query - When my baby (now 5 months) was 3 weeks old he was held for about 15 minutes by my son right after chem (about 2 hours after). My husband was supposed to watch him while I was at the store. This never happened again and I sent him to the lake house after that for at least 72 hours after each treatment. He was only actually here within the 72 hour period on 2 days during the 6 treatments (for non-Hodgkin lymphoma). I was worried about chemo exposure for my 9, 6 and baby plus I am breastfeeding. Anyway now I am concerned that the baby could have absorbed chem into his skin from my sons sweat is that possible? Is it possible he is at greater risk of leukemia now? Also now that my sons back at home full time is his furniture safe? Could his sweat have contaminated the sofa in his room? He was not sick at all and used a separate bathroom when he was here. Also he finished his last treatment over 2 weeks ago. Is it COMPLETELY out of his system? Is it safe for him to hold the baby? Thanks for your time?
 
Her2+ - I am 47 years old have been diagnosed with breast cancer in March.DCIS 9 cm,4cm was found in right breast.With invasive 2.9 mm. I decided to have a double mastectomy as 4 of my aunts and 2 cousins was also diagnosed with breast cancer from my fathers side. I am ER-, PR-,HER2+. Grade 3. No LN .My oncologist don't think I need any treatment because the invasive part was only 2.9mm. I just feel I need a second opinion.

Hpv and anal cancer - hpv and anal cancer Dear Dr. Please i need an urgent medical consultation regarding the following case. Appreciate your feedback as i really need help and i cant find solid answers to my question here in my country as I am in developed country where medical issues are still far away from best practices. I am a 36 years old year man. I am divorced since 2 years and have 2 children. After my divorce I had some casual sex in some occasions all with women in a straight manner and with condoms except that I knew a new girl friend since a year ago. We started our sex life since 9 months which was on and off, like 2-3 times per month not on a regular basis as we didn't share the same place. But as she was virgin 33 yrs old women I didn't want to break her virginity, so unfortunately we were practicing anal sex. She is now diagnosed as having anal cancer. And knowing that the main reason of this kind of cancer is hpv transmission through anal sex I have three related questions: 1- Does what we did is surely and definitely the cause of her anal cancer? I struggled on Internet and with local drs, some are saying that it needs at least two years that the HPV infection can build the cancer cells in this area and the normal is 10-20 yrs, so can the cancer cells only be built on these 9 months time?! 2- If as I said, we did anal sex for only 9 months and hpv "cannot" be the reason of her anal cancer because the life cycle of hpv to be processed to cancer "must" take at least several years, the question is: can anal sex by itself without hpv infection can be a reason of anal cancer for any other reason rather than hpv infection taking into consideration again the shirt duration of the 9 months? 3- What is the opportunity that me too can have an anus/pinus cancer or any other kind of cancers because my girlfriend had it already if the cause was an hpv transmission from myself? Does this increase my risks? Is there any available analysis that I can do related to pinus hpv infection or penis cancer? 4- knowing that there is no analysis to show the hpv that I have or it's type from the hundreds of kinds of hpvs, shouldn't I have sex again ever with any new partner forever in my whole life even in a normal straight sex? If me is the reason for my girl friend to get her anal cancer can I be a source for others for cervical cancer which is more related to hpv infections? Please i don't want to transmit any harmful thing to anyone again. So do I have to stop my sex life forever? I don't have any kind of symptoms around or on my penus or anus (warts) , but my info that the dangerous kinds of hpvs that cause cancer doesn't have any symptoms except when me or my partner get the cancer?! My latest STDs analysis showed negative for all of the following: HIV 1 & 2, HCV antibody 3rd generation and VDRL. To summarize my 3 questions again: 1- am I the definite cause of my girlfriend having her anal cancer through hpv infection? 2- if not, can anal cancer be caused by just anal sex without hpv infection? 3- what is the opportunity that in near/medium/long future term I may have any kind of similar cancer or a pinus cancer if I have an hpv that caused this cancer to my girlfriend? Is there any analysis or can I be early diagnosed wether from the hpv or the pinus/anus cancer? 4- can I have sex again on my life or this be impossible and should I consider my sex life is ended forever as this will be dangerous to my future partner and may cause her cancer? Thank you for listening and I will be waiting for an answer to these questions which I hope i can find an answer! thank you very much Kind regards
 
Painful and swollen lymph nodes for 4 months - Hello, Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. I am a 38 year old male and I've had painful lymph nodes in my neck. The pain has been intermittent now for well over a year; however, the past 4 months, the pain has become non-stop and has occurred in my neck, groin, armpits, jaw, and ear area. I've had no obvious signs of infection. Tested negative for HIV, Lyme, and some other viruses. I do have lower back, hip, and testicle pain, but that has been occurring for over 3 years now. My ENT finally decided to do an ultrasound and MRI. The results are below. The ENT says no biopsy is needed but that I should pursue treatment for the neural foraminal narrowing in my neck as he thinks that is where the neck pain is coming from. I'm not a doctor but the pain is definitely in my lymph system (neck glands, armpits, etc). The Ultrasound and MRI are below. Do you think I need a biopsy? I'm still in pain everyday. ULTRASOUND: ECHNIQUE: Bilateral neck sonogram was obtained. FINDINGS: Patient complains of palpable submandibular adenopathy. Palpable nodule in the right submandibular area corresponds to a mildly enlarged lymph node measuring 3.4 cm in length and 6 mm in AP diameter. Palpable nodule in the left submandibular region corresponds to a mildly enlarged lymph node measuring 2.5 cm in length and 9 mm in AP diameter. A few additional normal size lymph nodes are present in the mid and lower neck. Lymph nodes appear benign with central fatty hilum and no eccentric nodularity. Impression IMPRESSION: Benign bilateral neck adenopathy, probably reactive. MRI:CLINICAL HISTORY: Neck pain and cervical lymphadenopathy. TECHNIQUE: PULSE SEQUENCES: Sagittal T1, sagittal T2, coronal T2, axial T1, axial T2, axial proton density. The examination was performed without contrast. COMPARISON: No prior studies available. FINDINGS: Enlarged bilateral level II lymph nodes measuring up to 1.2 cm short axis are present. However, These lymph nodes demonstrate benign reniform configuration with the left node demonstrating a fatty hilum. Prominent up to 8mm bilateral level Ib lymph nodes demonstrate prominent fatty hilum. Additional scattered smaller lymph nodes are present within the bilateral level II, III, IV and level V nodal stations. No solid or cystic neck mass is noted. The salivary and the thyroid glands are normal in appearance. Impression IMPRESSION: Enlarged bilateral level Ib and level II lymph nodes some of demonstrate fatty hila with reniform configuration are probably reactive. Mild anterior subluxation of the cervical spine at C2-C3, C3-C4 and C4-C5 with up to moderate right C3-C4 neural foraminal narrowing.
