See there are many antibiotics to control this kind of infection. But their effect depend upon type of bacteria which caused infection there. You should have to do urine culture and sensitivity testing. After that we can decide which antibiotic has to administer.

I had total thyroidectomy due to Thyroid cancer, calcium is in control, using 1000 mg of 1 Calcium tablet per day. And Eltroxin of 200 mcg. Problem is some times my heart races and some times I get pain in heart region. Is this because of Eltroxin? Are these symptoms dangerous? Because I never had racing heart and pain after surgery I noticed it after starting Eltroxin. I told my Doctor same but he says my body needs 200 mcg of dosage. What should I do now? I am worried if these symptoms are life threatening and can they lead to other problems? Please suggest.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Have you checked the TSH levels recently> Please check the same and comeback. Thyroxine is essential, but if the dosage is high, it can hasten the heart and also lead to pain. Thanks.

Take protein rich food ---eggs, milk products, dry fruits, seeds, pulses, mutter, soya bean. Cereals, potatoes, sweet potatoes, plantains etc. Can be useful for gaining weight. Also take vegetables, greens and fruits. Have vigorous physical exercise to improve digestion and absorption of food as well as blood circulation. Eat at regular intervals. Threptin biscuits will be helpful. Homoeopathic treatment will be beneficial to increase weight for you.

Hello Sir. My mother has been operated for Breast cancer 4 years ago and since then. She has been taking antisteroidal medicine as prescribed by our MD. But from last 12 months. She is suffering from chronic cough and since then. We r taking treatment from well known MD in our city but she never felt considerable relief from any treatment. Recently under guidance from our oncologist in Nagpur. We performed Pet CT SCAN for mom to check any possibility of growth of metastatic cancer but. Fortunately her reports are normal. Now our MD in Akola diagnosed her for ACE test. But according to her test reports her ACE level is low than normal. And doctor now have prescribed her medication for Tuberculosis and some calcium supplements tabs. So I request you Sir Please study this critical medical condition of my mother and suggest me a proper medical treatment strategy for my mom. Thank you Sir.

Dear lybrate-user, I am happy that your mother does not have metastatic disease. Your doctor has diagnosed her as a case of tuberculosis for which she is getting treatment. If you feel that she is not getting any relief from chronic cough the she needs complete re-evaluation for which I suggest you to send me all details and investigations of breast cancer and all details of recent investigations. If any more investigation is needed I will suggest you and guide you about her further management.

Vaginal Cancer - Causes And Symptoms

MBBS, MS -Gynaecologist

Vaginal Cancer - Causes And Symptoms

Generally identified as a rare and uncommon phenomenon, vaginal cancer most often occurs in the cells present in the outer lining of the vagina, also called the birth canal. Although primary vaginal cancer is rare and unusual, there are various other types of vaginal cancer that originate elsewhere in the body, but have spread over to your vagina.

Depending upon the nature of origin, vaginal cancer can be divided into the following types:

  1. Vaginal adenocarcinoma, beginning in the glandular cells on the surface of your vagina
  2. Vaginal sarcoma, developing in the connective tissue cells and multiple cells lining the walls of your vagina
  3. Vaginal squamous cell carcinoma, originates in the squamous cells lining the surface of the bacteria
  4. Vaginal melanoma, developing in melanocytes, the pigment producing cells in your vagina

Symptoms: As vaginal cancer progresses from one stage to the next, you may experience any one of the following signs and symptoms:

  1. Diluted, watery vaginal discharge
  2. Painful urination
  3. Constipation
  4. Odd cases vaginal bleeding, for instance, after menopause or after intercourse
  5. Formation of lumps in your vagina
  6. Frequent and regular urination
  7. Pelvic pain

Causes: Normally, cancer develops when healthy cells undergo genetic mutations, subsequently leading to the uncontrollable growth of abnormal cells. Cancer cells are known to break off from pre-existing tumors and can easily spread everywhere, in what is referred to as metastasize.

Beyond the natural process of development, here are a few factors, which may further contribute to the growth of cancerous cells:

  1. Increasing age
  2. Vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia
  3. Exposure to miscarriage prevention drugs 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an oncologist.

Hello sir I have early osmf My question is that chances of occurring cancer in advanced stage of osmf Or Also there chances of occurring cancer in early stage? In short cancer may occur only after advance stage of osmf?

OSMF manifests as restriction in mouth opening. Apart from predisposing a person to cancer even in early stages, it also hinders in easy inspection of oral cavity to allow early detection of oral cancers. It is a red alert sign for sure. I urge you to stop consuming tobacco in all forms.

Lung Cancer and Outdoor Air Pollution - Understanding The Risk!

MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Coimbatore
Lung Cancer and Outdoor Air Pollution - Understanding The Risk!

Lung cancer is the cancer killer of both men and women in the U.S. When you think of risk factors for lung cancer, what comes to mind? Most of us think about the risk associated with smoking cigarettes, but did you know that air pollution can also cause lung cancer? Overwhelming evidence shows that particle pollution in the outdoor air we breathe—like that coming from vehicle exhaust, coal-fired power plants and other industrial sources can cause lung cancer. Particle pollution increases the risk of dying early, heart disease and asthma attacks, and it can also interfere with the growth and function of the lungs. 

What is particle pollution?

Particle pollution is a mix of tiny solid and liquid particles in the air and can be made up of a number of components, such as acids, organic chemicals, metals, soil and dust particles. It can be emitted directly from wood stoves, forest fires, vehicles and other sources, and it can also form from other types of pollution that come from sources like power plants. 

Why does particle pollution harm our bodies?

While breathing in larger sizes of particle pollution can be harmful to our health, smaller particles are more dangerous. Bigger particles can irritate your eyes, nose and throat, but our natural defenses help us to cough or sneeze them out of our bodies. Unfortunately, those defenses don't keep out smaller particles, which get trapped deep in the lungs and can even get into the bloodstream, causing damage to our health.

Who is most at risk?

As for who is at risk for health problems from breathing in particle pollution. Those who live where particle pollution levels are high is at risk. Some people face higher risk, including children, the elderly, people with lung and heart disease and diabetes, people with low incomes, and people who work or exercise outdoors.

How do we protect ourselves from particle pollution?

Check the air quality index forecast for the day and limit your activity if pollution levels are high. Avoid exercising along heavily traveled highways regardless of the overall forecast.

As individuals, we can play our part in reducing air pollution levels by trying to avoid creating more of it. Choosing ‘active travel’ options where possible, like walking and cycling, can help reduce pollution levels from transport and is also a great way to be more active, which is linked to a reduced risk of cancer and other diseases.

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

Obesity And Cancer: How Are They Related?

Obesity And Cancer: How Are They Related?

Obesity is the new smoking - Being overweight is the second biggest cause of cancer

The health harm and cost of obesity and its related diseases are so great that it is equivalent to smoking and demands similar action, according to the head of the NHS in England.

Being overweight is the second biggest cause of cancer, after smoking, and is the major cause of Type 2 diabetes – a disease where the treatment and complications cost nine per cent of the NHS budget annually.

Obesity is the new smoking and the scale of our response needs to match the scale of the crisis

On the fence about having WEIGHT LOSS (Bariatric)  surgery? 

The decision to have bariatric surgery requires careful thought and should only be made when all weight loss surgery options are considered. You should seek as much information as possible on weight loss treatments by researching reliable sources, speaking with your primary care physician and attending a bariatric surgical seminar. Ultimately, a consultation with a bariatric surgeon and undergoing the prerequisite tests are necessary to confirm your eligibility for bariatric surgery. 

Ultimately, you are the only one who can make the final decision to undergo bariatric surgery. However, this does not mean you should make the choice completely by yourself. Seeking support and information will help you decide the best course of action.

The bariatric surgeons at Kiran Hospital, Surat are here to help you with your decision. Schedule a one on one consultation to see if you're eligible and to learn more about your weight loss surgery options.
