About a million new cases of breast cancer are registered worldwide each year. In Lithuania, the incidence of breast cancer has increased two and a half times in three decades. Regular check-ups will help detect the disease early and start treatment on time. Early stage breast cancer can be completely cured. Breast ultrasound is the first-choice examination for young women aged 20-30 to determine if there are any suspicious growths in the breast. When is a breast ultrasound examination recommended? When planning pregnancy, before starting to take contraceptive pills or after long use of contraceptives  or hormone replacement therapy, before plastic breast surgery, as later on this examination will help assess the condition of breast implants,  in the case of a benign breast disease, to clarify the findings of a mammography, to assess armpit lymph nodes. All women should have their check-ups once a year, even if they have no complaints and regularly check their breasts themselves palpably..

Thyroid ultrasound is a fast, reliable, completely painless ultrasound examination. Thyroid ultrasound helps detect thyroid tumours, cysts, changes in thyroid structure and size.
