Hormones: during puberty there are many hormonal changes as you know. Sometimes there may be a larger amount of estrogen for several reasons which usually self correct over time. This is usually a normal occurrence. In your case the enlargement persisted and the right answer is to remove them if they hurt.

I have bad health anxiety but had to have a testical torsion surgery if i had an illness would the hospital know about it from my blood tests for op?

I have bad health anxiety but had to have a testical torsion surgery if i had an illness would the hospital know about it from my blood tests for op?

I'm betting so: You already showed courage in writing healthtap, and i hope the torsion surgery was a success. If your ordinary physical and routine labs were okay, i'd urge you stop worrying -- but i also know how some people worry about being sick even without there being any basis. You have insight which is great. A course of cognitive-behavior therapy, rather than my reassurance, would be a great idea now. ...Read more

Had surgery 8days ago to remove ovarian cyst they found blood around ovarie. had 2 blood tests 7days apart both showing raised Liver enzymes why?

Had surgery 8days ago to remove ovarian cyst  they found blood around ovarie. had 2 blood tests 7days apart both showing raised Liver enzymes why?

Unknown: Many causes of elevated liver enzymes. Could be related to the anesthetic agents used in surgery. Alcohol can do it as well as other drugs. Many people today have fatty liver due to a high carbohydrate diet. It does need to be evaluated, but i would reassure you that it doesn't relate to the surgery itself or the ovary in any direct way. good luck ...Read more

Why wouldnt a thoracic surgeon do surgery on a lung nodule 1.4 2.7 suv.Pet, CT , x rays , blood tests.He said not at the moment.Advice please lwaiting is h-?

Consider risks.: A solitary pulmonary nodule may be benign or malignant. Older age (>50), smoking history, and size >8mm increase the risk of cancer. A low suv on pet/ct, certain types of ct findings can suggest lower risk. If not high risk, a repeat scan in 3 months for a larger nodule with low suv is reasonable. If the nodule grows it must be biopsied. If no change, follow with serial scans. ...Read more
