Lipoma all over the body, severe hair fall over scalp and eyelids, have chest development. Which tests should be taken to detect the root cause?

i have lipoma all over the body and severe hair fall from past 4 yrs. when i consulted a doctor for lipoma he told that surgery is the only option and this problem is occuring due to irregular fat metabolism and digestive system. when i consulted a trichologist for hair fall he told that hair loss could be of dht(hereditary),loss of nutrition,hormonal imbalance, fungal infection . i took hair vitamin and mineral tablets from past 8 months but it was of no use so i think loss of nutrition is not the reason for my hair loss. i recently tested for thyroid hormone the result was all normal so no hormonal imbalance, i also use nizoral shampoo for fungal infection now the only thing remaining is hereditary loss. my hair fall is all over the scalp( no pattern loss), even in the eyelids. now i am planing to test for dht level to diagnose the reason for my hair problem. for my lipoma problem i have to test my digestive system and fat metabolism to stop furthur development. i also masturbate excessively like 2twice a day for nearly 8 yrs. now i have controlled that from past 1 month. i alos have a chest development( don t know whether it is due to fat or high estrogen level) now i have to test my body to find out the reason for all these problems 1. dht hormone test for hair loss 2. testosterone and estrogen levels for chest development and masturbation problem 3. digestive system and fat metabolism test for lipoma(fatty tumour) problem i have detailed all my problems so please name the tests which i have to take for my above mentioned problems

Hi welcome to HCMForum. As your prolonged explanation states that the investggation
should be foccussed at endocrinology. may be it is secondary to some thing. Investigation
should start at pitutary gland. For that i advise you to consult an endocrinologist. You
may need to take MRI for diagnosis. I hope you are satisfied with my reply. thank you.

I am female of 27 yrs of age. I am experiencing severe hair fall since last few yrs. my hair falls in bunches while washing and I see hair all over the bathroom floor as well as my dressing table. Now I can even see my scalp on the front and touch it while running my fingers through my hair. I purchased mintop 2% solution but never used it because I read online that it causes hair growth elsewhere too like face and body. And also that it has some other long term side effects. Please help me am so depressed

Good Day, I desperately need your help please. I use to have healthy long hair but that changed in the past year when I started loosing a considerable amount of hair...and I mean loads of it. Now my hairline is non-existent and my central hair area has hairless patches due to hair loss. This has been causing me a lot of stress and have no idea what to do! I have consulted a homeopathic doctor and he gave me R89...said I should take 15 drops (in my mouth) 3 time a day before meals...please advise if this is an ideal medicine and which other over the counter supplements, foods & shampoo/moisturizers can I take/use to speed up the hair loss remedy process. I am an African lady, 31y/o, with naturally afro hair (well, the little that s left of it). Also, I have been on low carbs/no sugar & salt diet and have been taking Duromines for the past year...is any of the a catalyst in this hair loss problem? Please help...this problem is starting to affect me badly. Kind Regards, Balding Anonymous

I am 59, and recently had surgery to remove a very large lipoma from my back. The surgery was done in an operating room due to the large size of the lipoma. I have a severe allergy to latex - type 1 IgE mediated with anaphylaxis, and strict latex precautions were in place. I also have severe asthma secondary to the latex allergy. I do have diabetes - type 2 insulin dependant, and I am post graves disease. I was intebated. When I was extabated, I had trouble breathing. The Anesth gave me an updraft of epinepherine, and I turned blue, and my O2 sat dropped to 70%. The epi was stoped and I recovered, but had severe chest pain. I was admitted and had the chest pain again the following morning. Evidently I showed an atypical rise in my Troponin T levels, with a negative CKMB. I also had some EKG changes. I was transferred to the large medical center, and was evaluated quite extensively - all was negative (stress echo, nuclear stress, )no angiogram was done. I was on a nitro drip and also on heparin IV. Nothing showed except this elevated troponin t level, and they discharged me without a real diagnosis after 24 hours. What do you think happened to me? Could it be related to my latex allergy? ? histamine release?? My tryptase level was 18.5 Could I be allergic to epinepherine? I also showed some fluid around the heart - ? why?
