I have noticed some tumours on my body (on my hand and my back) which are not properly visible, but I can feel that when I touch on that. I went to a surgery Dr. and he said that it's a cholesterol thing and no need to worry and if I want I can remove it by a surgery. Those tumours are neither aching nor growing. I happened to read an article which says tumours like this are symptoms of cancer. What am I supposed to do now? Dr. says its cholesterol. But I'm still scared.

No need to worry every tumor is not cancerous. By the time you can get surgery done for one tumor and get it tested histopathologically which will clear overall status.

Prostatitis treatments vary depending on the underlying cause. They can include: Antibiotics. This is the most commonly prescribed treatment for prostatitis. Your doctor will base the choice of medication on the type of bacteria that may be causing your infection. If you have severe symptoms, you may need intravenous (IV) antibiotics. You'll likely need to take oral antibiotics for four to six weeks but may need longer treatment for chronic or recurring prostatitis. Alpha blockers. These medications help relax the bladder neck and the muscle fibers where your prostate joins your bladder. This treatment may lessen symptoms, such as painful urination. Anti-inflammatory agents. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may make you more comfortable. Prostate massage. This is done by your physician using a lubricated, gloved finger — a procedure similar to a digital rectal exam. It may provide some symptom relief, but doctors disagree about how effective it is. Other treatments. Other potential treatments for prostatitis are being studied. These treatments include heat therapy with a microwave device and drugs based on certain plant extracts

Treatment for stage 3 is neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery followed by adjuvant chemotherapy. Cytoreductive surgery is the main component and should be done optimally. If optimal cytoreductive surgery is not done rest of the treatment is also not very helpful.

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.

Enlarged prostate per se does not need treatment unless you have symptoms due to it. Prostate enlargement with age occurs due to hyperplasia of the prostate gland which is benign in nature. However due to mass effect (size effect) it may produce symptoms of various intensity. Symptoms may range from frequency, urgency, nocturnal awakening, hesitancy etc.

Fibroadenomas are the modt common cause of a breast lump between 15-30 years of age and small fibroadenomas (less than 1.2 cm) do not require any surgery. They usually resolve with time. Bigger lesions can be managed by a small surgery which can be done under local anaesthesia as wel.

It is high. There is no treatment for'reducing psa' a high psa means you should get further evaluation to find out the cause. Generally it is associated with cancer or inflammation of the prostate. Treatment will depend on the result of this evaluation.

Bladder cancer is the result of the growth of cancerous cells inside the bladder. Bladder cancer is mainly of four types:
1. Urothelial carcinoma: In this type of bladder cancer, the tumours may be limited to the bladder or spread from the urothelial to the deeper layers in the bladder. The urothelial is the epithelium lining in the renal pelvis, ureters, urethra and bladder.
2. Squamous cell carcinoma: Squamous cells are flat, thin cells that form after a prolonged infection in the bladder. The cancer starts from these cells.
3. Adenocarcinoma: Glandular cells in the bladder produce and discharge mucus. This type of cancer begins from the glandular cells.
4. Superficial bladder cancer: If the cancer is limited to the bladder lining, then it is known as superficial bladder cancer. The cancer might spread to the bladder muscle wall, or spread to the lymph nodes and organs close to it.
It is important note that, if bladder cancer is detected early, then it can be cured most of the times.

Who is at a risk of acquiring bladder cancer?
Those who smoke or have a history of bladder cancer in the family or are exposed for to industrial chemicals for long durations are at an increased risk of bladder cancer.

The symptoms of bladder cancer include:
a) Blood in urine
b) More frequent passing of urine
c) There is a sensation of pain or burning when urinating
d) Bladder is not emptied completely
e) Pain in the lower back

Bladder cancer treatment by conventional medication can be complemented by Ayurveda; especially, with the Panchakarma therapy, which detoxifies the body. Detoxification can be done by:
a) Snehana therapy that is oil massage
b) Swedana that is steaming therapy
c) Vamana that is by urging vomiting
d) Virechana that is by purging
e) Basti is the enema medication
f) Nasya or through nasal medication
g) Raktamokshana Therapy

Along with the above mentioned therapies, consuming medicated juices, which contain fruits and vegetables is good for the body. Antioxidant Ayurvedic medicines are also highly beneficial. Practicing yoga, sound therapy, pranayama, acupressure and acupuncture can help in the long run.

Sometimes, traditional cancer medication can rob the body of its strength once the symptoms are cured. Rasayan Chikitsa can help the body regain its strength. Rasayan Chikitsa improves the metabolism, memory, longevity, hair and complexion. It brings back the vigour that was lost.

Colon cancer refers to the uncontrolled growth of cancer cells in the region of your large intestine. It is often associated with rectal cancer and is termed as colorectal cancer, since the process of metastasis (a process through which cancer cells pass rapidly to the other organs of your body) is very rapid for this particular medical condition. Colon cancer is prevalent among both men and women irrespective of their age, but is generally noticed in people above forty years of age. Though the causes of colon cancer cannot be specifically identified, there are certain factors that can increase your chance of developing colon cancer.

The risk factors are mentioned below:
i. Family history of colon cancer
ii. Chronic diseases of the intestine(like inflammation of intestine)
iii. A regular diet with low fibers but high calories
iv. Diabetes
v. Obesity
vi. Consuming high amount of alcohol

If you are diagnosed with colon cancer, you may show the following symptoms:
a) Inconsistency of bowel movements. (diarrhea and constipation)
b) Passage of blood through stool
c) Pain in your abdominal region
d) Sudden weight loss
e) Body fatigue

Colon cancer can be fatal if not treated at an early stage. Ayurveda offers effective remedies for colon cancer. Some of the remedies are mentioned below:
1. Drinking green tea can be very effective. Green tea has epigallocatechin (a Polyphenol used in different dietary supplements) which can destroy the formation of cancer cells.
2. Consuming Aloe Vera is another useful technique. It cleans the digestive tract and colon region by removing harmful toxins and can thus help to cure cancer faster.
3. Turmeric is also very potent in fighting cancer. It contains curcumins which can destroy the cancer cells formed in the colon region.
4. Ashwagandha is known to have certain properties that can control the growth of cancer cells and is thus instrumental in treating colon cancer.
5. The juice of garlic has certain medicinal properties that can combat the growth of cancer cells in your colon region. Intake of garlic juice can thus be very helpful.

Since colon cancer has limited survival rates, it is highly recommended for you to seek advice from an Ayurveda practitioner if you wish to get healed naturally.

What was the surgery done 2yrs ago. If a currettage was done there is a chance of recurrence. Get an OPG done to confirm recurrence If it is a recurrence then you should go for resection of the jaw bone with reconstruction. this will be a permanent cure.

Cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of cells which may be triggered by some genetic mutations may be due to chemicals, pollution, radiation etc. Since the cause lies at genetic level the treatment has to be at that level only, but it's really very difficult to find out faulty gene which is controlling the whole process, lots of researches are going on, we may have some solutions in years to come.
