Hello sir ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
At 25 yrs you are young and the habits you are having are like giving invitation to many diseases in future.Presently you are taking your chances and if you do not have any problem you don't need a medical check up immediately but if things change or you get any symptom then may be you will require it.The better option is to discontinue smoking and even rum if it is possible for you so that you remain healthy and you know HEALTH is WEALTH like every body says.If you do it right now your body can repair most of the damage caused and in later life you will be almost free of the side effects of these habits so earlier is better.
Hope the answer is helpful and not offensive.
Thanks

I had some pain in my testicle. I am married. So I went to physician for checkup. After undressing, he pressed around my testicle and checked something. Then he said there might be inflammation and he wanted to check if they pained when in use. He asked me relax and started stroking ne. A lil startled I questioned him. He said only way to check if it was still fine! So I allowed him. He did till I ejaculated. He examined my semen with hands and said I was fine except for inflammation. He have some pills for that. He asked to come for similar check after one week. Is it needed?

Problem: Erectile Dysfunction. I am 46-years old and on my 12th week of a smoking cessation program. I took Chantix the first two weeks and have been using Nicorette Lozenges on an as needed basis since. My wife also started the program with me, and both of us had been smokers for approximately 30-years. During the first four weeks, sex was no problem, and hadn't been a problem prior to quitting the cigarettes. Starting around the fifth week and up till now I can no longer maintain an erection during intercourse. The good news is that I still wake up with a pretty good erection sometimes but morning usually isn't the greatest time to wake the wife up for a romp in the hay. Everything I've read about ED and smoking runs contrary to what I am experiencing now. Could it be the Nicorrette? Why am I going through this and what can I do about it? Is it normal for someone to experience ED after they have quit smoking and how long does it last?

I have a smell of burning in my nose, a bit like cigarette smoke. It has lasted about 3 to 4 weeks, some days worst than others. I m 36, my height is 5 9 and I m about 14 stone. I don t smoke and I m never around people who smoke. Should I be worried?

Hello, I have switched over to electronic cigarettes and am experiencing something I have not read about involving them. The Juice I am using is Propylene Glycol(PG) based and ever since I have been using this I have been coughing a lot as well as coughing up a clear-like mucus from my lungs. I had a cough about a week before I purchased the electronic cigarette and thought at first that it simply has not come to pass until I decided to stop using my electronic device as I began getting headaches due to coughing so violently. The symptoms ceased momentarily, or at least to the point that I now know that the electronic cigarette's vapor is the cause(PG). Am I allergic to PG? Should I switch to Vegetable Glycerin based liquids? Or is it simply that with excess vapor in the lungs I inducing coughing? Thank you for reading.

Hi i am a smoker, between 10 and 15 a day, and i have noticed that, especially when i go to bed, i get wheezy. At 15, i am now 40, a locum told me i was asthmatic although i have never had an asthma attack in my life and take no medication. I do a physical job and excerise quite a lot and notice no breathlesness then but whilst having sex, i am afraid!!, i am breathless after a relatively short period of time. In the mornings normally after two or three cigarettes i cough up a mucus, not a huge amount, that borders between clear and light yellow in colour, are these symptoms just due to smoking or could it be something more serious, i am trying to quit!!
