That cannot be determined without and examination but more likely non cancerous.

Hi there
You should be examined to rule out cyst,varicocele,abscess etc.An ultrasound may also be needed.

Hi, Last week, I accidentally slipped in the bathroom floor, the edge of the toilet bowl hit my left breast and my head on the wall. X-ray results were okay, however, my left breast hurt a lot, it was bruised though currently, it is somewhat lightened. My concern is a hard lump that the hit caused, will this probably be a cause of or develop into breast cancer? Thank you.

I was training in mid August for a 1/2 marathon in early Sept. I had been training all summer and had previously run 2 marathons and four 1/2 marathons. One day, I could only run 3 miles due to lower abdominal pain. I thought I had a strained hip flexor from weight room work and received physical therapy for it. It had been tight. I did manage to survive the 1/2 marathon but it was painful- both the hip flexor and the lower ab pain. I waited a week and tried jogging 3-4 miles and still the lower ab pain- mostly on the left side. 3 weeks later I was in the hospital with a 3mm. kidney stone on the left side. They said I also had 3 small ones on the right side. This was after a CT Scan. After 36 hours the pain went away and I was dismissed. I waited 2 weeks and tried running. I finished 3 miles, but again lower ab pain (just above or beside groin) on the left and middle. I had testicular cancer 11 years ago (left testicle removed plus 6 weeks of radiation). I am 60 years old, am 5' 11" tall, weigh 165 and run 4-5 miles daily or did until the past 2 months. Blood tests 3 days after getting out of the hospital were normal and the urine showed just 1-2 red cells. I was in the hospital 1:30 A.M. on a Sat. morning until noon on Sunday. I went back to work on the following Monday and feel fine, except for running. I do not know if there is still a stone that hasn't passed causing the lower left ab pain when running or some inflammation?? I have taken some antiinflammatory meds but that doesn't seem to help much. I can run through it for 3-4 miles so it's not extreme. I'd like to get back to my regular training, but it's been 2 months with the lower ab just above the grouin pain in the middle and on the left. I see my regular doctor again in 3 weeks and the urologist in Dec. for my yearly checkup from the testicular cancer. Your thoughts.???

Hello, For the last 5 and 1/2 months, I have been getting sore and burning sensations in my throat after various kinds of excersise. The more intense the excersise, the sooner the pain arrives.. For example, I get it after 8-10 minutes on the thread mill, and after 1 and 1/2 miles of biking... It this GERD (GER) or something else.....I am 55 years old and have a good medical history, except for having the same thing that Lance Armstrong had in 1986 (seminomae testicular cancer), got radiation treatments, and a clean bill of health.
