  • Mutation in colorectal cancer genes: colonoscopy screening should be started in young 20s-30s, or 10 years earlier than youngest family member affected.
  • RET oncogene mutation can opt for prophylactic thyroidectomy for thyroid cancer prevention in childhood.
  • Recommendation is to consider genetic counselling and appropriate genetic test for cancer prevention in cancer of early age onset and cancers belonging to family of cancer susceptibility syndromes.

Screening Mantra

Goal of cancer screening tests is to detect cancer at earliest possible stages. Many screening methods are way more helpful than you think.

  • Pap Smear: regular screening with pap smear has shown >30% decrease in cervical cancer mortality. It is recommended to do pap smear from age 21-65 years every 3 yearly. From 30-65 years pap test with HPV DNA every 5 yearly can also be done,
  • Mammography: bilateral breast mammography every 2 yearly starting at age of 50 years is very helpful in early detection of breast cancer.
  • Low dose CT Chest: helpful in lung cancer early detection in chronic heavy smokers between age 55-74 years.
  • Colonoscopy: at 50 years of age screening for colorectal cancer should be discussed with healthcare providers.

How Suregry is Best Solution?

Surgery is best chance of cure in most of solid organ tumors. It’s a fact that 80% of cancer patients will require surgery during their course of disease yet only 25% were able to receive safe and effective surgery in time. At the same time it is important to assess that which patients can benifits from  Surgical Interventions



  • Cure of precancer condition.
  • Most effective treatment for majority of solid tumors. 

Early Detection

  • Biopsy under Surgical Oncologist advise.
  • Very early lesions can be excised directly.
  • In uncertain diagnosis, surgery versus observation.

Act Early

  • Resection with adequate margins and lymph nodes achieves best possible cure.
  • Most cost-effective treatment. 
  • Curative for limited operable metastatic disease.
