How to give allergy shots?
Posted 4 years ago in Allergies by CodePhantom


Unlike vaccines and other shots, allergy shots are given in the subcutaneous tissue, not the muscle. Pinch the skin of the upper arm, but not the muscle, and insert the needle halfway into the pinched tissue. The link below gives a step-by-step illustrated guide.

What is Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Soft tissue sarcoma is a disease in which cancer cells are found in soft tissue in the body. Soft tissue includes muscles, tendons, connective tissue, fat, blood vessels, nerves, and synovial (joint) tissue.

There are many types of soft tissue sarcoma, including: alveolar soft part sarcoma, angiosarcoma, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, desmoid sarcoma, fibrosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma, liposarcoma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, lymphoma (lymphosarcoma), malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor, rhabdomyosarcoma, and synovial sarcoma. Treatment will differ depending on the type of cancer and the location and size of the tumor.

Cancer occurs when cells in the body (in this case, soft tissue cells) divide without control or order. Normally, cells divide in a regulated manner. If cells keep dividing uncontrollably when new cells are not needed, a mass of tissue forms, called a growth or tumor. The term cancer refers to malignant tumors, which can invade nearby tissues and spread to other parts of the body. A benign tumor usually does not invade or spread.
