Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Have you consulted any medical oncologist, and tried chemotherapy yet? sorafenib, as I know, is one of the best targeted therapies available for advanced renal cancer. Surgery, if attempted, may at best help de-bulk the tumor load. Advise consult oncologist, on the above-mentioned, for further traction. Its difficult to say exactly how long he can survive in the current context, with treatment. However, we can still attempt improving his health related quality of life and overall survival through appropriate alternative medicines that can be given as an adjunct or complementary to the conventional medical treatment. Hope this clarifies. Take care and all the very best.

I am 48 years old. Had mastectomy in 2007 t1n1mo right breast. Had chemotherapy 6 cycles and 5 years of tamoxifen. A recent breast ultrasound shows some simple cysts in the left breast. What does it indicate? is there any chance of these cysts turning malignant please Advice.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Need not worry about simple cysts, only worrisome thing would be solid mass lesions esp irregular growth, microcalcification may also indicate premalignant lesion, also must do breast self examination for any obvious changes

U should try to get it evaluated from a surgeon. It should be haemorrhoids by the sounds of what you say. If it bleeds only once a month and that too less amount. It should settle by medicines. You can come and consult me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Blood cancer is caused by abnormal proliferation of one of the components of blood, leading to suppression of others.hence leading to symptoms like prolonged fever, frequent infection, bleeding or easy bruising, lumps or lymphadenopathy. Blood cancer depending on type are treated by chemotherapy mostly and many have very long disease free survival and are almost curable but everything depends on how patients respond to treatments.

You may need evaluation with rgu, ultrasound and urine culture. If any abnormality in the reports like stricture or bladder neck contracture found then you will need cystoscopy and viu or bni. In case of infection in urine then treat that first.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. For every cancer can kill human being. Smoking increases the possibility of lung cancer. Lung cancer symptoms include respiratory problems, low appetite, pain and general tiredness. Take care.
