Dear lybrate user Mr. Lybrate-user, you need to get her checked if there is underneath any inflamation. If yes antibiotics taken after the consultation with the doctor will relieve her. As such there are many more causes. A check up is warranted. Dr. J. Ticku.

Hello doctor. I am a lymphoma patient now my treatment is over. (chemotherapy and radiation). Last 2 days I was fasting. Is their any problem for that. Should I fast for following days, because my treatment was at ramadan time.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Please avoid fasting as the body needs more energy to recover from the side effects of treatment. You may feel drained and healing will be poor.

Hi lybrate-user, The Tumor removed should have been sent to lab for the histopathological report. Only if the histopathology is been reported as malignancy or carcinoma then the confirmation of cancer to be confirmed. If not then there is no malignancy.

6 Ways to Prevent a Healthy Prostate!

Cancer is the most dangerous disease noticeable throughout the world. The most common type of cancer that affects men is prostate cancer. Prostate is a small exocrine gland situated directly below the bladder and in front of the rectum. This is gland is approximately in size of a walnut and plays an important role in production of a milky fluid during orgasm of sex in which the semen travels. During the climax stage of the prostate gland is forced to push the fluid and remove the semen out of the reproductive structures.

Prostate gland is a slow progressive disease which makes many males left unidentified even the presence of prostate cancer even until they die. 6 out of 100 male over the age of 60 are getting prostate cancer. Though prostate cancer can be cured at a better rate when compared to other type of cancer it is always best to stay protected. Prevention is always better than cure. Here are few tips to keep your prostate healthy.

Signs and symptoms of prostate cancer-

During the early stages of prostate cancer there are usually no symptoms. Most men at this stage find out they have prostate cancer after a routine check up or blood test. When symptoms do exist, they are usually one or more of the following:

  1. The patient urinates more often

  2. The patient gets up at night more often to urinate

  3. He may find it hard to start urinating

  4. He may find it hard to keep urinating once he has started

  5. There may be blood in the urine

  6. Urination might be painful

  7. Ejaculation may be painful (less common)

  8. Achieving or maintaining an erection may be difficult (less common).

If the prostate cancer is advanced the following symptoms are also possible:

  1. Bone pain, often in the spine (vertebrae), pelvis, or ribs

  2. The proximal part of the femur can be painful

  3. Leg weakness

  4. Urinary incontinence

  5. Fecal incontinence

Ways to have a healthy prostate –

  1. Diet and weight – the most important factor is the diet to maintain a healthy weight. Avoid fatty food items and take fats from vegetables than from animals. Avoid dairy products and increase the intake of fresh fruits and vegetables.

  2. Exercise – have a regular practise of doing exercise at least for 30mins a day. This really helps you to keep your body fit.

  3. Be precautious – if you have a family history of prostate cancer or if you feel you are at high risk of getting prostate cancer talk with your doctor about it and take preventive drugs as per the doctor’s advice.

  4. Red foods – research shows that men who consume red foods like watermelon, tomato and other red fruits are at lower risk of getting prostate cancer as they contain a powerful antioxidant called lycopene

  5. Caffeine – three to four cups of coffee per day reduces your risk of getting prostate cancer.

  6. Stop smoking – if you are at high risk of getting prostate cancer it is best advised to quit smoking and alcohol.

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

I found a small breast lump near my nipple area. What should I do now? I also have PCOS. Please advise.

Some lumpish feeling can be due to hormonal changes while mensutral cycle. Then also you should go for ultrasonography of breast. And then surgical consultation.

My smear campaign

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Kota

Have a pap smear once a year. Not on our list of favourite things, but it’s vital. Cervical cancer kills 200 000 women a year and it’s the most prevalent form of cancer among black women, affecting more than 30 percent. 

But the chances of survival are nearly 100 percent if it’s detected early. Be particularly careful if you became sexually active at an early age, have had multiple sex partners or smoke.

What is the reason for cancer? What are the precautions? What are the symptoms? What is the treatment for that?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir cancer is caused by abnormal uncontrolled growth of cells due to some change in genetic make up which control cells and their growth. This charge could be due to some infection, chemicals, radiation exposure, pollution, pesticides, tobacco etc. Symptoms depends on the site of disease, mostly it is painless lump, unexplained weight loss, nonhealing ulcer, abnormal bleeding etc. Prevention of all kinds of carcinogenic substance, regular exercise, healthy diet help in prevention. Treatment is done by combination of chemotherapy, Surgery and radiation therapy depending on the organ effected.

My father is 77 years old. On 15th. Of November he was operated for prostate which was 34 gms. In his biopsy we came to know about carcinoma of Gleason scale 4+3=7 after a month of waiting we got PSA of 9.372.Please let me know the prognosis of it's spreading to other parts and how much aggressive it can be. Earlier our Doctor suggested a 'Watchful Wait'in his case. I want to know is it alarming? He has diabetes which is controlled by Reclide tablet and for BP he takes Ciladuo (BD). Thanks.

I presume he underwent prostate surgery for benign enlargement and cancer was detected incidentally. Hopefully an MRI and bone scan was done for staging to confirm that its a localised disease. We advise watchful waiting or active surveillance for those with localised, early stage and low risk disease or intermediate risk disease in patients with very high comorbidities, reducing the life expectancy of <10 years. Gleason of 7 and PSA below 10 puts him in the intermediate risk hence watchful waiting would have been advised due to comorbidities as the chances of him dying of comorbidities in 10 years is higher than him developing mets of prostate cancer and dying due to the same.

Hey, it has been diagnosed that I have fibroadenoma in my left breast. Doctors told that its happen in teen age sometimes but not dangerous at all. I just want to know if this can become cancerous or not.

General Surgeon, Kanpur
No fibroadenoma do not become cancerous. But there is no medical management for fibroadenoma. If it is symptomatic or bothering u cosmetically then u can get it removed surgically.
