Ventricular septal occupy 15 – 20% of the total number of cases of congenital heart disease. Disease ventricular septal influence many to health and the comprehensive development of the child with many dangerous complications such as growth retardation, heart failure, stasis blood, lung infections, pulmonary hypertension… and can be fatal if not treated promptly.
Disease ventricular septal or there abbreviated name in English is VSD, is a form of congenital heart disease the most popular today.
In the human body, the two ventricles are the main two compartments in the lower part of the heart and they are separated by the septum. In which the left side of the heart will usually pump blood with great pressure and contains more oxygen (than the right) off the aorta to feed the entire body. Ventricular septal defect is exist 1 or more holes is located on the septum between the two ventricles this. If the hole is large it can cause heart failure, lung injury do not recover and lead to death.
The symptoms of ventricular septal your baby often appear after a few days, a few weeks after birth. With a newborn there is ventricular septal defect small hole will have no symptoms. Young with a vent large, long days may cause purplish lips and nails from lack of oxygen, fingers, legs, live drumstick of black blood from the right ventricle goes through the vents mixed with red blood side interior left (Eisenmenger syndrome).
The symptoms of ventricular septal defect in children, including:
Ventricular septal defect in children often has no obvious cause, possibly due to irregularities in the process of developing heart of the baby in the fetus. During pregnancy the mother is infected with the Rubella virus, device, diabetes, drugs, alcohol, or other stimulants be considered as the cause of diseases congenital heart defects. The complications of ventricular septal defect in children include:
● With ventricular septal defect small hole at least when there are complications, children still living and normal development.
The progression of the ventricular septal very diverse. Therefore, the treatment will need to be based on the factors such as hemodynamics, age, lesion anatomy, pulmonary artery pressure response of patients with treatment.
Currently, the FDA (agency management food and drug the United States) only allows performing interventions close the ventricular septal defect through the skin on the patient through small parts, in a ridge or a complication of myocardial infarction.
Specify close the vent with open-heart surgery depending on the location, size, hole information, the patient does not respond to medical therapy, or have diseases of the heart congenital other comes.
The case after surgery, has not surgery or without surgery need complications of infective endocarditis.
Treatment of ventricular septal likely completely cured of the disease if it is detected early and treatment was correct in the medical facility prestigious. Hospital international Vinmec have center heart circuits with specialist pediatric cardiology assume the function of examination, ultrasonography, diagnosis, monitoring, treatment, and rehabilitation cardiovascular for pediatric patients.
The faculty has successfully conducted many heart surgeries, including in children under 5 kg, and the newborns suffering from heart defects in which there is disease ventricular septal. Cardiology children’s hospital Vinmec has a team of specialists, rich experience, great reputation in medical therapy, surgery, interventional cardiology by applying many techniques currently most advanced in the diagnosis and treatment of pathologies of the cardiovascular.
The faculty are linked a comprehensive cooperation with the cardiovascular Institute of the Bach Mai hospital, University Paris Decartes’s hospital Georges Pompidou (France), University of Pennsylvania (Usa)…

Aflatoxin usually are in the food mold is a toxic fungi that is produced naturally by some species of Aspergillus (a type of mold). In addition to causing acute poisoning (doses of about 10mg can be deadly), the mold Aflatoxin and is considered the cause of cirrhosis and liver cancer.
According to research materials of the Bureau of food and drug (FDA) of the United States, mold Aflatoxin operation is very durable with heat. The peanut moldy is roasted with very high temperature will make the mold spores be destroyed, but their toxins still not completely destroyed. Therefore, when moldy it should be discarded, whether processed at high temperature, then eat to still be dangerous.
Toxins Aflatoxin is known to be one of the pathogens of liver cancer most powerful when the diseases absorption of Aflatoxins through the mouth will cause the body contains a total amount of 2.5 mg of Aflatoxin for a period of 90 days and can lead to liver cancer after more than 1 year.
Use food container mold Aflatoxins to cause cancer, however many families still do not understand is this problem with simple thinking is just rub and dry for most mushrooms are all toxic and can be used so many who “procession of the disease to the body”.
In fact, mold Aflatoxins not only toxic because of survive in dry food mold, but also in the persistent of it. Aflatoxin was born, in the form of chemical, so it will not be lost when processed at a temperature of hot or boiling temperatures of 1000 degrees C. scientific Research has shown that, want to remove a part of toxins Aflatoxins are required to a temperature higher than the boiling temperature (temperature roasting, drying from 1500 degrees C to more than 2000 degrees C).
The toxins Aflatoxin to penetrate into the human body will be the liver metabolized to form the intermediate epoxide activation or hydrolysis becomes M1 less toxic. There are at least 13 types of Aflatoxin different in nature, in which Aflatoxin B1 is the shape unique. Aflatoxin G1 and G2 produced by Aspergillus parasiticus. Aflatoxin B1 is produced by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. Aflatoxins M1, M2, is produced and detected in the milk of cows when they eat right foods that contain mold aflatoxin.
Any kind of animal which can be toxic aflatoxin. Adult then there is resistance, better should be its resistance to better, also for children when ingested food contain mold aflatoxin will develop and slow growth.
Aflatoxin when absorbed into the body will attack the main organ is the liver, so it causes liver disease, cancer is mostly. People infected with the toxin aflatoxin , perennial high-risk cancer of the liver and gallbladder cancer.
According to the regulations of the United states, the function of mold Aflatoxin in food animal husbandry and food are FDA recommended safe include:
According to regulation of Vietnam: Vietnam Ministry of health health regulations the content of Aflatoxins maximum limits (ML):
Along with the development of medicine, then there are currently 2 ways that can help testers detect the level of infection toxins aflatoxin in humans:
To the present time, there is no drug which can treat specific toxins aflatoxin. However, the absolute stay away from the foods that contain mold aflatoxin and building diet with full of green vegetables can help reduce cancer risk.
Those who suffer from frequent headaches, signs of dizziness, need to go check because there may be vascular malformations of the brain – disease causing stroke very fast.
Malformations of cerebral vessels is a congenital disease, develop from the fourth week to the eighth week of pregnancy, causing the arteries more direct connection with vein through the capillary network intermediary, so the majority of vascular malformations brain can survive in the brain that less what are the symptoms.
Malformations of cerebral vessels developed over time, exist without symptoms for many years and is discovered primarily in the age of 45 back down in 3 situations: bleeding brain (50-60%); headache, epilepsy (40-45%) or incidentally discovered (5-10%). Some patients are detected quite late (60-70 years old).
Estimate the proportion of people suffering from malformations of cerebral vessels is 18 in 100,000 people.
Complications vascular malformations of brain includes:
About 2/3 of cases of this disease will suffer a stroke before the age of 40. Each year, approximately 4 out of 100 people who have vascular malformations brain will hemorrhage. When hemorrhage risk 15-20% risk of death or stroke, 30% have mental illness, 10% mortality.
Each type of stroke the brain is diagnosed and treated in a different way. Patients whose expression is brain stroke should be taken immediately to hospitals on the nearest to be examined, handled the emergency, respiratory disorders, cardiovascular and CT brain emergency.
If there is bleeding in the brain, the doctor will determine the type of bleeding the brain and predict causes in order to handle properly and timely. If the bleeding parenchyma of the brain due to rupture of small vessels on patients with hypertension, stucco, fiber arteries it would not have to take blood vessels the brain.
Conversely, if the thought of bleeding due to diseases of the blood vessels of the brain, then the need to move patients on as soon as possible to take brain vessels (DSA) and interventional emergency treatment.
The doctor will give the best treatment for you and this will be determined by the size of the malformation and position of it. There are 3 methods of treatment include:
Obstruction intravascular (Endovascular embolization)
In this technique, the doctor will insert a long thin tube into the leg artery and threaded through the blood vessels to the brain under the instruction of radiology images. The catheter is placed in one of the arteries nourishing to the blood vessels deformed and injection fluid embolism, such as small particles, substances like glue, microcoils or other materials, to block arteries and reduce blood flow in vascular malformations. Obstruction intravascular less invasive than traditional surgery. It can be done alone, but usually used before other treatments another surgery to make the procedure safer by reducing the size of the vascular malformations, or reduce the likelihood of bleeding.
The casual form larger and complex structures is usually combination therapy methods. With these cases, doctors often button circuit in advance to reduce the size deformity, then surgery open surgery or radiation.
Depending on the condition and vulnerability of each patient, method and treatment plan will be chosen the most appropriate way.
This way is also known as surgery, radiation or radiosurgery. An X-ray beam, a narrow focus on defects stars for high-dose targeting in arteriovenous malformation of the brain and the rest of the brain is much lower doses. This radiation makes malformation of brain vessels, brain, and closed at intervals of 2-3 years in 80% of patients. The risk of complications of this procedure low. Until vascular malformations brain is completely closed, then the risk of bleeding still.
This is the oldest method to treatment of vascular malformations of the brain. Defects is cut off in the surgery room by anesthesia. Opening the skull, clamping and cutting the blood vessels malformations. Often applied when the malformation rupture caused intracranial hematoma, or mass deformed to cause signs of neurological. The risks of surgery is usually high with respect to malformations of cerebral vessels located in the deep in the brain have important functions.
Besides, there is another option is to do nothing and just monitor the disease. Your doctor may recommend follow-up if they feel the treatment is not safe or detect the disease when you are older.

Cholesterol in the blood increases will adversely affect the body, especially the cardiovascular system. The factors affecting cholesterol is diet, mobility, weight, lifestyle and other factors other fixed.
Blood Cholesterol is a fatty substance always present in the blood cells. Cholesterol in general is always present in all the cell types of the body and is an important component to create a membrane structure, a number of endocrine factors (hormones) and plays many roles other important functions of the body.
However, if there is too much cholesterol in blood is major risk factor leading to coronary disease (underlying cause heart attack levels) and stroke. Blood Cholesterol increased is a condition that occurs when the concentration of blood cholesterol in high levels.
Cholesterol can come from two sources: From the synthetic body and from the food that you eat. The liver and some other cells of the body is where make up about 75% of blood cholesterol and the remaining 25% is due to food supply.
Cholesterol naturally can not dissolve in blood, so that to save more is through your blood, cholesterol must be surrounded by a layer of protein coat in particular, or also known as lipoproteins. There are 2 types of lipoproteins is important:
There are many different factors that affect the levels of both bad cholesterol and good cholesterol.
Animal fats, fast food, carbonated water, or all kinds of food contain too much energy will make increase concentrations of LDL and increased total cholesterol. Diet is a major cause atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, cerebral vascular accident… so, to combat the increased “bad” cholesterol, should build a sensible diet as follows:
Body mass index (BMI) is used to get the body a person is skinny, fat, or balance. BMI is recommended to be between 18.5 to 22,9. BMI from 23 and above is considered overweight, easily lead to increased cholesterol in the blood.
Maintenance mode active, exercising regularly will increase HDL and lower LDL.
A number of the genes in the family have the ability to govern how the digestion and processing of cholesterol. This inadvertently affects the concentration of cholesterol in the blood.
As well as genetic, age, and gender as the factors affecting cholesterol does not change or impact to be. Blood Cholesterol in both 2 world usually begins to increase at age 20. Most women before the age of menopause will have lower cholesterol levels than men of the same age. After menopause, LDL levels tend to rise and cardiovascular risk also increase, respectively.
Bad habits such as smoking, alcohol, stimulants are the factors affecting cholesterol most common, but can from get. Moreover, the smoking cessation, alcohol also helps the body to better health and type minus one of the major risk factors of cardiovascular disease.
To prevent cholesterol in the blood increase, from after the age of 20, should be performed check cholesterol every year 1 times and starting at age 50 should be checked every 6 months for the total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and HDL. Based on tests, the doctor can give advice to adjust diet, increase physical activity or treatment with specific drugs if necessary.
Hospital international Vinmec provides level for client package Management outpatient diabetes – hyperlipidemia for the purpose of assisting customers check out screening the cholesterol levels as well as the disorder, glucose tolerance or blood sugar disorder when hungry….

Hepatitis C type hepatitis caused by virus, can be transmitted when the blood of people infected with the hepatitis C virus enters the body of someone not infected. About 70-80% of those who suffer from hepatitis C without any expression.
After hepatitis C virus in the body, they have the incubation period is quite long (about 7 – 8 weeks), following phase this is the period of onset. The case of hepatitis C acute, usually have distinctive symptoms, only to find there are a number of clinical symptoms as follows:
However, the above symptoms sometimes only mild illness, not to be overlooked, though the liver are in the inflammatory phase very heavy. Stage of disease development can last about 6 – 8 weeks, then the disease will go away without treatment. However, the case of only 15 – 30% of cases. The rest will become healthy people carry the hepatitis C virus (i.e., after 6 months the body is not excreted by the hepatitis C virus) or transformed into people with hepatitis C, chronic.
Hepatitis C is typically transmitted when the blood of people infected with the hepatitis C virus enters the body of someone not infected. Today, most people infected with this disease is due to shared use of needles or other paraphernalia to inject drugs.
Hepatitis C Virus can be transmitted according to the path below:
However, there is no evidence that infected with hepatitis C virus due to mosquito bites or insect bites. Because the disease does not have pronounced symptoms, so most patients don’t realize is that they were infected and could unknowingly let the disease spread in the community.
However, very easy to spread and has many dangerous complications, but hepatitis C is curable if detected early, treatment the right medication and the right way. Treatments popular today is that the drug inhibits the virus in combination with interferon new generation.
Complications first of hepatitis C not to mention cirrhosis of the liver. Many people believe that cirrhosis of the liver occurs due to alcohol-but any condition cause liver damage for many years can cause cirrhosis of the liver and form scar tissue. Scar tissue will take a long time, about 20-30 years to liver damage leading to cirrhosis. If the condition cirrhosis of the liver not treated properly, the risk of liver failure is very high.
When the liver is cirrhosis, due to hepatitis C virus cause will hurt the healthy cells that make up the scar and create the fibrous tissue. They slow the flow of blood through the liver, causing stasis of blood in the veins of the digestive system. In the early stages of cirrhosis often only the expression is very vague, such as fatigue, loss of appetite or mild pain in right abdomen, but sometimes don’t have any expression whatsoever. A common complication of liver cirrhosis is portal hypertension, in which increased pressure in the portal vein, where help transport blood between the organs of the digestive system and liver.
When is cirrhosis of the liver due to hepatitis C, if untreated, the disease will progress increasingly more serious, because the scar tissue due to the virus causing continued development for liver function, impaired walking, long gradually lead to liver failure. Liver failure is manifested by the signs very serious, such as jaundice, yellow eyes, pissing up, limb swelling, ascites, personality changes.
Cirrhosis and liver failure due to hepatitis C virus is the very serious complication and the antiviral treatment is working extremely necessary and important to dispose of the virus to prevent the complications and when was cirrhosis, liver failure, then liver transplantation is the method recommended for use.
In addition to complications of cirrhosis and liver failure hepatitis C virus also causes liver cancer. This is a late complications and the most dangerous of diseases of liver bile. When infected with the hepatitis C virus, the risk of liver cancer won 12 times compared with those not infected and in fact liver cancer usually occurs in people with cirrhosis.
Besides, the elements have the effect of increasing the risk of liver cancer due to hepatitis C, including alcohol abuse, smoking, HIV infection, obesity, high content of iron in the liver.
Hepatitis C in addition to attack and destroy the liver, the complications of the disease also affect other parts and other systems in the body. Because while infected with hepatitis C virus then the can form antibodies to combat, the resistance can this create the reaction caused the harm to other organs of the body such as kidney damage, numbness, tingling, and pain due to nerve damage, joint pain, skin rashes, ulcers. In addition, hepatitis C can also increase the risk of developing other diseases, including diabetes mellitus, depression…
At general hospital, international Vinmec Hai Phong technical Ultrasonic elasticity of liver tissue to help accurately assess the degree of liver fibrosis/progression for the hepatitis C cause.
Ultrasonic elastic tissue of the liver is technically non-invasive, accurate assessment of degree of liver cirrhosis, cheap price. Technique of ultrasound tissue elasticity liver at Vinmec Hai Phong has many advantages such as:

Preeclampsia is a syndrome of pathological pregnancy body serious in pregnancy, is the cause of many obstetric complication, and the most that can threaten the lives of both the pregnant woman and the fetus.
Preeclampsia (also called toxemia) is a serious disorder that usually develops after week 20 of pregnancy, is manifested by symptoms such as edema, high blood pressure and protein levels in urine increase.
Preeclampsia extremely dangerous because it causes many severe consequences for both the mother and the fetus:
In addition, preeclampsia can progress to severe and rapid when progression of syndrome HELLO appearance. This syndrome includes: hemolysis (Hemolysis), elevated liver enzymes (Elevated liver enzymes), platelet reduction (Low platelets).
Previously, preeclampsia was only diagnosed primarily based on the clinical symptoms like edema, hypertension, proteinuria and also only diagnosis is the earliest start in week 20 of pregnancy. However, before the dangerous complications of preeclampsia causes, the need to have a new method that can early diagnosis of preeclampsia is becoming increasingly necessary.
Recently, two elements are of particular interest is PLGF and sFlt-1. PlGF (Placental Growth Factor – factor developed placenta, or also called factor tan create blood vessels) plays an important role in creating blood vessels, the placenta, also sFlt-1 (soluble fms – like tyrosine kinase 1 tyrosine kinase 1 soluble form similar to the fms)) are the receptor elements of cell development, endothelial soluble, have a role resistance to tan create blood vessels. The study indicated in the blood of pregnant women suffering from preeclampsia, PlGF and sFlt-1 modified pretty early before appearance of clinical symptoms.
In women with normal pregnancy, the concentration of PLGF and sFlt-1 changed over the period of gestation as follows: PLGF increased gradually and reached the peak at mid-pregnancy and then up until before birth, also sFlt-1 is relatively stable in early pregnancy and increased in late pregnancy.
For pregnant women at risk of preeclampsia, the concentration of sFlt-1 increased in the blood of pregnant women, on the contrary the concentration of PLGF decreased in comparison with pregnant women normal gestational age, respectively. Therefore, can quantify the concentration of PLGF, sFlt-1 and the ratio sFlt-1/PLGF to early diagnosis of pre-eclampsia from 12 weeks of pregnancy (that is, can detect pre-eclampsia when pregnancy first 3 months).
Finding out the relationship between PLGF and sFlt-1 for preeclampsia meaning extremely important. The pregnant women now completely able to detect early pre-eclampsia to take treatments timely, avoid the unfortunate complications can occur for both the pregnant woman and the fetus.
With the desire to bring for the expectant mother the comprehensive care and safety for mother and fetus during the process of before – during – after birth, hospital, international Vinmec with facility and equipment are modern investment in Vietnam, our team of experts rich in experience in implementing the maternity services package integrates the entire process of examination and necessary tests.
Test quantify the concentration of factor tan create blood vessels in the maternity Package a 12 week can make the pregnant women complete peace of mind before the fear of pre-eclampsia.

Herpes genital (genital Herpes), is a disease of genital infections due to Herpes Simplex virus (HSV) triggers. Disease Virus when enters the body will cause many negative effects to the health of pregnant women, so experts recommend that you learn about diseases genital herpes to take measures to prevent and handle if needed.
Genital herpes is a disease transmitted sexually (STD). This STD causes sores herpes – these blisters, pain, (swelling filled with fluid) can break off and flow free. About 16 % people in age from 14 to 49 suffering from this STD.
Two types of herpes simplex virus cause genital herpes: HSV-1 (commonly causing disease of the lips) and HSV-2 (usually causes genital herpes).
The virus enters the body through the mucous membrane. The mucous membrane is the thin layer of tissue lining the openings on the body. They can be found in the nose, mouth and genitals.
Once the virus was in the body, they will combine into the cells and then remain in the nerve cells of the pelvis. The Virus tends to multiply and adapt to the environment live very easily, this makes the treatment become difficult.
HSV-1 or HSV-2 can be found in people with secretions infected with bacteria such as saliva, semen, and vaginal secretions.
The appearance of the blisters is considered to be marking the outbreak of a outbreak. The outbreak will first appear as early as 2 days after virus infection, or as late as 30 days later.
General symptoms in males include blisters on the penis, scrotum, or buttocks (near or around the anus).
General symptoms in females include blisters around or near the vaginal, anal, and ass.
General symptoms in both men and women include:
The general symptoms of baby born with herpes (transmit the disease through normally) include ulcers on the face, other organs and genitals. Babies born with genital herpes can develop very serious complications such as blindness, brain damage, even death.
So, pregnant women should be notified about the status of the infected with genital herpes during pregnancy tell your doctor to perform the preventive measures of virus transmission to the baby during childbirth. The method usually applied is that the baby will be born through a caesarean section instead of normal delivery through the vagina.
Doctors can usually diagnosed as genital herpes by examining visually herpes sores. In addition to increased precision, the doctor can give you to perform more tests clinical.
Blood test can diagnose herpes simplex virus (herpes simplex) before undergoing an outbreak of the disease. Book an appointment with your doctor if think have been exposed to genital herpes, even if you do not encounter any symptoms.
Treatment can reduce the risk of outbreak of disease, but it can’t cure herpes simplex virus.
Drug resistant virus can help speed up healing time of ulcers and reduce pain. Drugs used in the treatment when appeared the first signs of an outbreak (tingling, itching, and other symptoms). Those who suffer from disease flare may also be prescribe drugs to reduce the likelihood of disease back in the future.
Use mild cleanser when a shower or bath in warm water. Keep the infected area clean and dry. Wear cotton clothes wide to keep the body, especially the genital area is comfortable.
Pregnant women disease STD often worry about the possibility of infecting the child. Genital herpes can infect the baby through the birth the vagina. So, it is important to tell your doctor if genital herpes in pregnancy.
The doctor will provide the information you need to know during and after the birth of the baby. They can prescribe the prescription treatment safe during pregnancy to ensure the baby born is healthy. They can also suggest pregnant women choose childbirth over caesarean section.
Genital herpes also can cause the pregnancy complications as miscarriage or preterm birth.
Relationships safe sex and use condoms every time you have sex with someone would help prevent the spread of genital herpes and other STDS.
There is no cure for genital herpes, but this disease can be controlled with medication. The disease lies in the form of latent (sleeping) in your body until the favorable factors for the disease appear. Outbreaks can occur when you become stressed, sick, or tired.

Cough is a manifestation will encounter on most of the lung cancer patients. However, this sign also appears in many other diseases. So, to differential diagnosis the disease correctly, in addition to symptoms cough, lung cancer patients also have signs warning any other?
Cough symptoms merely occur on 75% of cases of lung cancer. However, coughing up new blood is symptoms do patients have to go to hospital. Symptoms of cough in people with lung cancer have the following characteristics:
The most dangerous is blood condition out of control, my blood was gurgling out not hold. The disease can be fatal in young circulatory level due to blood loss more acute. In the case of blood coming out more then have a state of shock due to blood pressure drops. Examination of lungs shows have ran moisture, crackles, ran the bronchi…
Half of patients with lung cancer are felt chest pains. Patients often describe feeling heaviness in the chest region. If chest pain and constant is symptoms bad signal status invasive into the bone and the intercostal nerves by tumor. Signs of pain of the shoulder can be symptoms of lung tumor shape Pancoast’s (tumor on top of lung).
Patients may manifest disorders of breathing, usually breathing fast and short. A few cases of wheezing due to large tumor clogging the trachea.
Or occur in patients with lung tumor type Carcinoma (carcinoma) cell spikes. Signs fingers drumstick will go away quickly after removal of the tumor.
Join in 4 – 12% of patients with lung cancer. These lesions often occur at the far end of the long bones. These symptoms usually disappear quickly when the tumor is completely removed. However, surgery cut nerve number 10 at the top near the can reduce pain in pathological bone joints, although not removing the primary tumor.
Pleural effusion recurred quickly after fisting, smoking is bad sign expression, for status, metastatic to the pleura. Pleural fluid color is signs suspected tumor has metastasized into the pleura.
About 5% of cases the disease occurs this condition and is the sign of the spreading tumor into the mediastinum. Radiation therapy may give good results with half of the patients.
Occupy from 1 – 8% of patients with lung cancer. Hoarseness is the result of the phenomenon of tumor invasive directly into the nerves lameness in reverse. Metastasis to the regional lymph nodes neck happens from 15 – 20% of patients and if palpable tumor on the scalene is definitely up to 85%.
Happening from 1 – 5% of patients with lung cancer and is the sign just points the tumor was invasive into esophagus.
Occurs when there is metastasis of tumor to the liver, there is about 35% of patients die of liver metastases. More rare is the condition pneumothorax when tumors spread beyond the visceral pleura.
The carcinoma of the bronchi – the lungs often causes disturbances in the endocrine, including intensity glands the adrenal cortex, increases blood calcium and carcinoid syndrome.
Endocrine disorders most commonly encountered in lung cancer is Cushing’s syndrome (caused by strengthening the adrenal cortex) met in cancer form cells of barley. The patient has the clinical signs such as mental disorders, or coma due to hyponatremia. Tips for these patients is the need to limit the amount of water use down below 1,000 ml/day and adjust the amount of sodium salt. In the case of cancer cells spikes, the patient may suffer increased calcium blood and mental disorders.
Occurs in 15% of cases of cancer of the bronchi of the lungs, especially cancer form cells of barley. Disease neuromuscular disorders can be divided into 2 types, one type is derived from the cause inflammation of the muscles, remaining types of neurological origin which causes loss of feeling and reduced motor control.
According to scientific studies, degeneration of the cortex and the transmission path of the spinal cord is the cause of neuromuscular disorders encountered in carcinoma of the lung. Tumors in the lungs, food into the plexus arm and ribs, causing pain to the patient. In this case, the cancer cells are invasive into the mediastinum on the plexus arm and the sympathetic ganglia of the neck. Patients appear the symptoms of pain in the shoulder area, arm, armpit, and syndrome Horner (eye side the lesion was indented in eye, side disease red because of vasodilation).
In addition to the symptoms mentioned above, when visiting digital can hear the hiss at the location of the tumor. Symptoms most common is syndrome 3 up: decrease murmur alveoli (at the tumor location); type chisel; vibration stick up ( when is pleural effusion). Can see the lymph node metastases when carefully observed for the supraclavicular, neck and armpits.
The proportion of people with lung cancer are on the increase according to the age and speed of industrialization. The majority of cases of lung cancer are not detected early due to expression is not obvious, easily confused with other pathologies. Therefore, when there are any signs suspected to be lung cancer, the patient should visit the clinic at the medical facility credits to get accurate results for the condition of his health.
Pack of lung Cancer screening is implemented in general hospital international Vinmec with the diagnostic methods modern images will help accurately detect lung cancer type, remove the confusion, errors in the diagnostic process.
