पेट में विकसित होने वाली गाँठ एक ऐसी समस्या है जो कई बार परेशानी का कारण बन जाती है. पेट में बनने वाली गाँठ को कुछ लोग रसौली भी कहते हैं. दरअसल इस बीमारी में पेट के अंदर किसी अंग में गाँठ बन सकती है. आपको बता दें कि पेट में बनने वाली गाँठ की समस्याएं ज्यादातर महिलाओं में देखी जाती है. दरअसल महिलाओं की शारीरिक बनावट ऐसी है कि उनके पेट में बच्चेदानी स्थित होती है. यही पेट में गाँठ की वजह भी बन सकती है. आपको बता दें कि रसौली दरअसल पेट के अंग विशेष का नाम है जिसके आधार पर पेट की गाँठ को नाम दिया जाता है. जैसे यदि बच्चेदानी में गाँठ बनी तो उसे बच्चेदानी की रसौली, यदि गुर्दे में वही तो गुर्दे की रसौली इत्यादि की तरह नामकरण में उसकी सहायता ली जाती है.

पेट के गाँठ का पता लगाने का तरीका-
चिकित्सक पेट में होने वाली रसौली का पता लगाने के लिए विभिन्न प्रकार के टेस्ट व जांच करते हैं. इन्हीं जाँच और टेस्ट के आधार पर इस बात का पता लगाया जाता है कि पेट की गाँठ किस अंग विशेष में हुई है. इसके लिए चिकित्सक मरीज का HB, ESR, TLC/DLC, यूरिन टेस्ट, पेट का एक्सरे, अल्ट्रासाउंड, IVP (गुर्दे के रंगीन एक्सरे) सीटी स्कैन और एमआरआई स्कैन इत्यादि करके इसका पता लगाते हैं. इसके अलावा पेट के किसी अन्य हिस्से या अंग में यदि पेट की गाँठ उत्पन्न हुई है तो उसको जानने के लिए चिकित्सक द्वारा पेट को कई भागों में बांट कर उसका पता लगाया जाता है. पेट की रसौली से ग्रसित व्यक्ति जो चिकित्सक के पास अपनी परेशानी लेकर जाता है तो डॉक्टर का प्रयास यही होता है कि वह इस बात का पता लगाएं कि रसौली पेट के किस हिस्से में हुई होगी और इसके लिए जांच करनी पड़ती है.

पेट की गाँठ के लक्षण-
जैसा की हमने आपको बताया कि पेट की गाँठ को पेट के अंग विशेष में उत्पन्न होने के आधार पर ही विभाजित करते हैं अर्थात पेट के जिस हिस्से में गाँठ उत्पन्न होता है उसका लक्षणों को भी उसी के के आधार पर बताया जा सकता है.

आइए निम्नलिखित बिन्दुओं के आधार पर इसे ठीक से समझें -
खाने की थैली में यानी आंतों में उत्पन्न पेट की गाँठ के लक्षण: - इसमें रोगी को खाना निगलने में परेशानी का अनुभव होता है. कब्ज से पीड़ित होने की संभावना इस बीमारी का एक लक्षण है. इस दौरान मरीज के पेट में दर्द का अनुभव भी हो सकता है. इस दौरान मरीज के पाचन क्रिया भी कमजोर हो जाती है.

गुर्दे से संबंधित पेट की गाँठ के लक्षण: - इस दौरान मरीज को पेशाब करते समय जलन का अनुभव होता है. मरीज के पेशाब में खून आने की भी संभावना बनती है. इस दौरान पेट में दर्द भी हो सकता है.

लीवर एवं पेट की गाँठ के लक्षण: - इस दौरान रोगी की पाचन क्षमता प्रभावित हो सकती है. ये भी हो सकता है कि मरीज को पीलिया की बीमारी पकड़ ले. यही नहीं इस दौरान पेट में दर्द भी हो सकता है.

बच्चेदानी में उत्पन्न होने वाले गाँठ के लक्षण: - किसी महिला के बच्चेदानी में गाँठ होती है तो उसकी अधिक मासिक आने की संभावना बनती है और इस दौरान पेट में दर्द भी आम बात है.

पेट की गाँठ के प्रकार-
पेट की गाँठ की बीमारी को हम आमतौर पर दो हिस्सों में बांट सकते हैं. ये दोनों ही वर्गिकरण इसके लक्षणों के आधार पर किया जाता है. आइए जानें कि ये दो प्रकार कौन से हो सकते हैं.

1. कैंसर: - यदि पेट की गाँठ बहुत आकार में बहुत बड़ी है और स्वभावतः बहुत स्वभाव में सख्त हो और इसके साथ ये पेट से चिपका हुआ महसूस होता हो तो ऐसे गाँठ के कैंसर होने की ज्यादातर संभावना बनती है.

2. साधारण: - इस प्रकार की पेट की गाँठ अर्थात रसौली सामान्य होती है. इनसे कैंसर होने की संभावना तो नहीं होती लेकिन फिर भी इसका इलाज किया जाना आवश्यक है. इसका इलाज दूरबीन विधि द्वारा ऑपरेशन करके आसानी से किया जा सकता है.

Chlamydia In Men And Women - How To Treat It?

Chlamydia In Men And Women - How To Treat It?

Chlamydia is a very common STI caused by bacteria. Those patients who are suffering from chlamydia usually don't see the side effects in the early stages, which makes it that much more difficult to diagnose it. Chlamydia can bring about a lot of severe problems in the later stages. These include not being able to get pregnant later or causing dangers in pregnancies. This disease is often easily spread since it shows no noticeable symptoms and can be passed on the partner very easily. 75% of the infection in women and 50% of the infections in men cannot be noticed and are without any symptoms.

Symptoms: Since the side-effects are not always visible, when they do happen, they are normally recognizable within one to three weeks of contacting and include the following:

In women these are:

  1. Vaginal discharge with strong odour
  2. Abnormal bleeding during periods
  3. Excruciating periods
  4. Stomach pain with fever
  5. Pain while engaging in sexual activities
  6. Burning around the vagina
  7. Pain during urination

In men:

  1. Cloudy discharge from the tip of the penis
  2. Excruciating pain while urinating
  3. Burning around the opening of the penis
  4. Swelling and pain in the testicles

Treatment: Chlamydia is easily treatable. Since it is bacterial in nature, it's treated with anti-infection agents. Following are some of the most common treatments for chlamydia in men as well as women:

  1. Azithromycin is an anti-infection generally recommended in large dosage, yet the dosage may be spread out more than 5 days.
  2. Doxycycline is an anti-microbial that must be taken twice every day for around one week. Your specialist may recommend different anti-infection agents.
  3. Regardless of which antibiotic you are given, you should follow the dosage guidelines properly to ensure the infection is cured completely. This can take up to two weeks, even with the single-dosage medications.
  4. Try not to engage in sexual relations while your treatment is going on. Unfortunately, you can get chlamydia again in case you're uncovered, regardless of the fact that you've had it and it was treated.
  5. Women with extreme chlamydia infection may require hospitalisation, intravenous anti-microbial and painkillers. Your doctor might use a few tests to diagnose chlamydia. He or she will probably take samples from your urethra and cervix and then send it for further analysis. There are also other tests that include urine samples for presence of bacteria. Sometimes, even blood tests are taken depending upon your symptoms or in case the doctor is not able to diagnose it with previous methods and tests.

After taking the medication, individuals should get a follow-up on the treatment after three months to make certain that the disease is cured. This is highly important in case you are not sure whether your partner has been treated or not. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Causes And Symptoms of Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency

Causes And Symptoms of Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency

Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency or EPI is also known as pancreatic deficiency, a disorder where the pancreas is unable to produce sufficient amount of enzymes that are required to digest food. The pancreatic enzymes help to break down and absorb nutrients from the food in the small intestine. So, this disease causes nutritional deficiencies.

Causes of Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency :

This condition is generally caused as a complication of other diseases because EPI develops only as a result of severe damage to the pancreas. The following reasons can cause EPI:

  1. Inflammation of the pancreas: After surgery in the pancreas, stomach or the intestines, there may be inflammation in the pancreas as a post-surgical complication. A high content of triglyceride fat in the blood can also cause pancreatic inflammation and hinder the secretion of the enzymes.
  2. Chronic Pancreatitis: In this disease, the pancreatic ducts are swollen and blocked and so the digestive enzymes cannot be passed into the small intestine. This condition is often caused by a heavy consumption of alcohol.
  3. Cystic Fibrosis: The digestive fluids and enzymes become thick and sticky and block the passageways of the pancreas and other organs like the lungs and the kidneys. This can obstruct secretion and passage of enzymes afterwards.
  4. Shwachman-Bodian-Diamond syndrome or SBDS: SBDS is an autosomal recessive genetic condition where enzyme producing pancreatic cells is not formed properly. This rare disorder causes a number of associated disorders like bone marrow diseases, skeletal defects and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency.

Symptoms of Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency:

Symptoms of EPI often appear in the middle stages of the disease when the process of absorption of nutrients has already been affected. The common warning signs are:

  1. Digestive problems like gas, diarrhea and indigestion because the food remains mostly undigested.
  2. Severe and frequent stomach pain in the lower abdominal region
  3. Greasy stools due to the excretion of undigested fat
  4. Rapid loss of weight and body mass due to malabsorption of nutrients
  5. Constantly feeling bloated and full even if you have not eaten anything
  6. A general sense of fatigue and exhaustion
  7. Excessive bleeding from small wounds because protein deficiencies hamper blood clotting
  8. Pain in the muscles and bones
  9. Increased susceptibility to infections of the body system
  10. Anemia
  11. Joint pain
  12. Abnormal swelling of the limbs or edema 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gastroenterologist.
