Anal cancer

Do you know about anal cancer?
It is fairly rare, much less than colorectal cancer.
Sometimes rectal bleeding is the first sign of anal cancer, but people who have anal cancer usually think they have hemorrhoids.

True lump

Breast lumps are common symptom, and most lumps aren’t breast cancer.
Furthemore, even if you find a lump by yourself, it may not be a “true lump”.
The feel and texture of the breast is different one by one. And many women’s breasts feel lumpy.

Bowel habits

Bowel habits can vary from person to person,so I always ask our patients about their bowel movements (frequency, color, syape of stools, hard or soft or watery stools).
Sometimes they ask me “what is the ideal bowel habits by the way??”

Reconstructive mammoplasty

It is a method of surgery to rebuild the shape of women’s breast with self tissue or an artificial implant after removing all or part of a breast for treatment of the breast cancer.
In Japan, only self tissue transplant has been covered by national health insurance for long time but since July 2013, artificial breast implant has been covering as well.

Menstrual cycle & constipation

We confirm your menstrual cycle not only for breast care but also proctologic point of view.
It is because your bowel movement might become irregular and unstable due to menstrual cycle.
Before start period, progesterone hormone is secreted to reduce construction of the uterus.
This hormone restrict peristaltic motion of the colon as well, and then it cause constipation.

Day surgery

Previously, when I diagnosed my patients need to have surgical treatment, I told them to go to our cooperation hospitals having a surgical operation.

If they hoped for an operation by my performance, I adjusted to be able to do the operation in cooperation hospitals on Wednesday morning.

We prepared surgical equipment and started to perform day surgery here; mainly for Proctologic case.
