Sources from Chennai stated that More than 7.8 lakh died due to cancer in 2018 and every year over 11 lakh people are newly registered for cancer as per the records under National Cancer Registry Program. Meanwhile despite being a curable disease, late detection and lack of affordability of treatment procedures makes it a major challenge in health care.



Furthermore on World Cancer Day, medicos discuss how early detection and proper management can significantly reduce the death rates from cancer. Recently estimates suggest that more than 22.5 lakh people are living with cancer, while the risk of developing cancer before the age of 75 years is more than 9%. Further when identified early, cancer is more likely to respond to effective treatment and can result in a greater probability of surviving.

Dr S Rajasundaram, director, oncology, Gleneagles Global Health City said “Most of the common cancer types, such as breast cancer, cervical cancer, oral cancer, and colorectal cancer have high cure rates when detected early and treated according to best practices. Moreover even when cancerous cells have travelled to other areas of the body, such as testicular seminoma and leukaemias and lymphomas in children, can have high cure rates if appropriate treatment is provided at an early stage”.
