Hello my question is my boy friend has some balls i don't know how to call it
in his left adomen and he does want to see  a doctor and i want to know what is it 
when he was small he saw a doctor and they told him that i does 
not eat well but he is in go

I : I don’t know the exact location of the balls in his abdomen. If he has swollen masses that are near the top of the groin, or near the area that the groin meets the leg, this could be something called inguinal lymphadenopathy. That means swollen lymph glands. This could be the sign of an infection. If that is where the balls are and they do not go away soon, suggest that you boyfriend sees his doctor so that the underlying cause can be figured out. ...Read more

Kick him out!: Pertussis (whooping cough) is a highly contagious bacterial disease that causes uncontrollable, violent coughing. The coughing can make it hard to breathe. A deep "whooping" sound is often heard when the patient tries to take a breath. He puts you and other family members at risk if it truly is whooping cough. Tell him to get to the doctor and stop putting you at risk. ...Read more

Hi my grandson is 6yr old and is austic can talk he has been pulling on his peins a lot is that normal for him and now he is getting my daughters had to show her down there what could it be dr please help us ?

Could be infection: Urinary tract infection is quite common, much more in girls, but happens in boys too. Taking care of an autistic child is very challenging because of communication problems. Since he is pulling on his private and showing it to his mom, it is likely that he is having some trouble such as pain when he pees and urges to urinate etc... I suggest getting him to see his doc for eval/treat. Good luck. ...Read more

My sister has lost emotion for my father and she is paranoid about him as if he is a threat to her and really hates him.What should we do to fix that?

Defining the cause: How old is your sister? If she is an adolescent, it may be related to a normal developmental period of reevaluating your parents and her relationships. Does your sister have a legitimate reason to fear your father? Is he overbearing or abusive in any way that would contribute to her fear? It is important to get to the cause of her emotions in order to design an effective treatment. ...Read more

My 4year old son has a difficult time urinating, he has to force it out sometimes i plan on setting him a doctors app. But is there anything i can do?

Urinary Issues: First: make sure he is drinking well. When bladder is full, the urge comes. Second: make sure he is not constipated. If there is hard stool sitting in rectum or lower colon, dysfunctional voiding happens. Third: anatomic abnormality of urethral opening, called posterior urethral valve can cause difficult urination, urine stream becomes narrow, jet like, child has to force to pee. Talk to his doc. ...Read more

My dad says he has a tumor in his chest but he's scared to go to the doctor.What harm can it do to him?

Must be evaluated: The word tumor just means a lump of cells that isn't supposed to be there. It can be small, benign (not cancerous, so doesn't spread to other places), in an unimportant place, and slow-growing, which is not a big deal. It can be big, cancerous, growing into vital organs, and rapidly increasing, which can kill the person quickly. Of course, it can also be anywhere in between those extremes. ...Read more

Make defecation fun!: Defecation/evacuation=a built in reflex. Creating/promoting control issues (you/others vs. baby) creates problems (wars) leading to longstanding health problems. If baby has been scolded/punished (by anyone) for defecating at inconvenient time/location, problems begin & can build.

You certainly can: By staying calm. Overreacting to your child's behavior or response to ur command isn't going to get u anywhere. They will overreact and become"defiant " and it will escalate and get into your nerves now making you angrier and mad. Therefore nothing accomplished only fuming parent. Conclusion adhd, defiant kid, brat , whatever you call it. Talk to them calmly and make it a game and fun. Shd work! ...Read more

How can I help make my child to stop him from holding his bowels? My six year old does not want to poop. He holds them for so long and then when he finally goes, theyre almost as big as baseballs in diameter with a lot of blood...By him doing this, his un

Often, : Often, if there is a pattern of holding in of bowel movements, there is an identifiable source of pain or discomfort. One common cause is the presence of anal fissures (tears in the skin around the anus) which can hurt during bowel movements. In some cases, there can also be anatomical (structural) issues which cause the bowel movements to have a more difficult time passing. The best starting point would be an evaluation with his pediatrician to evaluate for the reason he is holding his bowels. Often, guidance will be for use of medication to loosen the stool to the point that pain is not derived and develop a pattern of comfort and trust in regular production of bowel movements. ...Read more

Pediatric neurolo-: Gists & neurosurgeons like those at primary children's in slc would need to review your daughter's medical records, including copies of all mri's of the brain & eeg's ( not just the reports), head & body growth charts, results of genetic & other lab tests, developmental/academic testing & progress reports, then evaluate her themselves to determine the benefits vs. Risks of brain surgery. ...Read more

If cancer is a metabolic disease, why are we feeding children w/ DIPG lots of carbs & sugars...limited glucose should be helpful preventing growth?

If cancer is a metabolic disease, why are we feeding children w/ DIPG lots of carbs & sugars...limited glucose should be helpful preventing growth?

Be discerning: Cancer is not a "metabolic disease" as represented on websites like the one you have been reading. It's the result of accumulated genetic mutations. You're not going to "limit glucose" in any case -- anything you eat gets turned into this, as it's the key fuel in your body. I trust you'll have the common sense to recognize when a website is offering complete disinformation -- many cancer sites do. ...Read more

My nephew pees many times in night on bed. He's 6 years old. How can we stop this?

Enuresis alarm: Enuresis can persist into young adulthood and is usually familial. It can be quite frustrating for affected people. First line prevention is avoiding liquids after 6 pm and voiding before bed. Enuresis alarms are devices that attach to the waistband and vibrate when the bladder contracts, and DDAVP is a medication (oral or nasal spray) which are other treatment options. I hope this helps! ...Read more
