What is cause, symptoms and preventing ways of cancer and explain the history of the disease?

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. Types of Cancer There are more than 100 types of cancer. Types of cancer are usually named for the organs or tissues where the cancers form. For example, lung cancer starts in cells of the lung, and brain cancer starts in cells of the brain. prevention is not possible, symptom depends on the organ involved. thanks

Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if you can feel some lump/swelling then you may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. Wearing a well fitting bra may help.

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,

Yes breast cancer may be inherited. About 1 in 220 breast cancer patients may be having inheritable breast cancer which puts family members at a high risk of breast or ovarian cancer.

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.

I am 19 years old. I took treatment for nasopharyngeal carcinoma of radiation and chemotherapy. Radiation 35 sittings in month of may-june. chemotherapy 3 cycles. From past six months I am not able to eat solid food. Salivary glands have to reactivate. Now what should I do. From when can I eat and how to reactivate my salivary glands.

Usually within two to three months time the salivary functions are regained to a great extent post treatment, however it all depends od the extent of disease and nodal status and dose of radiation to major salivary glands. Meanwhile you can try with artificial salivary preparation like mouth wet /aqwet spray to keep your mouth lubricated. You must gargle regularly and take steam inhalation to reduce inflammation. Chewing gums, sour food, chewing rubbery materials some times augments salivary secretions. Always take solid food accompanied by some liquid drinks like buttermilk, juices, water, milk etc so that it may not get stuck in throat.
