• Bleeding (due to chest trauma)
• Chylothorax (due to trauma)
• Rare chest and abdominal infections
• Asbestos pleural effusion (due to exposure to asbestos)
• Meig’s syndrome (due to a benign ovarian tumor)

How is pleural effusion diagnosed?
• Chest x-ray
• Computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest
• Ultrasound of the chest

• Thoracostomy – a small tube inserted between the ribs into the chest cavity to remove all water.
• Thoracoscopy – Video-assisted Thoracoscopy, like laparoscopy a small cut is made between ribs and telescope passed into the chest cavity. Where lung is separated from the chest wall, all pus (water) is removed under vision.

causes of male infertility

 Causes of Male Infertility

Infertility in males has many known causes such as genetic abnormalities, endocrine – pituitary & testicular failure, genital infection, varicoceles, sexual problems etc but in 50% of cases, there is no detectable cause. This is known as idiopathic male infertility for which some co-factor may be responsible such as
Tobacco, marijuana, excessive alcohol, coffee, anabolic steroids in protein powders, heat exposure of testis, radiation exposure through cell phones & cell towers, environmental toxins & chemical toxins etc.
So lifestyle management, control of obesity, healthy diet, exercise, good sleep & reduced stress forms the basis of medical treatment of male infertility prior to medical & surgical treatment.

Cancer – the word in itself is such a word which really scares anybody away. It can happen to anyone. Statistics say that by the year 2020 every family will have a member stricken by cancer. That fast is the growth rate and percentage rate of cancer.
One most important aspect of this disease is its prevention. it’s truly known that ” Prevention is always better than Cure”. Though the disease not only makes the person depressed but it’s a disease which affects the whole family psychologically.

Here at 21st Century hospital, Vapi, 3C cancer Center headed by Dr. Akshay Nadkarni has successfully been treating Cancer patients for 7 years now. It is the only center which has surgical facilities ( open and laparoscopic ) operations are done, chemotherapy facilities, and a team which counsels for cancer prevention (counselor).
All cancers like head and neck ( oral, tongue, thyroid, parathyroid, larynx, etc ), GI cancers ( stomach, intestines, rectum etc ) Gynaec ( cervix, ovary, endometrium, vagina, vulva, Breast etc ). And other rare cancers have been dealt by Dr. Akshay Nadkarni and his team efficiently and successfully.

According to Dr. Akshay, he says “ Nip the bud in the vice“.
Every single vice, habits have to be nipped at the correct time which can prevent any patient from seeing a bad day. A patient’s ailments are all related to his die-hard habits like smoking, tobacco chewing, drinking, etc and such things are responsible for his final doom.

According to a study published Online First by The Lancet, breast, cervical and stomach cancers are responsible for the majority of cancer deaths among women in India, while lung, oral ( mouth ) and stomach cancers are the leading causes of cancer death in Indian men.
All of these are definitely preventable and treatable if diagnosed at early stages of development ( stage 1/2).

There are various methods for diagnosis. So there is a need for a routine whole body check up yearly which should be done on a regular timely basis.
Blood tests, XRays, mammographies, Pap smears, sonographies, special hormonal assays help to detect any abnormalities fast and hence treat fast.

Most of them need surgeries which are now possible by keyhole ( laparoscopy ) mode.
This results in faster recovery, better prognosis, and better convalescence.
