Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October

As COVID-19 has turned the world upside down, and we are now learning how to live in the new normal, Planmed wants to support the hospitals, clinics, and healthcare in the fight against breast cancer as much as possible. It is always our top priority to combat breast cancer.

Breast cancer awareness month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign that helps to increase attention and support for the awareness, early detection and treatment of breast cancer. As a company developing and manufacturing advanced mammography imaging equipment, Planmed is strongly dedicated to battling breast cancer – every month of the year.

This year, many hospitals worldwide have had to put their resources in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, but we at Planmed strongly encourage the health care providers to invest in breast care services, as well. Despite the current situation, breast cancer is still the most common cancer among women globally. This means that the need for mammography remains to exist even at times like these.

In addition to pleading with the healthcare providers, we encourage women all over the world not to postpone their screening mammograms, if possible. Screening often helps to detect breast cancer early on when it is easier to treat and with less-invasive therapies. Similarly, if you have already been diagnosed with breast cancer, it is highly recommended to not put off getting treatment.

Planmed wishes to thank all its partners for joining us in the fight against breast cancer. We are committed to improving the early detection of the disease through our leading technologies. Our solutions offer higher resolution imaging for radiologists while ensuring superior patient comfort and enhanced workflows for technicians. Furthermore, Planmed is dedicated to offering solutions such as mobile mammography clinics to countries and locations where access to care would otherwise be limited or non-existent.
