What are the symptoms of skin cancer. If a person suffer from the skin cancer. How can he will be safe from the skin cancer and what is the limit of the skin cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Skin cancers present as ulceration or growth over skin, pigmentation or mole which starts increasing suddenly, lymph node enlargement or swelling etc. Since skin is external organ most problems are identified easily unless ignored. One of the risk factors is ultraviolet radiation exposure, one should avoid too much exposure and use sunscreen. Black skin people are naturally protected due to pigment melanin in our skin. Limit use of chemicals over skin directly and any ulceration or infection should be promptly treated.

Get a breast ultrasound done and get an fnac done. There are more chances of it being benign from your description. It may be something totally harmless and can be removed surgically if the patient wants.

Hello doctor. My father was diagnosed with ca prostate two years back. He was treated with hormone therapy and radiations. The hormone therapy is over now and he was advised to undergo a pet scan as a follow up. The report says that he has a 21x21 mm lump in the right lobe of the lung with positive feeding sign max suv 10. What does this mean? is this a case of metastasis in the lungs or a primary malignancy? please help. I am worried. And please throw some light on the treatment. Thanks.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Prostate ca do metastasizes. Check bones and ct brain also. Hope your oncologist must have done these. Lung sol appears to be a metastasis than a separate primary focus. However oncologists are best person who can and should speak to you about yours father's prognosis. Pet scan is better investigation for malignancy. Please follow their advice. You need treatment again. Aiims, New Delhi, Tata memorial, at Mumbai, cmc vellore, Chennai - any one of them are some best centers in our country for treatment and/or opinion.

Prostate Cancer - Ayurvedic Remedies For It!

Prostate Cancer - Ayurvedic Remedies For It!

The prostate is a small gland positioned around the urethra and is responsible for creating the fluid to be ejaculated that contains semen. Commonly described as the shape and size of a walnut, the prostate has many important functions within the male reproductive system. Reports of cancer of this organ have become very frequent. Ayurveda has very effective treatments that not only stop the spread of the cancer, but can actually cause partial or full remission.

Some Ayurvedic treatments for Prostate cancer:

  1. Haritaki and Terminalia Chebula: When mixed with honey and ghee, this medication is known to be very effective in treating anemia. However, it is also very effective in fighting tumors and cancer cells and thus is both a supplement to the body as well as fighter of illnesses.
  2. Amalaki or Emblica Officinalis: One of the most used and go to remedies within Ayurveda is amalaki which is frequently used to cure digestive problems. It is also an antioxidant and quickly drains out free radicals from within the body. This helps in cancer treatment, immunity boosting and improving metabolism.
  3. Vibhitaki or Terminalia Belerica: This is an excellent medication, which is very beneficial in purifying blood and removing toxins from the body. It is very good in increasing red blood cell count, which is very important when the body is fighting any form of cancer. Thus it is effective in the case of prostate cancer as well.
  4. Guduchi or Giloy: This medication is very good to fight calcium deficiency and is very effective at fighting infections as well. This is necessary to ensure that the body is protected while it is fighting the cancerous cells.
  5. Curcumin or Curcuma Longa: This is one of the wonder drugs being touted around as the next big thing in fighting cancer. Curcumin is the primary chemical in turmeric and is known to be very effective in the prevention of growth and spread of cancer cells.
    1. Punarnava or Boerhavia Diffusa: This is a great medication, which helps improve blood flow to and from the kidneys and also helps in increasing the count of red blood cells. All these properties make this particular species of flowering plant an absolute master when it comes to preventing prostate cancer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

USG Report showed Prostate borderline engagement in size but normal shape. Measure: 40.5 mm x 33.0 mm x 32.4 mm and Volume: 22.7 cc (approx).

Prostate size does not matter until and unless associated with lower urinary tract symptoms. Do not go with the report, you may need medicines if you develop symptoms due to that enlarged prostate. Sometym patient with prostate size 80 cc may not have any symptoms and few with 24 cc have severe troublesome symptoms. So do not focus on what report says. You can go for surgery for gall stones.

Dear, most of the prostate enlarged turn to malignancy. First check your psa. To rule out malignancy. Many ayurvedic drugs as well as allopathic drugs claim to reduce the enlargement but which one actually helps is a matter of chance. Surgery is indicated if the uncontrolled symptoms are there.

LUNG Cancer - What You Need to Know

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
LUNG Cancer - What You Need to Know
There's no sure way to prevent lung cancer, but you can reduce your risk if you:

1. Don't smoke. If you've never smoked, don't start. Talk to your children about not smoking so that they can understand how to avoid this major risk factor for lung cancer. Begin conversations about the dangers of smoking with your children early so that they know how to react to peer pressure.

2. Stop smoking. Stop smoking now. Quitting reduces your risk of lung cancer, even if you've smoked for years. Talk to your doctor about strategies and stop-smoking aids that can help you quit. Options include nicotine replacement products, medications and support groups.

3. Avoid secondhand smoke. If you live or work with a smoker, urge him or her to quit. At the very least, ask him or her to smoke outside. Avoid areas where people smoke, such as bars and restaurants, and seek out smoke-free options.

4. Avoid carcinogens at work. Take precautions to protect yourself from exposure to toxic chemicals at work. Follow your employer's precautions. For instance, if you're given a face mask for protection, always wear it. Ask your doctor what more you can do to protect yourself at work. Your risk of lung damage from workplace carcinogens increases if you smoke.

5. Eat a diet full of fruits and vegetables. Choose a healthy diet with a variety of fruits and vegetables. Food sources of vitamins and nutrients are best. Avoid taking large doses of vitamins in pill form, as they may be harmful. For instance, researchers hoping to reduce the risk of lung cancer in heavy smokers gave them beta carotene supplements. Results showed the supplements actually increased the risk of cancer in smokers.

6. Exercise most days of the week. If you don't exercise regularly, start out slowly. Try to exercise most days of the week.

He is a cancer patient (onco) n has been operated over the mouth five times since 2011 n currently he is under treatment by chemotherapy n radiation. Any effective medication in ayurveda or homeopath?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Homeopathic remedies work on following basis 1. Type of cells causing cancer 2. The common presenting discomfort unique or associated with your disease state. 3. The advancement of disease leading to what kind of effects on your body. 4. What is the state of vitality of your body 5. The pace of disease. Homeopathic cancer remedies are effective in reducing the pace of disease. Followed by more vitality and very less discomforts along. Once we reach this state, we start rigorous treatment which help cure the cancer. The cancerous tissue gets encapsulated as calcified lesion. If it is creating pressure effects on surrounding tissues, surgery is sought for it.

DNB, MBBS

One can experience vague abdominal pain, painless haematuria, difficulty in passing urine, lump in abdomen. Usually they are undiagnosed for long as other kidney takes over the function. Routine ultrasound abdomen will help in catching asymptomatic renal cell carcinoma.
