“Breast cancer is more curable than other cancers if detected early,” said Dr. Shyama Fernando, the Senior Medical Officer at the Ceylinco Healthcare Centre. “But statistics reveal that breast cancer results in many deaths in Sri Lanka because most often, those cancers are detected at a later stage and are treated only during the advanced stages.”
She said the dedicated Breast Care Unit of the Ceylinco Healthcare Centre is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for the detection and treatment of cancer and visitors can undergo screening or treatment in a comfortable non-hospital atmosphere.
Appointments for screening at the Centre in October can be made over the telephone by calling 2490290.
The team at the Centre’s Breast Care Unit comprises of female doctors, radiologists, a pathologist, breast surgeon, oncologist, nurses, radiographers and customer service staff. Located at Park Street, Colombo 02, the Centre offers services ranging from history-based risk assessment to clinical examination, mammography, ultrasound investigation as well as multi-modal treatment options.
Established in collaboration with the world renowned Washington Hospital Centre, the Ceylinco Healthcare Centre is a ground-breaking project of Ceylinco Healthcare Services Ltd., (CHSL) a subsidiary of Ceylinco Life, the country’s leading life insurer.
