Lung CA: I'm sorry to hear your family is going through this difficult time. It sounds like he has lung CA with metastasis. Has he started Chemo or radiation. This may help keep him comfortable and/or prevent further metastasis. You need to discuss his prognosis with his HEM/ONC. Either way he should get his affairs in order. Prepare for the worst & hope for the best. That time clock is out of our hands ...Read more
Maybe CIN2?: "Stage" isn't normally used in connection with HPV. If you've had an abnormal pap smear, I wonder if you have CIN2. CIN means cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, with increasing severity (further along toward possible cancer) for 1, 2, and 3. If you have CIN2, follow your doctor's advice about treatment and follow-up. That will prevent progression to cancer. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

It is curable.: All breast cancer is bad, but the prognosis changes with stages. So the lowest stage has the best prognosis and the highest stage, stage 4, has the worst prognosis. Technically there is a stage 0 which is something called dcis, which hasn't invaded out of the ducts. Stage 1 is better than stage 2 but stage 2 is definitely curable. You can never know you are cured for sure so follow up is necessary. ...Read more

My mum biopsy revealed squamous cell carcinoma grade 2 (in her mouth). I know it's a type of skin cancer but will it spread?
Needs to be staged. : The grade is an assessment of the degree of differentiation of the cell line based on its appearqnce and is used as an estimation of the aggressiveness. Grade 2 is typically worse than grade 1 but not as bad as grade 3. This does not necessarily mean that it has or will spread.

Survival rate of using chemoembolization 4 advançed metastatic liver? We took chemo for 2.5 yrs..Spread 2 whole liver & 2 spots in lungs?65 yrs old
Survival: I guess it really depends on whether the lung nodules are metastases. If so, they would be considered extra hepatic metastases, and survival even with chemoembolization decreases considerably. In liver only disease, survival rates are about 2/3 at 1 year, 1/3 at 2 years, wih median survival of around 14 months (median survival with extra hepatic mets is around 3 months). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ice reduces the swelling. Good luck, continue o ...Read more
