Dear sir, what kind of cancer you are suffering from and what is the site and stage. Radiation therapy is one of the modality to treat cancer so please continue your treatment as advised by oncologist. You can attach histopathology reports and imaging reports to guide you more about your disease and treatment.

Hi lybrate-user, frequent urination, muscle weakness & cramps, whole body bone pain, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, weight gain, headache etc all are commonly seen. Above-mentioned apart, gynecomastia/ tenderness of breasts could also be seen in male members if there is excess of estrogen hormone produced in the body. This may also result in reduced sex drive/ impotency. On the other hand, an excess of androgen production could lead to excessive hair (body) growth, and also enlargement of the sex organs. Hope this clarifies. Sincerely,

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir cancer cure depends on biology of disease and stage of presentation. Early disease is better responsive than late diagnosis. Cancer presents as lump, ulceration, abnormal bleeding, weight loss, altered bowel habits, difficulty in swallowing, change in bowelor bladder habits, change in voice etc depending on organ affected. One should stay away from any kind of carcinogenic substance like tobacco alcohol pollution pesticides radiation exposure industrial affluent etc and go for regular health screening for early diagnosis.

6 Ways to Prevent Cervical Cancer

MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

6 Ways to Prevent Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer (a malignant tumor of the cervix, the lowermost part of the uterus) is one of the most preventable types of cancer. Because of the Pap smear test, the number of cervical cancer cases has actually dropped over the past 20 years. However, many women still develop cervical cancer.

While some cases of cervical cancer cannot be prevented, there are many things a woman can do to reduce her risk of developing cervical cancer.

Reduce Your Risk of Cervical Cancer:

  1. Get a regular Pap smear. A Pap smear can be the greatest defense against cervical cancer. It can detect cervical changes early on, before they have a chance to turn into cancer.
  2. Limit the number of sexual partners you have. Studies have shown that women who have many sexual partners increase their risk for cervical cancer. You also increase your risk of developing HPV, which has been shown to lead to cervical cancer.
  3. Quit smoking or avoid secondhand smoke. Smoking cigarettes increases your risk of developing many cancers, including cervical cancer.
  4. If you are sexually active, use a condom. Having unprotected sex puts you at risk for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), which can increase your risk factor for developing cervical cancer.
  5. Follow up on abnormal Pap smears. If you have had an abnormal Pap smear, it is important to follow up with regular Pap smears or colposcopies, and whatever else your doctor has recommended for you. If you have been treated for cervical dysplasia, you still need to follow up with Pap smears or colposcopies.
  6. Get the HPV vaccine. If you are under 27, you may be eligible to receive the HPV vaccine, which prevents high risk strains of HPV in women. The vaccine is most effective when given to young women before they become sexually active.

Again, cervical cancer prevention should be a top priority for all women. Small lifestyle adjustments, combined with regular medical care, can go a long way in preventing cervical cancer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a oncologist and ask a free question.

Triple negative breast cancer is comparatively more aggressive disease. Please do regular follow up if your treatment is completed. Please consult your oncologist for any need for radiation therapy.

Get her examined if there is a lump felt. Ultrasound test on breast is as good as mammography of breast minus any radiation risks. It can be Premenstrual tension also , which is felt by many women due to water retention ,caused by hormones , few days before periods and treatment is cutting down salt ,taking more potassium rich fruits and vegetables like oranges, lemons,amlas. Do Not Ignore Lump.

Cervical Cancer Prevention & Early Detection

PG Diploma in Geriatric Medicine, MD - Community Medicine (pgt), Certificate in Infectious diseases, MBBS

Cervical Cancer Prevention & Early Detection

Cervical cancer is a preventable disease and, if detected early, a cancer that can be successfully treated. Below are ways to prevent cervical cancer and detect the disease early.

Cervical Cancer Prevention

Avoid infection with HPV by practicing safer sex.
(Condoms can’t give complete protection against HPV because the virus can infect areas that aren’t covered by a condom.)
Don’t smoke, or, if you do smoke, quit.

Cervical Cancer Early Detection

All women should begin cervical cancer testing at age 21. Women aged 21 to 29 should receive a Pap test every 3 years. HPV testing should not be used for screening in this age group unless used as a follow-up for an abnormal Pap test.
Women between the ages of 30 and 65 should have a Pap test plus an HPV test every 5 years. This is the preferred approach, but it is also OK to have a Pap test alone every 3 years.
Women at high risk, exposed to DES before birth or with a weakened immune system may need to be screened more often.

Talk with your health care professional about the HPV vaccine.

The HPV vaccine protects against the types of HPV that are most likely to cause cancer. It’s most effective if a person is vaccinated before becoming sexually active. The vaccine is recommended for girls who are age 11 to 12. Girls may also be vaccinated at age 9 or 10. Girls may get a “catch-up” vaccine up to age 18. Young women age 19 to 26 who have never been vaccinated may also get the vaccine.
Women over age 65 who have had regular cervical cancer testing with normal results should not be tested for cervical cancer. Women with a history of serious cervical pre-cancer should continue to be tested for at least 20 years after that diagnosis, even if testing continues past age 65.
Women who have had a hysterectomy should stop screening unless the surgery was done as a treatment for cervical cancer or pre-cancer. Women who have had a hysterectomy that left behind the cervix should continue to follow the guidelines above.

- do consult for further info on HPV vaccine

I am 65 years old. On medical check up, doctors diagnosed prostate enlargement (55 /58) and prescribed some medicines such as Deutas and prolif which still I continue. Should I continue the medicines or go for surgery?

MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Hubli-Dharwad
if your symptoms are controlled with medicines then you can continue and delay surgery but if not controlled then opt for surgery and do check if its a benign enlargement or cancerous. if cancerous then either surgery or radiotherapy has to be done urgently.
