I have been diagnosed w/simple hyperplasia is a D&C a good idea?had a hystoscopy, get a hysterectomy or not?
I'm confused about what step to take next? One Dr. suggests hysterestomy or hormones the other says D&C then decide about where to go from there. The first Dr.says D&C will not be any more beneficial for info purposes than the hystoscopy I had which showed simple hyperplasia.
To prevent Endometrial Hyperplasia from becoming a cancer, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove the uterus (hysterectomy) or treatment with hormones (Progesterone) and regular follow up exams. (+ info
Can Hyperplasia of Prostate Affect Sexual Life?
Can Hyperplasia of Prostate Affect Sexual Life?
Yes! BPH is the acronym used and it normally restricts the flow of urine but it can also restrict the flow of semen. If it's a severe case it can lessen the pleasure of ejaculation and even make it somewhat uncomfortable or painful. (+ info
What medicine to take for bph(Benign prostatic hyperplasia)?
none, unless you are having problems. meds that shrink the prostate contain estrogens, which have other issues in a male body. yes, they shrink the prostate, but can also cause sexual problems or developing breast tissue. doctors only use them in cases where the enlarged gland is obstructing urine flow or causing pain. also, dont assume BPH if it isnt a doctor saying that. you can't diagnose yourself safely. dont assume it is one thing or another, because the same symptoms can be prostate cancer or other issues.

What is a adrenal hyperplasia ? & how dangerous is it?
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a group of inherited disorders involving abnormal production of the steroid hormones — cortisol, aldosterone and androgen — by the adrenal glands.
These disorders are due to a defect in one or more of the enzymes needed to make these hormones. CAH is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. This means that a child must inherit one defective gene from each parent in order to develop the disease.
There are many types of CAH. Signs and symptoms depend on the particular enzyme involved and how severely it is impaired. One type causes a life-threatening cortisol deficiency shortly after birth. Another type causes menstrual irregularities and excess facial hair in adult women.
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia may also cause:
High blood pressure in infants and children
Early or delayed puberty
Excessive male hormones in females
Infertility in females
A doctor can confirm a diagnosis of CAH by blood tests, which measure levels of cortisol, aldosterone and androgen. CAH is best managed by a specialist familiar with the disease, such as an endocrinologist. Treatment is directed at returning hormone levels to normal with long-term hormone therapy. If you have a family history of CAH, you may benefit from genetic counseling (+ info
The basis of this question is "Is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Disease an acute or chronic disease?"?
I am not quite clear sure how to distungish an acute disease and what is a chronic disease ...i know that acute diseases are short term and chronic disease are long term ..simply...thank you in advance
Acute conditions are severe and sudden in onset. A chronic condition is a long developing condition where symptoms may worsen over time. BPHD is a chronic condition. If the enlargement causes the man to be unable to void urine, he can develop acute urinary retention as a result. The BPHD may not need treatment, but the urinary retention will. The man will still have BPHD, though, unless you remove the prostate- even if you do successfully treat the retention problem. Asthma is a chronic condition, the asthma attack is an acute problem. Hope this clears it for you. (+ info
Has anyone here have atypical hyperplasia?
I found out that I have atypical hyperplasia that is magliant. Has anyone had that, and has it turned into benign cancer?
First, I'm sorry for your diagnosis.
Atypical hyperplasia is, by definition, a benign condition in which cells have abnormal features and are increased in number. Atypical hyperplasia *can* be triggered by increased demand for that tissue or organ; for example - chronic inflammatory response; hormonal dysfunction; or neoplasia. Or it may be triggered by no obvious cause at all.
Having said that, even if the atypical hyperplasia is not cancerous, it does increase your chances for getting cancer later.
If your hyperplasia has developed into a malignancy, it is something else. For example, if of the breast, then breast cancer, if of the uterus, then endometrial cancer, if of the cervix, cervival cancer, and so forth. Your treatments at this point depend on where the cancer is located and how invasive it is. I trust you are working with a skilled oncologist to maximize your successful outcome and recovery.
Subsequent to that, there is no such thing as a benign cancer. Cancer is, by its very nature, malignant.
I hope you feel better soon and everything works out for you. Good luck. (+ info
How similar are PCOS and non-classical congenital adrenal hyperplasia?
For almost 14 years it's seemed as though I've had PCOS. One doctor did suggest a possible adrenal disorder instead. I just had lab tests done and this doctor doesn't think I have PCOS(though I've been on Yasmin for years, could that make a difference in the tests?). So I looked up adrenal disorders and CAH came up.
Any ideas of where to look or where to go from here(I'll bring this up at my next ob/gyn appt but I was just curious until then...).
First of all these 2 conditions differ greatly in the causative factors and therefore are treated very differently. CAH is the result of an enzyme deficiency and should be easy to rule out with testing, it is most common in Ashkanazi Jews.
PCOS is known to be related to the insulin/glucose regulation in the body. PCOS is also though to be genetic, although not every woman with PCOS has a known geneic marker for it.
The symptoms of non-classical CAH are similar to PCOS and include rapid growth and premature puberty in early childhood, excessive hair growth, irregular menstrual periods, acne, and sometimes, infertility in either males or females.
As part of the standard diagnostic procedure for PCOS most physicians will run an adrenal function test (mine did) in order to rule out the less likely adrenal issues. Birth control pills should not have an impact on Adrenal testing but will have in impact on your hormone levels, lining thinckness and number of cysts in your ovaries.
If you were diagnosed as having the presence of multiple cysts in your ovaries accompanied with other symptoms of PCOS (hair growth, absence of periods etc.), glucose tolerance, insulin intolerance or elevated testosterone levels then most likely your initial diagnosis of PCOS is correct. However if you were never tested for adrenal issues you should be, as the treatment for PCOS and non-classical CAH differ markedly. Current reccomendations are that a diagnosis of PCOS should only be made after ruling out other possibilities. (+ info
Does anyone know what a gingival graft costs?
I need two of them done on lower molars.
This is done by a periodontist who is a specialist. The fee would vary from state to state. For 2 molars I would think around the $500 range, but that is pretty much a guess. Gum surgery is usually in the $1000 range depending on the teeth involved and this is less invasive. The price may include a splint that protects your palate tissue (the donor site). (+ info
I was told during a biospy of my breast that I had atypical hyperplasia. Please help me?
I heard that there is a high risk of getting cancer with atypical hyperplasia. I am taking tamoxifen, but is that the answer? What should I do, or what can a Dr. do to find out if it has turned cancerous?
Atypical hyperplasia in breast is associated with increased risk of developing breast cancer. Some studies showed that tamoxifen reduce that risk. Tamoxifen seems to make sense especially in patients with family history of gene associated with breast cancer. Tamoxifen also gives certain side effects such as hot flash, blood clots, stroke and endometrial cancer.
Your doctor should already tell you about the follow up care. They probably want to see you back for exam and mammogram at least every year or two.
Good luck. (+ info
A recent hysteroscopy has shown microglandular hyperplasia. What does this mean.?
I have been told that no malignant cells have been seen but that I need to see an oncologist urgently. Why do I need to see an oncologist if there are no malignant cells?
hyperplasia isnt normal either dear. it means there r too many cells in ur uterine lining.. its not cancer but stil it cud become tht later on. it depends on ur age n the pathology report.
try to read up on the topic n write down all the q's tht come to u on a piece of paper b4 u c ur doc. he/she wil answer them.
take some1 along with u like ur mom or sis or husband.. (+ info
