Question: Hi,

I have an absolute horrible headache for three days now. Regular doses of Tylenol do not help in the slightest. There is a very tender bump slightly above and back of my left temple. Should I be concerned? Or get it checked out?

Brief Answer:
Get it checked out

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

If regular Tylenol does not bring in relief it is better to get this examined by doctor. I suggest to stop using Tylenol as it can give in rebound headache.

You seem to be describing about cyst? Lymph nodes are not found here on the temple.

It is better examined by doctor than leaving it alone.

Hi - I just tasted blood in my mouth, looked in and the right tonsil is a cut and slight blood. Looks like maybe very very small yellow or some spots on that tonsil as well. I've been having sinus drainage I think and allergy issues. No inflamed lymph nodes though. I'm concerned about the cut and blood though.

I have tenderness -similar to a very tender bruise under my LEFT (not right), breast, and it extends to under my left arm (cancer in lymph nodes?! -hope not). I also got some shooting pains in that area yesterday but today they are gone. I don't feel the tightness of chest described as signs of a heart attack - just the shooting pain that's pretty much gone and the extreme tenderness that persists. I should also add that it feel like there's a kind of numbness all around the left shoulder blade -skin has totally duller sense of feeling than anywhere else. Bad news -I'm a long term smoker. My guess is this is an inflammatory repsonse to plaque buildup in my heart valves/arteries. Whta do you think I should do, (besides not smoking)?
