What is the life expectancy of my father in law if he just got diagnosed with stage 2 lung cancer?
BRACA dependent: Since it takes many hits and time for a cell to transform, breast cancer is most frequent over the age of 40. With BRACA mutations congenital breast malignancies can develop under the age of 20. Any mass appearing in a young womans breast must be evaluated as a fibroadenoma or developing malignancy. Patients without BRACA have been seen as young as 17 y.o. ...Read more
If my father sisters are died because of breast cancer how much chances of mine to develop this disease?
How many? how old?: Breast cancer affects one in seven women, so having an aunt or two with breast cancer is not unusual. More important, though, is to know how old they were. If they were under age 45, that is cause for concern. Make sure that you follow breast cancewr screening guidelines when the time comes. For now, i would just pay particular attention if you develop any unusual lumps. Early diagnosis = key. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Grade 3 stage 2 her 2 breast cancer how deadly is this what is the chances of survival for 70 yr old woman, what to do?
High risk : Grade 3, stage 2, her 2 over expressed, high risk for recurrence. I would recommend adjuvant chemotherapy and Herceptin (trastuzumab). Herceptin (trastuzumab) is then given for a year. If she has not had surgery yet, then one would definitely consider neo adjuvant chemotherapy with Herceptin (trastuzumab) and Pertuzumab. Age is not a reason not to treat! In addition a 70 year old patient may do very well with chemotherapy. Not old. ...Read more
Too young: After fifteen pack-years (for example, three packs a day for five years), your risk increases. Even if lung cancer is most common in older folks, i've seen it in folks in their twenties. Perhaps worse, smoking will slow down your athletic abilities which i hope are important to you, especially at your age. Don't make some jackass tobacco company ceo rich.

I was wondering for my 17 year old what would be the chances of surving colon cancer ? If it spread to the spleen what stage would it be?Will he die?
Why do you ask?: First, it's extremely uncommon for a 17 year old to have ordinary colon cancer unless there's a pre-existing multiple-polyps syndrome. Second, colon cancer almost never spreads to the spleen. Something is not right here. You need to find out exactly what's happening before you make any plans. I hope you get this solved. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

What do you suggest if my mom has a grade 3 stage 2 her 2 breast cancer how deadly is this what is the chances of survival?
Many cured, not all: Stage 2 breast cancer is cancer which has spread to the lymph nodes of the armpit. After surgery, most patients benefit from adjuvant therapy. That is treatment given to prevent recurrence. Depending on details of case that may be hormonal therapy or chemotherapy. HER2 positive patients also benefit from Herceptin (trastuzumab) to prevent recurrence. Many, but alas not all, patients are cured. ...Read more

Why do you ask?: A close relative with early breast cancer may prompt a genetic study. Otherwise, stop second-guessing your odds. This isn't productive. Report any dominant breast mass to your physician without delay, and comply with your physician's other recommendations on screening. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Glad you've quit: You will never recover the damage to the elasticity in your lungs, and this will take away some of your wind as you get older. Lung cancer's rare at your age even smoking. You will have a somewhat increased cancer risk for the next two decades but it is still low. The key is that you have overcome this godawful addiction. It is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and those who love you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Two out of three people diagnosed with lung cancer are over age 60. In my practice, I have seen rare examples of younger patients (in their thirties) diagnosed with lung cancer. Disease onset is specific to each patient. ...Read more
Mainly in older peop: There is no specific age in lung cancer, yes it is possible at age 20, but extremely rare, it can happen even in people who never smoked. However the majority of lung cancer patients are in their 50s and older, and the longer the history of smoking, the higher the risk. There are multiple research projects going on to try to identify genetic/hereditary factors. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

In rare instances, i see patients in their 40s and 30s. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am just curious about what are the first symptoms of lung cancer, how long does it take a smoker to get it and what is the average age of diagnosis?
Often asymptomatic.: This is often asymptomatic with about 5-15% detected from symptoms. Pesistent cough is the usual presenting sign, with hemoptysis, wheeze, dyspnea or difficulty breathing, depending on its site. Hoarseness, and respiratory failure can mean spread beyond the lungs. This occurs most at 55-65 years and since smoking is the most common cause, it likely takes from its start so don't start smoking. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Use of tobacco in any form can start the process for many diseases, including cancer, heart and lung disorders, though it may occur years later. You may get addicted to tobacco and may not be able to quit it when you realize that it is bad for your health.
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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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, if you have sex. ...Read more

The best thing you can do for yourself is to quit smoking, which decreases risk immensely! ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

No test: Lung cancer generally develops over numerous years. It is unlikely for you to develop lung cancer in short term. Having smoked does increase risk over longterm. There is no indicated screening test for your age and extent of exposure. Stopping, and stopping young will allow your increased risk for both lung and other diseases to decrease. http://goo.gl/q3itr. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

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
