Md said not to worry about low (7.5) free psa. Is this true or should I see a urologist? 60yrs. Normal psa for age.

This : This really depends on what your total psa is. If your total psa is between 4 and 10 it is more significant as the lower your free psa, the higher the likelihood of prostate cancer. If your psa is less than 4, the free psa is really not that important. ...Read more

Md was able 2 free/unblock my rt fallopian tube only but said he couldn't guarantee it would function. Is there anythng I can do?

Md was able 2 free/unblock my rt fallopian tube only but said he couldn't guarantee it would function. Is there anythng I can do?

Genetic testing of your mthfr status could be helpful. ...Read more

Why would you as an md sign up for this.

Why would you as an md sign up for this.

Public service: I like the idea of a community of physicians providing patients with reliable information about medical topics they're asking about. I joined to contribute public service, to both educate and learn, and in general, to affect people positively. Lots of questions can be answered simply, relieving anxiety or prompting to helpful resources. I'm sure others have more reasons. Thanks for asking. ...Read more
