Dear lybrate-user, it is necessary to know how many times you had blood through nose. It may be simply because of a small wound in the nostril caused by your finger due to dryness of the nose. If there is nothing such and the bleeding repeats get a simple blood examination done. Only first bleed there seems to be nothing to worry.

In lungs cancer 4 stage chemotherapy or radiation therapy is possible.Please tell.

MBBS, DNB ( Radiation Oncology)
Oncologist, Mumbai
It depends on the general condition of the patient. Also stage 4 means usually palliation, so the intention is not cure, but a reasonable quality of life and if possible disease control. May be palliative chemotherapy if patient can tolerate and palliative radiation if the patient has painful bone metastasis or brain metastasis.

What is cancer. Symptoms of cancer. How can it be treated. Why it is so dangerous disease. How can we prevent this disease.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is abnormal uncontrolled growth of cells caused by some faulty gene which control the growth of cells. This faulty gene may be due to some injury to genes by chemicals, tobacco, radiation exposure, adulterated food, viruses, pollution, faulty food habits Etc. Currently available treatment modalities are surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy etc depending on organ affected, and stage of the disease. We can prevent by avoiding known carcinogens, healthy eating habits, exercise and go for regular health screening. this disease is dangerous due to unpredictable nature and nature of relapse post treatment.

My father was detected with localized prostate cancer last year and was followed by a heart attack later. His age is 61 years. He then have to undergo angioplasty with a non-drug eluting stent. Over one year has passed and his Stress test reports are excellent now as per cardiologist. Can he undergo a radical prostatectomy (prostate cancer surgery ) now or it will be risky for him to undergo surgery? Thank you.

Well one thing needs to be ruled out after one year gap is metastasis. So needs to undergo cect and bone scan if he is operable and pac fit then he can undergo the procedure otherwise hormonal/chemotherapy and performance status of patient is important it is slow growing tumour, if performance status is not good then hormonal therapy is advisable.

I'm 62years lady. Just diagnosed with 2A stage cancer in one breast n going to remove that breast. Please suggest is chemo compulsory in cancer for permanent cure.

MBBS, MS- Surgery , M.Ch - Surgical Oncology , FIAGES
Oncologist, Delhi
Treatment for breast cancer is multimodality. Surgery is mainstay with neoadjuvant or adjuvant chemotherapy, targetted therapy, radiation therapy and/or hormone therapy depending on individual case risk factors. Mastectomy: most commonly modified radical mastectomy which removes breast tissue along with lymph nodes in the axilla. After mastectomy whole breast reconstruction is and immediate or delayed option. Breast conservation surgery: involves removal of tumor along with surrounding tissue to completely remove the tumor. Axillary lymph nodes are addressed through separate incision. Sentinel lymph node biopsy/ axillary sampling: to decrease morbidities of lymph node dissection first draining lymph nodes only are removed in patients with clinically negative axilla. If negative on frozen section further axillary dissection is avoided.

Though pt1, n0 is stage one cancer which after your surgery is now completely removed. As far as post operative radiation is concerned, it is given to reduce the chances of recurrence. However according to the present knowledge we have there is no advantage of radiation in stage 1 cancer. Having said that, there is a risk factor called lymph vascular invasion which is present in your case and sometimes in some cases, there is also something called perineural invasion present. Moreover in head neck cancers tongue malignancy is the most tricky. Hence some oncologist prefer radiation after surgery.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking guidance. In fact, a chest x-ray is the very basic test advised by any physician should he / she suspect an abnormality. Barium swallow with x-ray is often employed to detect filling defects, if any. This often paves the way for further diagnostics as deems appropriate. Hope this clarifies.

It is not such an easy task for indian government to ban the cigaretted because it is a huge industry and many people will loose employment also. So the best policy is to avoid smoking as it causes lung cancer.

If you are having repeated episodes of blood in sputum, you must get a bronchoscopy done after a course of antibiotics. Please review with bronchoscopy report if needed.

Sometym bladder prolapse may be the cause for incontinence. It all depends on the degree of the prolapse. But it is better to give a try with fibroid removal once (if its really very big).

Colon Cancer- Ways That Can Help In Managing It!

Colon Cancer- Ways That Can Help In Managing It!

Colon cancer as indicative of the name is cancer primarily affecting the colon or the large intestine. While colon cancer is considered the third most common type of cancer affecting people worldwide, it is also one of the most preventable types of cancer, if diagnosed and treated on time.

Colon cancer does not suddenly turn malignant and life-threatening. In quite a few cases, the tumor appears benign, also known as Adenomatous Polyps. With the passage of time, the adenomatous polyps (some, if not all) progress into colon cancer. In this article, I will emphasize upon the causes and proper management of colon cancer.

What acts as the trigger for colon cancer?

Like most of the other cancer forms, the exact cause of colon cancer is hard to decipher. However, in many cases, gene mutations have been found to play a pivotal role resulting in cancer formation in the colon. The mutations, as expected, is often an inheritable trait that can be passed on to subsequent generations. The following inheritable mutations make a person as well as their immediate family more susceptible to developing colon cancer.

1. FAP or Familial Adenomatous Polyposis is characterized by the formation of many polyps within the lining of the rectum and the large intestine. These polyps though start off as a noncancerous mass of cells have the potential to develop into cancerous cells over a time period. Thus, the condition should be treated at the earliest as people (FAP left unattended) stand a near 100% risk of suffering from colon cancer before reaching 40.

2. Lynch syndrome is another inheritable medical disorder that results from the mutation in the gene that is responsible for DNA mismatch repair. With the gene unavailable for the repair, the DNA undergoes damage with deleterious consequences. Also known as Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer, the condition often plays a significant role in the development of colon cancer, especially in people below 50 years.

3. Further, an unhealthy diet comprising primarily of high fat and low fiber foods can wreak havoc, with colon cancer being one of the possible consequence. Increased consumption of red meat, processed meat as well as alcohol can also act as a catalyst triggering colon cancer.

4. Obese as well as diabetic patients also stand a higher risk of suffering from colon cancer.

Management and Proper Care

As per reports, colon cancer is one of the least prevented types of cancer worldwide. There can be a myriad of factors responsible for the late detection and treatment. Proper care and management can go a long way to reduce the incidence of colon cancer.

1. If you experience any discomfort (such as weakness, sudden weight loss, repeated stomach upsets, abdominal pain, gas, or diarrhea), consult a doctor at the earliest.

2. People above 40 years and those with a family history of colon cancer should undergo regular health checkups and screenings.

3. Keep a check on your body weight. Drinking and smoking, if at all, should be within limits.

4. Take care of the diet. Avoid eating fatty foods on a regular basis. Consume more dietary fiber.

5. Lead an active and healthy lifestyle. Be involved in any active exercise/sports or at the minimal walking.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
