Risk of B12 shots: No. Except it is an injection and may cause some pain. Vitamin b 12 is a water soluble vitamin, which means if you have enough in your body the excess will pass in the urine.It can also be given in oral form, but absorption is unpredictable, and nasal spray which is comparable to shots but costs more. There is no contradiction except I don't recommend in children and young adults as they don't need it. ...Read more

Cancer adjuncts: The AMAS test comes from a lab run by a group of independent medical thinkers. I would caution you against relying on it in health-care decisions.

They need to be correlated with your signs and symptoms. ...Read more

Most often a sudden,: Sharp chest wall pain, especially in a young person, is musculoskeletal, the result of a strain or minor injury to the muscles or ligaments supporting the sternum and ribs. I would be more concerned if the pain occurred with activity or you felt a lump or mass in your breast. Apply some heat. Consider taking prescribed doses of ibuprofen or naproxen for a few days. If persists, see your doctor:) ...Read more

Who said that?: Your granddaughter and your dog get more radiation in the basement of a newly built house than they could possible get from you after a cardiac nuclear stress test. If you were given a Technetium 99m product with your test than the radiation is effectively completely gone in 24 hours, and is barely detectable outside of your urine the same day. You were given poor advice. ...Read more

Acne: Sounds like you still have some acne. The white stuff that comes out is sebum or oil mixed with dead skin and immune cells. You may need some exfoliation to aid your skin in sloughing off the top layer so that your pores do not get clogged. A dermatologist can put you on a good regimen that may include some sessions with a aesthetician who can help clear your skin. ...Read more

Periods: Sometimes after surgery or in times of stress, the period can become irregular. However, removing a cyst (as long as the ovary is left) shouldn't cause you to stop ovulating permanently. If your period doesn't return after a few expected cycles, make sure you follow-up with your gynecologist. ...Read more
What would you suggest about having partial rotator cuff surgery and is this tear a high risk of increasing? I've just been diagnosis with a partial focal tear of the supraspinatus at insertion with most anchor fiber intact. After steriod injection, my ri
I don't have all the answers, but I might be able to clarify a few things.
First of all, when a test is interpreted as showing a "tear", that implies damage that should be repaired. But rotator cuff tendinopathy is more like greying and hair loss--expected changes with age. I find the term "partial tear" particularly misleading and even sinister. It's really just a signal change on MRI due to the changes in the tendon. You don't state your age and sport. If you are a throwing athlete under 40 years of age, the process is different.
Second, and to reinforce the first point, not all of these tendon changes cause pain. We know this from studies of patients with no shoulder pain and from studies of a patient's non-painful shoulder.
Third, like greying and hair loss we do know that rotator cuff tendinopathy is progressive.
Finally surgery does not cure the problem any more than hair plugs or rogain cures hair loss--it just patches things up for a bit. The larger the defect, the quicker it will recur. Surgery helps many people feel better, but you should not have surgery under the misconception that it is necessary. ...Read more
How to get rid of yeast infection permanently? My gynecologist gave me 2 pink pills (i forgot the name) to take one per week. However, I'm aware that it'll come back later because it happened before. And it really bothers me a lot. What can I do to get ri
Hopefully the medication your doctor gave you will work for your current infection. 5% of women will have recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (rvvc) which is classified as 4 or more vaginal yeast infections per year. This is typically treated with 6 months or more of antifungal medication. Talk to your doctor if you think you fit into this category.
Other things you can do to prevent reccurence is to avoid douching, avoid scented hygiene products, change tampons and pads frequently during menses, avoid tight, non breathable fabrics and change out of wet bathing suits as soon as possible.
I've attached a website below with lots of great information about yeast infections. I hope this helps! ...Read more

This is definitely not normal and warrants a medical evaluation. A feeling of a "cut' in your uterus is difficult to interpret. More detailed questions in order to determine exactly where the pain is and what it possibly signifies is essential. You could be dealing with an infectious process, ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancy, etc.
Please see your doctor. ...Read more
