I’ve had genital warts for a few months now, what can be done?

Hello, I’ve had genital warts for a few months now and have been using 100% tee tree oil on them twice a day for about a month or so. I’ve been to 2 different doctors in the last few weeks who merely confirmed that i had HPV but did not prescribe anything for the warts or suggest freezing them off.

I was diagnosed with Type A influenza with bronchial thickening, is this anything to be worried about?

Hello…I am a 50 year old female. I was diagnosed with Type A influenza three weeks ago, on December 24, 2017. I continued to have the regular flu symptoms for several weeks and was experiencing quite a bit of coughing and some chest pain. I went to an urgent care center on January 9, 2018 to follow up, at which time they completed a two view chest X-ray, and I am attaching a copy of the results. The doctor indicated that I did not have pneumonia, but prescribed azithromycin to be safe, which has helped. He said I may have had bronchitis. I just saw the chest X-ray results today and see that it mentions “bronchial thickening” which made me concerned (I suffer from health anxiety). Is this anything to be worried about? I did have a CT scan and ventilation perfusion (?) scan of my lungs back in 2005, which showed mild bronchiectasis in both lungs. I have never smoked, am in good health and have never had shortness of breath, etc. Thank you for your assistance!

I have hypertension, my Dr asked me to stop taking Aldomet and Dithiazide, please advise?

I have hypertension and am currently taking Aldomet 250 mg, Minax 50 mg, Irbesartan 300 mg, Physiotens 0.02 and 0.04 mg, Dithiazide 12.5 mg, Two to Three years ago I developed three pulmonary embolisms in my right lung, I did have a DVT in my left leg, also I had a clot in the rectus sheath due to a bleeder, the clot was the size of a baseball which has since been reabsorbed , I am on life long warfarin, varying dosage depending on INR results , which have been 2.3 – 2.9, I have some white matter on my brain which is dying, picked up by an MRI. I am seeing a Dr, I have been sent to Neurologists for dizziness, light-headedness and headaches, no Vertigo or ear problems, he said it was too much blood pressure medication. I am a male 70 years of age, 135kgs and 180cms high. I am breathless most of the time , I have sleep apnoea using a C-Pap machine with oxygen, I am also a type 2 diabetic controlled by Ezetrol 10 mg. My B/P readings have been 162/101, 175/110, 168/111, mainly in the morning, it drops during the day but not enough for my liking. My Dr asked me to stop taking the Aldomet and Dithiazide to see what my blood pressure readings would be, as I said, they are elevated. I have a home monitor and my wife is an ex nurse takes my B/P three/four times a day in different positions. I do have headaches when it is up. I would prefer to take just one tablet BD if possible. Any advice you can give me would be appreciated. Many Thanks. (—)

Experiencing painless bumps on penis, tests all negative, need second doctor opinion?

A few weeks ago, i experienced a few bumps on the glans of my penis, they had a small head to them, and within 36 hours had scabbed up. There was absolutely no pain with them or itching. They never opened up or oozed or anything. Now four weeks later they are practically healed, except for some raised skin where they used to be. I understand that this is a sensitive area and these bumps may take a little while to subside.

This is the second time this has happened. Both times I went to a clinic, and had it looked at. Neither time was the doctor able to tell me what he thinks it was. I got full std checks, including hsv, and those came back negative. In your experience, what can cause something like this to happen? Could it just be some sort of skin condition, an infection, or fungal? I just cant see to find anyone that knows, or anyone who is familiar with painless bumps on the glans of penis.

Last, Ive been experiencing tightness in my inner thighs throughout this process. I cant shake it. I’m starting to think that maybe its all mental, but my legs do feel tight. And at times i had some perineal discomfort. I appreciate you taking the time, just looking for some advice or guidance, as what Ive gotten so far has been underwhelming to say the least

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!

I was diagnosed with bacterial epididymitis cause by enterococcus faecalis?

I’ve been dealing with this problem since March. I had pain in my left testicle and lower lumbar as well as my abdomen and lower abdomen right above my groin. The pain sometimes would radiate into my leg or legs and I’ve had to buy bigger pants in just the last month.

I was diagnosed with bacterial epididymitis cause by enterococcus faecalis testing positive on 4 unine tests for it. Was put on Cipro for 7 days. I felt great on it. Towards the last day i felt NORMAL again. Then 48 hours after my last dose it all came back. My last two unrine tests have been negative but my pain has now changed and unfortunately for the worse. I still have pain in my left testicle. Lumbar pain and frequent upper flank on the back pain below my ribs. The abdominal pain is now worse and i constantly feel bloated. Theres a burning sensation now in the abdomen, penis and when i urinate which i did not feel before. Also pain in the perenium and feeling like i have to make a bowel movement. Now i also get a burning sensation in my legs and abdomen and headaches are frequent.

I havent had sex in over 3 years and my blood tests have come back negative for any stds. In fact almost all my results were good except low b12 and slightly higher than normal triglycerides which i was told some mild exercise would help. Ct scan (non contrast) reveals no abnormalities in my kidneys or any of my abdominal organs. However the ct was not done in the groin region. My urologist says it cant be my prostate but has no clue how i got a enterococcus faecalis infection. Im only 32 years old and this is ruining my life. I cant sit at my desk at a brand new job for the time i need to be. Im urinaring more frequently than before and always feel like i have to poop. I dont want to eat because that aggrivates the bloating feeling. And ive already taken a lot of days off to go to doctors and waiting for weekend only appointments is slow. I cant afford a hospital visit to just sit there and run a battery of other tests that i keep waiting 1 and 2 weeks for and then need to wait a week to go get my results.

If its not prostititis then what could it be? And ive already done cipro so now if its a deeper infection ive already exposed it to cipro. Im scheduled for q cystoscopy but im worried my urologist isnt even going to check my prostate and says i should be fine but i am far from it.

I recently got my hormone levels tested, my SHBG is above range?

Hello, I recently got my hormone levels tested (female) and all the other levels were within normal range apart from SHBG which was above range at 187 nmol/l. I have no idea how harmful or dangerous that is – my gp just reported my results as ‘normal’ (eventhough the maximum level for SHBG is 144 nmol/l?). I have a history of eating disorder and read that could contribute to SHBG level. Is my SHBG level dangerous and how can I lower it?

Had a Coloanal Anastomosis with protectomy procedure, need another PET scan?

My dad who is 55 had Coloanal Anastomosis with protectomy procedure 4 weeks back due to the malignant differential adenocarcinoma in lower 1/3rd rectum. It was not invasive and PET scan was clear for any other area.

Since the surgery, he has become very weak and not feel like eating anything. He has type-2 diabeties as well since last 3 years.
He has temporary illestomy as rectum and a part of colon has been removed, which the Surgeon said will be removed after 6-8 weeks or later depending on healing.

I am not sure if this much weakness is OK?

Also, along with the Ostomy bag on his right side, there are two holes in the left, one for catheter and another for mucus drain. 2 days back they have removed mucus drain but we see mucus leaking from that. I am not sure if that is normal or not.

As per surgeon, his wound is healing well and he should be moving around but its very difficult for him to move more than 10 mins.

Do we need to have another PET in few weeks to understand if we need Radiotherapy or Chemo ?

I am very puzzled. Im around 30 yr old man with no major illness. If possible, could you please suggest something. thanks.
