Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.Very sorry to hear about your sister's problem.Once it has spread to liver and lungs,it can be assumed it has spread to other areas in the body also.That is the reason doctors are not doing any surgery as thought by you.Try other therapies like Ayurveda or homeopathy.God bless you and your sister.Good luck and thanks.

Hello there 6 years ago my mam was diagnoised with bowl cancer (a very rare tyre) she underwent surgery, then 2 years ago it came back and she underwent surgery again. The cancer has effected her lungs, liver, and has spread to her bones. She went into hospital a couple of days ago with exteme pain in her back, her yummy was swollen and the doctors are trying to get this down. There is not anything that can be done- in ways of surgery, medcation etc etc. I am wondering what her life expectancy would be

I was in hospital yesterday after becoming unwell. I had severe sickness and stomach pains. Having conducted a CT scan I have been informed they have found a shadow on my bowels and its a strong possibility that it is cancer. I show absolutely none of the signs of bowel cancer as described anyway, but am worried obviously. As I was severely constipated at the time of the CT scan I have read it maybe that which has caused the shadow,could you please help?

Hi, I have been suffering from ear discharge from more than 10 years. i had been to few doctors but they only gave some anti fungal ear drops. I stopped going to them since i was quite busy and the ear problem was not painful. A smelly sticky pus comes out of my ear. I get an itching sensastion and generally i roll a piece of paper and make it like pipe and clean my ears. I gives a wonderful feeling, but the pus coming out is very sticky, and smelly. earlier it used to stop but now its regular.. i also feel my right ear is heavy, and sometimes it feels like there are fluids filled in my ears and they make a peculiar sound as if they are being vortexed or swirling inside. I was 12 years when i started having this problem, now i am a grown up 24 years old.i had a tonsil problem during my childhood days, and i was given homeopathic medicines. I had a problem of bad breath also. Doctors said that it was due to tonsils. Now i don t get tonsils pain but bad breath is till there.
