On avastin (bevacizumab) for ov cancer. Could there be a spike in ca125 because tumors are shrinking/dying and spilling their content into blood stream?

On avastin (bevacizumab) for ov cancer. Could there be a spike in ca125 because tumors are shrinking/dying and spilling their content into blood stream?

Yes, it is possible: Ca 125 is a tumor marker which helps to make decisions about response or lack of it. But it takes 2-3 serial values to decide if the tumor is getting better or worse; one reading does not help as it can be rising both from tumor getting worse or getting smaller and releasing tumor chemicals, which is what ca 125 is. It takes 2-3 mos to be able to get a clear picture. Also watch other tumor aspects. ...Read more

Could prostate cancer appear in your bloodworm? does having a swollen or enlarged prostate automatically indicate cancer?

Could prostate cancer appear in your bloodworm? does having a swollen or enlarged prostate automatically indicate cancer?

NO: Elevation of screening prostate specific antigen (psa) is likely the first finding that leads to the eventual diagnosis of prostate cancer. However, an elevated psa is nonspecific and can occur with benign prostatic hypertrophy or prostatitis. An enlarged prostate is most likely a benign condition and unrelated to prostate cancer. The diagnosis of prostate cancer can only be made through a biopsy. ...Read more

Urine tested positive for blood said its normal for patients that had radiation therapy for prostate cancer also are ther any cancer cells in urine bl?

Possibly: Radiation therapy can cause inflammatory changes in the bladder which can result in microscopic blood in the urine. However a urine cytology should be performed to rule out possibly bladder abnormalities. Additionally, if the history of radiation therapy is in the past, then a cystoscopy (camera to look in your urethra and bladder) may be warranted. Please discuss further with your doctors. ...Read more

Father has prostate cancer.  Spreded on outer prostate.did test to see if in bladder and it wasn't. Bone scan next if not found in bladder can it ther?

Here are some ...: How to treat prostate cancer is advised and decided on the basis of multiple factors - age, pace of PSA rising, tissue Gleason score, general health, concomitant illnesses, metastatic workup, etc. But in reality, the decision is still based on INDIRECT evidence to define if cancer is still clinically localized or spread..

I am 26. I was passing blood after the urine. Doctor tasted my blood sample and found psa level 3.75.Is it the symptom of prosate cancer.?

I am 26. I was passing blood after the urine. Doctor tasted my blood sample and found psa level 3.75.Is it the symptom of prosate cancer.?

No, PSA is < 4 is OK: At your age, this is most likely from some mechanical trauma in your urinary system, like a stone, or possibly infection. As you get older, you might have to think of renal cancer, and you might get other tests for this, but as far as your prostate goes, you seem to have no problem. If you had a rectal exam, and it was negative, with psa < 4 ng/ml, just follow up in a year, if not, get it now. ...Read more

Can a blood test find liver cancer? My mom gets regular liver function tests. I think because of cirrhosis, or maybe another liver problem. I’m afraid the disease will cause cancer. Will cancer show up on the blood tests?

Sometimes: The diagnosis of cancer is made generally initially by various kinds of imaging tests - ultrasound, radionuclide liver scans and ct or mri, usually in patients where there is already suspicion. There is a test, called AFP (alpha fetoprotein) which is sometimes followed in patients with cirrhosis to try to detect cancer early; however, other conditions also cause it to go up. The best test=biopsy. ...Read more
