Understanding Breast Calcifications DEAR DR. DONOHUE: The receptionist at my doctor’s office called to give me the report on a mammogram I had taken. She said that it showed calcifications and that the doctor wanted it repeated in six months. Why? Are calcifications indications of cancer? If they are, I’d like to get this taken care of immediately. I am becoming a nervous wreck thinking about this. -- H.M. ANSWER: When tests don’t provide a definite answer, everyone suffers -- the patient, the doctor of the patient and the doctor who interpreted the test. Calcifications are the perfect example. They’re calcium specks. When the doctor interpreting the mammogram sees them, he or she bases their importance on their number, their shape, their size and the pattern they make. With those criteria, the doctor usually can say whether they indicate cancer. Noncancerous calcifications might result from a bump to the breast to which you paid little attention. Or a minor breast infection could have caused them. If the doctor feels that evidence points more in the direction of cancer, then he or she will ask for an immediate biopsy. If the doctor feels more certain that they are not cancer signs but is not completely certain about that call, a repeat examination at a later date is a reasonable position to take. Neither the interpreting doctor nor your personal doctor would ask for a delay if there was any chance that the inaction would harm your health. The pamphlet on breast cancer gives the approach to diagnosing and treating it. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 1101W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four

••• DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My thighs are loaded with cellulite. What is it, and how can I get rid of it? -- M.T. ANSWER: Cellulite is beneath-the-skin fat that forms small puckers due to crisscrossing fibers similar to but not the same as scar-tissue fibers. The fiber-puckered fat gives the involved skin a lumpy-bumpy appearance. Laser treatments, radiofrequency wave treatments and ultrasound have been used for removing cellulite. These are cosmetic procedures and likely are not covered by insurance. Innumerable creams are advertised for cellulite reduction, but I can’t tell you if they work. I would be cautious about trying any that are costly. Weight loss makes cellulite less obvious. You are best served by consulting a dermatologist. ••• DEAR DR. DONOHUE: For the past several days, my left eyelid has been twitching. There’s no pain. It does not affect my vision. Does it mean anything? -- T.P. ANSWER: Not usually. Eyelid twitches result from spasms of muscles controlling eyelid movement. It’s intermittent and lasts for a few days, at most. Fatigue, stress and caffeine have been implicated as causes. I have had such twitching, at times when I was neither tired nor stressed nor drinking caffeine. If the twitching is bothersome, soak a washcloth in warm water and apply it to the closed eyelid. If twitching lasts longer than a week or two, see the family doctor. ••• Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. © 2012 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved

Prosthetic Limb Study The House Committee on Veterans Affairs asked the VA Office of Inspector General to review and evaluate how services are being provided to veterans who have had amputations. The study was limited to 838 veterans discharged from active service after Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation New Dawn. Here’s what it found: --The majority were between the ages of 22 and 25, enlisted male veterans. --The rates of some disorders increased after discharge. Anxiety disorders rose from 42 percent to 61 percent. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder rates increased from 31 percent to 58 percent. Alcohol disorders rose from 7 percent to 11 percent. Drug disorders, however, and adjustment disorders decreased. --Veterans with upper limb amputations didn’t fare as well as those with lower limb amputations in terms of psychosocial adjustment, physical ability and prosthetic satisfaction. --Veterans with amputations and prostheses are “significant users” of Department of Veterans Affairs health services, and not just for the prostheses: 99 percent use VA health care for all medical needs. The comments at the end of the report are telling.

One veteran commented on the lengthy process to get a prosthesis made by an outside vendor and have the VA approve and pay for it. Another makes his own repairs to his prosthesis to cut through the VA red tape. Another veteran goes out of his way to avoid using VA care, saying most of the staff doesn’t understand upper limb amputations. Some veterans are waiting six months for an appointment and then have to travel long distances. Another has had a clothing issue for years and hadn’t been able to get help until the OIG stepped in. To read the 88-page report, go to va.gov and search for Prosthetic Limb Care in VA Facilities. Write to Freddy Groves in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

• It was American humorist Evan Esar who defined a zoo as "an excellent place to study the habits of human beings." • The New York Times Best Seller list was first published on April 9, 1942. Since that time, only eight authors have managed to have books place No. 1 on both the fiction and nonfiction lists. Those who have accomplished that feat include Ernest Hemingway, Jimmy Buffett, William Styron, Dr. Seuss and John Steinbeck. • If you're planning a trip to New Orleans, you might want to keep in mind the following law: It's illegal in that city to curse a firefighter while he or she is engaged in official duties. • America's first vending machines were found in New York City train stations; they dispensed gum. • In a 1982 issue of the magazine American Film, a writer named Chuck Ross claimed that he retyped the screenplay to the 1942 film "Casablanca," changing only the title and one of the character's names, and submitted it to 217 agencies. Of the 85 who responded, only eight recognized it as "Casablanca," though it seemed familiar to another 25. Three of the agencies thought it might be commercially viable, while one thought it should be turned into a novel. The Oscar-wining screenplay was rejected outright by 38 of the agencies. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.
