I think I do.
I don't think you understand the science!
A fundamental difference in the behavior of normal versus tumor cells in culture (1–5) is that normal cells divide for a limited number of times (exhibit cellular senescence) whereas tumor cells usually have the ability to proliferate indefinitely (are immortal).
Not really. Cancer cells die at pretty much the same rate as normal cells.

The only part of that I understood was mono-atomic gold.
Anyway, I'm gonna talk about a medical issue I have right now which could be related to this topic.
One morning around six weeks ago, I suddenly felt like I had been shot in the pancreas with a microwave weapon. I went on to suffer considerable abdominal pain for around 36 hours, after which the pain mysteriously shifted to my lower back and lasted for another 36 hours. It was debilitating enough that I had a lot of trouble sleeping. I had absolutely no problem passing urine, everything appeared normal in that respect. However, the urine was of a cola colour due to the presence of blood and protein, which was confirmed by my doctor. A urinary tract infection was suspected and I was prescribed with trimethoprim, an antibiotic. I had two single doses on days two and three (so I took four of them in total). The problem substantially eased off on the fourth day. There has been no re-occurrence since and a recent urine sample was negative.
Four weeks ago I came down with a common cold and one week later I took a single trimethoprim. Since maybe one week after that I have been suffering with severe itchiness. It is now specific to the back of my neck, but at one point I was also scratching a lot just below my navel. My doctor told me that it's scabies and gave me some cream, which has helped but the problem persists. I had a bad cough throughout this time, although it has substantially eased this week.
The itching began the very next day after I had a friend stay overnight with me, which implies that they had an infection of sorts. In the case of first-time exposure to scabies, there are no apparent symptoms for some time, at least several weeks. The fact that I had symptoms within a matter of hours might imply that I have indeed been exposed to it at some point in my life. However, I have absolutely no recollection of having had a serious problem with itching so if there has been past exposure then I would have been very young.
Might it be that I have both infections and that scabies is thriving on candida yeast?

scabies? is there dots (like bites) with track marks between them? if no. then its not scabies.
is the itching burning? or just normal itchy, scratching is relief or painful?
