Gynecological Examination

Uterine Cancer Screening

As for uterine cancer, there are two kinds that exist, the cervical cancer that is occurs at the uterine entrance, and the cancer that occurs very deep in the uterus.  Especially for cervical cancer, where the virus infection is the cause and unlike other cancers in particular, it occurs at a young age.  There are also reports of a growing number of women with uterine cancer in their twenties, so we recommend a screening for early detection.

Cervical Cancer Vaccine

Cervical cancer is a cancer that can be near the entrance to the uterus (cervix).  It has been increasing rapidly in recent years of women between 20˜ 30 years of age, and the infection of the carcinogenic HPV (human papilloma virus) is the cause that leads to the onset.  As for the carcinogenic HPV, many women are infected at least once in their lifetime, a virus that is very common and often is eliminated naturally but if the infection lasts long then there is a chance of it leading to cervical cancer.  Since there are almost no symptoms in the early stages, you may be late in noticing it.

 

By keeping the body from infection by use of HPV vaccination, cervical cancer can be prevented. However because we are not 100% protected from cancer, the cervical cancer screening on a regular basis is also required after vaccination.

 

At our clinic, we have two types of cervical cancer vaccines, Cervarix and Gardasil.  Cervarix is a vaccine that is thought of as being effective and lasting against cervical cancer.  Gardasil is a vaccine that not only is effective against cervical cancer; it is also effective against genital warts.

Breast Cancer Screening

Breast cancer is increasing year by year, and also it has a high incidence in younger women.  We recommend screening for early detection.  At our clinic we do breast cancer screening that combines ultrasound and palpations.  For those who are 40 years of age and older a mammography is valid, unfortunately however at our clinic we don’t have the proper equipment to such a screening so we advise to visit another place where it is possible.  For those who are under 40 years of age, during this time breast tissue is still developing so a mammogram is not suitable for screening.

Bridal Check

There has been an increasing amount of women who are saying, “Now that I will get married I’d like to check for gynecological diseases.”, but this is a very good idea.  For those who don’t really have the opportunity to go in to the OB⁄ GYN regularly, just once going in and getting lots of tests done is important.


In the basic examination, a pelvic screening and with the ultrasound the uterus and ovaries will be checked.  In addition, we will also check for cervical cancer which has been on the rise in young women, and check for gonorrhea and chlamydia because the symptoms and signs are unnoticeable and if left alone is known to be the cause of infertility.


Other than that there are various other cases of worry of STD’s and anxiety about infertility, so we will work with you and go forward by what you would like to be tested on.  Also we have prepared a Bridal Package that we have combined with a special diet.


Cost ¥32,000 (Excludes tax)

Gynecological Formation

There is a large variation with the shape of the genitals and most cases of individuals who come in concerned are actually not abnormal.  However, if it is a case where the patient is concerned with the largeness of the labia minora and there is pain with everyday life, and those who are concerned with the color or shape then angioplasty will be performed.
