From time to time, we all come up against personal health problems that we're reluctant to mention to anyone - even our doctors. They might be embarassing, owing to where they occur in the body; they could be trivial, or mainly cosmetic, but are none the less troubling; or the symptoms could be so deeply disturbing that we hesitate to bring them to the attention of a medical professional for fear of what they may indicate. If you are: experiencing sexual difficulties or genito-urinary problems; bothered about rashes, unwanted hair, body odours, wind or snoring; or worried about a lump or a growth, wounds failing to heal or unexplained bleeding, let "The Which? Guide to Personal Health" be your medically qualified confidant. In question-and-answer form, the book provides reassurance and advice that is easy to understand and to act upon. It gives you the key facts to your condition and the confidence to decide whether you should seek help. The author, Dr Ann Robinson, has over ten years' experience as a GP and a medical columnist. She offers possible solutions to real concerns - the ones she knows, from her own patients and her many readers, that people worry about most. Her book deals with health matters at all stages of life, from conception to old age, and covers both physical and psychological issues. "The Which? Guide to Personal Health" discusses treatment options and preventive measures, and tells you how to interpret test results, find specialists and contact useful organizations.
