Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
What can a high ALT reading of 135 mean in a person with metastic colon cancer who is on oxyplatin chemo ?
ALT reading -50
ALP reading -140
Is this suggestive of liver failing
Metastic colon cancer ?
Liver function: The enzymes (ALP & ALT) are indicative of only mild liver dysfunction. The rising bili suggests that some degree of bile obstruction may be occurring. This could be due to the mechanical obstruction of small ducts by metastatic disease. But the liver has a large degree of reserve capacity, so full liver failure is unlikely to be final cause of death even with very bulky mets. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My advise is when you see an oncologist, make sure to point out this information. Even though you are node negative, the oncologist may be more willing to recommend chemotherapy to be safer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: There were concerns decades ago about Clofibrate but they came to nothing. I searched the nih database for the past 20 years and found nothing, and it makes no sense biologically. If it did, the research piranhas would have grabbed it up -- it's all about trying to discover and prove something. The fibrates have saved many, many lives and i would not be concerned. ...Read more
It is a good thing: It's good that the risk to develop colon, stomach or other type of cancer in our 20's , in general , is not high. Unless if you have a strong family history of colon ca such as in familial adenomatous polyposis or stomach cancer, then the risk would be much higher. That is because when we are younger, the gene repair mechanism is still functioning well and exposure to carcinogenic is still limited. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Final few yards of your intestine, between the terminal ileum (small bowell) and rectum. It squeezes water and solidifies waste to stool. It is subject to outpouching (divertics) polyps, and these can become cancers. The cells are abnormal, invade into the muscle and travel ...Read more
