Fibroadenomas are benign lumps in the breast. Most of the fibroadenomas which are asymptomatic and not growing in size and no complex features on ultrasound, then there is no risk of cancer and these can be safely observed clinically and with regular ultrasound. Most of them disappear with age, most of them hem by menopause. If painful, large (> 4-5 cms) symptomatic, enlarging in size or complex features on ultrasound or if Patient wants it removed, excision Biopsy of the same can be done.

Radiation Therapy For Brain Cancer - Can It Have Side Effects?

MBBS, DNB (Surgical Oncology), MS - General Surgery
Oncologist, Delhi
Radiation Therapy For Brain Cancer - Can It Have Side Effects?

Radiation therapy is used for destroying the brain tumor cells, and relieves the symptoms of discomfort and pain caused by the tumor. Radiation is usually used after biopsy or resection of the tumor. This is done to destroy the microscopic cells of the tumor which have been left behind. Sometimes this is also an option for unresectable brain tumors or the metastatic tumors which spread to the brain from other parts of the body.

The radiation therapy is planned on several factors like the size and type of the tumor and the extent to which it has spread. Usually external beam radiation is used for the brain cancer and the area radiated involves the tumor and the surrounding area. In case of a metastatic brain cancer the radiation is given to the entire brain. People who have lung cancer receive radiation in the brain as a preventive therapy in order to stop the metastatic cancer from developing.

Side effects of brain cancer radiation
Depending on the site, dose, and other factors the radiation therapy when given to the brain might cause side effects. Hair loss, fatigue, edema, skin irritations are a few common side effects of brain tumor radiation. In some cases some people might develop swelling of the ankle, foot, calf and blood clots in the leg.


What is radiation therapy?
Radiation therapy is basically the use of targeted energy like X-ray to kill the cancer cells, or shrink them or change the symptoms related to cancer. This therapy might be used as:

 

  1. Primary treatment for the destruction of the cancer cells
  2. In combination with other ongoing treatments to inhibit the growth of the cancer cells
  3. Prior to another treatment to shrink the cancer cells
  4. Post some treatment to stop the growth of any cancer cells that have been left behind
  5. To relieve cancer symptoms

Types of radiation
Some of the radiation methods commonly used are:

  1. External beam radiation therapy: In this the radiation is directed from outside the body on the cancerous cells in the body. Some examples of this are IMRT, TomoTherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, 3D conformal radiation therapy and IGRT.
  2. Internal radiation therapy: Examples of this are high-dose rate brachytherapy.

Want A Healthy Prostate? Tips For It!

Want A Healthy Prostate? Tips For It!

The prostate gland, an essential part of the male reproductive system grows throughout your life. As you grow older, it becomes imperative to keep this organ healthy.

Here's what you can do to maintain a healthy prostate:

1. Workout to stay fit - Exercising regularly and maintaining an optimum weight can help to keep your prostate gland at an optimal health. Several types of research have revealed the beneficial aspects of exercising. It's said that physically active men are less likely to suffer from enlarged prostate if they performed a physical activity of low to moderate intensity. Likewise, physically active men who ran for 90 to 108 minutes are 20% less likely to develop erectile dysfunction.

2. Eat fruits and vegetables - Including fruits and vegetables in your diet can help to maintain a healthy prostate. Guava, papaya, tomato and watermelon are some of the options that spell good for your prostate. Vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels sprouts should also be included to boost the health of the gland. Ideally, you should have about 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily.


3. Have more soy products - Eating more soy products like tofu, soy flour, soy nuts can help to keep cancer of the prostate at bay. A study published in the British Journal of Urology International revealed that men who had soy products saw a 40% decrease in their risk of developing an enlarged prostate.

4. Have selenium-rich foods - Having foods rich in selenium (a powerful trace mineral) like tuna, eggs, cashews, onions, garlic, etc can reduce your risk of developing prostate cancer.

5. Say yes to healthy fats and no to trans and saturated fats - Choosing healthy fats like avocados, nuts, and olive oil can aid in boosting prostate health. At the same time, limiting saturated fats and trans fat intake are vital for keeping the prostate gland healthy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.

What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of Bile Duct Cancer?

MBBS, MD
General Physician, Ahmedabad
What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of Bile Duct Cancer?

Cholangiocarcinoma (Bile duct cancer), like any other cancer, leaves a person physically, mentally and emotionally drained. It has been mostly found to affect people above 60 years of age. The signs and symptoms associated are so common that very few people consult a physician. A delayed diagnosis implies delayed treatment. This goes on to aggravate and complicate the situation further. One needs to be a little alert. Any symptoms, no matter how common, should not be taken lightly. Look for the early signs and symptoms and bile duct cancer can be fully cured.

Signs and symptoms associated with Cholangiocarcinoma:
Bile duct cancer can be Extrahepatic (occurs in the duct outside the liver) or Intrahepatic (cancer develops within the smaller ducts inside the liver). It must be noted that Intrahepatic Bile duct cancer and Liver cancer are different.

  • Bile duct cancer results in blocking the bile duct. This blockage severely effects the secretion of bilirubin and bile from the liver. Thus, the secretions (bile and bilirubin) which are supposed to flow into the intestine move back into the bloodstream. An elevated level of bilirubin in the blood gives rise to a condition, known as Jaundice (a condition resulting in yellowing of the eyes and the skin). The problem lies in the fact that many other factors can equally contribute to Jaundice. Consulting a physician at the earliest is the best resort.
  • A sudden or drastic weight loss and loss of appetite is an alarming sign of Cholangiocarcinoma.
  • Excessive itching can be an indication of something as big as bile duct cancer. Itching can be an outcome of the increased bilirubin (blood) reaching the skin.
  • At an advanced stage of Cholangiocarcinoma, a patient may experience severe abdominal pain.
  • At times, the tumour in the bile duct might exert immense pressure on the nearby organs. This can give rise to an enlarged abdominal mass. Bloated feeling is also very common amongst the patients.
  • An unusual change in the colour of the stool and urine should not be neglected. The elevated bilirubin level from the intestine is usually eliminated out of the system through the urine.  Thus the stool appears lighter and the urine a shade darker.
  • A cholangiocarcinoma patient can, at times feel nauseated. Fever is also a common but an extremely important indication.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Rest lumps Swelling of Lymph Node My sister is aged about 40 years. She had a lump in her right breast a mammogram was done and then 2.5 cms lump with benign lymph nodes were noted. A quadrantectomy on right breast only was done and no lymph nodes were extracted. Upon HPE it was revealed that she has ductal infiltrating carcinoma. Then PET CT was done and no distant metastasis and no lymphadenopathy was reveled. However focal activity in colon wall noted. It is advised to undergo 4 cycles of CT and the breast only irradiation. Sir what would be the ideal procedure and treatment schedule. Is removal of lymph nodes and hpe of same again required or can we just go ahead with above treatment. I can send the reports if required.

We need to address the axilla especially for staging. 30% of nodes which are negative for cancer on ultrasound, PET scan and Core Biopsy or FNAC, turn out to be positive on sentinel node Biopsy. Ideal procedure for a negative axilla should be a sentinel node Biopsy and if found positive, then an Axillary clearance should be done. (some prefer to leave it at that if 1-2 nodes only positive or radiate the axilla) This staging of Axilla helps to decide the prognosis of the disease. E.g we may shift to adria based chemo plus taxanes. Also the ER/PR/Her 2 status determines the treatment needed I would be able to opine better if you send the reports directly.
