Cancer (Definition)

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

My 4 year-old-son has high IgE levels in blood. Could the body be reacting to cancer?

My 4 year-old-son has high IgE levels in blood. Could the body be reacting to cancer?

Consider allergy: There are five types of antibodies in the blood. The other word for antibody is immunoglobulin, or ig. The five types of antibody are g (keeps you immune), a (protects your surfaces such as nose and gut from infection), m (kills currently active infections), d (unknown function), and e (worm infections and allergies. So the e type is ige and when it is up think of allergies or worms. ...Read more

Eos in the 2300-3500 range for at least 6 months + most recent blood smear shows "few smudge cells". Have ruled out parasites. IgE normal. Cancer?

Eos in the 2300-3500 range for at least 6 months + most recent blood smear shows "few smudge cells".  Have ruled out parasites.  IgE normal.  Cancer?

Follow closely: Be aware of Churg-Strauss, especially if you have developed adult asthma. Consider testing for anti neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies. Read up also on Loeffler's and the various eosinophilic leukemias. Genetic studies might be appropriate. A few smudges mean nothing -- just pushing the smear roughly can create them. Often folks like you just get followed and never get sick. ...Read more

I have elevated blood proteins & IgE (130 of 0-87); arm/leg weakness; excessive thirst; back/rib pain; nausea/vomiting; bacterial infections. Cancer?

Hope not!: Your findings are very non-specific so I cannot say you do or don't have cancer. Please talk to your doc about the meaning of all of this and see what else needs to be done. Hope it's nothing serious and wish you a quick recovery. ...Read more

My MCH blood test always comes back slightly high is that enough of an indicator along with thickening of the cecum to suspect cancer?

My MCH blood test always comes back slightly high is that enough of an indicator along with thickening of the cecum to suspect cancer?

Mean : Corpuscular hemoglobin associates with large cells, and b-12 or folate (folic acid) deficinency. Low MCV (mean corpuscular volume) or microcytosis is associated with iron deficiency, like from blood loss into the cecum. Heavy menses, lack of red meat in diet without supplemental iron.. Sounds like you had a ct too. ...Read more

Is blood in poo symptom/indicator always there? Or some dont get it?

Routine followup: Surveillance interval colonoscopy for screening depends upon your personal history of polyps or symptoms, or family history of colon cancer or polyps. Most persons with polyps do not have rectal bleeding, and thus the need for colon screening at age 50 for everyone. In this case, interval colonoscopy would be recommmended based on type of polyp, family history, or new bleeding. ...Read more

My IgE levek is 159 kunits/l . Is this normal ? I have just had rectal carcinoid removed do I still have cancer in my body ?

My IgE levek is 159 kunits/l . Is this normal ? I have just had rectal carcinoid removed do I still have cancer in my body ?

probably not: For a detailed answer would need more detail about your rectal carcinoid: how big, microscopic appearance, etc. In general rectal carcinoids rarely spread to other areas of the body so if the margins around the carcinoid were clear then it is probably completely gone. To be safe repeat rectal examination and lab checks should be done to monitor possible recurrence. ...Read more
