That’s why we have prepared a few tips for you, thanks to which you will remember healthy breasts much more often, at least once a month!
Self-examination once a month
You must have expected that. But what’s the point, it’s still the most effective way to protect your breasts and recognize the slightest changes in time that can be a problem. The biggest scare of women is breast cancer, which manifests itself in as many as 75% of women with a palpable, painless lump. Uncommon manifestations of cancer are breast pain, skin or nipple retraction and nipple discharge. How to examine your breasts yourself? The non-profit organization Loono has produced countless materials on this topic, from educational videos, comprehensive instructions on the Loono website, to posters and professional materials, which you can find in the waiting rooms and surgeries of some general practitioners.
Preventive examinations are an integral part of proper health care. In the Czech Republic, only one in four Czechs goes to see a district doctor. We are better off with a visit to a gynecologist, but still no glory. Only about 50% of women go to the gynecologist for a preventive examination regularly. Wondering what preventive check-ups you are entitled to, since and at what intervals? Go to the preventive inspection page and find out which examinations you should attend according to your age and gender. Women over the age of 45 should definitely not forget breast cancer screening every two years in mammography centers!
TIP: Loono with Česko.Digital is developing a unique preventive application called Včas, which will see the light of day in February 2022. It already promises to remind people of important examinations with notifications, pass on information about the examination or the opportunity to search a doctor. At the same time, it will support users in performing self-examinations and in a healthy lifestyle.
Educational podcasts & social networks
Podcasts have experienced a big boom in recent years. How about combining pleasant with useful and expanding your health knowledge thanks to the podcast? Listen to podcasts from Loono. The Loono podcast addresses the topic of healthy breasts in the first part, and this episode is still one of the most popular. The founder Kateřina Vacková is talking to Dr. MUDr. Petra Steyer and during the conversation they disprove a lot of myths about breast cancer. They will also touch on the average breast size in the Czech Republic and, of course, they will not miss a topic asked by many women for a mammogram examination. In one of the other parts, however, you can also listen to the patient’s personal confession, which describes her experience with breast cancer.
If you want to take your knowledge of health and prevention to an even higher level, give “follow” to Instagram Loono. In addition to regular positive information on health prevention, you can also try interesting quizzes that take place on IG stories.
And if all these tips aren’t enough, or if you want your loved ones to start taking an interest in your health (without having to secretly order them for tours or send links to podcasts that they may not even listen to), you can go smart. . Loono has a charity e-shop for its fans, where you will find their already iconic breasted T-shirt, tin can or the latest package of healthy breasts, which includes, among other things, a voucher for an ultrasound examination together with a manual for breast self-examination. With that, you and your surroundings will not forget that healthy breasts are important!
