MRI of abdomen

Detailed Answer:
Hi
XXXX
Since you are having a lump next to your anus i suggest u do MRI of lower abdomen.
If the lump persist then do biopsy from lump to rule out malignancy.
For headache and fever u can take paracetamol tablets twice daily.
Hope i have answered your query

The community I live in is remote and indigenous, therefore the kids I teach have many things like boils and scabies etc. Could it be a boil or a hemerroid?Will it be alright to fly on a plane in just over 24 hours? It's a 4 hour flight. I should keep my fluids up?
