Can aleve (naproxen) pm cause diffuse large b-cell lymphoma?

Can aleve (naproxen) pm cause diffuse large b-cell lymphoma?

No: We can only guess what causes diffuse large b-cell lymphoma, but we know there are at least 3 genetic subtypes. See: http://www.bloodjournal.org/content/105/5/1851 This implies gene mutations are very important in this disease, as in most (if not all) blood borne malignancies.

Is there proof that Aleve (naproxen) or other naisd's can cause liver damage?

Is there proof that Aleve (naproxen) or other naisd's can cause liver damage?

Possible: As you imply, there is controversy over how serious the role of nsaisd and liver damage really is. The best reference I have seen is world j gastroenterol 2010 december 7; 16(45) 5651-5661. While there is some risk with all nsaids, discontinuation usually reverses problem. The presence of jaundice is a serious risk factor for liver failure. Sulindac and nimesulide have both been linked hi risk. ...Read more

All of them. ...Read more
