Preventive Oncology Program
Cancer is the leading cause of mortality worldwide. Globally, cancer is the second leading cause of death. Studies suggest that one half of all cancers arise from modifiable risk factors or can be detected before the disease develops and spreads in the body. Essentially, preventive oncology includes measures taken to prevent development or progression of cancer. There are three stages of cancer prevention:
- Primary prevention- Modifying risk factors before the development of disease
- Secondary prevention- The stage before the onset of clinical symptoms or signs
- Tertiary prevention- Decreasing complications and recurrence of disease after its development
At BLK Cancer Centre, we provide a holistic approach in preventing and curing cancer in a patient-focused environment, together with our state-of-the-art technology and latest facilities.
