My sister is 43 years old and is currently under remission from Stage 2A ovarian cancer. I read online that ovarian cancer has one of the highest recurrence rates. Is it true? How should we help her maintain her health so that it doesn't recur?
Doctor, I often have recurring stomach ulcers. The last time I had an ulcer was last September, when I experience severe heartburn and stomach pain. I also vomited a lot due to the nausea. I am now experiencing it again and the medications don’t seem to work anymore. I’ve googled my symptoms and read that gastric cancer has similar symptoms. Is it possible that my ulcer has evolved to become cancerous? Why do I keep getting these stomach ulcers and is there anything I can do to prevent them from coming back?
I am a 65 year old male. My weight has been decreasing these two weeks since I lost my appetite. I feel full only after 2-3 spoonfuls of food. While I feel weak, I don’t feel any pain. I sometimes feel nauseous and will throw up. My biggest concern is that my father used to have gastric cancer. However, it was early stage and he went for surgery and was cured. Am I at risk of developing the same cancer? And do the symptoms I am having now point towards the possibility?
In April 2019, my grandfather was diagnosed with a gastric polyp. At that time, it was non-cancerous. Last week, he experienced similar symptoms and it appears his polyp has recurred. I’ve heard that if it recurs, then it may be cancerous. Am I over-worrying? Would you recommend another examination to check whether the polyp is cancerous?
Is specks of blood in the vomit and pain in the right side of the stomach signs of gastric cancer? What do we need to do? My father is 59 years old and he is showing these signs. Is a gastroscopy enough?
I am 67 years old and have been experiencing heartburn. When I eat, I get full only after a small portion of food and I have so far lost close to 10kg in 2 weeks. I have also taken medicine for reflux but there is no improvement. I am also experiencing constipation. Do all these sound like symptoms of cancer?
My grandfather is undergoing chemotherapy for his gastric cancer. However the chemotherapy drugs are causing gastric reflux symptoms for him. Is this a sign of his cancer getting worse?
What are the signs of gastric cancer? I have been living with gastric reflux for more than 8 years. Is there any possibility it’ll develop into cancer?
My mother in law is 74 years old. Currently, she cannot swallow anything without throwing up. We noticed there were blood spots in her vomit. She also complains about feeling pain in her abdomen. Are these signs of cancer?
I am still undergoing treatment for my peptic ulcer disease. It has been 3 years since I was diagnosed and the ulcer keeps recurring. What is the best examination or test to find out the root cause behind the ulcer? I am 50 years old and male. There is cancer history in my family but not stomach cancer. My uncle died from colon cancer at the age of 58.
