What Can You Tell us Cancer is  ?
Group of diseases characterized by loss of control of the multiplication of cells resulting in the development of enlarging clumps of cells (tumors)

Causes of Cancer
A: Many things can cause cancer from sporadic mutations in genes, hereditary factors, Environmental Agents, Physical factors e.g. radiation and other Chemicals e.g. asbestos

Of the magnitude of Cancer figures in Nigeria
A: It is fast on the rise, and today we have about 102,079 new cancer cases per year,71,571 cancer deaths annually and Probably a marked under-estimation. It IS most pathetic g that Cancer registration in Nigeria is markedly incomplete. And the Risk of getting cancer before age 75

The most common cancer in women is Women
Breast, Cervix and Colorectal, while children are Burkitt’s Lymphoma,Leukemia Retinoblastoma and Wilms tumor, while in Men we have Prostate, Liver And Colorecta

Why is Cancer a Quick Killer in Nigeria?
A: It is quick killer in Nigeria because of of Africans attitude to lateness .Late presentation!!!
Very few screening centers before now, no center completely focused on cancer treatment

In truth cancer does not mean death .About 30% of all cancers are preventable, it can b e prevented by total stop of Tobacco. Alcohol, Dietary factors, Physical Inactivity, at least regular two times a week exercise. Overweight & Obesity and regular eating of fresh fruits and fish and less consumption of red meat

Please tell us about some of the deadly cancer around
A: We have quite a number of few deadly cancers like Cervical Cancer…  Cervical Causes  deaths many deaths per year 
Mortality rates vary 17-fold b/w differ  regions mainly due to screening (Pap smear)
Then we have Prostate Cancer – Commonest cancer in males 
Can be detected early PSA test Rectal exam. Annual screening from 40 years
Then again, another deadly cancer is breast cancer commonest female cancer in Nigeria
Can be detected even before a lump is evident
Mammography from 40 years of age (consider 35 years)
Clinical breast exam and Self breast exam is very vital, and we are open to help all Nigerians from all walks of life have a text on the state of their health There is also the Colon Cancer. Which is Increasing incidence in our society of late It usually Start at 50 years and Precancerous growths (polyps) can be detected and removed early

On  likely Cancer treatment
A: To a large extent, treatment Depends on stage (extent) of the cancer, the way forward includes, Surgery ,Chemotherapy Radiation therapy, Hormonal therapy and  Molecular therapy
Community Health Education can also help play a huge role to eliminate cancer, like Public Awareness. Example what cancer is? Eliminate cultural barriers to care. Lifestyle Modifications Screening and Early Detection
