Avatar f tn sometimes I feel sorry for myself but I know so many people who have fought cancer and been in remission. Infact my neighbor just beat breast cancer. But, my mother died at age 44 from breast cancer, so who knows. The good thing is I have three georgous children in case they need to take everything out. I would die if I could not have had children. so thats the good news!!!!! NOW if I could just beat these pills that would lower my STRESS and life would be better.

Avatar f tn I didn't think it was anything but to make a long story short, I'm 40 years old, no and I mean NO family history of breast cancer and the lump turned out to be invasive ductal breast cancer. So far I've had two surgeries and have to do chemo and radiation. Luckily I caught it early. Turns out that the tumor was hormone receptive (meaning hormones fed it) and that the HCG was making it grow so..................just a warning out there for anyone taking this. I did lose weight.

Avatar f tn At my appointment two weeks ago it was the main topic again. I talked with my NP about a breast cancer scare in November that had imaging studies totally contradict pathology. He thoughtfully said, "Let's check for focal nodular hyperplasia, that can affect your liver's appearance." So that was cool. Alas, no FNH and the CT results came back with the same "nodular, bumpy surface typical of a cirrhotic liver." Can't wait for the Phase 3 info to go up. Thanks all.
Avatar f tn I have gone to the doctor so many times and they always tell me maybe it is my lympnodes or cancer.. I had a breast ultrasound done and there is no trace of cancer. I had blood work done and there is no traceof infection so... Upon removal of this tissue they are going to send it out for testing. I am very anxious to get this procedure done. The surgeon advised me the procedure will take 30-45 minutes and of course it is Same Day Surgery. I will let everyone know how it goes.
475555 tn?1469307939 Maybe we shouldn't have helped Jonas Salk study polio, heck, we shouldn't have helped them discover and refine breast cancer drugs, or child luekemia drugs...what we need is less drug company involvement and more dead people??????????????????????????????????????????????????????? Personally, I find it offensive to assume that there are no human beings with good motives anywhere within most of the hcv advocates, or the drug companies, or any other community.
765439 tn?1292964014 I got the vet to remove this breast lump, and it was found to have become partly cancer. Removing it, (and a few weeks later other breast tissue that seemed suspect) proved to be a complete cure (for that particular ailment anyway) The vet told me it's impossible in most cases to tell if a lump is cancer or not by simply examining it. He also told me that the majority of dog lumps are in fact NOT cancer. Statistically, the cance of malignancy is lower than we think.
18954 tn?1314301717 Hi Last night on the news I heard that Michael Douglas was told his throat cancer was caused by oral sex with a partner who had HPV. Is this true? Is this possible? What are the odds of this happening and does this mean everyone should refrain from having oral sex, unless they have an HPV test done first? Are there other STD's that cause oral cancers? Your help with this will be GREATLY appreciated!
Avatar m tn About INO-5150 for Prostate Cancer Inovio's dual-antigen synthetic DNA vaccine (INO-5150) targets prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) and prostate-specific antigen (PSA).
Avatar f tn No it is not breast cancer as I went to the OBGYN and they said with breast cancer you normally do not have any pain. Costochondritis causes pain and tenderness in the locations where your ribs attach to your breastbone (costosternal joints). Often the pain is sharp, though it can also feel like a dull, gnawing pain. Pain associated with costochondritis occurs most often on the left side of your breastbone, though it can occur on either side of your chest.

167426 tn?1254089835 FRIDAY, Jan. 11 (HealthDay News) -- Therapeutic vaccines to fight ovarian and breast cancer are in the first stage of clinical trials to determine their safety and effectiveness, researchers report. The vaccine for ovarian cancer, developed by Dr. George Coukos, an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania's division of gynecologic oncology, is designed to "re-educate" the patient's immune system cells to destroy cancer cells.
561476 tn?1220959376 I feel for these women with breast cancer, or any type of cancer for that matter, but come on people breast cancer survives for an average of at least 5 years beyond diagnoses and here ovarian cancer can't even get an accurate diagnoses test. I'm sad to say that for the first time today I refused packaging that had a pink ribbon on it. Yes I went to my local grocery store and on their paper bags for this month they are supporting pink ribbons, and I asked for plastic instead.
Avatar f tn ) There is a fact that men could develop breast cancer if it runs in the family. My mother had breast cancer in the early 80s (not a survivor) and our grandmother had an unidentified cancer in 1970 (not a survivor) and with this family history, I did not hesitate to consider the test. Although I tested negative for the BRCA, that is not to say my sister won't develop a cancer. It just means I don't have the gene and is unlikely that she has it.
242516 tn?1368227505 Studies of anti-vira drugs (Tamiflu and Relenza with limited data sets) show no evidence of toxicity to either pregnant or breast-feeding moms (CMAJ 7/7/09).

931415 tn?1244681111 Unfortunately, a frequent topic on SBM has been the anti-vaccine movement, personified these days by celebrity spokesmodel for Generation Rescue Jenny McCarthy and her boyfriend comedian and actor Jim Carrey. Unfortunately, it is a topic that is unlikely to go away.
167426 tn?1254089835 Debbie Saslow, PhD, director of breast and cervical cancer for the American Cancer Society, says CA-125 protein levels in the blood can be measured as a marker for ovarian cancer, but should not be used to screen for the disease. “The test is not appropriate for routine screening because of its poor accuracy; there are some harmless reasons CA-125 levels can be elevated, and not all women with an ovarian tumor will have an increased level,” she said.

Avatar f tn I have been to my gynec telling her about this concern on the leisure being provocated by HPV and she told me it's ok to take the vaccine also if I already have the 4 types of HPV because the vaccine stops the development of cancer in the future (if any development at all). Is this true? Please answer. I really would like to take the vaccine. I am 23 years and 10 days. Thank you!
1253246 tn?1332076910 So it's only natural that some people will catch a respiratory bug shortly after getting a vaccine. And since it takes about two weeks after getting a vaccine for the body to develop immunity, some of those bugs could be the flu. But the vaccine itself isn't causing disease. Myth 2: The flu is just a bad cold. While some people develop worse symptoms than others, flu symptoms tend to be much more severe than — and come on much more suddenly — than a cold.
Avatar m tn This combination is a powerful weapon in preventing cancer, especially those of the colon, breast, and prostate. A defect in a gene responsible for producing an enzyme, known as methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR). two alterations in the MTHFR enzyme. a special form of vitamin B12 injections — methyl-B12. The enzyme defect tells us that the body is unable to convert vitamin B12 to the activated form of B12, which is methyl-B12. the methylated form of the vitamin B12.

136849 tn?1327325110 I very much want a cure for breast cancer, too. My cousin I have loved for 49 years has fought breast cancer. I just want ovca to get a fair portion of funding for research.
Avatar n tn About a month ago I attended a lecture for hep c patients. The speaker was a local news anchor who recently completed tx.He was there to speak on anything he wished. I went there to see him due to a time of my own tx I was feeling the shame at the workplace and he went public that he was on tx. Right there on the news at 5pm was a man with my promblem seeking the same solution. It was a emotional uplft that I needed at that time.
163305 tn?1333672171 She had breast cancer, as well as an autoimmune disease and other medical issues, so I *always* made sure she had her flu and pneumonia shots, even though I didn't get them...... our not getting the shots still made her vulnerable, because of her age and weakened immune system. For that reason, if either of us so much as had a sniffle, twinge of sore throat, or any symptom that could be construed as an illness, we didn't go visit her, which often upset her, but was for her own good.
Avatar n tn I just read a book called "Not Just A Pretty Face". It is all about the cosmetic industry and how the products are loaded with carcinogens. Soap, deoderant, shampoo, creams, make up.... it's unreal. AND the best part is how these products often have written on them "A portion of sales go to the fight against breast cancer...etc" YET the stupid products contain chemicals known to cause cancer.
Avatar f tn They are finding that Vitamin D levels, if low, put you at a risk for breast cancer and also other cancers. Most conventional doctors are not up on all of this. I will keep you in my prayers also. Let me know how you make out. I'm sure you'll be fine.
