What Increases the Risk of Cancer?
Medical studies say that
40% of all cancers are
preventable.
• Consumption of alcohol and tobacco
• Being overweight
• Lesser intake of fruits and vegetables
• Lack of exercise
• Sexually transmitted viruses like HPV
• Air pollution and smoke from use of
solid fuels in the house
Factors that increase the risk of
cancer:
Take a Few Precautions
• Control occupational hazards,
such as exposure to toxic
chemicals.
• Get vaccinated against the
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)
and hepatitis-B virus (HBV).
• Reduce exposure to sunlight
and always have a sunscreen
handy.
Detect It Early
• Get diagnosed early
• Get screened with tests like
VIA and PAP Smear
• Get educated on the best
treatments availableCancers such as breast cancer,
cervical cancer, colon cancer
and oral cancer can be cured
better if they are detected early
and treated properly.
To reduce cancer mortality, it is
important to:
When There’s No Cure…
…there’s Palliative Care:
• Palliative care is treatment to relieve,
rather than cure the symptoms of
cancer.
• It is often home-based and can be
administered via oral medicines.
• It helps to reduce the pain caused by
cancer in a patient suffering from
terminal stages of the disease.
Support a Cancer Patient - 1
Cancer is one of the hardest
diseases to deal with – both for
the patient, and their loved ones.
When someone you know is
suffering from cancer, it isn’t
always easy to offer them the
right kind of support.
Support a Cancer Patient - 2
DO DON’T
• Learn to listen
• Offer practical help
• Accompany them to
treatment
• Look after yourself
• Add a touch of humour
• Help them find a wig
• Put pressure on them to be brave
• Comment on their appearance
• Share stories about other cancer
patients
• Offer advice unless asked
• Treat them like a child or hide things
from them
• Be afraid to touch or hug
The Future of Chemotherapy - 1
Side effects:
• Nausea
• Lethargy
• Depression
• Hair lossChemotherapy is the most
prevalent form of cancer
treatment. It consists of drugs
administered to the patient orally,
or intravenously, to stop the growth
of cancer cells.
The Future of Chemotherapy - 2
• The treatment may be administered by a
team of specialist nurses who provide
home care to patients.
• The process is estimated to take a few
hours, wherein the drug is pumped out of
a pouch the patient must wear for that
duration.
• It is not clear how many patients can
benefit from this service, but it is
estimated to make treatment available
more widely in a comfortable setting which
reduces the burden on cancer patients.
Stay Prepared – Get Critical Illness Cover
Cancer treatment has the potential to
eat up all your savings and is a huge,
long-term drain on the household
income. However, one can always
ensure that they are prepared to take
on the financial burden.
To know more visit the Bajaj Allianz
website – www.bajajallianz.com or

Cancer is one of the diseases that
come under the list of critical

possible, and treatment and care
are a lengthy, expensive process.
