Persona offers free breast screening in new clinic for cancer awareness month

Breast screening consultations, self-examination and a mammogram can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this year, Persona Med-Aesthetic Centre is inviting women to visit for a free breast screening consultation in their recently opened Breast Clinic. Free consultations with their Consultant Breast Surgeon are available throughout October.

“Breast cancer awareness month is a great time to remind women about the importance of regular screenings, self-breast examination and knowledge of your familial history of cancer,” says Kate Demanuele, General Manager at Persona Med-Aesthetic Centre.

”By offering free screenings in October, we hope to raise awareness and contribute to prevention and early detection – when the chance of successful treatment is best and the survival rate is highest.”

Breast cancer is the most common type of non-skin cancer in women, accounting for 14% of all new cases. However, deaths from breast cancer are declining every year for the past several years. In a recent study, the five-year survival rate for those diagnosed with breast cancer was 84%.

Routine medical care is important for staying healthy. Many women can survive breast cancer if it’s detected and treated early. Breast screening consultations, self-examination and a mammogram can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

To book your free breast screening consultation, contact Persona Med-Aesthetic Centre on 21 340 366 or [email protected] Appointments are given on a first-come, first-served basis.
