Abdominal wall hernia

An abdominal wall hernia is an extension of the intestine through an opening or area of weakness in the abdominal wall. An abdominal wall hernia causes an obvious bulging but little discomfort. Treatment involves surgery to repair the hernia. Abdominal hernias are very widespread, predominantly amongst men. The abdominal wall is thick and solid in most places. Therefore hernias usually arise in an area of weakness where an earlier cavity has closed.

Adenocarcinoma

Practically all adenocarcinomas develop from adenomas. Generally, the bigger the adenoma, the more probable it is to become cancerous. By the time colorectal cancer is diagnosed, it has often been growing for several years, first as a non-cancerous polyp (adenoma) and later as cancer.

Cholecystitis

Cholecystitis refers to an inflammation of the gall bladder. The gallbladder is a small organ situated on the right side of the abdomen, directly beneath the liver. The gallbladder is a storage organ for bile, a fluid important in the digestion. Cholecystitis is often caused by gallstones that block the secretory passageways out of the gallbladder. This causes an accumulation of bile in the gallbladder that can lead to inflammation. Additional causes of cholecystitis include tumours and infection. Cholecystitis can lead to severe complications such as spreading infection and tissue damage if not treated and it requires admission to hospital to be treated correctly. Treatment for cholecystitis often requires removal of the gallbladder.

Crohn’s disease

Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract (inflammatory bowel disease or IBD). Crohn’s disease is an autoimmune disease, meaning that the body’s immune system attacks the intestines, causing an inflammation in the lining of the digestive tract. This inflammation can cause numerous symptoms including abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss and malnutrition.  Crohn’s disease can be very painful and can potentially lead to fatal complications.  Although there is currently no cure for Crohn’s disease, treatments aimed at controlling the symptoms and keeping the disease in remission are established and have proven to be successful in many cases.
