Global Cancer Trust Provides Ultra Modern Technology for Cancer Treatment
News Desk, News Nation 360 : A Kolkata based registered Non-Governmental Organization, Global Cancer Trust organized a unique interactive session with rare cancer survivors from Eastern India. The patients who have survived the rarest form of the disease shared their experience on how they were treated by the doctors of Global Cancer Trust. As India continues to age, cancer cases is set to double every 20 years, says a report from WHO. In India, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and Odisha are currently passing through huge epidemiological changes, will bear the biggest cancer burden in the next 10-20 years. These states, which
already have a huge gap in demand and supply of this particular disease treatment facilities, will face even bigger challenges if steps are not taken to address the gap immediately, said the study, which appeared in the latest issue of the Journal of Global Oncology. Doctors sometimes rely on Robotic Surgery for removing, hard to reach tumours, this eventually will shorten surgery timers or lessen side effects for patients compared to traditional surgery. The success of robotic surgery depends on several factors, including the type of cancer, where on the body the surgery will be performed, prior surgery the patient has had, and the surgeon’s preference and experience. It is also cost-efficient than traditional surgery. Dr Vibha Agarwal, HHC (Holistic Health Coach) and Co-Founder of Global Cancer Trust commented that in India, the cancer detection system needs improvement, as there are very few mammograms and PET-CT scans. Oral Cancer is predominant among the lower socio-economic groups due to tobacco addiction. At least, 1,797,900 women in India may have breast cancer by 2020 and disease literacy among women aged 40-60 is essential for early detection. Cervical cancer in women accounts for 12 per cent of cancer cases in India. Urban Indian men are affected by prostate, lung and colorectal cancer while women suffer from endometrial, lung and ovarian cancer. The programme was attended by one cancer survivor with the help of Dr Vibha Agarwal in Kolkata.
