Hi I am suffering from lung cancer stage 4 I am not having enough resistance to have chemotherapy what should I do Im in stage 4 what will be my life.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Chemotherapy in stage 4 is as such not intended to be curative,its just palliative to relieve symptoms and prolong some life. If you have opted not to receive chemotherapy after understanding all its pros and cons then its your wish which matters the most. You may still receive other palliative treatments required to relieve you of your sufferings due to disease.

Dear sir, we need to establish the cause of bladder neck obstruction, is it because of prostate enlargement, then to find out the cause of enlargement whether benign or malignant and then treat accordingly.

I want to know about mouth cancer. And its diet after surgery. What should eat or not. And what kind of precautions should be taken after surgery, Radiation and chemo. Is it curable? Actually surgery done on Dec 2016 ,now radiation is going to complete. But still now he is unable to take food.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Whether or not you can eat or drink after your operation depends on your type of surgery. Any surgery to your mouth usually means you can't eat or drink for a few days. You have fluid through a drip and you can wet your mouth with ice or sips of water. If you have a feeding tube, a dietitian will see you to decide how much liquid feed you need, until you are eating and drinking normally. Once your wound has healed you can gradually increase the amount you drink. Soon you can start to eat a soft diet, such as soup or jelly. Your dietitian will monitor this, and gradually cut down your liquid feeds.

The drug you mentioned is still experimental. We can't advise this at this moment. Diarrhoea is a common side effect after radiation. Majority of my patients with Ca cervix after radiation, complain this. It may persist for long time. It's distressing but not worrisome. So, don't worry.

What is the symptom of blood cancer? It can be cured? How many year they can survive? Do they will take tablets aways? Kindly answer me pls.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Blood cancer is caused by abnormal growth of one of the component of blood causing suppression of others. Hence leading to symptoms like prolonged fever, frequent infection, anemia, bleeding, bone pains etc. They may survive many years without relapse and duration for which treatment is done depends on the status of disease, ldh level, bone marrow status. But treatment usually is done beyond two years.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, Signet ring cell carcinoma is a variant of adenocarcinoma. It looks like a signet ring because of lot of mucin inside the cells. Usually signet ring carcinoma are more aggressive types and often present with advanced disease. However if the cancer has been treated then the survival would be similar to the standard adenocarcinoma which we see

Ayurvedic Remedies for Nasopharynx Cancer

Nasopharynx cancer is a very unusual type of cancer. In this medical condition, cancer cells affect the nasopharynx region, which is the uppermost part of your pharynx. The cells start growing from the upper region of the throat and can spread up to your head. Nasopharynx is a very important passage of your body placed right behind your nose, which connects your nose to your mouth and allows you to breathe. Thus, if this crucial region gets affected by the growth of cancer cells, severe difficulties and health problems may crop up.

The primary cause of nasopharynx cancer is infection. There are other causes, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, working with specific chemicals or wood dust.

The most common symptoms of nasopharynx cancer are mentioned below:

  • Difficulties in vision and speech
  • Ear infections
  • Nose bleeding
  • Loss of hearing
  • Frequent headaches

Nasopharynx cancer cause serious problems to the ear-nose-throat region. Ayurveda offers effective remedies for treating nasopharynx cancer. A few of the remedies are mentioned below:

  1. Exclude salt in your diet and also avoid sea fishes or fishes containing salt.
  2. Practice good hygiene, since, nasopharynx cancer is primarily caused due to virus infections, practicing healthy habits like washing hands before and after food can prove to be helpful.
  3. Avoid smoking and drinking as it smoking and alcohol consumption will only worsen your condition.
  4. Certain breathing exercises may help you to cope up with the problem better.
  5. Panchakarma therapy which helps to clean your body from harmful toxins which may prove to be helpful.
  6. Also many Ayurvedic herbs and essential oils can effectively treat nasopharynx cancer.

Well in plain terms the answer is no. The treatment you r undergoing is mainly meant to slow down the growth or progress of your cancer but not cure it. You haven't undergone any curative procedure like radical prostatectomy. So cancer still stays and it will spread with time. Anyways you should consult your urosurgeon. You may undergo radiotherapy as it may help in bone mets.

Stomach cancers give best results when treated with a combination of chemotherapy and surgery. If its stage 1 or 2, upfront surgery is best followed by further treatment based on the pathology report. If its stage 3, it needs chemotherapy followed by surgery. You can put the details of the reports here so that we can elaborate on the management plan.

I want to clarify, is there any symptoms for rectal cancer? Coz, my father had the rectal cancer and no more now. I don't know how to check or to whom I go to check. Please let somebody tell me, how can I found is am also affected by rectal cancer or not.

After complete treatment for rectal cancer, patient should follow up with cancer surgeon every 3 monthly for first 2 years, then 6 monthly for next 3 years, then yearly thereafter. At every visit patient should get CEA and ultasonography done. Other than this if patient has persistent pain while passing motion, difficulty in passing motion or if there is blood in stools, then the patient needs to show to a surgical oncologist immediately.
