Both MTFs and FTMs may be at higher risk for liver problems. MTFs may develop pituitary problems, and FTMs may run a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. Will VA provide screening for these potential problems as part of the provided health care services in light of these increased risks?

If your VA health care provider prescribes estrogen, then he or she will likely provide whatever lab work and mammography is deemed necessary.  The likelihood of receiving such care is greater following SRS/GRS/GCS.
