Bad question. 1) There is no carotid vein. 2) Angioplasty is done inside the vessels, no cutting 3) Athrectomy is the removal of plaque from an artery. 4) Embolectomy is the removal of an embolus. 5) Phlebotomy usually refers to blood drawing (using needles)

My husband just received a call about his ct lung scan. We were told they see a soft tissue prominence on the left lung. Does prominence now mean a mass in the medical world? His Dr. will be calling us back on Friday for more in-depth discussion. He has constant cough, constant cold symptoms. We started doctoring thinking it was his heart, but it looked good. Some back/chest pain, some swallowing issues.

Hi! I have a 3 year old daughter who is showing signs of ADHD such as she repeats people, has prolonged fits over 30 mins, can t sit still eating, watching tv etc. Doesn t follow directions and is always super hyper. She hates candy so i know its not that. She does have a doctors appointment set up. I was not concerned because I assumed it was her only being 3 but then her teacher at her private home day care noticed and pulled me aside to talk.

The last two days I have been experiencing buzzing in my right ear. This is also the side I have some blockage going on in carotid. Five years ago I had a mild stroke because the left carotid artery was almost completely blocked. I had surgery, and I have no residual effects of the stroke. I have kept an eye on the carotids with ultrasound every year. This ringing in the right ear is not constant, but comes & goes. It is a loud mechanical buzzing noise. Am I right in thinking it is probably due to the carotid blockage, or would you think it could be something more significant that needs further testing? Thank you.
