Searching for list of Symptoms for all diseases and disease probabilities

Hello all,

   Can someone point me to a free database of the probabilities of all
diseases and to a database of symptoms for each disease?
   I am researching how to validate the quality of data/input on the
web and wish to rate what my web visitors may enter against what are
known measures. I found surprising little so far and that is probably
due to not knowing how to phrase my question to the search engines. I
did find a tabulation of proabilities for chronic diseases
( and the IDC-10 codes
which enumerates all diseases but these will not make my system
complete. I have found viruses mapped to symptoms but am looking for
this by each disease.

Thank you in advance,
Tim Jowers

Fungal Infection on penis?


I hope my question is posted to an appropriate group. If not, I
apologize and please refer me to the correct group.

About 2 months ago I noticed a cluster of four very small (about 1 mm
diameter) sores on the glans of my penis very close to where the glans
meets the shaft. In the same general area, there are several much much
smaller red spots. The sores are reddish and pinkish in color. The
sores are not painful, have no peeling, and could possibly be mildly
itchy but its hard for me to say for sure that the itchiness isn’t all
in my head.

At first I thought little of it and waited for about a couple of weeks
for the sores to heal on their own. When their appearance didn’t
change at all, I went to see a GP. He gave me a brief visual
examination and told me that he thought it was a fungal infection for
which he told me to treat twice daily with clotrimazole cream. He also
ordered blood tests for HSV1 and HSV2 antibody tests both of which
came back negative. I bought the generic brand of clotrimazole and
used twice daily for 10 days and noticed no improvement. I returned to
the GP and he prescribed something called Nystatin and Triamcinolone
Acetonide Cream, USP which he said was a bit stronger and contained an
anti-inflamatory. He also ordered blood tests (at my request) for
syphilus, AIDS and several other STDs all of which came back negative.
I applied the new cream twice daily for almost 2 weeks and again saw
no improvement. During this time, I was on a backpacking trip through
europe (which would have been more fun had I not been constantly
thinking about my fungal infection). I wasn’t always able to shower
each day and sweated considerably. Also, I wasn’t always able to store
the cream at "controlled room temperature" which may have affected its
biological activity. During this time I noticed 1 very very small sore
on the shaft of my penis and close to it, a small white bump that
looked similar to the ones on my scrotum where hair follicles grow
from. I also noticed veins on the underside of my penis where the
glans meets the shaft (about 3 mm long) that may be redder than
normal. Also there is one of those white bumps that looks like a hair
follicle in that area too. I don’t know if the new symptoms I noticed
were always there or if I only just noticed them later because I was
looking down there more often. Upon the advice of another traveller, I
started to use a type of baby powder with an anti-fungal agent which I
purchased at an italian pharmacy. I used that twice daily for about a
week and there was no improvement. At times I thought there was
improvement but I was probably fooled by the baby powder. After this I
stopped all treatments and returned to the USA and saw my GP again. He
gave me another brief visual examination and admitted that he really
didn’t know what I have. He refered me to a urologist but I can’t get
an appointment with him until a month from now. Until now, none of the
sores I have noticed have healed or even changed in appearance.

I should also mention that I cannot recall ever having athlete’s foot
my entire life. Then, much to my surprise, 2 days ago, I discovered
red irritation and peeling between my pinky and ring tows on both
feet. I’m guessing this is athlete’s foot but there isn’t any
itchiness and burning associated with it. In fact, the only discomfort
I experience is when I spread my toes with my fingers, there is a mild

The genital condition is causing me significant anxiety and I was
hoping someone on the net could give me some insight as to what I have
and any possible treatment as I really can’t wait another month to see
the urologist.

Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for your advice,

A Time to Return to TRUE SCIENCE…

Now that I’ve — at least temporarily — silenced my critics
in and sci.anthropology.paleo, I repeat:

The theory of the evolution of man is the Mt. Everest
of lies and cover-ups.

It has gotten this far only because of deceit, deception,
collusion and conspiracy by members of the Scientific

They prefer highfalutin’ nonsense — could be, would be,
should be — instead of facts and physical evidence,
which is what science is supposed to be about.

They can deny and demean the petrified bones, teeth and
even soft organs (some human) that were discovered
between anthracite veins.

But it won’t make them go away.

You see, they’re the concrete evidence that the Carboniferous
Period — some 280 million years ago — was not at all
what science has long taught and preached, let alone
a mindboggling catastrophe that apparently blew apart and
buried man and animal alike..

You’d think it’s about time for a serious investigation,
a time to return to true science.

Man as Old as Coal


The evolution of man:  Greatest conspiracy against truth in the
history of science.


>                  ~~  MAN AS OLD AS COAL  ~~
>          (Evolution Kaput in Wake of Startling Evidence)          


> (Strata geologically dated at a minimum of 280 million years)

This specimen was identified as a petrified human cranium,
a skull with the eyesockets broken off, by the late Dr. Wilton
Krogman, one of the world’s leading human anatomists and author
of "The Human Skeleton in Forensic Medicine." He is shown
examining it in the second photo. Moments after the photo was taken,
a medical doctor walked into the room at the Cooper Clinic in
Lancaster, Pa., and Krogman invited him over to see "the oldest human
skull ever found."


A CATscan of the above specimen revealed a second protrusion
that isn’t visible to the naked eye. It showed it is located precisely
where it would be expected to be found in a human cranium.
That report follows:


This specimen also had tested positive for the presence of Haversian
canals under microscopic scrutiny. Additionally, American Medical
Laboratories in Chantilly, Va., performed testing of calculus analysis
by crystallography and revealed that it contains "a composition of
dried blood intermingled with a few small crystals resembling calcium
oxalate dihydrate."

That report follows:



Another petrified human skull — this one embedded in a boulder
that weights some 3,000 pounds. It was found within 100 feet of the
previous skull and a year later, also having come from between
anthracite veins in Schuylkill County, Pa


A microcopic photo of granules removed from the specimen
reveal the presence of Haversian canals. This is the same
specimen that was emphatically denied as being bone by
the Smithsonian Institution. It earlier had stated that
microscopic examination of the cell structure is required,
then ignored that test completely and responded by saying
it had performed "x-ray analysis" which, it deceitfully claimed,
confirmed that the specimen is not bone. The fact is, "x-ray analysis"
is not an appropriate test to determine whether an object is bone.



A petrified human femur still in shale, a near-cousin to coal, which
also had been removed from between anthracite veins. Portions of
the bulb ends have broken off.



This specimen was identified as a portion of a tibia by Wilton
Krogman. It contains Haversian canals, the telltale sign of bone,
embarrassing Andrew Macrae, then of Calgary University, who had
performed fraudulent testing for cellular structure. For his test
results, he had used a meticulously prepared ground section that had
been prepared from a rock or concretion.


A scanning electronic microscope (SEM) was used to examine
the inner surface features of this specimen to compare it with
cadaver bone at the same power magnification. Here are the
SEM photos at 2,000X.


This is the same specimen that Andrew Macrae played fraudulent games
with. He then posted photos of ground sections on his web page,
claiming they were views of the cellular structure of the specimen and
insisting it wasn’t bone because no circles (Haversian canals) could
be found. However, the photo beneath it taken later shows it DOES
contain circles — Haversian canals — and, therefore, IS petrified
bone. It was just one of several fraudulent scientific and/or
deceiving tests conducted on some of these specimens by members
of the Scientifiic Establishment. The photo on the left in the
following URL is what Macrae posted. The next two show what
a ground section really looks like.


Additionally, American Medical Laboratories had performed calculus
analysis by crystallography on this particular specimen and reported
that it "consisted predominately of dried blood and protein."
That report follows:



An assorment of miscellaneous specimens, primarily portions of
petrified mandibles (jaw bones), found between the same coal veins:



A human lung, petrified:



A pair of petrified fetuses. The large one, which has been
transformed to a coal-like substance, measures 6 1/2 inches
in length.



A petrified gall bladder, with a CATscan later revealling the
presence of a gall stone inside.


This is one of the specimens that was tested by American
Medical Laboratories via calculus analysis by crystallography.
It revealed the specimen "consists of a few small pieces of dried
blood," adding that "none of the constituents normally found
in urinary calculi are present." (which comes as no surprise since
the specimen it tested is petrified).
That report follows:



Portion of dinosaur foot embedded in anthracite-bearing shale:



This was the very first discovery of petrified bone in coal-bearing
Carboniferous strata in June 1981. It resembled a giant skull and
the Smithsonian expressd an interest in examining
it personally. However, its experts dismissed it as a rock or
concretion without any testing whatsoever, not even revealing that
a microscopic study of cell structure would accurately identify
whether it is bone. Later, a pair of petrified teeth — a premolar and
a canine — were found inside the jaw area. One was subjected to an
infrared scan which revealed its origin is that of a bone or a tooth.


The premolar that was found inside the jaw area:



A petrified handcrafted wooden handle, which has been transformed
to anthracite, found between coal veins.



A portion of petrified bone still in slate (or shale), near cousin of
coa, that confirms the bone is older than the material in which
it is embedded:

Pneumonia – Was It Treated Properly?

My mother recently passed away of pneumonia in Florida.  She was 89,
strong with
no concomitant illnesses and no prior hospitalizations.  I am
suspicious that she was not treated properly.

She was admitted to the ER with a white count of 39,000 and a clear
x-ray.  After 18 hours on antibiotics (levaquin / ceftriaxone) the
count went down to 20,000 but an xray now showed pneumonia which
progressively worsened over the ensuing days.  She was in the hospital
for over two weeks and the count hovered around 20,000 the entire
time.  No changes whatsoever were made to the antibiotic regimen.
Creatinine and BUN were in their nomal ranges.  Two days
before the end she took a sudden turn for the worse and her white
count shot up to 41,000 and finally 45,000.

Am I missing something here?  It seems counterintuitive to allow a
white count of 20k for an extended period.  Wouldn’t that just
guarantee the creation and multiplication of resistant bacteria?

Thanks for any replies that might clarify this for me.

Hormonic hairs!

I’m a 21 year old girl .I have some unusual ,black,thick & long hairs
grown between my breasts (about 10 -15),under  my belly botton(about
10).They have been appeard since I was about 18.Please note that I
have an almost regular period. I visited a doctor & she advised me
Electrolysis or Laser .But I’m looking for a more permanent way to
destroy them by their sources.e.g some kinds of nutrients may help me
It may helps U to know ,my family have a nutrient habit of having lots
of meat  & they may have lots of hormones. Sth else that may help u,my
