  • this would be enough cause for me to go to a doctor. only there can you get a diagnosis and a definite "yes" or "no" as to whether you should be worried about this or not.

  • Is this diverticulosis? CST scan saw inflamation in S of colon. Prescribed ciproflaxacin & mrtronidazole for two weeks. Non-stop watery diarreah. Stopped medication after two weeks, but diarreah continues. Pain on left side when dehydrated, seems worse. Left side slightly painful to touch. Many thanks for comments. I don't want to go to flagil.

  • Please do not wait to go to the doctor. My daughter is 16 and she just had a cough and a lymph node in her supra-clavical area (where the neck joins the shoulder). She had no pain at all just a cough that she could not get rid of. They finally did a chest x-ray and found a large mass that was pressing on her lung. It turned out to be Hodgkins lymphoma. She is now in treatment and doing well. I am not saying that is what you have but we would have never imagined in a million years she had cancer. Do not wait just bite the bullet and go to your doctor. What can it hurt? Good luck.im a 17 year old male and im very worried about my symptoms in the last 6 monthsive had gross oedema swelling of the legs abdomen and face and enlarged lymph nodes everywhere from the collar bone upmy energy is depleted and ive now got a constant sore spot in the left tonsil area of the throati sometimes have a mild metallic taste in my mouth can anyone help as i don't want to go to the doctors without substantial cause

  • You should never prolong seeing a doctor when you have symptoms you are unsure of. We sometimes are scared of the results, but catching symptoms earlier on can decrease the risk of a disease becoming fatal. Waiting only increases the chances. Getting results is always better than not knowing at all...and I am always in favour of a second oppinion. Also remember, research things for yourself, because doctors aren't always right...and be persistent for answers.
