Irregular lining: An irregular endometrial lining is due to inconsistent endometrial growth of the lining. This can occur at your age of 45 due to estrogen without progesterone stimulation as ovulation and resultant progesterone at this age is infrequent. Endometrial scarring can be due to a previous infection of the endometrial lining, placental childbirth issues, and of course a previous too vigorous D & C.

Not necessarily: Family history - mother's and father's, and sibling's - can suggest a predilection for ear infections, but it is only a tendency, not definite. If there is a family history, monitor closely.

There is no swelling or extreme pain. But there is bleeding during strained bowel movement. Could this be internal hemorrhoids?

Yes: Rectal bleeding may be caused by hemorrhoids. Colonoscopy is the standard of care to evaluate rectal bleeding in people over 40.

I received a surgery on my eye muscles a year ago because I had a lazy eye, but the site of cut is still red. Should I be worried?

Probably not: Stitches are used in strabismus surgery. Sometimes, these take quite a while to dissolve with some redness. Occasionally, a small non-infectious lesion called a granuloma can form around the stitch and sometimes needs to be removed.

A 49-year-old female asked:

4 months ago I had total knee replacements(both) and I still have swelling, burning, sharp needle like pains is this normal? What are the signs if one is allergic to the metal in the knee replacement (both)

Can be normal: Some pain and swelling can be normal at this stage. May take close to 1 full year for complete resolution with good therapy. Signs of metal allergy include persistent pain and swelling, skin rashes, including hives , and x-ray findings of component loosening. A sample of the metal, provided by the implant company, can be taped to your arm to confirm. Ask your surgeon.

Neither: If it's a stone not much but medication and passing the stone will help. My condolences.
