Frequently Asked Questions

It is not clichéd advice when doctors recommend you to be more active in your everyday life. This is not just to maintain your weight but that is also because a balanced weight will prevent the risks of Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer doctors in Delhi also recommend the longer you breastfeed, the higher the protection you get from the risks of getting Breast Cancer. These have been suggested after a number of tests and research being carried out. Your everyday life has a major impact on the health of your body, even a little goes a long way. While there are many diets that will come and go as mere fads, it is important for you to identify the needs of your body and have a balanced diet. This will help you control a wide range of problems like cholesterol, heart problems, diabetes, etc. to list a few.

Owing to the awareness and research being done for the prevention and early detection of Breast Cancer by doctors in Delhi, it is possible for everyone to conduct a breast cancer exam for themselves at home. Regular self-examination can lead to early detection and treating it successfully. These are the three steps for your self-examination:

  • The first obvious signs of Breast Cancer can be detected from the shape, size and colour of the breasts. If you do notice something out of the ordinary, you should look out for any abnormal swelling or distortion to the shape.
  • You have to then raise your arms and check for any fluid from the nipples. It can be yellow, blood or even milky. Another major sign of breast cancer is inverted nipples, instead of pointing outward.
  • You then have to lie down and check for any lumps.

This is a debatable answer because it all depends on what stage the doctor detected Ovarian Cancer. It also depends on what kind of cancer you have, other medical problems that you may be going through and the stage you are in; all play a role in determining how quickly you will recover from Ovarian Cancer. The kind of treatment you get is also a major factor that will start playing a role in your journey. It is always better when the cancer is regional rather than distant, where it is suspended in different parts of the body. Ovarian cancer is definitely curable but it is the procedure, time and how you get your treatment done. Getting medical treatment for any disease or problem is stressful. This is why you have to ensure that you are comfortable with whoever is giving you treatment.

Determining the stage of any cancer means that your doctor will try to determine if cancer has spread and to what degree it has spread in your body. It is contained in one area and has not spread much. It is called localised cancer. These are a lot easier to cure and you have a high chance of survival. However, if cancer has spread, it is called distant. There is a lot of chance of survival in these situations as well. However, the treatment options may get limited and extremely strenuous. Only your Ovarian Cancer specialist in Delhi will be able to give you a proper diagnosis of what stage of cancer you are in. However, the general analysis that is done determines the range of your cancer from Stage I (1) to Stage IV (4). It also needs to be understood that everyone’s cancer is different and may require different treatment

Lung cancer specialists in Delhi do want to put a lot of focus on workplace hazards and talk about the increased risks of lung cancer if you work in an environment that has exposure to radon gas, which is released in the air as a result of uranium reacting with the soil and breaking down. Many other industries cause exposure to asbestos and other cancer-causing substances like arsenic, chromium and nickel. Family medical histories also play a significant role in our lives.

Doctors are able to detect when cancer has been developed the older cells do not die and get discarded as they normally would have.

Cancer cells can develop from a variety of sources and reasons. It is true that your genes play a major role in developing cancer-causing cells, but your lifestyle can have a direct impact on your health too. For example, smoking is the biggest reason for lung cancer in almost all its patients. Your lifestyle may also include things that are not in your control at all. You may get exposed to a cancer-causing environment that contains a lot of harmful agents. It could be where you work, where you live or any other aspect.

Different kinds of cancers are very common today and can be of varying nature. However, cancer specialists are yet to develop a complete “cure” for the disease. There are many treatments that will work to reduce the growth of the cells, to finally stop their growth. Cancer specialists in Gurgaon have seen significant results from various treatments. It is possible to cure cancer of these treatments completely and go back to completely normal life as well. Some of these treatments are surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, bone marrow transplant and many others.

Like any other virus or bacteria in the body, cancer-causing cells can travel within the body too. This process for cancer-causing cells is called metastasis. It can travel through the bloodstream or even through the lymph system. They need a way through which they can travel easily. This is also what will add complications to your case. This is what allows cancer to spread and it may also take time for its symptoms to show up. You will have to get tested again and see the extent to which cancer has spread.

All cancers develop in the cells of the body first. Therefore, it is an internal issue that will soon show signs in a physical manner. This is why cancer doctors in Delhi emphasize not ignoring any strange growth or lumps in your body. They are the most obvious signs of cancer development.

All you can do is eat healthily and exercise regularly. These basic steps in your daily life can go a long way.

As older cells do not get removed from the body, they begin to crowd around the new cells and prevent your body from functioning as it normally would have.

There is no single amount that can determine when you may be at risk for lung cancer. Your lung cells may be able to cope with the sudden increase in tobacco intake.

Smoking is one of the biggest reasons for lung cancer and many other complications.
