Can my heterozygotes status of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (21-Hydrolaxe deficiency, salt-wasting) explain hirsurtism & symptoms like polydipsia?

Maybe: Hydroxylase deficiency is actually a continuum, and there are many alleles. A workup is probably not worthwhile. Manage unwanted body hair with electrolysis or lasers -- you're doing yourself a favor. If your urinalysis (chemical, sediment), renal functions (BUN, creatinine) and concentrating ability (SG >1.020) while thirsty) are normal, I would not recommend further studies. ...Read more

I'm 77, a male, diagnosed with gynecomastia, (non-cancerous, tender lump size of walnut under one nipple).   Doctor wants to start tamoxifen.  Is this necessary?

Autonomy rules: If you are very sure this isn't male breast cancer (i'm going to assume it was biopsied), and it doesn't bug you, you're within your rights to have it left alone.
