   Angiosarcoma TreatmentsAngiosarcoma Treatments
 
Angiosarcoma is a unique type of cancer. It appears in the inner lining of blood vessels and can occur in any region throughout the body; however, it is most commonly found on skin and in the breast, liver, and tissues. In rare cases, it occurs in the heart and lungs. Subcutaneous angiosarcoma arises beneath the surface of the skin.
 
 Pseudomyxoma Peritonei Diagnosis
 
Pseudomyxoma Peritonei DiagnosisPseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is difficult to diagnose. For diagnosing PMP as well as verifying the development of the disease, several tests are available. PMP can often be found during treatment of or operation performed for other medical problems.
 
 
 Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis Differential Diagnosis
 
Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis Differential DiagnosisSlipped capital femoral epiphysis or SCFE is often not diagnosed until weeks or months after its onset . Its symptoms of vague pain in the groin or hip, or the thigh or knee, may be shared with many other hip disorders. Some of the more important differential diagnoses are discussed briefly below:

 Neurogenic Bladder Symptoms
 
Neurogenic Bladder SymptomsNeurogenic bladder is a type of urinary tract dysfunction caused by damage to the nerves that control retention and release of urine. Signs and symptoms of neurogenic bladder can vary widely between individuals. Some of the major signs of neurogenic bladder are recurrent urinary tract infections, leaking urine, overactive bladder, frequent urination, urinary retention, and underactive bladder.
