Tumor on top of right corroded artery. Moveable and soft. Been there 2years no growth. 1.5 cm. Will this cause any probs?

Likely normal: I think you have multiple questions on this same finding. Lymph nodes are normally present all over our body and often coincide with vascular structures -- such as the carotid artery. Lymph nodes are usually <= 1cm in size but may be enlarged from prior infections (eg cold, "flu", sinusitis, acne, etc). A stable 1.5 cm lymph node in the neck is likely benign. Movable and soft also suggests benign. ...Read more

Can toothpaste damage or corrode teeth?

Can toothpaste damage or corrode teeth?

Very abrasive ones: Some toothpastes that are marketed and promoted as "whitening" toothpastes can be very abrasive and can wear away teeth if used on a regular basis. You can google it and get a list of toothpastes with their abrasive index to see which ones are the most harmful. There is no problem with any ada accepted non-whitening toothpaste. Excessive brushing with "hard" TB can also wear tooth structure. ...Read more

Parents' copper pipes corroded and I drank there water for 3 days. 29 weeks pregnant. Harmful to baby?

Question about paragard/copper IUD basically I am thinking about using a peroxide douche to help eliminate a bacterial vaginal infection. Yes I know I am not supposed to douche...My question is, can peroxide corrode my copper iud? Cannot find the answer

Question about paragard/copper IUD basically I am thinking about using a peroxide douche to help eliminate a bacterial vaginal infection. Yes I know I am not supposed to douche...My question is, can peroxide corrode my copper iud? Cannot find the answer

I: I am fairly confident that peroxide will not corrode your copper iud, although I can not say this with 100% certainty. However I have to highly recommend you not use a peroxide douche. This can affect the natural vaginal flora and cause even more infections to occur. How do you know you have a bacterial vaginal infection? Did you go to your doctor for testing and diagnosis. If not I hightly recommend that you do. Often times women think that are dealing wwith one type of infection and it ends up being something else. Instead of blindly treating yourself, please allow a doctor to guide you in the appropriate treatment.
Good luck. ...Read more

Doctor said the bottom of my spine is coroding. Wat does this mean for me long term?

Degeneration: "corroding" certainly has a negative connotation-in reality, spinal degeneration is a completely normal age-related process. All of us will get older & gradually develop worn out discs, bone spurs, disc protrusion, etc - just part of the aging process. Of course, if you get symptoms from this aging process, there are treatment options. Talk to your md to confirm that your diagnosis is degeneration. ...Read more

I want to get an ultrasound on my coroided arteries as a preventative measure. My doc said it isn't needed. Would he do it if I pay out of pocket?

I want to get an ultrasound on my coroided arteries as a preventative measure. My doc said it isn't needed. Would he do it if I pay out of pocket?

Carotid IMT?: I wonder if you are referring to the carotid imt scan, an ultrasound procedure to look at the thickness of the carotid walls, and thereby evaluate the presence of cholesterol plaque build-up. It is a non-invasive screen, meaning it's safe. At your young age, I wouldn't imagine it would be covered by insurance. It wouldn't hurt you - but there might be better uses for your health care dollar. ...Read more
