What are the symptoms of mouth cancer what types of precautions and medicine should be taken?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
mouth cancer may present with premalignant or precancerous conditions like white patch or leukoplakia, reddish patch, difficulty in opening mouth or submucosal fibrosis. these are warning signs for mouth cancers.frank cancers may present as nonhealing ulcers, growth lesions, bleeding from oral cavity, difficulty in swallowing or eating food etc. most common risk factor is chewing tobacco or zarda. even chewing supari which is kept for long time in mouth may irritate soft mucosa of mouth and lead to cancerous growth. any sharp tooth or ill fitting dentures should be treated by dentists. one should eat lots of fruits and vegetables, natural sources of antioxidants and lycopene to prevent cancer and if one suffers from it then it should be treated by surgery, chemotherapy radiation therapy as indicated.

My girlfriend had a severe pain in her left breast just upper left side of the nipple 1 year and 4 months ago. She consulted a doctor 4 months later. The doctor said that it may be a tumour and if not treated it could turn into a tumour and later breast cancer. So the doctor gave him some allopathic medicines and told that it would work and control the tumour. The doctor also suggested her mother to tie the knot as soon as possible. After marriage she will overcome this problem. But marriage is not happened. She took the medicine for 4 months. She got relief. But now 1 year later she got the pain again and severe pain. The tumour is hard and painful. It takes the size of a 5 rupees vaseline jar. Today the cold is enough and she has a lot of pain. Does it relate to her period?

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your girlfriend. Well, did she undergo any diagnostics including a mammography / biopsy? What do the diagnostics say? Should it be a fibroadenoma, it is advisable to get it removed before it causes other complications down the line. I would advise that you consult a breast oncologist this time for a second expert opinion, and deal promptly as the situation demands. For the time being, should the pain be unbearable, she may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate pain. She needs to stay well hydrated, and take 'Amla Churna' (Patanjali) & 'Bael Churna (Patanjali- 1/2 tsp each with warm water, preferably before lunch daily for next 1 month. Simultaneously, keep her diet and lifestyle streamlined, she can take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, once daily. Her doc shall be able to advise further on, in particular, once he/ she gets to clinically examine her in person once more. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely

Hi sir/mam I found breast lump in left breast 8 months back but there is no swelling discharge or any symptoms but pain at time of menses that's it I saw in some articles all breast lumps are not cause cancer please give me suggestion it cause any severe condition in future what precautions I should take my age is 22.

BHMS, M.D.
Homeopath, Chandrapur
Hello Lybrate user, yes, all breast lump are not cancerous. The breast lump you have mentioned, is probably fibroadenoma, it is a benign tumor (non cancerous mass/tumor), most commonly found in women under the age of 30. Causes is unknown, although it may be due to hormone oestrogen. It is non tender (no pain on touch), motile under skin, and regular in shape (shape and edges can be felt by touch). Fibroadenoma often have tendency to reoccur even after surgically removed. L would like to suggest to visit gynaecologist, for physical examination and to confirm the diagnosis. Try homeopathic treatment, it is safe, natural and holistic way of treatment. Natural homeopathic medicines like calcerea, thuja, sep, etc.; are highly effective in naturally reducing the Benign lumps. Homeopathic medicine is selected on the basis of thorough details of patient, like medical history, causes, routine, temperament etc.; such well selected medicine gives complete cure and stops the reoccurring tendency of complaint. Message back for online consultation.

Colposcopy and Cervical Biopsy - Procedure that is Followed

DGO , MBBS
Gynaecologist, Pune
Colposcopy and Cervical Biopsy - Procedure that is Followed

Colposcopy is a procedure that is used to get a closer view of a women’s cervix, vagina and vulva. It is a procedure carried on to detect the presence of any abnormal cells on the cervix and nearby areas. 

Why is Colposcopy done?
This procedure is carried out to see the problems in the vagina and cervix which may otherwise be not visible with a naked eye. A colposcopy is done when the Pap test results are abnormal. These abnormalities could be due to several reasons like viral infections namely human papillomavirus (HPV) infection or any other fungal (yeast), bacterial or protozoan (Trichomonas) infection. Atrophic vaginitis or natural cervical changes due to menopause can also lead to abnormal Pap test results. However one needs to be careful because these untreated cervical cell changes that lead to abnormal Pap tests can at times develop into precancerous or cancerous changes.

Cervical Biopsy
In case during colposcopy, an abnormal tissue is found in the problem areas, the doctor will remove a tiny sample of it and send it to the lab. This is normally known as a biopsy or cervical biopsy which is done from inside the opening of the cervix or endocervical canal.
 

Procedure for a colposcopy and biopsy
A colposcopy is normally a pain free procedure where at times some women might feel a slight tingling or burning sensation when the solution is applied. Biopsy might lead to a little discomfort like that of a sharp pinch or a menstrual cramp. During colposcopy a speculum or a small instrument is inserted into the vagina to spread apart the vaginal walls. In order to see the area more clearly the doctor dabs the cervix or vagina with a cotton swab dipped in vinegar (acetic acid) or Iodine (Lugol's solution). The solution is used to remove any kind of mucus and also makes the abnormal cells turn white in order to be clearly visible.

The doctor then uses a colposcope, a light magnifying device that looks like binoculars and has a bright light mounted to it. It also has a camera attached to it to take the videos or pictures of the cervix and vagina.
Biopsies are normally done by scraping away abnormal cells with a small brush or a small curette.

Results of colposcopy or cervical Biopsy
In case of Normal results the vinegar or iodine will not show the presence of any abnormal cells and the vagina and cervix look normal. But in case of abnormal results, there are abnormal tissues seen in the problem areas. It could also be a sore or a genital wart or infection in and around the vagina. The biopsy report would clarify whether it is cervical cancer or is likely to develop. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

Can I continue to use complementary therapies, take herbal remedies or vitamin supplements when I'm on chemotherapy? Can I do sports when I’m on chemotherapy? Can I drink alcohol when I’m on chemotherapy? Can I eat what I want when I’m on chemotherapy? Can I follow an anti-cancer diet whilst receiving chemotherapy? Can I go on holiday abroad when I’m on chemotherapy? Can I have sex when I’m on chemotherapy? Can I smoke when I’m on chemotherapy? How will I know if the chemotherapy is working? If I can’t work, is there any financial support that I can get?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
You can take vitamin supplements but I do not advocate any kind of alternative therapies while on chemotherapy. You can take part in sports but be careful not to over exert and not to get exposed to injury and infection. Indoor games would be ideal. Do not use alcohol and tobacco while on chemotherapy, as mucositis may worsen apart from developing resistance to therapy. While on chemotherapy we restrict certain food which may harbour infection, so you must avoid. You can take freshly cooked home made healthy food. Traveling abroad may depend on your chemotherapy schedule, if it permits then you may but please take travelling insurance while you go abroad for any emergencies. You can have sex but using contraceptive, preferably barrier methods. Chemotherapy response will be assessed during its course by your oncologist. There is no specific provision or legal boundation that you must be supported financially, it depends on your company policy.

My grandmother is suffering from breast cancer. Is there is medicine without chemo?

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Hello. Whether a patient receives chemotherapy or not in case of breast cancer will totally depend on the stage of disease at presentation to the doctor. If your doctor has prescribed chemotherapy, there are very good chances that it is mandatory. There are very few but well identified instances when chemotherapy is either not required or can be avoided safely or avoided in view of risk of side effects being more possible than the benefit. Other than stage, the things that influence this decision, are age, any other diseases like diabetes or high blood pressure, etc. The biology of cancer e. G. If er, pr positive disease and whether the disease has already spread but not causing any functional harm. Such a decision has to be taken by a well learned and well experienced doctor, along with an informed decision. From patient. I can guide more only with more of patients details.

PREVENTING CANCER WITH NUTRITION and LIFESTYLE CHANGE

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
PREVENTING CANCER WITH NUTRITION and LIFESTYLE CHANGE

GOOD LIFESTYLE CAN SHRINK TUMORS & COMBAT CANCER.

We exactly do not know what causes Cancer & but there are various organizations that are working hard to continuously review and assess the body of evidence on diet, physical activity and cancer.

The 2007 report by WCRF/AICR International state 10 point recommendation for prevention of Cancer.

AICR RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CANCER PREVENTION:

1. Be as lean as possible without becoming underweight.

2. Be physically active for at least 30 minutes every day.

3. Avoid sugary drinks. Limit consumption of energy-dense foods (particularly processed foods high in sugar, or low in fiber, or high in fat).

4. Eat more of a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes, such as beans.

 5. Limit consumption of red meats, such as beef, pork and lamb, and avoid processed meats.

6. If consumed at all, limit alcoholic drinks to 2 for men and 1 for women a day.

7. Limit consumption of salty foods and foods processed with salt (sodium).

8. Don’t use supplements to protect against cancer. Special Population Recommendations

9. It’s best for mothers to breastfeed exclusively for six months and then add other liquids and foods.

10. After treatment, cancer survivors should follow the recommendations for cancer prevention. And always remember – do not smoke or chew tobacco

RULE OF THUMB FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

Use these tips to make more walking part of your day:

• Start parking at the perimeter of the lot or two blocks away if you’re using street parking, instead of trying to get as close as possible to your destination.

• If you take public transportation, get off the train or bus when you are a stop away.

• Take the stairs instead of the elevator. If you’re heading for the 20th floor, walk up a few flights and then catch the elevator.

• Recruit a partner for after-lunch walks.

• Go for a 30-minute walk every day, or two 15-minute walks: one each morning and one each evening. These changes may mean you have to leave the house 15 or 20 minutes earlier.

 The goal is lifelong health, so reset your alarm. On weekends, walk when doing your errands or to other destinations like museums or movies.

Pain can be due to many reasons. If it is in only one breast then you should see a surgeon. Before that you do self examination of the breast and look for any lump. It is not due to cancer usually.

Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. When did you finish your chemo radiation cycles? assuming that you are getting intense pain in throat, at present, I shall only advise you to gargle with a warm solution of chamomile tea, lemon and honey, three times daily. Along with, you can also try warm saline gargling, with a pinch of fresh turmeric/ salt added to warm water. Do try hot steam inhalation (only) a couple of times daily and use a good humidifier in the bed room. However, I may be able to help you feel better still, if I get to know as to where exactly you stand today with respect to your cancer treatment.

What is the main cause of cancer or tumor? Do we really know the causative agent for cancer?

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
Genetic changes that cause cancer can be inherited from our parents. They can also arise during a person’s lifetime as a result of errors that occur as cells divide or because of damage to DNA caused by certain environmental exposures. Cancer-causing environmental exposures include substances, such as the chemicals in tobacco smoke, and radiation, such as ultraviolet rays from the sun.
