ENT Specialist 's  Response
1. Is your dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing) only with solid food or with water and liquids, too?
2. Do you get choking, vomiting or coughing while swallowing?
3. Is there any change in voice or breathlessness?
4. Was the bone growth diagnosed on an X-ray? If so, what was the detailed report?
5. I recommend a Barium Swallow Study.

Hello, I m a 30 yo Caucasian female with a pea sized lump over the right side of my hyoid bone. It s been there for several years, it gets sore and difficult to swallow food at times. I can move the hyoid back and forth. I can feel it grind but the pain subsides afterwards. Feels like it s rubbing and caught on cartilage. Is this something I should be concerned about? The doctor said it was fine, but no one else I know has this issue..? They tested my thyroid and TSH levels, and all came back normal. Chem profile 2 and CBC also have come back normal. No X-Rays or anything else has been done to determine what it is. It has not grown, it s just irritating and it s a bit concerning that no one else has it, and it won t go away.

I have a lump about the size of a nickel under the skin next to my left cheek bone. It started out about the size of a pea when I first noticed it and has grown a lot over the last week or so. I had a similar lump on the back of my head about six months ago but the doctor I saw wasn t even 100% sure what it was, regardless he cut it open and squeezed out whatever was in there. This did not help as it continued to grow back numerous times. I ve heard it could be staph infection or a cyst but I would like to have an idea of what it is before I go back to the doctor here

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.

Yes, I have a 13 yr old that has been vomiting and has had constipated/diarrhea for a month now. She has been seen by her physician and was prescribed Prilosec and miralax. She appears to be full of stool ( according to her x-ray). She is still having dull stabbing pain in her stomach and is still vomiting daily. She expresses vomiting is not always with nausea. I hope she will not need an endoscopy. I am wondering if it s GERD or IBS. Thanks for your response.

Dear Dr, I am 30 years Male. I had productive cough in morning for last 2 months and I was suffering from sinusitis also. The sputum was green. Now the cough is gone and only sinusitis remains, no that much sputum. I done a chest x-ray last week which came normal. However doctor told a elevation in Diaphragm and enlagement of heart. What will be the reason of this?. Active Pulmonoray TB not there, but will it be Miliary TB symptom or Amoebic Liver Abscess or anything else?? Please advice me for the next step

Hi there. I am a 35 year old female 5'7 155 lbs with a 7 month old baby delivered by cesarean. I have had shortness of breath that worsens with physical exertion since the last month of my pregnancy but am otherwise in good health. The last 2 months it has been getting progressively worse to the point where I have to catch my breath sometimes in conversation. I am taking domperidone to increase my breastmilk production and have been for 2 months. I have been to the ER where I have had an ECG, ct scan, x-ray and bloodwork, as well as a pulmonary function test. All results were within normal ranges except my oxygen levels in my blood were low - however the test was taken peripherally, not through a central line. Also, my resting heart rate was 118, and when I did a stress test, within 2 minutes my heart rate was at 200. They are sending me for an echocardiogram next. Do you think this could be adult onset asthma or a reaction to domperidone or is it my heart?
