Menopause Relief

More than 50 million women in the United States will be over the age of 51, the average age that menopause occurs.

Women who experience leakage from their bladders or have the “got to go” feeling at inconvenient times are not alone. The problem, though embarrassing for some, is more common – and treatable – than many women realize.

5 Signs of Bladder Cancer that Women Should Know (Not all UTI's are created equal...)

Even if you're vigilant about getting routine GYN care, bladder cancer may not really be on your radar. After all, it's far more common among men than women, and the majority of cases affect patients over age 65. But don't let those stats keep you from learning to spot the symptoms. Many people mistakenly think bladder cancer is only a disease of older men, but there are more than 18,000 women who are diagnosed with this cancer every year in the United States.
