Book on cancer ‘I am Unstoppable’ launched
Hyderabad, 5th September, 2021: This book offers support to patients with all types of cancer with the mission: 'No one faces cancer alone'. It includes inspiring stories of patients who have been treated by us and have won the battle against Cancer. It also includes the latest medical technology, emotional well-being, integrative oncology, and much more needed information about cancer.
According to the report released by the ICMR, the number of cancer cases in India is estimated to be 13.9 lakh this year and may increase to 15.7 lakh by 2025, with its prevalence being marginally higher among women, according to a report. This is largely explainable in terms of increasing life-expectancy, changing demography, rapid urbanisation, the pernicious impact of addictions, western diet, sedentary work and work-life imbalance.
