  • I'm sorry I can't help you out. My mother has it. Did/Does yours? It is inherited in many cases. So if anyone in your family had it you have a better chance...

  • My best friend has it, and she had to have surgery done to make sure she had it. They just cut a slit like under her belly button and ran a tube to see if she had it. Then when they confirmed she DID have it, they had surgery again to remove it. I don't know if there's another way to find out if you have it or not, but that's just what they did with her.
