Today is World Cancer Day and this year the focus is on prevention by early diagnosis.

In Croatia, there are 170,000 people who had cancer at one point in their lives. Currently, 20% of these patients with symptoms from their cancer present with an emergency complication of their disease, such as haemorrhage.

On average, almost 1,364 patients died of stomach cancer every day, and that is six people every minute.

The remaining 90% of those left over will develop a cancer symptom, such as a seizure resulting from a brain tumour or a lump resulting in breast cancer and will consult their GP. It is better to get tested for any signs since the disease can be treated faster and better when detected through early diagnosis.

"Thousands of lives can be saved in Africa with proper cancer prevention, early detection, access to proper treatment and care", she said.

But despite the positives of spotting cancer early, many factors can stand in the way, from socioeconomic disadvantages to social taboos and even physical barriers.

MEP Francis Zammit Dimech said that in Malta, there are around 2,000 cases of cancer each year, and 900 deaths from it.

Sarah Sanders Has A New Name For Trump's 'Executive Time'
As Axios reports, Trump "usually spends the first 5 hours of the day" in "Executive Time". Axios reports that on January 18, the President had seven hours of Executive Time.

However, Japan is the country with the highest recovery rate of stomach cancer in the world.

In the United Kingdom, although £1bn is spent by the NHS on cancer diagnosis each year, there is still a relative unwillingness to test for cancer in comparison to other European Union counterparts, perhaps due to expectations of benign results.

Dr. Walter said tobacco smoke has more than 50 toxic chemicals that cause cancer and in an enclosed area, the toxic smoke stays in the air for more than four hours - increasing the risks for non-smokers.

Some 9.6 million people die from cancer every year and at least one-third of common cancers are preventable according to experts who point out that cancer is the second-leading cause of deaths worldwide.

How will China deal with the serious problem of cancer? To that extent, World Cancer Day, which falls on every February 4, is seen by those engaged in the campaign to prevent or find a cure for it, as a powerful opportunity to speak out, to call for action, to listen to cancer patients and their families, and to give them a voice. While seeking new multidisciplinary treatments, we need to learn how to prevent and screen cancer. The government must make policies to build a national cancer prevention and control system and emphasize on individuals' role in cancer prevention.

A group of Bangladeshi specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeons on Monday urged the people and the government to raise awareness about the dangers of oral cancer. "By having a regular Pap, you can prevent cervical cancer". But are we doing enough locally to create a first-line-of-defence against cancer in Samoa?
