Possible Hernia: A hernia is when the muscle in the abdomen splits and allows the tissue underneath to poke through. This sometimes creates a bump on your abdomen, but not always. Hernias can be repaired with routine surgery. You need to have this evaluated by your doctor as untreated hernias can become strangulated and cause severe problems. ...Read more

I have very sensitive skin. Days ago I started with a small rash on my mid abdomen. Today I woke with my whole mid abdomen raised & fiery itchey.

Needs to be checked: The rash needs to be checked. It may be some kind of Contact Dermatitis or an allergic rash.
But we can not say with certainty what it may be. You can try using over the counter Hydrocortisone cream and over the counter Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for itching and consult your Doctor or a Dermatologist asap to confirm the diagnosis and treatment with local cream and if indicated short course of oral steroids ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are very difficult to describe in words, so an exam by a primary care doctor and/or a dermatologist when the rash is present, is needed. Sometimes a yeast/fungus can cause such symptoms. Other times, such rashs occur from reactions with chemicals, irritants, plants, or allergens. If one cannot go to the doctor, then taking a series of photos to show the doctor later is helpful. ...Read more

Psychological: First, as a physician I am going to speak very frankly to you. If you are seven months pregnant and not seeing an obstetrician then this choice is putting your life and the baby's life at risk. In this day and time where obstetrics can save women and baby's from most of the common problems that plague pregnancy makes not seeing an OB nearly a crime.
Second, if you doubt the test go see an ob. ...Read more

Very low: Given your age and the extensive workup it's highly unlikely u have a malignancy. If your thyroid hasn't been checked then maybe consider talking to your doctor about a TSH?

My 6 year old son is vomiting once amonth and is fine in between episodes CT scan head normal xray abdomen excrss poop this morni g vomited only yellow mucus no food since he had a small early dinner why is he vomiting thoufh once a month?

Too much food: If your son is overweight, then you are feeding him too much. If he is not, then it could be food allergies. Start a food diary and see when he throws up. Other causes are acid reflux, stress, eating junk food, poor food schedule, drinking soda among other reasons. Have him eat just fresh organic fruits and vegetables which are washed. If he is drinking boxed milk, then it is surely due to CARREEGANAN. ...Read more
