News story on Mastocytosis.

I got this from a blog owned by someone who commented on my original post about Masto. I am impessed they got media coverage, and this reminds me how thankful I should be that Rohan's case is fairly mild.

Diagnosing Mastocytosis : your doctor can determine if you have cutaneous (skin) Mastocytosis after inspecting the skin, the may see the appearance of too many mast cells and do a biopsy to confirm any suspicions. Systemic Mastocystosis can be determined a few ways, through bone scanning, bone marrow testing, blood-work and also through urine. The high amount of the fore mentioned chemicals in the blood or urine is a way doctors can determine if you have the systemic type of this disease.
