CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Judith McKenzie is seeing patients who would benefit from a daily aspirin.
Aspirin reduces risk of death from heart attack and stroke. Aspirin can also prevent certain cancers and slow the growth of existing tumors.
Heart disease, stroke risk and cancers can go undetected for years since each of these conditions may cause no symptoms.
Aspirin is not without risk and is not appropriate for everyone, so see your doctor to discuss whether daily aspirin is right for you.
