Cancer, the name itself is dangerous enough to frighten anyone. But for Indians, it is a term to be associated with ‘other’ people. They very generally ignore this term when it comes to them. They do not consider Cancer to be something that can happen to them. And as a result, they ignore all the symptoms of the life-taking disease and the disease develops itself making it incurable with time. Cancer was supposed to be the disease of the west. But, in contemporary India, it is a bitter truth. With every passing day, Cancer is getting hold of more and more people in India.
Cancer has taken one of the top ranks when it comes to killing people in India. Different types of cancer take about 1300 lives every day in India and the statistics are on the rise.
- Changing lifestyle
- Sedentary Living
- Bad food habits
- Change in sexual life (without being careful enough)
- Pollution of all kinds
Why not cured at earlier stages?
Cancer is divided into several stages depending on its severity. The more time it gets to develop itself the more dangerous it gets. Most of the Cancer Patients in India are detected at a stage where there is no way back to normalcy. People ignore all kinds of symptoms and as a result, the Cancer cells take over their body.
The way out:
- Be informed about Cancer to enable early detection.
- Report any alien symptom to your Doctor.
- Don’t ignore any unusual activity happening within your body for more than 2 weeks.
- Be more vigilant towards eating healthy
- Regular exercise
- No smoking
- No alcohol consumption
In a developing country like India, where health is taking the back seat in the contemporary lifestyle, the rise of Cancer is inevitable. While medical sciences have improved enough to cope with the earlier stages, it has not been able to discover the magic wand to totally eradicate it. Therefore, it becomes very important to prioritize the needs of your body and notice every slight change so that you can fight with it before it takes over you.
