Spread Of Cancer?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
With a history of lung tumors and when this is declared clean, it is necessary to determine whether the lung tumor is benign or malignant. In general it is said that a tumor is an abnormal growth that can be benign or malignant (cancer). So if your parents are diagnosed with a lung tumor, it is important to know the nature of the tumor. If the diverted par tumor is a benign tumor, then it is confirmed that there is cancer in the spinal cord, possibly not from a benign tumor from the lung.
However, if a previously declared clean lung tumor is a gnas lung or lung cancer, then the risk of cancer spread to regional lymph nodes or to distant organs can occur and cause cancerous growth in related organs. In general, patients with lung cancer often experience recurring pain and recurrence in the spinal region, so this condition may be caused by the urgency of the cancer or due to the spread of cancer leading to the spine. Patients with the spread of cancer or metastases to other organs such as the spine can provide accompanying complaints such as:
1. Weakness of the hand area
2. Weakness of the leg area
3. Tingling or thick taste in the hands and or feet
4. Disorders of urination or urination
5. CHAPTER disorders
6. Blood cell disorders
7. Body weight decreases
Because the distribution of cancer in the early stages also does not provide typical symptoms, it is rarely felt the initial complaint of the spread of cancer, complaints that are felt can be felt after the cancer is getting wider or starting to affect the surrounding organ systems. Therefore, sometimes the accompanying complaints felt by the patient, make a difference in malignancy. In addition, complaints such as gastric disorders, the possibility of indeed being found for gastric or pancreatic disorders from the results of the examination, but because the accompanying complaints are not specific then the possibility of the spread of cancer or the presence of cancer of the spinal cord is not known until further examination. Symptoms of spinal cord cancer and complications to the nerves can be strengthened by complaints of not being able to sit or tingling. However, you still need to discuss all of this directly with the treating doctor, because after all who understands and knows the patient's condition is an oncologist. So that in general, the possibility of the emergence of cancer in other places can still occur even though it has previously been declared clean, either the primary part of the organ or because of the spread of old cancers.
While examinations carried out to detect the presence of cancer or the spread of cancer are MRI, bone scan, PEt scan, and biopsy to determine the spread and type of cancer. However, again, all of this needs to be ascertained directly by the oncology surgeon, both related to the spread of cancer, primary cancer, further examination, complications, treatment, and further treatment. This needs to be done to get more complete information from the doctor who treats your parents, because the doctor who is more aware of the patient's clinical condition.
