40% Cancer Cases Caused due to Tobacco : Dr Rajesh Grover


BM Bureau :  Senior Cancer Specialist & Founder Director of Delhi Cancer Institute Dr Rajesh Grover has stated that 40% of the cancers found in the country are caused by tobacco and early detection and treatment of cancer can save the patient from the jaws of death. He was speaking at the Pioneer Cancer Symposium that was organised by the KLE Cancer Hospital. Noted doctors, students and Cancer specialists took part in the symposium and presented their papers.

“ While Cancer is on the rise, medicinal Science too is transforming and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now playing an important and vital role in health care. AI will also help in the accurate diagnosis of cancer. But there should be no blind faith and over reliance on the treatment of the ailment,” Dr Grover said lauding the advancements made by the Dr Prabhakar Kore Hospital & the hi-tech KLE Cancer Hospital.

KAHER Vice Chancellor Dr Nitin Gangane said that treating cancer patients is a very tough task. “ Patients are also stuck in the jaws of death as they hesitate to seek treatment. So they need to be persuaded and treated. Donors should come forward to serve socially like Tata Memorial Hospital,” Dr Gangane said seeking cooperation to keep the society healthy.
