Steve Jobs' cancer may have recurred, doctors say

http://eetimes.com/news/latest/showA...leID=212901026

SAN FRANCISCO—Pancreatic cancer experts say they are puzzled by what is
ailing Apple Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs, because it is not clear
how serious his health problems are or how directly they relate to his
bout with cancer.

Last week, Jobs said he had an easily treatable "hormonal imbalance"
that was robbing his body of the proteins it needs. Then, on Wednesday
(Jan. 14), the 53-year-old CEO said his problems were "more complex"
than originally thought, and he would take a medical leave of absence
for six months.

Doctors who have not treated Jobs say they can only speculate without
hard information, but they said the tumor he was treated for in 2004
could have spread to another organ or resurfaced in the pancreas,
requiring surgery or other treatment.

Jobs could also be coping with side effects of that surgery that can be
treated easily, they said.

In 2004, Jobs was treated for a rare type of pancreatic cancer called an
islet-cell, or neuroendocrine, tumor. Such tumors can be benign or
malignant, but they usually grow slowly and are far less deadly than
most pancreatic tumors.

The American Cancer Society estimates that 37,680 Americans get
pancreatic cancer each year, but few get islet-cell tumors of the kind
Jobs had. The tumors are easily removed surgically but recur in roughly
half of patients, said Dr. Roderich Schwarz, a cancer surgeon at the
University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

Dr. Clay Semenkovich, an endocrinologist at Washington University in St.
Louis, said in a telephone interview, "(Jobs) may have a new mass that's
substantially altering his physiology and causing him to lose weight."

One of the last of the true computer pioneers. Who along with Woz, created the
apple 1 (*not* II) in a garage. Literally. I still have a magazine with an
ad for it. There's even a picture of the inside of said garage around.

Rather strange thing to have an annual award for.

Why's that, idiot? Do you even know what a pioneer is?

It often takes DECADES for someone to become a pioneer.

You are one of the biggest idiots I've seen.

indeed, i often wonder if we as consumers, would even have a personal
computer if not for the foresight of Steve Jobs.
Would hobbyists still be choosing from limited options like building
their own machines from scratch, or mail- order to Heathkit?
What if Steve had been discouraged after trying unsuccessfully to sell
his idea to IBM (who thought at the time- until 1984, there was no
market for the PC), and went back to school instead of continuing on his
own with his vision....his latest companies NeXT and Pixar would never
have existed at all!
imagine, too, what if Steve had never hired Bill Gates to write software
apps. for Apple....would Bill still have bought DOS; where would he get
his inspiration for Windows- and where could he "borrow" code from, for
his failed Windows 95?
If we had personal computers today even despite Jobs, how would they
look, and operate?
Where would Dell, google, yahoo! and other now- famous companies and
their founders, be?

You have a newsreader that (sort of) supports killfiling. Wouldn't it be
far more dignified to killfile him rather than posting diatribes like this
one? And, you'd remove a source of irritation from your life.

This is common knowledge.

The problem is chucktard provides incorrect - and often DANGEROUS
information. If a newbie were to follow his advise, it can be
dangerous. So others need to warn people when his information is
incorrect - ala ALL THE TIME.
