If you regularly attend treatments designed for pregnant women during pregnancy, you can prevent the deterioration of oral hygiene during pregnancy and subsequent breastfeeding.
Most women, when they hear the term epidural anaesthesia, think of alleviating pregnancy and childbirth pains. Fewer people are aware of the use of this procedure in gynaecological surgery, and there is a lasting way to relieve this type of pain in patients with tumours.
There are two forms of analgesia that are very common nowadays. The mechanism of procedure to reduce the childbirth pains is different from, for example, the procedure used in orthopaedic surgery.
Cervical cancer is the second most common malignancy in women after breast cancer, so cervical cancer screening is one of the most important screenings for women on a regular basis. Most often it occurs between the ages of 30 and 60.
It usually develops very slowly and usually has no symptoms at an early stage. The first symptoms usually occur when the developing tumour has already filtered through the cervical muscle and/or spread to the surrounding tissues.
What are the symptoms that may alert you to the presence of cervical cancer?
In the field of ultrasound diagnostics, great progress has been made in the last 20-30 years. The benefits of this are also utilized in the field of gynaecology.
Gynaecological ultrasound and pregnancy ultrasound are fundamentally different from each other.
- Gynaecologic ultrasound is a vaginal ultrasound, which allows the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus and cervix to be checked.
- The purpose of ultrasound screening during pregnancy is to monitor foetal development and to screen for certain developmental abnormalities in time.
Detection and removal of skin tumours requires close cooperation between the dermatologist and the surgeon. Let’s look at the ways and steps to surgically remove suspected skin lesions.
Go for dermatological screening every year!
Early detection is very important as a first step, and dermatologists recommend removal of suspected lesions during yearly screening.
A group of skin tumours does not, or only rarely, produces metastases, such as basal cell carcinoma and spinal cord carcinoma, which affect the older generation, especially those over the age of 60. melanoma, which originates from pigment cells and affects a very large number of young people (one of the leaders in the population under 40), is an aggressive type of cancer and often produces metastases. The incidence of melanoma is increasing by 3% per year. The chance of its development in our lifetime is 2.5%.
Removal should be done by surgeon!
Hepatology is a medical specialty dealing with liver and biliary tract diseases. Most liver diseases can remain asymptomatic for a long time, only the increase in so-called liver function laboratory values call attention to it. If it causes symptoms, it may initially be characterized by weakness, abdominal discomfort, loss of appetite, nausea, pain under right ribs. Advanced liver disease has the typical symptoms of jaundice, increase in abdominal circumference, appearance of star-shaped vasodilatation on the skin of the chest, reddening of the palm.
Because of the few symptoms, regular screening is very important, especially for those with family history of liver disease, working with chemicals or taking liver-damaging drugs.

You may be allergic! Mainly patients with hay fever visit ophthalmologists during this period with very similar symptoms: itching of the eyes, redness, swelling of the eyelids and (even) face. Very often, in more than 40% allergic conjunctivitis also develops in these patients.
The ophthalmologist will take a detailed medical history as a first step in the examination, which will include co-symptoms (such as sneezing, runny nose in the case of allergies) and their occurrence over time. This is followed by an ophthalmic examination, which includes visual acuity testing.
Infectious diseases of this type are transmitted from one person to another through sexual contact. Don not accidentally think that this is just a problem for the young generation “living licentious life”! All ages are affected and it is also a mistake that only people who frequently change their partners will get these diseases: an infected partner is enough to make us sick.
The problem is that many people are asymptomatic, only carriers, and are not even aware that they are infectious. If we have symptoms, we should investigate their cause as soon as possible, because it is not possible to determine which pathogen is the cause of the disease. Don’t expect the problem to resolve itself. Depending on the type of disease, the symptoms may temporarily diminish or even disappear, but they will certainly come back as the infection persists. In this case, it is also true that we should not delay the treatment because the later the doctor sees us, the harder and longer the therapy will be.

As the spring turns to summer, more and more people are coming with “cystitis” complaint. The wording is not so clear: there are those who have urinary tract infections, while others mean vaginal infections on it. But one thing is certain: the occurring vaginal discomfort, or urination complaint, leads the woman to a gynaecologist or urologist. But what do we mean by it?
Many immunological factors may play a role in the failure of childbearing success. Various autoimmune diseases can cause impregnation disorders and early miscarriage. Diagnostics of these diseases are made difficult by the fact that they often do not cause symptoms, thus their suspicion arises at first when the patient is intent on becoming pregnant. Rheumatologic and immunological examination is recommended in case of multiple abortion and infertility. In 0.5%, immunological problems are the cause of miscarriage.
