Prevention, Early Diagnosis and Treatment Help Could Help In Cancer Cases.
The WHO European Region diagnoses 4.6 million cancer cases every year, and 2.1 million of these statistics die from cancer.
20% of these cases are lung cancer, 12% are colorectal, 6% pancreatic, 5.7% stomach cancer, and 7% breast cancer.
More prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment can help in these cases, saving more lives every year.
3 Key Points
1. Preventive measures such as cautionary consumption of tobacco and alcohol can prevent you from having lung cancer. Tracking your diet and physical activity can also prevent cancer cases. Regular vaccination is necessary, as well.
2. Early diagnosis and screening can help you detect cases at an early stage. It is effective for cervical, colorectal, and breast cancer cases.
3. For cases where prevention and treatment aren’t possible, effective palliative care can be used to ensure that the terminal disease doesn’t make the end of one’s life painful. It provides symptomatic relief for those with cancer.
“Cervical Cancer kills 28,000 women in the Region annually. Today’s Global Cancer Report shows that our Region lags behind some others in cervical cancer screening – the most effective cancer screening program we currently have.” – Dr. Hans Kluge, WHO Regional Director for Europe.
