Cell phone has poor reception can we just email a few more questions youmight need?

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

This has to be a cyst that you may have had there for some time and not known it

But if its tender now it probably is becoming infected

You should have your doctor take a look at this since I would prescribe you a course of antibiotics for it

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
