Common Surgical Conditions and Procedures

One of the most devastating things any parent can experience is the loss of a child. Whether in early or late pregnancy, during childbirth or later in life, it can be an overwhelming and heartbreaking experience. The month of October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. During this time, we take time to remember those babies we have lost and the parents and families who remain to mourn. As we go through this month, we consider why these events happen, so that we can work to prevent them happening again.  


What will cause a child to snore? Snoring occurs when there is a blockage in the upper airway. In children, this blockage is most commonly due to enlargement of the tonsils and adenoids, which are glands situated in the back of the throat and nose.


Fibroids are benign growths of muscle on the uterus. We don’t know why they develop but we do know they are more common in Black women and usually appear during the reproductive years—in the 30s. While a woman continues to have menses, fibroids may grow. Unfortunately, fibroids don’t usually go away on their own, but typically, after menopause, they get smaller and become less bothersome.


What Is Dilation and Curettage? Dilation and curettage or D&C is one of the commonest gynaecological procedures. During a D&C the cervix or neck of the uterus is dilated to permit the introduction of instruments so that tissue may be removed from the uterus.


Because symptoms of head and neck cancer may be similar to those of common benign conditions, there may be a delay in diagnosis and treatment. If caught early, many of these cancers are eminently curable. Advanced cancers, on the other hand, may be complicated to treat, with a poorer survival rate.
