Dear sir, cancer is a disease related to genetic causes, which is mostly modified by lifestyle. Even if we find out the faulty gene in a person it's Not possible to modify the genes atleast now. So changing lifestyle remains the only viable option apart from vaccination for few infective causes like HPV related cancers.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking clarification. Immunotherapy basically aims at improving one's immune system function to fight diseases including cancer. Its otherwise known as biologic therapy and can be classified as either active, passive or hybrid. Stem cell therapy on the other hand, uses stem cells for treatment of diseases including cancer. To exemplify, bone marrow transplant (BMT), allogenic or autologous is essentially a stem cell therapy. Hope this clarifies. Take care. Sincerely

Penis Cancer: Facts, Symptoms, Causes and Diagnosis

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Nashik
Penis Cancer: Facts, Symptoms, Causes and Diagnosis

Penis cancer is a form of cancer which affects the penis. It can be caused due to poor hygiene, not being circumcised, HPV infection (human papillomavirus), engaging in coitus with many sexual partners and overuse of tobacco.

Facts about Penis Cancer:

  1. Malignant cancer cells start to form in the tissues of the penis.

  2. Redness, discharge, irritation, sores, lumps and bleeding is characterized by penis cancer.

  3. Treatment and prognosis usually depends on the stage, size and location of the tumor.

Symptoms of Penis Cancer:

  1. A lumpy feeling on the penis.

  2. Change in the color of an area in the penis.

  3. A part of the skin in the penis becoming thicker.

  4. A sore (ulcer) that can bleed.

  5. A velvety and reddish rash.

  6. Crusty and small bumps.

  7. Growths which are bluish- brown and flat.

  8. Smelly discharge of fluid under the penis-foreskin.

  9. Swelling can occur at the end of the penis where the foreskin usually ends.

  10. Lymph nodes in the groin area which spreads to the penis.

Diagnosing Penis Cancer:

  1. CAT Scan (CT Scan): This is a procedure in which detailed pictures of a particular area in your body is taken from different angles. A dye is swallowed or injected so that the organs are shown more clearly. This procedure is also called computerized axial tomography or computerized tomography.

  2. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): This procedure involves using radio waves, magnetic waves and a computer to make a picture of an area inside the body. A chemical called gadolinium is injected in the vein so that the cancer cells can show up bigger and brighter in the detailed picture.

  3. Ultrasound Exam: This procedure involves ultrasounds (high-energy sound waves) bounce of organs and internal tissues. This helps to detect the cancer cells. The echoes form a detailed picture of body tissues.

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

Pap Smear Test - Who Should Opt for it?

Regular medical checkups and tests can be very helpful in prevention of cancer and growth of malignant cells or tumours. With the increase in the rates of cervical cancer, gynaecological checkups are of utmost need. For effective cervical cancer prevention, Pap smear bears the maximum number of success rates.

Pap smear is a medical procedure that helps to detect cancer or signs of other cervical infections. The Pap smear test however cannot detect ovarian cell cancer or uterine cancer. It is known to detect changes only in the vaginal cells and cervical dysplasia. Cervical dysplasia refers to the growth of pre-cancerous cells.

How this test is conducted?
1. Pap smear is conducted when the woman is not menstruating.
2. An instrument called speculum is inserted into one’s vagina to be able to access the cervix more easily.
3. Pap smear involves the collection of sample cells from the outer cervix area.
4. Cervical brush is inserted into the speculum and the sample cells are collected.
5. Then, the samples are put on a glass slide for further evaluation.
6. The Pap smear procedure takes only a few minutes bu can prevent serious medical problems in the long run.
7. The Pap smear is not a painful procedure, though it may be slightly uncomfortable for a few minutes only.

Who can undergo Pap smear?
1. Women can undergo Pap smear procedures once they are of 21 years of age and are generally sexually active
2. Women can go for pap smears up to the age of 70
3. Pap smears should be conducted preferably every two or three years
4. Women aged 65 and above and who have had no abnormalities in the last three consecutive tests, may stop taking pap smears
5. Before undergoing the test, it is important to stop douching and using vaginal creams for at least 2 days.
6. If there has been a case of multiple and frequent change of sexual partners, then you must go for Pap smear frequently
7. Women with weak immune system and who bear the risk of HIV Aids
8. Women who are heavy smokers

I am 25 years old male. I went for a check up five months back for kidney stones. The doctor told me that your prostate is getting enlarged and asked me a question do you masturbate daily. I told yes. He asked me to stop it. Now my question is if I have enlarged prostate how do I cure without any side effects or naturally. I use to urinate nearly 20 times daily. I suspect it is because of enlarged prostate because my blood sugar is normal .Help me to out of this.

Hello- Frequent masturbation in young men is linked to higher risk of early prostate cancer, so yes Prostrate health can be affected badly with over masturbation. Its better to start some Urogenital aphrodisiacs of ayurveda, it will surely help you recover the masturbation induced prostrate enlargement in a natural way. Don't waste your time further and consult a ayurvedic sexologist ASAP.

Did a master health check. Ultrasound report says 'Bulky uterine cervix' The pap smear test says 'Atypical Squamous cells of undetermined significance with inflammation. Repeat after controlling inflation Microscopy: Satisfactory for evaluation Transformation zone is absent, inflammation is intense, no organism/ reactive changes, Atrophy present, few cells with mild nuclear enlargement seen. What do these results mean? Does it indicate cervical cancer? What next?

Hi Lybrate user, it doesn't show cancer but you need to monitor every 6 month PAP smear and get one special test done so as to understand completely how much is the risk.

My sister age 49 operated for ovarian cancer in may 2015 than six cycle of chemo ended in oct 2015 ca .ca125 in july was 120 .now it is 8600. Pet is ok.

Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon, Mohali
Rise in Ca-125 is a worrying factor. I am surprised the Pet-CT is normal. I think one of the 2 reports is wrong. Get the Pet-CT re-reported. Get Ca-125 repeated. If still same reports wait for a month and get Ca-125 repeated. If coming down or normal-then nothing to be done. If rising further chemotherapy with or without Pet-CT.

I'm 19 years old girl. I noticed blue and purple lines looking like veins on my right breast 3 months ago. Now my right breast is growing faster than left and sometime it's paining. I'm very depressed is there anything serious?

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Very few women have completely symmetrical breasts. It is common for one breast to be slightly larger than the other. If one breast suddenly gets bigger than the other, it could signal a problem such as an infection, cyst, fibroid or even cancer. Please do a mammography and go for a physical examination to your Gynecologist.

Dear, since doctor has already seen it you should undergo the investigation. It may be only a benign growth which needs to be removed. Cancer is a remote possiblity unless proven otherwise.
