Due to the scientific advancement in medication, many doctors become dependent on it “fixing” problems in patients such as diagnosing children with behavior disorders, medicating injured athletes, and healing the elderly. Medicine is the science and practice of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of a disease. Medication is supposed to be specifically used for a person with any disease or illness. The most common medications used are ADHD medications, opioids, and Xanax. These prescription drugs don’t start out “bad” or addictive, and that is where
Symptoms of Hurthle cell carcinoma are similar to those seen in other types of thyroid cancers. These include: • Appearance of a lump at the neck • Voice change that does not get better • Shortness of breath • Sore throat • Difficulty swallowing • Persistent cough not caused by a respiratory problem Part 3: What Causes Hurthle Cell Carcinoma? The exact cause of Hurthle cell carcinoma is not known. However, scientists believe that damaging changes or errors in the genetic material (DNA) in the cells may be involved. Damage or alteration in the DNA causes malfunction in biochemical processes that may lead to uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells, which develop into malignant tumors.
Another contributing factor is treatment of hyperthyroidism. If the non-invasive methods do not work, there are antithyroid medications that can prevent the thyroid from producing excessive amounts of the hormones T3 and T4. There is methimazole, propylthyiouracil, potassium iodine and sodium iodide-i-131 systemic just to name a few. Doctors or pharmacists may also suggest Beta Blockers as they can reduce the rapid heart rate, palpations and high blood pressure that most
What are the treatment for Osteosarcoma? Chemotherapy is one of the process in treating cancer like osteosarcoma by using drugs. The drugs are commonly given into a vein or artery and can grasp and eradicate cancer cells overall the body. Chemotherapy is also known as the best treatment for the osteosarcoma patients. Most osteosarcomas don’t appear to have spread beyond the main tumor when they are first found.
They are also used to prevent, treat, or cure diseases, like cancers or heart diseases. The unhealthy cells are removed and edited to be healthy again and then put back into the body to reproduce more good cells. These procedures aren’t very dangerous to they could help most people, but most clinical trials weren’t successful. This is why GMH and gene therapy is still largely experimental. It’s also largely expensive.
When patients are included in their decision making of their own care and treatment, they tend to have better outcomes. Cancer should not be generalize because cancer means something different to everyone and everyone experiences cancer differently. Therefore, a cancer patient medical care should be individualized and approached from a multidisciplinary team perspective. When diagnosing and staging cancer, the medical care should be individualized. However, there are
However, with the new immunosuppressives, Tissue typing became less important and in the case of Cadaveric Kidney transplantation this is not done. • Shortage of organs • Complications (Surgical or Medical) Complications after transplantation may be related to the anesthetic, the surgery itself, bleeding, infections, vascular thrombosis and urinary complications. Transplantation is not possible without immunosupression drugs , except in identical twins and this makes the recipients vulnerable to infections (bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungi). There are also very vulnerable to opportunistic infections. Herpes zoster and CMV (Cytomegalovirus) are common among transplanted patients as other infections.
There are also some health care providers that are also trained in Herbal Medicine. They serve to create treatment plans for patients who prefer herbal therapeutic treatments. Herbal Therapy although so commonly used is said to be very dangerous to health as it too has side effects , it can go as far as to cause death to an individual. Therefore, the WHO recommends that it is used with precaution or as recommended by trained medical personnel. The majority of the world's population relies on herbal medicine as its primary form of treatment, and indeed most modern drugs originate from isolated phytochemicals (phyto – plant: a phytochemical is a chemical constituent of a plant).
These programs can also benefit individual patients by improving clinical outcomes (Bebell and Muiruz 2014). Currently, patients infected by superbugs are treated either by radical surgery which may lead to amputation, or intense use of strong antibiotics which can cause many unwanted side effects (e.g. liver damage, diarrhoea, allergic reaction). Also pharmaceutical companies are not likely to invest in new drugs for superbugs as this has little financial profit for the companies making the creation of newly developed antibiotics with fewer side effects almost impossible (Pogson 2012). However, if the spread of superbugs is controlled by the AMS programs, no new drugs are needed and less aggressive treatments can be used for such bacterial infections.
