HCG Cancer Center (A unit of Health Care Global Enterprises Limited) on 03rd April 2021 in Vishakapataman in association with Miss Vizag final contestants and in presence of Smt Golagani Hari Venkata Kumari ( Mayor Visakhapatnam) launched a mammogram package for Rs 365 with a concept that if you save Rs 1 per day for a year it would be helpful for your health. Early detection of breast cancer would help in better chances of complete cure.
This type of campaign was coupled by encouraging all the women get regular breast examinations done. This was followed by interaction by our Mayor and Miss Vizag team with the patients to encourage them to fight against cancer, This activity signifies the simple message of I am and I will encourage everyone to fight against cancer.
HCG Cancer Centre and Foundation’s aim is to encourage people in the fight against cancer, we think everybody who joins the fight is a hero, from people affected by cancer to caregivers and supporters i.e. people of Visakhapatnam. As per WHO, in urban areas, 1 woman in every 22 women is prone to breast cancer and in rural areas, 1 woman in every 66 women is prone to breast cancer.
Inculcating self-breast examination which will just take 60 seconds in daily life will help in early detection of cancer which will help doctors to treat cancer appropriately resulting in a better quality of life and survival for the cancer survivor post-treatment.
