Vaginal Prolapse Overview- Uterine prolapse occurs in a woman when uterus is detached from its place and penetrates the vagina. This occurs because of a weakening of the pelvic floor that supports and maintains the pelvic organs in place. The symptoms of prolapse are numerous: the patient will experience mainly pain and the feeling of a visceral movement. The choice of therapy is based on the degree of severity of uterine prolapse.
Endometriosis is a painful, chronic disease that affects millions of women and girls worldwide. It occurs when tissue that lines the uterus, called endometrium, is found outside the uterus, usually in the abdomen or ovaries, fallopian tubes, in the ligaments supporting the reproductive organs, and in the pelvic cavity. It can also sometimes be found in the bladder, bowels, vagina, cervix, vulva, and in abdominal surgical scars. Rarely but occasionally it can be found in the lung, arm, thigh and other locations.

According to Bulletti, et. al. (2010), “Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrial-like tissue (glands and stroma) outside the uterus, which induces a chronic inflammatory reaction, scar tissue, and adhesions that may distort a woman’s pelvic anatomy.

Gynecomastia (Breasts on a Man) Men have breasts but with minimal glandular tissue present. Gynecomastia refers to the development of female-quantity breast glands in the male patient. Most cases begin during puberty. No one knows why certain adolescent males develop breast tissue, but it is probably caused by having either higher levels of hormones in the blood or an increased sensitivity of normal breast tissue to typical levels of circulating hormones, especially the female hormone called estrogen. Alternatively, it may be due to either decreased levels of male hormones (such as testosterone) or insensitivity to these hormones.

Monchek and Wiedaseck define Hydatidiform mole as a disease resulting from an atypical growth of the trophoblastic cells that would normally develop into the placenta. It starts at the time of fertilization due to a defective union of the sperm and ovum, which causes an aberrant proliferation of the trophoblastic tissue that rapidly fills the uterine space explains Monchek and Wiedaseck. Monchek and Wiedaseck describe the “mole” as an edematous, grape-like structure formed by the filling of the placental villi with fluid. “The incidence of hydatidiform mole is 1 per 1000 pregnancies” explains Beena, Jose, Teerthanath and Shetty (2016). The importance of this disease is the loss of pregnancy and the possibility of developing choriocarcinoma

Some symptoms of preeclampsia may include high blood pressure and protein in the urine, occurring after week 20 of pregnancy. Preeclampsia is often precluded by gestational hypertension.

Pre-eclampsia is one of the most common cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality.
