Patient discussion about call

Q. I am confused why it’s called pregnancy…..can someone….please… I have heard of the dangerous ectopic pregnancy and want to know a little more about it as I am confused why it’s called pregnancy…..can someone….please…

A. actually it is called pregnancy because IT IS A PREGNANCY.
but, it happens NOT in normal ways it has to be. in normal condition, the conception will happen in tuba falopii, then few days later the embryo (zygote) will be implanted into the uterus.

in ectopic pregnancy, the transportation of the zygote doesn't happen normally, it can be slower or even cannot make its way into the uterus. if the implantation then occurs in other part rather than endometrium of the uterus, then it is called an ectopic pregnancy.

since it's implanted NOT in the normal place, in the future it will be more likely to develop some problems during the pregnancy.

Q. why do you call Bipolar ... Bipolar? i mean what does it mean?

A. Bipolar disorder is called this way because it is charecterized by two types of obvious mood disorders- depression on the one side, and mania, or hypomania (a manic state, or 'high'), on the other side.

Q. why does it call "cancer"?can you treat cancer?

A. the name came from the appearance of the cut surface of a solid malignant tumour, with the veins stretched on all sides as the animal the crab has its feet, whence it derives its name. Hippocrates first called it in that name after describing few types of cancer.
some of the cancers are treatable but that is a big subject. there are some very nice videos here on the site that can give you a clue about that. just search them there ^ :)
