It is not only important to have healthy habits, you must also visit your doctor for regular check-ups that are vital for early diagnosis.
Primary prevention consists of leading a healthy lifestyle and avoiding risk factors as far as possible; secondary prevention is achieved by early diagnosis check-ups and paying due attention to systems of alert. These will be the best weapons for staying in good health and avoiding certain kinds of cancer.
Onkologikoa enables you, in addition to cancer prevention examinations, to have other tests and analyses done to obtain complementary medical information. This means that you will receive a complete report from a single healthcare centre, with the possibility of detecting other kinds of health problems. This examination includes all of the described cancer prevention tests, as well as blood and urine tests and an ECG.
Self-examination is essential for early detection. If you notice any wounds that won't heal (including mouth wounds), a mole that changes in shape, size or colour, or suffer blood loss for no apparent reason, make a visit to your doctor. The same applies in the case of a permanent cough or hoarseness, changes in bowel movement or urinating habits, or abnormal weight loss.
