Meri mummy ke berest cancer hai or 2nd stage hai or doctor ne bola hai inke 2 operation ho sakte ak pura breast nikalna hai ya berest mai jo tumer hai usa nikalne mai bhi thik ho sakta hai dono operation ka result same hai iske liya advice chaiye ?

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
The two operations are 1. Mastectomy- whole breast along with the tumour is removed 2. Lumpectomy- only the tumour with some normal surrounding breast is removed in case of mastectomy, if the tumour is small (<5 cm) and axillary lymph nodes are negative, then usually no radiotherapy is given. But in case of lumpectomy, it is usually followed by radiotherapy. In both situation the survival remains same. The biggest advantage of lumpectomy is psychological as the breast is not totally removed.

Adrenal Cancer - Know Its Symptoms!!

MBBS, MS, M.Ch
Oncologist, Chandigarh
Adrenal Cancer - Know Its Symptoms!!

Cancer can affect even small glands like the adrenal glands. Adrenal glands are responsible for the production of hormones like cortisol and aldosterone. These glands are located above the kidneys and have two parts; the cortex and the medulla. Adrenal cancer generally affects the cortex of the adrenal glands. This type of cancerous tumour is rare and can be difficult to diagnose.

Most adrenal cancer symptoms are triggered by an excessive production of estrogen and androgen. Symptoms can also be caused by the pressure put on other organs by the tumour. Adrenal cancer symptoms are most easily noticeable in children as this is the stage where the body is changing and developing. Some of these symptoms are:

  1. Facial hair growth
  2. Excessive pubic and underarm hair
  3. An enlarged penis or clitoris
  4. Early onset of puberty in girls
  5. Development of enlarged breasts in boys

Symptoms of adrenal cancer in adults includes:

  1. Excessive weight gain in the abdomen and above the collar bone
  2. High blood pressure
  3. Irregular menstruation
  4. Easy bruising
  5. Depression
  6. Frequent urge to urinate
  7. Muscle cramps

Additionally, men with adrenal cancer that causes excessive estrogen production may notice an enlargement of breast tissue and tenderness in the area. Women suffering from excessive androgen production triggered by adrenal cancer may notice their voice deepening and facial hair growth. In most cases, adrenal cancer symptoms in women do not appear until the tumour presses on other organs. This includes symptoms like pain around the tumor, a feeling of fullness in the abdomen and difficulty eating because of this feeling.

The cause of adrenal cancer has not yet been determined, but conditions such as Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, Li-Fraumeni syndrome, familial adenomatous polyposis and multiple endocrine neoplasia can increase a person’s risk of suffering from this disease. A thorough physical examination and a detailed medical history is required to diagnose this disease. The doctor will also need a blood test and urine test. Additional tests that may be required include:

  1. Biopsy of the tumor
  2. CT scan
  3. MRI scan
  4. PET scan
  5. Adrenal angiography

Adrenal cancer can be cured if diagnosed in its early stages. There are three types of treatment for adrenal cancer; surgery to remove the adrenal gland, chemotherapy and radiation. However, adrenal cancer can recur and hence it is important to schedule and maintain regular check-ups with a doctor.

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.

What are the symptoms of cancer? What are its affects on human body? What are precautions for cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer presents due to uncontrolled proliferation of cells, may present as lump mostly painless, unexplained weight loss, bleeding from any site, cough, difficulty in swallowing, altered bowel habits etc depending on organ effected. Due to uncontrolled growth they not only exhaust body resources but also can cause disruption of body functions and can also go to other organ affecting their functions leading organ failure. Healthy lifestyle and routine screening are helpful.
