A breast care cancer centre of the Spizhenko Clinic offers an end-to-end care pathway for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Every woman who decided to take care of her health together with our specialists gets an individual program of primary and regular preventive examination. Taking into account such data as age, family’s medical history (that can be one of the first lines of defense in preventing cancer), inherited genetic mutations, the presence of children and a number of other indicators, the mammologist forms a «package» of necessary studies and participates in monitoring the patient’s health throughout the duration of the collaboration.

Most of the preventive measures include mammography, ultrasound and MRI of the mammary glands, and laboratory studies, including the study of the genetic predisposition to the disease.
