If this stomach tumor is completely removed and RT and chemo given there is a slight possibility of cure. ...Read more
What is liver metasis stage 4? Is it cancer? Considering the person diagnosed to also have tumor in the pancreas
Depends.: All cancers are considered serious. However, the stage of the cancer is very important in determining the treatment and prognosis of a cancer. The more disease there is (the higher the stage) the more serious the cancer is and the more the need for aggressive therapy. In prostate cancer the grade of the disease (gleason score) also plays a role as it helps define the aggressiveness of the disease. ...Read more
Several possiblities: Ranging from benign, to a lesion that needs monitoring (repeat imaging in 3 to 6 months), to lesions that need biopsy for diagnosis and treatment. Okay to discuss with the doc who obtained the imaging. Many liver lesions are picked up "incidentally" when imaging is obtained for other reasons. However, even if you are without symptoms, okay to ask your doc. ...Read more

Hemangioma appeared on L5 thenanother on l1, int the past yr. Also schmorls nodes. History o cancer. Now have swelling behind both clavicals w severe headaches. Any ideas?
Sounds worrisome: The "swelling behind both clavicles" sounds worrisome as it could be enlarged lymph nodes (especially with a history of cancer). "severe headaches" always need evaluation until they are diagnosed and treated. Schmorl's nodes usually cause no symptoms, but they reflect that wear and tear of the spine has occurred over time. A primary care doctor and oncologist can evaluate to see what's going on. ...Read more

Atypical hemangioma on spine MRI. Why spine MRI can't determine cancer? Full-body scan recommended but how about whole-body MRI to avoid radiation?
Not performed.: Contrary to what you might have been told, a "whole body MRI" is almost NEVER performed - it's too expensive, & the technology doesn't work to make it easier. A PET or PET/CT scan is a better test for detecting cancer, but unless you have SYMPTOMS indicating cancer, the chance of picking something up is remote. It wastes your time, worry, & money. Hemangiomas are common. TTYD or use HealthTap Prim ...Read more

Yes: An MRI with IV contrast is very useful in diagnosing liver hemangiomas. They have a very characteristic pattern of how they take up and release the IV contrast in comparison to other liver lesions. The best MRI would be a "hemangioma protocol" where they take a few extra pictures later than would be typically done for a liver mri. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
