    【Tungs' Hospital】Peculiar Sensation of Obstruction in British Engineer's Throat, Leading to Difficulty in Breathing!!

    Mr. Dave is an engineer working at wind farms along the coast of Taiwan. He visited Tungs' Hospital due to a peculiar sensation of obstruction in his throat, leading to difficulty breathing. Seeking answers, he went to the Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, where Dr. Yi-Ting Kuo performed an ultrasound examination. The diagnosis revealed that he had a thyroid nodule, prompting the extraction of a sample for further analysis. Fortunately, the results showed that the thyroid nodule was benign. Dr. Kuo promptly referred Dave to the Thyroid Ablation ANTD Image-guided Therapy Department for Alcohol Ablation Treatment. Despite initial nervousness, Dave bravely underwent the treatment, and he said it wasn’t as painful as he thought it would be. After a successful treatment, Dave regained smooth breathing, marking a satisfying conclusion to his medical journey. -- Thyroid Nodules: According to statistics, approximately 20% of people over 40 have thyroid nodules. These nodules, which are palpable lumps beneath the skin, may present as fluid-filled cysts or solid tumors, often without noticeable symptoms. Generally, thyroid nodules do not significantly impact health unless they grow large enough to compress the trachea, esophagus, or recurrent laryngeal nerve, potentially causing swallowing difficulties or hoarseness. Nodules can be classified as benign or malignant, and while the risk of benign nodules transforming into cancerous cells increases with their growth, the likelihood of thyroid nodules developing into thyroid cancer is very low, with fewer than 1 person out of 100 affected. What to do if you have thyroid nodules? Thyroid nodules are typically discovered through routine health examinations or by noticing swelling in the neck. There is no need to panic if abnormalities are detected during examination, as most nodules are benign. Further evaluation through ultrasound can help determine whether the nodules may pose any health risks or become malignant. If the nodules are small (less than 4 centimeters), the risk of thyroid cancer is low, and regular monitoring per the physician's instructions is usually sufficient. If nodules grow large enough to compress the esophagus or trachea, medical attention is warranted, and surgical removal may be recommended following evaluation by a physician. Suspicion of malignant tumors can be confirmed through cell examination via fine-needle aspiration if irregularities, calcifications, or dark appearances are detected during ultrasound. In such cases, surgical intervention may be necessary, followed by radioactive iodine therapy to eradicate cancerous cells in the thyroid gland. Regular follow-up monitoring is typically advised for post-operative care. -- If you have any questions or are interested in medical information, please follow our Facebook page or visit our official website to learn more about healthcare knowledge and become a guardian of health with Tungs' Hospital. ★Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/ttmhhimsc/ ★Website:https://tconf.sltung.com.tw/imc/

  • Painful Kidney Stone
    【Tungs' Hospital】Unbearable Pain! Filipino Struggled with Kidney Stones

    【Tungs' Hospital】Unbearable Pain! Filipino Struggled with Kidney Stones

    A Filipino seafarer, during a long voyage at sea, suddenly experienced severe abdominal pain and noticed signs of hematuria in his recent urine. Despite trying to endure it, the pain was too unbearable to ignore, so he decided to seek medical attention immediately upon the advice of the ship's doctor, arranging to go to Tungs' Hospital. After examination, the doctor diagnosed the patient with kidney stones, leading to symptoms such as urinary obstruction and hematuria. Kidney stones are one of the common problems encountered in maritime work. Due to limited food supply and difficulty preserving vegetables onboard, seafarers tend to consume foods high in calcium oxalate and phosphates, such as spinach and beans. Additionally, due to the dietary environment and work pressure onboard, indigestion is also common, leading to the deposition of crystalline substances in the kidneys, forming stones. Through ultrasound examination, it was found that the size of the kidney stones in this patient was approximately 7 millimeters and presented in a round shape. Following the doctor's recommendation, the seafarer underwent flexible ureteroscopy, successfully removing the stones with minimal harm to the body and restoring normal urine flow. Small Facts about flexible ureteroscopy: Flexible ureteroscopy is one of the methods used to treat kidney stones. It is a flexible medical equipment that can be inserted through the urethra into the bladder and urethra for the observation and treatment of kidney stones. Compared to traditional rigid ureteroscopy, this type of ureteroscope is softer, making it easier to navigate through the bends of the urethra and reducing discomfort for the patient. The doctor also reminded him that adopting good dietary habits is an important part of preventing kidney stones, advising him to increase his intake of fruits and vegetables onboard, avoid excessive consumption of foods high in calcium oxalate and phosphates, and pay attention to avoiding diets that are detrimental to kidney health, such as those high in oil and salt. This story serves as a reminder to the public that whether it's seafarers on long voyages or individuals who enjoy drinking beverages and eating meals with sauces, they are all at risk for kidney disease. Maintaining good dietary habits and seeking timely medical assistance can effectively prevent and treat such diseases. -- If you have further questions, you can visit our website or inquire on various social media platforms: ► IMS Website ► Facebook ► Instagram ► WhatsApp

    Taipei Fertility Center / Case Sharing from Taiwan I’m a patient who had one of my ovaries removed. I was diagnosed with the cancer when I was in college. After finishing my whole cancer treatment, my husband and I had started our family-forming plan for 2 years, and got nothing sadly. Then I met Dr.Hu when I was 38. At that time, my AMH value was only 0.3ng/ml because of my age and the lesion caused by chemotherapy before. During the IVF treatment, I was suggested with 2 options – collecting my eggs by several retrieval surgeries or egg donation. Although I was so anxious, I decided to go for 4 times of egg retrievals without hesitation, and luckily I got 9 eggs collected! Finally, 3 embryos were implanted into my uterus, and I was pregnant successfully with the singleton. Few months after, I came back to see Dr.Hu with my precious 8-month-old baby. I told my baby that this is the second time he met Dr.Hu. The first time happened in the time-lapse incubator when he is still an embryo. What a strong vitality! It’s such an amazing miracle we won’t ever forget.

    【Tungs' Taichung MetroHarbor Hospital】Emergency Surgery for Indonesian Patient with Stroke

    The Indonesian patient, who had been working hard in Taiwan for over a decade, was found unresponsive one day. Urgently taken to the hospital for examination, the results revealed a cerebral infarction. Following an emergency craniotomy, the patient successfully recovered and was weaned off the ventilator. After two and a half months of inpatient treatment, the condition gradually stabilized, allowing the individual to return home! During the nearly five and a half hours of the flight, with the attentive care of the Formosa SOS team from Tungs' Hospital, the patient safely arrived in Jakarta and continued recovery at home. Each successful transfer requires the collaborative efforts of various departments, and thus, sincere thanks are extended to the Indonesian Representative Office in Taiwan and EVA Air for their assistance in ensuring the smooth completion of the entire transfer process. Once again, heartfelt gratitude is expressed. Understanding Cerebral Infarction: Cerebral infarction may manifest warning signs in advance, such as sudden headaches, visual abnormalities, difficulty speaking, etc. If you or someone around you experiences these symptoms, seeking medical attention immediately is crucial. Promoting a healthy lifestyle, including a low-fat diet, regular exercise, quitting smoking, and limiting alcohol consumption, is advocated. Regular check-ups, especially for those at risk of chronic diseases, are key to preventing cerebral infarction. Cerebral infarction is a severe cerebrovascular disease, but through these simple lifestyle habits and timely medical care, we can better prevent and address the risks.
