Are cancer patients more prone to flu complications even after they complete cancer tx? What about strep throat complications if no antibiotics tx?

Likely yes.: Cancers especially leukemias and their treatments like chemo. Have an effect on the ability of the immune system to fight diseases like flu and strep throat. Therefore it is wise to take antibiotics as strep throat can lead to more serious complications like pneumonia and sepsis where the bacteria get in the blood stream. ...Read more

I have cancer, will there be complications with a salmonella infection?

I have cancer, will there be complications with a salmonella infection?

Depends: It depends on the type of cancer, how widely spread, and how it has been treated (and responded). In general, if you have an intact immune system you should recover well from this with "supportive' treatment only (water, electrolytes, and food). If your immune system is suppressed or absent, there is some risk of prolonged illness and/or severe illness and should be treated with antibiotics. ...Read more

How long will you.Survive with triple negative breast cancer if untreated?

How long will you.Survive with triple negative breast cancer if untreated?

Don't find out: It is impossible to answer this question without knowing more, particularly what stage the cancer is at. But don't find out. Even triple negative cancer, if caught at an early stage, can be curable. Surgery, radiation and chemotherapy sound terrible and scary but are more tolerable than people think and we have become much better at managing side effects. Talk with women who have been through it. ...Read more

Liver cancer stage 4 , lung cancer and spleen cancer with cirrhosis and hep c  can I take chemotherapy treatment to reduce tumor maker?

Hmmmm: If you'd do have cancer in liver, lung, and spleen, my advice is to talk to your oncologist about how to improve your quality of life rather than improving tumor marker. As you know, chemo agents are not well tolerated in some people. ...Read more

Hi.Ovarian cancer, spread to bowel.Was considered for HIPEC but spread to small bowel means surgery not possible.Any alternatives to palliative chemo?

Hi.Ovarian cancer, spread to bowel.Was considered for HIPEC but spread to small bowel means surgery not possible.Any alternatives to palliative chemo?

Here are my suggesti: Ovarian Cancer often involved multiple organs in the abdomen including the small bowel. In fact the bowel involvement is very common. Because of the above reasoning, surgery(often called Debulking surgery) is commonly done first treatment for optimum results. Chemotherapy is often done following surgery(with a few exceptions where Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (done first, before surgery) is preferred. ...Read more

Pancreatic cancer, ampullary tumor. Whipple procedure. Spread to liver, not respectable. Chemo for 6 months and continuing. Prognosis?

Pancreatic cancer, ampullary tumor. Whipple procedure.  Spread to liver, not respectable. Chemo for 6 months and continuing. Prognosis?

Poor: While Whipple is the best approach for a primary pancreatic or ampullary lesion, the recurrence rate at 1-2 yrs is 90%. Chemo either of the FOLFIERI or Genciabine /Abraxane combo have limited effects on liver mets which in pancreas are not considered amenable to resection. There is an FDA protocol using specific monoclonals targeting pancreas that might be available but only after chemo failure ...Read more

Can metastic liver tumors or cancer go untreated for 10yrs? Can anything mimick liver disease/cancer besides the gallbladder?

Can metastic liver tumors or cancer go untreated for 10yrs? Can anything mimick liver disease/cancer besides the gallbladder?

An odd: Question. Gall bladder, the organ, or symptoms from its disease, do not mimic liver cancer. A stone in the common bile duct could mimic biliary or pancreastic cancer (pain and jaundice), but none of this can last 10 years. Liver cysts can be their from birth. Mets to liver imply aggressive primary cancer; ergo 10 yr history highly unlikely. ...Read more
