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 c...

Not feeling well on Zejula

This is my 5th week on Zejula 200mg daily. As suggested by the pharmacy nurse I take it at night to help with possible side effects. The first 2 weeks I felt good. Slightly nauseous and shaky in the morning but was able to function well. The 3rd week I felt nauseous and shaky but it lasted longer. I also had more good days than bad. The 4th week the nausea, shakiness and fatigue lasted most the day. I did have 2 fairly good days that week. This week so far I have felt lousy most of the day. I have had my blood work checked every week. Platelets down to 100. Rest of my CBC low normal range. I see my oncologist in 4 days. I understand the reason to take this drug but I want to feel better. I have taken the nausea med as needed, many other forms of nausea relief methods and have taken naps...

Discontinuing Megestrol Treatment

I'm elderly and have been taking megestrol, but would like to come off most of my meds... Is there an adjustment period or can you come off of megestrol fast? ## Hi Jerry, May I ask how long you've been taking Megestrol for? Often times, if someone has taken a medication long enough, there can be physical or psychological adjustment periods simply because the body is being cut off a chemical that it was used to having, even when the substance is benign in nature or non-habit-forming. However, if it's been a short while (say a few months or so), then in my opinion I don't see any reason why someone wouldn't be able to stop taking this medication cold turkey. On the other hand, because everyone reacts/responds differently (due to various underlying factors), the only w...

what are the side effects for the chicken pills

These Jamaican pills are used to make your butt larger. ## I'm sorry, but from that nickname, description and generalization, I cannot tell you anything. In order to provide you with any information, you need to provide the actual name of the product or its ingredients. There are far too many other possibilities of what it could be that you are talking about. Do you know the name of them? ## I would like 2 purchase the chicken pills over the counter. Are there any side effects & do they really work?? ## Hey i was interested in the chicken pill that makes your butt bigger, but am just scared of the side effects, and does it really work? How do i take it?? ## I think they changed it and that this supplement only comes in a powder form now. Instead of chicken pills I think it might...

mosegor vita is for what

My father is diagnosed with spinal comoression fracture, the mass possibly metastasized from prostate cancer. His doctor prescribed mosegor for something like sleeping or pain relief.

The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, drowsiness, and weight gain. No, his dosage should not be changed, without the approval of his medical provider.

what are famynor tablets for

Hi, I've had abnormal/irregular periods since I started my periods. They've been on and off since day 1. I would go for months without any sign of bleeding or spotting. Three years back I would spot for weeks and after it would be a normal period; last year an unusual spotting started to come in a brown color. It went on for weeks as well. I then went to the nearest clinic n got famynor which stopped the spotting. In between the month of usage the spotting came back as periods and the famynor couldn't stop the bleeding, only to find a huge clot that came out and I thought my problem was solved. On that same week I went through my normal periods without any pain whatsoever but the bleeding was heavy at first n it just slowed as time went on. On the following month it was a us...
