Experts for early detection to prevent cancer disease

BSS

Health experts today laid emphasis on early detection of cancer to save lives of the people from the killer disease, reports BSS.  “Prevention and early detection have already had a tremendous impact on reducing cancer death rates,” the speakers said at a media orientation programme on cancer at Jatiya Press Club here, organised by Anwer Khan Modern Medical College and Hospital.

Head of Clinical Oncology Professor Dr M Ehteshamul Hoque, Prof Dr M Atiqur Rahman, Assistant Prof of Gynaecology and Obstetrics and Prof Dr ME M Nasim Mohammadi Khandker are the main discussants, among others. Early diagnosis of cancer generally increases the chances for successful treatment by focusing on detecting symptomatic patients as early as possible, they said, adding, “Delays in accessing cancer care are common with late-stage presentation, particularly in lower resource settings and vulnerable populations.”

The consequences of delayed or inaccessible cancer care are lower likelihood of survival, greater morbidity of treatment and higher costs of care, resulting in avoidable deaths and disability from cancer, the speakers said. Early diagnosis improves cancer outcomes by providing care at the earliest possible stage and is therefore an important public health strategy in all settings, they added.
