Moisture or cream under the coban could cause the symptoms noted, bur will be normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pea size bluish bulge above elbow. injured elbow 3 weeks ago, non-displaced radial head crack. elbow'd been taped tight for 8 days.is bulge worrysome?

The important thing about radial head fractures is the prolonged immobilization of the elbow may cause permanent stiffness. ...Read more

Can achilles feel tight and thicker even 8 months after ankle sprain? Sprained ankle achilles feels much thicker and knotted than noninjured
Not overall growth: An injury to the penis should not have anything to do with overall growth of the body. If you mean can it stunt the growth of the penis during puberty, that really depends what the injury was and how extensive the damage is. If it was something minor, it is doubtful there would be any change in overall length or width. If there was significant damage, there could be scarring or permanent changes. ...Read more
If 1 of genitfemoral nerve fibres damaged due2 scrotal trauma(like some1 holds&pulls scrotum badly, & there was breaking thread feeling shud it heal?
Probably not related: Genital pain can be confused but usually still can be confidently diagnosed with a detailed focused history, physicals on scrotum and its contents, and tests as needed after analyzing the quality and quantity of pain with its detailed sequence of events. In reality, minor pulling or contusion will not cause irreversible damage. More doubt? Go to see urologist for differential diagnosis. Best... ...Read more
