The goal of the annual exam is to detect cancer or its precursors as early as possible in order to provide them with the most effective treatment. An annual exam is recommended for every women starting at age 20.
Extended cancer care: medically recommended supplementary services!
The purpose of aftercare – the medical support provided after a treatment – is to provide long-term, comprehensive support and assistance.
The aim of oncology aftercare include
Duration of aftercare
Aftercare should never be time-limited. Even 20 years after treatment, women who have had breast cancer still have a higher risk for breast cancer. Awareness and active participation in early detection measures, such as self-examination, play an important role for breast cancer survivors. Any changes, including those to scars, should be reported to the physician.
Urogynecology involves the diagnosis of and therapy for disorders of the bladder and pelvic floor.

After diagnostic evaluation and counseling, we guide you through the fertility process and help you determine the best treatment options, in cooperation with infertility centres in Regensburg. Treatment steps may include:
Most women experience the beginning of hormonal changes between 45 and 55 years. The ovarian production of female hormons is getting slower. Menopause brings the end of the menstrual cycle and reproductive years, but also major changes for the body. Hot flashes, perspiration, recurring rapid heartbeat, sleeping problems, irritability, depression, joint and back pain, vaginal dryness and incontinence are the most common symptoms. At this age, most women are still highly active and challenged, both professionally and privately.

The first trimester screening (nuchal translucency screening), one of the most important ultrasound scan during pregnancy is performed between 11 and 13 weeks of pregnancy.
In the first part of the scan we calculate the risk of the fetus having extra chromosomes, called trisomies. This test uses a combination of the mother´s age, hormones that come from the placenta and a sonogram measuring the pocket of fluid at baby´s neck. The screening test has a 90-93 % detection rate of Down-syndrome (Trisomy 21) and a 5 % false positive rate.
In the second part follows the evaluation of the whole fetus´s anatomy as far as possible in this early week of gestation. Most of the major anomalies can be already detected at this stage, but the main goal of the scan is to confirm normal development and reassure parents.
Thirdly the screening can be completed with a risk estimation for developing a preeclamspia after 20 weeks.
The screening can only be performed by physicians who are yearly certified. Dr. Jánky is certified for First Trimester Screening through the Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF) in London.
With a DNA-based blood screening test you can detect chromosomal anomalies, as well as detect the gender. The test can exlude following conditions: Trisomies 13, 18 and 21, Turner-Syndrome, Klinefelter-Syndrome, Triple-X-Syndrome and XYY-Syndrome.
The test can be performed as early as 9th week of pregnancy. It has a very high detection rate for chromosomal anomalies (99,8 % for Down-Syndrome) but gives no hint at all about structural malformations of the fetus.
Thus, according to current recommendations, the NIPT is usually performed together with the first trimester screening.
At this scan between 20 and 22 weeks of pregnancy we check baby´s anatomy again, ideally as the second „full“ ultrasound scan after the first trimester screening. All the organs of the fetus are examined systematically, from brain and face down to the heart and extremities.
Furthermore we check the amount of amniotic fluid, the placenta as well as the blood flow in some arteries.
With a heart scan we check the baby´s heart in detail with a high resolution ultrasound maschine. In the vast majority of cases we rule out a heart condition. However in a few cases we diagnose a heart failure. The accurate diagnose allows an early consultation with pediatric cardiologists and pediatric heart surgeons, to provide optimum care before and after birth. In most of these cases we plan the delivery in a pediatric heart center with appropriate specialists.
When is the scan performed?
In principle, fetal heart can be checked beyond 12-13 weeks of pregnancy. About 50-60 % of heart conditions can be then detected. However the reliability of the scan at this early stage of pregnancy is limited due to small size of the heart, so that we recommend another scan later in pregnancy. The most favourable time for the heart scan is between 20-22 weeks, where specialists can detect up to 80 % of all heart conditions.
Of course a fetal heart scan can be performed at any stage of pregnancy by suspicion of a heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia or in existence of other malformations.
The Doppler scan is a special ultrasound technique to measure blood flow velocitiy and resistance in the vessels of the uterus as well as in baby´s vessels and organs. From the obtained data conclusions can be drawn about the adequate supply of the child with nutrients and oxygen, as well as on cardiac and circulatory function.
Most commonly we measure the blood flow in the umbilical cord and brain arteries of the baby and in the uterine arteries of the mother.
The 3D ultrasound is an ultrasound examination which is extended by one dimension opposite the two-dimensional and thus it is possible to represent the unborn child as well as its body parts spatially. In the case of the 4D ultrasound, the time is added as a 4th dimension, ie the three-dimensional image is generated in real time. For this reason, the 4D ultrasound is also called live 3D ultrasound. This results in a constantly updated, three-dimensional image on the monitor in which the child movements can be displayed in real time.
The examination can be used as a supplement to the conventional ultrasound examination for special questions, to the exclusion or detection of some malformations, but of course also at the request of the pregnant woman.
When is the best time for the scan?
The most beautiful pictures can be made in the second trimester between 24.-30. pregnancy week. The quality of the images depends on various factors, e.g. the amount of amniotic fluid, the thickness of the maternal abdominal wall, the location of the placenta and the baby´s position.
What should you pay attention to?
Please do not put any creams or lotions on your belly on the day of the examination.
How long does the scan take?
The 3D / 4D ultrasound examination takes 15-45 minutes depending on the ultrasound conditions and indication.
The amniocentesis is an invasive method of prenatal diagnosis, where fetal cells contained in the amniotic fluid are extracted by puncture through the abdominal wall.
How is amniocentesis performed?
First we look for a suitable place for the puncutre. Then under ultrasoung guidance a thin needle is inserted through the abdominal wall into the amniotic sac. We remove the amniotic fluid with a thin needle. The puncture feels like the blood sampling, so that local anaesthesia is unnecessary. The amniotic fluid and the cells contained therein are examined in the laboratory.
What can we detect?
In the amniotic fluid there are fetal cells of the gastrointestinal tract, the skin and the kidney system. Thus, one can make statements about hereditary diseases (e.g., chromosomal disorders such as trisomy 21), metabolic disorders, malformations of the central nervous system, or a blood group intolerance between mother and child.
When can amniocentesis be performed?
It can be performed from the 15th week of pregnancy to the end of pregnancy.
What kind of complications can occur?
There is a very low risk of miscarriage (0,5 %) due to premature onset of labour, loss of amniotic fluid, bleeding from the uterus or infection due to the procedure. Injury of the child is extremely rare.
The senology deals with the clarification and treatment of diseases of the breast.
Pain or nodes in breast lead to concern and anxiety. Using high-resolution breast ultrasound, both breasts and the lymph nodes can be examined without pain and radiation.
Dr. Jánky has long years of senological experience. She has been treating breast-cancer patients for many years at the Breast Center in Amberg. She also holds the DEGUM II qualification for breast ultrasound (mammasonography) and participates in regular training and congresses.
Core biopsy, fine needle aspiration
In the case of unclear findings, which are noticed during the examination, ultrasound scan or mammography, we can usually immediately take a tissue sample in local anesthesia under ultrasound control with a thin needle, which can be studied in the lab to see if cancer cells are present. The biopsy takes about 5-10 minutes and then you can follow your everyday activities without restriction.
Usually it takes 1-2 days to get the result of the biopsy, so you get a diagnosis in a very short time. Fortunately most biopsy result are not a cancer. But sometimes you may need another biopsy or a surgery to get a definitive diagnosis.
The care of our patients with breast cancer is based on national and international guidelines in cooperation with certified breast care centers.
