Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Hi and welcome. What are your questions?

I see a few and will answer them.

Drs are reluctant to send you for an MRI since it will not be helpful for the conditions you describe and it is very expensive.

Most cancers are not detectable with a blood test.

Let me know what question you have and I'll try to help.
