Medical conditions commonly missed or misdiagnosed

Folks in Connecticut and elsewhere understand that a diagnosis is only as good as the doctor making it and the tools that he or she has to make it with. Some conditions are commonly misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all. Therefore, it may be necessary for a patient to do his or her own research to fully understand what may be ailing him or her.

One-third of people diagnosed with cellulitis don't have it

Connecticut health care practitioners may misdiagnose their patients with cellulitis when they actually have a condition called pseudocellulitis. Cellulitis is a bacterial skin condition that can begin when a cut, burn or bruise is infected with strep bacteria. The symptoms of pseudocellulitis are so much like cellulitis that it can be difficult for doctors to distinguish between the two conditions.

Important progress for breast cancer patients

Breast cancer awareness has become an important issue in Connecticut and across the country, and research continues to play a major role in improving the prospects for those affected by the disease. 2016 has been a year of advances that could have helpful implications for some breast cancer patients as the areas of genetics, testing, and treatments have all had experienced positive outcomes. While there is still much progress needed, the latest efforts offer hope in the battle against this disease.

Facts about rare diseases

The subject of rare diseases is something that many people generally do not consider. This is partly because the media does not offer much information about the topic and because many people in Connecticut and around the country are unaffected by a rare disease. However, a rare disease can have a heavy impact, not only on the victim, but also on the victim's family members.
