After massive weight loss I have extra skin on the side of my chest. In the pec area. What are my surgical options?

Direct removal: After someone loses a massive amount of weight, the skin retracts to a limited degree. Often, you are left with hanging, excess skin. People had tried to tighten skin using lasers and ultrasound, but those technologies have not proven to be reliable and provide very limited benefit. Removal of excess lateral chest skin can often be done in conjunction with an arm lift or breast reduction. ...Read more

Feels like a egg on the side of my head I had it since I was younger but it grew a little bigger is it just the shape of my head or a tumor?

Impossible to tell: From a distance. Given what you say, far more likely just the shape of your head. Recommend research anatomy on line (including Google images), seek help worthy of your trust & after a careful exam & characterization of the "egg", consider imaging with Ultrasound, CAT scan or MRI to better characterize - IF judged worth both the cost & risks by BOTH you & the advisers you choose to work with. ...Read more

One side of clitoris has squishy extra skin lump, about the same size as clitoris. No pain, no difference in color no other symptoms. Worrisome?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining the "lump". However, it may be residual tissue from the development of clitoris. You may watch and wait. If the "lump" more than doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, develops a discharge, or other lumps appear, see a doctor.

I get like these shocks in my left side of my head /brain is that bad I had a tumor when I was young it went away?

It depends,,,: This likely depends on the type of tumor you had, among other things. If it was benign, like a meningioma, it probably doesn't need anything. If it was another kind, like an ependymoma, it can be benign but might recur and need more treatment. It's also possible this is unrelated to your tumor. It's likely best to see your doctor to discuss this and your tumor history and get an exam. ...Read more

Virgin, got 2finger like (extra skin?)Each on one side of my labia majora. No itching/burning.1dt noticed a year ago. Possible I always had them.

Where are they?: If this finger-like extra skin is on the outside of your labia majora, it may be part of the labia, or that fold that occurs between your vagina and inner thigh. If the skin is on the inside of your labia majora, they may be your labia minora. Going further towards the hole or entrance of your vagina, you may have a hymen that can appear as two flaps of skin.

What are the chances that this is breast cancer? I am young but have a very full family history of cancer on both sides of my family, skin cancer breast cancer lung cancer ovarian cancer the list continues, recently I noticed a lump on my left breast and

Hello,: Hello, it is difficult to answer this question specifically for you without being able to see the images. In general, a radiologist, a physician that looks at medical images, will assess the shape, size, margins and density of a mass to determine the chance that it might be cancer. The radiologist may use mammograms and ultrasound images to gather this information. Radiologists will recommend a biopsy for any abnormality that has a chance of being cancer that is 2% or more. "pointy edges" will raise the chance to greater than 2%. Therefore, I would follow the recommendation for biopsy.

The chance that this particular finding is cancer also depends on your age, personal history and family history. From your story I think that the most important factor is the family history. Having breast and ovarian cancer in your family will raise your personal risk. The risk is highest if it was a first-degree relative (sister or mother) that had breast or ovarian cancer. If it was grandmother or distant cousin, the risk for you is not as high. If it was mother or sister or both, this might be a sign that your family has a gene that raises the risk of some kinds of cancer. If so, I would recommend that you all talk to a medical provider that performs genetic counseling. This can help you decide if you want to make a special effort to reduce your risk or start special screening tests to help detect cancer early if it happens.

I see that you posted this question 28 days ago. I see that the biopsy likely has already happened and that you have the result. I hope that it was benign. If not, then I hope that you know that we have great treatments for breast cancer and most women are survivors. I will be thinking about you and hoping for the best. ...Read more
