Do I need to rip up entire bathroom floor to replace broken lead pipes

We have a small bathroom (sink, toilet, small tub) on the second floor of our house that hasn't been touched since original construction (sometime in the 1950's). When using any of the three bathroom fixtures, water leaks through the ceiling below (just started last night after plunging the toilet). A plumber came out, took a look and said we'd need to rip up the entire floor as the pipes are all lead and the only solution is to remove entirely and replace with something newer. This sounds odd and expensive. Any advice/suggestions?

Brief water leak through ceiling track lighting-- what now?

Clueless new homeowners here. After a shower and a use of the toilet upstairs, water started dripping through a screw on the track lighting in the kitchen. It started maybe 10 minutes afterwards and lasted maybe 10 minutes, maybe a cup or so of water total, then stopped. What happened? What do we do now? Call a plumber, presumably, but how urgent? An electrician too? Is there danger because of the light fixture? [more inside]
