On the occasion of breast cancer screening and research awareness month, the teams of the Ville Verte Bouskoura Clinic are committed to informing about the importance of screening. These preventive events and actions are aimed at patients, carers and healthcare professionals.
Free screening and a “pink table” for the benefit of women
Clinique Ville Verte is organizing days dedicated to free breast cancer screening on October 14 and 21. The clinic therefore places its team of expert doctors at the service of women wishing to be screened.
To benefit from it, and for an optimal reception and management of this course, the clinic invites those interested to register by calling 05 22 51 23 23
During the same days, the Ville Verte Clinic is organizing a pink table hosted by health experts in its establishment around the importance of early detection. The objective of this meeting is above all an opportunity to make young women aware of preventive procedures and examinations but also to approach, in a fun way and through testimonials, the technique of self-examination of the breasts, the factors of risks of breast cancer or the importance of gynecological follow-up.
The “pink table” is open to anyone interested in the topic.
To increase awareness of the importance of the fight against breast cancer, the facade of the establishment will be dressed in pink light for two weeks.
One in eight women affected by breast cancer in her lifetime
The health crisis having disrupted everyone’s habits, many women have been forced to postpone their essential screening. Screening is a real “barrier gesture” against breast cancer. The latter is in fact still responsible for thousands of deaths per year. Because this corresponds to so many women to be saved, the Pink October awareness campaign deployed in the health establishments of Elsan aims to remind that screening in the early stages of the disease allows better care and increases the chances of survival. Care is progressing thanks to the development of screening and progress in treatment. Remember that detected at an early stage, breast cancer can be cured in 9 out of 10 cases.
Breast cancer screening
From the age of 50, breast cancer screening is recommended every 2 years. 80% of breast cancers occur after this age. Systematic screening can detect any disease before the first symptoms appear. Early detection will thus allow less burdensome, shorter and more effective medical treatment.
If screening is not recommended for women under 50 who are not considered at risk, it is nevertheless advisable to perform a clinical examination of the breasts by palpation once a year from the age of 25 years.
Each woman can also perform an autopalpation. It brings together a set of simple actions that, performed every month, after menstruation, allow you to get to know your breasts, detect any anomaly and report it to your doctor. Self-examination is another asset for his health. However, it does not replace a regular, at least annual visit to your gynecologist or doctor.
