I have skin in the lower back wound did not heal for two years or more blood comes out and every day I ask what treatment?

Need to see doc: In a healthy person a wound should not be open this long, if it is there is need for concern. You may have a resistant bacteria, you may have a deep infection. Any wound open that long may also need a biopsy to rule out a malignancy, like a skin cancer. Please consult a physician. A dermatologist is a good place to start. ...Read more

It is bad to wait? My left testicle is bigger then the right one , and from time to time i feel some pain to....And the left one gets hard like a rock when I do stand for a long period of time...What do you think?

Taken : Taken from mayo clinic. See link below for full information: testicle pain and swelling has a number of possible causes. The testicles are very sensitive, and even a minor injury can cause testicle pain or discomfort. Testicle pain may start in the testicle itself or in the coiled tube at the back of the testicle (epididymis). Sometimes, what seems to be testicle pain is caused by a problem that starts in the groin, abdomen or somewhere else — for example, kidney stones and some hernias may cause testicle pain. The cause of testicle pain can't always be identified. Causes of testicle pain or pain in the testicle area can include: diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage caused by diabetes) epididymitis (testicle inflammation) gangrene (specifically, a type of gangrene called fournier's gangrene) henoch-schonlein purpura (blood vessel inflammation) hydrocele (swelling of the scrotum) idiopathic testicular pain (unknown cause) inguinal hernia kidney stones mumps orchitis (inflamed testicle) retractile testicle (a testicle that pulls up inside the groin — this condition occurs in young boys) scrotal masses spermatocele (fluid buildup in the testicle) testicle injury or blow to the testicles testicular torsion (twisted testicle) testicular cancer undescended testicle (cryptorchidism) urinary tract infection varicocele (enlarged veins in the scrotum) vasectomy the combination of swelling and pain in a testicle could constitute a medical emergency and should be evaluated as soon as possible. Work with your doctor or other health care professional for an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

Good support + more: First, large breasts need good support. Make sure to buy quality bras that fit well (one may have to get them custom made). Physical therapy and appropriate exercise can help strengthen muscles, improve posture, and maintain a healthy weight. Try over-the-counter pain relievers for bad back pain. Finally, breast reduction is an option in the future, but not while the breasts are still growing. ...Read more

What does it mean when u have pain in ur ankle and it goes up to ur hip and no swelling and or bruising and had it for 2 days and very unbearable hurts to walk and lay down or sit

From : From what you are describing, you might have something called sciatica. Sciatica is a condition in which your sciatic nerve on either one or both sides of your buttocks is inpinged. The sciatic nerve does travel all the way down to your ankles and feet. It is very common for patients who are experiencing sciatica to have pain radiating down from their buittocks to their thighs to the ankles and the feet. Usually, if you have such symptoms, the best thing to do is to visit a pain management specialist or physical therapist who can provide therapy to your back in order to improve the pain. ...Read more

Good day. I have pain in my hip area when I sit or stand for a long period. What could this be....

Great question.: "Hip pain" can be felf in a few places, the hip itself, the groin, or radiating to the knee. What is oft mistaken as hip pain is radicular or nerve pain from a low back problem, and this is felt in the buttock and down the leg, NOT often in the low back like one might expect. another possibility is sciatic nerve compression. The best way to figure this out is with an exam by your primary MD. ...Read more
