    If otherwise healthy, with no breast masses or increased risk factors for breast cancer, you should get mammograms annually starting at age 40.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is a hernia?

    A hernia is a tear in the fascia-the thin but strong tissue overlying the muscles – allowing the intestines to bulge through the abdominal wall under the skin, or in the case of a Hiatal hernia, allow the stomach to move partially into the chest.

  2. What causes hernias?

    All hernias can be caused by forceful pressure on the area. Abdominal wall and groin hernias can develop during pregnancy, or as a consequence of heavy lifting at the job or at the gym. Obesity and chronic cough are contributing factors as are constipation and enlarged prostrate causing difficult defecation and urinating.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is Hidradenitis Suppurativa?

    Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a painful skin condition with pimple like lesions that enlarge into abscesses and drain prurulent fluid. The most common sites involved are the axillae, groin, inner thighs, inframammary folds, and gluteal fold.

  2. What are the causes of Hidradenitis Suppurativa?

    The exact cause of HS is unknown but it is caused by a blockage of the sweat glands and hair follicles in areas of perspiration, bacteria colonization and friction. HS can be hereditary and is exacerbated by excess hair and obesity. Estrogen may play a role in outbreaks in women.
