I am 27 weeks pregnant and suddenly have 3-4 small skin colored non-painful bumps on mons pubis. My pap 2 mon. ago came back normal, what are they?

Skin lesions: I would be concerned these might be viral warts - they are extremely common, and indeed can appear as flesh-colored papules in the private area. If you show them to a doctor, I think the diagnosis could be confirmed. Luckily there is good treatment for these, AND there is an HPV vaccine as well that I highly recommend getting. Since you're pregnant - hopefully you are getting good prenatal care. ...Read more

See your doctor.: These could be a number of things, possible abscesses caused by localized staph infections -not unusual in the groin area. In any case i strongly recommend a check up with your doctor for diagnosis and treatment, as these sound painful. And finish the hpv vaccine series! ...Read more

Tick borne illnesses: The bites you received could have come from ticks which carry lyme disease, bartonella diseases, Ehrlicia infections, and babesia illnesses. which can cause joint pain at one month after the bites. The best thing you can do is see your primary care provider and have him or her take blood to identify whether you have been infected, There are antibiotics available to treat these diseases ...Read more

You're probably fine: Most young adults have several palpable lymph nodes. They're your friends. If they're not massively enlarged, fixed to normal structures, growing rapidly, or rock-hard and you feel okay, you owe it to yourself to stop worrying and get on with your life. ...Read more

I ws diagnsed wit a asymptomatc syrinx in my midcord 3 yrs ago. 2 weeks ago strtd hving back pain went to ER thy did a CT said it was gone...Possible?

Syringomyelia: An incidental or asymptomatic syrinx is a common finding on MRI studies. They can be very difficult to see on a ct scan and may not be visible but still present. Comparing a prior MRI study with a current one is the best way to gauge the status of the syrinx. ...Read more

Fell down stairs, banged shin last July. Recently found hard lump in same area. GP took x-rays, says it's subcutaneous scar. Chances of ST Sarcoma?

Fell down stairs, banged shin last July. Recently found hard lump in same area. GP took x-rays, says it's subcutaneous scar. Chances of ST Sarcoma?

Sensitive area: This is a sensitive area and the bone is very close to the surface. If the original injury went completely away this is probably unrelated. Xrays are helpful and sarcoma should be distinctive on plain films. Why do you think it is sarcoma? It is an improbable diagnosis but if there is any question further evaluation is absolutely necessary. ...Read more

Patience: Sounds like you may have experienced a concussion. The symptoms in most cases trail off over time, just advance your activities as you can tolerate, don't push yourself too hard, and try to not overuse headache medicines like tylenol, (acetaminophen) NSAIDs, or opioids, as they can cause rebound headaches if used more than 2-3 days a week. ...Read more

More testing needed: 2 possibilities include a viral infection such as herpes or infectious mononucleosis. I suggest a throat culture and blood tests to include CBC with differential and a monotest. If these are unrevealing, then a visit to an otolaryngologist is in order. ...Read more
