Yes: Like everything else involving body art, it's at your own risk. Your physician might be your best guide here. If you take a factor before other procedures, this would perhaps be a good time. Start with something small. I like well-chosen body art and if this is something you've really wanted for some time, i hope you're able to get it. ...Read more

Which one is more safe chemical synovectomy or radioactive synovectomy for patients suffering from hemophilia?
Need to explain: This is because females have two x chromosomes while males have only one, so the defective gene is guaranteed to manifest in any male who carries it. Because females have two x chromosomes and haemophilia is rare, the chance of a female having two defective copies of the gene is very remote, so females are almost exclusively asymptomatic carriers of the disorder. ...Read more
Subspecialist: These are difficult, lifelong diseases that will involve care by subspecialist hematologists focused on their treatment, and much education and being proactive by the patient and family. The rx is factor replacement and care of complications. If it is hemophilia b, see if you can get into a gene therapy study. ...Read more

Gene expression: This abnormal gene is carried on the X (female) chromosome. In the female, most would have a normal gene on their 2nd X, which has the ability to make up for the other gene. A male carries only one X, and if it carries the hemophilia gene, it is fully expressed because there is no "cancelling" gene around to stop it. ...Read more
Yes: One-third to one-half of males with a new diagnosis of hemophilia have no family history of the disease. This can be due to a number of possibilities (most too complicated to be discussed here), but new mutations (de novo mutations) can occur in the offspring. For a good review of this topic, see http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/books/nbk1404/. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My son has hemophilia, but hasn't had a major bleed in about 6 years and takes regular shots. Is it safe for him to play tackle football for his hs?
No: I think you need to speak to your son'e hematologist. As you know hemophilia is graded as mild, moderate, and severe. I don't know the severity of your son's hemophilia.Even if he has mild hemophilia, it is still very risky to have him play tackle football. I have seen a 16 or 17 year old boy who developed severe muscle bleed after playing football first time in his life. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It is more likely: Hemophilia mostly affects men. It is rare but not impossible for a female to have hemophilia. Hemophilia is a sex-linked recessive disorder: the trait is carried on the x chromosome which a female has two of and a male only has one. This means a female would have to inherit two copies of the hemophilia gene to have the disorder. A male only has to inherit one copy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
