So wens. My hCG level was 148 n fri it was517 bright red spotting n I passed 3-4 tiny tiny blood clots size of a pen mark is this normal no pain?
Maybe, but...: Just from the information presented, you can't be 100% sure. Early in pregnancy, HCG levels are expected to double every 2 days, so that looks good; any bleeding, anyhow, is cause for some concern. Contact your dr. To discuss your problems, and if the bleeding worsens go to the er. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a pilar cyst and I know the best thing is too remove it but is it fine if I just leave it there. Is there any risk? Can it turn malignant?
No risk: Remove it if inflamed, painful, ugly, or just because you hate it. NEVER malignant. Perfectly safe to ignore it. It is tax-free. Exactly where is it? Size? Tender? If punctured and drained, it will grow back. Removal is best if the entire capsule is delivered intact. ...Read more

I have a pilar cyst the back of my head and for 10 year it has been no big deal but the last 3 day it has become sore headaches like got a pulse?
? occipital pinching: A cyst on the back of the head can swell and contact a multitude of nerves and blood vessels in the posterior neck. One of the common events is that the cyst pushes on the occipital nerve root (which has nerves running up and over the head to the forehead) and the adjacent occipital artery. This can cause the exact symptoms you have having. If not improved in a day or so, see your PCP. ...Read more
Doctor tried to remove pilar cyst on head yesterday, got what he could, put in two stitches, how do I care for this wound, I am not on an antibiotic.
Had a Pilar Cyst removed December 29th on front of my head. My forehead and eye area are very swollen and my eyes are black and blue. Is this normal?
Not unusual: This is due to blood seeping down under the skin of the forehead. It looks bad but it is harmless and should settle down in 7-10 days. I am sure your operating surgeon would be happy to see you again if the swelling of the eyes does not settle down in 2-3 days. ...Read more

The most common condition that causes heel pain is known as plantar fasciitis. It occurs when there is inflammation at this dense connective tissue band on the bottom of the heel that is actually a continuation of the Achilles tendon. It is usually aggravated by excessive foot pronation or flattening of the foot down to the ground especially on a hard surface.
It is often times responsive to wearing good supportive shoes, performing stretching exercises to stretch the planter fascia and the Achilles tendon, ice massage for 10 to 15 minutes several times a day, anti-inflammatory medication, and shoe inserts either over-the-counter type for custom made by a sports podiatrist. ...Read more

Different scents to: That part of the body generally means you have some bacterial overgrowth that is causing the odor. Try to take some cranberry juice for a few days to see if the bladder is the source of your odor, as bacterial growth in the bladder can eventually lead to an infection. If it does not do anything, then consider using a mild solution with some sodium bicarbonate to wash your vagina. ...Read more
I cut my hand with a kitchen knifecame down with a sore throat went to doctor diagnosed with strep today numbness on face and sore jaw/neck wen back was given stronger meds is this correct diagnosis?
Chuckle: Difficult to imagine the correlation of the events. The strep should have been diagnosed as high probability by lab or by exam with throat exudate (pus) and proper medicine given. There is no such thing as stronger medicine but there is proper medicine by sensitivity. I am sure you are thinking of tetanus. I think part of the problem is anxiety. Relax a little. ...Read more
