One out of every 11 to 12 women will be affected by breast cancer. Preventive check-ups and self-examination are important. Women postponed preventive care especially in the past two years affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prevention is important

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women. It affects roughly one in 11 to 12 women. Thanks to regular screening, however, the number of women whose tumours are caught in the very early stages of the disease is increasing. With early detection, the chance of a complete cure is nearly 100%. Every woman over the age of 45 is entitled to a preventive screening mammogram with a valid request from a doctor, and women over the age of 40 prefer a preventive ultrasound (sonography) breast examination. This preventive care is also available to younger self-payers, who most frequently come for an examination after feeling a lump or having one pointed out to them by their partner.

Accurate and safe

There is no need to be concerned about getting a mammogram. Modern mammography machines are very gentle and provide patients with maximum comfort. In addition to that, the examination involves the use of only the lowest dose of radiation necessary in diagnostic radiology, which means the level of radiation exposure is similar to that of flying. The radiation dose is therefore not harmful to human health, as it is by far the lowest in comparison with other radiological examinations.

Thanks to breast compression and high-quality digital image processing, mammography is considered to be the most accurate available method for detecting early-stage breast cancer. An ultrasound examination is not a substitute for mammography, though it is appropriate as a supplementary means of achieving even more effective results.

Clients can newly visit the Waltrovka Mammography Centre, which is located in the same building as the Canadian Medical clinic in Prague 5. The benefits of this facility are, in particular, short waiting times and a modern environment that guarantees maximum comfort.
