The Day aims to save millions of preventable deaths each year through education, raising awareness and by pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action against the deadly disease.

Among Arab-Israeli women, there is a continuous decline in cancer mortality between 1990 and 2016, by 0.5 percent. At the same time, with the increased aging population, environmental degradation and food safety issues, the incidence of cancer in China has seen an upward trend for many years.

He added that cervical cancer is treatable when detected early.

The HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine prevents against the human papillomavirus, which is the known cause of most cases of cervical cancer.

It is well accepted that screening saves lives, but in the United Kingdom we only now screen for three cancers; bowel, breast and cervical. The vaccine is most effective when administered between the ages of nine and 14.

A fingerprint authentication feature appears to be under development for Android and it could be released in the coming update. This is useful to keep your sensitive chat messages safe especially when you pass the phone to someone for a short while.

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.

The survey found that the rates of alcohol-related breast cancer are much higher in North East than the average for England. Lack of awareness The begging questions worth asking is: Are people still clueless of cancer symptoms? Cancer can be a devastating diagnosis, it is not without hope? Get educated about their specific risk factors as well as when to start and how often to receive cancer screenings. India accounts for more than half of new cancer cases in the world. These can vary from harnessing data using complex diagnostic algorithms on existing healthcare data to testing for cell-free DNA in the blood. Other factors may also be helpful such as avoiding habits that are among causes of cancer. For example, if you have lung cancer, DNA can break off and permeate the blood, which can then be identified by sophisticated techniques. We define "early detection" as the detection of cancer, or pre-cancerous states, at the earliest possible point at which an intervention might be made in order to lead to a better patient outcome.We need novel technology, including sensors, biochips and nanotechnology, to improve how we image and detect cancer, and we need multidisciplinary teams to develop the technology and ultimately to implement it in the appropriate clinical context. By 2030 it is expected to go up to 13million deaths- if we don't act now!

On personal level, with little effort, these relatively simple risk reduction strategies can help one to virtually eliminate cancer risk, and radically improve chances of recovering from cancer if one has it.
