Cancer Overview

Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body.[2][8] These contrast with benign tumors, which do not spread to other parts of the body.[8] Possible signs and symptoms include a lump, abnormal bleeding, prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss, and a change in bowel movements.[1] While these symptoms may indicate cancer, they may have other causes.[1] Over 100 types of cancers affect humans.[8] Tobacco use is the ...

47 Replies RSS Share
I am Rex, 86 yrs old and l live on an Iowa farm. I had my prostate removed 20 yards ago. I now have anogel on my lung. I have read about CL4 cancer cure shots would this be any thing I could use? Can I get it in pills? I had six heart bypass in 2004 at McAllen heart hospital. My blood psi. 120/80 every day, I am very active I have machine & welding shop I work in every day on my Iowa us farm. Can you help me? ## Hi Rex, Sorry to hear about your situation. I was just doing some research on CL4 and despite information being sparse, I did find a medical journal (linked below) that depicted CL4 as "a nuclease-resistant RNA-aptamer", which according to their investigation, is able to bind at high affinity to EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptors) on the surface of different can...

Letrozole Tablet color?
2 Replies RSS Share
I just received letrozole 2.5 mg tablets (generic for Femara) which are supposed to be yellow but are a mauve color not yellow? They are round shaped with N stamped on 1st side & L on the 2nd side. I am concerned about the color. these pills were produced by Breckenridge co. ## Our listings also say they should be yellow. The color, however, doesn't actually mean anything, so the company may have changed it, but I'd suggest double checking with your pharmacy to be certain. Have you contacted them to ask? ## MY tabs are also peach or a more mauve color, FROM BRECKINRIDGE! I tried to send them a question but only pharmacists and doctors can question them. Very irresponsible of this company to not update their description.

Efudex-40 (fluorouracil)

all information about this medication ## I have been told to apply Efudex to my lower lip, isn't this crazy? ## Not really. It is listed in the drug monograph that it can be used topically to treat certain cancerous or possibly cancerous conditions. ## Has anyone used it on their lips? Won't it just keep bleeding non-stop? ## Heidi- I've used it on my lips three times. Each time it was an application morning and at bedtime. Though about the second week it gets very sensitive and blister-like lesions appear that means it's working. I applied a product called Acquafor (like Vaseline Jelly) to seal it and protect). The healing takes some time but the outcome is worth it. ## I just used Efudex for 2 weeks on lower lip. from day 7 blistered and ulcerated and wept and crusted....

My husband has been pazopanib for one week. The side effects are, loss of appetite, blisters on his tongue, and fatigue. Does it get better the longer you are on it? Does your body adjust? Or is this how his life is going to be? I have lots of questions for someone who has been on Pazopanib, and would love to talk to someone. {edited for privacy} ## My husband has been on it for about 2 weeks and he's having the same side effects so I would also like to know that answer to this question. ## These are listed by the FDA as normal side effects of this medication. Unfortunately, most cancer medications are very harsh and such side effects rarely go away, but tend to continue for the duration of treatment. Other side effects, may also include hypertension, diarrhea, vomiting, insomnia an...

I have used Efudix twice in two years and found it very good
Post a Reply Share
At 94 this is my second year of need and I think I did wrong by ignoring the first sign of an eruption. Last year it was just one spot on my forehead and took five weeks to clear. This year I ignored the first signs and continued long walks in the cold windy weather and that I think caused the spread from one side of my head to the other. As I cannot stand attending a doctor and it takes three weeks to see one,I used out of date Efudix and it worked as well as ever. My only problem now is hiding the scabs and removing the "snow storm" from wherever I walk. Please can anyone tell me whether if I have another attack will an immediate application of Efudix prevent it spreading? My health otherwise is as near perfect as I could expect.

Does Gleevec work for accute eczema and accute dry skin as per rumor ? ## I don't have any information on this, but I can tell you that there have been several people posting that it has worked and several others who have heard of it and have been asking the same types of questions Gleevec is currently approved to treat certain types of cancer, so the side effects of these types of medications can be pretty prodigious and I am not certain it would be worth using to treat a skin condition. You can read more on it here: Does anyone else have experience using this? ## It gave me a rash and bad itching. Took a low dose of Prednisone to get rid of it. I would say NO !

Gleevec side effects
2 Replies RSS Share
Can anyone else tell me how long gone after starting gleevec gleevec will side effects show hp? ## It can vary from person to person, some people may experience side effects upon the first dose, but for others it may take a week or so, and there are always some people that don't experience any. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, vomiting, skin rash, diarrhea and joint/muscle pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I vaguely remember being told Gleevec and antihistamines do not mix, can anyone confirm this ?

if we are suffering from cancer than what can we do

if we are suffering from cancer than what can we do ## There are various treatment options available, it really depends on what type of cancer and what country you are in. Many people with some types of it live long lives, now, as compared to several years ago, where the prognosis wasn't good for anyone. What country are you in and what type of cancer? ## Just wanted to add to this; depending on the type of cancer your dealing with, there are various dietary habits that promote your ability to be cancer free. I can suggest a few changes that would be very beneficial in this regard, such as: -lowering your protein and fat intake to only 10% of your total calories for the day. -eat a diet that consists primarily of fresh raw fruits and veggies (with a higher emphasis on fruit for calo...
