A while ago I was sitting in the waiting room of a local chiropractor. I hasten to add that I was not seeing a chiropractor but my sports masseur, who has a room there. The receptionist was chatting to one of the chiropractors, showing her a photograph of a friend of hers with breast cancer and asked me to look too. The photograph showed a pleasant elderly woman with a large fungating lesion of her breast.

Benign breast disease is common, although the incidence is sparsely documented in the literature and is probably quite underestimated. The main reason is that it is regarded as unimportant, with far more attention being focused on breast cancer. However, benign breast disease is far more common than breast cancer. There is now increasing interest because patients demand investigation and treatment of their symptoms.

Otitis media (OM) is an inflammatory (possibly infectious) condition of the middle ear, together with fluid behind an intact tympanic membrane. OM may be classified in relation to the effusion composition, i.e. serous (SOM), mucoid (MOM), or purulent (POM). However, these three entities are just different stages of a dynamic process - SOM progresses to MOM, and POM, as it resolves, usually progresses to SOM. OM is better classified by clinical stage.
