Hi,

You don't need to be in hospital for leaving smoking and can be done as an out pateint procedure and you just may have to visit the hospital from once weekly to once in two weeks.
It is not an expensive procedure,at least not the amount of money you have spent on smoke till date.
Visist a doctor first(psychiatrist) only then plan to quit it.
Time taken is variable, how much time you take to respond to the drugs(nicotine
gums can be precribed) and councelling.
Yes you can take your spouse.

I have what I thought was a bruise falring up a bit on my right chin / jaw line. I could feel the bump but could not remember being hit to cause such a decent size lump. My children often kick and hit me in the face in play. But to get this size lump would have been memorable unless at 39 my body now can't handle even a gentle bump. But it seems to now be getting slightly worse and is begining to feel numb and slightly itchy. I have a very mild middle bottom tooth infection. I thought if my gland was up it would be a lower / under my chin swelling which it is not under the chin but on and if anything above. I am visably looking like fred flintstone actor's chin on one side / elephant man slightly.

  Doctor's Answer

Hi, If your swelling is on the same side as the tooth ache, it could be because of the existing tooth infection. To determine if the cause is the tooth or not, you need to visit a dentist and get a complete oral examination done specifically focusing on that particular side of the jaw. Preferably, get an x ray to see the tooth also. It could be a tooth infection leading into a space infection. Other reasons could be - cysts, trauma, bacterial infection like actinomycosis, abscess etc. This ca ...

Hi again, Yes this is fine. The skin does dry and flake as it recovers from any inflammatory event like an anceiform eruption. You can use a bland moisturizer like Cetaphil cream for the dryness if you like and use a soap free face wash like Cetaphil-OS face wash. All the best and regards! ...

Hi, The foreskin on my penis is quite tight and I am not able to retract that easily. I am in a planning for marriage in next 2 - 3 months. So any resolution for the above problem? I have checked for options and came to know that Circumcision can be an option but worried about the process of removal of complete foreskin. I personally feel that foreskin is a very sensitive part of penis comprised of vital sex nerves, which helps to release sensual felling during masturbation/sexual activity but as the part of process to circumcision surgery, the foreskin need to be cut away so, worried that, without foreskin how I can get sexual sensation in future or during foreplay? How penis reacts after removal of foreskin for sexual activities? Is it true circumcision surgery really reduces some level sexual sensitivity from penis? Please help me on above queries. Thanks, Bikram
