abscess

Avatar n tn Has anyone experiecned this issue. It is sometimes called a subareola abscess. This is a chronic condition- I have had 3 surgeries to removed the abscess because of the pain associated with it. It is back again and my last surgery was in November. I quit smoking because that is what my one doctor to me the was the ONLY cause and that is I quit smoking it will stop them from returning 100% of the time.
Avatar n tn lobe) 4. small asites I would like to know about the consequences of this problem? What are the risk factors and how it should be treated?
Avatar f tn Can someone answer this question: How do you know you have an abscess? Do you do self-check or use the mammogram results? JoJo- My Thyroid test came back negative so I've continued to avoid soy products as much as I can which is very difficult since almost everything has soy including vitamins. There are a few multi-vitamins that do not have soy but you have to search hard. Also, Thanks for starting this forum! To All - I've continued the American Heart ***.

Avatar m tn Males can develop breast cancer, though the incidence is much lower than female breast cancer. Risk factors for the development of male breast cancer include increased exposure to estrogen, reduced androgen, history of orchitis secondary to mumps, undescended testis, testicular injury or cirrhosis of the liver, and a family history of breast cancer. I would suggest you have yourself seen by your doctor.
Avatar f tn I am 59 and no one told me about this one! The risk factors, of course, increase with age. Has anyone else dealth with this. Everything lines up for us breasts, ovaries and Bartholin's Glands. It's like a runway. Have a Merry Christmas and the beginning of another year.
Avatar m tn are fistulas more than 1 in number common??? 2: what risk factors are connected with it.
Avatar n tn My 37 yo husband (former light smoker - less than 5 cigs/day, no other risk factors) recently had a chest xray in the ER which showed what the doctor termed an "abnormally dense spot" on his lung. Dr also stated that it "didn't appear to be cancer or a nodule" but that it needed to be checked. My husband has no shorntess of breath or coughing, but is convinced its cancer (also no family history of cancer).
Avatar m tn Losing the excess pounds may also help with the sleep apnea. One of the risk factors for sleep apnea is being overweight wherein the fat deposits around the upper airway may obstruct the breathing. Avoid alcohol and certain medications such as tranquilizers and sleeping pills which can relax the muscles in the back of the throat and may interfere with breathing. Sleep on your side or abdomen rather than on your back. And keep your nasal passages open at night.
886824 tn?1253740254 MS is most likely a multifactorial condition, which means that it involves a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors. It is currently well established that MS also runs in some families. Researchers believe that there are probably a number of genes that cause susceptibility to MS as well as influence the severity and progression of the disease.

Avatar n tn That liquid like ball is edema and depending on how large it is and that it is on the throat, a drain my be necessary. As for the Cipro....there are some very serious risk factors. If your pet has any of the MANY risk factors, giving Cipro can be deadly to your dog. If your pet is under 2 years old (assuming by the weight he is a medium or large breed)....do NOT under any circumstance give Cipro. Please please take your dog to the vet so he is properly treated in a safe and humane way.
Avatar n tn Nobody knows what causes intraductal papillomas, and there are no known risk factors. The discharge may be bloody or sticky and usually occurs spontaneously from one duct only, with manipulation of your nipple. You may notice staining or spotting from the discharge on your shirt or the inside of your bra. You may also feel a small lump behind and near the edge of your nipple (areola). Your doctor may perform an ultrasound on your areola and surrounding area to check for a nodule in a duct.

Avatar n tn Tubo-ovarian abscess is an advanced form of pelvic inflammatory disease most often caused by spread of bacteria from the lower genital tract. (The most common bacterial pathogens are anaerobic.) Risk factors for pelvic inflammatory disease include those associated with increased risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease: early age of first sexual encounter, multiple sexual partners, history of sexually transmitted disease, and douching.
Avatar m tn bleeding disorders, obesity and smoking. Prior to the procedure, the attending physician usually conducts a complete physical examination and may order imaging, blood, and urine tests. Also, the anesthesia to be used and the potential risks is also discussed. It is best that you discuss the procedure with your doctor to ease any anxiety and to have a better picture of what to expect.
579258 tn?1250652943 It occurs mainly in people with weakened immune systems. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Nocardia infection is a bacterial infection that usually starts in the lungs. It then tends to spread to other organ systems -- most often the brain and the skin. It may also involve the kidneys, the joints, the heart, the eyes, and the bones. Nocardia bacteria are found in soil around the world.
Avatar m tn i lead an active physical life and would prefer not to have ongoing, multiple procedures and would be especially averse to self-catheterization 3) given that my urethra is currently strictured, but functional (i had about 1 tbsp of urinary retention prior to the cystoscopy), is there any risk that post-DVIU stricture recurrence could result in acute urinary retention? 4) any other feedback or comments would be welcome as well Thanks!
Avatar f tn On the other hand, the statistical chance your partner had HIV is exceedingly low, probably well under 1 in 1,000 -- assuming, of course, she doesn't have special risk factors (injection drug use, commercial sex work, etc). And even if she did, your risk for a single episdoe of unprotected vaginal sex was on the order of 1 in 2,000. Taken together, these two facts translate into a risk you caught HIV somewhere in the range of 1 in 1-2 million. Pretty good odds!
172826 tn?1423426556 i went to the clinic and the doc told me it was an abscess or cyst..to bathe and etc...anyways i seen my ob and told him and he said the same...then after like irght after i gave birth the ob squeezed everything out and said it shouldnt come back...maybe a week after it had come back and was swollen to the size of a lemon..on top of having stiches it hurt.. alot...anyways it ended up bursting within 5 hours of it getting sooo big...i just felt it all gush out and it was such a relief...
Avatar f tn How much confidence should I have with that result? 2. Circumcision and Hypospadias are two factors which I doubt have been studied together. While one decreases the risk of contraction, the other increases it. I am not sure how to feel about this. Can I have some input from someone more knowledgeable than me? 3. I had been suffering from an unaware perianal abscess around that time and wasn't on antibiotics. I developed a mild fever 2 days after the encounter which lasted a few days.
Avatar n tn Certain systemic diseases (oral ulceration, erythema nodosum, sacroiliitis) may also increase the risk of developing rectal ulcers. Risk: Individuals with certain psychological disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, are at higher risk of developing rectal ulcers if they practice abnormal toileting behaviors. Incidence and Prevalence: The incidence of rectal ulcer is estimated at 1 to 3 individuals per 100,000 per year (Felt-Bersma 7).
Avatar n tn Sometimes, if the skin incision site has sealed over but the infection has gained access to the deeper subcutaneous fatty tissues, pus and infection will build up underneath the skin producing a painful pus-filled swelling called an abscess. When the abscess bursts, large amounts of pus will drain out of the area. Wound infection is very uncommon in most routine desexing surgeries and most commonly occurs because of poor home care.

Avatar f tn I have chronic mastoiditis and my ENT says one of the risk factors of a mastoidectomy is that the facial nerve runs through the upper portion of the mastoid and that it doesn't happen very often, but there is a very small risk of injuring it during mastoidectomy. So ENTMD is right that it doesn't travel through the "ear", but it does go through the mastoid.
Avatar f tn I have an irrational fear that the symptoms are all psychosomatic. Although that doesn't make sense as increased weight and stress are risk factors for certain medical conditions. I hope my list doesn't resemble a novel. Thanks again.
1752640 tn?1352770994 Causes, Incidence, And Risk Factors Have you seen a Dermatologist? Boils are very common. They are generally caused by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, but they may be caused by other bacteria or fungi found on the skin's surface. Damage to the hair follicle allows these bacteria to enter deeper into the tissues of the follicle and the tissue underneath. Boils may occur in the hair follicles anywhere on the body. They are most common on the face, neck, armpit, buttocks, and thighs.
1551642 tn?1294355534 Hello all, For various reasons, I don't feel comfortable taking prednisone (sp?) or methotrexate. It's been a comparatively long time since I've had an abscess, thankfully, so I haven't been in a ton of pain in the last few months. I've been seeing Dr. Laya in Seattle (the doctor who is currently treating multiple GM cases), and while she's been very respectful of my decisions, she also would like me to try SOMETHING to see if we can kick this thing.
