Yesterday I ask my pharmacy to print me a copy of all the medicine i have taken and he is kind enough to print me from 2005 to present 2011. I have seen that I have been on lisinopryl since or maybe as early as 2005 to 2009. On 2008 I have been diagnose with Uterus cancer so i have an extensive Hysterectomy. By the way all symptoms that I have at the time I am taking lisinopryl is the pain on my hips which I cannot walk much and sit much and stand much. I have always infections which wont go away. after the hysterectomy, the hips pains go away and the infections go away too. After that I change Doctor and he gave me a different HB pills. Now one week ago I started feeling the pain again after the Doctor change my medication So I started digging on what mediation I am taking that resulted of me having a cancer on the uterus and this lisinopryl is the culprit. lisinopryl. at that time I am also taking Atenolol 100 mg.

i have breast cancer and i was not feel well so went to doctor and they put me no penicillin vk are they shue it all right to take them
Emm on Apr, 9, 2013:
It is highly unlikely that Lisinopril caused your cancer. You say you also take Atenolol. Both of these medications affect potassium levels in the blood. Altered potassium can cause muscle pain and cramping. The cancer also causes pain. If you are in remission make an appt ASAP. I pray for your recovery. Drink plenty of fluids, eat a mostly raw diet, and do all you can to stay well. Good luck.
