Is it true that one should not wash her head for 1st 3 days of period because it instigates cancer? Has it got any scientific base ?

No, it is not true at all. In old days, people use to practice this, so that woman should get rest for at least those days of menses.

You need to see a breast surgeon or a surgical oncologist. While breast cysts are usually non cancerous, it is always better to take an expert opinion.

My wife just found out that she has hpv. Does this mean I will get genital warts?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, It is not necessary that you may get genital warts as it depends on the hpv strain warts are usually associated with 6and 11. However since this is sexually transmitted disease you must be careful and use proper precautions like barrier methods or condoms while having sexual contact. Genital warts most often are self limiting and if they don't can be treated by local application or by ablation. If you suspect some lesions near your genital area, must see doctors dermatologist or venerologist.

What kind of food habits should I follow after the treatment of Rhabdomyosarcoma, a kind of cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
There is no specific dietary requirements specific for rhabdomyosarcoma patient, but since Such patients receive multiple cycles of chemotherapy they are likely to be immunocompromised so they need food that boost immunity. Whole grains, adequately cleaned fruits with thick skin, Nuts, vegetables adequately cooked, soups, juices. All these provide multivitamins, antioxidants and protein to build up the body and boost immunity.

Prostate Cancer - Causes And Symptoms

Prostate Cancer - Causes And Symptoms

Prostate cancer is a cancerous tumor in a man’s prostate gland, a small gland that is responsible for producing the seminal fluid which transports and nourishes the sperm. It is a very common type of cancer among men. A few cases of prostate cancer tend to develop slowly while others may progress very fast.

Symptoms

In the initial stages, prostate cancer may not show any symptom. However, in the latter stages, there may be symptoms such as:

  1. Pain in the bones.

  2. Erectile dysfunction.

  3. Urination can get troublesome.

  4. Presence of blood in the semen.

  5. Pain and discomfort in the pelvic region.

Causes-

The exact causes of prostate cancer are not known. It starts to develop when certain cells in the prostate gland start to mutate. These mutations cause these cells to multiply at a very fast rate and thus, soon form tumors. Although the causes are not known, certain factors tend to aggravate this condition; them being:

  1. Color: According to certain medical reports, a darker skin may mean increased chances of suffering from prostate cancer.

  2. Age: The risk of developing prostate cancer tends to increase with age.

  3. Genetics and Family History: Faulty genes could be another cause of this condition. Also, having some member in the family who is diagnosed with this type of cancer only increases the risks of you suffering from them.

  4. Obesity: If you are obese, then you are more likely to develop prostate cancer.

Treatments-

The treatments for prostate cancer include:

  1. Radiation Therapy: In this procedure, high energy rays are used to target and destroy cancer cells. Usually X-rays or protons are used to treat the cancer cells.

  2. Hormone Therapy: Hormone therapy is a type of treatment wherein certain medications are administered to prevent your body from producing testosterone.

  3. Surgery: If the other treatment methods do not produce desired results, then a surgery is carried out for the removal of the prostate gland. In addition to the prostate gland, some adjoining lymph nodes and tissues are also removed.

  4. Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is method of destroying cancer cells by injecting chemicals into the body. The medicines are injected into the veins in the arms.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Cancer and Future Fertility - How To Preserve?

IVF Specialist, Mumbai
Cancer and Future Fertility - How To Preserve?

Cancer is increasing in prevalence with improved detection and diagnostic techniques so prolonging the life and improving the quality of life.It has been observed to be affecting more of younger age groups so can have a lethal effect of the future fertility by destruction of their gametes (sperm or eggs). As doctor we feel need of spreading awareness at multidisciplinary level regarding preservation of future fertility which needs counseling and guidance at preliminary stages only before the damage happens.

Various Methods-

  • Oocyte/Egg cryopreservation
  • Sperm Cryopreservation
  • Embryo freezing

Method will vary as per the clinical status

Oocyte  cryopreservation.

Egg freezing means removing mature eggs and freezing them for later. This process may also be called egg banking . Its done in cancer patients preferably before exposure to chemo and radiotherapy.Its same like an IVF cycle except that embryos are not formed.Here  medications are given  to stimulate the development of multiple follicles in the ovaries.

Type of cancer can also decide the protocols.

Besides there are now more patient friendly mild stimulation protocol especially in estrogen sensitive cancers

The eggs are retrieved from the patient using a transvaginal technique under anesthesia and are kept frozen for future use by a method called vitrification.  

Frozen eggs can be kept frozen for years(5 years as per ICMR but not specified for cancer cases) till the woman decides to use them for conception  and once the patient is ready to get pregnant, the eggs are thawed and then fertilized using ICSI, an assisted reproductive technology that injects one sperm directly into the egg. The embryos (fertilized eggs) will then be transferred into the woman’s uterus (womb) in order to achieve a pregnancy.

Embryo Freezing 

 It has the highest success rate compared to any other treatment.  Its like normal IVF when eggs are retrieved and mixed with sperms. Once fertilized, the embryos (fertilized eggs) grow in the laboratory for 3-5 days until they are suitable for freezing.  

Sperm Freezing
Sperm Freezing is an effective and simplest way for men who have gone through puberty to store sperm for future use. Many men can store sperm (either from natural ejaculate or from a TESA sample

Hi Lybrate user, hanuman fruit or soursop fruit is good for 1.giving immunity 2.Improves eye health 3.Prevents germ infection 4.Improves gastrointestinal health Soursop is said to be able to target and destroy a number of different types of tumor cells pertaining to different types of cancer. While it cannot be considered a medicine, regular intake of the fruit as a part of a balanced and healthy diet can actually reduce the risk of development of cancer due to the large amount of antioxidants present, which removes harmful free radicals from the body. Soursop leaves also possess same propertiies So this can be given for cancer patient. Not as a medicine but as a supplement.
