More info/maybe: This would be easier to answer if the tumor size and grade wear provided. In general, studies in hormone positive breast cancer have shown an advantage to 10 years of tamoxifen over 5 years. Though this cannot be extrapolated to ais, which are considered more effective than tamoxifen, this may be the case. Knowing tumor size and grade would help with prognosis. ...Read more

Can i put triple antibiotic ointment in my nose?

Can i put triple antibiotic ointment in my nose?

Ointment in nose: Hello. The topical ointment called triple antibiotic ointment should not be placed within the nasal cavity. I have seen severe inflammatory reactions within the nose after this medication was applied intranasally. The neomycin is usually the culprit. This medication is highly allergenic in some people. See your doctor who can prescribe bactroban intranasal. This should do the job. Good luck. ...Read more

Depends: Your doctor may be basing his advice on your growth chart, assuming you will stay within the same percentiles you have had all your life. This is a reasonable assumption and usually accurate. Using the calculation based on parental heights you would expect (64.5+65-5) / 2 = 62.25 or 5"2.5 inches. ...Read more

22 month old boy is 30.5 inches tall & 35 lbs. which percentile sis he in for height & weight?

See pediatrician...: With the numbers you gave, your son is about 97% for weight and 3rd% for height. I would advise that you discuss with his pediatrician to ensure that he is growing on target for his normal and to discuss a healthy toddler lifestyle (nutrition choices, drink consumption, screen time, and activity) ...Read more

Depends: An estimate using parental height gives your expected final height as 5'10.5"but you are shorter than expected on a growth chart. A simple x-ray of the left hand & wrist can be assessed for bone maturity and see how much longer you will grow. If the xray shows open growth centers you have more time to grow, if the growth centers have closed you are done. ...Read more

Can a girl grow taller in her 19?

Can a girl grow taller in her 19?

Unlikely to happen: At 19 the growth centers have likely closed so no more linear growth is expected.If you want to know for sure an x-ray of the wrist ; hand can be analysed for bone maturity ; tell if the growth centers remain open to new growth. A bone maturity more consistent with 14 would leave some room for growth. Most girls get 2.5 in or 5 cm after their first menses and stop. ...Read more

I'm 19y/o probably a late bloomer, had my first growth spurt at 15-16.Still can't grow a beard. Havnt grown since last year.Can i expect height growth?

I'm 19y/o probably a late bloomer, had my first growth spurt at 15-16.Still can't grow a beard. Havnt grown since last year.Can i expect height growth?

Depends on bone age: The potential additional length anyone can expect depends on areas in the long bones (arms, legs, fingers)called growth plates. This is where growth occurs and an active open growth plate means more growth is possible. An xray of the hands & wrists can be evaluated for bone maturity since there are many to see. If your bone maturity is average for a 19 yo you are done growing taller. ...Read more

My child got nits IV used nit lotion. But eggs are still der. Wht shal i do?

Wash them out: If you've killed the lice and nits remain there are helpful adjuncts to use. Some have success with a stout vinegar used as a wash/rinse.It loosens the glue holding the nit to the hair and helps them separate easier.Also use a nit comb, that usually comes with the nix (permethrin) or other treatment. Pickling vinegar is stronger than regular and may work faster. It can be repeated daily until clear. ...Read more

No: For some reason, all of these height questions come only from India. You can NOT make yourself grow taller. The body doesn't work that way. It is based on genetics and a lifetime of proper nutrition. At your age, you are very unlikely to grow any taller. ...Read more

Not good to obsess..: It's not good to obsess about something one can do nothing about. At age 19, girls are finished growing in height (except for a few rare cases). However, one can get a healthy amount of calcium, vitamin d, and exercise... To maintain the current height. Girls also can wear heels (not too high or risk bad ankle injuries). ...Read more

Im 57 an female w/type 2 diabetes. I've lost clos 2 100lbs. Had gastric bypass. Drs  say i wont lose anymoe  wt. What r ur thoughts?

Prob right : Most patients lose about 75-80% of excess weight with a gastric bypass. So, if you started about 120 pounds overweight, we might anticipate about 100 pounds of weight loss. Of course, it is possible to really watch calories and exercise and lose more. ...Read more
