Am I more at risk if my relative have cancer and what do cancer stages and grades mean?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
It is not necessary for you to have cancer if your relative has it and whenever there is local involvement than it is stage 1 and if there is local lymphadenopathy than we can call it as stage 2 and if it has spread to other parts of the body we can call it as stage 3.

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 ).

Radiation Therapy for Tumor Patients - All You Need To Know!

MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Coimbatore
Radiation Therapy for Tumor Patients - All You Need To Know!

Radiation therapy is used for destroying the brain tumor cells, and relieves the symptoms of discomfort and pain caused by the tumor. Radiation is usually used after biopsy or resection of the tumor. This is done to destroy the microscopic cells of the tumor which have been left behind. Sometimes this is also an option for unresectable brain tumors or the metastatic tumors which spread to the brain from other parts of the body.

The radiation therapy is planned on several factors like the size and type of the tumor and the extent to which it has spread. Usually external beam radiation is used for the brain cancer and the area radiated involves the tumor and the surrounding area. In case of a metastatic brain cancer the radiation is given to the entire brain. People who have lung cancer receive radiation in the brain as a preventive therapy in order to stop the metastatic cancer from developing.

Side effects of brain cancer radiation
Depending on the site, dose, and other factors the radiation therapy when given to the brain might cause side effects. Hair loss, fatigue, edema, skin irritations are a few common side effects of brain tumor radiation. In some cases some people might develop swelling of the ankle, foot, calf and blood clots in the leg.

What is radiation therapy?
Radiation therapy is basically the use of targeted energy like X-ray and radioactive substances to kill the cancer cells, or shrink them or change the symptoms related to cancer. This therapy might be used as:

  1. Primary treatment for the destruction of the cancer cells
  2. In combination with other ongoing treatments to inhibit the growth of the cancer cells
  3. Prior to another treatment to shrink the cancer cells
  4. Post some treatment to stop the growth of any cancer cells that have been left behind
  5. To relieve cancer symptoms

Types of radiation
Some of the radiation methods commonly used are:

  1. External beam radiation therapy: In this the radiation is directed from outside the body on the cancerous cells in the body. Some examples of this are IMRT, TomoTherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, 3D conformal radiation therapy and IGRT.
  2. Internal radiation therapy: In this the radioactive substance is placed close to the tumor with the help of a catheter or some carrier. Examples of this are high-dose rate brachytherapy.
  3. Systemic radiation therapy: In this a radioactive substance is injected or swallowed, which further locates and destroys the cancerous cells. Example of this is radioactive iodine therapy.
  4. Managing radiation side effects: Radiation therapy in some cases can cause unpleasant side effects like fatigue and nausea. Thus it should be kept in mind that maximum radiation doses should be given with less or little impact on the healthy tissues. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.

Hi Doctor, How to protect our selves from getting cancer. What should be the step to protect from" CANCER" & what should be the Diet? What are the symptoms of early cancer and how can it be detected at the early stage? What are the reasons for getting cancer & is the Symptoms?

Dear kanchan, cancer is a disease which is related to lifestyle. Change in lifestyle has led to increase usage of cancer causing substances in our day to day life. Like increased industrialisation, pollution pesticides radiation exposure stress leading to increased consumption of alcohol, smoking, lack of exercise, sedentary lifestyle, we don't like to walk, we don't use bicycle, we can't climb stairs etc has lead to making our genetic system weak and prone for injury leading to mutations which control our cell growth. Because of this change, uncontrolled, unchecked growth is there leading to symptoms like lumps, ulceration, bleeding, weight loss, fever, anaemia, fatigue, change in bowelor bladder habits etc. One has to avoid known carcinogens and eat organic or properly cleaned fresh fruits and vegetables which contains antioxidants for damage repair and enhancing immunity to fight cancer.

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.

If we can detect ovarian cancer at early stages, we have a cute rate of upto 95 percent once it recurs then we won't be able to cure it. We can only control the disease, prolong survival and improve quality of life. Please continue with platinum based Palliative chemotherapy.
