Defeat Cancer with Early Detection
‘Right decisions at right time can make all the difference’. The statement holds true in the case of cancer and its treatment.  Every year, millions of people are diagnosed with cancer all around the world. A significant number of lives can be saved and cured from cancer with timely access to early detection and treatment.

Awareness is the Key— Awareness is the first step to conquer cancer. Despite the high number of new cases each year, cancer awareness is relatively low in India.  However, it is essential for everyone to be aware of this disease and how they can prevent and screen for it.

Self-Examination to Know the Warning Signs— Self-examination or regular body-checks can help you identify a lot of cancers in their early stages. There are about 200 different types of cancers that have different symptoms and it’s not possible to know all of them. But few cancers like breast cancer and testicular cancer can be identified with regular examination and touching and feeling of body.

Screening can Save Lives- Screening aims to identify individuals with an abnormality suggestive of a specific cancer. Regular Screenings allow us to identify anomalies in the body that we can then test for cancer. Screenings are also performed to identify and detect the stages of cancer. 

Early Detection is the Best Protection– Early detection is based on the concept that the sooner the cancer is detected, the more effective the treatment is likely to be. Early detection of Cancer helps to detect the cancer when it constricted to the organ of origin and before it spreads to the surrounding tissues and distant organs.
