Cancer awareness is a must for all in this twenty-first century individuals, with us facing a large burden of cancer. All of us have at least one close relative/friend/neighbor directly or indirectly affected by cancer. In India, the annual incidence of cancers diagnosed and recorded is 1.1 million new cases, about 7.8% of the global incidence of 187 countries. And about 70-80% of all different cancers are diagnosed in advanced stages III/IV, where the prognosis is poor and a 20% cure rate is observed. On the other hand, the cancers diagnosed in early stages I/II have a good prognosis with 80% cure rates. The late awareness is perhaps due to ignorance, fear, perceived stigma, anticipated suffering, expenses to be incurred on the diagnosis of cancer in an individual and the family members.
