Half of them have a contributory factors like, smoking, tobacco consumption, high fat diet, unhealthy life style, viral infections and so on.

I am 55 years. Go urination every hour at night. No diabetes, or prostate problem.
Usually nocturnal frequency of urine is due to enlargement of prostate. You get sonography for the same. And also give urine for complete evaluation.

Hello lybrate-user, I understand that it is very tough to convince parents for leaving this bad habit. However, you can show my answer to him to further convince him. In my clinical practice, I have seen a lot of patients suffering from oral cancer who had addiction to tobacco. Chewing tobacco is definitely really bad for health. It can cause cancer too. It is a very poor addiction which will damage oral health. The teeth will be stained making the look ugly and the mouth will be full of non healing ulcers if he doesn't give up this bad habit. Its my strong request to persuade your father to stop chewing tobacco. If he feels difficult to abstain, I can prescribe some medicines for same. However, will power is most important for leaving this bad habit.

Is there any permanent solution for blood cancer what are the lowest expense treatment now available in india? Is it possible full recovery in one year what are the simtames of blood cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
dear sir, blood cancers are treated by chemotherapy followed by bone marrow transplantation. cost of treatment depends on the set up. In government hospitals and regional cancer centres subsidized or free treatment is available. There are many NGOs assisting in treatment they not only help financially but also help in rehabilitation. duration of treatment will depend on the type of blood cancer and the response to initial therapy.

Mr. sachin was suffering from stage 2 Head and neck cancer. He had undergone surgery in october month. After that radiation and chemotherapy is completed. But he is suffering from mouth opeopening issues. Physiotherapist have suggested some exercises but due to these exercises he is getting inflammation in neck and mouth region. Is the inflammation is normal? Any alternative option to get the mouth opening.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
You can use stack of icecream sticks tied together with rubber band and place in the mouth. And repeat this several times in a day. You can start with the number of spoons he is comfortable with and then gradually increase the number. There are mouth opening prosthesis available. You can ask him to inflate balloons to break adhesions in the mouth.

Dear mam, loss of appetite and taste due to treatment like chemotherapy and radiation therapy is normal side effect and is temporary. She will regain it after the treatment is over.

You can give packed juices, porridge, vegetable soups, buttermilk, oats, whole grain chats, different types of kheers etc. Any comments morbidity or any specific restrictions by your doctor then you should follow them according to type of disease. You can give her appetiser to stimulate appetite.

Well in plain terms the answer is no. The treatment you r undergoing is mainly meant to slow down the growth or progress of your cancer but not cure it. You haven't undergone any curative procedure like radical prostatectomy. So cancer still stays and it will spread with time. Anyways you should consult your urosurgeon. You may undergo radiotherapy as it may help in bone mets.

Sorry to say but you doctors didn't get what I was asking. I am surprised not even a single doctor read question carefully. I only asked home medicine for lycoriya. BrEast and pain and all was symptoms. Every doctor who gave answer was centered on breast enlarge.

FMAS, MS
General Surgeon, Gandhinagar
Cleanliness and drying of area, treatment of anemia and vit a def, stress releaving exercise, pranayam and meditation. Specific treatment includes galo powder + katho powder + haldi powder equal part. 2 tsf bd with honey. Sitting in neem water for 5 minutes or vaginal douse with neem water. Local application of gv is sufficient in case of curd like discharge. Neem water can lead to sterility if used for prolonged period in months. Natural diet like fruits and vegetables - amla - will help. Freez water and cold drinks to be avoided. Cotton cloths will provide air circulation for necessary dry ness. More can be done with help of history and diagnosis. Respected jasvir hope this will help you out in best ways for leucorrhoea. Thanks regards hope for your early & best recovery.
