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.


Dense breast

We call breasts with high density mammary gland as “dense breast”.
Mammary gland looks white on mammography, and it is the same as cancer.
Which means it is not always easy to detect lesions only by mammography if your breasts are dense breast.
Density of mammary gland will be decrease with age but the ratio of dense breast is high among Asian postmenopausal women.

Occult blood test

Have you had a medical checkup already in this year and have you looked at your diagnostics result carefully?
Some of you might have received “+” as a result of occult blood test.
This result is not always true that you have serious health issue such as colorectal cancer; you might have hemorrhoids (some of patients have no subjective symptoms and it is very common) or other disease.
Some of you just ignore the result for years believing it is because of hemorrhoids.
But please aware that even if you have hemorrhoids, it doesn’t mean you have no other disease.

The breast check including clinical examination, mammography (2ways for each breast) and ultrasound. We call it as a “full-course”.


Breast self-exam

Breast self-exam (examination your breast on your own) is one of the important way to find a breast cancer in earlier stage.
I assume that “breast self-exam” make you anxious at first because you may detect lumps, but you don’t know what they are and what is normal.


Do you have colon polyps?

Do you have colon polyps?
If I ask this question to people on the street, I think most of them will reply me as “I don’t know” including you.
Don’t worry it’s very normal. It is because you don’t have any apparatus to checking your intestine other than medical facilities.


Have you ever had a colonoscopy?

Colorectal (large intestine) cancer is one of the major cause of cancer death.
It is important to have the examinations to find a colorectal cancer at an early stage to keep your quality of life.
There are 2 common examinations for colorectal cancer; fecal occult blood tests and colonoscopies.
