, we need to work on ways to contain them.

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

Without treatment, APML has a very short median survival of less than one month resulting from uncontrolled bleeding. However, with modern therapy, APL is associated with the highest proportion of patients who are presumably cured. Patients younger than age 30 years and those who present with a white blood cell count less than 10,000, have superior event-free survival. Adverse risk factors a total white blood cell count greater than 10,000 and a platelet count less than or equal to 40,000. Using these two parameters, three prognostic categories could be distinguished, with the following estimated probabilities of three-year relapse-free survival (RFS): -Low risk: WBC <10,000 and platelets >40,000; RFS 98 percent -Intermediate: WBC <10,000 and platelets <40,000; RFS 89 percent -High risk: WBC >10,000; RFS 70 percent These three risk groups originally proposed by the PETHEMA group can be collapsed into two groups based entirely on the WBC count (< or >10,000 at diagnosis). That is, the platelet count is not necessary to distinguish a low/intermediate risk group when arsenic trioxide is used early in therapy. Studies have demonstrated that patients in this risk group have superior outcome when treated with All Trans Retinoic Acid (ATRA) plus arsenic trioxid in comparison to ATRA plus anthracycline-based chemotherapy. In short, if you are in the low or intermediate risk group, the prognosis is good. With cure rates of 80-90%. Obviously nobody can give a guarantee of cure. Marriage does not depend on your cure rate. It depends on the outlook of you and your partner. Life is any ways unpredictable. It is your decision. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.
