The more information any specialist has about your previous history and workups the better job he/she will be able to do. ...Read more

A good rule of thumb : If you have to wonder if something hurts or not then it doesn't hurt. Likewise if a sensation or self examination isn't unpleasant and there's nothing new (like a lump or skin lesion) then you're ok! ...Read more
