Medical Conditions Diagnosis. Common Medical Conditions, Ailments and Diseases in Singapore. Are you searching for a Medical Symptoms Database? Asia MD’s Diseases & Medical Conditions Database is a cross-referenced index of human disease, symptoms, signs, and treatments.

How do you tell what you facing could be an underlying medical condition or perhaps only just a case of being too overworked or just exhausted?

Medical Condition Lists & Diagnosis

Do you know your strains from your sprains? Your rhinovirus from your rhinitis? Your hyperlipidaemia from your hyperhidrosis? Do you feel hot and sweaty all the time? It might not just be the climate. Got a temperature? Feeling feverish? The proper medical term for this is pyrexia. You’ll probably know gastroenteritis as the stomach flu. The classic symptoms to look out for are diarrhoea, vomiting, stomach pain and pyrexia (you know what that means now!).

新加坡胃癌风险、成因和症状

{:en}新加坡是一个胃癌中风险国家。在新加坡人口中,胃癌是男性第七大常见癌症,女性第九大常见癌症。根据《新加坡癌症注册局50周年专著(1968-2017)》,与马来人和印度人相比,华人男性患胃癌的风险最高。2008年至2012年间,新加坡华人男性胃癌的年龄标化发病率为13.4/10万人。 在Telegram上关注我们,可接收最新消息:https://t.me/AsiaMDsg 胃癌的成因 胃癌的发生与以下因素有关: 幽门螺杆菌感染是胃癌最重要的病因。幽门螺杆菌是一种螺旋状生物,可附着于胃粘膜中。这可能会导致消化性溃疡,还可能引发胃部变形,导致癌变。 胃癌家族史或结肠癌、乳腺癌等相关恶性肿瘤家族史。 经证明,食用过咸、腌制和盐渍食物会增加患胃癌的风险。 盐会损害胃粘膜并引起病变,并进一步恶化成为胃癌。 吸烟, 烟草会增加患胃癌的风险,特别是靠近食道的贲门癌。 症状 早期胃癌可能毫无症状,也可能只有腹胀或消化不良等轻微症状。因此,胃癌的迹象通常出现得很晚。而晚期胃癌的常见症状有: 上腹部疼痛和不适 早饱(少量进食后有饱腹感) 呕吐、体重下降、食欲不振 偶尔表现为剧烈疼痛或出血(由于血液变化而出现吐血或黑便)的急症。 一般来说,晚期胃癌的治疗效果不佳。 早期检查 与日本和韩国不同,新加坡没有全国性内窥镜筛查项目来及早发现胃癌。  然而,如果您最近出现“胃痛”或上述任何症状,而且以前没有做过检查,应咨询家庭医生,看看是否需要做胃镜检查。这是一种简单检查,仅需10分钟,将一个灵活的细探头通过嘴插入胃部,可显现出全部症状。 本文经斐瑞医院Surgi-TEN专家中心普外科医生陆志明医生审核。 {:}{:zh}新加坡是一个胃癌中风险国家。在新加坡人口中,胃癌是男性第七大常见癌症,女性第九大常见癌症。根据《新加坡癌症注册局50周年专著(1968-2017)》,与马来人和印度人相比,华人男性患胃癌的风险最高。2008年至2012年间,新加坡华人男性胃癌的年龄标化发病率为13.4/10万人。 ...

是否有必要征求第二诊疗意见?

{:en}经过几天的紧张等待,可怕的诊断结果出来了:你的医生通知你,是癌症。当你在努力消化这个足以改变人生的消息时,医生却又告诉你,他在考虑昂贵或最新的实验性治疗方法。你要静心自问:我应该再去征求第二诊疗意见吗? 这要视情况而定。新加坡卫生部医药总监麦锡威副教授表示,如果你与医生关系良好,相信对方会在最大程度上考虑你的利益,相信他是胸有成竹的,而且会为你提供足够的信息来做出知情治疗决策,那么就没有必要去征求第二诊疗意见。 在Telegram上关注我们,可接收最新消息:https://t.me/AsiaMDsg 然而,麦锡威副教授认为,如果你认为第一位医生可能没有提供全面信息,那么寻求第二位医疗专业人士的第二诊疗意见是一个好主意。 如果你不确定自己是否全面掌握了信息以支持做出决策,你的医生无法保证他具备足够的能力和专业性来提供建议和治疗,或你怀疑对方有动机损害你的利益, 那么就有理由征求第二诊疗意见。 信任问题 麦锡威副教授通过Zoom接受了AsiaMD.com的采访,表示:“如果你怀疑得到信息不完全准确或可能比较片面,那么征求第二诊疗意见就是合情合理的。这并不一定是因为出现了信息错误,而是因为当信息呈现给你时,你可以拥有一定程度的选择权。” 如果专家推荐某种治疗方法时只宣传其优点而不提缺点,患者可能会质疑医生是否有其他动机,没有在最大程度上考虑患者的利益。麦锡威副教授表示,人们可能会想,医生之所以强烈推荐某种治疗方法是因为他得到了某些好处,或是他从第三方那里获得了经济利益。他说道:“在那种让你感到不适的情况下,确实无法与医生建立起信任关系。” 寻求第二诊疗意见的其他理由 即使你的医生没有做过或说过任何令人怀疑的事情,出于以下原因,你还是应该自己做一些调查研究: 进一步了解自身情况和可选方案来提升自己的能力,成为一个知识化程度更高的医疗保健消费者,面对对自身健康有长久影响的问题,能更好地做出明智的决定。 一些研究表明,获得额外的医学意见十分有益。休斯顿退伍军人事务中心在2015年的一项研究中发现,通过寻求第二诊疗意见,约37%的患者的治疗过程发生变化,15%的患者的诊断结果发生变化。 面对会产生重大影响的医疗决定,如您认为主治医师的意见可能比较片面,可以征求可靠的第二诊疗意见。6791个病例显示出诊断和治疗变化。项目临床工作人员评估第二诊疗意见造成诊断结果和治疗方式变化、明朗化或最终确定的相关患者所占百分比。资料来源:《美国医学杂志》(American Journal of Medicine) 2017年的一项研究显示,在梅奥医学中心寻求第二诊疗意见的患者中,21%的人得到了全新的诊断结果,66%的人被认为部分诊断正确,但需要由第二名医生改进或重新定义诊断结果。 寻求第二诊疗意见十分常见,医生也经常会询问同事的看法,尤其是在面对复杂病例的时候。 如果向医生索要病历和病理切片以便向其他人咨询,不要担心会冒犯医生。 确认第一次医学诊断和病理解释是否准确以及推荐的治疗方案是否合适可使患者安心。 可能会获得最新的临床治疗方案。 寻求第二诊疗意见可能会让你进一步了解除最初推荐的治疗方法之外,是否还有其他可供选择的治疗方法。应当了解到,有些替代疗法可能并不符合护理标准,也不在你所在国家医疗保健财政系统补贴范围之内。这些非标准化治疗方法可能只在临床试验和调查研究的背景下才能进行,因为其疗效或副作用或成本效益尚不明确。应谨慎看待这些新治疗方法,并仔细听取不同医生的建议。根据病情严重程度,如果标准化治疗方法不能达到令人满意的效果,这些非标准化治疗方法值得考虑,但必须做好准备接受这些新治疗方法可能带来的不确定性。 ...
