March is designated as world women’s month.
The celebrations which were originally meant for US women only has spread worldwide and now every organisation on the planet observes it.
There’s no greater way to celebrate women than to ensure that they are healthy, working and succeeding.
Women are very important to the welfare of communities.
One of the many health issues women face is the problem of cancer.
However, a simple check-up, regularly, will keep cancer away.
Research shows that cancer is rising in Kenya, but one can get ahead with regular checkups.
In Kenya, cancer is the 3rd leading cause of death after infectious and cardiovascular diseases, this is according to International Agency for Research in Cancer (IARC).
According to the National Cancer Institute of Kenya, the five most common cancers in Kenya are breast, cervical, prostate, esophageal, and colorectal.
IARC research also established that, as of 2018, there were 47,887 new cases of cancer annually with a mortality of 32,987.
This represents close to 45% increase in incidence compared to the previous report that estimated 37,000 new cancer cases annually with an annual mortality of 28,500 in 2012.
Regular screening has been shown to catch any type of cancer early on, making it easier to treat.
