The tests wil not pain you. They are for your benefit. It wil be like  a pin prick. within seconds it wil be fine. The required amount of blood will be taken and then the needle removed.

Hello , im a 16 year old African American Male, and i dont know whats wrong with me. About 3 years ago, i had a pain in my left testicle , mostly in the testicular cord, but it still was a pain i was worried about. I remember when i was in the shower and i hit it downwards by accident and there was a really sharp pain there. The pain came and went then me and my mom went to the doctors and they asked if the pain was occurring at the moment and i said no so they said it was ok. But 3 years later, and i havent had a check up with a doctor since then the pain has come back. But in my right testicle. I m really worried simply because i fear i may have cancer and it may be too late to try and treat it. It may be stress because 2 days after the check up i had with the doctors, my mother passed away. But the pain came on September 3rd around 12am. It was baring, but it was really uncomfortable. I had trouble falling asleep I also had pain in the two sides of the ribs. Now being 20 days later, the pain has went away but its still there sometimes. Now i have a pain in my chest, under my breast , it feels like i cramp , and when i inhale deeply i can feel it worst also when i cough. Also there was in discomfort in my pelvis area and lower abdomen. Please help me, i m scared for my life.

9 year old throwing up then, 1 =2 days later fever, then starts agian 3 weeks later Brief background, my son in kindergarten had gallbladder removed. went to CHOP and they ran a bunch of blood tests, did ct/ultrasounds etc. found no cause but removed the gall bladder he had stones and had been vomiting violently off and on for several weeks. Now he is 9. Last year he had pains and issues with stomach pains. TOok him to a ped. gastroentinologist and they said it was due to constipation, so we watched his diet and things seemed to get better as long as we kept him regular THen this Oc.t he got strep (which he seemed to get at least 2=3 times last year also). starts wtih he will throw up, next day has strep and fever, but this year the fever lasts longer and it seems to take longer for teh antibiotics to work. THen after it clears up he gets it again, same thing...throws up, next day fevre, then to dr. they treat him with antibiotics...the last 2 times they didn t test him for strep and he seemed to develop more of a sinus infection and actually threw up mucus, we put him on sudafed and antibiotics and it seemed to be ok. We had him tested to see if he is a carrier for strep and it was negative, but now again he is throwing up, no fever yesterday and now today a fever....this will be 3rd time since Jan. that this is happening, it does not seem normal! I am scared to death it is leukemia or something....I don t kwow waht to do, wll also complain his head hurts. Now the kids at school are all sick with very similiar things, upper respiratory, stomach bugs as well, but he seems to get everything. My other kids have also been sick more this year but his seems to always be the same thing...stomach, headache then fever, then strep.....I want to get a full blood work and ultrasounds done...but I am so afraid also...I am a mess!!!

My mother had quintuple bypass in 2010 and she has burning pains around her scare especailly at night. Sometimes it is so bad it keeps her up at night. That area is very sensitive to the touch. When clothes rub she is almost in tears it hurts and burns so bad. The burning is not on top of her chest it is inside her skin . She also wakes up some mornings feeling like she slept with a brick on her chest all night. Her chest feels heavy and hurts. It has been 1 1/2 yrs since her surgery , I would think she would be healed by nnow. Why does she continue to have these issues.

I have a belly button piercing and I had changed it to another ring. The ring really irritated my belly button and caused it to be red. I took it out and cleaned it and put polysporn on it and put the previous cleaned ring back in. Though I have been cleaning it every day with hydrogen peroxide and polysporn now the inside of my belly button has a lot of white bumps and is red and itches

I got the nexplanon implant two-three weeks ago. The skin around it is yellow bumpy itchy and red. My gp said she didnt know what this was and I should moisturise it. Today I noticed the viens on my arms being very prominent, normally my viens cannot be seen and doctors find them very hard to find. Could this be a side effect of the implant? Thank you.

Hello, my name is kaitlyn! I got the birth control implant, in January I believe. (2014) it is 4 months later and it is very sore, nothing I can t handle. Where my doctor inserted it is turning kind of a red color with a white bump on it. The bump looks kind of like a zit, so therefor I tried to pop it. When I touch the bump it is very hard and feels like it s the end of the implant poking through. But the end of the implant is tiny bit above where it feels like it s poking out. Any ideas on what this is?
