Injection site?: Usually people asking about this are asking if Insulin can cause thickening of the skin at an injection site; the answer is yes. The solution is to stop using that site until the skin thins back down. After that, rotate your injection sites regularly, and never use one site more often than any of the others. ...Read more
Not work if swallow: Insulin is a peptide made by cells in the pancreas that regulates blood sugars. Many people with diabetes require it to control sugars. When swallowed it is digested in the stomach and does not work. It will only work if injected under the skin. Inhaled Insulin will also work, but is probably not safe on your lungs. ...Read more

Morphine, coumadin, (warfarin) heparin, insulin, which one is given via the intramuscular route and which subcutaneously
MMR is given SQ: Mmr should be given sq as that route gives the best antibody response and any deviation from that recommendation can result in inadequate protection. However, response to MMR vaccine probably will not be affected if administered by the im rather than sq route, and, therefore, repeating the dose is not necessary. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

24 yrs smoking.Ct found 11x10 lobular density containing punctate calcification.Posterior lumbar subcutaneous edema.Basilar atelectatic cyst.worry?
Yes . . .: Wow, smoking since 11yo? Bottom line, if screening CT scan finds something abnormal, you need to chat w/ordering physician to discuss your options regarding next step eg how to figure out what's going on. Sometimes the radiologist will suggest repeating a scan in a specific period of time if it's small & indeterminate. But this again is something best discussed w/ordering physician. Best wishes! ...Read more
Presacral ultrasound shows "thickening/edema of subcutaneous fatty tissue". PAINFUL and hard lump under the skin and can be felt. Surgical removal?
U/S is non specific: You need diagnosis. More history. The U/S adds a little but not enough. MRI would also add info, but again may not be enough. MRI would be most sensitive in seeing borders and might give useful info for a surgeon, for ex. vascularity. Only surgeons can decide on incisional bx. vs. excision. Hacking around is cheapest, but for me (a radiologist) MRI is good to avoid surprises and safe to do. ...Read more

Presacral granuloma with peripheral calcification within the midline subcutaneous tissues. on butt. says not related to palpable finding. I'm Confused
Incidental finding: On the MRI, they did not some soft tissue lesions with calcification in your subcutaneous tissues in the midline. When they get an MRI for a superficial lesion they will often put a marker there to identify the area in question. So presumably these lesions were not in the area of the palpable "mass" being evaluated. I would discuss with your doctor and go through your MRI with him or her. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can tapeworm infection become systemic? Can it invade the subcutaneous tissue (face, extremities, torso) in the form of swelling, tape-like drainage?
Can be serious: Pork tapeworms in particular can migrate to other parts of the body and cause damage in the liver, eyes, heart, and brain and these infections can end up being life-threatening.Otherwise we usually see nausea, weakness, diarrhea, abdominal pain, loss of appetite OR hunger,fatigue, weight loss, and vitamin deficiencies. Roundworms and hookworms are more likely,I believe,to cause cutaneous symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
