Problems: scary symptoms Canadian Health Care Mall
Any moles or freckles which have been present and unchanging for a long time are benign, but keep an eye on them for any change of colour or increase in size, as is recommended for the rest of your skin. Report any such changes to your doctor, and certainly get all newly appearing lesions checked out, as well as anything that hurts, bleeds, oozes or itches — there are some changes that are precancerous which can occur in the skin of the penis.
Especially in warm climates, in the folds of the skin such as the groin, a bacterium called Corynebacterium minutissimum thrives and causes a velvety brown appearance to the skin. This may cause itching and can be treated with canadian health care mall antibiotics.
A common cause for silent worry can be a hard translucent swelling on the shaft of the penis. On questioning, this will be found to have appeared after intercourse or masturbation and is a ballooning of the lymphatic channels that have become blocked by this minor trauma. This will go away with no need for help from anyone.
Another common scourge is a yeast infection, especially on the glans and under the foreskin in uncircumcised men. This is more common in diabetics, men whose partners have untreated yeast infections, uncircumcised men and those living in warm climates. Washing with mild soap and water, drying well and using an anti-fungal cream available over the counter from your local chemist should do the trick.
The bottom line with all these symptoms is not to worry — go and see your doctor for a definitive diagnosis and treatment, if warranted, but don’t have any night-mares. Dick is not falling off.
The balls also are not immune to various infections. The epididymis, that long coiled tube that leads from the testis into the urethra, is more commonly infected than the testis itself (inflammation of the testis is called orchitis — those orchids again). Epididymitis produces, as you might imagine, pain and tenderness and swelling in the affected part, and often fever and a general feeling of being unwell. A urine sample should be taken to identify the bug responsible before starting antibiotics. (Your doctor will want to have a good look first to confirm the diagnosis, and make sure that what you have got is not a torsion, or twisting, of the testis — see the next chapter.) Resting up, firm support of the scrotum, avoiding sex and pain relief are all clearly a good idea, as well a course of antibiotics canada pharmacy.
Orchitis can be an extension of epididymitis, or may be due to mumps or infection in the prostate gland. The treatment is similar to that for infection in the epididymis.
