It definitely does not look like cancer. It looks like a benign condition. It may be sinusitis if you have the symtpoms.

It appears to be due to stress / anxiety, so relax and do exercise. However to exclude other cause you need to do some blood tests like sugar and hormones. Stop smoking if you smoke. If you are taking any medicine or nutritional supplement on regular basis then it may be due to side effect of that. Pain may be due to some infection. Treatment is available don't be morose.

: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Understand the Results of Your Semen Analysis

How to Understand the Results of Your Semen Analysis

Here's how to read and understand your semen analysis, plus a description of what a normal sperm looks like. Sluggish sperm, diminished sperm motility, and normal forward sperm progression are some of the terms you'll see on your semen analysis results.

The semen analysis measures a number of parameters that affect the chances of the sperm reaching the egg. Some of the parameters are indicators of sperm production and health and others relate the the quality of the semen and its ability to help sperm along the journey to the egg.

Since male infertility accounts for about 33% of not getting pregnant for couples, it's important to get a semen analysis done if you can't get pregnant. A man's sperm count, motility, or production is very important to pregnancy. Here's a description of the three parts of a sperm, plus information on what sperm test results mean?

What is a Sperm Made of?

Though sperm is teeny tiny, laboratory technicians can see their details under a microscope (which is what will happen during a semen analysis or sperm test).

The head of a sperm contains all the genetic material, so a sperm with an abnormal head can't fertilize an egg.

The midpiece of a sperm contains fructose, which is the energy it needs to move rapidly.

The tail of a sperm is necessary for propulsion. Sperm with no tail, two tails, or coiled tails are abnormal, and won't help with getting pregnant.

What Does Your Semen Analysis Mean?

Okay, you've received the results of your sperm test and you have no idea what sperm volume, concentration, motility, or morphology really means! Have no fear: the following parameters are from the World Health Organization (WHO) a reliable source of medical information.

Normal sperm volume (amount) is 1.5 to 5 ml, or about a teaspoon.

Normal sperm concentration should be greater than 20 million sperm/ml, or a total of greater than 40 million per ejaculate.

Normal sperm motility means that more than 40% of the sperm should be moving (swim forward, mates!).

Normal sperm morphology means that more than about 30% of sperm should be normally shaped, as determined by the lab technician. If the lab uses the more strict Kruger criteria, normal sperm morphology should be 14%.

Normal sperm forward progression is at least 2, on a scale of 1 to 4 (this part of the sperm test measures how many sperm are moving forward).

Sperm white blood cells should be no more than 0 to 5 per high-power field. More could indicate infection.

Sperm hyperviscosity means that the semen should gel promptly, but should liquefy within 30 minutes after the sample is taken.

Sperm Ph should be alkaline, to protect sperm from the acidic environment of the woman's va-jay-jay.

# Below are the most common diagnosis's made from the semen analysis.

Asthenospermia - swimmers don't swim: Asthenospermia occurs when the testicle is making sperm but they are not swimming. Major causes of reduced motility include:varicocele , poor diet, heat exposure , obesity and toxin exposure.

Azoospermia - Zero sperm: Azoospermia is broken down into two camps. Obstructive, which means that there is something blocking the path and trapping sperm inside the testicle. An non-obstructive, which means that the body isn't producing sperm to begin with. The treatment options, as you can imagine are quite different. To figure out what's going on, a male fertility specialist may perform a physical exam, ultrasounds, blood work and perhaps a few other test to perform the exact cause. Often, due to remarkable advances in technology and medical science, there are options to enable azoospermic men to successfully father children.

Oligospermia - Low Sperm Count: Oligospermia means that there is a low sperm concentration in the ejaculate. Generally, this means that something is impairing the testicle's ability to produce sperm. Learn more about low sperm count.

Hypospermia (semen volume under 2mL) and Aspermia (no semen): Usually indicate some sort of plumbing problem; a complete or partial blockage or a condition called retrograde ejeculation. Depending on the underlying cause there are prescription medications or surgical procedures that can help treat the issue. For more severe cases where treatment is unavailable or ineffective, a specialist can retrieve sperm from the testicle for artificial insemination or IVF.

Teratospermia - Abnormal morphology:Abnormal morphology means that something is interfering the the sperm maturation process that causes a high number of them to develop abnormally. Abnormal sperm can have heads that are too big or too small, two heads or two tails or they can be missing key proteins that enable them to accomplish their mission.

Your sperm will vary

And, if you've done a sperm test (or are preparing to do a sperm test), remember that semen samples can vary from month to month or even day to day. It takes 72 days for sperm to develop.

How does this affect the semen analysis or sperm test results? If you were ill, taking medication, or had anything unusual going on three months before the sperm test, then the results may not be indicative of normal sperm count, motility, or production.

I have stammering problem since I was child. I talk normally without stammering when I talks to friends or someone I know, but the problem starts when I talk to any strangers or front of many people on stage due to nervousness. It also happens when someone suddenly ask a question. It's really very big problem for me, I just want to overcome it. So if you please tell me what to do, I will be very obliged. Thank you & looking for your reply.

Speaking situations which are in your comfort zone, you will not face a problem. But when you are stepping out from your comfort zone stammering happens. This happens to all. But problem arise when you fail to cope with the situation. So you need to strengthen your coping mechanism. Speech therapy will help.

Hello, Sex stimulates forward peristalsis movement of the intestine. If you have some gastric trouble or constipation problem, sexual stimulation can result in trapped and obstructed gases in the bowel this causing cramping abdominal pain after sex. Its not an infection or any other disease. Improve your bowel habits, take fibrous diet, fix meal timings, take dry figs or raisins at night with milk. Your problems will be solved.
