165 Possible Causes for Diplopia, Risk of Cancer Possibly Increased

  • Alcohol Abuse

    Adverse effects include dizziness and somnolence (which are not dose related), ataxia, impaired concentration, confusion, fatigue, paresthesias, speech difficulties, diplopia[aafp.org] But it is not clear whether alcohol use after treatment might increase the risk of these cancers coming back (recurring).[cancer.org] None Consider interactions withother anticonvulsant drugs. 53 Dizziness, somnolence, ataxia, impaired concentration, confusion, fatigue, paresthesias, speech difficulties, diplopia[aafp.org]

  • Hypertension

    In order to side with caution, patients should be advised to drink as little as possible for many reasons, including increased risk of cancer and injury, to name a few, 15[doi.org] On the one side, low‐level drinking has been associated with less risk for ischemic heart disease 69 ; on the other side, the risk for hypertension seems increased, at least[doi.org]

  • Stroke

    The symptoms improved after forced diuresis, but 5.5 h later progression was observed, and the patient developed diplopia and dysphagia in addition to her initial symptoms[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] reflecting increased risks of therapy for blood-pressure reduction or reverse causation due to conditions that may be associated with blood-pressure reduction (such as cancer[doi.org] He developed headache, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, diplopia, dizziness, and ataxia following the procedure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma

    Orbital invasion can cause diplopia, proptosis, and ophthalmoplegia. Any limitation in ocular movements and/or diplopia should be tested.[emedicine.medscape.com] UV radiation can cause damage to the DNA in skin cells, leading to mutations during cell division and possibly resulting in skin cancer.[medicalnewstoday.com] Arsenic exposure also increases the risk of cutaneous SCC.[ 1 ] Serologic evidence from a population-based case-control study has shown a possible association between infection[web.archive.org]

  • Skin Cancer

    Arsenic exposure also increases the risk of cutaneous SCC.[ 1 ] Serologic evidence from a population-based case-control study has shown a possible association between infection[web.archive.org] Organ transplant recipients receiving immunosuppressive drugs are at an elevated risk of skin cancers, particularly SCC.[web.archive.org]

  • Meningioma

    A 33-year-old female patient presented with diplopia and left eye ptosis 26 weeks into her first pregnancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] for Research on Cancer at WHO based on an increased risk for childhood leukemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 54-year-old woman presented to an outside hospital with a severe, sudden onset headache along with new-onset horizontal diplopia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    A 77-year-old Japanese woman presented to an ophthalmologist with an erythematous swollen upper eyelid and diplopia which was initially diagnosed to be idiopathic dacryoadenitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is possible that the combination of TNF-α inhibitors and cyclophosphamide increases the risk of cancer beyond that observed with cyclophosphamide alone.[doi.org] In the following 2 months, he gradually developed hoarseness and diplopia at the left and lower fields of vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Astrocytoma of the Brain

    Double vision (diplopia) is the most common presenting symptom for these tumors. Symptoms are usually present for 6 months or less at time of diagnosis.[roryd.org] This may increase the risk of the cancer coming back. In some areas of the brain it is not possible to operate at all.[cancerresearchuk.org] Sometimes the tumour may be in an area where it is not possible to remove it all with a safety margin of healthy tissue around it.[cancerresearchuk.org]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    The patient presented with progressive decrease of visual acuity, intermittent diplopia, paresthesia of the left arm and equilibrium disturbances.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in lymphocyte numbers, which increases the risk of infection and possibly of cancer.[ema.europa.eu] […] separated in time and space Symptoms symptoms of disease are based on the systems involved psych fatigue, depression, mood disorders central nervous system optic neuritis, diplopia[orthobullets.com]

  • Glioblastoma Multiforme

    Case 2: Meningeal involvement A 31-year-old man presented with seizures and subsequent diplopia.[sajr.org.za] As with all cancers, assessing possible risk factors remains a major focus of disease prevention.[lakeforest.edu] […] o Headache, especially retroorbital; sometimes worse upon awakening, improves during the day o Vomiting (with or without nausea) o Visual changes (blurring, blind spots, diplopia[physio-pedia.com]
