Heard dolly parton did this. What happens if you get rib removal?

Not sure she did: I'm not sure if she did, but if you remove a rib, you are likely to have radiating pains around your torso from the nerve that runs right on the undersurface of the rib.

Rib removal is often done for lung cancer surgery or some spine surgery, but is not typically done for other causes now. ...Read more

My back area is very dark and front portion of my body is fair what should I do to make it fair.?

My back area is very dark and front portion of my body is fair what should I do to make it fair.?

Skin Fairness: Unfortunately any product you choose will carry some risks, will not work well and you will be unsatisfied. Wanting fairer skin is the disease here. It is not the dark skin. Having "darker' skin is not a disease or a medical condition. The goal in life is to be kind, to be of service to your fellow man and your family and to learn to love yourself as much as you love those around you. ...Read more

Iim close to thirty. My half body parts are adult size and some half are like child size. I look abnormal. My size is hard to find anywhere.

Iim close to thirty. My half body parts are adult size and some half are like child size. I look abnormal. My size is hard to find anywhere.

See your doctor...: Have you been to a doctor since puberty? It would be abnormal to have half of your body remain "child sized" & the other half grow normally. It is hard to imagine that if your appearance is as dramatically imbalanced as your description that it wasn't noted by a physician in previous exams. See your doctor to evaluate your concerns and determine if any medical workup for cause needs to be done. ...Read more

I have slurred and slow speech for the first part of the day and then I "warm up" and am fine. How can I help this? I have no conditions.

Something: Sounds as you just have "no conditions" that have been identified as yet. It is not normal for someone to do as you describe, particularly if in 20s. You should see your dr or a neurologist for evaluation & possibly blood & imaging studies to see what is causing the symptoms you describe. ...Read more

It is VERY easily treated. Other causes of thin bones like lack of vitamin D, calcium, bone infection, bone tumor, abnormality of the hormones controlling mineral level are also possible and treatable. ...Read more

What are signs and is there any thing a person can take that's natural to find out if they have intestinal paricites?

Real science: I would only accept a diagnosis of intestinal parasites if it were made by a competent lab on a stool specimen. There are many websites that suggest that huge numbers of people in the developed world are sick primarily because of parasites that evidence-based medicine isn't finding. I don't believe this and would urge you to be skeptical as well. ...Read more

Brown stains = blood: Brown stains in the genital area are usually related to old blood. Alternatively a lighter shade of brown (tan) may be dried urine. Either way, it would be a good idea to be examined by a gynecologist to see if there is something on exam that explains it. ...Read more
