What are the symptoms of breast cancer and at which age it may happen, please do reply.

Oncologist, Mumbai
Breast cancer can occur from any age usually after 25 years. It is more common after the age of 40 years. The symptoms include nipple discharge, and swelling. The ladies are advised to do breast self examination by standing in front of the mirror and noting for any changes. Also, some screening tests like mammography are indicated. If there are any symptoms, please describe them in detail so that I can suggest tests and help you further.

Dear Soni, It is essential to know what type of cancer you were suffering from and what treatment you received. By that we can know what are the chances of recurrence. It is a good news that you are cured from this trouble and are on prophylaxis by antioxidants.

It is increasing but still at normal range. So, first finish the rest of the chemo (upto 6 usually). Then have gynecological check up and usg (if needed ct scan) to diagnose whether there is any residual tumour or not.

I found this document online and have come across many research documents on Cannabis oil killing Cancer cells Just want to know why this method not accepted and why this is not a primary treatment for Cancer?

Any new drug or therapy, before being marketed, undergo rigorous testing in lab. And only one drug from hundred tested comes to market. So it is better to avoid any research molecule without advice of treating doctor.

You are suffering from post radiation injury to teeth and gums, there may be dryness of mouth and radiation decay of teeth along with gum inflammation. Visit a dentist to clean your teeth and evaluate salivary gland function so that you oral hygiene can improve, use tantum mouthwash daily and if required dentist may prescribe some topical medicines to improve your oral health. Get evaluation done for tongue Carcinoma time to time.

Lung Cancer - Symptoms At Early & Later Stages!

Lung Cancer - Symptoms At Early & Later Stages!

Lungs are the most important organ of our body that has the responsibility of taking in the oxygen and releasing out carbon dioxide. When cancer develops in it, the entire body gets imbalanced. Lung cancer leads to more death than any other type of cancer, which is why identifying the symptoms and knowing the causes are instrumental in obtaining a timely diagnosis as well as in prevention of this disease.

Symptoms of Lung Cancer

In the early stages:

  1. Persistent coughing
  2. Chest pain
  3. Bleeding
  4. Fatigue
  5. Loss of appetite
  6. Sudden weight loss
  7. Headaches
  8. Coughing up blood

In the later stages:

  1. Bone pain
  2. Joint pain
  3. Facial paralysis
  4. Neck swelling
  5. Blood clotting
  6. Weakness
  7. Sever chest pain

Causes of Lung Cancer

  1. Smoking: People who smoke are more prone to lung cancer. With the increase in the number of cigarettes you smoke, your chances of getting lung cancer increase too. People who don't smoke but are surrounded by the smokers also have high chances of being affected by this form of cancer.
  2. Exposure to Asbestos: Asbestos is a group of mineral, which is present naturally in the environment. Lung cancer can occur due to the inhalation and ingestion of asbestos fibers.
  3. Exposure to Ranon Gas: Ranon is a radioactive gas, which is formed naturally on decaying of radioactive elements. It is found in low levels in the air that we breathe and the water that we drink. Consumption of air and water having this gas leads to lung cancer.
  4. High Levels of Air Pollution: Presence of high levels of dust particles and pollutants in the air that we breathe can cause lung cancer. 1-2% of lung cancer is caused because of it.
  5. High Levels of Arsenic in Drinking Water: Consuming water with arsenic content is harmful as it directly affects the lungs and when the arsenic content is too high, it may lead to lung cancer.
  6. Exposure to Chemicals: Exposure to certain chemicals like uranium, coal products, gasoline, diesel exhaust and mustard gas can also cause lung cancer.
  7. Family History of Lung Cancer: Chances of getting lung cancer increase if your parents, child or siblings are already prone to lung cancer.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

I am a 32 year old woman, I feel sharp shooting pain in the extreme right side of my right breast. It occurs whenever I get up. The pain is too sharp which is unbearable. I had diagnosed with a lump in my right armpit which I don't feel while touching. Doctor said it usually occurs due to waxing.

Waxing of armpit may result in folliculitis, which usually resolves in a few days. The pain is usually throbbing. Shooting pain is usually due to nerve compression. Better to see a breast surgeon to rule out causes arising from the breast. But also show an orthopaedic Surgeon to rule out nerve compression.

Since Your hair fall is due to side effects of chemotherapy, there are chances of hair regrowth. 1.Make a mixture my mixing 200gms of amla powder and 100gms of bhringraj powder , take 1 tsp of it twice daily with water empty stomach. 2.Drink plenty of water daily. 3.Take giloy tablets, 1 tablet thrice a day with water empty stomach. It will help improve your immunity. 4.Use ayurvedic shampoos tgat are chemical free. 5.Apply aloepecia cream of himalaya on your scalp .

Testicular Cancer - What To Expect?

Testicular Cancer - What To Expect?

Testicular cancer is mostly witnessed among young adults in the age range of 24–35. It results from the growth of abnormal cells in the testes. It is not the most common type of cancer found in the body, but can pose a serious threat to an individual if not treated early. The cure rate is one of the highest among all kinds of cancer found in the body. This being said, the rate of cure is totally dependent on the stage of detection.

Risk Factors for Testicular Cancer
The historical trend of testicular cancer suggests that white men are prone to this type of cancer than their African, Asian and Latino counterparts. A person with a family history of testicular cancer of HIV is at higher risk of getting this disease. Some other risk factors include Klinefelter’s syndrome and cryptorchidism.

Protection from Testicular Cancer
There is no hard and fast rule of protection. It is suggested that the testicles get evaluated while routine medical check-up. A person with a family history of testicular cancer should opt for a periodic checkup after every three months. In case a patient has already recovered from testicular cancer, routine medical tests are a must to ensure non-recurrence.

Symptoms of Testicular Cancer
The common symptom is a swelling in the testicle. It feels like a thickening of the testicle and is mostly painless. Minor discomfort in the swelling region is often reported. Some other symptoms include back pain, ache in the scrotum and groin, change in the size of the testicle, bloating of the lower abdomen and heavy sensation of the scrotum. There is a rare form of this cancer, which produces a female hormone called estrogen in a man’s body. This disease results in a lack of sexual desire, lump in the affected area, etc. Even less serious testicular cancer might show these symptoms. An oncologist should be immediately consulted if one or more of these symptoms surfaces.

What are the treatment options?
Testicular cancer is mostly cured with the help of a surgery. A follow-up radiation and chemotherapy is suggested by doctors to destroy the surrounding cells. It is done to ensure that the cancer cells do not spread easily and the chance of recurrence is minimal. The rate of cure depends on early detection.

Does testicular cancer affect sexuality?
In most of the cases, testicular cancer is detected in one testicle. If this is the case, the other testicle produces all the hormones needed for sexual drive. It also does not affect sex drive, beard and muscularity. There is also a large section of patients who reported of a difficult sexual life after the surgery. There can be some discomfort in the scrotum as well.

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