My friend committed suicide by hanging himself and his head swell & turned purple. Why/how did this happen?

Suicide: I'm so sorry for your loss, at such a young age -- and perhaps your friend was very young also. I don't know what was happening inside him that he committed suicide, but many people who do that are very depressed. They also lose hope. Some may be intoxicated with substances, obliterating healthy judgment. Swelling and discoloration occur when circulation is cut off, as in hanging. ...Read more

Walked into a hanging tree branch I didn't see. It bumped me around the back and top of my head. Can this cause injury? Had concussion before.

Walked into a hanging tree branch I didn't see. It bumped me around the back and top of my head. Can this cause injury? Had concussion before.

Of course, that...: Of course, but that would depend on the force of the impact. A little impact that scrapes off a few skin cells is an injury, but nobody worries about that. Getting knocked to the ground would be an injury, and we might worry about that one. Common sense and judgement will help one decide when to go see his doctor. Questions like "Can this cause injury? " almost always have YES for an answer. ...Read more

Right beside my tongue by my sublingual vein, there's a red skin like flap hanging, what could it be? Should I worry?

Right beside my tongue by my sublingual vein, there's a red skin like flap hanging, what could it be? Should I worry?

I doubt it: The key question is whether or not this is new, a change? There is a piece of linear tissue that connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth. The lingual frenum. Perhaps this is what you are seeing. However, if what you are seeing is new, something different, I would go see your dentist/oral surgeon/ENT medical specialist for their opinion. But I wouldn't worry. Very likely benign. Good wishes:) ...Read more
