According to the current statistics of the Robert Koch Institut in Germany, cancer develops annually in more than 230,000 women. The cancer of reproductive system makes up almost half of all oncological diseases in women:
- 35.6% – breast cancer;
- 5.5% – uterine body cancer;
- 4.8% – ovarian cancer;
- 3.1% – cervical cancer.
Regular preventive mammologic and gynecological check-up is very important in the early detection of breast cancer and cervical cancer. The chances for a complete cure are significantly increased when these diseases are detected in the initial stages. The gold standard for the preventive cancer screening in women, along with mammography, is a gynecological smear. A swab taken from the cervical canal is a so-called “cellular sampling” and allows to assess the state of the flora, the presence of pathogens (bacteria, fungi) and malignant neoplasms. An important diagnostic role in the cancer prevention is played by PAP test (cytology) and HPV test, revealing atypical cells and the presence of Human Papillomavirus.
PREVENTIVE HEALTH CARE GUIDELINES 2016 by an independent American expert commission U.S. Preventive Services Task recommends women over 20 years old to undergo gynecological check-up every year for early detection of cervical cancer. After 30 years, in addition to the abovementioned diagnostics to undergo the annual mammologic exam to exclude signs of a tumor. After 40 years, mammogram should be performed every two years.
Diagnostic equipment for gynecological and mammologic check-up of the PRADUS center corresponds to the latest innovations in medicine and technology. During the gynecological examination all existing non-invasive examination methods, ultrasound sensors with high resolution for vaginal, abdominal and thoracic survey, as well as digital X-ray, MRI and CT devices are used.
