Oral cavity cancer can present with a non healing ulcer, bleeding to touch, indurated patch, or neck swelling. Dark lips are usually not a sign of cancer, but see a doctor for best advice.

This type of prostate enlargement isn't thought to be a precursor to prostate cancer. With this condition, the urinary stream may be weak or stop and start. In some cases, it can lead to infection, bladder stones and reduced kidney function. Treatments include medication that relaxes or shrinks the prostate, surgery and minimally invasive surgery.

Hi Dr. Am having fabric in my right breast. And its paining from last 2 days. Is this normal, please suggest.

MBBS, MD - Radiotherapy, DM - Medical Oncology
Oncologist, Hyderabad
Hello Ms. lybrate-user, I presume you are having "fibroid" in the right breast. It could be fibroadenoma or fibroadenosis ,both of which are benign. They may be occasionally painful especially before the monthly menstrual cycle which is normal. They can be managed with medicines and supportive care. They are common benign conditions in women in this age group.

Hi, In my right hand I have a round oval shape tumor, I am not sure what exactly it is but its easily visible, people ask questions when they see it. Its really embarrassing, I have avoided wearing half shirts and T- shirts because of this tumor. I want to get rid of it. What should I do?

Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, we need to know the size, consistency and for how long it is present. If it is long standing then it may not be malignant, an fnac may help in knowing about the cause. It could be lipoma, schwannoma etc benign tumour and can be simply excised by a good surgeon or a plastic surgeon for better cosmetic results. Don't get embarrassed, get it removed.

You need to see a breast surgeon or a surgical oncologist. While breast cysts are usually non cancerous, it is always better to take an expert opinion.

Can Breast Cancer Be Predicted Before It Develops?

Can Breast Cancer Be Predicted Before It Develops?

Medical science constantly challenges the boundaries by finding not only the cures to the most dangerous diseases, but finds a way to prevent them even before they occur. With years of research, practice and data available for analysis, scientists are using advanced technology in combination with years of research to create a predicting mechanism for often fatal diseases like cancer.

Breast cancer screening has always been done with mammography. The fact is that this method is only 75% accurate, laden with false positives and misses a whole set of women totally- and that too when cancer has already developed. Part of the problem comes from the dense breast tissue which one in three women have. This tissue masks the lumps, which makes it difficult for mammograms to accurately screen cancer.

Some breakthrough scientific methods are changing this by drawing on years of research to predict this deadly disease, years before it can manifest itself.

A genetic test to predict cancer 10-11 years ahead of time
This test was performed to see how environmental factors could influence cancer, along with habits like smoking, abusing alcohol or hormones, genetic changes that occur and are put a large percentage of the women at a high risk of developing this disease.

A simple blood test is used for the genetic analysis of hereditary cancer. Researchers found a biological marker, methylation of the ATM gene, which has a very high ability to predict the risk of developing cancer, several years before diagnosis. 'Methylation' concluded that when one biological indicator is exposed to carcinogenic substances, or other abusive substances like tobacco and alcohol, it may trigger the development of cancer. On the flip side, this test will take time to reach the commercial market and even then cannot give an exact timeline as to when someone may develop the disease.

A simple blood test to predict breast cancer 5 years before it develops
This is the kind of medical miracle the world is looking for. Last year in April, researches in Denmark identified a simple blood test that can predict breast cancer five years before it actually develops with an accuracy of a whopping 80%.

It works by "measuring all of the compounds in the blood to build a 'metabolic profile' of an individual, in order to detect changes in the way chemicals are processed, during a pre-cancerous stage," says Laura Donnelly, health editor at The Telegraph, which covered this development. Danish researchers observed 57,000 participants over 20 years, gathering blood samples along the way, specifically comparing a set of 800 women who remained healthy or developed breast cancer within 7 years of their first blood sample. The researchers found they were able to predict, with 80 percent accuracy, which patients would be affected by the disease, just by looking at the metabolic profiles they built from the participants' blood samples. The results have been published in Metabolomics.

Dear lybrate-user, Please do not give much importance to yourself. Other members of your family are there, even if they are poor. Don't give too much importance to thoughts also. Thoughts come in waves and go away. If you can not do this on your own, please take the help of a clinical psychologist. With treatment, you will enjoy life and whatever has been bestowed on you.
