It is necessary that if my Mom had Breast Cancer then at certain age I can also get diagnosed? Please advice me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Not necessarily all breast cancer are genetic. Most of them are due to life style related or due to hormonal imbalance. Still you should do breast self examination on monthly basis five days after periods are completed and after forty or may be earlier you can go for annual mammography.

My mother (Age 50) was a diabetic, adeno carcinoma stomach (since 1 year) with heart stent was placed 5 years ago. She has edema in her legs, ankle, thigh since 3 days. When we consulted regional cancer centre they have tested the blood. In blood test we have noticed that the albumin is 1.4 gm/dL and protein was 3.4 gm/dL. She is feeling heavy in her abdomen and we have gone for tapping and found that no fluid was coming out and still my mother was feeling heavy in her abdomen serum creatinine test was normal (1). She was using furosemide (water pill) but she was not getting urine frequently it was 500 mL to 1000 mL per day she can't eat anything she is feeling heavy. Doctor said that eat high protein food we are giving 3 eggs per day and milk with protein powder. What to do now? Please give me a suggestion.

Mam, please see a cardiologist also. The edema can be due to the cardiac condition. Please get a Pet-CT to assess the situation of the stomach cancer. If she has omental metastasis even then she can have abdominal distention with loss of appetite. You haven't mentioned any ultrasound or CT report. 400 ml urine is enough for a normal adult. Hence she needs further investigation for us to have a clear picture.

I am a 21 year old I want to know that the symptoms of cancer and type of cancer which generally occur in our body. How we secured whole life from this disease and secured our loved ones.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is an abnormal over growth of few cells of our body. They become autonomous and uncontrolled as there is some fault in the genes which control and regulate the growth. This faulty gene may be due to exposure or injury by chemicals or carcinogens, tobacco chewing or smoking, pollution pesticides radiation exposure etc. The cancer can affect any and every part of body. One should be aware of hie or her body changes. Anything new you notice about your body, do not ignore, like it may be some pain less lump, abnormal bleeding or periods, discharge, unexplained weight loss, prolonged fever, weakness, cough etc anything, one must consult a nearby doctor. Avoid any kind of chemical exposure and carcinogens.

Biopsy test is done to rule out if the lump is cancerous or not. Only after the result of biopsy one can say anything.
