Breast cancer forms in cells of the breast. Signs and symptoms may include a breast lump or thickening that feels different from the surrounding tissue, bloody discharge from the nipple, a change in size, shape or appearance of the breast, nipple changes, peeling, scaling or flaking of the breast skin and redness or pitting of the skin over the breast.

Bronchiectasis is a disease marked by permanent thickening of parts in the lungs. It can be caused by many different conditions, like pneumonia or cystic fibrosis, and symptoms include cough with mucus and/or blood, pain and shortness of breath.

A bunion is a “bump” on the joint at the base of the big toe that forms when the bone or tissue at the big toe joint moves out of place. The toe is forced to bend toward the others, causing an often painful lump of bone on the foot. Because this joint carries a lot of the body's weight while walking, bunions can cause extreme pain if left untreated and even making wearing shoes difficult or impossible.

Carcinoid tumors grow slowly and usually appear in the gastrointestinal tract or lung. Gastrointestinal symptoms include skin flushing and diarrhea, and symptoms that appear if the tumor is in the lung include difficulty breathing. Carcinoid tumors typically begin in the cells that produce hormones of various organs in the gastrointestinal tract like stomach or intestines, though they can develop in the pancreas or the testicles in men and the ovaries in women.

Carotid Artery Disease

Carotid artery disease happens when fat and cholesterol deposits (plaque) clog the carotid arteries on each side of the neck that deliver blood to the brain and head. Either a narrowing of the artery occurs, or when pieces of the plaque break off and lodge in a large artery, there is a blockage. This increases the risk of stroke because blood supply to the brain is reduced. There may be no symptoms, but if stroke symptoms like slurred speech and blurry vision occur, it should be treated as a medical emergency.
