Why not just get rid of it?

Its been suggested that because of my high rick for cancer just get rid of it. Your know have surgery, take it out. Everything will be better without the risk right.

No, I have Pulmonary Hypertension. Pulmonary Hypertension is high blood pressure of the lungs. Take a look at http://www.SometimesItsPH.org

The site give a good definition of PH. I have many of the symptoms. Anyone can be diagnosed of PH. About half the people I met at the last convention are on oxygen. I have many PH symptoms but so far am not on oxygen.

I had complications with being put to sleep for surgery because of PH. My doctors have said its better for me to avoid surgery when possible. So I am not a candidate for any cancer prevention surgery.

I was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension the same time I was diagnosed with right side heart failure. But thats another post.
