Here are a few details that could help you understand the procedure, and lessen the worries.

What does the procedure involve? The procedure involves taking a small sample of tissues from the suspicious area for lab testing. This is necessary to determine whether the suspicious area has cancerous growth or not. Various methods are in use for this –

  • Core needle biopsy

Generates Ideas

Of the merger, emerges something new, which is the beginning of something innovative (See Innovation vs. Invention what is the difference?). But for that to happen, there has to be something that merges, few atoms generate few chemical reactions. Little knowledge and ideas, little creativity.
1. Read,
What discovering the warm water? Not really. The reading is a source of knowledge vital etc. But this is not a class of how to raise your children
II. One of the keys to generate ideas is read a lot, but not any item in depth, but much general knowledge. Keep learned many areas; yoga, kitchen, stock, travel, tantra.
Magazines of general knowledge, as reader’s digest,, (there are many examples) are ideal. The idea is, with this large number of general knowledge, provoking clashes of ideas of fields completely different (e.g.: yoga-travel), and you have a web page, of content on web sites and specialized centers in yoga.
The application of knowledge of an area, in another is one of the most successful innovations
2. Travel and learn about other cultures. It works on the technique of displacement.
Travel, see other models, ways of living, business. And this does not mean leaving the country. The region, a 2-3 hours of your house can be a source of ideas perfect.
New landscapes, sound, flavors, textures, shapes, everything is food for creativity.
Simply visit sites that do not have known. Do not have to go to China to be creative. Even in your own city.
3. Takes the time to experiment.
This is the most difficult. By family, society, comfort, “assume” (blunder in innovation), a group of mountaineering, reading, or first-aid is not productive, has nothing to offer.
Participates in new activities, sees even restaurant food, foreign non-governmental associations that never beeches visited: Something that has nothing to do with your work, and your area. If you are professional creative, takes a course of finance, if you are a financial, sees and takes a cooking course. The idea is that you feel insecure, ignorant, and open to any possibility and to learn.
If so far has not happened the idea of your life, is that it may have only one of the two ideas, one of the two atoms for chemical reaction. We are going, without fear, to be creative 7×2.
