Just do routine investigation and never think of cancer first and leave it to your dr to diagnose it and let you know.

I was diagnosed throat cancer I went through chemotherapy and radiation and now the treatment is over but now my food pipe got squeezed and I am in a state where I cannot take liquid food also what should I do?

Please get an endoscopy done, both laryngoscopy and gi endoscopy. If narrowing is present, dilatation can be done by gastroenterologist. Sometimes esophagitis can also cause swallowing difficulty or fungal infection post treatment can also cause dysphagia. You need to know the cause to treat it correctly. You can inhale steam to relieve swelling. Usually four to six weeks post treatment side effects fade off and situation is better.

Hello, The protocol has been correct and these are progesterone side effects which are common. Just increase your water intake to 4-5 litres a day to minimise these effects and also get a urine preganncy test done after 15 days off iui to confirm or rule out pregnancy.

My father is suffering from gall bladder cancer on 4th stage what diet I should give to him and now he is felling very weak so what should I do.

Oncologist, Chennai
Dear lybrate-user, Kindly let me know if your father is under any treatment. If he is under any chemo therapy treatment he will be experiencing weakness and also vomiting with reduced appetite. Kindly provide him natural health supplements like fresh fruit juices and frequent meals to give him strength for his usual activities. Vitamin supplements and protein supplements are also advisable.

Sir, my fiancee is having breast cancer and she was getting treated with chemotherapy. Now she will treated with radiation. She has been diagnosed with ER/PR positive. So doctor has stopped her periods & told that it will be stopped for 5 years. So I want to know that can she try for pregnancy after marriage in between those 5 years? & What are the effects, merits or demerits.

FMAS, MS
General Surgeon, Gandhinagar
Hello dear lybrate-user, hi Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* Status of the ovaries on ultrasound and MRI in some cases, with certain lab evaluations for the hormones are mandatory to answer this question.* But it is not advisable for her to try for pregnancy for minimum 3 years period post radio therapy & if there is no menses for 5 years there is no issue of thinking in that direction. Hope this will help you for sure. Wishing her fine recovery and a very good health ahead. Regards dear take care. May god bless her with all new rays of hopes this Diwali.

Does drinking coffee causes cancer? I drink a lot of coffee and tea. I just want to know whether this causes any health problems or cancer.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
There is very less chance of 1% that coffee or tea if taken daily for a pretty long time can lead to cancer of an organ like stomach / oeshophagus.

My mother has gone through chemotherephy and now my family members are not allowing our dog to get on patient bed and even not allowing any other person to use patients toilet is all these necessary to take such protection of kimo patients.

MBBS

Chemotherapy reduces the bone marrow function and which reduces the immunity of the patients and which increases the chances for secondary infection and so to prevent any further damage to the patient extra care needs to be taken

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.
