Clinica Rincón is to offer free mammograms to 20 women of Rincón de la Victoria. They are to be chosen by the Department of Social Welfare from the database of women over 45 years old.
Manuel Rincón, the manager of the clinic, has said that from November they are starting up a multidisciplinary breast unit with the surgeon, Concha Soler, who has 30 years experience in the clinic in Málaga.
“The idea is to create a unit of dedicated professionals who can carry out tests and diagnosis in 2-3 days” said the doctor. It is proven that if breast cancer is detected early it is a curable disease.
The cost of a mammogram in Clinica Rincón is about 70€. It is thought that there is a greater occurrence of breast cancer in women of a younger age and because of this it is now recommended that regular tests are carried out after the age of 45.
