I got copper inserted on Aug 2015. While doing that doctor said for a pap smear test as she observed some lesion in the cervix. The report was normal But after getting copper t, every month before the period starts in full flow I get slight bleeding for 4-5 days. Also some times in between the periods also I get bleeding. Is it cancer or something else.

You need to be examined per vaginally to be really sure if there is any suspicious lesion in cervix. Menstrual disorder could also be because of copper T, you need a clinical examination. Discuss with your gynecologist about intermenstrual bleeding and get yourself checked and let us know about her clinical findings.

DNB, MBBS

Dear sir, cancer is usually caused by some abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of cells which may be triggered by some genetic mutations or changes. The cause of this genetic change may be some carcinogens like tobacco, alcohol, pesticides, artificial colours and adulterated food, pollution, radiation exposure etc. It may present as lump, ulceration, abnormal bleeding, weight loss, difficulty in swallowing, changed bowel habits, hoarseness or change of voice etc. Tobacco either smoking or smokeless Is responsible for nearly 40%of cancers.

Blood Cancer - Ayurvedic Remedies For It!

Blood Cancer - Ayurvedic Remedies For It!

In our modern life, cancer is the most dreaded disease of all. Despite substantial advances in medical science, there hasn't been much of a progress in the treatment available for cancer. The mortality rate for cancer is still on the rise and all this, in spite of all kinds of sophisticated treatments at our disposal. 

Cancer is rather a torturous experience, not merely on account of the terminal consequence, but also of the extreme physical and emotional suffering that one has to endure. What's worse is that often all the efforts are rendered vain. In that context, a large number of people have started looking towards alternative therapies as a cure for cancer. Serious forms of cancers like blood cancer or leukemia are often formidable and do not respond favourably to the clinical treatments. Consequently, despite all attempts and humongous investments, the casualties are on the rise. To counter such threats, people are growingly moving towards alternative remedies. Among the other natural cures, Ayurveda has garnered a lot of interest and approval.

Ayurveda has devised a holistic process that potentially cures you of blood cancer and endows you with a fresh leash of life. As per Ayurveda, the main causes of cancer may be enumerated as genetic imbalances, exposure to harmful radiation, stressful and unhealthy lifestyle and consumption of degenerating food items. As such, Ayurveda tries to heal not just the disease but also the germ of the disease and in the process, improves your well-being.

Ayurveda grapples with blood cancer in the following ways: 

  1. Adjuvant to ongoing treatment: You may be skeptical of depending entirely on Ayurveda as a remedy for cancer. As such, Ayurvedic treatments may be used as ancillaries alongside the ongoing chemotherapy and radiology. Ayurveda stimulates your in built immunity and thus prolongs and rejuvenates your lifespan. That aside, the natural benefits that Ayurveda provides your body reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and help in complete remission of the disease.
  2. Rasashastra: Ayurveda deems the imbalance in your genetic code to be the main cause of cancer. Therefore, it believes that remedy lies in 'pitta' restoration. Under this treatment, Ayurveda uses a combination of metals vis-a-vis the purest elements to minimize the deterioration of the condition. A unique combination of silver, gold and other essential minerals can be wondrous to boost the immunity of the cells and restore the normal cell production rate in your marrows. This goes a long way in obliterating the damage caused by blood cancer.
  3. The right diet: Consuming the most favourable foods are essential while battling cancer. An alkaline diet comprising of coconut water, warm, fresh nutritious food like leafy greens, apples and nuts must be regularly consumed. Greasy, spicy and lavish dishes should be avoided since they are known to generate harmful 'ama' in your body.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Blood cancer is caused by abnormal growth of one of the component of blood causing suppression of others. Hence leading to symptoms like prolonged fever, anaemia, bleeding, bone pains. Etc. There is no specific prevention except for to save from known carcinogens and undue exposure to radiation. Routine blood check up helps in identifying it.

Sepsis is one of the common complications of chemotherapy as blood counts are reduced due to chemotherapy which reduces body's ability to fight any infection. So don't worry sepsis can be managed by course of IV antibiotics. Sometimes systemic infection can cause complications and requires ICU care. So don't worry trust and talk to your treating physician about this.

Dear lybrate-user, There is no specific reason for your fever. It has no relation with your thyroid cancer. May be some times high dose of Eltroxin may stimulate it. Simple symptomatic management for fever will cure you. Relax.

HPV Vaccine update

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Cardiologist, Delhi

Hpv vaccine update

Three different vaccines, which vary in the number of HPV types they contain, are available

  1.     A bivalent vaccine, targets hpv types 16 and 18
  2.     A quadrivalent hpv vaccine, targets hpv types 6, 11, 16, and 18
  3.     A 9-valent vaccine, targets the same hpv types as the quadrivalent vaccine (6, 11, 16, and 18) as well as types 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58
  4.     If cost and availability are not issues, use 9-valent vaccine for individuals for whom hpv vaccination is indicated
  5.     Infection with human papillomavirus (hpv) types 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58 is implicated in approximately 90 percent of invasive cervical cancers.
  6.     Two types associated with genital warts are (6 and 11)
  7.     Routine immunization should be offered to boys and girls aged 11 to 12, but can be administered as early as nine years of age. Catch-up vaccination should be offered to males between the ages of 13 to 21 and females between 13 to 26 years who have not been previously vaccinated. Repeat vaccination with the 9-valent vaccine is likely not warranted for individuals who have completed a series with a different HPV vaccine.
  8.     Persistent viral infection with carcinogenic HPV types causes virtually all cancer of the cervix and most cases of anal cancer. The carcinogenic types, HPV 16 and HPV 18, which are targeted by the current HPV vaccines, cause approximately 70 percent of all cervical cancers worldwide and 72 percent of anal cancers. Hpv types 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58 are estimated to cause an additional 19 percent of invasive cervical cancers. Hpv 6 and HPV 11 cause approximately 90 percent of genital warts.
  9.     Hpv immunization is most effective among individuals who have not yet been infected with HPV (eg, before sexual debut).
  10.     The quadrivalent vaccine and 9-valent are administered in three doses at time zero and at two and six months of follow-up. The bivalent vaccine is administered in three doses at time zero, and at one and six months of follow-up.
  11.     Cervical cancer screening is recommended for any woman 21 years of age or older.
  12.     Clinicians should be aware that HPV immunization is not effective in clearing cytologically evident disease or HPV infection that is already present.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, Doing a biopsy doesn't make a cancer spread. Of course the biopsy needs to be done by a surgeon or surgical oncologist who understand the pathology properly. Unfortunately homeopathy for whatever they claim does not cure any swellings/lumps or any cancer. You can show a surgeon or surgical oncologist. If it's a simple swelling like lipoma or fibroma, you don't need any surgery

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Symptoms and Signs of Breast cancer: A Change In How The Breast Or Nipple Feels Nipple tenderness or a lump or thickening in or near the breast or underarm area A change in the skin texture or an enlargement of pores in the skin of the breast (some describe this as similar to an orange peel’s texture) A lump in the breast (It’s important to remember that all lumps should be investigated by a healthcare professional, but not all lumps are cancerous.) A Change In The Breast Or Nipple Appearance Any unexplained change in the size or shape of the breast Dimpling anywhere on the breast Unexplained swelling of the breast (especially if on one side only) Unexplained shrinkage of the breast (especially if on one side only) Recent asymmetry of the breasts (Although it is common for women to have one breast that is slightly larger than the other, if the onset of asymmetry is recent, it should be checked.) Nipple that is turned slightly inward or inverted Skin of the breast, areola, or nipple that becomes scaly, red, or swollen or may have ridges or pitting resembling the skin of an orange Any Nipple Discharge—Particularly Clear Discharge Or Bloody Discharge It is also important to note that a milky discharge that is present when a woman is not breastfeeding should be checked by her doctor, although it is not linked with breast cancer. For further queries get back to me.
