No: Cortaid (hydrocortisone) is a form of steroid and lotrimin is an antifungal. These are usually in cream form for skin problems but are totally different in effect.

My brother has blocked carotid arteries and leg veins. Can physicians operate on both at the same time?

Not a good idea: Carotid occlusive disease and it's corresponding operation are very serious issues that should not be combined with surgery for varicose veins. Both have a great deal of importance but the more important and serious of the two should be addressed first-carotid endarterectomy. The varicose vein surgery can be done anytime thereafter.

Is it odd to have three colon polyps removed during the same procedure, or is multiple-polyp removal common?

Dr. Eric Kaplan
Colon and Rectal Surgery 42 years experience
No: It is not odd to have several polyps removed at the time of a colonoscopy. The intent is to remove all polyps found unless you happen to have familial polyposis in which case there may be thousands of polyps and obviously they can't all be removed.

If my child has one undescended testicle, will he be able to produce the same amount of testosterone as a regular person?

Dr. Ronda Dennis-Smithart
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: Men with one testicle have normal sperm production and fertility. I am concerned about the undescended testicle, however. Undescended testicles should be surgically corrected, early in life to preserve the testicle's function; more importantly, to decrease the risk of testicular cancer. If the testes hasn't descended after 1 year of age, see a peds urologist or surgeon.
