Avatar m tn beer,Vodka, you name it. He recently had varices rupture in his throat, causing him to vomit blood and pass it in his bowels. He was admitted to the hospital for around 9 days or so. He did well for a while when he got home, but admitted that after a few weeks he sipped some beer. The other day he admitted to having more. My brother told me he got drunk, though Dad never admitted to it on his own. He's too proud to get in front of people (even doctors) and admit he's a problem drinker.
Avatar m tn Thyroid cancer tends to be very slow growing and non-aggressive with very low mortality. It's also very common. Standard treatment to remove it surgically, which was done. Likely it would have never caused you problems and it's gone anyways.
Avatar n tn s like the whole experience leaves you with a deep sense of mortality, but the breast cancer patient is immediately distracted with all the treatment options, plus is allowed to feel sad, angry, etc. If benign, you are SUPPOSED to feel happy, but instead that feeling of mortality lingers. Other comments?
Avatar m tn Also, they had performed a thoriac cleaning of his throat veins just before the bypass to avoid any possibility of brain stroke (his throat arteries were 70% blocked that supply blood to brain) The stated risk of his mortality was 12% before the operation. Finally, he had no diabeties, sugar, BP, or other ailment. At the age of 63, he was a regular smoker though. MY QUESTION IS: IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE THAT DOCTORS ARE INNOCENT AND THEY DID NOTHING WRONG TO CAUSE HIS DEATH?
Avatar m tn The average age of acquiring oral HPV 16 (the only type associated with throat cancer) is 20-30, but the average age at onset of throat cancer is 50-60. By contrast, most cervical cancer probably occurs within 10 years acquiring HPV. You can do the math. The issue of throat cancer with HPV isn't all that new; it's been an active area of research for a decade or so. Here are a couple threads about it: http://www.medhelp.org/posts/STDs/Oral-HPV-Cancer-Risk/show/1512873 http://www.
Avatar m tn I'm only 14 years old and there's a bump on my anus.. it's about the size of a pea, maybe a little smaller but I can see it clearly on the anus. I'm VERY VERY scared that it could be something like cancer. It's like under the skin and it's sorta hard so I'm thinking it's probably cancer. I'm really freaking out right now and I don't know what to do! Is there a likely chance that my mortality is at risk? and what could this growth be?
Avatar f tn We have never seen a number needed to treat with an endpoint of mortality that is this low. Oncologic interventionalists would be ecstatic if they could have a cancer regimen that would prevent cancer or treat cancer with this type of number needed to treat. Get off the dime. Look hard at your cirrhotic and fibrotic patients. Don't wait for new therapies.
Avatar f tn My symptoms are sore throat, sever neck pain and cough.
Avatar f tn t they cured cancer yet, or wishing for the cure. There are hundreds of different types of cancers and they call react differently to chemicals (medicines). There are people with PVCs who are at higher risk but it's not because of the PVCs per se, it's due to the root cause which could be something like ARVD, or a defect, and having these issues creates symptoms like PVCs. Don't focus on the PVCs themselves. Focus on the health of the cardiac muscle.
Avatar n tn coronary heart disease, stroke, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, hip fracture, pulmonary embolus, and death due to all causes. A lot of additional data was collected in order to compare similar groups of women in terms of other factors. The women were similar in terms of baseline risk factors for cardiovascular disease and cancer, although the women who had their ovaries removed were slightly older and slightly more likely to be using or have used hormone therapy.

When considering these stats remember that they do not include the people who would have died if they did not get a liver transplant. http://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/C/cFAQ.
Avatar n tn I had no node involvement and the cancer was er+ 60% and pr+90%. My first question is does my chance of survival change because the pr was more receptive than the er or does hormone therapy work as successfully on either. I have also been on tamoxifen for the past few months but I am about to commence ovary suppression with zoladex and then start femara. Would this be what you would recommend for my type of cancer or should I stay on tamoxifen for another 1 to 2 years and then change.
Avatar n tn my mother thinks she has throat cancer...i think barretts....since she was little she would always have her stomach acid flow through her throat.....( idon't know if that makes sense, like when she is laying down it flows back into her throat) and so over the years, her throat has suffered from the acid...she also feels pain in her throat...her throat burns everytime she talks and swallows (occasionally). her voice has became rough/scratchy. she also feels a lump in her throat. help me....
331673 tn?1199354285 I was given a choice to either quit smoking and hope that we were early enough to have caught it, and hope that my throat repairs itself, or end up with throat cancer and all that goes with it. I quit smoking. My following check ups have been all good. I am LUCKY, because I didnt wait, I have lost to many friends and family to cancer, (on my husbands side even non smokers). So please dont wait, get to a Doctor. I may not be here today if I didnt Jump to it.
Avatar f tn It helped to calm my fears and he talks about the same article I read which states high strain hpv (not the kind causing warts but the kind causing cervical cancer) is now a big factor in the rise of throat cancer. According to him less than 5% of people with high strain develop throat cancer. I can rest a little better now. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn My husband has/ had throat cancer. He went through kemo and radiation. He is going to tested Fri. to see if treatment worked. He still has very bad breath. Also 2 other spots have shown up too. He also has a large lump on his leg.
