It's better not to mix allopathic medicine with Ayurvedic medicine and I will suggest you to first complete your chemotherapy.

What kind of food habit can able to cause ulcer and stomach cancer? Are they have any difference?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Spicy food, smoked salmon and fish, lots of chilli, apprehensive people are more likely to develop ulcers. There is a bacteria helicobactor pylori also responsible for both ulceration and cancer. Ulcer is simply breach in mucosa, whereas cancer is abnormal growth which may spread to other parts also.

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.

General Surgeon, Gurgaon
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.

MD - Radiothrapy
Oncologist, Ahmedabad
Hi your treatment is completed or not? Oral Ulcer is most common side effect in patients undergoing ct+RT, IT'S seen in every patients. Take vitamins, healthy diet, local analgesic like mucopain gel and pain killer. Do gargles 10 to 12 times in day, avoid gargles which contains alcohol. Use betadine gargles. Avoid spice food during treatment and for 4-6 months after treatment. If you have difficulty and pain during swallowing, take lignocaine viscous syrup before eating, Get well soon!

Lump discovered please help Hi, I have never had a lump in my breast before I'm 24 years old and I'm worried. The lump is on the same side as where I had an abscess removed recently. It's red and inflamed on the outside and tender to touch. Wondering what it could be, thanks .

It could be residual collection with added inflammation. Try taking some antibiotic and anti inflammatory medication for few days. If it subsides then there is nothing to worry. If it does not then you should have yourself examined by a surgeon.

How the cancer cells produced in our body can be destroyed without the help of cemo?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cell grow in our body and are routinely shed off as they grow old and replaced by new cells. This production and shedding off is regulated by genes which control it's number. Whenever this becomes disbalanced then production may be more than shedding off and cells grow uncontrolled. This may be due to faulty genes which is triggered by some carcinogens like tobacco, pollution, pesticides, industrial affluent, radiation exposure, viral infection etc Cancer is treated by combination of surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy etc.

Dear Doctor, I'm suffering from lymph nodes in my throat since last 2 months. I have taken many antibiotics for 2 months. Now after Ct neck I am taking Augmentn. Is is sufficient r they curable?

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
Augmentin is a good antibiotic, but if I understand the problem you have recurrent acute tonsillitis. Pl consult your ent specialist for his opinion regarding surgical removal of your tonsils. They are not liely to be cancerous, but a proper examination is needed to rule that out.

If doctor advised you to remove fibroadenoma with operation then get operation for that because it can cause harmful effect in future. Cause exactly not known but estrogen hormone play an important role in formation of fibroadnoma. If menses are irregular then consult to doctor for that.

I am having multiple fibroadenoma in both breasts, which are very small. I had undergone surgery for fibroadenoma removal four times in the past approximately 6 years ago, which were bigger in size. I am having a doubt that" is this fibroadenoma will become cancerous tumor in the future and is there any diet restrictions to get it reduced. Can you please clarify my doubt.

PGDMLS, PGDHHM, LLB, PhD Surgery, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Gurgaon
Generally fibroadenomas do not turn cancerous. However, self examination on a monthly basis is recommended. In case you notice any change in their character or there is bloody discharge from nipple, general surgeon would examine and order usg and / or fnac besides other tests. Then depending on the results further action is planned. There is no need to remove all fibroadenomas,
