GHHS Healthcare and Wellness Centre provides cancer prevention screening that can raise awareness of the community and be a helping hand to lower the risk of getting cancer. Although maintaining a healthy lifestyle, taking medicines or vaccines, and avoiding exposure to known cancer-causing substances can also prevent cancer cells from developing, an immunological test – a test to detect abnormalities of the immune system, are also very much needed to diagnose immune diseases, also to detect antibodies against allergy-triggering substances. Some of the Cancer Prevention & Immune System Screening test that GHHS Healthcare and Wellness Centre offers are:
I. Cervical Cancer Screening
Pap test or Pap Smear test will be done to look for precancers and cell changes on the cervix that might potentially develop cervical cancer if they are not being treated appropriately.
II. Free Radical Test
Free radicals or Oxidative Stress test is provided at GHHS Healthcare and Wellness Centre to identify an imbalance between free radical- oxygen-containing molecules with an uneven number of electrons and antioxidants in your body.
III. Urea Breath Test
The Urea Breath Test (UBT) is a medical test to distinguish the presence of the bacterium, Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), a type of bacteria that may infect the human’s stomach and is the major cause of ulcers in both the stomach and duodenum (the first part of the small intestine).
IV. M2-PK Test
M2-PK Test or M2 Pyruvate Kinase is a non-invasive screening test for early detection of colorectal cancers and polyps which are recognized to be the precursors of colorectal cancer.
V. Food Intolerance
Food Intolerance screening is a medical test to diagnose one’s intolerance towards fermentable carbs, such as lactose, legumes, and certain vegetables, fruits, grains, and sweeteners. At GHHS Healthcare and Wellness Centre, the screening for food intolerance will be done by taking your breath tests to identify your poor tolerance and absorption of certain carbs mentioned earlier.
VI. Allergy Screening
At GHHS Healthcare and Wellness Centre, an Allergy Screening is an examination performed by a highly trained allergy specialist to determine if your body has an allergic reaction to a known substance. Allergy can be detected when one’s overreacts towards something in the environment. For instance, normally harmless pollen can cause your body to overreact, such as having a runny nose, sneezing, blocked sinuses, itchy and watery eyes. The exam would be done by taking your blood test, skin test, or an elimination diet.
