Tumors That Get Bigger During Pregnancy?
I was diagnosed with a tumor in the tongue and continued to enlarge, because I was pregnant, the doctor could not take any action and administer the medicine. Are there any solutions? Because the new operation can be done after giving birth
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. Pregnancy is a special condition for women. A woman needs to take more care of herself in the form of limiting something that she might normally consume, such as coffee, adapting to changes in her body, and must be more careful about the medication and actions taken on her for the safety of her fetus. Even medicines that are safe and are sold freely, not all of them can be consumed by pregnant women. So it's natural if your doctor suspends treatment for you for the safety of your baby.
But of course, on the other hand the tumor you are experiencing must be treated. In dealing with this, your doctor must be careful in dealing with these two problems. What he had in mind was which of these two conditions was the most vulnerable, and the most risky if ignored. Practically, your doctor must choose, if the tumor is treated whether it will harm your fetus, and whether your fetus takes precedence, whether the tumor will harm you. Once again, because we don't know the specifics of the tumor severity that you are experiencing, we cannot confirm whether the judgment is up to "life threatening", but it is more or less like that.
At one point, if the tumor is indeed dangerous if left untreated, it could be that your baby was sacrificed for your recovery. But what is clear is that as a patient, what is important for you to do is just a routine control, both to the obstetrician, and to the doctor who handles the tumor, can be ENT doctor or oncologist. This is important because the doctor needs to see the development of you and your fetus to be able to make decisions, to what extent the tumor can be left to be said to be dangerous. For more details, you can ask the doctor, how often you should go back, how severe your condition is now, and how to risk going forward if no immediate action is taken. The ones who can answer this question in detail are doctors who treat you directly.
Meanwhile, you just need to maintain a healthy lifestyle by avoiding cigarette smoke and stress, adequate rest, multiply the consumption of fruits and vegetables, consumption of vitamins for pregnancy and limit physical activity. So, hopefully answering your question.
