Mouth Sores (Definition)

A canker sore is a painful, open sore in the mouth. Canker sores are white or yellow and surrounded by a bright red area. They are benign (not cancer). Canker sores can run in families. They may also be linked to problems with the body's immune (defense) system. The sores may occur after a mouth injury due to dental work, aggressive tooth cleaning, or biting the tongue or cheek. Canker sores can be triggered by emotional stress, dietary deficiencies (especially iron, folic acid, or vitamin B-12), menstrual periods, hormonal changes, food allergies, and similar situations. They occur most commonly with viral infections. In some cases, the cause can not be identified. Treatment is usually not necessary. In most cases, the canker sores ...Read more

Feeling a little nauseated, and my lower right abdomen feels a little stiff and tender. No other sx. Male 22. How likely is colon cancer?

Feeling a little nauseated, and my lower right abdomen feels a little stiff and tender. No other sx. Male 22. How likely is colon cancer?

Very unlikely.: The chance of this being colon cancer is almost nonexistent. However, in a young man with new onset right lower quadrant pain, the possibility of appendicitis must be considered. If your pain worsens or persists, or if any new symptoms develop, you should see your doctor or go to the emergency room immediately. Good luck. ...Read more

My appetite has been lacking lately im 22 and don't smoke and.No family history of colon cancer what are odds I have cc? Is.It all in my head im scared

Very unlikely...: At 22 you have a very low likelihood of having colon cancer. Other causes for lack of appetite such as depression, anorexia, flu/cold, among many others would be thought of first. That being said, a sudden and unexplained lack of appetite should be worked-up. Please see your health care provider. ...Read more
