Abdominal cavity tumours can have many origins. It can be caused by malignant activity in the guts but can also originate in the stomach, liver, or in the pancreas. If the tumour is visible in the lymph nodes it could even be a haematological (hematopoietic) problem. Therefore, in general, it is difficult to say which specialist we should primarily seek out for the treatment of abdominal cavity tumour but probably our best chances are with an oncologist or a haematologist.

An allergy is a hypersensitivity of the immune system to one substance in the environment. In some cases, the immune system overreacts when it detects foreign substances called allergens. An allergen can be for example grass, weed, tree or its fruit, flowers, pollens, house dust and dust mites, as well as various foods of different origins. However, the overreacting immune system may also have a positive impact of our organism.

The term 'rheumatoid arthritis' or more commonly known as polyarthritis is an autoimmune disease which can emerge acutely, unforeseen or gradually developing the chronic inflammation. An autoimmune disease which turns against and attacks the organism's own cells and tissues. This is actually the inflammatory disease of the joints which can occur in acute or chronic form. Arthritis is nothing more than the inflammation of the 'synovial membrane' or mucous membrane that protects the joints. The tension of the joint capsule, its constant swelling and the pain are caused by the significant increase in the amount of synovial fluid. This inflammation also damages the cartilage.

Autoimmune diseases have more than 80 known types. They are considered one of the world's leading diseases that cause disability and death. Normally, the immune system protects the organism against external impacts that mean threats for the body (viral, bacterial infections, development of tumors), it stores the energy for destroying those. However, it happens that this operation is disturbed, and so, the essence of the disease's mechanism changes, the body's immune system attacks itself.

We can distinguish two types of brain tumours. In secondary brain tumours, the tumour gets into the brain (so not a result of brain cells) whilst in primary brain tumours the tumour develops in the brain. These are therefore two different types of tumours but we can state that metastatic tumours are the most dangerous. In such cases the primary objective is to avoid and prevent the spread of metastases.

Bone cancer (specifically bone and the ligament neoplasm) is a relatively rare. It only originates from 0.5-1% of all cancers. The primary tumours (tumours which actually originate in the bone tissue) are somewhat 30 times rarer than secondary tumours (tumours which originate in another organ and spread) which are the result of metastases of tumours from other organs. This means that most bone cancers are not primary but secondary metastatic tumours.

Bladder neoplasm, also known as bladder cancer is the tumorous growth within the walls of the bladder, most commonly forms within the inner epithelial layer which surrounds the inside of the bladder. These tumours can be benign or malignant (carcinoma and rarely sarcoma). 90% of all bladder tumours cancers are so called transitional cell cancers (TCC) or transitional cell tumours (TCT). In women, the most common urogenital malignant neoplasm is bladder cancer. Bladder cancer is 2 to 3 time more common in men than in women.

Breast cancer is most common within woman however the disease does just effect woman. It is relatively rare for men however it is not unheard of. The chances of recovery form breast cancer are increasing thanks to the ever increasing amount of research into its development and course. Self check help early diagnosis and therefore increasing the chances of survival.

Nowadays, beside cancer the diseases of the circulatory organs, the heart and the blood vessels occur most frequently. However, people's health today is in risk especially because of the heart and vascular diseases. Regarding the appearance of cardiovascular events acute heart attack, stroke, heart failure and coronary artery disease are the most outstanding. Heart diseases can be divided into three main groups: congenital heart defects, inflammatory heart diseases and heart disease after coronary artery disease.

COPD is a very insidious, serious disease which is usually irreversible. If the process has started, it continues forward and the lung’s functions get successively worse. Exhalation gets harder and harder, the lung’s tissues start to get impaired as well as the risings that are responsible for the air metabolism. During the impairment the smaller risings die and bigger risings form which is very harmful for the lungs.

Our body's fundamental building blocks are cells which multiply by dividing and therefore ensuring our bodies growth and maintaining normal body functioning. When a cell in our body gets damaged or becomes old it gets destroyed and its place is taken by a fission generated cell of the same type. During our lifetime around 1022 cell divisions take place in our bodies. Despite the fact that the process which copies genetic information is strictly regulated it is still possible that the genetic code gets disturbed during the multiplication process, also known as a mutation.

There can be numerous causes for the development of colon cancer but mostly our lifestyles play a deciding factor in it. The regular consumption of red meats and high insulin levels can be auspicious for the development of cancer but an active lifestyle; regular exercise can help in reducing these risks. Therefore colon cancer is also heavily dependent on our surroundings. All those methods that reduce insulin levels in the body also reduce the risk of developing colon cancer.

For normal cell functioning to occur our body requires energy, this energy is released during the breakdown of glucose in a process called respiration. A hormone called insulin regulates the absorption and storage of glucose in our body cells. Insulin is a pancreatic hormone, which is responsible for the maintenance of normal blood sugar levels.

Reflux is one of the most common diseases affecting the digestive system. Its cause is the back flow of stomach acid from the stomach into the esophagus; its symptoms can be heartburn and/or acid regurgitation. The chances of the disease can be increased by obesity, excess alcohol, coffee consumption, smoking and certain medications (e.g. anti-depressant and anticholinergic drugs) as well as the consumption of white bread and social stress. Exercise and fruit consumption reduced the risk of having reflux.

Ewing’s sarcoma initially develops in bone tissue and it’s a representative of a larger class, which is part of the neuroectodermal tumor cell’s family that primarily develops from the primitive nervous system. 10% of all primary bone cancers and 1-2% of all childhood cancers are Ewing’s sarcoma. Unlike other bone cancers it doesn’t show either bone or cartilage structure since it doesn’t develop from those cells. The tumor cells are small, round, featureless and superficially resemble lymph node cells.

The stomach is a hooked shaped organ located between the esophagus and intestines. The main parts of the stomach are; the cardia (mouth of the stomach), the dome filling the upper curvature of the organ called the fundus which always contains air, the gastric body and finally the gastric antrum (antrum=cavity, cave) and the pylorus (pyloric=gate guard) follow. The two walls of the stomach meet at the two edges and allow the distinction between the large and the small curvature. A large part of stomach originating tumors originate in the upper third of the stomach, which spreads in a lot more aggressive manner than those tumors that originate in the lower portions of the stomach.

Gynaecological cancers can originate in any of the inner (vagina, cervix, corpus, the uterus surrounding tissue, fallopian tubes, and ovary) or outer (pudenda) parts of the gynaecological system. Most of the causes for cancers of the reproductive system are jet unknown but 90% of the development of cervix cancer and certain tumours which form on the pudenda are caused by certain strains of the human papillomavirus, (also known as HPV) which results in year long lasting infections.

It is known from written documents from 2700 B.C. that gout has already been recognized as a distinct disease by the Egyptians. The more than 4000 years old description of gout is still apposite. The appearance of the disease is closely related to the lifestyle, eating and drinking habits of the patients with gout. Until the modern age, gout was almost exclusively the disease of upscale societies. Because of their wealth they could afford to consume excessively alcohol and meat.

The word “hepatitis” originates from the Greek word “hepar” and the world “-itis” which means inflammation and literally translates to the “inflammation of the liver”. Hepatitis C can be caused by numerous pathogens; it normally develops as a result of viral infections. The viruses that cause hepatitis are represented by the letters of the alphabet; hepatitis A, B, C, D, E, G are viruses that considerably vary from each other in microbiological properties, structures and cause the illness through different mechanisms.

The kidney stone is one of the most common diseases in the world. In many cases, the real cause of the problem remains hidden and it’s only revealed late, in worse cases it’s revealed when the stone already got to the ureter and causes severe pain.

Nearly 3% of all adult malignant tumours are kidney cancers. The kidney is a bean shaped organ around 15cm in length. Blood can pass through the blood supply rich kidneys up to 100 times a day. This means that the kidneys filter out 1 litre of waste materials which later leaves the body from 1700 litres of blood. Because the kidneys are one of the most important organs responsible for the removal of wastes the development of kidney cancers cannot be differentiated from the waste materials in the body.

The infection is only spread by ticks belonging to the ‘Ixodes’ family, meaning that it is not sexually transmittable and blood transfusions also does not help spreading it. The symptoms sometimes spontaneously cure themselves: that means that the body won the fight against the infection. It is much more likely thought that without treatment, the patient’s state worsens. Lyme disease can only be stopped with an antibiotics cure started in time.

There are two types of lung cancers which can be distinguished as small celled (SCLC) and non-small celled lung cancers (NSCLC). Small celled lung cancer is normally cannot be operated as it behaves completely differently: it is normally diagnosed in advanced stages and generally it is a malignant cancer of the bronchial and the lungs. Metastases form very rapidly all around the body and usually in the brain. This condition is quite difficult to treat. The primary risk factor for lung cancer is smoking and the secondary is the RADON originating radioactive radiation.

Lymphomas are the cancerous diseases of the lymphatic system but currently we know very little about the nature of the cell damage. Lymphomatic illnesses show a great range in terms of appearance, malignant severity, clinical pictures and also in the course of the illness. Generally with lymphomas 2 illness-groups can be distinguished, the Hodgkin and the non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The name of the illness came from the discoverer of the disease the English doctor Thomas Hodgkin.

Migraine is a very special type of headache which is mostly characterized by a strong headache affecting one half of the head. It occurs in very long-lasting attacks. In best cases, it occurs only once in our lives but in the worst case it may occur 6-8 times a month. The recurrent attacks may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound.

The primary tumour of liver cells is called hepatocellular carcinoma (also known as malignant hepatoma). Malignant hepatoma is currently the 5th most frequent malignant cancer for males, 7th for females and compared to other malignant cancers it is currently ranked 3rd in terms of death. Its occurrence is linked significantly to geography, ethnicity and age.

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease whose origin is not completely known by science. Since temporarily it’s not entirely clear why it develops. It’s not known why the processes of nerve cells get ruined in the brain but it’s known that multiple sclerosis is a very progressive disease, it’s in progress and worsens gradually. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, inflammatory disease of the white matter of central nervous system. It damages the neurons and their surroundings, the so-called myelin as well. It mostly occurs in young adults and it may lead to disability due to the irreversible tissue damage in half of the cases.

The chances of oesophageal cancer and adenocarcinoma rise by 10% every year. This is all happening despite using better and more effective medications when it comes to the treatment of reflux. Therefore, it is not accidental that doctors and scientists have started an intensive research program relating to this, as oesophageal cancer most commonly develops because of reflux. Reflux is a common illness and its cause can be found within its risk factors. Alongside genetics, other factors can contribute to the development, such as social stress, obesity, the consumption of white bread, smoking and the consumption of excess alcohol.

There’s a theory about you are what you eat. Since our nutrition basically determines our state of health, our inner and outer well-being as well. If we take this idea seriously then surely we’re in a big trouble. Overweight is a common problem worldwide which is considered a mass disease by today. We have to know that this disease is not only an aesthetically problem but also have serious consequences. Actually, overweight means that a person has a great amount of visceral fat. So the scale, definition of obesity not BMI determines the best rather than the presence of visceral fats.

Osteoporosis is not only a disease of an older age; there can be many reasons for its development. Early on, there are no symptoms; the first sign can be a broken bone, caused by a minor fall. When it’s in a far-gone state, it can make one’s life significantly harder. Osteoporosis is reduced bone matter; which usually affects the spine, femur, pelvic and wrist bones. It can also cause decreased height or a contiguous stoop, because when the osteoporosis is severe, the vertebras can crack under the body’s weight.

Prostate cancer is one of the most widely spread illnesses nowadays. It primarily effects the ageing generation but its development isn't ruled out in younger generations either. The treatment of prostate cancer isn't easy as normal procedures involving hormone-therapy has numerous side effects. The use of medicinal mushroom extracts is definitely advised for prostate cancer as the wanted results can be achieved without the use of traditional drugs.

Melanoma is the most common skin cancer within the white population. In summer period it is more than important to talk about skin protection. Melanoma is usually asymmetric, its edges are uneven, and its colour is non-uniform and multi-tone. Its diameter is usually more than 5 mm and its size is continuously increasing. It is important that we know our current birthmarks and notice the formation of new pigments. If we experience something like this we should definitely seek the opinion of a dermatologist.

The thyroid is the biggest endocrine glandule in the human body. It is shaped like a butterfly, situated in front of the larynx and consists of lobes. It usually weighs about 20-40 grams; women have slightly bigger thyroids than men and its size shrinks with old age. Its functions are operated by a hormone called TSH which increases the functions of the mitochondrions and is necessary for the normal development of the nervous system.

Unfortunately, the occurrence of severe intestinal tract inflammations is becoming more and more common. Bowel diseases, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are considered as chronic diseases that affect the patient's whole life. Ulcerative colitis may occur of any age but most often it occurs between 15 and 30 years of age, and at the same rate in women and men. At least five new cases are reported from 10.000 residents per year
