Capillary bleed: The usual cause of a subconjunctival hemorrhage is a burst capillary and these are not serious despite looking quite ugly and no specific treatment is needed. The blood is slowly absorbed over a week or so. However if there is associated pain or visual disturbance, consult an ophthalmologist to be sure. ...Read more

I have been on zyprexa (olanzapine) for a year now and notice that my right eye is darker than my left most of the time been to doctor and optician?

Visual changes?: Have you had any actual changes in your vision?That is the only eye-related side effect of Zyprexa (olanzapine) that I am aware of;however,it's quite possible there are others that are not as well known.Have both your doctor and optician not known what's causing the darkening?My guess is that even if it is the Zyprexa (olanzapine) doing it,it's probably not serious enough to need to stop if you are doing well on it. ...Read more

I have a scar on my lower lip and have had it for about 2 years. Are there any ways other than surgery to make it 
less visible?

Lip scar: Greetings. I'm assuming your scar came from trauma. A planned incision around the lip is usually not too difficult to obtain an excellent cosmetic result. I would recommend seeing an ENT -Plastic Surgeon. Either of these doctors could perform a scar revision if less invasive skin care techniques fail to improve your appearance. ...Read more

One of my testicles is slightly larger than the other. Should i be worried?

One of my testicles is slightly larger than the other. Should i be worried?

Testicular asymmetry: There can be some variation in size between the testicles. If you have significant variation, or if the change is recently noticed, it is worth getting checked by your physician. Atrophy of one testicle can cause one to decrease in size, or the development of a testicular infection or tumor can make a testicle larger. Other problems such as hernia, hydrocele, varicocele or cyst may exist as well. ...Read more

I have some red bump in the  middle of my  head   for more  than three months, I used medicated shampoo and other things and it not working. I don't k?

A picture is worth..: ..a thousand words. There are NUMEROUS causes of a red skin bump. Perhaps most likely is a small hemangioma/blood vessel proliferation or tiny blood vessel injury. Other possibilities: an infected pimple, eczema/dry skin, contact allergy (touching something irritating).

I had cataract surgery a month ago, and now the operated eye looks smaller than the other one. , what can I do to make eye normal again?

I had cataract surgery a month ago, and now the operated  eye looks smaller than the other one. , what can I do to make eye normal again?

Droopy lid: Likely the eye is not smaller, just less open- or droopy. Wait at least 6 months, then have it evaluated by your eye surgeon or an oculo-plastic surgeon. Usually this is not an issue after both eyes have cataract surgery because they match, but it can be. Ptosis (droopy lid) does happen after cataract surgery; it is not necessarily serious. Be patient, then get evaluated. ...Read more
