It is crucial to get medical help to someone who is having a medical emergency as soon as possible. In this post, we'll look at the symptoms of two diseases that, if left untreated, would require immediate visit to an emergency department.
A pulmonary embolism (PE) is a potentially fatal lung disease. Clots in the bloodstream can be fatal, and that is why pulmonary embolism is such a serious medical emergency. On the other hand, the death rate can be drastically reduced with prompt medical attention. Preventing pulmonary embolisms is possible by avoiding the formation of blood clots in the legs.
Pulmonary emboli, a type of blood clot in the lungs, can lead to cancer if left untreated. In the United States, pulmonary embolisms account for a significant portion of cancer-related deaths. These clots can block blood flow to the lungs, which can eventually cause death.
Quick or erratic heartbeat, dizziness, lightheadedness, sweating excessively, and passing out are all symptoms. Fever, Please see a doctor right away if you experience any pain or swelling in your legs.
In the lichen kingdom, we find lichen simplex chronicus (LSC). Scratching, rubbing, or a mix of the two is what causes lichen simplex chronicus, a continuous, irritating infection of the skin's top layer. However, it may be hard to break the cycle of lichen simplex chronicus.
Scratching the affected area provides temporary relief, but the chronic itching that follows is often unbearable for the person who suffers from it.
There is some evidence that links lichen sclerosus to lung cancer, however most experts agree that the risk of developing cancer can be greatly reduced with the right care and frequent checkups.
In order to prevent the onset of any other potentially dangerous conditions, you should see a doctor as soon as possible for a diagnosis and treatment. After doing a thorough physical examination, clinicians decide whether or not to treat a patient with lichen simplex chronicus.
Sometime a skin sample is collected and sent for analysis (biopsy). The initial itching may be the result of an allergy or some underlying problem, so doctors always run tests to rule those out first.
