Dr. Kanika Gupta has been leading OPDs in the region and has successfully treated on several critical gynae cancer patients here.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Kanika (Principal Consultant- Gynae Oncology, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Vaishali) said, “ Due to the lack of cancer awareness and dearth of proper screening facilities in tier 2 and 3 cities, most women report at advanced stages, adversely affecting the treatment and care.
Over the last decade Gynaecological Cancer cases have shown a rapid increase. This is both owing to better diagnosis and actual rise in incidents. However, it is a curable disease, provided it gets diagnosed at an early stage. Treatment in advanced stages in patients can involve multiple modalities of treatment and chances of reduced post-treatment life expectancy. We have been treating several challenging and complex cases of cancer from this, which validates their growing trust in our services and care.”
