Brief Answer:
It is not rare

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia is not a rare disease.
Ambiguous genitalia are even more common.

I did not understand the third question. If you can re-phrase the third question, I will be better able to help.

Hi I hope You are doing wel and had a great Holiday. I am a lyphoma patient finally in remission for now. Before the cancer though I had a bad back proplem but it was kept going great with pain meds so that I could work and I LOVED WORKING *23 years*. THey say I have sever arthritis, scoliosis, degenerating disk and I was on dexamethason for 11 years for my congenital adrenal hyperplasia. A Bone biopsy to make sure no cancer in bones was done on right hip. As my cancer god better and all back issues and arthritis got put on back burner in pain department at that time. It is now coming back with a vengence and I now have a bakers cyct behind both knees and My back is back hurting badly. But a really new one has showed about a year and half ago and is getting worse. A Ortho in memphis has injected one of the bakers cyct which is did absolutely nothing to it. But most check my right hip and have found nothing wrong with it. A recent MRI says I have a effusion in my left hip. How is this possible? what is it? What would cause it? Would it be what is causing all the problems going on with my right side? Should I add that to my list of fear of when my cancer will come back please.? Is it fixable? THank You so much of You time
