The Pap Smear Test

Cancer of the cervix is the most common gynaecological cancer in women in Kenya today and leads to death of many women. By the time a woman notices changes that alert her to the problem, the cancer in most cases is already advanced. However, the onset can be detected by a simple test -the Pap Smear, and can be treated inexpensively before it becomes advanced.The Pap Smear Test takes only a few minutes and the results are released within 24 hours.The Pap Smear Test would reveal uterine or cervical cancer at an early stage, when no visible symptoms or other damage is apparent. At this stage the cancer is completely and simply curable.

Breast Clinic

Early detection is your breast protection. Breast health is one area in your life where you can take control.You can take control by talking to your friends, family and your doctor about your breast health. Everyone should learn and practice Breast Self Examination starting from puberty and continue throughout life.A good place to start would be with your own doctor who can give you the required information. At Mater Hospital we offer breast screening by doctors and nurses especially trained to teach breast health.

About 50% of all Kenyan women are said to be at a higher risk of developing breast cancer and as such they should be extra careful about their breast health.

The hospital has a fully operational mammography unit and clients are encouraged to make it a part of their breast examination. So far mammography is the most reliable method for breast screening and early diagnosis of breast cancer .To allow the service to be accessible to all women, we now accept walk-in clients for routine checkup on women above 40 years of age. Privacy of the patient is maintained by having only lady radiographers to perform the examination.
