How Bad Is Stage 2 Edenocarcinoma Cancer
It is curable.: All breast cancer is bad, but the prognosis changes with stages. So the lowest stage has the best prognosis and the highest stage, stage 4, has the worst prognosis. Technically there is a stage 0 which is something called dcis, which hasn't invaded out of the ducts. Stage 1 is better than stage 2 but stage 2 is definitely curable. You can never know you are cured for sure so follow up is necessary. ...Read more
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

Cancer specialist: Can a person with stage 2 or 3 cancer ever become cancer free? If yes, does it depend upon the type of cancer?
Yes, many do!: The modern treatments can cure more than half of stage 2 pateints and some of the stage 3 pateints also. But it is dependent on the type of Cancer. For example breast Cancer and melanoma have high cure rates after surgery has removed such tumors. Lung Cancers have lower cure rate. I hope this answers your question. Let us know if more info is needed. ...Read more
It is possible: Hi. How are you? So the biopsy came back positive? I'm sorry. You know the statistics. Cure IS possible. What you need is a very experienced medical center with a very experienced team in treating pancreatic adenocarcinoma, a healthy coping mechanism, support of friends & loved ones (including pets), and some plain ol' good luck. Is a Whipple planned? We'll be thinking of you. Keep us posted. T ...Read more
Surgery...: If prevention and early detection efforts have failed, and colon cancer results, then surgical removal of the cancer is the primary treatment step. Assuming the tumor has not invaded through the GI tract, then surgery may be considered curative. Adjuvant treatments can be offered appropriate to pre- and post-operative assessments. ...Read more
I have stage 2 low grade 1 ovarian cancer after op no macroscopic disease. Onc insist no chemo needed. Is there evidence that it makes a differenc?
Vascular involvement: The distinction between stage ii and iii hinges on the involvement of the arteries known as the celiac axis and the superior mesenteric artery. Specialist centers will treat a questionable stage iii as borderline resectable using chemo and radiation in an effort to get to resection. Seek help in a major center; this is an area where missteps occur. ...Read more
Few: Stage 2 lung cancer is still early stage. Most early stage lung cancers are found by accident, looking for something else. Most late stage lung cancers are found due to symptoms, like chest pain, coughing up blood, weight loss, etc. One of the earliest signs would be cough, due to airway irritation. ...Read more
Depends.: Lung cancer typically has no obvious symptoms. That's why so difficult to diagnose early. If already diagnosed then some symptoms depending on location and size may be cough/shortness of breath/weight loss/blood clot/abnormal chest xray. Rarelly coughing blood up. Stage 2 now has a much better prognosis. ...Read more
Early stage 95%: With early detection of uterine cancer, with radical surgery, advanced current chemoradiation the cure will be will be 95% for 5 year survival. Stage ii of uterine cancer is confined to uterus with cervix involvement but no spread to lymph nodes. For stage ii it will be 70%. ...Read more
Progression: Sounds like you are using the TNM classification for liver cancer staging. The risk is progression, worsening liver failure and death. Liver transplant is the only way to survive. Prognosis & survival can be prolonged by minimally invasive interventional radiology procedures - chemo-embolization, radio-embolization, & thermal-ablation. These can also be done as a bridge to liver transplantation! ...Read more
Nasopharynx cancer (npc)! My father has npc second stage. Is there a cure? What are his odds of survival?
Good: Nasopharynx cancer is easily treated. In second stage therei are cervical lymph nodes but when high in neck it is easy to encompass a field where the pharyngeal lesion is hit by cross RT beams and the neck also treated with RT. Chemo is then given which in most instances is successful. Surgery most of the time is not indicated. ...Read more
Yes, major differenc: Stage 2 ovarian cancer (spread limited to pelvic area only has a much better cure rate (>50%) than with stage-3 Ovarian cancer which means it has spread into the belly). Stage 3 is the most common stage of presentation; this means high mortality rate, yet 25% to 30% of such women can expect to be cured with the proper use of modern chemotherapy combined with debulking surgery. ...Read more
Melanoma surgery: If you have melanoma on the skin the only good treatment is complete surgical removal. If you have melanoma that is spread in the body then you need chemotherapy. Stage 2 would require complete surgical removal and then some testing to make sure there is no spread in to the glands or the other body parts. No oral medication will fix melanoma. ...Read more
Did sarcoidosis appear in stages? Like cancer have stage 1, stage 2, stage 3, stage 4. And if do what appear in stage 1?
Is being diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and being a diagnosed with stage 2 but having a recurrence later the same in terms if prognosis?
Prognosis is stage: It is stage-dependent. Once the Cancer has relapsed the prognosis is bad as the disease is typically fatal. As long as it remains stage-2, there is hope for a better prognosis as long as the disease is not visibly present. In one individual the prognosis and outcome is ultimately same although numerically speaking survival is longer as long as the Cancer has not shown up in the tests. ...Read more
I had a tt in dec '11 since I had stage 2 thyroid cancer. Since then I have not been the same. Meds have been changed several times what can I do?
Can be difficult: While many patients feel fine on thyroid hormone pills after thyroid surgery, others have more trouble feeling "just right". One reason for this might be that for thyroid cancer patients, docs aim for thyroid levels just a little higher than people are used to. That has to be balanced against risk of recurrence. Some people feel better with a little T3 (liothyronine) and a lower dose of t4. Ask your doctor! ...Read more
Stage II mostly: Involves hilar nodes, and a lesion 2 cm or less. If that fits, you've llikely had surgery. Lung cancer kills by local recurrence but more distant metastases: brain, liver, bones. These do not all happen at once. Fewer than 50% survive 5 years with treatment, and as symptoms develop, you may change your mind. ...Read more
Dad had colon cancer stage 2 at 63. I'm 44. Just took pinnacle biolab 2nd gen fit test with negative result. Need colonoscopy?
See answer: Most recommendations suggest screening starting age 50. 75% of colon cancers are not familial or hereditary. Having a father with colon cancer increases your risk by at least 20%. HOWEVER YOUR ABSOLUTE RISK IS STILL LOW. You cannot be faulted for wanting a colonoscopy before age 50 but it's not absolutely necessary. *Focus should be on PREVENTION, not detection: **see comments below for specifics. ...Read more
Colon cancer stage 2, pt 65y/o. Had 1 + mass, multiple benign polops. All of the colon was removed. Is chemo recommended? No matastatas noted.
Adjuvant Chemo: Stage ii is mostly n-1 +, but now includes t-size > 5cm. The facts are more for n-1+. 12 weeks (4 cycles). The supporting trials and chemotherapy are all canadian or european. A recent european trial used the chemotherapy before. I would not advise this without a long discussion with your oncologist about benefit/risk. ...Read more
