Hold your head high; let the world know You are Proud to be an Indian. Vande Mataram and Happy Republic Day

Independence is usually important to a country. The reasons it is important is because with independence the country can make its own decisions and live by its own rules. Also they can vote and do whatever they think and not have someone telling them what to do.

The President said on the 64th Republic Day,

"The youth of India spread across villages and towns, are in the vanguard of change. The future belongs to them. They are today troubled by a range of existential doubts.

The President said the young cannot dream on an empty stomach. They must have jobs capable of serving their own as well as the nation's ambitions.

Role of Homoeopathy in a case of colon cancer

M B S (osm) M D (Hom) P G Dip (Env Stud)
Principal Devs Homoeopathic Medical college,

Colorectal cancer, commonly known as colon cancer or bowel cancer is a  Cancer from uncontrolled cell growth in the colon or rectum, or in the appendix. Genetic analysis shows that colon and rectal tumours are essentially genetically the same cancer.1 Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world, but it is more common in developed countries. Around 60% of cases were diagnosed in the developed world. It is estimated that worldwide, in 2008, 1.23 million new cases of colorectal cancer were clinically diagnosed, and that it killed 608,000 people 1.The overall incidence of colorectal cancer increased until 1985 and then began decreasing at an average rate of 1.6% per year. Deaths from colorectal cancer rank third after lung and prostate cancer for men and third after lung and breast cancer for women. Increased intake of animal fats and calories and reduced intake of fibre, fruits and vegetables, and micronutrients such as calcium, vitamin A, C and D, folic acid and selenium are associated with an increased risk of developing CRC. Bile acids are also implicated in colon carcinogenesis. Increased physical activity and use of aspirin in higher doses are associated with reduced incidence of CRC.
There are wide geographical differences in the incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC); this is partly due to the differences in dietary habits. Westernisation of the diet in Eastern countries like Japan and Singapore has lead to an increase in the incidence of colorectal cancer. Even though the population-based incidence of colorectal cancer in India is very low (< 5 per 100,000 men), it is an important cancer due to the large population affected. A majority of Indian patients are diagnosed in an advanced stage, when the chances of long-term cure are low 2
Colorectal cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in the UK. Each year over 30 000 new cases are diagnosed in England and Wales (68% colon, 32% rectal cancer) and it is registered as the underlying cause of death in about half this number. The prevalence rate per 100 000 (all ages) is 53.5 for men and 36.7 for women. The incidence increases with age, the average age at diagnosis being 60-65 years. The disease is much more common in westernized countries than in Asia or Africa 3
The disease occurs more often in upper socioeconomic populations who live in urban areas. Mortality from colorectal cancer is directly correlated with per capita consumption of calories, meat protein, and dietary fat and oil as well as elevations in the serum cholesterol concentration and mortality from coronary artery disease 4
Colon Cancer Symptoms
bleeding from rectum or blood mixed stools. Rectal bleeding may be hidden and chronic and may show up as an Iron deficiency anemia  , fatigue  and pale skin. obstructive symptoms like Abdominal distension:, pain abdomen , Unexplained, persistent nausea or vomiting, Unexplained  weight loss , Change in frequency or character of stool , ribbon-like stools  Sensation of incomplete evacuation after a bowel movement and Rectal pain: Pain rarely occurs with colon cancer and usually indicates a bulky tumor.5

In the above case all investigations were done , all investigations were pointing towards Cancer colon, only biopsy was differed, clinical correlation was tilted towards Cancer colon, at this point, I would like to emphasis that how important is the role of investigations in nosological diagnosis of a case, if investigations were not there we could have diagnosed the case as Chronic Dysentary which is common in lower socio economical group of people, Patient was followed up to 18 months diarrhoea  was controlled, general wellbeing maintained, what ever may be diagnosis, mental agony was relived by our system of medicine and established general wellbeing.
