I am suffering from cancer on abdominal muscle, which was removed by surgery and radiation given on September 2012. Spindle cell sarcoma. Till now, I am under medical review every 6 months, I am afraid whether it will come again. What shall I do to stop re occurrence again.

Well Mr. Lybrate-user. I appreciate you seeking help. As I understand, the prognosis stands better usually in surgeries with clean margins. A clean surgery can, at times, be difficult especially for sarcomas in the abdominal muscle considering proximity of the other abdominal organs, and surgeries in such cases are most likely to be followed by chemotherapy/ radiation as deems appropriate by the oncologist (s). Apart from the above-mentioned, stage and grade of the cancer could also impact the chances of recurrence. Nevertheless, having already gone through the treatment procedure successfully and having already completed over three and a half years of disease free survival, I would only encourage you to stay positive, hopeful and brave as ever. Do see your doc/ oncologists for medical review regularly as advised. Besides the guidelines from your doc (s) which you need to follow strictly, I would advise you to stop tobacco smoking & restrict alcohol consumption, if any. Try maintaining a good health by being physically active, consume healthy/ nutritious diet (preferably mediterranean) with emphasis on plenty of leafy greens and fresh fruits, stay well hydrated, adopt a healthy lifestyle and de-stress regularly. A relaxed and stress free mind is also known to have positive impacts on health. In this connection, I would advise you to practise relaxation techniques like yogasanas (like'savasana'), meditation, listening to soothing music, social interactions, attending or viewing spiritual programmes etc all to stay relaxed and happy. The above-mentioned dietary and lifestyle recommendations may help lower the risks of recurrence or other cancers if not stop it completely. Do take care and I wish you all good health. Sincerely.

I am 33 years old. Currently I am suffering from a breast cancer. I don't have child since last 4 years of marriage. I had taken treatment for it but failed. I have question that after recovering from cancer, Will I be able to take treatment for fertility.

MD - Radiothrapy, MBBS
Oncologist, Pune
As you don't have a child, there is a option of ovum preservation before starting chemotherapy. Many women experience menopause after chemotherapy, most of them start their normal menstrual cycle within 2 years and can have normal babies. Some might have permanent menopause. Recently there are some drugs given during chemotherapy which may reduce the effects of chemotherapy on ovaries and increase chances of pregnancy later on. Please consult Radiation oncologist from your city for further information. Hope this information is helpful.

I have bilateral axillary lymphadenitis since 3 years and it increase in size with age. Now its more discomfort for me while sleeping. It cause intense pain when axilla pressed against bed and pain increases during menses. Also I felt pain in may tail of breast both side. And also my LMP is not one. It fluctuates from the time of menarche. I think menstrual cycle is of 35 days. Now my question is should I operate to remove the swellings or continue medical treatment. Can it recur? Can it become malignant if I do not operate? Is there any complication if I ignored now?

Your symptoms suggest axillary tail of the breast extending in to arm pits. If it is very painful they should be removed. As far as malignancy is concerned they are breast tissue and have the same chance of developing malignancy as the rest of the breast. You should also get fnac done before planning for surgery.

I often have mouth ulcers and that too in large number. Are these the symptoms of mouth cancer?

BDS (GOLD MEDALIST)
Dentist, Jamshedpur
Ulcers usually disappear within few days. If persists longer then you need to be diagnosed properly to rule out the cause. It can be due to poor oral hygiene, digestion problem like constipation, vitamin deficiency. Take care of your oral hygiene by brushing twice daily and rinse your mouth after eating anything. Take zevit tabs once daily for 15 days. Drink plenty of water.

I am a 39 yr old and a mother of 2yr old son. I used to have small lump on my left breast and used to get mild bouts of pain 4-5 years back but it vanished itself after sometime. Now after marriage and childbirth I am getting a feeling that the lump is developing again. On checking I don't find the lump that prominent. However, mild pain is experienced sometimes. Please suggest.

DNB (General Surgery)
General Surgeon, Bangalore
See a surgeon to get the lump examined. Get an ultrasound if breast and maxilla as well. Keep examining the breast once a week itself in front of a mirror. Don't get stressed.

Ms. lybrate-user. Only itching can't tell you about cancer of breast it can be simple some allergic manifestation of skin which can be sort out with treatment. If there is any history of breast cancer in the family then get her examined and get her mammography done. If every thing is normal then forget it.

She definitely does not need to think about death. Hopefully she will live long. Second stage is a very good stage. Positive thinking beats all odds. She should just be regular with her treatment and follow up.

Breast Pain - Understanding the Types and Reasons Behind it

MD
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Breast Pain - Understanding the Types and Reasons Behind it

Breast pain, also known as mastalgia, can be termed as any type of discomfort, pain or tenderness in and around the breast or the underarm region. It can also be accompanied by a sharp pain or a burning sensation.

There are two major types of breast pain

  1. Cyclical Pain: As the name suggests, this type of pain occurs on a cyclic basis and is linked with one’s menstrual cycle. It may happen when one is going through her periods and is influenced by hormonal imbalances. This type of pain is generally not a cause of concern.

  2. Non-Cyclical Pain: This is generally not common and its cause can be linked to a variety of reasons; cancer or a malignant tumour in the breast being the most severe consequence.

Causes of Breast Pain

  1. Lumpy breasts along with soreness and pain can be caused due to fibrocystic breast tissue.

  2. Hormonal imbalance can also lead to pain or discomfort in and around the breast region. Abnormal prolactin limits can also be a contributing factor.

  3. Breast cancer can also lead to pain, mostly in the left breast. Along with the pain, it can also induce a dull ache, tightness or heaviness in the chest.

Treatments for Breast pain

The various treatments for cyclical breast pain include:

  1. Making modifications in the diet

  2. Administering Vitamin E and calcium supplements

  3. Including thyroid hormonal supplements in the diet

  4. Reducing sodium intake in your diet

  5. For non-cyclical breast pain, which is often the cause of cancer, a thorough examination is recommended. A clinical biopsy will be advised if the lumpy tissues make the tumour harder to be detected through a mammogram.

  6. If the pain is on account of an injury, then appropriate painkillers will have to be administered to reduce the pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an oncologist and ask a free question.

Should not be dangerous if you have already got it examined. Keep a watch on it. If it grows in size or changes colour you need to see your doctor.

My mother is suffering from cancer in back and she has pain in her legs but not at the place of cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, if disease is involving vertebrae or pelvis then pain can radiate to back along with the nerves which arise from vertebrae. There can be calcium or vitamin D deficiency that may be the cause. So first let your doctor verify the cause and then she may be treated accordingly.
