What was the surgery done 2yrs ago. If a currettage was done there is a chance of recurrence. Get an OPG done to confirm recurrence If it is a recurrence then you should go for resection of the jaw bone with reconstruction. this will be a permanent cure.

Dear mam, if you suffer from cervical cancer, don't worry, it's a curable disease. Please get yourself examined and staged by oncologist and according to stage they will provide treatment like in very early stage it could be surgery and in little advanced stages it would be chemo-radiation therapy. Both are good options and curable to great extent. Do not run away from treatment as the chances of cure reduce as the stage is increased.

Yes, inheritance is not the only cause for cancer. One may develop cancer arising from a lot of causes, like smoking, alcohol, viral infections etc. So you may still be having a chance of developing cancer as for an average Indian male

Hi, This is regarding my dad. He is a patient who was having maxillary cancer. His left jaw has been removed completely and operated multiple times. Now his mouth opening is very limited with no denture. Now currently he is cancer free but has tooth pain and his lower tooth has cavity in it. Due to the limited opening the Oncologist he visits said nothing can be done for the tooth. Would you know a way to help him with the pain and suggesting a solution?

Has he received radiation therapy as well? he can go for mouth opening exercise and physiotherapy. Prosthesis are available to help him with or simply with icecream spoons making a stack and try inserting in mouth. Dental surgeons can try opening it under anaesthesia if some procedure needs to be done. Please get opg or ct scan done t to check for the reasons for pain.

Modern treatment has resulted in great improvement in cure for breast cancer. First disease should be confirmed with core biopsy, mammography and staged as per clinical indications. Surgery is mainstay of treatment for localized disease. Preop or postop chemotherapy is given as per indications. Adjuvant radiation and hormone therapy is decided based on histopathology report. Treatment should be started earlist possible.

It could be any number of causes from simple infection to tb to any cancer. (though cancer would be the last option.) in india, tb is much more common. Please show it to a surgeon. He may start you on antibiotics if simple infection is suspected or take a biopsy or remove the whole node for pathology examination and that will help plan further treatment if other diseases are suspected.

Dear sir, cancer is a disease which is related to both our lifestyle, environmental factors or genetic. There are things that we can control, but many things like cosmic radiation, environmental factors, increasing pollution, lots of chemicals in food as preservatives or to increase its growth etc are beyond individual control and needs whole society to take steps to prevent this. Genetic factors are beyond our control, only thing we can do is to identify faulty gene and go for preventing measures. Since the exact cause of cancer is not understood completely, it is advisable to go for regular health screening for early diagnosis and get it treated timely for potential cure.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking clarification. Well,'hukkah' smoking is no less dangerous than smoking cigarettes. It is in one's best interest that one quits smoking'hukkah' at the earliest. The hazards of smoking are many, with cancer being one of them. Hope this clarifies. Do take care, and all the very best sincerely,
