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.

          When water is not conserved in the Kidneys, it is frequently excreted through urine and is associated with much thirst. Diabetes Insipidus is one of the rare conditions of Kidney disorders.                     Diabetes Insipidus is not related to Diabetes mellitus where also frequent urination is marked. Clinically the condition is characterized by frequent urination and increased thirst.      Types - Central Diabetes Insipidus - This is due to trauma or any misfunctioning of Hypothalamus ( a small gland at the base of our brain) or Pituitary gland. Hypothalamus regulates the storing and excretion of water from kidney. Similarly, this damage may cause disturbances in vasopressin secretion. When vasopressin secretion disturbs, it may cause excess of fluid excretion from kidney. One study suggests that abnormality in genes is responsible for vasopressin secretion. This may also result due to head injury, trauma or brain disease. Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus - This condition

What Does Osteoporosis Mean ?

Image
                    Osteoporosis , is the weakening of bones and more prone to sudden fracture. Porous means very small multiple spaces through which air or a liquid can pass. The bones become porous i.e. weak and brittle, hence the condition is called as osteoporosis.          Osteoporosis , is a clinically silent condition until no fracture occur. Slowly the bone strength deteriorates and the bones become brittle. If untreated the condition progresses slowly and bones become more and more weak.                Hip joint fractures are at highest incidence among fractures due to osteoporosis.                      Pathophysiology of Osteoporosis -                 Our body is supported by bones. The organs in out body are protected by bones. These bones are made up of hard stuff that gives strength and a group of specialized cell that can grow and get repair by themselves.               The bone physiology h as of one unique remodeling cycle, consists of two important phases.
