Get examined: Most of the time new lumps are benign things, but you need to rule out the possibility of testicular cancer. A doctor can many times by just physical exam make a diagnosis. For those times when things are unclear, simple imaging tests like ultrasound can help make a diagnosis. The first step, though, it for you to go see your doctor. Do not wait. It is better to be safe than sorry. ...Read more

Hi I have a scab on my nipple and I have also found a lump under my arm pit on the same side should I be concerned?

Hi I have a scab on my nipple and I have also found a lump under my arm pit on the same side should I be concerned?

That's a lymph node: Whatever injury occurred to the breast is 'known' to your immune system - as evidenced by the 'activation' of the lymph node. That is a garrison of your immunity- and it likely is responding. I would show this to a doctor who can make sure it's nothing more serious. Primarily we need to know 'what' happened - to understand the disease process more fully. A full family history is also necessary. ...Read more

The : The lump is probably breast tissue, enlarged because of hormones increasing as you go through puberty. It is common, and if unilateral it is usually on the left. It resolves spontaneously in most boys without treatment in time. The white "tip" may be due to dried secretions from the glandular tissue. Pubertal gynecomastia is mildly tender but should be soft and moveable. If the lump is hard, it should be checked by your physician. If you are taking herbal supplements to build up your body, you should stop them. ...Read more

I had a pink mole/ growth on my head and I smashed my head on a cabinet and the growth ripped off should I be worried?

 I had a pink mole/  growth on my head and I smashed my head on a cabinet and the growth ripped off should I be worried?

Should be fine: I would not worry too much about a mole being traumatically removed. Perhaps it was serendipitous. Certainly be sure to seek evaluation depending upon how hard you hit your head to rule out other injuries. A topical antibiotic cream can help keep the area clean and moist while it heals. Whether or not the skin growth should be evaluated by a physician regardless of the injury is a different topic. ...Read more

Blocked gland: It sounds most like blocked gland. Basically pimples. There are a lot of glands in the vaginal area. Sweaty rubbing like with sex can cause dead skin and bacteria to get pushed into the pore and block the gland secretion. Showering after sex and applying a heating pad for 10 minutes 2-4 times daily can help. Get an evaluation if that doesn't help within 3 days. Sometimes drainage is needed. ...Read more
