Can ovarian cancer be caused by hormones like some breast cancers? I had a false-positive pregnancy test and have ovarian cancer.
I had a positive HLA B27, positive ANA, positive SM anitobody, and a positive RNP. and Raynauds, is this likely Lupus?
Lupus is a clinical: Diagnosis, made based on the presence of physical symptoms and specific organ involvement and is not a diagnosis made by the presence of a genotype or auto antibody. What symptoms have you had that prompted your physician to do this series of tests? What is the opinion of the rheumatologist seeing you (or are you still awaiting a visit with rheum?)

Can a person have mixed connective tissue disease with a positive ANA and low positive rnp levels?
Inprobable: Hight titers of anti rnp antibodies are the trade mark of mctd however it is possible to be in early phase of transformation from a lupus background were other anas are still dominant. The clinical picture would take precedent with overlapping signs such as raynaulds, myositis and other signs of scleroderma. None of these tests are diagnsotic in the absence of clinical illness. ...Read more
I have a positive Ana test plus a positive SSB antibody. Also a high gran% and low lymph%. Lots of fatigue and joint pain. Can you diagnose?
Nonspecific: The diagnosis is that there are positive antibodies. This is not a useful diagnosis. Fatigue, joint pain and some white blood cell changes are not specific for a disease and could occur in the absence of any autoimmune disease. See your doctor and explore any other symptoms that are of concern. ...Read more
Is there a benefit to chemotherapy in hormone receptor positive, node positive postmenopausal breast cancer?
Often: There is increasing data based on the oncotype DX test in women with 1-3 positive notes that shows that some women will not get much benefit from chemo and some will get a great deal. It can be useful in cases where a woman is reluctant to take chemo. This is done on tissue that has been already removed. Most oncologists believe that women who have multiple positive nodes should get chemotherapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Mother had lobular breast cancer at 52-- post menopause.Negative for brca genes, atm, p53, cdh1, etc. Is there a strong likelihood i'll get it a well?
Possible: Various causes result in breast cancer in a family. If BRACA is neg then there is no genetic relationship to getting the Ca.

Also recognized that endogenous sequences of virus can be passed and when proper reorganization of the sequences takes place, the viral genome can induce cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lyme antibody positive and western blot negative. Where can I find a complete list of other id's associated with a positive igm/igm antibody screen?!
Probably have Lyme!: I don't know where to find such a list as I am not sure the causes of a false positive are known, but, esp. If the western blot did not include the 34 ; 39 bands i would not rely upon it; please do the igenex western blot, which is much more sensitive ; specific for lyme. Even if that is negative 20-30% with lyme can have a negative WB test. Other tests may be indicated. See http://bit.Ly/1aaqjgc. ...Read more
