If I have an unusual growth on the side of my head, is it likely cancerous?

If I have an unusual growth on the side of my head, is it likely cancerous?

Possibly: Few lesions growing on the side of the head are benign. Most are cutaneous in origin and represent basal cell Ca, squamous Ca and melanoma. Some unusual lesion like adenoid cystic Ca also seen as well as various blood vessel lesions. In rarer instances metastatic lesions can spread to the scalp. Biopsy is indicated and resection afterward depending on the pathology. May then need RT. ...Read more

What to do if I have an abnormal growth on my forehead. I banged my head the other day - do you think there's a connection?

Growth on nose +growing, can be uncomfortable at times. Growth is spreading on the nose?

Growth on nose +growing, can be uncomfortable at times. Growth is spreading on the nose?

Need to see Dr: Either otolaryngologist or dermatologist. This may be a basal cell skin cancer which if untreated, will continue to grow. This is a cancer that can be eliminated by simple excision & thus considered almost benign. It never metastacises. Major cause is exposure to sun. Good luck. ...Read more

What is it when you wake up one morning too see there is a growth under your nose and it looks like a furry tree bark?

What is it when you wake up one morning too see there is a growth under your nose and it looks like a furry tree bark?

It is...: When something like that happens, it is time to take a shower and hope that "furry tree bark" washes off. If said "furry tree bark" is still there upon exiting the shower, it is time to pick up that phone and call the expert... no, not the local horticulturist, but rather one's primary care doctor who likely can put an end to this mystery. If one's doctor is stumped, he can refer to Dermatology. ...Read more

I have growth of hair under my nose how can I remove it permanently help me, please every one make fun of thus?

I have growth of hair under my nose how can I remove it permanently help me, please every one make fun of thus?

Nose hair: You have really three choices. The first two are likely the best. Picking, trimming, and laser. Picking can be done with a tweezers and removes the whole hair but hurts. Trimming can be done with scizzors or a nasal trimmer you can but at the store. It is a circular device put into the nose that trims the hair. I do not think the laser has been perfected enough to use inside the nose. ...Read more

My cousin sister, 16 yrs old recently undergone an operation for extra flesh growth in her nose. After two weeks she vomited a lot of blood. Why is it?

Not uncommon: Initially after surgery, however 2 weeks after seems a bit strange. There is normally some blood swallowed down the back of the throat in the early recovery period, but this should not persist. See a physician. The source may or may not be related to the nasal surgery. ...Read more

Genetic: Unfortunately, all men don't grow facial hair in the same patterns. Some can't grow a beard well into their 30s! if you have alterations in the color of your skin in the areas where you don't grow as much hair, there is a chance there is a condition which a dermatologist can diagnose. Otherwise, the best treatment is a tincture of time. ...Read more

Can hookah smoking at puberty affect nose shape and bone growth in general? I'm not happy with my face bones and think I stunted the growth. Help please

Can hookah smoking at puberty affect nose shape and bone growth in general? I'm not happy with my face bones and think I stunted the growth. Help please

Other issues: Hookah smoking will not change nose shape or bone growth in general. However snorting a substance can cause a deviation or holes in the nasal septum (middle part of nose). More important is what you are smoking. Tobacco has serious risks- increased wrinkling, more likely to get colds, lung infections and long term cancer. Other substances smoked can irritate your nose, throat and lungs. ...Read more

Hello my father has a growth on tip of the nose from fast 3 years which was painless recently it started painingto what doctor we should consult?

Otolaryngologist: I am biased being this specialty, but this is definitely something we can evaluate and treat. Another option is to see a dermatologist. It likely needs a biopsy (tissue sample) and then further treatment can be planned. ...Read more

I have constant nose allergy (running and stuffed nose) throughout the years ever since I was little due to environment. Does that hinder growth (height)?

I have constant nose allergy (running and stuffed nose) throughout the years ever since I was little due to environment. Does that hinder growth (height)?

Not that we know of: Uncontrolled rhinitis (nose allergy) doesn't affect growth as much as uncontrolled asthma, ultimate height is a complex function of the body, with several systems involved, unlikely that isolated nose allergy would affect it. ...Read more

What is used on a large skin cancer removal wound (nose) that is healing naturally to help with new skin growth and/or for there to be less scarring?

What is used on a large skin cancer removal wound (nose) that is healing naturally to help with new skin growth and/or for there to be less scarring?

Ask the DR!!!!!: Was it a MOHS procedure? Graft? Sutures? Dressing? Forget about magic pills or vitamins to reduce scars: they are bogus claims. Usually WATER is best for routine cleaning. Keep it lubricated with vaseline or Aquaphor. Bacitracin and neosporin are useless. Worse, they are common sensitizers which may cause allergic reactions and interfere with wound healing. Your surgeon MUST have carefully instruc ...Read more

Septal deviation bridge of nose an growth in left sinus orbital, low prolactin an cortisol, can it be related to the eyelids apraxia-blepharospasms,

Complex case: Your case is complex and it's very difficult to give you helpful information in the face of diverse data. It may be that gathering all your imaging studies and blood tests, along with the summary notes from your doctors and asking for a second opinion from an endocrinologist would help. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a small growth or bump on the outside corner of my eye - not next to my nose. My doctor suggested me seeing an eye doctor but did not say what?

I have a small growth or bump on the outside corner of my eye - not next to my nose. My doctor suggested me seeing an eye doctor but did not say what?

Need to see to ID: Your doctor has sent you to an eye doctor to evaluate the abnormality you have close to your eye. It may need removal to identify what it is and as the abnormality is where it is in proximity to your eye, an eye MD with plastic surgery ability for this area would be the best to see. To answer what needs visual and probably tactile evaluation of the mass/lump ...Read more

If you have acromegaly is it poss to just grow taller but have NO other growth changes--enlarged jaw, nose, hands, feet (shoe size now smaller), etc.?

Finished growing?: A person can grow taller if she has not finished growing. A person cannot grow taller if she has already finished growing. Height growth finishes during the late teen years, or occasionally to age 21 or 22. There are internet stories of people growing taller at older ages, but those are science fiction stories... may be fun reading, but that's it. ...Read more

Sputum test reports heavy growth of Candida albicans and pseudomonas aeruginosa. No symptoms excpt stuffy nose and throat clearing for 2 yrs. Pls help?

More info needed: Pseudomonas and Candida often appear when normal bacteria are suppressed by antibiotics. Have you been taking antibiotics, maybe for your stuffy nose and cough? Or have you been hospitalized recently? If you are otherwise healthy, chest xray normal (no pneumonia), and you don't have severe bronchitis, probably these results can be ignored. Discuss with your doctor or infectious disease specialist. ...Read more

How do internal factors affect external symptoms? Could imbalanced colon show as red nose? Bloating, irregular movements only colon symptoms-no pain

= A Dx of exclusion: When a GI problem is labelled "functional" it means inflammation, infection, & ischemic pathology, as well as motility disorders have been ruled out. Ruled in are conditions that alter how the gut "senses" pain, distension, & the movement of food or residue. Sounds like you may be describing Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), but you'd be my first to manifest IBS with a red nose--look 4 other causes. ...Read more
