Is Queen Elizabeth II afflicted with cancer?
During a recent meeting with Prime Minister Liz Truss, Queen Elizabeth II rekindled concerns about her health. Royal fans became concerned about what appeared to be the Queen’s worrying health condition due to her bruised hands.
Although it could be due to her advanced age, an expert revealed that it could also be a sign of cancer, specifically leukemia.
Dr. Gabriel Mirkin, a longevity expert with degrees from Harvard and Baylor University College of Medicine, recently told The National Enquirer that her blue hands could be a sign of leukemia.
“In an elderly woman like her, bruising that’s not the result of trauma points to the loss of clotting component and indicates a blood cancer, like leukemia or lymphoma. Leukemia kills because it leaves you defenseless against germs and cancer cells.”
According to Dr. Mirkin, the disease also causes a person’s body to produce fewer red blood cells, leaving them anemic. Clotting and heart failure are also possible outcomes.
The concerns began when the New York Post and other news outlets published photos of the 96-year-hand old’s while shaking hands with Truss.
Some royal observers even claimed that Prince Philip had it before his death.
It wasn’t the first time she’d been seen with strange blue hands. In November, fans noticed it when Queen Elizabeth II hosted the Chief of the Defense Staff, General Sir Nick Carter, at Windsor Castle.
Dr. Jay Verma of Shakespeare Medical Center told Metro that the monarch could be suffering from cold hands or Raynaud’s phenomenon. The disease occurs when the fingers or hands turn different colors due to cold or stress, according to the American College of Rheumatology.
She speculated that purple skin could be caused by deoxygenated blood.
According to Buoy Health, Raynaud’s phenomenon is one of the six most common causes of blue hands. Pulmonary embolism, pneumonia, COPD, congestive heart failure, and peripheral artery disease are other causes.
However, the cancer scare should be taken with a grain of salt because no official announcement has been made. It is worth noting, however, that her father, George VI, died of a different type of cancer.
The late King died of coronary thrombosis in 1952. He also had lung cancer, arteriosclerosis, and Buerger’s disease.
