Cancer screening and early detection
As part of cancer screening, all health insurance funds allow an examination of the abdomen once a year with the taking of cell smears as well as palpation of the breast to detect any changes. In addition, a colonoscopy for the early detection of bowel cancer is recommended and financed from the age of 55.
In addition to these standard examinations, there are a number of useful supplementary examinations that can increase preventive safety.
- Breast ultrasound
- Abdominal ultrasound
- HPV test
- Sensitive stool test
Infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) - also called human immunodeficiency virus - leads to AIDS, a currently still incurable immunodeficiency disease, after an incubation period of varying length.
AIDS is mainly transmitted through blood and blood products, intravenous drug abuse and through sexual contact (homosexual as well as heterosexual). But it is also possible for the child of an HIV-infected mother to become infected during birth or pregnancy.
The HIV test
This test, which we offer to all our patients and, if necessary, to their partners, is an IGeLeistung (self-pay). For pregnant women, on the other hand, an HIV test is part of the prenatal care and is therefore covered by the health insurance system.
If you would like more detailed information about this special examination, please ask our doctors for individual advice.
Oncological follow-up care
Especially after cancer, follow-up examinations should be carried out regularly. We work according to the current aftercare guidelines. These provide for examinations at 3-monthly intervals for the first three years after cancer, and then at six-monthly intervals.
What we can do
We are open to your needs and concerns and help you organise your daily life, such as home help and care.
