About

Bio

I have practiced Hematology and Oncology in this community since 1995, when I left a university position and started life as a solo practitioner. Today we have five heme/onc docs and four oncology ARNPs. We are physician-owned, community based and dedicated to compassionate, evidence-based care.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

A female asked:

Most likely benign.: First, I have to know what is swollen: glands (such as salivary) or lymph nodes. Then, how often are they swollen, and for how long each time? Are they always in the same place, and are they painful if you touch them? She has no sore throat or earache, but does she have fever? Chills? Unusual sweating? Has she lost weight? If she truly has no symptoms, ok. But if she has, she should see her doctor.

Likely drug induced: There are many reasons a person may have hyponatremia. Trileptal (oxcarbazepine) commonly causes it by increasing secretion of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) from the pituitary gland. Many drugs can cause hyponatremia. You can also have hyponatremia which is not related to drugs and you will need a nephrologist (kidney specialist) to help sort out the actual reason for your low sodium.

Both lines can pass : The breast cancer genes which have been identified so far are called "autosomal" meaning that they can be passed on through either the maternal or paternal lineages.
