What does anterior angulation of the two lowest cuccygeal segments mean? I'm trying to nave sense of this

I nave excess urination, my urine gets diluted and can go as friquent as 20-30 mins. This happens when I am a bit on cold or airconditioning drafts.
I nave recently been diagnosed with gynecomastia and I want to bring it down. The nipple size is huge and very amberising. Male 14?
Surgery Helpful.: I have found that gynecomastia, if persistent, is often best treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area. If the prominence of the chest wall is caused by adipose tissue, then liposculpture surgery alone may suffice. For patients with excess skin, common after weight loss, skin excision may also be necesary. ...Read more

Hi ive been naving irregular menstruation. Last month there was a lot of dark blood. Now it only lasted for 2 days 3 drops of blood. I have cramps?
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

My son is 2months nand weights 12lbs and I was wondering when should I switch him facing the back of the passenger seat?
Never before age 2yr: Rear facing allows the crash forces on babies head to be cushioned by the seat, forward facing throws the head forward and stretches the spinal cord. This can result in spinal cord injury or sudden death. I took care of one that was quadriplegic because of this. It's not safe to forward face before 2 in normal kids, and I recommend parents keep them rear facing as long as the seat allows it. ...Read more

Mederma or hexilak - which one is more effective in scar minimization? Kindly suggest a better name if any?
Depends on scar: Scar creams and gels work differently, hexilak has silicone, Mederma does not. Benefit is questionable, however it does not hurt to try them.

Hypertrophic, wide or keloid scars are handled differently. Consult your plastic surg. ...Read more
