What Are the Most Common causes of Polyps?

A: Polyps are abnormal growths of tissue that protrude from mucous membranes. They can be found anywhere in the body where there are mucous membranes, but polyps are most commonly found in the colon, nose and reproductive system. The basic cause of polyps is genetic. In the body, healthy cells grow, divide and then stop dividing in an orderly manner. A polyp forms when the cells keep dividing after new cells are no longer needed.. Generally speaking, however, with the exception of this broad genetic cause, researchers have not been able to establish the exact causes of polyps. What scientists have been able to do is identify certain risk factors that are associated with...

This lining develops after ovulation to receive a fertilized egg. When pregnancy occurs, the lining remains in place, and the woman...


What Are the Common causes of Elevated DHEA Levels?

A: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a hormone, released by the adrenal gland, used in the manufacture of androgens, estrogens and other hormones in both men and women. Common causes of elevated DHEA levels include stress, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), hyperinsulinemia and androgen-secreting tumors (ASTs). People who choose to take DHEA supplements might also raise their DHEA levels above the normal range. While this hormone has certain benefits, there are also negative side effects of elevated DHEA levels, including heart palpitations, weight gain and hair loss. People who believe their DHEA levels might be high should visit a physician to undergo testing and receive any necessary...


What Are the Different causes of Posterior Heel Pain?

A: Posterior heel pain, or pain felt along the back side of the heel, can be brought on by several causes. A bone spur may have developed, often as a consequence of friction between the Achilles tendon and the calcaneus, or heel bone. Tendonitis or other damage to the Achilles tendon, which crosses the back of the ankle and attaches to the heel, can bring on significant posterior heel pain, particularly if the tendon has ruptured. Additionally, bursitis can afflict this region, as the small sacs or bursa between the Achilles tendon and the calcaneus are susceptible to inflammation. As these conditions are so closely related, they tend to develop not in isolation but...


What Are Common causes of a Tongue Skin Tag?

A: Experts believe that the most common cause of a tongue skin tag is friction — small, loose fleshy growths can appear on areas where skin frequently rubs against skin. Age and obesity have been found to increase the likelihood of skin tags developing in individuals. Significant increases in hormone levels are also correlated with skin tag development. In some cases, people can confuse small folds in the plica fimbriata, a natural structure of the tongue, for skin tags; in others, it could be a wart rather than an actual tag. The only serious possible cause for a tongue skin tag is mouth cancer, although these cases are much rarer than others.. The chance a single individual has
