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 ...

H86 cancer cure

After a bit of drilling down and reading I think I have found out what H-86 really is... ## There are actually a few other discussion threads on this same topic that talk about H86 and how it works as a cancer treatment. However, I'm not sure if everyone is on the same page as far as what it really is. You can view each thread by visiting the links below: Discuss/h86-cancer-treatment-252777.htm Discuss/h-86-cancer-cure-250866.htm Discuss/h-86-cancer-cures-252713.htm By the way, have you also looked into CBD's from cannabis as a viable cure for cancer?

I hope this helps! ## This Product is called AVE...

doctors who will prescribe pain medication nj

I was in a car accident and had a head injury and my migraines started. They have been on and off all my life and started up again when I get cancer and was given chemo with facial in it. My migraines started up again and were so severe I was going to stop all chemo. They thought I was going to die and assigned me a palliative care pain management doctor.

Im in monmouth county, nj if anyone knows a Dr that still prescribes it. I have tried hundred of pain killers and nothing else works. Please help me {edited for privacy} ## Hello, Nova! How are you?

lot number look up

Please look up a medication by lot number TMSA15268-A ## LOOKING FOR A MEDICATION WITH LOT # PRO3150. I THINK IT IS DOCETAXEL. ## At this time I don't think there is any way to look up medication via their lot number. For example, Lot # PRO3150 comes up as a Motorola headset/earpiece accessory which is completely unrelated. Lot # TMSA15268-A also yields nothing. Perhaps an easier approach may be to search for Docetaxel (the medication in question) and see if you recognize the specific tablet by imprint or description? Medications can even be searched by their NDC if you happen to have that information on hand. MedsChat has a National Drug Code Database that can be accessed from the home page. Does anyone else have thoughts or suggestions to add? ## Looking for lot 051670. It is half...

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....

raised alt methotrexate

I have been on methotrexate for about 8 weeks, 15 mg weekly to treat PA. Just had call from hospital to say my latest blood work has come back with Alt raised from .56 in the last test to 109 on latest test. Do I need to worry? ## Hello, Matty! How are you? There is a chance that it's raised due to liver damage, but more evaluating would be required to know for sure. The FDA lists the other side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry cough and headache. Is there anything else I can help with? ## What is a plantar fibroma? I have a lump on the top of the arch in my foot that is very painful. Sometimes feels like fire in my foot. When I get up can barely walk for the pain. But after a few minutes the pain will ease. Saw a foot doctor a few years ago fo...

Where can Jakafi be bought

does anybody have an idea how can Jakafi be bought outside the united states? what is the price? ## I got Jakafi through my doctor for the treatment of myelofibrosis. We had to fill out an application for it from the pharmacuetical company, "Incyte". It has not been made available to local pharmacies, only through the way I just described. ## That is correct, it is currently still in the investigational stage, so it hasn't actually been approved and isn't publicly available anywhere, which also means that there is no price to give anyone. You can learn more about it here: Are there any other questions or comments? ## I am in Indonesia at the moment, and my dad's doctor recommended him to try JAKAFI. But it is only still available in US. My dad is feeling horrible at ...
