Tips To Reduce Risks Of Cancer - Surgical Oncologist

Tips To Reduce Risks Of Cancer

We live in an age where every single individual, more or less, is exposed to the risk of cancer. It is probably an unfavorable lifestyle we lead that deprives us of good health. This might alarm many but considerable changes in lifestyle can help you realize cancer as a preventable disease. Cancer does not only make you undergo severe suffering but it also affects your friends and family. The pallor of misery spreads wider than you think.

1) Abstinence from tobacco

Consuming raw tobacco or smoking tobacco can be equally detrimental to your health. Tobacco increases your chances of contracting the disease. As is known, passive smoking can also affect your health adversely. Tobacco can be the potential cause behind cancer of the mouth, throat, larynx, lungs, oral cavity and even the pancreas. It might harm your kidneys and cervix. It is upon you to quit tobacco at the earliest possible. One should also try and persuade friends and relatives to give up smoking.

2) Abstinence from alcohol​

Complete abstinence from alcohol might be tough if you have already been ushered into your work-life, but it surely is possible. Drinking can propel consequences as serious as cancer of the stomach, pancreas, liver and the heart.

3) A balanced and nutritious diet

Deciding on a plant- based diet or a Mediterranean diet can aid your fight against the risk of cancer. A Mediterranean diet will involve green leafy vegetables, lots of fresh fruits, whole grains, mixed nuts, legumes and also the use of extra- virgin olive oil. Fish can be a safe bet but red meat should be avoided. One must also try to avoid processed meat as they tend to make you prone to the risk of cancer.

4) Immunization

Hepatitis B and HPV or Human papilloma virus vaccines are extremely necessary to protect you against the sexually transmitted types of cancer.

5) Exercise diligently

Did you think it was okay to have weaker muscles and bulging layers of fat? If yes, you probably have grown numb to the inadequacies you face in result. Unchecked fat can lead to obesity which further complicates health conditions. Metabolic activity differs from person to person. Regular exercising can help regulate metabolism according to the needs of your body. Physical exercise protects you against the risk of breast and colon cancer. Moderate or vigorous physical activity for 150 to 75 minutes a week respectively can reduce the risk of cancer.

Hi, My father was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer with bone met. PSA> 1,000 And Gleason 8 & 9. Have consulted a few renowned doctors in New Delhi but their suggested medications are different. Some suggest Caluran 50 while others Abiraterone prednisone. I need some hard facts to choose the best option. Thank you. - Surgical Oncologist
Oncologist, Mumbai
Your father has metastatic ca prostate. He requires hormonal therapy first- medical or surgical. Medical therapy includes 1 injection every 3 to 6 months and caluran 50 mg along with it. Surgical means castration (removing both testis by surgery). Depending on his response to hormonal therapy he can be planned for further management like chemo, abiraterone etc.

It may not be sign of blood cancer. If you are feeling something stuck in throat since long time then get a upper GI endoscopy done. Also get investigated for hemoglobin drop as it might be due to tumor bleeding sometimes so rule out possible causes of anaemia, bleeding.

My uncle has diagnosed with periampullary duodenum carcinoma. And doctor suggested chemotherapy. I heard chemotherapy shortens the life. So my question is What's the survival rate sir? And what are the precautions to be taken. As he had been a prolonged tobacco chewer, but since one month, he has left everything. And doctor suggested nicotine patch. - Surgical Oncologist
Oncologist, Mumbai
Survival depends on stage of carcinoma. Ideally the treatment for periampullary tumour is surgery in stage 1-3. Only if it has spreaded elsewhere in body (stage 4) or not operable then chemotherapy is given. Survival rate in stage 4 is dismal with 2 years survival rate of 30% and average survival being about 12-15 months.

My wife aged 34 years has a tendered left breast for one month. After mammography a cyst about 0.5 cm has seen. Is it the cause of tenderness or other cause. Can it be cancer. Please suggest. - Surgical Oncologist
Oncologist, Mumbai
Breast cyst can be a cause of pain but it's too small a size. Clear cyst are not cancerous but need to rule out there is no other echogenic particles in cyst nor bloody on aspiration of cyst.
