A new era in breast cancer diagnosis
Although breast cancer is the fearful dream of women, when diagnosed early thanks to advanced imaging techniques, 98% of patients can be successfully treated, and even their breasts may not need to be removed. However, while breast cancer was perceived as a disease of postmenopausal women in the past, this perception is starting to change with the increase in the number of people diagnosed in their 20s. That’s why early detection saves lives for everyone, at any age. Radiology Specialist Dr. In our interview with Ali Yurtlak, we talked about the new technology TomoSonography used for breast cancer and its early detection.
For early diagnosis, monthly hand control and annual doctor control are recommended starting from adolescence. For women after the age of 40, these controls are performed with mammography and ultrasound.
THE AGE OF THE DISEASE IS IMPORTANT
If you are under the age of 40, only manual control is recommended, and the person who has a suspicious formation is asked to apply to his doctor and have it checked with ultrasound. Since conventional manual ultrasound is a long and laborious method in breast control, it could not be recommended regularly as a screening system from a young age, but could be applied as needed. This increases the frequency of encountering late cancer diagnoses.
