Aetna says that women over 70 years of age "can consider stopping pap tests and colonoscopy if previous results have been normal".  Mammograms:  every two years if previous tests have been normal.   I would appreciate your thoughts here.

I have been told if normal for three years in a row, and you had a hysterectomy, you can safely assume, you will be fine.  (But I still have my ovaries, even thought they were cut and tied, before, I had the hysterectomy (had tubular ligation in 76, and hysterectomy in 82, so my dr. is going to check further and give me an answer)

As far as mammograms, I would continue to do self exams, say on the first of every month, so you remember, Do standing and laying, just to be sure, and if anything is suspicious, or their is any drainage from nipples, dimpling around nipples, or a rash on brest, notify your doctor and tell him you want to be check.  I know a lady that found a small lump at 85 and has to have a masectomy, but it spread and she soon passed away, because it went into her bone already.

Some of the reason for this is that the cancers grow slow,  you would die before the cancer becomes a problem.

I only go for pre-checks to some colleages of mine using the adequate
machines, nothing else it is that safe and similar to normal check-ups...for example Meta-Scan or Global Diagnostics....here whithin 15 minutes you have the complete program and results about upcoming issues or will be able to undergo preventive treatments............

Thank you to all.  You have helped me to solidify my position regarding this matter...I will just remain super-compliant on the Hunter plan, continue taking NAP supps ie, ARA6, Intrinsa, PolyFlora & Hunter 3-pack, continue to excercise daily and rest assured that I will live out the days granted to me in the best possible way.  My skin tissue has become so much thinner that it was when I was younger so I'm concerned about getting a perforated colon from the colonoscopy probe.  I have had some minor surgery in the past and it never seems to result in perfection so I hesitate to have doctors mess with me too much.
