Oppositional disorder
A recurring pattern in children of disobedience towards authority along with frequent angry outbursts and temper tantrums. Symptoms go beyond normal defiance in children.
Optic neuritis
An inflammation of the optic nerve, the nerve that brings visual information from the eyeball to the brain. This can lead to comlete or partial loss of vision. It has many known causes, most commonly multiple sclerosis. Other causes include certain infections, auto-immune conditions, and drugs.
Oral leukoplakia
White patches on the inner surface of the mouth that cannot be rubbed off. The tissue has a characteristic appearance under the microscope. The cause is unknown. Though not cancerous, these patches may eventually lead to cancer.
Oral mucosal lesion
Any tissue abnormality to the lining of the inside of the mouth, such as a simple cut, a candida yeast infection, herpes outbreak, canker sores, and various auto-immune conditions.
Oral thrush (yeast infection)
An infection of the mouth with the Candida species of fungus. This fungus is naturally found in most people's mouths, but can overgrow when the immune system is weakened. Though common in infants, it can be a sign of other immune system problems in adults.
Orbital cellulitis
An infection of the soft tissues surrounding the eyeball, such as the eyelids, eyebrow, and cheeks. It is very dangerous, potentially leading to blindness or spread to the brain. It is often caused by bacteria spreading from a sinus infection. It is a medical emergency.
Orthostatic hypotension
A common condition in which blood pressure suddenly falls when standing or sitting up, leading to lightheadedness, dizziness, or fainting. Though this is quite common, if symptoms are persistent and severe despite proper hydration, it may be a sign of an underlying issue.
Osteoarthritis
Pain and immobility in joints that is the result of wearing down of the cartilage or even the underlying bone. It most commonly occurs in heavily used joints such as the hip, knees, hands, and spine.
Osteochondroma
A non-dangerous tumor composed of cartilage and bone, typically jutting out of a bone. It is most commonly found in the shoulder or knee, and only requires treatment if it is causing significant symptoms.
Osteochondrosis
A group of diseases, occurring in childhood and adolescence, characterized by bone death at the growth centers of bones. It is often thought to involve disruption of blood supply, though the exact cause is unknown. Often the bones will heal on their own, though sometimes there will be permanent damage.
Osteomyelitis
An infection of the bone. Infections occur either by organisms in the bloodstream, by local spread (e.g. from skin infections nearby), or by penetrative force (e..g during surgery).
Osteoporosis
A condition marked by loss of the minerals that harden the bone, leading to increased risk of bone breaks. Bone loss can be prevented by resistance exercises and calcium supplementation.
Otitis externa (swimmer's ear)
Inflammation of the ear canal outside of the ear drum. It is most commonly due to bacteria. It affects all age groups, however children are most commonly affected. A moist ear canal facilitates bacterial growth (hence the name, "swimmer's ear").
Otitis media
An infection of the middle part of the ear canal. It typically occurs after a cold or flu because of blockage inside of the ear canal.
Otosclerosis
An abnormal hardening of the bones of the middle ear, potentially leading to hearing loss. It is genetic and runs in families.
Ovarian cancer
A malignant transformation of the tissues of the ovaries, the female reproductive organs that hold the eggs. These cancers are often hereditary and sometimes involve mutations in the same genes that cause breast cancer.
Ovarian cyst
A collection of fluid contained by a membranous sack on the ovary. While some ovarian cysts are painful, others are completely asymptomatic. Cysts may rupture and, in rare cases, lead to bleeding.
Ovarian torsion
A condition in which the ovaries, the reproductive organs in women that carry the eggs, become twisted to such a degree that they restrict blood flow. This is a medical emergency, and can lead to permanent damage to the ovaries if not surgically repaired. The exact cause is unknown, but it is associated with masses in the ovaries.
Overflow incontinence
The unintentional loss of urine due to buildup of urine in the bladder, either due to blockage of the bladder outlet, or loss of nervous control of the muscles that contract the bladder. In the latter case, the bladder may become full without any urge to urinate.
Paget disease
A disease affecting the body's normal process of continually breaking down and rebuilding bones, known as remodeling. In Paget's disease, bone is broken down faster than it is rebuilt, leading to fragile and misshapen bones. The exact cause is unknown.
Pain after an operation
Pain experienced in the time directly after surgery. This pain may be normal or may indicate a problem. Common types of pain after surgery are pain at the incision site and whole body aches.
Pain disorder affecting the neck
Any problem leading to pain in the neck. This is very common and may be caused by a variety of issues, including unusual posture during sleep, stress, bulging spinal discs, or even referred pain during a heart attack.
