I had a mammogram and sonogram last night at International Clinic. It came back normal (according to them) - with a little fluid cyst that I am going to get a second opinion on just incase.
One of my American friends recently went to IC and they found something that they told her she shouldn't worry about either; it turned out to be stage 1 cancer. She went to the States to be treated and is fine now; they caught it early enough.
My friend, Nanda, was diagnosed with breast cancer here in Kuwait not too long ago. She had treatment here, then in her home country in Brazil. I guess they didn't catch it in time. She passed away and we all miss her so much. In her last days, she told everyone she met to go have a mammogram.
So, I think everybody should. If you are not a woman, you have a mother, sisters, wife, friends who are - tell them that they should. It is survivable if you catch it early enough. If not, cancer is a terrible disease that affects everyone around the patient.
I had a mammogram done at Mowasat hospital about 3 years ago. It was really comprehensive; with the x-rays, they gave me a typed, signed report of their findings.
Maybe some of you have had better experiences at other hospitals or clinics around Kuwait and I would appreciate it if you would let me know so I can post about it so other women know.
