Previous history

Previous history: Prior history of a disease as a risk (usually for recurrence).
Introduction: This section shows various cases where a "previous history" of some condition is a risk factor in getting a new condition. This page also shows a lot of recurrence information, since many times a "previous history of disease" indicates a raised risk of recurrences. However, there are other cases where one disease raises the risk of another; see also diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and diseases.
