Reproductive System Pathology


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, by Salvo and Anderson. Within the course of Dr. Johnson.

While reading Chapter 11 I learned about Reproductive Conditions, Reproductive Pathologies, and Sexually Transmitted Diseases. The reproductive system is divided into two parts, primary and secondary, the primary parts are the gonads or the organs, and the secondary and the body parts involved. Endometriosis is a common pathology; it is when the growth of the lining in the uterus that starts to grow outside the uterus, it can cause a lot of pain and infertility, massage can be a good thing for a client with endometriosis because it can help them relax. Fibrocystic Breast Disease is when one or more cysts are in the breast, they are benign and common but should be watched, massage can be preformed, but laying prone can be painful, so adjust to the comfort of the client.
