    Respected Admin,
    In the article for SSB Medical Procedure, you mentioned quite a number of disorders from which a candidate must be free. Not being a student of medicine or anything even close to that, I’m having doubts about those particular disorders. Could you please give short descriptions of those disorders?
    P.S. – Its those disorders mentioned with Wax in Ears, DNS, etc.
