 Walk for Spreading Awareness About Various Gynaecological Cancers

Activists revealed that a walk was organized to spread awareness about the various gynaecological cancers prevalent among women.

Organised by NGO Globeathon, the Association of Gynaecologic Oncologists of India (AGOI) and BLK Super Speciality Hospital, the cause has been promoted in Bangalore, Cuttack, Patna and Jammu along with Delhi.


"In this sedentary lifestyle, we hardly notice one important thing in our life which is our health and gynaecological cancers are one which are very much prevalent in India," said Palakshi Goswami, a PR professional and a participant.

"A little awareness and will can eradicate it from roots," she added.

According to Praneet Kumar, CEO, BLK Super Speciality hospital, over 70 percent of patients report for diagnostic and treatment services at an advanced stage of disease.

"The scenario is still worse in case of women who tend to ignore themselves and this is the key reason for poor survival and high mortality rates of cancer patients," said Kumar.

"We felt there is a pressing need to create awareness amongst the population about the gynaecological cancers in women such that women are motivated to opt for routine screening and early detection of these cancers," added Kumar.

According to doctors, cancers of the female reproductive tract along with breast form 50-60 percent of all cancers among women in India.
