Pictures: Not sure what you are asking but if you are concerned about something in your mouth and want to compare to see if it is early onset cancer you can always search on line but i would see a specialist in oral pathology like an oral surgeon.
Dr. Theodore Davantzis
Dentistry 40 years experience
Question?: You can search the internet for oral cancer pictures, but that does not give you the knowledge or experience to diagnose a cancerous lesion. Call an oral surgeon for an appointment. It may save your life.
Dr. Louis Gallia
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 45 years experience
Examination: Pictures not useful. If you have changes in your mouth that concern you, see an oral surgeon.

What is the difference in the various stages of colon cancer?

Dr. Joseph Roosth
Internal Medicine 35 years experience
Survival, but.....: Used to be, the short answer was simply survival risk with stage 1 having the best prognosis and stage IV the worst. While stages 1/2 still have the highest survival rates but improved surgical techniques and chemotherapy and i'd add lifestyle changes, have leveled the playing field greatly. Colon cancer, even advanced is often quite treatable.

Outsmart them!: To bed earlier. Try variety! eat with them! give them what tastes good like home made protein smoothies with fresh fruit juices and whey protein powder. Almond butter with toast. Avoid breakfast out of a box! make some turkey bacon. Play some upbeat music and get them going. Good luck!

It's only for some: Provenge (sipuleucel-t) is used in a very specific clinical situation with prostate cancer--definitely not indicated for everyone. The best treatment depends on the stage and grade of the cancer.
Dr. William A Biermann
Medical Oncology 46 years experience
It is a complicated and very expensive treatment that has a small benefit for a very small group of patients. Most oncologist nationally use it very infrequently

Not necessarily: Periodontal disease is a more likely cause. However, bleeding anywhere is a cause for concern and you should consult you doctor for an examination and evaluation.
