November Newsletter

Dear Patient!

The Robert Health Centre has prepared a very special offer for November. The Robert Karoly Private Clinic and Health Centre has joined the global campaign to dedicate the month of November to men’s health and the conservation of manly strength for as long as possible. You have probably already heard of the Movember Foundation, established to call attention to the importance of prostate cancer screening (encouraging men to grow a beard during November out of solidarity). Prostate cancer is the second highest cause of death in Hungary for men over 50, with 6000 new cases registered annually. Experts believe this number could be reduced significantly, if, from the age of 45-50, men would attend a screening examination at least once a year, like women do, as a result of campaigns which have been running for years. That is why the Robert Karoly Private Clinic and Health Centre chose the following as its campaign slogan: DO IT FOR ME!

Prostate cancer screening

Statistics show that women go to see a doctor, for the purpose of screening examinations, one and a half times compared to men. So, ladies, there is nothing else for it, but to ask men to consider an important circumstance; namely, that their families need them. Quite a lot, actually!

Have you ever thought about how you could convince the men in your family to attend a screening examination intended to prevent prostate cancer? The examination consists of three parts, and is normally pain-free. It is important for men to realize that the few seconds of discomfort caused by palpation, one of the three examinations, is absolutely nothing compared to having to consult a doctor with the symptoms of prostate cancer! Moreover, malignant lesions detected in good time are 100 percent treatable with today’s methods. It is therefore important to tell your male partner: DO IT FOR ME! To make him feel better, you can also go along with him, or go for a gynaecological screening examination a few days later. In this case, a 30 percent discount would apply to the second examination. This all goes to reassure yourself and the family, and to safeguard your health.

Men attending a prostate cancer screening examination at the Robert Health Centre between 1 November and 15 December receive a free 30% off coupon, redeemable by a lady towards a gynaecological screening examination, until 31 January 2016.

Address: 1121 Budapest, Budakeszi út 36/C.

We look forward to your call.

The contents and the process of the cancer screening examination

Prostate screening involves three methods of examination.

Lab test – blood test

Thanks to the diagnostic methods, PSAs (prostate-specific antigens) can be detected from a blood test. The examination is reliable; an increased level of PSA may signify a lesion in the prostate gland, which are, thankfully, not necessarily malignant. They may be caused by infection, or an enlargement of the chestnut-sized organ. Further tests are therefore necessary, which can either confirm the presence of prostate cancer, or the latter diagnosis, an infection or enlargement. Patients receive the appropriate treatment in this case as well, since an infection of course requires treatment to prevent it from turning chronic, which could cause complaints for the patient for years.

Ultrasound

The pain-free ultrasound examination provides an extremely precise picture and immediate feedback about the structure and the condition of the prostate gland. It also helps to identify prostate glands which are not yet producing any symptoms; if the ultrasound shows inhomogeneity, there could always be a chronic infection or malignant lesion behind this.

Manual examination

In the light of the above, the third examination, called palpation, is ever more important. It involves the manual examination of the prostate gland through the anus. It is unavoidable and, although patients often consider it unpleasant, it is pain-free. Physicians perform it with discretion and care.

 

The price of the prostate cancer screening examination is 26 000 HUF, and it requires two visits.

The contents and the process of the gynaecological screening examination

  1. As a first step, the physician opens up the vagina with a tool called the vaginal speculum, to examine the vaginal walls and the condition of the cervical orifice.
  2. Using a long stick, the physician then takes a smear from the surface of the uterine cervix and the cervical orifice. Then, brushing is performed, which helps to identify any suspicious lesions of the epithelium. The physician then examines the epithelial surface of the cervical orifice, magnified 5-20 times, using a colposcope.
  3. Using the fingers, the physician then performs a bimanual examination of the vagina, the size and the position of the cervix and the ovaries.
  4. A vaginal ultrasound is also often performed, to examine the internal organs, and an abdominal ultrasound may also be made.
  5. Scrupulous gynaecologists will then offer a palpation examination of the breasts, since malignant breast lesions are unfortunately becoming more common in younger age groups as well.
  6. Finally, the physician will send the smear sample to the laboratory, which will return the results in two to three weeks. If the results show any abnormality, the patient is notified immediately, and requested to attend a follow-up examination.

The price of the gynaecological cancer examination, with the 30% discount, is 15 400 HUF, and requires a single visit.
