How can I recover from cancer without any costly medicine but with soft physical exercise? Is it possible please tell me.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Sir it is possible to prevent cancer before its manifestations by dietary manipulations and exercises, but once if somebody suffers from cancer, he has to take treatment as decided by oncologist depending on site, size, stage and histopathology. It could be chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery or combination of all.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your mother. Given to understand that her cancer is now metastatic, I believe her oncologist is doing the needful to deal with complications and help her out suitably. Her present symptomatology, as you describe, is most probably owing to the cancer's spread to brain, and may as well be due to the treatment side effects. Her oncologist, nevertheless, can best decide on the palliative measures/ treatment as is contextually appropriate in her case. I would advise to not stop any medication without her oncologist's concurrence as it may worsen her condition still. Please do have a structured discussion with her oncologist, discuss all her present concerns and proceed as recommended. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely

Dear Lybrate user, the possibility of cancer turning to be hereditary depends on type of cancer, age at presentation and mutations in cells. Genetic counseling along with genetic testing for hereditary cancer can be done to know the risk of having hereditary cancer.

Prostate Biopsies - Ways You Can Avoid It!

Prostate Biopsies - Ways You Can Avoid It!

One of the most common issues with old age in men is the enlarged prostate. Any difficulty with urination (no constant stream, difficulty initiating, or incomplete emptying of the bladder for instance), and the first suspect is an enlarged prostate. These symptoms are followed by a digital rectal exam to check for an enlarged prostate. Once confirmed, the next step is to check for levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA). If both the exam and the PSA are positive, it could mean prostate cancer. As with any cancer, it is believed that sooner it is diagnosed and the treatment is started, the better.

Historically, the best way to rule out the prostate cancer had been to do a prostate biopsy. This is a minor invasive procedure, wherein biopsies are taken from various regions of the prostate which are known to develop cancer (about 12). A disadvantage of this procedure includes missing out on the front part of the prostate which can also develop cancer. Secondly, it is not a very pleasant experience and given a chance, most men would not want to have it done.

There is good news for these men who would like to avoid prostate biopsies. The first is the multiparametric MRI which uses no x-rays and is considered very safe with extremely accurate results. This MRI exam requires about an hour, and once the images are obtained, the doctor will analyse these images and check for several parameters to assess for prostate cancer. The absence of cancer can be confirmed with up to 90% accuracy, which is far greater than with usual biopsies. If there is a possibility of cancer, then a biopsy can be done to confirm it.

Also, these images indicate the exact region where cancer likely is, and this guides the doctor to biopsy only where absolutely essential. The chances of false positive and false negative results are reduced drastically. The one disadvantage here is that MRI detected biopsies usually tend to be of a higher grade which requires immediate treatment.

Another way to reduce chances of the biopsy by 30% to 50% is by the 4K test. It helps detect a variety of prostate issues including cancer. It can be used once higher levels of PSA is identified and before going for a biopsy. It combined 4 prostate-specific biomarkers with clinical information to accurately provide men with a risk of developing prostate cancer. It can be used even after negative biopsies to confirm the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

These two measures can drastically reduce the incidence of prostate biopsies, which is neither pleasant for the patient nor very effective for the doctor.

Symptoms and Treatment of Ovarian cancer

Symptoms and Treatment of Ovarian cancer

Amongst the different types of gynecological cancers prevalent today, ovarian cancer is associated with the highest rate of fatality. This type of cancer refers to tumours that grow in the ovaries. In most cases, these develop on the outer lining or epithelium of the ovary. Though this type of cancer is difficult to treat in its later stages, if diagnosed early enough it can be easily managed.

In the early stages of ovarian cancer, very few symptoms may be present. Many women do not experience any symptoms at all. The symptoms that may be experienced can be associated with other conditions and hence often go unrecognized. However, in the case of ovarian cancer, these symptoms will gradually increase and worsen with time. Some of the early symptoms of ovarian cancer could include:

  • Pain in the lower stomach or pelvic area
  • Back aches
  • Indigestion
  • Frequent urge to urinate
  • Painful intercourse
  • Change in bowel habits
  • Nausea
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite or feeling full without eating too much

Ovarian cancer usually affects women over the age of 65. Women with a family history of breast cancer or ovarian cancer have a higher risk of developing these tumours. Endometriosis and hormone replacement therapy could also increase one’s risk of ovarian cancer.

As with other types of cancer, treatment for ovarian cancer depends largely on how far it has advanced. The main forms of treatment include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Surgery is usually the first step of treating ovarian cancer. This involves a partial or complete hysterectomy. In the former, only one ovary and the adjoining fallopian tube is removed while in the latter both ovaries, fallopian tubes and the uterus are removed. The lymph nodes around the reproductive system and the fatty tissue in the abdomen may also be removed. A woman can conceive a child after a partial hysterectomy. In cases of advanced ovarian cancer, surgery may also include removing cancerous cells from the urinary system, intestines and spleen.

Surgery is usually followed by chemotherapy, medication for targeted therapy or hormone therapy. Radiation is rarely used to treat ovarian cancer. In addition, many patients also require counselling to cope with body change issues and the loss of sexual desire. Ovarian cancer can recur and hence it is also important to get regularly screened for any signs of recurrent tumours. In cases of recurrent cancer, chemotherapy is the most preferred form of treatment. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

In some cases only stage 3 and 4 cancers can be delayed with chemo - radiation. It is to be remember always that first best and safe treatment for advanced cancers is pain relief treatment with MIPI. Only then one should take other treatments. Pain free journey of cancer ie pain free cancer treatment helps in prolongation of life. Contact on phone or over lybrate for further discussion.

Sore, ulceration which are long standing, lump in neck, bleeding from throat or mouth. Difficulty in swallowing, breathing etc. Throat pain esp radiating to ears. Some premalignant conditions like white patch, leukoplakia, reddish patch, erythroplakia, reduced mouth opening etc need evaluation. A detailed oral and neck examination and laryngoscopy can help you ruling out cancer.

I am 39 years old and a mother of 3 year old girl. I have been experiencing pain in both my breasts since last two days and feel lumps too. This happens usually before my menstrual cycle and pain and lumps fade away by the end of the periods. My periods is due in 10 days time. The pain already stared and I feel lots of lumps. Should I go for cancer screening now or wait till my periods get over?

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.
