Aspirin, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug has shown some relation with the advancement of the colon cancer patients. A recent study has suggested that patients who were diagnosed with colon cancer and were on aspirin recently has shown less advanced tumors during diagnosis compared to those who were not on aspirin.
The researchers have also revealed that there is also considerable evidence that aspirin to some extent has inverse relation to lung cancer as well.
But it should be noted that researchers has also advised that it doesn’t mean that everyone who are diagnosed with cancer or at risk of diagnosis should be taking aspirin.
It has been reported in the past and it is among the serious side effects of aspirin overdose that regular and heavy usage of aspirin can result in gastro-intestinal bleeding which can result in serious complications, including death.
However, the researchers has also agreed that there is no proven or exact mechanism known for the relation of aspirin and cancer and further research to understand the relation is needed.
It can also be said that it needs lot of time to apply these studies into real life treatments. In the past there were also reports that some viruses also shrunk tumors particularly the tumors of Liver. However only time will tell how applicable the aspirin study related to cancer could prove beneficial.
