How is heredity, malnutrition, neoplasm, and infection linked with heart disease?
Hereditary is proved to have links with your chances of getting heart disease. Fortunately there are measures which can be taken to stave the development of it. Good diet, exercise, weight maintainance, keeping cholesterol levels down (diet and drugs if need be).
Infection can cause damage to the structures of the heart eg Rheumatic fever can damage the valves, or inflammation of the muscle or layers of the heart.
As far as Im aware neoplasm isnt linked; (+ info
Appendiceal Cancer or not what could be wrong with my Husband I am tired of searching for answers?
My husband has been sick for a little over a year. It started with pain on the right side which appearedd to be acute appendicitis, but further test were needed. Months later we have another CT scan and it comes back with enlarged lymph nodes that we will watch for over a year. Lymph nodes in abdomen do not grow over 2cm. Night sweats and Fevers continue to get worse throughout the year. 6ct scans and finally we have a biopsy that comes back with reactive lymph nodes. PET scan says no for lymphoma, but yet another CT scan says yes for acute appendicitis. Doctor at OHSU is sending us to meet with yet another surgeon for a rare something of the appendix, but does not fill me in. What is going on?
Just a bit of info for all your post..The appendix has not been the main concern the lymph nodes and fevers have. We know that it is not lymphoma from the biopsy and PET scan. Our Primary care doc was just watching the lymph nodes and after a year he is no longer our doctor. This is only the second time we have heard of the appendix being enlarged. We also do not live in India we are from Oregon and are working with OHCU and meet a team of surgeons in a few weeks.
Biopsy also came back with reactive lymph nodes and low b cells.
This is very strange work up and it should not take a year to get a diagnosis. And what do you mean the doctor will not fill you in? We have no way of knowing what is going on that is something you should get from the doctor and if you can’t you get another doctor. It sounds like you should have long ago. If it were cancer it would be very obvious by now. Why haven’t they removed the appendix? (+ info
can i get DLA cos i got a malignant neoplasm of the pituitary gland?
also failed my HGV medical on these grounds aswell as something about my eye ?(begins with a 'D'),DOUBLE VISION as well
i am on steriods ,and tablets,but lost my job today cos DR wouldnt pass me on dvla medical ?
DLA is disabled living allowance is payable when you a an issue that affects your ability to lead a normal life and when you need assistance with day to day living issues.
Hard to get nowadays.
You will probably be able to get incapacity benefit with a malignant lesion of the pituitary gland and the best people to take you through your options are the benefits people at the Job Centre.
As a genuine claimant and having lost your job due to ill health they have to offer you a medical assessment to see what you can and cannot do. If you have double vision then your employment prospects are severely limited.
On Monday get yourself down the Job Centre and get the ball rolling as there are other benefits that may be better for you than DLA. The lower level of DLA is only about £14 a week. You will need more that that to live! (+ info
What are the common name for the breast cancer?
Breast cancer, familial
* Breast carcinoma
* Cancer of breast
* Malignant neoplasm of breast
* malignant tumour of breast
* Mammary cancer
these are the common names i've found online tell me if it is true.
Those are all common names. What really matters is the pathological description of the biopsy. Most breast carcinomas are adenocarcinomas. The general name is not the important thing. The specific characteristics of the malignant breast cancer cells are important - the receptors, the degree of differentiation, nodal status, primary tumor size, overall stage. Breast cancers - and all types of cancer - are complicated. The oncologist will probably try to explain these details for the individual case you are asking about. It can be difficult for a non medical specialist to understand it all. (+ info
Design ideas for Relay For Life team logo?
My sister and I both have cancer. I have stage 4 Appendiceal/Colon cancer and She has Stage 1 Cervical cancer. The ribbon for Colon cancer is dark blue, appendiceal cancer ribbon is amber and cervical is teal/white.
Our team name is Sorelle di Lotta= Fighting Sisters
I'd like to have a modern logo for our shirts, but don't know where to start. Should the shirt be teal, white or dark blue?
colour for shirts, i reckon white or white with teal and then you can use the other colours in the logo.
what about 2 females with swords dressed in the other colours such as one in amber and one in teal if you don't use it in the shirt colour, fighting a bit germ type blob thing or a dragon which could be dark blue. maybe you could put the saying 'fighting for life' on it somewhere under say a rainbow.
keep fighting girls and good luck. (+ info

If during your hysterectomy the ovaries were left intact, one or both, its very possible to have ovarian neoplasm. You can read more here:

Diag: Cerebellar dysfunction 2nd degree to vestibulitis, intracranial neoplasm, subdural hemotoma?
this diag. is from 1971
This is a diagnosis that was given to me when I was a child - can anyone help me with definitions of this.
I know it has to do with the brain being inflamed and having abnormal growth and a blood clot.
I would just like to know what it really means.
As a supplement to what essentiallysolo answered it should be mentioned that not all intracranial neoplasias are malignant (ie cancers). For instance most menigiomas are considered benign. Also some astrocytomas, ("pilocytic astrocytomas" are often seen in childhood in the cerebellum) behave benign. Was that what you had?. (+ info
