Avatar n tn We proceeded to go to the emergency room, where they told me that there was an abscess the size of an orange on the left size of my vagina that they'd have to do surgery on.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it looks like a boil or an abscess. Apply warm compresses on the lump and keep the area clean. Drainage of the boil/abscess is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head. Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription as you need to take oral antibiotics for this. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn almost like the burn you get when working a muscle out to the point of burn and then waiting 4 hours before stopping. I will not have the repair done on my vaginal wall; I watched a video on YouTube and it frightened me. How are you now? When you posted last you said there was a little improvement...what about now? Can you tell me what actually helps? It's been gradually getting worse in the last 5 years, its more unbearable all the time now. Thank you, and may you be recovering quickly.
Avatar f tn Hi! A lump just below the left hip which is painful can be an abscess (collection of pus), an infected cyst, a neurofibroma (collection of nerves and fibrous tissue) or a hair follicle infection. If it is so painful, it is unlikely to be a cancer, except may be a rare muscle cancer or a sarcoma. Please consult your PCP to evaluate these possibilities as most infective causes will need to be treated early. Take care!
Avatar f tn I got a Total hip replacement due to AVN more than 7 months ago. The prothesis is metal on metal uncemented. My X-RAY, Bone scan etc are normal. There is no loosening, no infection and X ray looks normal. I still have thigh pain. Is there a treatment. No doctor has been able to diagnose the problem.
Avatar f tn I have had chronic severe pain from the neck surgery, inflammatory arthritis and am STILL experiencing severe tailbone and SI pain despite the surgery that promised I would be pain free. UGh! Desperate is what I am. About a week and a half ago I hit my opposite hip on our counter corner....not the surgical side. It bruised up pretty good and felt like a golf ball was under my skin. It slowly spread out and became red, hot and PAINFUL. Being an RN, I thought...no biggie, cellulitis.
Avatar m tn Hi, I got an abscess on my back in between spine and the right side of the hip. It is as big as a palm size. The doctor suspected that it might be a Tuberculosis and at first I took a PPD test which was positive and then sputum test which was negative. Then the doctor advised to start the TB course therefore I started taking Ethanbutol, pyrazanamide, benedon, etc..
Avatar f tn I am experiencing pain on my left side near the abdoman area from front to back. The skin there is tender to the touch. My stomach seems to be swollen. Should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn It felt like my hip was on fire as soon as the nurse stuck it in my hip and has hurt me everyday since. Now I have low back pain AND hip pain. I have to take neurontin now on top of the pain/antiflammitory pills. Has anyone else out there experienced anything like this? It has been almost a year since I got the shot and I'm still hurting. I'm getting worried because the pain is starting to travel down my right leg.
Avatar n tn I've started putting some topical anti biotic cream on the strange bite on my hip, in case that's the cause the infection. The lymph node has gone down in size and is no longer tender to the touch, although the area around it is. Any advice would be soooooo appreciated. This is really bugging me!
363110 tn?1340924019 My in-laws recently put their rottweiler down (for an abscess/tumor thing). They're notorious for having hip issues and they don't live as long as other breeds, so tell your mom not to fret or blame herself. Rotts usually live around 8-10 years so Coco definitely lived many, many good years for their breed!
Avatar n tn i have a constant slightly minor pain on my left side about 5 inches below my ribs, deep breathing makes it hurt, started after i ate and have had this for a full 24hrs any ideas should i be worried
Avatar f tn Well I had 2 hernias repaired, umbilical & femoral both on the same day, 2/3 days after I was walking around feeling much better, day 5 I noticed the hard lump round my frmoral repair was getting bigger but thought its no where to swell like my belly so brushed it aside. Day 7 pain getting worse how could this b, the cut looks clean no redness just a swollen lump underneath I was struggling to sit up & walk something not right.
Avatar f tn Anyone out there take ultram/tramadol? This drug has turned me into a tramadol prisoner. I am having a hard time stopping and I know I need to . I have taken this for a long time. First, I was prescribed this med and then I found other ways to get it. Knowbody knows I take it as much as I do. Anyone....have some advice?
Avatar f tn I had skin-to-skin genital contact (no sex, but everything but that -- including him giving me oral) with a guy on Aug. 13th. On Aug. 22nd, I first started feeling extremely itchy on my vaginal lips and around the entrance to my anus. This itchiness increased to the point that it was unbearable. During that time, I tried taking yeast infection meds, but that didn't work. On Aug. 29th, I noticed 2 large bumps under the skin near my anus.
Avatar n tn Wow your symptoms sound exactly like mine, i had to do a double take to make sure that it wasnt my post. I have a lump on the bottom rib on the left side under my breast. I had it checked out at docs and it feels like bone matter and doesnt move at all it is firmly stuck. I only noticed it since i had my first child. It seems like it could be scar tissue from when i cracked the rib years ago when i had a really bad cough (believe it or not!!).
Avatar f tn I have a very large mass on my labia majora pushing up into my mons pubis?! It’s agony and about the size of a walnut. I have pain radiating up over my mons pubis and down into the left part of my throwing... I also have a rare disease called Behcet’s, Behcet’s can cause lesions and sores on your genitals but what ever this ‘walnut’ is isn’t like any lesion I’ve had before. I can’t sit and walking is uncomfortable..
579258 tn?1250652943 Seems the original abscess has 2 outlying areas that created their own little pockets that had to be dealt with today ... along with the one on the hip that has been trying to do something. Back to the ER with a pretty good idea of what was going to be done. Yep .. I was right .. the doctor tried to aspirate all 3 areas and was successful with the one on the hip and again sent it to culture. The lower abdominal one he was partially successful on and the upper one he was not.
Avatar n tn and have seen many different locations for an abscess on the body and i have to say that the groin area is the most painful and most re-occuring location. I have assisted both Dr.s and P.A.s in lancing(making a small cut into the head of the abscess to release the pus) these painful abscesses. Here's the thing....if you've gotten one before----you're more prone to getting them again....
Avatar n tn and may include surgical drainage of abscess, immobilization of the spine region by splintage, intramedullary hip screw/ rod to promote bone healing, hemiarthroplasty or spinal fusion etc. Management is case specific and you may like to discuss the possible options in detail with your orthopedician. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn The 2-3 welts on my waist/hip bone are not going anywhere... New itchy bumps are appearing on my buttocks. Why would allergic contact dermatitis appear as little hand blisters, welts and bumps on legs/thighs and pimply bumps on penis/scrotum? ****, I'm going mad...
Avatar n tn after two injections one on left hand and other on the hip region, now there is no pain. What is the reason of right scrotum pain There is no abnormality in Ultra sound scan and urine test?
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the forum! This painful lump could be (hair follicle infection), or an abscess. An infected cyst is also a possibility. It can also be a neurofibroma (collection of nerve and fibrous tissue). It can also be a swollen lymph node. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. Please consult a doctor. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
579258 tn?1250652943 The previous session had let the upper abscess be packed twice so he felt it was enough. He worked on the lower abscess and while painful, it was most tolerable. The doctor told me he did not cause this .. and I'm still wondering about that comment. After that, he ordered a small dose of morphine that was given in my hip, I was bandaged and came home. The pain continued in the upper abscess, despite the pain med and shot .. and additional pain meds at 3:00 am.

Avatar m tn In month of Sep 2007 she got abscess and surgery got done to drain abscess and a hole was left to drain the further formation, but continuously she was mentioning about the pain in Hip joints and Lumber spine area, but currently she is having extreme pain in just mention areas.
Avatar n tn Small pocket of fluid within the dependent portion of the subcutaneous tissues lower back and upper pelvis as well as along the hip flanks.
