Vision discount plan: There are some vision discount plans if you search the internet. It's not insurance but it provides a discount for going to a select set of providers and vendors. The premium is usually less than the benefit you would derive. Also, shop around for optometrists in your area - large chain stores in strip malls or department stores may be cheaper.

Dr. Morris Westfried

No: You can treat them at home with prescription medicine but do not treat genital warts with over the counter medications intended for non genital areas. It may result in scarring and make it more difficult to treat it properly.

See your doctor: If this has been going on a long time, it is likely migraines but if it is relatively new, see your doctor to make sure it is not something more dangerous. Also, he or she may be able to help you either prevent these episodes, make them less frequent, or at least treat them so they resolve sooner.

Various cell types: Endometrial cancer is characterized by stage and cell type. Clear cell is a description of the type of cells and simply behave in a more aggressive growth pattern than others.

The clear cell doesn't make it more aggressive, but it is a description of the cell type. Endometrial or ovarian cancer when it is poorly differentiated (grade 3) has a more aggressive behavior, made more so when stage is include (extent of disease).
