There is very less chance of 1% that coffee or tea if taken daily for a pretty long time can lead to cancer of an organ like stomach / oeshophagus.

Doctors said, he is in last stage of cancer, it began in his throat and spread inside the stomach, he neglected his health and now he is unable to swallow even water, he was under treatment in Tata cancer research hospital they also lost hope and said no to him, now tell me is there any hope left? Is there any charity or financial help because he and his family has bankrupt.

Cancer seems to have spread to other organs so it is a stage IV disease. You can do a gastrostomy or Peg for feeding and put him on best supportive care, providing him comfort and treating symptomatically. Beyond this, we would have to evaluate personally and see all the treatment records to advise further. There are NGOs which help in financial aids helping patients in completing treatment.

My mom suffering with overian cancer, her age is 65 years old. She can take the 6 chemotherapys, doctor suggested surgery but she is not interested. I have a small doubt that her age will support the surgery ? after chemo doctor not given any medical support, is it surgery is necessary or not. Pls give you are valuable suggestions.

The primary treatment of ovarian cancer is surgery. Whether surgery can be done or not, depends on many factors. If the tumor is inoperable due large size, it can be downsize by using chemotherapy. But after chemotherapy, surgery should be done. Survival of the patients treated without surgery is poor.

Hi sir. How to find out oral cancer in early stage? How much cost for cancer checkup? I used to chewing gutka, so I want to go for oral cancer checkup. Please help me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, oral cancers can be diagnosed in early stages by detailed examination of oral cavity by surgeon or ENT surgeon. You can also meet oncologist for same. Oral cancers can present as ulceration, growth, bleeding, difficulty in swallowing and eating etc. If needed they will advise necessary tests like direct laryngoscopy, ct scan, biopsy etc but only if needed and they find anything abnormal on examination.

Hi, In my right hand I have a round oval shape tumor, I am not sure what exactly it is but its easily visible, people ask questions when they see it. Its really embarrassing, I have avoided wearing half shirts and T- shirts because of this tumor. I want to get rid of it. What should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, we need to know the size, consistency and for how long it is present. If it is long standing then it may not be malignant, an fnac may help in knowing about the cause. It could be lipoma, schwannoma etc benign tumour and can be simply excised by a good surgeon or a plastic surgeon for better cosmetic results. Don't get embarrassed, get it removed.

DNB, MBBS

mouth cancer may present with premalignant or precancerous conditions like white patch or leukoplakia, reddish patch, difficulty in opening mouth or submucosal fibrosis. these are warning signs for mouth cancers.frank cancers may present as nonhealing ulcers, growth lesions, bleeding from oral cavity, difficulty in swallowing or eating food etc. most common risk factor is chewing tobacco or zarda. even chewing supari which is kept for long time in mouth may irritate soft mucosa of mouth and lead to cancerous growth. any sharp tooth or ill fitting dentures should be treated by dentists. one should eat lots of fruits and vegetables, natural sources of antioxidants and lycopene to prevent cancer and if one suffers from it then it should be treated by surgery, chemotherapy radiation therapy as indicated.

Breast Cancer and Prevention

Research consistently shows that drinking alcohol does increase the risk for breast cancer. Alcohol can increase levels of estrogen and other hormones associated with breast cancer. Alcohol may also increase breast cancer risk by damaging the DNA in the cells

Prevention

Foods and Beverages with Vitamin D such as green tea pomegranate circumin and soy may have an anti carcinogenic effect. Curcurmin has recently been discovered to have a variety of benefits including its role in breast cancer prevention. Dietary intake of soy and atleast eight glasses of pure water daily will help control the risk of breast cancer.

I am an 18 years old boy and I have started smoking cannabis. I've read online that it is good for health in controlled quantities so is it right to go on this path. Does cannabis also cause cancer like tobacco products? Also it fine to smoke 3-4 joints a day. Will it affect me on a chronic basis?

Hi lybrate-user, cannabis smoking is injurious to health and you should try to abstain from it. It will slowly induce dependence and hamper your life. It will definitely have very harmful effects if you consume it on a chronic basis. So, its my advice and request to you to not spoil your entire life and even suggest your friends to stay away from this slow poison.

I have bilateral axillary lymphadenitis since 3 years and it increase in size with age. Now its more discomfort for me while sleeping. It cause intense pain when axilla pressed against bed and pain increases during menses. Also I felt pain in may tail of breast both side. And also my LMP is not one. It fluctuates from the time of menarche. I think menstrual cycle is of 35 days. Now my question is should I operate to remove the swellings or continue medical treatment. Can it recur? Can it become malignant if I do not operate? Is there any complication if I ignored now?

Your symptoms suggest axillary tail of the breast extending in to arm pits. If it is very painful they should be removed. As far as malignancy is concerned they are breast tissue and have the same chance of developing malignancy as the rest of the breast. You should also get fnac done before planning for surgery.

I'm 18 year old boy. I had a CT scan recently. For my nasal polyp removal operation. I heard that one CT scan can expose radiation as 200 chest x-ray. Is it true ? Will it increase the possibility for cancer?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
yes, the radiation exposure from one ct scan is many times to that of an xray. and it is also true that excessive radiation exposure can induce cancers. but there is also a limit ro radiation exposure in a year the body can ssfely tolerate. 1 or 2 ct scans done properly in a year for diagnosing a problem, do not increase your risk of developing cancer significantly. so don't worry.
