Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for this precision.


It means this might have been a simple contusion. If the booth in someways prevented free flow of blood around the leg, this is the most likely reason why. However, I will await to see the image and interpret before making any conclusions.

Until then, I wish her well.

Hello, I was recently bit by a pitbull on my right breast . His teeth broke my skin at the top of my breast and at the bottom I have a small hole. I noticed that I have green and red streaks around the outside of the bite and I found what feels like a knot at the bottom of my breast. I did not seek medical attention, but I do clean and take care of it everyday. Should I be worried ?

Can you explain in simple english exactly what the following MRI report means. Reference a knee injury The knee joint anatomy is well visualised. There is a small focus of altered signal shown in the subarticular region of the lateral femoral condyle indicating a shallow focal depressed / contusion type injury with surrounding bone marrow oedema. There is no evidence of a discreet fracture. The remainder of the visualised skeleton shows normal MRI signal. There is altered linear signal shown in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus indicating an undisplaced medial tear. There is also a short linear altered signal shown anteriorly in the lateral meniscus indicating either degeneration or a small undisplaced tear. Otherwise the lateral meniscus shows normal MRI signal.

I fell three days ago and got a large bump on my forehead and little cut. The bump has went down but Now my left eye is swollen and a pool of blood has collected in the corner of my eye and formed a bump. Does this need to be drained by a doctor to go away?

Female, age 42 no history of injury or illness prior to fall: I fell off a ladder five days ago. I fell about five feet and landed on my back and also hit the back of my head , landing on a wooden deck. I did not lose consciousness. My lower back is sore and bruised but as of yesterday, my chest has begun to hurt and it hurts to take a deep breath . The motion to remove my shirt is also quite painful. It hurts more now than it did immediately after the fall. The pain is worse today than yesterday.
