While most of the world may be concentrating on the COVID-19 virus as of late, there are other threats to people’s health you should pay attention to as well. One of which is breast cancer. Did you know that one out of 13 Filipinas are at risk of developing breast cancer in their lifetime?
Fortunately, you can take preventive steps so you can avoid the exuberant hospital bills for treatments. Aventus Medical Care Inc. is offering an affordable Mammogram and Breast Ultrasound package for only P2,700***. They are extending this rate until July 31, 2021.
Knowing people’s hesitance to visit medical clinics amid the pandemic, it’s best you schedule this in advance just to be safe. According to Cancer.org, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. There is a 2.6% chance that a woman will die from breast cancer. That’s about 1 out of 39 patients. Hence, if you have the financial means to do so, you should get tested.
Plus, the fact of the matter is that as you advance in age, the more at risk you are at getting breast cancer. 1 out of 8 invasive breast cancer cases occur in women that are under 45 years of age. The more advanced in age you get, the more health problems you might have. That’s why you should do what you can to avoid getting serious illnesses, like breast cancer.
