Is cancer a genetic disease? As because three of my aunt that is my mother's sisters had cancer and all of them are own sister. Please help me with this.

Some cancers have strong genetic background such as breast cancer and cancer of uterus. What cancers your relatives had? genetic testing may be indicated to identify the genetic mutation after I get the detailed information of the cancer in family. This will help in very early diagnosis of possible cancer.

Hi, My father is 74 years old a...
Hello. I'm sorry to hear about your father's condition. Prostrate enlargement is seen in elderly males, and its symptoms are often gruesome if not kept in check. Most prostatic enlargements are due to temporary prostatitis (infection in the prostrate) or a benign prostrate hypertrophy (bph). Bph is enlargement of the prostrate gland around the urethra which restricts the outflow of urine, hence resulting in the symptoms of urgency, inadequacy and frequency. Every patient has to be thoroughly evaluated to rule out prostrate cancer. Psa alone is not a very reliable test. A ultrasound abdoment/transrectal ultrasound along with post voidal residual urine volume has to be measured. This will help you diagnose and decide the management schedule.

Since few days a nerve bump like structure occur in her hand something like tumour. I'm very upset. What is this? Does cancer can occur in hand also? Please suggest me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam it could be schwannoma or ganglion, usually benign and can be excised. There can be malignant tumours as well in hand like skin cancers, fibrosarcoma or bone tumours. Most likely the one you are suffering from may be benign and can be observed or excised, but once you show it to a clinician to be really sure.

Is it possible to know now whether I am going to get some disease like cancer or something else in the future? If there are any such tests then how much do they cost approximately.

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Prediction of getting a disease is difficult task. There are a few tests available which tell you about disease you might be more prone to procure than other individuals, but how much more is difficult to say. Such genetic tests are available with few labs in major cities. Cost can vary from 15 to 20k. But as of now, in mg opinion, it is better to spend time, energy, mind and money on. Keeping a good health rather than finding the rare possibility of disease one may have. Also one may procure a disease that is not found out on genetic test, because the validity and efficacy of such tests is still under studied and in its infancy.
