" well differentiated oral squamous Cell Carcinoma" as stated it is an early staged cancer that needs attention. I would like to ask a few Qs which go unanswered by the docs in hospitals. Is it a mandate to go for the surgery or it is subject to the CT scan reports and blood reports. Second- I need a second opinion and detailed discussion to understand the procedures. Who can help. Would like to consult a surgical oncologist.

The ideal treatment for early oral cancer is surgery. The cure rates are exceedingly high with surgery. Post surgery radiotherapy can be given depending upon the final pathological staging. Ct scan is a useful guide before surgery.

How stomach cancer starts in upper abdomen. Because I am feeling lumpy when observing with hands on my stomach.
It necessarily does not means that you are having cancer - it could be cyst/tumor. You better do a ct scan on whole abdomen to conclude further.

This seems to cyclical mastalgia that occurs more during menstrual cycles. Nothing to worry. This is related to harmones and treatment is possible. Please consult a surgeon for confirmation of diagnosis by detailed history and examination as any proper treatment can only be advised after confirmation of disease.

Prostate Cancer - Signs and Symptoms

Prostate Cancer -  Signs and Symptoms

Cancer is the most dangerous disease noticeable throughout the world. The most common type of cancer that affects men is prostate cancer. Prostate is a small exocrine gland situated directly below the bladder and in front of the rectum. This is gland is approximately in size of a walnut and plays an important role in production of a milky fluid during orgasm of sex in which the semen travels. During the climax stage of the prostate gland is forced to push the fluid and remove the semen out of the reproductive structures.

Prostate gland is a slow progressive disease which makes many males left unidentified even the presence of prostate cancer even until they die. 6 out of 100 male over the age of 60 are getting prostate cancer. Though prostate cancer can be cured at a better rate when compared to other type of cancer it is always best to stay protected. Prevention is always better than cure. Here are few tips to keep your prostate healthy.

Signs and symptoms of prostate cancer-

During the early stages of prostate cancer there are usually no symptoms. Most men at this stage find out they have prostate cancer after a routine check up or blood test. When symptoms do exist, they are usually one or more of the following:

  1. The patient urinates more often

  2. The patient gets up at night more often to urinate

  3. He may find it hard to start urinating

  4. He may find it hard to keep urinating once he has started

  5. There may be blood in the urine

  6. Urination might be painful

  7. Ejaculation may be painful (less common)

  8. Achieving or maintaining an erection may be difficult (less common).

If the prostate cancer is advanced the following symptoms are also possible:

  1. Bone pain, often in the spine (vertebrae), pelvis, or ribs

  2. The proximal part of the femur can be painful

  3. Leg weakness

  4. Urinary incontinence

  5. Fecal incontinence

Ways to have a healthy prostate –

  1. Diet and weight – the most important factor is the diet to maintain a healthy weight. Avoid fatty food items and take fats from vegetables than from animals. Avoid dairy products and increase the intake of fresh fruits and vegetables.

  2. Exercise – have a regular practise of doing exercise at least for 30mins a day. This really helps you to keep your body fit.

  3. Be precautious – if you have a family history of prostate cancer or if you feel you are at high risk of getting prostate cancer talk with your doctor about it and take preventive drugs as per the doctor’s advice.

  4. Red foods – research shows that men who consume red foods like watermelon, tomato and other red fruits are at lower risk of getting prostate cancer as they contain a powerful antioxidant called lycopene

  5. Caffeine – three to four cups of coffee per day reduces your risk of getting prostate cancer.

  6. Stop smoking – if you are at high risk of getting prostate cancer it is best advised to quit smoking and alcohol. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an urologist.

urotone or betheran are substitutes, but should only be taken on prescription as their are side effects of the drug.

My right breast is producing milk like substance and no other symptoms found. M sure that I'm not pregnant then what is it. What should I do? Can these be breast Cancer. Kindly suggest me.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
Many times, because of hormonal imbalances, the breast may abnormally produce milk like substance. I would recommend you to get serum prolactin levels done. Also get an ultrasound of both the breasts done if you are less than 40 years of age, otherwise get a digital mammography of both the breasts and review with reports for further advise.

I am suffering from Hodgkin lymphoma from last 1year. I want to ask what are the causes of this and how can we leave from this and what types of food I need to eat and in how much time take to healthy me?

MBBS, DNB ( Radiation Oncology)
Oncologist, Mumbai
Hello, hodgkins lymphoma is usually a treatable cancer which responds very well to chemotherapy and radiation. Depending on the stage the number of cycles of chemotherapy and radiation dose is decided. Many times there may be history of exposure to radiation in childhood and many times it just happens due to some genetic mutations too. You should have a balanced diet, with adequate proteins, green leafy vegetables, fruits, lots of antioxidants. Hope that helps!
