Without : Without examining you or your stool, it's impossible to tell you what exactly you are seeing in your stool. One abnormal stool could just be something that you ate and as long as its not bloody, should not be too worrisome. If you continue having abnormal stools give your doctor a call. Other reasons to call are:

— any black, bloody or white stool
— any abdominal pain
fever
— vomiting. ...Read more

I have brown strange pigmentation on my glans penis. No medical problems and am a virgin. Pls see my glans pic: http://postimage. Org/image/kbwce8ml1/?

Recommend followup. : From the photograph, there appears to be a flat area of increased skin pigmentation on the glans penis. Although there are no features that immediately suggest malignancy, I do recommend you see a urologist or dermatologist, who can perform a proper history and physical exam, then follow the appearance of the lesion over time. I single snapshot is not as useful as multiple observations over time. ...Read more

Knee scope done.dr took picture of knee cap. This showed that it was white and brown. Dr said brown part was arthritic change.does this sound right?

Bare bone arthritis : Yes. Cartilage is usually white. When the cartilage under parts of the knee cap wears out completely, you are stuck with bare bone. The bare bone spots usually appear yellowish brown. Arthritis is the absence of cartilage covering the bone in this situation. If you still have knee cap pain after the scope, you may benefit from viscosupplementation injections to improve the pain. ...Read more

I have a nearly invisible light brown blotch on penis head. 2mm by 2mm im white 19 and circumcised. Post e-mail for picture to get better idea. Thnx?

May Not Be Serious: It may simply be a dry patch. The head of the penis is mucosal skin (like inside the mouth) and once you are circumcised, the skin attempts to "toughen up." it may also be the start of a flat genital wart. It would be best to have it checked out, but it is not an emergency. ...Read more

I have pics. I have 18 days till my period starts. Today I have brown discharge. I didn't have sex and I did recieve my last period. First time happen?

Brown discharge: Brown discharge about halfway between your periods can be normal mid-cycle ovulatory bleeding. When blood sits in the uterus for a while, it turns brown. If this resolves in a day or two and there are no other problems (no fever, no pelvic pain, no pain on urination), it is okay to wait and watch. It can happen again mid-cycle, so it would be helpful to keep a calendar to monitor the pattern. ...Read more
