Hi, What are the food to be take by breast cancer patient who is undergoing chemotherapy? Please answer my question.

Eat small frequent meals and plenty of water. Taking frequent sips is better than taking large quantities at a time. This would help you to remain hydrated and maintain nutrition despite the nausea of chemotherapy. While you are having chemotherapy your taste can change. Some food may taste different, for example more salty, bitter or metallic. You may no longer enjoy some foods you used to enjoy. You may want to experiment to find tastes and textures you find most appealing at this time. Your taste should return to normal once your treatment has finished, although for some people taste changes can last after treatment. You may be able to eat normally throughout chemotherapy or your eating habits may change because of the side effects of your treatment. Some people lose weight during treatment, while others gain weight. There are different types of foods we should include in a balanced diet during chemotherapy plenty of fruit and vegetables plenty of chapatis, rice, potatoes, pasta and other starchy foods choose wholegrain bread varieties whenever you can some milk and dairy foods some lean meat, fish, eggs, beans and other non-dairy sources of protein. If vegetarian, eat pulses and dals. In addition to this, you should: avoid sugary food and drinks too often avoid eating fatty foods too often not drink too much alcohol. Eat five to six small meals or snacks each day instead of three big meals. Drink milkshakes, smoothies, juice or soup if you don't feel like eating solid food. Doing something active, if you feel able to, can help increase your appetite. For instance, you might have more of an appetite if you take a short walk before lunch. Be careful not to reduce your appetite by drinking too much liquid before or during meals. You may find you eat more because some of the drugs given during treatment stimulate your appetite. If you are worried about gaining weight: choose low-fat foods and drinks eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables watch out for the sugar content of some diet foods avoid sugary drinks. Chemotherapy can make your mouth sore or dry, making it uncomfortable to eat. You might find the following tips helpful if you have a sore mouth. Clean your teeth or dentures with a soft brush after eating, and gently floss. Choose soft or liquid foods such as soups, stews, smoothies and desserts. Soothe your mouth and gums with ice cubes and sugar-free lollies. Drink sugar-free fizzy drinks to freshen your mouth. Use a straw to drink. Avoid crunchy, salty, very spicy, acidic or hot food Eating and drinking less than usual, being less active and taking some medications can all lead to constipation. Consuming high-fibre foods can help if you’re constipated. These include: wholemeal bread high-fibre breakfast cereal beans and lentils fresh and dried fruit. You should also drink plenty of fluid and do some regular, gentle exercise such as walking. If you’re still having problems with constipation, ask your specialist or GP (local doctor) for a laxative. Occasionally, some chemotherapy drugs can cause diarrhoea. If this is a problem, you can try: reducing the amount of fibre you eat eating only small amounts of fruit and vegetables drinking plenty of fluid. Your GP or specialist can prescribe medication for diarrhoea if necessary. I hope I was able to answer your query. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

Please suggest Which type of alternative therapy is available for advanced forth stage non small cell lung cancer and how can I achieve them?

There are many who claim that they can cure cancer with Ayurvedic, unani, homeopathic aswell as Tibetan medicine. If the patient was started on geftinib as per the EGFR report, then I would advise you to continue the same as it has a good chance of response and may be long lasting in a few patients. Alternative medicines may contain steroids, which can suppress cancer for a few days (steroid are a part of chemotherapy in lymphoma) and also give sense of well-being. However if it does not have a long lasting effect and the cancer may come back with a vengeance. If you want to share the details and discuss this further, feel free to contact me directly.

What is the difference between a cancerous and non cancerous lump? How much time a cancerous lump take to spread in other parts of the body?

On physical examination a cancerous lump appears hard, irregular, fixed or restricted movement and increases in size over few weeks to months. A non cancerous lump is usually well demarcated soft, smooth, and mobile. But again there may be interchangeability between the features of both. Hence, the diagnosis is usually confirmed by imaging and /or Biopsy or FNAC. Better to show any lump to an Oncosurgeon than diagnosing yourself whether it’s cancer or not. As these can spread over a few weeks to months and change prognosis of the disease. Site wise differences are beyond the scope of answering on this platform. It you want to know about something specific then feel free to contact me directly.

Love bites on the breast can cause bruising and some times minor abrasions which can lead to infection and cellulitis. Also sometimes traumatic fat necrosis could occur due to aggressive handling or fall. It is better to see a breast surgeon or a general surgeon, who would examine you and may ask for an ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis. They may need painkillers or antibiotics for a few days. I hope the advise was useful. If you have any further query, feel free to contact me directly.

How Robotic Cancer Surgery Can Benefit You?

How Robotic Cancer Surgery Can Benefit You?

With the dawn of modern technology, the sight of robots performing a surgery is fast turning into a reality. Robotic surgery is one of the latest and greatest advancements in surgical cancer care. It is mostly sought for its unmatched levels of precision and control.

The da Vinci Robot, which is a widely used robotic surgery, employs the use of 3D modelling, touch screen controls, ultra-modern surgical attachments and other robotic tools. This surgical method is one of the greatest inventions in modern surgery that aims to provide greater control to the surgeon at all times. For patients, this means quicker recovery times, minimal scarring, lower complications and higher satisfaction.

Robotic cancer surgery can be performed under the following conditions:

  1. Prostate cancer
  2. Bladder cancer
  3. Gynaecologic cancer
  4. Endocrine cancer
  5. Lung cancer
  6. Gastrointestinal cancer

Benefits of robotic cancer surgery:

  1. Less scarring: The minimally invasive approach of robotic surgery contributes to minimal scarring. Instead of having a deeper incision of up to 5 or 6” on the skin, patients can have a series of small incisions or one relatively smaller incision, based on the nature of the surgery.
  2. Shorter hospitalization: With minimal incisions, postoperative care is speeded and pain is lessened. This surgery will not require the patients to stay for a prolonged period of time in the hospital. At the most, they tend to spend up to two nights in the hospital, if the situation demands so. As a result of this, within no time, you can get back to your normal life.
  3. Less drugs: With traditional surgery, typically a patient is administered a lot of painkillers to alleviate pain. However, with robotic surgeries, thanks to decreased postoperative pain after surgery, the patient will not need excessive painkillers to help them deal with pain.
  4. No blood loss: During traditional open surgery, patients tend to typically lose between 600cc to 1000cc of blood, depending on the area of treatment. As a result, postoperative transfusion of blood becomes a necessity. However, during robotic surgery, blood loss is usually 200cc or less and so there is no need for transfusions.
  5. Accuracy and precision: The 3D modelling techniques and other advanced tools employed by robotic surgery allows for better planning and accuracy, which is greatly needed in cancer surgeries. Especially in the case of prostate cancer, if the tumour is in a critical location, then a robotic surgery is handy to carry out the procedure, without damaging the important nerves of erections.

What you mean by deadly malignant cancer? Will it spreads from one person to another.

Cancer, however deadly does not spread from one person to another like infection. Deadly cancer is usually referred by people to cancer which has already spread throughout the body or which has a chance of rapid progression and spread. Some cancers have family history and the risks are genetically transmitted. For e.g. Breast and ovarian cancers via BRCA 1 and 2 genes. HPV, HIV, HCV and HBsAg virus infections can be transmitted from person to person via sexual contact. The last three can also be transmitted via blood. HIV can also be passed from mother to child during pregnancy. If you want to further discuss the topic further in details, feel free to contact me directly for the same.

My father is year 69 year old and 10 days back we came to know that he is suffering with cancer in mouth. Kindly suggest for proper treatment.

The treatment of mouth cancer depends on the site and Stage of the cancer. I usually ask for an imaging CT scan or MRI, sometimes only ultrasound) to know the extent of the disease and nodal spread. If advanced stage, then I also ask for a PET CT scan. If early stage, then surgery. If advanced, may need surgery followed by chemoradiation or chemotherapy followed by surgery and Chemoradiation. If very advanced stage, then only CTRT or palliative. If you want to further discuss the treatment, feel free to contact me directly.

My mom has non small cell cancer of advance stage. Her lungs was filled with fluid. Gefitinib 250 is started from two days. Her age is 67 and have severe disk problem. Is there any hope.

Geftinib (Osimertinib is newer drug preferred) is usually started in Non Small cell cancer (Adeno carcinoma) if Patient is EGFR +ve, it usually responds well to the drug initially. The usual side effects are rash on the palms and soles and loose motions in some patients. The drug is continued till the disease is responding, stable or progressing only minimally (which may be a few months to a few years) If the disease shows rapid progression, 2nd line chemotherapy may be considered depending upon the General condition and age of the patient. If lungs are filled with fluid, she may need insertion of intercostal drainage tube with pleurodesis if necessary. Also is the back pain due to slip disk or bone metastasis. If bone metastasis then she may benefit from Bisphosphonates and / or palliative RT depending on the findings. Also immunotherapy drugs like nivolumab are showing promising results, but cost of almost 2lacs per month is a limiting factor. If you want to share the detailed case history and reports, feel free to contact me directly.

How To Do Self-Breast Examination?

How To Do Self-Breast Examination?

How to do Self-Breast Examination?

The best time to do your Breast self-examination is while having a shower. Soap your hands and body, then use the flat of your fingers and move them over the breasts step by step as indicated below:-

Step 1: Look at your breasts in the mirror with your shoulders straight and your arms on your hips. Observe the size, shape and colour of the breasts. Look for any deviation from normal – any visible distortion or swelling should be immediately brought to the doctor’s attention. Also, look for the following changes:-

  • Dimpling or small depression on the breast
  • Change in nipple position or inversion of nipple (nipple being inward instead of sticking out)
  • Redness, soreness, rash, or swelling

Step 2: Raise your arms and look for the same changes. Sometimes, the changes in size and shape are more evident in this position.

Step 3: Look for any signs of fluid coming out of one or both nipples (this could be a watery, milky, a yellow or bloody discharge). Gently squeeze the nipples to check for discharge and observe the colour of the discharge.

Step 4: Lie down and feel your breasts using your right hand to feel your left breast and then your left hand to feel your right breast.

  • Use a firm, smooth touch with the finger pads of your hand (ring finger, middle finger and index finger), keeping the fingers flat and together.
  • Use circular motion (each motion measuring about the size of a coin) to palpate* the breasts.
  • Cover the entire breast from top to bottom, side to side – from your collarbone to the top of your abdomen, and from your armpit to your cleavage.
  • Follow a pattern (either horizontal – side to side or vertical – up and down) to be sure that you cover the whole breast.
  • Squeeze the nipples and observe if there is any discharge.

Step 5: Repeat step 4 in standing and sitting position.

Fact- A woman who detects a lump on Self Breast Examination should undergo a mammogram [(if above 40 years of age) or an ultrasound (if she is below 40 years of age)].

Taking veltam f for enlarge prostate for five days. I had stopped it 5 days ago in response to its side effect of decreased sperm coming out during masturbation. So I want to ask how many days will it take to revert back to normal?

Why were you taking Veltam. The retrograde ejaculation is a side effect of Veltam and gets reverted back to normal once drug is stopped.
