{PostingDate} - Maybe you have constant pelvic pain. Or you suffer from heavy bleeding from the uterus. For these symptoms and others, a hysterectomy may help. But this major surgery isn’t without risks. What’s more, many women who have a hysterectomy may not need one, suggests a recent finding.
{PostingDate} - Despite its popularity, yoga is no exercise fad. The practice has been around for thousands of years.

This perk may even extend to the heart, suggests a recent review.

But we’re still eating too many, according to recent research.
{PostingDate} - Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can be hard to diagnose—no simple test can detect it. The disorder can be even harder to treat. Stomach cramping, diarrhea, constipation—these symptoms may come and go. And what may work to relieve them for one person may not work for someone else.
{PostingDate} - Deciding on treatment for prostate cancer can be a challenge. Men with early stage disease have a number of choices. And according to recent research, it isn’t always clear which treatment may be best.
