    There is a lot of information on Google- both good and bad, and that can be misinterpreted. The sooner you get to a real doctor who is looking at your particular issues, the better you will feel for knowing the truth. It may be that you have hemorrhoids and not cancer, and it may be that you are worrying yourself into an ulcer.

    If you have GI cancers in your immediate family, you should be having regularly scheduled colonoscopies. Talk to your doctor about that, as well. For now, give yourself the day off, go have a warm bath or something comforting, and resolve to get in touch with your doctor in the morning. And STOP reading up on what you think you have, until you know.

  • How affective is chicken soup at curing colds?

And you'll be getting calories in your body to help your immune system fight the virus. Most colds last a week or two, so that you've been sick for a few days is not a big deal. If your cough continues for more than a few days, it's not a bad idea to see a doctor.

    Vitamin K is administered in the case of warfarin poisoning; but if it's bad, they will give a transfusion of blood plasma or prothrombin complex.
