Can you put this in words that I am able to understand? Do these readings lean towards pulmonary sarcoidosis? Doctor mentioned severity, and concerned as to a later stage of sarcoidosis. Later Stage?? He also mentioned lymphoma, why is that? Please make this more clear to me?? Growths? Inside, outside the lungs? Possibility of it being Cancerous? Below is the explanation of the findings in my CT scan results. Looking for lehmans terms, Thank you in advance.Respectfully,Justin KaneResults....SarcoidosisTechnique:CT scan of the chest.

Subcarinal adenopathy measuring 1.8 cm in the short axis. 1.6 cm hilar adenopathy.No pleural or pericardial effusion.The upper abdomen is unremarkable.No osseous lesions.Impression :1.

Ive had a very slight sore throat that seems to come and go.
Ive had a very slight sore throat that seems to come and go. It looks red right now, especially on one side. I had a strep test today that came back negative. I've noticed a white dot that sort of looks like a pimple. I had something exactly the same a few weeks ago. I had touched it with a q-tip and some white stuff came out.I thought whatever this is was gone but it seems like I still have it. I've also noticed a faint discoloration on my skin near my calves. It could just be me getting older it never noticed it until now.Any idea what this is? The nurse practitioner prescribed amoxicillin even though she wasn't sure what it was. Could this be an Std? Syphillis?

I have conjunctivitis months which started in my left eye,
I have conjunctivitis for 4 months which started in my left eye, within 1 week it was also my right eye. I waited about 2 weeks to see an ophthalmologist thinking it might clear on its own. It was better then it would come back but never as bad as the first episode. In the morning I had a crusty discharge but not stuck shut. Sometimes throughout the day I would have a goopy discharge that was mostly clear. My eyes do not hurt but they are very bloodshot and lots of redness below the lids. I have never had any eye problems before and do not wear glasses or lenses. The first ophthalmologist I saw believed it was viral and placed me on steroid eye drops. The condition was better but has never resolved. 2 months later, I saw another ophthalmologist and reviewed my symptoms with her. She has placed me on another round of steroid eye drops and restasis eye drops. She said she did not believe it was viral at this point but severe dry eyes. She also recommended the liquid tears several times per day. She did say my cornea had some surface damage and it was quite severe. I am very concerned about taking restasis after reading some of the side effects. I also wonder why neither of these eye docs ordered any type of test to see if it was a virus vs bacteria vs something else?JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is your eyelid swollen at all?Customer: no swelling and about 4 monthsJA: Is there anything else important you think the Opthamologist should know?Customer: I want to know more about the restasis because it is very expensive and the ophthalmologist said it will take at least 3 months to work and I still need to take the steroid drops during those 3 months which are also very expensive! on the other hand I know my eyes are very important so if this is necessary i will do it but i hope they are not going down the wrong path with my treatment. I am also concerned about the side effects of the restasis that i have read about such as increased blood pressure, severe headaches, heart palpitations, etcJA: OK. Got it.

I've had this mark on my upper thigh couple of years. It'sView more medical questions
I've had this mark on my upper thigh for a couple of years. It's been over the past months it's itchy, bleeds and gets irritated. I remember I started waxing this area and I remember this might have started out from an ingrown but not sure. It was almost like a scar and then it has been waxed over a few times and it would cause again to the area. I went to the doctor recently and was prescribed fucidin and have been referred to a dermatologist soon. Any input would be great. Thank you
