For several years now, cancer screening campaigns have been held in the capital, and more and more Muscovites are using this procedure. Only in the first week of the screening program for diagnostics 11 627 people signed up…
Cancer screening can be done by the end of August.

The program includes the most informative research. Women between the ages of 18 and 39 can undergo an ultrasound examination (ultrasound) of the mammary glands, over 40 years – mammography. Women over 18 years old will be offered to take a smear for oncocytology to diagnose diseases of the cervix, and men over 45 years old – a blood test for prostate-specific antigen (PSA). In addition, patients over 40 years old are invited to pass a fecal occult blood test.
“Oncological screening is a set of measures designed for early detection of asymptomatic course of oncological diseases. Cancer diseases have become younger and are mostly asymptomatic, therefore, mass screening, which is carried out annually in city polyclinics by the Department of Health, is very relevant. Since July 30, an action has been launched on the most common oncological diseases associated with the mammary gland in women, in men – with the prostate, with colorectal cancer, as well as oncocytology – taking a smear for cervical cancer, “explained the district specialist in medical prevention SAO Pavel Molodov.
The patient of the branch number 1 of the city polyclinic number 62 Lyudmila Artamonova said that she regularly undergoes oncological screening for prevention: “It’s all painless, quickly and very competently organized. All analyzes take less than 40 minutes. “
Cancer screening is an absolutely free procedure. Research takes very little time. For example, taking a smear from a gynecologist – five to seven minutes, ultrasound – about 10 minutes, mammography – less than 15 minutes.
“Cancer screening is very important because early detection of the disease has a beneficial effect on the treatment process, dynamics and further follow-up. 95 percent of patients in whom the disease is detected at an early stage can be completely cured. The trend of recent years shows that the younger generation is interested in a healthy lifestyle. It responds well to such actions, is actively recording, undergoing research. We are glad that young people take care of their health in advance, because this is the gene pool of our country, the health of our nation, ”said Pavel Molodov.
Employees of polyclinics adhere to the Rospotrebnadzor instructions for the prevention of the spread of coronavirus infection. At the entrance, patients are measured temperature, sanitizers are everywhere, wearing masks and gloves is mandatory. The premises are marked to maintain social distance. If the patient does not have personal protective equipment, they will be issued at the clinic. People with fever pass through a separate entrance and filter box, they do not intersect with healthy patients.
As Pavel Molodov said, modern technologies and even artificial intelligence are used in the analysis of research results: “For example, let’s take X-ray beam diagnostics. There is a unified radiological information service (ERIS), where all data of X-ray radiation diagnostics are sent. The system detects small changes in the image, regardless of whether it is a mammogram, an X-ray of the lungs or a CT scan of the lungs. That is, the system helps to exclude the human factor, it checks the results after the doctor. “
If the system notices any deviations, it informs the doctor about this, after which the patient is sent to the hospital for further examination.
