Follow with care

Developmental_pediatrics
It is normal for boys (and girls) to experience changes of the nipples and breasts between 9 and 12 years of age. Boys may develop small breast buds and sometimes have sensitive areas with small amount of drainage. It is important to discuss with a pediatrician and evaluate a boy's genitalia to ensure normal development. If breast buds develop excessively (gynecomastia) treatment is available.

Hello,

Hello, the concern is that he may have more swelling from his tonsil, throat, adenoids. This may be partially occluding his airway. I do recommend going to the hospital as he may need steroids to reduce the swelling.

i have a 14 yr old son that has coarectation of the aorta is this severe?

Depends

Aorta
It depends on the severity of the coarctation. Some are very mild. I suspect your child has hypertension which lead to the coarctation diagnosis. In these cases, the coarctation is usually severe enough to require treatment. We can often do this in the cath lab. The procedure is generally safe, but there are risks. Please discuss this with your child's cardiologist.

Which protein bar/shake is appropriate for my 15 yr old son?

Protein

Protein
Protein is important in muscle building in a young teen ager. It is best to make ones own protein shakes which contain skim milk, yogurt, eggs, fruit and nut butter if you wish . This way you know what your child is getting, rather than many commercial preparation that can contain more carbs than protein

Help docs! My 4 yr old son fractured his collarbone?

Your question is ???

Fracture
This is a common injury and usually requires limited intervention.The collarbone is in a rubberized sleeve and often cracks without separating, leaving treatment using a simple sling or a brace to keep the shoulders drawn back to keep it in position. The fracture heals with a bump at the sight that gradually changes over several years, most becoming unnoticable.
