zipper Starting Wednesday, October 20, there will be a new round of breast cancer screening in Soest. Women who fall into the target group (ages 50-75) and live in zip code areas 3760 to 3764 will receive invitations.
A research center (mobile) will be set up in the parking lot of the Beukendal Gymnasium in Beukenlaan to conduct the research. This is where the investigations take place. These consist of a mammogram. Surveying is voluntary and free.
Partly due to Corona, the course of investigations was delayed. Due to the staff shortage, which cannot be compensated for by Covid-19, the second call will also take longer, according to the Midwest population survey reports.
Usually, women in the target group are invited every two years. As long as the occupation is not going well, this period will be extended to a maximum of three years.
1 in 7 Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in the Netherlands. About one in seven women in the Netherlands gets it. Of every 1,000 women screened, approximately 25 require additional check-ups in the hospital to determine if breast cancer is actually involved. In fact, about 7 out of every 25 women referred to hospital are diagnosed with breast cancer. This is determined by surveying the population of the Midwest based on its numbers.
Detecting the disease at an early stage greatly increases the chance of recovery
“By detecting the disease at an early stage, the chance of a cure is much greater. That’s why population screening was created. Population screening means that approximately 850 women die of breast cancer each year.”
General Doctor The Midwest points out that population screening is a snapshot and therefore does not provide complete certainty. Official Spokesperson: “It is important to participate regularly even if no abnormality was found in the previous investigation. Not all cases of breast cancer can be detected early. In the event of a complaint, it is advised to contact your doctor immediately.
Staff will continue to wear protective equipment during the breast exam. The customer can also wear a mouth covering, which he can bring by himself or can order when entering the research center.
