Almost every family has been affected by cancer in one way or another.
In Ukraine, about 140,000 people find out about the disease every year.
For a third of them, it happens in the late stages, when the disease requires long-term and complex treatment.
Therefore, 6 tests to detect the disease are provided by the program of medical guarantees .
This can be done free of charge in institutions that have entered into an agreement with the National Health Service of Ukraine to provide these services.
Important: You need to have a referral from your doctor!
What exactly does the NHS pay for:
- Mammography of the breast (to detect breast cancer)
- Hysteroscopy (to detect cancer of the uterus and cervix)
- Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (to detect cancer of the stomach and esophagus)
- Colonoscopy (to detect colon cancer)
