Avatar m tn by the time i got to the er the doctor told me that my abscess was 1 inch by 3/8 of an inch big. that is pretty large for an abscess. with something like this the longer you put it off the worst it will get. hope you feel better soon.
Avatar n tn //www.webmd.com/pain-management/guide/temporomandibular-disorders. that could be it or perhaps nodules and/or an abscess located somewhere in the region in which you are experiencing pain. you also could have issues where you might grind and/or clench your teeth at night but i would think that if you are having pain consistently that perhaps it's a larger problem. hope you get it all figured out!
Avatar m tn There has not been any trauma involved, and I will admit I haven't always been the best with Dental Hygeine.
Avatar m tn ^^^^Because Google and WebMD don't scare us enough....*eyeroll* OP, I know you posted this 4 years ago, but I'm going to post here anyways just in case someone else comes across this thread. First and MOST important!!! IT'S PROBABLY NOT CANCER. You've got a better chance of hitting the lottery jackpot than you do that this is cancer. You've mentioned it pops like a zit and leaves a sore, then inevitably fills back up again.
Avatar f tn at the beginning,in last March I felt pain on my right breast, then I found a lump, went to a breast specialist, they said its an abscess and started taking biopsies, and ultrasounds, everything was sent to the lab and tested. The results were benign but no bacteria! So it was an infection with no bacteria..
Avatar f tn Have u gone onto a website like webmd to get more information? It is a good website for medical information. Please keep us informed. I will try and c if I can find anything out.
Avatar m tn Not detected. March 18th ish I had a recurrent perineal abscess that got big and ruptured on its own on 3/22.

Running a slight fever the enitre time ranged between normal and 99.7 ish. March 28th Flew back to texas non-stop. Midway through the flight started getting chills fever spiked at 101.
Avatar n tn IIt may be what I presume to be a abscess which can be further researched on the WebMd and emedicine health websites. Use Hot towels four times a day, do not press or puncture the abscess. Seek a doctor for removal or preventative antibiotics.
Avatar n tn After completing that, I finished off another antibiotic after waiting 24 hours just in case they were dangerous to combine (yes, I know I'm not supposed to do that but I checked webMD and it said it was indicated as well) called "Cefadroxil" which continued to keep it away. 3. Bam, again in January it reared its ugly face again after a week or so. I got to a (random) Urologist finally after calling _everyone_. He gave me Cipro again. It's still lingering a bit but it's waning.
Avatar n tn Your mother's lump could be many things: an abscess in a lymph node, a cyst, or some form of tumor, such as lymphoma, or related to the breast. It's really impossible to say anything that provides anything specific except to say that it needs to be diagnosed. Finding another surgeon who can deal with her sooner makes good sense. As to your own reasons to worry: until this lump is diagnosed, there's no way to say whether it's something that has a family risk.
Avatar n tn I have lost 40 lbs. I do feel a small bulge under my belly button. I've looked on Webmd for the umbilical hernia but there isn't much about in adults. Does anyone know another website?
Avatar n tn For me, I have had other problems. I have had abscess, fistula's, chronic stomach pains, headaches all day long, and joint pains. I have always believed that my life would be in the pits and I think about while laying in bed at night that the next day there will be something else. I know I don't have a mental dissorder, yet, I do have health issues that is not something I, myself, can fix on my own. I have to let it ride its course out.
211940 tn?1267884866 In October, 2007, I developed an extremely sore throat, accompanied by an abscess on my tonsil. At the same time, I found that I could not turn my head side-to-side, nor lift my arms forward, sideways, etc. The Sports Medicine doctor took x-rays, which turned out so poorly, he could not determine whether or not I had a hole in my rotator cuff. I was sent to rehab., whereupon I was told that the tissue in my upper arms was filled with knots, and that my shoulder joints were not frozen.
Avatar n tn I've taken my hand-mirror out and everything since last night after looking way too long on webmd i was convinced i had herpes. It defeinetely looks like little tiny tears, no blisters or weird colors. I used a hydro-cortisone cream because that's all I have. Any other suggestions of how to manage the symptoms througout the day? The other weird thing is (which is making me continue to question the possibility of an STD) is that this has never happened to me before.
Avatar n tn heart tests all gud, been on antibiotics fo last two weeks but to no avail, these episodes ae severe during night time, symptoms tends to lessen a little while i make myself busy wth something, Docs are having different opinions ranging from amoebiasis, peptic ulcer to subacute lung infection leading to abscess formation in chest etc. etc. ......some says drinking lot of water may help.
