If my spleen is enlarged could it rupture by simply sleeping on my side?
Splenic rupture isn't caused just by trauma. Yes, your spleen can rupture outside of something traumatic like a car crash etc. If you have mono and your spleen is enlarged it can rupture from direct contact. That is why your doctor refrains you from any contact sports or anything else. I wouldn't really say sleeping on your side would do it. If it was really enlarged then yes its possible but realistically they usually don't get that big. (+ info
What is the greatest danger of a splenic rupture?
What is the greatest danger of a splenic rupture?
What is the average survival rate for splenic rupture due to trauma?
Like if you have Mono and your spleen is enlarged,you get hit in stomach,it ruptures and youre rushed to ER what is your chance of surviving?
I had a splenic artery anyeresum and the doctor told me I had to have it out immediately because left alone if it burst you'd bleed to death rather quickly. Letting a swollen spleen go could cost you your life....people die on the table before the doctor can even get them open in time so don't mess with it.

What are the chances of a uterine rupture?
I will be almost 3 years since my last c-section. (34 months to be exact) My hospital does not have an anesthesiologist available 24-7, so I am considering having another c-section. Does anyone know the chances of having a uterine rupture 34 months after having surgery? I just don't want to undergo surgery if my chances are very slim of having a complications, especially if a VBAC would be safe. My doctor has left the decision up to me. If anyone has had to make this decision, I am interested in why you chose either way.
If you do have a rupture and the anesthesiologist isn't in-house when it happens, you WILL have a C-section with local anesthesia, and you won't enjoy it.
The hospitals near me don't allow VBAC without a full C-section team in-house.
Why did you have the first C-section? That can influence your risk.
ACOG recommends having personnel for C-section immediately available. Any physician who disregards that advice is playing with fire. (+ info
How long does it typically take for a cerebral aneurysm to rupture?
I recently had a cerebral aneurysm rupture and bleed out in my brain. After a very long surgery I am now recovering. I was curious how long it was in my brain before it ruptured?
It is true, there is no way to know. Although more than likely, it had been there a while. Aneurysms, unless caused by trauma, tend to grow fairly slowly. Some aneurysm locations in the brain can be faster than others due to differences in blood flow. (+ info
How is a fracture different from a rupture?
I ruptured my right ankle's ligament while coming downstairs. The Doc says its not a fracture, but a rupture. But still he plastered my ankle with POP.
So what is the difference between a fracture and a rupture?
The term 'rupture' is associated with soft tissue, while a fracture (or break) typically refers to harder tissue such as bone. You can rupture a blood vessel or a ligament, but you can't rupture a bone. Similarly you can fracture a bone but you can't fracture a ligament.
The ligament is what connects the bones in your ankle to one another, holding them in place. A fracture of the bone or rupture of the ligament will both feel quite similar and both will likely to be rendered immobile as they heal, hence the cast. (+ info
What are the symptoms of a plantar fascia rupture?
I was running yesterday and I felt a tearing sensation on the bottom of my foot and today I can barely walk. I've had plantar fasciitis before, this felt different. How do they treat plantar fascia rupture? Anyone know? Not a lot on the web about it.
If you strain your plantar fascia, it can become inflamed, weak and swollen, making it painful to stand or walk. The pain may be strongest when you first step out of bed in the morning or if you have been standing for long periods of time.
There are lots of different options for healing plantar fasciitis. You can give your feet a rest for a few days and avoid doing activities that make the pain worse. You can also trying icing the area, using an over-the-counter pain reliever and buying shoes with extra support. If your condition worsens, your doctor can give you shots of steroid medication.
If the pain in your foot persists, you should consult your doctor!

Is it possible to rupture a blood vessel in your penis?
I am a male and I had sex for the first time last night and when we were done, I noticed a small red circle near the base of my penis. It was the color of blood. It's somewhat diminished today. Did i bruise my penis or rupture a blood vessel or something? Perhaps the pressure on it from having sex did it?
EDIT: I should provide more information I am 21 years old and a senior in college. I held out for a long time I know lol. I am also a gay man, so I didn't bump against any "vaginal wall" but it could have been thrusting into the anal cavity to hard perhaps???? Any thoughts?
OMG I think it's a hickey!!!! That would make sense since he did suck pretty hard for foreplay!
Edit: Engaged... And you can just go somewhere I can't say on yahoo... Seriously. We were also not made to fly in airplanes or travel on wheels but we do anyway. Take your homophobia somewhere else and attempt to come out of the closet sometime.
This is a tough one. I could suspect a hickey, a rupture, or disease. To get to the bottom of this would require too many personal questions that should not be asked or answered here. If you're still in school, visit the school nurse (that person is NOT going to laugh at you or be judgmental) or the health center if you're in college. If you're an adult on your own, then ask a friend of yours who is a nurse, or see a doctor. (+ info
