Hard 2 say: But there are many other non-blood causes of dark stools (meds, diet, etc). Fortunately it is easy to tell by bringing a small sample to your md to test for blood. If blood is found a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy could be performed to rule out a source of bleeding. If no blood, may be dietary. See a doctor. ...Read more

He has a less than a bb size very hard pebble like thing located in his testicle area. What is it? What could it be from? Should we be worried?

He has a less than a bb size very hard pebble like thing located in his testicle area. What is it? What could it be from? Should we be worried?

No concern: Most small lumps in the testicle area are small epididymal cysts which are quite common and insignificant. Another less common cause is a scrotolith/scrotal pearl which is a mobile calcification within the inner scrotal sac. Any lump in the scrotal area that is not arising from the testicle itself is invariably benign and just warrants observation for any change in size or associated pain. ...Read more

There are hard pebbles in my 2 month old poop?

Infant constipation: Constipation in infants is not defined by how often they go, but rather the consistency of the stools. You describe hard stools that are difficult for the baby to pass - that is constipation. I would start with adding extra fluids in the form of water or juice to help soften stools. If don't feel good about the addictive/sugary juice, then can use MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) daily-ask pediatrician about dose. ...Read more

Diet/hydration: The large intestine extracts water from the poo when a baby is not taking in enough fluids, so pebble stools can reflect poor fluid intake. Applesauce, bananas and some cereals tend to slow stooling and could also be involved. Apple juice, prune juice, peaches and pears tent to loosen stools. ...Read more

Additionally, they do not present with infections the same way as older kids. For this reason, any concerns should prompt assessment by the pediatrician. Having stated that, it is likely simple constipation for which you may use glycerin suppositories, but please see his doc soon! ...Read more

Bowel change: Since this is a change in your usual bowel pattern, it shouldn't be ignored and a colonoscopy may be in order. Your stools suggest recent constipation and if increasing fluid intake and fiber or Metamucil in your daily diet doesn't get you back to normal regularity, it's important to be evaluated by a gastroenterologist. If you haven't had a screening colonoscopy, this is a good time to get one. ...Read more

What are the hard, pebble like lumps on the inside of my mouth, below my lower lip? No other dental issues no pain no bleeding

Could be tori: Would need a bit more info for a more definitive answer: are they within the lower lip or attached below the lower front teeth? If they're attached below the teeth, they are likely tori which are harmless rock-hard bony growths. They can sometimes be related to heavy, chronic teeth clenching. If they are within the lower lip, they could be lymph nodes. If ur concerned, a quick visit to the dentist. ...Read more
