Health Check Up

Breast self-examination (BSE)

A breast self-exam is a check-up you can do at home to look for changes or problems in the breast tissue.

This should be part of your monthly health care routine, and you should visit a doctor if experiencing changes or having breast pain. The best time to do is about 3 to 5 days after your period starts. Do it at the same time every month.

If you find a lump or notice other unusual changes: Don’t panic. About 80% of lumps found are not cancerous. See your doctor promptly for further evaluation.

Importance of Pap smear

Regular preventive care is one of the most important ways to maintain your health over time. If you wait to see a doctor only when you notice a problem, it may be too late.

A Pap (papanicolaou) smear is a quick test that checks for changes to the cells of your cervix that may lead to cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is a disease where normal cells in the cervix change and multiply to form a growth or tumor. It is important to have a test every two years, so that any abnormal cells are detected early, monitored and treated to prevent cancer.
