Fortis Escorts Hospital Faridabad initiates spreading awareness on early detection and prevention of Cancer on World Cancer Day

Date : February 03, 2016

Doctors at Fortis Escorts Hospital, Faridabad emphasized that it is critical to understand cancer, the key symptoms and early warning signs facts and trends and ways to prevent some types of cancer that the public needs to know so that they are equipped with the knowledge to battle it, adopt healthier lifestyle approaches and emerge victorious.

Dr. Mohit Sharma, Consultant, Medical Oncology, Fortis Escorts Hospital, Faridabad said, “Cancer is a malignant growth or tumour in any part of the body, resulting from an uncontrolled division of cells. In India, the most prevalent forms of cancers among women are breast and cervical cancer; whereas in men, it is lung, head and neck cancers. The early symptoms of cancer can be any uncontrolled growth, difficulty in swallowing, excess coughing, bleeding from the mouth or other parts, excess bloating of the stomach and unexplained weight loss. Any of these may point to cancer and need immediate investigation. But the good news is that cancer is preventable and curable if detected at early stages. With a few simple lifestyle changes, you can drastically reduce your risk of many types of cancer. Simple exercising like walking and yoga also contributes to a heathy lifestyle. Exercises like swimming, hiking and cycling may fall in a slightly strenuous activity but go a significant way in contributing to a healthy lifestyle.”

What is Cancer? Cancer is a malignant growth or tumour in any part of the body, resulting from an uncontrolled division of cells. These genes are activated by mutations that are a result of environment or lifestyle influences such as tobacco, alcohol, radiation, harmful pollutants, etc. When this tumour spreads to other parts of the body, it is called a secondary tumour or a metastasis. Cancer may come back some time after its initial treatment. It could be because the original treatment did not get rid of all the cancer cells or that some cancer cells have spread to other parts of the body and gradually grown there to form a tumour. Sometimes cancer can become resistant to cancer drug treatment.
