Bloody Saliva In People With Thyroid Cancer?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are sorry for your father's condition. Thyroid cancer is the development of abnormal tissue that occurs in glands located at the front of the neck. Normally, this gland functions to secrete hormones that regulate metabolism, growth, heart rate, body temperature, blood pressure, body weight and so on. Papillary thyroid cancer is the most common type of thyroid cancer, accounting for about 60 percent of all cases.
Metastase is a term for cancer that has spread, and the further it spreads, the more it is classified in the final stage of cancer. When cancer cells have spread, they will cause symptoms at the site of the spread. If it spreads to the eye area, it will interfere with vision, when it reaches the bone it will cause pain or difficulty moving, and so on.
In your father's case, when a terminal cancer patient experiences bleeding, which is found in saliva, this can be caused by several possibilities, namely cancer cells that damage blood vessels, abnormalities in platelet or platelet function, liver damage or clotting disorders. other blood caused by cancer cells. Dealing with this problem is not simple because in-depth examination is needed to determine the origin of the problem, and the treatment will depend on the results of the examination.
So that indeed the way to deal with the bleeding is to go back to the doctor. If for one reason or another, your father finds it difficult to check with the nearest cancer specialist / oncologist, at least check with a general practitioner to be given anti-bleeding drugs in the form of oral medicines. Meanwhile, continue to support and pray for your father, and keep his spirits up. So, hopefully it answers your question.
