Conditions with symptom: 'pronounced adam's apple'
My 7 year old son has a prominent Adam's apple. Should I be concerned?
Hi I'm 16 years old and I am going through puberty. I am 5 foot 7 inches tall and weight roughly 11 1/2 stone. I have hair under my arms, slight facial hair, slight hair under the belly button and have pubic hair which has spread to my groin and buttocks hair. My voice has broken and I have a small Adam's apple. My penis is about 1 1/2 inches when flaccid and 4 1/2 inches when errect. I just wanted to know will my penis increase in size, or I am stuck like this. This is really effecting my confidence with girls.Please comment back.
Jason I'm a girl and I can honestly tell you that you are completely normal! Honestly, you should be confident because you have nothing to worry about! And if it's really bothering you that much just take a look on the vulva wall on here-us girls worry about ourselves More than guys do! Size won't matter at all when you're in a relationship with someone, because they should love you for who you are and not what you look like. Hope this helps:) x
I am a 30 year old woman, and I also have a very prominent adams apple, which I hate. This has depressed me since puberty. I recently found out I have hypothyroidism & I don't know if this is related to it at all. I'm too embarrased to ask my doctor about this. I would live more than anything to have my adams apple operated on to look more feminine. I don't feel like I'm a real woman because of it.
you must not be embarrased to speak to your gp, I had the same as you and found out I was hypothyroid (I even gave my goitre a name, it was case of laugh about it or cry. Its been five years since my first op and then another op two years ago took out the whole of the thyroid gland. The gland itself sits next to the windpipe and if yr hormone control is functioning then your thyroid will enlarge, its part of its anatomy to increase in size and unfortunately it will appear on your throat. Do you find wearing necklaces uncomfortable or scarves dig into your throat? please please go back to your doctor, they won't laugh its part of their job to fully explain things to you. Hopefully by now you have seen your doctor and have started medication to help with your hormone deficiency? I hope everything works out for you, be nice to yourself
my mum had a prominent adams apple and she was told she had Hypothyroidism and she had to have a op to take it out now she is loseing the weight the only draw back is the tablets!!!
The ligament running down the length of the top of my penis Is quite pronounced and tender where it joins the pubic bone What could this be?
I have what appears to be a lump on the knuckle nearest the nail on my middle finger - it may be fluid, but it has caused the nail to have a pronounced dent along its length, what could this be and is it curable please?
I have a 40 inch bra size, I have very sore skin under my breats, it makes no difference if I wear a bra or not it still gets sore. I have quite pronounced rib cage which I think is making it worse, have you any suggestions? On what to put on this. Thank you, Trisha
Try Desonide Cream 0.05%, It is a mild corticosteroid, which stops the body's immune system overreaction for skin conditions, such as psoriasis. You can get the cream with a doctor's prescription.
firstly I would recommend you get the sore area checked out by a g.p , it could be a fungal skin problem like candidia in which case a steroid cream like the one suggested would not be the correct treatment . The g.p would advise what cream to use
Hi my name is Adam, I am 14 years old. I have a problem with my penis, I can not pull my foreskin back properly. What Shell I do. I have tired pulling it back myself but it really hurts whilst doing it. Haven't seen a doctor Yet. please respond. Thank you
how do get my Adams apple removed?
I'm 16 and have had hair growth on my stomach for a number of years, although recently it seems to have become more pronounced and is definitely thicker. It makes me quite self conscious and I don't know what to do about it. I am concerned that frequent shaving of the area will cause the hair to grow even thicker and be even more noticeable. Is there anything else I can try to get rid of it?
my voice has broken and you can see my Adams apple but my balls dont seem to go lower or get bigger
If your testicles are outside your body, then there is probably nothing to worry about. Some guys hang low, others do not. If you plan to have children, then the main thing to be concerned about is having a sperm count that is high with plenty of viable sperm. Most labs can check on these two variables for you. If you're fine with these two counts, then no need to worry. If you're low with either of these two counts, then you need to be talking to doctors who specialize in these areas to see what your options are.
