Alopecia areata: Is the correct spelling. Forget food and magic non-prescription stuff, and be forewarned that even what today's medicine offers may not work well. Because you're a man, you do have another option -- super-fitness. Many ultra-fit, masculine men who work out a lot and are bulked and defined shave their entire bodies by choice. This identity may turn this to a plus. Whatever you decide, good luck. ...Read more

My right breast has some thickening that I can visualy see when I lean back. It is like a hump. I have had an ultrasound and it was ok still worry?

If you're worried about the interpretation, you could always seek a second opinion from another breast expert and has him/her to read your film, or ask for a digital mammogram.

I have symptoms of peripheral vasular disease, pain in right calf and foot goes numb whenever pain is there. Pls advise, as no neuro docs in our city?

Sciatic nerve irritation.: You are probably a little young to have vascular disease. Much more likely you have some lumbar disc disease with pinching. When you pinch the nerve you may get numbness, weakness, pain or loss of proprioception. That means your foot doesn't feel quite right when you put it down. Try some low back exercises. You can find lots of low back exercise if you Google. I think you'll also find those on YouTube. If you are overweight, it will also benefit you to lose weight. ...Read more
