Multiple myeloma is a incurable but treatable disease. Means just like diabetes it can not be cured but we can keep it in control with chemotherapy. Number of chemotherapy cycles depends on type of chemotherapy regimen used and whether bone marrow transplant planned. Prognosis depends on various pathological factors and response to chemotherapy.

Testicular Cancer - Facts You Should Know About It

MD - Oncology
Oncologist

Testicular cancer is mostly witnessed among young adults in the age range of 24 35. It results from the growth of abnormal cells in the testes. It is not the most common type of cancer found in the body, but can pose a serious threat to an individual if not treated early. The cure rate is one of the highest among all kinds of cancer found in the body. This being said, the rate of cure is totally dependent on the stage of detection.

Risk Factors for Testicular Cancer
The historical trend of testicular cancer suggests that white men are prone to this type of cancer than their African, Asian and Latino counterparts. A person with a family history of testicular cancer of HIV is at higher risk of getting this disease. Some other risk factors include Klinefelter s syndrome and cryptorchidism.

Protection from Testicular Cancer
There is no hard and fast rule of protection. It is suggested that the testicles get evaluated while routine medical check-up. A person with a family history of testicular cancer should opt for a periodic checkup after every three months. In case a patient has already recovered from testicular cancer, routine medical tests are a must to ensure non-recurrence.

Symptoms of Testicular Cancer
The common symptom is a swelling in the testicle. It feels like a thickening of the testicle and is mostly painless. Minor discomfort in the swelling region is often reported. Some other symptoms include back pain, ache in the scrotum and groin, change in the size of the testicle, bloating of the lower abdomen and heavy sensation of the scrotum. There is a rare form of this cancer, which produces a female hormone called estrogen in a man s body. This disease results in a lack of sexual desire, lump in the affected area, etc. Even less serious testicular cancer might show these symptoms. An oncologist should be immediately consulted if one or more of these symptoms surfaces.

What are the treatment options?
Testicular cancer is mostly cured with the help of a surgery. A follow-up radiation and chemotherapy is suggested by doctors to destroy the surrounding cells. It is done to ensure that the cancer cells do not spread easily and the chance of recurrence is minimal. The rate of cure depends on early detection.

Does testicular cancer affect sexuality?
In most of the cases, testicular cancer is detected in one testicle. If this is the case, the other testicle produces all the hormones needed for sexual drive. It also does not affect sex drive, beard and muscularity. There is also a large section of patients who reported of a difficult sexual life after the surgery. There can be some discomfort in the scrotum as well.

To lose weight, you have to maintain an input-output ratio. Whatever food you eat contains the input calories which gives you the output calories in the form of energy. If your input calories is too much, you are likely to put on weight. The best way to lose weight is to exercise or spend the additional calories accumulated in your body in the form of fat. The other most important thing is to eat wisely. Try to cut down the excessive calories you are eating and make sure whatever you eat is healthy. Some tips to lose weight - 1. Have more fruits and vegetables than junk food and juices. 2. Avoid sugar as much as you can 3. Exercise 3-4 times a week. 4. Have an early dinner, preferably before 8 p. M. 5. Do not starve yourself. Eat small meals 5 times a day. 6. Have barley soup in dinner and avoid rice at night. 7. Drink lots of water daily.

Smoking tobacco is one of the major risk factor for cancer. Inhaled tobacco gets absorbed in lungs and blood leading to not only lung or head and neck cancer but also can lead to gastrointestinal, prostate, rectum bladder etc many cancers. Unfortunately by the time one realises this it may be too late so please quit before its late.

U r definitely not pregnant. All these symptoms are of excessive progesterone which you got fro depo shot. Depo shot was meant to protect you from getting pregnant for 11-12 weeks i. E. 2.5 months. Bleeding and white liquid is nothing but the menses. You r likely to face similar kind of menses for 2-3 months after depo shot. There is no need to do urine test for pregnancy again.

As she has been started on chemotherapy, her immunity will come down. Means her body's power to fight against infection is down thats why she is getting recurrent infection. But no need to worry, just give her nutritious food and treat the infections accordingly.

Hyperphosphorylation of a number of proteins - the paratarg proteins - a tendency which is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner appears a common mechanism in these families. This tendency is more common in african american patients with myeloma and may contribute to the higher rates of myeloma in this group.
