I have a white-reddish bump on my penis head a few centimeters from my urethra. If I squeeze it every few days white puss comes out. What is going on?

It will be easier for the doctor to diagnose it if the patient does not squeeze the stuff out of it, but let the stuff build up for 3 days and allow the doctor a chance to squeeze it out. ...Read more

I am 37 weeks/4 days pregnant & had my bpp done today. I was told my baby has dropped. How far should the fetus' head drop into the pelvis before labor?

All the way: When you start labor, the baby's head will eventually drop fully down into the pelvic bowl, which is the entrance to the birth canal. This will be happening over the next several weeks.
