Some cancers have strong genetic background such as breast cancer and cancer of uterus. What cancers your relatives had? genetic testing may be indicated to identify the genetic mutation after I get the detailed information of the cancer in family. This will help in very early diagnosis of possible cancer.

Dear sir, blood cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of one of the components of blood causing suppression of others. It could be diagnosed by peripheral blood examination, cbc,bone marrow examination, flowcytometry etc apart from clinical examination. Prognosis is variable, most of acute leukaemias have long term survival. Since the cause is not understood well, one has to avoid any kind of chemical, carcinogenic or radiation exposure.

Homeopathy in Prostate Problem

The prostate gland is a very important gland in the male reproductive system. It is responsible for producing around 30% of the fluid which comprises semen. While the statement that homeopathy cannot treat problems in the prostate such as prostate cancer is true, it is untrue that prostate gland enlargement cannot be treated by homeopathy. Here are the most common homeopathic remedies for prostate gland enlargement and what are the medicines best suited for it:
1. Baryta carb
Baryta carb is one of the best homeopathic remedies for prostate gland enlargement in the elderly. Common conditions which may indicate that baryta carb is the best remedy for your prostate gland enlargement patient include degenerative diseases such as losing memory, cardiovascular problems and other problems besides losing memory in the cerebral system.
2. Digitalis
Digitalis is mostly used when the patient suffering from prostate gland enlargement also suffers from heart problems. Digitalis does make the pulse weak, slow or even intermittent, however it is worth note that oedema may also occur.
3. Staphysagria
Staphysagria is one of the best homeopathic medicines for various pains which occur in the urinary system in addition to prostate gland enlargement. Common pains which staphysagria cures include pain while urinating, burning sensation in the urethra, feeling like the bladder is not completely emptied as well as pain in the urethra when one is not urinating.
4. Conium
Frequent urination is yet another symptom of prostate gland enlargement. This problem is caused by an injury to the area where the prostate glands are located. This injury hardens the glands. The passage of urine will be extremely difficult with urine starting to pass and then stopping again. There is also dribbling of urine after completion of urinating.
5. Sabal serrulata
Sabal serrulata is one of the most popular homeopathic medicines for prostate gland enlargement with many patients having consumed it reported great results. It works for most causes of prostate gland enlargement as well.
Even though homeopathy is supposed to have no side effect, it is still imperative that you consult your doctor about which ones to take.

HPV Vaccine update

Hpv vaccine update

Three different vaccines, which vary in the number of HPV types they contain, are available

A bivalent vaccine, targets hpv types 16 and 18
A quadrivalent hpv vaccine, targets hpv types 6, 11, 16, and 18
A 9-valent vaccine, targets the same hpv types as the quadrivalent vaccine (6, 11, 16, and 18) as well as types 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58
If cost and availability are not issues, use 9-valent vaccine for individuals for whom hpv vaccination is indicated
Infection with human papillomavirus (hpv) types 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58 is implicated in approximately 90 percent of invasive cervical cancers.
Two types associated with genital warts are (6 and 11)
Routine immunization should be offered to boys and girls aged 11 to 12, but can be administered as early as nine years of age. Catch-up vaccination should be offered to males between the ages of 13 to 21 and females between 13 to 26 years who have not been previously vaccinated. Repeat vaccination with the 9-valent vaccine is likely not warranted for individuals who have completed a series with a different HPV vaccine.
Persistent viral infection with carcinogenic HPV types causes virtually all cancer of the cervix and most cases of anal cancer. The carcinogenic types, HPV 16 and HPV 18, which are targeted by the current HPV vaccines, cause approximately 70 percent of all cervical cancers worldwide and 72 percent of anal cancers. Hpv types 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58 are estimated to cause an additional 19 percent of invasive cervical cancers. Hpv 6 and HPV 11 cause approximately 90 percent of genital warts.
Hpv immunization is most effective among individuals who have not yet been infected with HPV (eg, before sexual debut).
The quadrivalent vaccine and 9-valent are administered in three doses at time zero and at two and six months of follow-up. The bivalent vaccine is administered in three doses at time zero, and at one and six months of follow-up.
Cervical cancer screening is recommended for any woman 21 years of age or older.
Clinicians should be aware that HPV immunization is not effective in clearing cytologically evident disease or HPV infection that is already present.

I have a swollen lymph node on the right side of my neck from two months it comes with a very bad cold but till now its not gone and I am still having infection in my throat I also done a needle biopsy and everything came back normal but neither the infection nor the enlarged lymph node is gone.

You must take a good course of antibiotics and anti allergic. You can check your sputum for sensitivity of antibiotics. Lymph node enlargement may be infection related though it is surprising why you have it for so long. Beyond this I need to examine and check your immune status to know the cause of infection.
