My son is 20 years old and about 6-8 months ago he was diagnosed with a variocele in his scrotum. He saw a specialist at a urology clinic and the doctor didn't seem too concerned about my son getting it surgically repaired. It's been 8 months now and my son seems to be in no hurry to get the variocele fixed as it's not causing him too much discomfort. Just once in a while he has some discomfort. I am concerned that my son's future for reproducing children will be affected. Should my son look into getting the variocele fixed surgically? Please advise. Thank you.View Thread
Internal Med Dr. diagnosed me with Labyrinithitis about 4 weeks ago. My understanding of labyrinithitis is an inflammation of the inner ear or virus. My doctor told me that it would take anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks to clear up and nothing that can be done. I am still having dizziness when I sleep at night and put my head on my pillow and especially when I turn my head to the right. I am able to fall asleep at night but when I awake in the a.m. I still get dizzy and it takes a few minutes to clear up. Is there anything I can do to help relieve the symptoms? Or do I just have to give it more time and ride it out for a few more weeks? Thank you.View Thread
