Question: I was diagnosed with BPH 4 years ago when I had health insurance. I have not been back for a yearly follow-up since. The very painful symptoms are back now. I have additional changes in my body now as well and I need to know if they cancer symptoms. ********* I HAVE 2 KNOTS ON MY RIGHT SHOULDER BLADE /// LARGE CIST SIZE************ LOWER BACK PAIN, mostly at awakening and at bedtime*************** LOTS OF FATIGUE****** Should I schedule a visit with a Urologist and no a Family Medicine Practice. My Family medicine Doctor will only do a PSA LAB WORK and when it tests High they will recommend me to a Urologist anyway. FYI,,, This will be a CASH PAY VISIT,,,,,,, PLEASE ADVISE

Brief Answer:
Consult your family doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking Healthcaremagic.

I am Dr.Endri Katro and I will be answering at your questions:
-According to your question to consult an urologist or the family doctor for your symptoms (backpain,the cysts on your shoulder ect) i suggest that you consult your family doctor first. I understand that after the PSA results he will send you to the urologist, but at the same time he will be able to check your shoulder,the cysts that you describe and ask for further tests and exams if needed.

The urologist might not be able to answer your question about the lumps in your shoulder.

Even if you go straight at the urologist, he will probably ask for other tests or consults for the lumps, probably a surgeon.
But if you go to the family doctor, he will know what tests and exams need to be done first for the diagnose and the treatment of the lumps, the backpain and the HBP.

Wish you good health.

Hi, I am 28 weeks pregnant with baby #2 and have been experiencing low back ache very infrequently, but for about a week or more now. The last 2 days I ve had very soft stools , and today was 2 cases of extremely soft stool/diarrhea-like. I am technically at risk for pre-term labor because baby #1 was born at 35 weeks, so I am getting a weekly injection of progesterin (?) hormone. I was also diagnosed with lymes at about 19 weeks, and have an appointment with infectious disease in one week. What I m concerned about is the new symptom of loose stools now...I just had a OB appointment one week ago, do I make another appt?

I believe I was infected with salmonella via a chicken salad sandwich on Thursday about 11am - and by 10pm I was experiencing explosive watery diarrhea and extreme chills with abdominal pain, wretching nonproductive vomiting (post Gastric Bypass 7yrs)....this continued until I had not urinated for 16 hours and had lost 14 pounds on the scale in 36 hours and was tachycardic 130bpm with a low bp 90/62...I went to ER, received 3 liters saline and urinated 50 cc, was sent home...I am now experiencing constant sweats with diarrhea slowing to every 3 hours. WBC , eisinophils below normal at er lab, other indicators of dehydration as expected...the sweats are a change - is this normal and what is the cause? or mechanism that is occuring in this infectious process?
