Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder affecting women, in which the ovaries produce an overabundance of male hormones like testosterone. Sometimes, PCOS causes cysts on the ovaries, but not always – there are many different symptoms. Treatment varies depending on the cause and primary symptoms.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes red, raised, scaly patches to appear on the skin. It most commonly occurs on the scalp, elbows and knees, but can appear anywhere on the body. There is no cure for psoriasis, but it can usually be controlled with treatment.
Schizophrenia is a complex mental disorder that affects the way a person thinks, feels and acts. Likely causes include genes and lifestyle factors; and treatment can involve medication, counselling and hospitalisation. For some people, it is a chronic, life-long condition; while for others it will only last a brief period.
