I had giant cell tumor at the neck of proximal femur. Surgery is performed within bone graft. Then hip spica is applied for 3 months. But after 5 months of operation local recurrence has started. What is the cause of it? Is hip replacement approval for me? By which process local recurrence is stopped? From where we get best treatment for it?

It is a tough disease to control. It can recur in anybody. We are routinely doing Brachytherapy along with surgery to improve the results. Right now hip replacement is the surgery of choice but there is no guarantee that it will not recur again!

Dear lybrate-user, it is necessary to know how many times you had blood through nose. It may be simply because of a small wound in the nostril caused by your finger due to dryness of the nose. If there is nothing such and the bleeding repeats get a simple blood examination done. Only first bleed there seems to be nothing to worry.

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.

Pap Smear - All You Need To Know About It

Pap Smear - All You Need To Know About It

A Pap Smear is a screening test done to to test for occurrence of uterine cancer. Carried out in a quick and simple way to extract a sample, the sample is collected from the cervix area of a woman during a pelvic exam. The examination of the sample takes place under a microscope thereafter to find abnormalities that can point towards cancer and pre cancer changes.

There are many reasons why women should get a pap smear screening done:

1. Women who are HIV positive should get this test done regularly so as to detect any anomalies in the cervix. This condition usually comes with higher risk of infections and cancer, which is why regular screening is required.

2. Age is also another factor and women over the age of 30 should go through an annual screening on a compulsory basis. This is also true for women who have been through pregnancy and child birth.

Preparing for a Pap Smear: To prepare for a pap smear test, you need to ensure that you are not menstruating at the time. Also, you may want to avoid sexual activity just before the test so as to get the most accurate readings. During the process, remember to stay calm and relax your body physically.

Procedure: The pap smear procedure is a quick one that might be only slightly uncomfortable. This test is usually carried out on the examination table at the gynecologist's clinic. The legs will need to be spread and placed in stirrups. The doctor will insert a speculum to hold open the vaginal opening so that the spatula can be inserted easily to take a sample from the area. This sample of the cells will be tested in a lab after due preservation.

Test Results: The test results can either be normal or abnormal. An abnormal result does not point at the presence of cancer. Rather it can simply mean that abnormal cells exist in the cervix. The doctor may ask you to go through these tests and screening more frequently so as to study the anomalies in a more detailed manner.

As rightly advised by the other doctor, you need to take proper precautions before taking the blood sample. If its persistently high, then you need further evaluation. The symptoms you are having is because of increased prolactin levels in your body. The cause can be a small tumour in the brain, certain kinds of medications etc. An endocrinologist will help you with medicines to control the level of prolactin. If there is a treatable cause, then that should be treated by surgery.

Dear sir, if only one ovary is removed and the other one is normal with healthy uterus then there are good chances of having normal fertility. She has to be on regular follow up to ensure that tumour is not relapsing.

Unfortunately radiation treatment causes short and long term side effects. RD can damage blood vessels that nourish muscles, nerves, and bones that can result in a progressive condition called "radiation fibrosis syndrome", which causes a variety of complications affecting nerve, muscles, and bones.

What are the causes of cancer and what are its symptoms and and what are its effect on humans?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is caused by some abnormal signal which usually control the growth of the cells. They are triggered by some carcinogens like tobacco, pollution, pesticides, industrial affluent, radiation exposure etc. They usually present as lump, mostly painless, unexplained weight loss, fever, anaemia, fatigue, non healing ulcer, difficulty in swallowing, altered bowel habits, bleeding etc. When there is uncontrolled growth of cells they start exausting body resources causing weakness, fatigue and organ failure and then start moving to other organs and effect their function aswell.

Though pt1, n0 is stage one cancer which after your surgery is now completely removed. As far as post operative radiation is concerned, it is given to reduce the chances of recurrence. However according to the present knowledge we have there is no advantage of radiation in stage 1 cancer. Having said that, there is a risk factor called lymph vascular invasion which is present in your case and sometimes in some cases, there is also something called perineural invasion present. Moreover in head neck cancers tongue malignancy is the most tricky. Hence some oncologist prefer radiation after surgery.

Homeopathy in Prostate Problem

DHB
Homeopath, Sagar
Homeopathy in Prostate Problem

The prostate gland is a very important gland in the male reproductive system. It is responsible for producing around 30% of the fluid which comprises semen. While the statement that homeopathy cannot treat problems in the prostate such as prostate cancer is true, it is untrue that prostate gland enlargement cannot be treated by homeopathy.

Here are the most common homeopathic remedies for prostate gland enlargement and what are the medicines best suited for it:

  1. Baryta carb: Baryta carb is one of the best homeopathic remedies for prostate gland enlargement in the elderly. Common conditions which may indicate that Baryta carb is the best remedy for your prostate gland enlargement patient include degenerative diseases such as losing memory, cardiovascular problems and other problems besides losing memory in the cerebral system. 
  2. Digitalis: Digitalis is mostly used when the patient suffering from prostate gland enlargement also suffers from heart problems. Digitalis does make the pulse weak, slow or even intermittent, however it is worth note that oedema may also occur. 
  3. Staphysagria: Staphysagria is one of the best homeopathic medicines for various pains which occur in the urinary system in addition to prostate gland enlargement. Common pains which staphysagria cures include pain while urinating, burning sensation in the urethra, feeling like the bladder is not completely emptied as well as pain in the urethra when one is not urinating.
  4. Conium: Frequent urination is yet another symptom of prostate gland enlargement. This problem is caused by an injury to the area where the prostate glands are located. This injury hardens the glands.  The passage of urine will be extremely difficult with urine starting to pass and then stopping again. There is also dribbling of urine after completion of urinating.
  5. Sabal Serrulata: Sabal Serrulata is one of the most popular homeopathic medicines for prostate gland enlargement with many patients having consumed it reported great results. It works for most causes of prostate gland enlargement as well.

Even though homeopathy is supposed to have no side effect, it is still imperative that you consult your doctor about which ones to take.

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, the biopsy report is indicative of invasion to the lamina propria. But, can you doubly check with your doc if there is any invasion into the lymphatics too? so far as I know, such cases are treated with bcg vaccination, assuming there is no lymph node invasion. Additionally, given to understand that its a high grade carcinoma, there always is a high risk of metastasis despite a tur-bt surgery. Hence, the need to aggressively manage it, to the extent of even going for a full bladder cystectomy should it so demand, to help avert a futuristic metastasis and improve prognosis. Anyways, do clarify the above-mentioned through an expert second opinion with an oncologist specializing in urology cancers. From a dietary standpoint, try including more of fresh turmeric, carrots, tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, green tea (twice daily) etc all besides other leafy greens. Pomegranate juice & vitamin c (can try'amalaki') helps too in this condition. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best to you.
