Do any medications exacerbate Mass Cell Activation Syndrome? Can any meds actually CAUSE it? Pseudoephedrine maybe?

Do any medications exacerbate Mass Cell Activation Syndrome? Can any meds actually CAUSE it? Pseudoephedrine maybe?

Yes: NASIDs , opioids, and alcohol can all do it. Attached is a response from expert:There are precautions with the ingestion of narcotics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and alcohol with underlying mast cell disorders. These precautions are not contraindications and risk and benefits have to always be discussed and considered in clinical management. Reactions to these substances ...Read more

Where in a baby can you find a stem cell? Is a baby just one big mass of stem cells?

Where in a baby can you find a stem cell?  Is a baby just one big mass of stem cells?

Just like adults: Adult mesenchymal stem-stromal cells (mscs) are currently found in almost all tissues. Fat holds the greatest numbers of those cells. Associated with all blood vessels, undifferentiated cells help humans maintain homeostasis throughout life. After embryo stage, all celss change into various tissue/organ types. By time of delivery, baby has the standard complement only. ...Read more

A single cancer cell will always result later in a tumor, lesion or mass? Does a cancer cell always multiplies with/without intervention?

A single cancer cell will always result later in a tumor, lesion or mass? Does a cancer cell always multiplies with/without intervention?

Nobody really knows: I would say NO. Surely many individual cancer cells die or don't reproduce, for any number of reasons. Suppose there are 37 trillion cells in the human body (like some websites say). Even if only one in 3.7 billion cells turned cancerous, that would be 10,000 cancers cells... and nobody walks around with that many tumors. That suggests cancer cells must be dying or failing to multiply. ...Read more

Get seen now.: Your question is incomplete and I am assuming you mean that you have blood in your urine. Call your primary care doc or your oncologist or go to an urgent care or ER to be evaluated to find out what could be causing this. ...Read more

BRCA stage3 FNAB report on MRM hypoechoic mass is fatty cells and stroma is there a possibilty to become malignant ? Is it necessary to be removed?47y

BRCA stage3 FNAB report on MRM hypoechoic mass is fatty cells and stroma is there a possibilty to become malignant ? Is it necessary to be removed?47y

It depends: I am not necessarily worried it may turn in to cancer but rather that the biopsy did not sample the tissue in that mass that is malignant. If the mammogram is very worrisome for cancer but the FNAB gave those results then your doctor may consider rebiopsy. Keep in mind FNA biopsy is less reliable than core-needle biopsy ...Read more
