My question is on hard squeezing, my breast oozed out the fluid, I don't know what color fluid, but it did. Also, the other effects were pain, nipple burn, and a black layer has been formed over the nipple! Now it is getting back to normal.

What are of symptoms of oral cancer? Can it be cured? What are the foods that are essential for reducing the chances of it?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Oral cancers present as ulceration in oral cavity on tongue inner side of cheek, floor of mouth etc. One can also have a nodular growth, bleeding from it, neck swelling or nodal enlargement etc. Premalignant stages are reduced mouth opening, whitish patch, reddish patches etc. Must not take tobacco of any form, if any sharp tooth, then get it grinded or capping done, ill fitting dentures must be changed. Food containing antioxidants, lycopene have protective roles. Sprouts, leafy vegetables, turmeric, tuslsi leaves, wheatgrass etc may help.

Milk is good source of calcium but ofcourse getting it in pure form Is an issue. You can look for some authentic source locally may be fresh extracted milk if you could find nearby. You can try other forms like paneer, curd eggs etc for calcium.

Papillary carcinoma is very curable. If there are secondaries after total thyroidectomy you need to undergo functional neck dissection followed by radio iodine ablation therapy. You need to be under constant follow. Results are excellent and you can expect normal life span.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking opinion for your friend. Well, as far as I understand, gums are likely to bleed, which is one of the presenting symptoms at the onset of leukemia. This may as well have been triggered by some other reason including chest or throat infection too. Now that he is free from any such symptoms (of bleed), I do not think there is any reason to worry on this front. Nevertheless, I would still advise that you check this aspect with his consulting oncologist too, and proceed as he/ she advises you to. Do take care and all the very best.

Is there any vaccines for cancer? My father was expired due to gallbladder cancer. So I want know the vaccines if there. Any one please tell me how we can avoid cancer.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear, There is no cancer vaccine so far far preventing the cancer. Coincidental factors of cancer can be controlled like smoking, high fatty diets, use of packaged and preserved foods, inhalation of unwanted gasses, dues, dust, industrial inhalations and so on. Usage of antioxidants like fresh fruits, high fibre foods, Green leafy vegetables will help to keep you away from Cancer.

What are the signs and symptoms of cervical cancer and ovarian cancer if being away of sexual intercourse n not indulge in Otr sexual activity. So how easy way to know about it?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, cancer cervix may present as abnormal bleeding, it may be profuse intermenstrual or bleeding in between periods, discharge per vaginum, post menopausal bleeding, spotting after intercourse, back pain, abdominal pain etc. Ovarian cancers are mostly hidden for long as they may not produce any symptoms, mostly present as irregular periods, abdominal pain, distension or swelling of abdomen etc. Keeping away from sexual activity is no solution, only HPV related cervical cancer may be related to sex, but having safe sexual practice and getting HPV vaccination done you can prevent it. Personal hygiene is important. Both cancers can be detected early by screening health check up by PAP smear, CA 125 ultrasound abdomen, you can get this done annually for early diagnosis. Watch for any abnormal bleeding or irregular periods.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your aunt. Apparently, your aunt has been administered neo-adjuvant chemotherapy to reduce the tumor size so that it can be surgically resected later on. You need to do a risk benefit analysis with help from your onco-surgeon, and take a decision accordingly, fast. Simultaneously, an integrative treatment with alternative medicines can be of help in improving clinical outcomes. You can revert with all relevant details for further naturopathic traction. Do take care, and all the very best.
