3. My sister and I have both had issues with tumors on our parathyroid which causes your body to overproduce calcium which can cause bone loss, memory impairment, and other issues. We have both had surgery to remove these tumors, which are usually non-cancerous but can be extremely harmful to your overall health if not treated/removed. Have you ever heard of tumors like these?
