Hi sir my sister she have cervical cancer & injection gadosil vaccine giving this injection it will affect fr breast feeding milk smells badly baby s nt having milk.

Is your sister already suffering from cancer. If yes then Gardasil vaccine is not of use as it cannot cure already developed cancer. It is useful when given just before the lady becomes sexually active. Secondly, Gardasil can be safely given in pregnancy. The smell in milk could be due to other causes. You can show your Gynaecologist for that. But if she has cervical cancer then she needs treatment like surgery radiation and/or chemotherapy from an Oncologist based on the stage of her disease.

Cancer occurring in people which are not using tabacoo and alcoholic substance what's the reason behind this?

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Tobacco and alcohol are causes of a few of many cancers. Only nails and hair don't get cancer. Rest all organs get cancers. The basic reason for a cancer is a genetic mutation that is defect in genes that either causes excess multiplication or prevent natural death of cells. Such an uncontrolled growth is cancer. Why these genetic mutations occur is difficult to decipher and no one cause can be blamed for it. But there are risk factors. Like no pregnancy or a delayed one is a risk factor for breast cancer. Infection by human papilloma virus can cause cancers of cervix, anal canal, oral cavity, etc. Exposure to radiation can cause cancers. Exposure to environmental toxins and uv rays from sun can cause cancers.

Why Is Cancer the Biggest Threat to India

PGD IN ULTRAASONOGRAPHY, Non invasive cardiology course, MD - Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Narnaul
Why Is Cancer the Biggest Threat to India

Cancer is the one of the biggest threat to the young Indian population because of the factors that cause cancer, but also due to late detection. However, certain bad habbits and the factors increase the risk of cancer in India.

Causes of cancer in India:

  1. Overpopulation and the problem of nutrition: As per records, India is the world's third most populous country. However, it lacks in resources to feed the multiplying number of mouths. Nutrition plays a key role in deciding the quality of a person's life. Nutrition has therefore emerged as an essential branch of research and medical care in the last few decades. Lack of nutrition directly results in weakened immunity. Your body becomes prone to diseases, some of which can be fatal. To fight off cancer cells, one must have a strong immune system that comes from the right kind of nutrition.
  2. Smoking is a recurrent habit among children and adults: Smoking can cause cancer. Every cigarette packet reads the same warning messages but it doesn't actually deter smokers in any way. Smoking is prevalent among people of all age groups in India. From poor children to conscious educated adults, all are seen smoking.
  3. A Tropical country and its woes: Tropical countries are known to face the wrath of the sun. While most places in central, western, partly eastern and southern India experience extremes of temperature in summer, other places with moderately hot summers are not exempted from the harmful UV rays. Ultraviolet rays can be very harmful for one's skin, as it can cause skin cancer. Indians have a high amount of melanin, which protects them against sun rays, but the threat exists nonetheless.
  4. The concept of fast food: A global economy has opened avenues awaiting your attention in the realm of food. To suit the tones and moods of a fast life, fast food has been made available to you. We take pride in consuming things that can be prepared in an instant: instant noodles, soups and even curries. Packaged food and junk food are sources of cancer cells.
  5. Lack of awareness regarding the most common types of cancer: Breast and cervical cancer are the two most common types of cancer eating away the health of Indians. The problem lies in being unaware about the root causes, symptoms and treatment procedures related to these kinds of cancer. Social repression turns health concerns into matters of insignificance. Women fear social alienation after coming in the open with their problems.

What are the symptoms of cancer how often it can cause because of smoking m suffering from heavy cough is that the symptoms?

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. Cancer can manifest in different ways. If you are a smoker and have long term cough then better get evaluated by detailed examination and investigations like chest x ray. Stop smoking before it causes you any more harm. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, first and foremost, I would advise that you continue with treatment as advised by your urologist and see for symptomatic improvements, if any. Should you not feel better still, you can connect for the needful alternative medicine traction. From a dietary standpoint, do ensure that you include fresh tomatoes and turmeric in your diet on a daily basis. Spicy, oily, greasy, fatty, sweets and other high calorie foods including fast foods etc all are best avoided. Stay well hydrated and keep up an active and streamlined lifestyle. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.
