Can low estrogen level cause an indentation on the forehead?

I had stage 3 ovarian cancer 2 years ago -went through chemotherapy, recurred and went through major debulking surgery again, last year.Anyway- I developed an indent in my forehead that is really odd- nothing where any injury happened- it follows next to a vein that goes down my forehead- I wondered if it could be related to lack of estrogen? But I m on an estrogen patch so am getting some. I have both BrCA mutations & my tumor was estrogen negative- not affected by estrogen hence I can be on some estrogen.Thanks- PS: I m 58

You have to check first that your tumor not spread to skull bone by CT skull. other possibilities like local Infection or hyper parathyroid disease or meningioma with bone erosion to be ruled out. Please consult your physician/ neurologist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

I am 31 yrs old, 2 children ages 4 & 2, natural births. I was recently given a blood test, urine test because I have been spotting, blood clots for almost 4 weeks now. My menstrual cycles have always been 4-6 days. I started taking setraline (zoloft) about 3 months ago. My thyroid came back normal, not pregnant, not anemic but my estrogen levels were really low...should I be concerned, It hasn t been going away or is there another test I should look into?? Should I ask to be given hormones??

I recently had my hormone levels checked which indicated very low levels of estrogen and progesterone. I have been receiving the Deporalovera injection for seven years. In that time I have progressively gained weight. Is this a direct cause and what can I do, hormone wise, to lose weight?
