We have only 2 English speakers in here; our clinic director’s level of English is “communicable”, and mine is “workable” in a certain area.
We are going to carry out a first time “Sunday breast cancer screening” on May 10.
It is also a Mother’s day in Japan.
Breast cancer screening rate is relatively low in most of Asian countries including Japan.
In Japan, many women have a problem of bowel movement, especially trouble with constipation.
Some of them have constipation since their early childhood.
What is constipation by the way?
Let me introduce process of the breast cancer full-course screening at Sapporo Female Clinic with photos.
Have you had the breast cancer screening in your home country?
In many western countries, the screening rate is more than 70%.
It might be a high morbidity in those countries, but also high awareness for the breast cancer and the screening.
Regrettably, it is only 20% in Japan for the screening rate.
Many women must experience that feeling “hmm…something wrong with my buttocks…”.
It might be after stomach flu or unexpected constipation. Either your hormone balance, work related cause; sitting or standing whole day, carry heavy things etc. Of course, pregnancy and child birth could be a trigger.
Thank you very much for visiting our website.
