Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are passed from person to person through sexual contact. Often there are no symptoms, so an infected person may not know they are putting others at risk for an STD. When symptoms are present, they include anything from genital sores to pain during sex. Examples of STDs include bacterial infections like gonorrhea and syphilis and viral infections like HPV (human papillomavirus) and HIV.

When a shoulder dislocates, it means the top of the upper arm bone has either partially or fully slipped out of the joint socket. Because the shoulder joint moves in all directions, it can be unstable and prone to dislocation. Injury is usually the cause of dislocation. Swelling, pain, weakness and other symptoms may occur, especially if the dislocation causes a ligament or tendon to tear or damages a nerve. Once a shoulder dislocates, chances are good it will dislocate again.

Shoulder instability occurs when the top of the upper arm bone has either partially or fully slipped out of the joint socket (dislocated) multiple times. The muscles, ligaments, and tendons that hold the shoulder in place become loose and unstable. Injury and repetitive motion strain (like swimming and volleyball) are often causes.

Shoulder joint replacement is used when there is shoulder pain or instability that no longer responds to other treatments. Through surgery, the damaged parts of the shoulder are replaced with artificial components. Fracture, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are a few of the conditions that can affect long-term shoulder pain that may lead to shoulder joint replacement.

Sickle cell anemia is one of a group of disorders called sickle cell disease. It is a blood disorder where the red blood cells that carry oxygen to the body are curved like a sickle instead of round and soft like a disc. Because these curved cells are fragile and break down faster than a normal red blood cell, anemia can occur, meaning the red blood cell count falls below normal.
