  • Stage 4 Reflective Essay

    When I was in third grade my grandfather was diagnosed with stage four carcinoid cancer. Stage four essentially means that it has reached the body 's lymph nodes and thus it can infect nearly any part of the body. While this diagnosis was bad, it never hit me how bad it was until sophomore year when he appeared to have suffered from a stroke. We got lucky however and it was Bell 's Palsy, and while that was definitely better than a stroke it was still worrisome, this was the first time I realized just how bad this was. Then the bombshell hit, my papa was diagnosed with melanoma cancer in his left arm, and as a result had to have all his lymph nodes in that arm removed, and began a new experimental form of chemotherapy alongside what he was…

    or spread to distant areas of the body. Breast cancer can spread through the lymph system, which includes an individual’s lymph nodes, lymph vessels and lymph fluid throughout the body. If cancer cells spread through an individual’s lymph nodes, there is a higher chance that the cancer cells could have spread to other parts of the body. (American Cancer Society:2016) Some individuals do not have any signs of having breast cancer and don’t know until after a routine mammogram. Signs include a new…

  • Oral Cancer: A Case Study

    3.6 Management 3.61 Treatment Oral cancer is a localised disease that most likely infiltrates adjacent bone and soft tissue and tends to spread to regional lymph nodes in the head and neck region. It is essential to carry out a thorough examination which includes, inspection, palpation of oral cavity and neck; distant metastasis is quite unlikely. Imaging modalities such as CT and MRI are commonly used to investigate the extent of spread of oral cancer to adjacent tissues including bone and…

  • Intrathoracic Lymphatics: A Case Study

    there (Schraufnagel, 2010). While the superficial plexus drains the visceral pleura and adjacent layer of subpleural tissues the remaining parts of the lung is drained by the deep plexus (Brotons et al., 2012). The subpleural lymphatics were occasionally found to have direct passages to the mediastinal nodes (Riquet et al., 1989), which explains the occurrence of skipped metastasis in around 15% of primary lung cancer cases. The deep plexus consists of lymphatic capillaries which fuse forming…

  • Elephantiasis Research Paper

    Introduction Elephantiasis or also called Lymphatic Filariasis is a tropical parasitic disease that affects the lymph nodes and vessels. The disease was first discovered in the year of 1588 by the name of Jon Huygen Linschoten while he was exploring the Western India region. During his time, he noticed that the Indians legs were the size of elephants, where the name Elephantiasis came from. Even though the death rate is not high, but this disease is quite deadly. this paper will be discussing…

  • Sensor Network Case Study

    Terrestrial WSNs: - In Terrestrial WSNs, nodes are distributed in a given area either in a pre-planned manner (sensor nodes are placed according to optimal placement, grid placement, 2-d and 3-d placement models) or in an ad hoc manner (sensor nodes are randomly placed in the target area by dropping it from plane). After all battery power is limited and it cannot be reenergized, terrestrial sensor nodes must be provided with a maximum power source such as solar cells. Underground WSNs: - In…

  • P Wave Deflection

    Once the P wave initiates the signal, the R wave is the first upward deflection after that. Anyone can easily recognize it on the electrocardiogram (ECG). That is because it is the largest one out of all the waveforms. The R wave corresponds to the depolarization of the left and right ventricles. It does not need the Q wave to be the first deflection at all. Also, note that there can be multiple R waves. Throughout the paper, it will discuss all the wave functions, specifically the R wave, any…
