Cancer is a problem that can affect anyone irrespective of age and gender, however, early diagnosis and prompt treatment can help to cure and manage the problem effectively. Women usually tend to take the signs and symptoms for granted until the problem reaches an advanced stage and becomes incurable. The leading cause of this is the lack of proper knowledge about cancer. Cancer screening is a means by which you can secure your future and win your fight against cancer as this helps to detect the signs of any malignancy even before it has started to show its symptoms. This helps the doctors to target the cancer cells while they are still localized i.e. they have not metastasized.
Some of the most common cancers that affect women include breast, colorectal, endometrial, lung, cervical and ovarian cancers. At Zeeva, we resort to the use of the latest cutting-edge technology complemented by the skills and expertise of our specialists to detect a broad spectrum of cancers in females. It is pertinent to note that effective screening tests are those which alleviate the risks of the death from cancer and have more benefits than harm. Each and every procedure that we offer is planned, keeping your safety and well-being at the epicentre.
About 98 per cent of women suffering from breast cancer live a long and healthy life when diagnosed early. A mammogram is the most popular screening test for detecting breast cancer. It helps to generate an x-ray image of the breasts so as to find out any lumps, adhesions and malformations which might be an indication of breast cancer.
Studies have shown that nearly 85 per cent of the cases are women who do not have a family history of breast cancer. Hence it is important to go for regular cancer screening whether you have a family history of the same or not.
Two of the most common screening tests used to diagnose cervical cancer include Pap smear and HPV (human papillomavirus) test. The former involves the examination of a tissue sample taken from the patient’s cervix to check for the presence of abnormal cells whereas the latter involves the examination of the tissue samples for the traces of 13–14 of the most common high-risk HPV types.
Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer, however, early detection of the premalignant polyps can help to significantly alleviate the morbidity from the disease. Some of the common screening tests used for detecting colorectal cancer include a double-contrast barium enema (DCBE), computed tomography colonography (CTC), flexible sigmoidoscopy and optical colonoscopy. Unlike the other tests that are to be repeated after a gap of 5 years, optical colonoscopy is to be repeated after an interval of 10 years.
