Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It is a very sensitive matter because it is a bone tumour. The number of cycles of chemotherapy to be given actually depends upon a lot of factors and oncologists are best people to decide for that. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Is there any permanent solution for blood cancer what are the lowest expense treatment now available in india? Is it possible full recovery in one year what are the simtames of blood cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
dear sir, blood cancers are treated by chemotherapy followed by bone marrow transplantation. cost of treatment depends on the set up. In government hospitals and regional cancer centres subsidized or free treatment is available. There are many NGOs assisting in treatment they not only help financially but also help in rehabilitation. duration of treatment will depend on the type of blood cancer and the response to initial therapy.

In stage iv, there is no benefit of transplatation. Treatment given in metastatic case is usually palliation, means to decrease the symptoms and improve quality of life.

Hi my aunt is suffering from overeat cancer and the tumor size is 12x11x12 doesn't it can be treated by surgical method or radiation methods. She have pain lot.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear, ovarian cancers are mostly treated by surgery. If surgery is not possible you use chemotherapy to understage the tumor after which the surgery becomes easy which is to be done in any case. Radiation therapy has a limited role. Once the tumor size is reduced the pain will also go which is essentially due to compression of vital organs.

I do not think antibiotics has anything to do with your symptoms of fatigue, weakness, etc. Although the disease itself may cause such symptoms. Pls maintain a proper diet and if needed you may take multivitamins.

Hi this and from past 10 years I am having fribo adenoma on my right breast and twice I have been operated but again and again coming back.

There is no need to get it removed unless it is causing significant symptoms or is rapidly growing in size or there is a recent change in its character or there is some reason for suspicion. Harmless fibroadenoma may be left alone but with monthly observation by self examination and periodic examination by a general surgeon.

My sister age 49 operated for ovarian cancer in may 2015 than six cycle of chemo ended in oct 2015 ca .ca125 in july was 120 .now it is 8600. Pet is ok.

Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon, Mohali
Rise in Ca-125 is a worrying factor. I am surprised the Pet-CT is normal. I think one of the 2 reports is wrong. Get the Pet-CT re-reported. Get Ca-125 repeated. If still same reports wait for a month and get Ca-125 repeated. If coming down or normal-then nothing to be done. If rising further chemotherapy with or without Pet-CT.

The pain may be due to inflammation of the lymph nodes. In case you are having associated fever, do try to get a ENT check up for possibility of Acute Tonsillitis. If there is obvious swelling in the area you mention consider getting a opinion from a surgeon if biopsy is indicated. Let me know if you need more details.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Each organ of our body has lymphatic supply like we have blood supply which drain into group of lymph nodes. These lymph nodes get enlarged when ever there is some trouble to primary organ they are draining. This may be due to infection, inflammation, cancers etc anything. Cervical lymph nodes drain mostly head and neck region. Reactive hyperplasia is non cancerous enlargement of lymph nodes may be due to some infection or inflammation. Need not worry.

I'm 62years lady. Just diagnosed with 2A stage cancer in one breast n going to remove that breast. Please suggest is chemo compulsory in cancer for permanent cure.

MBBS, MS- Surgery , M.Ch - Surgical Oncology , FIAGES
Oncologist, Delhi
Treatment for breast cancer is multimodality. Surgery is mainstay with neoadjuvant or adjuvant chemotherapy, targetted therapy, radiation therapy and/or hormone therapy depending on individual case risk factors. Mastectomy: most commonly modified radical mastectomy which removes breast tissue along with lymph nodes in the axilla. After mastectomy whole breast reconstruction is and immediate or delayed option. Breast conservation surgery: involves removal of tumor along with surrounding tissue to completely remove the tumor. Axillary lymph nodes are addressed through separate incision. Sentinel lymph node biopsy/ axillary sampling: to decrease morbidities of lymph node dissection first draining lymph nodes only are removed in patients with clinically negative axilla. If negative on frozen section further axillary dissection is avoided.

Lung Cancer: Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Lung Cancer: Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in one or both lungs. These abnormal cells do not carry out the functions of normal lung cells and do not develop into healthy lung tissue. As they grow, the abnormal cells can form tumors and interfere with the functioning of the lung, which provides oxygen to the body via the blood.

Lung cancer is the most common cause of death due to cancer in both men and women throughout the world. According to the U.S. National Cancer Institute, approximately one out of every 14 men and women in the U.S. is diagnosed with cancer of the lung at some point in their lifetime. Lung cancer is predominantly a disease of the elderly; almost 70% of people diagnosed with lung cancer are over 65 years of age, while less than 3% of lung cancers occur in people under 45 years of age.

What Causes Lung Cancer?

The development of lung cancer is strongly associated with cigarette smoking, approximately 90% of lung cancers are attributable to use of tobacco. Pipe and cigar smoking can also cause lung cancer, but the risk is not as high as with cigarette smoking. Tobacco smoke contains more than 4,000 chemical compounds, many of which are cancer causing (carcinogens). Passive smoking, i.e. the inhalation of tobacco smoke by non-smokers who live or work with smokers, is also an established risk factor for the development of lung cancer.

Genetic susceptibility (i.e. family history) may play a role in the development of lung cancer. Other causes of lung cancer include air pollution (from vehicles, industry, and power generation) and inhalation of asbestos fibres (usually in the workplace).

Lung Cancer Symptoms:

Early symptoms and signs of lung cancer:

There may be no symptoms at the onset of the disease. When present, common symptoms of lung cancer may include:

  1. Coughing: This includes a persistent cough that doesn't go away or changes to a chronic smoker's cough, such as more coughing or pain.
  2. Coughing up blood: Coughing up blood or rust-colored sputum (spit or phlegm) should always be discussed with your doctor.
  3. Breathing Difficulties: Shortness of breath, wheezing or noisy breathing (called stridor) may all be signs of lung cancer.
  4. Loss of Appetite: Many cancers cause changes in appetite, which may lead to unintended weight loss.
  5. Fatigue: It is common to feel weak or excessively tired.
  6. Recurring infections: Recurring infections, like bronchitis or pneumonia, may be one of the signs of lung cancer.

Signs of advanced stages of lung cancer: Advanced stages of lung cancer are often characterized by the spread of cancer to distant sites in the body. This may affect the bones, liver or brain. As other parts of the body are affected, new lung cancer symptoms may develop, including:

  1. Bone pain
  2. Swelling of the face, arms or neck
  3. Headaches, dizziness or limbs that become weak or numb
  4. Jaundice
  5. Lumps in the neck or collar-bone region

Treatment: Treatment for cancer involves a combination of surgery to remove cancer cells, chemotherapy and radiation therapy to kill cancer cells. Lung cancer is incurable unless complete surgical removal of the tumour cells can be achieved. Surgery is the most effective treatment for lung cancer, but only a few percentage of lung cancers are suitable for surgery i.e. Stage I and II NSCLC and cancer that has not spread beyond the lung.

Radiation therapy may be used for both NSCLC and SCLC and is a good option for people who are not suitable for surgery or who refuse surgery. Chemotherapy is used for both NSCLC and SCLC. Chemotherapy drugs may be given alone or in combination with surgery or radiation therapy. Chemotherapy is the treatment of first choice for SCLC since it has usually spread extensively in the body by the time it has been diagnosed.

Also used in the treatment of lung cancer are targeted therapies. These are drugs (gefitinib and erlotinib) or antibodies (cetuximab, bevacizumab) that block the growth and spread of cancer by interfering with specific molecules involved in tumor growth and progression. They are used in some patients with NSCLC that does not respond to standard chemotherapy.
