The size is enlarged, but along with size of prostate two other things are also required psa and post voidal urine. Most of the times the size increase is harmless until it puts pressure on some structure and create problem. You can consult a homoeopathic physician for the rationale treatment.

Milk is not harmful for the oral cancer patient. He should avoid too much spice in food. Also if he has undergone surgery and /or radiation, he should avoid extremes like very hot or very cold or very spicy things as there is loss of sensation in that area

Can I continue to use complementary therapies, take herbal remedies or vitamin supplements when I'm on chemotherapy?

MBBS, DNB, Diploma Dyslipidemia, CCEBDM, CCMTD
General Physician, Gurgaon
Lybrate-user regarding complementary and herbal therapies with chemotherapy it is still a grey zone. You should understand that allopathic medicines comes with years of research and trials, only after that they are allowed to be used in patients. Whereas these complementary therapies are just by the word of mouth. There is no proven evidence behind their efficacy. Yes vitamin supplements when taken with proper advice can be benificial. I hope I clear my point with this. Decision is entirely yours. Will still suggest to continue with chemotherapy religiously as advised with full faith and you will do well.

In lungs cancer 4 stage chemotherapy or radiation therapy is possible.Please tell.

MBBS, DNB ( Radiation Oncology)
Oncologist, Mumbai
It depends on the general condition of the patient. Also stage 4 means usually palliation, so the intention is not cure, but a reasonable quality of life and if possible disease control. May be palliative chemotherapy if patient can tolerate and palliative radiation if the patient has painful bone metastasis or brain metastasis.

I have infected galactocele 25 cc in my right Breast, will it be cured by medicine? My baby is now one month.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
As with many cysts, the typical treatment for a galactocele is to leave them alone. When the hormonal change associated with pregancy and lactation cease, the condition should resolve on its own. But, in cases of true discomfort, attempts may be made to 'drain' the galactocele through fine needle aspiration.

Hi doctor. I would like to know about breast cancer, what is it? it's causes? symptoms etc..

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
Breast cancer as the name suggests is cancer that starts in breast. It generally starts with a small lump in the breast. If not treated on time can progress to involve the whole breast and may even spread to other parts of body. No specific cause but increase exposure to hormones, not breastfeeding children, having late children, postmenopausal hormone therapy, obesity etc are some of the known risk factors.

High fat diet, prostate cancer prone
############################
Diets high in saturated fat increase the risk of prostate cancer. As per a report from University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston published in the International Journal of Cancer:
Men who consume high saturated animal fat diet are two times more likely to experience disease progression after prostate cancer surgery than men with lower saturated fat intake.
There is also shorter "disease–free" survival time among obese men who eat high saturated fat diet compared with non–obese men consuming diets low in saturated fat.
Men with a high saturated fat intake had the shortest survival time free of prostate cancer (19 months)
Non–obese men with low fat intake survived the longest time free of the disease (46 months).
Non–obese men with high intake and obese men with low intake had "disease–free" survival of 29 and 42 months, respectively.
Take home messages
High saturated fat diet has been linked to cancer of the prostate
Reducing saturated fat in the diet after prostate cancer surgery can help reduce cancer progression.
Cancer prostate has the same risk factors as that of heart blockages and both are linked to high saturated fat intake.
With an increase in number of heart patients, a corresponding increase in prostate cancer patients is also seen in the society.

Dear the symptoms you are getting are due to dryness of the mouth, this is because of lack of mucus in the mouth which is protective layer of our mouth, and is being produced in the mouth by glands which will be helped by good and healthy blood supply to the glands, blood with good blood cells will take oxygen to the gland and gland works, they require oxygen in ample of amount, so if you do not take iron diet on daily basis than this will lead to less of mucus production and hence lead to dryness and thick mucus problem, this thick mucus leads to irritation in mouth hence leads to itching in the mouth, start taking good iron diet on daily basis, and shakes, avoid salty and spicy food.

Diagnosed with stomach cancer , need to know whether it is treatable or not , how can we know & what are the examinations we should perform.

Alternative Medicine Specialist, Bhubaneswar
Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. Stomach cancer is very much treatable. However, the possibility of a cure is influenced by a couple of factors including the cancer's stage and its associated comorbidities, age, vitality, gene expressions, chromosomes affected, histopathological grading and the type of cancer etc all. I would advise you to connect with an oncologist specializing in gastric cancers for the way forward. A integrative treatment with alternative medicines can certainly improve clinical outcomes. You can connect as appropriate, anytime. Take care and all the very best.

Well one thing needs to be ruled out after one year gap is metastasis. So needs to undergo cect and bone scan if he is operable and pac fit then he can undergo the procedure otherwise hormonal/chemotherapy and performance status of patient is important it is slow growing tumour, if performance status is not good then hormonal therapy is advisable.
