Dr. Christian Jessen specialises in sexual health.

Dr. Christian:
There’s absolutely no need for people to feel embarrassed because believe me, I’ve seen it all before.

Why have you just come to see me now about this..?

I’d hate to see what could develop under his foreskin if it was left…

It is quite likely you may have something. If you come and see us we’re not going to chop it off but if you don’t, it might fall off by itself…

But your results are, quite frankly, shocking…

There are certain parts of our bodies that we don’t talk about but when they go wrong, we should…

You’ve got away with it…

People would rather suffer in silence then get these things treated and that’s ridiculous in this day and age.

I have a small, painless lump on/just inside anus. Should I go the doctor?

Hi there, I watched the program that was recorded in Australia. I am glad someone has been on who has pcos. The only thing is as a person who has pcos herself there were a few things not said. Eg problems loosing weight, depression, etc My question is : I have been told that I have pcos but my last scan was clear of cysts. I do have the implant in would that make a difference?

Hi, I'm 31 male and have suffered from excessive sweating for years now, been to see the doctors who have tried a few things ( tablets, roll on ect ect ) and none have worked and it just gets worse, I now sweat from my armpits , my head ( sometimes looks like a tap been turned on ) and most worse now for the last couple years is from my backside. Have been to see a specialist and basically said there was nothing and said maybe I try to lose some weight and see if that helps, Even trying to lose weight never happens and just gain some, yes I do have high blood pressure and with people staring because I'm always wiping my head of sweat gets me rattled up. I've always got a headache and I do drink plenty of water ( around 4-6 pints a day ).

I really hope this message gets to somebody that can help. My Mum about 5-6 years ago had all of her top teeth removed and she was given dentures from a dentist, which she does not wear as they hurt her gums to much, she also was advised by the dentist to go back and get her bottom one's removed which she was to scared to do and ended up not going back as her having no top teeth caused her so many physical and mental problems. My Mum also need's her bottom teeth removed and with the right help she is willing to give it a go. Ever since this event happened she has never left her house unless if it was to go to the local store. She's very embarrassed to the point that she no longer socialize's much or make's any new friend's. I have noticed since this event happened she has given up on her life and seem's to be getting more depressed every day. For the last few years I have been trying to find ways for her to get better treatment, till this day I haven't had any luck. So please could someone from the show get in touch with me via email? Thank you for reading. :)
