Hello dear,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
I have read your query and understood your concern.

As per details, it may or may not be genital warts. I would like to know the following details :
1 ) are these bumps itchy/ painful or asymptomatic?
2) any history of similar lesions before ?
3) any history of warts before?

Kindly reply to my questions and attach a pic of the lesions so that I can actually visualise it and help you to my best.

Brief Answer:
molluscum contagiosum is the most likely possibili

Detailed Answer:
I have seen the attached pics. Thanks for attaching the pics.

It seems that you are suffering from a condition called molluscum contagiosum.
it is a viral infection of skin leading to formation of pearly white raised eruptions with central indentation with or without erythematous base.

The best treatment for this is removal of the molluscum bodies by needle extirpation by an expert dermatologist.

I will advice you to visit your dermatologist at the earliest and discuss this with him/ her. I am sure he/ she will agree with my opinion.
Good luck.

I was having a dull throbing pain in my lower left back for a few weeks it would sometimes make me feel nauseas.
Thin started to feel pain in my left side and lower left abdominal area as well as testicles. I thought it might be kidney stones so I went to the doctor and they checked for blood in my urine. There was no blood so I had an ultra sound of the spleen done and it came back slightly enlarged. I was then sent for a blood test and was told I have mono. I am 33 years old. I havent had any symptoms of feeling tired but still get sharp pains in my sides occasionally pain in my scrotum and abdomen. I have also been feeling bloated like my stomach is strechd out does this seem like mono. I will also feel a dull throbbing pain in my upper thighs occasionally.

i am a 250lb, 6'8", 37yr old male with high blood pressure who just had intense sex with my 23yr old girlfriend of 2 years, and after sex i had a little blood coming out the head of my penis. I used the bathroom to "clean the system" and there was blood. Not to mention my right side of my stomach down to my scrotum is hurting bad! there is a buldging vein on my scrotum where the pain is... What should i do???

Hi, I am a 33 Year Hindu MALE. From last 12 years, My testicles always hangs in the scrotum like balls very loosely and they are never tight. I always feel that they will be heart while I drive a Bike or Run, etc.
Earlier, they were perfectly alright and tight. About 12 years back, I started to have nocto-urinal emmisions (night-falls), every week. After some months, there were some filling of itching over the scrotum, I used to make itching by hand, many times to remove itching. After few months, I don't know what happened, testicle balls hangs all the time in the scrotum and are very loose since then. I feel Itching even now and then and I use to itch around the scrotum by hand and itching is gone.
I still have nocto-urinal emmisions (night-falls), after 15 days or 1 month. I even masturbate, sometimes, so that I could not have nocto-urinal emmisions (night-falls). I feel ashamed on it. When I have night-falls, I become awake just after that and can not easily fall asleep for another 1-2 Hrs., and all cloth become wet. I want to get rid of all these things.
I am very much worried about testicle balls always hanging in the scrotum and I never feel tightness in the testicles and scrotum. I am also worried about night-falls (noct-urinal emissions).
Is all this OK or something wrong?
I am still unmarried and want to marry very soon, but worried about wether I will be able to perform sexual activity satisfactorily or not? I am very concerned about it. I have never consulted any doctor or anybody for this problem.
Please help me or suggest me, accordingly.
In hope of quick response.

Can testicular torsion cause LOW grade pain?

doctor1 MD

Ok, I asked about this yesterday in the main forum. After thinking about it and being a little more clear headed, I decided to put it here in the "ask a specialist." Most of my question yesterday went unanswered. What was answered was very short...

I was diagnosed with intermittent testicular torsion 3 years ago and had orchiopexy performed with non absorbable sutures. Before the surgery my testicle would be backwards (180 degrees) 90% of the time or more and I had pain every day from it....
