BOWEL cancer symptoms include stomach pain, a change in bowel habits, and finding blood in your stool. You could reveal your risk of the cancer by checking your poo after using the toilet. Should a healthy poo sink or float?
We present a case of bladder cancer manifesting with insidious foot pain, caused by multiple lytic lesions located solely at the left foot. It was suspected after whole-body CT and later confirmed by biopsy result. We enumerate the differential diagnosis of distal extremity lytic lesions for educational purposes and review the literature listing similar published cases.
Authors: Ida T, Goto T, Motoi T, Nagai I, Matsubara S, Fujiwara H, Kohyama A Abstract A bone metastasis from uterine cervical cancer normally indicates short life expectancy. Resection of the lesion is therefore palliative. The authors consider herein whether surgical resection can promote disease control while improving quality of life. A 33-year-old woman -presenting FIGO Stage IB 1 uterine cervical squamous cell carcinoma underwent a radical hysterectomy and pelvic irradiation. Twenty-two-months later, a solitary femoral metastasis was detected. Given the pain, imminent bone fracture, the patient's relative yout...

CERVICAL cancer symptoms include unusual bleeding, back pain, and passing more stools than usual. But, you should never ignore constipation pain, as it could be a sign of a tumour.
Publication date: 1 July 2018 Source:Life Sciences, Volume 204 Author(s): Marek Toczek, Barbara Malinowska The endocannabinoid system is up-regulated in numerous pathophysiological states such as inflammatory, neurodegenerative, gastrointestinal, metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, pain, and cancer. It has been suggested that this phenomenon primarily serves an autoprotective role in inhibiting disease progression and/or diminishing signs and symptoms. Accordingly, enhancement of endogenous endocannabinoid tone by inhibition of endocannabinoid degradation represents a promising therapeutic approach for the treatment of...
Authors: Nguyen BC, Kim SA, Won SM, Park SK, Uto Y, Maruta H Abstract PAK1 (RAC/CDC42-activated kinase 1) is the major oncogenic/ageing kinase, and its dysfunction extends the healthy lifespan of C. elegans by activating HSP16 gene. 15K is a highly cell-permeable 1,2,3-triazolyl ester of ketorolac that down-regulates both PAK1 and its down-stream COX-2 in R- and S-forms, respectively. 15K is 500-5,000 times more potent than ketorolac, an old pain-killer, inhibiting the growth of cancer cell lines with IC50 ranging 5-24 nM. Scores of natural and synthetic PAK1-blockers have been shown to extend the lifespan of small...

Conclusions Approximately two-thirds of patients who undergo treatment with radium-223 will experience an improvement in pain and, if it occurs, it will most likely occur within the first two cycles. Patients should be counseled about this timeline and, if pain improvement isn't achieved, palliative radiation and oral analgesic readjustment should be considered. Pain response is not associated with survival and should not be used to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment.
