Harry's Health Advice Service

Hello! My name is Harry. I must start by explaining that I am not a medical professional and none of the advice in this blog should be used to diagnose an illness. The information in this blog will help you to gain a good knowledge and understanding of many different medical conditions and procedures, but if you have any symptoms or pain, you should always book an appointment with your local GP or visit the local emergency department at your local hospital. I have learnt about various medical conditions from my uncle who is a GP. He would often explain the different cases he had seen and would let me read his medical textbooks. I hope you find my blog useful.

The last myth that surrounds endometriosis is that it has the potential of developing into cancer, and this is untrue too. Read More
