Have a lump on side of nose (10 mm x 5 mm). Grew quickly (2 days), but has stopped. What could it be? Dues not hurt. Is firm.

Zit?: Likely a pimple, boil, or infected hair follicle or oil gland. Apply warm compresses to it for 20 minutes 4-6 times a day. Don't pop it and it might drain on its own. If it gets worse, really painful, spreading redness or you run a fever, please get seen right away. Facial infections can spread rapidly and be very dangerous. Since this is summer, if it itches, could be a bug bite, too! ...Read more

Maybe: Only way to find out if it is broken is with an x-ray. If it is broken and non-displaced the fracture will heal itself. If just swelling that will resolve itself also. But if broken and displaced you will have two choices leave it alone and live with a crooked nose or have it bone set for a straighter nose. ...Read more

No idea: If you had a full ENT exam and nothing was found, there are other causes of neck pain, from the many muscles in the neck and throat, to other problems. If your pcp and an ENT specialist cannot find a cause, you may want to go to a pain management specialist and see what they have to say. Physical therapy, massage or acupuncture may be of some help. ...Read more

My 7 month baby tilts her head, (to both sides) once in a while! She sleeps on her side, is that the reason? How can be stopped?

Benign torticollas: There is a poorly understood process called benign paroxysmal torticollis of infancy that arises in late infancy. It is transient, recurrent & can be associated with agitation, pallor or vomiting. Some suspect a tie in with the process of vertigo in adults, but this resolves usually before 3. Head tilt can also reflect a problem with eye muscle balance but usually would only involve one side. ...Read more

I am currently on oramorph 5mg 4x daily. I get a sensation of a 'fuzzy' type feeling in my head. Can this be stopped or is it a normal side affect?

I am currently on oramorph 5mg 4x daily. I get a sensation of a 'fuzzy' type feeling in my head. Can this be stopped or is it a normal side affect?

Oramorph: You are on some stout narcotic analgesic. This is likely a side effect and should be discussed with your prescribing physician or pain specialist. I am concerned that you also list tramadol. Generally, you do not take tramadol if you are on chronic narcotic therapy as it may precipitate an acute withdrawl scenario. Don't drive or operate dangerous equip. Until this is resolved. ...Read more

My 7 week old scooted off the side of our bed. She has a small knot on her head, should I take her to the er? She is showing no sign of anything wrong. Actions and reactions are perfectly normal. And she stopped crying almost instantly when I picked her u

Yes. Have her seen.: It's so easy to have a baby roll over or scoot off a bed or changing table. The facts that she is acting normally and cried right away - stopping with being picked up, are all reassuring. But i'd advise you to have your seven-week-old evaluated in the er just in case.

Hello, I have a very sore lump on the back right side of my head. It appeared yesterday from no where and has not stopped hurting, should I be worried?

Likely a lymph node: Lymph nodes can develop around head and neck area as a response to some infection or inflammation in the surrounding tissues. Sometimes superficial skin infections or even dandruff or lice would be enough. Take some ibuprofen (400 mg) thrice a day for a couple of days. See your GP if it doesn't resolve within a week or so. Good luck:) ...Read more

I stopped smoking for 50 days. After this time my head's right side become heavy! I afraid that I get brain stroke. Waht I doing? I don't like smoking.

Not sure what? Is: I don't know what you mean by the right side of your head becoming "heavy, " and impending strokes don't usually give any symptom like what you describe. There is nothing bad that can happen by quitting smoking, particularly after 50 days. See your doctor, check your blood pressure and get a general physical. Returning to smoking is the worst thing you can do. A stroke at age 34 isn't likely at all. ...Read more

Prob nerve pressure: It is hard to be specific without examination. You may need an MRI for a definitive diagnosis. The good news is that in most cases, involving disc narrowing causing nerve compression, non surgical treatment with physical therapy usually suffices. ...Read more

Started w/a sore throat, then 1 side of my head stopped up. Nasty productive cough, now congestion has moved to other side of head. No energy & sore...?

URI: The symptoms you describe are typical for a viral upper respiratory infection. You will feel miserable for the next 3 to 5 days and then will start to clear up. Treatment is really symptomatic and I recommend using afrin nasal spray for severe congestion, Ibuprofen if you feel achy and ipratropium nasal spray if you are really drippy. If not getting better after 7 to 10 days see your doctor. ...Read more
