Are you living with chronic idiopathic constipation? This guide to things will help you.
Your bladder is the hollow, muscular organ in your lower belly where urine is stored. When you urinate, the muscles of your bladder contract and push urine out through a tube called the urethra. Bladder cancer starts when cells in the bladder start to grow out of control. These cells can form into a bladder tumor. They can also spread outside your bladder to lymph nodes and to structures far from the bladder, like your bones, lungs or liver. This is known as metastasis.
Colorectal cancer is cancer that develops in the last part of your digestive tract — your colon and rectum. Your colon is the last five or six feet of your large intestine. Your rectum is the last six inches. Colorectal cancer occurs when cells of the colon or rectum start to grow out of control and form a tumor. Often, the cancer starts in a non-cancerous (benign) growth called an adenomatous polyp. Once cells become cancer, however, the polyp becomes a malignant tumor. A tumor can grow and crowd out normal cells. Cancer cells can also spread away from the tumor to other parts of the body, like the lungs or liver. This is called metastasis. Almost all colorectal cancers start in cells that make mucous to lubricate the inside of the colon and rectum. This type of cancer is called adenocarcinoma.
Head and neck cancer is a group of cancers that develop in or around the mouth, throat, nasal passages or voice box (larynx). Like other cancers, head and neck cancers form tumors. These tumors are made of cells that grow out of control and crowd out normal cells. Head and neck cancers can also spread (metastasize) to other parts of your body. Most head and neck cancers start in cells in the moist linings inside your, nose, mouth or throat. This type of cancer is called squamous cell carcinoma.
Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is a movement disorder caused by medications. The word “tardive” means slow, and “dyskinesia” means involuntary movement. People with this disorder may have uncontrolled, repetitive movements of their face or body. The most common drugs that cause TD are antipsychotic drugs used to treat schizophrenia. These drugs block a chemical messenger in the brain, called dopamine. Schizophrenia is a serious, long-term mental health disorder that changes the way you think, feel and behave. About 30 percent of people who need to take an antipsychotic for a long time will develop TD. However, you also could develop it even if you don't have schizophrenia. For instance, TD can occur in people taking other drugs and in people taking an antipsychotic for a condition other than schizophrenia. TD can occur months, years or even decades after taking an antipsychotic drug. Tardive dyskinesia occurs when medications cause changes in the brain that control movement. When a drug blocks dopamine for a long time, nerve cells called dopamine receptors can become very sensitive. This extreme sensitivity may cause TD.
