  1. Hi everyone.

    I have quite large Hemangiomas on my back, which are in short; birthmarks.


    'A hemangioma is an abnormal build up of blood vessels in the skin'

    Will this fail me the medical, baring in mind that It has never ever affected my ability in sports or any physical activity, and I've never been off of work, school, nor college with it?

    Thanks alot all.
  2. I don't know to be honest, but I doubt it.

    I on the other hand have huge cahonas, which can impair my ability to run sometimes ;)

    Spoke to a RAMC bint, who does medicals, and she said unless it was freakishly large and like a humpback - then no, this wouldn't affect you passing.

    But, on the subject of the danglies, I was on a course where a bloke had a few tick bites on his scrote, they literally swelled up to the size of mangos easily. Was horrific watching him trying to run. I'd say horrifically funny but the guy was a hero.
  4. Lesson being, never attempt to get a blowjob from a tick.
  5. 2 balls, neither of them crystal ;)
  6. still, Hemangiomas are really really gross.
  7. Thanks asshole, but mine aren't like the pictures you see on the internet.

    Thanks Smudge and BBear, much appreciated.
