Among Arab-Israeli women, there is a continuous decline in cancer mortality between 1990 and 2016, by 0.5 percent.

Most people will know at least one person affected by cancer. Apart from ignorance on the part of the populace, World Health Organization says that in less than 30 per cent of low-income countries including Nigeria, generally accessible diagnosis, treatment services, and referral systems for suspected cancer are often unavailable resulting in delayed and fragmented care/ poor management.

According to healthcare professionals, breast cancer is the most common cancer among Pakistani women as 90,000 new cases are reported every year.

Balance, the North East Alcohol Office, is relaunching its Spot of Lunch campaign across TV, online and Facebook in a bid to inform women across the region to help them make more informed choices. Kujundžić said an increase in breast cancer screening rates from the current 60 to 80% would save 3,000 lives in Croatia annually. Screening identifies at most 10% of total cancers due to a combination of the type of cancers and the age groups offered screening.

The turnout to the early detection of colon cancer, to which people aged 50-74 are invited, is only 21%, while a programme for the early detection of cervical cancer is undergoing reorganisation. Cancer can be a devastating diagnosis, it is not without hope? India accounts for more than half of new cancer cases in the world. The notification data can be used to compile the national cancer registry. We need a shift of mindset to change from taking an early cancer screening to applying professional early prevention and control techniques.

As their first proposal, the MEP said, government should consider whether there is a need to introduce population-based screening for prostate cancer.

It also recognises the fact that we can work together to reduce cancer risk factors, and overcome barriers to early diagnosis, treatment and palliative care. By 2030 it is expected to go up to 13million deaths- if we don't act now! This is partly due to our relative unwillingness to test for cancer, but it is encouraging that an increasing amount of people are benefiting from the two-week specialist referral scheme.

The day empowers all across the world to show support, raise collective voices, take personal action and press governments and their agencies to do more.

Additionally, one can reduce the risk of Cervical Cancer by adopting safe sex practices, such as the use of condoms and timely treatment of infections of the reproductive tract.
