Our expert says:
Women need to do yearly pap smears and breast examination and you have to watch out for changes in moles or spots on the skin. If you have a family history of cancer ( e.g. colon cancer) you can do yearly checks for blood in the stool. Pain in the lower L area of the abdomen could be related to the colon (spastic colon or infection), or inflammation in the pelvis, or urinary tract related and your doctor should have a look at these areas to exclude any disease.
