M. Fanny Comprehensive Breast Care Unit
A woman spends an average of three working days per year on routine breast examinations; however, statistics show that only 20 percent of all suspected breast cancer cases turn out to be cancerous. At the CHW M. Fanny Comprehensive Breast Care Unit at the Shamir Medical Centre (Assaf Harofeh) – a unit founded by Canadian Hadassah-WIZO (CHW) – women receive same-day test results for breast examinations, providing peace of mind for the patient as well as faster treatment in cases of a positive diagnosis.
It can take several days to receive results from a clinic, but for those who have been diagnosed with cancer at the Institute, test results come quickly so patients can begin to receive advice and treatment options as soon as possible.
The CHW M. Fanny Comprehensive Breast Care Institute is the only such unit in Israel where everything is amalgamated into one location, including diagnosis, consulation and support. The benefits are clear – quick test results and the option to select a doctor and professional staff, which results in increased early detection and treatment for breast cancer patients. CHW Is very pleased to be able to continue our relationship with the Shamir Medical Centre (Assaf Harofeh) through the CHW M. Fanny Comprehensive Breast Care Institute.
