Elastofibroma Dorsi


I just watched the Suzuki Cup semifinal match (1st-leg) between Malaysia and Vietnam. Against all the odds, Malaysia bet Vietnam 2-0, yeayy!! The second leg will be next week in Hanoi, hope Malaysia will qualify for the final match, amin.

Okay now, enough of relaxing. Now, its time for serious business.

This is the topic that I'm gonna read tonite. I am sure many of you will say "what on earth is this thing?" Hahaha....ELASTOFIBROMA DORSI (I'm not going to copy-and-paste all the medical-related details here because I know most of you will yawn in no time if I do that hehehe)

Actually, one of my unties was diagnosed to have this problem (a provisional diagnosis of course, they haven't done a biopsy yet...) on her back, to be exact, there is a mass (or lay people will call it a swelling) on the right side of her scapula (just like the picture above - this is not my untie, i got the pic from the net). I am going to have a discussion with Ms Chye, one of a prominent Orthopaedic Oncology and Reconstructive Surgery Consultant in Kuala Lumpur Hospital tomorrow.

If everything goes according to plan, my untie will be operated on next week, 20/12/2010 in UKM Medical Centre.

Please pray for her. Hope everything will run smoothly, insyaAllah.

Wanna know more, go here and here.
