Amenorrhea is the absence of a girl or woman’s menstrual cycle (period); for women, diagnosis is after 3 months without a period, and girls are diagnosed if they have not had a period by age 15. Causes range from pregnancy, breastfeeding and menopause (natural amenorrhea) to medications and lifestyle conditions, like low body fat and excessive training or exercise for girls.

Amyloidosis is a rare disease that happens when amyloid, an abnormal protein usually made in bone marrow, is deposited in any organ or tissue of the body. Amyloidosis is diagnosed with a tissue biopsy and usually affects the liver, heart, digestive and nervous systems. There is no cure but treatment can help limit the body’s production of amyloid, lessening symptoms.

An uncommon cancer, anal cancer appears in the anal canal, the short tube at the end of the rectum through which stool passes out of the body. There are several types of anal cancer categorized by the types of tumors that develop. Squamous cell carcinomas are in the anus caused by squamous cells that line most of the anal canal; basal cell carcinomas are skin cancer that affects areas of the skin exposed to the sun; and gastrointestinal stromal tumors are likely to form in the stomach or small intestines.

An anal fissure is a tear in the lining of the anal canal or anus that may be caused by trauma to the anus and anal canal by chronic constipation, straining to have a bowel movement, prolonged diarrhea, anal sex and anal stretching or insertion of foreign objects into the anus. Anal fissures can be painful and may bleed.
