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.&...

Shortness of breath using Efudex

After applying Efudex to the scalp after a shower I experienced shortness of breath at about 3.00am in the morning. This is not recommended - I should apply it mid to late afternoon. I have had no further effects since doing this. Has anyone else experienced this? My doctor said I may be allergic to Efudex. I hope not. ## Hello Ern, Your doctor is absolutely right, nowhere on the efudex website or the NIH/FDA warnings does it say that shortness of breath is a common effect of administering this medication. It sounds very much like you are allergic to this medication and I strongly suggest that you have your doctor run some tests to verify if you are safe to administer this medication. It would be tragic to have your throat completely close up because you were administering this medicati...

Efudex on scalp - side effects on hair?

Has anyone used Efudex on their head? I'm interested in any side effects on hair deterioration or loss. ## Hello Hoody, Reportedly this will be determined by the amount of efudex that you need to apply. If applied topically then the medicine will not be absorbed into the bloodstream and thus will not cause hair loss like other forms of chemotherapy treatment. If it is necessary to apply enough cream that it will absorb into the blood stream then you will start to experience typical symptoms associated with chemotherapy such as nasuea, vomiting, hair loss etc. Below is a link to the source of my information. [1] Efudex Treatment I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you would like to know anything else regarding this medication. ## Thanks so much Kevin. Will be a 14 light...

And can it be used for vaginal itch or vaginal yeast infection.

cancer treatment - what is h86 & where can i get it

Why is hsi giving people the idea that it is a mircle drug, when it cures nothing? All that i see is that it does makes u fat and builds muscle. ## I have Breast and Brain cancer and I would like to know where you get H86? ## From what I've researched, HSI is a scam company. The coined term 'H86' is part of their marketing scheme. However, what it stands for (aka Avemar/Fermented Wheat Germ Extract) is apparently legitimate in that Fermented Wheat Germ has been proven to fight cancer; rather effectively at that: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20155632 The notion that all it does is make you fat and builds muscle is a misinformed representation from lack of research. For anyone who may be seeking Avemar, I'd recommend that you google it for a list of vendors. Something else wort...

Megestrol acetate side effects

My doctor started me on 400mg of megestrol to gain weight. Because of how quickly I gained, it was reduced to 80mg two months later. Could that change in dosage be the cause of clitoral atrophy? ## Hello Jessa, According to the National Institute of Health and their warnings associated with megestrol acetate I don't any warnings or adverse reaction listings that states this medicine causes clitoral atrophy, however, it does list decreased libido as a common side effect. My understanding is that clitoral atrophy is the decreased size and feeling of the clitoris which could be the result of hormonal imbalance and or restricted blood flow. Due to the fact that the megestrol is a synthetic hormone based drug it is possible that despite not being listed as a common side effect it could p...

How long does one keep using efudex 40 on spots/sores

I have been using Efudex on spots on chest, arms and legs for 2 months now. Most spots have blistered and turned into weeping sores, some have crusted up and turned into scabs. They are all extremely itchy, the itching drives me crazy when I’ve got these sores arms, chest, legs. Around Some sores that have scabbed over further red spots/lumps have come up surrounding the original sore, like it is spreading.
