Could you tell me what is the life expectancy for a 66 year old male just diagnosed will cancer in bowel, lungs and brain?

Unknown: No one can tell you dates, only percent survival. So lower with large tumor burden. So if tumor spread to lung brain etc this is stage 4. Also depends on how functional one is. I would talk to the oncologist about palliative and hospice care otion if no one has before. Ask questions to the doctor and write them down so you will not forget. ...Read more

Cold Sores: Canker sores - or "cold sores"- are caused by latent viruses that activate under periods of sess, infection, or for unknown reasons. There a over-the-counter treatments at purport to help (see, e.g., http://dentistry.About. Com/od/basicdentalcare/f/cankertreatment. Htm).

I have a small lump under my right armpit. Its been there for 2 months. It was painful initially, but not anymore. I am a 24 year old male. Cancer?

Not likely: Infection or inflammation of anytime can produce a painful lump. This seems to be the case with your lump under the arm. The fact it is now painless indicates that acute problem has settled down. But watch its size...Which should get smaller and not be increasing at all. If it is increasing in size, then you need to see a doctor for further examination to find out its nature. Cancer is unlikely rig. ...Read more

We have a 65 year old male cancer patient with the hiccups for days. How can we stop them?

We have a 65 year old male cancer patient with the hiccups for days. How can we stop them?

Find out cause: My first advice would be to find out the cause. Hiccups can be related to any type of irritation of the diaphgram, including tumor growth or metastasis. You can also get hiccups from a pleural effusion. If you can't find the cause, then I have used low-dose Chlorpromazine at a dose of 25 mg by mouth 3-4 times per day to be effective. This medication can have other serious side effects. ...Read more
