      Breast cancer is a major problem all over the world, and here, it is encouraged to do self-exams, even while young. You never know when it might strike. I was a late born, my mother never breast fed, and she smoked. She had cancer from mouth to anus when she died, but no in cadet of breast cancer according to the autopsy report, which I found very surprising.

      I liked you questions dealing with estrogen and progesterone. Many don't understand that the hormone treatment in ER/PR positive patients is for the purpose of reducing or eliminating the levels of these hormones. My wife's life was prolonged by years because of these drugs and it was a relatively high quality of life. The MCQ format was an effective way to present this information. Thanks for presenting this to us.
