You need to start exercising your jaw. There is an instrument called mouth opening prop which you could use. I've seen many patients getting good results with it.

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Laryngeal Cancer?

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Laryngeal Cancer?

The formation of malignant cells in the larynx tissues leads to laryngeal cancer. Most tissue malignancy occur in the squamous cells (flat, thin cells inside the larynx lining). Men are more susceptible to laryngeal cancer than women.

Laryngeal cancer falls under the category of neck and head cancer. The risk factors of laryngeal cancer include:

  1. Using tobacco based products
  2. Drinking excessive alcohol
  3. Exposure to asbestos and sulphuric acid

The symptoms of laryngeal cancer are: 

  1. Coughing or sore throat that does not heal (know more about Whooping Cough)
  2. Difficulty in swallowing
  3. Pain in the ears
  4. Throat or neck lumps
  5. Hoarseness in the voice

The conventional treatments for laryngeal cancer are radiation, chemotherapy and surgery.

Ayurvedic treatment can be used together with conventional therapies. Ayurvedic remedies have minimal side-effects and as such are safe. Usually, conventional therapies weaken the body. Fatigue is a common side-effect of harsh treatments like radiation and chemotherapy. As such, Ayurveda aims to bring the body back to balance by fighting the effects of harsh treatments that cause imbalances in the body. It hopes to achieve harmony through natural methods. It can increase energy, promote wellbeing, balance the body, mind and spirit, reduce stress and prevent the disease from returning.

Eating certain healthy food, herbs and professionally prescribed Ayurvedic remedies can help with cancer treatment. Besides healing your body from the inside, there are other important beneficial remedies that can prove to be useful. They include:

  1. Meditation can reduce blood pressure, anxiety and improve all around well-being.
  2. Yoga and pranayama is supremely helpful
  3. Oil massages with healing herbs and essential oils are good for the body and mind

Cancer treatment requires time and patience. You cannot hasten the process. If you are recovered or you are in the recovery phase, it is important not to fall back to the bad habits that put your body out of balance. So if you are on treatment, or done with the treatment, do not start smoking or drinking again. smoking and drinking harms the good effects and can lead to recurrence of the disease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

My mother has undergone angioplasty opn one stent has been placed on 04.02.2017, she is also suffering from breast cancer with 3rd stage. Pl tell what is your opinion on chemotherapy for cancer treatment i. E. When it can be started.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear, any chemotherapy if suggested for treatment of breast cancer of your mother, it is not going to harm your mother as regards stent is concerned. Whether she needs chemotherapy is to be determined.in some patients the status of breast cancer is such that hey do not need chemotherapy but only hormones or growth restraining single drug chemotherapy. For this we need to have all the details of your mothers history.

My father is suffering with neck cancer, he has gone through radiation 7 chemo last year, but 3 months after completing the radiation he had breathing problem and thus has gone through trachestomy, but since trachestomy has been done he is suffering with lots of pain in the neck and we also have to do suction every hour or so, can you advise some medicines or device which can reduce his pain & problems.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
What is the status of disease post chemo-radiation, have you got a direct laryngoscopy done to know the cause of breathing difficulty and what is thestatus of lungs. If both are disease free then tracheostomy can be closed once radiation edema settles down with steroids, nebulization and steam inhalation. If residual disease then he would require further treatment. Pain should be managed with good analgesics.

no. if your father's future wife and her previous husband were not blood relatives , her chance of having blood cancer is not increased than general population. even if they were blood related , even than the chance would be less than one in million depending on the type of blood. cancer her husband had

Hello, my aunt is actually around 32 years old, and she was diagnosed with dermoid cyst in neck, which rather looks like branchial cleft cyst. So, may I know which doctor would be the best for her, regarding this issue.

BHMS
Homeopath, Secunderabad
Please take the opinion of a surgeon wether it can removed. If it is not painful and not causing any complications then there is no emergency to remove it. Please revert after the visit to the surgeon. You can also opt Homeopathy which can be given after a detailed consultation. You can contact me for further details.

Hi, please check on the blood counts. Immunosuppression is the most common reason for fever during chemotherapy. She needs to evaluated to rule out neutropenic fever. If found with neutropenia she needs hospital care with necessary treatment. Take care.

What presentation should be taken after breast cancer treatment. 2 year has been completed.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
If the female is healthy without any symptoms. Then nothing to be done. But if some nodular thing is felt in breast, then again she needs to go for mammography and checked. And if it comes positive then take homoeopathic carcinocinum 200 1 dose for that to avoid re-appearance.

I'm 19 years old girl. I noticed blue and purple lines looking like veins on my right breast 3 months ago. Now my right breast is growing faster than left and sometime it's paining. I'm very depressed is there anything serious?

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Very few women have completely symmetrical breasts. It is common for one breast to be slightly larger than the other. If one breast suddenly gets bigger than the other, it could signal a problem such as an infection, cyst, fibroid or even cancer. Please do a mammography and go for a physical examination to your Gynecologist.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Say no to FNAC in prostate cancer

Over 95 percent of malignancies arising in the prostate are adenocarcinoma. The remaining types include urothelial carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, small cell carcinoma, lymphoma and sarcomas.

Core needle biopsy of the prostate is used to determine whether or not cancer is present in men with an elevated serum PSA level and/or an abnormal digital rectal examination.

The recommendation is to take multiple core biopsies under transrectal ultrasound guidance.

Primary diagnosis of prostate cancer by using fine needle aspiration is not acceptable.

When positive, the combined Gleason score, based upon architectural features of the prostate cancer cells, should be reported because it correlates closely with clinical behavior and has been incorporated into the tumor node metastasis (TNM) prognostic group staging system.

One should also report number of positive cores, the percentage (or length) of cancer in the positive core, the presence of perineural invasion or extraprostatic extension, and the presence of histologic types other than conventional adenocarcinoma.

The accuracy of pathological diagnosis of prostate cancer can be improved by using immunohistochemistry markers.
