Cervical cancer screening

It is recommended to undergo gynaecologic cancer screening once a year, even if there are no symptoms. The screening of cervical cancer can be performed with the best safety, with cytological examination of the samples from the surface of the cervix and the cervical canal. Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection appears to be a necessary factor in the development of almost all cases of cervical cancer. Nowadays we are striving at the prevention of cervical cancer. In spite of the primary prevention possibility - vaccination - the conventional cytologic examination is still necessary; women should seek yearly visit at the gynaecologist, even if they have no symptoms.  More frequent check-ups are necessary if by a previous screening pre-cancer condition has been revealed, regardless whether histologic sample has been collected or not.

Breast screening

Breast screening is made routinely by palpation. The breast glands are best palatable in the first half of the menstruation cycle, that’s why it is recommended to undergo this examination one week after the menstruation. Should familiar or individual medical history or any suspicion necessitate, the ultrasound examination of the breasts can be performed.

Examination of ovaries

Palpation is not suitable for the screening of ovarian cancer, because the ovarian tumour cannot be palpated with 100% safety; nearly half of the ovarian cancer cases cannot be healed if symptoms already appeared; consequently prevention is the most important. Should ovarian or breast cancer occur in the ascending line or any suspicion in the individual’s medical history, vaginal ultrasound examination and blood test can be necessary.
