There are few points to note here the whole sample is to be reviewed to see if there is any high grade component mitosis 2-3 per hpf suggests low grade but extensive necrosis suggests high grade if the pathologist is sure it's low grade then no chemo is required if pathologist says there is a high grade component then you require adjuvant chemotherapy with three cycles of Taxanes and platinum also make sure your pre op staging and surgery was complete CA 125 also to be noted.

I am 20 year girl. I have some glands in my breast without pain. mammography done. It is fibroid only. Is it harmful in future.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, fibroadenoma of breast is a hormone related disease and since you are young, you can get ultrasound of both breast and be on followup. usually it does not disappear on its own and has to be surgically removed but for time being you can simply follow it up with regular interval ultrasound to know its size and if there is any increase.

Ayurvedic Remedies for Nasopharynx Cancer

Nasopharynx cancer is a very unusual type of cancer. In this medical condition, cancer cells affect the nasopharynx region, which is the uppermost part of your pharynx. The cells start growing from the upper region of the throat and can spread up to your head. Nasopharynx is a very important passage of your body placed right behind your nose, which connects your nose to your mouth and allows you to breathe. Thus, if this crucial region gets affected by the growth of cancer cells, severe difficulties and health problems may crop up.

The primary cause of nasopharynx cancer is infection. There are other causes, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, working with specific chemicals or wood dust.

The most common symptoms of nasopharynx cancer are mentioned below:

  • Difficulties in vision and speech
  • Ear infections
  • Nose bleeding
  • Loss of hearing
  • Frequent headaches

Nasopharynx cancer cause serious problems to the ear-nose-throat region. Ayurveda offers effective remedies for treating nasopharynx cancer. A few of the remedies are mentioned below:

  1. Exclude salt in your diet and also avoid sea fishes or fishes containing salt.
  2. Practice good hygiene, since, nasopharynx cancer is primarily caused due to virus infections, practicing healthy habits like washing hands before and after food can prove to be helpful.
  3. Avoid smoking and drinking as it smoking and alcohol consumption will only worsen your condition.
  4. Certain breathing exercises may help you to cope up with the problem better.
  5. Panchakarma therapy which helps to clean your body from harmful toxins which may prove to be helpful.
  6. Also many Ayurvedic herbs and essential oils can effectively treat nasopharynx cancer.

No usually painful breasts is not suggestive of cancer. Usually it is related to hormonal changes and occurs before periods. However, if it persists then you need to see a gynaecologist for evaluation and treatment.

She should be taken for palliative care only, as patients who are bed ridden do not do well with any chemotherapy. You can take help of portea (search online) which can help you in taking care of her.

Please suggest. Can cancer develop in heart? If yes then how as the cells in hear can't divide so how is it possible?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, FICS (Surgical Oncology), Fellowship of Association of Indian Surgeons(FAIS), Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery(FMAS) & Reproductive Medicine, Fellowship of Indian Association of Gastrointestinal Endo Surgeons (FIAGES)
Oncologist, Ghaziabad
Cancer usually does not develop in the heart. Some very rare tumors can occur in the heart or cancers from other organs can reach up to the heart. Why cancers are rare in heart is a question for academic and research discussion.
