Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. First and foremost, one must quit smoking. Again, it does not necessarily mean that everybody who smokes gets cancer. Smoking does increase the risk, though, of getting cancer. Simultaneously, it exposes one to various lung ailments too. I would advise you to go for a healthy and balanced diet and maintain a regular and active lifestyle with due focus on daily exercises, yoga/ 'pranayam' (/breath control), de-stressing and relaxation. Try including more of deep green leafy vegetables, whole grain cereals, omega-3 fats and fresh seasonal fruits in your daily diet. Preferably, go for a mediterranean diet for maximum benefits. Staying well hydrated is important too. Dietary supplementation of B vitamins especially vitamin B6, in contextually appropriate doses, is known to reduce the risk of lung cancer. The above-mentioned mostly stands good for throat/ oral cancer too. The dietary guidelines apart, including fresh drumstick, neem, cranberry etc is known to contribute to chemo-prevention too. Additionally, do take care of your oral hygiene on a day-to-day basis. Would recommend a regular dental / ENT check up (every 6 months) too, to be on a safer side. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

Hi , I appreciate you seeking help. Well, weight loss, weakness, anorexia, ascitis, edema etc all are seen in liver cancer. Your low appetite, and hence the associated weight loss, may be because of the side effect of present medication as well. You can check with your oncologist / physician on the same too. In general, however, I would advise that you try having multiple small meals than three larger ones. Should your health permit, you can also go for some gentle yet safe exercises (like walking) which is likely to help too. Try have healthy and balanced meals that suit your taste, and also have it in a relaxed environment. You may listen to music or watch your favorite TV program while taking your food. You can connect with me with all relevant diagostics & treatment history to help you out specifically with safe natural medications that can ameliorate your present heath concerns. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely,

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, the biopsy report is indicative of invasion to the lamina propria. But, can you doubly check with your doc if there is any invasion into the lymphatics too? so far as I know, such cases are treated with bcg vaccination, assuming there is no lymph node invasion. Additionally, given to understand that its a high grade carcinoma, there always is a high risk of metastasis despite a tur-bt surgery. Hence, the need to aggressively manage it, to the extent of even going for a full bladder cystectomy should it so demand, to help avert a futuristic metastasis and improve prognosis. Anyways, do clarify the above-mentioned through an expert second opinion with an oncologist specializing in urology cancers. From a dietary standpoint, try including more of fresh turmeric, carrots, tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, green tea (twice daily) etc all besides other leafy greens. Pomegranate juice & vitamin c (can try'amalaki') helps too in this condition. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best to you.

My dad is suffering with chronic pancreatitis... Is it possible that this disease would effect the liver.. And cause liver cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, chronic pancreatitis is a chronic inflammation of pancreas and the most common risk factor is alcohol abuse. Though it has not been proven conclusively but there is substantially increased incidence of pancreatic cancer in patients suffering from pancreatitis as compare to general population. As far as liver cancer is concerned is could be co-incidental as the risk factor for liver cancer is again alcohol abuse so though there is no direct link but due to common risk factor it could co-exist.

I have a little lump with redness in my breast. Now in period time. Its look like a pimple. My age is 20. My grandma passed away because of breast cancer. So that whenever lump coming I am worrying for that. Is it no need to worry about that? Can you tell me why this lumps are coming and how many days it can be there?

General Surgeon, Pune
Dear lybrate-user, From what you describe it could be an infection. But since you have a family history of breast cancer, it is best to meet a doctor in person and get examined. It could be infection with pus collection, or a benign lump, etc. So please get checked.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

For past few months I am facing problem in my left breast, it pains specially in night. And also there is kind of knot in my breast. Help me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, if you have found a lump in your breast, it should be evaluated by a clinician to ascertain the same and if indicated then ultrasound or mammography can be done and needle aspiration if required. Breast pain is usual if your periods are nearing due to inflammation or swelling of breast due to hormonal changes and you can do fomentation and take some pain killer for temporary period also vitamin e supplement some times help.

Now, I am 43 years and also the patient of mental depression, GERD and P. C. O. S.O. D. What treatment/ medicine I have to take now, Sir.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Pune
Fibroadenosis is known to have a periodic fluctuation in size of the lumpish feel. At your age it is important to rule out other causes of nipple discharge. If you have family history of breast cancer in first degree relatives, please see a surgeon at the earliest.

Sir, my daughter is 18 years and recently found that there is a lump in her left brest. What to do? We got examined, atopsy etc. Found that it is not a cancer tumor. How to get it removed? Or it will be dissolved in course of time? Pls clarify.

PGDMLS, PGDHHM, LLB, PhD Surgery, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Gurgaon
In view of the information provided, it may be a fibroadenoma or a fibroadenosis. Fibroadenoma is painless and can be left as such. There is no medical treatment for it. If it causes any tension or if there is any change in its characteristics, it may be removed surgically. The procedure is simple and can be done as an outpatient (ie without admission to the hospital)
