EARLY CANCER DIAGNOSIS SAVES LIFE AND CUTS TREATMENT COST:

We to improve the chances of survival for people living with cancer by ensuring that health services can focus on diagnosing and treating the disease earlier. Each year 8.8 million people die from cancer, mostly in low- and middle-income countries. One problem is that many cancer cases are diagnosed too late. Even in countries with optimal health systems and services, many cancer cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage, when they are harder to treat successfully.

“Diagnosing cancer in late stages, and the inability to provide treatment, condemns many people to unnecessary suffering and early death,”, says Dr G Govindaraj (Surgical Oncologist)

The three steps to early diagnosis are:

Improve public awareness of different cancer symptoms and encourage people to seek care when these arise.
Invest in strengthening and equipping health services and training health workers so they can conduct accurate and timely diagnostics.
Ensure people living with cancer can access safe and effective treatment, including pain relief, without incurring prohibitive personal or financial hardship.
Challenges are clearly greater in low- and middle-income countries, which have lower abilities to provide access to effective diagnostic services, including imaging, laboratory tests, and pathology – all key to helping detect cancers and plan treatment. Countries also currently have different capacities to refer cancer patients to the appropriate level of care.

Harshamitra cancer centre KNOW CANCER, NO CANCER

Cancer is one of the leading causes of mortality among adults in India. In 2016, about 14 lakh cases of cancer were recorded

Among these recorded cases, it is more of women than men, who have been diagnosed with cancer, with the most common forms being breast, lung and cervical cancer.

Statistics on how cancer strikes more women

”One woman dies of cervical cancer every 8 minutes in India,” while, ”For every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, one woman dies of it in India.”

The fact that more number of women have cancer than men in India reverses the global trend, which sees a 25 per cent higher cancer incidence of men than women.

According to a recently released World Cancer Report, 5.37 lakh Indian women were diagnosed with cancer in 2012, as compared to 4.77 lakh men. On the other hand, death caused by cancer is higher among men, as compared to women.

To bring about a change in a society it is really effective when we teach the younger generation. These kids are very strong in carrying forward the messages. Hence giving Cancer awareness to school students are in particular very efficient.

GET CHECKED TO KNOW YOURSELF BETTER !

It is always better to get checked ourselves rather than getting the worst part later. Thermogram is a technique to detect the presence of breast cancer even 10 years prior to the onset of the disease. We are the first of this kind to have this in the whole Tamilnadu.
 
On 03.11.2019 (Sunday), we had Thermogram Cancer Screening at National Institute of Technology(Trichy). Nearly 83 women came forward to get themselves checked by our team of Physicians and Paramedics. 
 
We thank the Co ordinators of NIT for making the Cancer Screening Camp happen.

WINK on PINK will make you THINK!

Trichy’s most famous icon turned pink as part of a push for breast cancer awareness. October is breast cancer awareness month, and Harshamitra Cancer Center and Research Institute did their part to raise massive awareness by lighting the ROCKFORT in pink throughout this month. 

 
Lighting up the Rockfort in pink was “more than a symbol – it’s a sign of victory over this illness”. Indeed, breast cancer is the deadliest cancer for women in India but early diagnosis by routine screening saves life. Every year, breast cancer kills more than 500,000 women around the world. A majority of women with breast cancer are diagnosed at an advanced stage of disease, resulting in low survival rates. 

In a global effort to raise awareness on breast cancer, October has been designated as Pink month by WHO (World Health Organisation ) with efforts to educate those concerned about the disease, including early identification and signs and symptoms associated with breast cancer so that they self-examine themselves once a month for any early signs, to visit their doctor regularly, and to get mammography periodically – highlighting that 90% of early stage breast cancers are curable, often with treatments that conserve the breast.

Rockfort glows pink in view of – “Pink October”

This initiative has been taken by Harshamitra cancer centre and Rosegarden charitable trust.

Please spread this message and make the people aware of breast cancer.

All women above 40 should undergo breast check up every year.

Let’s do it for our loved ones at home!
