Byvoeging by vorige inligting - prostese

Aangesien daar kalsifikasie was met die uithaal van 1ste prostese, moes ek ses maande wag voordat volgende prostese ingesit was. Is kalsifikasie ' n groter risiko/kans vir borskanker?

Ek is 57jr oud en gebruik al 11jr die hormoonplakker Evorel 75mg. Ek weet dis nie goed om so lank dit te gebruik nie maar blykbaar in my geval is dit wel. Ek is osteopenies, het hoë  (familiê re) cholestrol en het iskemiese hartvatsiekte - aorta redelik verkalk

Sodra ek plakker los kry ek erge gloede. Sal graag wil hoor wat u mening oor alles is.

Baie dankie.

Hi Ansie/Mirtie?

There are a great number of different forms of calcifications and different reasons for them in breast health and disease. One would have ot see the mammography to comment.

In my opinion, HRT (hormone replacement) increases the breast cancer risk only marginally if at all. you seem to have medical indications as well as quality of life issues indicating the use of HRT and as such it may be better to continue with HRT.
