The cancer burden continues to grow globally, exerting tremendous physical, emotional and financial strain on individuals, families, communities and health systems. Cancer responds to effective treatment when identified early, resulting in a greater probability of surviving as well as less morbidity and less expensive treatment.
Early diagnosis identifies symptomatic cancer cases at the earliest possible stage. Cancer Screening aims to identify individuals with pre-cancer conditions and refer them promptly for diagnosis and treatment. Cancer treatment options include surgery, cancer medicines and/or radiotherapy, administered alone or in combination. A multidisciplinary team of cancer professionals recommends the best possible treatment plan based on tumour type, cancer stage, clinical and other factors.
