Hi Mr. lybrate-user. Diarrohea is a known side effect of the chemotherapy she is taking. You need an oncologist to check the dose she is getting. It might require to be reduced or this might also be due to after effects of radian. Medicaly known as radiation proctocolitis. Also get a blood exmaination dole to check out her hemoglobin and neitrophilic counts this might be a case of neutrophilic typhlitis. Thanks.

I have prostrate cancer And I am at very last stage My check up is going on But I just wanted to know that is there any treatment fir this and if yes then where?

MBBS, MS- Surgery , M.Ch - Surgical Oncology , FIAGES
Oncologist, Delhi
Treatment for prostate cancer is possible. Depending on the age of the patient, biopsy report, PSA level and staging of prostate cancer, following treatment modalities are available: Active Surveillance: is for very low or low grade prostate cancer and for patients who have expected lifespan of <10-15 years. Monitoring with PSA blood tests, digital rectal exams (DREs), ultrasound and prostate biopsy. If any change in risk factors immediate appropriate treatment is instituted. Surgery: appropriated choice for localized prostate cancer that has not spread beyond prostate gland. Appropriate approaches are Open, laparoscopic and robotic. Whenever possible nerve sparing radical prostatectomy is preferred. Side effects of Radical Prostatectomy: Urinary incontinence Most men regain at least some bladder control after a few weeks. Nurse or doctor can teach exercise to help recovery of bladder control. Erectile dysfunction: Surgery may also damage nerves near the prostate and cause erectile dysfunction. Sexual function usually improves over several months, but for some men, this problem can be permanent. Loss of fertility Radiation Therapy: for cure it is given in localized prostate cancer. Usually preferred over surgery if localized prostate cancer is associated with high risk features. Side effects: Bowel problems: Diarrhea, sometimes with blood in the stool, rectal leakage, and an irritated large intestine are problems that usually go away over time, but in rare cases they don’t. Bladder problems: frequence, burningor may be blood in your urine. Bladder problems usually get better over time, but for some men they don’t go away, with the most common problem being the need to urinate often. Trouble controlling urine (incontinence). Erection problems Feeling tired: Radiation treatment may cause severe tiredness. It may not go away until a few months after treatment stops. Urethral stricture Second malignancy: rarely, example; rectum Palliative radiotherapy is given for painful bony metastasis or weight bearing bones Hormone therapy: for advanced stage disease or for recurrence Chemotherapy: usually given for advanced disease when it become refractory to hormone therapy.

Healthy Prostate - 4 Things You Must Follow!

Healthy Prostate -  4 Things You Must Follow!

The prostate gland is a male reproductive organ at the base of the urinary bladder and urethra is a thin tube that carries urine out of the penis. It runs through the prostate gland. A fluid produced by this gland helps to carry sperms produced by the testes outside during intercourse.

Following things can be done for maintaining a healthy prostate:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an urologist.

DNB, MBBS

the kind of tumour needs to be confirmed by fnac /biopsy and the staging of tumour by pet ct then only any radical treatment can be planned because tumour of eyes don't go to axilla, so the primary tumour may be lying some where else.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. First & foremost, I would advise that you visit your doc, in person, for a clinical breast exam first. Your doc, post evaluation, would be able to recommend the steps next, appropriately. In the meanwhile, do have a healthy and balanced diet, preferably Mediterranean, and have an active lifestyle. Do exercise, de-stress and relax on a daily basis. Stay well hydrated too. Should it pain, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate the same. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.

Hi Mohit. Its an expected side effect of chemotherapy to stop periods. As the chemo works it destroys the normal hormonal balance of the body and periods can stop. Hope she gets well soon

Why we ard using chemical in medicine? Why we don't use ayurveda medicine for cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cytotoxic agents used in chemotherapy, many of them are derived from plants and in ayuvedic medicines also sometimes heavy metals are used. Because cancer cells arise from normal body cells and killing them by any means may be toxic to the whole body, but unfortunately that is what has to be done.

If you have missed period by 7 days then only pregnancy test to be done. Pregnancy is one of the reason apart from hormonal changes, that you did not had same symptoms of breast pain this time.

Dear lybrate-user, cancer does not spread though blood or air, it happens in one's body. Cancer develops within the body, and is known by symptoms. It can be cured totally in most of instances if diagnosed in early stages.

I am 75 years old mail suffering from secondary metastatic lung lesions and CA 19.9 is 740. I had 12 doses of chemo but the problem is not completely cured. Since it is told that frozen lemon helps in controlling cancer I want to know how much frozen lemon shall I take for better result per day and also whether I can take it in water because vegetables etc. Can not accommodate much. Shall be grateful for your advise.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
You have carcinoma pancreas with lung metastases. Vegetables and frozen lemon have protective role but it can not be considered as therapeutic. For treatment chemotherapy is the only option but ofcourse other supportive food do help in enhancing immunity and increase tolerance to treatments.
