Ovarian Cancer Spread To The Kidney
Yes that would be th: Spread into kidney is uncommon. It may occur by surface implantation when there is intra-abdominal tumor all round the kidneys or it could spread via blood although that is a less common route of spread for ovarian cancer compared to most other cancers.
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
Yes, but...: It is possible that a renal ultrasound might detect some findings associated with ovarian cancer but the cancer would have to be relatively advanced for such findings to be present. Ascites (fluid in the abdomen) soft tissue masses on the abdominal wall (peritoneal implants), and blockage of the kidneys may be seen. The ovaries themselves would not typically be studied.
Death: Hopefully, a dignified and graceful passing from this earth.
31 YO Female. Very mild muscle type pain in right side, some in hip and lower back. Only symptoms and 4 days from start of period. Ovarian cancer?
Back pain&ovarianCA: Ovarian ca is the silent ca. It is hard to diagnosis and it can be easily confused with other problems. Symptoms are bloating, pelvic and back pain, frequent urination, difficulty eating, weight loss, which have been present for at least 6-12 months. The most common cause of frequency and back pain is a bladder infection...But pleas see your doctor and get checked out for both.See 1 more doctor answer
Ovarian cancer? Sometimes achy lower back, pellet like stool with constipation can't sleep at night. Regular periods though and no family history.
Unlikely given age.: But your symptoms need to be dealt with. Please see your doctor for a complete history and physical. Basic treatments for constipation should be undertaken - your symptoms could all be related to constipation. Imaging of your pelvis (ovaries and uterus primarily) with ultrasound may also be helpful, especially if basic treatments do not resolve your symptoms.
21 yrs old, cramps not on period, lower back pain, I do go to gym a lot but is this ovarian cancer? I am on the nuva vaginal ring. Help please
Cramps: See that you are 21 years old. Ovarian cancer is rare in women under 40. So the odds would be low that this is your issue.
I get full easily, throw up after meals, sleep a lot, pee a lot, and have a lot of pain in my lower back and near my hips/abdomen. Ovarian cancer?
Probably not: At your age, ovarian cancer is extremely rare. You need to see your MD to find out what the problem is. It may be a gastrointestinal problem.
Stage 3 ovarian cancer diagnosed 2 weeks ago spread to abdomen. Drained fluid only. Docs say liver&kidney too poor for chemo. What are next options?
Get other opinions: If you were my patient I would recommend getting another opinion especially at a center that may have access to experimental protocols. Ask if there is anything to do to improve your chances for getting chemo. Surround yourself with supportive family and friends.See 2 more doctor answers
Pelvis & abomen: Commonly when advaced spreads in the abdomen affecting the peritoneum producing increased intra pelvic and abdominal fluid. As most cancers may spread to liver, lung, brain, bone. Most ovarian cancer produce symptoms only in advanced stages with nonspecific sensations of increased belly or intraabdominally discomfort. Ca 125 is not a screening test because of so many false positives and negatives.See 1 more doctor answer
Hi. Ovarian cancer, spread to bowel. Was considered for HIPEC but spread to small bowel means surgery not possible. Any alternatives to palliative chemo?
Here are my suggesti: Ovarian Cancer often involved multiple organs in the abdomen including the small bowel. In fact the bowel involvement is very common. Because of the above reasoning, surgery (often called Debulking surgery) is commonly done first treatment for optimum results. Chemotherapy is often done following surgery (with a few exceptions where Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (done first, before surgery) is preferred.
Can be helped: A radical resection of the omentum essentially removing the entire cake of tumor is performed eliminating vasucular permeability factor that leads to ascites. All peritoneal nodules are resected to smaller than 1 cm. And patient then placed on chemotherapy. Occassionally hyperthermic peritoneal chemotherapy lavage employed. Often patients may be cured if not helped in terms of survival.
Depends on surgery: Ovarian cancer has a high incidence of metastasis. When it occurs surgical debuling is the procedure of choice. The omentum becomes involved due to presence of TGF-B producing caking and leading to ascites followed by diaphragm and small bowel seeding. Best results with total omentectomy and debulking to no lesion left that is larger than 1 cm or smaller. Chemo then can be effective.
What are my chances of getting ovarian cancer? My aunt had something that spread through her abdomen but we never heard what it was before she died.
A plaque like coating over part of the liver, could this spread into the liver. My wife is an ovarian cancer sufferer aged 54?
Ovarian cancer: Tumor coatings of the liver are very frequent in ovarian cancer. They are readily ablated safely at the time of primary debulking. Ovarian cancer can invade the liver but happens through blood-borne spread not direct invasion.
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
