I am having white spots on my skin on and near my neck. It is a fungal infection. The colour has grown deeper now. please suggest me something .
I use ladies razor to shave off my arm and leg. Is it not safe to use razor for shaving? Does the skin turn black later? I use razor once a month for shaving.
I am suffering with a skin infection in my legs and thighs. These are from last 6 months. They take the shape of a wound. After a day. And also itches. Round shaped kind of. M taking medicines like itraconazole. Nuforce. They works but when I stop taking them again the problem rises.
I have some kind of skin situation, something happens over the outer layer of the face skin then after some day it peels off (like papadi) and second whenever I go out in direct sun light my face skin turns red and suffers sun burn and then peels off after some day. Please suggest me some effective ready made solution I.e. Any cream or lotion to prevent direct sun light and to get rid off this problem. Thanks.
Adrenal cancer is a rare and aggressive disease that causes abnormal cell growth inside the adrenal cortex. This cancer usually appears as tumors at the outermost layer of the adrenal glands and gradually develops cancerous cells. In the majority of the cases, adrenal cancer is diagnosed only after it has been growing for several years.
While most of the adrenal cancer patients have the common symptoms, often some people feel just fine, unless until their doctors find the presence of cancerous cells in the adrenal cortex through CT scan. Generally, the symptoms of this life-threatening disease depend on three factors, which are:
- The particular type of overproduced hormone
- The tumor producing hormones excessively
- And, type of the tumor
However, it is the overproduction of particular hormones, that makes the majority of the symptoms visible. Below are the common symptoms of adrenal cancer, depending on hormone types that are overproduced during the presence of this disease.
Symptoms of cortisol overproduction
When the presence of adrenal cancer leads to excess production of the cortisol hormone, people start experiencing different types of symptoms. The accumulation of fat behind the shoulders and neck, gradual weight gain in the stomach and chest portions irregular periods, and hair growth on the chest, face and back (in women) are the most prominent ones. One can also suffer from depression, weakness in legs, and easy bruising as other signs of cortisol overproduction.
Symptoms of aldosterone overproduction
Symptoms of testosterone overproduction
When as a result of malignant tumors in the adrenal cortex the production of the testosterone hormone goes to higher than normal levels, it is considered to be overproduction. The voice becoming deeper, excessive invasion of acnes, irregular periods become prominently visible symptoms of this kind of adrenal cancer. Even, excessive growth of body hair or the facial hair and heightened muscle mass are some of its common symptoms.
Symptoms of estrogen overproduction
The growth of the breast in males and the early puberty in females are the most common symptoms of adrenal cancer where the malignant tumors overly produce estrogen hormone. Even decreased sex drive or impotence in males can be considered as its other serious symptoms.
Apart from the above mentioned adrenal cancer symptoms, in some cases, the adrenal tumors become so big that they start pressing the nearby organs which leads to signs of abdominal pain or feelings of fullness in the belly. The moment one identifies having any one of the signs discussed here, he or she should look for medical attention immediately. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.
