Eating Late Cancer
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

30mins after eating my gut sounds noisy.Suffering from fatigue&weight loss.Colonoscopy clear, worried about smallcell lung cancer secrting hormones?
Unlikey: Small cell lung cancer is not subtle. This would be way down on my list of possibilities, along with other paraneoplastic GI syndromes. With fatigue, weight loss, and a rumbling gut, I'd check you for malabsorption / maldigestion, gluten enteropathy, maybe Whipple's, Crohn's, giardiasis, pancreatic insufficiency from tumor / adult onset cystic fibrosis, a few others. ...Read more

Not really: Growing up in the western world is associated in with an increased risk of colon cancer. Stomach cancer is less common and is seen more frequently in asia and 3rd world countries, perhaps due to h.Pylori and genetics. Though associations with diet have been suggested, there is no direct evidence that you can affect your colon cancer risk by modifying your diet. A vegetarian diet may help. ...Read more

I am assuming: the question is whether the cancer had caused, or indirectly affected the viability of, the embryo/fetus. I do not think any Doctor or scientist can tell you for sure. There is a direct correlation between cancer and blood clotting ability, i.e. cancer increases the risk that venous blood clots will occur. And there is also a direct correlation between increased clotting and miscarriages. ...Read more

Symptoms vary: Late stage cancer is associated with many different symptoms depending on nature of tumor and site of metastasis. Tumors like lung, breast Ca and prostate frequently spread to bone and pain from expanding periosteum must be brought under control. Eventually all cases of metastatic tumor fail due to malignant stem cells. Goal is to control tumor for survival time and symptoms. ...Read more

Body temperature normally fluctuates during the day. 1 degree above and 1 degree below 98.6 degrees F is within normal limits.

I've had untreated cancer for 2 years. Now I regret not getting treatment. Is it too late to start?
I'm 34 and 4 years ago i had all the tests for ovarian cancer it was negative. I now have all the symptoms, could i be in the late stages of it now?
You can not be so su: If you have symptoms, then an examination by your doctor is the first step. Only if he/she suspect something on an examination will they order imaging studies with an ultrasonogram or ct scans which can easily show the status of your ovaries. I would not get so anxious right away when your previous testing has been unremarkable. It may simply be fear/ worry of the unknown. Your doctor can help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi I just did a tatto and he went on a beauty spot that was still big I forgot to say to not go but too late is it that dangerous can I have cancer ?
Tattoo OK: Tattoos do not increase risk of melanoma, to my knowledge. But depending on the type of "beauty spot", you should observe it for changes in color, the way if feels, etc. To be really safe, you might get it checked by a deramtologist. Many birthmarks are ok, but some are not - the derms are great at sorting this out. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is there any type of blood tests that can be given to detect if someone has some form of cancer growing in their bodies & cure it before its to late?
No: There are a couple of phony labs that offer this, one pair of well-intentioned people who offer a test that i would urge you not to rely on, and there is no substitute for a proper history and physical exam for cost-effective cancer screening. I'm more impressed with breast self-exam and colonoscopy as life-savers than anything else; tumor markers aren't realistic screens. ...Read more
Unlikely: Very unlikelyGet a more detailed answer ›
Stage 4?: If by late you mean stage 4 (metastatic), the answer is: possible but unlikely. If the number of metastases is limited and the patient is in good shape, he/she could be treated aggressively with surgery and chemo (maybe even radiotherapy) and some of those, God willing, can be cured. I have seen a few of such patients and I'm sure my colleagues here have too. Best wishes. ...Read more
