Dear , the most common problem a 29 year old can have is prostatitis that is an infection. I assume you have consulted a doctor as you say that you have a problem with your prostate which cannot be known unless you do per rectal examination, ultrasound and urine examination. Most commonly it is secondarily effected from a urinary tract infection, and some sexually transmitted diseases. Treatment would primarily include antibiotics and analgesics. Healthy diet, good hygiene and protection during sexual exposure are important to avoid recurrences. Regards

Smokers are everyone not effected to cancer. It depends person to person. Because of smoking cancer comes that is healthy advice. It not means everyone affected. So do not worry about this. Better to quit smoking. You have pathophobia means fear of diseases. When you need smoking at that time take chicklets or any other chocolates or eat anything. Refresh your mind with tea, coffee or juice or any other small item of foods. Be sociable and be friendly with others. Do not think about cancer. If you think you are in very trouble. Quit smoking. Feel always I have no bad habits. I am very healthy person. Feel and think in a positive manner. It will be always best for your health. Ok best of luck.

Dear lybrate-user, we are sorry to hear that your father is suffering. For pain relief opioids can be used which can be oral or can be used as a skin patch which works for upto 3 days. This comes in various strengths. In this era of targeted therapy, chemotherapy is not the only available treatment. Also, there are many myths associated with chemotherapy use, with improved supportive care, chemotherapy is not only effective but is safe and relatively hassle free. There are also multiple oral targeted agents (not chemotherapy) available for lung cancer which if used in patients with certain specific genetic mutations in the tumor are extremely effective and well tolerated. I suggest you would do better by seeking help of a medical oncologist who can guide you regarding targeted therapy and pain relief so as to make your father more comfortable and have a better quality of life. Best wishes.

1. Take one tablet of crocin pain relief sos after food upto a maximum of 3 tablets daily 2. Apply volini gel twice daily 3. Give warm compress locally 4. Take rest if you have recurrent attack of neck pain a) take x ray/mri cervical spine to exclude spondylitis and consult orthopedic specialist b) sometimes it could be due to bad sitting posture while reading or working on computer. Adopt proper sitting posture, put neck rest, use soft pillow while sleeping c) do physio therapy and neck exercise after consulting physiotherapist.

Sir, I have a family history of cancer patients and so fear and want to be alert. Want to know what is the simplest and cheapest method / tests that can detect any budding problem in my body. Thanks.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Sir, it depends on what kind of cancers your family was suffering from. Otherwise cheapest and the simplest thing is regularly examination of self and if you feel any lump, any abnormal ulceration or any abnormal symptoms, see a doctor. Chest xray, ultrasound, are good for organs not visible by examination. You can also check blood for psa CEA levels and routine hemogram. Best is not to ignore any symptoms, usually we see patients have long standing problems but they ignore thinking it's just normal. Any changes in body must be checked.

Sir, some extract is being studied to prevent cancer treatment related side effects, like nausea vomiting etc. No preventive role in malignancy has been proven.

A number of studies suggest that current use of OC’s appears to slightly increase the risk of breast cancer, especially among younger women. But for short courses it does not harm u. Women who use OC’s have reduced risks of ovarian and endometrial cancer. This protective effect increases with the length of time oral contraceptives are used.

How cancer occurs and how can we know that. What are the tips to identify and how we can cure that. Is there any cure for cancer?

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
Cancer is a manufacturing defect when new cells are being formed. But this defect has a unique capacity to defy the body's immunity and multiply uncontrollably. When our body's systems are constantly renewing themselves after wear and tear by creating new cells, sometimes somethings go wrong and a defective cell is formed. Body's immunity identifies a bad cell and removes it. But when this step is skipped they keep on growing first locally in some organ and then by spreading through either lymph channels or blood stream. Based on whether the cells are growing at one place or have spread to other places the symptoms change. Locally it is either due to any lump / swelling of crores of cancer cells or due to intereference of these cells in the organ's function. For example cancer in liver cannot be easily felt from above as swelling, but it can cause symptoms like indigestion or jaundice due to interference in liver's function of helping digestion. A breast cancer on the other hand usually presents as a lump in breast or axilla. The best way a person can do, is to identify and respect all the symptoms they have, which persist or are unusual. Some good habits like breast self examination are useful in identifying a symptomless early stage cancer. Cure is a word which is used with a very high caution. Cancer is defined by two most important characteristics - metastasis i. E. Spreading to other places different than site/organ of origin, and recurrence. Few cancer cells usually remain dormant after completion of initial treatment and then re grow after some time. There are many reason and factors helping it or acting against it. So cure is a word usually not used in cancer. And that's why patients are kept on strict surveillance after treatment for 5-10 years. Experts in medical fraternity believe that a patient surviving for more than 5 years may be called cured. But there are many patients who recur with same disease even after 5 years, 10 years even more than that. The goal of treatment of cancer is to improve survival and give best quality of life possible to each patient. In medicine always is always wrong and never is never right.

I'm 30 year old woman, my both breasts have pain for 1 year, and also those are differ in sizes. What should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Difference in size of both breasts may be natural if it is from the beginning. But if the asymmetry has become recently then it needs to be evaluated. Pain in breast if it is cyclical that means increases when periods are nearing is normal due to edema or swelling of breasts. Restricting salt intake and hot fomentation helps. You can also take evion and primosa which may help in reducing inflammation of ducts. Sports bra or proper breast support helps.

What is the main cause of cancer or tumor? Do we really know the causative agent for cancer?

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.
