My lymph nodes seem to be swollen,around the neck area. And at frist ym doctor told me that it was`nt anything I should worry about, he suggested that it be a cyst. But after visiting a neck specialistg etting an ultra sound done,he informed me that it could possibily be mono or cancer. I highly doubt it`s mono. I have shown no symptoms. I mean Ive had thgis lumps(swollen glands) for months now and they are`nt painful at all.

The lymph nodes you are describing sound suspicious and the fact that they have been enlarged for months suggest that it may be more than just reactive lymph nodes. These require further work-up and potentially a biopsy to rule out cancer such as lymphoma.

I am a 37yr old male that gets dizzy spells when i raise my arm above my head or change body positioning while sleeping or standing up!! All of it makes me have dizzy spells!! What could it be?

The most likely cause of your dizziness when changing positions is orthostatic hypotension. Orthostatic hypotension occurs when a person rises to a standing position from a lying or sitting position and is a result of falling blood pressure of 20 mm Hg systolic or 10 mm Hg diastolic with or without an increase in pulse . . . → Read More: I am a 37yr old male that gets dizzy spells when i raise my arm above my head or change body positioning while sleeping or standing up!!

My husband has recently been diagnosed with colon cancer. The cancer perforated his colon. He had surgery to remove part of his colon (approx 1.5ft). It has been 5 days since the surgery. The doctors do not seem to want to provide any information on his condition or his prognosis. In fact, they still have not even told him us what stage he is in. When he asked the doctor (who did the surgery), he was told that “the stage doesn’t matter to me (the doc), and it shouldn’t matter to you (my husband)”. He has been told that they are pretty sure they got it all. They removed many lymph nodes during the surgery. Tests on the lymph nodes came back as negative for the cancer. However, during surgery they saw that the cancer had attached itself to the abdominal wall. The cancer was removed from the abdominal wall, along with a marginal area. The marginal area was tested and cancer cells were found in that area. His liver and lungs do no show any signs of cancer. Since the doctors aren’t giving any hint as to what stage he may be in, I decided to research online. But since none of his lymph nodes tested positive, but his abdominal wall has tested positive, I am confused as to whether this is considered Stage IIIA, IIIB, IIIC, IVA, or IVB. I am fairly convinced that he is past Stage II. Please provide me with your expert opinion as to what stage he may be at. Thank you.

Colon cancer is generally staged by the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) criteria (source: Stages of Colon Cancer – National Cancer Institute). Being that the cancer has spread from his colon to the abdominal wall, he would be considered at least a Stage IIIC regardless of whether or not any lymph nodes were found . . . → Read More: My husband has recently been diagnosed with colon cancer.

i am 45yrs old and 3 months back while i was travelling and suffered bleeding between my periods…what can be its causes???

There are numerous causes for bleeding between periods.

Hormonal contraceptives, especially if you’ve recently switched to a new brand can cause spotting in between periods. It take weeks to months for your body to adapt to the new level of hormones.

Your history of hypothyroidism can also be contributing to your spotting especially if you’ve . . . → Read More: i am 45yrs old and 3 months back while i was travelling and suffered bleeding between my periods…what can be its causes???

I ripped up an old carpet in my basement and there were 9×9 tiles underneath. I Did not realize it at the time but the tiles contained 5.2 % asbestos. I had them tested after the fact. Anyway I removed the entire basement full of tiles. Many tiles popped up intact but there was some breakage. I did not notice significant dust. I am worried sick because my young kids were near where I was pulling up these tiles. What is the risk of me or a family member developing a disease from this level of exposure?

Asbestos is considered to be benign as long as the material is not friable. The United States EPA states that asbestos flooring in good condition is generally considered to be safe but the materials can become friable with age, or by sanding, grinding, or with demolition. You would need to consult an licensed contractor that . . . → Read More: I ripped up an old carpet in my basement and there were 9×9 tiles underneath.
