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 the consultants, look at ehrs, speak with the patient about changes and continue to refer to specialists as needed. ...Read more

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.

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 ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

My mother has lung cancer. We were told her kidneys are shrinking. Does this mean kidney failure?
I would guess...: 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. ...Read more

Is kidney failure linked to bone marrow cancer and if treated is kidney process reversible. Biopsy report says 17 glo. Nonglobally sclerotic 4 ischemic?
It varies: Most cases of kidney failure caused by one of the blood cancers are reversible if detected early and treated promptly.

Let's reframe the ?: The issue isn't the amount of bilirubin causing problems with the liver. The liver is likely infiltrated with tumor mets and therefore is not able to process bilirubin. The elevated bilirubin can have multiple causes but is a symptom of the liver failure rather than the cause. It can also be a symptom of obstruction of the biliary system in the liver by tumor or simply inactivity (cholestasis). ...Read more

Don't give up, man!!: The questions I hear you asking is, "can i perhaps survive this after all?" you're read, correctly, that when liver failure becomes so severe that it causes the lungs or kidneys to fail, recovery is unlikely. If you are writing this from your home, and fairly comfortable, your kidneys have not failed. A sober, compliant diabetic's liver can heal and work well for him for decades. Be strong, man. ...Read more
