Does coffee cause cancer, and if yes, what are the symptoms. And what are the preventive measures to be taken. Can anyone fall prey to this disease.

There is no evidence that coffee causes cancer. Smoking definitely causes cancer but no such association with coffee.

My uncle recently have been detected with food pipe cancer. Presently he is under treatment of radiation only as chemo he is/his body not able to sustain. Cricoid region had been affected. Is there any other option of treatment.

dear sir,for upper third of esophagus the treatment of choice is radiation chemotherapy as surgery is not technically possible. Because of his advanced stage he is advised radical radiation therapy which is a correct line of treatment. you can also get a PEG or gastrostomy done for temporary feeding as radiation to this region may cause esophagitis and difficulty is swallowing but of course it is not mandatory.

Dear Himanshu, Congratulations on your recovery. Normally the hair growth after chemotherapy is very thick and healthy. You can try Minoxidil. It commes as a solution. Please put 1-2 drops in oil and apply. Don't put more than that as it causes headache. All the Best.

Skin cancers are superficial cancers caused by abnormal growth of skin cells. Leading to symptoms like prolonged ulceration, bleeding lump, mole etc it is generally treatable by surgery and /or radiation therapy. Being superficial they are picked up fast by aware patients.

I have been operated for Papillary thyroid carcinoma and doing good now, I have been on Eltroxin for almost a month and half now. Is it ok to take Eltroxin at different times? I have been taking this at 8 AM or 10 AM or 9 AM on empty stomach due to busy schedules and managing a gap of 1 hour to eat or drink.

Mr. lybrate-user thanks for the query. Thyroxine hormone is a very sensitive chemical and the quantity is in micro grams. So it is absolutely essential to take it early morning around 6 am or so on empty stomach. Nothing should be taken after that for at least 1 to 1 and half hour. This has to be adhered to very strictly. Thanks.
