Attitudes of women after the age of 50 towards preventive screening.

Abstract Prevention is one of the major branches of the health sector. The National Health Programme encompasses main risk factors, elimination of which may lead to a reduced incidence of illnesses in the society. At the same time, the criteria of selecting people eligible for preventive screening are established according to risk groups determined by sex, as well as age in the population of women. The perimenopausal and menopausal period contributes to occurrence of numerous systemic diseases and to an increased risk of illnesses, especially cancers.

AB  - INTRODUCTION: Prevention is one of the major branches of the health sector. The
      National Health Programme encompasses main risk factors, elimination of which may
      lead to a reduced incidence of illnesses in the society. At the same time, the
      criteria of selecting people eligible for preventive screening are established
      according to risk groups determined by sex, as well as age in the population of
      women. The perimenopausal and menopausal period contributes to occurrence of
      numerous systemic diseases and to an increased risk of illnesses, especially
      cancers. OBJECTIVE: The objective of the research was to evaluate the performance
      of preventive screening tests of women after 50 aimed at early detection of
      cervical and breast cancer. Furthermore, the research estimated frequency of
      pathological lesions detected and regularity of their monitoring. MATERIALS AND
      METHODS: The research covered 150 women after 50 years of age. The database was
      statistically examined with STATISTICA software. RESULTS: A low percentage of the
      respondents, in comparison to the risk increasing with age, had a Pap test
      (61.3%) and mammography (51.3%) in the last two years. In the case of women whose
      latest Pap test or mammography showed abnormalities and was the basis for
      diagnosing pathological lesions, 69.2% of them were under regular medical
      supervision if abnormalities were identified by a Pap test and 68.7% if lesions
      were detected in breast structure. CONCLUSIONS: In the examined group we observed
      a small percentage of women undergo Pap tests and mammography. Furthermore,
      medical recommendations regarding early detection of cancers are frequently
      ignored and disregarded by patients.
