Can a small pigmented spot on the head of a penis be a sign of a medical problem?

Hello! I’ve been suffering from health anxiety lately, primarily focused on the skin (I’m currently on an SSRI and am in therapy). This question actually pertains to my son, who is 19 years old, and a small pigmented spot I recall seeing on the head of his penis back at an early age when he was in diapers and pull-ups. It was a very small and lightly pigmented spot resembling a freckle and the pediatrician never expressed a concern over it when I pointed it out. Unfortunately, the thought of it entered my mind again during a current flare of health anxiety, worrying about what it may look like now (for all I know it could be tiny or have disappeared). I took my son to a dermatologist for a skin screening a few months ago, but that area was never checked. For obvious reasons, it would be difficult for me to bring the topic up to my son and ask him what it looks like. I guess I’m just reaching out for any reassurances that I’m overthinking this and that having a spot in that location is not extraordinarily rare. Please don’t suggest taking him to a doctor for it to be checked, as I simply cannot bring up the topic with him and do that, and that suggestion would just heighten my anxiety. Thanks for your input and any reassurances which you may be able to provide!!

This is an ultrasound of my baby’s spine. How does the spine look to you?

This is an ultrasound of my baby’s spine. The perintologist that l see thinks it ends abruptly. What do you think it could be?

Also the baby is never in a different position during sonograms. This is the picture we always get of the end of her spine and he thinks it’s the best picture we have.

How does the spine look to you? Any advice or further questions you think I️ should ask after her birth.

I had a flu shot, I’m not sure if the flu shot made me sicker?

Last Tuesday I went to the doctors with uti symptoms. It hurt very bad to pee and there was blood in my urine. They prescribed me the antibiotics but after 4 days I was still in pain. Today I went back and they prescribed another antibiotic. As well as a medication to prevent a yeast infection. Before I left they also decided to give me a flu shot. At first, I was okay. I was drinking tons of water and so it still hurt, but not as much as before. I noticed sores on my labia as well as my anus stinging. Every time I walk or sit it stings. I went to work and after a few hours, I got a fever, chills, and a bad headache. I know this is a lot but basically, I’m wondering if I should go back to the hospital. I’m not sure if the flu shot made me sicker? Or if the painful bumps have any relation to the uti? Also I do have bad back pain. Thanks for any help.

I am urinating twice an hour, and feeling immense pressure to urinate?

Last Saturday, I had sex with my wife. I had orgasm, but did not ejaculate. I have had that problem for several months, I would have orgasm and many times, not ejaculate. However, Sat8urday, after I had orgasm, my wife masturbated me and there was a little ejaculation of sperm. Since that time, I am urinating twice an hour, and feeling immense pressure to urinate. I am currently taking Cipro and Metronidazole (diverticulitis problems in the past) for antibiotics. Been taking both since Last Saturday morning. Nothing is helping as yet.

I had a cystoscopy for a prostatic enlargement, please advise?

Hi.
I am 65 year old. I referred to the clinic for pain while urinating. I saw a drop of blood later. The urologist required a cystoscopy. The final diagnosis read “Malignant neoplasm of bladder, part unspecified 188.9”. The doctor asserts me that i have no problems with the exception of a prostatic enlargement and gave me medicine for that.
I am worried about the final diagnosis.
Can you explain this to me with some plain English?
Thanks.



I didn’t really have a period this month, could this be a sign and symptom of hiv?

My period was very spotty this month/I didn’t really have one and my period has always been regular. Could this be a sign and symptom of hiv (I’m not pregnant). I just got a yearly TB test at the hospital I work at and I never saw the LVN draw up the medicine into the syringe to inject in me. So now I’m wondering if she used a dirty needle. Three weeks after my TB test I broke out with a cold sore. I don’t know if it’s just wrong ytiming I mean I usually get cold sores maybe 1-3 times a year since I was a child. I didn’t think anything of the cold sore until my period got all goofed up. Please help! Thanks!

I am 21, do I need a Pap smear test?

Lately I have been having weird discharge and I’m worried. At first my discharge changed to being heavy and watery with a weird odor then just dry and uncomfortable meaning I stopped having a discharge. Now it heavy once again with the same odor. I did go to a doctor yesterday and was offered a Pap smear exam but because of my fears and backed out. Initially I believed I had a yeast infection so that’s what I told the doctor and because I didn’t want to do the Pap smear he just decided to give me a one dose medication for a yeast infection. However today I’m not so sure I made the right decision. I have noticed a change in my discharge since taking the pill, however when I went to the bathroom and wiped a noticed a brown streak in my discharge. I immediately start to panic and reading up on YouTube only increased my fears. I am honestly worried sick.. to the point of breaking down. I need some advice before i approach my sister. P.S My period started 14 days ago (last for 7 days). Also, noticed that I barely ever get aroused and when I do I don’t get “wet”. 21 year old virgin. I would have mentioned a lot of these things to my doctor but he was so fast paced, somewhat in a hurry that I forgot. Help me.

I have been taking Lo Loestrin Fe for about 5 months now, is my body rejecting it?

Hi. I am 25 years old and have been taking Lo Loestrin Fe for about 5 months now. Before that I had a total of 3 Nexplanons over the course of 8 years and got it removed due to bad side effects. My OB told me my body was probably just rejecting it due to the fact I had so many and wanted to put me on the pill for awhile. I have had semi-normal periods for the past 3 months or so. I took an entire pack of pills and then had an event coming up and wanted to skip my period so started my next pack and took 8 pills. I stopped the pack thinking it was time to have a period. I had unprotected sex 4 times right around the time I was supposed to be ovulating. I take my pill every day around the same time for the most part. I have now been of the pill waiting for my period to start for one week now and nothing. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative, it was one of the cheap tests though that do not give results before a missed period. Because I have skipped my period I am not sure when my expected period is supposed to start. I have a 7 year old daughter so I have been pregnant before. I am having some strange side effects though. Besides no bleeding I have had headaches on and off multiple times a day, a little bit of confusion, and diarrhea multiple times a day. My basal body temp usually falls somewhere around 97.6% and my temperature has been elevated to about 98.7% for the past 4 days now. I have had some lower back pain and neck tension but nothing severe. I also feel extremely bloated. Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated. Not sure if I should wait a little bit longer and take another pregnancy test or if maybe this is due to a hormonal imbalance since I was trying to manipulate my period. (never doing that again). I know normally any time I accidently miss a pill or I stop taking the pill I start feeling crampy and at least start spotting if not bleeding and like I said, none of that and its been a week. Thank you!

I just had a ultrasound and found that I have a uterin fibroid, need Second opinion – Gynecology?

Second opinion – Gynecology
Hello there – had some strange spotting at week 3 of my pill, which never happened before. I just had a ultrasound and found that I have a uterin fibroid of 3 cm and a cyst of 2 cm on my left ovary. I attach the scans. I have been taking the pill (Qlaira) for about 7 months (after suspending it for one year previously and taking it for two years before that) so the gynaecologist does not feel like continuing the pill is a good idea for now and suggested I stop after I complete this current pack (I have 9 days to go) – even though it might help with the shrinking and absorption of the cyst? She suggested to stop and check in 3/4 months. I was not thinking that clearly earlier with her, but is the suspension necessary because of the fibroid or because the cyst formed NOTWITHSTANDING my taking the pill so it is a “non functional/pathological” one? Is it a good “advice” to stop and check again in 3/4 months? Thanks so much!
