Preventive Care

  • Annual Health Exam for women (breast exam, pelvic exam, skin check of genital area, PAP smear)
  • Check for sexually transmitted diseases
  • Colposcopy (Exam of vagina and cervix with microscope), biopsy if necessary
  • Pelvic ultrasound: find diseases of uterus, tubes or ovaries
  • Ultrasound of breast tissue: have breast pain or breast masses evaluated
  • Counseling: What should be done to preserve your health? E.g. would an assessment of bone density, or a screening for skin cancer be right for you?
  • Counseling if you may have hereditary risks for cancer
  • Prevent cervical cancer: vaccination against HPV
