Normal blood vessel:
Blood vessels go everywhere. There is one artery next to the temple that is easily felt. There is one on each side. It can appear to circle the head.
Pulsing in the ear is not unusual. As you can see in the image, arteries are everywhere even extending into your ear. If you are concerned, see your doctor. ...Read more

I have a nodule in my neck, right under the hair line. Feels like a ball when touching it. What could it be? Hurts a little but not much
7mm x 7mm node on chin above jaw line. Feels round, mobile and rubbery. Around for a month or more. Another few prominent nodes on neck and groin.
Have it taken out.: These sound like they could be lymph nodes, and if that's the case then they've been there too long. Once a lymph node is around for four weeks, and there's no obvious reason for it to be there, it has to be removed and sent to the lab for definitive analysis and diagnosis. You need to visit with your local doctor and have this arranged. ...Read more
Is it normal to feel lymph nodes on your bikini line? Feel on both sides, but not visually swollen or sore. I am 5'4, 110 lb female
If you had any lesions on the legs/feet, that could have resulted in fibrosed nodes that are palpable though not enlarged. In places where kids roam barefooted, it is a common finding.
You may watch and wait. If the nodes get larger, become painful, nodes in other areas of the body become palpable, you get fever or lose weight, see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I feel something with my tongue on the right side of back of mouth on my gum it feels like a line been there for a week it usually disappears in past?
Could be Infection: Many oral conditions affecting the soft tissues come and go. Some are harmless, but others can be quite serious. Many of the most common soft tissue changes are completely painless, even though they can be serious, such as cysts, tumors, abscesses, and infections. Any lesion which does not completely heal within two weeks should be regarded as potential dangerous. Get it checked by a dentist now! ...Read more

Feel a throbbing line (not to the touch) under bottom of heel. Hurts under heel in general and can put little weight on it. Is this plantar fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis: Plantar fasciitis typically causes a stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot near the heel. The pain is usually worst with the first few steps after awakening, although it can also be triggered by long periods of standing or getting up from a seated position. The best thing to do is to see either a podiatrist or an orthopedic surgeon and get this looked at before it gets worse. ...Read more
I recently injured my jaw (see recent cases). The pain is mostly gone but I feel a large bump where the impact was. It doesn't hurt a lot when touched, and feels like a 'line' that can be moved a bit and felt slightly from inside of mouth.
Your question is?: I need to know how "recent" was the injury. It would not be unusual to have a resolving hematoma at the site of the impact, now forming a "healing ridge". The important test for you to check is, tap your teeth together and see if your bite feels normal, grind your teeth back and forth and side to side as at a dentist. If all's good then I wouldn't stress about it. Healing takes time. ...Read more
Blepharitis: Most likely this is an inflammation of the lashes (similar to dandruff of the scalp) in which the margins of the lid are red, there are yellowish deposits on the lashes and there is some tenderness and even redness of the eye itself. Your ophthalmologist can help conquer this and also distinguish it from another common lid problem, the demodex parasite - a mite which lives in the lash bases. ...Read more

Can I be pregnant after 15 days of period? I am feeling bloated, tired & feels like uterine line thicking and cramping too. My cycle is usually 30 to 31 days.
Not likely if...: You just ended your cycle, I would be worried if you missed your period entirely, not if only lasted 15 days. I would look at other factors that could affect the cycle, including stress, nutrition, psychological wellbeing, seasonal temperature, illnesses, and exercise. If you continue with excessive bleeding, you should visit a GYN or family physician to try regulation with oral contraceptives ...Read more

On the right side of my neck...Under jaw line I feel something there. I don't feel it on left side, and I am a smoker? Any ideas what it could b?
Maybe a lymph node: It could be a lymph node, which is part of the immune system that swells in response to infection. It may also be your submandibular gland which makes saliva. If you are a smoker, you are also at higher risk for cancers, which can also show up as persistent swollen lymph nodes. ...Read more

Lightly bumped front tooth w/weddingband. Used flashlight from under tooth. See horizontal line middle of tooth! Can't feel w/ nail. Craze line? 63yo
Probably: Lightly bumping your tooth with wedding ring unlikely to cause much damage. Seen it chip an edge of tooth.

We use the light to examine the teeth in a similar fashion. Not likely a problem. ...Read more

When do I see full results after soft pedicle gum graft? Been 2 weeks and still see a whitish/yellowish part at the gum line, also feels indented?
Put You On A Pedicle: It could take several weeks to heal sufficiently and then remodel to look smoother and more normal. The white is a pretty normal reaction in the mouth. But, really, you should check with your dentist, especially if it hurts a lot, oozes blood or some other gunk, the gum line starts to separate or you develop unholy bad breath. Don't you have a follow-up visit arranged? ...Read more

Seen my ortho he didn't say anything much about this, but im having server knee pain along the joint line and feel like something catches, could b what?
Internal Derangement: Sounds like a mechanical problem. If there was an injury, a torn meniscus is likely. Tendons, if swollen can also catch and we used to entrtain a plica syndrome which some now debunk. Need to know if you can feel the "catch" and it feels on the outside or if you compress the joint line it disappears - that sugggest the problem is outside the joint (tendon or ligament). May need an MRI to clarify. ...Read more
