Trichilemmal cysts by Martin Mumblestone - Sun, 22 Nov 2015 11:21:02 EST ID:UPvbU7Ox No.53487 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

so, i have two large bumps on my head. one near the very top of my head, and the other to the central-left area. the left one is actually split into two, its one physical bump but you can feel an indent which seems to separate it into two entities. as i am aging i am experiencing hair loss and fear these (and how i brush my long hair accordingly) may be to blame. they're sensitive to touch but do not cause pain when left alone. if i had to estimate size, i would say it has a little over an inch diameter, and is raised at least a cm above my scalp.

i live in canada, ontario and want to have it removed. we get free health care but not for cosmetics. i am working at a job atm which if successful, will reward me with health benefits.

so what do i need to say to the doctor to get it removed? someone told me to just tell them they "hurt," but i feel i need to be a little more precise than that.

alternatively can anyone estimate a cost for the procedure to remove that one bump / "Trichilemmal cyst"

Just say that they hurt, the one feels like it's turning into two (which is bad) and you're afraid they may become cancerous over time. Further, they're fucking with your mental health, as they cause you to be insecure in social situations, and are starting to fear going to work should they be spotted.

I donno, just tell them to cut the fuckers out. It shouldn't take them more than an hour, and most of that is just prep.

any other feedback anyone?

what do i say when my presumably lazy walk-in doctor says my bumps are harmless and tries to downplay their existence so not to have to do any other actual work?

Prostate stimulation and Gallbladder. by Nigel Narringville - Fri, 27 Nov 2015 07:52:28 EST ID:h7NVSFdn No.53510 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I have used an aneros vice for prostate stimulation and the next day the area near where the gallbladder would be felt somewhat achey but mildly. Not even sure it was the gallbladder and never had gallbladder issues.

I don't know if there is any correlation or if it was the two benadryl that I took a night before to help me fall asleep.

Does anal sex affect IBS or the gallbladder whatsoever? I have low IGM antibodies from primary immune disorder.

My gut has been a little different since I got MRSA and was prescribed 28 days worth of Bactrim. 5 days after I used up the antibiotics, I had stomach issues for a week but things turned back to normal. I understand that Bactrim can mess with your guts pretty badly but it was required.

Can a uroligist remove a MRSA infection? by Albert Clodgewell - Thu, 26 Nov 2015 09:18:17 EST ID:XaWJWNG0 No.53501 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So I've been a MRSA carrier for about 6 months. I've had about 5+ removed at my local walk-in clinic so far. I'm in the middle of a doctor transfer and the clinic couldn't prescribe enough for a long term cleansing. 2 days ago I went in for a MRSA infection on my scrotum and they said the infection was too deep and my testicles seemed to be in too much trauma to do anything with their equipment. They insisted it would require me to be put under to remove it and I need a sonogram as both my testicles are swollen and inflamed. They wanted me to rush to the ER but that's simply something I can't financially handle at this time. Would a urologist be able to lance the infection and give a sonogram or is the ER my only real option?

Depends on where you live m8 but I don't know if urologists look at testicles. Maybe try a dermatologist?

OP here. I need a ultrasound to look for interior damage or atrophy.

What the fuck is wrong with you!? I can hardly believe that they could even let you out of the hospital. Dude. Your balls are going to fall off, and then you will die, in hours of agony until septic shock shuts your brain down and you finally die.

And btw, medical bills don't mean jack shit when you have no money. And money is fucking worthless when you're a neutered zombie.

If you do not have this treated IMMEDIATELY you are going to lose your testicles. If you do not have this treated SOON, you are going to DIE.

then go to a radiologist
but listen to >>53505
would you rather have no money and septic balls that will drop off or kill you eventually or do you want no money with healthy balls?

your choice op, i know what id choose

Can't sleep at night. by Martha Trotdock - Thu, 26 Nov 2015 03:21:33 EST ID:jtldgxRS No.53500 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So, here's the deal. I can't sleep at night, no matter what I do. I tried melatonin supplements and they don't work. I tried sleeping pills and all they do is leave me groggy as FUCK for a good chunk of the day afterwards. I do have a regular sleeping schedule though. I normally fall asleep comfortably around 5-6am and sleep well until 1-2pm. Give or take an hour or so on either side of course. At night I am very alert, aware, energetic, and quite sharp. But during the day I am sluggish and groggy unless I sleep into the afternoon.

Any ideas? simply googling "I can't sleep at night" gives a fuckload of different causes, conditions, remedies, etc. So I don't really know what's going on.

Again, I have a stable, regular sleeping schedule. But it's from early morning into the afternoon. This is playing hell with my work and college which both require me to be up and about a few hours after I usually fall asleep. And forcing myself into a "normal" sleep schedule does not work. I've tried for months with no results.

OP, what do you do at night?

Maybe you're not supposed to be asleep at those hours? Without people like you, who the fuck would keep us from being eaten should we fall asleep in the darkness?!

Fuck college, get a night job, get paid extra for being on your natural cycle, and then study on your own in the free time that you will have since you don't have to work as much to make the same wage.

Also, I was on that sleep schedule for the majority of my life. That is my natural sleep cycle and should I do anything to fuck with it, my health immediately went to shit. Though, I grew up in the south, where it's too fucking hot to be out during the day and night time was the nice time. Now, I'm awake and grumpy at 9am!... The difference though was not caused by me, it was caused by geography. I moved to a rainforest in the pacific northwest of the USA where half the year it's too overcast to know what time it is, and then the other half, it's dark at like 5pm.

So, what I'm trying to say is that there is nothing wrong with you. What's wrong is that you're forcing yourself into an unnatural rhythm by societal forces to keep you weak.

I mainly chill at home or go out to my regular bar. Or work a night shift if I'm lucky to pick one up.


Ha right, I live up north in the U.S. so it can get chilly out at night and downright cold during the winter and fall. But spring and summer nights are beautiful. I'm one of those people who actually prefer the peace and quiet of the night as well, and night time is very beautiful compared to the daytime for me.

I was thinking of just owning it, like you're suggesting. I honestly love being up at that time. And I love going on a walk around town during the "magic hour" of 3-4am when the entire town seems to be asleep aside from the odd car going by on the main roads. Everything's nice and quiet and peaceful and I can just chill and walk around with my music in a world that seems like I'm the only one there.

Allergies? Something else? by Esther Clirryshit - Wed, 25 Nov 2015 23:50:28 EST ID:Xoa0Fcxd No.53498 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So for the last 3 months I have been coughing up white to yellow to green phlem all day, erryday, and my nose has been stuffed up. My wife and I live in a 1 bedroom, tiny house with 3 cats. After the 1st month, the phlegm and mucus became brown and I got a sore throat. Went to the doc. In the examining room, all symptoms went away. Doc said bronchitis and gave me an antibiotic. Phlegm went from brown back to white/yellow/green, all day, erryday.

I don't believe I'm allergic to my cats cause my symptoms persist even when I'm at work and my cats don't come into contact with my work clothes.


Also I don't smoke (anything) and haven't for years.... :(

Your phlegm is changing colors because you're getting severely dehydrated. If you drink more water, the phlegm will become less gummy-like and your throat will be less sore. For the rest of the day, always have a glass of water or juice or tea besides you. Sip it regularly and keep your damn throat moist.

As for the cause, dude, you wouldn't had mentioned the cats if you didn't believe it was an issue. You are the one that added this information in there, as if it is relevant, and it probably is. You have THREE CATS in a one bedroom.... How do you clean this place? Are there litter boxes? Is there carpet?

Ug, get the place thoroughly clean and then buy an air filter. They help immensely in confined spaces like that. Regardless of if you have an "allergy" or not, it's not healthy to breath in that much filth that's going to get into the air from three cats and two humans in a space barely big enough for just one human. You know that each human usually sheds at least a pound if not more, SKIN, a year... and that lands where you are man, and then it gets eaten by dust mites, which then shit everywhere, and we breathe that in.

PS: Doctors give antibiotics to people who they think "will get over it", and use them as a placebo to get them to go away. Unless they did a throat swab and a culture on the flora and fauna of your throat, they brushed you off and gave you improper medical treatment. Bronchitis is NOT a diagnosis. Bronchitis is a SYMPTOM of something else. It means "Inflammation of the Bronchi"
