Is it possible to rid of giant papillary conjunctivitis in a week?

Dr. Andrew Shatz

Anything's possible: Giant papillary conjnctivitis is usually a chronic response to an allergen or foreign body (like contact lenses). Since it usually takes weeks or longer to develop, it usually takes at least several weeks to decrease. It can go away quicker with medicated eye drops, but will return if the eye is again exposed to the allergen (or contact lens).

Yes !!!: Lung cancer is curable when found early. There are two broad categories of lung cancer; small cell and non small cell. Adenocarcinoma is the most common form of non smal cell lung cancer. The prognosis of non small cell lung cancer is impacted more by the stage than it is by the cell type. Adenocarcinoma can be cured. In early stages, only surgery may be required.
