CONCLUSIONS: A patient with undiagnosed cancer may present with symptoms or no symptoms. Irregular bleeding must always be explained. Abdominal pain occurs with all types of abdominal cancer and several symptoms may signal colorectal cancer.

Authors: Yin Y, Yi Y, Yu J, Sun X, Liu C, Xu F Abstract The present study aimed to investigate the effects of flurbiprofen on serum level of interleukin-6 (IL-6), prostacyclin (PGI2) and corticosteroid A2 (TXA2) in patients with bone metastases of cancer. A total of 210 patients with bone metastasis of cancer were randomly divided into two groups: Flurbiprofen axetil analgesia group (group A) and dezocine analgesia group (group B), 105 cases in each group. The analgesic effect was evaluated using visual analogue scale (VAS) scoring system at 1, 12, 24 and 48 h after treatment. Serum levels of IL-6, PGI2 and TXA2 at...

Question: A 62-year-old female with Lynch syndrome had a CT scan performed after a fall, which incidentally discovered multiple polypoid lesions within the stomach. The patient had a history of endometrial adenocarcinoma at age 50, as well as a family history significant for a sister with colon cancer at age 59. Based on this cancer history she had recently undergone genetic testing which revealed a pathogenic PMS2 mutation, consistent with Lynch syndrome. The patient was asymptomatic from a gastrointestinal perspective without any nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, or unintentional weight loss.

A number of common herbal supplements, including green tea and Ginkgo biloba, can interact with prescription medications, according to a new research review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology. These interactions can make drugs less effective—and may even be dangerous or deadly. Doctors know that herbs can affect medication regimens, wrote the researchers, from the South African Medical Research Council, in their new paper. But because people often don’t disclose to their healthcare providers what over-the-counter drugs and supplements they’re taking, it’s difficult for scienti...
