This is the treatment. If culture is negative you have no infection and I cannot see a reason for prostatitis as you say.

Hello Sir. My mother has been operated for Breast cancer 4 years ago and since then. She has been taking antisteroidal medicine as prescribed by our MD. But from last 12 months. She is suffering from chronic cough and since then. We r taking treatment from well known MD in our city but she never felt considerable relief from any treatment. Recently under guidance from our oncologist in Nagpur. We performed Pet CT SCAN for mom to check any possibility of growth of metastatic cancer but. Fortunately her reports are normal. Now our MD in Akola diagnosed her for ACE test. But according to her test reports her ACE level is low than normal. And doctor now have prescribed her medication for Tuberculosis and some calcium supplements tabs. So I request you Sir Please study this critical medical condition of my mother and suggest me a proper medical treatment strategy for my mom. Thank you Sir.

Dear lybrate-user, I am happy that your mother does not have metastatic disease. Your doctor has diagnosed her as a case of tuberculosis for which she is getting treatment. If you feel that she is not getting any relief from chronic cough the she needs complete re-evaluation for which I suggest you to send me all details and investigations of breast cancer and all details of recent investigations. If any more investigation is needed I will suggest you and guide you about her further management.

I have prostrate cancer And I am at very last stage My check up is going on But I just wanted to know that is there any treatment fir this and if yes then where?

Treatment for prostate cancer is possible. Depending on the age of the patient, biopsy report, PSA level and staging of prostate cancer, following treatment modalities are available: Active Surveillance: is for very low or low grade prostate cancer and for patients who have expected lifespan of <10-15 years. Monitoring with PSA blood tests, digital rectal exams (DREs), ultrasound and prostate biopsy. If any change in risk factors immediate appropriate treatment is instituted. Surgery: appropriated choice for localized prostate cancer that has not spread beyond prostate gland. Appropriate approaches are Open, laparoscopic and robotic. Whenever possible nerve sparing radical prostatectomy is preferred. Side effects of Radical Prostatectomy: Urinary incontinence Most men regain at least some bladder control after a few weeks. Nurse or doctor can teach exercise to help recovery of bladder control. Erectile dysfunction: Surgery may also damage nerves near the prostate and cause erectile dysfunction. Sexual function usually improves over several months, but for some men, this problem can be permanent. Loss of fertility Radiation Therapy: for cure it is given in localized prostate cancer. Usually preferred over surgery if localized prostate cancer is associated with high risk features. Side effects: Bowel problems: Diarrhea, sometimes with blood in the stool, rectal leakage, and an irritated large intestine are problems that usually go away over time, but in rare cases they don’t. Bladder problems: frequence, burningor may be blood in your urine. Bladder problems usually get better over time, but for some men they don’t go away, with the most common problem being the need to urinate often. Trouble controlling urine (incontinence). Erection problems Feeling tired: Radiation treatment may cause severe tiredness. It may not go away until a few months after treatment stops. Urethral stricture Second malignancy: rarely, example; rectum Palliative radiotherapy is given for painful bony metastasis or weight bearing bones Hormone therapy: for advanced stage disease or for recurrence Chemotherapy: usually given for advanced disease when it become refractory to hormone therapy.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your brother. As I understand, an esophagus cancer as in your brother's case is usually an aggressive cancer. Especially, in the context of a recurrence/ metastasis (to liver and pancreas) despite earlier chemo/radio therapy, neither a cure nor his overall survival can be guaranteed at this juncture. Nevertheless, given his serious condition, as you describe, I would advise that he be given prompt and appropriate palliative care/ support first, preferably in a hospital setting. Again, in the above-mentioned context, I can at most make a sincere attempt to improve his quality of life through safe complementary & alternative medicines (CAM), as an adjunct to the ongoing mainstream conventional treatment, if any. You can connect with detailed diagnostics and treatment history for further traction using CAM. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

Bone Cancer - Risk Factors Associated With It!

Bone cancer is a rare form of cancer in the cancer family. It affects one of the bones of your body and spreads to other bones. But, more often, it has the tendency to affect the long bone in the legs and the arms. There are many types of bone cancers. While some of them can affect children, the others typically affect the adults. This type of cancer is different than those cancers which get initiated from other parts of the body and spread to the bones.

What are the symptoms of bone cancer?
The typical signs and symptoms of bone cancer include acute pain in the bone, tenderness in the affected area, swelling of certain bones, a tendency of bone breakage, fatigue with little or no effort, unexplained weight loss, shortness of breath etc.

What are the causes of bone cancer?
There is no particular reason for bone cancer. Studies have shown that an error in the structure of the DNA leads to bone cancer. This error leads the bone to grow and divide in an uncontrolled manner leading to non-extinction of cells. These cells keep growing and form a mass invade to other parts of the body, leading to cancer.

What are the different types of bone cancer?
The type of the bone cancer can be distinguished from where cancer originates from. Some of the common bone cancer type includes the following:

  1. Osteosarcoma: This is the form of cancer that originates from the bone cells and is often witnessed in young adults and children. They often attack the arm and the leg.
  2. Chondrosarcoma: This form of cancer begins from the cartilage cells. The exact place of damage appearance includes legs, arm, and pelvis. This is typically observed in middle-aged persons in older adults.
  3. Ewing's sarcomaThough researchers are yet to find out the location this form of bone cancer originates from, it is mostly considered to affect the legs, arms, and legs of young children.

What are the risk factors?
While doctors are yet to researching for the exact reason of bone cancer, there are certain risk factors which have been associated with the bone cancers.

  1. Inherited genetic syndromes: Certain genetic condition such as the hereditary retinoblastoma and Li-Fraumeni syndrome which are passed on from generations are a prime culprit of bone cancer.
  2. Paget's disease: This is a bone-related disorder that affects the bone and increases the chance of bone cancer.
  3. Radiation: Exposure to a huge amount of radiation increases the chances of bone cancer and other associated cancers.

How is bone cancer detected?
Imaging tests such as the bone scan, x-ray, MRI, PET scan and the CT scan can diagnose bone cancer. Apart from these, oncologists might order a biopsy that includes removing a part of the tissue and test the same in a laboratory can also help to detect bone cancer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Oncologist.

My mother is a patient of breast cancer which was detected in 2015 in 4th stage chemotherapy and necessary surgical treatment done .but in years 2016 herpes was detected and so her oral chemo was stopped which resulted in redevelopment of cancer germs near the brain and lungs. The chemotherapy was restarted from spinal chord. As a result some problems developed in the heart and she had to depend on oxygen for 15 days. Her chemo was stopped since 2months ago. Now from few days she felt constipation and nauseatic and vomiting tendency. WBC increased along with sever pain in her back and sever headache too memory loss to some extent and also of appetite. She had to be hospitalised with increased BP, body trembling and sugar after blood Dr. Said it a case of sever infection. She was admitted in ICU for 3 days since 18.12.17 and the said trouble is controlled to a very little extent. She is not feeling comfortable and behaves unruly and aggressively. I am requesting your honour to think over her trouble and advice or suggest for her early relief.

Mam if it is totally depigmented it could be vitiligo. If it still has some colour then it could be something else.
