Over 70% of cases report in advanced stage of the disease, resulting in poor survival. The only way to win battle against cancer is through Prevention & Early Detection. Preventive oncology embraces measures that may be taken to prevent the development or progression of malignant disease. Healthy lifestyle holds the key to cancer prevention. Up to 40% of all cancers can be prevented by avoiding tobacco and adopting other healthy habits. Regular screening helps detect many cancers in early stages, when they can be treated successfully. Department of Preventive Oncology primarily focuses on creating awareness among the public about the need to screen for early detection of cancer. Department provides screening for three most common cancers (Breast, Cervix, and Oral cancers) at highly subsidized rates in the OPD and totally free of cost through community based cancer detection camps.
