Turned 18 in november, wondering if it is likely if i will grow anymore, I have only just started to grow a little bit of facial hair, I am 6'6?

Possible: Men's skeletal maturation occurs later than women's. An 18 yo female is typically fully grown. A man at 18 may have a few more years of potential growth especially if the secondary sexual characteristics (voice changes, hair growth over groin armpits and face, etc) occurred later. ...Read more

I have a cyst on my neck for years it was small and grew over time will I need to have it removed through surgery?

I have a cyst on my neck for years it was small and grew over time will I need to have it removed through surgery?

Get it checked: If it is a sebaceous cyst or a lipoma, if you want it gone, then you have to have it removed surgically. Depending on where it is and how big it is, often it can just be done in the doctor's office. You need to have it checked by a doc to know for sure that it is benign (not cancer) and to tell you what you need to do to get rid of it. ...Read more

I had a cyst removed about a month ago it is not healing-i have skin loss the size of a quarter and now a big hole that doesn't seem to be closing ?

I had a cyst removed  about a month ago it is not healing-i have skin loss the size of a quarter and now a big hole that doesn't seem to be closing ?

See your doctor: If the cyst was removed without closing the resulting post-excision defect then what you describe is in keeping with an open wound. This is usually left to heal by granulation (term used for wounds healing in from all sides). This can take up to 12 weeks. However, if the size & depth of the hole has not decreased in size by 50% by now then i would be concerned and have it checked. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Im 18 and I have a slight skeletal underbite. Can it get worse? If so is there some way to stop it from growing? It developed at 16 after braces.

Skeletal underbite: Hi Andy. Unfortunately, underbite skeletal growth patterns are very unpredicable. The answer to your question is that yes, it COULD get worse. Until your jaw stops growing, no one can determine that. Communicate with your orthodontist and a dental professional to monitor your skeletal growth. ...Read more

Depends on meaning: I encourage my patients to find physical activities that they can be engaged in for a lifetime. The idea of lifting weights can mean many things. The aap and certified trainer groups recommend no power lifting until the final stage of physical maturity which is when you reach your final height.Training in proper lifting under supervision of a certified trainer is fine. ...Read more

I have a big gallstone. Will it increase in size. If so, how much?

Get it out: If you are having symptoms from your gallstone, you should have the gallbladder removed. The stone will not get smaller, it will likely get larger and as it grows, it can lead to significant problems, including pressure necrosis of the gallbladder. At your age, while you are still relatively healthy, the removal can usually be done laparoscopically, with relatively quick recovery ...Read more

I've had a small tori on my palate for years. Occasionally it gets a little bigger and goes back down again so I don't notice. Why does it do this?

I've had a small tori on my palate for years. Occasionally it gets a little bigger and goes back down again so I don't notice. Why does it do this?

Torus Palatinus: Tori do not increase and decrease in size over time. They stay the same or may grow larger. Either it's not a torus or you just become more and less aware of it. It may get intermittently irritated. Regardless, have your General Dentist or an Oral Surgeon examine you for a definitive diagnosis and the answer to your question. ...Read more
