In October, Philips and the Women's Health charity program are holding a campaign against breast cancer #YaPassed in 17 cities of Russia: women are offered free ultrasound or mammography using new diagnostic equipment, as well as consultation with oncologists and mammologists. Residents of Moscow, Chelyabinsk, Blagoveshchensk, Rostov-on-Don, Yekaterinburg, Bryansk, Vladimir, Ivanovo, Izhevsk, Samara, Kirov, Perm, Orel, Kostroma, Tver, Tutaev and Yaroslavl will be able to take part in the action.

Worldwide, October has been declared the month of the fight against breast cancer: at this time, educational events and social events are held, designed to draw attention to the need for regular screening and prevention of cancer. Today, the only way to prevent breast cancer is examination by a mammologist oncologist, who will help to identify the disease in the early stages. With timely diagnosis, breast cancer can be cured in 94% of cases.

To draw attention to the importance of regular diagnostics, the campaign organizers urge women who have visited a mammologist to post photos with a sign and the hashtag #YaProgress on social networks. Like last year, the action was supported by Russian celebrities.

“Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer death among women and, at the same time, the most curable cancer. At the same time, in 2015 alone, within the framework of the clinical examination, about 20,000 women were identified with suspected breast cancer, and the detection rate in the early stages is 70%, while in Russia as a whole, this indicator is 54%,”said Arman Voskerchyan, CEO of Philips in Russia and the CIS.

You can find out the dates of the action in your city and sign up for a survey on the action website. On 16 and 17 in Moscow, free consultations of oncologists, mammologists and plastic surgeons will be available at VDNKh, and there will also be a charity bike ride "Cool against breast cancer".
