WE SUPPORT PINK OCTOBER

breast cancer prevention awareness month. As many as 3,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Slovakia each year. This disease is treatable and curable if detected early thanks to regular mammography examination once in two years.

MAMMOGRAPHY can detect early stages of breast cancer in women with no symptoms. If you are 50 to 69 years old and you have not had a mammography examination yet, do not hesitate and go – increase your chance to live a longer and healthier life.

CANCER WELLNESS SYMPOSIUM

is an online conference organized by Indiana University School of Medicine which took place on September 22 and featured interesting lectures by renowned foreign speakers.

There were also testimonies by patients after cancer treatment who spoke about their personal experiences. Such experiences can inspire patients who are only at the beginning of their journey to recovery and improvement of quality of life with oncological diagnosis, those currently undergoing treatment or already cured patients looking for inspiration.

TESTICULAR CANCER

We are happy to introduce the latest ESMO guide for patients: TESTICULAR CANCER.

This type of cancer usually affects men aged 15 to 40. This oncological disease most often manifests as a lump in a testicle, pain, swelling or feeling of heavy scrotum. It usually develops in testicular cells, so-called germ cells.

The risk of development of this cancer is higher if a first-degree relative (father, brother or son) has been affected; the highest risk is if a twin brother or two family members have been affected.

Treatment success rate is high, as much as 90% of patients can be cured.

“ZDRAVÉ REČI” (HEALTH TALKS) PODCAST ABOUT ONCOLOGY SCREENINGS

Do not ignore routine check-ups nor invitations to breast cancer, cervical cancer or colorectal cancer screenings. The goal of oncology screening is to detect an oncological disease in an early, thus potentially curable stage via an effective diagnostic test which searches for individuals with asymptomatic diseases in the population who can be diagnosed. Learn more about the importance of screening programs in our podcast “Zdravé reči” with screening coordinator Jana Trautenberger Ricová from our Institute.
