What is Urinary Tract Infection?

urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bacterial infection that affects part of the urinary tract. When it affects the lower urinary tract it is known as a simple cystitis (a bladder infection) and when it affects the upper urinary tract it is known as pyelonephritis (a kidney infection). Symptoms from a lower urinary tract include painful urination and either frequent urination or urge to urinate (or both), while those of pyelonephritis include fever andflank pain in addition to the symptoms of a lower UTI. In the elderly and the very young, symptoms may be vague or non specific. The main causal agent of both types is Escherichia coli, however other bacteria, viruses or fungi may rarely be the cause.

Can a man get infected during cunnilingus or performing oral sex on a woman

Can I get HIV from Cunnilingus?

Yes. Cunnilingus, oral sex on a woman, is considered "possibly unsafe" without a latex or plastic barrier. If the woman has her period or a vaginal infection, it's considered "unsafe." "Possibly unsafe" activities have a smaller chance of transmitting HIV than behaviors in the "unsafe" category (which generally involve semen or blood coming into contact with mucous membranes in the rectum, vagina, or mouth). "Possibly unsafe" activities do, however, carry a risk of HIV (and STD) transmission.

Colon Cancer observed survival rate

Survival rates are often used by doctors as a standard way of discussing a person's prognosis (outlook). Some patients may want to know the survival statistics for people in similar situations, while others may not find the numbers helpful, or may even not want to know them. If you decide that you don’t want to know them, stop reading here and skip to the next section.
The 5-year survival rate refers to the percentage of patients who live at least 5 years after their cancer is diagnosed. Of course, many people live much longer than 5 years (and many are cured).
In order to get 5-year survival rates, doctors have to look at people who were treated at least 5 years ago. Improvements in treatment since then may result in a more favorable outlook for people now being diagnosed with colorectal cancer.
