Dear sir, if only one ovary is removed and the other one is normal with healthy uterus then there are good chances of having normal fertility. She has to be on regular follow up to ensure that tumour is not relapsing.

Hello sir, now a days we all fear about cancer. It's really unpleasant term. If chest pain or heart disease is going regularly then is it cause for cancer? Chest pain means cancer? If I don't smoke or drinks.

Cancer is curable. You have to provide details of the organ which is having cancer. After confirmation and staging of cancer proper treatment can be planned. Primary treatment depends on site of origin and extent of disease.

How far Radio Therapy is safe to cure cancer. Radiation will effect on DNA. Will the existing or new cancers raise again by giving radiation?

MBBS, MD, CCEPC, FISSP, OBS, NFPM
Oncologist, Delhi
Radiation treatment may have many side effects. Only necessary radiation should be taken. Stage 3 or 4 cancer can not be treated with chemo or radiation, only cancer progression can be delayed in some cases and thst to be only if patient has taken pain management treatment with MIPI. You can further discuss it in detail with me on phone or over lybrate.

Could you please suggest weather radiology is best or chemotherapy for treatment of cancer.

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist, Mandsaur
Radiotherapy & chemotherapy are two ways to treat cancer. Few cancers are more sensitive to radiotherapy while others are radio resistant. Same way few are chemotherapy resistant while other cancers are chemo sensitive. So it depends on nature of cancer and accordingly it is decided to treat cancer by chemotherapy, radiotherapy or by both modalities. Nothing like which modality is better, in few cancer radiotherapy is good while in others chemotherapy is better.

She has diagnosed of breast cancer going through chemo for the first time after chemo she got lung infection and after 18 days got infection of herpes that caused delay in the second chemotherapy please recommend some diet as per her condition we are giving her wheatgrass guide soya milk and a type of kadha made by the leaves of ramphal along with medicines. Also describe why she got infected again an again.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Patan
As she has been started on chemotherapy, her immunity will come down. Means her body's power to fight against infection is down thats why she is getting recurrent infection. But no need to worry, just give her nutritious food and treat the infections accordingly.
