If near a joint (which it is ) try not to move so ask/buy a small splint. If red, pus, pain it is infected and go back to doctor. ...Read more

How should you treat a puncture wound to the heal/palm lower part of the hand?

Make sure tetanus is ok and then watch carefully. Get to a doc for increased pain. ...Read more

How can you explain the feeling of a close or open cervix?

How can you explain the feeling of a close or open cervix?

You can't actually: You will not be able to tell if your cervix is dilating or not unless you have an examination by an MD. If you happen to know what your cervix feels like due to masturbation, you might be able to feel that your cervix is softer and the cervical os is wider (the little hole is bigger), but it takes med students quite a while to learn, and I wouldn't recommend you check yourself, anyway ...Read more

I am way too conscious of my appearance. Please tell me, does the surgical treatment of mucous cyst of lip ruins your look in any way? The stitches?

Size and location: The size and location of the cyst will usually dictate the answer. Most mucous cysts are rather small and incision usually leaves little to no scars.
