Cancer risk is constantly on the rise with more than 1.16 million new cases, 784,800 deaths, and 2.26 million 5-year prevalent cases in the country’s population of 1.35 billion. India’s economic development has given rise to vast socio-economic changes, with an increasing risk of non-communicable diseases, including cancer, and significant disparities in access to cancer prevention and control service.
Globally, Cancer is the second leading cause of death, accounting for approximately 70 percent of mortalities in low- and middle-income countries. In 2018, 17 million new cases of cancer were newly diagnosed and an estimated 9.6 million people died due to cancer. An estimated 27.5 million new cases of cancer are projected to emerge each year by 2040. Moreover, COVID19 pandemic created unrest among cancer patients and challenges to Oncologists to copping up with stress and difficulties in treatment. Lakhs of people in India suffer from cancer of the lung, oral, breast, stomach, cervix, liver, prostate, and blood cancer. Other cancers that tend to occur are of the skin, bladder, and esophagus, and the cancer mortality is high in India. Genetic factors, hormonal imbalances, unhealthy lifestyles, and poor immune systems, environmental factors, delayed diagnosis and the lack of medical facilities can invite various types of cancers. This happens owing to the lack of awareness regarding this deadly disease. It is the need of the hour to educate people about the treatment, symptoms, detection and prevention, inform about regular screening and check-ups, include the ill-effects of cancer in the syllabus for children, conduct drives, campaign and initiatives and dispel myths regarding cancer.
