If I threw up straight blood last night from purging what are the signs I need to go to the ER if it's already the next day? Is treatment needed still

Maybe: Repeated or violent retching can cause a tear in the lining of the stomach which can cause bleeding. If you feel lightheaded or dizzy standing it's a sign of low blood pressure from blood loss.

As a general rule people who vomit up blood should go to the ER to check vital signs. And to be checked to be sure no continued bleeding is occurring.

My 87 year old aunt has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She's had it for over a year. However, she doesn't want treatment, are there home remedies for this?

Not really: I would not recommend home therapies. A lot depends on her health. If the tumor is advanced, surgery may be needed to prevent chest involvement or skin ulceration. If the tumor is small and not aggressive it may be possible that an agent like tamoxifen (estrogen receptor blocker) may give some local control without surgery. Consultation with a compassionate breast cancer specialist is in order. ...Read more
