"Breast cancer screenings, for instance, are just as necessary for cisgender (nontrans) and transgender women over age 50, but can often be denied coverage by insurers if a woman's birth gender is listed as "male," notes the Journal. Alternatively, for example, certain trans men are unique among men for potentially needing cervical cancer screenings, but could be denied coverage if they had previously updated their medical records to reflect their authentic male gender."  -- advocate.com

Mike,

An excellent article!  Feel that diagnoses and treatment should be based on BODY PARTS, NOT GENDER.  

PLEASE, everyone, read this article . . . your health may depend on it!
