Cells go deep: The familiar "sebaceous cyst" is usually caused by cells from the epidemis, the surface layer of the skin, becoming embedded (perhaps from a bug bite) in the deep dermis. They circle up and grow, with their products (keratin and sebum) within the center, gradually increasing in size. They are easily excised; best results happen if the cyst is not punctured. ...Read more
Epidermoid Cysts: Epidermoid cysts are usually asymptomatic; however, they may become inflamed or secondarily infected, resulting in swelling and tenderness. Rarely, malignancies, including basal cell carcinoma, bowen disease, scc (most common of these rarities), mycosis fungoides, and melanoma in situ, have developed in epidermoid cysts. ...Read more
Trappd skin fragment: Due to a minor injury, pimple, etc., a piece of skin gets trapped under the normal skin. It doesn't know it is not on the surface, and so it makes oil and hair and it sheds dead skin normally. All of this accumulates under the surface and forms a small cyst. As more debris is added, the cyst gets bigger and bigger. They are recognized by their overlying enlarged pore and cured by excision. ...Read more
Is the non invasive prenatal paternity bloodtest from natera reliable? I did the test. 1 man was an inclusion, 1 indeterminate. Is it accurate?
Not in your case : If the test results for you were "indeterminate" then that means you will not be able to draw any conclusions from those results. ...Read more
Anything enclosed...: Again, there are multiple meanings of 'inclusion'. Again, it can be used as a verb or a noun. Medically, it is a structure within a structure, such as a nucleus inside a cell, or a cyst inside a bone, liver or kidney. A fetal 'inclusion' may be a partially developed embryo within enclosed within the body of a twin. In general, anything which is enclosed within something else. ...Read more
Myopathy type: Ibm is atype of inflammatory myositis. It tends to affect people older than 50. People with ibm often have weakness of their upper and lower arms and legs. Sometimes the muscles look smaller known as atrophy. Unfortunately there are no treatments that are proven to help. However, patients are sometimes tried on a short course of steroids, ivig, etc. Phys therapy is extremely important. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A wide spectrum Pts.: This is an inflammatory muscle disease, with slowly progressive weakness and wasting of both distal and proximal muscles, most notably of the arms and legs. Because this randomly affects different people in different ways and at different rates, there is no "textbook case." there are two kinds, sporadic and hereditary. The hereditary case does not have inflammation and is thus not myositis. ...Read more
With a stick maybe?: No definitive treatment has proved effective for the sporadic form of the disease. A militaristic tough-as-nails let's-hard-nose-this-one-out how-to-beat-it when-the-going-gets-tough-the-tough-get-going attitude toward this disease will only cause greater feelings of failure and frustration down the line. Most proactive thing is to try to get into a clinical trial, see clinicaltrials.gov. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is there any exercise or/and diet that would be helpful in slowing down the progress of INCLUSION BODY MYOSITIS ?
No: This illness is refractory to treatment. Try to stay as physically active as you can for as long as you can. See if you can get enrolled in a clinical trial. As much as I'd like to be able to recommend something, and as eager as others will be to offer ideas that will not be helpful, I must be up front with you -- do not expect any intervention to be more effective than a placebo. ...Read more
None really: Eic is a sac lined with skin cells embedded under your skin that becomes full of the skin and oil normally produced and exfoliated each day. Squeezing the cyst will release this cheesy smelly material but will cause scarring and make it more difficult to remove the sac surgically, so avoid this. I have some patients that have multiple neck cysts that resolve after eliminating dairy from the diet. ...Read more
Ck emyograph biopsy: Ten fold increase creatine kinase enzyme,electromyography, muscle biopsy sent to neuropathologists, or human leucocyte gene assays using gene sequencing or similar tests will Narrow this down to sporadic type but this is a disease that begs more discoveries. Of course your doc needs to determine if your symptoms are those of IBM. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
