Some diseases are very rare, so rare that you are unlikely to ever know somebody that will ever have them. Others are more common, however, and you have likely had them yourself. It is a good thing that the more common diseases are also likely to be on the milder end of the severity scale.

Treatments for these diseases are also usually fairly straight forward, and is not even deemed necessary in some cases. They will often cause little disruption, other than maybe a few days sick off work. One of the most common of all is pharyngitis, which is a condition that you have likely had yourself.
