She has diagnosed of breast cancer going through chemo for the first time after chemo she got lung infection and after 18 days got infection of herpes that caused delay in the second chemotherapy please recommend some diet as per her condition we are giving her wheatgrass guide soya milk and a type of kadha made by the leaves of ramphal along with medicines. Also describe why she got infected again an again.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Patan
As she has been started on chemotherapy, her immunity will come down. Means her body's power to fight against infection is down thats why she is getting recurrent infection. But no need to worry, just give her nutritious food and treat the infections accordingly.

I smoke about 4-5 cigarettes per day. How much probability of having lung cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
It's difficult to calculate the probability, there are some risk calculators available but it's actually difficult to exactly predict as there may be other confounding factors like pollution,environmental factors, occupational hazards, genetic factors. Smoking is not only related to lung cancer but it may lead to head and neck cancer, gastrointestinal, bladder etc.

Can we share our food with the cancer patients. Or can we eat with him or his left food ?

It is not proper for a cancer patient to eat someone else's left over food. You could however eat with him and share the same food cooked at home.

Hi, I got a small tumour on my tongue from past 4 Years. Once I had undergone operation to get rid of this but again after few months its starts growing. I have gone through some sites and I have seen some pictures which are close to my type and they are symptoms of oral cancer. Please suggest doctors.

Your tongue tumour was removed what was biopsy result. Pl. Show to oncosurgeon immediatly and follow his advise. Reoccurence of tumour is not a good sign.

There are numbers of family members did suffer by cancer. Is there any chance for me too? I am now 38 years old healthy & energetic guy. Having habit of doing exercise 5 days in an week. I don't have any such health problem as yet. But use to lead very hectic corporate life. Use to have non homemade food almost regular basis by compulsion. Only problem which I realize that my present memory is not so strong & use to forget small things very frequently.

YES. Your chances of carrying CANCER are very strong. Cancer is a GENETIC disorder and usually lingers on in all family members. It travels down the line. But today we have the technology to change the blueprint of the chromosome and help the next of the generation from not accepting that blueprint. We advice you to take the LIFE SYSTEM test available in INDIA with MEHAK WELLNESS CENTRE, MUMBAI. Get your test done and if negative, live a worry free life, but if found positive, then it could be corrected and you may never experience a physical pain.

I have a pain feeling in my right breast recently. I found a lump inside. What should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear mam, pain in breast at your age is usually due to hormonal changes and are mostly self limiting. You can take pain killers as and when required, use sports bra and proper breast support. You can also take vitamin e supplement to reduce inflammation and pain. As far as lump is concerned you should get an ultrasound done for breast and if suspicious then fnac from lump. Usually at your age it should be fibroadenoma but still one should be cautious. If fibroadenoma then you should simply observe it by getting periodical ultrasound done to monitor it's size.

I want to know that what is cancer? Can cancer spread from one person to another?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
no cancer does not spread from person to person. it is a disease where growth of one particular type of cells becomes unregulated and it interferes with the working of other cells
