I was having tough cancer I have complete by brachytherapy But after 3 months doctor is tell there something in neck I am doing check up every month almost 9 months completed What should I want to do now.

Oncologist, Gurgaon
Hi lybrate-user, I think you are talking about tongue cancer. If it's early stage and treated by brachytherapy, even then you need 3 monthly follow up to look for any chances of cancer coming back. It's advisable not to consume alcohol and tobacco as they increase the chances of head and neck cancer. All the very beat.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking clarification. Immunotherapy basically aims at improving one's immune system function to fight diseases including cancer. Its otherwise known as biologic therapy and can be classified as either active, passive or hybrid. Stem cell therapy on the other hand, uses stem cells for treatment of diseases including cancer. To exemplify, bone marrow transplant (BMT), allogenic or autologous is essentially a stem cell therapy. Hope this clarifies. Take care. Sincerely

Which doctor is best or which hospital in India is good for cancer treatment, and how to recognize symptoms of any type of cancer? As after radiation treatment a patient gets very weak.

BAMS, MD Ayurveda
Sexologist, Lonavala
There can be several causes for cancer, some of the common reasons include: Damages or mutation in the DNA resulting in the damage to the genes involved in cell division. Genetic predisposition. Carcinogens such as tobacco, asbestos, arsenic, radiation, ultraviolet rays and car exhaust fumes. Cigarette smoking, cigar smoking, passive smoking and tobacco chewing. Alcohol use and obesity Lack of physical activity Sunlight and excessive exposure to ultraviolet light Exposure to radiation from X-rays, gamma rays, cellular phones and cell phone towers. Symptoms Cancer may have many signs and symptoms depending upon the organs it affects or part of the body it has affected. However there are general signs and symptoms that may occur in cancer. Note that the prevalence of these symptoms does not necessarily mean that there is cancer. Unexplained weight loss Fever Fatigue Pain Skin changes (itching, unnatural hair growth, reddened skin, darker skin, etc.) Unusual bleeding Nagging cough Indigestion problems or trouble swallowing. Ayurveda View Treatment of cancer by Ayurveda is very in-depth and holistic in its approach. Ayurveda treats the disease according to the specific nature of the patient, the aggravated body energies involved and the body tissues that are affected.

I will advise quick check up if any of the warning signals stated below, are there to rule out cancer. Early cancer if detected early can be cured and person can lead a normal life. Warning signals are: 1. Chronic cough, 2. A sore that does not heal for a long time. 3. Unusual bleeding from any site of the body. 4. Unusual lump or swelling on any part of the body. 5. Sudden loss of weight or general weakness. 6. Unexplained fever of long duration with night sweats, itching in the body. 7. Dificulty in swallowing solid foods or alternate diarrhoe aand constipation.

Bone Marrow Transplant- Busting the Myths Part 2!

European Society for Medical Oncology certification, DM - Oncology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad

Carrying on from my previous post, another important type of stem cell transplant is known as an autologous transplant, in which the patient's own stem cells are harvested in a manner similar to the harvest of donor cells.

After harvest, the patient is treated with high-dose chemotherapy. Autologous transplant is done mostly in multiple myeloma (standard of care), relapsed high-grade lymphomas (commonly diffuse large b cell) and Hodgkin lymphoma. After high-dose chemotherapy there is an intervening period of low blood counts when the patient is susceptible to infections and bleeding. Support is given in the form of blood, platelet transfusions and antimicrobial drugs. The stem cells start producing blood cells by around day 11 and recovery occurs. The outcome depends on the status of the disease before transplant. Patients in remission prior to transplant do much better in the long term than those with active disease.

Generally speaking, around 50 percent patients with relapsed lymphoma get cured with this approach. Multiple myeloma is a more complex disease and is known to relapse after varying intervals after transplant. Transplant in this scenario improves overall survival and provides freedom from disease for a few years.

Hi Doctor, 2 years back She had brest cancer, it was removed through mastectomy. Later chemotherapy was done. Later, Doctor told to consume Anastrozole of 1 mg every night after dinner. She is consuming it. Problem is every day she'l have Dry cough, nearly 8 to 10 times she coughs continuously, no time constraint for this cough. When we consulted oncology Doc, he told its a side effect of tablet. And told to consume more water! She tried taking cough tablets, consume more water nothing helped. Please suggest me a process (Ayurveda, Homeopathy, English medic etc.) Or a solution (a drug) or any other solution so that her cough gets cured. Thanks,

MD - Radiothrapy, MBBS
Oncologist, Pune
Anastrozole can occasionally cause cough. But other causes of cough should be ruled out like throat infection, blood pressure medicines. Also rarely lung metastasis has to be ruled out. If cough is not decreased then we can shift to to other medicines instead of anastrozole. Presently cough suppressant might help. Please consult physician.

Seek immediate for symptoms such as uncontrolled bleeding, severe sweating, difficulty breathing, pale or blue lips or fingernails, high fever (greater than 101 degrees Fahrenheit), fast heart rate, confusion, loss or change in level of consciousness, or anxiety. The most common symptoms of lung cancer are: A cough that does not go away or gets worse. Chest pain that is often worse with deep breathing, coughing, or laughing. Hoarseness. Weight loss and loss of appetite. Coughing up blood or rust-colored sputum (spit or phlegm) Shortness of breath. Feeling tired or weak. Any unexplained change in the size or shape of the breast Dimpling anywhere on the breast Unexplained swelling of the breast (especially if on one side only) Unexplained shrinkage of the breast (especially if on one side only) Recent asymmetry of the breasts (Although it is common for women to have one breast that is slightly larger than the other, if the onset of asymmetry is recent, it should be checked.) Nipple that is turned slightly inward or inverted Skin of the breast, areola, or nipple that becomes scaly, red, or swollen or may have ridges or pitting resembling the skin of an orange symptoms of brain cancer Poor coordination Drooping eyelid or mouth on one side Difficulty swallowing Difficulty speaking Seeing doubt Poor coordination Drooping eyelid or mouth on one side Difficulty swallowing Difficulty speaking Seeing doubleSpinal cordPain Numbness in part of the body Weakness in the legs or arms Loss of control of the bladder or bowel 9 more rows Myeloma is a cancer that affects cells in the bone marrow, called plasma cells.

This can lead to anaemia, bleeding problems and infections. treatment depends on so many factors and there are so many medicines
