I am a nineteen year old female. I have one blister in my mouth on the right anterior pillar. It hurts to swallow. What could be the cause of this? I have no other symptoms and I have never had this happen before. I woke up two days ago with pain in my throat.

I have not done anything treat the pain except eat a tablespoon of honey before going to sleep.

My mom is 65 and recently had cataract surgery performed with a Toric IOL lens implanted. Her vision was blurry after and had to have the posterior capsulotomy surgery done 6 weeks after. Her vision is still blurry and she is now being sent to Will’s Eye in Philadelphia. Do you have any suggestions on what the problem could be?

It is difficult to determine the cause of her blurry vision without a physical exam or more detailed knowledge of the operations she’s had. However, Wills Eye Institute in Philadelphia is one of the premier eye hospitals in the country.

I had an operation one year ago to remove a mass from my uterus. The surgeon also said she would check to see if my fallopian tubes were blocked as I have fertility issues. After the surgery she told me that my left fallopian tube was blocked. She did not have to remove the tube as it was not connected to the mass. I had surgery 2 days ago hoping that my surgeon could unblock the tube only to be informed in the recovery room that my left tube was non existent. How can a fallopian tube just disappear???????

Each patient is different. Without a detailed history, physical exam, and supportive diagnostic tests, it is impossible to specifically answer your question.

I’ve had a bump under the skin of my armpit for a few months but it hasn’t been red or sore. It recently started oozing whitish, greenish puss with an odor. It’s still not red, nor ever really looked like a pimple. What could it be? Maybe from an ingrown hair?

There are a number of causes of bumps in the armpit. That it recently opened up and started oozing purulent fluid is suggestive of an abscess or pilonidal cyst (infected hair follicle). Treatment is with an incision and drainage followed by a course of antibiotics. Alternatively, cysts/lumps in the armpit are suspicious for . . . → Read More: I’ve had a bump under the skin of my armpit for a few months but it hasn’t been red or sore.
