    Default Daily Aspirin May Help Prevent and Treat Cancer

    “What really jumps out at you in terms of prevention is the striking 75 percent reduction in esophageal cancer and a 40 to 50 percent reduction in colorectal cancer, which is the most common cancer right now,” Dr. Rothwell said. “In terms of prevention, anyone with a family history would be sensible to take aspirin,” he added.

    glad things are going well since the diagnosis

    ....a new study will probably find that baby aspirin only prevents cancer in babies


    these studies are strange, you never know what to believe

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    I'm glad to hear you're doing OK.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but I thought the baby aspirin was to prevent heart attacks. Was it marketed as a way to lower cancer risk?

    Check with your doctor.

    Within the last several years, I've had multiple doctors tell me that if people are going to do an aspirin a day, it should be a 325 mg dose, not the 81 mg dose.

    Its a crap game but my point is the baby asprin for years has been touted as a preventor of heart attacks and now they say its a cancer preventor for certain cancers. No one knows for sure. Read Suzanne Somers book on cancer and you will realize everything you have done in your normal everyday life seems to cause it from filling your gas tank to cleaning your toliet. I know shes a bit of a wacko but cancer rates are not going down its the opposite. All I can say is try to minimize risks and get tested for any kind of cancer thats detectable and treatable. So now EVH and I have something in common lol.Thanks for kind thoughts. Stay Frosty.

    Right. There are several other risk factors (diet, exposure to chemicals, asbestos, etc.). The study found the aspirin reduced risk in cancers in the colon, lung and prostate by 46%, and other cancers, such as those in the bladder and kidney, by 18%. So based on this research, in your case (kidney cancer) you had an 82% chance of developing kidney cancer. Still pretty high.
