Is it possible to get punched on the head and get a bruise and die like days or weeks later?

A bit more than that: A serious blow to the temple that results in a skull fracture can lacerate the middle meningeal artery and cause an epidural hematoma. This is a neurosurgical emergency that must be evaluated and treated promptly or a person can slip into a coma and die. A slower subdural hematoma can cause issues as well.

I had a lump removed in my neck and they cut the nerve. Can that cause dizziness

I had a lump removed in my neck and they cut the nerve. Can that cause dizziness

No: Which nerve? The important nerves at risk during a neck dissection or removal of a mass would be the branch of the facial nerve to the lower lip (marginal mandibular nerve), the accessory spinal nerve, which would make your shoulder weak. I suppose it would be possible they could have cut the phrenic nerve, which would cause some shortness of breath. None of these would cause dizziness. ...Read more

I have a pince nerve in my neck could someone send me a MRI and see how a pince nerve look in ur neck please and do a pince nerve make u have tension?

MRI: The nerves come off of your spinal cord and exit the spine through little spaces between the vertebrae called neural foramina. These spaces can become narrowed, often due to bone spurs or disc problems. This can cause pain, numbness, tingling in different places depending on which nerve is affected. This MRI image shows narrowing at arrow 1 and more normal other side, arrow 2. ...Read more

Swollen cheek  because of a tooth ache what can i do to get the swollen down?

See a dentist ASAP: A tooth infection won't go away without treatment and the infection may spread to your lymph nodes, cheeks, sinus and to other areas of your head and neck. OTC pain medications such as NSAIDs, Tylenol (acetaminophen) or prescribe antibiotics can all reduce the symptoms, but none of these treats the cause. Visit a dentist ASAP for definitive diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
