High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
Hypertension increases your risk of heart attack, stroke, and kidney failure.
Chronic Laryngitis
Laryngitis is an inflammation of the larynx, the "voice box" that contains the vocal cords in the upper portion of the neck. Chronic laryngitis is a more persistent disorder that produces lingering hoarseness and other voice changes.
Lung Cancer
One of the most common cancers, lung cancer usually occurs when a cancer-causing agent, or carcinogen, triggers the growth of abnormal cells in the lung.
Stroke Overview
A stroke is a brain injury that occurs because the brain's blood supply is interrupted.
Head and Neck Cancer
Head and neck cancer begins with the abnormal growth of cells. These cells multiply out of control, eventually forming a tumor in part of the head or neck.
Esophageal Cancer
Esophageal cancer is the abnormal growth of cells in the esophagus, the tube that carries food and drink from your throat to your stomach.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) refers to a group of disorders that damage the lungs and make breathing increasingly more difficult over time.
Stomach Cancer
Stomach cancer, also called gastric cancer, is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that form the inner lining of the stomach.
Pancreatic Cancer
Cancer of the pancreas is abnormal cell growth in the tissue of the pancreas.
Gallbladder and Bile Duct Cancer
The gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped pouch that lies beneath the liver, in the upper abdomen. It stores bile. This fluid, produced by the liver, helps digest fat. The gallbladder releases bile into the small intestine through the bile duct. This thin tube connects the liver and gallbladder to the small intestine. Cancer develops when abnormal cells in these structures multiply and grow rapidly.
