Monday marks World Cancer Day”

Today is world cancer day. Its theme for 2019 is "I am and I will".

Last year, there were over 18 million new cases of cancer diagnosed.

To accelerate Region-wide progress and counter the fact that more than 67% of the Region's cancer patients die before the age of 70, several core initiatives must be strengthened.

Cancer is much easier to diagnose when there is a single symptom directly related to the type of cancer it's likely to be, in comparison to a single symptom that could be a variety of cancers.

In Croatia, there are 170,000 people who had cancer at one point in their lives. While skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are more common, melanoma is responsible for the majority of deaths from skin cancer.

According to a report, almost 50 per cent of women aged between 45 and 65 were found to have the highest risk of cervical cancer.

All about cervical cancer.

Nowadays, "cancer of poverty" has decreased due to improved living conditions. Additionally, sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy food consumption, obesity, stress and smoking have also contributed to the rising incidence for breast cancer.

The latest statistics indicate nearly one in five cancer sufferers (19.6%) have had to wait over the 62-day target from referral to first treatment. While "cancer of poverty" has not yet been fully controlled, "cancer of affluence" has already hit the country.

It is startling that almost two-thirds (65%) of cancer sufferers do not have a single protection product in place, according to The Exeter's "An Unhealthy Situation" report.

In terms of risk factors and awareness, Croatia is ranked among the worst, while in terms of screening, diagnostics and therapy, it is in the top third of developed countries. That compares to more than 90% of high-income countries. In 2015, there were 680,000 new stomach cancer cases and 500,000 deaths, accounting for almost one-third of all cancers in China.

On average, almost 1,364 patients died of stomach cancer every day, and that is six people every minute.

However, currently, Rwanda has five hospitals that can provide cancer treatment.

In Rwanda, screening can be done in 26 hospitals and 240 health centres.

The major cancers in Israeli men are prostate, lung, and colon cancers.

How will China deal with the serious problem of cancer? While seeking new multidisciplinary treatments, we need to learn how to prevent and screen cancer.

The successful experience of stomach cancer prevention and control in Japan is a good reference.

February 4 is World Cancer Day- global observance that helps raise people's awareness of cancer and how to prevent, detect, and treat it. The government must make policies to build a national cancer prevention and control system and emphasize on individuals' role in cancer prevention.

Low-dose CT scanning for lung cancer is expected to begin soon, it was announced. "We also need a change in eating habits, promote more physical activity against other types of cancer", he said. Through this awareness program we are education women about early detection and awareness.
