Residents in Missouri may benefit from learning more about the statistics related to traumatic brain injuries and rehospitalization rates. Researchers performing a study found that every year, one-fifth of the patients suffering from traumatic brain injuries were rehospitalized within one to three years following the date of the incident. The researchers concluded that rehospitalization costs should be considered when evaluating the long-term ramifications of these injuries.

What tests are used to diagnose cancer?

Missouri residents may be interested in learning how medical professionals diagnose cancer. In order to diagnose this potentially fatal disease, a doctor might first check to see if there are any abnormal lumps in a patient's body.

In either case, the lumps would need to be examined under a microscope before determining whether they are cancerous or benign.
