Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by a decrease in bone density and strength, that's to say, bones become more fragile and breakable, with the presence of abnormal pores, taking the shape of sponge. The disorder weakens bones and increases their susceptibility to fractures such as the fractures of spine and thighbone.

Causes:
Your bone tissues are in a constant state of renewal from birth until adolescence and reach their peak bone density by early twenties, and with aging the bone tissues degrade and the body begins to replace them, the process is known as (renewal).
In case of osteoporosis the bone tissues cannot be compensated and become less dense and porous, brittle and breakable.

Symptoms and signs:
The symptoms do not usually show up at the early stages of osteoporosis, but some of them occur with the progress of the disease, including:
  • Back pain caused by a fractured or collapsed vertebra. 
  • Loss of height.
  • Stooped posture.
  • Easily incidence of bone fractures.

Risk factors:
The following risk factors are uncontrollable:
  • Aging.
  • Gender: Women are much more likely to develop osteoporosis.
  • Family history of osteoporosis.
  • Menopause/Hysterectomy
  • Rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Primary and secondary hypogonadism.
  • Diabetes.

  • Frequent falls.
 Diagnosis:
  • Diagnosis is done by evaluating risk factors and medical history of patient.
  • Bone density device Central DXA.
Complications:
Bone fractures, particularly in the spine, pelvic bones and thighs are the most serious complication of osteoporosis due to the fact that they are the main bones that carry the bulk of the body weight. In some cases, spinal fractures can occur even if you haven't fallen or got a blow as a result of weakened back bones (vertebrae).

Treatment:
Medications:
  • Alendronate.
  • Risedronate.
  • Ibandronate.
  • Zoledronic acid.

Drugs supporting the treatment of osteoporosis:
The doctor may prescribe calcium and vitamin D as supportive drugs for treating osteoporosis.
Prevention:
  • Improving the life style (healthy diet and exercising).
  • Quitting smoking.
  • Exposing to sunrays to stimulate the production of vitamin D. 
  • Nutrition: Eating healthy foods such as the ones rich in calcium and vitamin D.

Lung Cancer:
Lung cancer is the term used to describe the growth of abnormal cells lining the trachea inside the lung. These cells divide and grow more rapidly than normal cells. They are cancerous cells that combine to form a cluster or tumor in the lung.

If the cancerous cells originate in the lungs, the tumor is called a primary lung cancer.
However, if some lung cancer cells are able to move through the blood vessels, they get attached to another organ of the body and continue growing. This growth and movement of the new cancerous cells is called malignant tumor or a secondary lung cancer.
Causes:
  • Smoking is a major factor in the development of lung cancer.
  • Secondhand smoking.
  • Genetic factor (family history).
  • Repeated exposure to chemical fumes and gasses such as radioactive radon gas. 
 Symptoms:
  • Acute and chronic cough accompanied by blood.
  • Change in the color, intensity and volume of coughing up sputum.

  • General feeling of fatigue and weakness.
  • Feeling of pain in chest, shoulder, arms or back.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Recurrent pneumonia.
Diagnosis:
Lung cancer is diagnosed by:
  • Medical history.
  • Clinical examination.
  • X-ray of the lung.
  • CT scan
  • PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scan.
  • Biopsy of lung cells.

Risk Factors
  • Smoking.
  • Secondhand smoking.
  • Environmental pollution.
  • Repeated exposure to radon gas.
  • Repeated exposure to cancerous minerals and chemical materials such as: asbestos, uranium, diesel, arsenic, silica, nickel compounds, coal products, mustard gas, chrome ... etc.
  • Previous radiation therapy of the lungs.
  • Family history. 
 
Complications:
The lung cancer may cause health complications such as:
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Coughing up blood.
  • Feeling pain.
  • Accumulation of fluid in the lung.
  • Spread of the cancer to other parts of the body.

Treatment:
Initially, treatment of lung cancer depends on the following:
  • Size of tumor.
  • Type of tumor.
  • Stage of tumor.
  • Health condition of patient.

Accordingly, treatment plan will be developed; as yet there are three types of treatment to control the lung cancer:
  • Surgery.
  • Radiation therapy.
  • Chemotherapy.    
Prevention:
  • Quitting smoking.
  • Avoiding secondhand smoke.

How To Perform A Breast Self Examination

How To Perform A Breast Self Examination

Although doctors recommend that women begin practicing breast self-exams (BSE) at age 20, many are still unaware of how important this procedure is to their heath. As 1 in 9 women will develop breast cancer, early detection is the best way to fight the disease. The key is to notice tumors before they grow to be potentially deadly; a BSE carefully searches the breasts for signs of these tumors.

A special advisory group of doctors created standard procedures for a BSE to assist women in becoming 'breast aware.' This awareness refers to knowing your normal breast fully, and being more likely to notice a change that could be cancerous. Naturally, the breasts will change overtime, and regular self-examinations can help decide what is normal and what is a concern.

While there is no definition for a normal breast, you should know the symptoms that a BSE searches for.

A lump or bumpy area in the breast or armpit
A noticeable change in outline or shape of the breast
A non-milky nipple discharge, or an inverted nipple
A dimpling, scaling or discolouration of the skin around the breast
A breast self-exam is recommended every month a few days after your period ends. 

By searching improperly, you may miss a tumor! Not every cancer can be located in this way, but a BSE is a critical step for becoming 'breast aware.' The earlier you begin regular exams, abnormalities will be less difficult to discover. For women who find tumors in their early stages, 80% will survive.

First, examine your breasts in a mirror with the arms both lowered and raised; search for the visible symptoms described above. Next, feel your breasts while lying down. Using a firm and smooth touch cover the entire breast from the collarbone to the top of the abdomen, and from the armpit to cleavage. Breasts often have different zones where tumors can occur ...be sure to examine them all.

If you find a lump or one of the other named symptoms, consult your GP as soon as possible. Remember, early discovery is the best way to combat breast cancer.

In this video Dr Chris shows you how to check your breasts for any possible signs of growths or other symptoms.
