Itchy skin liver cancer

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy skin liver cancer


Avatar n tn Itchiness of the whole body could be due to extreme dryness of the skin or due to jaundice. It could be due to iron deficiency anemia, liver and kidney disorders, thyroid disorders, polycythemia, diabetes and malignancies (cancer). It could also be due to certain medications and food. Others could be due to skin conditions like contact dermatitis and scabies. In contact dermatitis exposure to an irritant like a chemical or metal or anything you are allergic to, can cause rash and itching.
Avatar f tn I informed my physician and she did a bile fractioned plasma test and checked my liver. We have a strong family history of liver/stomach cancer in the family, my labs came back negative, thank god! She said if they were positive I would have to be induced.
Avatar n tn these viruses increase the risk of liver cancer by more than 10-fold. The incidence of liver cancer among Americans more than doubled between 1975 and 1998. The number of new cases of liver cancer and the associated number of liver cancer deaths are expected to double again in the U.S. over the next 10 to 20 years. The social and fiscal costs associated with chronic viral hepatitis are increasing exponentially.
Avatar n tn My father is 83, and terminally ill with secondary liver cancer, metastasized from colon cancer. He has begun to sleep more and more, taking a 2-3 hr. morning nap and 3-4 hrs. in the afternoon. He has no pain, thus far, I believe because he is diabetic. He has had two massive heart attacks and never felt anything. Can we finally see a positive side to diabetes??
Avatar f tn Just a thought, I have PBC and AIH so I can suffer terribly from itchy skin. It is that bad that you want to rip the skin off. Now my meds have sorted I am ok for now but I did have something general at the start which was helpful. Questran. This product is for itchy scalp conditions, scalp meaning the skin all over the body. Also , a general vitamin E6 cream to put back some of the essentials on to the skin helps. Try anything, its worth it as not every remedy suits every person.
Avatar m tn Hello, Itchy skin can be a manifestation of eczema,psoriasis, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders,diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals,wool,soaps,cosmetics and certain foods. But these pins and needles sensations are different.
Avatar m tn Dog gets plenty of exercise, eats well, no urinary or bowel problems, no cancer, liver, or kidney problems (yet), but when night comes especially the scratching and snorting are unbearable. Also, the occasional barking. We are now with a new highly regarded vet who is doing allergy tests. The dog is deaf (I believe caused by too lengthy dental surgery at one point) and cataracts are progressing.
Avatar f tn For the past few years, I have had a problem with unbearable itchy skin. It occurs mostly on my arms and legs, but sometimes on my stomach as well. Recently I have even been getting small rashes on the tops of my hands; they manifest as small light red bumps, and usually last a few hours. The itchiness is worse after I shave, but even if I go for weeks without shaving, it still itches.

Avatar n tn As soon as I even lightly brush the area it gets insanely itchy, prickly and hot and I end up scratching off some off my skin. The itchy prickly feeling is deep in my skin and is so distressing sometimes I feel like I'm going to go insane!
Avatar m tn Within the last month I've been to 3 different doctors and 2 ER Visits I've had 2 ultrasounds and 2 CT scans and showed everything as normal I've also experienced back pain and also was diagnosed with H Pylori with possible ulcer. Also floating stools,itchy skin and abdominal pain have happened I've been checked for hepatitis and my liver enzymes were high at one for the ER visits I'm very scared and think I might have pancreatic cancer Any advice would be great.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it does not sound like eczema or ringworm which present as rashes and not itchy bumps. From the symptoms it can be scabies bites or folliculitis skin. Scabies is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs.
Avatar m tn Atopic eczema is a relatively common skin condition affecting about ten percent of children in the United States. In the mild forms the skin is dry, hot and itchy. In its more severe manifestations, the skin may become broken, raw and bleeding. The double-blind randomized placebo-controlled study published in Lancet involved 159 pregnant women with a family history of allergies.
Avatar n tn I have similar sounding problem. Very itchy and dry looking skin round the eye area, including the bridge of my nose. One eye is worse than the other. I have tried vaseline, aloe vera gel, even steroid cream which the doc prescribed after diagnosing blepharitis. I don't think it's blepharitis as a lot of the symptoms don't match, eg I don't have crusty or sticky eyes in the morning any more than is normal. Have trawled the net and can't find anything other than an allergic problem.
928257 tn?1296677092 Hi Ma'am, How are you? The itching may be attributed to skin disorders, certain diseases, certain medications, dry skin, contact with irritants, fungal infection and the act of scratching can cause further itching. Systemic diseases that can cause itching include liver disease, kidney failure, lymphomas, leukemias and other blood disorders, and, occasionally, thyroid disease, diabetes, and cancer. Have this evaluated further to rule out conditions mentioned.
Avatar m tn So today I went to get my results from Endocrinologist and everything was normal except my liver functions that are really bad: In the link below I have published my liver function results from 2010. My risk was in Feb 2012. is there any connection my liver functions and white tongue? Maybe what is causing it? it's a virus? I am going for further testing next week.
Avatar m tn Is it associated with the HPV or could it possibly be HIV?? I don't feel bad just have increased acne and an itchy scalp? I know that HIV can be asymptomatic for a long time and before I got the genital warts I did have a flu-like symptom and even a canker sore. I am going to get tested again for HIV because it could have been false negative since its too early to tell, but that is still a while to wait. Anyone have this or know why this is happening to me???
Avatar n tn Most of the symptoms you describe could be from many things. Itchy skin from liver metastasis does not usually occur unless the bile duct is blocked or there is extensive disease. It is usually accompanied by jaundice elevated liver enzymes and bilirubin levels. You might consider a discussion with your primary care doctor to evaluate other possible causes of your symptoms.
506981 tn?1223188996 Hi SriPrabu Really sorry to hear about your mother. Looks like the cancer has infiltrated to the liver/bile duct also. I am sorry to say that the chances are high as it was originally stomach cancer had already affected gall-bladder. "The bile ducts are the tubes connecting the liver and gall bladder to the small intestine (small bowel). If cancer develops in the bile ducts it may block the flow of bile from the liver to the intestine.
Avatar n tn I have to watch out though because sometimes I'll notice the area stays too moist so I have to spread out the cocoa butter more later. And sometimes the area right between my scrotum/thighs will get irritated and the skin gets itchy and irritated and will start to form a circle-ish area of irritated skin that will start to look smooth and shiny. That's when I have to use a steroid cream.

Avatar n tn I have a red circular rash which does not appear to be ring worm. It is not scaly or itchy but starts as a small red circle and then widens out.

5562826 tn?1369943481 You also are prone to liver cancer and need to be monitored for cancer every 6 months. There are too many details to go into here but the first and most important step is to be seeing a hepatologist at a liver transplant center. They are the only doctor that can diagnose the cause of your liver disease, treat it and monitor it. An individual gastroenterologist does not have the knowledge or experience of working with cirrhosis on a daily basis. Get help now.
