Diagnóstica Social is holding their annual breast cancer awareness medical operative

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to raise awareness Diagnóstica Social has a special offer on Mammograms and Sonomammograms so that all women can afford to get themselves checked. A sonomammogram is a sonogram that is performed in addition to the mammogram (x-ray of breast tissue) for better breast cancer detection. It is a breast ultrasound that is a non-invasive procedure to assess the breasts and the blood flow to areas inside it.

Every year, the Oncology Institute Dr. Heriberto Pieter in Santo Domingo has been collecting data for the hospital’s registry of tumors, and it has become one of the main statistical sources on cancer occurrence and treatment data in the Dominican Republic. According to last year’s statistics, in our country breast cancer is the most frequent, followed by cancer of the cervix, prostate, skin, and colon. In younger women, there was an increase in incidence, 14.48% in the age group between 31 and 40 years. Mammograms and sonography can detect a potential problem BEFORE you may be able to feel any kind of lump. 

The Diagnóstica Social, which can be found inside Central Romana, next to the main Central Romana Hospital/medical center, is offering Mammograms and Sonomammograms services every day for the whole month of October. To accommodate you, even more, you can call in and schedule an appointment! If you don’t have insurance you only have to pay RD$500 and if you do, you do not have to pay the difference!!

  • Mammogram: RD$500
  • Sonomammograms: RD$500

It is recommended that women over 40 years of age have a mammogram every year. Although women under 40 are considered ‘low risk’ and some doctors claim that mammograms do not work on younger women, as the breast tissue is less dense, younger women can still have these tests to be sure! 

Don’t forget to take some time off your busy schedule and get checked, remember early detection is key in the treatment of breast cancer.
