Hi, cancer is a genetic disease. And this is a bottom line. Around half of cancer occur without obvious reason. Half of them have a contributory factors like, smoking, tobacco consumption, high fat diet, unhealthy life style, and so on. Around 7 - 10 % patients have hereditary cause (parents or their relatives had cancer). Prevention is of paramount importance. Adapt healthy life style. Avoid tobacco consumption in any form. Regular health checkup is essential for early detection. For further query please consult on private chat.

breast cancer most often present as painless lump which gradually starts increasing in size , can be detected by regular self examination of breast and annual mammography after the age of forty. regular self examination of breast with flat of hands five days after the periods are over are the best method for screening I think as it is inexpensive easy and does not involve any risk of radiation exposure. if you find any abnormal lump see a doctor for clinical examination and further tests as needed.,

This may happen due to hormonal changes. Homoeopathy has good treatment for your problem without adverse effects. The medicine acts internally and gradually the lump will be dissolved. Take homoeopathic medicine phytolacca 200 once daily for 10 days.

All about Neuroblastoma

European Society for Medical Oncology certification, DM - Oncology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS
Oncologist
Ask Free Question
Most commonly occurring in children aged 5 or younger, Neuroblastoma is a type of cancer developing from immature nerve cells most often found in and around the adrenal glands. However, it is not limited and can develop in several other areas of the body, like the chest, neck, spine and different areas of the abdomen where nerve cells can be found in clusters.

Symptoms
Depending upon the area of the body affected, signs and symptoms may include:

1. Neuroblastoma in the abdomen-
a) Abdominal pain
b) Diarrhea, constipation or other changes in bowel movements
c) A lump of mass under the skin which is anything but tender

2. Neuroblastoma in the chest-
a) Chest pain
b) Wheezing
c) Visible changes in the eyes, such as drooping eyelids or unequal pupil size

3. There are other signs and symptoms caused by neuroblastoma. These may include:
a) Lumps of tissue found under the skin
b) Bruise-like dark circles visible around the eyes
c) Fever
d) Proptosis (a condition in which eyeballs seem to protrude from the sockets)
e) Back pain
f) Bone pain
g) Unexplained weight loss

Causes
Neuroblastoma typically originates in neuroblasts. These are immature nerve cells formed by the fetus as part of the development process. Eventually, neuroblasts convert into fibres and nerve cells which then make up the constituents of the adrenal gland. Normally, they either mature or gradually disappear. Others, which neither mature nor disappear, form tumors.

Complications
A number of problems may result out of neuroblastoma, including:
1. Metastasis or spread of the cancerous cells
2. Spinal cord compression
3. Paraneoplastic symptoms, such as rapid eye movement or difficulty with eye coordination
4. Abdominal swelling
5. Diarrhea

Treatment
Depending on the child's age, the stage of the cancer, or the types of cells involved, the treatment plan varies accordingly:
1. Surgery - However, this depends on the size and location of the tumor. Tumors growing near vital organs are too risky to remove
2. Chemotherapy - involves the use of chemotherapy drugs
3. Radiation therapy - involves high energy beams, like X-rays
4. Stem cell transplant or autologous stem cell transplant in case of high-risk neuroblastoma
5. Immunotherapy - involves drugs which stimulate the immune system to destroy cancerous cells

What are the symptoms of skin cancer. If a person suffer from the skin cancer. How can he will be safe from the skin cancer and what is the limit of the skin cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist
Ask Free Question
Skin cancers present as ulceration or growth over skin, pigmentation or mole which starts increasing suddenly, lymph node enlargement or swelling etc. Since skin is external organ most problems are identified easily unless ignored. One of the risk factors is ultraviolet radiation exposure, one should avoid too much exposure and use sunscreen. Black skin people are naturally protected due to pigment melanin in our skin. Limit use of chemicals over skin directly and any ulceration or infection should be promptly treated.

It could be residual collection with added inflammation. Try taking some antibiotic and anti inflammatory medication for few days. If it subsides then there is nothing to worry. If it does not then you should have yourself examined by a surgeon.

Cervical Cancer Vaccine- What to Know About It

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist
Ask Free Question
Some forms of cancer, such as cervical cancer can be prevented by vaccines. Cervical cancer is the second most common form of cancer that affects women. The vaccine that prevents cervical cancer is known as the human papilloma virus(HPV) vaccination. Let's take a look at a few things you should know about this vaccination.

What is HPV?
There are over a hundred types of HPV. While some of them affect the genital area and can cause abnormal tissue growth that leads to cervical cancer others can cause anal cancer, genital warts, skin warts, cancer of the head and neck and vaginal cancer.

When should you have the vaccination?
The human papillomavirus or HPV vaccination is most effective when administered to preteen and teenage girls. This vaccine protects them for the next ten years against the disease. One of the reasons, the HPV vaccination is given so early is that the virus can spread easily by sexual activity. Having the vaccination early can protect them from a HPV infection. The vaccine is also said to be more effective when given to girls who have not yet been infected by a strain of HPV.

How is the vaccination given?
The HPV vaccination is given in the form of three injections spread over six months. The second dose is given two months after the first dose and the final dose is administered six months after the first dose. There is more than one name for the HPV vaccination. Gardasil and cervarix are the most common amongst these. Many doctors suggest no matter which one you choose, the same vaccination be used for all three doses.

How effective is the vaccination?
Along with protecting against cervical cancer, the HPV vaccine also protects women against vaginal, anal and oropharynx cancer. Some of the vaccines also protect against genital warts. However, the vaccination cannot be used to treat existing HPV infections and is less effective when given to women who have already been infected with a strain of the virus.

Is there anyone who should not have this vaccine?
The HPV vaccine is not recommended for pregnant women. Do not have the vaccination if you are already suffering from a severe illness. The vaccination is also not recommended for women who are allergic to yeast or latex.

What are the side effects of the HPV vaccination?
The HPV vaccination has minor side effects that may include mild soreness at the injection site, a headache or low fever. Some women may also feel dizzy or faint after the injection. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain are some of the other side effects associated with this vaccination. Apart from taking a dose of vaccine, it is important that you go for regular full body check up as well, to prevent yourself from various ailments.

Dear sir, It is possible to obtain long term cure if diagnosed and treated timely. True that genetic mutations can not be reversed But you can have long term cure by controlling the symptoms and sometimes inhibitory genes gets activated to check the growth of cancer. Now the treatment is available that treats at gene levels in a targeted way.
