Patient Review Highlights
62 years old male from Ranchi asked
I am a prostrate cancer patient since 2008. I have gone thru Radiation in the same year in TMH Mumbai and given inj Lupride 11.25 for 3 yrs. Later remained Under routine check up every 6 months. My PSA level remained well under control. However the level of PSA started increasing in2015. Urine flow slowed down as scanty amount, painful and frequency was high. I was given RAPILIF 8 mg which is continue till date. However both bone scanning and PSMA WAS done for the reason. Bone scanning was ok but PSMA showed slightly increased area. As a matter of treatment I was given high dose ELIGUARD 43.5 every 6 month from Jan 2015. PSA is well less than 01 after injection. Still I used to take RAPILIF 8 mg. Recently I developed a new problem of leakage of urine in night wetting my pants. For this gone thru Cystoscopy at TMH in Dec 22 2016 where normal report was obtained and no medicine was given except continuing with injection ELIGUARD 43.5 mg. I am to inform you that I also developed Skin cancer in 2014 fungoides mycosis and was given phototherapy PUVA for 1 year. Almost all white patches covered up tho I am in routine check up at TMH. In past 6 months my patches started appearing once again which was duly consulted at TMH. Advised to watch for next 6 months. My CONCERN IS URINE LEAKAGE DURING SLEEP. PLEASE GIVE YOUR VALUABLE ADVICE TO STOP THE PROBLEM.
Hello Mr. lybrate-user It must be difficult to go through all this for so long. You should go and see a good urologist for the incontinence of your urine. The rest of your Radiation and other treatment has been very good. All the best!

My friend told me that the smoke of the mosquito coil can cause cancer in our body. Is it true what he told me?
There are no proven studies to show that smoke from mosquito coil can cause cancer. It can cause problems in asthmatics, but definitely no evidence of causing cancer.

Hi Doctor, I would like to know as to how to prevent cervical cancer naturally. Many thanks for your suggestions/ advice here. Sincerely,
Cervical cancer can have many causes like early sexual exposure, multiple sexual partners, multiple child births and HPV virus infection.

Usually Breast cancer and cervical cancers can be detected very early. There are many screening tests to detect early cases. Also there are some screening programsfor colon cancer especially for those who have a strong famliy history.
47 years old male from Chennai asked
Normally cancer is deducted at the end stage or well developed stage, is there any test to deducted the early stage cancer. This information will be useful to many.
symptoms of cancer depend on the site where it arises. If its a throat cancer, there may be difficulty swallowing, change in voice, pain during swallowing sometimes, etc. Lung cancer may present as unresolving cough with expectoration, weight loss, loss of appetite, etc. Usually cancer is higher in smokers.

37 years old male from Navi Mumbai asked
Hi Madam / Sir, Recently my Mom diagnose with a Brest Cancer, Her age is 64, Now all tests are going at Cancer Hospital, their doctors are suggesting to go for "KEMO" but now her weight is 45 kg. Few doctors are saying to go for KEMO some are saying no to go with it. Kindly suggest that shall she can able to cure with Ayurvedic treatment without going for KEMO , Doctor's are saying she is in second stage. Please help me sir.
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, please let me caution you that, if your mother is in stage 2 breast cancer she can be cured with good survival. There are no studies that have shown cure of cancer by ayurvedic medicines, so please do not do any such thing that you may regret later. We see many patients who do the same mistake and end up with cancer spreading everywhere leading to a painful death! please do the treatment as per guidelines and the concerned oncologist. Regards.
20 years old male from Bhubaneswar asked
Hello doctor I am 20 years old. I have I small hard lump in my underneath left thighs or tip of the groin area (little back side of left thigh close to reproductive system) and that lump is inside my skin. I showed it to a oncologist and he checked and said it as a normal nodule or neurofibroma and said me not to worry. And I want to mention my medical history I have bilateral minimal hydrocele and in left I have median raphae with normal thickness . And my question is the oncologist asked me whether one testicle or both are paining. In nervousness I said both are paining , but actually the left testicle pains sometimes . I have not gave her right information. Actually the the lump is on my left thigh and the left testicle carries pain some time. If the lump is cancerous can it be related to testicle ? Doctor please tell me what to do?
Hi, please relax first of all. If the oncologist said its a neurofibroma, don't worry. Usually cancer doesn't cause pain, so you can be stress free! if you still are not satisfied, you can always take a second opinion. Good luck!
30 years old female from Bathinda asked
I am cancer patient. What precautions I should take in diet and one more question doctor I have gone through first chemotherapy but no improvement is there.
Hi. You should eat healthy balanced food. Eat whole foods, whole wheat. Cook the vegetables well. Avoid raw vegetable as you are on chemotherapy as well. Keep your immunity well by eating food rich in antioxidants. Eat fruits and berries. You have to be patient. Just one chemotherapy will not give you magical results. All the best.
A person asked
He is having tumor in his stomach. He is having piles problem. He is having asthma problem as well as cough problem What should we do. Doctors are saying that they can not operate because the condition is not good and he is weak by health.
To be operated for any cancer, the general condition of the patient should be good. If surgery is not possible as per the oncologist, systemic chemotherapy may be an option.
