Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI) takes initiative to spread awareness on timely detection & prevention of Cancer on World Cancer Day.

Date : February 03, 2016

Doctors at Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI) 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. Vedant Kabra, Director, Department of Surgical Oncology, Fortis Memorial Research Institute, Gurgaon said that, “According to statistics, nearly 10 lakh Indians die prematurely due to tobacco consumption every year. Globally it is 55 lakhs so one fifth of tobacco related deaths take place in India which equals to one life being lost every eight seconds due to tobacco. Tobacco is the leading cause of non-communicable diseases. Children and adolescent girls and boys who consume tobacco will sooner or later contract cancer of the lungs and oral cavity and die a painful, premature death. India is known as the oral cancer capital of the world due to the largest number of cases of oral cancers caused by tobacco use. In addition, tobacco is also a major cause of cardio-vascular and respiratory diseases. We are observing increased cases of lung cancer, perhaps due to rising tobacco use. Any form of tobacco consumption should, therefore, be completely avoided as it leads to serious diseases.”
