My husband is eating tobacco products very frequently what are the chances he might suffer from any sort of cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Madam, tobacco either smoking or smoke less, that is chewing, any form is harmful and nearly forty percent of cancers are associated with tobacco. Chewing tobacco not only causes oral cancers but as they get absorbed in the blood they can cause cancers of other organs.

What is main causes of blood cancer and what is the solution of this problem please reply me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, there is no specific cause of blood cancer. It may be caused by some mutations or change in gene sequence which may lead to uncontrolled growth of one of the components. This mutation could be due to any kind of injury like radiation exposure, chemicals or may be some environmental factors. Blood cancers are treated by chemotherapy with or without bone marrow transplantation.

One of my friends is suffering from breast cancer and it is said that intense pain is there. How can we be away from cancer?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
If the question is for your friend I would say that cancer has advanced to a state where it is involving chest wall thereby nerves. She requires palliative therapy. If you want to know for yourself, my reply is let breast be allowed to function for the purpose god created it for, i. E feed new born with your milk, maintain good hygiene while lactating, learn how to self examine breaths standing before a mirror, approach a surgeon or a gynecologist if in doubt if you notice swelling in breast, bleeding from nipples, or any abnormal discharge from nipple, look into both axillea for any swellings. When you visit a doctor give clear history about your age at menarche, no. Of children, lactating history, menstrual history, family history especially if your mother or sisters have any breast disease or cancer. My suggestion; when in doubt approach doctor right away, don't postpone. Thanks.

Testicular Cancer - Facts You Should Know About It

Testicular Cancer - Facts You Should Know About It

Testicular cancer is mostly witnessed among young adults in the age range of 24–35. It results from the growth of abnormal cells in the testes. It is not the most common type of cancer found in the body, but can pose a serious threat to an individual if not treated early. The cure rate is one of the highest among all kinds of cancer found in the body. This being said, the rate of cure is totally dependent on the stage of detection.

Risk Factors for Testicular Cancer
The historical trend of testicular cancer suggests that white men are prone to this type of cancer than their African, Asian and Latino counterparts. A person with a family history of testicular cancer of HIV is at higher risk of getting this disease. Some other risk factors include Klinefelter’s syndrome and cryptorchidism.

Protection from Testicular Cancer
There is no hard and fast rule of protection. It is suggested that the testicles get evaluated while routine medical check-up. A person with a family history of testicular cancer should opt for a periodic checkup after every three months. In case a patient has already recovered from testicular cancer, routine medical tests are a must to ensure non-recurrence.

Symptoms of Testicular Cancer
The common symptom is a swelling in the testicle. It feels like a thickening of the testicle and is mostly painless. Minor discomfort in the swelling region is often reported. Some other symptoms include back pain, ache in the scrotum and groin, change in the size of the testicle, bloating of the lower abdomen and heavy sensation of the scrotum. There is a rare form of this cancer, which produces a female hormone called estrogen in a man’s body. This disease results in a lack of sexual desire, lump in the affected area, etc. Even less serious testicular cancer might show these symptoms. An oncologist should be immediately consulted if one or more of these symptoms surfaces.

What are the treatment options?
Testicular cancer is mostly cured with the help of a surgery. A follow-up radiation and chemotherapy is suggested by doctors to destroy the surrounding cells. It is done to ensure that the cancer cells do not spread easily and the chance of recurrence is minimal. The rate of cure depends on early detection.

Does testicular cancer affect sexuality?
In most of the cases, testicular cancer is detected in one testicle. If this is the case, the other testicle produces all the hormones needed for sexual drive. It also does not affect sex drive, beard and muscularity. There is also a large section of patients who reported of a difficult sexual life after the surgery. There can be some discomfort in the scrotum as well.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized oncologist and ask a free question.

You have all the symptoms of an enlarged prostate most likely a benign (non cancerous) growth. Get an ultra sound abdomen and pelvis with full urinary bladder, and repeat the test after passing urine, called post voiding test which will show how much urine is left out after you normally pass this gives a fair idea of growth of prostate, my opinion is to see a urologist right away and follow his advice.

Fatty infiltration of Liver is the thing which is tickling your mind. Do not take tension and relax . Whatever your Doctor told you is absolutely right. If the infiltrates increase a lot and cross the limit then it leads to Fatty Liver which is a diseased condition. To avoid the increase in infiltrates you need to improve your lifestyle, especially food habbits, don't drink alcohol, restricted fat and sweet deit is needed and regular exercise must be practiced. Hope helped. Regards

not possible, Many different tumor markers have been characterized and are in clinical use. Some are associated with only one type of cancer, whereas others are associated with two or more cancer types. No “universal” tumor marker that can detect any type of cancer has been found.

What is the causes of blood cancer and its symptoms. How we prevent from blood cancer.

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
Genetic changes that cause cancer can be inherited from our parents. They can also arise during a person’s lifetime as a result of errors that occur as cells divide or because of damage to DNA caused by certain environmental exposures. Cancer-causing environmental exposures include substances, such as the chemicals in tobacco smoke, and radiation, such as ultraviolet rays from the sun. People who have blood cancer can have problems with bleeding and serious infections. Seek immediate for symptoms such as uncontrolled bleeding, severe sweating, difficulty breathing, pale or blue lips or fingernails, high fever (greater than 101 degrees Fahrenheit), fast heart rate, confusion, loss or change in level of consciousness, or anxiety.
