At The End Stages Of Lymphoma A Mode Would Prob Be At Least 5cm Or Bigger Right
?: I'm not sure i understand the question; however, no absolute size cutoff establishes "end stage" lymphoma. Lymphomas are often seen that have very large lymph nodes. That might be an adverse prognostic factor (staging: x = bulky) but doesn't necessarily mean end stage. What is important are lymphoma type, prognostic factors, and response to treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the avg age of throat or lung cancer? Can you get this at 38 or would it be at a later age?
Yes: The median age for lung ca is 72. This not the avg. It the point where 1/2 are younger and 1/2 are older. The risk of lung ca in 30's is 1.3%. The median age for laryngeal ca is 63. However the number of patients developing. Ca really spikes up at 45 yrs and older. So lung ca at 38 fairly unlikely but laryngeal ca is possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm at the start of the 11th week of pregrancy . Is it possible not to feel any symptomes at all at this stage?
A couple of times as of late, my stool comes out with a bit of a 'tail' just at the end. So it's normal size, but thinner at the very end. Problem?
Less worries please: Stool texture (regardless of volume or frequency of movements) , shape, & caliber are affected by multiple factors (fiber intake, bacterial load, GI transit, fluid secretion, sphincter and rectal tone, etc.) Share a photo with your GI doc for evaluation as warranted. ...Read more
What lymph node "group" or area does lymphoma typically start at. I heard it normally starts at the callie bone or chin & grow up to size of lemon ?
In bladder Ca, does the # of recurrences of mult. tumors affect their atypia. If so, is there a stat. to quant that the Ca will go beyond stage one.
Bladder cancer: The number of recurrences and number of tumors do not determine whether the cancer will progress beyond Stage 1. It is the grade and stage of the tumors which will be the predictor. High grade tumors recur and can progress into muscle invasive tumors eventually involving the muscle. 70% of low grade superficial tumors can recur but will not advance as far as the stage. ...Read more

Salivary gland: This sounds like sialoadenitis which may be due to a sialoith. Those are fancy words for a inflammation of the salivary gland possibly due to a stone. There are other causes which should be fully evaluated by an ear nose and throat physician. This may require a sialogram or other imaging procedure but a physical exam and history is required first. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
At what stage of pregnancy can we get the 3D ultrasound done?
And the utlrasound that we sould have at 20 weeks can be done at 24 week or its late?
Would 14 weeks be too early for the routine anatomy ultrasound compared to doing it at 18-20wks? Would there be a big diff in fetal size 14wk vs. 18wk?
Talk to MD: The perinatologist is the best one to answer this question. Yes there is a big difference in size between a 14 wks fetus to a 20 week fetus, so yes it will be easier to do a screening ultrasound with a bigger baby. However, if you have concerns related to your pregnancy, or perhaps difficulty with a previous pregnancy, you should talk to md. ...Read more
How significant is it on a stress echocardiogram that one cannot reach target heartbeat even at end of stage 3?
Stress test: Multiple causes. Maybe you are on a beta blocker? This will prevent you reaching target rate. If you are really fit, your target rate may need more exertion. If your stress test was done for suspected coronary artery disease and you did not reach target, then information may be misleading. Talk with your doctor - if high risk for coronar artery disease, then condiser a chemical nuclear heart scan. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If a child is showing signs of autism at an early age, 17 months, does that mean they are more likely to be on the more severe end of the spectrum?
Not necessarily: I find 17 months towards the later end of showing some suggestive findings. Autism is not all one entity although we tend to lump them together under one name. Most will develop many skill sets that might seem unlikely when first diagnosed. Cautious optimism should be maintained as you work with those that will provide needed therapy and direction down this unpredictable road. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
