Happy New Year!

We wish your diary 2017 will be filled up with delighted and enrich moments.


What shall I go in?

This is one of the freaquent questions.
Therefore, we would like to inform you what kind of clothes you had better to wear on the examination day.
This is only for Sapporo Female clinic, it can be different from other clinics.


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.


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.
