It usually occurs due to the infections of small anal glands. The most common type of abscess is a perianal abscess, which appears as a painful boil-like swelling near the anus. Common symptoms of superficial or deeper anal abscesses include: • Pain– you may experience constant throbbing pain in the anal or buttock areas, which tends to get worse while sitting down. • Skin irritation– the skin around the anus may be irritated, swollen, or red. • Lumps near the anus. • Discharge of pus or bleeding • Constipation – you may experience pain or discomfort during the bowel movements. • Fever • Chills • Fatigue An anal abscess is a severe medical condition which needs immediate medical attention. Delay in treatment may lead to long-term medical complications. For more than 50 years, Experienced and professional specialists at Keimyung University Dongsan Hospital are offering quality treatments for anal abscesses. Along with the treatment, they eliminate the underlying cause to prevent the onset in the future. THYROID DISEASE Thyroid glands produce essential hormones that are necessary for the normal functioning of the body. Sometimes, these glands do not produce the right amount of hormones leading to thyroid diseases. Common symptoms of thyroid diseases may include fatigue, increased sensitivity to cold, constipation, dry skin, increased weight, puffiness on the face, and muscle weakness. At Keimyung University Dongsan Hospital, experts are using ultra-modern and advanced techniques such as Electrothermal Bipolar Vessel Sealing System and Harmonic Scalpel to ensure maximum patient comfort and satisfaction. They have set a mind-blowing record of 100% successful treatments for thyroid diseases. CORONARY HEART DISEASE Coronary arteries are the blood vessels responsible for the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. A large build-up of cholesterol within these arterial walls creates plaque. These plaques can cause the narrowing of coronary arteries leading to coronary heart diseases (CHD) or coronary artery diseases. Common symptoms of CHD may include squeezing, pressure, heaviness, tightening, burning, and aching sensations in the chest. Appropriate treatment on time can help reduce the risks and symptoms. Highly qualified and trained professionals at Keimyung University Dongsan hospital provide advanced and careful diagnosis services such as electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, nuclear stress test, cardiac angiogram, cardiac catheterization, and cardiac CT Scan to evaluate the conditions of the patient carefully.

HYPERTENSIVE HEART DISEASES Serious heart problems caused by long-term and persistent high blood pressure are known as hypertensive heart diseases.
