Cancer is one of the leading causes of deaths in India, which has nearly three million patients suffering from the disease. Annually, over half a million (about 5.5 lakh) people die of cancer in India. The WHO said this number is expected to rise to 700,000 by 2015-16. Experts say the incidence of the cancer is projected to grow five-fold by 2025. However, several cancers are treatable, and the survival rate among common cancer patients does see a rise.
Many cancers are curable, but treatment does affect the patient's quality of life and impacts the family and other carers. With the right care and support, it is possible to smoothen the treatment experience for both - the patient and family. Cancer patients have very specific needs for recovery and attention. To meet growing challenges posed by cancer, Care 24 has launched Cancer Care, which is available at a cancer patient's home.
