After years of denying AIDS was a nagging issue in China.

However the 28-year-old Chinese villager knows it will be difficult to find a hospital that may do the procedure – because he has AIDS. In China, hospitals routinely reject people with HIV for medical procedures out of concern with exposure to the virus or injury to their reputations. After years of denying AIDS was a nagging issue in China, the country has significantly improved look after patients, however the lingering stigma sets back again those advances. ‘In my hometown, not a single hospital is willing to operate on people infected with HIV,’ stated Wang, who traveled to Beijing from Runan county in the central province of Henan to try to draw the attention of central authorities to the issue by speaking to the foreign media. ‘This is not discrimination by a unitary person but by a whole country,’ he informed The Associated Press.And doctors without proper training in genetics may find it hard to provide quality information for sufferers. ‘We say details is power, and I believe it is for most patients, but we don’t often know what to do with the info,’ Bernik said. ‘With these other genes, the chance is often low to intermediate. If the risk is leaner, at what stage does the chance become enough to tell a woman that prophylactic surgery is the best route?’ Lichtenfeld agreed, adding that, ‘in practical terms, the question is, are we ready because of this in the everyday practice of medicine?’ Ellisen believes that just women with a family history of breast or ovarian tumor should undergo genetic assessment at the moment. He added that the genetic tests must be combined with woman’s personal and family history to make a nuanced assessment of her cancer risk.
