Jordan: Wednesday, October 02 - 2013 @ 00:00

On this occasion, Advaclinic Director Dr. Samir Kalander MD, explained, “The main objective behind the launch of this offer is to enable early detection of any malignant tumors amongst the clinic’s patients, and to consequently allow for successful early treatment. He further stated that Advaclinic’s contribution to the World Breast Cancer Awareness Month is one that stems from its strong sense of belonging to the local community and its commitment to ensuring that it is constantly doing its part to elevate standards of health awareness and healthcare.”

Dr. Kalander also confirmed, “Advaclinic is constantly ensuring that its service offerings are designed to accommodate patients’ needs and health conditions, which is a goal it achieves through its commitment to providing cutting edge equipment and top of the line medical know-how.”

Consequently, Advaclinic’s Breast Care Center offers CR Digital Mammography, Ultrasound with Elastography, Stereotactic Breast biopsy, and Breast MRI, whereby all these tests serve to offer early diagnoses for any abnormality in the breast tissue.

It is worth noting that in Jordan, cancer is the second most frequent cause of death after heart disease, as stated in records reported by the Ministry of Health for the year 2012. Furthermore, the kingdom registers around 13 cancer cases every day, while breast cancer is the most common form of the disease.

Therefore, the Breast Cancer Awareness Month is observed every year in October bringing with it an international campaign, designed to increase awareness about the disease. Launched in the year 1985 by the World Health Organization (WHO), the month of October has been devoted to this cause ever since, and Advaclinic is doing its part to commemorate this occasion.
