A structure filled with liquid or semi-solid matter that could form anywhere in the body when a hollow structure is prevented from draining or a collection of fluid becomes surrounded by a wall of connective tissue.
Examples are such as
•Acne cyst Pseudo-cysts associated with cystic acne, an inflammatory nodule with or without an associated epidermoid inclusion cyst.
•Arachnoid cyst lies between the surface of the brain and the cranial base or on the arachnoid membrane.
•Baker’s cyst or popliteal cyst (behind the knee-joint)
•Dentigerous cyst (associated with the crowns of non-erupted teeth)
•Dermoid cyst (ovaries, testes, many other locations from head to tailbone)
•Epidermal cyst (found in the vessels attached to the testes)
•Ganglion cyst (hand/ foot joints and tendons)
•Glial cyst (in the brain)
•Gartner’s duct cyst (vaginal or vulvar cyst of embryological origin)
•Liver cystic disease
•Mucoid cyst (ganglion cysts of the digits)
•Ovarian cyst (ovaries, functional and pathological)
•Fallopian tube cyst
•Peritoneal cyst (lining of the abdominal cavity)
•Skin infection near tailbone
•Renal cyst (kidneys)
•Poly-cystic ovary syndrome
•Pineal gland cyst
•Tarlov cyst (spine)
•Vocal fold cyst and parasitic cysts (formed when parasites such as amoebae and tapeworms infest certain organs).
Cysts are mostly benign but may cause concern if they are seen or felt for example skin or breast cysts and may cause symptoms if they become infected or large enough to cause pressure on or obstruction or displacement of adjacent body parts.
CYSTITIS, an Inflammation of the bladder can be due to infection from bacteria that ascend the urethra (the canal from the outside) to the bladder. Cystitis may be acute or chronic and is a very common problem for women, whose shorter urethra that drains urine from the bladder makes them more liable than men to infections and other inflammations of the bladder and urethra.
Symptoms include a frequent need to urinate, often accompanied by a burning sensation. As cystitis progresses, blood may be observed in the urine and the patient may suffer cramps after urination. In young children, attempts to avoid the pain of cystitis can be a cause for daytime wetting (enuresis).
Treatment includes avoiding irritants, such as perfumed soaps, near the urethral opening; increased fluid intake; and antibiotics. Untreated cystitis can lead to scarring and the formation of stones when urine is retained for long periods of time to avoid painful urination. Acute cystitis causes frequent, urgent and painful passing of urine. There is an urgent want to empty the bladder, but when one has got to the toilet, then you can only dribble out a spoonful and it hurts. Within short span of time, again the urge strikes again. Sometimes there is a constant urge to urinate even when you cannot pass a drop. With severe acute cystitis there is an also often pain behind the pubic bones, chills and fever, a burning or scalding feeling when the urine wets the genitals and sometimes blood in the urine, which may smell unusual and be cloudy.
In chronic cystitis there is more likely to be recurrent or ongoing lower abdominal pain as well as frequency and urgency. Fever, burning and bloodstained urine are less common. The symptoms of cystitis are very distressing particularly if the attacks are recurrent or the condition chronic, apart from the need to stay close to a toilet. Frequent attacks can disrupt the self-life, which may further lead to isolation, anxiety and depression.
Causes – Most acute cystitis is due to bacterial infection. A multitude of bacteria can cause inflammation if they get into the urethra and bladder. Infection, allergy, immune disorders, some drugs, small bladder stones or any condition that prevents complete emptying of the bladder may lead to chronic cystitis is pressure on the urethra from an enlarged prostate gland. One type of chronic cystitis is called interstitial cystitis, where the deeper layers of the bladder lining remain inflamed causing symptoms after the infection or other possible causes have been eliminated.
In most cases the diagnosis of acute cystitis should be confirmed by pathological examination of the urine to show any bacteria and to check their antibiotic sensitivity. If you have chronic or recurrent bladder symptoms it is very important to have urine tests and a thorough urinary tract examination so that the cause can be found and treated. Recurrent cystitis can be a symptom of more serious conditions.
Tests usually include urography; contrast x-rays of the kidneys, bladder, and perhaps cystoscopy internal examination of the bladder via a viewing instrument and biopsy of the bladder lining. If you get frequently symptoms of cystitis after sex, in that even one may need to see a specialist in urology. It may be that you have a chronic infection of the glands near the urethral outlet or some other bladder or urethral condition that can be corrected. However the bladder symptoms after sex are not always due to infection.
SEX AND CYSTITIS; some women are more prone than others to develop urinary symptoms associated with sex. Sometimes problems only occur when sexual intercourse is frequent over a short time. In women the urethra and bladder base are very close to the front wall of the vagina, where they are liable to injury from friction during intercourse-especially if the vulva and vagina are not sufficiently lubricated by sexual arousal before penetration. Frictional injury alone is enough to cause inflammation of the urethra. Some germs probably always get into the urethra and bladder during sex but normal defenses usually overcome them. However, if the tissues are also injured their defenses will be down and infection is more likely to take hold.
Women who develop bladder and urethral symptoms almost every time they have intercourse come to fear sex. The fear cuts down their sexual arousal so that they are less well-lubricated and more likely to suffer mechanical injury-the beginning of a vicious circle of sex and bladder problems. This can play havoc with a relationship.
Onnuri SuJok Acupuncture not only is effective as a primary modality, it also play a vital role as an adjunctive therapy due to how effective the meridian system is to proper diagnosis. Because the meridians influence every cell in the body and pass through every organ and organ system, acupuncture provides health practitioners with an exact and noninvasive means of determining health deficiencies, as well as a method of reestablishing balance. It provides most benefits without the dangerous side effects associated with many of the approaches of conventional medicine. While acupuncture represents a legacy of concepts that predate Western civilization, as a contemporary health care system it also represents a synthesis of continuously evolving scientific and technological developments that provides us with new tools to meet current clinical challenges. An important aspect of Onnuri SuJok therapy is that it allows to take into account an individual characteristic of the patient manifested in his/her own energy constitution. This brings about an effective action on the very origin of disease. Besides, there are practically no contradictions for use of the therapy. The remission of the disease can be achieved and medicament’s therapy simultaneously can be reduced or eliminated altogether.
