Old airport road, Bengaluru Feb 9, 2017
Today, Cancer has become one of the major causes of death. More than thousand people succumb to cancer every day. According to studies, oral and lung cancer are most common diseases among men whereas breast and cervix cancer are most common among women. In most of the cases, people are not even aware about the cancer till arriving the stage of the disease where treatment can put the life at risk. Besides in most of the cases, signs and symptoms appear in the advanced stage of the disease. Main reason why the death rate due to cancer is increasing day by day is “lack of awareness and delay in treatment”. Hence it is very important to treat cancer before it arrives to its advanced stage, which can reduce the risk of fatality due to this “silent killer”.
Cancer screening aims at discovering the malignancy before symptoms appear. Cancer may develop in the patient even when he/she is feeling fine and having a healthy lifestyle (mainly due to any medical history of cancer). Screening tests can help prevent cancer by detecting changes in the body which may lead to cancer if left untreated.
As cancer is a by-product of unhealthy lifestyle such as consumption of alcohol, drugs etc., it is very important to have cancer screening on a regular basis to avoid the disease and also to follow a healthy lifestyle which may not lead to recurring of the cancer.
The main goal of cancer screening is to reduce the number of people perishing due to cancer and to eliminate the disease. Since treatment for former stage is less aggressive than that for the advanced stage.
