Black scar is not a symptom of cancer. So no need to be worry . Just check your own breat by self breast examination technique and if any lump found then do a mamography of both breast. If no mass then better to meet a skin specialist

Dear sir, cancer as depicted by symbol crab is actually uncontrolled growth of cells usually triggered by lifestyle related factors like smoking, alcohol, pollution, sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, use of chemicals and preservatives etc. Remedy is to avoid known carcinogens and if one suffers then take treatment according to type and stage of tumour.

I was diagnosed throat cancer I went through chemotherapy and radiation and now the treatment is over but now my food pipe got squeezed and I am in a state where I cannot take liquid food also what should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Please get an endoscopy done, both laryngoscopy and gi endoscopy. If narrowing is present, dilatation can be done by gastroenterologist. Sometimes esophagitis can also cause swallowing difficulty or fungal infection post treatment can also cause dysphagia. You need to know the cause to treat it correctly. You can inhale steam to relieve swelling. Usually four to six weeks post treatment side effects fade off and situation is better.

Adrenal Cancer - What are Its Symptoms

MBBS & Post Graduate course in Diabetology, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), CCEBDM
Endocrinologist, Bangalore
Adrenal Cancer - What are Its Symptoms

Cancer can affect even small glands like the adrenal glands. Adrenal glands are responsible for the production of hormones like cortisol and aldosterone. These glands are located above the kidneys and have two parts; the cortex and the medulla. Adrenal cancer generally affects the cortex of the adrenal glands. This type of cancerous tumour is rare and can be difficult to diagnose.

Most adrenal cancer symptoms are triggered by an excessive production of estrogen and androgen. Symptoms can also be caused by the pressure put on other organs by the tumour. Adrenal cancer symptoms are most easily noticeable in children as this is the stage where the body is changing and developing. Some of these symptoms are:

  1. Facial hair growth
  2. Excessive pubic and underarm hair
  3. An enlarged penis or clitoris
  4. Early onset of puberty in girls
  5. Development of enlarged breasts in boys

Symptoms of adrenal cancer in adults includes:

  1. Excessive weight gain in the abdomen and above the collar bone
  2. High blood pressure
  3. Irregular menstruation
  4. Easy bruising
  5. Depression
  6. Frequent urge to urinate
  7. Muscle cramps

Additionally, men with adrenal cancer that causes excessive estrogen production may notice an enlargement of breast tissue and tenderness in the area. Women suffering from excessive androgen production triggered by adrenal cancer may notice their voice deepening and facial hair growth. In most cases, adrenal cancer symptoms in women do not appear until the tumour presses on other organs. This includes symptoms like pain around the tumor, a feeling of fullness in the abdomen and difficulty eating because of this feeling.

The cause of adrenal cancer has not yet been determined, but conditions such as Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, Li-Fraumeni syndrome, familial adenomatous polyposis and multiple endocrine neoplasia can increase a person’s risk of suffering from this disease. A thorough physical examination and a detailed medical history is required to diagnose this disease. The doctor will also need a blood test and urine test. Additional tests that may be required include:

  1. Biopsy of the tumor
  2. CT scan
  3. MRI scan
  4. PET scan
  5. Adrenal angiography

Adrenal cancer can be cured if diagnosed in its early stages. There are three types of treatment for adrenal cancer; surgery to remove the adrenal gland, chemotherapy and radiation. However, adrenal cancer can recur and hence it is important to schedule and maintain regular check-ups with your doctor.

The kind of lumps you are mentioning is mostly due to fat collection like lipoma and they are benign if soft in consistency. But still you must see clinician once to be exactly be sure of it.

My brother aged 13 has sarcoma tumour in his legs below the fingers, he has undergone 4 chemos with each chemo session lasting 3 days at TATA MEMORIAL. Doctor there says that they have to cut his feet for safety saying that this will ensure that the disease doesn't returns back. Is this not curable with surgery or is there any other way to ensure safety and well being of him.

How serious is Prostrate, what is the stage of must surgery, is there any chance of curing by medicine ?

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Delhi
First of all there is no definite cure for prostatic enlargement as this gland keeps on increasing in size under influence of male hormones. Medicines can halt the progression of size but once you stop medication, the growth of the gland recurs. Similarly surgery can only remove the excessive gland tissue present at that particular time, It won't stop the gland from further growth. So your decision to undergo surgery depends upon control of symptoms by drugs. If the difficulty in urination is relieved by medicines then you don't require surgery. If your problem exists despite medicines then you have to go under the knife.

I am 64yrs. Old. I am taking urimax-f for the last one year for enlarged prostrate. How long should I take it?

I am 64yrs. Old. I am taking urimax-f for the last one year for enlarged prostrate. How long should I take it?
Since when you have this condition? to help control the symptoms of an enlarged prostate, try to: limit beverages in the evening. Don't drink anything for an hour or two before bedtime to avoid middle-of-the-night trips to the toilet. Limit caffeine and alcohol. They can increase urine production, irritate the bladder and worsen symptoms. Limit decongestants or antihistamines. These drugs tighten the band of muscles around the urethra that control urine flow, making it harder to urinate. Go when you first feel the urge. Waiting too long might overstretch the bladder muscle and cause damage. Schedule bathroom visits. Try to urinate at regular times such as every four to six hours during the day to" retrain" the bladder. This can be especially useful if you have severe frequency and urgency. Follow a healthy diet prescribed by registered dietitan. Obesity is associated with enlarged prostate. Stay active. Inactivity contributes to urine retention. Even a small amount of exercise can help reduce urinary problems caused by an enlarged prostate. Urinate and then urinate again a few moments later. This practice is known as double voiding. Keep warm. Colder temperatures can cause urine retention and increase the urgency to urinate. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

I am suffering from Emilio blastoma tumor on my lower jaw.I already had a surjery 2 years back,but it again swelled. Please tell me what to do ?

What was the surgery done 2yrs ago. If a currettage was done there is a chance of recurrence. Get an OPG done to confirm recurrence If it is a recurrence then you should go for resection of the jaw bone with reconstruction. this will be a permanent cure.

Hello sir I have early osmf My question is that chances of occurring cancer in advanced stage of osmf Or Also there chances of occurring cancer in early stage? In short cancer may occur only after advance stage of osmf?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS

OSMF manifests as restriction in mouth opening. Apart from predisposing a person to cancer even in early stages, it also hinders in easy inspection of oral cavity to allow early detection of oral cancers. It is a red alert sign for sure. I urge you to stop consuming tobacco in all forms.

Radiation Therapy for Tumor Patients - All You Need To Know!

MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Coimbatore
Radiation Therapy for Tumor Patients - All You Need To Know!

Radiation therapy is used for destroying the brain tumor cells, and relieves the symptoms of discomfort and pain caused by the tumor. Radiation is usually used after biopsy or resection of the tumor. This is done to destroy the microscopic cells of the tumor which have been left behind. Sometimes this is also an option for unresectable brain tumors or the metastatic tumors which spread to the brain from other parts of the body.

The radiation therapy is planned on several factors like the size and type of the tumor and the extent to which it has spread. Usually external beam radiation is used for the brain cancer and the area radiated involves the tumor and the surrounding area. In case of a metastatic brain cancer the radiation is given to the entire brain. People who have lung cancer receive radiation in the brain as a preventive therapy in order to stop the metastatic cancer from developing.

Side effects of brain cancer radiation
Depending on the site, dose, and other factors the radiation therapy when given to the brain might cause side effects. Hair loss, fatigue, edema, skin irritations are a few common side effects of brain tumor radiation. In some cases some people might develop swelling of the ankle, foot, calf and blood clots in the leg.

What is radiation therapy?
Radiation therapy is basically the use of targeted energy like X-ray and radioactive substances to kill the cancer cells, or shrink them or change the symptoms related to cancer. This therapy might be used as:

  1. Primary treatment for the destruction of the cancer cells
  2. In combination with other ongoing treatments to inhibit the growth of the cancer cells
  3. Prior to another treatment to shrink the cancer cells
  4. Post some treatment to stop the growth of any cancer cells that have been left behind
  5. To relieve cancer symptoms

Types of radiation
Some of the radiation methods commonly used are:

  1. External beam radiation therapy: In this the radiation is directed from outside the body on the cancerous cells in the body. Some examples of this are IMRT, TomoTherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, 3D conformal radiation therapy and IGRT.
  2. Internal radiation therapy: In this the radioactive substance is placed close to the tumor with the help of a catheter or some carrier. Examples of this are high-dose rate brachytherapy.
  3. Systemic radiation therapy: In this a radioactive substance is injected or swallowed, which further locates and destroys the cancerous cells. Example of this is radioactive iodine therapy.
  4. Managing radiation side effects: Radiation therapy in some cases can cause unpleasant side effects like fatigue and nausea. Thus it should be kept in mind that maximum radiation doses should be given with less or little impact on the healthy tissues. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.
