Prevention and After-Care
We include an annual cancer screening as an important part of prevention.
Starting with age 20, we recommend an annual pap smear for cervical cancer screening and a test for human papillomavirus which often causes cervical cancer and its precursors. Usually a pelvic ultrasound is also performed.
In addition, we conduct manual breast examinations and, if needed, do a breast ultrasound.
Cancer follow-up care should focus on the care of the organ affected. We focus thus primarily on physical symptoms, perform physical examinations and corresponding ultrasounds, as well as important staging examinations such as mammograms, CT, PET-CT, and bone scans, etc.
