More Younger you are, More you succumb to it

Yes, Cancer is like this. In some cases it responses in favour of you if you are older. Sound Odd!!

It has to. But this is how it is. Unpredictable!!

This is what PGIMER Doctors said in the CME of Cancer Registry wherein policy makers showed their concerns for this Plightful pain of sufferers.

Cancer is hormonal game and every cancer has a different story to say. If agreeing with the doctors what they say, here In India, 85 percent of Cancers can be cured if reported in time. As according to Prof J S Thakur of Non Communicable Diseases Department of PGIMER, Chandigarh, Considering this 85 percent of Cancer patients, maximum people have a habit of consuming Tobacco in one or other forms.

The Story of Breast Cancer sufferers is quite different. First of all, let us tell you that Cancer does not mean “Death”, not at all. Since, We already have said earlier that it is a Hormonal Game. In young age hormones are aggressive hence so as cancer growth is!! Now, In case of Breast Cancer, Chandigarh Ladies graph is quite high in country. Its 35 after 1 lac ladies of Chandigarh.

As per Dr Thakur, in the age of 58, after menopausal, hormones go suppressed and survival rate is high. Even Doctors treat young ladies more aggressively than older ones said Dr Thakur. So, ladies are asked to get their tests done for BRCA 1 and BRCA2 Gene.
