Prostate enlargement requires a full clinical evaluation for the cause of enlargement. It is important to assess ultrasound status and post void residual urine along with serum PSA before starting any medications. If benign hypertrophy is present you can start tablet Urimax D daily once at bedtime.

Dear Sir, Can we break radio therapy in cancer treatment (mouth cancer ). Here in my case Radio therapy is started (allahabad Location ) and we want to concert with Doctors in Delhi.

It's better not to interrupt radiotherapy. As there is something called as repopulation of cell which can happen and can increase chances of recurrence if radiation is interrupted. This repopulation is controlled by continuous treatment.

I am suffering from blood cancer and I have visited some of the top specialists nd I did not get cured from this disease. And I hope I will get some answer from you.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, blood cancer needs to be treated by chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant if needed. Treatment would depend on the type of blood cancer and some other parameters so you will have to be under care of hemato oncologist in your region. You have many good hospitals in your vicinity like nims, yashoda, indo American, mnj etc so please be under their care and if suitable they will advise you for transplant.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking guidance here. Can you throw some light on the cancer (s) that you see in your family/ close relations? I would advise you to get in touch with a cancer genetic counselor who will help you understand the hereditary component appropriately and also advise on what can be done to prevent it. A cytogenetic analysis will help assess the risk, if any, precisely and the same can then be managed appropriately. As a generic prophylactic measure, however, its advisable that one adopts a healthy diet & lifestyle, and remains socially active throughout, further details of which can be suitably arrived upon, basis the study results. Both stage and grade of cancer have a bearing on the prognostics/ outcome of the disease. While'staging' determines how far the disease has progressed or advanced with stage I being the least and stage iv indicative of an advanced disease with metastatic spread to the distant organs. Histopathological'grading' on the other hand, is indicative of the degree of severity of the cancerous changes and is a determinant of how aggressive the cancer could be. Hope this clarifies your question suitably. Take care and all the very best.

I am an 18 years old boy and I have started smoking cannabis. I've read online that it is good for health in controlled quantities so is it right to go on this path. Does cannabis also cause cancer like tobacco products? Also it fine to smoke 3-4 joints a day. Will it affect me on a chronic basis?

Hi lybrate-user, cannabis smoking is injurious to health and you should try to abstain from it. It will slowly induce dependence and hamper your life. It will definitely have very harmful effects if you consume it on a chronic basis. So, its my advice and request to you to not spoil your entire life and even suggest your friends to stay away from this slow poison.

Dear, there is nothing to worry at the moment. Minor change in bcr_abl does occur. By continuing the same medicine it should come to normal. I feel that the dose of medicine you are taking is on lower side. You can seek the advice from your treating doctor to increase it to 200 mg. Daily.

Do one thing, examine your breast by yourself by palpating breast with flat of your fingers and pressing against chest wall all around, if you find any lump then consult a general surgeon and an ultrasound mammography and FNAC to be done.

Fibroadenoma is benign condition and it is safe. If you leave it, it will increase in size. Treatment of fibroadenoma is surgery. One fibroadenoma is removed there will be no problem related to it.

Breast Cancer - 6 Preventive Measures

Breast Cancer - 6 Preventive Measures

Breast cancer is one of the most feared diagnoses in women. When cancerous cells develop in a woman's breast, irregular lumps, changes in the shape or size of the breast and discharge of blood from the nipples may be experienced. There are lots of preventive measures that you can take to avoid breast cancer. It is important to live a healthy life with as less exposure to toxins as possible. Here are some tips and strategies that can lower your risk of breast cancer

Preventive measures:

  • Plant based diet - Studies have shown that a high plant based diet, full of vegetables and fruits, is packed with antioxidants, minerals, and nutrients that lower the risk of breast cancer. Eat light, and avoid refined sugar and processed meat. Try to construct a healthy Mediterranean diet plan rich in olive oil and nuts.
  • Maintain an appropriate weight - Do not gain extra weight as obesity and excessive weight gain are related to breast cancer. Cut down on fat and exercise regularly to lead an active life.
  • Breastfeeding - If you are a new mom, breastfeed your baby as it has numerous health benefits for both you and your child, including lowering the chances of breast cancer in the mother.
  • Sleep - It is important to get 8 hours of sleep every night to live a healthy life. Many studies have shown that a short duration of sleep and exposure to light at night that disrupts the circadian rhythm increases the risk of breast cancer.
  • Avoid tobacco and alcohol - Do not smoke as it increases the chances of cancer in other organs and also leads to toxin inclusion in the body. Also, be sure to drink in moderation as excess alcohol consumption is cancer causing offender.
  • Artificial hormones - Women during menopause often resort to hormone replacement therapy, and the extended use of this therapy can heighten the risk of breast cancer. Therefore, it is recommended to look for other options to smoothen your transition to the menopausal phase. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
