Flashcards in test 52- disorders of the reproductive system Deck (12):
i'd like you to go for a mammogram,
which is a simple X-ray of the breast.
i'm going to remove the tumour
together with a small area of the surrounding tissue.
i feel the heavy periods and discomfort which you're experiencing
are being caused by several large fibroids.
the ligaments that hold the uterus in place have come rather stretched,
so the uterus has dropped a bit.
after the hysterectomy operation you can expect
to make a good recovery within five or six weeks.
i'm going to use a laparoscope which is a very thin flexible viewing tube
to examine the abdominal cavity.
quite a bit fluid has accumulated around the testis and
i feel we should try to draw it out.
the ultrasound scan has confirmed that
there is cancer of the right testicle.
it's quite common to find that the prostate gland
has enlarged in men over the age of fifty.
the pain you've been experiencing on urination is
due to a rather serious bacterial infection of the urethra.
i'd like to start you on a course of acyclovir for genital herpes but aspirin and warm salty baths
should provide some relief from the pain and discomfort.
