Thoracic Neoplasms In Children
Maybe echo: A mass inside the heart or in the wall of the heart would not likely show up on a chest xray. If the mass was large enough or caused the heart to enlarge or if there was a pericardial effusion associated with it, there may be an indirect finding on the xray. But the mass itself would not show up on the xray. Ct of the chest could also potentially see a focal mass in the heart. ...Read more
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more

Sort of, and yes: Paraplegics have little or no sensation during sexual activity. Both men and women can have leg spasms, which make body positioning challenging. Men usually no longer have any or adequate erections. Fertility in paraplegic women is not changed. With a paraplegic man, there are special ways to collect sperm, which doctors can then put into his wife to create a pregnancy. ...Read more

Cough in chidren sma: Small children unfortunately can not cough up the mucus and the just swallow it, which is ok, as it does not cause any ill effects.

Do older children get bronchiolitis? Most of what I'm reading says younger children get it, but my 6 yr old was diagnosed w/it after ER chest xray.
Yes: Actually, even an adult can get bronchiolitis, although that is very unusual. But children can certainly get it, especially if they have underlying respiratory conditions like asthma of cystic fibrosis, or if they live in areas with lots of respiratory irritants like smoke or dust. Supportive care is all that is needed for most cases. Make sure they drink lots of fluids, keep environment clean! ...Read more

Congested chest&sticky phlegm in throat, best home remedies to bring quick relief? For adults? For children?
Lots of fluids!: Extra fluids may help. Make your own cough medicine by using 1 part tea, 1part honey, and l part lemon juice. An "expectorant" is an over-the-counter medication which may help to liquify mucous secretions and make them easier to cough up. Don't give honey to babies under one year old. And it goes without saying that a non-smoking environment will be helpful to everyone. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

I pediatric doctor I noted children age from 3 to 9 month complain cough and runny nose. Breathing by mouth. On auscultation chest clear what is treat?
Runny nose: The details aren't specific enough to answer clearly. If the child has a low grade temperature it may be one of many common viral illnesses.

So it is important to follow up with a pediatrician to evaluate and treat. ...Read more

You need to see a doctor.: Undoubtedly, you have experienced a lot of stress in the recent past and presently have a child to care for, which does not help. Not withstanding the possibility of a PTSD / anxiety related disorder, my recommendation is that you see any physician in your vicinity. Family Med, Internal Med, Neurologist, ENT, etc. You begin by telling them of your current poor balance, loss of coordination, dizziness and extremity numbness only. This warrants an MRI of the head. You need a physical exam and some bloodwork done. Based on your evaluation and the test results, that physician will direct you to the necessary specialist if it is indeed warranted. ...Read more
Neoplasm: A neoplasm is a mass produced by the abnormal growth of tissue. Neoplasms can be benign or malignant. Both types of neoplasms can be serious depending on where they are located. Benign neoplasms in a confined space (such as the brain in the skull) can produce serious consequences. Obviously malignant neoplasms can also be very serious. ...Read more
Not necessary: Hurtel cell neoplasm can be adenoma (not cancer) or carcinoma (cancer). There is not much difference between the two with regards to age, sex, or history of head and neck radiation. However, hurtle cell carcinoma (cancer) tends to be larger in size (4.0 +/- 0.4 cm) compared with hurtle cell adenoma (2.4 +/- 0.2 cm). ...Read more
Yep! They can!: Benign neoplasms are non-cancerous growths. They can show up anywhere, kind of like moles. We tend to get more of them as we age. Usually they don't cause problems, unless they are big and pressing on something important (like your brain). It's a fancy word for a lump or bump that's not cancer. ...Read more
Ask your doctor: The doctor who removed this tumor can address this matter better. But it seems like there is a neoplasm (=cancer) located in the scalp but they are not sure what type of cancer it is, yet. Further testing might help to locate the type of cancer/ neoplasm that you have. You need to see an oncologist to get further guidance. ...Read more
Sarcoma: Lesions that arise from structures of soft tissue or bone are of mesenchymal origin. This stands in contrast to those tumors arising at glandular sites such as breast, ovary, prostate, colon, lung. The tumors of bone and soft tissue are termed sarcomas. In bone it is the osteo and chondro sarcoma. In soft tissue we find the liposarcoma (fat), fibrosarcoma (fibrous tissue origin), . ...Read more
These are sarcomas: Lesions in non glandular structures such as supportive tissue are termed sarcomas. They arise anywhere in the body but appear most often in extremities. The mass on biopsy may appear adjacent to bone or in soft tissue but described as cartilaginous or osseous and represent a soft tissue origin not connected to bone. A PET and MRI can more clearly define origin for treatment decisions. ...Read more
BAD idea: Forgive my frankess. I hope this is benign as most of these are. But if this is follicular carcinoma, you're inviting it to spread to your lungs, which will make a cure impossible. Do you want to die? ...Read more
