Various techniques have been tried by patients and recommended by physicians to prevent, lessen the severity or treat chemotherapy side effects such as peripheral neuropathy.  There is no "one-size-fits-all" regimen that works for everyone.  Much of the treatment is based on trial and error and finding what combination of interventions works for the individual. Report any unusual feeling you may h....

No, but. Cancer during pregnancy is not an uncommon thing but cancer itself rarely affects the growing baby directly. The cancers that tend to occur during pregnancy are also more common in younger people. These cancers include - Cervical Cancer, Breast Cancer, Thyroid Cancer, Melanoma, Gestational Trophoblastic Cancer. Breast cancer happens to be the most common type diagnosed during pre....

You may find the hot flashes gradually decreasing with time after you start taking Arimidex; many women do. But we're talking years, not months, for them to vanish entirely. Some women even deal with hot flashes (usually much less intense and much less frequent) for the rest of their lives. Don't mean to discourage you, but that's reality; there's not much you can do for them. Few antidepressant ....

Generally, women having their routine mammogram will receive a letter within one month with normal results. But if the doctor finds something suspicious, they’ll call you back, mostly within just 5 days, to take fresh pictures or other tests. Yes, that call may seem to be scary, but a suspicious finding doesn’t always mean you have cancer. It may be only a dense breast tissue, a cyst or even a tum....

A number of masses can be found within the female breast but not all of them are cancerous. So, don’t panic if you find a mass. Among the benign masses, most are only an inconvenience and have no threat, but some may be associated with increased long-term risk of breast cancer. A fibroadenoma is a benign mass of fibrous and glandular tissue. They are most commonly found in women aged 15 to 35. Th....

Be thankful if you are lactose intolerant because it could save you from certain cancers including breast cancer. Some researchers from Sweden said in 2014 that people who are lactose intolerant might be less likely to develop lung, breast and ovarian cancers. Low dairy consumption seems to reduce the risk in lactose intolerant people. However, a study didn’t find any protective effects in their f....

  Only decades ago doctors and health professionals used to warn about the negative effects of having too much coffee because of the risk that caffeine was believed to have on your body. However, the last decade has shed so much light on the health benefits of coffee and its relationship with cancer. Based on which variant of a certain gene a woman possessed, a coffee intake rate of at least tw....

  The so-called racial gap in breast cancer care has long been suggested by researchers, with black and Hispanic women less likely to get recommended breast cancer treatments than white patients. Researchers claim financial factors such as economic and social class or access to insurance alone can't explain this "gap”. Even after accounting for those differences, racial disparities in breast ca....

Yes it is. Women who consume even a few drinks a week possess an increased risk for breast cancer. Scientists still haven’t yet found out exactly why this happens. Alcohol may raise estrogen levels, an important factor in the development of breast cancer. One characteristic of a cancer cell is that it multiplies out of control and in some types of breast cancer; high circulating levels of oestroge....

Direct breastfeeding could cut the chance of breast cancer by up to one fifth. It’s actually a “powerful strategy” to reduce the risk of cancer for you, especially the most aggressive types of disease. Scientists believe the high hormone levels required for lactation appears to affect cell growth, protecting the breast from changes which increase the risk of breast cancer. The fact women do not us....

HER2 is a gene that creates HER2 proteins or receptors. These receptors help control growth and repair of breast cells. An overexpression of HER2 protein causes out-of-control reproduction of breast cells. HER2-positive breast cancers are known to be more aggressive than HER2-negative breast cancers and are more likely to recur than HER2-negative breast cancer. The recurrence usually takes plac....

It completely depends on the situation. In Kyphoplasty, either a spine surgeon or an interventional radiologist tries to treat a vertebral fracture using surgical cement. It effectively reduces the pain. In case of a cancer patient, the process accompanies radiofrequency ablation to remove cancer tissue. Most of the cancer patients with vertebral fractures don’t need Kyphoplasty. The fracture c....

First of all, breast cancer isn't a death sentence: overall, about 60% of women survive breast cancer, and go on to live long and healthy lives. The percentage can be as high as 99%, depending on the particular type and stage of breast cancer. Stage 1, 2, 3 is easily curable by surgery followed by preceding chemotherapy or radiotherapy. If breast cancer is found before it has spread outside of ....

Breast cancer can be diagnosed at different stages and can grow at different rates. This means people can have different treatments, depending on what will work best for them. To determine if your symptoms are caused by breast cancer or a benign breast condition, your doctor will do a thorough physical exam in addition to a breast exam. They may also request one or more diagnostic tests to help....

Yes. In both cases, the reason is due to the activities of estrogen receptor (specifically Estrogen Receptor alpha), which is known to be a tumour promoter. Endometrial cancer is a type of uterine cancer that involves the lining of the uterus. It is seen in women who take estrogen-only and still have a uterus. This is due to estrogen's effect on this lining, which builds up with prolonged estro....

When you think about breast cancer, what do you think of? A young woman with nipple discharge? Probably not. And that's because we often associate a lump as a sign of breast cancer, as well as assuming it only affects older women. But what about the other symptoms? There are some lesser known indicators which hint on your breast cancer possibility. So, keep in mind these symptoms also: Ch....

  Yes…!! It is safe for health. This fruit looks like a small pumpkin and is green to pale yellow in colour. It is one of the most popular natural diet supplements. It contains Hydroxy citric acid (HCA) that is obtained from its rind and it is capable of burning fats much faster than other supplements for weight loss. This acid assists in blocking an enzyme called citrate lyase which usually co....

Surgery is only the first step towards fuller and more beautiful breasts. Following your breast enhancement surgery, the recovery period is a crucial time during which your body heals and your new breast implants settle into their proper position and shape. Following Breast Implant surgery you can: Drink alcoholic beverages only after you have stopped taking your pain medications. Sleep....

There are several persistent internet rumours about potential causes of breast cancer. One is that wearing a bra, or wearing an underwire bra, causes the disease. The idea that bras may cause cancer was fuelled by the 1995 book called Dressed to Kill by Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer. It claims that women who wear underwire bras for 12 hours a day have a much higher risk of developing brea....
