I have a piercing pain in the upper chest and back, opposite sides. Is my rib broken?

Probable spasm: Random sharp chest is probably not a broken rib unless major trauma (it takes a large g-force to break ribs). Sharp chest pain is usually a G.I. (stomach or gallbaldder) or esophagus pain (spasm). The best thing to do is sit up (not lay down), take an antacid (tums). Sharp chest pain with breathing can be 'pleurisy'. You may want to get seen to get an exact diagnosis. Hope you are better soon! ...Read more

Did a second earlobe piercing 3 months ago, not yet completely healed but I see a small amount of flesh poking from the back could this be keloid.

Hypertrophic Scar: After the skin is injured, the healing process usually leaves a flat scar. Sometimes the scar is hypertrophic, or thickened, but confined to the margin of the wound. Keloids, by conhypertric scartrast, may start sometime after the injury and extend beyond the wound site. ...Read more

I had gotten my nose piercing done few years back, and now a swelling is being formed in that area... What could it be? Please help!

I had gotten my nose piercing done few years back, and now a swelling is being formed in that area... What could it be? Please help!

Infection?: It is possible that the nose ring has caused an infection, or rather the opening of the skin to respiratory bacteria has caused it. It could possibly be chronic irritation from movement of the ring which is creating a fibroma (a chronic irritation causing excess tissue to be formed). I know it is a popular cosmetic look for youth, but really it is unwise for a number of reasons. ...Read more

Hi. Head was turned looking at phone. Turned to look up & felt sharp piercing pain in left back side of neck in the middle. No other issue. Ideas?

Muscle strain: Sounds like you strained a muscle (sternocleidomastoid, trapezius) in your neck. Heat, an NSAID, gentle massage and time should take care of it.... avoid aggravating the muscle while it heals. As always, if symptoms do not improve fairly quickly (w/in a week or so) see your family physician. Best of Luck! ...Read more

8months old 2nd lobe piercings healed partially. But there are bumps around them and sometimes get bigger then pop n bleed with no puss n comes back.

8months old 2nd lobe piercings healed partially. But there are bumps around them and sometimes get bigger then pop n bleed with no puss n comes back.

Doctor can check: If the piercing has a friable spot (a spot that is not healing well, and is easy to start bleeding when irritated), that spot could bleed if one tries to put in or take out an earring. Bumps can also form if there is infection in the skin, or an allergic reaction to the earring's material. A primary care doctor or dermatologist can take a look. It's good to show the doctor an unbroken, new bump. ...Read more
