World Cancer Day

February 2020

The International Union Against Cancer (UICC) has been holding this annual event since 2005. The goal of World Cancer Day is to raise public awareness of the global character of cancer. Cancer is always a tragedy. However, specialists know very well the causes of this disease that makes it possible to prevent a third of the potential cases from occurring. When a tumor is detected at an early stage it can be treated successfully. Medical science is developing new cures every year, which may lead to finding a vaccine against all types of cancer in the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, doctors advise people to lead a healthy lifestyle and abstain from smoking and drinking.
