Conditions with symptom: 's-shape curve'
I am 30 years old and have been diagnosed with Peyronies, I get bad pain when having sex which makes it off putting and sometimes pain when my penis is soft. I dont however have any curve in my penis. When I saw the urologist he explained the operation to correct the curve and shorten the penis but when i explained there is no curve he told me that the procedure requires it. I am confused? why would he shorten my penis when there is no curve? I feel that i just need the plaque removed. In fact although i have a whole vein that is hard and lumpy, it is only a particular nodule that causes the pain. I have also noticed that I cant always aim straight when urinating. I have scanned the internet but it appears that i am the only one without a curve. Please help, I am still young and This is affecting my life.
Your not the only one, my husband too does not have the curve.
Hey, I'm only 15, but I've noticed that my breasts are a tubular shape. I don't know whether this is normal for my age or whether the breast shape will change. I got my period about 3 years ago, and since then, my breast size hasn't changed at all. I'm about a B cup, sometimes I barely fit into a B! My breasts are very far apart (abnormally widely spaced.) There's no breast tissue underneath my nipple/arealo and the breasts have a kind of 'tubular'/'triangular' shape... they don't naturally curve like normal breasts do, they 'stick straight out!' I really don't know whether this is serious or not, whether it's really abnormal or if it will change once I stop growing. I've noticed other girls in my class seem to have round breasts. I'm too embarrassed to go to the GP. Is there something wrong with me?
Hello I am 20 years old and for a few years now I have suffered bad with my breast. 2 years ago now I refered to hospital for pains and miss shaped breast. My left great is 2 sizes bigger then my right and I have had mammograms and scans which confirm I have no breast tissue. This makes me in so much pain. The hospital seem to have done nothing to help. I would really like to know what I could do. I don't really have a lot of confidence and Have been thinking about breast plants would this help? Thankyou. X
how much curvature in penis is normal? I have a curve towards left but its not a sharp curve.
I am a 17 year old girl and I was diagnosed with s curve scoliosis about 2 years ago. They said it was about 17 degree curve back then but I can feel it's gotten worse over time, I've been referred back to physiotherapy but I keep getting sharp shooting pains in the top curve. I can't find any information about shooting pains in scoliosis on the Internet, do you know why it's happening and what I can do to relieve it until I go back to physio?
i'm 16 years old, and female. i have suffered from a bad back for about 4 years since i fell off a fence, i was sent to a back specialist to see what is wrong, they found out my back is bent but like a wiggle shape, not a C or S shape. and you can only tell i have curve spine on x ray as there no sign on my back as spine looks normal. also on my right side my spine and hip have joined, i been told drs cant operate as there more likely to damage my back more, is there anything i can do to help the pain or stop it getting worse? also is there a name for my back condition, as i been told its abnormal and not given a name ? plus i been told i was born with this condition.
take it easy... i'm 14 and have delt with it my whole life!! try roling up a towel and duck tape it and when you sit put it where your in the most pain!!!! it helps a bit or for a whoile
At the age of 12 I had a cyst removed from right testicle. I'm now 18 and still suffering from pain after the operation. The healing process seemed to take almost a year, and even after that the shape and texture of my testicle has never felt right. When I feel it, it seems to resemble the shape of a very curvy kidney bean,the centre of the curve being when the cyst was. It also feels like one half of my testicle is growing around the other. There's always a constant throbbing which is especially noticeable when i'm not doing anything that takes any concentration and is three times as heavy as my healthy testicle. I've been to my GP many times, and I just do not trust them anymore, as on my last visit about the same problem, I was scanned and told I had a hernia, then when they opened me up, they didn't find anything to fix... So I was cut open for no reason at all.
No, you can't just have a urine test, because urine tests are to check if it's for bladder infection or your appendix , he has to give a prostate exam.
hello im sixteen, ive always had a slight curve to the left side but lately there has been a large bump forming on my right size making my penis curve more :/ i was wondering if anything was wrong, also i think it could be something to do with me having a tight foreskin, im getting that sorted later on in the year but should i also tell them about my other problem :/
hi i watched the show last night about scoliosis and think thats what i might have.i am 35 and my back is curved at the top and hunched over its been like this for as long as can remember and for years suffered with pains across my shoulders and the bottom of my curve. my nan always used to tell me when i was younger to sit up straight but i couldn't cause it used to hurt when i did. i hate my curve and always been very self concious about it please can any one help me thanks lesley
do you think it may be schuermanns disease which i have which is curvature of the spine in a hunch forward position....id like to talk to anyone with this condition if poss..thanks
I am male and 57 and was officially diagnosed with kyphoscoliosis when I was 17. This is a scoliosis with forward curvatures as well. My spine is corkscrew shaped. I have classic symptoms - one protruding shoulderblade, rotated hips, and a hunched back and round shoulders. Looking at the girl in the programme my physical appearance is much much worse My mum had been concerned about my "slouching" since I was a baby. I was constantly being told to stand up straight etc. It was mentioned to the school doctor when i was about 10 and he re-iterated the "stop slouching" statement I was constantly in pain during my teens and it wasnt until I started work that my employer noticed I may have a back problem and sent me to her private GP. i was immediately put in a temporary brace and then fitted with a Milwaukee brace which I wore 24/7 for 2 years. Combined with physio this did straighten my spine a bit but I still have a 42 degree and an opposing 50 degree thoracic scoliosis and a 40 degree kyphosis. I saw an NHS consultant when I was about 30 and he said there was nothing that could be done and "id have to live with it". When i asked about surgery he said I was too old. I am in constant pain and get very little sleep. i also get very tired very quickly even doing simple things like walking or cycling I also have osteoporosis of the spine and suffered from congestive heart failure 5 years ago which the cardiologist said was probably exacerbated by the fact my lungs are permanently in a crushed position. Like Lesley, I hate my curve and am reluctant to swim or wear tight clothes because its so ugly. My self confidence is very low. I was taking Diclofenac but my GP stopped that after research found that it reacted with the heart drugs I take daily - now I just take paracetamol which is like giving an elephant a strawberry
I'm 17 years old and i was wondering if there is a way to change the shape of your boobs without surgery as one is a different shape than the other as there is less tissue underneath, please can someone help me
Hi there, I am 15 years old and I am really uncomfortable about my breasts. I feel that they saggy and so far apart (which gives me no cleavage) and I hate it; I have no volume at the top of my breasts, but its all at the bottom, making them appear to be a triangle shape! I know in comparison with other people they are hardly saggy, but compared to other girls my age, they are really low down. I find it hard to get a well fitted bra; I am a 32D which I find to be an odd shape. This makes me feel so uncomfortable everyday -.- Is there any way that I can be more comfortable with my size and shape?
Try different types of bras- some will suit you and feel more comfortable than others. You could try a push-up bra if you wanted?
