Brief Answer:
Advised to see ENT specialist

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for reply.
The redness is due to infection in your pharyngeal tissues(posterior throat).Please see your ENT specialist and get antibiotics prescribed.

Secondly it appears to be recurrent in nature and thus should be treated by antibiotics.Once healed the scar tissue will automatically disappear.
Meanwhile you can do warm saline rinses twice daily.

Please let me know for further doubts.
Thanks.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
Chronic pharyngitis

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for reply.

I do not think you require any test presently.Please see your ENT specialist and start taking antibiotics upon consultation.Complete the antibiotic course and look for results.It should regress completely.

In case if you do not find any changes in the symptoms then definitely you should go for biopsy else not required.

Avoid All sorts of habits and lead stress free life.
Take nutritious diet and plenty of fluids,reduce spice intake for time being.
This should help.

For any further doubts,please let me know.
Thanks.
Take care.

Thanks I have checked with three dentists. One is saying that it is a cheek bite due to stress and tension. The second dentist is saying that wisdom tooth is slowly developing. The third one is saying that is an infection due to lack of nutrition. I have also checked with a ENT specialist. He is saying it is nothing but an ulcer. I am really worried pls help me. Pls check my picture once again. I am really worried.

Brief Answer:
Antibiotics prescribed

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome.
Thanks for reply.

I have, very carefully observed the image that you have sent.It shows signs of inflammation.That why I told you to visit ENT specialist.

Be sure it is not cheek bite. Rarely it could be due to erupting wisdom teeth.So even that requires a course of antibiotics.Please take that and see the results.Also do symptomatic treatment like warm saline rinses and use mouth washes.This will help.

Any test or biopsy is required only if antibiotics fails to treat a lesion.
so please go and see once for second opinion.

Stress aggravates many hormones in our body and leads to disaster.Therefore please do not be worried and Please do as per advised.It can be treated very well.

Hope it helps.Please let me know for further doubts.
Thanks.
Take care.

have blood and mucus from rectum along with intermittent diarhea or lose stools. Cramping goes along with it. I have had an upper and lower endoscopy with a Celiac disease biopsy. Everything was clear and my colon was not inflamed. The GI dr. said it was a bowel functioning disorder. Is that what IBS is? What do you think? I know I have hemorroids at times as well.

My father, who is 79 yrs old and has a quite healthy life, has recently developed some difficulties in swallowing food for around 5-6 months. We had consulted Doctor in a well known Hospital in Delhi and we got endoscopy done which showed a thickening of esophagus wall and the Doctor advised endoscopic biopsy under anesthesia, which could not be completed by the concerned department as the biopsy was not possible from that angle. Now the Doctor had given an option of PET scanning or DL endoscopy and BPOPSY(GA). Meanwhile he prescribed Romilast, which did helped my father while eating food. However, we are not longer sure whether we should go ahead with it, as so far it has been an expensive wild goose chase without any conclusive outcome. We took a second opinion from Lok Nayak Hospital, where a Barium swallow test was done and the report says (R) pyriform sinus(l) lat. aspect of esophagus likely due to damage The Doctor advised that there is nothing to be worried about and it was an age related problem where the esophagus loses its flexibility and becomes stiff and we can continue with the Romilast tabs. I am confused as to what is to be done and Dad is also worried with anxiety as we recently lost my mother with nasopharyingeal carcinoma after a seven year battle with the disease and the sufferings of my mom is still quite fresh in our minds. However, he does not want any treatment, if it turns out to be cancer. Please advise as to which course of action will be better

PELVIC ULTRASOUND: I had a biopsy last Thursday how long do you have to edit before you resume intercourse? What does of this means? HISTORY48 years female : Postmenopausal bleeding Comparison: 4-28-14 pelvic ultrasound Transabdominal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals a retroflexed uterus measuring 11.0 x 5.2 x 4.6 cm. Transvaginal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals several nabothian cysts in the cervix. The endometrial stripe is heterogeneous and exhibits a maximum thickness of 11 mm which is abnormally thickened for a postmenopausal female not on hormone replacement therapy. The uterine myometrium is diffusely heterogeneous, raising the possibility of adenomyosis. Multiple subcentimeter cystic spaces are noted in the endometrium. Neoplasia cannot be excluded. A small amount of free fluid is visible in the pelvis. A posterior, intramural fibroid measures 0.8 x 0.8 x 0.7 cm. The right ovary measures 3.0 x 3.0 x 1.4 cm. A hypoechoic lesion in the right adnexa, measuring 2.2 x 2.0 x 1.0 cm is most suggestive of a paraovarian cyst. The left ovary measures 4.4 x 2.1 x 1.9 cm and contains a 0.8 x 0.7 x 0.7 hypoechoic lesion with an echogenic rim; this lesion is not significantly changed from the prior exam. IMPRESSION: 1. Thickened endometrial stripe containing numerous subcentimeter cystic spaces; neoplasia cannot be excluded. Further evaluation with endometrial biopsy or sonohysterography should be considered. 2. Hypoechoic lesion previously noted in the right ovary is not evident on the current exam. 2. Subcentimeter, hypoechoic lesion in the left ovary which exhibits an echogenic rim is not significantly changed from 4-28-14. A similar lesion was noted on a 10-30-13 pelvic ultrasound,

Biopsy said CD 79A and Lambda were strongly positive, CD 138, Cd 3 and Kappa were focally positive in a small number of cells, CD 20 was negative. Radiation therapy scheduled for tomorrow was put off so I could get another biopsy. MRI, PET, CT scans bone marrow test show no cancer cells anywhere. The growth in my gum was painful and swollen when I got my first biopsy, but how it only looks different , is not swollen and without pain. I am taking Keppra to prevent seizures, have started prilosec 6 days ago to reduce GERD. I am a 78 year old male. I am trying to make an appointment with an endocronologist. Heart and many other tests are normal Should I be doing anything else? T3 and other blood test results have not arrived yet. Protein electrophoresis shows polyclonal gammopathy.
