Autoimmune Diseases Screening

Autoimmune diseases arise when the immune system attacks one or more of the body's normal constituents as if they were invaders. When the immune system fails to recognize "self" it may produce immune cells or antibodies (called autoantibodies) that target its own cells, tissues, and/or organs. Those attacks cause inflammation and tissue damage that lead to autoimmune disorders.Symptoms:FatugueGeneral feeling of being unwellDizzinessJoint PainRashesLow grade feverScreening/DiagnosisLaboratory test

Thyroid Cancer Diagnosis & Treatment

Your thyroid is shaped like a small butterfly, and is usually found inside the lower front of your neck. It’s a gland that controls your metabolism. It also releases hormones that direct many functions in your body, including how you use energy, how you produce heat, and how you consume oxygen. Thyroid cancer develops when cells change or mutate. The abnormal cells begin multiplying in your thyroid and, once there are enough of them, they form a tumor. Symptoms: Neck, throat pain Lump in your neck Difficulty swallowing Vocal changes, hoarseness Cough Diagnosis/Screening: Medical History and physical exam Biopsy Imaging tests Ultrasound Radioiodine scan

Dr.Cheong did a great job with my husband’s sinus infection surgery. He explained everything to us in a very clear manner before and after the operation. He is patient and friendly and even helped us with my husband’s insurance. Thumbs up for the regular check-up appointment update and services. It’s very effective. Highly recommended.
