Dear Lybrate user, thanks for having opinion, doing a surgery for uterus removal will not lead to any type of malignancy in future.

Doing routine CT scan and x Ray's Will not lead to cancer as such, but doing it very frequently unnecessarily, for many years will lead to cancer.

Thanks for reaching out to us, you have very nice query, second hand smoke is not good for any person, so better to avoid as much as possible.

Patient on chemotherapy or targeted therapy can have all types of home based food only. But all food stuff should be fresh and cooked. Those who are on targeted therapy should not have grapes and ita juice.

Cancer patient has taken 6 cycles of chemotherapy. Whether patient can eat hot (chillies) items. We have yet to go to PET Scanning.
When patient is on chemotherapy, there are some drugs which can cause mucositis, with that patient are not able to have there normal food so we advise them to have bland diet. But for some patients, they are able to tolerate chemotherapy in such a way that they don't have any side effects in those cases they can have hot (chills ).

You should meet good physician and take his advise, as such there are no specific test for your age which can be done to screen for cancer so it's to get examined by proper physician.

Sir/Mam I am having a little ball like something in my left breast, when I press it I feel pain, I noticed it almost 2 years ago, I have not consulted any Dr. Yet, I want to know that, is it a serious matter or will it be fine itself?
I don't know how old you are, certainly serious problem for elderly, may not be problem for younger. But can't be said anything without seeing it. My opinion would be to consult good surgeon, do mammogram, and biopsy whenever if on mammogram it is above BIRADS CAT 4.
I want to get blood cancer. Because I want to kill my self. Coz I want to forget someone. Bt its to difficult for me to leave that person. And that person don't want to be mine. So I don't have any Another Option. I want to kill Myself. Whenever I want to make him happy. He always get frustrated. I think if I will dead. He became happy.
Please meet some good psychiatrist, don't think get involved by cancer, no one has control on cells and there multiplication. This is not right thought. Be healthy, think healthy.

Dr. My mother and father both are cancer patients, my grandmother also died because of cancer ,So is there any possibility that in future I can also be a victim of cancer.!
There are some cancers which run in family, like colon cancer, breast cancer, gastric cancer, uterine cancer. There is one condition called Lifraumeni syndrome which can also run in family. So without making any prior investigation it's very difficult to say.

I have a tendency of tumor .i had a benign tumor in ear. Then I have multiscopy giant cell tumor at femur. So what is the remedy of removing tumor?
Now a days lots of happening in fields of cancer therapies development. But still we don't have anything to prevent cancer. The patient who are prone to develop cancer or multiple types of cancer usually have Lifraumeni syndrome, in these case also we don't have any remedy to remove it.

Hi My mother of aged 69 years suffering from final stage stomach metastatic adeno carcinoma Ascites fluid collecting in abdomen very quickly We thrice removed of fluid by paracentesis in month about 2 to 3 liter each time. As per oncology advise we are not gone for chemotherapy treatment because of age factor. How often paracentesis can be done and how much water can remove each time?
Yes, definitely elderly do very bad with chemotherapy and should be given only in patients having good performance status and nutrition status. In those who has both of these on lower side should have some other options which does not have much side effects. If you don't treat primary disease then frequency to collect fluid in abdomen will start increasing may be you need to take it out so often like 3 to 4 days.

Hey I was a smoker for last 5 yrs, consuming 5 cigarettes per day. But now I have quit smoking since one month back. But I'm really scared of the disease called lungs cancer. Do I undergo any diagnosis for my suspicion? If yes then please tell me what kind of diagnosis needed to be done? And is there any exercise or artificial way through which tar can be pulled out from our lungs. If yes then do put light on those methods. Thank you.
Well done by quitting cigarette. You need to go for any investigation for suspiciousness. You can have your normal exercises along with yoga. Don't get scared now a days cancers are curable.

Hi I am 19 years old. I have a lump in my breast which is 5 cm large and was diagnosed as a fibroadenoma by at least 6 doctors including a breast specialist on examination. The doctor doing an ultrasound says it also looks like a fibroadenoma. Recently there has been a slight swelling by my supraclavicular node area. And I have a sore throat. My shoulder gets painful at night and I have a runny nose. I'm afraid I might have cancer. Is it possible ?
It's very less likely to be cancer. You fibroadenoma which is benign. Many times patients having sore throat can have palpable lymph nodes it's not an unusual thing to see.
