Irina Skorogodaeva, a dermatologist and cosmetologist, said in a television interview that the human body with tumors begins to emit certain smells.
The specialist stated that the person with this serious disease suffers from excessive sweating, accompanied by an odor similar to the smell of rotten meat.
The specialist explained that the sick human body, during the fight against tumors, secretes tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα), also called cachectin or cachexin, which is a cellular signaling protein (cytokine) that participates in the inflammatory process in human body.
For oncological diseases, an increase in temperature remains characteristic, and this condition can persist for a long time. Therefore, we often smell ammonia in people with kidney or liver disease.
