Kindly go to a breast surgeon immediately & have yourself examined. You may need mammography to come to a final diagnosis. Do not delay or ignore it.

My 21 year old sister had a tumour like something in her breast and has undergone with ultrasound of breast and her reports came hyperechoic lesion. What does that mean? And is it serious? What treatment is needed for this!

The exact nature of the tumor cannot be assessed only by a scan. If it is painful it is better to get the tumor removed and send it for biopsy. Only this will give us the exact nature of the tumor. If there is no pain you may keep getting frequent scans to see how the tumor size is growing and act accordingly.

Weight loss and positive biopsy report and with local symptoms are few things considered to be labeled as cancer and tip- I will suggest you to take a shower with warm water or just wash your face, forearms, legs with soap and water at bedtime for a peaceful sleep.

Capcitabine tab cause nausea and vomiting so he must take adequate antiemetics as premedication. Anemia can be due to bleeding from the tumour. Please find out if he is passing black, sticky stool. Chemotherapy also can cause drop all components of blood. Put him on parenteral nutrition for a while so that he is not nutrionally depleted.

Can vitamin and mineral supplements prevent cancer. And will eating red and processed meat give me cancer?

Hi lybrate-user, supplements do have a role in preventing cancers. However, it is always advisable to consult a medical/ alternative medicine practitioner who can assess the need appropriately, and recommend rightly. Eating red meat and processed meat is likely to increase the risks of certain cancers. Therefore, their consumption is best restricted. In the best interest of health, its always better to go for a nutritious and balanced diet (preferably mediterranean) that includes adequate roughage and water. Along with the above-mentioned, a healthy lifestyle with daily exercise, de-stressing, relaxation, psycho-social interaction and a positive mindset goes a long way in keeping this often chronic, dreaded and debilitating disease like cancer at bay or reduce the risk significantly. Hope this clarifies. Take care and all the very best.

Slight amount of alcohol may not harm but the latest guidelines suggest that alcohol is a risk factor not only liver cancers but also breast, git and other malignancy. Quantity is not specified so best to avoid routine consumption as it has addictive tendency and gradually the quantity will increase

I have a white patch inside my lips. But it does not painful I chew tobacco last 2.5 years Does it causes cancer? I am 18 years old. How to treat them.

MD Radiation Oncology, ESMO Certified Medical Oncologist, DM Medical Oncology (Pursuing)

Hello lybrate-user, chewing tobacco is definitely really bad for health. It can cause cancer too. At your young age, you should abstain from such bad habits and even stop your friends from doing so. It is a very poor addiction which will damage your oral health. Your teeth will be stained making you look ugly and your mouth will be full of non healing ulcers if you don't give up this bad habit. Its my strong request to you to stop chewing tobacco. If you feel difficult to abstain, I can prescribe some medicines for same. However, your will power is most important for leaving this bad habit.
