What is a grossly small stable syrinx in the lower cervical spine? I was told it's part of my normal anatomy but that just doesn't make sense

What is a grossly small stable syrinx in the lower cervical spine? I was told it's part of my normal anatomy but that just doesn't make sense

Like a cyst: A syrinx in the spine is just a small fluid filled sac. It usually does not cause problems if it is stable. Your doctor may want to have it checked again to make sure it is stable, that is not enlarging. If it is truly stable then it is nothing to worry about. If they cause symptoms or enlarged they can be drained but it is best to leave them alone if they are causing no problems. ...Read more

With normal anatomy does their upper palate touches the lower palate uptill epiglottis when their mouth is closed? Pls pls send the reply yes or no.

With normal anatomy does their upper palate touches the lower palate uptill epiglottis when their mouth is closed? Pls pls send the reply yes or no.

Throat anatomy: I'm afraid it's not a simple yes or no answer. There isn't a lower palate and an upper palate. There's a hard palate and a soft palate. Neither of them touches the epiglottis when the mouth is closed. The soft palate descends into the throat from the back of the hard palate, and lays behind the tongue when the mouth is closed and during breathing and swallowing. The epiglottis is much lower down. ...Read more

Umbilication: Molluscum contagiosum bumps have a characteristic indentation or umbilicalion at the top of each bump. This can sometimes be appreciated with a magnifying glass. A dermatologist will often give the bump in question a light freeze with liquid nitrogen to accentuate the umbilication so when in doubt see your dermatologist. ...Read more

Are papules normal anatomy of the soft palate? I see a bunch of dots on the soft palate, above uvula and only appears if i touch palate with finger.

MoneyWhereYrMouthIs: Ahh,so!

Baby boy has penile adhesion. Per doc, been pulling back and Vaseline. Now notice small skin bump/tag next to urethra. Normal anatomy? Or concern?

Baby boy has penile adhesion. Per doc, been pulling back and Vaseline. Now notice small skin bump/tag next to urethra. Normal anatomy? Or concern?

Due to traction: Skin bump next to the urethra could be normal. However I do recommend that you snap a picture of it and show it to either your physician or contact one of us and we can digitally review the image. Likely from the traction you are applying, which is good. ...Read more
