did you ever listen about neurocysticercosis caused by tapeworms, it is said to be caused by eating uncooked porks. I got to know about it through a head doctor who observed the worms inthe brain on CT scan report. he then said it can be caused by unhealthy pork and beef. beware
Hi. About half an hour ago my guinea pig bit my wrist. It has swollen to about the size of a small potato. Upon looking at my other wrist I ve noticed quite a thick vein and was wondering if this is serious or if I just wait it will get better? When I was initially bitten it bled quite a lot so I ran it under a cold water tap until it stopped. There isn t any discolouring as yet but it is fairly painful. Thank you.

Hello, I have no knowledge of medical terms. Hence I will put the matter as what I have understood from the doctors Here are the details:- 1) My father,age-68 years old, was facing problem of blood with stool. So I did colonoscopy which showed that he has Rectum Cancer & it is just 3~5 centimeters from the anus. 2) Meanwhile, found the cancer is WILD TYPE & not localized & some nodes(which are doubtful) are seen in the liver, lungs as well in the prostates. 3) So doctors advised to check him for the targeted(Neo-adjuvant) therapy & sent the biopsy to the laboratory & found that he is suitable for ERBITUX-600mg doses. 4) Now total 4 chemos (FOLFOX with ERBITUX) is done & patient’s health seems to be well responding. 5) Again doctors are advising to have the Sonography. 6) Doctors saying is that he will try to kill the doubtful nodes, will shrink the tumor which is present in the rectum & it will be easy to operate on it. My queries are below:- 1) Are we on right track 2) Will this therapy help to recover fully at this time though it may be a stage-4 cancer. 3) Whether the cancer can spread to the others as my father lives with me & I have a small child. Will it be in danger or will all of us be in danger…? 4) Will just sonography help to come to conclusion to see whether patient is responding or not… 5) Depending on the above scenario, can you generally comment on the life span of such patients…
My 9 year old son has been ill with various bugs, infections since October 2010, including d&v, coughs, bad cold, flu and then probably swine flu over Christmas. The doctor did various blood tests to see if there was an underlying reason and they came back today with low white blood cells. She's said she'll retest in 3 weeks. Should we be concerned? Thanks
i was wondering why ever since the first outbreak of swine flu (2009)which i believe i had, i keep getting a recurring virus every few months with all the same kind of symptoms. Could it be swine flu recurring or a weakened immune system that causes this?
I got the swine flu five months ago and I have RA. I was hospitalized for five days and they gave me the anti viral drugs along with prednisone. I recently became ill with what seems to be sinus infection. I'm experiencing regurgitation and sore throat that feels swollen and I can't eat, cause it is really uncomfortable do to the severity of the inflammation and pain that radiates to my left ear. I'm on antibiotics for like the fourth time since I got the H1n1. Should I be worried? Can you have complications this far out after the initial onset of the flu?
My son is doing a research paper on the Swine Flu. We're trying to find out which organs and body systems are affected by the virus, its symptoms, which part of the population is affected (gender, age, etc.), and if the epidemic only occurs at a certain time of the year. Thank you.
