I am suffering from breast pain, as I consulted to our neighbouring doctors they said that, it is an hormonal variation & hence the pain occurs. But the pain is not stopped, what should I do further now?

As you are only 16 years old, there is no chance that you r suffering from any major disease. It is common among your age group and is caused by hormonal changes. It will go after some time. In the mean time you should take pain killers. You will not need to show it to anyone for the same.

Don't try self diagnosis. Consult a doctor and get examine and start therapy. Testicular cancer is very much curable, even in very late stage. So, don't waste time.

Surgery For Esophageal Cancer - Why Should You Go For It?

Surgery For Esophageal Cancer - Why Should You Go For It?

Esophagectomy is a procedure of removing a part of the esophagus and reconstructing the same using another organ of the body. The oesophagus is the tube that connects the stomach and the mouth. This procedure is often performed in an advanced stage of esophageal cancer and Barrett’s esophagus. This procedure removes the cancer cells from the esophagus and gives relief from the symptoms. The organs from where the reconstructing tissues are taken are generally large intestine and stomach.

Many esophagectomy surgeries are performed with minimally invasive techniques. The latter is commonly known as laparoscopic surgery. This is a procedure where numerous small incisions are made in order to perform the surgery. This procedure results in faster recovery and reduced pain as compared to the conventional surgery.

Newer methods such as Robotic surgery are being adopted by many doctors these days. Procedures like these can access the oesophagus through places such as the throat, collarbone and abdomen. They make a minute incision to get to the exact location of the cancer and treat them with an improved precision, unlike the conventional surgical methods.

An important aspect of treating this condition is to determine the procedure that is going to be implemented. To determine this, doctors uses imaging techniques such as PET scan, CT scan and an MRI scan. A doctor might also prescribe other tests such as FNAC and endoscopic ultrasound. Heart evaluations are also conducted before the surgery to ensure that there are no complications involved while performing the surgery.

Before Esophagectomy

Unless the cancer is detected at a very early stage, most doctors recommend radiation or chemotherapy or both. These treatments help to shrink the size of the cancer and make for an effective oesophagectomy. Both chemotherapy and radiation have their set of side effects, which include loss of appetite, fatigue, hair loss, vomiting and skin discolouration.

After Esophagectomy

Post the procedure, a patient cannot directly consume food. He is required to consume food through a pipe for a duration of four-six weeks. Adequate nutrition is required during this phase to recover quickly. Once the patient is able to resume a normal diet, it should be ensured that he takes food in reduced quantities to make up for the reduced stomach size.

Follow-up

Almost 90% of patients who have gone through this procedure report an improved life quality. While lifestyle related adjustments have to be made, there could be regular follow-ups to ensure the below mentioned complications do not arise:

  1. Breathing-related problems
  2. Swallowing problem
  3. Effectively managing heartburn and ensuring the pain is under control
  4. A thorough review of the nutritional diet to be consumed by the patient to counter sudden weight loss.

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

Hi my husband 44 years just underwent surgery for oral cancer and a month of radiation and chemotherapy after that. His entire left upper and lower palate have been removed and reconstructed. As a result he can't eat properly and the pain inside is very bad. He has contracted klebsiella pneumoniae now. He has become very irrational and aggressive and is always negative and hyper. Can homeopathy help him.

Hi, I appreciate you seeking help for your husband. In order that he is able to take his food, it is advisable to mix the food (as cooked) properly and churn it to almost liquid form so that he can take the same with ease without requiring to strain his mouth. Additionally, nutritional supplements, preferably as shakes, can be given too on a daily basis to make up for loss in nutrition, if any. For pains, if any, he can gargle with a suitable mouthwash (germicidal/ antiseptic) & apply a pain relieving gel as recommended by his oncologist, locally. Also, infection, if any, has to be addressed promptly through antibiotics, as decided by his physician. Once the active infection is arrested, he can gargle with a warm solution of chamomile tea, lemon and honey, three times daily. He can also try warm saline gargling, with a pinch of fresh turmeric/ salt added to warm water. He can take green tea, to which fresh juice of one-fourth of a lemon is added, up to 2 times daily and stay well hydrated. It is also necessary to maintain oral hygiene on a regular basis - keep mouth clean and healthy. He can reduce the risk of damage to his mouth by using good quality & soft toothbrushes and also by leveling off rough edges of teeth/ dentures, if any. Physiotherapeutic exercises (of mouth) may also help improve the mobility. However, diet / lifestyle apart, as mentioned above, certain natural/ alternative medications, including homeopathy, can be of significant help in boosting immunity, reducing pain and in improving clinical outcomes as possible contextually, recommendation of which would require me to know his detailed case history/ diagnostics. You may revert in private with the relevant details for further naturopathic traction. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.
