It’s time to different between a general pain and a pain caused by a cyst

Kidney SpecialistHave you ever felt some pain in your lower body or abdominal region? If it lasts for a day or two, it is fine but if he pain is persistent then it’s time to get yourself checked. There are n- number of causes for the pain and one of them could be kidney cysts. Yes, this is rare but it does happen. What are cysts? They are fluid filled sacs and many cysts together are called as poly cysts. These cysts which are formed in the kidney is usually non-cancerous but it does causes a lot of pain! No patient will visit a kidney specialist first.

He will visit a general physician and if the physician feels that there is something wrong with the body he will ask the patient to consult a kidney specialist. Once you do, he will check all possible symptoms of the pain and if he feels anything about the cysts he will ask the patient to get his sonography done and once he has a clear picture, he will initiate the treatment for the same.

The treatment as a whole for these cysts isn’t done but the complications attached to these cysts are generally managed. A person should be careful that he should not consume any anti-inflammatory medicine like ibuprofen or any other because it might worsen the case. A kidney specialist makes a list of do’s and don’ts for the patients to give them a healthier lifestyle! Such a boon to have excellent specialists! By: Dt. Trishala Chopra

Old wine in a new bottle- clinical pathology

Clinical Pathologist in Delhi

Specialised medical personnel governing almost all of the unique aspects of the path-labs are termed in general as Clinical Pathologists. Under this umbrella fall various laboratories, blood banks, and clinics for various aspects of the wide branches of pathology. And all this falls under what is known as Clinical pathology.This is further divided into stems of the medicinal body- including clinical, anatomical pathology, hematology, hematopathology, microbiology and blood banking. More enhanced technologies are developing, entailing proteomics, molecular diagnostics, etc. Most of these terms however, are overlapping aspects. Many areas are common to the varied aspects.

That branch of clinical pathology that is by far concerned with the diagnosis and testing offluids from an individual’s body, is known as clinical chemistry. Then, there is clinical hematology, the umbrella term used to denote all aspects of blood-banking. Hematopatholgy and microbiology all fall under the same category too. Often, pathologists, including clinical pathologists, practice both, anatomical and clinical pathology, which is sometimes broadly known as general or generalised pathology.

The study of samples in clinical pathology can fall under two big headings: macroscopic and microscopic, that is to the lay man, that which can be seen with the naked unaided eye, and that which cannot. The direct visual examination and assessment of the given or obtained sample, which may be a liquid, is the primary and usually most significant indication for the researcher or the doctor involved. The characteristics of the liquid, also help to ascertain the previously obtained analytical assumptions and conclusions.

It is important to note that even though clinical pathology has been around for a fairly long time, yet it has loads to develop and broaden. They undergo monthly, weekly, even daily maintenances to make sure that they perform to their optimum level and that they are as efficient as the concept was meant to be when it was first developed.

Leprosy- Losing Sensation of pain but not in a good way.

Leprosy in Delhi

One thing that all human beings fear is the sensation of pain. If asked about one superpower that a person would like to have, the answer would most likely to be the power to not feel pain. But in some cases, this ‘power’ is the worst thing that anybody could wish for. Just ask a person whose minor injuries have turned into full blown infections due to his inability to get it treated as he did not know that he had an injury. That is the case with a person infected of leprosy.

A granulomas disease caused by a bacteria Mycobacterium Leprae, it causes granules to form in the respiratory tract, eyes and skin. The body loses sensation of pain which gives rise to various secondary diseases. The adverse effects go as far as a numb limb or a loss of a body part. Weakness and poor eyesight are also some of the adverse effects of this disease.

Contrary to popular belief, leprosy, while being contagious, does not spread like wildfire. It can be transmitted only when a healthy person comes in contact with the cough or nose fluid of an infected person. Although it used to be difficult to detect leprosy in the years gone by, now, thanks to science, it has become easier to not only detect, but also treat leprosy in a better way. Diagnosis tests like DNA and treatment in the form of Multi Drug Therapy(MTD) ensure that leprosy is no longer the disease it used to be. By – Vatsal

Clinical Pathology- Profession even a doctor relies upon


Ask a kid in a class about his ambitions and the two most likely answers are always a ‘Doctor’ or an ‘Engineer’. But what kind of doctor? In most cases, the answer is again the most popular of choices, a cardiologist, and neurologist, and orthopedist. Rarely can a kid be heard saying that he wants to become a ‘Pathologist’. The general perception of pathology in the younger generation is not very bright. It is because whenever pathology comes up, our minds immediately go to testing feces, urine and other unhygienic body fluids.

But the branch of pathology is much more than just a bunch of doctors testing the urine of sick patients.Clinical pathology is known by various names in every country. For example, laboratory medicine, clinical biology, laboratory medicine etc. But the importance of it is never understated. In fact, in medical industry, there is a widely prevalent saying that “If hospital is the church, then a pathologist is its priest”.

This field of medicine is so important mainly because of the fact that the diagnosis that others doctors make for a patient are more often than not based on the results of pathological tests. If there are not enough skilled personnel in this field of study, it seriously hampers the doctor’s chances of successful treating a patient.Clinical pathology is an interesting field of medicine and should be known among the people not as an unhygienic profession, but as a life saving profession. Because that’s what it is. By – Vatsal
