Slightly: But not to a great deal. Weight loss and exercise can decrease girth of gynecomastia a little, but not significantly. Liver function okay?

Severe SOB, exercise intolerance, chestpain, high/weak heartrate, barrel chest, early nail clubbing, swollen abdomen.Normal ekg, echo,lungfunctiontest?

Mgt/workup: From you description, you may have COPD, CF or another cardio pulmonary condition. In addition, shunting can occur outside the thorax. I would suggest checking total lung capacity, DLCO, a blood count, spirometry with and without a bronchodilator, a CFsweat test and a HRCT of the chest and possibly abdomen. A clotting disorder should also be considered. ...Read more

35 yr old male with diabetes and hypertension. Overweight . smoker.  Recent fatigue and chest discomfort.  Dr. Says too young for heart. True?

Chest pain: Chest discomfort is a symptom which must be taken seriously. You don't want to wait until something bad happens to find out it was your heart. Multiple risk factors (diabetes, smoking, hypertension) makes it more likely even in younger patients. Evaluation would include an EKG and possibly others like a stress test. For personalized advice, consider a consult on HealthTap. ...Read more

33 male no family history, normal cholestrol. Ekg and Echo stress fine. Chest pain under left nipple. Worried will have heart attack. Angina?

Not likely: So far nothing to suggest that your pain is heart related. Its relation with physical activities, duration, characteristics, radiation, etc will make it more or less likely to be related to your heart. Is there a chance that anxiety is playing a role here? You' ve had comprehensive work- up that essentially ruled it out. ...Read more

44 fem anxty/panic hiatal hernia center chest pain in betw breast reflux burping EKG chest X-ray labs all good.  40mg Prilosec  worried about cause?

The hiatal hernia: This type of hernia causes the reflux. If you're happy with your symptom control on the prilosec, it's ok to continue, but that drug causes oseoporosis, pneumonia, and gastric polyps. As young as you are, i recommend you consider having the hiatal hernia repaired by a surgeon, which ends your reflux for good. Also, if you have "asthma", this may be the reflux and an operation can cure that too. ...Read more

I have belly fat and fatty pectorals, can I lose this belly fat and man boobs by running, swimming, and weight lifting, ?

Yes: A primary care doctor can help make sure nothing unusual is going on. Avoid carbs (sugar and simple starches) because they increase the belly fat. Losing weight means eating fewer calories than one's body needs to burn each day. Also, marijuana use and excess alcohol drinking have been reported to lead to man-boobs. ...Read more
