Complex breast cancer screening
Breast cancer occurs in one out of ten women throughout their lives. Mammography is the most recommended method for screening for breast cancer for middle-aged and older women. In many cases, it can be life-saving because it can detect malignant breast lesions at an early, curable stage.
The complex breast diagnostic package includes mammographic imaging, palpation and ultrasound of the breasts. During the examination, the patient should be undressed from the waist up. During mammography, two x-rays of the breasts are taken from two directions, which take a few seconds. This time, you must remain motionless. Some discomfort can be caused by flattening the breasts between two plexiglass plates to obtain uniform thicknesses. On the other hand, breast ultrasound as an additional examination does not present any discomfort or health risk. The specialist will first palpate the area of the breast and axillary lymph nodes, and then apply a gel to the skin, moving the ultrasound probe up and down.
The examination is recommended in case of the following symptoms, complaints
- in case of no complaints every two years between ages 45-65
- in case of any lesions, lumps of skin, protrusion
