Cancer Screening

Among the important cancers seen in women are breast cancer, uterine wall, cervical cancer and ovarian cancer. The first step is for women to follow themselves and notice the changes in themselves. Of course, regular checkups come right after. Mammography and breast ultrasonography for breast cancer, smear and HPV tests for cervical cancer are important and these tests should be performed at the recommended regular intervals. In terms of cervical cancer, HPV vaccine is also recommended from a young age. The most important symptom of uterine wall cancer is menstrual irregularity or bleeding in menopause. There is no screening test in ovarian cancer, but regular follow-ups are important for early diagnosis.
