Episode Summary

Dangerous Growths
Since her late teens, Tanya Angus has had a headache; a crackling sound in her head; an usual growth spurt; pain in her hands, feet, and back; and even an enlargement of her face. Doctors think she's just one of those young women who grow taller after their teens, but it turns out that actually, Tanya has a tumor on her pituitary gland from a rare disorder called acromegaly. Since he was a toddler, Kody Burns has been coughing and having difficulties breathing. He appears to have asthma that went away when he was twelve, but when he begins to cough up blood and strange white tissue at the age of sixteen, it turns out that he actually has a rare disease called recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP).moreless
