Breast disease

Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer in females in the developed countries and its occurrence is constantly growing. It can be detected before any lump can be felt. Most commonly it is found in women aged 55-65, but there are local differences, and also younger women may be affected. The breast cancer risk is 1:8 -10. The risk factors include: age, nulliparity (a condition or state in which a woman has never given birth to a child), history of breast cancer in the family, estrogen effects, and obesity. If you find any abnormality or a lump in your breast, do not become panic-stricken. The majority of breast lumps are harmless. Approximately three out of four lumps (75%), believed at first to be cancerous, are benign cysts, fibromas or lipomas that are easily diagnosed and treated.

 

Depending on the decision of our diagnostic radiologists, removal of benign/non-cancerous breast tumors is made in this hospital within the program of one day surgery.

 

This sanatorium provides a complex preventive medical treatment for women, including cases of pathological findings (core cut biopsy and benign breast tumor surgery). As the only of its kind, this sanatorium has integrated - within its complex gynecological and preventive care services - also a radiology unit aimed at breast disease diagnostics. The sanatorium has a newly built mammography facility equipped with the top medical imaging technology,  digital Siemens mammographic device, top ultrasound device with a special probe for high quality breast tissue imaging, and an experienced staff specialized in mammogram diagnostics. The hospital provides preventive and diagnostic mammographic screening not only to our patients but also to the general public.  Screening requirements: mammographic screening recommendation by a gynecologist, general practitioner, surgeon or oncologist. The best time for screening is the period in the first half of your menstrual cycle.
