Gallbladder cancer

Gallbladder cancer begins in the gallbladder. The gallbladder is a little organ on the right side of your stomach below your liver. The gallbladder supplies bile, a digestive fluid produced by the liver. Gallbladder cancer is exceptional. When gallbladder cancer is diagnosed at its most primitive stages, the chance to restore health is good. Gallbladder cancer is not easy to diagnose since it often shows no signs or symptoms. The fairly hidden position of the gallbladder makes it easier for gallbladder cancer to grow without being detected.

Hirschsprung’s disease

Children affected by Hirschsprung’s disease are born with a disorder of the large intestine, resulting in problems with bowel movements. In Hirschsprung’s disease, a portion of the child’s large intestine lacks certain nerve cells responsible for controlling the muscular activity in this portion of the digestive tract.  This can result in constipation and problems with absorbing nutrients from food.  As a result of the lack of bowel movements, a further characteristic of Hirschsprung’s disease is that the large intestine becomes enlarged at the affected site.  In mild cases of Hirschsprung’s disease, the disorder may not be detected until later on in life. Treatment of Hirschsprung’s disease involves the surgical removal of the affected portion of the child’s large intestine.  This treatment is often an affective way of dealing with the disorder.

Hypospadias

Hypospadias are one of the most common birth defects in males.  Hypospadia refers to a condition whereby the opening of the urethra - the tube that connects the urinary bladder with the penis - is situated on the underside of the penis rather than at the tip.  Hypospadias are generally corrected surgically within the first year of life with a high rate of success.  If other birth defects are also present alongside hypospadia or in severe cases of hypospadia, more complex treatment may be required.
