Lung nodules: The old calcified lung nodules do not concern me. However the new lung nodules are more concerning. Things like infection, rheumatological problems, cancer ( either lung cancer or other type of cancer that spreads to lung) can cause lung nodules. Discuss further with your md . You need further evaluation and biopsy of the lung nodule is likely required ( if possible to be done)-to find what it is. ...Read more

Just f/u with MD: Follow up with your gp and have your md repeated the labs again. If something is significant- your md can do some w/u to find why and to treat accordingly. Those likely unrelated to the cancer- unless you are telling me that you receive chemotherapy now- then the chemo is likely the reason why your WBC is low. If not, just continue to f/u with your md and discuss further. ...Read more

What could be the result of an alkaline phosphate of 149...History of kidney cancer in past, had surgery to remove it.

Nonspecific: Alkaline phosphatase is a blood test that can be elevated in both diseases of the liver or the bone. Conceivably if kidney cancer spreads to either the liver or bone, the alp may become elevated especially if the spread is quite extensive. However, other benign conditions can lead to alp elevations such as infection, paget's disease of the bone, hepatitis, inflammation. Get a thorough check up. ...Read more

Why are the charbroiled meat and cigarette smoke cancer causing agents?

Why are the charbroiled meat and cigarette smoke cancer causing agents?

Organic chemicals: Polycyclic hydrocarbons of various sorts. No reasonable person questions that these do grave harm when they are in tobacco smoke. I've reviewed the supposed dangers of charbroiled meat from time to time and the numbers are much softer, the danger if real at all is much less, and recall bias is likely, so that reasonable people can disagree. ...Read more

Can you tell me how cancer causing agents usually lead to cancer?

Mutate genes: A few of them caused greatly increased cell turnover instead which is the fertile soil in which mutations caused by other agents can be expressed. Remembering that all true cancers are mutagens is a good way to tell which "things that cause cancer" in media / pop reports are probably true (radiation, smoking, mutagenic chemicals) and which ones are bogus / statistical flukes / scare talk. ...Read more
