Oncomammology is a branch of medicine that studies the development, early detection, treatment and prevention of tumors (benign and malignant) mammary glands. According to statistics, breast cancer takes the first place in the structure of female cancer incidence. Therefore, it is so important that every girl and woman pay close attention to the mammary glands – they are regularly examined and preventively observed in a specialized oncologic gynecological center.
What diseases are treated by the onco-mammologist
Breast cancer is the result of a long process that ultimately leads to uncontrolled cell division with the formation of a malignant tumor. However, this is not the result of a single day, but a chain of successive changes, in which the cell structure is broken step by step, and in the end it changes so much that it begins to divide many times and quickly.
However, these unfortunate events can be avoided by detecting changes in the breast in a timely manner in the breast. First of all, mastopathy, especially the nodular form. In addition, the risk of malignant breast diseases is higher in those women who have a number of gynecological diseases:
- menstrual disorders;
- uterine fibroids;
- endometrial hyperplasia, etc.
Therefore, onco-mmmology and gynecological oncology are closely intertwined. And if there are such risk factors, a woman should visit the onco-mammologist at least once a year for preventive purposes.
