Hi My mother of aged 69 years suffering from final stage stomach metastatic adeno carcinoma Ascites fluid collecting in abdomen very quickly We thrice removed of fluid by paracentesis in month about 2 to 3 liter each time. As per oncology advise we are not gone for chemotherapy treatment because of age factor. How often paracentesis can be done and how much water can remove each time?

Yes, definitely elderly do very bad with chemotherapy and should be given only in patients having good performance status and nutrition status. In those who has both of these on lower side should have some other options which does not have much side effects. If you don't treat primary disease then frequency to collect fluid in abdomen will start increasing may be you need to take it out so often like 3 to 4 days.

Dear Dr, My father 75 years old diagnised with adenocarcenoma HER+(Stomach and spread to liver and colon) stg 4 in Apr 2014. He was administered weekly chemo TCH for 12 weeks followed 02 triweekly TCH chemos. The whole cycle was completed by Sep 2014. After last cycle he suffered from uncontrolled dysentry and admitted to ICU. Since then he is on normal gastric medicines but on 03 Feb he developed some dysentry for one day and same day his right hand and legs developed swelling. No further chemo can be administered as presently he is bedridden and weighs only around 30 kg. Please advise.

Adenocarcinoma stomach with metastasis is very poor survival result. and TCH is a toxic regiment but effective too. now as his general condition is not good dont give him any chemotherapy , rather supportive care is the best treatment. if his general condition improves can think of some palliative tablets like carcidrox

Hi, I appreciate you seeking guidance. Commonly blood tests/ tumor markers, scans and biopsies are usually employed to diagnose cancer, with biopsy being the gold standard that clinches the diagnosis. The test requirements, as mentioned above, vary from cancer to cancer. In fact, there always are symptoms but in certain early stage cancers they are quite mild and hence go unnoticed mostly. Routine health checkups may help catch these early, however. Specifically, basis the cancer society recommendations, you need to be watchful about seven cardinal warning signs (c. A. U. T. I. O. N) of cancer, as given below - c - change in bowel habits a - a sore that does not heal you - unusual bleeding or discharge t - thickening or enlargement of a lump I - indigestion or difficulty swallowing (/ dysphagia) o - obvious change in a wart or mole n - nagging cough or hoarseness hope this answers your question.

Hi, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 59. In 2012. She had mastectomy for her left breast. Her tumor size was 2*2*1.5. 15 lymph nodes were dissected. They were free of tumor. Her deep resection plane is also free of tumor. Her er n PR were positive n her was neg. She did not receive any radiation n chemo. Instead she was asked to have letrozole for 5 yrs. I want to know her prognosis.

As per your reports she was pt1n0, hormone receptor positive, her 2 negative disease. In this selected class of patients, we avoid radiation and chemotherapy. And give hormonal treatment only. Having excellent prognosis. To justify role of chemotherapy in this group, we now have a test called oncotype dx (was not available in 2012). But overall your mom in a curative stage. We recommend three monthly follow ups for two years and then six monthly for next three years (total five years). Then yearly life long.

Dear sir, most likely it would be benign tumour like lipoma or schwannoma, but difficult to say without clinical examination, so please get it checked clinically to be more sure.

Oral cancers present as ulceration in oral cavity on tongue inner side of cheek, floor of mouth etc. One can also have a nodular growth, bleeding from it, neck swelling or nodal enlargement etc. Premalignant stages are reduced mouth opening, whitish patch, reddish patches etc. Must not take tobacco of any form, if any sharp tooth, then get it grinded or capping done, ill fitting dentures must be changed. Food containing antioxidants, lycopene have protective roles. Sprouts, leafy vegetables, turmeric, tuslsi leaves, wheatgrass etc may help.

Homeopathic treatments for cancer

Homeopathic treatments heal a disorder by inducing diluted symptoms of the same disorder to treat it. There are treatments in homeopathy which are used in treating cancer. These treatments adopt multiple approaches to treating cancer such as inducing similar symptoms to treat the disorder or strengthening the elimination systems (kidney, liver and lymphatic system).

Some remedies used for treating cancer by following the principles of classical Homeopathy are-

1. Lapis Albus-

This treatment is usually used in treating cases of breast cancer and malignant growths in the uterus.

2. Conium

Conium is used in treating cancers related to the genital area such as testicles and uterus.

3. Hecla lava

Hecla lava is used in the treatment of bone cancer.

4. Arsenicum

Arsenicum is used to treat almost all cancer-related disorders. It helps in easing symptoms of psychological fear that cancer patients have. It also detoxifies the body and eases the stress from the kidneys and nervous system.

5. Phytolacca

Phytolacca is used when malignant tumors occur in fat based tissues. They are also used in treating fibroids tumors in the uterus and hard tumors in the breast.

6. Condurango

Cancers related to the stomach respond well to this treatment. It is also helpful in treating symptoms of cancer that form in the epithelial cells of the body.

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.
