Free Testicular Cancer Screening Day
On Sunday 10 September, Global Diagnostics at Peel Health Campus held a free ultrasound screening day to help raise awareness for testicular cancer. It was a very successful day, scanning over 20 patients. A big thank you goes to all the Global Diagnostic staff that volunteered their valuable time and skills on the day.
According to Cancer Council Australia, Testicular cancer is the second most common cancer in young men (aged 18 to 39). The most common type is seminoma, which usually occurs in men aged between 25 and 50 years. The other main type is non-seminoma, which is more common in younger men, usually in their 20s. The rate of men diagnosed with testicular cancer has grown by more than 50% over the past 30 years, however the reason for this is not known.
Global Diagnostics is committed in providing a comprehensive medical imaging service to the residents of the Peel region. The highly trained team consists of consultant radiologist doctors, sonographers and medical imaging technologists who are on hand, every day, to ensure patients receive the highest levels of care.
