Hot flashes that bedevil many women in menopause might actually be a good thing, depending on when they strike, according to new data from a long-running government study.
Women in their 40s with a moderately high family risk of breast cancer should get yearly mammograms, a new British study suggests.

A recent Study from Italy looked at the cosmetic outcomes of different types of skin closures after cesarean section.
Even a moderate amount of weight loss can go a long way toward relieving symptoms of female urinary incontinence in obese women.
A 2009 study by the University of California, San Francisco showed that women who lost as little as eight percent of their body weight experienced an average 47% reduction in episodes of both stress incontinence and urge incontinence, with some seeing the number of incontinence episodes drop by an astounding 70%.
