My father was detected with localized prostate cancer last year and was followed by a heart attack later. His age is 61 years. He then have to undergo angioplasty with a non-drug eluting stent. Over one year has passed and his Stress test reports are excellent now as per cardiologist. Can he undergo a radical prostatectomy (prostate cancer surgery ) now or it will be risky for him to undergo surgery? Thank you.

Hello doctor I am 20 yrs, sometimes there is pain pain in my left testicle and my right hips pain most of the time while sleeping and riding scooty (since 8 months) recently I did ultrasound and I got the impression that I have bilateral minimal hydrocele and median raphae with normal thickness (according to me I just feel a painless line which starts from slight bottom side of the left testicle and goes up and it also crosses the upper epididymis. And before few weeks consulted a doctor, during checkup he asked me by holding one of the skin near to the left testicle (the skin might be attached to the vasdeference or the skin might be attached to chord structures, bt I can only say it was Not the epididymis) whether its paining or not? I answered him no. But after returning I came to know while checking that skin, the skin was actually hurting a bit. Is there any involvement of tumor or cancer? Why that skin is hurting a bit while holding it? Is that a median raphae or something else? I also did hip X-ray and the report was normal I am so much worried doctor, help me out. I am so much afraid.
Hello doctors, my mother had breast cancer operation 3 week ago. Now the doctors are telling me to have chemotherapy. But I don't want her to have chemotherapy and I requested them to give her oral chemo but they are not at all ready to do so? So will oral chemo work or not and is it necessary for chemotherapy. As the doctors have said that they have no guarantee that even after giving chemo the cancer will not be created again . So refer me !

Knowing This Can Help You Prevent Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer is the most common cancer to affect the female reproductive system. The exact cause of ovarian cancer is not yet known and the risk factors involved are numerous, the most prevalent of which are genetic defects and hereditary problems.
The symptoms of ovarian cancer are not always clear and range from pelvic and abdominal pains to irregularities in the menstrual cycle. Women beyond the age of 50 are most at risk of developing this type of cancer and the risk factor increases in case of family history.
Prevention of Ovarian Cancer
There is no sure shot way of preventing ovarian cancer. Some factors such as genetics cannot be controlled at all. There are, however, ways to take precaution against it through some simple lifestyle choices. A few of those ways are as follows:
• Eat a healthy balanced diet which is rich in all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals that the body requires for boosting and maintaining immunity.
• Exercise regularly and stay active. Maintaining fitness is an important aspect of preventing the onset of all sorts of diseases and disorders.
• Go for frequent health checkups and make regular consultations with your gynaecologist so as to ensure early detection of the problem.
Another notable way of avoiding ovarian cancer is taking birth control pills which are known to reduce the risk levels. However, studies have shown that there are other health risks associated with taking birth control pills and hence you should always consult a gynaecologist for a proper prescription.
