My doctor says I have a dermoid tumor made out of teeth and hair and stuff. What's gonna happen?

MRI, Removal, Biopsy: First an ultrasound, MRI or ct scan will clarify the situation. Could be a mature teratoma, depending on location. I have seen them in the nasal area, although they are found in other areas it may need to be removed by a surgeon and biopsied by an oncologist. ...Read more

What could cause my teeth to be senstive and my hair to break off?

What could cause my teeth to be senstive and my hair to break off?

Regarding your teeth: I am a dentist so i won't comment on problems with your hair. I could list dozens of things that could cause your teeth to be sensitive. Doing that won't help you in any way. A visit to your dentist, however, will. I suspect the two issues that you mentioned are not related. You will also have to see a physician, as a physician can't diagnose or treat you dental problem. ...Read more

What would cause my hair, teeth and tongue to itch ?

What would cause my hair, teeth and tongue to itch ?

Allergic reaction: Itching is typically due to a local irriation or a allergic reaction. The allergic reaction can be topical (on the skin) or it can be more systemic. Involving the tongue and the hair, it is more likely systemic reaction to something in your environment. Does it occur in certain situations or certain places?

See your dentist: At 9 yrs old, missing teeth is a normal transition. A dentist can do a complete exam and tell you if she was bone missing teeth. If that is the case you may then want to see an endocrinologist for links with premature aging. ...Read more

Addicted to just eating then purging it all out. My teeth have became really sensitive and my hair is falling out too. Is this serious?

Addicted to just eating then purging it all out. My teeth have became really sensitive and my hair is falling out too. Is this serious?

Yes it is: The acid from your stomach is wearing off the enamel on your teeth. You are also likely becoming vitamin and mineral deficient which would result in the hair loss. Please see your family doctor for a complete physicalexam and laboratory workup and then get referred to an eating disorder specialist as soon as possible. Best wishes. ...Read more

Vague: I would possibly think that it has something to do with the sinus, if an upper posterior tooth. Or a minute fracture in the enamel. Did your dentist run temperature and percussion (tapping on the tooth) tests? I would possibly get another opinion or see a root canal specialist. ...Read more
