Both are completely different.

Uterine Fibroids are benign growth of the muscle inside the uterus & they are not cancerous. Fibroids can cause a wide variety of symptoms & the most common is heavy bleeding.

The main cause of abscess in Uterus is post C-Section or because of a Pelvic Inflammatory Disease which could be because of many reasons.

Thanks SILVERWOOD. Are Uterine Fibroids curable through medicines or any vaccine?

There is no vaccine. Understand that its not an infective process. Vaccines in general are for infectious diseases. Fibroids on the other hand are benign lesions. They can decrease in size by medicines. If that doesn't work patient might have to undergo surgery. They generally tend to decrease after menopause, so patients age and severity of symptoms would decide the best course of action.

As drMohitg already said, no.

Most Fibriods and Cysts do not cause problems.The most common treatment for Fibriods is Medication,followed by few surgical procedures and the last resort is Hysterectomy.

No why will this be harmful? All you need to do is to wear spectacles of a size larger so as not to cause such impressions/marks.

Will a dental bridge reduce the natural life of the supporting teeth or harm them in any way? I need to replace a molar and a pre molar on my upper jaw, and a molar on the lower. Both the upper teeth had been extracted at different periods due to vertical splitting. So the doctor suggests bridge there, after seeing the X-ray. However for the lower jaw he gives a choice of implant or bridge.

I don't want to do an implant because of the cost and also because of the surgical procedure.

We went in for consultation of Dr. Vivek Jawali at Fortis, and he wants us to go ahead with bypass surgery. So please advise/share your experience at Fortis for bypass surgery.

Aviod Fortis Hospital at any cost. I would any day prefer a Christian Missionaries run hospital over a corporate hospital.

St Marthas for example.(Not sure if they have a cardiology set-up)

A Properly done bridge should not have any detrimental effect on the life of natural teeth. It has to be planned well. The condition of the supporting teeth must be carefully evaluated to ascertain whether they will be able to support the missing teeth. if more teeth are missing, more support is required. Also, the skill of the dentist is more important than often thought to be. Choose your dentist wisely.
Also, these days I would recommend Monolithic zirconia crowns and bridges for posterior region, As they are thinner and require less removal of natural tooth structure. They are stronger and abrade the opposing teeth lesser.
Please ask anything else you want to know.

I would suggest jayadeva . Our close family friend has got an angiogram and angioplasty done over there and knows the details very well about the hospital. Pm me . I Will give you his contact number. He Will be more than happy to help you out with the info.

Narayana hrudayalaya is way too commercialized

Frame size is large, problem is with the inward bend portion of frame which goes behind the ear. The tip is pressing sideways into the skull. It's a titanium frame, so I can't even bend the frame by hand.

My apprehension is whether it may constrict some nerves or blood vessels or the brain.
