My granddaughter been sent to oesteopath  with suspected lockjaw maybe cause by having head suction at birth. Is this easily cured. she is 6 weeks old?

My sister has been diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme and she's been alive more than 3 years since. Is she doing well or does she have no time left?

While many families and patients want to know the "time left, " it's usually impossible to tell. We in oncology believe it's more about quality than quantity; hopefully her quality of life is ok. Best wishes. ...Read more
