Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. Pain/ fatigue/ weakness etc all are commonly seen in cancer patients. For an acute or break through cancer pain, she may require prompt support from her consulting oncologist to help her with the needful analgesics that can relieve her pain. Simultaneously, however, for chronic and persistent pain, she can try the following in addition to her ongoing (pain) medications for relief - (a) eat a wholesome nutritious diet consisting of whole grains and plenty of leafy greens & fresh fruits. Include broccoli, capsicum, tomatoes, garlic, fenugreek, turmeric, leychees, pomegranate, cranberries, red & purple grapes etc all. (b) try including a cup of turmeric milk in her diet plan too, to be taken one to two times daily. Make sure the diet is not only nutritious but also easily digestible. (c) try consuming fresh water fish prepared with extra virgin olive oil. In case she is a vegetarian, you may consider cod liver oil capsules as a substitute/ supplement. (d) ensure that she stays well hydrated. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of clear fluids daily. Should she be losing weight or cachexic, she can take fresh juices, milk etc all to increase calorie and protein intake suitably. (e) additionally, you can consider a good nutritional supplement consisting of zinc, selenium, beta-carotene, vitamin c, vitamin d3, vitamin e & the b-vitamins, on a daily basis. (f) over and above the diet/ nutrition aspect, she needs to streamline her lifestyle too. A relaxed and stress free mind is also known to have positive impacts on one's health. In this connection, I would advise that she practise relaxation techniques including yogasanas (like'savasana' as mentioned above), meditation, listening to soothing music, social interactions, attending or viewing spiritual programmes etc all to destress, stay relaxed and happy. Stress needs to be controlled well throughout to beat fatigue and the associated weaknesses & pain. Staying relaxed and visualizing positive/ pleasant outcomes helps in pain management. As and how she gets over her weakness, she can start including short walks daily too, in her fitness regimen. (g) daily body massage/ foot massage also helps in such conditions. Acupuncture too can be of help in overcoming pain, weakness & fatigue etc all. Would advise take help from a trained masseur/ acupuncturist here. Hope this helps your mother recover from her present body pains soon. Do take care and all the very best. Please connect should you require further traction.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Apparently, these are the side effects of the chemo being administered at present. You can connect with his medical oncologist to manage these suitably. Furthermore, for Gallbladder cancer, an integrative treatment with natural medicines can not only improve clinical outcomes but also help alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy too. I could have advised in particular had I had known his exact treatment history including his current medications now. Please note that listening to soothing & melodious music does help reduce the feel of nausea/ vomiting as well as pain. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best.

DNB, MBBS

Fourth stage bone cancers whether it may be osteogenic sarcoma or ewings sarcoma, it would be by chemotherapy. Sometimes if it is a solitary site of metastases then surgery can be performed if excision Is possible and excision doesn't bring functional morbidity.

Ovarian Cancer - 4 Highly Effective Treatment Options Available

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Ovarian Cancer - 4 Highly Effective Treatment Options Available

Ovarian cancer takes place when the cells in either of your ovaries have an abnormal growth. The ovaries are two small organs, situated on either side of your uterus. They deliver female sex hormones and store and discharge eggs (ova) that help a woman reproduce. Ovarian cancer is a serious disease that emerges from various sorts of cells and growths inside the ovary.

Specialists do not know precisely what causes ovarian cancer. Hereditary qualities, for example and other DNA changes, are a danger element for few ladies. Around 10 out of 100 ovarian cancers are thought to be brought about by quality transformations in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes. Women who go through changes due to these carrier genes are more at risk of contracting ovarian cancer.

The earliest symptoms of ovarian cancer are as follows

  • Frequent bloating in the uterus or stomach area.
  • Pain in your pelvis or belly.
  • Inconvenience while eating, or feeling full quickly.
  • Urinary issues, for example, a critical need to urinate or urinating more frequently than expected.


Treatment options for ovarian cancer

The decision of treatment and the long-term result for ladies who have ovarian cancer relies upon the sort and phase of cancer they are in. Your age, general wellbeing, personal satisfaction, and wish to get pregnant should be considered. The primary treatment methods for ovarian cancer are:

  1. Surgery to see whether you have cancer or not and to treat it. This may include taking an ultrasound and biopsies to check for the spread of cancer.
  2. Chemotherapy, which uses medications to kill the cancerous cells. It is suggested after surgery for most phases of ovarian cancer.
  3. Women who are in a more progressive stage of ovarian cancer may have a portion of their chemotherapy before surgery and whatever is left of it after surgery. This can make the surgery more secure for these women.
  4. Radiation treatment might be utilized to pulverize the cancer cells with the help of high-measurement X-ray beams or other high-vitality beams.

Side Effects of Treatment Methods:

Most medications for ovarian cancer cause reactions. They may vary, depending upon the kind of treatment, your age and general well-being. Reactions of surgery rely on the degree of your surgery and spread of the disease. In case your specialist removes your ovaries, you lose the capacity to bear children or get pregnant. Furthermore, in case you were all the while bleeding before your surgery, you will begin with your menopause.

Symptoms of chemotherapy may incorporate loss of appetite and weight, queasiness, fatigue, vomiting, nausea and hair loss. There is also a possibility of getting a very serious infection. One should get regular or annual check-ups done to see if there are anomalies in either parts of the bodies since natural symptoms of cancer are only visible after a certain stage. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

How Cancer Affects Your Sex Life?

Graduate in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery ( GAMS )

How Cancer Affects Your Sex Life?

Hampered drive for physical intimacy may not be the case with everybody suffering from cancer. Since, each individual is different with varied sexual needs, it is rather impossible to predict how cancer would affect a person’s sex drive. But certain treatments of cancer might take a toll on your libido and subsequently, your sex life.

Cancer and certain treatments of cancer, can be the reason behind your low libido as they can cause:
1. Imbalance in the sex hormones
2. Scarring of the skin
3. Breathing problems
4. Diarrhea or bowel problems
5. Pain
6. Tension or anxiety
7. Depression or sadness
8. Irritability
9. Fatigue (Tiredness)
10. Persistent sickness

With any of these side-effects, you may not have the urge of indulging in sexual intercourse because of the constant irritability and pain, essentially resulting from weakness. You might also think less of yourself, with no care for the way you dress up, make up or do your hair as you used to do before. With fatigue playing nemesis to your libido, you may feel entirely washed out, exhausted and spent after your intensive chemotherapy sessions.

How do you address this problem?
1. Speak out: Try unburdening yourself of the worries and anxiety in front of your partner or the doctor and make them understand how you truly feel about yourself. They may be able to guide you home.
2. Plan your rumble beforehand: You can plan your sexual activity by taking pain killers an hour prior to lovemaking.
3. Foreplay helps: Remember, sexual contact cannot spread cancer, ever. An intense session of foreplay has never disappointed anybody and it might work wonders if you have been going through all the rigor of cancer and its treatment lately. It would make you feel genuinely cared for; this might just egg you on to come out of that shell of depression and anxiety and enjoy sex like the way you used to.

I was not aware about the cervical cancer prevention test while I was younger. Recently my Aunty got detected with cervical cancer and I am worried about its prevention. Is there a possibility that I can prevent it by vaccine or any other way? Also, can it be hereditary? P. S- I am married.

DM - Oncology, MBBS, MD - Medicine
Oncologist, Mumbai
Yes it's right, cervical cancer can be prevented with vaccination. It is very slow growing malignancy, so it can be detected very early by screening methods. Screening is recommended from age 21 to 29 years every ear by pap smear and after age of 30 years it should be done once every three years.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Lipomas are benign, and the risk of them getting malignant is usually very low. Nevertheless, should it be concerning you owing to cosmetic reasons, you may decide to get them surgically removed. Simultaneously, I would advise you to take care of your dietary habits and lifestyle first. Should you be taking more of oily, fatty & sweet foods, do cut down your intake of such foods, and focus instead on more of green leafy vegetables & fresh fruits on a day to day basis. Include foods rich in protein, in your diet too. Taking a glass of lukewarm water in which a tsp of honey and juice of half a lemon are mixed thoroughly, early morning empty stomach, for about 1 - 2 months shall help reduce not only obesity but also may help reduce lipoma (s). At the same time, do incorporate daily exercises, yoga & walking for at least 30 to 45 minutes irrespective, unless you have any physical constraints that do not allow you so. Relaxing and de-stressing yourself regularly is equally important for your overall health. Hope this helps. So take care and all the very best. Sincerely

Stay away from direct sunlight. Exposure to too much sunlight can be harmful to the skin. You probably already know that it can cause skin cancer, but did you know that it can exacerbate acne.

There is no need to go for fb removal. You have to treat prostate first. You can take a trial of urimax-d for few days if your cardiologist allow you. Or you can get turp done after holding aspirin and clopidogrel for few days. For gb polyp you have to get usg abdomen done regularly at every 3-6 mnths and if size increases upto 10 mm or it increases in number (more than 3) then laproscopic removal should be planned.

Prostatitis treatments vary depending on the underlying cause. They can include: Antibiotics. This is the most commonly prescribed treatment for prostatitis. Your doctor will base the choice of medication on the type of bacteria that may be causing your infection. If you have severe symptoms, you may need intravenous (IV) antibiotics. You'll likely need to take oral antibiotics for four to six weeks but may need longer treatment for chronic or recurring prostatitis. Alpha blockers. These medications help relax the bladder neck and the muscle fibers where your prostate joins your bladder. This treatment may lessen symptoms, such as painful urination. Anti-inflammatory agents. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may make you more comfortable. Prostate massage. This is done by your physician using a lubricated, gloved finger — a procedure similar to a digital rectal exam. It may provide some symptom relief, but doctors disagree about how effective it is. Other treatments. Other potential treatments for prostatitis are being studied. These treatments include heat therapy with a microwave device and drugs based on certain plant extracts
