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

MBBS
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

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking clarification. Well, as you understand correctly, no definite cause is known. However, p53 gene over-expression, excessive fatty diet, obesity, diabetes, fibrocystic breast disease, heredity/ inheritance of mutated breast cancer genes 1 (BRCA1) and 2 (BRCA2), smoking, alcohol intake, infertility, fertility treatment, estrogen therapy/ hormone replacement therapy (long term) in post menopausal women, delayed age at first pregnancy, nulliparity (not having child), early menstruation, delayed onset of menopause, lactating mothers not breast feeding, iron overload, exposure to ionizing radiation, sedentary lifestyle, antipsychotic drugs, depression, exposure to MMTV virus, high glycemic diet, silicone breast implants, exposure to xenobiotics, etc all are a few major things that can potentially increase the risk for breast cancer. Hope this clarifies. Take care.

Risk Factors and Symptoms of Oral Cancer

MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Risk Factors and Symptoms of Oral Cancer

Oral cancer is the uncontrollable growth of cells called tumors that invade and damage the tissues surrounding it is in or around the mouth. Oral cancer, like all other types of cancer, is life threatening if not diagnosed and treated in the early stages. There are eight types of oral cancer namely cancer in the throat, sinuses, hard and soft palate, floor of the mouth, gums, cheeks, tongue and lips. Dentists are usually the first ones to notice and detect the signs and symptoms of oral cancer. This condition is also known as oral cavity cancer. The risk factors and symptoms of oral cancer are mentioned below.

Symptoms:

The symptoms of oral cancer, especially in the first stages, seem non-threatening and similar to common oral problems. However, visiting the doctor is mandatory to rule out cancer as an option. If you suffer from one or more of the following symptoms, visit your dentist immediately.

  1. Thickenings and swellings, lumps or bumps, crusts, eroded areas or rough spots on the lips, gums or surrounding regions inside or around the mouth.
  2. Bleeding in the mouth that is unexplainable. 
  3. Persistent sores near and around the mouth or throat that bleed easily and may take more than two weeks to heal.
  4. Unexplained numbness or pain and tenderness in the mouth, throat or face.
  5. Development of patches, which are usually speckled, red or white in the mouth. 
  6. Sudden weight loss.
  7. Excruciating pain in your ear.
  8. Loose teeth.
  9. Difficulty in swallowing.
  10. Lumps in your neck. 
  11. Stiffness or pain in your jaw.
  12. Pain in your tongue.
  13. Dentures that fit poorly. 

Risk factor:

Men above 50 years of age face the greatest risk of developing oral cancer. Women are at a much lower risk of developing oral cancer than men. The following factors increase your risk of developing oral cancer: 

  1. Smoking cigarettes, cigars or pipes 
  2. Snuff, dips or chewing tobacco
  3. Excessive consumption of alcohol
  4. History of oral or other types of cancer in the family
  5. Chronic sun exposure, especially facial exposure
  6. Sexually transmitted virus such as HPV
  7. Diagnosed of oral cancer previously.

Hello, Prostrate inflammation is always associated with bladder pain and burning ejaculation. Recurrent urinary infections are responsible for the issue and it can affect your fertility too. No need to go for further investigations, it's time to start a treatment now. Ayurvedic medicines can solve your issue and make your urogenital system back to normal.

She have a breast problem once in a month getting pain can't press, can't touch? What should she do to cure?

PGDMLS, PGDHHM, LLB, PhD Surgery, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Gurgaon
The limited information provided indicates a condition called fibroadenosis. This is due to hormonal influence and becomes more during or just before the monthly menstrual cycle. Of course a physical examination by a general surgeon is a must to confirm the diagnosis and rule out other conditions. As general measures, breast support with a tight bra or crepe bandage can be helpful symptomatically. Painkiller medicines are of little help.

You may need evaluation with rgu, ultrasound and urine culture. If any abnormality in the reports like stricture or bladder neck contracture found then you will need cystoscopy and viu or bni. In case of infection in urine then treat that first.

Hello Sir, You can try medication for 3-6 months and see if it helps with your symptoms. Your urologist can prescribe you the medication. A particular tablet which the urologist may prescribe needs to be taken for atleast 6 months before you can see some benefit. Hence the time period of 6 months that I mentioned above. Another type of tablet cans how improvement in 3 months. If after 6-9 months your symptoms have not improved then you can consider surgery. Hope this helps you Thank you.

If it bleed for a patient who is suffering from throat cancer, which stage he will be into and what are the chances ?

MD - Radiation Oncology, MBBS, DNB (Radiotherapy)
Oncologist, Howrah
Bleeding has no effect in staging. Even patients in early stages with throat cancer can bleed. Chances depend on stage of the patient which should be established by cect of neck and laryngoscopy findings. But even locally advanced throat cancer has a good chance of survival.

I am someone who take least amount of vegetables. And eat a lot of junk food. What could be possibility for me to get affected by cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Vegetables and fruits contain substances that are cancer protective which junk food lacks. There is no conclusive data as to what percentage of people consuming junk food would definitely have cancer but but there is no harm in avoiding it and you can try variations with your routine healthy food to make it delicious and colorful, with fruits you can try various puddings, fruit cream, custards, with vegetables nice rolls, soups sandwiches etc. Sedentary lifestyle, fatty food are known to be risk factors for cancer.

No not all types of tumour are cancerous, it may be benign. It is not related to age as cancer can affect any age group, even small babies can suffer from cancers. Cancer in early stages are usually pain less but in advance stages or if involving nerves then it may become painful.

Am I more at risk to cancer if my relatives have cancer? What are the stages of cancer? What are the symptoms of cancer?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir, cancer is usually caused by some mutations or change in genes, which is mostly due to some injury by chemicals, pollution, tobacco etc. About 5-7%cancers may be inherited from one generation to other. So there are only few types of cancers that may be inherited so don't worry. Cancer is staged according to size and it's spread. Usually there are four stages, fourth stage is when tumour spread to other organs apart from one they originated from. Cancer may present as lump, ulceration, abnormal bleeding, weight loss, altered bowel habits etc. Depending on the organ effected.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your sister. Given her present description of symptoms, she may require, firstly, a drainage of the pus and treatment with suitable antibiotics to cure bacterial infection, if any. Please connect with a breast specialist or her OB/ GYN in person for a clinical examination, and suitable treatment as would deem fit in her case. Ensure that the area, where pus comes out, is cleaned properly with a suitable antiseptic lotion, or any other medicine that her breast specialist recommends. Sooner or later, a surgical removal of the fibroadenoma is advisable to avert similar such complications in future. An excisional biopsy may be attempted as would be decided by her specialist. Simultaneously, let her keep diet and lifestyle streamlined, and stay well hydrated. She can also take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, once to twice daily. Avoid sour and high calorie food stuff including any kind of fast foods. Hope this helps. You can connect for an integrative traction any time. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely
