When The Cancer Spread To Your Lipnose
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
In many ways: Cancers can spread in many ways- it spreads to distant organs through the blood vessels or through lymph nodes or along nerves. It can also spread locally by directly growing into surrounding organs. ...Read more
It depends on the type of cancer and and the part of body is effected by it
some cancers spread very fast and others are slow in their spread to other organs and parts of your body
so all cancers are not alike and so the sprerad is not the same for different cancers in different organ systems and parts of your body. ...Read more
Basal cell carcinomas are among the slowest growing tumors. Prompt treatment is still warranted if the lesion is near the eye, nose or mouth. You may consult this site for more info: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/basal-cell-carcinoma/symptoms-causes/syc-20354187
Wish you 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
What cancer? stage?: You need to discuss that with your oncology team obviously. Everything will depend on what kind of cancer you have, the stage, the margins , biology of cancer etc. There are many things should be considered when deciding therapy for cancer. Rephrase your question, you will perhaps receive better answer. But your oncology team will be the ones who can give you the best answer at this time. ...Read more
Varies : Depends on the affected organ. Brain: headaches, seizures, cognitive changes. Liver: weight loss, swelling, pain, jaundice. Lung: pain, cough, shortness of breath, bleeding. Bone: pain, fractures, elevated calcium. Many times there are no symptoms at a given time. If you have/had cancer and there is any suspicion of spread, talk to your doc please. Best to you. ...Read more
We hope not.: What makes a cancer "evil" is the ability of cancer cells to travel outside of the organ where they arose and take over another organ; this is how cancer can be life-threatening. In advanced cases of cancer, we can identify these "invaders", but most often, these cells are present but undetectable. The stage of the cancer gives us an estimate of this probability, leading to the rec for chemorx. ...Read more
Yes: By the time of onset of obvious symptoms, most cancers have spread. This is why surveillance is so important. Skin cancers are the ones you're most likely to spot early. ...Read more
Mutation: Cancer is an abnormal proliferation of cells. There are mutations in the dna that lead to the uncontrolled growth of the cells.There are certain environmental factors like tobacco smoke or radiation that are clear mutagens.The cells grow rapidly and lose their contact inhibition-thus their local spread and invasion. Cancers can also spread through the blood and set up at distant sites (metastases). ...Read more
Good and balanced: A good and balanced diet is your best defense. A well nourished body has a better chance to fight cancer than a poorly nourished one. So, consume good levels of protein. Include a variety of fruits, vegetables, and nuts. The greater variety, the more likely you'll consume the proper nutrients. And, don't smoke and take it easy with adult beverages. Good luck. ...Read more
Give us background?:
There is always a reason when you pose a question. So let us know what do you have in mind?
Many chemotherapy drugs interfere with cell cycle but it does not help anyone to know about this; so tell us why is this question relevant to you? ...Read more
No: It is essential that all primary tumors even in the face of metastasis be surgically resected. This gives the best opportunity either for cure or long term management. if one decides to open an abdomen to resect a tumor that they complete the task. Opening an abdomen and then closing because of misjudgement and leaving the tumor behind does place the immune system at a risk with poorer survival. ...Read more
Can you tell me if they want to check if cancer has spread to some other part of the body then what kind of scan would they do?
Good luck.: And that's what it is. You've done your part by choosing to seek treatment. Once the cancer is diagnosed, operated, graded, and staged, it is a waiting game. The large majority of common papillary carcinomas confined to the gland do not spread. Almost all anaplastic carcinomas spread and kill. Your physician must talk frankly with you about this. Good luck, and be strong. ...Read more
Spine Metastasis: Usually nothing happens, actually. If patients with breast cancer, as many as 80% will have mets at autopsy. So, it depends upon tumor type. Lytic tumors do weaken the bone and could cause fracture (myeloma, lung, renal cell, thyroid). While blastic tumors are not at higher risk of fracture. Worst case is aggressive tumors that cause spinal cord pressure and possible paralysis. Pain precedes these. ...Read more
No: It is hard to transplant a tumor. Even if the cells are in the bloodstream and bear the ability to form their own colonies, anybody except your identical twin will reject them as foreign. I can't recommend sharing needles -- HIV is still very much with us, as is hepatitis c and goodness knows what else. ...Read more
Multi-step process: Cancer develops due to progressive damage to the genome of the cells exposed to various insults. The initial change facilitates cell growth and additional damage changes the dna of the cells that enables them to grow unchecked, invade local tissues, including lymphatics and blood vessels. The malignant cells are then carried through the lymph and/or blood to other organs. ...Read more
Depends: Some cancers, like testicular or certain kinds of lymphomas, can be cured even if spread. Others, while incurable, are nonetheless controllable for long periods of time (often years). Examples include some kinds of lymphomas ; leukemias and some kinds of breast cancer. Sadly, some others are very aggressive and the best we can do is offer comfort. ...Read more
Each cancer has its own treatment and outcome. We need to know what type of Cancer it is? For example did it begin in Lung or breast when first treated? where is the recurrence/metastases at present??.
We have good treatments for many tumor types. If treated with modern treatments many patients with recurrence of cancer live for several years....sometimes the Cancer is eradicated/patient is cured ...Read more
Perhaps the most: Misguided myth of cancer and cancer treatment. There is no evidence or credibility to this, but the cause of the myth came from premature operation before adequate work up. The "peek and shriek" occured when inadequate diagnostic work up before an operation, and when the surgeon realized nothing could be done and closed, the common phrase "the air got to it" was really more about injudicious op. ...Read more
Depends: This is a great question and really depends on the circumstances. Sometimes this is very difficult to tell, and prompts doctors to look for other signs. In breast and liver cancer, multifocal usually means that these are multiple individual cancers that arise due to a "field defect". Your medical oncologist can help you understand your particular case better. ...Read more
Detecting cancer: Many cancers are silent until they spread. Symptoms arise when they spread to compress nerves, blood supply or other vital functions. Some cancers produce hormones or mediators and can produce abnormal signs and symptoms drawing suspicion by means of abnormal dynamic metabolic function, and abnormal test results. ...Read more
