Thank you to dr bennett warner. For re laying to my sickness just for last time last monday I did heart cath is clear forth one in 10 years sir?

Not sure of your?: I'm not certain what you're asking but if you're asking if a normal heart cath means that you will be normal for the next 10 years, it does not. A heart cath should not be mistaken for a crystal ball. No one can predict the future. If your cath is completely normal tho, at 43, you must be living a healthy lifestyle and that bodes well for the future. Best of luck! ...Read more

Dr. Bennett; What type of malignancy did you have in mind, that causes (different than before) body odor under one armpit, please?

Dr. Bennett; What type of malignancy did you have in mind, that causes (different than before) body odor under one armpit, please?

None: There is NO malignancy that would cause an odor in only one armpit. Odors here are from bacteria that live on the skin, mixing with sweat from the glands surrounding the hairs. The sweat odor can be affected by emotion, but not in only one pit! Keep very clean, wipe the pits with alcohol if you like, let dry then follow with a good deodorant containing aluminum chlorhydrate. Good luck! ...Read more
