CLEVELAND  - It seems as if there's a new health concern for women all the time. It's easy to get confused and it's hard to figure out what is in your best interest.

Linda Bradley, a gynecologist with the Cleveland Clinic, spoke with Fox 8's Brittany Harris about what to do to take care of your health.

"Doctors cannot do every test, there's thousands of tests. We have to individually look at someone. I look at you or any of my patients like a snowflake or a thumb print, your story is one of a kind," said Bradley.

Your age and family history largely plays into your health risks.

Bradley also adds that African-American and multicultural women may be more prone to issues like obesity, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and even gout.

Bradley says all women should have routine appointments to communicate with their doctor and catch any issues early on when they're able to.
