A 21-year-old member asked:

is there a period of dopamine loss or disease process going on before symptoms occur?

Dr. Glen Elliott
Child Psychiatry 43 years experience
Question unclear: Dopamine in the brain is associated with several disorders, most clearly Parkinson's disease. The question does not state what disorder is the topic of interest. Schizophrenia and adhd also are thought to involved Dopamine systems, but there is no evidence to suggest that either really are a direct result of Dopamine loss, just that medications may work through dopamine.

What is the cancer process?

Dr. Pavel Conovalciuc
Family Medicine 23 years experience
Malignant: I am not sure what you mean by cancer process. Cancer is the transformation of normal cells into malignant ones. Usually it involves the genetic material of a cell. The hallmark of a malignant cell is its uncontrolled proliferation. When it comes to function, it doesn't function as a normal cell would. Uncontrolled proliferation leads to invasion and then spread locally and distantly.

Trauma/inflammation: Any source of trauma or inflammation can result in the development of a fistula. Appendicitis, crohn's disease, gun shots, stab wounds, surgical complications, diverticulitis-- these are all potential causes. Basically, when trauma or chronic inflammation causes the barrier between 2 spaces within the body to break down, the resulting connection is called a fistula.

A 22-year-old member asked:

Is it true that the labor process goes by faster when induced?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Elizabeth Chmelik
Specializes in Family Medicine
No: This depends on a lot of factors, including the reason for induction. If the cervix is not "favorable" or not close to labor, different medications may be used to help soften it & get the contractions started. This can be a long process, depending on issues such as how many babies you have had & how far along in your pregnancy you are. If you are past your due date, it just helps to get started.
