Variety: A variety of cancers can be detected by blood tests. In many cases, the blood test alone is not enough information to confirm the diagnoss; scans or biopsies may be necessary. These are the types of cancer where blood tests are helpful: liver, neuroendocrine, thyroid, colorectal, pancreatic, gastric, and ovarian to name a few. ...Read more
Unclear Q, but...: Whole blood donation is every 56 days. A pheresis machine can collect 2 units of red blood cells at one time, returning other components--this can be done every 112 days (2x as long as single). Other pheresis donations can be for plasma or platelets, and they have much shorter interval periods (may be 3-7 days). Talk to the Red Cross for more information. ...Read more
Glycoproteins!: Wikipedia actually has a pretty good article on this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ABO_blood_group_system A, B, AB, and O cells all begin the same, with the production of a molecule on the RBC (red blood cell) surface called H antigen. The genes coding for A or B blood group (or AB, if you have one of each) are actually just chemical modifications of this common H antigen. Pretty cool! ...Read more
Most are due to muta: Mutations are common in all cancers. In Leukemia the very first mutation(Single mutation, causing cancer was discovered in Chronic Myelocytic Leukemia(CML). In most other Leukemias, there are multiple mutations present once we have learned how to search for them by Genomic profiling. ...Read more
1 or 2: A person has her own blood type (that's #1) that she is born with. She may also have a second blood type from a transfusion (that's #2), but that second type is only temporary. In theory, if she has transfusions from more than one donor, she could temporarily have more than 2 blood types (especially if talking about "minor" blood type differences). ...Read more
Wide range: Zero to "very high" (eg 100's of thousands). Leukemia undergoing treatment may result in a zero white blood cell (WBC) count. Some leukemias may have relatively normal total WBC but abnormal cells (blasts) in the differential. Other leukemias can develop very high WBC counts. So, a wide range is possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Organelles in nerves: Great wikipedia question.Get a more detailed answer ›
Are there a large number of cholesterol molecules in the plasma membrane of a single human red blood cell or merely a few?
Large number: Cholesterol molecules are found in every cell of the body, and are especially abundant in cell plasma membranes. The plasma membrane is a continuous double-layer of phospholipids, interwoven with cholesterol molecules and proteins. So, cholesterol molecules are found in great numbers in the plasma membranes of red blood cells. ...Read more

Hypertrophic N then: Chronic hypertension often cause hypertrophy (thickening of heartwalls) and thus stiffness, and eventually become ischemic (not enough blood) and can dilate (enlarge) etc... Too thick/stiff =can't fill well; ischemic=chest pain/heart attack; dilated/weakened=congestive heartfailure. It is a complicated process which can be mitgated by treating high blood pressure. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Is there a difference in the symptoms of neuropathy caused by a tumor & other neuropathy (not caused by tumors)? How do the symptoms in each differ?
Not really...: Neuropathy is damage to a nerve with the effects usually felt at the point of damage downstream from the damaged area of the nerve. As the nerve does not necessarily differentiate what the damage is from, one from compression of a tumor may feel similar to one from a bulging a disc. However, every patient is different and every situation involving tumors and nerve damage will be different. ...Read more
