THIS PAGE IS DEDICATED TO WOMEN ALL OVER THE WORLD!
WOMEN'S HEALTH ISSUES ARE SADLY LACKING, even now, even with the increase of awareness in our society. This page is dedicated to women all over the world. I encourage all of you to write to my e-mail address and let us, all of us, know what we can do to help. If you have suggestions, write them in an e-mail. I will try to put them up here. This is a family page and family web site, so no swear words or porno stuff, please.
You may ask questions about health, life, work. Try to keep sex out it for now. Some of these pages are for children to view, also. If you have comments on how you solved a problem at work, e-mail me. If you have a question about medicines or surgery or treatments due, write. Maybe we can help. This page is dedicated to you. Oh......there will not be so many graphics here.
As you know, mammograms are recommended for all women at least from the age of 20 or so, or earlier if already having children. How often should we have one? How often is safe? How much radiation is safe? Radiation is used to kill cancer cells. Can this type of radiation cause cancer in the female breasts? Can men get breast cancer? Well......there are many, many questions with many different answers. What is safe for one many not be safe for another. Yes, men can get breast cancer, not as often. Women are supposed to get mammograms every 1-2 years after 30 years old. If you are having multiple x-rays of you mouth or body, you may want to consult with your doctor about the amount of rads a year you should be exposed to. If the mammogram is done correctly the first time, there is less chance of excessive radiation to that area. If we move ourr bodies when placed on "the rack", so to speak, it must be done over. WE do not need the extra radiation.
