25% discount on all DXA bone density tests for cancer patients at Excelsior Medical Center

Cancer patients are among the people who are particularly prone to developing osteoporosis as a result of their treatments.

For the treatment of cancers such as breast or prostate cancer, in which hormones play an important role in the growth of cancer cells, so-called ‘hormone therapy’ or, more precisely, anti-hormone therapy is applied. It uses drugs that prevent cancer cells from growing by disrupting, blocking or stopping the specific hormone mechanism that ‘feeds’ the bad cells. Most often, it is the hormones estrogen or testosterone, the reduction of which contributes to the loss of bone mass and density. Thus, hormone therapies can cause damage and weakness in the bones and increase the risk of fractures and the development of osteoporosis by many times.

Other factors that contribute to bone loss in these patients may include:
1. Effects of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and corticosteroids;
2. Bone cancer;
3. Cancer that has spread to a bone.

These risk factors are not dependent on and cannot be changed by patients. At our medical center, we have special consideration for people who are undergoing or have undergone treatment for cancer. As a sign of commitment, we provide a permanent 25% discount on all bone density tests for these patients.
