Hi, let me first reassure tyou that you don't have cancer. Your symptoms are in line with any young girl with menstrual disturbances. Most common cause of such disturbances is hormonal imbalance. Leutinizing hormone is a hormone which has various functions, and its value varies all through your menstrual cycle, peaking during ovulation. So gynecologists do the test to get an idea of the same. You need not worry about that. Just follow whatever medications/ hormonal treatments your gynecologist suggests. Once your cycles become regular, and hormonal imbalances settle down you will improve. Hope this helps. Take care. Regards

Neck nodes are a part of spread from primary site in head and neck cancer. Do a biopsy or simple FNAC to check if its cancer or not. If it comes positive for cancer then do a CT Scan of head and neck and meet an oncologist or ent specialist

Hello Dr. Can my wife take cervical cancer vaccine during breastfeeding. My son is 10 months old now and she will turn 30 by next year. We heard that vaccine to b taken before 30 years. Pls recommend?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, as such there is no harm in having cervical cancer vaccine, but why are you in so much hurry. You have to take such precaution unless there is severe indication or there are severe predisposing factors for cervical cancer formation. It is not a strict indication that cancer vaccine should be taken before 30 yrs. It can be taken at any age, but at the age of 30 cervix is more exposed to the insults, you can vaccinate your wife at your convenience.

Your father can get brachytherapy done -this is radiotherapy to the local area by inserting wires under local anaesthesia. This helps control the disease in such patients, who are not fit for surgery and chemotherapy. External beam radiotherapy also can be done along with Brachy. Please see to it that he keeps eating well during the treatment process.

Hi, I am 27 years old and I have lypoma. They started emerging when I was 20 and now they are just increasing with each passing day. I must be having over 100 lumps all over my body. What should I do? Wherever I consult, I just get the response that there is no cure. What are the reason for lypoma? Is it advisable to get the lypoma removed through surgery? Is there any way to contain them? Please help. Thank You!

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist,
Hi, it must be very distressing to have multiple lipomas but surgical removal is the only cure. The cause for such a condition is unknown. If there are any painful or large lipomas they can be excised surgically which is a minor procedure. Removing all lipomas especially minute one's is very difficult. There is still a chance of recurrence even after surgery though rare. There is no other medicine to contain them.

Why is Cancer the biggest Threat to the YOUNG in India?

Why is Cancer the biggest Threat to the YOUNG in India?

Why is Cancer the biggest Threat to the YOUNG in India?

There are fewer Indians who have successfully battled Cancer and have emerged successful. Yuvraj Singh, the legendary cricketer, who was diagnosed with a rare cancer at 29, survived due to an early detection. Cancer cases in India are not as many as they are in the developed world. However, due to late detection the survival rate in the country is far worse. Particularly, we are losing our youth to Cancer. Most tobacco (pan masala) related cancers and child cancers go undetected until very late.

Few cancers like cervical cancer and breast cancer which affect women of any age, are curable, however, due to lack of awareness and timely screening, many Indian women succumb to these cancers. The most common sites for cancer among men are lung, prostate, colon, rectum, stomach and liver while that among women are breast, colon, rectum, lung, cervix and stomach.

In proportion to our population, we lack the right infrastructure nationwide. esp in the northern and north eastern region, there is a dearth of good cancer facilities, where radiation, care or treatment can be given. Not even one third of cancer patients are alive beyond 5 years after their diagnosis in India, and about 71% of cancer deaths occur in patients in their prime productive years — between the ages of 30 to 69 years.

“Most Indians believe that cancer is generally incurable and that it should be kept secret from neighbors and family.” -  Dr Paul Goss, MD, Harvard University.

All these factors have contributed to a very high mortality rate. No wonder Cancer is dreaded in the country. Investment, infrastructure, lifestyles as well as mindsets need to change if we were to contain the Cancer mortality rate. While you need to watch out for early signs of cancer, here are the lifestyle changes every individual esp. all youth must adopt to avoid cancer.

  1. Avoid Tobacco - both smoking and chewing.

  2. Reduce alcohol intake - Save your organs from deteriorating.

  3. Limit UV ray exposure from the sun - Keeps your skin safe.

  4. Maintain a healthy diet - Include foods rich in Vitamins, minerals and fiber which nourish your body and build immunity.

  5. Increase your level of fitness - Maintain a good bodyweight. Additional flab invites a host of troubles, that includes variety of cancers.

  6. Seeking regular medical checkup or screening - This is the only way to prevent and get detected early on.

My age is 23 years. Height is 6 ft. Weight 76 kg. What are the blood test to detect pituitary cancer.

Diploma in Radio Therapy, MBBS
Oncologist, Chennai
Pituitary cancer is a systemic disease. That means the manifestation of the disease is more pronounced in the body than the actual cancer symptoms. There is no direct blood test to diagnose Pituitary cancer. A image guided biopsy is the one which can give a diagnosis. Pituitary gland being the main controller of hormones in the body, there is abnormal distribution of hormones. Hormonal studies for Growth hormone, Thyroid stimulating hormones and 24 hrs Urine Cortisol level can be assessed to know the status of hormone production from the Pituitary gland. You can consult me if you want to know more details.

9 Things You Must Watch To Make Your Home Cancer Free
Make Your Home Cancer Free

While cancer has become a common place disease, most of its causes remain unknown. Most of us are not aware that few regular everyday materials present in most households are potential causes of cancer. Lets know about them, the health hazards they can cause, and be aware.
Check this list.

1. Shower curtains - shower curtains are made of toxic chemicals which get into not only the shower or the bath but also into the environment. It emits harmful chemicals which are called voc (volatile organic chemicals) and can prove to be very harmful for us.

2. Deodorants - deodorants and antiperspirants are known to have various ingredients which have cancerous properties. These sprays stay on our bodies for hours, until we wash them off. While on our bodies, they chemicals harm our skin and even through it.

3. Strong shampoos - many shampoos contain toxic chemicals though there is no scientific proof that they cause cancer. However, the array of chemicals used to make shampoos is definitely harmful for us and best, if avoided.

4. Room fresheners - air-fresheners, like deodorants have vcos which are toxic and extremely harmful for us. They aggravate asthma and even affect reproductive development. They have hazardous components which can be cancerous. It is advisable to use essential oils.

5. Scented candles - scented candles mostly have wicks made of lead. While they serve a good purpose, there is no point in using something which gives momentary relief but can prove hazardous in the long run.

6. Certain paints - permanent markers, acrylic paints, solvents, etc contain hazardous chemicals which have been associated with occurrences of cancer, allergies and oral damages.

7. Gardening chemicals - household pesticides, herbicides or fungicides that we often use in gardens can contain carcinogenic materials which are believed to cause lymphomas and breast cancer (in animal models).

8. Plastic food/beverage containers - plastic materials containing bpa, or bisphenol a are believed to dangerous for health. So when one is using plastic bottle or food container make sure it is bpa free.

9. Nonstick cookware - cooking utensils which are made with a nonstick coating (teflon) is suspected to be a carcinogen. The main chemical in nonstick coatings is perfluorooctanoic acid (pfoa) is known to cause cancer. Glass, cast iron, copper, and ceramic or pfoa free nonstick cookwares are safe.
