Cancer in Women in India

In India from 1990 to 2016 (26 year period), the burden of cancer has doubled, according to a LANCET study published in 2018. At about the same time United Nations announced as a Sustainable Development Goal that deaths due to cancer are abnormally high and need to be reduced by 30%.

Cervical cancer continues to be the commonest Cancer in women and WHO has given a call to eliminate this disease by 2030. It is primarily caused on Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). This has now become possible because of the availability of vaccines, many methods for screening women and availability of treatment modalities for pre and early cancers. Today Cervical Cancer is a Preventable Cancer and all efforts must be made to screen women when the disease is in pre invasive state.

These facilities are available at Breach Candy Hospital Trust. Screening by Pap smear and HPV testing is being done routinely. For those detected early, treatment by ablative and excisional methods can be done in this hospital. It will not be difficult to set up a Vaccination programme as the current vaccines are available and Indian Vaccine from Serum Institute of India will soon be introduced.

Breast Cancer Incidence has increased by 40.7%. In many urban centres, Breast Cancer has overtaken Cervical cancer as the number one cancer in women. Treatment if given in early stages gives excellent results and mortality can definitely be reduced by early detection. For this regular Breast check up by the patient herself or by a Physician is recommended. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is a main procedure which can be done at out patient clinic which will rule out cancer in any lump which can be detected by patient and physician. A periodic Mammography check up and close follow up of high risk cases is of great significance. These facilities are freely available in Breach Candy Hospital Trust.

Thus Breach Candy Hospital Trust is in an excellent position to promote the control of Breast and Cervical Cancer and is ideally suited to reduce the burden of these common Cancers in India. It will greatly contribute to the alleviation of human suffering which is the avowed goal for all Medical Services.
