Prevention: Screening is the number one way you can minimize your risk of cancer. While screening is the essential step you can take – it’s not the only one. You can take charge of your health by knowing your family history and possible risk factors, eating a balanced diet, exercising, limiting alcohol use and not smoking. Together, this is cancer we can do something about.
Early Detection: Cancer that’s diagnosed at an early stage, before it’s had the chance to get too big or spread is more likely to be treated successfully. If cancer has spread, treatment becomes more difficult, and generally, a person’s chances of surviving are much lower. More than 90% of women diagnosed with breast cancer at the earliest stage survive their disease for at least 5 years compared to around 15% for women diagnosed with the most advanced stage of the disease.
Women Health: CPF was founded in an effort to address the inadequate information and awareness available on women’s health and to bring issues of women’s health to the forefront of basic healthcare awareness. Through advocacy, education, and promotion, We have been making significant strides toward the advancement of women’s health throughout India.
