How to detect oral cancer? I was suffering follicles on tonsil, I often use to press it out and which relieves me. Now from 6 months have passed no follicles seen. There is constant sore throat. I am habitual tobacco chewer. Early diagnosis may help me. Hence let me know how to get examined for oral/throat malignancy?

Dentist, Noida
Hi early diagnosis of cancer is necessary as it will always improve the prognosis. And as you are a habitual consumer of tobacco I will advice you to go for a punch biopsy which is available in most of the dental clinics. There are also many screening test available which can be done chairside which includes toludene blue screening and exfoliative cytology. But you have to withdraw the habit of consuming tobacco as it will nothing will benefit you more than this.

Hey doctor, can you tell what is cancer and how does it occur. Is there any prevention method or cure for this disease?

General Physician, Faridabad
Genetic changes that cause cancer can be inherited from our parents. They can also arise during a person’s lifetime as a result of errors that occur as cells divide or because of damage to DNA caused by certain environmental exposures. Cancer-causing environmental exposures include substances, such as the chemicals in tobacco smoke, and radiation, such as ultraviolet rays from the sun. no prevention. thanks

Prostatitis - Causes And Symptoms

Prostatitis - Causes And Symptoms

Prostatitis is a very common infection of the prostate. However, it is worth to note that prostatitis can also be an inflammation of the prostate without infection. Only 5 to 10 percent of prostatitis is caused by bacterial infection. Prostate cancer does not normally have its chances increased by prostatitis. There are several forms of prostatitis, including acute bacterial prostatitis, chronic bacterial prostatitis and chronic nonbacterial prostatitis (which is also known as chronic pelvic pain syndrome).

The exact cause for prostatitis is not known, but here are some factors which increase its risk, particularly acute bacterial prostatitis.

Possible causes:

  1. Medical instrumentation: Putting an instrument like a urinary catheter may well cause prostatitis.
  2. Rectal intercourse: This is basically another name for anal sex.
  3. Abnormal urinary tract: The urinary tract comprises of the bladders, kidneys, ureters and urethra. If any one of these organs gets infected, then prostatitis is much more likely.
  4. Bladder infection: A bladder infection may well spread to the prostate.

Prostatitis has a variety of symptoms. Here are the most common symptoms of prostatitis.

  1. Constant need of urination: This is one of the most common symptoms of prostatitis.
  2. Difficulty when urinating: Just like the constant need of urination, difficulty urinating is also a sign that you may have prostatitis.
  3. Pain while urinating: This is because the prostate gland is a part of your urinary tract and if it does not work properly, there will be pain.
  4. Chills and fever: This is a rarer symptom, but may indicate prostatitis if it is coupled with the other symptoms.
  5. Pain in perineal area and genital organs: If you are experiencing pain in genital organs, than it may indicate prostatitis. 
  6. Painful ejaculations or relief of perineal pain after ejaculations: If you are having painful ejaculation or the pain arises after ejaculation, then it may be due to prostatitis.
  7. Hematospermia: Pinkish or brownish semen.

If these symptoms are persistent or bothersome, then a proper consultation is required. Evaluation includes physical examination along with few simple tests. This can be followed by proper treatment for cure or relief of symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an urologist and ask a free question.

Hi, in my breast I have small gland fro past since 7years that becomes sometimes pain. 2years before I got married and I have one baby is any problem about that it vl causes cancer. I already consult a doctor before marriage she prefer mammography ultrasound scan but she did not give any clarity about that. Am very scaring about that.

Homeopath, Raebareli
You need to do another mammography if the size of the cyst/tumor is increasing or there is pain on touching. There is no need to panic before hand for you are having cancer.

How Do I Know if I Have Prostate Cancer?

How Do I Know if I Have Prostate Cancer?

Only men have prostate gland and it surrounds that part of the tube which carries urine out of the body from the bladder. When cells in this gland start growing without any control and get clumped with each other, they form tumors. It is then the chances of prostate cancer arise in the men's body. These tumors can be malignant, and they can kill the healthy tissues of your body and spread to other body parts. 

Chances of getting prostate cancer
The chances of getting prostate cancer are among men who are over 65 years of age. The ratio of getting prostate cancer is one among six men. It is more common in black men compared to white men, Hispanic men and Asian men. Moreover, when there is history of prostate cancer in your family, the chances of having prostate cancer increases.

Now, let's find out the symptoms that will let you know that you may have prostate cancer.

Symptoms of prostate cancer
There are different stages of prostate cancer and depending upon the stage you can get to know various symptoms. 
However, the problem is that in the early stages there are no specific symptoms of prostate cancer. Certain urinary symptoms may suggest that you are suffering from prostate cancer. Such symptoms are: 

  • Frequent urination
  • Difficulty with starting urine flow
  • Urination that burns
  • Blood in the urine
  • Weak flow, or 'dribbling'

These symptoms always do not mean that you are suffering from prostate cancer, as these symptoms may be there when your prostate gland gets enlarged. 

Another symptom associated with prostate cancer is pain in different parts of the body. When the cancerous cells spread they cause pain around the prostate gland. There can be pain in the hips, pelvis, and lower back or upper thighs. 

Prostate gland also plays a major role in the male reproductive system. Thus, if there is any sexual dysfunction, there are chances that it may be due to prostate cancer. If you are having a problem in getting an erection or maintaining it also becomes difficult, one problem can be prostate cancer.  Sometimes you may experience painful ejaculation, which also points towards chances of having prostate cancer. 

Thus, if you experience any of the above mentioned symptoms, its right time to get to your physician. Remember that as there are no early symptoms, the moment you find any of these symptoms, you should pay a visit to your Doctor.

Hi, Recently 10 days back my mom noticed some thing hard in left breast and done with scan and fnac .the reports resulted duct cell carcinoma and no lymphadenopathy. She went to hyd to confirm about it they did pet scan and mammogram of both tests. In pet scan they gave in neck: multiple hypodense nodules noted in both lobes of thyroid with minimal fdg uptake-- likely benign. Chest: Irregular soft tissue density parenchymal lesion noted involving superomedial quadrant of left breast. No direct skin / chestwall infiltration seen. No satellite nodules noted. Lessons shows moderately increased fdg uptake (SUV MAX: 8.7)-- primary. Increased fdg uptake noted in few enlarged left axillary and subcentimeter subpectoral lymph nodes (SUV MAX: 5.6 in largest axillary node) Bones: foci of increased fdg uptake noted in anterior opposing end plates of D2-D3 and D3-D4 vertebrae (SUV MAX: 10.6) inflammatory? Metastatic. A radio lucent intensely fdg avid lesion noted right transverse process of D3 vertebra (SUV MAX :15.6)-- metastatic. Remaining report is normal. What is the stage of breast cancer? And one of our friend told that it has been spread to spine is there any life risk problem. Within 2 days she is having surgery for left breast but doctors did not mentioned about back bone. Does chemotherapy helps to cure this problem after surgery. Please help us.

To summarize she has a breast lesion and bone lesion. We need to review the PET CT images. In the absence of axillary lymphadenopathy it is unlikely that bone lesions is due to cancer. I would suggest you to review PET CT images if non metastatic, go ahead with surgery followed by chemotherapy followed by radiation if metastatic looking, do biopsy to prove it then plan further.
