If both parents of a male child develop cancer in their old age, what is the chance that their son may also develop cancer? Is it likely that the son will also develop cancer in his old age or can it happen any time of his life?

MD, Fellowship in Intergrative Medicine, MBBS
Integrated Medicine Specialist, Kochi
Cancer can attack any one at any age .If both parents are cancer patients the likely hood of getting cancers is more. That was the theory before .But now with Epigenetics you can reduce the incidence of getting cancer with proper dietary advice and life style changes. Common things to prevent cancer No smoking No tobacco in any forms No alcohol .Daily exercise Plant based foods only No dairy and animal products. Safe sexual practices, Proper sleep, Adequate minerals and nutrients through food. Proper screening for cancer. If you want specific nutritional advice and lifestyle changes to avoid cancer take a consultation.

Dear sir, turmeric with active ingredient cur cumin and carrot with beta carotenes have anti cancerous properties for preventive purposes. It can not be used for treatment of diagnosed cancers. So use it along with your treatment as advised by treating doctor.

How Ayurveda Helps Treat Skin Cancer?

Skin is a very vital organ of your body as it protects your body from external injuries and also helps in regulating your body temperature. The gradual development of cancer cells on your skin region is known as skin cancer. Skin cancer is a very common disease that is affecting people worldwide. Many causes are responsible for skin cancer.

Some of them are stated as follows:

  • Overexposure to sun rays. The Ultraviolet rays can cause serious damage to your skin that can lead to cancer.
  • Sun burns may also result in the development of cancer cells
  • Frequent exposure to toxic chemical substance can also trigger skin cancer.
  • A frail immune system may also contribute to skin cancer.
  • Certain scars on your skin, if left untreated, may become cancerous and eventually lead to skin cancer.
  • Consuming unhealthy foods and being unhygienic may also lead to skin cancers.

Skin cancer may develop all over your body or on any particular region of your skin. It can spread to other parts of your body rapidly. The symptoms of skin cancer depend on the type of your cancer.

Some of the common symptoms of skin cancer are as follows:

  • A sore on your skin that cannot be healed
  • Swelling of your skin
  • You may also get an itching sensation frequently
  • Appearance of bumps
  • Bleeding of the affected areas
  • Appearance of reddish spots
  • A bleeding mole

Skin cancer is absolutely curable if treated at an early stage. Ayurveda offers effective remedies for treating skin cancer.

They are mentioned below:

  1. Panchakarma therapy is the most effective treatment for healing skin cancer. It involves purification and removal of harmful toxins from your body through its 5 constituent therapeutic treatments namely, Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamokshana.
  2. Drinking green tea can be very helpful. It is known to have anti cancerous properties which help prevent and combat this killer.
  3. Including more of citrus food in your diet such as lemons, oranges; excluding oily, fried foods and cutting down on higher quantities of sugar can prove to be beneficial.
  4. Applying turmeric paste on the affected areas may help you to guard against skin cancer.

You must not ignore skin cancer and seek advice from a doctor as early as possible since the process of metastasis (spreading of cancer cells to different spots of your body) is very rapid in this case.

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.
