Is there any permanent solution for blood cancer what are the lowest expense treatment now available in india? Is it possible full recovery in one year what are the simtames of blood cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
dear sir, blood cancers are treated by chemotherapy followed by bone marrow transplantation. cost of treatment depends on the set up. In government hospitals and regional cancer centres subsidized or free treatment is available. There are many NGOs assisting in treatment they not only help financially but also help in rehabilitation. duration of treatment will depend on the type of blood cancer and the response to initial therapy.

What are the chances that I will develop lung cancer if I am smoking for more than five years and what are the common symptoms of cancer?

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Lung cancer is uncommon in your age, but yes cases have occurred in this age group also. The more you smoke the more the risk increases and the'formula therapy' that it occurs after only so many years of smoking is not there, thinking that one may stop smoking before that fixed number of years of smoking. So quit smoking today itself and lead a healthier life. Symptoms of lung cancer are non specific (i. E. Common in many other lung diseases). One may have cough, sputum, blood in coughing, chest pain, breathlessness, alone or in various combinations.

Birad 2 cysts are benign and can be observed. Probably you have fibroadenosis and you can take vitamin e supplement and primosa 1000 for 2-3 months. Please also get your hormone levels checked as it is hormone dependent.

Sir I am suffering from health anxiety disorder from last 2 year. I am continuously searching on google for small sym...
You need to examine your GERD with an oncologist to rule out this fear, which may be unnecessary. Anxiety can suggest a lot of possibilities from fear and cause unwarranted escalation to your emotional makeup. You have not been dealing with your fears for a long time, perhaps. All unexpressed feelings will find some other way of expressing itself in the body. These will lead to psychological problems of various kinds. You need to be trained in dealing with emotions and retain it as an ongoing process in life. Meet a counselor and get some guidance in this regard. In the meantime, please follow an exercise regiment, eat well and keep good company. Make your last meal, as far as possible, a pure carbohydrate meal. Eat early and make it a small meal too. Avoid all foods that cause flatulence. Sleep on your left ear most of the night. Every time you feel fear talk to someone about it. Do some deep breathing, with your left nostril shut, and you will immediately calm down. If it gets too much, place your index finger on your shut lips and puff up your cheeks tightly with air and hold it for some time. The back pressure of the air will press the vagus nerve at the rear of the throat and immediately reduce the heart rate to calm you down. If it gets worse, please visit a psychiatrist.

Please suggest a health checkup plan to ascertain whether a person is having cancer or not.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
There is no single test to completely eliminate the risk of cancer. However there are a few tests which depending on the patient profile, may be used suitably to detect common cancers early, so that they can be treated more effectively. There is no universal solution and varies from person to person.

I am a 21 year old I want to know that the symptoms of cancer and type of cancer which generally occur in our body. How we secured whole life from this disease and secured our loved ones.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is an abnormal over growth of few cells of our body. They become autonomous and uncontrolled as there is some fault in the genes which control and regulate the growth. This faulty gene may be due to exposure or injury by chemicals or carcinogens, tobacco chewing or smoking, pollution pesticides radiation exposure etc. The cancer can affect any and every part of body. One should be aware of hie or her body changes. Anything new you notice about your body, do not ignore, like it may be some pain less lump, abnormal bleeding or periods, discharge, unexplained weight loss, prolonged fever, weakness, cough etc anything, one must consult a nearby doctor. Avoid any kind of chemical exposure and carcinogens.

Dear sir, you must quit tobacco first of all as nearly 40 % cancers may be related to tobacco. You must get yourself thoroughly checked by a physician For any ulceration, lump, chest xray, ultrasound, psa, CEA, stool for occult blood, Routine urine and ENT evaluation. All these are mostly included in cancer preventive health packages.

Hello sir. Sir please tell me if any lump is in brest so whats the reason for that. I concern many doctors she says its a febudunoma disese.

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
Fibroadenoma is a common occurrence in young females. The treatment of fibroadenoma is surgery. However if it is not producing any symptoms or size of the lump is not too lage to cause cosmetic problems, surgery is not required. However if you are not going for surgery, it is better to confirm your diagnosis by an fnac.

How can we identify the starting level of cancer is there any test to identify cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
There is no one particular approved test to identify the disease, so one has to go for comprehensive health screening to identify the disease even if no symptoms are present. Many hospitals have cancer screening programmes for basic screening of cancers.

As I am planning to get married and searching for girls. Thanks and waiting for a reply.

No medicines for lipoma are available. This is fat overgrowth basically. At cosmetically imp site, you can go for surgery, if you r really curious for these.
