@aproko_doctor @trending_medic Pls, COLD SORES ARE NOT CAUSED BY MALARIA, so pls, stop abusing anti-malarial medication when u have a cold sore.

Do not also waste ur time & money in getting antibiotics, bcos it will not work for it.

There are drugs that ur doctor can give u that would help it heal faster.

Understanding HYDROCEPHALUS (BIG HEAD in Babies/Children) and what causes it.

There has been a lot of this children who you see with big heads that are bigger than even that of an adult & the only sad thing is that most people would tag or link it to a spiritual attack from.... their village or elsewhere, and be going to different herbal homes & trying different concoctions.

hence, I have decided that I would be writing more on these medical conditions that is mostly tagged as spiritual attacks, and we would be starting with this one.

This month is #ProstateCancerAwarenessMonth! And today, we would be talking about Prostate Cancer. Yesterday, we discussed BPH.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and the second most common cancer diagnosed worldwide.
@aproko_doctor @trending_medic @olawalesmd About 20,000 men die of prostate cancer every year in Nigeria.
About 1 in 5 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.

As men age, the risk of developing prostate cancer increases. About 6 in 10 cases are found in men over the age of 65.

Few Signs that Suggest you may have Breast Cancer.

Breast cancer is the commonest cancer in women In Nigeria. A lot of women has died due to complications from breast cancer disease, and a good number of these deaths could have been prevented if only these.....
@aproko_doctor ...women were able to be identified/diagnosed early on.

Once a cancer has spread to other organs, there is no stopping it.

Dying from cancer is a very painful way to die. People with this experience a lot of pain, and misery before death comes.
