Gynaecological Cancer - Types You Must be Aware of!
Gynecological cancer is any tumor that begins in a woman s reproductive organs. Cancer is usually named after the part of the body where it begins. Gynecologic cancer starts in different areas within a woman s pelvis, which is the territory beneath the stomach and in the middle of the hipbones. There are different types of gynecological cancers and these are as follows:

Cervical cancer starts in the cervix, which is the lower, narrower end of the uterus. The uterus is also called the womb.
Ovarian cancer starts in the ovaries, which are situated on each side of the uterus.
Uterine cancer starts in the uterus, the pear-shaped organ in a woman's pelvis where the child develops when a lady is pregnant.
Vaginal cancer starts in the vagina, which is the empty, tube-like channel between the base of the uterus and ends as the vaginal opening.
Vulvar cancer starts in the vulva, the external part of the female genital organs.
Signs and symptoms of the above-mentioned gynecologic cancers can be very vague; however, there are a few issues each lady needs to know about and look for. The following are some of the common symptoms of different gynecological cancer:

Swollen leg (ordinarily happens in one leg and comes with pain or discharge)
Irregular vaginal bleeding (particularly in a lady who has experienced menopause)
Unexplained weight loss
Consistent bladder weight or increased urination
Loss of appetite, while always feeling full
Pelvic or stomach pain
Bloated stomach
Consistent weakness
Compelling, sudden onset bloating
Trouble eating or feeling full rapidly
Urinary indications (urge or recurrence)
Vaginal draining or spotting after menopause
New onset of heavy flow during periods or bleeding between two-period cycles
A watery pink or white discharge from the vagina
Two or more weeks of steady pain in the lower abdomen or pelvic region
Pain during sex
A red, pink or white bump that has a crude or wart-like surface
A white area that feels unpleasant and rough
Continuous itching
Pain or a smoldering feeling while urinating
Bleeding and discharge not connected with monthly cycle
An open sore or ulcer that lasts over a month
A large portion of the symptoms connected with gynecologic cancers may occur due to other reasons every once in a while, which may make us ignore them. It is vital to be tuned into your body and pay consideration on any progressions. In case you see new side effects that are happening every day for more than a couple of weeks, this can be an indication of gynecological cancer. Try not to worry. Make sure to go for regular check-ups at your gynecologist. If you feel that the aforementioned symptoms are persistent, seek immediate medical attention.

गर्भाशय कैंसर के लक्षण - Symptoms Of Uterus Cancer!

गर्भाशय कैंसर के लक्षण - Symptoms Of Uterus Cancer!
जब गर्भाशय की आंतरिक परत की कोशिकाएं आवश्यकता से अधिक बढ़ जाती हैं, तो उस स्थिति में गर्भाशय का कैंसर होता है. इसे बच्चेदानी का कैंसर भी कहते हैं. यह कोशिकाएं वृद्धि करके शरीर के अन्य भागों में भी कैंसर फैला सकती हैं. यह आकार और संरचना में नाशपाती जैसा होता है. जन्म लेने से पहले बच्चे महिलाओं के गर्भ के इसी भाग में रहते हैं. गर्भाशय में 2 मुख्य भाग होते हैं : गर्भाशय ग्रीवा गर्भाशय का निचला भाग है जो योनि में खुलता है. गर्भाशय के ऊपरी हिस्से को कॉर्पस कहा जाता है. यद्यपि गर्भाशय ग्रीवा भी गर्भाशय का ही हिस्सा होती है. जब लोग गर्भाशय के कैंसर के बारे में बात करते हैं, तो उनका मतलब कॉर्पस में कैंसर ही होता है न कि गर्भाशय ग्रीवा में. बच्चेदानी के कैंसर का प्रमुख लक्षण योनि से असामान्य रक्तस्राव या स्पॉटिंग है. एंडोमेट्रियल कैंसर का सही कारण अभी तक अज्ञात है. कुछ विशेषज्ञों का मानना है कि एस्ट्रोजन का उच्च स्तर इसके लिए जिम्मेदार हो सकता है. इससे ग्रस्त महिलाओं का उपचार अधिकतर सर्जरी द्वारा ही किया जाता है.

गर्भाशय कैंसर के लक्षण

गर्भाशय के कैंसर का सबसे आम लक्षण योनि से असामान्य रक्तस्राव या स्पॉटिंग है. हालांकि यह ज़रूरी नहीं ये लक्षण प्रदर्शित होने पर आप कैंसर से ही पीड़ित हों. इनके कई और कारण भी हो सकते हैं इसलिए डॉक्टर से अवश्य सलाह लें.

गर्भाशय कैंसर के अन्य लक्षण निम्नलिखित हैं :

* रजोनिवृत्ति के बाद योनि से सफेद पानी आना.

* मासिक धर्म के बीच में रक्तस्राव होना या पीरियड्स का सामान्य से अधिक समय तक जारी रहना.

* अत्यधिक रक्तस्राव होना, लंबे समय तक रक्तस्राव होना या 40 से ज़्यादा की उम्र में अधिक रक्तस्राव होना.

* पेट के निचले हिस्से में दर्द महसूस होना. सेक्स में अधिक दर्द होना.

गर्भाशय कैंसर के जोखिम कारक निम्नलिखित स्थितियों में आपको गर्भाशय कैंसर होने की सम्भावना होती है : आयु और रजोनिवृत्ति एंडोमेट्रियल कैंसर के अधिकांश मामले महिलाओं में होते हैं, जो 60 से 70 साल के बाद होते हैं. वास्तव में जब आप इस आयु सीमा में आती हैं या रजोनिवृत्ति से गुज़र चुकी हैं तो इस उम्र में आपको गर्भाशय का कैंसर होने की सम्भावना बढ़ जाती है. हार्मोन रिप्लेसमेंट थेरेपी (एचआरटी) हार्मोन रिप्लेसमेंट थेरेपी में एस्ट्रोजन हार्मोन मौजूद होता है लेकिन प्रोजेस्टेरोन नहीं. जिससे एंडोमेट्रियल कैंसर का जोखिम बढ़ता है. हार्मोन रिप्लेसमेंट थेरेपी कभी-कभी रजोनिवृत्ति के इलाज के लिए उपयोग की जाती है. देर में रजोनिवृत्ति होना अगर रजोनिवृत्ति अधिक उम्र में होती है तो भी गर्भाशय कैंसर होने की सम्भावना बढ़ जाती है. हार्मोनल परिवर्तन शरीर में एस्ट्रोजन और प्रोजेस्ट्रॉन हार्मोन के स्तर में असुंतलन के कारण भी गर्भाशय कैंसर की सम्भावना रहती है. क्योंकि इस स्थिति में गर्भाशय की दीवार मोटी हो जाती है और कैंसर का कारण बनती है.

गर्भाशय कैंसर से बचाव

आप एंडोमेट्रियल कैंसर से बचाव नहीं कर सकतीं लेकिन उसके होने की सम्भावना पर ज़रूर नियंत्रण रख सकती हैं. शरीर का वज़न नियंत्रित रखें क्योंकि शरीर की वसा कोशिकाएं एस्ट्रोजेन बनाती हैं. यदि आप सक्षम हैं तो स्तनपान करायें. यह ओवुलेशन और एस्ट्रोजेन गतिविधि को कम करने में मदद करता है. असामान्य रक्तस्राव का तुरंत उपचार लें. नियमित रूप से व्यायाम करें. यह आपके वजन को नियंत्रित रखने और एस्ट्रोजन का स्तर कम करने में मदद करता है. फलों और सब्ज़ियों का अधिक से अधिक सेवन करें.

Endometriosis is presence of endometrial lining at other places. It could be in the ovary, tube, parametrium etc. It is usually managed by gynaecologists by using hormonal tablets and pain killers. Is symptoms not controlled or difficult to distinguish from cancer especially ovarian then surgery may be considered. I would be able to opine better if you send me the reports. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Interventional Radiology - All You Need To Know About It!

Interventional Radiology - All You Need To Know About It!
Interventional radiology is a subspecialty of radiology that involves targeted, minimally invasive treatments. Intervention radiologists use their knowledge of examining X-rays, ultrasound and medical images, to assist doctors in guiding instruments. Catheters and other medical instruments are thus guided to treat the condition.

Common Interventional Procedures-Intervention Radiolog

Angiography is an X-ray of the blood vessels. It helps diagnose any possible blockages or infections in the arteries and veins. It employs a catheter to introduce a contrast dye into the blood vessels to produce an X-ray image of them.
Balloon Angioplasty is employed by interventional radiologists to open clogged arteries in different parts of the body. It inserts an extremely small balloon into the blood vessel and inflates it, thereby unblocking narrow and blocked blood vessels.
Vertebroplasty is used to treat fractures and spinal column lesions. It provides rapid pain relief and protection from possible future fracture or damage.
Varicocele embolization is used to treat enlarged blood vessels of the scrotum. These, if left untreated, might cause infertility and extreme pain.
Uterine fibroid embolization shrinks enlarged, painful, benign tumors present in the uterus.
Uterine artery embolization is used to control postpartum bleeding and helps prevent a hysterectomy.
Stenting involves using a small mesh tube to open ducts which have been blocked and drain bile from the liver.
Chemoembolization is used to deliver cancer-fighting agents directly to the cancerous tumor. This is the most advanced form of treatment for cancers affecting the endocrine system, melanoma, and liver cancer.
Advantages of Interventional Radiology
The many advantages of Interventional Radiology include-

Minimally invasive- With the use of interventional radiology, surgical incisions can be kept small and extremely precise. The procedures which use these techniques are minimally invasive and do not tax the patient s health.
Less use of anesthesia- The use of general anesthesia is more often than not required in these procedures. This significantly reduces the possible complications that are associated with the use of anesthesia.
Shorter Recovery period- Since these procedures are minimally invasive, the recovery period is extremely short. And the patient can return to his daily routine within a few days itself.
Cost-efficient- These procedures are also less expensive than open surgeries, making them extremely cost-efficient.
Interventional Radiology is a fast developing area of medical science and provides multiple advantages that traditional medicine does not.

Chemo and radiation are today's most reliable treatment but with lots of side effects specially at this age of patient. There are medicines in homoeopathy but the treatment plan in homoeooathy is less reliable than chemo and radio. So plz go for chemo and radio and for covering up their side effects, homoeopathy can help you surely.

6 Ways To Prevent Uterine Cancer
Uterine cancer is also known as endometrial cancer and it mostly affects the middle aged women. The uterus of a woman is a muscular organ. The cancer can affect any part of the uterus and is more common in women having obesity, diabetes and hypertension. In most cases, the cancer starts in the endometrium, hence called endometrial cancer. Uterine cancer can be cured using any of the following methods:

Surgical removal of the uterus along with ovaries, lymph nodes and fallopian tubes
Radiation therapy
Chemotherapy
Although uterine cancer is curable, it's always a better option to prevent it. You cannot control all the causes for uterine cancer like those related to heredity. But other than that, here are a few ways in which you can prevent suffering from uterine cancer:

Control body weight: Keep your body weight in control. Obesity can pose a huge risk of getting affected with uterine cancer. The fat in the body produces estrogen, which promotes the growth of uterine lining that is the Endometrium and may lead to Endometrial cancer.
Breast feed: If you are lactating, then the risk of the cancer decreases, as breast feeding decreases ovulation as well as estrogen activities.
Treat abnormal bleeding: If you are suffering from any type of abnormal bleeding, be that heavy periods, bleeding even after you reached menopause or if you start bleeding between two period cycles, consult your doctor immediately. Abnormal bleeding is the symptom of endometrial hyperplasia, which might eventually turn cancerous.
Exercise: As already said earlier, keep your weight under control to avoid uterine cancer. Exercise to avoid increase in weight leading to obesity. It also reduces the estrogen level in your body.
Healthy food: Healthy food is the key to avoid any disease, be that a common cold or uterine cancer. Eat a healthy and balanced diet everyday to be fit and bouncing.
Birth control pills: It is believed that the intake of birth control pills helps to keep uterine cancer at bay.
So eat healthy, exercise and adopt healthy habits. Then nothing can stop you from enjoying life to the fullest.

4 Diagnosis Methods Of Uterine Cancer

4 Diagnosis Methods Of Uterine Cancer
Uterine cancer is also known as endometrial cancer. It is a cancer which begins in the lining of the uterus. The uterus is the part of a woman's body where the fetus develops. Uterine cancer is one of those rare cancers in India, which can be diagnosed in its early stages. This is because excessive vaginal bleeding occurs, thus making it a very serious and an apparent symptom. It is also one of the few forms of cancer which can be cured as removing the uterus is often more than enough to cure the patient of uterine cancer.

Here are the causes, diagnosis and treatment of uterine cancer:

Causes

The exact cause of uterine cancer is not yet known, however, there is a theory on what causes uterine cancer. Hormones in a woman's body have been thought to increase the chances of getting uterine cancer. This is because it has long been thought that having high levels of estrogen is the cause of uterine cancer. Increased estrogen thickens the endometrium and thus, increases the likelihood of uterine cancer.

Diagnosis

There are several tests used to diagnose whether you have uterine cancer including:

1. Pelvic exam: This is an examination in which the vagina, bladder, rectum and uterus are scanned for lumps. If they are found, it might be due to uterine cancer.
2. Pap test: A pap test is a special test designed to scan for uterine cancer.
3. Transvaginal ultrasound: A transvaginal ultrasound uses high-intensity sound waves so that pictures of the uterus can be taken.
4. Biopsy: During a biopsy, the doctor will remove tissue from the endometrium and it will then be analyzed for cancerous growths.

Treatment

1. Surgery: This is the most common treatment as it removes the entire uterus and prevents the spreading of the cancer.
2. Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy involves giving drugs which kill cancerous cells. They are given through either an intravenous line or even in pill form.
3. Hormone therapy: This is a therapy in which either progesterone levels are increased or estrogen levels are decreased.
4. Radiation therapy: In this treatment, high energy laser beams are used to destroy cancerous cells.
