It’s okay to ask a doctor if you’re feeling sick, but there’s really no need to be too nervous about some "illnesses", let alone being scared by small advertisements to rush into the doctor. Today, I will sort out which "disease" is not counted. disease"?
Hemorrhoids: almost everyone has
As the saying goes, "ten people have nine hemorrhoids"
According to the survey, 70% to 80% of people over 25 have hemorrhoids; 90% of people over 40 to 50 have hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are actually "vascular anal pads." People who have difficulty defecation, too many or too little bowel movements, and sedentary people are prone to hemorrhoids. The main symptoms include bleeding, prolapse, pain, and anal foreign body sensation.
Generally speaking, people with a "fire-prosperous" physique, improper diet, staying up late and "getting up" or with weak spleen are more likely to develop hemorrhoids. Only when symptoms such as bleeding, anal prolapse, and pain occur, can it be called a disease. If it does affect work and life, then treatment is needed. As long as there are no symptoms, no treatment is required.
Thyroid nodules: 95% are benign
In recent years, more and more people have found thyroid nodules, mainly because of the advancement of B-ultrasound technology, even 3mm nodules can be seen. Once a nodule is found in a physical examination, many people will choose to use a knife for fear that it will become thyroid cancer.
In fact, thyroid cancer tends to develop directly from the normal thyroid gland, rather than becoming a benign nodule first and then further evolving into thyroid cancer as everyone thinks. In fact, don’t worry about “thyroid nodules” below 1 cm. Most of them are benign and will not become “thyroid cancer”. As long as moderate follow-up observation is sufficient.
Prostatitis: don't worry about life
Prostatitis is the most common disease in the male urinary system. Because it is a private part, many people find it difficult to talk about it and often choose to go to some "low-key" small clinics. But in fact, most chronic prostatitis does not require special treatment.
In chronic prostatitis patients, less than 10% are caused by infection, and most of the causes are not very clear. Chronic inflammation is present in all parts of the body, just like arthritis, there are no serious symptoms, so don't worry too much. If there are no obvious symptoms such as frequent urination, urgency, and dysuria, it can be relieved by regular physical examinations, avoid sedentary sitting, participate in more exercise, and eliminate spicy food.
Bone spurs: a self-protection of the human body
Bone spurs are actually bone hyperplasia, which is a self-protection response of the human body. Bone spurs can grow in various places, such as cervical spine, lumbar spine, knee joints, etc. Bone spurs are not the cause of pain. Under normal circumstances, treatment is not needed. If treatment is needed, only the primary disease causing bone spurs-osteoarthritis can be cured.
If it is just a bone spur found in a physical examination, there is no discomfort in life, no pain or uncomfortable, no need to be nervous. But if bone spurs cause osteoarthritis, then further treatment is needed.
In addition, remind everyone that the weather is getting colder, and joints are susceptible to pain when cold, so keep warm.
Premature heart beat: no symptoms without treatment
Normally healthy people may also induce premature beats after being emotionally excited, tired, panicked, staying up late, insomnia, drinking strong tea, strong coffee, and alcohol. Generally speaking, it is harmless and no medication is required. Most premature beats do not require special treatment, and medication will be considered only after it has induced some lesions. After all, the medicine is three-point poison. It is possible that you may be okay with occasional premature beats, but you may have problems taking the medicine.
Chronic superficial gastritis: is indigestion
According to the survey, the detection rate of chronic superficial gastritis is 80%-90%. In the hospital, as long as you undergo gastroscopy, almost without exception, you will get the lightest level of diagnosis: chronic superficial gastritis.
Almost most people have chronic superficial gastritis. Many chronic superficial gastritis in the gastroscopy report are just functional dyspepsia or non-ulcer dyspepsia, not that the gastric mucosa really has chronic inflammation and does not require treatment at all. If you experience fullness or indigestion after a meal, you can relieve it by taking multi-enzyme tablets and a variety of probiotics. There is no need to worry.
