Potato Black Ringspot Virus
Toasted pitta bread slightly brown/burnt be4 - no oil would acrylamide be formed? also would baked potato in oven without oil for 1hr? cancer causer?
Life is not that way: One potato or one piece of bread, burnt or not, does not cause cancer. Life doesn't work that way. As they say, "Don't sweat the small stuff." Avoid unnecessary chemicals and suspected toxins when possible, but live life without so many worries. Here in California, everything causes cancer, as evidenced by the Cancer Warning Signs that are posted in every single building I have set foot in. ...Read more

In stool, see yellow nickel sized oval floating(looked like lupini bean), poke it, it just mushed, what was this? Undigested fish pill?
Relax: There are may things with undigestible hulks such as favs beans, sausage/hot dogs, pills, small peppers, olives, corn, seeds and nuts in general. Unless you are having some dietary issues, abdominal pains/cramping regularly, or constipation that causes problems, I suggest you stop worrying about what's in you poop. If you are concerned, your gastroenterologist can explain in better detail. ...Read more
Had lunch with fried chicken, wings was slightly black burned. When i poop, my stool color was black. is it caused by chicken? no any other symptom.
Unlikely: Generally, black and tarry stools happen when there is cause of upper GI bleed. Here the hemoglobin undergoes chemical reaction leading to change in color. A common cause for this is ulcers. They can be caused by medications (advil (ibuprofen) or motrin) or infections (H. pylori). For now, I would suggest monitoring for other symptoms. It may be absolutely nothing because you have no other symptoms. ...Read more

My son has tonsillitis ad high temperature. Can i give him cold stuff like icecream, yoghurt or some warm water? Warm towel compress?
Worse: Cold things can increase metabolic activity (=temperature) as body warms them up and maintains its temperature. "tepid" rag (~90-95f) to skin will help cool--don't use too cool water as will cause shivering and increase body temp. Sounds like needs seen in er / urgent care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

3mmx2mm drk brown mole on breast appeared in pg (now 3mo pp) Flat,smooth,even color. It peeled in bath & black skin cameaway. Mole now a bit lighter but still flat&smooth&even. Could this be melanoma?
Possibly: It's really difficult to diagnose skin lesions without examining them. But you describe a black color to the mole, and a relatively quick development over a few months. Those are potential warning signs for skin cancer. A good physical examination, and very possibly a biopsy, would be prudent next steps. Please see your doctor and make those arrangements. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Found red bumps&white coating on very back of tongue. spicy food?Seasonal Allergies?Oral STD? I've had spicy food,weather has changed,maybe STD? :(
Tongue papillae?: Everyone has a row of 7-12 large (2-3 mm) papillae across the back of the tongue, called circumvallate papillae, perhaps what you have noticed. Google it for photos to compare. Entirely normal, not caused by any of the things you mention. No STD is a likely cause of any kind of painless bumps in the moth. But since STDs are on your mind, you're probably at risk, so get tested. Good luck! ...Read more
I just ate Italian bread from subway and the back of the crust had these circular, almost bubble like spots lighter than the bread color. Normal?
