Free mammography screenings on January 18, 2024.

On January 18, 2024, free mammographic examinations will be conducted for women at the Volunteer Fire Brigade on Żabikowska Street 34 in Luboń as part of the Population Breast Cancer Early Detection Program. According to the decision of the Minister of Health, as of November this year, women aged 45 to 74, who have not undergone such examinations in the past two years, are eligible for the examination reimbursed by the National Health Fund.
Registration for examinations
Registrations for examinations are carried out under the phone number: 68 41 41 411 (from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm: Mon-Fri)
Preparation for the examination
The examination can be performed without any preparation. It is best to come in two-piece clothing, so that it can be easily undressed to the waist. On this day, deodorant, talcum powder, balm or cream should not be used in the upper half of the body. During the examination, the breast is placed on a small platform and pressed with a plastic plate from the top and the side, which allows obtaining two images. This compression lasts only a few seconds.
Why is it worth doing a mammogram?
Mammography can detect changes 2 to 4 years earlier before they become clinically evident. The natural course of breast cancer is usually very long, which is why it is considered a chronic disease. Starting from the first cell that undergoes malignant transformation, in most cases, the tumor reaches a diameter of 1 cm within 7-8 years. Regular breast control gives a great chance to detect early changes and apply treatment.
