    Hello, describe this chest pain.. is it a dull aching pain or a sharp stabbing one? .this chest pain is it only worsened by exercise or does ur body position affect it? is the chest pain at the lower, upper or central chest? Lower chest pain may be due to ulcer, however central chest pain is usually due to heart or lung problems.. u might need to do a chest x-ray as well. also a full lipid profile.. take analgesics for now before d test results are available.. the tests will help us cone down to a possible cause.. take care

    Morning Doctor. Pls, can one determine his or her child with his blood group or genotype?
    Dr. Emmanuel O answered:

    Genotype and blood group are not paternity tests.. However one can exclude the possibility of a child being his' by the results of genotype eg if both parents are AA, its not possible to give birth to an SS or even AS child.. So that kind of exclusion can be done.. ABO Blood group typing is another option... But den the ultimate decider of paternity is DNA Paternity test that uses genetic fingerprinting(DNA profiling) to determine Paternity.. i hop this helped.. take care
