Blood pressure/cance

Blood_pressure
No one knows what causes most types of cancer. There are certain kinds of cancer the cause thereof has been found such as cervical cancer where human papilloma virus plays the vital role. The cause of low blood pressure is not known either. A mix of hormonal and vascular factors along with the genetic make up of the person plays the crucial role.

Help please! Could cancer cause low blood pressure?

Not directly

Cancer
Low BP can occur in cancer due to dehydration or severe infections and some chemotherapy agents. It can also occur if there has been significant weight loss. But isolated low blood pressure in someone who is otherwise healthy is unlikely to be due to cancer.

like most of medicine we try to find the cause of the problem so we can target the therapy . treating the underlying cause is the most effective therapy instead of just treating the symptoms. a full work up needs to be done with possible tests including and echo and tilt table test.

A fit body has relaxed arteries resulting in lower, yet normal, blood pressure readings. Pregnancy may bring the blood pressure down another few points due to the presence of the placenta and the effects of progesterone in your vasculature.
