The worried mother of a 4-year-old son misinterpreted his watery eyes to be a sign of common cold or conjunctivitis. However, it turns out that after diagnosis, the body was revealed to be ailing from symptoms of a rare version of cancer.
Carly Cooke, the mother said that this disease is so unexpected and rare making it hard to understand or even look for. It was last September when all of this started. The boy, Harri Cooke from Gloucestershire started showing symptoms with a swollen face after which his mother went in for proper testing.
Following January, the child was diagnosed with the cancer named Ewing’s sarcoma. This rare form of cancer in the soft tissue or bone can occur anywhere in the arms, legs, hands, feet, chest, spine, pelvis, skull, or anywhere in the body. This form of cancer is common in young adults or adolescents leading to swelling or pain, fever, broken bones, or lumps.
This cancer caused the boy’s bone structure close to the eyes to deform which led to that unfortunate swelling. The treatment protocol for this form of cancer involved blood transfusions, proton beam based treatment, and chemotherapy. The treatment helped remission the cancer but the parents are now worried about any future damage caused by this treatment.
Getting to the Root of It! Lebanese Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Mohammad Waizani Explains Root Canal Treatments
Did you know that more than 15 million teeth are treated and saved every year? One of the most common treatments received are root canal treatments. At Dr. Mohammad Waizani’s clinic in Beirut, he specializes in making sure anyone who comes in with a root canal, leaves with a bright smile!
A root canal treatment is a dental procedure in which the soft center of the tooth called a ‘pulp’ is removed. The pulp is made out of blood vessels, connective tissues, and nerves. In these cases, the pulp is infected after being exposed to bacteria that causes a lot of pain. The crown of the tooth is usually still intact despite the pulp being dead.
Root canals can be caused by several reasons such as a chip or cracked tooth, deep decay due to cavities that are left untreated, an injury to the tooth, and multiple procedures on the same tooth.
Some of the signs of root canal infections include the following:
- Constant toothache
- Heat sensation and swelling of gums
- Sensitivity to heat and cold
- Swollen jaw
- Discoloration of teeth
- Pain with applied pressure
Dr. Waizani explains how this surgical procedure works to remove the pulp and ensure the tooth doesn’t get infected. He starts by applying anesthetics to the gum and around the infected tooth. Next, the pulp is removed through a small opening at the top of the tooth. After the procedure is done, his patients’ recovery includes antibiotics to ensure that that infection does not flare up post-procedure. This is followed by a temporary filling.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned, there is no need to panic. Contact Dr. Waizani to schedule your appointment!
