Some General Information about our Diagnosis
Web Medicine focuses on Common problems, not rare ones. Headache, certain abdominal conditions, low back, and chest pain account for more than half of hospitalizations in the U.S. These four symptoms are included in our present ensemble of expert systems.
Web Medicine asks questions about every body system and no symptom will go undetected. WebMed does a complex analysis of all information gathered about your symptoms and will produce a list of all possible and probable medical diagnoses.
It is very helpful to evaluate symptoms and signs in diagnosing the causes of health problems and in monitoring the status of diagnosed diseases. Moreover, assessment of symptoms and signs is important during treatment with medications in order to determine the effectiveness of treatment and the development of side effects.
What are Symptoms and What is the significance of symptoms?
Symptoms are manifestations or causes of a disease or group of diseases. Symptoms are those complaints or problems that bring a patient to the doctor or other health care provider.
Understanding the significance of symptoms can be crucial. Headache and nausea can be manifestations of such diverse conditions as flu, depression, or migraine headache. They may also represent more ominous conditions, such as brain tumors, ruptured aneurysms or hydrocephalus. Abdominal pain can be triggered by such varied conditions as indigestion, gallstones or colon cancer.
Symptoms may be chronic or acute. They may occur suddenly or be progressive. Symptoms may also be recurrent.
The important thing to remember, is that understanding the underlying cause of your symptoms may be crucial. Education of patients about their symptoms improves the chance of obtaining the right diagnosis and obtaining prompt and correct treatment.

Depression and anxiety disorders affect behavior. In the scalp balding, psoriasis and skin cancer can occur. Ageing of the eye may require plastic surgery or cataract surgery.

Lung cancer, mesothelioma, asthma, bronchitis and emphysema occur in the lungs. The esophagus may be involved in GERD, reflux esophagitis and cancer. Excessive sweating can occur from sympathetic nerve problems in the chest.
Spinal symptoms occur from ruptured discs, fractures and spinal Stenosis. Chronic pain syndromes may be associated with these disorders.
How a Diagnosis is Formulated from Your Symptoms
Health screening begins by identifying the part of the body where your symptoms are located. Although symptoms may occur in isolation, they frequently occur in groups or clusters.
Web Medicine's technology uses these recurring groups of symptoms to allow you to diagnose or identify the disease or condition you might have. Once your health screening has reached the stage where several possible diseases or medical conditions are identified, it is necessary to read and compare the underlying traits of those diseases from our database.
Web Medicine helps you find your diagnosis from over 2000 diseases. These include disorders as diverse as breast cancer, mesothelioma, anxiety, osteoporosis, lymphoma, Alzheimer's disease, allergies, dry skin, excessive sweating, menopause, panic attacks, asthma, depression, HIV, psoriasis, erectile dysfunction, diabetes, prostate cancer, acne, hair loss, lung cancer, IBS, dry eyes, hypertension, depression, brain tumor, heart attacks, ovarian cancer, colon cancer and ruptured disc.
Final diagnosis can only be determined by your physician or other health care provider. Tests and physical examination can help determine the need for further treatment.
What other Information can be Provided After the Diagnosis?

After finding the disease, you have the option to find all medical symptoms related to the selected disease. You will also be able to find other medical diseases that are related to the one you selected.

Webmedicine's self-screening tool allows patients in a relatively short period of time to identify the likely causes of their symptoms. The web-based program is revolutionary in that it approaches self-screening from the patient's point of view!

Of the approximately 2 million sites that provide "medical diagnosis," virtually all of them, including hospital websites, require the patient to know what their diagnosis is before they can research the implications of the disease/condition and the alternative treatment options. Physicians know that this approach is backwards. They always begin their evaluations of a patient by asking about the patient's symptoms, not by asking the patient what disease they have. The average person can tell you that they have a headache, pain in their lower back, or difficulty breathing, etc. However, they do not know why they have these symptoms, but they are interested in learning more about what is happening to their body.

Webmedicine's user-friendly navigation allows the patient to point to the part of their body where their symptoms are occurring. Webmedicine then presents the patient with symptom categories. Once a symptom category is selected, groups of symptoms are displayed in boxes. These boxes of symptoms typically occur in the conditions or diseases the patient may have. By selecting the most appropriate box, a list of possible conditions that might produce these symptoms is displayed. By reading the short summary of each condition, the user can further discriminate the most likely condition he/she is experiencing. WebMed provides links to physicians and specialists that treat these conditions. Additionally, links are offered to educational websites and to nationally known educational websites for each condaition to further assist the user in screening their condition and obtaining other useful information including potential treatment options.

Use our free online health screening to help determine the source of your medical symptoms. Symptoms are manifestations or causes of a disease or group of diseases. Symptoms are those complaints or problems that bring a patient to the doctor or other health care provider. The important thing to remember, is that understanding the underlying cause of your symptoms may be crucial. Education of patients about their symptoms improves the chance of obtaining the right diagnosis and obtaining prompt and correct treatment. Webmedicine's database currently covers approximately 20,000 symptoms and 1,200 diseases/conditions.
