Neuro Brain Tumor Common in HIV patients!

A 45-year-old right-handed man who has been HIV positive for the past 3 years has noticed some sort of visual change over the past 1 to 2 months. It is difficult for him to describe, but it is some sort of distortion of part of his right visual field. There is a 4-cm rim-enhancing lesion in the left occipital lobe that is revealed by MRI. Which of the following tumor types is common in the brain of patients with AIDS, but otherwise extremely rare?
A) Lymphocytic leukemia
B) Metastatic lymphoma
C) Primary lymphoma
D) Kaposi's sarcoma
E) Lymphosarcoma

Smile Primary lymphoma: The most common brain tumor in HIV

HIV/AIDS-related Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is the second most common cancer associated with HIV/AIDS, after Kaposi's sarcoma. There are many different subtypes of NHL. The most common subtypes of NHL in people with HIV/AIDS are primary central nervous system lymphoma (affecting the brain and spinal fluid), found in 20% of all NHL cases in people with HIV/AIDS, primary effusion lymphoma (causing fluid to accumulate around the lungs or in the abdomen), or intermediate and high-grade lymphoma. More than 80% of lymphomas in people with HIV/AIDS are high-grade B-cell lymphoma, while 10% to 15% of lymphomas among people with cancer who do not have HIV/AIDS are of this type. It is estimated that between 4% and 10% of people with HIV/AIDS develop NHL.

Default tumor defeated

Good afternoon! My name is Eugene. The last 8 years, I have been studying the techniques and methods of treatment of benign and malignant tumors and other diseases during this time I achieved very significant results in the treatment of these diseases. For the treatment uses natural ingredients that have a tremendous result, it does not have any side effects or contraindications, except for the following three: pregnancy, children under 3 years of age and idiosyncrasy.
I want to invite your company to consider buying the drug composition which has the following characteristics in treating a number of diseases:
1. Absorbable and heals benign tumors of any location and type (cysts, adenomas, polyps, papillomas, uterine fibroids, fibro adenoma and other);
2. Absorbable and cures the malignant tumors of any origin, location and at any stage including the stage IV (sarcoma, melanoma, leukemia, carcinoma, and others);
3. Inhibition of proliferation of cancer cells from 95 to 100%, complete inhibition of metastasis of malignant tumors, the disease does not allow back;
4. When the annual reception of the drug as a preventive measure, the risk of developing cancer is zero, protects cells from malignancy;
5. Treatment of various diseases (hepatitis C and B, cytomegalovirus, herpes, tuberculosis, psoriasis, gout, cirrhosis, atherosclerosis, gastritis, gastric ulcer, pancreatitis, cholecystitis, latent infections, and many others);
6. The drug is a powerful immune stimulant (suppresses the HIV virus), activates the immune system, produces the antibiotic effect has anticancer and antiviral activity;
7. Quickly displays "bad" cholesterol and toxins from the body;
8. cures infertility and impotence;
9. Slows the aging process, increases the length and quality of life.
Above is far from a complete list of diseases, that heals the medicine, more research is needed. During my studies and research I was approached by over 300 people with different diagnoses, all that I have mentioned, it is diagnosed that won my medicine.
The composition of the drug is represented by two compositions to be taken in a certain sequence. Composition №1 includes 15 components, the composition №2 - 4 components.
Unfortunately conduct full investigation I have no way, no special equipment and tools to get a better quality raw materials. Your company has to do everything necessary, and in consequence of this increase and the quality of treatment.
I also hope that the drug will spread and help a huge number of people, because of its low cost and effectiveness in the treatment is quite high.
If you are interested, please reply to my message!

Yours sincerely,
Eugene
