Iam 27old, idid hydrocele aspiration by needle, after my doctor finish the process I saw the syringe was fullfluid and blood inside it, is it danger?
I've been having a bit of trouble with what I believe to be a recurring hydrocele, ie. My right testicle area routinely filling up with water, becoming larger and heavier, then draining just as quickly. Could this be the result of an infection?
I think if this: Symptom was due to recurrent or persistent infection you would likely have more symptoms: redness, heat, pain, tenderness, maybe even fever. There is often inflammation that accompanies the fluid accumulation associated with a hydrocele. I advise you see a Doctor, preferably a urologist for evaluation. Most helpful to go when the scrotum/testicle is swollen. Ultrasound examination is most useful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had hydrocele surgery 2 weeks ago for the second time. 2 days after drain removed, the tail of epididymis is tender and larger then usual. Infection?
RU sure epididymis?: Not unusual for scrotum 2B tender 2 days after drain removal. Wonder why you think epididymis is tender ; larger. Tunica vaginalis, which is wall of hydrocele is attached to epididymis and bound 2B tender for a while after surgery/drain removal. Best to discuss with your urologist. ...Read more

I drained an epidermoid cyst in vaginal area with a needle when it got infected. It left a small hole that hasn't healed after 6 months. What do I do?

When a vaginal cyst on the top labia has to be drained does the numbing needle inserted to the cysts hurt?
Yes, for a second: The numbing needle only hurts for about 2 seconds and then the medicine immediately takes over. Initially the medicine can have a burning sensation, but then turns totally numb. It happens so fast you really don't have time to think about it.... Thank goodness, right? ...Read more

My husband has been diagnosed with elbow bursitis. His doctor tried draining it, but after he stuck the needle in, he said that there was no fluid in there. Is bursitis possible without fluid?
Bad idea: Epidermal cysts usually are connected to the skin surface by a pore, and sometimes the contents can be gently expressed from the cyst. However, the cyst will recur because the epithelial cells of its walls will continue to shed into the cavity. Manipulating or piercing the cyst could lead to an infection. Only by removing the whole cyst including the walls can recurrence be prevented. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can I pop a dental abscess? I think I have a dental abscess. It's soft and squishy. It doesn't really hurt but it's annoying. Already had the tooth drained or whatever dentists do. Can I pop it if I use a sterile needle?
See a dentist: You have an infection. It needs to be treated. Popping can relieve some of the pressure that you feel but it will not cure the infection. Please see a dentist and get this treated. Without treatment things will progress and get worse. You may not have so much pain because there can be drainage, but the infection is still there. It can effect the rest of your body. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Dad had varicose vein surgery years ago he bumped his leg & now there is a bump & the dr. Keeps using a needle & drain fluid is the a fix for this?
Yes: Trauma to soft tissue of the body can result in bleeding into the tissue forming a hematoma (clotted blood) and over time this is broken down by the body, and aspiration (using needle to drain) will often resolve the swelling, at times requiring several attempts. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Urgent care dr used needle, drained small boil by nipple/sternum. I replaced bandage, used miprocin. Dr wants me to take bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) but afraid side eff?
Talk to your doc!: Communication is key. Talk to doctor caring for you. He knows more about you than some online guy/gal. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is a standard sulfa antibiotic used for skin infections, especially when worried about drug-resistant bacteria, eg mrsa. What side effects are you afraid of? I would only worry if you said anaphylaxis. Aside from that, i'd be more worried about cellulitis. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Hello. I'm a medical student but found it a little bit difficult to differentiate between hydrocele and a cyst on Ultrasound. Any advice?
Here are some. ..: An adequate combo of history + physical exam raises and leads to clinical suspicion, which in turn, prompts US imaging for confirmation if the intra-scrotal details could not be clearly palpable for differentiation - but not necessary for every case. Hydrocele denotes fluid inside the space of tunica vaginalis and cyst usually occurs inside the globus major of epididymis. More? Ask staff Doc. .. ...Read more
