This World Cancer Day : “Debunk the Myths”.

World Cancer Day (4 February 2014) is a distinguished event around the world which is focusing on Target 5 of the World Cancer Declaration: Reduce stigma and dispel myths about cancer, under the tagline “Debunk the myths”.
On World Cancer Day let’s raise our collective voices to improve general knowledge around cancer and dismiss the misconceptions about the disease. Let’s Debunk the Myths together.
Myth #1There is no need to talk about Cancer
Cancer can have multiple causes, ranging from environmental to genetics; if you are susceptible to it, please discuss it with us. We at Narayana Health have an advanced cancer diagnostic facility to tackle all types of cancer.
Myth #2
There are no signs or symptoms in Cancer
Cancer is a great imitator. And it is not uncommon for people diagnosed with cancer to have been treated for other diseases. But for many cancers, there are warning signs and symptoms and the benefits of early detection are indisputable. We at Narayana Health have years of expertise in successfully diagnosing and handling all types of cancer.
Myth #3
There is nothing one can do about Cancer.
The truth is, that there is a lot that can be done, and with the right practices and proper medical help, a third of the most common cancers can be prevented. Narayana Health’s pioneering surgical, medical and research facility offers cutting-edge treatment and a patient-centric approach to successfully diagnose and treat all types of cancer.  Our superior standards and treatment protocols for a range of cancers, backed by research into new science and therapies, lead to excellent clinical care and improved results.
Myth #4
Everyone doesn’t have the right to Cancer care.
Access to effective, quality and affordable cancer services is the right of all individuals. The 1400 bedded Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Center, at Narayana Health City is equipped with the largest Bone Marrow Transplant Center in Asia, and stands as a one-point, affordable destination for patients with all types of cancer.
