Elevated lipase level two days in row. Recent VSG surgery. No pain or other symtpoms. Just lipase. Does this mean cancer?
Pancreatitis or VSG: A vertical sleeve gastrectomy removes about 75% of stomach, including the part that covers a lot of the pancreas. Both surgery in this area and general anesthesia can cause elevations in lipase, which represent pancreatitis. CANCER NEVER ELEVATES LIPASE (very rare cases). Lipase must have been measured because of pain -- no other reason. Could also be a leak or an ulcer. Rec endoscopy & CT. ...Read more
My PET read..symetric intense increase uptake in the bilateral palatine lingual tonsils. Hypermetobolic prominent level 2&5 nodes reactive. Cancer?
Unlikely tobe cancer: This PET report looks more like Tonsitlitis(Sore throat or Phayngitis). A clinical examination by a doctor will be more useful to make the correct diagnosis rather than relying on a PET scan. Let your PCP or ENT doctor guide you. Unless there are large lymph nodes in your neck, I would not think that you have cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Was told to see dr. Due to beta proyien levels being too high. Is this dangerous, and what could be the cause of this? I've survived cancer 2 times, i'm a 48yr old female. Don't drink, or smoke, and am not over weight, or out of shape.
I : I assume you meant to type beta protein. Beta amyloid proteins in the blood are often associated with a predisposition to familial alzheimers. The proteins per se do not cause alzheimers. You should consult with a neurologist who will possible suggest other testing and do baseline tests of memory and cognitive function. It is good that you do not drink or smoke and generally keep yourself in shape. This finding is not related to your cancer history. In itself the elevated protein is not dangerous but bears watching. Good luck to you. ...Read more
My tg level after thyrodomicty because of hurtle adenoma is less than.2 and TSH is.04 but have tgab is it mean cancer?Which is good tg and TSH or tgab
Quit worrying about: Your thyroid cancer specialist will guide you further. I would ask you not to worry about these blood tests as they are not particularly reliable. As long as your cancer has been removed and it was early, you have little chance of recurrence of your cancer. Most times we have to rely on a visible tumor growth before we can take it as evidence of recurrence, blood tests are not all that helpful. ...Read more

Is TSH and tg level indicate to recurrence thyroid cancer or tgab level? After 6 month after tt TSH is .04 and tg .2 but there is tgab should worry?
TgAb: It depends upon what the tgab level is. If the tgab levels are less than 22 iu/ml or 4 iu/ml depending upon which assay your laboratory uses, then there is no concern. If the tgab levels are elevated, the tg (thyroglobulin) test results are unreliable and your doctor may order other tests such as neck ultrasound or nuclear total body iodine scans. The TSH level is where it should be. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: CRP are elevated in a nonspecific manner. They can track infections and other inflammatory conditions. They can also elevate as a reaction like to a cancer. Screening should be done appropriate for your age. It is not necessary to look beyond screening without signs or symptoms. Ask your physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
