What causes temporal pain on one side head. It doesn't hurt bad unless I touch it. Should I be concerned? I am 60. No bumps or redness on area.

PainInTheTemple, Oy!: At your age it could be an inflamed temporal artery, which is a marker for inflammation to deeper arteries, some of which could affect your eye and eyesight. So best to go see your doctor right away. A blood test could give a fairly good answer. If it's not that (called "temporal arteritis) then your doctor could try and figure out something else with a sigh of relief that it wasn't arteritis. ...Read more

I have one bump on the side of my penis not the head part its small its not white n doesn't hurt it tingle when I squeeze it I had intercourse on me?

Hard to say, see MD: Pimples can occur on the penis; if that's what this looks like, probably that's all it is. However, several other possibilities include genital wart, sebaceous cyst, molluscum contagiosum, and more. But most of these don't tingle. Best to not take chances: see a doctor for professional evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more

Lymph node: The most likely answer is a swollen lymph node. Acne at the hair line or an upper respiratory infection can cause the lymph nodes at the base of the skull and neck to capture infection and swell. The surrounding neck muscles that insert into the skull spasm due to the swollen lymph node and cause tension headaches. If the symptoms persist then see your medical doctor. ...Read more
