Why Women Should Receive Regular Pap Smears and Breast Exams
Benefits of a Breast Exam
Obtaining clinical breast exams from a doctor or nurse is the best way to detect breast anomalies in their earliest stages that may be cancerous. During a breast exam procedure at our medical center, your doctor will visually and manually examine your breasts for signs of lumps, masses or abnormal skin changes. If your doctor thinks you should have a mammogram, you will be referred to a healthcare provider in the Leesburg, The Villages, Tavares and Eustis areas qualified to give mammograms. The American Cancer Society suggests women between 20 and 39 get a mammogram once every four years while women over 40 should have mammograms annually.
Benefits of Pap Smears
Pap tests are designed to detect pre cancers and cancers in your cervix. Catching cervical cancer in its earliest stages almost always results in successfully treating both potentially cancerous cells and established cancer cells. Completed in less than 30 minutes, pap smears may be a little uncomfortable but they are not painful. The best thing about pap smears is that they do save lives.
What is BioTe Hormone Replacement Therapy?
BioTe is an innovative HRT using naturally-derived hormone replacements instead of synthetic hormones. Once thought to be the “cure-all” for symptoms and disorders associated with pre menopause, menopause and low estrogen/progesterone, synthetic hormone replacement therapy is now known to contribute to:
- Pulmonary embolism
- Thromboembolic disease
- Cardiovascular disease
- Endometrial cancer
- Breast cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Gall bladder disease
When you choose BioTe for replacing hormones lost to the aging process, you won't have to undergo a series of multiple injections. Instead, a tiny BioTe pellet is inserted painlessly under your skin that continuously releases the right amount of hormones necessary for optimizing your general health, safely reducing risk for many age-related diseases without the negative side effects of synthetic hormones.
