Help! Swollen perineum vein! What should I do?

See your doctor.: The perineum is the area between the anus and the vagina/penis.

It would be most prudent for you to see either your ob/gyn or a surgeon. ...Read more

I have advised patients who lift weights or run to wear those sleeves that marathoners use from a sports store or lymphedema sleeves from a specialist or dme store. ...Read more

The vein at the left side of my neck feels swollen especially when I try to get up from bed. Why is it like that?

The vein at the left side of my neck feels swollen especially when I try to get up from bed. Why is it like that?

Normal: Neck veins distend when we lie with our head lower than our heart or when we strain. With straining, the pressure within the chest increases and the blood flow through the neck veins decrease resulting in them enlarging. When straining is stopped, the pressure in the chest decreases and flow continues through the neck veins so they become less engorged. ...Read more
