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

          Sodium is one of the major mineral in our body that helps in fluid and electrolyte balance. In our body, it helps to transfer signals from cell to cell. It controls body's extracellular and intracellular fluid and electrolyte balance. In extracellular fluid about 20 to 23 mg Sodium is present in our body, about the similar amount in intracellular fluid, and remaining in skeleton and other tissues, therefore the total sodium content in adult is about 90 to 95 mg.                 It is distributed unequally within the two main body compartments i.e. intracellular ( in the cell) compartment and extracellular compartment. When this amount of  Sodium  in fluids outside the cell goes below normal levels, water moves inside the cells, and cells swells and electrolyte balance is disturbed. Normally, intracellular  Sodium  concentration is 12mmol/L and extracellular  Sodium  concentration is about 140mmol/L.              The absorption of sodium is generally occur in small gut or

               The condition COPD i.e. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. The disease is treatable and also known with other names like Emphysema or Chronic Bronchitis.

          Sinus is cavity or sac in organ or tissue of our body. This may be due to some derangement in function or destruction of that tissue, but not always. The Paranasal sinuses are natural and anatomically structured in our body.

Structure -  Paranasal sinuses are four pairs of hollow cavities. These are Maxillary sinus, Frontal sinus, Ethmoid sinus, Sigmoid sinus. These four pairs are situated in skull bone like in cheekbone, Ethmoid bone, eye orbit etc., bilaterally. These sacs are filled with inhaled air through nose as they are connected to nose. The cavity is inte
