i have had cancer removed from my bladder on dec 18,2013. the cancer was located in the upper part of the bladder ,mostly around the drainage from the right kidney. i am now experiencing pain in the area of the kidney? .is it possible that the cancer originated from the kidney?can a cat scan or an mri determine this ?

I had a pacemaker inserted 2 1/2 weeks ago. This week 3 hours after my wound check visit my incision became red with multiple small red raised bumps scattered around the incision extending out about 2 inches from the incision.

Hello
Welcome to Health care magic.

I reviewed your history.
Preauricular abscess indicates infection and requires treatment by the use of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

The marble like swelling may be a lymph node and the drainage in your throat maybe due to a sinus infection.
