Painful lumps in your age group are quite common. Nothing needs to be done to them if they are small. However examination by a surgeon should be sough to endorse and confirm the diagnosis.

Pain in breast is mostly not due to cancer. It can be due to mastitis. Some persin experience pain during menstrual period or pre mentrual symptom. Sometimes it can also be caused by some drugs. Fibrocystic disease also sometimes cause pain. You need to consult any doctor to asses the exact cause in your case. You also need to provide more details to regarding factors mentioned above.

Symptoms and Treatment of Colon Cancer

Symptoms and Treatment of Colon Cancer

Diarrhea and constipation and common digestive ailments but if these persist for over 4 weeks, it could be a sign of colon cancer. Colon cancer refers, to a type of cancer that affects the lower half of the digestive system and the large intestines. In most cases, this type of cancer begins in the form of small adenomatous polyps. However, with time, these polyps turn cancerous.

As mentioned above a change in bowel movements is one of the main signs of colon cancer. Some of the other common symptoms include:

  • Blood in the stool
  • Cramps or pain in the abdomen
  • Weakness
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • A feeling of not having completely emptied your bowel

The symptoms of colon cancer vary according to the stage of the cancer. In its early stages, many patients may not recognize any symptoms. Symptoms also depend on the location of the cancer tumour.

Colon cancer can affect men and women but elderly people are considered at a higher risk for this disease as compared to others. For this reason screening for colon cancer is considered part of a routine health checkup for people over the age of 50. Certain genetic syndromes can also increase a person’s risk of colon cancer. Additionally, a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, low fiber diet, smoking and alcohol consumption can also increase the risk of colon cancer.

Colon cancer can be treated. Treatment depends largely on the stage of cancer. There are 4 stages of colon cancer.

  1. Stage I: In this stage, the cancer would have grown through the lining of the colon but is restricted to being within the rectum and colon wall.
  2. Stage II: Here, the cancer grows past the colon walls but does not yet spread to the lymph nodes.
  3. Stage III: At this stage, cancer can be detected in the lymph nodes surrounding the colon and large intestines
  4. Stage IV: This is an advanced stage of cancer where it would have begun to affect other organs such as the lungs and liver.

Treatment for colon cancer typically takes three forms; surgery, chemotherapy or radiation.

In the case of early stage colon cancer, minimally invasive surgery may be suggested to remove the polyps and resection the colon walls. If it has turned invasive, a partial colectomy may be performed or an artificial route for waste matter may be created. In most cases, surgery will be followed by chemotherapy or radiation to kill the remaining cancer cells.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Sir doctors have done recently breast cancer surgery. My question is, can cancer can be completely cured by chemotherapy. Or only stops growing cancer cells?

MS, DNB (Surgical Oncology)
Oncologist, Jodhpur
Hello Mr. lybrate-user, The cure is based on the stage and their molecular profile and patients profile etc. So talking about cure without much information is misleading. I Understand with your question is that probably she is having early stage disease and underwent surgery already. Now the Oncologist is advising for Chemoth. This form of chemotherapy is given with the intention to address the microscopic cancer cells in the body and chemo drugs will kill cancer cells. I hope it should help you understand the matter. But please provide complete details than only one can talk in depth. Good luck.

Renal Cysts - Can They Develop Into Cancer?

Renal Cysts - Can They Develop Into Cancer?

Simple renal cysts are often found even in normal kidneys. In fact, they are so common that they are rarely considered as a disease. Certain lifestyle traits or genetics can be the cause of renal cysts occurring in adults as well as children, though no conclusive reasons have yet been confirmed for the occurrence of the same. Medical imaging technology such as ultrasound, X-ray, and CT scanning are being extensively used to discover these lesions.

In various surveys of people undergoing ultrasound for evaluation of non-kidney-related problems, generally 15% men and 7% women over the age of 50 were detected with renal cysts. Once the radiologic imaging of the cyst is obtained, the doctor can determine what further examination will be required.

There are basically two types of renal cysts, simple and complex.

  • Simple cysts are usually round, have a thin outer wall, are filled with fluid and are rarely required to be treated.
  • Complex cysts, however, can have thicker walls with solidified mass or can also be a collection of small cysts. These are definitely required to be examined further as they can be cancerous.

With the latest radiological approach to renal cysts, i.e. the Bosniak classification, observation of lesions is preferred to biopsy. Even though biopsies nowadays are largely non-intrusive, they are still recommended under very specific circumstances.

This classification uses a complicated algorithm of CT scan features like size, density and perfusion and places cystic renal masses into one of the five different categories. Categories I and II are generally simple cysts, not requiring further analysis. Still, an ultrasound is repeated at intervals of 6-12 months to ensure that the cyst is not growing. However, Bosniak category IIF cysts indicate complex cysts which are required to be observed. Lack of change with time indicates that the mass is benign, while any increase indicates the possibility of cancer. Through observation, one can prevent unnecessary surgeries.

It is mostly recommended that lesions falling under Bosniak III category should be immediately surgically removed as 40-50% have the possibility of becoming cancerous. However, close follow-up with magnetic resonance imaging can be used to avoid unnecessary surgeries as it is useful for characterizing the internal content of a cyst which may be is indeterminate even after the ultrasound and CT scan. Category IV lesions necessarily require surgical removal of the kidney, as nearly 85-100% of these are cancerous. More than 90% of those diagnosed with renal cancer which is confined to the kidney can hope to become disease-free within five years after diagnosis.

Thus, complex renal cysts have a higher possibility of developing into cancer if they are found to be malignant during the period of observation and steps should be taken for immediate removal. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
