Lung Limp Nose Cancer
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
Nasal cancers: Cancer survival varies by the specific type of cancer (for example squamous cell, adenocarcinoma, lymphoma, melanoma, etc.) the location of the tumor (sinus, nasal passages) and the stage (depth of invasion, presence of metastasis, etc.) Treatments today for nasal cancers include surgery plus often radiation and sometime chemotherapy. Long term survival is possible. ...Read more
Uncommon: There are two sites where malignancies can involve the nose. The more common is on the skin wherein one sees basal cell and squamous cancers.

I have nose cancer and have already done my radio n chemo treatments. Why do scans and test still show residues?
How cancer heals: All but the softest cancers produce tough fibrous tissue to support their cells. When radiation / chemo kill the malignant cells, the fibrous tissue stays behind but has no ability to hurt you unless some malignant cells can come back. This is a common source of misunderstanding, and I'm very glad you're doing well. ...Read more

Was diagnosed with NPC Stage 2 (nose cancer) in Jun. Completed radio + chemo in end Sep. Face is swollen after spicy food intake. How to reduce swell?
It will take longer: Some degree of swelling(lymphedema) is common after radiotherapy as it blocks the skin lymphatics. With longer follow up, over the next one or two years it will likely reduce and ultimately go away. Make adjustments in your food/spice as the mucosa becomes ultrasensitive /oversensitive after radiotherapy. You have to be patient and reduce the salt in your food, that too will help. ...Read more

Scared I've got lung cancer cough and cold for a while today coughed and there was a tiny speech of blood, after blew my nose and there was blood ther?
Inflammation in the airway (either upper or lower) may be associated with small amounts of bleeding. If your nose is bleeding this can appear in the post nasal drainage.
If you are a smoker in particular, I would suggest sputum cytologies.
During a viral illness, your asthma may worsen, requiring an adjustment of your medications.

My husband has stage3 nsc lung cancer and recently started having nose bleeds. What could be the cause?
I'm loosing weight, finding dried up blood in my nose, and I have a cough, which is getting better. I don't smoke, so it can't be lung cancer, can it?
From the information you provided the risk of lung cancer is minimal. You may try applying a small amount of an emollient in the nares. Do apply only small amount as you do not want the emollient to be inhaled.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
I am having upper back pain that comes and go, and blood when I blow my nose. I do not have a cough. I am 25 and I don't smokecould I have lung cancer?
Almost certainly not: I don't think you have lung cancer at all. Back pain can be due to many things (including posture, very large breasts, etc) and blood when you blow your nose is probably due to a polyp. Obviously you should have it checked out if it's a lot. But at your age and with no smoking history, lung cancer would be very low on my list. As for bruising and weakness, you should probably have a blood test. ...Read more

Confused by previous answers-sprayed tanned years w/no protection. Read DHA breathed thru nose/month during spray causes lung cancer. What are real risks 2 me; are there actual cases in medical journals? Please help me understand real risk-concerned
Inhaled over a period is safe! Unfortunately the DHA issue is still not clarified! DHA can cause GENETIC abnormalities in mice ...but HUMANS are NOT Mice.
I tell my patients NOT to spend valuable time worrying about possible early exposure to chemicals with adverse effects...suffices to say that timely medical examinations would be my best advice!
Hope this is helpful

Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
