Before 1 week my uncle was admitted in hospital because of brain tumour and it was cancerous he had the operation there and it was successful but the doctor was saying that he can't live anymore only 3-4 months he is having and he is going for chemotherapy, is there any way to save his life ,so that he can live more.

MBBS, MD - Radiothrapy
Oncologist, Delhi
Hi lybrate-user With the details you gave, most probably your uncle is having glioblastoma. After surgery, radiation should be given to the region of brain where tumour was located. This is the internationally recommended treatment. Alongwith radiation he should have an oral tablet of chemotherapy daily. Despite treatment the average survival observed in our hospital in such cases is around 20 months.

Traffic Jams - Can they Make Your Body Susceptible to Cancer

Traffic Jams - Can they Make Your Body Susceptible to Cancer

The most dreadful part of getting to work and getting back home in the evening is the being stuck in a traffic jam. Whether you’re driving yourself or being driven home, a traffic jam can sap your spirits and make you feel tired even though you’re not really exerting yourself. According to a recent study, these traffic jams not only increase your stress levels, but also make your body susceptible to cancer.

Yes! They can be a major reason behind your ill health-

  1. Bumper to bumper traffic that moves at snail pace can be very stressful, especially if you have to get somewhere at a particular time. The irritation of not being able to move at your desired pace adds on to the million other things going on in your mind. The body reacts to stress by increasing blood sugar and blood pressure levels. Long term stress can lead to digestive problems, fertility issues and a weakened immune system that makes the body vulnerable to other diseases and infections. Stress can also lead to the development of behavior like smoking, drinking and over eating which can increase a person’s risk of cancer.
  2. Pollution levels are highest at traffic signals and at traffic jams. This is because at a busy intersection, cars go through various stages such as accelerating, braking and idling in a restricted space. Each of these actions is accompanied with emission of toxic gases and fine particles of matter which concentrate in an area and take longer to disperse. Contrary to popular belief, people in cars can be more affected by these pollutants than pedestrians. This is especially true in cases where people have their windows up and fans on as the fans suck in polluted air leading to a buildup of toxic gases inside the car. When these gases and particulate matter are inhaled, they get stuck in the nose and throat and are absorbed into the blood stream. Long term exposure to this can have serious negative effects on the body including a higher risk to cancer. To avoid this, ensure that the setting of the ac of your car or fan is set to only circulate air inside the car without drawing in polluted air from outside.

Also, try and find ways to avoid traffic jams. If your office allows, maybe you could try changing your timing a little. Experiment with routes. Often the inner roads have more twists and turns but much less traffic.

My mother is suffering from cancer in back and she has pain in her legs but not at the place of cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, if disease is involving vertebrae or pelvis then pain can radiate to back along with the nerves which arise from vertebrae. There can be calcium or vitamin D deficiency that may be the cause. So first let your doctor verify the cause and then she may be treated accordingly.

I want to take medicine to dry the breast milk. Dr. suggests cbline. Now should I release some milk if breast get engorge? If yes how much and how many times a day. And if I lead to non release then does it have chances of mastitis?

FMAS, MS
General Surgeon, Gandhinagar
Respected lybrate-user hi yes you can take medicine surely. It's advisable to release the milk by circumferential gentle compression of breast area 3-4 inches surrounding areola 3-4 times a day with each session of around 4-5 minutes. If you do this if you have no pain in doing that it's better otherwise don't worry of getting future mastitis by not releasing milk. Thanks regards I hope you got your answers still some query you r welcome at anytime dear.

How to detect oral cancer? I was suffering follicles on tonsil, I often use to press it out and which relieves me. Now from 6 months have passed no follicles seen. There is constant sore throat. I am habitual tobacco chewer. Early diagnosis may help me. Hence let me know how to get examined for oral/throat malignancy?

BDS,MDS
Dentist, Noida
Hi early diagnosis of cancer is necessary as it will always improve the prognosis. And as you are a habitual consumer of tobacco I will advice you to go for a punch biopsy which is available in most of the dental clinics. There are also many screening test available which can be done chairside which includes toludene blue screening and exfoliative cytology. But you have to withdraw the habit of consuming tobacco as it will nothing will benefit you more than this.

Could you please suggest weather radiology is best or chemotherapy for treatment of cancer.

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist, Mandsaur
Radiotherapy & chemotherapy are two ways to treat cancer. Few cancers are more sensitive to radiotherapy while others are radio resistant. Same way few are chemotherapy resistant while other cancers are chemo sensitive. So it depends on nature of cancer and accordingly it is decided to treat cancer by chemotherapy, radiotherapy or by both modalities. Nothing like which modality is better, in few cancer radiotherapy is good while in others chemotherapy is better.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user treatment depends upon the etent of disease in the pancreas. If surgery not possible combned pain killers along with suitable chemotherapy and adjunctive radiotherapy will shrink the disease and reduce the pain. This will also increase the survival time of the patient.

My friend told me that the smoke of the mosquito coil can cause cancer in our body. Is it true what he told me?

MBBS, DNB ( Radiation Oncology)
Oncologist, Mumbai
There are no proven studies to show that smoke from mosquito coil can cause cancer. It can cause problems in asthmatics, but definitely no evidence of causing cancer.

I have some fode in y back these are sign of cancer? Which test for the cancer is required to know about this.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
You must consult a surgeon to exactly identify the Nature of lump, most likely it would be benign but ofcourse warrants attention. Fnac may be performed or if clinically suspicious incisional biopsy may be performed. Lot can be ruled out by clinical evaluation.

Why we ard using chemical in medicine? Why we don't use ayurveda medicine for cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cytotoxic agents used in chemotherapy, many of them are derived from plants and in ayuvedic medicines also sometimes heavy metals are used. Because cancer cells arise from normal body cells and killing them by any means may be toxic to the whole body, but unfortunately that is what has to be done.
