My wife, 76 years old, mother of four children, complained of pain in her stomch similar to ulcer. She was examined by a Gastro entrologist, but was later diagnosed for cancer of the colon. Doctors said there is a tumour blocking food and wastes in the colon that caused the pain. After eight Chemotherapy sessions and “Xeloda” tablets in between periods she is now relieved of all pains. But the Onclogist is not sure if Tumour is shrunk or not. No further tesst are done for this since she refused to take more pains on tests. Can we give her Cyclopam100? We used to give Ultracet for pains but this created adverse reactions. So Started giving Talinol along with PAND and Ondem before food. Acidity and gas in stomach reduces appetite. Endice is being given to create appetite. Please advise if Cyclopam as pain killer can be given.

I am in hospital being treated for anal cancer. Last day of radiotherapy tomorrow. I have a flat polyp on the outside of my anus which first appeared about 6 months or so ago and grew very quickly but my oncologist says it s not part of the 5cm tumour inside. He said it might drop off but no sign of that yet. It s just annoys me and bleeds sometimes. Thanks
