Radiation therapy to the chest: Women who had radiation therapy to the chest (including breasts) before age 30 are at an increased risk of breast cancer. This includes women treated with radiation for Hodgkin's lymphoma. Studies show that the younger a woman was when she received radiation treatment, the higher her risk of breast cancer later in life.

normally it is seen in the age above 45 years...and mostly at 60 year The older a woman is when she has her first child, the greater her chance of breast cance. Women who had their first menstrual period before age 12 are at an increased risk of breast cance. Women who went through menopause after age 55 are at an increased risk of breast cancer Women who never had children are at an increased risk of breast cancer. Women who take menopausal hormone therapy with estrogen plus progestin after menopause also appear to have an increased risk of breast cancer.

I am female 70 years of age. I have no children . I started menopause at 56. I weigh 100 kgs and althought I try to lose weight I have a lot of fat around my waist. My question is after I eat even a small meal I feel bloated, I have leg pains in my upper thighs (a burning sensation) I was wondering if there is a chance I have ovarian cancer. What would my doctor do to diagnose this problem. (ie an internal examination)

I have dry mouth from taking WellbutrinXL. I have had sores in my mouth on the right side for the past 10 weeks. I have never smoked or drank alcohol. I had this in November too but 10 days of Keflex cleared it up. I took Keflex again 6 weeks ago and the condition improved but didn t go away. Is it throat cancer? I m a 60 year old female. (My father died at age 58 from toncil cancer but he smoked heavily) Thank you! Tricia

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

Hi, it has been a week now since I donated blood and there is terrible bruising along the side and right above where they placed the needle. There is also a stiff tightening pain as I move my arm that goes from my elbow up towards my shoulder. I ve taken aspirin and ibuprofen occasionally to try and ease the pain but nothing has helped. I even tried icing it on and off the first few days after, which was recommended by our American Red Cross donation center. Should I be concerned?

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.

My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.

Thank you.
