No. Dogs CANNOT contact feline aids. The only animal that can is another cat. Dogs CANNOT get feline leukemia either.
Yes, there is such a disease, and it's deadly. What do you want to know?
All cats should be vaccinated for it, and any cat who roams outside is quite at risk. When I get a new cat I have it tested for Feline Leukemia before I even bring it home because it can easily spread and I have a cat that cannot be vaccinated due to a bad reaction. Take this disease very seriously.
There is a very slight possibility that the FeLV vaccine could cause some harm to your cat. Of the rare side effects, the most common is a vaccine site reaction, where the site is warm to the touch, red and possibly itchy or irritating to your cat. The cat may also run a slight fever for a couple of days.
One of the least common side effects is the potential for a vaccine-associated sarcoma. This is a tumor of connective tissue that develops at the site of a vaccine and tends to be invasive and aggressive. However, this is extremely rare, and FeLV is much more common and untreatable.
Of course! Leukemia, a cancer of the blood, is very treatable especially in children but should not be considered benign or as something that might blow over. As with any disease, the longer it goes without treatment, the worse the conditions gets and the lower the chance of survival. However, after a couple rounds of chemotherapy, most people survive.
What about a range of 22.2-43.6% as a normal range for lymphocytes, and the number is 47.6%, would this be considered abnormally high?
Acutre leukocytosis is the sudden or short-term increase in white blood cells.
If the question is posed to ask if all people who have leukaemia die from it, the answer is no. There are treatments such as bone marrow transplants which allow sufferers to recover and lead normal lives.
No. Everyone does not die of leukemia. Some people die from other causes.
Acute leukemia is not always fatal. Many patients can recover with treatment and live a normal life. The survival rate depends a great deal on the sub-type, patient's age and general health, and other individual factors. See link below for more information.
Please let a medical professional see it. I went to a dermatologist who looked at a black or dark blue mark that was not circular, but shaped more or less like a piece of rice. That was not a common, normal mark.
They did a biopsy & results are not back yet, but said the spot I have potentially looks like a classic precancerous mark. I have only one spot like this, and it's not big. But it's different & not something to ignore.
Don't be alarmed, & don't let nonprofessionals attempt to diagnose your mark! See a real dermatologist who's professionally certified to know. Your personal physician likely does not have the right training and expertise. See someone who does for one visit - just to be safe & sure!
Fyi - My biopsies were TOTALLY PAIN FREE! Not what I expected... I was given a shot first to numb the area, had no sensation whatsoever of anything being removed. A tiny sample was all that was needed.
Now I'm comforted knowing if this proves to be bad, it's extremely in a early stage & easily treated. I learned a lot during my exam about what to look for, and likewise what is not of interest... Worth going once for a good appraisal & to learn what to be watching for...
Blue / black spots can mean different things. A properly trained professional can give you the right answer to this question (and even they may need to rely on test results to be certain!).
Call your city health department if you don't have insurance. They may know some way you can get a free screening...? One way or the other, have it checked - just to be safe...
Lupus patients often have thrombocytopenic anemia, either because the immune system attacks and destroys platelets or the immune system interferes with the manufacture of platelets in the bone marrow. Platelets are the part of the blood that cause the blood to clot. If the blood does not clot, people bleed.
Leukemia is a deadly disease because it can spread to other parts of the body if not treated quickly and could be fatal. It killed 265,000 people worldwide last 2012.
Yes, it is a symptom of leukemia.
Leprosy has been well documented in Bible historical accounts. Now a days it is rarely seen. in the related links box below I posted an site of the world helth organization that will let you know how easy it is treated today as opposed to the Biblical days when there was no cure for it.
You can be sure that leprosy could be among the oldest real bad deseases along human history.
No, but nick has type one diabetes. ohh well
Every four minutes, a person is diagnosed with blood cancer.
Every ten minutes, a person dies from blood cancer.
One third of blood cancer patients are children and teens.
Bone marrow cancer is defined as the cancerous growth of cell or malignant cells which develop in the blood forming cells of the bone marrow which is the soft tissue in the center of the bones in the body.
It is important to note that bone marrow cancer includes leukemias, multiple myeloma, and others.
Chronic and Acute. Chronic worsens slowly, acute worsens quickly. Chronic leukemias are Chronic Lymphoblasitc Leukemia andChronic Myeloid Leukemia. Acute leukemias are Acute Lymphoblastice Leukemia and Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
Our pediatrician first suspected our 4 year old daughter to have leukemia after she continued to have infected sinus colds with fever that would not clear up with antibiotics. He ordered an IGAM & E blood test that showed she did not have leukemia, but that she had allergies. However, in my case, I have experienced head colds and/or allergy symptoms for years and was just diagnosed with CML (Chronic Myleod Luekemia) last year (2006). The last time my blood count was normal was in 2001. I complained to my doctors for years that I ached all over, but they never addressed it. I just chalked it up to the aging process and when I needed relief I just took some OTC pain meds. Currently, my treatment consists of a daily oral medication called Gleevec. I have to had a bone marrow biospy done every year. I see an oncologist every six months to see how I'm doing and to check my blood counts; twice per year he likes to do a Philledelphia Chromozome blood test.
There is no current cure for Leukemia yet, but they are treatments.Chemo therapy, etc. If you diagnose the cancer early, you might be able to survive though. About 60/50/40 percent survive. Its usually a fifty fifty though.
There is a debate in the medical community whether any cancer can be so called "cured". However, it can most certainly be treated. Some cases to do not even need treatment to become well, but others will require some chemotherapy or other treatments.
I don't know about leukemia being mistaken for mono, but when my mom had mono, it was so severe that it was mistaken for leukemia.
is 13.1 a normal range for white blood count
The Leukemia foundation is an organization set up to research cures for Leukemia. They also provide care for families who have loved ones with the disease.
