People who have blood cancer can have problems with bleeding and serious infections. Seek immediate for symptoms such as uncontrolled bleeding, severe sweating, difficulty breathing, pale or blue lips or fingernails, high fever (greater than 101 degrees Fahrenheit), fast heart rate, confusion, loss or change in level of consciousness, or anxiety.. no measure, cure depends on so many factors. thanks

Adrenal Cancer - What are Its Symptoms

Adrenal Cancer - What are Its Symptoms

Cancer can affect even small glands like the adrenal glands. Adrenal glands are responsible for the production of hormones like cortisol and aldosterone. These glands are located above the kidneys and have two parts; the cortex and the medulla. Adrenal cancer generally affects the cortex of the adrenal glands. This type of cancerous tumour is rare and can be difficult to diagnose.

Most adrenal cancer symptoms are triggered by an excessive production of estrogen and androgen. Symptoms can also be caused by the pressure put on other organs by the tumour. Adrenal cancer symptoms are most easily noticeable in children as this is the stage where the body is changing and developing. Some of these symptoms are:

  1. Facial hair growth
  2. Excessive pubic and underarm hair
  3. An enlarged penis or clitoris
  4. Early onset of puberty in girls
  5. Development of enlarged breasts in boys

Symptoms of adrenal cancer in adults includes:

  1. Excessive weight gain in the abdomen and above the collar bone
  2. High blood pressure
  3. Irregular menstruation
  4. Easy bruising
  5. Depression
  6. Frequent urge to urinate
  7. Muscle cramps

Additionally, men with adrenal cancer that causes excessive estrogen production may notice an enlargement of breast tissue and tenderness in the area. Women suffering from excessive androgen production triggered by adrenal cancer may notice their voice deepening and facial hair growth. In most cases, adrenal cancer symptoms in women do not appear until the tumour presses on other organs. This includes symptoms like pain around the tumor, a feeling of fullness in the abdomen and difficulty eating because of this feeling.

The cause of adrenal cancer has not yet been determined, but conditions such as Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, Li-Fraumeni syndrome, familial adenomatous polyposis and multiple endocrine neoplasia can increase a person’s risk of suffering from this disease. A thorough physical examination and a detailed medical history is required to diagnose this disease. The doctor will also need a blood test and urine test. Additional tests that may be required include:

  1. Biopsy of the tumor
  2. CT scan
  3. MRI scan
  4. PET scan
  5. Adrenal angiography

Adrenal cancer can be cured if diagnosed in its early stages. There are three types of treatment for adrenal cancer; surgery to remove the adrenal gland, chemotherapy and radiation. However, adrenal cancer can recur and hence it is important to schedule and maintain regular check-ups with your doctor.

Now our doctor started chemotherapy without injection (after finishing six cycle of injection chemotherapy) first cycle tablet name capnat (capecitabine tablets ip) during that first two week he not vomited on third week ending onwards he affect with vomiting and his in-taking liquid foods also reduced suddenly. While he going to consultation with our doctor for second cycle he checked blood test and find that blood-hb is drop to 6.75% (before 11.5%) and he advice to admit and trips him with 2 unit of blood hb and he asked my father to take second cycle with entirely changed diseases. The second cycle is started today (27/11/15) but father still vomiting once daily and struggle to take even water because he has heartburn since also. Now our doctor is out of station he return on monday only. So I kindly request you please guide me with the precaution measure and kindly explain me about the vomiting and sudden drop of blood hb whether the cancer is spread or not. So I kindly request you replly me as early as possible. Thank you.

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.

Dear sir, please do not ignore this, as it might be a lymph node, see an oncologist or ENT surgeon for biopsy and primary investigations and get it treated. Don't waste time in searching for other options as it is not necessary that you have to undergo operation, get it diagnosed first.

Am I more at risk if my relatives have cancer and What do cancer stages and grades mean?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, approximately 5-7 %cancers are hereditary, so it's not the must that one would suffer but certain cancers have more risk Of being hereditary like breast, ovarian, colon etc. Cancer stage means the size of tumour and it's spread. Grade means howmuch the tumour cells have deviated from the normal cells. Higher the stage or poorer the grade, worse is the prognosis.

I am someone who take least amount of vegetables. And eat a lot of junk food. What could be possibility for me to get affected by cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Vegetables and fruits contain substances that are cancer protective which junk food lacks. There is no conclusive data as to what percentage of people consuming junk food would definitely have cancer but but there is no harm in avoiding it and you can try variations with your routine healthy food to make it delicious and colorful, with fruits you can try various puddings, fruit cream, custards, with vegetables nice rolls, soups sandwiches etc. Sedentary lifestyle, fatty food are known to be risk factors for cancer.

What are the symptoms of breast cancer and what is the treatment of it and how to take precaution.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
Breast cancer may present as a painless lump in the breast or armpit, bloody discharge from nipple or any recent onset change in the breast skin or nipple. In advanced stages it may also present as bony pain or backache, or breathlessness or headache. The earlier it is detected, the easier it is to treat it and the more effective the treatment is. The only precaution you need to take is to be aware about breast cancer and to routine regular self breast examination and annual clinical breast examination by a doctor. Also one you are 40, you need to get 1-2 yearly screening mammography done, regularly.

I underwent Orchidectomy Surgery and PSA steadily came down to 8 in 3 Months, 3 in 6 months, 2. in 9 months and 1.2 in ONE YEAR. Am I Cancer FREE or Cancer Cured or Cancer Controlled? What Further should I do to Prevent it from Recurrence?

MD - Radiothrapy

No , if you have underwent orchidectomy only then its incomplete treatment in your case . Also i would like to know what was the Gleason score and was there any bone scan abnormality. You should start taking Tab Bicalutamide 50 mg OD and also get a PSMA scan done.

DNB, MBBS

No not all types of tumour are cancerous, it may be benign. It is not related to age as cancer can affect any age group, even small babies can suffer from cancers. Cancer in early stages are usually pain less but in advance stages or if involving nerves then it may become painful.
