Penis Bumps - What It Means to Have a Genital Hemangioma

Penis Bumps - What It Means to Have a Genital Hemangioma


Adult males with an interest in superior penis care are familiar with many of the common penis health issues: Peyronie's disease, pearly penile papules, Fordyce spots, and so on. But there are many other penis conditions that are not so common. One of these, genital hemangioma (sometimes called penile hemangioma), tends to occur more often in children, but can affect adult men as well, resulting in unusual penis bumps or marks.

Hemangioma

What is a hemangioma? In the vast majority of the cases, it is a birthmark, something a child is born with or which develops very early in infancy. It's a benign vascular tumor, which is another way of saying that the blood vessels in an area of the skin get together in an unusual way, such that they leave a mark on the skin above them. When the capillaries stay beneath the skin, the mark is referred to as a cavernous hemangioma. When the vessels erupt from the skin, appearing on the surface, they are called capillary hemangiomas.

Although a hemangioma can be quite visible early on, most of them tend to fade away as a child ages. The majority of hemangiomas disappear by adolescence, although capillary hemangiomas are more likely to remain visible for an extended period of time than cavernous ones. However, some adults do experience the arrival of hemangiomas later in life.

Since the tumors are noncancerous, they are typically not a cause for concern. In some cases, however, they can create difficulties. Cavernous hemangiomas, in particular, may cause vision or breathing problems, depending upon where they are located and how deep they go. If the hemangioma is in certain areas, it may cause nausea, abdominal discomfort and loss of appetite.

Genital hemangioma

When a hemangioma appears on the penis or testicles, it is considered a genital hemangioma. These are very rare, with only about two dozen cases described in medical literature. While hemangiomas tend to be benign, the placement of one on the penis can become problematic. Because of the intense friction the penis endures during sex, the hemangioma can cause significant discomfort and pain. In some instances, sexual activity, whether in the form of intercourse or masturbation, can result in rupture of the capillaries and bleeding.

In addition, some men find the presence of penile hemangiomas to be aesthetically unappealing. Potential partners may be concerned about their appearance, worrying that they may indicate the presence of a sexually-transmitted infection (which is not the case). If a man is displeased with the appearance of his penis due to the tumor, he may find his self-esteem impacted and may experience feelings of depression.

Treatment

If a man decides to have a hemangioma removed, the most common options are surgical excision, laser therapy and sclerotherapy (injection of chemicals directly into a vein). When the hemangioma is on the penis, sclerotherapy is probably the most common procedure.

As stated before, genital hemangiomas are rare, especially in adult males. However, if a man notices a swelling and discoloration on his penis for which no other cause is evident, he should explore this option with his doctor.

The cause of hemangiomas is still unknown, but a penis in good health is in a better state to receive treatment if one does develop. One excellent way to maintain penile health is via the daily application of a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). It pays to select a crème that covers all the bases, so the wise shopper will choose one that includes a range of vitamins, preferably A, B5, C, D and E. It's also a good idea to find a crème with L-arginine, an amino acid that helps boost the health of penile blood vessels by keeping them open to increased blood flow.

Hi Start with exercises and strengthen your lower back. Morning stiffness if its persisting just go for blood test and check for you vitamin levels. You can visit near by physiotherapy centre for further treatment. As physiotherapy is best helpful for you, just don't ignore it as it might start later with tingling, throbbing pain to lower legs.

Blisters In Armpits - Can It Be A Sign Of Scabies?

Blisters In Armpits - Can It Be A Sign Of Scabies?

The development of bumps and blisters on your skin surface accompanied by severe itching are the symptoms of a skin condition known as scabies. It is caused by a burrowing mite called sarcoptes scabiei. A patient experiences itching in the affected area and the urge for itching gets increased during the night. Scabies is a contagious disease and spreads rapidly among people via a physical contact.

Symptoms
Thin and irregular burrow tracks or blisters are common symptoms of scabies. These tracks generally appear in the folds of the skin. Commonly, scabies appears in the following areas:

  1. Between the fingers
  2. In the armpits
  3. Around the waist and along the insides of the wrist
  4. On the inner elbow, soles of the feet
  5. Around the breasts, buttocks, knees and shoulder blades

In case you had scabies previously, the symptoms usually develop within a few days after exposure. For first-time occurrences, six weeks are required for the symptoms to appear.

Causes
The eight-legged female mite which causes scabies burrows beneath the skin, produces a tunnel and deposits egg in it. After being hatched, the mite travels to the skin surface. Here they become mature and spread to other areas. The body’s allergic reaction to the mites, the eggs and their waste material causes the itching. Vigorous scratching of the scabies infected skin can break the skin, allowing a secondary bacterial infection to develop, like impetigo. A severe type of scabies known as crusted scabies can affect some people.

Crusted scabies usually affects people suffering from chronic heart diseases due to which the body’s immune system gets weakened. People who are very sick, hospitalised and aged people in nursing homes may develop crusted scabies. This type of scabies is scaly and crusty, covers large areas all over the body and is difficult to cure.

Treatment of scabies
The involves the elimination of the developments using medicines. There are several lotions and creams, which can be used on a doctor’s prescription for treatment. These creams should be applied all over the body. After the application, the medication should be left for eight hours. In case of recurrence of rashes and burrows, a second treatment may be required.

It is important to consult a doctor for proper treatment of scabies. Usually, treatment is recommended for all family members and close friends of an affected person, even though no symptoms of scabies appear in these people.
