What is the treatment of dengue
and what is the platelets?
what happened when we suffered from blood cancer?
Treatment of dengue consists of pain medications and fluids treatment includes fluids and pain relievers. Severe cases require hospital care. The platelets are the cells that circulate within our blood and bind together when they recognize damaged blood vessel. When you get a cut, for example, the platelets bind to the site of the damaged vessel, thereby causing a blood clot to stop us from bleeding.

Hi, my aunty is diagnose with blood cancer, her siblings not agree for chemotherapy they decided not to take chemotherapy, she came to our house, I want to know, can we stay with her like we stay with a normal person.

Blood cancer is not a contagious disease. You can stay with her. However as her immunity is suppressed, follow hand washing and barrier nursing.

I am from gujarat ,rajkot .my 44 years old mom had blood cancer aml m2 a year ago, and recently reports and doctors says that recurrence of the same aml m2 currently so we are really very stressed and confused that what can be done, we do not want to continue with the chemotherapy because even she is also not able to bear it anymore, can you suggest what can be done hoping for your reply thank you.

Hi lybrate-user, sorry to hear about your mom. At times like these, it is best to avoid chemotherapy if the patient is not willing. There are many other therapies available for her which are effective and also not so troublesome. I personally see a lot of cancer patients and my mode of treatment is integrated therapy where we use Homoeopathy and Mistle-toe therapy. If you are interested in considering these therapies, please reach out to me. To get an idea about the cost, you can see my package for cancer treatment on my profile on Lybrate. I can definitely suggest to you that these therapies will have practically no side effects and will help your mother to lead a good life. How much of the disease can be treated will depend on what stage it is on. For this I will require to see all her reports. However, we can at least make sure to give her a good quality of life without suffering from side effects of treatment and also try to control the disease if possible.

What is the causes of thick blood? Does thick blood is curable? And thick blood is only a sign of cancer? I am very worried about this. Tell me the answer please.

Thick blood is usually not a sign of blood cancer. Blood thickness if due to polycythemia vera ie raised hemoglobin is classified as myeloproliferative neoplasm. But the chances of it progressing to blood cancer is extremely rare especially if it is treated properly. Thick blood could be because of abnormalities in proteins of the coagulation system. Durability depends on the underlying cause.
