Glass canister for sugar used for coffee and cereal only. Noticed tiny nicks on inside edge where small pieces have chipped. Ingestion? Dangerous?
Not particularly: We have plenty of experience with ingested foreign material from dealing with toddlers. Everything from screws and hairpins to rocks and many others.I also knew a Navy seal who put on a show at bars eating a light bulb with no long term effects. The body tends to coat any sharp edge with glue like food debris and it slips through the digestive tract.I wouldn't worry about it. ...Read more

Sacrum x-ray shows a few small black dots on lower pelvic bone & 2 large white encapsulated spots in pelvic space, what could these anomalies be?
Xray: xrays of the sacrum also will show signs of gas and particles in the large intestine. An xray takes 3 dimensions and reduces it to 2 dimensions, overlaying multiple structures into a flat image, distorting things to some degree. Pelvic phleboliths (vascular calicifications) are common. The sacrum also has foraminae where nerves pass, which may appear as dark spots. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do granules of a dental bone graft move around? Like under your interior jaw bone near the extraction site.
Hopefully minimal: One of the reason why the bone graft fail is the instability or movement of the graft. True grafting required graft stabilization with membrane, cages (titanium fixture to protect graft), or screw in the case of block graft. Micromovement of graft will hinder the fibroblast migration and adhesion and interupt vascular genesis. Must achieve good clotting and full closure for graft stabilization. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Noticed small slightly larger than pin size cuts on numerous places of my body after a 10 minute sunbed, what could this be?
Skin damage: of many types are common consequences of sunbed use. Sunbeds give out ultraviolet (UV) rays that increase the risk of developing all types of skin cancer. Many sunbeds give out greater doses of UV rays than the midday tropical sun. Use of sunbeds also results in premature aging of the skin and development of wrinkles. Looking better in the short run is hardly worth the long term risks. ...Read more

Scared. White patches/whitehead looking in my mouth. Some tiny ones on the inside of cheeks/few larger ones behind where molars wld be on the bone.
White Patch Check: Oral white patches need to be evaluated. There are many causes..The large majority are benign. Occasionally a biopsy is done to determine the cause. Again the large majority biopsied tissues are harmless. Many general dentists do scrape biopsy which is fast and easy for the patient called cdx. But this is less accurate. Others including oral surgeons can do excisional biopsy that removes it whole. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
