A urine test may be recommended to look for blood, bacteria, or cancer cells. These tests may suggest that kidney cancer is present, but they cannot be used to make a definite diagnosis. Let's have a detailed discussion for better advice and healthy lifestyle.

I am taking azulix 2mf for dm. My concern is about the recent controversy on the ndma impurities in certain prolonged release metformin which can lead to cancer. Would taking an immediate release metformin be better? Can I get advise on which pharmaceutical's metformin is safe (with least ndma impurity)

Nitrosamines increase the risk of cancer at above acceptable levels over long periods of time. We don't expect short term exposure at levels above acceptable levels would increase cancer. However, consult a good physician for further information in this regard.

Most leukoplakia patches are noncancerous, though some show early signs of cancer. Cancers on the bottom of the mouth can occur next to areas of leukoplakia. And white areas mixed in with red areas may indicate the potential for cancer. Let's have a detailed discussion for better advice and medication plan.

lybrate-user, your father is diagnosed as cancer in esophagus (food pipe). According to your description looks like he is still good condition to undergo radiation therapy and weekly chemotherapy together, if he is not operable. Few routine investigations and symptomatic treatment can keep the patients side effects in check. This will help in improving his swallowing capacity and quality of life. He may also need high calories nutritional/diet supplements support. Along with all this lot of psychological and motivational support also will be needed to go through this journey. The matter of fact is all treatments for cancer have few side effects. Many of which are temporary and patient recovers from it soon. In case he can't tolerate chemotherapy, he can continue with only radiation therapy. Please go ahead and get him proper evidence based (depending on his stage of disease) treatment at any cancer centre by an oncologist. Wish your father speedy recovery.

Dear doctor I have a doubt. When a cancer patient reduces weight due to excessive anxiety, the cancer will become worse? Or not?

Excessive anxiety always lead to damage immune system. If immune system damage then many more possiblity to damage the things. It doesn't matter of cancer or any other illness. So don't be anxious enjoy your life. Just learn a simple fact that in this world who had come must be gone. So why to worry about the real truth. Just enjoy your life.

Nanoxel chemo can similar as paclitaxel chemo can both are same to take a therapy to patient.

Nanoxel chemo is same as paclitaxel. Only thing nanoxel has nanoparticle bound paclitaxel. It does not require steroid premedications and chances of hypersensitivity is low. Useful in diabetic patients where giving steroids are difficult thanks.
