The term "epithelium" refers to cells that line hollow organs and glands and those that make up the outer surface of the body.Epithelial cells help to protect or enclose organs. Most produce mucus or other secretions.

They(neurosurgeons) had to cut your neck and mess up your spinal canal just a few months ago and you probably recovered 'spontaneously' on your own...
Tuberculosis is difficult to diagnose because the signs and symptoms are seen in other diseases, such as the following: Carcinoma of the lung (frequently creates cavities in lung tissue) ...
patients with pulmonary tuberculosis who present the full spectrum of symptoms and signs are unusual in developed countries, but doctors and health workers often see such patients in developing countries. Lung cancer has become a more common cause of some or all of these symptoms in developed countries

I went to the hospital today as my neck was hurting after the car crash yesterday. Had my neck X-rayed. There was no damage from the accident but the doctor did find things that he didn't like the look of.I injured my back about 25 years ago & the damage the doc saw today was probably due to that. He said they'd found what sounded like "a number of residual changes". He asked me if I'd ever been advised that surgery might be necessary. I said that I'd been told years ago that I might need an operation 1 day. He advised me to go to my GP to see about having the operation sometime soon.I'm not a happy beaver I can't be sure he actually did say "residual" changes, but that's what it sounded like. Does anyone know if that's right & what it means? And what surgery would be required?
