Hi,

Customer:

Hello Doctor

Dr. Singh :

Smoking and not eating can certainly cause lightheadedness and nausea. Other causes of this can be an infection, dehydration, pancreatitis, anxiety, gallbladder issues, reflux, etc. I recommend that you try to cut back and ultimately stop smoking, be sure to eat a healthy well balanced diet, drink plenty of fluids. If your symptoms persist, worsen or you develop other symptoms then you need to see your doctor for further work up.

Customer:

No this does not appear to be consistent with cancer at all.

Dr. Singh :

I would not worry about cancer.

Dr. Singh :

But do stop smoking for that is a risk for developing cancer.
