Incidence of cancer in India is on the rise it makes the families suffer mentally and financially, early detection of disease makes the treatment possible & effective.
Breast and cervical cancer are the most common cancers in women in our country, while in males lungs, mouth and throat cancer are more common, because of tobacco Consumption. Treatment is possible if these diseases are detected in time, but due to ignorance & hesitancy & misconceptions in people, they don’t go to the hospital for initial screening, and this is the reason that the cancer is detected late & treatment is not effective.
On this occasion, Dr NK Pandey, Chairman and MD, Asian Hospital said that Asian Hospital has prepared a cancer mobile van equipped with modern techniques to ease the detection of cancer in patients. This cancer van created by Asian is aimed at going from door to door to villages and other backward areas to check cancer and these investigations will be free of cost.
This mobile van has the facility of full body X-ray, mammography, blood and stool test and papmsmear by modern equipment equipped in this van will create awareness amongst people the importance of early detection of disease. Lady Doctors, technicians and radiologists will be present in this van, which will make people aware about cancer.
This van will go to the villages of Haryana, especially Faridabad, Ballabgarh, Palwal and Rajasthan, to do initial screening of cancer. We are happy that we are taking an important step in the prevention of this rapidly spreading disease in the country.
