Inverted papilloma ESA surgery done on 16/12/2017  but after surgery_and biopsy report came. It said carcinoma cell found grade_2. I want to get recommendations further to do radiotherapy or what else. Or the conditions of mine now.

MD (Radiation Oncology), DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Noida
Inverted Papilloma can bear cancer in 10 percent cases and that's why full clearance is needed regardless. For your case we need to evaluate the extent of residual disease by mri. It has to be correlated with the extent of Papilloma in the beginning. Depending upon the extent of the residual cancer and also the extent of resection WRT the baseline extent, we will advice for either radiation therapy or craniofacial resection. You need to consult.

Hi I am 25 years old girl and I have a big lump in my right breast. It pain once in 10-15 days for 2-3 min automatically and than get painless also. Please suggest is this causing cancer? What are the chances and what should I need to do? It is in breast from last 3 years.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Ghaziabad
Going by the history of lump, pain in breast and your age the chances of lump being a Benign lump (non cancer type) is more but there is no way to predict with surety that the lump is not of a cancer. Usual signs of a lump of cancer are - rapid increase in the size of the lump, skin getting fixed or adhering to the lump, presence of a hard lump, Irregular shape, lump not moving freely inside the breast. Presence of any lump in breast should be considered a warning sign and should be shown to a Surgeon as early as possible. Ideally a clinical examination by surgeon, an Ultrasound of breast and a Biopsy/FNAC from the breast lump will have more than 99% chance of identifying a Cancer lump.

Can enlarged prostate be cured with medication. What are its side effects. How it can be cured.
Mr. lybrate-user. Medicines can improve the urinary symptoms for long time and if it fails then go for surgery. Medicines have minimal side effects but surge has its complications.

Am 23years boy and I am a weekly smoker but I afraid of the cancer so please suggest to prevent it and also to stop smoking.

Dear lybrate-user, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

Hi, I am 31 years old. Under my arms small round balls on bothside its lymphoma they are increasing the size of it. What remedies do you suggests to prevent from it ?

DNB (ENT), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
Hi . These lymph nodes need to be evaluated. If it is indeed a lymphoma and if that has been diagnosed for you before then that is a very serious condition and it cannot be prevented. These nodes will need to be surgically removed along with other medications.

Get your serum prolactin levels done ,raised prolactin levels cause milk secretion, If your prolactin is raised then you will need medication. Few medicines also cause milk secretion.

Specific foods known to benefit the prostate include: Salmon: Salmon is rich in healthy fats that contain omega-3 fatty acids, which help prevent and reduce inflammation within the body. Other cold-water fish, such as sardines and trout, are also rich in these types of fats.

Treating Skin Cancer with Photodynamic Therapy

Treating Skin Cancer with Photodynamic Therapy

Photodynamic therapy or PDT is a relatively new and non-invasive treatment for non melanomaskin cancer. It is mostly used in cases where the cancer is superficial and has not spread too deep. PDT is used mostly to treat Actinic Keratoses on the face and scalp, Basal cell carcinomas, Bowen’s disease, as well as other conditions such as head and neck, mouth, lung and gullet cancer.

How does it work?
This treatment involves the use of a drug known as photosensitize or a photosensitizing agent with a specific type of light. When the photosensitizing agents get exposed to a light of a specific wavelength, a form of oxygen is produced, which eliminates nearby cancer cells. Every photosensitizer gets activated by the special light. The wavelength of the light determines how much it can penetrate into the body.

Process of Photodynamic therapy
Skin cancer is cured by PDT in several steps. The first step involves the injection of a photosensitizer into the patient’s bloodstream. The blood cells absorb the agent all over the body, but in the cancer cells, it stays for a longer duration. Within 72 hours after the injection is given, the skin is exposed to light. The photosensitizer agent present in the cancer affected cells absorbs the light. An active oxygen form gets produced, which kills the cancer cells.

Other than killing the cancer cells directly, PDT uses two other ways to destroy cancerous tumors. The blood vessels in the tumor are affected, which leads to its death. The immune system also gets charged up and activated for fighting the cancer cells.

The light used for PDT is usually in the form of a laser. LEDs are also used to treat tumors present on the surface of the skin. The primary photosensitizing agent used in PDT is called porfimer sodium or Photofrin.

PDT can be undertaken in the outpatient department in a hospital. After taking the treatment, you have to keep the cancer affected area of the skin dry and covered for 36 hours. The area should be treated with care while showering. In case of thick skin lesions, repeat treatments are required within 4 weeks.

When is PDT used for skin cancer
PDT can be undertaken instead of surgery for treating basal cell cancer, Bowen’s disease and actinic keratosis. PDT is used in cases where surgeries are required. It is used to treat large skin cancers, which are not very deep and in the case when several cancers develop in an area. For many skin conditions, PDT is a better remedy than undergoing a surgery.

Advantages of PDT

  1. There are no long term side effects.
  2. The process is less invasive compared to surgery.
  3. A very short time is taken for this therapy to be undertaken.
  4. The process can be repeated several times in the same area.
  5. Very less scarring takes place in the affected area.
    1. The cost of this procedure is lesser than surgery. 

      If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.
