Literally in September, doctors examined 104 patients and revealed 2 cases of the disease. Early diagnosis is the key to successful treatment, so oncologists recommend having a mammogram at least once every two years. You can be examined in clinics at the place of residence as part of the medical examination, as well as during breast health days on similar events.
The “My First Mammography” campaign was organized as part of the Women's Health social program and has been implemented in the Belgorod Region since 2017 with the support of the regional government and Metalloinvest. During this time, three new mammography devices were acquired. And since June this year, early diagnosis of breast cancer has been carried out thanks to the integrated system "Telemedicine", acquired for the Central District Hospital of Gubkin.
