Hi . It is believed that prostate enlargement in many men continues till end of life. It is therefore recommended that you continue your medications to reduce the rate of this growth. You can also discuss this with your urologist and if your prostate enlargement is very little and you have no urinary symptoms then he/she can take the decision of tapering your dose or stopping it altogether to observe for some time.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. As I understand, your mother has undergone a radical mastectomy, right breast. Was the axillary lymph node dissected too as a part of the surgery? I hope that she is recovering well now. Nevertheless, adherence to a mediterranean diet is highly recommended now. Emphatically, try eating a low fat diet, fibre rich foods including whole grain cereals, green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits and maintain an ideal body weight. Steamed fresh water fish prepared with extra virgin olive oil should be included in the diet plan too. Apart from the above-mentioned, a proper & active lifestyle with due focus on de-stressing, exercises & relaxation, and a long term hormone therapy as contextually appropriate can help reduce the risk of a relapse. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.

Tamoxifen is known to have a small risk of uterus cancer (endometrial cancer) and not cervical cancer. That's why you need to follow up with regular pelvic scans. But if she is post menopause she can be given different medicines. Can contact oncologist for details.

Kindly perform a Pregnancy test with the Pregnancy kit that is available at any nearest medical shop. The safe period for avoiding pregnancy is usually on the Day 1 to 7 at the start of cycle and the last 4-6 days in a normal 26 to 32 days cycle. You might still be on the safe period, but pregnancy test will confirm the same. Since she is under chemotherapy, she might have difficulties to carry out a normal pregnancy. It is better to give her at least 6 months gap from the last cycle of chemo therapy before getting pregnant. Do perform the test at the earliest.

Blood cancer treatment & therapy options Treatment for blood cancer depends on the type of cancer, your age, how fast the cancer is progressing, where the cancer has spread and other factors. Some common blood cancer treatments include: • Stem cell transplantation: A stem cell transplant infuses healthy blood-forming stem cells into the body. Stem cells can be collected from the bone marrow, circulating (peripheral) blood and umbilical cord blood. • Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is the use of anticancer drugs designed to interfere with and halt the growth of cancer cells in the body. Chemotherapy for blood cancer sometimes consists of giving several drugs together in a set regimen. It may also be given before a stem cell transplant. • Radiation therapy: Radiation therapy may be used to destroy cancer cells or to relieve pain or discomfort. It may also be given before a stem cell transplant.
