Doctor Touched My Liver It Was Sore
My boyfriend has white exudate on his throat and was told that it wasnt strep throat what else could it be?
Might be mono.: Mononcleosis can produce an exudative pharyngitis that can look for all the world like a strep throat. There's a blood test for mono. I have seen people who have had both mono and strep at the same time. Clearly, the strep needs to be treated with antibiotics - or it can produce heart valve or kidney damage later on. Mono runs its course, though sometimes medications are used to control symptoms. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Just came from the doctor cause I was feeling a bump on my cervix but he said he don't see no bump around my cervix but I feel it should i be worried?
Probably not: Your doctor can't feel what you feel, he can only look and tell you what he sees. If your exam was reassuring, I would wait and see if it goes away on its own. If it doesn't go away in 6 weeks or so, you can go back to your doc and say, "Hey, that bump is still there. Can you take a closer look?" Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
