Would you recommend Chinese medicine to effort treat Asthma for a 11 year old boy?

Not particularly: Since I am not schooled in their methods I can not recommend their use. However, as long as you try it in addition to normally accepted treatments I find no reason to discard it altogether. Chronic conditions often push us to look for new ideas. Understanding that asthma is based in a genetic or acquired lifelong tendency is hard to accept. ...Read more

People with this condition are usually not aware when this is happening ...Read more

Very rare: It is possible, but very rare, to develop testicular cancer younger than 15. Most patients are 20-40. If there's a lump in the testicle, the next step would be for a physician to examine the testicle and perhaps an ultrasound to better characterize what's going on. If there's suspicion, surgery would follow to remove the testicle. ...Read more
