Breast cancer early detection program
Identifying persons with the highest genetic risk of breast cancer gives us the opportunity to establish an early diagnosis through a specific monitoring program in addition to providing a more effective treatment.
Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among women worldwide (with the exception of skin tumors). It is the second most common after lung cancer. Some 22,000 cases a year, the majority between the ages of 35 and 80, with a maximum range between 45 and 65 are diagnosed in Spain.
Early diagnosis and greater public awareness on prevention along with the improvement of specific treatments have played an important role in obtaining increasingly better results in terms of survival and disease control when it is diagnosed at an early stage.
iTAcC offers a complete program for Early Diagnosis of Breast Cancer. Periodic controls are recommended from the age of 35, regardless of the absence of symptoms.
If you detect any of the following signs:
- The appearance of a lump in the breast or armpit.
- Redness or shrinkage of the skin
- Bloody discharge from the nipple
Consult a specialist.
iTAcC schedules a genetic study to identify an increased genetic risk of developing the disease by establishing a specific surveillance program and an early diagnosis when there is a history of the disease. This allows for acting in a more effective manner when treating this type of cancer.
