You are way out!: You have a load of anxiety without any good reason. Just relax and forget that you have cancer. If you had the cancer, it will not remain hidden.

Does early stage small cell lung cancer cause vitamin deficiencies through malabsorption? Would it be seen on CT at this point?

No; but poor diet ca: Vitamin deficiencies (more than 1) like those of which you speak come from a poor diet that often includes alcohol or cigarettes. All of those can, in turn, cause small cell lung cancer but not necessarily. Cancer patients often eat poorly, but there are other reasons (liver disease, heart failure, kidney disease) which can do the same thing. Go to your doctor, get checked out. ...Read more

Good luck, stay proactive. ...Read more
Hi, I am ngoan, vietnamese. My moon have a lung cancer and metastasis in bony. She will do chemo on this december 17. Can she use fucoidan? Thanks
Go ahead: Suit yourself and don't spend too much money on it. If you possess a basic knowledge of bioscience, you'll realize that essentially all the work that "shows effects of fucoidan" is done on cell cultures, not living organisms. This has been going on for thirty years with weak animal work appearing only in obscure no-impact journals. Do you want to give your money to people who mislead others? ...Read more
