Common Cancer In Women - How They Can be Prevented?

With the modernization of all economies around the world, one health hazard that has become one of the largest perils within both developed and developing nations is the incidence of cancers of the female reproductive system, especially cervical and breast cancer.

Cervical cancer ( Carcinoma Cervix)

Cervical cancer is the cancer of the cervix, which is the opening of the uterus and connects the uterus to the vagina. Indian women in particular are susceptible to cervical cancer as more than 1/3rd of the cervical cancer related deaths in the entire world happens here in India, which is about 74000 deaths annually. The leading cause for cervical cancer is HPV or Human Papillomavirus infection, which if left untreated and unchecked will result in cancer.

Alarming Signs of Cervical Carcinoma:

  • Early lesions and precancerous lesions have no symptoms
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding such as bleeding after vaginal intercourse, bleeding after menopause, bleeding and spotting between periods or longer/heavier periods
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Pelvic pain
  • Late stage disease may cause lower extremity swelling, problem with urine and/or stool passage

Screening Guidelines:

  • Cervical cancer screening is most effective screening programme of any cancer disease resulting in significant decrease in mortality from carcinoma cervix
  • United state preventive services task force (USPSTF) recommend cervical cancer screening starting at age 21 yrs.
  • Between age 21-30 years cytology recommended at 3 year interval and HPV testing is not recommended.
  • Between 30-65 years cytology every 3 year or cytology +HPV testing every 5 year.
  • If previously adequately screened screening can be discontinued after 65 years.
  • Women with prior total hysterectomy and no CIN can discontinue screening.

Risk Factors for Cervical Cancer-

The number one predisposing factor for cervical cancer is infection with the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). Any factor which increases a woman’s risk of contracting Human Papilloma Virus will increase the risk of cervical cancer. These following factors increase a womans risk of getting Human Papilloma Virus (HPV):

  1. Intercourse without barrier contraceptives.
  2. Multiple sexual partners.
  3. Sex with a partner that has penile warts.
  4. Cigarette smoking doubles a womans risk of getting cervical cancer.

Treatment

Treatment options depend on the following:

  1. The stage of the cancer.
  2. The type of cervical cancer.
  3. The patient's desire to have children.
  4. The patient’s age.

For cervical cancer found early or for cancer found during the last trimester of pregnancy, treatment may be delayed until after the baby is born. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.

Early Signs and Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer!

Oncologist, Mumbai
Early Signs and Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer!

Ovarian cancer tends to occur in the cells of an ovary. The ovaries are the two glands which are responsible for female reproduction. They produce ova or eggs and also create the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone. Ovarian cancer begins when abnormal cells in the ovary start to multiply rapidly and grow out of control to form a tumour.

Generally, it was believed that ovarian cancer does not deliver any specific side effects until the tumour has spread to a later stage and early indications of ovarian cancer were not recognizable.

Nonetheless, in some of the cases, ovarian cancer may bring about early indications. The most widely recognized symptoms of ovarian cancer are as follows:

  1. Constant bloating
  2. Ache in your gut or pelvis
  3. Inconvenience eating
  4. Feeling full instantly
  5. Urinary issues, for example, an urgent need to urinate or urinating more frequently than expected

In case that you have at least one of these side effects and it happens every day for more than two or three weeks, try to consult a doctor or a specialist.

These symptoms are basic for a few women. They may not imply that you have ovarian cancer. It is very important for women to understand that these symptoms do not necessarily imply that they have ovarian cancer. The same number of other common and harmless conditions can bring about the same indications. Additionally, different reasons for these symptoms are significantly more common than ovarian cancer. These may include irritable bowel syndrome and urinary tract infections (UTIs). In any case, the early indications of ovarian cancer tend to follow a pattern, which is as follows:

  1. They begin abruptly.

  2. They do not feel the same as your typical stomach-related or menstrual issues.

  3. They happen almost consistently and do not leave.

Different signs and symptoms that affect a few women with ovarian cancer include the following:

  1. Digestion problem

  2. Fatigue

  3. Back pain.

  4. Pain during intercourse

  5. Constipation

  6. Menstrual cycle changes

However, these side effects are also common in a few women who do not have ovarian cancer. Most of the ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at a later stage after the tumours have spread. Fortunately, around 20% of women are diagnosed early, when the infection might be generally treatable. There is no complete screening test for early ovarian cancer. General pelvic examinations now and then, followed by ultrasound examinations or blood tests for cancer-related markers, have been routinely used for ovarian cancer screening. However, none of these tests are particularly effective when it comes to identifying ovarian cancer.

In case some of these symptoms start to manifest in your body, one should go for a general check-up. This is so because cancers are usually diagnosed at later stages where treatment is very difficult. Hence, the sooner one knows, the better it is. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.

Chemotherapy - 11 Tips To Help You Get Through It!

Chemotherapy - 11 Tips To Help You Get Through It!

Chemotherapy can be frightening, and the very thought of going through it can be an ordeal for most people. Many resources and tips can be used to minimize the discomfort and lessen the burden. Let us have a look at a few of these.

  1. Support network: Chemotherapy can be physically daunting and more than the treatment a person needs all the emotional and moral support he/she can get. Have friends and family always by your side. You can have peace of mind when there is a person you can trust and bank upon in taking care of you.
  2. Discuss the medication with your oncologist: Before understanding the treatments have a detailed discussion about the current medication you are undergoing, as this may hamper the chemotherapy treatment. The dosage has to be adjusted accordingly.
  3. Keep the body hydrated: Your body gets dehydrated on the day of the treatment. Please ensure that the body is properly hydrated and plenty of fluids are there in the body.
  4. Be comfortable: Taking chemotherapy can have an effect on your morale. Hence make sure that you are keeping yourself occupied with books and games or your favorite music to while away the time.
  5. Wear comfortable clothes: This makes all the difference in the treatment as having loose fitting clothes can relive pressures in your mind. Always choose clothes that you are comfortable in.
  6. Ask questions: Chemotherapy treatments can and will cause side effects. Hence ask and keep yourself updated as much as possible. More importantly after the treatment ask questions on the possible recuperation period and how best to go about it.
  7. Symptoms of nausea and vomiting: It is natural that most of the patients feel light headed or have a vomiting sensation when undergoing the treatment. Always make sure that the doctor or the nurse knows about it. Make yourself as comfortable as possible. Some medications to prevent nausea can be had along with the chemotherapy drugs.
  8. Avoiding infection: Chemotherapy affects the immune system of the body. Hence it can get easily susceptible to diseases. Have a general cleanliness around your surroundings. Avoid crowds if possible and keep your hands always clean and wear clean, comfortable clothes that don't stick to the body.
  9. Right diet: Chemotherapy makes you prone to weight loss. Hence having the desired nutritional levels is mandatory. Consult a dietician and eat healthy. It is not advisable to gain weight either during or after chemotherapy.
  10. Adequate Rest: Our body needs all the rest that it can get when undergoing chemotherapy. Make sure that the body gets proper sleep and is relaxed. You can try for meditation and simple yoga exercises that can help in rejuvenating the body.
  11. Skin Care: Prolonged treatment can affect the moisture content in the skin. Have a good skin cream and lotions handy to take care of it. In some cases, chemotherapy causes hair fall. Make sure that a proper wig or a treatment plan is made beforehand to take care of the issues.

Chemotherapy treatment can be emotionally daunting. Having a few precautions like the ones stated above can make all the difference in how successful we are in coping with it.

Hello, I have been diagnosed with LABC -- locally advanced breast cancer (Stage 3C) I would like to know more about the tumour markers CA 15-3 ,CA 27-29 and CEA. I would like to know how many breast cancer cells must exist in the body to elicit a positive response --- 1, 5, 20 or a few hundred. If a single breast cancer cell can elicit a positive tumour marker response then these tests can be used after treatment (chemo, surgery and radiation) to see if any cancer cell has survived. Alternatively after treatment I can get my blood tested every two weeks to see if there is any recurrence. In other words I am looking for information about the SENSITIVITY of these tumour marker tests. Waiting for your reply (Female, 40 years)

Unfortunately the tumour markers for breast cancer are not at all sensitive or specific. As such they are not used for surveillance or diagnosis or follow up. For diagnosis a combination of clinical breast examination, mammogram (xray and/or usg) and biopsy gives almost 100% diagnosis. After completion of treatment, the follow up is with clinical examination and a mammogram.

My mom is of 50 years old. Lab test: 1) CT scan of Abdomen and Pelvis: Impression-Mildly enhancing heterogeneous lesion in the right adnexa adjacent to the right lateral wall of uterus. Right ovary is not separately visualized .Lesion is seen extending below the muscular plane of anterior wall breeching the peritoneum. Features are suggestive of mass lesion -likely ovarian origin. 2) THE ULTRASONOGRAPHY OF ABDOMEN & PELVIS IS ALSO SHOWING THE SAME IMPRESSION. 3) Creatinine is showing 0.7 mg/dl 4) CA125 showing 10.10 U/ml. On the basis of above impressions please do suggest me how much will it cost for the treatment? And whether it is a ovarian cancer? Please do reply ASAP.

Dear Lybrate user, The reports are in a borderline zone. As she is perimenopausal, there is a risk of having cancer. For such cases we advise a MRI with contrast of the abdomen and pelvis and a test called as ROMA: which checks the CA 125, HE 4 and your imaging findings and calculates the risk of cancer. If it's borderline or high or if the patient has already achieved menopause, then surgical removal should be planned. This procedure can be done safely by laparoscopy (key hole surgery). By no means should a biopsy be done as if it's a cancer, biopsy can upgrade the tumour from stage 1 to stage 3 so avoid a biopsy at any cost.

If it's uterus cancer then yes surgery is the first step which includes hysterectomy and bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection. Based on the report of this surgery, the further treatment is planned. Except for stage 4 where surgery is not an option.

Oral Cancer: Symptoms and Risk Factors of It

Oral cancer is the uncontrollable growth of cells called tumors that invade and damage the tissues surrounding it is in or around the mouth. Oral cancer, like all other types of cancer, is life threatening if not diagnosed and treated in the early stages. There are eight types of oral cancer namely cancer in the throat, sinuses, hard and soft palate, floor of the mouth, gums, cheeks, tongue and lips. Dentists are usually the first ones to notice and detect the signs and symptoms of oral cancer. This condition is also known as oral cavity cancer. The risk factors and symptoms of oral cancer are mentioned below.

Symptoms:

The symptoms of oral cancer, especially in the first stages, seem non-threatening and similar to common oral problems. However, visiting the doctor is mandatory to rule out cancer as an option. If you suffer from one or more of the following symptoms, visit your dentist immediately.

  1. Thickenings and swellings, lumps or bumps, crusts, eroded areas or rough spots on the lips, gums or surrounding regions inside or around the mouth.
  2. Bleeding in the mouth that is unexplainable. 
  3. Persistent sores near and around the mouth or throat that bleed easily and may take more than two weeks to heal.
  4. Unexplained numbness or pain and tenderness in the mouth, throat or face.
  5. Development of patches, which are usually speckled, red or white in the mouth. 
  6. Sudden weight loss.
  7. Excruciating pain in your ear.
  8. Loose teeth.
  9. Difficulty in swallowing.
  10. Lumps in your neck. 
  11. Stiffness or pain in your jaw.
  12. Pain in your tongue.
  13. Dentures that fit poorly. 

Risk factor:

Men above 50 years of age face the greatest risk of developing oral cancer. Women are at a much lower risk of developing oral cancer than men. The following factors increase your risk of developing oral cancer: 

  1. Smoking cigarettes, cigars or pipes 
  2. Snuff, dips or chewing tobacco
  3. Excessive consumption of alcohol
  4. History of oral or other types of cancer in the family
  5. Chronic sun exposure, especially facial exposure
  6. Sexually transmitted virus such as HPV
  7. Diagnosed of oral cancer previously. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.

Hello, I want to reduce my breast size, my friend suggest me to use ALEXANDERM PILLS, she told that it gives best result, shall I use this pills for my breast reduction.

Breast reduction can happen only with weight loss or by a surgery called reduction mammoplasty. All other medications are useless. A proper weight loss regime with toning exercises can help in losing the excess fat in the breast if you are obese. If you are thin, then surgery would be the only option

When the stones are small, the risk is that the stones can slip into the bile duct. This can cause an emergency called obstructive jaundice. So it's better to undergo surgery called laparoscopic cholecystectomy. It is a 2 hr surgery and the patient goes home the next day

The black lesions could be something called melanoplakia. They per se won't cause cancer. However it has been shown that a compound in pan masala called arecholine can cause cancer. Almost 9/10 patients who consume pan masala, tobacco, gutkha will develop cancer sooner or later. So if you stop the habit and take the present medication, things should be fine

Stage 1 and stage 2 have excellent success rates. Even in stage 3,we can technically cure the patient, but the risk of recurrence is high because of the advanced nature of the disease. A biopsy and mri is sufficient to decide the stage of the disease and treatment can be planned accordingly

Brain tumor is unfortunately one of the more problematic tumor. Even after brain surgery, one cannot guarantee complete removal and also the chance of a full recovery. Moreover, during surgery, if any vital structures of the brain get injured, there can be long lasting effects.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user. A CT scan is not sufficient to diagnose cervical cancer. The patient will need a colposcopic examination and sos biopsy in case of any suspicious areas. If a cancer is suspected, then MRI will give further information. So a thorough clinicial, colposcopic and radiological examination will only confirm the diagnosis of cancer.

Helo doctors. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer stage 2 two months ago and she had surgery to remove one breast. Then they did some tests and she is advised to undergo further treatment chemo or radiation. How long is it safe for her to stay without starting the treatment?

Dear lybrate-user, The chemo and/or radiation should be started once she is fit. Usually we keep an interval between 2 to 4 weeks from surgery to start the further treatment. Further delay can increase the chances of recurrence.

Dear lybrate-user, Unfortunately ayurveda will not cure cancer. However if her CA 19.9 is elevated we have to evaluate her for pancreatic, biliary, colonic or ovarian cancers. So she will need an endoscopy, Mri /CT abdomen and pelvis to evaluate the organ of origin of the cancer and plan treatment accordingly

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, Doing a biopsy doesn't make a cancer spread. Of course the biopsy needs to be done by a surgeon or surgical oncologist who understand the pathology properly. Unfortunately homeopathy for whatever they claim does not cure any swellings/lumps or any cancer. You can show a surgeon or surgical oncologist. If it's a simple swelling like lipoma or fibroma, you don't need any surgery

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, Mammogram is just one investigation for breast cancer. If it says malignant, then we need to do a fnac /biopsy of the lump. We also need to do a xray mammogram, a xray chest and a sonography of the abdomen and bone scan to stage the disease. If the disease is localized only to the breast and/or the axilla (armpit), it can be completely removed.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, Signet ring cell carcinoma is a variant of adenocarcinoma. It looks like a signet ring because of lot of mucin inside the cells. Usually signet ring carcinoma are more aggressive types and often present with advanced disease.
