Possibly: May Thurner Syndrome, or compression of the iliac vein as you mentioned, means you are at risk for DVT's or deep venous thromboses. These can dislodge from the leg and travel, through the heart, to the vessels to the lungs and cause a pulmonary embolus (PE). PE can cause chest pain and shortness of breath. Would absolutely have this evaluated by your physician as soon as possible. ...Read more

If the blood clot goes to the lung and goes untreated and it can cause right ...Read more

I'm pursuing medicine and I'd like to know the effect of fusion of iliac crest on the height. To what extent its fusion increases the height of a man?
None: When the iliac crest fuses (fuses all the way), that means the skeleton has finished growing in height. The iliac crest itself does not cause one to be taller or shorter (or at least not by any noticeable amount). Height is affected by growth in the long bones (such as the leg bones) plus growth in the spine. ...Read more
Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

I have pain and discomfort that comes and go in the right iliac area and up to lower rib cage for more than 6 months what could it be?
Depends: Sacro-iliac injections would only be expected to cure symptoms coming from that specific joint. It would be fairly uncommon for sacro-iliac problems to cause pain in the tailbone (coccyx). There is a condition known as Coccydynia. In that case the coccyx is tender and patients have pain sitting down. A steroid injection in the coccyx is the main injection we try for that. ...Read more
