On the borderline: Here's a good article that explains possible reasons. You are right at the low end of normal, so don't worry. All is likely fine, but you might want to watch it and other signs of a problem. Hope all is good! http://www.Buzzle.Com/articles/low-body-temperature-causes.Html.

Often does: Many risk factors for vascular disease (stroke, heart attack, peripheralvascualr disease) like hypertension, diabetes, and high cholesterol tend to run in families, and there are some fairly rare genetic syndromes (eg. Cadasil) that cause strokes in particular.

Bladder Cancer test: Bta is a test for recurrent bladder cancer & needs only 3 drops of urine to be run in the 5 minute test. It has too many false positives to be used as screen for first (primary) screen bladder cancer. At age 23 i cannot imagine you have already been treated for bladder cancer yet--if so-- then you would be monitored with the bta test--a test which measures tumor associated antigens in the urine.
