Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurological brain disorder that affects the cells and nerves responsible for controlling and coordinating movement.
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection that occurs in a woman’s pelvic area; it can affect the uterus, the ovaries and the Fallopian tubes. It usually exists as a complication from a pre-existing sexually transmitted disease such as chlamydia or gonorrhoea, where the infection has spread from the vagina and cervix up to the upper genital tract.
Peripheral nerves make up the wiring that connects the brain to the distant parts of the body. These nerves are necessary for us to walk, talk, touch and breathe. Although the impact of peripheral nerve damage can be diverse and serious, treatment can help, and some peripheral nerve damage does heal.
Pituitary tumours are common, nearly always benign and often unnoticed. They can, however, disrupt hormone levels or press on other parts of the brain.
Polyps are growths in your bowel that are non-cancerous. A polyp may have a distinct stalk and a head, while in other cases they’re much flatter and look like lumps on the lining of your bowel.

Fortunately, most types of skin cancer to do not threaten general health or decrease life expectancy, but will still require some treatment.
Sleepwalking, also called somnambulism, is when someone moves around during sleep, carrying out complex activities.

This is the point at which the major tendons connect to the muscles of the forearm. Although the pain is felt at the site of tissue damage, tennis elbow results from forceful wrist movements.
Cancer is a disease of the body’s cells. The human body is made up of many different types of cells and therefore cancer is not a single disease with a single cause or treatment. Normal cells in the body divide in a uniformed and controlled way. When cells begin to grow out of control they divide and grow into a lump also known as a tumour. Tumours are either benign or malignant.

Uveitis is a serious and widespread inflammation of the eye; it can be due to an infection or it can be non-infectious. Uveitis can develop, for example, in people who have inflammatory conditions elsewhere in the body such as some types of rheumatoid arthritis. People who have AIDS are also more prone to severe eye inflammation.
Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted. The term commonly refers to the veins on the leg, although varicose veins can occur elsewhere. Varicose veins form when the one-way valves of the leg veins fail to prevent back-flow of blood. Vein walls become stretched and the valve is no longer able to close properly. As a result, there is pooling of blood in the leg veins near to the skin, and they become visible as bulging blue or purple veins.
Watery eyes, also known as epiphora, are a symptom of many conditions. Although not harmful, watery eyes can be extremely uncomfortable.
