Cancer Awareness, Early Detection and Treatment of Cancer in women
Public awareness about cancer has increased but it is limited to those with formal education living in urban settings. In rural India cancer still remains a myth and is viewed as disease with no definitive remedy.
The advent of new knowledge, advanced methods for early detection and a whole new armoury for treatment has already resulted in improved disease-free survivals. This community program with the theme ‘Cancer can be challenged, Cancer can be overcome’ aims at educating, counseling and detecting cancer by conducting health talks, diagnostic camps and screening tests like mammography and pap-smears in an attempt to reach people living in villages.
