Gastroenterology

Ulcerative colitis

An inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes long-lasting inflammation and ulcers (sores) in your digestive tract; it only affects the innermost lining of your large intestine (colon) and rectum. This can cause discomfort in your abdomen and frequent bowel movement.

Crohn's disease

An inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus. Abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, and weight loss are just some of the symptoms. It is said that those with Crohn’s are at a greater risk of having bowel cancer.

Prostate Cancer

This is the development of cancer in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Usually slow growing, cancer cells may spread from the prostate to other parts of the body. If left untreated, it may lead to blood in the urine, difficulty and pain in urinating.

Central Precocious Puberty

It is the manifestation of early or advanced pubertal changes, growth acceleration and rapid bone maturation. The requirements for the diagnosis of CPP include a combination of clinical signs, bone age, pelvic echography in girls, and hormonal data.

Bleeding Oesophageal Varices

This occurs when swollen veins (varices) in your lower oesophagus rupture and bleed. The veins in your lower esophagus can swell up when blood flow to the liver is reduced. This may be due to scar tissue or a blood clot.

Bowel Cleansing

An important requirement for a successful colonoscopy is emptying the contents of the colon. Colonoscopy is a procedure which can spot small colon cancers while they are treatable and before it spreads to other parts of the body. It can also detect and remove polyps, which are small growths that can develop into colon cancer.
