Contact of the genital area), your risk of developing cervical cancer is very low. Women who have never been sexually active may therefore decide not to have a cervical screening test when invited. However, you can still have a test if you want one. If you’re not sure, talk to your GP or practice nurse. Find out why cervical screening is offered and when cervical screening is offered, which includes information on why some women may not need a test. Read the answers to more.

dear mam, one of the risk factors for cervical cancers is HPV virus which is sexually transmitted and other risk factors are early onset of sexual intercourse,too many children, many sexual partners, early age pregnancy etc so those who have been sexually not active they are naturally protected from cervical cancers to a great extent but not absolutely and we do see cases of cervical cancers in women who are never sexually active due to multi factorial aetiology .

Can lymphoma be detected by ultrasound?

MD - Radiothrapy, MBBS
Oncologist,
No. Enlarged lymph node can be detected by ultrasound. But lymphoma and enlarged lymph node are not the same thing. For diagnosis of lymphoma fnac or biopsy (preferred) from the lymph node is necessary.

I am 58 years old suffering from follicular lymphoma is it a curable what is your opinion.

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
Follicular lymphoma, in general, has a favorable outcome in the intermediate term, with 5- to 8-year survival rates from 70% to 80%. The failure-free survival (ffs) rate is considerably less, however, at approximately 40%. Furthermore, there is little evidence of flattening of the survival curves with time, suggesting that relapse occurs continually over the course of many years. An exception may be the small percentage of patients who present with localized disease and are treated definitively with radiotherapy, a significant number of whom may be cured with that treatment. So prognosis depends on the stage of the disease and several other factors. Based on these factors a prognostic index has been established known as flipi. Send the investigation reports for proper assessment.

Breast Cancer and Prevention

Research consistently shows that drinking alcohol does increase the risk for breast cancer. Alcohol can increase levels of estrogen and other hormones associated with breast cancer. Alcohol may also increase breast cancer risk by damaging the DNA in the cells

Prevention

Foods and Beverages with Vitamin D such as green tea pomegranate circumin and soy may have an anti carcinogenic effect. Curcurmin has recently been discovered to have a variety of benefits including its role in breast cancer prevention. Dietary intake of soy and atleast eight glasses of pure water daily will help control the risk of breast cancer.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, It may not be a breast cancer. It may be due to a localized infection/ inflammation. Nevertheless, I would advise that you visit your doc, in person, for a clinical breast exam first. Your doc, post evaluation, would be able to recommend the steps next, appropriately. In the meanwhile, do have a healthy and balanced diet, preferably Mediterranean, and have an active lifestyle. Do exercise, de-stress and relax on a daily basis. Stay well hydrated too. You may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate pain. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.

MD
Sexologist, Srinagar
Preoperative Sexual Functioning and Quality of Sexual Life in Colorectal Cancer

While sexual problems are common among colorectal cancer patients, they are not necessarily caused by surgical treatment, Dutch researchers report. The patients may already have sexual issues before surgery.

Noting that there was not much information available on colorectal cancer patients? sexual function and quality of sexual life before surgery, the researchers aimed to describe these aspects for both patients and their partners. They also wanted to use standardized sexual health assessments and compare the scores of those patients and partners to mean norm scores.

To do this, they recruited 136 patients who had been diagnosed with colorectal cancer, but had not yet undergone surgical treatment. One hundred six of the patients? partners were also involved.

To measure sexual function and quality of life, the researchers used several questionnaires.

Male patients and male partners completed the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF), which assesses erectile function, orgasmic function, sexual desire, intercourse satisfaction, and overall satisfaction.

All of the women were given the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), which is used to evaluate arousal, lubrication, orgasmic function, sexual desire, sexual pain, and intercourse satisfaction.

Participants with partners completed the Golombok-Rust Inventory of Sexual Satisfaction (GRISS), which addresses the quality of sexual life. They were also given the Maudsley Marital Questionnaire (MMQ), which examines relationship issues.
Finally, all participants completed an adapted version of the Self-Administered Comorbidity Questionnaire, which provides data on any comorbidities.

Mean norm scores were provided in the manuals of each questionnaire.
The researchers found that when compared to mean norm scores, both male and female colorectal patients had lower scores on the sexual functioning and quality of sexual life domains on the given assessments. Female patients had lower sexual functioning and lower quality of sexual life than male patients. The partners also had lower scores in these areas when compared to mean norm scores. Male partners had lower scores than male patients.

The lower scores could be explained by stress, as there were not many differences between the scores of colon cancer patients and those with rectal cancer. Past research has shown high levels of stress in cancer patients and a link between psychological issues (such as stress, anxiety, and depression) and sexual dysfunction.
In spite of the lower scores, however, the participants? scores on relationship functioning were comparable to the corresponding mean norm scores, suggesting that the sexual issues did not seem to damage relationships.

The findings could help healthcare providers consider the sexual needs of colorectal cancer patients. ?More information provision and/or psychosexual guidance may be needed preoperatively in order to give license to couples to discuss sexual problems and to search for adequate professional support during any point in treatment, especially as the majority of patients do not take the initiative to discuss the treatment options for possible sexual dysfunction,? the authors wrote.

I have one question about cancer how its comes into the bady I did not expect my frnd suffer from cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is a genetic disease. Gene sequence gets disturbed by some injury by chemicals, tobacco, radiation exposure, adulterated food, viruses, pollution, pesticides or even spontaneously. Due to altered genetic make up, cells grow uncontrolled and exhaust body resources. Any age any gender can present with cancer, so be cautious about environment u live in, food you eat and any potential carcinogens

I am 28 years old male I am suffering from night fall since 2 months. Second I have small hard protrusion on my prost...
Night fall is a term applied to the involuntary discharge of semen during sleep. In the beginning such discharges take place by an amorous and sexual dream and consequently erection is attained fully and semen is discharged. Once this disease is not cured, such discharges take place quite frequently even without dreams and erection. Nocturnal Emission is a one kind of problematic condition, which harasses the males at some point in their life. With frequent nocturnal emission males experience fatigue, low desire for lovemaking, problems related to erections and also premature ejaculation. Along with these problems others like back pain, testicular pain, burning during urination, irritated behavior and anxiety can also creep up. homoepathic treatment for night emission in men can not only stop nocturnal emissions but also alleviate side effects of the problem. Adult males generally develop this problem due to weak nerves, lesser muscular strength, fatigue, lethargic lifestyle, diseases and due to side effects of medicines. Also too much alcohol, smoking, drugs or too much coition, hand practice or erotic fantasies and thoughts can cause frequent nocturnal emissions.. HOMOEOPATHY prove best and safe method of treatment in order to cure night emission. Consult me for permanent cure by homoepathic treatment without side effects.

Its 4th stage and doctor advise for surgery but is it safe or not? And now a days my uncle take homeopathic treatment to control it.

Mr. lybrate-user, You haven't specified the type of cancer. Generally the view these days is that stage 4 disease with a fungating tumour or a bleeding tumour can be operated as it makes the patient comfortable and also decreases the outflow of cancer cells from the primary tumour.

Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. Pain/ fatigue/ weakness etc all are commonly seen in cancer patients. For an acute or break through cancer pain, she may require prompt support from her consulting oncologist to help her with the needful analgesics that can relieve her pain. Simultaneously, however, for chronic and persistent pain, she can try the following in addition to her ongoing (pain) medications for relief - (a) eat a wholesome nutritious diet consisting of whole grains and plenty of leafy greens & fresh fruits. Include broccoli, capsicum, tomatoes, garlic, fenugreek, turmeric, leychees, pomegranate, cranberries, red & purple grapes etc all. (b) try including a cup of turmeric milk in her diet plan too, to be taken one to two times daily. Make sure the diet is not only nutritious but also easily digestible. (c) try consuming fresh water fish prepared with extra virgin olive oil. In case she is a vegetarian, you may consider cod liver oil capsules as a substitute/ supplement. (d) ensure that she stays well hydrated. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of clear fluids daily. Should she be losing weight or cachexic, she can take fresh juices, milk etc all to increase calorie and protein intake suitably. (e) additionally, you can consider a good nutritional supplement consisting of zinc, selenium, beta-carotene, vitamin c, vitamin d3, vitamin e & the b-vitamins, on a daily basis. (f) over and above the diet/ nutrition aspect, she needs to streamline her lifestyle too. A relaxed and stress free mind is also known to have positive impacts on one's health. In this connection, I would advise that she practise relaxation techniques including yogasanas (like'savasana' as mentioned above), meditation, listening to soothing music, social interactions, attending or viewing spiritual programmes etc all to destress, stay relaxed and happy. Stress needs to be controlled well throughout to beat fatigue and the associated weaknesses & pain. Staying relaxed and visualizing positive/ pleasant outcomes helps in pain management. As and how she gets over her weakness, she can start including short walks daily too, in her fitness regimen. (g) daily body massage/ foot massage also helps in such conditions. Acupuncture too can be of help in overcoming pain, weakness & fatigue etc all. Would advise take help from a trained masseur/ acupuncturist here. Hope this helps your mother recover from her present body pains soon. Do take care and all the very best. Please connect should you require further traction.
