The Rising Global Epidemic
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

World health care society is struggling to curb the growth of cancer, one of the deadly disease that peoples are facing. The awareness on cancer into significance recently due to the effort of international organisations and governments. The most recent effort launched by World Health Organisation (WHO) to curb and to cure the epidemic by launching Global Cancer country profiles. WHO said that this profile will enhance the surveillance and thereby, the health care community can derive better plans to battle the cancer according to the statistics of number of people affected and the number of annual mortality. The contemporary data on cancer burden is the required one since the available source on cancer numbers are 3 to 4 years behind, as well it needs to estimate the trends and help to analyse the future trend.

Why is there an immediate need for cancer awareness?

There is no relevant report supporting cancer statistics after 2012 and it might be one of the reasons that health care society failed to reach all the affected people. According to the report in 2012, Cancer is the leading cause of deaths in the world accounting for 8.2 million deaths and 14.2 million new cases in 2012 alone. If the world should not take appropriate step, it forecasted that the new cases in cancer will grow 70% higher than the present situation in 2050. If it grows in the current pace, it will be a great challenge to health care society and this alarming rise stresses the need for immediate attention against the cancer. Lung cancer is the prevalent form which accounts for 13% in total cancer patients in 2012, but the rising concern is the breast cancer in recent years. In 2012, 1.7 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer and its incidence is increased by 20% since 2008. According to World Health Organisation (WHO) low and middle-income countries are experiencing a double burden with the rise in breast cancer and cervical cancer which has become the top killer of women who are under 30 years. Also, the mortality rate of breast cancer has increased by 14% and accounts for 522,000 deaths in 2012. The rapid change in lifestyle of people in developing countries is important reason for the acceleration of breast cancer in women. Already it is the major form found in one in four women with cancer in 140 countries out of 184. The increase in number of new cases and increase in women with breast cancer are the serious issue which needs to address soon.

How to control the preventable cancer?

According to ecigsopedia, tobacco is the major factor for cancer development and increase in young deaths every year. The incidence of cancer has many other factors, however, curbing the usage of tobacco is the only controllable measure to prevent smoking-based cancer. To create and spread awareness world countries created the cancer day as global initiative which stresses the governments and individuals to take action against preventable cancer. Also, World Health Organisation called the world countries to increase the tax on tobacco products to diminish the usage of them and it has implemented in few countries which have given better results. With the current pace of cancer, the preventive measures will not support the complete eradication, the global countries have to discuss altogether to draw a better result
