Hair loss associated with weight loss is called "telogen effluvium". There are many reasons for hair loss seen in many individuals after sleeve gastrectomy. However, it is useful to remember that it is usually a temporary process. There can be many factors that cause hair loss after obesity treatment; liver diseases, hormonal irregularities, protein consumption, iron deficiency, etc.

White spots on the nail can be seen from time to time. Scientifically known as Leukoniki, sometimes all of our nails, sometimes lines are formed. There could be many different reasons. The biggest cause is damage to the nail bed. This occurs due to the nail being hit and hit somewhere.

  • Mineral Deficiency: White spots may occur on the nails due to mineral and vitamin deficiency. The biggest factor can be caused by zinc and calcium deficiency.
  • Nail Fungus: Nail fungus starts with yellow and white spots. These spots spread to the nail over time and become thicker. The first sign of infection is the appearance of small white spots on the nails. The infection can grow larger and spread to the nail bed.

Not every palpable mass is cancer. In particular, movable masses with regular edges are less likely to become cancerous. These masses are likely to be cystic structures that we see frequently in women, or a benign, slow-growing mass called fibroadenoma, which occurs especially at young ages.

Breast cancer most commonly metastasizes to lymph nodes; however, the lungs, bone, liver, and brain are other organs that breast cancer cells tend to metastasize to.

Self-examination should be done once a month for life from the age of 20. It should be checked whether there is a mass or collapse in the breast tissue and whether there is discharge from the nipple. When the mass is noticed, a surgeon should be consulted without panic. Do not forget that 8 out of 10 masses found during the examination are non-cancerous masses.

Diagnostic success is 75% with mammography and 90% with ultrasound.

A mammography should be done over the age of 40

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women. On average, it is seen in one out of 8 women. The risk of cancer increases with age. The most common age group is 50-60 age group worldwide.

In these studies, people who regularly use these drugs for arthritis or heart attack prevention were evaluated. In another study, findings were obtained that aspirin used in patients who were treated for early-stage colorectal cancer or had their polyps removed prevents the development of polyps.

Being at an ideal weight, active life, doing sports, healthy eating, nutritional supplements, quitting alcohol and smoking reduce these risks.

It is generally recommended to have a colonoscopy in the first year after colon cancer surgery. If results are normal, most patients have the next test 3 years later. When found to be normal again, it is generally recommended to be done every 5 years after surgery.

Endoscopic methods such as colonoscopy are mostly used in the diagnosis of cancer. During colonoscopy, polyps, if formed, are also removed and pathologically examined. In some cases, computed tomography may also be requested. Examinations such as MR-PET may also be considered necessary.

It is the spread of cancer cells originating from any part of the body to other tissues and organs other than the organ in which they are located. If this spread to neighboring organs, vessels and regional lymph nodes is considered as "local advanced stage", it usually corresponds to the third stage in cancer. In this type of cancer, the tumor is mostly reduced with treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and then surgical operation is performed.

When inguinal hernias were repaired with old methods, that is, when they were repaired without patches and with stitches, they would recur very often. Recurrence rates decreased with the use of the patch method. Patched repairs do not have any problems if there is no problem in the early period after the operation. It is normal to feel a slight tingling after the operation. When there is severe pain, a physician should be consulted. Having a strong muscular system reduces the chance of relapse.

The larger the umbilical hernias, the greater the risk of strangulation. The risk of strangulation of umbilical hernias is higher than other hernias. Umbilical hernias can cause intestinal obstruction. Even if they are small, umbilical hernias should be repaired. If the hernia, which disappeared when pushed before, does not enter anymore, the hernia causes suffocation, pain and redness in the area. Hernia strangulation can lead to intestinal rot, sepsis and infections and death. It is not possible for the hernia to heal spontaneously in adult individuals.

Thyroid nodules are small bumps that form within the thyroid gland. In the community, its incidence is 4%.

Life expectancy of a rectal cancer patient; It depends on many factors such as the degree and stage of cancer, Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) levels, general health status of the patient, the chosen treatment method, and the patient's response to treatment. The process after rectal cancer varies from patient to patient, depending on the patient's age, tumor, and post-operative treatment.

When the thyroid modules are examined with examination findings and ultrasound, it is decided whether they are important or not according to the characteristics of the detected nodules. In doubtful cases, biopsy is performed with a fine needle.

Colonoscopy is usually recommended, as hemorrhoids may also accompany diseases such as ulcerative colitis and anal fissures.

Stage 3 and 4 is edema after hemorrhoids come out of the anus.

The purpose of this method, which is preferred in stages 2 and 3, is to prevent the hemorrhoidal pads from hanging down. As in hemorrhoidectomy surgery, excision of the packs is not performed.

It is preferred in stage 3 and 4 external and internal hemorrhoids.

This method is done with ligasure. In this method, a ligasure device is used instead of a scalpel, which cuts by burning the place to be cut. Bleeding during surgery is minimal and therefore does not require stitches.

An enlargement of the thyroid gland is called a goiter. The two most common and known diseases causing goiter are Grave's disease and toxic multinodular goiter (Toxic Goiter).

Infrared photocoagulation, band ligation, sclerotherapy, longo, artery ligation, ligasure methods

Radiofrequency method can be applied according to the patient.

It depends on the patient's hemorrhoid status, recurrence status, age. Laser is a more suitable method for early stages.

Rubber band ligation, infrared coagulation and sclerotherapy and laser. It is a painless and daily procedure. However, it is not suitable for every patient.

Thyroid hormone has effects on conception and infertility. While the lack of thyroid gland makes it difficult to become pregnant, excessive secretion can cause infertility, premature birth and miscarriage. Despite being pregnant, if the thyroid gland is not known to be less functioning and the problem is not resolved in the first three months, intelligence and development problems may occur in the baby. In case of overwork of the thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism), there is usually no problem in getting pregnant women. The problem stems from iodine deficiency and autoimmune thyroid diseases.

Thyroid surgery is performed under general anesthesia.

In open thyroid surgery, which is classically performed for large nodules or thyroid cancer, the neck is opened approximately 7-8 cm from the lower part.

Hair loss is a problem that can affect half of the patients after bariatric surgery. The stress of surgery, vitamin-mineral deficiencies, insufficient nutrient intake, insufficient water consumption are the main reasons that increase the problem of hair loss. Even if all these deficiencies are eliminated, the decrease in the body's calorie intake and the sudden change in the metabolic balance may also cause shedding.

In addition, as the risk of an overweight baby will decrease, the rate of cesarean section also decreases.

  • Since the removed part of the stomach is the most secreted part of the Ghrelin hormone, which triggers hunger, not only the amount of food that gives a feeling of satiety decreases, but also a decrease in the desire to eat.
