BHMS

Dear lybrate user fibroadenoma of breast in females may be dueto trauma, infection, sometimes idiopathic in nature. I advise you to use homoeopathic medicine for the treatment- conium 1000/3dose at 15-15 minute intervals. Phytolacca 30/tds.

My teenage girls want to use nail polish, but I have heard that many nail polishes contain formaldehyde and can cause cancer. Is it safe for my daughters to use it?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Now a days most renowned brands do not use formaldehyde, though once in a while it's okay to use, we do not see too many cancers linked to nail polish usage. It is definitely of concern for the workers working in nail paint factories, who are in chemical contacts in many ways

How cancer occurs and how can we know that. What are the tips to identify and how we can cure that. Is there any cure for cancer?

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Cancer is a manufacturing defect when new cells are being formed. But this defect has a unique capacity to defy the body's immunity and multiply uncontrollably. When our body's systems are constantly renewing themselves after wear and tear by creating new cells, sometimes somethings go wrong and a defective cell is formed. Body's immunity identifies a bad cell and removes it. But when this step is skipped they keep on growing first locally in some organ and then by spreading through either lymph channels or blood stream. Based on whether the cells are growing at one place or have spread to other places the symptoms change. Locally it is either due to any lump / swelling of crores of cancer cells or due to intereference of these cells in the organ's function. For example cancer in liver cannot be easily felt from above as swelling, but it can cause symptoms like indigestion or jaundice due to interference in liver's function of helping digestion. A breast cancer on the other hand usually presents as a lump in breast or axilla. The best way a person can do, is to identify and respect all the symptoms they have, which persist or are unusual. Some good habits like breast self examination are useful in identifying a symptomless early stage cancer. Cure is a word which is used with a very high caution. Cancer is defined by two most important characteristics - metastasis i. E. Spreading to other places different than site/organ of origin, and recurrence. Few cancer cells usually remain dormant after completion of initial treatment and then re grow after some time. There are many reason and factors helping it or acting against it. So cure is a word usually not used in cancer. And that's why patients are kept on strict surveillance after treatment for 5-10 years. Experts in medical fraternity believe that a patient surviving for more than 5 years may be called cured. But there are many patients who recur with same disease even after 5 years, 10 years even more than that. The goal of treatment of cancer is to improve survival and give best quality of life possible to each patient. In medicine always is always wrong and never is never right.

Hi My cousin suffering from cancer in pancreas. And she have too much pain. What will do.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user treatment depends upon the etent of disease in the pancreas. If surgery not possible combned pain killers along with suitable chemotherapy and adjunctive radiotherapy will shrink the disease and reduce the pain. This will also increase the survival time of the patient.

My father has cancer of 3 stage in eating pipe but we can't do operation any other solution do you all.

MBBS, MD, CCEPC, FISSP, OBS, NFPM
Oncologist, Delhi
Stage 3 cancer may require chemo - radiation. But All cancers can not be treated by chemo radiation. Chemo may not benefit in stage 4 cancer. Recent research tells that unnecessary chemo may reduce quality & life span too. Take Pain treatment from proper qualified Interventional pain specialist doctor. Pain definitely can be controlled / treated at any stage of cancer. Pain relief needs dedicated pain management treatment usually offered by Pain specialist doctors. ACCN is proud to have one of the best pain specialist doctors of India. Pain management and cancer treatment goes side by side. Demand a pain free cancer treatment. Can further discuss it in detail with me on phone or over internet.

Dear sir, if for past 10years you have lumps it must be benign but you have to be clinically seen by a physician to rule out any infective cause. You can also meet us in our clinics.
