Many doctors, including oncologists, believe that to refer purely to the figure in the bark properly. Diagnosis is a multifaceted and very complicated process, and an increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate, indicates in most cases the intensity of the inflammatory process, albeit an important one, but only 1 part of the picture opening before your doctor.


5 facts with regard Oncology and ESR:

  • Increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate is normal. Often referred to as elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, an indicator which is different from the average data. But every man has his rate, directly depending on his age and sex, the presence of chronic or subtle diseases. The most difficult to identify "normal ESR parameter" in the fairer sex, as it largely depends on hormonal background, which is why during pregnancy, in a specific phase of the cycle, as well as 60-90 days immediately after childbirth, levels of ESR is increased;
  • ESR if cancer rises not always. In fact, any practicing oncologist can provide from the practice of the many examples of the patient having cancer an increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate completely normal;
  • Elevated levels of erythrocyte sedimentation rate - this is the reason to look for cancer in the… Increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate often occurs through the growth of the tumor in the pelvic organs, intestines, lymph nodes, breast;
  • In different laboratories ESR parameter can be different. For example, according to Panchenkov method of ESR 70 = 100 ESR by the Westergren Metho. Plus no need to write off chelovesky factor. ESR 120 may in fact be 20;
  • General analysis, whose composition includes ESR is a very important. Any observed in the dynamics index is an important tool for fast and accurate diagnosis. And maintaining a high level of ESR for a very long time in the treatment of antibacterial drugs show the need for more tchatelno search for the causes of poor health of the patient. Or a very rapid increase in sedimentation rate from the people the last anti-cancer therapy is also cause for immediate treatment to the doctor-oncologist.
