Kids Ask Awkward Health Questions! | Doctor Mike


– Hey guys, welcome back to another episode of Ask Doctor Mike. We have three special
guests joining us today and I can’t wait them for to come– – You’re doing my show? – Yeah! Oh no! (slow beat hip hop music) – Hey guys, welcome to another episode of Ask Doctor Mike. I’m here with my special guests: – Ari, I’m 11 years old. – Daniel, 14. – Steven, I’m 14. – Let’s get it started. ♪ Be whoop! ♪ ♪ Be whoop! ♪ (laughing) (slow beat hip hop music) – You mean because of all
the Instagram girls that are – Yeah, like what’s the– – Why? Are you trying to do that? – No, I don’t, I don’t… – A lot of the girls on Instagram they have a lot of these exercises that build the back muscles.
– (murmurs) The squats and stuff?
– Squats, leg extensions. So they do all these
exercises in hopes that their butt will grow and that’s a thing, because guys find butts attractive. – Yeah. (laughing) – But what I’ll tell you right now is, I’m gonna spoil this for you, ’cause I’m on Instagram and I go to these fashion events and all that? There either all fakes,
– It’s the angles. – Photoshop, angles, whatever it is, and the ones that are healthiest don’t look like these crazy… It’s not realistic, or natural for a waist to be this tiny
and then the butt to be huge. But the amount of people that you see on Instagram with that? – Yo guys. – Unless you have a surgery. – Drop a comment, see if
you wanna do a butt review. (laughing) (slow beat hip hop music) – Okay, so when you’re in a car your balance center of your brain, which actually happens within an area called the semicircular canals. It’s inside your ear. It’s kinda crazy that your
balance is within your ear. – Like the fluids?
– Yeah, so the canals, you have the fluids, you have the calcium. – That’s why when you spin it hurts. – Yeah, exactly.
– You get dizzy. – You get dizzy, so people, some people, genetically, out of their control, are more sensitive to the motion when you’re in a car:
stopping, starting, all that. And because of the excess activity there, they start getting a little nauseous. – I don’t feel so good. (slow beat hip hop music) – Take down your pants and stuff, feel the testicles, I hate it. – Why do you hate it? What’s bad about it? We all have, I mean we
all have it; guys have it. – Yeah, I think it’s unnecessary. Like if there’s a problem
there, go to a specialist. – You got yourself in a little
trouble with me on that. Cause he said go see a specialist, why do you need to see a specialist? Why can’t you come see me
as the family med doctor? – No I’m saying, I know, I know you don’t like that,
cause you think you should always go to the doctor. They
know your history and stuff, – Yeah. – There’s no need to, you
know be lurking down there. I used to think the same
thing way were thinking now, and then as I was in med school, I started seeing patients
and I would ask them, you know, anything wrong down there? And they would say no. And then I would check, and something bad would be going on there. And they may have been
uncomfortable to tell you, and that happens all the time Dan, it’s crazy but it happens! The harm of looking at it and making someone feel uncomfortable is outweighed by the benefit of, we could save them and find something, and give them the treatments so they don’t have to deal with that. (slow tempo hip hop music) – You know, meeting new people, and I guess being in
a healthy relationship – Like socially? – Or like intimate with someone, – What we’ve seen is
people who are married and long-term, in good relationship, they have better health outcomes. It doesn’t mean you have to get married, in order to get those benefits. It is just something we
have seen after looking at periods of time and
giving people surveys. If I was to tell someone,
should you be in a relationship? The question would be
A) Do they want to be in a relationship.
B) Are they happy in that relationship? And only from there I can give them some sort of advice. That being said, humans
are social creatures, we like hanging out together. In fact, if you keep any animal or human in isolation for too long, we go crazy. Why do you think in jail
one of the worst punishments is solitary confinement?
What’s your favorite thing? Isn’t it hanging out with your friends? – Yeah.
– Right. Who doesn’t like hanging
out with their friends? [Dr. Mike] Do you?
– Not me. – [Dr. Mike] Ari, you
don’t like hanging out with your friends? – I hang out… no I
hang out with my friends – Oh, oh, here we go, – I said I agree with you.
– Fake friends. – Your friends are going to see this Ari, – Maybe I don’t have any.
– Is that true? – No, he has friends.
– I have three maybe. – Okay, that’s a lot of friends. You don’t have to have a million friends. If you have three really close friends. – I have a lot of
friends, but I don’t know, again, it’s just all about trust. – I actually had an issue with my neck, do you think you can diagnose it? – No, I can’t diagnose on camera, but I don’t want to get
off his trust thing. – Okay.
– No. Different topic. – No, I just want to make a comment on it. Am I allowed to make a comment? – Did you get a new shirt.
– Thanks. – It’s so nice.
– Thank you, I trust you. – Okay, new topic: shirts. (laughter) – No one can make you feel happy or sad. – Only you can make
yourself feel happy or sad. Do you agree with that? – Kind of, because other people
can have that impact on you. – How, tell me.
– Like bullying. – Okay, bullying. Let’s say someone says something mean to you.
“That green shirt is ugly.” Now, who decides if that upsets them. – Me. – Do you see where I am going with it? I right now can close my eyes, and think one really bad thought about you and one really good thougt about you. If my eyes are closed and
I don’t say it out loud. Will it change how you feel right now? – Probably not. – Probably not, or not. – Not.
– Not. (slow beat hip hop music) – You know how if you
are arm gets chopped off, it doesn’t heal? (laughter)
– What? – Why doesn’t it heal? (laughter) – “When your arm gets chopped
off, why doesn’t it heal?” – Yes.
(laughter) – If you put your arm back,
and reattach it, it will heal. – It does?
– If you put plates and screws – Yeah, it will just be a little floppy. – Yeah, you can reattach a
finger. I’ve seen that before. – I don’t see how we this
video came to the trust thing, to big butts, to cutting arms off… – Who doesn’t like trust and big butts? (slow temp hip hop) – Any guesses what a heart
attack is? Why does it happen? – I don’t know I was going to
think that someone scares you but I feel like it’s not really that. – Well it could be because – It could feel like that. – No, but there is some truth
behind getting a heart attack based off a scare.
– Sure. – If you have a lot of plaque. They say, a lot of plaque is
the size of a grain of sand, and if it starts building up that means blood flow is constricted. Then if it breaks off that
plaque and then all the blood cells start to going on
to it and start clotting. – You are on the right track.
So you are really close. The heart supplies blood
to the rest of the body, but it also needs blood for
itself. It’s a muscle, right. So the heart has very
little blood vessels, like the tunnels that deliver the blood, also that go to the heart,
those little tunnels. But those tunnels are much smaller than the big ones that
deliver blood everywhere else. So they’re more susceptible
to getting blocked off with plaque. Plaque is
what happens when you eat unhealthy, when you don’t
exercise, it’s basically these fatty waxy substances that build up on the walls of the
tunnel, that continuously get bigger and then can
block off the blood flow going to your heart. If your
heart doesn’t get enough blood, there’s a heart attack. A
heart attack is literally your heart being in pain
because part of it is dying. So does that make sense
how heart attacks work? – Yeah, for sure. – It’s because its tunnels, its plumbing. – So, if you have a busted
plum, then (laughter) – A busted plum? My man
what is a busted plum? All right guys, thanks

  1. Concerning genital exam in a physical: The inspection of a circumcised penis takes about 1 second. Testicles are more important; for one thing there's cancer of a testicle, seminoma, which produces no symptoms until it is too late; and the prevalence is between the ages of 15 and 35. The other thing is hernias, which when incipient do not give symptoms, but an inguinal hernia will always get worse, and surgery of an incipient hernia is much simpler than that of an advanced one. BTW, rectal exam is not part of a routine screening physical, much less in a man below the age of 50

  2. These boys are going to grow up to be good-looking gentlemen, like their uncle!
    I feel bad about all the rude comments. Puberty sucks 😞

  3. Bro… homophobia, toxic masculinity, and cultural hatred of the body/body standards is what makes it uncomfortable for the doctor to check your junk.

  4. Most IG girls with fat asses…have BBL’s done. Brazilian butt lifts. Lipo
    Also: I do not believe in bothering with a PCP/GP. I believe if there is an actual *issue*, then go to a special. Oh and marriage, I don’t believe, marriage= happiness. But I’d definitely recommend being with someone. Not kids tho

  5. Doctor Mike I have lots of questions…(I am 14 years old)
    Q1. What king of chemical reactions take place in the body when we are in love?
    Q2. Does being sad affect our physical health?
    Q3. Does brain control our immune system?
    Q4. Why do men voice get different when they hit puberty?
    Q5. Is there any chance of surviving myocardial infarction?
    Q5. Does being happy affects mental and physical health?
    Q6. Being slim is really a sign of good health?
    Q7. Can we call ourselves healthy because we excerise daily but we are not slim?

  6. I wish i had the oportunity to had an open talk about this kind of questions when i was 14… Its not easy for a kid have courage to question, but became more dificult when your parents dont give you this open – … Of course its a funny video, but int the end they are just boys growing up and looking for answers for their doubts… Congratulations for the vídeo, doctor =)

  7. I really love this kind of videos cuz kids have alot of questions and it is very helpful for them to be answered by a specialest as it makes them understand better
    I love his nephews plus that kid Ari seems really intelligent and smart Mashallah may God bless him and i am sure that with the right choices anf help that he may get he will be a great person

  8. I have such admiration for the younger population when they ask questions. Just by participating in the video with their Uncle Mike means they are on the right track to being confident young men😊good stuff

  9. I, a loner, would like to argue that it's not being alone with no human interaction that makes people go crazy, but the lack of mental stimulation. and nowadays, other humans are not the only course of that. inmates in solitary confinement? a cot and a toilet? give them an iPhone and wifi and see how that punishment goes. on the contrary, if you're put in a room with other humans, but say, they offer no stimulation at all, like idk you don't speak the same language, they're have a disability that prevents communication, it's a baby, or you just happen to hate that person, I doubt you'd be super happy.
    idk just my 2 cents. I love being alone. I could go days without speaking to another person.

  10. 4:30 I disagree. we can't control our emotions. we can try to, and we like to think that we have complete control over our feelings and emotions. but that is extremely untrue. emotions is that one piece of shit we can't shake. people in love do stupid crazy things. its human nature to respond to a confronting emotion. if someone dies, we feel grief. someone robs you, kills your family and punches you in the face? we feel hurt and anger. we can't just decide to not be hurt. the we way we can't just will away sadness or grief or anger.

    yes there is that thing of self actualization or whatever, or just being extremely self insightful and in tune with your feelings. but we do not have control of our feelings. our empathy, getting hurt, feeling bad, remorse, anger, these things are the essence of humanity and what makes us… not psychopaths lol.

    this video was posted a while ago but Dr. Mike if you see this I'd love to hear your rebutal/reply. perhaps you insinuated the wrong connotation?

  11. Regarding the heart attack question, the kid was actually more accurate than Dr.Mike.
    A heart attack is when an unstable plaque gets detached, thus triggering an inflammatory response witch causes a rapid deposition of various clotting factors, and this response in turn blocks the arteries.
    A gradual blocking of arteries happens to everyone (post-mortem autopsy of many babies showed signs of atherosclerosis), and actually that gives the heart a chance to make collateral arteries (meaning a different path to supply the heart).
    So the tunnels analogy isn't really good for describing heart attacks, it maybe more suitable for angina pectoris (chest pain).

  13. How are health insurance companies able to obtain our health records and use them to determine our eligibility? Is this a part of HPPA?

  14. I’d love to see them again ☺️🙏🏻
    It was nice to see how you talked to him about bullying and how he should feel about it. I’d love to see more
    tell us if you had patients with insecurities or low self confidence and how you helped them and talked to them.
