    Medical Advice

    Discussion started by Milton - Nov 13, 2005

    Yo,
    I think we need a thread for lay medical advice. Actually I have a question and wanted some opinions. But I encourage everyone else to ask questions.

    About 3 weeks ago I got a bump on the floor of my mouth under my tongue. It's about the size of a pea. I thought it was smoking so I quit smoking, but it didn't go away. Over the weekend it was all the way gone. But then I drank a redbull and that made it come back. Is it possible that the red bull is causing the bump?

    Also, in case everyone was curious about condoms. I have for quite some time been freaked out because I thought condoms were only 85% effective. I was sitting there counting and multiplying 15% by how many times I'd had sex and freaking out. As it turns out this statistic is garbage (propaganda). According to the whitepapers at planned parenthood here is the statistics on condoms:
    1) With average use of a condom (which means average use of a 17 year old including people who a) put the condom on halfway through sex; b) only use condoms inconsistently, and; c) put them on incorrectly so that they break/puncture) 15 women out of 100 will get pregnant over the course of a year. With perfect use (a)putting it on correctly esp. without air bubbles and space at the tip; b)using it consistently, and; c) using before you stick it in the first time) only 2 out of 100 women get pregnant over the course of a year.

    Does anyone know why you're not supposed to put it in the toilet? Is it bad for the environment or something?

    I'm not certain, but the bump may be a blocked saliva gland.

    A few years ago I had these lumps that formed under my skin on my shoulder blade. If you pushed on it, it would roll from under the pressure point and then return to its place when pressure was taken away. It was like that for a few months and then the 3 lumps went away. Anybody have any ideas on that one?
