Q. Have you ever heard that vaccines cause autism? If so why such thought persist? Hi my new friends! Hope you are all in good health! Have you ever heard that vaccines cause autism? If so why such thought persist? I look forward to reading all of your answers tomorrow.

A. Yes I heard about that and avoided being injected sometimes. This belief persists because signs of autism may appear around the same time that children receive the vaccine that prevents measles, mumps and rubella, and some parents worry that the vaccine caused the autism.

Q. Can lung cancer be diagnosed on behalf of persistent cough? My father is a heavy smoker. He smoked for all his adult life and he never stopped. In the last few weeks he started to have persistent cough attacks. Can those attacks be the first sign of lung cancer?

A. Smoking can damage the lung in many ways. The fact that someone that is a smoker is suffering from chronic cough doesn't mean that he is suffering from lung cancer. To get a cretin diagnosis you will have to do a chest X-ray.
here is a X-ray with the lesion that might be an actual lung cancer

Q. Headache that won’t go away. Help! Hi, I’m 47 years old man, working as accountant. Yesterday afternoon, I came back home, and after some time I started to feel headache that still going. Is it dangerous? Is it possible I have something like bleeding? I wasn’t hit or injured in anyway in my head before this headache appeared

A. There are two types of headaches: primary headaches and secondary headaches. Primary headaches are not associated with (caused by) other diseases. Examples of primary headaches are migraine headaches, tension headaches, and cluster headaches. Secondary headaches are caused by associated disease. The associated disease may be minor or serious and life threatening. Tension headaches are the most common type of primary headache. Tension headaches are more common among women than men. Migraine headaches are the second most common type of primary headache. Secondary headaches have diverse causes, ranging from serious and life threatening conditions such as brain tumors, strokes, meningitis, and subarachnoid hemorrhages to less serious but common conditions such as withdrawal from caffeine and discontinuation of analgesics. http://www.medicinenet.com/headache/article.htm In any case if your headache continues you should see your doctor immediately. Hope this helps.

Da parte sua, in un articolo comparso sul L'Unita nel 2001, Iain Chambers--che lavora pionieristicamente da molti anni insieme a Lidia Curti all'Universita Orientale di Napoli con un attivissimo gruppo di collaboratori e ricercatori in questo ambito--collegava la resistenza degli studi italianisti in Italia nei confronti degli studi culturali al persistere di una rimozione spesso presente nella tradizione linguistica e letteraria nazionale, rimozione che espelle dalla identita e dalla tradizione il percorso possibile di una traduzione di identita, lingue e culture altre.

Il neurologo formula diagnosi di tendinite dell'achilleo bilaterale conseguente a ciclo di antibioticoterapia con chinolonici (e stato riscontrato che tale principio attivo soprattutto se associato con steroidi nei soggetti anziani costituisce un importante fattore di rischio nei confronti dell'insorgenza di gravi lesioni tendinee soprattutto in sede achillea (20)) e consiglia una visita fisiatrica per ciclo di riabilitazione ed eventuale elettroterapia, oltre che una rivalutazione ortopedica se il dolore dovesse persistere.
Anche qui si vede il persistere della invariante del classicismo e la dimensione europea alla quale assurse nel Cinquecento: e, per cosi dire, una dimostrazione della portata diacronica del sistema di valori classicisti, quei valori che il cortigiano castiglionesco conquista in senso diacronico.
