Cancer is one of the world’s leading causes of death, and its burden is growing. In 2021, the world crossed a new threshold – an estimated 20 million people were diagnosed with cancer, and 10 million died. These numbers will continue to rise in the decades ahead. And yet all cancers can be treated, and many can be prevented . Cancer mortality can be reduced if cases are detected and treated early.
Cancer can be eradicated through early detection of cancer and appropriate treatment and care of patients who develop cancer.
Many cancers have a high chance of cure if diagnosed early and treated appropriately. Said Dr Ashu shah Director of Asian Health care .
She said our ASC Foundation efforts are focused on breast cancer , cervical cancer, Lung cancer and childhood cancer . All cancer can be eliminated easily by early detection and screening. Dr Ashu shah said solutions are complex which is why we are glad to partner with Intass oncology to raise awareness and address these challenges .
There are two components of Early detection :
Early cancer is more likely to respond to treatment and can result in a greater probability of survival and less morbidity, as well as less physical ,mental and financial suffering.
Early detection of Cancer can also reduces Chances of serious and more painful therapies that are needed in later stages .
There are two major enabling factors for early detection .
1 Education and Awareness to promote early diagnosis.
2.Screening tests to detect them early .
Screening is the basic important element of comprehensive cancer prevention and control but decisions on what to include in a cancer programme
I always emphasize that The best examiners are You in You.
It is said to notice symptoms like lump in the breasts . Unfortunately it is presented at late stages . It is time to wake up.The best time to examine your breast every month is immediately after your periods .
This World Cancer Day , my appeal / request to GOI ( Govt . Of India ) is to provide Free Mammogram and HPV ( Human papillomavirus virus ) vaccination to all and It is high time our leaders should raise the awareness and provide free Mammogram facility in all Government hospitals instead of women getting it done at private hospitals as most of them are not in a position to pay .
Mainly the government hospitals should have free mammogram facilities to all which helps in curbing this dreaded disease with earlier detection.
We are now in an age where new technology and care counter cancer’s fatality
Let us pledge to create awareness and unite in this fight against cancers and close the care gap!
