DEAR DR. GOTT: I read a newspaper advertisement for ultrasound tests of the heart and arteries - echocardiogram (ultrasound) and electrocardiogram (EKG). Both tests can be performed for $135. Additionally, carotid-artery ultrasound, abdominal-aortic ultrasound and blood-circulation testing can be performed for $95. Are all these tests desirable and worthwhile for a 72-year-old male like me?

DEAR DR. GOTT: I have had a lipoma below my left breast for about five years. It is the size of a small lemon, and there is no pain or discomfort. It is firm and on my bra line. My primary-care physician said nothing need be done; some people have many. Should I be concerned? If it is removed, how is that done? Where? By what kind of physician? I'm 67 and have always enjoyed good health.
