    Sorry about that. If the pain is more in between your breasts it's very likely due to a peptic ulcer disease or a condition called Gastroesophageal reflux disease. You should try antacids e. g Gascol suspension, 10mls 3 times daily and see how it goes. If it improves then it's likely you have Ulcer. If the pain is to either left or right side of your chest, you will need to see Doctor to get your chest examined to be sure everything is in order. Okay?

    thanks doc. I had treated ulcer before now so are you trying to say it's coming back or what? pls let me understand. yes the pains is close to my left breast.
    Dr. Idris Q answered:

    Yes it can come back if poorly treated. The pain on the left can still be from the ulcer but it's better to undergo a thorough evaluation which will include a chest examination and some investigations to be sure. This is the best step towards getting a lasting solution to the problem. Take care

    Hello, It will be difficult to say without a proper examination of the breast. You need to see your Doctor for this. He/she might also request for a breast scan to be sure everything is in order.

    I have done a scan before now but nothing was seen but yet the pains keep coming on and off. what could be the possible cause pls

    The pain might be coming from your left chest and not necessarily your breast. If you have no abnormal breast discharge, then it might be one of the following -bone and muscles of the left side of your chest (most likely) -your left lung and it's surrounding structures -your heart These structures on the left side of your chest must be examined to rule out any abnormality.

    Hello, Likely a ear infection or he injured his ear while inserting a cotton bud. The first thing to do is to see a Doctor Who will examine the ear using special instrument. The findings of the evaluation will determine the next line of action. Take care

    Okay doc but Can consistent use of one ear to answer long calls be a possible cause for it?
    Dr. Idris Q answered:

    It is still a subject to serious debate. For now No! Pain in the ear is commonly associated with the use of foreign objects to clean the ear which might give room for infection. Regular or sudden exposure to very loud sound have also been implicated. Let him see a Doctor

    Good Afternoon doctor pls I have boil on my private part. it's quite painful. what is the possible cause and what can I take for it to go? Also am experiencing sharp pains on my both thighs back of it. what could cause it? thanks.
    Dr. Idris Q answered:

    Good afternoon, It might be a Bartholin cyst. It's like the usual boil you have on your skin. Poor hygiene of your genitals is one of the causes. Such problem cant be managed on this platform as it has to be examined before commencing you on treatment. Please see your Doctor. You can take analgesic for the pain. Tab diclofenac 50mg 2 times daily after food for 3 days. Take care

    doc I have always kept my genital clean and dry so I don't think it's poor hygiene. also you haven't said anything concerning the pains on my back thighs. it hurts badly. thanks
    Dr. Idris Q answered:

    I only mentioned genital hygiene as one one the causes. Your genital area has alot of glands. The boil you are experiencing is from the infection of one of these glands. The infection can be from various sources. You should note also it might not be what I'm thinking of since I've not examined you. The pain from the boil might radiate to your thighs, it's possible. That's why I recommended the analgesics for relief. That's the much I can do from here. Your Doctor will take care of the rest after evaluating you. Take care
