Since when it has been started, if its have been for 3- 4 days it will subside by itself. But if its recurrent then give a proper case history.

Mr. Lybrate-user, since you have hypertension and diabetes, it is essential that both these conditions are well in control. Plus you should do regular exercise so as to keep both upper and lower back muscles well toned and relaxed. There are specific exercises for upper and lower back muscles, which should help in overcoming the stiffness in these muscles. Your weight is shown as 91 kgs, but height is not mentioned. It appears you are having excess weight, which can be a mean reason for stiffness in the back.

Lung Cancer: Symptoms & Causes

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Lung Cancer: Symptoms & Causes

Lungs are the most important organ of our body that has the responsibility of taking in the oxygen and releasing out carbon dioxide. When cancer develops in it, the entire body gets imbalanced. Lung cancer leads to more death than any other type of cancer, which is why identifying the symptoms and knowing the causes are instrumental in obtaining a timely diagnosis as well as in prevention of this disease.

Symptoms of Lung Cancer

In the early stages:

  1. Persistent coughing

  2. Chest pain

  3. Bleeding

  4. Fatigue

  5. Loss of appetite

  6. Sudden weight loss

  7. Headaches

  8. Coughing up blood

In the later stages:

  1. Bone pain

  2. Joint pain

  3. Facial paralysis

  4. Neck swelling

  5. Blood clotting

  6. Weakness

  7. Sever chest pain

Causes of Lung Cancer:

  • Smoking: People who smoke are more prone to lung cancer. With the increase in the number of cigarettes you smoke, your chances of getting lung cancer increase too. People who don't smoke but are surrounded by the smokers also have high chances of being affected by this form of cancer.
  • Exposure to Asbestos: Asbestos is a group of mineral, which is present naturally in the environment. Lung cancer can occur due to the inhalation and ingestion of asbestos fibers.
  • Exposure to Ranon Gas: Ranon is a radioactive gas, which is formed naturally on decaying of radioactive elements. It is found in low levels in the air that we breathe and the water that we drink. Consumption of air and water having this gas leads to lung cancer.
  • High Levels of Air Pollution: Presence of high levels of dust particles and pollutants in the air that we breathe can cause lung cancer. 1-2% of lung cancer is caused because of it.
  • High Levels of Arsenic in Drinking Water: Consuming water with arsenic content is harmful as it directly affects the lungs and when the arsenic content is too high, it may lead to lung cancer.
  • Exposure to Chemicals: Exposure to certain chemicals like uranium, coal products, gasoline, diesel exhaust and mustard gas can also cause lung cancer.

Family History of Lung Cancer: Chances of getting lung cancer increase if your parents, child or siblings are already prone to lung cancer.

I have sinus problem and I get headache whenever I go out in breeze or sleep under ceiling fan. What should I do?
1. Do steam inhalation 2-3 times daily with karvol plus inhalant capsule 2. Put otrivin nasal drop one thrice daily 3. Take a course of antibiotic after consulting doctor 4. If you are suffering from chronic sinusitis, take plain xray pns/ct scan of pns or nasal endoscopy after consulting ent specialist to confirm diagnosis 5. If you are having recurrent symptoms, you may have to undergo endoscopic sinus surgery.

I am suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis. Can I eat spicy and oily food? And drink coffee once a day. Will my liver be affected?

You can eat spicy and oily food but in moderation. Its known to cause gastritis which will hamper absorption of TB drugs. Coffee once in a day is OK.

I am 25 year male. I have throat problem. The throat frequently produces cough but I do not have a coughing problem. For the time being it is not giving me problem but I think after some time it can! thats why I want to know what exactly is my problem and how can I come out of it?

I am 25 year male. I have throat problem. The throat frequently produces cough but I do not have a coughing problem. ...
Hello throat issues arise either due to infection of throat proper either tonsils or back of throat pharyngitis. But since you have cough it implies there might be some phlegm trickling back of your throat from sinuses into voice box region causing constant cough. You can benefit by doing steam inhalation which will clear the sinuses and stopping the phlegm trickling down. For cough you can use warm water with honey, lozenges like tusq. If you have allergy issues that triggers an attack of allergic bronchitis leading to allergic cough. Take precautions of avoiding exposure to strong odour, dust exposure. Take care.
