A common symptom of breast cancer. Breast cancer is rare in males. it is a high incidence of cancer, there are significant differences in incidence rates around the world. Approximately 182, 800 new cases of invasive breast cancer are diagnosed in the United States per year. Japan's low incidence of female breast cancer may be related to frequent intake of kelp and other seaweed food-related. Asian female breast cancer incidence rate has been close to Europe and the United States, the incidence and earlier age than women in Europe and the United States. Breast cancer has been the most dangerous malignant tumor for women.

If got breast cancer, can have what symptom. Many people believed that breast cancer's only symptom is in the breast presents the tumour. It not complete. The symptoms of breast cancer including breast mass, breast Skin changes, changes in nipple color, nipple discharge, pain, and axillary lymph nodes. Breast lumps are the main symptoms of 95% of patients. Breast lumps should be evaluated because of the threat of breast cancer especially in women over age 40. Breast skin changes. The common symptom of various mammary diseases, its clinical occurrence rate is about 8% or so. Breast pain Although breast pain can be found in a variety of breast diseases, but the pain is not common symptoms of breast cancer, Whether benign or malignant breast tumors is almost always painless. Axillary adenopathy may be part of a generalized process or may be localized and secondary to infection in the limb.

Operation treatment , radiotherapy , chemical medication , biological immunization therapy are four major treatment means of the cancer at present. Current biological therapies have demonstrated excellent efficacy in PsA and have been shown to be safe agents. With the development of biological technology, gene immunotherapy for cancer has been the focus of cancer treatment study. Immune therapy is that a large number of immune cells are cultured in the laboratory. Make the immune cells has Identification And Targeted, and then retransfused into the body through veins. Immune therapy can treat and suppress tumor recurrence and metastasis. Immune therapy does not destroy the human immune system. Immune therapy is to develop its own immune cells, it is different from traditional chemical treatments so that no side effects. Whole body hyperthermia is another means to treat cancer after surgical treatment, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and biological immunotherapy.

    Why are different diseases more prominent among different ages?
    Leukaemia is usually diagnosed among young people. Chron’s disease is most likely to strike between your teens and 20’s and 50’s- 70’s. Bipolar disorder is most common in the late teens and early adulthood. Why do certain diseases commonly strike these certain ages?

    1. Lisa Lisa

      The immune system is compromised, meaning it cannot prevent or fight infection the way someone without immunodeficiency can.

      Muskuloskeletal system is compromised as well. Difficulties with walking, grasping, and pain with movement are common as well.

    What are the side effects of a Hepatitis B vaccination?
    I had my first HepB shot yesterday, and I’ve noticed I’ve got a lump on my neck, near my adams apple.

    I also keep having cycles of being too hot and then being really cold.

    I’ve got cold-like symptoms and my eyes are tender.

    What could this be? Is it a serious side effect I should get checked out or a common effect that will fade away in a couple of days?

    How t prevent all kinds of diseases?
    Well, i think it is time i start taking better care of myself.

    I don’t need answers that say “vaccines, drugs” and any of that sorts.

    I need answers that i can do in everyday life.

    And also to make my immune system stronger.

      What You Can Do To Stay Healthy

      Evidence shows that some of the leading causes of death in the United States, such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, some lung diseases, injuries, and HIV/AIDS, often can be prevented by improving personal health habits. Eating right, staying physically active, and not smoking are a few examples of good habits that can help you stay healthy.

      Creating a Healthy Lifestyle

      Eating Right
      Eating the right foods and the right amounts of foods can help you live a longer, healthier life. Research has proven that many illnesses—such as diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure—can be prevented or controlled by eating right. Getting the nutrients you need, such as calcium and iron, and keeping your weight under control can help. Try to balance the calories you get from food with the calories you use through physical activity (select for more information about physical activity). It is never too late to start eating right. Here are some helpful tips.

      Eat a variety of foods, especially:

      Vegetables. Choose dark-green leafy and deep-yellow vegetables.

      Fruits. Choose citrus fruits or juices, melons, and berries.

      Dry beans (such as red beans, navy beans, and soybeans), lentils, chickpeas, and peanuts.

      Whole grains, such as wheat, rice, oats, corn, and barley.

      Whole grain breads and cereals.

      Eat foods low in fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol, especially:


      Poultry prepared without skin; lean meat.

      Low-fat dairy products.

      Weight Control
      Weighing too much or too little can lead to health problems. After age 45, many people gain too much weight. You can control your weight by eating healthy foods and being physically active. For more information, select the next section, “Physical Activity.”

      Ask your health care professional:

      What is a healthy weight for me?

      What are some ways I can control my weight?

      Keep track of your weight. Use your personal prevention chart.

      Physical Activity
      Research shows that physical activity can help prevent at least six diseases: heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity (excess weight), diabetes, osteoporosis, and mental disorders, such as depression. Physical activity also will help you feel better and stay at a healthy weight. Research suggests that brisk walking can be just as good for you as an activity such as jogging. Try to do a total of 30 minutes of constant physical activity, such as fast walking, most days of the week.

      Before you start being physically active:

      Talk with your doctor about ways to get started.

      Choose something that fits into your daily life, such as walking, gardening, raking leaves, or even washing windows.

      Choose an activity you like, such as dancing or swimming.

      Try a new activity, like biking.

      Ask a friend to start with you, or join a group.

      Don’t quit:

      Make time for physical activity, start slowly, and keep at it.

      If the weather is bad, try an exercise show on TV, watch an exercise tape in your home, walk in the mall, or work around the house.

      Safe Sex
      Sexually transmitted diseases. Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), such as herpes, syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia, are passed easily from one person to the next through sexual intercourse. STDs are more common in people under the age of 50. But, if you or your partner have other sexual partners, you are at risk for STDs. You can lower your chances of getting an STD by using a latex condom every time you have sex. If you have not taken this step, you may need testing for STDs.

      HIV and AIDS. AIDS is a disease that breaks down the body’s ability to fight infection and illness. AIDS is caused by the HIV virus. By preventing HIV infection, you can prevent AIDS.

      People in midlife and those who are older can become infected with HIV. In fact, 10 percent of all AIDS cases in the United States have occurred in people over the age of 50.

      I hope some of this will help you.

    What kind of diseases do people in their early teens get?
    I’m around that age and I was just wondering what are the most common diseases people get.
    Like some diseases are more catchable when you’re younger or people get them when they’re that age for example. I read about a disease called spinobellar degenerative I think and most people get it when they’re like 8-18 years old or something. But it breaks my heart to think about how many diseases there are and how they affect people and their lives.

      Infectious mononucleosis

      Other viral illnesses

      Strains and sprains, bumps and bruises

      Uncommonly – immune disorders: lupus, juvenile rheumatoid, crohn’s disease, allergies (urticaria)

  5. Nick

    Are there people out there who are born without emotion?
    I know there are those born without immune systems, pain sensors, etc. But, does anyone know if someones out there who doesn’t have an emotional system? Or, something close to that idea?

    What is the pharmacists role in dealing with addictive drugs or drugs that might be abused or misprescribed?
    I’m writing a paper and I need to know how pharmacists would treat a situation where a patient may be addicted to drugs. Moreover, I’d like to know the protocol. What would happen in a situation where the doctor prescribed the wrong medication to a patient? How would the pharmacist deal with it? What are the safety protocols? How do they make sure patients with psychological disorders take their medicine? Please be elaborate. If any pharmacists choose to respond, some personal situations would help.

    1. Az R

      Well, this obviously depends on the situation, and wether the person is a Pharm Tech, or Pharmacist. Generally the responsibilities of a pharmacist are much more substantial than a mere tech.

      The ability of a pharmacist to second guess a doctor is quite limited, though it’s been legally established that under certain circumstances they have the ability to refuse to fill a prescription, and even contact law enforcement. The latter occurs particularly when it’s clear a customer is attempting to fill a forged or altered prescription. Prescriptions generally have anti-tampering methods, and if it’s clear a prescription has been altered (eg, bleached and rewritten), it tends to be fairly obvious. Certain shorthand notations are common and a prescription that has been altered generally won’t follow these. If a prescription is for an extremely atypical medication in turns of dosage, or amount (say a very large number of opiate painkillers, or multiple high potency ones), under most jurisdictions a pharmacist has a legal obligation to contact the doctor and confirm this before they can fill the prescription.

      As for incorrect medications, there’s a limit to a pharmacist’s ability to identify these though it’s generally greater than a doctor’s (say if a patient is seeing several doctors, such as specialists). If a patient comes in with two conflicting prescriptions this is fairly easy to recognize – or if they have prior prescriptions in the pharmacy’s database that conflict. In this case, it’s the obligation to discuss this with the patient, and contact the doctors in question. Most pharmacy software systems used in hospitals and a good portion of those used in retail automatically recognize some of the more common medications. Hospital systems also tend to recognize medication allergies – though this can be a problem as sometimes patients confuse poor tolerance (eg, Vicodin made my stomach upset) vs a true allergy.

      Safety protocols vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. CPhT and Pharmacist continuing education generally requires the person to take some units in legal aspects and recognizing medication diversion and illicit prescriptions. I’ve only worked as a CPhT when I was an undergraduate, and it was generally our responsibility only to report suspicious materials to the on-staff pharmacist and let him deal with it.

      Medication adherence is a messy issue, in general, but especially so with psychological disorders. One common thing we ran into all the time was patients with more severe asthma being prescribed steroids. These are of course, corticosteroids, used to control the run-away immune response in asthma. Patients would hear the term steroid and then not take their medicine, assuming it to be the same sort of steroids railed against in the newsmedia and abused in professional sports with catastrophic effects. In medicine, steroids are a huge variety of molecules, and doctors frequently don’t recognize that when they say steroid inhaler, a patient here’s insane sportsplayer muscle building horror drug.

      Psych things are tricky. They can talk with the pharmacist of course – most know more about the details of medications, the messy biology than doctors and can give a lot of reassurance. There’s also been some effort for devising a sort of protocol for a medication consult system, where a pharmacist meets with a patient, discusses any problems they have taking their medication (eg, I forget) and works with them to use some techniques to address these problems. I don’t know if these have been implemented in the CE curriculum or in practice, they were still being developed when I was in the field.

      Hope that’s somewhat useful. A relic of a part time undergraduate job. I work primarily in the lab these days and don’t see a lot of this, but if you want something specific, feel free to mail me and I’ll offer what I can.

    WHY does an auto-immune disorder make the thyroid gland produce excessive thyroxine?
    it’s the only question left on my homework, please? it doesn’t have to be long, just why?

    1. hope

      The most common reason is where your body’s defences falsely recognise your own tissue as an invader and begin to attack it. This is called auto-immune disease and it stimulates the thyroid to produce more hormones.

      Causes of hyperthyroidism

      Graves’ disease
      This is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism in the UK, accounting for 60 to 80% of cases. Graves’ disease is an “autoimmune” disease. Antibodies are proteins designed to defend the body from foreign organisms, such as bacteria and viruses. In autoimmune conditions, antibodies attack the body itself. In Graves’ disease, antibodies cause the thyroid gland to produce too much thyroid hormone.

      Nodular thyroid disease
      Nodules – small lumps – within the thyroid account for the majority of the other cases of hyperthyroidism. Abnormal thyroid tissue within these nodules produces too much thyroid hormone. If one nodule forms, this is called toxic solitary adenoma. If more than one forms, this is called toxic multinodular goitre.

      Other causes
      There are other rare causes of hyperthyroidism. In thyroiditis, there is inflammation of the thyroid gland from either infection or autoimmune attack. Thyroiditis can also be associated with pregnancy. Too much iodine in the diet (or taking drugs containing iodine) is a further cause of hyperthyroidism.

    How common is it to get the skin disease vitiligo?
    I have a very distant cousin who has it, and I’m wondering if it’s genetic. Also, is this a rare disease, or is it actually very common and just not talked about? I’m African American and proud of my color, so naturally, I don’t want to lose it. Not to mention the cost of treatments, and the possible need to bleach my skin to even everything out. I know it’s silly, but I’m nervous about it. Does anyone have any information?

    My boyfriend is worried about having Alzheimer’s disease?
    I just really want to give him some peace of mind because I love him entirely.
    His grandfather had it and died and he said it was a depressing time to see his grandfather stuck outside of time. He’s worried that maybe he has it.
    His dad isn’t old enough yet to show any signs of it.
    His mom is fine.
    Is Alzheimer’s common when its hereditary in the family?

    What is the difference between Lindane poison and Multiple Sclerosis?
    I’m doing a presentation in MS but it seems like both disorders have common symptoms. Then what is the difference between them?
    Do you know any famous person/ celebrities who have had MS or is having one?

  12. MaluLanix0x

    What is the difference between Lupus affecting the nervous system and MS?
    What symptoms are different for each? How are they different and how are they the same? How common is it to have Lupus (SLE) and a neurological disorder such as MS?

    1. Linda R

      Both lupus and multiple sclerosis are autoimmune disease in which the immune system goes haywire and attacks healthy parts of the self.

      In multiple sclerosis, the immune system destroys the myelin sheath or fatty covering of the nerves. This can result in loss of transmission of signals.

      In lupus, neurological symptoms can include things like seizures and neuropathy, or nerve pain. The mechanism by which lupus causes these things is not the same as in MS.

    What are the common health problems that vegans/vegetarians suffer???
    I know that a vegetarian/vegan is healthy just like any other person would be and we all are exposed to diseases no matter what we eat.. but if a person becomes a vegan/vegetarian and does not get the right nutrients what are the possible disorders/diseases he is going to get…like anemia, vitamin b12 deficiency . thanks

      Vegetarianism is practiced by individuals for health reasons or by some groups for religious reasons. Vegetarians are people who have decided to give up eating some or all meat, or fleshy, foods. A vegan is a person who abstains from eating all types of animal products and is the strictest kind of vegetarian. Some vegetarians will eat items such as fish and eggs, and others will eat some types of dairy products such as milk or cheese.
      It has been shown that vegetarians tend to suffer less from diseases such as cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, and diet-related diabetes. In order to be as disease free as possible vegetarians incorporate a wide range of foods into their diet. By doing this they are getting all the essential nutrients they need to live. Vegetarians that aren’t careful to include a wide range of foods or supplements can suffer from deficiencies in zinc, calcium, Vitamin D, Iron, Vitamin B-12, and protein.
      Zinc is a very important element needed for healthy skin and a healthy immune system. Zinc helps us to resist infection. If the amount of zinc is low in the body it can sometimes be very hard to raise through diet alone and supplements may be required. Zinc can be obtained from beans, nuts, seeds, green vegetables, and whole grain cereals.
      Calcium, of course, is needed to keep our bones strong but it is also needed for good nerve and muscle function. Calcium also helps our blood to clot properly. Without enough calcium in our bodies we can suffer from Osteoporosis or nerve and muscle damage. Calcium can be obtained from dark leafy vegetables such as collard greens, turnip greens, kale, okra, mustard greens, or broccoli. Fortified products such as calcium fortified orange juice or calcium supplements can also provide our daily intake of calcium.
      Just as important as calcium itself is Vitamin D which essential for the absorption of calcium and phosphorous. The best source of Vitamin D is sunlight but it can also be obtained from fish oils such as cod liver oil. Milk, cheese, and butter are also a great source of Vitamin D. For the vegetarian that doesn’t eat any meat product fortified foods or supplements can be used.
      Iron deficiency anemia is common in children and younger women. Iron can be obtained by eating foods such as spinach, collard greens, lentils, dried beans, broccoli, and bok choy. It has been shown that eating iron rich foods in combination with Vitamin C rich foods will increase the absorption of iron into the body.
      Vitamin B-12 is needed for blood formation and cell division within the body. Plant foods do not provide Vitamin B-12 which can be a problem for vegetarians. A deficiency in this vitamin can cause severe and irreversible nerve damage. Vitamin B-12 can be obtained from supplements or fortified foods such as soy milk and breakfast cereals.
      Protein is needed for the body to grow and repair itself. Protein can be obtained from a number of sources in a vegetarian diet. Nuts, seeds, legumes, grains, and soy products all contain protein.
      If you feel that your vegetarian diet is not meeting all of these needs you should consult your doctor or a registered dietitian for assistance.

    how do injuries to the musculoskeletal system impact mobility and locomotion?
    how do common disorders such as arthritis, osteoporosis etc affect our mobility and locomotion??

    1. gillianprowe

      Arthritis and Osteoperosis cause pain. Arthritis means distruction of the cartilage in the joints. The cartilage is like a solid lubricating layer between where the end of the bones meet and that allows the bones to glide freely over each other, supported by the tendons and muscles. Without that cartilage, you end up with bone grating on bone. Arthrits as such is not a injury. Rheumatoid Arthritis is where your own immune system gets Alzheimers, cannot remember what cells are your own body cells: cartilage, bone, muscle, tendon, heart, lung, liver and so attacks them as if they were a foreign invader, bug. In doing this they produce a special protein and when you have a blood test this protein is what they look for. Osteoarthritis, used to be a called ‘wear and tear’ because Cartilage is not expected to last forever, so it starts to deterioate and eventually wears out. However current study is now looking to se if this form is genetic?
      Osteoperosis is when as a child you failed to build up your bone density. That means that you did not have enough calcium, milk, cheese and Sunlight, to make the bone absorbe the calcium. As the bones stop growing at about 20, you start to loose the bone density, thickness. If this is allowed to continue then your bones become brittle and you can break your spine just by lifiting a coffee table, or break a hip, just by banging into a door, as your bones a fragile.
      Therefore the mobility is reduced due to pain, fatigue and exhaustion. Likewise when something hurts, last thing you want to do is ‘move’ it, because that makes the pain worse. Then you have other sides, as their is no cure, so you can fall into depression and that on top of the pain, well it is a downward spiral. Even if you go into remission, have no pain, the problem is you have not used the joint, so now you end up with weak muscles, as you have allowed them to get weak by not exercising, due to pain. It is a vicious circle.
      If the joint get to the place where they need to be replaced, well before they are replaced you are in pain and they allow you to continue in pain, because after the surgery, within hours you have to exercise, more pain. Likewise going from having a painful weak joint, to a new strong joint, but weak muscles, you need to find the trust to allow the new joint to hold the weight of your body. You have spent years in fear that the joint will give way and now you have to talk yourself into realising the new joint will hold your weight. I had a friend who had two knees that were fused, due to Arthritis. She could not bend either knee, as with the pain she took to the bed and did not want to exercise, so the knee joints without cartilage fused. Anyway they replaced one knee and she told me that the Nurses and PTs were saying ‘We went to all that trouble and now you cannot remeber how to bend your knee’. She had been left so long, she had forgotten how to bend a knee!
      Best of Luck
