Alcohol cause cancer?

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist
Ask Free Question
High rates of most cancers are seen in alcoholic people, especially those of the head, neck, esophagus, stomach, liver, colon, lungs, and breast tissue. An enhanced risk for breast malignancies might be seen with as few as two drinks per day, especially in women with family histories of this disease. The association with cancer probably reflects alcohol-related immune system suppression and the direct effects of ethanol on mucosal membranes. The heightened rates of malignant tumors in alcoholic people remain significant even when the possible effects of smoking and poor nutrition are considered, and this is the second leading cause of premature death in alcohol-dependent men and women.

Chemotherapy diet requires a well balanced high protein diet. Try and not eat any raw food. Cut down on sugar intake as much as possible, coz cancer cells feed on sugar.

Ayurveda is an ancient system of Indian medicine wherein it is believed that when there is an imbalance in one of the three doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha), diseases start to occur. The three doshas represent three physiological states of human beings. Here are some well-known Ayurvedic herbs which are known to cure various cancers such as colon cancer and other cancers of the digestive system:

1. Ashwagandha
Ashwagandha is an adaptogen (a natural stress reliever), the reason why it is used to treat many diseases. Ashwagandha is able to inhibit the growth of tumorous cells and even slows down the growth of cancerous cells.

2. Garlic
Garlic is a very powerful herb in treating cancer and it has been in use since ages now. Raw garlic, garlic juice and even soups made of garlic have all been used to treat cancer in people of all ages. In addition to colon cancer and other cancers of the digestive system, garlic can even cure brain cancer without harming the brain's good cells. This is also another medication which can be used with a large variety of illnesses.

3. Celandine
Celandine is a type of a poppy seed. It is known to treat colon cancer well as well as many other diseases due to the fact that it boosts the immune system. Asthma and atherosclerosis are some of the other diseases treated by this herb.

4. Turmeric
Turmeric is one of the best herbs in the world when it comes to treating various cancers. The circumins present in turmeric make the cancer cells destroy themselves.

5. Green tea
Green tea is yet another healing remedy for various diseases. It has been said that green tea does not only have the ability to stop cancerous cells from growing, but it can also kill the cancerous cells without harming your body greatly. Green tea also helps in curing brain tumors completely.

Hello I am from dhaka, bangladesh. My mother (54 years) was diagnosed with lung cancer 4th stage (metastatic adenocarcinoma) one month ago. She was going through dry cough for like 3 months so further investigation like biopsy confirmed it's lung cancer. But we didn't rely on our country's (bangladesh) report. So we went to apollo specialty hospital, chennai, india an ran pet ct scan followed by tapping as she had fluid in her lungs and then again biopsy. This time during the biopsy, my mother caught pneumothorax. So the doctor admitted her to emergency and inserted a tube in her backside. They called it drainage system. This will let the fluid come out of her lungs along with air that entered through pneunothorax. They kept the tube for 3/4 days and then released it. Now the doctor asked to do the chemotherapy. I get scared whenever I hear about chemotherapy. Is it the only way out? will this chemotherapy be effective for a long time? I did few researches over internet about the survival rate of lung cancer patient and it seems to be very low. Now I will write you the comments of pet ct scan and biopsy. 1. Pet ct scan: a) hypermetabolic primary mass in lingula b) hypermetabolic pleural metastases with effusion in left hemithorax. C) hypermetabolic metastatic paraaortic with non fdg avid left hilar nodes. D) no other demonstrable metabolically active disease in whole body survey. F) imaging is suggestive of bronchogenic malignancy in lingula segment of left lung with nodal and pleural metastases (t2an2m1a- stage iv) 2. Biopsy report: a) biopsy from left lung mass: consistent with adenocarcinoma, grade ii: ct guidedbiopsy from left lung mass. So what do you think, is it controllable? it is very worse? I want her to live. What kind of chemotherapy would you suggest? apart from chemo, is there any other way to treat or control it along with the chemo? I heard there is some drug called terceva. Internet says it treated their fourth stage cancer. I don't know but I am seeking your help regarding this

Thanks for providing good patient profile. From your reports, the only site of distant metastasis is paraaortic lymph nodes. Yes you are right that stage iv lung cancer has a poor prognosis. However a certain subpopulation of these patients still have a chance of favorable outcome. However this depends on number of things 1. Histology (adenocarcinoma favorable) 2. General condition of patient (performance status) 3. Presence of egfr mutations (favorable prognosis) 4. Absence of solid organ involvement (good prognosis). So egfr mutation study is next step. You have also asked any alternative option to chemotherapy. Yes there is a option. That is erlotinib (tarceva). But the tumor has to be egfr positive. Erlotinib is now recommended for egfr positive metastasic adenocarcinoma of lung (without any concomitant chemotherapy) until progression of the disease.

Please give an advise as Its hard to find doctors treating blood disorders. Thanks and Regards

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your father. Is your father's treatment basis the Gmall protocol, already over? As far as I understand, targeted therapy with 'Rituximab' is used (often) along with chemotherapy for better clinical outcomes. This may be used either as a part of the initial treatment or as a part of the 2nd line treatment regimen. However, the decision to go for a targeted therapy is to be taken by your father's consulting physician/ haemato-oncologist, as would deem contextually appropriate. Above-mentioned apart, you may also evaluate options of an autologous/ allogenic stem cell transplant, once remission is achieved, with your haemato-oncologist. A stem cell transplant, if feasible in your father's case, may possibly help improve disease free survival. Should it require, please proceed for a second opinion suitably here. Simultaneously, also do note that an integrative treatment with natural/ alternative medicines is likely to influence outcomes too. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, it seems that his liver function has deranged considerably, and hence there is fluid (ascites) deposit in the abdomen with edematous swelling of legs too. Weight loss, weakness, anorexia, ascitis, edema etc all are associated with the advanced stage of the disease. At this juncture, your uncle does require appropriate palliative care preferably in an hospital setting which can be of help in alleviating symptoms, and avoiding complications for some time. Simultaneously, you may please connect with me in private for a treatment with natural medicines that may be of help in improving his quality of life. Do take care and all the very best.

Hi lybrate-user, commonly blood tests/ tumor markers, scans and biopsies are usually employed to diagnose cancer, with biopsy being the gold standard that clinches the diagnosis. The tests, as mentioned above, vary from cancer to cancer. However, your piles issue is mostly linked with your digestive issues / chronic constipation. For the time being, I would advise you to streamline your diet and lifestyle and stay relaxed. Focus mostly on leafy greens and fresh fibrous fruits including apples on a daily basis. Stay well hydrated, with at least 8 to 10 glasses of water on a daily basis. Avoid flesh foods completely for now. To get over stubborn constipation, if any, you can consume 1 tsp softovac powder duly mixed in a glass of warm drinking water, post dinner for the next 10 days. Consuming juice of bael fruit pulp also stabilizes digestion and cures constipation issues. Post toilet, you can sit in a bowl of cold water to which a tsp of dettol antimicrobial liquid has been added and mixed properly. Post that, use pilex ointment (as recommended) from himalaya. At the same time, get yourself clinically evaluated by a competent gi specialist who can examine your anus/ rectum with a proctoscope and evaluate the seriousness as appropriate. Take care and all the very best.
