I am suffering for blood cancer what type of medicine and exercise I have to take and do.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Sir, you have to take chemotherapy under supervision of medical or hemato oncologist according to type of leukaemia. Blood cancer patients are immunocompromised so must take care of avoiding any kind of infection. No aggressive exercises should be done while on treatment however you can practice yoga, breathing exercises and mild work out,must not exhaust yourself as vigorous exercises can cause spontaneous bleed if platelets are low.

It's a grade 3 tumour with size more than 3 cm. If mastectomy done and no lymph nodes positive patient does not need radiotherapy. However triple negative are aggressive cancers and for these chemotherapy is a must for any tumour greater than 0.5cm in size. You should complete all the prescribed doses of chemotherapy and be on regular follow up. That gives a best chance for cure/control.

I am 47 year and I take RMD (gutkha) from past 18 years regularly. Now I am worrying whether I may affect with cancer like disease. I would like to have through checkup for this. What should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, first and foremost, quit gutkha from now to keep away cancer. You can get a detailed clinical examination done by ent surgeon or oncologist to rule out any ulceration, abnormal growth in even premalignant conditions like white patch or reddish patch, erythroplakia, reduced mouth opening or submucosal fibrosis. You can also take cancer preventive medicines or food rich in antioxidants. Preventive oncology department is available in oncology hospitals to screen cancers before appearance of symptoms.

Kidney Cancer

The two kidneys are located one below the liver, the other below the stomach on either side of the spine. They filter wastes from the blood stream discharge them from the body in shape of urine. The most common type of kidney cancer originates in the epithelial cell lining the renal tubules. It can spread usually throught the blood stream the lymphatic system. A few types of kidney cancer arise in the kidney's pelvis the sac forming the upper part of the ureter these resemble the bladder cancer. Fibrosarcoma is the rare type of kidney cancer that develops in the renal capsule the fibrous fatty web encasing the kidney.
 The early sign of the kidney cancer are blood in the urine the later symptoms include a pain or a lump in the kidney region. Transverse or perpendicu lar fissure. Smoking cigarrettes, pipe cigars is strongly as sociated with developing kidney cancer. Even the smoke arising from burning of coal can give rise to this type of cancer.

Skin Cancer - Can Viagra Be The Cause?

Skin Cancer - Can Viagra Be The Cause?

Sildenafil (Viagra), whose function is to inhibit a substance called Phosphodiestarase-5 or PDE5 - was initially used only for the treatment of angina pectoris (a cardiovascular problem) and pulmonary hypertension. Incidentally, it was discovered that it could help the issue of erectile dysfunction too, and thus became hugely popular in the late 1990s. The little blue pill, as it was called, ruled more than 50% of the sexual dysfunction market for more than 15 years. However, as its popularity and usage increased, so did the scientific information about this drug, and now there is an increased speculation that it could be contributing to skin cancer, specifically melanoma. This is considered as one of the most dangerous forms of skin cancer and so the safety of Viagra sildenafil came into question.

Research has shown that users of Viagra sildenafil are at a higher risk for developing melanoma. There are reports stating that about 45 million men are at an increased risk of developing melanoma due to associated Viagra sildenafil use. The risk of developing melanoma was found to increase in men using ED drugs by 21%. Though there is no conclusive proof as yet that sildenafil is the cause, research is increasingly pointing out its role in melanoma. For example, PDE5 inhibitors (sildenafil, tadalafil, vardenafil) are known to promote melanin synthesis, which may exacerbate melanoma development.

The analysis of biochemical pathways of this correlation suggests that Viagra sildenafil triggers a special biochemical action involving the growth-stimulating cGMP (cyclic guanosine monophosphate (an intracellular signaling molecule) which in turn promotes the growth of malignant melanoma. In normal cases, the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) regulates the cGMP preventing any adverse cellular activity. Sildenafil inhibits the production of this enzyme, and potentiates a specific cGMP-related biochemical mechanism (called cGMP-cGKI pathway) , and thereby contributes to malignant melanoma. This has been proven to happen in mice and is yet to be proven in humans.

However, there are also reports which suggest that this does not happen due to Viagra sildenafil per se, but due to greater exposure to sun, which even otherwise increases the chances of skin cancer in general, and melanoma in particular. The countering theories also say that the population in which skin cancer was detected, comprised mostly of high income individuals who spent a significant amount of time holidaying on beaches and are not connected to the extensive use of Viagra per se. 

Therefore, though there is a correlation that has been established, there is no definite proof that Viagra sildenafil causes skin cancer. It is however, advisable to use ED drugs after medical consultation. If a patient has a genetic predisposition to develop melanoma, it is advisable to seek medical advice before the use of ED drugs. Occasional use should not be harmful. Also, when going out in the sun, limiting exposure to direct sun and UV protection should be managed too. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.
