“Early detection of Lethal cancer is fundamental to treating patients more effectively”. When cancer care is delayed or inaccessible there is a lower chance of survival, greater complications associated with treatment and higher costs of care. Early diagnosis improves cancer outcomes by providing care at the earliest possible stage and is therefore an important public health strategy in all aspects.
