Jan 30 : 'I Am and I Will' is the theme ahead of World Cancer Day 2020, an empowering call for personal commitment to reduce the growing impact of cancer.

World Cancer Day, organized by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and celebrated each year on 4 February, is an opportunity to rally the international community to end the injustice of preventable suffering from cancer.

This year’s theme, “I can, we can” acknowledges that everyone has the capacity to address the cancer burden. We can work together to reduce cancer risk factors. We can overcome barriers to early diagnosis, treatment and palliative care. We can work together to improve cancer control and achieve global targets to reduce premature mortality from cancer and NCDs.

In view of WORLD CANCER DAY, Father Muller Medical College Hospital is conducting a free cancer screening week from 03 February 2020(Monday) to 08 February 2020 (Saturday) in the OPD room no.19 from 9.00 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.

The following facilities will be offered to all out-patient with a 50% concession :
USG Abdomen/pelvis, Mammography/ sonomammogram and Pap smear

This is an initiative by the Father Muller Medical College to help the public in need of screening to maintain their health and quality of life.

The Administrator FMMCH, Rev. Fr Rudolph Ravi D’Sa wishes that many people come to avail the facility offered by the department of OBG. Women neglect their health while caring for the family; it’s time women do regular checkups and are stronger and healthier for a better society.
