How can I identify blood cancer? What are the controlling measures to prevent this?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Blood cancer is caused by abnormal growth of one of the component of blood causing suppression of others. Hence leading to symptoms like prolonged fever, anaemia, bleeding, bone pains. Etc. There is no specific prevention except for to save from known carcinogens and undue exposure to radiation. Routine blood check up helps in identifying it.

About the cancer What kind of treatments are available Cancer How to connect best treatment hospitals.

MBBS, MS- Surgery , M.Ch - Surgical Oncology , FIAGES
Oncologist, Delhi
Types of cancer treatment: cancer treatment is now a multidisciplinary management in which different surgical, medical and radiation oncologist plan treatment protocol for best possible chances of cure. Advancement in all these fields and their contribution in comprehensive management results in 25-30% improvement in cure rate over previous decades. Surgery: involves surgical principles to remove tumor with adequate margins and possible draining lymph nodes regions. Improvements and understanding of surgical principles even make resection of distant disease or cure of stage iv disease in some selected cases. Chemotherapy: cytotoxic drugs are given either in injectable or oral forms which acts on uncontrolled cancer cells. Advances in this fields results in drugs with better efficacy and less side effect profile and at same time resulting in better cancer control. Targetted therapy acts on specific pathways of cancer growth. Hormone therapy targets specific hormone receptors for controlling the cancer. Radiation therapy: is delivery of radiation generated by radioactive source over the region of cancer. More and more advances in radiation technologists are emerging like imrt, sbrt to focus radiation over the specific location so as to avoid toxic effect over surrounding area.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer may affect any and every organ of the body. Breast nodules or lumps are the usual presentation in males and need to be evaluated by clinical examination and biopsy. Males cancers are easily picked as they are superficial and easily identified by simple self examination.

I don't want to loose my dad so soon we need him pls!

BHMS
Homeopath,
See no one can predict the time how many days he will survive. Second thing cancer is not curable disease. So only we can increase the life of patient with surgery chemo n radio with supportive care. So whatever oncologist n oncosurgeon tell you go with them have a faith in them. Chemo is used for killing the cells m radio is used for killing the metas.

Signs of Gynecological Cancer

MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Signs of Gynecological Cancer

Being diagnosed with cancer is something no one looks forward to and Gynaecological Cancer is every woman’s worst nightmare. However, if diagnosed in time, it can be treated. Cancer in any part of a woman’s reproductive system is termed as gynecological cancer. It is of five types:

  1. Cervical cancer

  2. Ovarian cancer

  3. Vaginal cancer

  4. Vulvar cancer and

  5. Uterine cancer

Paying attention to your body and understanding its natural rhythm can help you recognize signs of gynecological cancer. This is because signs of gynecological cancer can be difficult to identify unless you know your body. Here are a five signs to watch out for-

  1. Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding: Bleeding in between periods is okay once in a while but if it happens continuously over a period of 2 to 3 months, do not ignore it. Vaginal bleeding after menopause should also never be ignored. Abnormal bleeding could be triggered by a number of conditions including cancer of the lining of the uterus. Sudden changes in your menstrual blood that persist for over 2 cycles such as heavy bleeding can also be a symptom of uterine cancer. Heavy bleeding can be defined as a period that lasts for over 7 days.

  2. Changes in the Vulva: Any change in colour of development of bumps, sores of thickened skin should be immediately shown to a gynecologist. Any form of vulvar itching or burning should also not be ignored. These conditions could be symptoms of vulvar cancer. Hence, it is important to know what your vulva looks like normally.

  3. Bloating: Persistent bloating that lasts for over a fortnight can be a sign of ovarian cancer. This is especially true in cases of bloating accompanied by sudden weight loss or between-period bleeding.

  4. Change in Bathroom Habits: Due to the proximity of the bladder to the reproductive organs, a tumour or swelling in the reproductive organs can trigger symptoms similar to those of a urinary tract infection. This includes pain while urinating, difficulty passing urine, diarrhea or constipation. Urinary incontinence could also a sign of gynecological cancer.

  5. Abdominal or Back Pain: In rare cases, lower back pain could be a sign of ovarian cancer or uterine cancer. Pain in the lower abdomen or pelvic area can also be a sign of ovarian cancer.

The above could also be signs of other health disorders. The only way of knowing for sure is by consulting a doctor. Hence, understand your body and if you notice any of these symptoms consult your gynecologist at the earliest.
