PREVENTIVE PROGRAMS

The state-organised and paid early detection programme for breast, cervical and colorectal malignancies was launched in 2009. One of the main goals of the program is to reduce mortality caused by cancer. According to the current indicators, breast cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in Latvia, which, if detected in time, can lead to a complete cure. In cases of diagnosed disease, treatment can improve the quality of life.

Preventive examinations and timely treatment are essential to protect yourself from disease or early diagnosis!

In 2013, cancer timely detection programs will continue, in which patients are invited to perform a state-paid prevention of rectum and cervical cancer!
