Do Diffused Large B Cell Lymphoma Patients Show Symptoms Of Mental Abnormalities
Maybe: In general we don't think of diffuse large b cell lymphoma (dlbcl) effecting brain function. However, many patients tell us of symptoms of a "fog" like feeling either before treatment (disease-related?) or after ("chemobrain"). Reasons are likely multifactorial and can include stress, financial concerns, depression, and disease biology. This is being actively studied by a variety of groups. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
ATl & AST very high. Chronic Hepatitis of the liver, Grade 2. Mild focal fatty change is seen. Mild periportal inflammatory comprised primarily of lymphocytes. Reticulin & Trichrome stains show no increase in periportal fibrosis. Blood work normal.
Pillcam = many small + large bowel AVMs. Yet 2 colonoscopies earlier that year showed none. Could sudden lesions b related to mast cell disorder?
AVM's in colon: Intestinal arteriovenous malformations are possible to see with a camera, and may have been missed at colonoscopy, which looks mainly for masses not flat lesions such as AVM's. Such can appear quickly, but usually only secondary to bowel inflammatory episodes. It depends on whether you were symptomatic when you had either the camera or the colonoscopies ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does early stage small cell lung cancer cause muscle loss and malabsorption or are these later symptoms?
Lung cancer cachexia: Muscle wasting and weight loss ("cancer cachexia") are usually late stage occurrences; malabsorption is usually not the cause of these signs, but rather "hormones" released from the tumor cause a hyper metabolic state and also contribute to poor appetite. If you are already experiencing these problems, however, it is possible that the tumor - although localized (stage 1) is unusually active. ...Read more
Are there cancers that could cause mild liver enlargement (16.7) without focal lesions? Also mild elevated ALT. Or would cancer always show focal?
Hepatomegaly: Hepatomegaly, or enlarged liver, is not usually a sign of liver cancer. There are many other things that can cause a large liver and an increase in the ALT. It is important to find the reason for the symptoms, to treat it before it becomes worse. You should see a gastroenterologist if you have not already. Good luck. ...Read more
Could metabolic activty from early small cell lung cancer cause vitamin deficincies (B12,D, Zinc, follate)? &Would this earlry tumor show on CT?
No; but poor diet ca: Vitamin deficiencies (more than 1) like those of which you speak come from a poor diet that often includes alcohol or cigarettes. All of those can, in turn, cause small cell lung cancer but not necessarily. Cancer patients often eat poorly, but there are other reasons (liver disease, heart failure, kidney disease) which can do the same thing. Go to your doctor, get checked out. ...Read more

Cause of chronic elevated T cell counts with a monoclonal T cell beta gene rearrangement. Bouts of itching reddened skin. Some LGL's noted Normal CBC?
See dermatologist: How do you know the monoclonal T cell status? This suggests mycosis fungoides. I recommend that you see a dermatologist. ...Read more
What does it mean if flow cytometry results show: "Relative T-cell predominant lymphocytosis with no other diagnostic abnormalities detected." ?
Non diagnostic: For clonal proliferation, non-specific changes. Talk to your ordering physician about the plan of care. ...Read more

For patients with multiple large neuroendocrine liver metases with unknown primary and no treatment, what does it mean when the hepatic masses are starting to display necrosis (cystic changes)?
Can Splenic Marginal Zone Lymphoma ever present with recurrent, interrmitent splenomegaly, where spleen is large may times, and other times normal?
No.: The spleen doesn't fluctuate in size like that, but I have seen the skill of various physicians differ significantly, so that an hour after a colleague feels no splenomegaly, I feel significant splenomegaly. ...Read more
Sickled RBC's: The spleen not only helps in processing antigens to help wbc's fight infection, it also acts as a "stress test" for rbc's, weeding out the weaker and older ones for recycling. As rbc's "sickle", they cause clumps in the vessels, this is what causes the pain in the joints/chest and also what causes the spleen to swell. If happens in the coronary arteries, can weaken the heart and enlarge it. ...Read more

What would cd8+/cd57+ large granular lymphocytes found in peripheral blood flow cytometry mean with loss of cd7 ?
Want to read report: Hi. Usually the purpose of flow cytometry is to determine whether an elevated white cell population (e.g., lymphocytes) is monoclonal and thus indicative of leukemia. Flow cytometry uses specific antibodies against specific cell surface white cell proteins (CD's, or Classification Determinants) to assess for monoclonalitiy of cell populations. What is report conclusion? Good luck! ...Read more
B Symptoms: B symptoms are any combination of persistent fevers, drenching night sweats/chills, or significant weight loss. Not all lymphoma patients get them. Not even all stage IV lymphoma patients get them. Patients without b symptoms and stage IV disease are staged as having stage iva disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How common is a false negative ct when scanning for small cell lung cancer. Weight loss and fatigue present with some endocrine issues.
Very uncommon.: In some respects it depends on how the scan was performed, but, for example, with low dose screening chest CTs, reported sensitivities are generally well above 90%, and in some studies, approach 100% ...Read more
What specific blood work might show abnormalities that may indicate early signs of lymphoma leukemia cancer? Not for diagnosis but 4 early indications
Hematologic cancers: Leukemia and lymphoma are classified as hematologic malignancies. See this site for leukemia: http://labtestsonline.org/understanding/conditions/leukemia/start/3 and see this site for lymphoma: http://labtestsonline.org/understanding/conditions/lymphoma/start/4 That should give you some basics on the blood tests. If you're concerned, talk to your doctor about which tests might be appropriate. ...Read more
