Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans Prognosis

Image
       Cancer - a life threatening disease. It is an autoimmune disease, where some of the body cell grow out of body's control and spread throughout the body. These abnormal body cells start destruction of normal body cell.       Cancer is due to some genetic changes in DNA structure of body. The normal body cells have a life span , but when there are such type of changes in DNA, these body cells do not die, rather they grow up and disturb the function of normally working cells.       There are some common cancers such as Lung cancer, skin cancer, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, bladder cancer, etc. There are some rare cancers also, that do not occur in general, and they may have no spreading speed as these common cancers have.  Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, is one of the rare type sarcoma.        Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is generally a flesh colored or reddish purplish colored firm patch of skin. It occurs generally in the middle layer of skin. From there, it c

Wrist cyst Ganglion!! ..treat with Homoeopathy

           Ganglion cysts frequently develop on the back of the wrist !!           Ganglion cysts are noncancerous lumps that most commonly develop along the tendons (a tendon is a tough band of fibers that joins muscles to bones) or joints of our wrists or hand.  These are soft, gel-like masses that often change size.            It is a small sac of fluid that forms over a joint or tendon. The size may range from the size of a pea to a golf ball.   These cysts occur in various locations, but most frequently develop on the back of the wrist.          Cyst grows out of the cells surrounding a joint, such as ligaments, tendon sheaths, and joint linings, like a balloon. Inside the balloon is a thick, sticky, clear, colourless, jellylike fluid, similar to the fluid that lubricates our joints.                 They are most common in younger people between the ages of 15 to 40 years, and women are more likely to be affected than men. These cysts are also common among gymnasts, who repeatedly

Yaw...ning @@@

Image
    Everybody yawns, humans, animals, all. From foetus who is in the mother's womb to great-grandpa or granny.       Yawning is an automatic body response to tiredness or stress. It is associated with sleepiness or drowsiness. People also yawn when they see others yawn, or even they read about yawning, as a form of empathy.      Yawning means deep inspiration i.e. inhale breathing that is followed by exhaling breathe out by wide open mouth. When we yawn, we open our mouth wide and breathe in air, filling our lungs. Our  eardrums stretch, eyes water and extra oxygen is carried to our brain and other parts of the body. A yawn can be both of long and short duration. It increases our alertness by forcing oxygen and blood into our brain.       Large or long-duration yawning is not a sign of any serious medical condition, excessive yawning is that when it occurs more than once in a minute. Although excessive yawning is usually attributed to being sleepy or bored, it may be a sign of some

Corns !!!

Image
              Corns are generally seen as dry, hard flesh colored slight whitish  and pointed at its center. Corns or callus or heloma are cone-shaped thickening of the skin that develop due to friction and pressure i.e. repeated mechanical trauma. The excessive thickening of skin results into pain in sole while walking or walking with hard footwear. Corns most often develop on the tops and sides of the feet and between the toes. Some corns may not be painful when they first develop but then become painful over times as they thicken. The raised areas of skin - of corns- can be tender or sensitive touch or pressure.                They are similar to Callus but usually harder, smaller and more painful. They are more common among the people, who wear ill-fitting shoes, have sweaty feet, and those who stand for long period each day.  Causes -:                Corns are caused by continuous friction or pressure at the point. Abnormal walking tendencies like giving extra pressure on one poi
