Final Stage Of Liver Cancer And Kidney Failure
22 yo f in good health experiencing mild pains on right lower rib cage. Pain in right back when running. Kidney disease or liver cancer likely?
Q 4 Physiatry, Sport: A healthy runner would be unlikely to have a major illness. Hence if I saw someone in my college town practice who was 22, I would refer her to orthopedic surgery or sports medicine clinic for initial evaluation. I would not drop things there, however. I would communicate with all of the consultants, look at ehrs, speak with the patient about changes and continue to refer to specialists as needed.See 1 more doctor answer
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
My mother, 84 yrs. Has one kidney working 30%. She has congestive heart failure and inoperaple liver cancer. How long, in your opinion, will she live?
CHF & Cancer: Patients with congestive heart failure and an advanced liver cancer together are, on average, predicted to succumb to their diseases in 6-12 months or less. The more immediate problem of what sounds like impending kidney failure in your mother, unless she opts for dialysis, will probably supervene before the heart and cancer problems take their toll.

How to provide relief to 70 years old man in final stage of liver cancer? Pain is in control with pain killers but how to control fatigue and anxiety?
Palliative care: Patients with late stage cancer need palliative care (symptom relief). This can be provided by a palliative care specialist (if there is one available). Otherwise his oncologist can control his symptoms with proper medication. I think you have already told us that your father is on decadron which can cause hyperactivity/anxiety type reaction. This requires dose reduction by 50%. Ativan can relax hi
Not necessarily: Liver cancer is a pretty bad diagnosis, depends whether it is primary or metastatic. There is treatment though including transplant if you are young and in good shape, and there are many other novel treatments as well. You need close follow up with your doctors at this point and to evaluate all the options. Good luck!See 3 more doctor answers
Does ascites for advance liver cancer patient mean that it is the final stage? What is life expectancy for such a 70 yrs old patient?
I had bladder cancer and had removal of bladder and total hysterectomy. Now have Kidney disease. Had CT on my abdomen pelvis. Conclusion was parenchymal thinning w/persistent LV Ureterectasis. Thickening of the wall of the renal pelvis and proximal urete
Ask your urologist..: All what you experienced is expected in some patients and results from delayed, but expected in some, complications with scar formation leading to ureteral blockage & high pressure above it. Over time, renal pelvis becomes distended, renal tissue becomes thinning, the wall of renal pelvis & ureter becomes thicker. Oftentimes & to a degree, chronic recurrent UTI may play a role to such appearance.
I'm wondering how long does someone in the final stages of terminal primary liver cancer have left?
Difficult to: Predict. It is not feasible to provide an estimate of the time as tumors often behave in unexpected ways. Late stage primary liver cancer is general has a poor prognosis. See this site for more info. Http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000280.htm.
My mom had a positive ifob in october a month later she passed from final stages of liver cancer how is that possible all in 1 month?
It depends: Working in the dye industry/with napthylenes, Cyclophosphamide exposure is a clear risk factor for bladder cancer. If you are/were a smoker you have more risk of renal cancer, and working in the dye industry wouldn't help. Smoking increases risk for many cancers, including lung. It would be best to see your doctor, and let him know so he can tell you exactly what you are at risk for.See 1 more doctor answer

Cervical cancer: The description you gave describes at least stage iiib cervix cancer if your kidney was blocked at diagnosis.

Death: Hopefully, a dignified and graceful passing from this earth.
I have pain near on my hips and back of it is that possible I have cervical cancer or kidney failure?
Back pain: The only way to answer your question is to go to your doctor, describe in detail the pain you are having - what brings it on, what makes it better, exact location, does it start one place and go another, how much does it bother you, is it sharp/dull/throbbing. Ask to be thoroughly examined head to toe. Then, let your doctor decide what the problem might be and go from there.See 1 more doctor answer

My mother has lung cancer. We were told her kidneys are shrinking. Does this mean kidney failure?
I would guess...: ...that too, but "shrinking kidneys" is not a term I would use. Some physicians try hard to explain a situation in lay terms (and with the best of intentions) but I personally think we can help patients understand while still being accurate in our explanations. Don't walk away from a doctor's visit with questions. If u don't understand what he/she said, ask for clarification. Best to you both.See 1 more doctor answer
