Early Detection – Overcoming Cancer the Wise Way

Early Detection – Overcoming Cancer the Wise Way

The World Health Organisation (WHO) highlights that most cases of cancer are identified only in the advanced stages. This is the reason why most cancer cases turn out to be untreatable. India has a lot of such cases.

Head and Neck cancers, Cervical cancer and Breast cancer are the most prevalent cancers in India. Oncologists at Apollo Hospitals say that these cancers are 100% curable if detected early. Cancer screening is one way to solve this problem. Checking for cancer in people who do not have any symptoms of the disease is called screening.

There are proven screening methods that can identify these types of cancers at an early stage when they are still curable. However, the main problem is, in initial stages, the patient is totally asymptomatic.

Apollo’s cancer screening program has been designed to stay one step ahead of the disease. Apollo has different cancer screening packages for men and women. The packages include:

Cancer Screening (Male)
