Is Tricalcium Phosphate A Cancer Causing Agent
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
I have lung nodules 6 years ago that were cal cialcified now I have more what would cause more and could it be cancer. I was in vietnam and have many problems from angent orange?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a rectal resection due to cancer. I have just done a new bloods and my phosphate came back really low (0.74 and WBC was 3. Should i be worried?
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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
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
