I have a lump/swelling inside my vagina directly below my urethra? It blocks entire vaginal opening its so swollen, and its painful.

Ouch: That sounds painful. The most common lesion like this in the vagina is going to be a Bartholin's gland cyst, if it's really big, then it could definitely extend up as high as you describe. I would see a doctor or clinic asap and they can possibly drain this for you and relieve the pain that you are feeling. Regardless, an exam is warranted. Hope you feel better soon! ...Read more

See an Obgyn to help verify the diagnosis. The proper treatment can be prescribed and recommended ...Read more

Most likely it: is a yeast or bacterial infection. Please get yourself to the nearest healthcare provider to get diagnosed and treated. And in the future please do not have unprotected intercourse if anyone unless you have been married to that person for 10 years and trust him to be faithful with you. You never know who the other person may have been with and some things hang out a long time... ...Read more

Without treatment that tooth can be lost. Have your dentist determine why you have the opening... cavity, broken filling, shifting teeth?

I am 22 weeks pregnant w/ my 2nd & got a severe sunburn on my knees. The swelling is very painful and basically prevents me from walking.  Treatment?

Sunburn or arthritis: Are you sure that it is a sunburn? Knee skin that is burned will still permit walking. Have your OB MD evaluate your knees to determine if there is something else going on such as arthritis or an auto immune disorder. It is hard to know how to treat this problem until the actual problem is confirmed. ...Read more

20 year-old woman with 2 painful left popliteal lumps, "inconclusive" x-ray and MRI, leading to difficulty standing or walking.....?

Excisional Biopsy: Since the X-rays and MRI are inconclusive, it would be prudent to have one of the lumps removed for pathological evaluation (excisional biopsy). It is likely a benign process, like an angiolipoma, a neurfoibroma, a neurilemoma or a Masson's tumor, but a pathological diagnosis is your best option at this time. Plus, removing the lump will likely make the pain resolve. Good luck. ...Read more
