My father had a fistula inserted in his right upper arm in April. He has not started dialysis but has been told the fistula is not working and is considering a balloon procedure to clear it. What are the risks of this and the likelihood of success?

I still have three of four wisdom teeth. Two on my left side and the other on the top right side. I have for a second time in about ten years, my left nostril started bleeding after several hard sneezes. I got it under control the first time. And then about 24 hours later in the evening, I tried to gently blow my nose, and ended up in the Emergency room. The Dr. tried the balloon method which wouldn t stay in and ended up using a nosebleed tampon. Concerning the balloon method, he wondered if I d had any surgery done, and NO was the answer. What would cause the obstruction and the balloon method to fail?

About 6 weeks ago I experienced severe vaginal dryness and itching. I inserted some Replens but it did not help. I took a little mirror and discovered several cysts clustered together that almost completely blocked the opening of my vagina. When I spread the vaginal lips, I saw that the cysts were connected to the top of the vagina as well as the inner walls. All of the cysts were flesh colored. I went to my gynecologist, who ruled out herpes or STDs. The cysts have continued to grow. I inserted a clean finger and felt around, and the cyst(s) extend further up my vagina than my finger can reach. The top cyst now has a large black mark in the middle of it. The itchiness has pretty much disappeared, but rarely I will get a sharp pain. I understand that the cysts could be due to blocked glands, but I am concerned because they have not gone away. The gynecologist said only to watch and wait and to take sitz baths. Am I missing something? Should I go to a gynecologist oncologist?
