Swelling (Definition)

Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more

Could I have permanently damaged my back? I was playing soccer and as i slid for a pass i jarred my back it hasent been right for 2 weeks, my parents say its just muscle problems but I am seriously worried about my lower spine

Most : Most back injuries heal up over a period of weeks to months. I would recommend assessment by your primary care doctor to rule out serious injury like spinal fracture. If no broken bones are found then the initial treatment includes rest and anti-inflammatory medications (ibuprofen, Naproxen or Celebrex (celecoxib) unless you are unable for medical reason such as ulcers, kidney disease, etc) followed by physical therapy or chiropractic therapy. Patient who fail physical therapy may be a candidate for spinal injections. Most people will improve over time and not require surgery. ...Read more

Depends on symptoms: Severity of injury including pain, ability to bear weight, black and blue area (hematoma) can occur. Prior injury sometimes results in a weakened area in skeleton if insufficient or improper healing had occurred.If symptoms persist certainly seeing a physician and some imaging are possibilities. ...Read more

I had my last gardasil vaccine 2 months ago. No complications. Now i have a lump on my arm that hurts to touch and move my arm. Should i be concerned?

I had my last gardasil vaccine 2 months ago. No complications. Now i have a lump on my arm that hurts to touch and move my arm. Should i be concerned?

Infection?: If the lump is exactly at the site of the vaccine injection, maybe it is a delayed infection or other reaction to the shot. This sort of thing is rare but could happen. If the lump is anywhere else, probably it has nothing to do with the vaccine. See a doctor soon if the area continues to enlarge or becomes more tender; if any redness; or if you have fever. ...Read more

I have a lump under neath my testicle my right nut i don't no if i hurt it win i was a sleep or win i was playing with my self it dose not hurt ?

I have a lump under neath my testicle my right nut i don't no if i hurt it win i was a sleep or win i was playing with my self it dose not hurt ?

See answer : If the lump is separate from the testicle, it most likely is a swollen epididymis, epididymal cyst or other benign lesion. If this is the case, then a period of observation with regular self-exam is reasonable. If the lump is coming from the testicle, then testicular tumor needs to be ruled out. If this is the case or unsure, see md or urologist. ...Read more

I got a large bruise on my breast it was bigger than my hand The dr said if I got a lump to go back to the dr now I think I have one how serious is it?

Bruise: It could be a hematoma - a collection of blood - usually due to trauma. Or it could be an enlarging benign cyst. Neither are serious - more of a nuisance and discomfort. May need to be drained. I agree with the re-evaluation. ...Read more

Go to doctor: It is never a good idea to needle or cut yourself. The biggest concern in doing so is infection. The doctor would clean the skin first and use sterile instruments. You also likely do not know the anatomy and could cause bleeding or damage to structures. You need to have the area reevaluated by a doctor. ...Read more

I have an pain in my side when i fell over. Bruising still there for 2 weeks now i went for a run thinking i was ok it just worse my calves hurt now?

Side pain: I am not quite sure whether this is chest side or abdominal side, but if you fell a bruise or irritation to your side could continue to give you trouble for a few weeks. If the pain goes away with rest i would do my best to stay active, but limit things that hurt. Perhaps walk for awhile till you can run. ...Read more

Strain: This appears to be an acute strain of the muscle and in severe cases there may be associated microtears of fibers. Treatment consists of rest, elevation of the leg and cold applications for 48 hours. If there is no significant swelling switch to warm packs after 48 hours. Taking an anti-inflammatory like Advil or Aleve, if there is no associated severe bleeding(black and blue) helps reduce inflamm ...Read more

Hello I have a medium size lump, in my mouth, under my lower back teeth, I have not had any pain, but I was wondering if it was ok for me to fly?

Lumps: Hard or soft? How long has it been there? Movable? When was your last dental exam with radiographs. Answers to these questions would help with you question. It may be as simple as a bony exostosis, or it might be a draining abscess. Why don't you get it evaluated by a local dentist before you travel?
