does aflac consider aggressive fibromatosis cancer?
I have recently been diagnosed with aggressive fibromarosis, which the medical community seem to be split on whether it's cancer or not. It causes tumors, aggressively attacks tissues and recurs in 70% of cases (cancer like). The treatment is also the same as if it were cancer. The thing that makes it not cancer is that it doesn't metastasize (spread to other parts of the body.) I have a cancer policy with Aflac that pays out a lump sum if I get an "approved" cancer diagnosis, This would help my family greatly, for obvious reasons. Medical bills are steep, and I can't work at the moment. Does anyone else have any experience with this particular disease? Did your insurance (disability, health, whatever kind) consider it cancer or not?
I don’t know where you would get the impression the medical community was split on whether this is cancer or not, it clearly is not. It is a benign condition. (+ info
How does a parent handle aggressive imaginary friends with a almost 5 year old boy?
Our son has a very aggressive imaginary friend. I do not know if the name would be of help, but he has a pointy fingers and a pointy butt. If you need more info let me know?
How do you mean "aggressive". Is it just that he looks aggressive with his pointy fingers, or that you son seems to fight with him.
If it's just that he looks aggressive then I don't' see any problem at all. Your child is obviously very creative.
If it's that your son seems to fight with him then that's a normal thing too. Imaginary enemies are a good coping mechanism for thrashing out disputes. Children with imaginary enemies are shown to be better at managing their anger and understand individual differences.
The link below provides more information.
Hope it helps. :) (+ info
What are some good non aggressive intervention and Crisis Prevention tips for a hospital ER security guard?
Im a Security guard at a hospital and at times we get patients that are very aggressive and violent. Its my job to keep patients like this from hurting them self or others what I would like to know is some tips that i can use to calm a patients and also behavior techniques that will make me seem less aggressive to the patients. Also if you can give me some signs to look for in patients that will give me a heads up for violent outbursts.
At our place, security goes through an annual training session on dealing with aggressive patients.
i wish all hospitals did the same.
To seem less aggressive, use a softer, lower tone in your voice.
never argue with an aggressive person, as that only escalates the situation.
basically the person wants to be heard--so i would say something like;
"I see you are upset--tell me what's going on and let's figure out a solution'.
To keep them calm, be aware of your body language too--standing over them with your arms crossed, is not a good thing. they already see you in uniform, and for you to stay calm and showing you want to help--will make things easier. Agree with them if they say 'you don't understand', and tell them you do care and want to help.
Signs to look for, in terms of pre-outburst;
clenching fists--swinging arms--pacing around--talking quickly-cursing -rambling on and on--getting louder (with their voice, or stomping the floor, slapping their hands together)
be careful, because sometimes it is the visitor who may go off. Everyone is frustrated--and usual ER visits are about 4 hours long. tension is high, people are tired and angry, etc.
If you can remain calm, speak softly and slowly--and not stand too close, or with arms folded, it should make a difference.
Good luck! (+ info
What's the difference between non-aggressive and aggressive HPV?
I'm more interested about non-aggressive information since there doesn't seem to be any on the web!
The doctor told me it was nothing to worry about as long as I remained healthy and active. I have had the vaccine, and was told I had some trace strains of HPV. Does this mean I'm protected against cervical cancer and warts?
I think what you are asking is what is the difference between low risk HPV types and high risk HPV types? Genital HPV types are divided into two categories. High risk HPV types the found in cancer and low risk HPV types these HPV types are rarely seen in cancers. They are over 30 high and low risk HPV types.
You showed some HPV types. The HPV vaccine does not provide any protection to HPV types you acquired before the vaccine. The HPV vaccine does not provide protection for all HPV types found in cancer or that cause visible genital warts.
You are not protected from all HPV types that cause cervical cancer or cause genital warts. You still need Pap smears as recommended by your doctor. A healthy immune system does seem to help the body keep our acquired HPV types at bay. There is no cure for the virus itself.
GARDASIL is the only cervical cancer vaccine that helps protect against 4 types of human papillomavirus (HPV): 2 types that cause 70% of cervical cancer cases, and 2 more types that cause 90% of genital warts cases. GARDASIL is for girls and young women ages 9 to 26.
GARDASIL may not fully protect everyone, and does not prevent all types of cervical cancer, so it’s important to continue routine cervical cancer screenings. GARDASIL will not protect against diseases caused by other HPV types or against diseases not caused by HPV.
HPV 6, 11, 34, 40, 42, 43, 44, 53, 54, 70, and 74 were considered low-risk types, whereas HPV 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66, and 68 were considered high-risk types (+ info
How to deal with an aggressive 4 year old boy?
I keep this very aggressive 4 year old boy. He screams a lot, throws things, and kicks and hits when he has to go to time out. Any suggestions on how to work on his behavior?
i work in a daycare and so ive dealt with my share of difficult children. you first have to understand where there behavior is coming from and why they are acting out... maybe the child is going through a difficult time at home?!?!?! i always give the child a chance to calm down by asking, what's wrong, why are you so upset, etc. etc.... and i then explain to the child that his/her behavior is not acceptable and that he/she needs to find a different way to let out their frustration. if they still arent co-operating i then force them to sit in thinking time and think about their actions, regardless if they are hitting me, kicking, screaming yelling... i then explain to them that they will not be leaving thinking time until they have calmed down (for some children they may be there for several minutes) and then agree to follow the rules before getting out
but if you see no change in his behavior... i would suggest speaking with his parents and tell them he has become too difficult and you can no longer keep him (+ info

How can I get more aggressive while lifting weights?
When I go to work out with my friends, they tell me to get aggressive and don't be afraid to make some funny faces. I make the funny faces but I can't get super aggressive and mad out of nowhere. Does anyone know how I can get more aggressive and go beast mode while I'm lifting?
think about why you are doing the workout in the first place and think of what motivates you
think of what you will look like when youre all done and then just let go of yourself and go beast mode as you say
just go nuts! (+ info
Are certain cases of colon cancer more aggressive than others?
My dad passed away from colon cancer in december of 2007 only after 9 months. but i read that the survival rates were higher than that. he had surgery,chemo and radiation. i was wondering if certain cases can be more aggressive and harder to treat than others?
98% of colon cancers above the anal verge are adenocarcinomas and although they do vary in aggressiveness it is not drastic. There are other rare types that are much more aggressive. Survival rates are dependent on stage. Stage 4 colon cancer has a 5-year survival rate of 5%. There are those that survive past 5 years and of the other 95% there are those who survive 1 week and others survive 4 years and 11 months. It is difficult to apply these rates to an individual without a good understanding of the disease process and even then it is just one piece of the puzzle. (+ info
Can a ruptured brain aneurysm cause violent or aggressive behavior?
If a person suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm, can this trigger a change in their behavior? There was no violent behavior before the bleeding. After the healing process was basically over, the person became very violent and aggressive and abusive, can this be a side effect of the ruptured aneurysm?
Depends on what part of the brain the bleed is in, but the answer is definitely yes, especially if its in the frontal lobe which controls personality, but it could be anywhere. Hormones are also controlled by the brain and if the bleed is putting pressure on any area that causes an excessive excretion of adrenaline or other hormones that might make him aggressive, that would do it, too.
