AbstractPurposeTo describe patterns of opioid use in cancer survivors.MethodsIn a cohort study of colon cancer patients diagnosed during 1995 –2014 and enrolled at two Kaiser Permanente regions, we constructed quarterly measures of opioid use from 1 year before cancer diagnosis through 5 years after diagnosis to examine changes in use. Measures included any use, incident use, regular use (use ≥ 45 days in a 91-day quarter), and average daily dose (converted to morphine milligram equivalent, MME). We also assessed temporal trends of opioid use.ResultsOf 2,039 colon cancer patients, 11 &...

ConclusionSacrospinous ligament suspension for the correction of massive vaginal vault prolapse utilizing PEEK anchors and porcine urinary bladder extracellular matrix is a reasonable alternative to transvaginal synthetic mesh repairs.Advantages to this vaginal approach include: 1) Avoidance of laparoscopic risks in a patient with massive ascites, 2) Avoidance of chronic pain, erosion and extrusion associated with synthetic mesh.

ConclusionsAlthough liver metastasis should be the first provisional diagnosis in patients with advanced colon cancer, retroperitoneal schwannoma should also be suspected in the differential diagnosis of possible liver lesions.

CONCLUSIONS: Adequate and improved pain control in patients with cancer, even in advanced stages, with concurrent quality of life maintenance is attainable. Results from this large-scale, multicenter, single-group cohort supplement existing RCT data that support IDDS as a safe and effective therapeutic option with a positive benefit-risk ratio in the treatment of cancer pain.

We report a case of disseminated abdominal tuberculosis developing 10 years after kidney transplantation and review the underlying literature. Patient concerns and diagnoses: A 51-year-old lady presented with epigastric pain, diarrhea, weight loss and night sweats 10 years after deceased-donor kidney transplantation. An epigastric as well as multiple peritoneal masses were found suspicious of a cancer of unknown primary. Colonoscopy revealed a colon tumor with the biopsy showing no dysplasia but histiocytic and granulomatous infiltration with acid-fast bacilli. Mycobacterium tuberculosis was detected in the biopsy and s...

It was a common enough reason for someone to have a CT scan. The order read, “Abdominal pain, colon cancer resected in January.” It was now March, only two months post-surgery. Yet the patient’s CT scan showed a number of large masses in the liver, consistent with metastatic cancer. I compared the current study to […]Find jobs at  Careers by KevinMD.com.  Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now.  Learn more.

lkanlı M, Vatansever S Abstract Opioids are widely used in the treatment of cancer related pain. They mainly exert their effects on opioid receptors. The most common opioid in the treatment of pain is morphine. Previous studies show that they may have effects on cancer cell behavior. These may include apoptosis, angiogenesis, invasion, inflammation and immune reactions. Tramadol, also an opioid is widely used in the treatment of cancer pain and is not well studied in cancer behavior. We aimed to investigate the effects of tramadol on cancer stem cells and metabolic changes in colon carcinoma cells. We used Colo32...

In conclusion, a case of synchronous existence of colon cancer, DLBCL, and MDS is reported, which suggests that careful attention should be paid clinically to checking the state of bone marrow for elderly cancer patients. Efforts are also needed to establish an effective system for distinguishing the origin of multi-existent cancers and to develop effective therapeutic regimens for multi-existent cancers with fewer side effects.

Publication date: Available online 24 July 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): David Peifer, Matthew Rohloff, Thomas MaatmanAbstractColorectal cancer is a very common disease process, as is ureteral obstruction, but the two are typically mutually exclusive. The case report presented details a 35-year-old male with left sided flank pain and hydroureteronephrosis caused by metastatic spread of previously diagnosed and treated sigmoid adenocarcinoma. About two years previously, he had been diagnosed with Stage IV, T4a sigmoid colon cancer with liver metastasis and had resection of his primary tumor as well as metastati...
