NG tube or surgery: If intestinal obstruction is due to adhesions post surgery, an attempt to reverse the partial twist using a nasogastric tube is a first attempt to be used. If the amount of ng drainage increases and gas does not pass per rectum, surgery is needed. Here, removal of adhesion and untwisting of bowel can help. Occassionally a side to side bypass has to be used. ...Read more

Best is colonoscopy as you can both look and do. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

More data needed.: One needs to know more. If resectable, then a resection and such could fix this issue. If it cannot be removed for some reason, then it varies on the ability to give nutrition. In most cases, if unresectable and this question is being asked about a loved one with advanced disease, it is best to fine a palliative care specialist who can address the problem. ...Read more
Gastritis: Gastritis is a temporary state, and means inflammation of the stomach lining. Start with focusing on your diet, eliminate any foods that cause your stomach to hurt.

Surgery or Radiation: The 2 mainstay forms of muscle invasive bladder cancer treatment includes radical surgery or radiation with chemotherapy. If there is no muscle invasion, one can be treated with a bladder medicine called bcg. The actual treatment depends on multiple factors including the pathology report, type of cancer, the size of the lesion, number of lesions present, and spread of disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: The standard of care for bladder tumors is removal of all abnormal tissue, using a scope via the urethra. A chemo agent is then placed in the bladder to reduce recurrences. If pathology shows cancer invasive into deep layers of the bladder, then major surgery may be needed. The most common reason not to have bladder cancer surgery is if a patient is too high risk for anesthesia complications. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Doesnt exist: After failing chemo which all pancreatic malignancies do, a newer approach is using monoclonal antibodies targeting an immunogenic protein, a post translational modification of MUC5ac, to bring the tumor under control. With the proper dosage, added chemo and later the radiolabelled Alpha emitter given sequentially, better results are anticipated. ...Read more
Years....we think.: Every individual tumor is different. The "teaching" is it takes 5 years for a polyp to undergo malignant change (turn into cancer) from there, it depends on location, age and many other factors we don't yet understand. Colon cancer can be indolent (slow growing) or aggressive. It depends on the individual cancer, and everyone is different. ...Read more

Not much as of yet: Removal and containment of prostate cancer within the prostate is primary goal of treatment. If psa levels persist as elevated after definitive treatment then hormonal blockade to decrease the ability of testosterone to "feed" microscopic cells is next most effective treatment. Once hormonal suppression stops being effective chemotherapy has modest effects. Immune therapy is an option then also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: It is impossible to say that one type of cancer is the "easiest" to cure. It is true that almost all thyroid cancers confined to the neck are cured with surgery possibly followed by radioactive iodine. In young people, many thyroid cancers that have metastasized to other parts of the body can also be cured. Unfortunately, there are some types like anaplastic that are almost never cured. ...Read more

I work really hard to stay in shape and eat right. Now I have a diagnosis of ileal cancer. What else can I do so that it doesn't affect my overall health?
Remove the cancer: It is an unusual diagnosis, but if you have cancer in the intestine it needs to be surgically removed. Depending on the type, other treatment such as chemotherapy or immunetherapy might be required. Continuing to stay healthy by working out and eating well will help you recover, but they will not substitute for actual removal of the cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Small bowel cancer: The ileum is what we call the second half of the small bowel- cancer here is rare and unfortunately aggressive.

Best treated at a cancer center with accreditation by the american college of surgery and/ or the national cancer institute. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It didn't happen: Please forgive me. I've been examining claims like these for decades and they are never true. Either the person never had cancer (often it's just a "lump in the throat" from being sad), or they were cured by conventional means but wanted to believe in magic, or the person is dead and this is a fantasy or a cynical hoax. Or the person making the claim doesn't exist. I'm sorry. ...Read more
Yes: An early basal cell carcinoma can be excised with the expectation of cure. I'm personally familiar with hundreds of different types of cancer and the books describe thousands more. Hodgkin's -- once uniformly fatal -- is now cured in the vast majority of cases. There are aggressive sarcomas that have never been cured. ...Read more
I'm just wondering, if you had your last shot at doing something to cure cancer in you, what would you try?
Issue is:would I try: If a disease is advancing despite all standard therapy, two important decisons & choices need to me made: 1)am i still going towards "cure" (however we wish to define that) or for "palliation" (to improve quality of remaining life, and perhaps extending life span a bit) 2) relative potential benefits vs. Harms. Each instance & each person is unique-so maybe nothing, maybe something experimental. ...Read more
No: Hiv infection increases the risk of several cancers like kaposi sarcoma, cervical cancer, and certain kinds of lymphoma. In fact, some of these cancers define the diagnosis of aids vs. "just" an HIV infection. Hiv is much more treatable than when it was discovered but no reason to be careless. Don't do drugs and avoid funky sex. Best to you and happy holidays. ...Read more
Yes, if early enuf: Like other cancers, rectal cancer has better prognosis (outlook) if diagnosed and treated at an earlier, rather than later stage. Very early cancers can be cured with burning the tissue. More advanced will likely need radiation/chemo/surgery in varying combinations and timing. Can be cured, but unfortunately, not always. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
